After booking online with mainly just architect pictures we had a little doubt in our mind as to what we were turning up to. HOWEVER, on arrival we were blown away! Sunshine paradise is a beautiful modern and stunning holiday home!
The home has three bedrooms all with en suites, a toilet, laundry room and a big open kitchen diner and lounge. All of the bedrooms and main living areas open out onto the patio with access to the pool and veranda. All windows and doors have brilliant black out shutters. The house was pristine and decorated fantastically.
The grounds of the home are lovely and barely overlooked, with only two neighbours. The grounds consist of a lovely well kept pool, a cabana with rattan furniture and a playground and netted trampoline. Perfect for families or couples.
The owners couldn't have been more accommodating, we were invited to a local game, and also invited to a local event where most of the community came to help a charitable cause. If you need anything during your stay, the owners are happy to help with restaurant suggestions, directions, show you around, nothing is too much trouble. They come every other day if it suits you to clean and check the pool, or cut the grass to ensure the garden is maintained and your enjoying your stay!
We stayed for two weeks and half way through out bed linen and towels were changed. The villa provided you with pool towels and shower towels, comfy pool beds and a lovely table outside on the veranda.
All I can say about this villa is that it really is paradise! We most certainly didn't want to leave! And hopefully will return!!
The local area (Gruda) had a few restaurants and a couple of supermarkets! The local people are really friendly and we all felt extremely safe. The next local town where we found ourselves going for a lot of meals and excursions was Cavtat (15minute drive away) and that was beautiful as well. Where the villa is situated, Dubrovnik airport is about a 10/15minute drive. Whilst Dubrovnik itself was about a 40minute drive. However you could get a boat like us - it was a great way of getting there without paying for car parking and you also got a lovely view of the surrounding area; the boats ran until 23:00!
This beautiful Villa has a lot of memories for us all and I would be more than happy to answer any questions people have on whether deciding to go or needing some advice once they have booked! Thank you Ivanna and Mario for making our holiday so so special! O. X
