This apartment surpassed expectation. The location is amazing - the beach is 5 mins walk away but the apartment feels really private and secluded. The view from the balcony is fabulous - we spent most of time out there. Had a little trouble finding it at first and the road up is a little narrow but that is the nature of the town. The apartment has everything you need and is bright and airy with a small supermarket just round the corner and restaurants within walking distance. We were sad to leave.
We loved our stay in Opatija. It was a lovely, large apartment for 2 couples with incredible views over the ocean. The balcony was perfect for breakfast or afternoon drinks and the lounge/kitchen area was tastefully decorated. The only downside was that the wifi was unpredictable and we were unable to access for a while. Overall though the apartment was excellent and we would highly recommend.
We really enjoyed our stay here. The apartment had many conveniences that we did not see elsewhere, coffee pot, electric tea water heater, washing machine (no dryer, but clothesline). The living room was expansive with many windows. Both that and the balcony had beautiful views. Also there is a beautiful garden and patio area. Wi-fi was excellent.
The only downside were the baths. The second bath was actually two flights down from the rest of the space; the 4 of us shared the up bath. The up bath had a shower with tub, but the tub bottom has a hump making a standard shower actually a bit unnerving.
Words of warning... The streets are very narrow. There is a parking space, but we were given a car upgrade (just say no!!!!) and had a lot of trouble getting in and around. Don't just go to the address - ask for directions to where you will park.
Second, it is a pretty steep climb to the apartment from downtown. That seems normal for the area, but if you have mobility issues, pick a different option. It's not very practical to use the car for transport in town.
We were greeted by our host who helped with parking and showing us the apartment. The drive up is a bit tricky, but once the car is parked you do not need to move it. There is comfortable seating for four in the living room and there is a table for eating. There was every appliance so that eating or having snacks in the apartment was very easy. The walk to the Main Street and beach is very close. Good restaurants are very near also. Unfortunately our time was rainy so we did not use the wonderful sun deck or garden BBQ area. The view is fantastic. An overall wonderful place to stay.
We enjoyed our stay in the villa apartment. Clean, comfortable, great views and perfect location near the downtown and the promenade. There are plenty of shops and restaurants, the food and service were great. My kids still miss cherry strudels we had every morning at the cafe in Hotel Milenij. The host Elena gave us a very walm welcome, lots of helpful advice and when my son had a fever she personally drove us to the nearby hospital to see a doctor. I highly recommend this place to anyone who is visiting Opatija.
