5/5 Excellent

We are a family of four, who wanted total seclusion, privacy and luxury. Which is what we got and more. Vedrana & Milan have thought of everything in this villa, right down to lighting and a really fully equipped kitchen (including sharp knives - who has ever rented a property with decent cooking knives??) We were able to relax totally - the beds were comfy, the pool was wonderful, the villa was spotless and Vedrana and Milan ensured we had everything we needed for day trips - even arranging us a little skippered boat for the day - which we can't recommend more highly, it was a wonderful day. Podgora itself is charming, Small enough to be quiet and friendly, but large enough to have a good selection of restaurants and coffee shops. My husband hired a bike to ride to the top of the mountain and used 'Podgora Puls' bikes in the village. Fantastic service from Ante there, so do please use him if you want to hire a bike. We had a wonderful meal at Roko. I highly recommend the sharing steak platter. The olive oil factory that you drive past on the way in to Podgora is really worth a visit. We have rented many villas over the years, and Villa Oliva is definitely the best we've ever stayed in. Vedrana & Milan are hard working, thoughtful hosts, and it really shows in the quality of everything in their villa. We really hope we'll be back one day.

Fantastic in every way - 6 stars
Adriatic sea in the front, mountains in the back and olives trees all around in the neighborhood. Fantastic place with an exceptional high standard, lovely atmosphere and every detail taken care of.

Detail Orriented
Beautiful property, views unsurpassed. My family of 5 and our parents (total 7) stayed here comfortably for a week. We came during a heat wave, but the air conditioning in the bedrooms kept them icy cold. This lovely couple were available at a moments notice for any need- making reservations for dinners, a private boat tour, and even rushing to the house to unlock a door one of my children had unintentionally locked behind them. So quaint being able to pick your own veggies for cooking. The memories of dinners on the patio watching the sunset will stay with me for ever. Thank you for sharing this lovely home with us!

5/5 Excellent

Amazing villa - beautiful peaceful location
This villa is beautiful- the hosts were wonderful - they go above and beyond to help you. The grounds are gorgeous- sea and Mountain View. There is a heated pool which the kids loved. Great exploring in the local area and the Biokovo Park is only a 5 min. drive. Only 1.5 hours from Split and 1.5 hours to Mostar. Perfect for families and couples or friends - such a wonderful place with wonderful hosts!!!

5/5 Excellent

Stunning, beautiful, perfect vacation home
I can't say enough good things about our week long stay at Villa Oliva. The villa is beautiful, the grounds are more lovely than the pictures and Milan and Vedrana are wonderful hosts. They walked us through the property, gave us advice on where to eat, day trip excursions and were available at any time for questions. We cherished our week of relaxing on the grounds of this beautiful home, with no neighbors close by and a beautiful view of the Adriatic. Don't look any further than this beautiful, lovely home for an amazing week in Croatia!
