“Absolutely incredible villa - we didn't want to leave”

We travelled to Villa Maruka as a group of 6 friends in June 2015 and we had the most incredible stay. The Villa itself is absolutely gorgeous - especially the outside space with the beautiful sea view, lovely pool and the bbq/dining area, which we spent hours in! The inside of the villa was also lovely, and very cool with air con in every room and really spacious bathrooms. The location of the villa is fantastic - only a 5/10 minute walk to the beautiful Mirca pebble beach, and then a 30 minute walk along the coast either way to 2 larger towns, with lots of lovely restaurants. The Island of Brac is a fantastic place, with stunning scenery, beautiful marina towns and the most fantastic restaturants hidden only a 10 minute taxi ride into the mountains.
Our stay was made even more fantastic by Sanja, the villa owner who couldn't do enough for us. She was so friendly and helpful, and knows the island, (and almost everyone on it) incredibly well - she provided plenty of restaurant and activity recommendations for us, was always contactable and even provided the most delicious tomatoes from her garden. On our final day once we'd checked out of the villa, she transported and kept hold of our luggage and even arranged sun loungers on the beach for us all.
An absolutely amazing holiday in every respect!

“Delightful property, Relaxing holiday, Beautiful island”

Stayed at Villa Maruka with our 3 grown-up children. The villa was lovely; well appointed with large comfortable beds and super bathrooms with endless hot water. The villa is situated off main road in a delightful village with a useful shop. Lovely and quiet -apart from the bells! The decking area for sunbathing got plenty of use. The pool is small, but good for cooling down.
There is plenty to do -we did sea kayaking, hired a boat, visited the monastery at Pustinja Blaca (well worth the walk,but watch for pot holes and scratchy bushes on the drive down) and many of the beautiful little villages and ports. Also had a day in Split -the old town is amazing.
Sanja is a treasure. She is a mine of information and endlessly willing to help book restaurants, boats, or whatever you need.

Liked least: The pool was a little small and quite cold

“We had a blast in Villa Maruka”

We (me, my wife, two children (2 and 4 years old) and my parents-in-law) spend a amazing holiday in Villa Maruka and in Brac island. The both beat our expectation. We enjoyed excellent facilities of the villa and our kids really loved the pool! The villa is situated in a small and quited village which is a perfect situation for a relaxing vacation with the family. All needed services was nearby and a car trip to Supertar's services (restaurants, superstores etc.) took only about 10 minutes.
We had a car rented for the whole week and we made several car trips to another small villages and beaches in the island. Sceneries were incredibles and the sea was already warn enought to swim. How the sea water can be so cristal clear?
Thanks Sanja for your warm hospitality!
