Danijela and Mario were perfect hosts, very friendly, helpful and discreet. We loved to talk with them outside and our kids had lot of fun with their dog Belina. After we arrived to Grohote, they prepared welcome snack for us from local products. Also their home made olive oil. Everything delicious. We loved our vacation at their place very much. House was spacious, clean and very cosy, surrounded by beautiful very big garden with olive trees, grapes, flowers and carob tree. We liked to sit and eat outside on the porch under pergola in shade of climbing plants. It was our favorite place with fantastic atmosphere. We visited different places and beaches at Maslinica, Nečujam, Stomorska, but our three kids loved most the beach at Rogač. It was nice quiet and clean beach at a bay with gravel. Entrance to the sea was quite slow, so we didn't have to worry about kids. Shop and local farmers market was few minutes by walk thru the narrow streets of Grohote with nice old houses made from stone. On Danijela's advice we visited very nice konoba Momčin dvor, with patio, just few minutes by walk from house. We had several nice dinners there and we were always very satisfied with meal and friendly staff. There is much more to write or say, but it's much better to experience this lovely place. Thanks Danijela and Mario, it was true pleasure!
If you're looking at the reviews for Danijelas place because you're not quite sure if you should rent it or not, let me give you one good tip: BOOK IT. There are so many reasons why this place is close to perfect, it's almost hard to remember them all. But I'll try. Danijela, her boyfriend Mario and their dog Belina were already waiting for us at the harbor in Rogac, when our ferry arrived. After a five minute drive, we parked our car in front of the house. The place looks amazing from the outside. Blooming flowers, humming bees and a big terrace in the shadows. The olive garden next to the house stretches over such a long distance, that it's hard to see its end. There are neighbors, but the whole place is nontheless secluded from prying eyes. The house itself is really spacious and has a warm, cozy feeling to it. Practically it was far too big for us (two people, two dogs), but we liked the freedom it gave us. The kitchen has really everything one could need. WIFI works perfectly and everywhere. The air conditioning also works fine, but takes a bit of time to really cool the place down with the house being that big. Besides that, everything was very clean and tidy. We also got a tasty welcome plate with cheese, prosciutto, vegetables and bread! The small village of Grohote and its center, which is a mere 2 minutes walk from the house, also has a special feeling to it. The stone houses and narrow streets make up for a very interesting flair. Everything seems really laid back and it was great to stroll around. We were a bit suprised at first when Danijela told us that whey would be there in a small house on the property for the time of our stay, but it really didn't bother us at all, since we didn't even really notice them while we were here. But be sure, Danijela and her boyfriend are extremely nice, pleasant, funny and hospitable people. They even grilled for us and took us to a secret bay where we and the dogs could be on our own the whole day and enjoy the sea. We went there almost every day - it's simply amazing. Long story short: It can't get much better than this. The island is beautiful, the village of Grohote with all its shops and the market is super near, the house is perfect and Danijela was the ideal host. Thanks again for the great experience!
