In central position in old town of Zadar. Linen and house towels provided. Convenient for visiting beaches in town and best ones on the islands and plenty of choices for restaurants and attractions in the evening in the town.

Accommodation is on the 4th floor, so please check is it suitable for you. If I can and that is most of the time I help with the luggage. It is not a problem as guests are very active, some arrive after traveling for many months, countries and continents. If it is not suitable due to handicap, age or any other reason please be aware of this or ask about suitability.
Beaches all around and choice or restaurants, fast food places, market, supermarket for every budget. Excellent transport links. Staying in the centre of the town actually saves you money and time as you don't need to pay for public transport or waste time walking from the edge of the town.

House towels are provided as well. Please make sure not to destroy or damage bed linen or the towels. Meaning: don't eat in the bed and leave greasy stains, don't wipe your shoes with a white towels and things like that. Sounds silly but people do it.

Small fridge for your personal use to keep fresh fruits, milk etc. Kettle- water heater with welcome pack of coffee and tea and sugar so you can start your day.
We are proud to offer personal service for people who would like that. It is like having your own guide, driver, chef and companion if you like that sort of thing. You would like to experience some Croatian hospitality and have someone helpful, knowledgeable, reliable and flexible who can help. But on the other hand you just want an accommodation we are happy to leave you to explore at your own pace and give you a good advice should you need one. Bare in mind that we know the area better than any guide book, that we visited interesting places, that we probably visited places in the current year and that we are completely independent of any establishment or attraction.
We treat you as a important family guest not as a passing tourist. We know how important is a good night sleep and we have good quality bespoke oak beds with comfortable mattresses, not cheap tourist things or, god forbid, backbreaking sofa beds or beds made from building material (yes, those one exist as well).
You are important to us and we are here to offer as much as we can. Zadar and Croatia will do their part as well so you can enjoy your holiday.
Room, toilet, great location, memorable holidays. Extra payment for transfers and air-conditioning use can be agreed. I usually agree to meet guests just near the accommodation as due to Mediterranean nature of town and buildings street numbers are not clear to somebody who just arrived to the town.
We interact as much or as little as required. If you need a friend for a couple of days we can be that, if you need accommodation only we are fine with that. It is business and a pleasure as well. Good time for guests means good time for us.
Please ask for check in time if it is important for you as that can be adjusted. We can receive guests earlier or let them stay longer, it really depends from bookings or other engagement. Late night booking is no problem for us.
You stay in Zadar and you want to go to places you know they are beautiful and you heard about them, read and seen the pictures. You don't want to go with a crowd of teenagers or loud group of tourists. You are right, you would not see that much and you will spend even more money. So, we can take you there, stop where they don't and show you what they don't.
This is what we can offer: Stay in Zadar and see more of Croatia in relaxed, comfortable and informed way. One day for maximum of 4 people, car, petrol and driver and guide included; attractions tickets and food not included. We are happy to take 2 people or even 1 if they want to go separately (subject to previous agreement). Payment on the day of the excursion, further details and prices available on request. Those are just recommended itineraries based on our experiences what people like and what is possible to see in a day but we can change it according to your preferences. More details about those places easily available from official web sites and town's internet pages.
1. Plitvice waterfalls (on UNESCO's list of natural wonders) national park and inland Croatia, see and feel the lakes, take a boat ride under the waterfalls explore the park and taste local food specialties. Scenic route and a couple of interesting stops on the way there and back. You spend 6 hours (national park's recommended route but it is your decision, you can adjust it if you like) on the lakes and it is worth every minute.
2. Krka Waterfalls National Park, swim in the lakes, walk around and visit monasteries (all day excursion, transfers between various beautiful parts of the park included)
3. Paklenica, Velebit mountains National Park, mountain trails, caves or rock climbing
4. Pag, beautiful island with possibility of a famous Pag cheese factory tour, sightseeing and swimming in the clear blue sea
5. Split, Primosten, Trogir - UNESCO protected town museums and the coastline (with us or local, efficient and comfortable intercity bus service)
6. Medjugorje, shrine of apparitions of Virgin Mary
The difference between a big group excursion and our personal touch is:
The big group will not take time to show you a details. They will take you around quickly as they want to go home. We enjoy our tours so shell you.
PLEASE NOTE: Prices are calculated by Airbnb automatically. Air-conditioning and airport transfers is not included in the price unless especially agreed in advance and that is very easy. On some things we can agree once you are here. Air-conditioning depend from the weather and the preferences. You can check prices for the hostel which is adjoining building. We are cheaper, better, more interesting, have time for you or not if that is your choice and you can sleep here without party people keeping you awake all night. That doesn't stop you going out to have fun but when you are in bed it is yours to do as you please and not to listen noise.
We are genuinely private renters and we use money we get for our life and not for profit as some people who bought 15 properties for rent. Croatia is European country and comparable to countries around in prices for accommodation and in supermarkets and taxi. Spending money in the town is cheaper and you can have fun, drink and eat outside for much less than in Italy, Germany, France, Spain etc. Please enquire. We will be happy to answer any questions but do your own research. Nobody can give you something which costs €10 for €8 if he is real and genuine unless they are a charity and there are no tourism charities in here.
There is a small fridge for your use in the room and kettle-water heather with welcome pack of tea, coffee and sugar so you can start your day with a hot drink and plan your exciting day ahead.
Croatia is a good value destination so guests prefer to have something to eat in the morning then spend all day exploring with some fruits, drinks and in the evening there is a plenty of choice reasonable value restaurants. It is hot and cooking a complicated meal is very difficult even for us locals. To pay for a kitchen you don't' use mean less money for your holiday.
We expect guests to enjoy their holiday and behave nice as they usually do. We are more than nice as well.
We provide nice clean bed linen and two house towels for each person which are changed if you stay longer than a week. That is normal and usual and better than in the hostel for the same or more money and where you share the room with 4 guests. If you need beach towels please bring it with you and if you need more house towels as you might need one for each arm, leg , head etc please bring that with you as well.
We provide mainly herbal tea and coffee welcome pack with water heater but that is only for the start. It is difficult to cover all tastes and varieties (sugar, no sugar, milk, Earl Grey ... and so on and on) so you are welcome to go to the well stocked supermarket and buy what you like. They have various packets of coffee and English or herbal teas and of course whatever is left you can take with you to your next destinations.
There are also some books etc for you to use when you are here but not to be taken away as we expect more guests.
All guests are different and as much as we try to help we receive guests from all continents and we cannot cover all habits and variants. Thank you for understanding.
We have nice reviews but as we don't take people for one night we don't have 125842 reviews. Guests for one night stay too short to leave honest reviews but system works in the way that reviews like that are possible. That is why some listing have enormous number of reviews. Some even don't change bed linen for one night stay. Not my type of holiday and I wouldn't do it to any guest.
All our reviews are genuine and that is easy to check by clicking on the guests photos and profile.
Accommodation is not suitable for guests who would like to party, bring other people and do things like that.
Unfortunately on holidays even in safe Croatia, sometimes due to lack of common sense or just bad luck bad things can happen. We are family renters and like couples or single guests to feel safe as we do and we take all possible precautions to ensure that guests enjoy the holiday. We would even recommend high quality sun lotion as we don't like guests suffering sunburn.
Sometimes guests even choose us as they can see from the reviews that we are safe and take care that the guests are safe. Who needs problems after all? Neither us or guests or parents and relatives of the guests visiting us. We would rather point to the potential problems 3 times than deal with the bad consequences at all. But don't worry we are polite and as always personal safety is in the hands of each person.
So, if you like to party I am sure that there will be something suitable for that purpose and we can all live happily ever after.
So far we did not have any problems but it is better to clarify things in advance.
If you have any questions or doubts please contact us and we will be happy to answer your questions.
