The apartment is great BUT only for 6 adults!
WHY THE NEGATIVE FEEDBACK
The „Agency“, yes it’s an agency not the owner who posts on "airbnb". As we arrived the owner didn’t even know that we’re coming. They forgot to tell him. But fortunately everything went well. Where extremely unfriendly. They lied to us that the Apartment is for 7 adults. I asked them before how many beds this has and they said 3 beds + a sofa „which is in a separate room“ This is not true, the couch is in the kitchen.
First they told us that it is normal that when it says apartment for 8 then there are only 3 bedrooms and one couple hast to sleep at the ale. Ok that may be true for some apartment but we asked if the couch is at a separate rome before we booked everything.
After calling them several times - there where very unfriendly - they promised to call us back and will find a solution for us. After that, they never called back and you couldn’t get them on the phone anymore. We also talked to the owner who said, that he always tells the agencies that the top apartment ist for 6 adults not more!
We tried to find the agency, but after calling several tourist offices and driving a hole day, we found out, that the agency just has a mailbox in rovinj.
Also IMPORTANT - don’t book via airbnb - the agency charged us €470 more than it would actually cost. The owner has price lists everywhere which said €1.300 for 10 night - we paid €1770!
THE APARTMENT & LOCATION
The Apartment is on the 3rd floor an has 3 separate rooms. It’s about 150 meters to a small beach (really small - just for 10 people), which can be a little bit dirty when the wind is strong. But about 500m walk along the beach you get to a very nice place. It’s clean part with sand and rocks. It belongs to the Valdaliso & Dependancen Hotel plus Camping.
The owner of this apartment is one of the nicest persons we’ve ever met. He lives there with his 3 kids and one of them was always available if we had questions. Unfortunately he lost his wife a year ago and so it’s a lot of work for him to manage all the room.
One evening the owner bought fish for us and we had a barbecue together. Sometimes when we sat outside, he came to us to drink a glass of wine or to tell us stories about the history of Croatia.
You can’t use the garden as described cause this is for the owners family. But there is a very nice place in front of the house.
Notice also that you’re not alone in this house. There are 4 more apartments, not as described in the description.
So we can highly recommend this place! BUT not the Agency!
