We have stayed at John's villa Skakavac for two weeks in August and are very happy with the place we rent. The room is spacious, nice shared kitchen, grilling place, unforgeable terrace with magnificent see view, perfect Wi-Fi. We are very thankful to the John's partners Ivanna and Zoran for their hospitality and friendliness. Thank you very much Zoran for picking us in Rijeka up and preparing everything for grilling. We will recommend this place to our friends. Good luck and a lot of guests!

I love my home, but this place was so great! The views are spectacular. I spent a few nights just sitting on the lanai, sipping wine, gazing at the stars. The rooms are large and comfortable. bathrooms were roomy and the kitchen had a lot of space to move around. The staff was so helpful...even drove us to the bus station when we asked about a taxi. (we paid her even though she tried to not take the money)
Besides the view, the very best part of this place is the location. We could walk for about 10 minutes down a great path to the beach. From the beach we could take a 25 minute walk into Opatija. It was just such a great place. The worse part of this place is having to leave.

We came from Hungary. We were there one week (We went with a 6 years old child). Hosts were very nice. The apartment is not far from the coast. The beach is stony, slowly deepening, but it is worth to take diving shoes. The room had a beautiful view. The kitchen is well equipped. Unfortunately, there is no air conditioning or ventilator in the room, but the automatic blinds reduce the temperature in the room.
Magyarországról jöttünk, 1 hetet voltunk az apartmanban, 6 éves gyerekkel. A vendéglátók nagyon kedvesek voltak.A szállás nincs messze a parttól, a szobából a kilátás gyönyör? volt. A konyha jól felszerelt. Sajnos klíma vagy ventillátor nincs a szobában, de az automata red?nyök mérséklik a h?mérsékletet a szobában. A strand kavicsos, lassan mélyül, de érdemes vinni búvárcip?
