Guest reviews

Börja med att säga, läge läge läge. Helt fantastiskt läge ca 50 m från stenstrand. Kan klart rekommenderar, stämmer väldigt bra med bilderna. Vi kan absolut tänka oss att återkomma.

This is one of the best airbnb experiences I have had. The space is wonderful, I can’t recommend this place highly enough. the owners, Yadra and Luka clearly want you to enjoy it and really make the effort to make your stay memorable. Yadra made us pancakes and brought us delicious figs which was such a treat 🙂 I wouldn’t stay anywhere else on Vis.

Ovaj prekrasan apartman bio je naš posljednji u 7-dnevnom odmoru u Komiži, koji toplo preporučujemo svim parovima koji vole slušati šum valova. Također je jako lijep pogled sa terase koja je sama po sebi posebna i pruža spektakularan pogled na uvalu Lučica i otok Biševo. Apartman ima mali dvor koji pruža intimu, a doslovno sve je jako blizu. Također je opremljen svime što vam treba, ugodan prostor. Domaćini su topli i pristupačni, jako smo zahvalni na trudu i divnom dočeku na našem posebnom putovanju. Hvala i veliki zagrljaj od nas.

Super location right beside a beach – short walk & you are in the Centre of a gorgeous town – great value and had a super stay.

I absolutely LOVED staying here! The place is super cute and the location could not be better – falling asleep and waking up to the sound of waves is absolutely priceless. Beautiful and private little balcony and an amazing view of the sea- I really enjoyed the sunrise and sunset from the terrace. <3 However, the best part of my stay was the people I meet! Lenko and Jadranka are soooo kind, open-hearted and very generous hosts. Thank you for the great tips of local places to eat, beaches to visit, and which regional wine to taste 😉 I felt right at home and had a hard time leaving! This little gem in Komiza is an absolute steal, and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants an authentic experience in this quaint sleepy fisherman village. Od srca hvala i nadam se da se vidimo uskoro! <3

I am reluctant to leave a review so that I can keep it for myself! The best place to stay in Komiža at the nicest small beach. The hosts are the nicest people who always have a smile and would do anything to make your show as wonderful as possible. I cannot recommend highly enough.

Amazing stay! Right across the street from a beautiful beach, and the host was incredible with home-made snacks and great suggestions on what to see around the island. Highly recommend!

If you are staying in Komiza, look NO further! Absolutely the most beautiful spot, with so much charm and outstanding views. of you think the pictures look good, they don’t do it enough justice whatsoever. Jadra is the most incredible hostess. Seriously, I had no intention on wanting to leave this gorgeous town and apartment. Everything you need, fantastic location, best spot in Komiza. Left a lasting impression, and I’m so excited to return.

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

Lucica beach

Lucica is another beach close to the town centre. Lucica is translation for local "small port". There are just several berths for boats in front of the beach, and the beach itself is well equipped with showers, cabin for changing clothes, beach chairs and beach bar. To the east there is a small reef that separates this beach from Jurkovica beach.

  • Croatia

I am sixty-five years old, and recently retired as a professional fisherman. The fishing and the sea are in my blood (being ‘salty’) and despite being retired, I still go fishing with my friends. My wife Jadranka and I decided to rearrange a part of our home into apartment and share with you this beautiful sea view. Our house is a house of flowers, too, famous in Komiza, thanks to my wife and her skillful hands – whatever she touches flourishes, even me, all these years with her ;). We wish to share with you the experience of living in Komiza, the beauty of the sea and the soft summer sunsets you could perceive being our guest. We are looking forward to your arrival!

If you would love to enjoy the submarine landscapes, you could dive on the northern side of the island and find out particularly rich submarine world. Except the natural beauties of the submarine world of the island, there are many traces of the rich and turbulent history Vis abounds in.

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.
