“Lovely stay”

We spent four terrific weeks in Zvona's loft in Crikvenica in late June and most of July 2014. Huge windows on both ends of the apartment allow for very efficient air circulation even on very hot days.

Ants in the kitchen were a minor problem in the beginning, but we soon figured out how to get rid of them. We bought six insect killing cans and placed them on the most strategic spots on the floor. It took it some three or four days to clean the ants off. Mosquitos are ubiquitous, but they are easier to handle. Neither the ants nor the mosquitos could ruin a perfect holiday in a perfect apartment.

I started every day with a run to either Selce (5km both ways) or Crikvenica (about 11km to Kacjak and back) and a swim afterwards on the nearest beach which is just a minute of walk from the apartment door. The beach is small but good enough for spending hours on, which we frequently did. Really, no need to go any further, the nearest beach is just as good as any other in the vicinity.

We also did a lot of driving, both in the near-by area, going to Rijeka, Opatija, Novi Vinodolski, Senj, smaller hillside places around Crikvenica or the island of Krk, and further destinations, like Pula, Rovinj, many orther beautiful and highly recommendable towns in Istria, Zagreb, Ljubljana, Trieste. One day we even made it all the way down to the island of Rab. It may take some hours of driving, but quite manageable and really rewarding.

Shopping was easy. We picked up the closest supermarket Plodine as our base. It's doable on foot, but we normally drove to skip heavy bag bearing on the way back. Plodine parking is free, whereas the parking at Konzum next to it is not. Parking in downtown was a bit of a headache, so we normally walked there if we wanted to mingle in the crowd a bit, which was also a nice experience.

Zvona's apartment is very well equipped, as everyone else who has stayed here is acknowledging. This is very true. It is also extremely tastefully designed and decorated. The merit of it is that it creates a very comforting environment perfect for relaxation. You simply don't disagree with details, your eyes are resting, your emotions are at peace. We are happy we had a chance to experience it!

The apartment has its separate entrance from the front yard of the house. The lower floor was accupied by Zvona's family the first two weeks and by other gusts the other two weeks. Although people may have different habits and rythm of life, we find this co-existance very easy and graceful. Particularly because the sound insulation is efficient enough to protect you from outside noise, if any.

There is a cleaning lady coming every Saturday, supposedly at 10.00, to clean the apartment, change the towels, etc. We hadn't known about the cleaning lady until a day before the first Saturday. Since we absolutely had to leave the apartment for some two hours, it came as an oops moment. Saturday, at 10, out -- it's early! Next Saturday the cleaning lady walked in on us at 9.30. My wife speaks a bit Croatian, so we could agree that next time the cleaning lagy would not come before 10.00. Besides the oops moment, the cleaning lady is really gentle, professional, attentive and helpful. And after all you need your towels changed!

All in all, an extremely pleasant experience and a terrific stay!

We were full of expectation when we arrived at the loft wish was supposed to be a peacefull location... When we arrived we saw that there was a large building under construction right next to the loft. The noise of drills, hammers, machines, saws went on the whole day, even in the weekend! We were not able to sit on the terrace, and had to keep the door closed. On top of that the two dogs of the neighbours on the other side were barking loud day and night. A very stressfull experience. We contacted the owner Zvona and told her that we would leave after two days, we told her we found it unfair that she did not give us the information in advance and give us the chance to cancel. Back home she promised us in an amail that she would refund us for the 2 lost nights and apologised. Unfortunately she did not keep her promise and did not refund us. We are very dissapointed and want to warn future customers if they are looking for peace and quiet they should NOT go there.

Review was writen after I have asked the guest how come they used the towels and whole linens in the house without asking.
Unfortunately I will never use the language the LADY used to describe my house, my housekeeper and how clean the house was.
Please see all the rest of the review to get a clear picture.
