Vacation rentals in Croatia – Our house for you(r) vacation
If you are looking for vacation rentals in Croatia especially if you are interested in the island of Hvar then please read about our house in Vela Stiniva Bay. First of all, get acquainted with our offer, find out about us and our small bay. It is certainly worth spending a few minutes exploring here.
How to come to Vela Stiniva Bay
If you come by car, you will need to use the ferry and you have two options: or you will drive to Drvenik and after half an hour drive by ferry, sail to Sućuraj or board a ferry in Split and after 2 hours drive by ferry, sail in Stari Grad.
Sućuraj is the easternmost point of the island of Hvar, a small fishing village with about 300 inhabitants. Going further from Sućuraj, take the state road which is quite narrow to Jelsa. About 30 kilometers from Sućuraj you will reach Zastražišće.
If you are traveling from Split you will come to the ferry port in Stari Grad. The oldest town in Croatia. Beside the ferry port, there is a large shopping center where you can supply food and other necessities. From Stari Grad, you will head east towards Jelsa and further towards Sućuraj. After 30 kilometers (again) you will reach Zastražišće.
At 311 meters above sea level lies Zastražišće, a small village on the state road where you will head towards Vela Stiniva bay. Today, there are about 200 people living in the village, while over 600 people lived here in the thirties of the last century.
As a permanent settlement, Zastražišće is mentioned already in the 15th century when the region was ruled by the Venetian Republic. Today in the village there is a primary school with 5 students sitting in one classroom regardless of their age.
Vineyards, olive trees, and lavender fields surround the village. The place is known for its high-quality olive oil and good quality wine.
And here you are
In the village, you will turn to the right from the state road to the local asphalt road. Driving downhill about 3 kilometers you will come to the bay. The first house on the left side is your destination.
Our house is not very large, but it is warm and cozy. It consists of two floors: ground floor and first floor, connected by concrete stairs. The floor area is about 70 square meters, but on the first floor, there is a large terrace on one side and a big balcony on the other. The first floor is provided for our dear guests, so they have some 100 square meters available for accommodation.
In front of the house is planted vineyards which creates pleasant shade, and all around the house is greenery or flowers. On the east side of the house is the garden that my wife and her mother govern. And there are grapevines, mandarins, lemons and peaches, tomatoes, zucchini, lettuce, salads and more.
And another beautiful scene in the yard, a stone table with stone chairs. Not so long ago people really liked to sit at that table, but unfortunately, those times had gone by.
When you get to the floor and enter the house, you will find yourself in a corridor. From there you can enter one of the three rooms, one of the two bathrooms or the kitchen. Rooms are spacious and each has a large double bed. In two rooms there are a double bed and a comfortable single bed.
Apartments in Croatia are mostly for 2 – 4 people for which there is the highest demand. The ideal number of guests in our house is 6, but if needed, the number of guests can be up to 8. Unfortunately, this will also increase the price. Of course, it can accommodate even fewer guests if it suits them.
In the rooms, besides a nice big bed, there are cupboards for storing and hanging clothes, and a small desk with a chair. In the room, you will also find small luggage storage.
The kitchen is fully equipped so you can store the food and prepare a dish. You can use a microwave, oven, glass-ceramic plate and all necessary utensils: cutlery, pans, plates and the like.
On the floor are two bathrooms with toilets. They are equipped with shower cabins and everything is new, purchased in 2018. In one of the bathroom, there is also a washing machine.
There is a powerful air conditioning in the corridor to cool the entire space. Free WI-FI is also available so you can stay connected with the world.
On the west side of the house, there is a parking lot for more cars and parking is free.
