Eco-friendly seafront house

Stončica - 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, 15 minutes’ walk from the main road!! The house has an outdoor shower and no drinking water.


The place is a little paradise in a quite secluded spot of the sandy bay Stoncica. Only a step away from the crystal-blue sea guests can enjoy in their own little nest. The location is in the nature, away from any infrastructure so it is desirable that our guests are modest and adventurous by nature and also in touch with all the animals that surrounds us. I also ask my guests to be tidy and take a good care of the place.

There is about 10 minutes walk from the first paved road so all the luggage needs to be brought by hand unless if we arrange a taxi boat (around 400 kunas). Water is from the well so saving water is necessary and the shower is outdoors and has room temperature water.

The house is very nicely decorated in the style of Provence. It has an air-condition and an outdoor shower, a basically 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.


Access to the house is possible from the sea or by land. The small path leads from a parking place to the house and it takes a 10 minute walk to the house. The luggage and drinking water needs to be carried along by foot. Usually i wait for my guests at the house. I will send the directions by whats-app once you contact me. If you come by foot we recommend bringing smaller baggage because a pathway leading to the house gets narrow in some parts.

Definitely most elegant way is to organize a taxi boat (from port of Vis) which guests often choose to transport the luggage directly to the house. But you have to let us know prior to your arrival and hopefully the weather conditions are fine as well.
I can help with organizing a taxi-boat from the port of Vis.


The internet connection is still not very good in some parts of the island. Our bay is mostly covered and the signal is usually strong and fast enough but if your stay depends on a perfect wifi connection and you want to to work undisturbed we warn you that it is not 100% reliable. A Wifi connection is available on the location. The router is located in the house above due to a better transmitter signal. It depends on the transmitter load (number of tourists) and sometimes depends also on the weather.

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 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.

Emergency contacts and some extra tourist informations are listed in the booklet in the house and If any information missing i am always available by phone.

Hope to hear from you soon and best wishes,
My contact is: 552 (Sara)



If you are a hiking person there are some very nice paths around the area where you can go. 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 beach bar and a restaurant which is just 10 minutes walk from the house. In the mornings and late evenings the empty sandy beach and tranquil paths along the coast are beautiful.

The closest shop is in the next village 4km away. A town of Vis is about 7km away.

The house offers a lot of intimacy especially end or beginning of summer. In high season there is more nautical tourism and more people on the island in general. There is only one weekend house next to your house but it is not inhabited. Sometimes the owners come to take a swim in the afternoon if they are on the island.

There is no well organized summer public transport here. A mini bus goes by (from Vis to Stoncica, Rukavac, Srebrena and Stiniva bay) twice per day but a better possibility might be renting a (e)bike, car or a motorcycle.

I am available for any further information you need and I will be glad to help you with anything you wish to do during your holidays. It is possible to organize any kind of additional program for you, excursions or boat trips around the island or only recommend few nice spots to visit.

The water is from the well so saving water is necessary. And communication prior to your arrival is also necessary so we can figure out the way of bringing your luggage to the house.

We also ask our guests to keep the place tidy and take good care of things. It is difficult to renovate on such secluded area and if something goes wrong we need to patiently wait for the repair service from the mainland. So again, if you wish that everything is accessible, repaired and done quickly think twice before booking it.

We try to be nature friendly so modesty and awareness of the protection and conservation of nature is desirable (saving energy sources, recycling, etc.)

In order to maintain the no damage policy and keep the security deposit, please leave the place tidy on your departure. We don`t expect you to deep clean the place but we would greatly appreciate if you could leave our apartment pretty much as you found it.

- Please be careful with candles, do not use them away from the house and always place them on the candle holder.
- Do not move the mattresses from the loft to the floor.
- Do not flush any other products down the toilette but the toilette paper

Check-in is from 15pm and before 23pm,
Check-out time is at 10am or before.


- Be sure to take a quick look around to se that you have all your belongings. If you leave something behind, we will be happy to ship it back to you.
- If you have moved, turned off, or unplugged something, please try to return it to its original position/condition.
- Empty the leftovers and coffee grounds from the dishes and please wash the dishes and leave them to dry. We are happy to put them away.
- Check out if the glasses, plates, pots in the cabinets and drawers are cleaned.
- Before leaving please carry all the garbage you made in to a trash containers located at the parking place.
- Take away or dispose of whatever food you brought in with you. But again, if you think we can use it, feel free to leave it.
- Turn off all lights, air-condition as you leave.
- In case of self check out you can leave the keys in the door.

Water in this island is very precious. Use only as much water as you need.

Use boxes for plastic, paper, glass & bio waste.

Some local people collect plastic bottles and packaging of yogurts to return them to the store and get some money for each bottle. You can leave them next to the containers in town.

Honor peace and quietness of the neighborhood.

If you break any items (other than normal wear and tear), you will be charged a full replacement fee. If you or any of your party damages the home or leaves it such a mess that it cannot be prepared for the next guests, you will accept full financial responsibility for making it right. This includes the financial responsibility for their relocation as well as any lost income for the home. You assume full replacement price for new similar items/structures that are destroyed or damaged due to neglect. You assume any and all court costs and attorney fees if necessary.

"By staying in this apartment you explicitly agree to the Terms and Conditions made available to me prior to making my booking."
"You specifically agree to any charges levied by the property in respect of damage caused during your stay. and/or any additional room charges for late checkout, missing items, room keys not returned on the day of departure.
You are aware that you shall be informed by email prior to any monies being charged."

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 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
