Holiday Rental House
I've being coming to Bol since 1996 due to windsurfing and kiteboarding. In the summer of 2011 I bought an old, stone house located in the centre of Bol on the Island of Brac. I bought the house along with all its pertaining stuff from a family which moved to Italy almost 100 years ago. No one lived in the house for precisely 40 years. The house dates from the second half of the 18th century. The house achieved its moments of brilliance at the turn of the 20th century when its owner was a merchant of Bol, Pietro Karničić Misir, after whom the house was named. Its overall condition was rather deteriorated when I bought it, nevertheless there was original carpentry, wooden beams, stone floors and dangerous stairs. It took three years to refurbish the house completely, to battle the woodworm ...I've being coming to Bol since 1996 due to windsurfing and kiteboarding. In the summer of 2011 I bought an old, stone house located in the centre of Bol on the Island of Brac. I bought the house along with all its pertaining stuff from a family which moved to Italy almost 100 years ago. No one lived in the house for precisely 40 years. The house dates from the second half of the 18th century. The house achieved its moments of brilliance at the turn of the 20th century when its owner was a merchant of Bol, Pietro Karničić Misir, after whom the house was named. Its overall condition was rather deteriorated when I bought it, nevertheless there was original carpentry, wooden beams, stone floors and dangerous stairs. It took three years to refurbish the house completely, to battle the woodworm and to fix all new installations. I tried to save all that was possible including furniture, old decorations and different objects that belonged to the house, with a view of preserving the charm of a real, authentic, antique, traditional, Dalmatian stone house. Inside the house its walls are rough, angles crooked, floors uneven, stairs and the structures between floors are wooden. All these imperfections in my opinion make my house perfect. House Misir is equipped with one double bedroom and two single bedrooms with a bathroom on the second floor. On the first floor there are two large bedrooms with double beds with possible two extra single beds which could easily be fitted into the larger of those two bedrooms. Next to the bedrooms a comfortable bathroom is found. Lounge is located on the ground floor along with the dining room and the kitchen with an exit to the courtyard and a separate room with a fire place suitable for grill or dome cooking, across the courtyard. Courtyard leads onto the garden with a designated parking space available for one vehicle. House Misir is positioned on a little square in the vicinity of a popular coffee shop with a visitors' terrace overshadowed by an old mulberry tree. However, the thick stone walls of the house provide for an intimate and private atmosphere. An open summer cinema theatre, a primary and a high school are located on the same square. The nearest beach is only 40 m away. Bakery, butchery, grocery shop, waterfront, wine shop, bank, culture centre, restaurants, pharmacy, church and anything else you might need during your stay can be found in the vicinity of the House Misir.

Excellent place to stay for holiday. We traveled as family (2+2) with our best friends (2+2). House is big enough to accommodate such big group of people. No worries. There are enough sleep place for all guests. House is old and with character. Located just...More
