The Sunny Cottage" is our family's heirloom. Built in Trstenik, at Peljesac peninsula, sometime at the end of the 19th century, it was thoroughly rebuilt and renovated in 2000, and then renovated and refurbished again in 2012. Our family has been spending summer holidays in Trstenik since 1965. Our sweetest childhood and youth memories are always connected with Trstenik, so we sincerely hope that, if you decide to come and stay in our Sunny Cottage you will go home with some delightful Mediterranean memories of your own.The cottage is tucked in a quiet neighborhood of the old village, only a 5 minute walk to the wonderful 300 m long pebble beach. Next to the cottage there is a pomegranate tree, under which is your own parking place, the shade being the perfect protection from sun and heat.

The downstairs area consists of a bright and spacious living room and kitchen, all in one. The kitchen is equipped with electric devices (fridge, freezer, stove, oven), small appliances (coffee machine, electric kettle, iron), as well as all the necessary utensils for cooking and serving.

In the living room there is a comfortable sofa bed, a satelliteTV with some 90 programs and a stereo Hi-Fi. There is also a wi-fi in the cottage (May-October), just like in almost all the bars at the seafront.

There is a bathroom with a shower, sink, toilet and a washing machine. Fresh linen and a sufficient number of towels are the standard offer. You're free to take more or change them whenever you like. Upstairs in the attic there are 2 rooms with sleeping facilities for 5 grown up persons. There is a baby cot as well. The beds are actually very comfortable mattresses on the wooden floor, put on industrial pallets, which makes the attic very charming and cozy. The attic has a great air conditioner, it cools off both bedrooms in a few minutes.

On the terrace there is a dining table with chairs, deck chairs with soft pillows, a sunshade, and an electric grill. Plus of course a little herb garden which we tend with loving care. Pick a few leaves of basil for your own home made tomato sauce or some rosemary for your delicious and tasty fish on a bbq. Your refreshing mojito cocktails need just a few leaves of mint to be perfect! Just stretch your arm and pick whatever seasoning you may need. Also feel free to take some herbs home, to keep memories of your wonderful Croatian vacation.

The Dalmatia region

There are numerous options to consider for your perfect vacation. Walk down to the beautiful pebble beach to bask in the sun and swim in the crystal clear sea. Follow the coastal paths and watch the fishermen mend their fishing nets, as yachts anchor in the Trstenik bay. If you feel like exploring and indulging your senses, you can take a trip to discover the wine roads and the nearby most beautiful vineyards of famous Croatian wines Dingac and Plavac Mali. The Peljesac peninsula features numerous walking paths and trails for hiking, biking and trekking. If you're interested in active holidays, we recommend climbing the highest peak of the Peljesac St. Elijah (961 m), offering a magnificent view of the islands of Korcula, Lastovo and Mljet. Taste the local delicacies in one of the nearby restaurants, including seafood specialties and local olive oil, or go oyster tasting at the nearby Ston oyster farms. Or if you feel like taking a boat trip, visit the neighboring island of Mljet. The island of Korcula is only 30 km away, there is a ferry and a speed boat from the town of Orebic across to Korcula. You can also make a day trip to Dubrovnik, as it is 90 km away, about an hour and a half's drive. If you are more of “an underwater” kind of person, you can take a scuba diving course in Trstenik's "Freaky Diving" club and discover the marvels of the Adriatic sea. Round off your day by strolling the waterfront and watching the sunset, or enjoying the lively banter at a local bar or restaurant.

Peljesac Peninsula

The village of Trstenik is situated in the central part of the southern side of the Peljesac peninsula, in the Dubrovnik county, just between the islands of Mljet and Korcula. Trstenik is connected to the mainland by the costal road via Ston and by a ferry line from Ploce to Trpanj.

Although the village is very small with less than 100 inhabitants throughout the year, during the summer months it is bustling with life and activities, with all the amenities and supplies. There is a grocery shop, a post office, a church, a fruit/vegetable open market, bars, pizzerias, a restaurant, a scuba diving club and several wine cellars.

"Superb idillic"

The 3 of us Mum, Dad and Lewis (aged 3 – almost 4 now!) stayed here in June and have to say this cottage, and the town in general, was absolutely superb. The cottage was equipped with everything you could want, plates cutlery etc and is set in an absolutely fantastic location. The walk up from Trstenik takes about 4-5 mins is on a very quiet - dead end – road so with a tired 3(almost 4) year old on tow coming back from the restaurants at night was a breeze. Trstenik itself is lovely – with 4 or 5 nice restaurants to chose from Konoba Maris we found to be great fish btw - but they’ve all got their merits. There's a wee shop for essentials and a post office in town. The beach is great and close by and the views from there - as they are all over the peninsula - are absolutely amazing. House-wise , like I say, there’s everything you could need , the dishwashers handy as is the air conditioning works really really well – its upstairs but worked well enough for the whole cottage we found. If your reading this chances are you're thinking of staying here and if you are and you're after a quiet stay, with a good selection of cafe bars and restaurants, in a great cottage with a load of character , a brilliant host and a simply amazing location then you’ve just found it - this place is seriously good - book it quick! :-)

Dear Rory and Angela, you made me soooo happy with this wonderful review. I'm so glad you loved it there, this makes me even more eager to share my lovely cottage with wonderful people like you. Looking forward to hosting you there again!

"Great cottage"

This place is well equipped, in a lovely village, a short walk to the beach. Nothing was too much trouble for Maja and Ursula. A great location for exploring north and south, islands and mainland. All the kit was there for us and our 2 year old - the only issue was that the garden isn't fenced and there's a bit of a drop down to the road, so we had to watch him carefully to make sure he kept away from the edge.

Dear Heather, Thank you very much for your nice review. I'm glad you liked it there, both the cottage and the village. I can imagine it is not easy with a toddler, but I'm sure you would have watched him all the time anyway. If you decide to come again next year or any time later (and I'd be more than happy to host you again) it will surely be much easier and more relaxed for you, as he'll grow bigger. Thank you once again!

"Fridfull och avkopplande"

Underbart fräscht litet men rymmigt hus med allt man kan tänkas behöva . Övre plan består av fräscha och ljusa sovrummen medan köket och badrummet finns på nedre botten. Stilen är lantlig, charmig och genomtänkt så att den smälter med omgivningen i en liten fiskeby. Många små detaljer förhöjer trevlighetskänsla så som husets eget kryddrabbat med prydliga namnskyltar vid växterna. Uteplatsen är helt suverän , avskild och utan insyn utifrån. Till stranden tar man se på ett par minuters promenad och där kan man njuta av kristallklar vatten och vad som är mer ovanligt , inga solstolar som man måste betala för. Gott om plats och ingen trängsel. I övrigt, glömmer jag inte fantastisk stjärnhimmel om kvällarna. Ägarna Maja och Tihomir var behjälpliga och tillmötesgående och deras bemötande och engagemang gjorde vår semester blev helt bekymmerfri. Bara det att vi inte behövde betala förskott vid bokningen utan allting gick att ordna smidigt via mail kontakt och en stor portion visad förtroende.

Tack så mycket för din underbara kommentar! <3

"Perfect holiday at a perfect location"

We stayed at the cottage for a week and enjoyed it thoroughly. The cottage had all amenities to make a most comfortable vacation. The host, Maya, was very considerate and always made us feel as if she'd been around even though we didn't get to meet her in person (yet she was always available via mobile phone in case we needed anything). We also loved the location which was just outside the centre of a small fishing village, Trstenik, meaning it only took a couple of minutes to walk to the village centre (small shop and several cafès/restaurants) and to the local beach, yet it was very quiet and peaceful around the cottage (thus it really felt like staying in the countryside). We found the location perfect to make day trips around the Peljesać peninsula, the nearby islands and even Dubrovnik. Would love to stay there again!

Thank you so much for your nice review. I'm glad that you have enjoyed your vacation here and loved both the cottage and the village. As we have only started renting it out, we have many more ideas for improvements and I'm sure it will be getting better every year. You were great guests too and thank you once again for choosing us. Looking forward to hosting you again.

My first Cottage experience was when I was a single girl, on "chic-Adriatic-places-hopping" type of summer vacation.. Between magnificent Dubrovnik short drive away and crazy Hvar short cruise away :) my stay at Novak's was a soul food in between! My second was many years later with my hubby and baby boy.. In Trstenik you feel instantly like you belong.. you need the flip flops, the rest is there - the crystal water, beautiful beach, tasty food, nice people, Mediterranean scents, sights and sounds.. Heaven.. Can't wait to take my baby girl there!
