House in Hvar Town, Dalmatian Coast, Croatia - A Central, Yet Peaceful Location Only 3 Mins Walk To All That Hvar Town Has To Offer
About Property Manager
I moved to Croatia for a change of pace after living in London. Over the last few years we have renovated properties on the island of Hvar and in the Old Town of Split and we enjoy renting these out to guests from all over the world. Croatia is becoming an increasingly population destination and I think Hvar offers a great mix of relaxation and vibe depending on what you are looking for. Split is an amazing city to explore "the Barcelona of the Balkans" Hvar is the ideal location to relax, a memory of what the Mediterranean was like 30+ years ago. If you are not tied to school holidays then April, May, September and even October are beautiful months to visit the country, you get much more for your money and there are no crowds. Whatever you end up doing - Enjoy your Croatia !
Property Manager purchased this House in 2006
Why Property Manager chose Hvar Town
A 400 year old stone ruin in the centre of Hvar Town facing the old Fort so I sort of figured that I couldn't go too far wrong. The house is great, very cool in the summer and you can park (for a short while) within a few meters of the front door which is rare for Hvar Town, but priceless when renovating!
What makes this House unique
Location Location Location! 60cm thick Stone Walls so its cool and quiet - just what you want when on Holiday. The house has solid wooden shutters - perfect to block out the heat and light and grab a sneaky siesta. I love this house, at 400+ years old, it really feels like owning a piece of Croatian History!

Honeymoon stop in Hvar
We had a wonderful stay at Jadranka’s apartment in Hvar! She met us at the ferry and walked us to the home, showing us good restaurants and sightings on the way! This was our favorite part of our Croatia trip! The city is so clean and the food is so amazing! We recommend you take her up on the scooter rental recommendation right around the corner! We had a wonderful day riding throughout the island! Jadranka also recommended the Blue Cave tour, it was fabulous and we met a bunch of new friends! This rental is in the most perfect location and Jadranka went above and beyond for us! We would absolutely stay again!
Great spot in the middle of town. Away from all of the noise by harbour. Amazing view of fortress from bedroom window and within short walk of everything. Price seemed reasonable. There was just two of us but would be great for a family
Our stay in a perfect house in Hvar Town
We had never used Homeaway before so was unsure of the process.
We booked the house Oct 2018 for a stay in Aug 2019, I advise booking early as Hvar gets booked up quickly. The booking process was easy. Prior to booking I contacted the owners Jadranka & Mark with question regarding the property and they were very helpful with their answers. I paid half upfront and the balance a few weeks before the holiday.
Jandranka & Mark were always available to help with any queries regarding Hvar Island and the house. They even assisted with the Catarmaran timings and how to book this from Split. They also provided recommended websites to assist with Beaches and Restaurants.
Jadranka met us from the Catamaran and took us to the property, this took no more than 7-8 mins to walk.
The house is situated just past the main square and is very close to all of the shops/restaurants/harbour/beaches/taxi and bus stops. It is located in a lovely part of the town and is quiet in the evenings when needing a good sleep.
Once inside Jadranka ran through all of the areas of the house and showed us how to use everything, she was very attentive and welcoming and answered all of our many questions regarding the attractions and area. We were all very happy, and my two teenage sons loved the house and their room. My wife was also very happy indeed
The house was immaculate and finished to a high standard, it was very comfortable for the 4 of us and had everything that you would need. It was also very cool whilst being very warm outside. As a family we have very high expectations and standards for our accommodation on holiday and this ticked all of our boxes.
We really enjoyed our stay in the house and ventured all over the island and the Palenki Islands too. It is such a beautiful area of the world. We have never seen such pure clean beaches and sea in Europe as what we experienced in Hvar
We would definitely go back again to this house, and a big thank you to Jadranka and Mark.
Glen & family
Thanks very much for your review! We are glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. There is so much to explore on Hvar so please consider us again next year and we will do our best to make your holiday as relaxing and as enjoyable as possible.

Payments outside the site that could be disturbing in a first row, but Confident company that handle severals rentals.
We did have a great time in Hvar as always, and this rental was very good.
Great location and fabulous house
You couldn't get a better location and the house itself was ideal for 2 adults and 2 teenagers. The owner was extremely helpful and the midweek clean was welcomed! Can't recommend highly enough.
Allison and her family were great guests and they took such a good care of our house. We are happy they stayed with us and we hope they will visit us again.

Central renovated small house
Very neat and clean, position very close to central square. Lovely view from bedroom windows onto old fort and walls. Good for bus station, market, shops. Bells wake you every morning and get you on the go , street noise at night can be a problem if you're not out yourself! We did a lot of travelling around the island from here which was lovely and found much more peaceful little places to spend the days. Hvar is very busy and full of visitors. It's a great centre and well worth looking around the lovely island or taking trips to other islands.
Special interest holidays:
We work with an art gallery in Dol and often have clients who stay with us and visit / work with the gallery. Cycle holidays / Rock Climbing Trips / Sailing are all very popular on Hvar. We are more than happy to fit in and help with any special interest holiday you would like to organise!
The sea is about 200m from the house, with boat rides available to the nearby unpopulated Pakleni Islands, most notably Palmizana on Sveti Klement Island.
Boat trips start at 35 kuna (4 GBP / 5 EUR per person).
The nearest airport to the island is Split. From the the airport a bus meets all flights and stops at the ferry port. Ferry Boats or a catamaran leave 8 + times a day in summer, 5 times a day all year round and take 2 or 1 hour(s) respectively and dock at Stari Grad or Hvar Town iteself. Boats also serve the island from Italy, Rijeka or Dubrovnik.
All foods and essentials are available 7 days a week within a 2 minute walk, including a banks, ATM, Post Office, pharmacy, doctor, dentist etc... In the summer there are many festivals and concerts in Hvar Town on the main square or take an evening walk along the promenade and watch the super yachts come in !
At Hvar and Split we highly recommend the Restaurant Me & Mrs Jones in Jelsa, it is worth the trip. In Hvar Town we often go out to the Pakleni Islands to eat and thoroughly enjoy ourselves the Zori Restaurant at Palmizana or in Hvar Town itself we often end up at Paradise Garten, or for the most authentic Croatian fish dishes go to Restaurant Junior in the Old Town - Enjoy !
