From inside the bedrooms into the terrace
One of the bedrooms - I love the colours and neat simplicity
Same bedroom - excuse the darkness, this house was made to keep cool in the shade
The second big and airy bedroom with super king size bed
And wardrobe space to host an army
The open plan kitchen when you have had enough of restaurants
Different angle, same homey feeling.
Cosy rustic in the dining area
Have a glass of wine in the afternoon breeze on the terrace
Walk for ten minutes to this beautiful pristine bay
If the two supermarkets around the house don't have it, this has it - groceries stand across water

“Lovely accommodation”
Reviewed 11 August 2016 for a stay in July 2015

Great accomodation right in the middle of this tiny village, all amenities, nice furnishings. Lovely to sit on the deck and eat breakfast. Only downside is very unfriendly neighbours and the locals don't seem to like tourists. But couldn't fault the accomodation

“great appartment in brilliant location”
Reviewed 15 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We loved our stay in Vrboska. The appartment is spacious, very comfortable and clean, and very well equipped. Sitting on the balcony in the morning and evenings was hugely enjoyable and, despite being so central, it never got noisy. The only downsides were the lack of air conditioning units (though Lena left us a mobile one), as it was very hot during our stay, and issues with the kitchen electrical arrangements, which led to blown fuses. Lena did her best to resolve this quickly.

“very relaxing place”
Reviewed 31 August 2014 for a stay in June 2014

An amazing view you can enjoy from a big balcony - plenty of space to have all your family seated there. The flat is very clean; rooms are spacious. Centrally located and just minutes away from the beach! Great restaurants in close proximity. We really had a great time!

“A perfect place to stay in Croatia”
Reviewed 29 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

From the initial enquiry, the owner of the apartment was very accommodating and communicative. On arrival, there is a host to meet you and show you how everything works, give local information etc.

The flat itself is lovely, newly decorated and very attractively done. It is spacious, with large double bedrooms (both can be made up into double or twin beds). Both rooms lead out onto a lovely terrace. The kitchen is very well-equipped, more than you will possibly need on holiday, even if you are a very keen cook. There's a good amount of space to eat at the table in the kitchen although we ate outside on the terrace every day. The living room/reading room is next to the kitchen - it's comfy and cool but we didn't spend much time in there, preferring to be outside on the terrace, so it probably is feasible to use it as an extra sleeping space although we didn't need to (there's a sofabed). The bathroom has a decent shower with lots of hot water and there's a separate toilet, also very convenient. There are portable air conditioning units in each bedroom which is handy if the nights are very hot, although in July we found that having the doors to the balconies open was mostly sufficient.

The amenities provided go way beyond that of typical holiday lets, especially in this price bracket. Great coffee maker, dishwasher, washing machine, lots of kitchen utensils, library of interesting books, portable sunbeds to take down to the sea, umbrellas...pretty much everything you could want. The whole place has a feeling of generosity and warmth about it.

However good the apartment is - and it is wonderful - the location is the star. It overlooks the small harbour/inlet in Vrboska and the view is very pretty. It is shaded for most of the day so it's comfortable to sit and read but the sun does reach it late in the afternoon, making sunbathing possible (you just have to move your deckchair!). It's on the first floor (two short flights of stairs) and downstairs is a great cafe/bar, which we thought would be noisy at night but isn't at all. If you're after complete silence then I guess you won't be looking for an apartment in the middle of the village anyway. The promenade below is car-free so it really is a people (and boat) watching vantage point. There was a free concert one evening and we had a grandstand view of the whole thing from the terrace.

A few doors down to the left are two great bakeries for breakfast pastries and there are two decent supermarkets in the same street. The local restaurants are of a good standard and there are enough of them to keep anyone happy even if you never leave Vrboska to eat elsewhere: there's a very good pizzeria (although this one gets very busy with families so probably best to book in high season) and good fish restaurants on 'your' side of the water, with two excellent konobas with fantastic BBQ grills just a couple of minutes' stroll across the bridge on the other side (the one with the fake donkey outside does amazing grilled meats Croatian style and has a good wine selection). There are also a couple of nice places a little bit up the hill behind the marina, offering fantastic views.

There are many spots to sunbathe and swim on either side of the inlet, starting just ten minutes' walk from the apartment. If you wander along the path opposite a little further, you will find dozens of places along the rocky shore with both sun and shade from the scented pines, where you can base yourself for the day, often with nobody else around. There is a busier beach about 20 minutes' walk along that path, with a great restaurant directly behind the small beach and next to the campsite, serving decent food in relaxed, open-air surroundings. Beyond that beach, there are more opportunities to find yourself a private spot for swimming - the water is crystal clear and completely safe for swimming with no waves or currents to speak of.

The bus stop for regular buses to the rest of the island is a couple of minutes' walk across the little bridge (the village 'square') and it's also possible to walk along the coast road to Jelsa - it's a very pleasant walk through the pine forest next to the sea. Jelsa is bigger, busier and a bit more lively in the evenings with several very good restaurants and a couple of bigger supermarkets. Unless you want to explore all over the island, I don't think a hire car is necessary - buses and bikes and walking trails are all available. You can rent bicycles just downstairs from the apartment. There's also little boats to hire for half a day/per day, straight across from the apartment on the other side of the inlet (rental office just by the bridge). There's at least one ATM - nearest one is on the same street as the apartment.

The village -and the apartment - have everything you could want for a relaxing holiday. It's very pretty with its canals and little bridges (I can see why it's known as Little Venice) but is right by the sea with all the holiday activities that offers. There is enough nightlife to keep most people happy without it encroaching on the peaceful vibe that is also present. It's about as different from Hvar Town as it's possible to be so if you're looking for that kind of high-octane nightlife, Vrboska is probably not the right destination for you. For everyone else, it comes highly recommended all round, especially if you're lucky enough to stay at this apartment!

My friend and I stayed here for a five days and had a great time. The flat was spacious and had all that we needed. The location is ideal. We walked to town shopping, restaurants, and night life. Enjoyed a terrific meal at the Lunatic rooftop. The near by beach was clear blue and tranquil which is just over a mile away. I would stay here again.

“QUIET PARADISE”
Reviewed 22 August 2014 for a stay in August 2012

My favorite thing about this place: the evenings! After a great day in the sun and wind, when you get home the only thing you want is to pour a glass of your favorite wine and relax as the day fades away. No need to go out, in "town" as the best area of the village is around you.

I have really, (rephrase that:) REALLY enjoyed sitting the evenings out, on the balcony, best spot in the village, watching other happy people having fun in their holidays. The place is cozy, intimate but also in the middle of everything. Feels special.
The flat overlooks the marina, it's interesting to see the small boats traffic under your window.

The whole island is a paradise. I have never had enough days there to enjoy all the nice things you can do. I could suggest, beside lying on your favorite rock over the blue waters:
wind surfing (lessons available, too), kayaking (rental available close to the nudist beach), renting a small boat and discover the surroundings (~50-80E/day, best destination is a deserted island nearby and then lunch at Jelsa in a restaurant on the quay), day trip to Sucuraj (mid-way you will find a charming small pizza place in the middle of nowhere).

I cannot wait the next summer! I plan to be there for at least one week!
