We stayed with Vladimir and Jelena earlier this summer. We are an American family living in Europe with 3 kids. The villa was very nice, great outdoor porch, overlooking the city and water. Plenty of room for family of 5 to stretch out and find space. Easy parking. Only stayed two nights but could have stayed more. Owners were incredibly... More

My two friends and I stayed here for 4 night and couldn't be more happy. We stayed in the ground floor villa with garden. On arrival the owners couldn't have been nicer. They were friendly and welcoming. Jelena does not speak any English but she spoke with so much enthusiasm as her husband translated. They gave us a map with... More

We stayed at Villa Jelena for two nights. The hosts greeted us with a fruit basket, local wine and warm smiles. The villa is tastefully furnished and fully equipped. The garden is lovely. It's at walking distance from the beach and town center. One of the best apartments I have stayed during my travels.

We arrived at 10 p.m. and were given a really warm welcome by Jelena and Vladamir who were the best hosts you could wish for. Our 2 bedroom villa was really impressive and the location great for us as we enjoy a walk to the old town and marina where there is lots to see and do. The Croatian people... More

We stayed here for only one short night and an early departure but I am sure a longer stay would be enjoyable. Very friendly hosts upon welcoming us. Very clean place inside and out with all the comforts of home. Ten minute walk down to a restaurant recommended by them and enjoyed by us.

Our family spent 6 days at Villa Jelena and had a great time. We stayed in the penthouse apartment which was well equipped, comfortable and had great views. However, the best aspect was undoubtedly the owners who could not have been more helpful or friendly. From the moment we booked they were very quick to respond to our e-mail queries.... More

When we arrived at the villa, it was like a reunion. The owners were so excited and so welcoming. We ended up having the ground floor two bedroom apartment. There was a courtyard out the back which was for our exclusive use, which we didn't expect. We enjoyed happy hour drinks and breakfast outside everyday. It was a little bit... More

the view from the penthouse was spectacular, the accommodation was very comfortable. There were 4 of us in a 3 bedroom apartment which meant there was plenty of space. Our only criticism is that there was not enough hot water for 4 of us to shower each morning. When we first arrived we thought we were a bit out of... More
