We just had one night in Zadar , and this was a nearly perfect place . The rain stopped after we arrived and we easily walked into and back from town . The apartment was very comfortable and the parking was convenient . Our host was very gracious and gave us a fun welcome . Unfortunately the WiFi didn't work despite Goran's help, but since it was only one night we managed without it.
One of the big positives about the property is the location .. and as they say the 3 most important aspects of a property is location , location & location ...
This had it all .. really close to the beach and a few quiet restaurants & bars , close to the bus station for airport transfer, close to the old town , close to a supermarket but the apartment is set in a very quiet part of town .. this was perfect as we did not have a car .
The house was spotlessly clean & had good facilities in the kitchen and everything you would need for cooking etc .
The two bedrooms were both very large & comfortable and again very clean & tidy .
Great A.C , WiFi & sat Tv all were available.
The toilet and shower was also great and very clean & tidy ..
The best though was the private garden and the outside shower - this was handy coming back from the beach .
What made this stay even more pleasurable was the owner Goran - he was fantastic, very friendly & very very helpful.
I would definitely recommend staying here & I really hope I do again .
Zadar is a lovely city and really want to see more of the area next time ,perhaps hiring a car would be a good idea.
We got the ferry over to Preko( £2.50) - this was a great day out , would spend more time seeing the whole island .
This apartment is just perfect with everything you need with a private garden and parking. It’s quiet and peaceful and perfectly located near the sea and the city. Goran greeted us with a local drink and showed us around the useful places. He was very helpful in case you need anything. this is the place to stay if you want comfort, quietness and great location!
We spent quite a while deciding where to stay in Zadar and this seemed to meet all our criteria. It had to be a quiet place to sleep; Goran's place is very quiet and it's very near the bus station so you can get from the airport easily and to the various places that you must visit while is Zadar (Plitvice lakes, Nin, Pag, etc.). There's also a good supermarket very near. There's also a lovely beach just 5 minutes walk from the apartment, and the old town is 15 minutes walk. The best attraction for Goran's place though is the private garden. It's part of the larger garden for the rest of the building but one part has been fenced off, so when you come out of the apartment you have sole use of a sheltered patio or the grassy area. Just great for relaxing in at the end of a busy day, and for breakfast listening to the blackbirds.
During the first 2 days couple of issues were sorted promptly by Goran the owner who took it all in his stride. While this place is well worn round the edges and lakes in decor the security Quietness locational are excellent and of course Goran is a wonderful host and only ever a phone call away even to give advice on Zadar, as he lived there all his life he very knowledgeable of it. so if you ever decide to visit this Beautiful city as it is indeed worth a visit, so instead of giving your money to some faceless big national hotels support the local Gorans of this world just a nice regular guy.
