Casa Geranium is a great little apartment for a family of 4. The air con was wonderful, the location perfect, the beds comfy. There is no WiFi but the property management Co where you get the key, is just round the corner (literally) and there are tables outside it where you can use WiFi day or night. The views from the master bedroom are lovely and the owners very helpful. The apartment is right amongst the bars, shops and restaurants but there were no problems with noise. Yes there are lots of stairs but it's worth it.

“Live like a local at Casa Geranium”
Reviewed 12 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Right in the heart of the old town, Casa Geranium is a fantastic, traditional Rovijn home. It's full of charm, quirkiness and fabulous views. Sarah and the management team were brilliant at organising transfers and giving great tips and advice.

Rovijn is a stunning place to holiday. Loads to see and do. Stand out memories include visiting the old church and taking in the awesome views from the little cafe bar at the top. Late night drinks at the "cushion bar" opposite Casa Geranium. Oh and taking a boat tour of the islands and seeing dolphins.

Make sure you pack some sensible shoes (to deal with the steep cobbled streets) and take plenty of sunscreen for the fabulous weather. And don't forget to sample the lovely (and very cheap) Croatian wine!

“A wonderful apartment in a great location”
Reviewed 23 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

A lovely base to explore the delights of Rovinj and its nearby islands. Many thanks to the owners and the local management for all the help they gave us to make this a memorable and happy time.
Airport transfers were smooth and the apartment is peaceful, clean, comfortable and well equipped.
We particularly liked the local boat trips and the wide variety of artist and artisan shops. We were there in September and there was a wine festival and musical events with traditional and modern music. Apart from a couple of wet days, the weather was sunny without being too hot. The sea was beautifully warm for swimming.
Also worth noting you don't need to speak Croat to be understood – many of the people in shops, bars, cafe and restaurants spoke English as well as Italian, German and Russian!

The apartment was at the top of very steep stairs which was not a problem to us but not recommended for the elderly The apartment was well equipped The bedroom was large and had a very comfortable bed so slept well at night The air conditioning was welcome when returning from days out on the beach or sightseeing Rovinj is stunning with lots of interesting walks and beaches We went to Red Island twice and enjoyed the peace and quiet on relatively secluded beaches The water there is clean and beautiful for swimming There are plenty of bars and restaurants in Rovinj where they serve steaks, fish, pizza and pasta The ice creams are cheap and varied We enjoyed going to a bar called called Havana and a Mexican restaurant behind where there was live music We hope to return to Rovinj very soon

“Magnificent as long as you are able bodied”

Casa Geranium was a great place to stay in Rovinj. Positioned in the old town, it is the perfect place to immerse yourself into local living. Clean with a very comfortable bed (we only used one of the three beds), we were very happy with our choice. We were also happy to see a washing machine in the apartment which helped refresh our bags after a week of travel. The owners were very easy to deal with and their local agent couldn't have been of greater assistance during our stay. The stairs are steep, but if you are able bodied you will probably enjoy the exercise after eating out. Thank you to Andrew, Sarah & Samanta. Our favourite restaurants were Monte (expensive but seriously good) and Scuba.

“fabulous apartment in a beautiful resort”
Reviewed 11 June 2012 for a stay in June 2012

This apartment is in the heart of the old town. It is found at the top of a steep staircase so would definitely not be suitable for very elderly or infirm. Once there it is certainly worth the climb. Spotlessly clean and comfortable and surprisingly modern considering the age of the buildings.
Andrew and Sarah have thought of everything that may be needed on a self catering holiday, practically home from home! Would definitely recommend.
