Eco-friendly seafront house

Stončica 16 - 21480 Vis Croatia - Stončica - Croatia

Little paradise is located in a secluded spot in a beautiful bay only a step away from the sea. Located in a sandy Stončica bay, access only by foot, 10 minutes’ walk from the main road. The house also has a fireplace and an outdoor shower.

The place is a little paradise in a quite secluded spot only a step away from the crystal-blue sea. The location is in the nature, away from all the infrastructure so it is desirable that our guests are modest and adventurous by nature. There is about 10 minutes walk from the first paved road, water is from the well and the shower is outdoors. Before booking it please make sure that the place suits your nature and read all the descriptions below and the house rules.

Modesty and awareness of the protection and conservation of nature is desirable (saving energy sources, recycling, etc.)
As the water is from the well, saving water is highly recommended. The idea is that sweet water from the well is to be used exclusively for washing the saltwater from washed dishes and body. Drinking water needs to be brought along and the house is about 10 minutes walking away from the parking place so guests should be prepared to live in nature and with nature. :)

SURROUNDINGS
The house is very nicely decorated in the style of Provence. It has an air-condition and an outdoor shower, a good equipped kitchen and everything necessary for daily stays (2 towels per person, 3 toilette papers, blankets, kitchen equipment, basic spices, oil, vinegar, detergents, soap, candles, ...). All the rest (food, drinking water, beach towels...) needs to be brought along.

Sleeping area is on the loft and unless you are extremely tall or overweighted it is easy to reach the bed. Because of the unprotected loft stairs the place might not be so suitable for little children.

In front of the house there is a covered porch with wooden table and benches from which the stairs leads to the sea. You can relax in the hammock or sunbath in deckchairs.

We highly recommend you to visit us in low season when you can experience complete peace and privacy. A good book in the shade or just listening to the crickets will soon relax you from the everyday stress. In the high season there are more boats coming into the bay so there might be some noise from them but you still have your own access to the sea.

If you are a hiking person there are some very nice paths around the area where you can go or visit some other parts of the island. On one side there is a half an hour walk to the lighthouse and on the other you can go to
the closest sandy beach with a bar and a restaurant which is just 10 minutes walk from the house. The closest shop is in the next village 4km away. A town of Vis is about 7km away.

GETING AROUND
There is no public transport arranged in the area but there is a possibility of renting a bike, car or motorcycle. I can rent you a boat if you have a license for driving a boat or help you with organizing the transport. You can also call the taxi or ask some locals to take you along when they go to town of Vis and hitchhiking is also common on the island. Walking to the town of Vis (7,7 km) takes about two hours. And the closest shop is in a village Podstrazje (5,3 km), about an hour walk. By bike that would be about 30 minutes.

ABOUT THE ISLAND
The island is pretty small, it is about 20 km long and 10 km wide, it has about 45 km of paved roads in total and many stony paths. The only public transport on the island is a bus from Vis to Komiza but there are options for boat trips and renting car bikes or motorbikes. You can find vineyards, olive groves, pine trees, agaves, dry walls, stony villages and many other attractions on the island. There is just so much to do that all the time you spend over here will be too short to see it all. ...Green cave, Blue cave, the beaches of Srebrna, Zaglav, Stončica, beautiful bay of Stiniva, the highest hill of Vis Hum and the Tito's cave, the town of Vis and the town of Komiža, military tunnels and so much more. Rural family households and places to taste olive oil, wine and marmelades have delicious food offer. There are also many hidden places (and beaches) where you can be all by yourself. So much to do but at the same time, being on the beach and just reading a book sometimes does the trick.

There are 2 ways of public transport that connects the island to the land. If you are by car, bike or if you have a pet, we recommend a ferry. On the ferry your pet can stay with you during the transport. On the speed boat, they have to wait in a separate area. You can check out the ferry or speed boat schedule here:

Before you come I will kindly ask you to tell me which option are you taking and when so I will be prepared to wait for you. Also, are you coming by car or without?

For any additional question, I am always here for you and wish you a pleasant stay. Your eco-friendly host Sara.

    Amazing, peaceful location with the sea at your doorstep. The little house is so cute and cosy with everything you need, we absolutely loved staying here. The loft sleeping space and outdoor shower was a novelty and kind of felt like we were "glamping" and we enjoyed washing our dishes outside with sea water! The house is a 10 min walk from the car park but we liked this as there was no noise of traffic and it felt like we had our own hide away from the world, plus the walk to the car provided a beautiful view of the bay. There is a small sandy beach nearby and also a restaurant, about 10 mins walk away also, but we spent most of our time relaxing on the terrace and jumping in the water from there. It was such a dream to be able to spend 1 week here for our honeymoon and I think it's the perfect place for a romantic getaway. Our host Sara was very kind and helpful and always available via WhatsApp, you can even do yoga with her in the town of Vis during your holiday! We would love to come back one day :)

    It has been noticed: Energy saving lights, Ecological cleaning products, Car-free accessibility, Recovery & reuse of rainwater.

    Beautiful people, beautiful guests!! I would be always happy to have you back again. Best wishes to both of you <3
