Recommendations & Guests' Comments

The reason we received Superhost rating on Airbnb

We could not have hopped for a better host and stay. Jakica’s home is so cozy and close to the beach, she left us wine from her winery and even did our laundry. I just refer to her as Nanna because she treated us like family.

Apartment Jakica

Jessica K. – USA

The view from this apartment is just out of this world. It’s perfectly located in Komiza, right by the harbour, meaning you have restaurants, shops and activities at your finger-tips. We were met and guided to the apartment and the hospitality was brilliant.    

Apartment Eneo

Oliver E. – UK

Ivica was a super kind host. The apartment looked exactly like on the pictures and is 1min walking distance away from the harbor of komiza. The little fisherman town is lovely! We really enjoyed our stay there and would love to come back.

Apartment Eneo

David L. – UK

Smiljana je predivna domaćica koja nas je na prvom koraku razoružala svojim friško pečenim kroštulama i svježe ubranim domaćim smokvama i grožđem. Odmah smo se osjećali dobrodošlo. Vrlo topli i dragi ljudi, svakako za preporuku.

Water

Vis is one of the rare islands in the Adriatic having its own potable spring water. It is worth visiting (and seeing) the beaches where you could drink fresh water directly from its spring: The Kamenice beach, and Pizdica/Pištica beach (the old local name), where the water springs out of the rock right to the sea. Almost all the beaches have the fresh water springs in their shallow parts, you could feel that while swimming in somewhat colder sea, which is the sign that you have found another spring.

Water on the island is of extremely high quality, which is rare for a karst area – it is safe both for drinking and preparing food. Interesting detail is that this water is pumped by electric pumps from great depths, the unbelievable 170m, which is some fifteen metres beyond the sea level.
