I stayed in apartment Masha for a week as part of a group of four girls aged 20-21 travelling from England to Hvar to celebrate university graduations. We absolutely loved our stay and couldn't fault a single thing with Olga's beautiful apartment. I would recommend the apartment to anyone, it would be fantastic for families but was also perfect for us who were backpacking.
Apartment: The apartment was spacious, spotlessly clean and yet still felt homely. The rooms are well equipped with extras including a hairdryer, travel adapters and toastie maker so we didn't need a thing. Bathroom was also modern and renovated with a good shower and plenty of towels provided. Wi-fi fast and always available.
Location: 5 minutes from the main square. On the map we thought it looked much further away but it's actually a staircase above the main square which means it's super-close to everything whilst somehow managing to stay quiet in the evenings when the town livens up. Supermarket and fruit/veg market was less than 10 minutes away, boats to the islands the same.
Hvar: Gorgeous. Hvar town is becoming a popular destination for young travelers and has a busy bar and club scene but this closes at 2am and everyone heads to Carpe Diem, Pink Champagne or Temple so the centre still feels like stepping back in time and isn't overwhelmed with nightlife venues (feels a little like the old town in Dubrovnik but much less touristy). I highly recommend heading to the islands, Mlini beach was gorgeous. The taxi boats cost about 40 kuna return (about £4) and the beaches are very unspoilt. We also walked up to the fortress above the town which is an amazing sunset spot. Food wise, GO TO DALMATINO RESTAURANT! It's mainly steak and fish but was one of the best steaks I've ever eaten and the octopus starter was delicious, staff all very friendly. We visited a few more in town which were all fine but this one really stood out.
Overall: I tried to write a balanced review but the only thing I could fault about the whole trip is that I couldn't stay longer! Olga and her family made us feel like we were there own family guests, offering us suggestions on places to eat and visit. They invited us into their home when we arrived and made us feel completely welcome the entire time. I hope to return to Hvar in future and would definitely be returning to apartment Masha.
