This place is a true gem. From the start, our host, Silvio, was extremely prompt in his communications. He did his best to help us in planning our trip and to make us feel welcome even before we stepped foot in Croatia. The house itself is very clean and well presented, with a whole host of facilities that I really wish we had had the time to enjoy more fully. It includes a pool, a trampoline, ball games, even a sauna. However, it was the thoughtfulness and hospitality extended by the family that really distinguishes it. We were welcomed with drinks and yummy homemade snacks and really all the concierge services (thanks to Joseph) that you would only have expected from a 5 star hotel. In the words of my seven year old son, "This place was wonderful... If you can get the time to go to Croatia , and you go to Split then you must check this house out. This place has everything. You can eat stuff drink wine and juice plus you can't forget the salami. This is like the best house ever!!!!!!"
We visited Villa Maria or a work offsite and couldn't be more impressed with the facilities and the hospitality!
There was plenty of room for the 7 of us to have our own bedrooms across the three apartments, and plenty of recreational areas as well.
The facilities were all of the highest standard and our hosts went above and beyond to help us!
Location wise, the views were beautiful and we were only a short drive away from Split, it was nice not to be in the centre of it. We are all hoping to bring our families back to Villa Maria!
Seven couples stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of our 9 day Croatian trip. The Villa was wonderful - very spacious, clean, and perfect setting. The host family went above and beyond for us. We had them cater a Croatian dinner one night and provide breakfast each day. Delicious. We also had them arrange a tour to KRKA Falls and transportation to/from Split (about a 20 minute drive into Split) during our stay.
The host family sincerely wanted us to have a great time and tried to anticipate everything. If you have an opportunity to book this Villa, I highly recommend you do so.
We came for a Long Weekend for a Hen Do, it was the perfect place to stay, not far from the airport, town or restaurants and beach bars.
We were picked up from the airport by Silvio and Joseph who were already there waiting for us. On the journey, Silvio was telling us all about the area and showing us where places were that we might need over the weekend. When we arrived Silvio showed us round the grounds (which are beautiful and have amazing views over Split and out to sea) and each of the apartments in the villa, which all had their own balcony's with the same amazing view, they were very clean, spacious, modern, very well equipped and really lovely with plenty of room for everyone. The pool area was a great space to all chill and sunbathe around, they had more loungers in another part of the garden so there was plenty of places to relax.
The family were so welcoming, they had even lead out drinks, meats, cheeses and bread for when we arrived.
Later on they cooked us a 3 course dinner, which was amazing, including soft drinks and wine, Maria cooked us the best chocolate cake, which went down a treat.
They were able to help out over the whole weekend with transfers and anywhere we planned to go, nothing was ever too much hassle for them and them and they really made us feel welcome.
I would highly recommend Villa Maria to anyone and will definitely be going back again!
Thank you so much.
