We have recently spent 10 days at this wonderful house together with our two kids. The villa is beautiful and well maintained, you can see that the owners really love this house and have taken good care of it. It is decorated with taste and attention to detail, no object is out of place and nothing is missing.  What I appreciated immensely is that it was impeccably clean, even in not so obvious places as the kitchen drawers and cupboards. Is was definitely the cleanest rental house in which I've ever been.
We only used the top floor which has the master bedroom and a second bedroom almost as spacious. The living room is the nicest place to be in the house, it is very spacious, lots of light and a balcony from where you can watch the sunset over the sea. There is also a nice very fashionable SONOS sound system. The ground floor is cooler (Croatia can be extremely hot in July), though some people might complain a little too dark.
The kitchen had everything you needed - saucers, glasses, pans, toaster, coffee machine, dishwasher, washing machine. Everything was new or almost new.
The garden is on various levels and has lots of shade. There are two places with small tables and chairs where you can sit for coffee (or breakfast for two). The inner courtyard behind the house is a great place to have dinner in privacy. There is also a barbecue, sun umbrellas and folding chairs you can take to the beach.
The owners did everything in their power to make us feel welcome. They expected us with a nice cold prosecco :) and provided every info we needed regarding the region and things to do.
The house is directly on the beach - you have only to cross a small street which has little traffic. The beach is not private but since it's at the edge of the town the only people coming to it are those from the two-three holiday houses nearby. There is always space, only during the weekend there were more people. Some great old pine trees give the best shade until 2 pm. There is a bakery 15 meters from the house open all day.
Zaostrog itself is a small town 10-15 minutes walk away. It looked like the usual holiday spot with a few terraces - nothing fancy or elegant however, mostly family-oriented. There are a couple of places you can eat - we enjoyed most the villa Paskal which is halfway to the town and has tables overlooking the sea. The fish & traditional Croatian food were good, though not gourmet. The pizza place in town was also good for the children, esp at lunch. There is a medium-sized Konzum supermarket in Zaostrog which has everything you need. If you want a bigger one there is one in Makarska, 30-40 minutes drive away.
There are a couple of day trips you can make from the villa and the road is a nice place to run in the mornings. Until 8:00AM there is no sun, thanks to the high mountains nearby
We went to Dubrovnik which is of course beautiful but very crowded and extremely hot. You can go by ferry from Ploce or cross the border with Bosnia by mainland. We went on a Thursday and there was no traffic on the road or at the border - 4,5 cars maximum. It took us two hours each way. The road is very picturesque, by the sea all the time. 
On another day we went to Peljesac which is a peninsula famous for its wine and mussels and oysters farm. It's also either by ferry or by crossing the border. Since it was Saturday both were very crowded so it took us 2 hrs instead of the 30 mins it should have. Ston is the town at the entrance to the peninsula and it's beautiful, with fortified walls and the usual zigzag of stone houses and paved roads reminiscent of Italy or Sicily.
Another place you can visit is the island of Hvar, by ferry from Dvrenik, 3 km from the house. Keep in mind that since Hvar is very popular this ferry is crowded no matter the day of the week so expect to take the 2nd or even the 3rd one when queueing. They are supposed to run every 90 minutes but we noticed that during te day they brought an additional one, so it was every 45 minutes. Hvar is very beautiful - you drive on the road up on the hills and see the sea on one side or the other. We did not have time to explore the beaches which are supposed to be great but we did visit the town of Hvar (like Dubrovnik, very hot, beautiful and crowded, with lots of young people out to party) and the town of Stari Grad which was smaller and quieter. On the road you can buy homemade wine and olive oil - the olive oil of Croatia is quite good.
We had a wonderful time at The Spot and would definitely recommend this villa to any family / families looking for a relaxing holiday in a quiet place.
