“Lovely apartment, helpful hosts, great value for money.”
Reviewed 29 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We stayed in one of the first floor apartments for a week at the end of September. As it was a late booking just out of season and only two of us, Biserka gave us a reduced rate which was amazing value. She was incredibly helpful via email ahead of our trip, asking all our questions very promptly. She and her family were also very helpful and friendly during our stay, advising us on local walks etc.

The apartments are all well-kept and clean. Ours had a small living room but the luxury of two terraces- one in the sun and one large covered one (good if very hot or if it rains), both with amazing sea-views. The kitchen was basic but had a hob and enough utensils etc- breakfast on the terrace each morning was great. Bathroom was fine, decent shower but no bath. Bedrooms were a decent size with large beds and enough storage space. Air-con and wireless also both reliable.

The location of the apartment was perfect for us as it was just far enough out of town to avoid the late-night noise but only about a ten minute walk in, either via nice seafront or a raised path giving great views of the town. It was also close to the dive centre and a couple of little bays where you can hire sunbeds.

We actually stayed here whilst our friends stayed at the nearby Amfora hotel and whilst theirs might have been more luxurious, we were able to pay to use their pool and for a third of the price that they paid for their room, we had our own space and a sea-view terrace so were very happy with our choice.

In terms of things to do in Hvar and around, we enjoyed:

1) Walking up to the fort and watching the sunset.
2) Hula Hula bar also nice for sunset- v near apartment and known as a party bar but fairly chilled vibe.
3) Boat to Palmizana beach for the day- beautiful but not that many sunbeds so we were grateful it was not peak-season.
4) Diving at Dive Viking- friendly and organised team, reasonable prices. Visibility was excellent and saw a few things eg starfish, octopus, moray eels, but nothing spectacular- Croatia not famous for its diving.
5) Walk along the coast East to Milna- about 8k walk but beautiful and via two or three idyllic and secluded bays you could stop at. Milna is also a small bay with 3 restaurants- lovely setting for lunch. Shorter walk back inland about 4k.
5) Dubovika beach- further along from Milna so need a car/bus/taxi but beautiful and secluded. No sunbeds to be seen so take something soft as all beaches are pebbled. Great snorkelling.
6) Hire a car for a day and drive around the island- they have some great little VW Beetles of different colours, about £50 so not cheap but worth it- Vrboska and Jelsa are worth a visit for nice lunches by estuary/sea.
7) 40 minute walk from Hvar town up to the observatory for amazing views over the town, coast and Pakleni islands.
8) Dalmatino restaurant- chose it as it was no. 1 on trip advisor and you can see why- the reviews are accurate. A great experience at a reasonable price (about £40/head for three courses, lots of wine, water, bread and tip). You need to book or be prepared to wait a long time for a table.
9) Evening drink on the terrace of the Adriana hotel, overlooking the old town bay.

“Very nice stay in apartment on 1st floor”
Reviewed 15 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We really enjoyed our stay in the apartment. Biserka, the landlord, was very agreeable and helpful. We paid a deposit via a bank transfer to secure our booking and the rest at the end of our stay. When we arrived, biserka sent us a cab to pick us up at the port. It was always very easy to contact her by e-mail or phone.

We had the flat on the 1st floor, which is better because you have a roof for the terrace, meaning you get to have some shadows. The apartment was very clean, the bed mattresses were good. And we even get to turn the living room sofa into an extra bed, thus having three rooms. Also, you have a good wifi access in the flat.

Walking, you need 20 minutes to get to the center of the city, which can be a bit long, but preserve you from the noisy night life in the center. You have a supermaket situated just opposite the flat, which is very useful. Moreover, you can get to the beach and a nice beach club in 10 minutes.

“Amazing location and hospitality”
Reviewed 3 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Me and another 2 friends stayed there for 1 week, the apartment location is very good, 5-10 mins walking distance to main destinations in the island.
Biserka the owner and Bobo her son were very helpful, they sent us a taxi to pick us up from cameraman and they offered us tips on most of stuff we inquired about.

Clean and with a big terrace was also one of the main advantages and with a supermarket right infront of the house.

“Warm welcome, comfortable stay and beautiful view!”
Reviewed 16 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

My husband and I along with extended family really enjoyed our stay at apartment Biba. The apartment is in a great location - about a 10 minute walk into the town of Hvar and the same distance to the ocean for swimming. The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed for our stay. The balcony faces the ocean with beautiful views and a big table to eat around. It was our living room outside where we watched the sunset every evening. Biba and her family were very welcoming, kind and generous, as well as helpful with info on where to go and what to see. She even gave us delicious lemon cake that she had baked! Overall the stay, location and host was perfect! Thank you Biba.

“Very welcoming and friendly”
Reviewed 3 January 2013 for a stay in July 2012

We stayed here for two weeks with three small children. I guess there is one main thing that summs up our experience, is that is that we felt so welcomed and attended to, that this is the main memory of our Hvar vacation. Biba and her family are truly warm and proffesional hosts, and they go went of their way to make everything nice for us and our children.
