This house is most probably the best place to stay on the Makarska Riviera. The location is amazing, surrounded by a lush garden with fig,olive and citrus trees. The owners are the most friendly house owners we have ever experienced. They gave us a very cordial welcome with dalmatian prosciutto, cheese, wine, their own grapes and figs (which were the sweetest we have ever tasted). The house is perfectly equipped, every detail is well thought of and made with love. The house owner even put up a swing on one of the trees in front of the house. This ended up being our daughter's favorite place during our entire stay. After swimming, she would just sit there, close her eyes and enjoy! The beach is just down the road from the house and it is indeed the best beach in that area. It is surrounded by pine trees which offer nice shade during hot summer days and the near-by hotel has the best ice-cream in Tucepi. We went out for dinners almost every night, but loved the most, returning to our house, just sitting in our quiet, romantic garden and enjoying a glass of wine. The wine cellar is amazing, we have tried some of the best home-made liquors and sorts we have never even heard of :). I did not think I would be using the gym since it was very hot when we were there, but it ended up being a nice routine for me each morning. The gym area is in the shadow in the morning, so I opened up the windows, turned the music on and started with energy into the day. The nice cold shower in the garden after that was just perfect. One extra highlight: the owners noticed in my passport that I had my birthday during our stay at the house. They came by that morning bringing delicous sweets and another bottle of their wine! Our entire stay was really perfect and we will be definitely returning!!!!! Thank you so so much!!!!!

Had a fabulous 10 days at this villa.
It sits on its own at the edge of Tucepi - near to the main beach (5 mins), and a 5-10 minute walk to a lovely small cove. Near enough to be able to walk and get food but far out enough that there is little noise and a feeling of having the area to yourself. Surrounded with a productive garden (figs, herbs, apples, tomatoes etc) and an outside dining area with a wood oven - so it feels very spacious.
The best bit was the outside shower with the most fantastic view of the mountain - very cooling having come back from the beach. I didn't bother using the indoor shower for the duration of our stay.
We were made very welcome with drinks and nibbles as we arrived and the place was very clean. The family also gave us a lift to the supermarket as we didn't have a car - which we really appreciated. There were bikes and there are small supermarkets and fruit stalls in Tucepi (10-20 mins walk away) so it is possible to be here without a car. The shopping is better at the market in Makarska though.
NB. Worth taking DEET as there are mosquitos all along this coast.
