“Fantastic Holiday in Hvar at Apartment Masha”
Reviewed 15 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We have just returned from a fantastic two week stay at Apartment Masha in Hvar, a perfectly relaxing holiday with great weather, a beautiful town, friendly locals and fantastic hosts in Olga and Jurij. The apartment was very clean and very comfortable, well equipped and felt very much like a home from home. There are superb views from the balcony and the apartment is very close to the centre of Hvar but far enough away that you don't hear the noise from the busy waterfront area. For the first week of our two week stay our teenage daughter and her friend came with us and they also loved Hvar and what it had to offer and again Olga as our host had some great local advice for the girls with regards where to go and what to do.

The local people were very friendly and engaging and my own view is that the restaurants around Hvar offered very good value for food and drink with regards the quality and quantity, yes there are one or two places that were a bit more expensive but there are many more that offer great food at a good price. In particular I would recommend Dalmatino (book ahead if you can) absolutely fantastic food and service, Fig (for lunch) and Bistro For - great value food.

It was also a personal pleasure to meet Olga and Jurij and of course 'Masha', great hosts who were genuinely interested ensuring we were comfortable but also providing some history and background of both Hvar and Croatia, I only hope that when visitors come to Scotland they are met with the same warmth and hospitality.

I would also concur with all of the comments from the previous review from JPCoveney.

“Our best holiday so far!”
Reviewed 15 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Our stay at Apartment Masha for two weeks at the end of June this year was absolutely wonderful. The apartment is extremely comfortable and clean, in a quiet residential area with a lovely view of the bay from the balcony. The welcome and attendance from Olga and Jure was, without exaggeration, beyond expectation. I would like to say that it felt staying with relatives, but I do not have any relatives who are that pleasant!
Hvar is an amazing place, around the main square there is a warren of stepped narrow lanes. These are easily navigated by steps down means toward the square and up the opposite, no steps being parallel. Just take the time to wander around though as there is something at every corner, glorious blooms hanging into the lane, stunning views framed between the buildings, children playing on the steps……….etc., etc.
The harbour is an ever changing vista, with the arrival and departure of ferries, excursion boats, yachts, cruise ships in the bay and from our balcony in the morning or evening it was fascinating to watch.
Olga and Jure gave us very good advice about using the water taxis to the outlying islands, what too see, where to eat and not etc. We followed their advice and had a lovely relaxing holiday.
Finally there is something that I should mention. There appears to be three types of visitor to Hvar, those like us there for an interesting and relaxing holiday in a beautiful environment, those who are there for a day visiting from a cruise ship and those on short stay partying visits for the night clubs. The day visitors get lead around in groups like sheep and appear not to get a chance to really flavour the place and the party goers arrive at night and seems to be generally well behaved and have a good time but don’t see the place at all. To these visitors I would highly recommend going back to Hvar, take your time, talk to the friendly locals and have a really close look. I know we are going to and we shall be staying again at Apartment Masha!

“Great apartment in ideal location”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Me and three friends stayed here for one week and could easily have stayed another. Not only was the apartment lovely and spacious, our hosts went above and beyond to ensure we had a great holiday by giving great restaurant recommendations and ideas for day trips. When I head back to Hvar, I will definitely be booking it around the availability of this place.

Well, I am really flattered by such a nice review, but I think we did not do anything special. It is just a normal think to do . Helping people to feel welcome in our house is the thing we find a normal behavior. Thank you very much!

“Best accommodation I have ever stayed in!”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I stayed in apartment Masha for a week as part of a group of four girls aged 20-21 travelling from England to Hvar to celebrate university graduations. We absolutely loved our stay and couldn't fault a single thing with Olga's beautiful apartment. I would recommend the apartment to anyone, it would be fantastic for families but was also perfect for us who were backpacking.

Apartment: The apartment was spacious, spotlessly clean and yet still felt homely. The rooms are well equipped with extras including a hairdryer, travel adapters and toastie maker so we didn't need a thing. Bathroom was also modern and renovated with a good shower and plenty of towels provided. Wi-fi fast and always available.

Location: 5 minutes from the main square. On the map we thought it looked much further away but it's actually a staircase above the main square which means it's super-close to everything whilst somehow managing to stay quiet in the evenings when the town livens up. Supermarket and fruit/veg market was less than 10 minutes away, boats to the islands the same.

Hvar: Gorgeous. Hvar town is becoming a popular destination for young travelers and has a busy bar and club scene but this closes at 2am and everyone heads to Carpe Diem, Pink Champagne or Temple so the centre still feels like stepping back in time and isn't overwhelmed with nightlife venues (feels a little like the old town in Dubrovnik but much less touristy). I highly recommend heading to the islands, Mlini beach was gorgeous. The taxi boats cost about 40 kuna return (about £4) and the beaches are very unspoilt. We also walked up to the fortress above the town which is an amazing sunset spot. Food wise, GO TO DALMATINO RESTAURANT! It's mainly steak and fish but was one of the best steaks I've ever eaten and the octopus starter was delicious, staff all very friendly. We visited a few more in town which were all fine but this one really stood out.

Overall: I tried to write a balanced review but the only thing I could fault about the whole trip is that I couldn't stay longer! Olga and her family made us feel like we were there own family guests, offering us suggestions on places to eat and visit. They invited us into their home when we arrived and made us feel completely welcome the entire time. I hope to return to Hvar in future and would definitely be returning to apartment Masha.
