We absolutely enjoyed our time in this apartment and in the village. Like others who have commented spending time with Grandma was one of the highlights. She made us so welcome and was a great communicator even though we could not understand each other's language. The house itself was quite comfortable and adequate for our needs. Ivana provided helpful information about places to visit.

Everything was perfect! Ivana and her Family is supernice, especially her grandmother who lives next door and talked a lot with us even though we didnt speak the same language :) Very clean and Rakalj is a cute little village. Recommendable!

The house is sweet and clean. Using the BBQ was great. Waht I loved most was the grandmother of Vanessa who lives in the next house using the same garden. She is wonderful!

We had a very nice stay, the house is exactly like in the pictures, very clean and well equiped (e.g. moscito nets infront of the windows, hairdryer, kitchen things...). Additionally, we always got kind support if we needed anything, also by Emma, who lives close by (mille grazie!). The garden was also great, we always dined outside. The location was very quiet and an authentic charming small town, which was exactly what we city people needed. Beaches and water were beautiful. Many thanks for the great vacation time and the friendly welcome!

Ein toller Urlaub! Ein sehr schönes Haus mit viel Liebe gestaltet. Es ist alles so wie vom Gastgeber beschrieben und auf den Fotos dargestellt. Es liegt sehr ruhig, was widerum genau das war, was wir gesucht haben. Das Einzige, was ein wenig schwierig war, ist die Einfahrt in den Hof. Diese ist sehr eng und mit Autos, größer als ein Golf, Milimeterarbeit. Jedoch auch dies war nach ein paar Mal zu schaffen. Die Gastgeber sind super nett und hilfsbereit, geben gerne Auskunft über alles, was man wissen will. Die Umgebung ist ländlich/dörflich sehr schön. In dem kleinen Supermarkt im Dorf gibt es ALLES, was man braucht und auch nicht braucht :-) Wir können uns sehr gut vorstellen irgendwann wieder zu kommen. Vielen Dank!

Wir waren zu dritt mit Hund unterwegs und haben 2 Wochen in dem liebevoll zurechtgemachten Haus verbracht. Das Haus liegt mitten im Ort und man kann in wenigen Minuten sowohl das kleine Lokal als auch den Einkaufsladen erreichen. Wer Ruhe und Entspannung sucht ist hier genau richtig. Fernab der Touristenzentren und übervollen Strände. Trotz Hochsaison haben wir in der Bucht von Rakalj immer ein ruhiges, idyllisches Badeplätzchen gefunden. Allerdings ist der Strand nur mit dem Auto zu erreichen, dafür kann man fast bis ins Wasser fahren :) Oma Emma wohnt nebenan und hat uns mit Obst und vielen Informationen versorgt. Wir haben uns prächtig verstanden, obwohl keiner die Sprache des anderen sprach. Die Betreuung durch Ivanas Familie war sehr gut. Für uns war das ein perfekter Urlaub.
