“Wonderfully relaxing family beach holiday”
Reviewed 26 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

After a tiring year, my young family (two young children aged 3 and 4,plus wife and I) badly needed a proper break. We couldn't have wished for better. The appartment is perfectly situated very close to the tranquil beach and harbour of Gornje Celo (which is definitely a better place to stay than the island's other village, Dornje Celo). The appartment itself - one of two side by side - is nice, quiet and impeccably clean, with air con and with its own outside terrace space for eating and lazing on. But what makes it special is the owner's family, whose charm and hospitality really made our holiday. Little gifts of home-grown fruit and veg, freshly cooked fish, and great conversation over glasses of wine made us feel very welcome. We will certainly be returning.

In terms of things to do, we spent two weeks: building sand castles on the (tiny but big enough) sand beach; learning to swim, catch a ball and jump from their pier; hunting crabs and dead sear urchins in the crystal clear waters; having the odd day trip to Dubrovnik, exploring the island on foot or going around it by boat; getting to know some of the locals and other vacationers; and eating way too much ice cream / enjoying afternoon beers in the afternoon sun. Just perfect.

“The place is great but the welcome makes it unique”
Reviewed 3 November 2012 for a stay in November 2012

person found this review helpful

We were after a bit of sun in the October half term holiday (which was actually mostly in November) and Dubrovnik was one of the places we could fly to from our local airport for a reasonable price. I was attracted to this place because of the description, the previous ratings and finally convinced by exchanging e-mails with the owner. Although we realised that we were arriving after the season had finished, it sounded like the sort of place we would enjoy. Luckily, we were right about that, but it has turned out to be so much more with the sort of welcome that we have had from Luksa and his family, especially his mother Maria. Our two boys (5 and 9) are big fans of Maria! Because the restaurants had already closed, Maria cooked us dinner most nghts we were there, and she is a wonderful cook, and the price for the meals was more than reasonable given the quality and all the extras that were pressed upon us. We feel like we are leaving old friends now and look forward to returning next year at a better time for enjoying the wonderful-looking sea that surround the island (we tried but it was a bit chilly at this time of year).

“A week in Paradise”
Reviewed 17 October 2012 for a stay in July 2012
1
person found this review helpful

We visited Kolocep for a week in July 2012 and could not have wished for a better experience than living in Apartment Chiara owned by the charming and extremely hospitable Musladin family. Located on the quiet - and absolutely most beautiful - side of the island a couple of miles from the tourist area on the other side of the island, the apartment offers a breathtaking view of the bay between Kolocep and Dubrovnik. Only a very short distance (less than 100 meters) from the apartment there is a picturesque small bay with a sand beach, beautiful clear water and a small restaurant. We enjoyed very much taking various smaller or longer hikes (no cars are allowed, luckily!) around the island, whose nature is very fertile and colourful. It is also possible to sail around the island in rented kayaks - a trip we never had time to try, so we will definitely have to come back.
When relaxing at home, one can enjoy the sun or shade on two different terraces, a small one, and a very big one. When we stayed at the place, we had these to ourselves, but as there is one other 2-person apartment in the house (Apartment Maria), guests must be ready to share with other guests.

Staying in Villa Chiara means staying close to the Musladin family, consisting of more generations. Maria - the matron of the wonderful family - spoiled us completely with home-cooked surprise snacks, dinners, breakfast and fresh home-grown vegetables, and every time we left or came home, we were always greeted with warm smiles!

Villa Chiara is in our opinion the absolutely ideal setting for a quiet holiday in a stunning area. We can warmly recommend the place - and especially our wonderful host family - to anyone looking for relaxation, beautiful nature, contact with local Croatians, peace from tourism, but with easy access to the astonishing old city of Dubrovnik. Actuallly, we already have!!!

Thank you so much, Musladin family, for making our holiday one to remember - and repeat :)
