Eco-friendly seafront house
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.
This eco-friendly house is located in a secluded spot in a green bay only a step away from the sea. You can enjoy complete peace and isolation by the stunning crystal-blue sea on your own private beach. Charming Interior is very nicely decorated in the style of Provence. It has all the necessities, a fully equipped kitchen, air-condition and an outdoor area with a fireplace and a lot of space. There is a possibility of renting a small private boat. This house has a loop bed with 1 double + 1 single bed. The bathroom with toilet is indoors and there is an outdoor solar shower.
Stončica bay is a breathtaking paradise, because nature is still untouched, far away from cities and infrastructure, it is desirable that you are adventurous and love pristine nature and eco-friendly lifestyle. From a parking place, there is a 10 minute walk to the house. At your arrival, we will help you in getting and carry the luggage.
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. So the washing is to be made first with salt (sea) water for which we provide bio-degradable cleaning products and then only overflowed with sweet water. 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. :)
Spend a creative, active and relaxing time in our paradise. Mornings and evenings we'll practice yoga and meditation at different breathtaking spots. We'll be taking walks in nature, picking up herbs, making handicrafts and natural cosmetics, socializing and having fun. We promise you'll be enjoying the peaceful surroundings. At night we'll be observing the sky of a thousand glittering stars. We'll be taking a day off and visit some of the island's special spots and homesteads. Delicious vegan and vegetarian meals will be prepared for you. For more info about yoga retreats please send us a request.
A path that winds along the sea leads on one side to the bay, where there is a sandy beach, a restaurant and bar on the beach. On the other side it leads to the end of the cape and to the lighthouse. One weekend house is located directly near but it is not inhabited. In the mornings and late evenings the empty sandy beach and tranquil paths along the coast are beautiful. Its a perfect area to take quiet morning walks. The house offers a lot of intimacy, especially offseason.
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 :)
