Modern, clean & well equipped apartment with gorgeous pool in a wonderful location!
This was a modern and spacious ground floor apartment, with all the equipment and comfort we needed for a relaxing and enjoyable family holiday. It is situated just above the pretty harbour village of Milna, which is a beautiful spot on the island of Brac. It is possible to walk into the centre of Milna from the apartment, but we chose to do this only once due to the heat and having 2 young children, as the walk back up to the apartment is fairly steep. We found the villa very easily as it is well signposted from the main road.
All the rooms were clean and spacious with a lovely open plan living/dining room and kitchen area, and a gorgeous bathroom with hot powerful shower. There were a couple of things which let it down a little, such as the tap on the kitchen sink being loose, one of the light fittings missing and a crack on the hob, however these were things we didn't notice after a day or so as it quickly became apparent we had everything we needed there. One thing that would have been very helpful when we first arrived was an information pack about the apartment and surrounding area, together with leaflets about local catamarans, ferries etc plus a welcome pack of food/drink etc would have been hugely appreciated, as we arrived late with two young children having had a nightmarish journey on the ferry across from Makarska and then a drive across the island. It was late when we arrived, we had been travelling all day and then my husband had to figure out where the closest shop was to pick up a few basic supplies - it would have been nice to have the option to purchase an additional welcome pack to take the pressure off at that point.
The swimming pool was perfectly clean and lovely to swim in, our 2 children loved it! We had it to ourselves most of the time, it was very quiet at the villa with most guests keeping themselves to themselves.
The things that would have made this five stars for me would have been the information pack and welcome pack, plus I didn't realise at the time of booking that this property does not accept payment through Home Away - you have to organise payment directly with the property via BACS or Paypal, which caused extra admin issues that I could have done without, plus it wasn't always easy to communicate with the owner/agency in advance as replies to emails weren't very quick. That said, the contact we had when we arrived was very helpful. All in all, I would definitely recommend this apartment!
Fell in love with Milna
Having not been to Croatia before, I didn't know what to expect. Thought the best way to explore would be hire our own apartment and car and see how the locals live.
Communication with the owners has been fantastic, they provided me with the information I needed very quickly along with lots of information about the local area. This made getting to the apartment quick and easy.
The apartment itself was spotless and modern, exactly what we were looking for. Had all the modcons we needed in order to the make the most of our stay and was situated in a quiet location with stunnign views.
The village and the beach were only a 10 min walk away. The walk down to the village was relatively easy but coming back was a bit of a trek with it all being uphill. We visited many parts of Brac, Hvar and Split during our stay and were always glad to come back to the peace and quiet of our stunning apartment.
Thank you Croatia for a fantastic holiday, we will be back again soon!
Sehr nette Vermieter. Ideal gelegen in Milna.
Die Vermieter sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Die Wohnung ist ausreichend gross für eine vierköpfige Familie. Sie liegt ebenerdig und somit direkt am Pool. Ein Traum für Kinder. Es könnte mehr und bessere Ausstattung in der Küche und mehr Infos zur Umgebung Strände Restaurants usw. geben in der Wohnung. Wir kommen wieder!

Milna is a beautiful old Mediterranean village located on the west side of Brac island. While many locations in Croatia have lost their original beauty due to mass tourism and over development, the same cannot be said for Milna. Most of the buildings in the area are finished with the famous white Brac stone and retain many of their original features. Milna is truely the Mediterranean as it once was.
Beautiful crystal clear waters against a backdrop of lush forests and winding valleys, it is very easy to see why people fall in love with Milna. While the town has retained its Mediterranean feel, it is still home to one of the largest marinas in the area which is frequented by boats and yachts all summer long.
A good selection of restuarants, cafes and beaches are sure to make your stay in Milna one to remember. Once you have explored all that Milna has to offer why not take the catamaran to Split for a daytrip or rent a car and explore the beautiful island of Brac.
