What an absolutely amazing experience in Solta we had and it was all because of Stojko 's generosity. There was a language barrier but Stojko 's welcomeness, smiles and gestures were all we needed. We got bumped up to the top floor penthouse studio which blew our minds, a massive space with a huge balcony and a treat for our 10year wedding anniversary. We had 7 nights to spend in Croatia and revisit the same islands we did when we were 10 years younger and in party mode, but it was suggested by a cab driver to go to Solta if we had never been and if we interested in a quite get away which is exactly what we needed this time round. We arrived there on Tuesday very easy trip by ferry and then a short bus ride. It was so amazing that we were supposed to leave on Thursday but just had to stay an extra night because everything was so perfect and Stojko was more than happy to have us for an extra day. The island is so beautiful, Stojko has two very expensive fancy bikes for road and off road cycling and wow they can cruise! We used them for 5 euros a day. Wife and I cycled every where, stopped every 15min to swim at these little beautiful cemented flat rock locations dotted all around the coast line. And if you are fit enough for a 7km uphill ride early morning, then peddle it to the town called Grohote for the little fish market , its a solid uphill ride, but worth it, we picked 4 really big fish for 70kunas which was like £10 as opposed to spending 10x as much in a restaurant for one. There is also naitive, honey, figs and vegetables too. And then coming back we super free wheeled it in less than half the time we got there, cheering ourselves all they way back past olive farms. Loads of high point views of all the other islands gave us a wonderful sense of how off the grid we were. We woke early every morning and even got up to catch the sunrise as it rise directly in line with the balcony and lounge, just fantastic.
Sitting on the balcony both in the day and at night seeing and hearing the Solta ambience was just perfect. Wife and I have to say this was our best Airbnb experience.
Thank you so much!
