Amarillo Villas is located just 70m from the sea, in the stunningly beautiful bay of Sevid. We built the villa 10 years ago to a very high standard, and the layout of the 3 floors was designed to be spacious and open plan. We rent the property out either as a whole house or three self contained apartments. Each floor is 80sqm in size, with a large balcony that is 20sqm in size. The floor space of each apartment is approximately double the size of a standard Croatian apartment. There is ample off road parking for 4 cars. The well established and secluded garden is one of the highlights of our property which includes a 150 year old olive tree, a variety of citrus trees, cherry trees, a fig tree and an almond tree, along with a variety of other plants and herbs. You are welcome to help yourself to any of the fruits, should they be in season when you are there. The mosaic tiled swimming pool is perfect for cooling off and children always love making friends with our dolphin George, who lives at the bottom of the pool. Poolside loungers and parasols are provided, perfect for relaxing by the pool. There is a large poolside BBQ and there are two swings for children. The indoor and outdoor furniture was imported from the UK. The solid wooden sleigh beds with high quality sprung mattresses guarantee a good nights sleep. Each balcony has a solid teak dining table and four chairs, ideal for al-fresco dining and the solid teak steamers are perfect for relaxing, whilst enjoying the sea views. Each apartment has an indoor dining area with a large table and four chairs, and all the kitchens are fully equipped with the luxury of fan ovens and gas hobs, allowing you the option of eating in. The house has internet TV and full wireless internet access, which will work even by the pool. There are 2 spacious bedrooms on each floor, the master bedrooms have a large double bed, and the second bedrooms have 2 singles, there are also 3 good quality fold away beds with sprung mattresses and slatted bases, in case of extra guests, therefore sleeping 5 guests in each apartment. Each bathroom has a shower, and the bathrooms on the 1st and 2nd floor, both have full size jacuzzi baths. Guests are also permitted the use of a canoe, perfect for exploring the bay and there is also a mooring for a 7m boat (boat not supplied). Boats can be hired locally or in nearby Trogir.
Sevid offers the ideal location for a relaxing holiday with spectacular views of untouched Mediterranean landscape and crystal clear waters, that are perfect for swimming, snorkelling, water sports and exploring the bay. There is a small local shop, which supplies daily fresh bread and cakes, along with a large variety of everyday supplies, and two restaurants/bars.
I manufacture laminated bamboo garden umbrella's which are sold world wide. My wife is a nursery school teacher and we live in a small village near Guildford with our two daughter who are 8 and 10 years old. We all love Croatia and Sevid and it is like being at home.
Espa Faupel purchased this villa in 2003
Before we built the house in Sevid my wife and I spent in total of a few months traveling from the north of Croatia to Dubrovnik in the South and Sevid stood out from everywhere as a hidden gem. Sevid is the most easterly point of the Croatian coast and is known to have the clearest waters in Croatia. The small tranquil village of holiday villas overlooks 2 bays, set on a peninsular shaped like a whales tail and several islands, and on a clear day you can see as far as Island Hvar and Island Vis.
70 meters from crystal clear sea.

This villa is one of my favourite places in the world! It's the perfect place to relax in peace and quiet with stunning views from the top apartment, beautiful clear sea, your own private pool, stunning weather and all the home comforts you need. The villa itself has everything you need and is clean and homely in all the right ways! You will need a car but driving is easy and there are plenty of places nearby to visit and dine! The villa also comes with a gorgeous tabby cat (Roger Pebbles) who was born there - he likes whiskas and milk - just saying! :) - book now - you won't regret it!!
We stayed in the first floor apartment which was clean and spacious, the balcony offered stunning views towards the sea. It would be practical to have a car, although there is a small supermarket in the village there are few other facilities . Overall the apartment was excellent value for money, and a great location.
Stayed with girl friends in the middle apartment, all mod cons, great views and close to the sparkling clear sea.
Everyone enjoyed their stay.
I rented the villa for me, my husband and all my children, son and daughter in law and all 8 grandchildren from the age of 4 till 12 years old. We were 16 altogether and had a wonderful time.
The Croatian Sea is just marvelous, clear, salt and refreshing for swimming. It takes only 2 minutes to walk from the house to the sea. And we went swimming frequently. We stayed most of the time at the house around the pool where the kids were mostly in the pool playing. There were nice sunbeds around the pool and parasols. It was nice to stay in the shadow, as the weather was hot.
The 3 families had their own apartment, and I and my husband stayed with one of them. There were plenty of space both inside and outside around the premises.
Bruno, a neighbor and housekeeper, looked after the pool cleaning every morning. He was a nice guy.
There were two restaurants in the neighborhood only 10 minutes walk away. And we visited both of them, nice food and cheap. The restaurant, Tony; was the cheapest, and is situated next to the shop where you could buy food. The locals used this restaurant. The other restaurant was in the opposite direction going north, a bit more cozy and decorated.
Sevid is a little peninsula with small houses and villaes, quiet, not many tourists, and the people staying there were especially nice. The road from the main road getting there is narrow, sometimes steep and bumpy. We had some difficulty in finding the house. But the locals in the restaurant helped us. We had two cars, which was convenient for buying food at the market in Trogir.
We stayed around the house most of the time. We did not visit any other places.
I can warmly recommend a weeks stay at Amarillo Villa for a big family.
My friend and i were in need of a quiet and relaxing holiday, that's what we had !
We stayed in the ground floor apartment, it was very spacious, clean, comfortable, and well equipped with modern appliances.
outside we had a large veranda with teak table and chairs, perfect for alfresco dinning.
in the garden we had full use of the hot tub, swimming pool although we had to share that with 'George' a friendly dolphin !! we didn't use the bbq but it looked clean and well kept.
from the apartment it is a 2 minute walk to the sea, there is no beach as such but you have use of a private jetty with steps into the most chrystal clear sea.
Along the sea front is a local village shop that stocks all the essentials you need to get you by.The owners where also staying at the apartments while we were there, they were very welcoming and so helpful with ideas of places to see and great restaurant's to try.
i would highly recommend to anyone to go to Croatia and stay at Amarillo apartments its stunningly beautiful, great people, fabulous food.
Cant wait to go back next year
Had an excellent stay at Amarillo Villas, found the apartments to be larger than expected and and well appointed, we were able to use the pool and BBQ and enjoy sea views from the first floor apartment. It is the ideal spot for a relaxing holiday, i very much enjoyed swimming in the crystal clear waters of the coastline. I even bought a snorkel while away and was amazed at how deep you could see and how many species of fish swim so close to shore. Enjoyed it so much i forgot myself and caught the sun on my back that day.
We ate a few nights but enjoyed many a meal sat on the balcony watching the sun fade away and talking over the days events with a couple of glasses of wine.
The owner Espa was a pleasure to deal with, very friendly and accommodating. We will be looking to book here again.
