Very nice apartments in the Babin Kuk area about 10min drive from the old town. Nice sea/sunset views and the small infinity pool is a great plus. Good location within 10-15min walk - supermarket, beaches, Valamar club (if you want a large pool), Babin Kuk bars/restaurants, including Pantarul (no. 1 on Tripadvisor - highly recommended).

Taxi to old town is 80-90 HRK or 15HRK pp one way on the No. 6 bus which stops with 100m of apartments.

The guy on reception is very nice and helpful, will help you with any info or bookings you need. We arranged return airport transfers for 40 Euro each way. The service was excellent for the same cost as a public taxi, we were greeted at the airport and had executive air-con cars (Mercedes and BMW) both ways, I highly recommend this service.

We had apt. no 11, modern, clean and well maintained studio with own terrace and s/c facilities,not too much road noise although a little on the small side especially the showeroom but fine for a few days. We knew reception/check-in does not open until 2pm, this was clearly stated on the booking (through booking.com). We emailed to ask if we could have an early check-in and were advised it maybe possible but not guaranteed, when we arrived at 10am we found the cleaning lady easily and she took one passport and let us in, we checked in fully after 2pm without any hassle. I would advise just to email them in advance as they seem to try their best to accommodate you.

Also a plus we had good free Wifi signal in our studio and by the pool and reception area, surprisingly the speed was pretty good.

The owner lives on site and was there at 9am in the morning to take our keys and thank us for staying which was a nice touch. Otherwise if you checkout before reception opens there is a drop box for your keys. You do need to pay for your stay in advance and they take EUR or HRK.

Thanks Villa Antea, we would definitely return.

We stayed here for 4 nights and could not have wished for better accommodation.
The view from our room was wonderful across the suspension bridge, port with cruise ships and of course the blue, blue sea.
The owner and staff were very welcoming and informative, the room was clean and well presented and the pool on the roof great after a day around the old town.
Getting into the old town was simple with the no.6 bus being 100 metres down the road from the apartment, every 15 mins and equivalent to £1.50.
Ideal being away from the old town because local, nearby restaurants were much better value and widely used by the locals so a great recommendation.

My sister and I have just returned from a week stay at Villa Antea which we thoroughly enjoyed. The apartments have numerous positives, however there are also a few negatives.
Upon our arrival at around 11.30am, there was nobody to greet us. We were virtually dumped by our transfer and left to figure out what to do. Eventually a cleaner appeared and let us into our apartment. We were instantly disappointed when we were taken to an apartment on the basement floor. Although the apartment was very spacious, clean and well-equipped, we virtually had no view and looked into the owners tomato garden plus an oil tank. This would not have been as much of a problem if we had paid less than everybody else but we felt slightly peeved as we were paying the same as everyone else in the complex but for the worst view. We requested to move on 2 occasions but with no success. The saving grace of the disappointing view was the rooftop pool area. This is fantastic and is so relaxing. People often complain about the road but it really isn't a big deal and it also provides access to an excellent bus service, the no 6 which has a stop around 100m from the front door. A shop and bakery are also not far away, both which are very reasonably priced.
The pool area, however, is not suitable for young children/families. On our last day a large family arrived with 4 young children and the pool is simply too small to have children running around. It completely takes away from the relaxing atmosphere so for this reason I'd also advise going out with school holidays!
The best part of Villa Antea is by far Damir, the rep. Although his shift didn't start until 2pm so we weren't greeted by him on arrival, he made sure he properly welcomed us with Figs and homemade grappa,
and spent a lot of time explaining to us the best places to eat, drink and visit. Whenever we had any questions, regardless of how stupid or fundamental, Damir was always happy to help and never made us feel like a hassle. He is a real attribute to the apartment complex and is an absolute keeper! The owner is also lovely despite not speaking much english. He's a sweet old man and he and Damir make quite a funny team.

I have just spent 7 nights in there apartments. Initially having booked a twin studio on booking.com , we were given a studio with double bed. However this was changed very quickly. Studio was compact but contained everything you would want, safe (€2 per day) , microwave, toaster, lots of self, cutlery and glasses. I particularly liked the fact that they had a condiment set prefilled! Even washing liquid was provided. No excuses!! Infinity pool is very small and water was very cold but beautiful view over the bay to have your sundowners!!you had to pay in cash on arrival which is a bit of a pain and inconvenient. However kuna or euro were acceptable. Owner is grumpy and his English is poor but his right hand man Damir was fluent and unbelievably helpful. Cleaning lady had excellent English and was really lovely also. Tommys supermarket at the bottom of the hill stocks everything you might need. It's on the number 6 bus line which stops at the gate of the old city and has a great service. We were in apartment 9 and wifi signal was super. Highly recommend for a very quiet base outside the city!
You must visit the number 1 restaurant which is a short walk away Pantarul! Simply sublime! Amazing dining experience!!
