Just returned from an amazing week in Duboka Bay. Firstly, communication from the very start was brilliant. AE responded to emails promptly and answered all our many questions! We decided to get to Brac on the ferry. The taxi meet us at Split airport, straight on to 50 minute ferry, then taxi (via Lidl in Supetar) to the villa. The house manager was there to meet us and showed us around the lovely villa, which feels more like a home.
She gave us lots of info on the area, transport, food etc and was on hand for the whole time to help with anything. Always friendly, always efficient. It felt like having a local friend that you could just text with silly questions! The villa is very spacious and spread over 3 floors (lots of stairs!) The kitchen is extremely well equipped, we found everything we needed as we ate in a lot. Everything is spotless and the towels provided were lovely and plentiful.
The pool area is lovely although we spent very little time there as the AMAZING sea is a stones throw away! We loved the swimming platform, which is quite large compared to others around, with enough room for all 8 of us. The water is incredible and the bay itself is quiet, breathtaking and unique. We spent hours in the water using the paddle board and kayak that belong to the villa.
We ate all our meals on the outdoor table, which is shady and cool when it’s hot! We didn’t hire a car, but the house manager arranged for taxis whenever we need to into Milna to buy supplies, have a stroll and an ice cream or have a meal. Milna is quiet, lots of amazing boats and a chilled vibe. There are small grocery stores, great bakery and we managed to get all we needed.
Unfortunately, there were quite a few mosquitos around this summer, which I believe is unusual, so we couldn’t really open up windows etc, but that’s just one of those things. It certainly didn’t stop us having the most wonderful time and I think we are all spoilt for life!
A boat trip is a must! We hired a private boat that picked us up from the villa. It’s all so stunning. Recommend highly.
