A 3 bedroom 3 bathroom villa (sleeps 10 in total) on island Vis. The view is really pièce de résistance of the house. Our villa features a hot tub, multiple living rooms, large grill area, stone oven and a beautiful garden (with fresh lemons).
The island of Vis is located in the central south part of the Adriatic. Due to its location it enjoys one the best climates of all Adriatic islands. It has been closed for tourists during Yugoslavia due to its excellent strategic position, which means its natural beauty is preserved for today's visitors.
Our vacation house is located in the city of Vis. Its position gives it a commanding view of the whole port and surrounding islands. The view is really pièce de résistance of the house.
Other highlight is the award-winning arhitecture, designed by a celebrated local architect.
Over the summer months, the port is frequented by world-class celebrities who visit with extraordinary yachts. They are best appreciated from the second-floor balcony.
Enjoy the outdoor grilling or practice making pizzas in a traditional stone oven. Taste local wines from the on-site wine-cellar.
Sleeps 6 on 3 double-beds and 4 extra on 2 pull out couches. Three bathrooms (one of each floor, plus outside shower).
Our villa is kids-friendly, in general. The lower part of the garden is not fenced in, but has a low wall (about 30-40 cm high, 1-1,3 feet high) followed by a 2-3 meter drop to the neighbor's garden (6-6,5 feet). Please do not leave your kids unattended in this part of the garden (plenty of other areas to play around in).
Private parking for 3 cars. If you are not coming by car, consider renting a car in local rent-a-cars (do not rent in Split: ferry charges 80+ EUR one-way to Vis for cars): all the beautiful beaches are best reached by car and a short walk (or by bicycle, scooter).
No additional fees, we will pay local tourist tax, but you could be asked to give your documents for the paperwork, or come with us to the office... It's a hustle but mandated by the government.
Please read the house manual for more info. Check out my (short) guide book.

Interaktion mit Gästen
I usually respond to all e-mail questions ASAP and send a couple of e-mails with basic information.
We are personally present in one of our summer houses during summer months - if we are not on Vis, this is because we are spending time on Cres and vice-versa. In any case, we always have trusted friends on Vis who can give even better local advice, since they live on Vis (we are from Zagreb).
Here are a few general pointers around the house:
Since we installed the hot tub, there will be some very reasonable set of rules to use it. These are all straight from the user manual:
Please close the top of the hot tub when you are not using it (the insides are sensitive to the sun, leaves could fall in, etc).
Please let kids use the hot tub only under parental supervision.
Please do not drink or eat while in the hot tub.
The water in the hot tub is changed before new guests arrive. If you would like to fill it yourself to make sure the water is fresh, please let me know at least 48 hours in advance. Please do not empty the tub when you leave, since we would need to check if it is fully functional.
Please let me know if you would like to use chloride and other products in the hot tub - the installer suggests fresh water can stay up to maximum of 7 days before the need to change it. If you prefer to use chemicals to make sure its clean, let me know, and we will provide the products.
The house has a small "vine-cellar"/storage area. Please feel free to use the foosball (table-football), which can be found inside, but make sure you keep it covered in case of rain.
This is also where you will find the neccessary accessories for the grill. Please return all the accessories where you found them, to make it easier for others to check if these are present when you leave.
If there are bottles of wine in the storage, feel free to try some.
Please use the grill only if you have experience with grilling. There are two different grilling grids - one for fish, one for meat - located in storage. Also, there are two different "peka"
We are a family from Croatia and we rent our summer house. SInce we live in Zagreb, we have friends who will be there to welcome you and help in any way, if we are not there personally.
We will try to answer all questions as soon as possible.
Hope you have a fun time and enjoy the beautiful Adriatic coast!
