Guest reviews

Vi bodde här i 5 dagar och det var 5 dagar helt problemfritt. Lägenheten är skinande ren, har ett fullt uttrustat kök, bra AC. Den lilla uteplatsen är mysig att sitta på och ta sitt morgonkaffe. Smiljana pratar ingen engelska, men vi förstod varandra ändå. Och hon är otroligt gästvänlig och trevlig. Kan starkt rekomendera detta ställe.

Probably the best experience that we had on airbnb. We LOVED everything about it. Highly recommend.

Smiljana je jedna od najljubaznijih domaćina koje sam ikada upoznala. Stan je odlično opremljen i na super lokaciji. Dobili smo kartu sa svim plažama na koje  obavezno da odemo, gdje možemo ići kajakom, najbolja mjesta za pojesti i rute za biciklirati. Svaka čast! Skidam kapu!

Beautiful apartment in the centre of Komiza, just minutes from the sea and many bars/cafes and bakeries, but on a quiet side street so the evenings were silent and peaceful. The apartment was spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. It was just such a pity we couldn’t stay longer! 🙂 Smiljana was warm and friendly and even brought us fresh grapes one day, which were incredibly sweet and delicious. I would strongly recommend this apartment to anyone, you won’t regret it.

Tout était parfait. Un accueil remarquable avec des petites attention, visite des alentours et surtout tout les conseils pour les visites a faire durant les vacances. Nous avons était super bien accueilli et aiguillé a tel point que nous avons adapter notre programme sur les recommandations de l’hôte. Je recommande vivement cette endroit pour l’accueil, l’appartement et l’emplacement ! A faire absolument !!!

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.

Location

Komiza

Komiža is the second largest town on the island of Vis. About 1500 people populate the village. The first written documents originated from the twelfth century. During the second half of the twentieth century the island was a military zone forbidden to outsiders. Until recently, the island was not burdened with tourism or the intense building trades of the mainland. Because of the islands isolated past, today Vis is one of the pearls of Croatia's Adriatic Sea.

Komiža is the first place that was visited by Pope Alexander III.  In the year 1177 fishermen from Komiza were fishing the Palagruza islands. The Pope sought shelter from a storm, at the islands, on his way to Venice. The fishermen transported the Pope from Palagruza to Komiza. Where, at that time, he concecrated St. Nicholas Church. Until recently the village of Komiza was supported by the efforts of fishermen and to a lesser extent agriculture. The hard work of the local fishermen, catching and processing the pilchards, provided the resources to build everything you see today in this picturesque little village.

Before World War II there were seven factories in Komiza for processing fish. Over time they merged into one, «Neptun». Until recently that was the biggest and most important economic resource in Komiža, but it's been completely ruined in transformation.

***

Tens of thousands of descendants of Komiza have pioneered the fishing communities along the west coast of the United States. The fishing traditions of Komiza founded the tuna fisheries of the southern ocean and the salmon fisheries of the northern ocean.

In spite of modernization, ancient fishing memories, tools and customs are saved in the fishermen's museum. This museum contains the biggest collection of fishing apparatus in the world, and a restored example of Komiža's gajeta falkuša «Cicibela» - a unique style of boat, symbolic to the fishermen of Komiza.

Komiža has become an exclusive touristic destination. With an intimate atmosphere and a rich assortment of culinary delights, more and more guests are attracted to this hidden treasure. A poetic fishermans town with the most sunny days in a year, with hundred year old carob trees, picturesque stone houses, medicinal mediterranean plants, rosemary, garden-sage, lavender, ladys grass, and vinyards cover the hillsides, surrounding this pearl on three sides, protecting the village from storms. An oasis of biodiversity found on the list of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) as among the ten heavenly places in the Mediterranean. Hot summers and soft winters, woods of pine, vineyards, orchards and fields, scarps and caves, picturesque and hidden coves offer visitors the opportunity to be Robinson Crusoe in the temporal heart of Europe. Scenes under the surface of the sea are even more impressive. In the depths of Vis's quiet kingdom, in contrast to the rich world of sea life, you will find the resting place of ships from the former Italian and Austria-Hungary fleet. Shipwrecks from the first battles of armoured ships from 1886. Also at rest are American fighters which in 1944 replaced the wild blue yonder with the cobalt blue depths of the Adriatic. Who once comes to Komiža, is forever called to return.

Closest beach

Kamenice beach

Kamenice is the most popular beach in Komiža or young people. It is a beautiful pebble beach, surrounded by tamarisk and pine trees that provide shade in hot days. On the beach there is a fresh water spring, that was very important for local people - the water was held in large reservoirs cut in stone called "kamenice".  The beach look on the west, that is why on this beach you will enjoy most beautiful sunsets on the island of Vis.

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.
