“Nice house in peaceful surroundings”
Reviewed 17 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This is a recently built house with high quality décor and comfortable furniture. The house has everything you need for your holiday. Dee was very helpful providing information beforehand and the property manager, Michele, was very helpful once we arrived and booked trips etc for us. There is one good restaurant within close walking distance (Villa Calussovo) although a car is needed to get out to other eating places. The local town of Rabac has some lovely beaches although they were very crowded as we visited in peak season.

“Lovely House Near Labin, Croatia”
Reviewed 18 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The house is situated in a quiet area close to Labin and Rabac. The house is modern with great facilities including a lovely pool, barbecue, lots of sun loungers and a great outside eating area. A car is definitely required to get you to the places that you need to visit, including old Labin, Pula, and a number of different beaches. Dee, the owner, and the property manager Michele, were extremely helpful, with Michele's local knowledge ensuring we knew where to go and what to do. All the local restaurants are worth trying, with both the food and drink being really good and cheap. The locals are all very friendly. The highlight for us was hiring a speedboat for a day through Michele and visiting an island and remote beaches. We loved Croatia and Dee's House.

“wonderful, relaxing holiday in Dee's house”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

My husband, 3 children and I had a great time here. The villa is comfortable, clean and spacious, with the private pool providing many hours of enjoyment.
Dee, the owner, and Michele, the house manager, were both extremely helpful and friendly. Dee answered all emails so quickly and fully, plus provided very comprehensive notes on the area. The warm and inviting Croatian neighbours are lovely and really make you feel welcome. It is also good to have such a lovely family run restaurant within walking distance - Calussovo.
The Old Town of Labin is truly beautiful with the cakes from Velo Cafe being the real 'icing on the cake' - they are magnificent. Pizza Napoli opposite is also very good and the evening train that runs from the car park down to the square is an added bonus when you have tired children!
We celebrated our youngest daughter's 5th birthday at dinopark with the circus and stunt team acts providing great entertainment. Seeing a dolphin during our 1 hour boat trip in Rovinj was magical and this harbour town has great charm. The tiny beach at Sv Marina is idealic and my husband and eldest two children spent several hours snorkelling here.
We found the Croatian food excellent quality and very reasonable, with lots of beautiful places to visit.
Thank you Dee and the people of Istria for allowing us such a wonderful holiday.

“Peaceful Paradise at Dee's Place”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This house is modern functional funky elegance. The bedrooms are quite comfortable and the pool well-kept. Dee's place is the perfect place as a base to explore the area. The restaurants nearby are wonderful. Rabac (and the sea) is a 15 minute drive away. Labin (closest city) is a gem. We were met by Michele to get our keys and he could not have been more helpful or informative. We loved this place and highly recommend it.

“Terrific place - terrific holiday”
Reviewed 25 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We were so lucky to find this house - it's an excellent holiday venue with all the facilities you could possibly want. The weather was great for our week there and we took full advantage of the pool area to sunbathe. Perhaps slightly too early in the summer for the pool but we went for it anyway and it was fine once in.

The owner was incredibly helpful in giving us advice and answering our questions in advance of our stay and her restaurant tips were spot on. Due Fratelli is close by and we eat there a couple of times - very friendly and helpful staff and good food. Also excellent standard food at Velo Caffe in Old Labin - well worth a visit, if only for the cake and ice-cream. We'd not visited Croatia before and didn't know quite what to expect but it is a beautiful country and plenty of great places to visit in Istria - Rovinj, Pula, Opatiji and none of them take very long to reach.

Another bonus is that the cost of living is very low, certainly for British visitors. We were continually amazed at the great value when eating out, even at top quality restaurants. Would definitely consider Crotia again.
