I love to travel! And love to stay at places that feels like home. That is why I will do my best for you to feel the same way while staying at our apartments.
This apt was everything it promissed in the listing . The seaview was even better than great. It was clean and exactly as pictured/described. Nikolina's mom was really nice and helpfull person (we enjoyed the crepes she made for us :-)). Selce is nice small town with several beaches perfect for famillies with children as well as hidden FKK beach and all usuall amusements expected in seaside town.
The appartment provided exactly what we needed, despite Jadranovo being quite remote place with limited opportunities for entertainment. The beach was easily accessible, securing daily portion of our fitness needs, so we could with no regrets enjoy daily fiestas on a shady terrace. The furnishment of the appartment was very nice and practical, so despite it really looked much smaller comparing to pictures, we did not feel limited in any aspect. The hosts, Nikolina's parents were very nice and always helpful throughout our stay. Neighbourhood was very quiet most of the time. I would recommend this appartment for couples or families with small kids, who prefer to relax.
We stayed in Nikolinas appartment for one week and we were quite satisfied with the place, althought I could imagine few things to be improved. First of all, the landlady is very kind, sympathic and careful. We could ask for anything and she was very willing to help. Also the appartement was very very clean, well equiped (I only missed a wooden chopping board in the kitchen and a container for sorting a rubbish) and not far from a beautiful white sandy beach very suitable for little children. During our stay we travelled to several beaches in the sorrounding, but none was as perfect as the white nearest one. Generaly Selce is very friendly place to be. The appartement has a garden in the shadow, where is nice to be during the rest in the day and also the evening. On the other hand I quite missed the lock in the garden gate, because just behind it, there is a turning road and children like to play with the garden door … due to eliminate the danger, you have to watch the child all the time and can not leave it to play in the garden on its own. The road is not very busy but in the night you can still subtly hear another close motorway. Those, who are used to sleep in absolute silence, have to shout the window and the appartement door, but then there is too hot, so the air-conditioning would also be an advance… For these things I estimate the app with 3 stars as very good for the low price.
Thank you Lenka for suggestions.
Nikolina was very helpful and forthcoming. I had a ton of questions before I got there and she answered them all in a timely manner. I had high hopes. Unfortunately, even though it is a nice apt., our expectations were not met. For one, the apt. is a lot smaller than what you would assume from the pictures. Second, I assumed that I had an apt. all to myself, since in the ad it clearly states "GANZE UNTERKUNFT" (whole apartment). I had no idea that it wouse a HOUSE with someone living upstairs. It would have been fine, if the house wasn't made of "sand paper". You could hear everything. From the dog walking, playing, BARKING (non stop), to a cell phone ringing on vibrate, to toilet flushing, people talking etc. You get the idea.
I had made this booking since it says it's perfect for families because it's a quiet neighborhood. That might be true, but only if the family upstairs isn't home. Another HUGE issue for me was that the people upstairs SMOKED. Again, none of my business, except that the smoke (since they smoked inside) came through the ventilation and ended up in our bathroom! Which, when you leave the door open, it's in your living room. I asked them to please stop smoking and their answer was to put on the ventilation. Problem with that was, that it only blew HOT humid air inside the apt. And since it was warm enough as it is, we didn't want that. That was the biggest issue for me being a mother and a non smoker! Unfortunately, I also missed that part in her ad about the dog, or I just didn't think that it was on the same property or upstairs. Again, since it states you get a whole apartment I never assumed we would have people upstairs. The apt. is not worth what you pay for. Tiny little bathroom, tiny bedroom. No real hallway. You are basically the bottom half of a house. The biggest problem was that however the apt is set up upstairs, the main area must be right above the bedroom, so comes night time, you hear everything (including the dog). Really big problem is you are trying to get a 6months old baby to sleep. There were numerous occasions our little one was woken up from a huge noise. I am not saying the people upstairs (her parents) did it on purpose. It's just that the house isn't really built to keep any noise inside. It travels!
Unfortunately, I wouldn't recommend to stay there if you are with babies or if you are allergic to smoke and don't like much noise coming from upstairs. Too bad because Nikolina seems like a really nice person.
Once again Petra im sorry you wasnt happy, I understand everything bothers you when you have small baby. It will get easier in time;) All the best.
Bardzo sympatyczna gospodyni. Czuliśmy się jak u rodziny czyli wspaniale! Cudowna miejscowość, w tym czasie cisza i spokój. Super plaża. Apartament w którym można naprawdę wypocząć.Pozdrawiam
Byli jsme s apartmánem spokojení.
Je malý, ale útulý a čisťoučký.
Nikoliny maminka byla vždy ochotná nám zodpovědět co bylo třeba.
Ještě jsme si chtěli pobyt o den prodloužit, ale už se blížili noví rekeanti :) .
Díky za příjemn zázemí pro nás i naši smečku.
Grazie alla mamma di Nikolina, Antonieta devo dire che abbiamo fatto una settimana di vero relax a Selce. L'appartamento era come me lo aspettavo, piccolo ma molto accogliente e tranquillo ma nel suo piccolo era ben accessoriato. Il piccolo giardino che avevamo lo abbiamo sfruttato tutti i giorni. Lo consiglio vivamente ad una coppia che voglia stare tranquilla a 5 minuti c'è il centro del paese con i relativi servizi e a 10 minuti una stupenda spiaggia con ombrellone e 2 sdraio a meno di 10 euro al giorno. Penso che come ne ho l'opportunità ci ritornerò molto volentieri.
We were welcomed very warmly by Nikolinas Parents-in-law and their cute dog after we arrived at the beautiful House. :)
Although Nikolina was not able to be there when we arrived, we always stayed in contact and she wanted to make sure, that we're fine. We stayed there for a week and had a really wonderful time.
Whenever we had a question, it was no problem to ask .
The apartment and garden are absolutely beautiful and just like the pictures show. Also, Jadranovo is a beautiful small town and there were a lot of nice places to discover.
The four of us would totally come back again. :)
Thank you so much !
Nikolina's apartment is very nice and cozy. It is also well-equipped, especially the kitchen, which was the pleasure to make food at. We found information about the area provided by Nikolina very helpful! There is a binder with the map and the description of the important places in Jadranovo. Thanks to that we learned about where to buy fresh fish. :) Thank you very much for being so professional and letting us stay at your place!
Host sempre puntualmente presente ad ogni messaggio e richiesta, la casa era precisamente come descritta sul sito.
La cittadina Selce dove si trova l'abitazione è graziosa e vicino a molte opportunità di visite
Bio nam je užitak ugostiti Nikolinu i njenu prekrasnu obitelj. Od srca ih preporučamo.
Nikolina y sus acompañantes han sido muy agradables y educados. Estancia corta pero ha sido un placer hospedarlos. Saludos
Nikolina was a great guest. We were always able to easily reach them, they were super friendly and left our place spotless. We would welcome them back anytime and highly recommend him to other hosts who wish to open their homes to them as they would treat it with care & respect.
