The whole peninsular can be walked in around one hour and there are numerous locations for private bathing or busier beaches. The main beach has restaurant, grill, and bathroom/shower facilities. There are also several naturist beaches for those looking for an all-over tan. The Dalmatian coastline is mainly rocky, but in the water there is sand. This accounts for the crystal clear waters.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in Main Deck apartment last august and we want to recommend everyone Coral C villa. We had great holiday and we just booked it for two weeks this year. Location is fantastic and apartment is very spacious, nicely decorated, and clean, kitchen is well stocked and all in all one of the best private accommodations we ever had. I must say that pictures on the advert do not do any justice to this place. We highly recommend Coral C villa and we are looking forward to go back.

Date of stay: last week July and first week of August 2008

We were 2 families who stayed in the Main Deck and The Bridge apartments for 2 weeks. (Both families have 2 kids, 6 and 8 years old).

We are very satisfied with both the apartments and the place and will recommend the apartments for our friends. We think we got good value for our money!

Vrboska is a very beautiful and picturesque place with very nice surroundings. It is suitable for people who don’t want too much noise. If you want more street life you may go to Jelsa and the city of Hvar in the evenings by bus.

There are beautiful bathing places within a short walk from the apartments and there are a lot of places to visit with bus and boats; Jelsa, city of Hvar, Bol ++.

Use Google Earth and search for Vrboska and look at the pictures of the place!

Very nice!

Beautiful apartment at lovely old village

  • 5 of 5

Perfect relaxing holiday accommodation! Upon arrival we were greeted with fresh fruits and cold drinks. Apartment was more then sufficient for 4 adults and 3 kids. Maja was very kind to bring Wii for the kids that they used for entire holiday and we want to say thank you one more time for all the help and assistance during our holiday and of course for all the treats for kids. We are looking forward to coming to Vrboska again.

Vacances de mai ensoleillée sur une île croate

  • 5 of 5

J'ai loué le plus grand appartement dans cette jolie maison, deux grande terrasse couverte avec barbecue disponible et toutes les facilités. Idéal pour des vacances en famille, ou bien comme moi entre amis. A 50 mètres de la crique et a moins de 5 min (a pied) d'une première plage et 15 min d'une deuxième plus grande...

Point fort, la maison dispose d'un garage privatif et est situé dans un village vivant avec plusieurs restaurant et bar très attractifs.

Je recommande cet appartement et cette île pour profite de vacances ensoleillées.

A lovely villa, better than we ever imagined.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived exhausted at Coral C villa after a long journey and were immediately relaxed and thrilled by our apartment: Main Deck. It was spotless, spacious and to be honest much nicer than we had expected. The whole family was delighted. We particularly liked being able to walk directly on to the large private terrace from the bedrooms. Although it was not hot at this time of the year the owner had kindly turned the air conditioning on and as an added touch left us a welcome pack in the fridge which was gratefully received.

Too tired to use the lovely outdoor dining and BBQ area we took a short stroll into the village along the water front and visited Restaurant Skojic. A very nice pizzeria and a free bottle of wine when we told the owner we were guests of Coral C villa.

We slept very well and was only awakened by the village church bells. The owner very kindly provided us with freshly baked bread and coffee and juices for breakfast.

There are numerous local beaches to suit every taste. The most popular beach, where there is a restaurant and other facilities is about 15 minutes walk or two mins by car, but closer to home there are very nice swimming spots just 50 metres from the villa. We spent the day at the further beaches and enjoyed evening dips closer to home then a stroll into the village where there are numerous restaurants with local seafood, pastas and other more local dishes which are well worth trying.

We hired bicycles and explored nearby villages and found secluded beaches. On one day we rented a car to visit the capital of the island: Hvar town, athough there is a reliable and cheap bus service. The kids loved Coral C villa and Vrboska and it was nice to let them go out to the village on their own as the village is pedestrianised: so no cars to worry about.

All in all we were delighted with the property, the hosting was excellent and we had a relaxing and very enjoyable holiday. We will definitely return. Our thanks for a great holiday never to be forgotten.

Hvar Island is situated on the Dalmatian coast and has been voted in the top 10 most beautiful islands in the world by National Geographic readers. Fly directly to Split airport and then a short (1 hour) ferry trip from Split harbour brings you to the town of Stari Grad and then a short (10 minute) ride to the picturesque waterfront village of Vrboska. Coral Sea Villa is located just a few minutes walk from the village centre and miles of untouched beaches. The village has a wide range of restaurants, bars, shops and activities to suit all tastes. Steeped in history the winding back alleys and ancient churches offer something of interest for all ages. Nearby villages and towns offer alternative entertainment and of course the famous capital of the island, Hvar town, if you enjoy rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous.

Other Activities: olive and grape picking, historical exploration
