Appartement Marija ★★★
Midden Dalmatië »
An absolutely amazing place! In my opinion this house has everything you need for a simple and quiet holiday. No disco parties, no disturbing noises, still a foodmarket and some restaurants are only a 15 min walk away. From the balcony you have perhaps the best view in the world to the sea! Picture perfect! + + The host and hostess are living downstairs in the same building. I am still positivily amazed about their helpfulness. This host speaks also fluent German (der Gastgeber spicht auch sehr gut Deutsch). This elderly pair helpd us with the essential first day information about the apartment (shower, cooking, internet, etc) and gave us directions of local beaches, going to the town nearby, grocery shopping, etc. They still gave us the freedom to enjoy much private time of our own.. All ten points for the host family! + + + This house is located at the end of a climbing road. Houses on that area are close to another, but we didnt have any trouble from our neigbours. Many houses hade apartments for rent, but not all of course. This house is a perfect choise for a married couple or for a small group of adults, that enjoy a relatively silent and easy-going holiday. Nothing fancy, but for me this house was just perfect for my needs. We spent a lot time at the big and sunny balcony. During our stay we saw only 2-3 families with small children (=tourists). We were in Okrug Gornji at the end of August. Still the traffic jam disaster was noticable towards the city center/ airport. I am happy to visit this place again, when the second bridge to the mainland has beed opened. When we arrived we took a taxi from the airport. It took 15 minutes and 15-20 euros to get there. I think the taxi ride was worth it. We didnt use the local bus. We found the lacking information and not-reliable timetables troubleing. You can walk almost ewerywhere. Everything you actually need is max 20-30 walk away (f.eg. bigger sand beach and grocery stores). Outside our apartment is a small "Bäckerei". If you are in a big need of something, like ice-cream, bread for breakfast, etc., you find it here. Otherwise i would recommend you take the short walk to the more affordable and bigger stores.
