Private, romantic, quiet, undisturbed, and stress-free.

Vis natives say that this is the most beautiful seaside location on the island.

Ever-changing, spectacular view of the Adriatic Sea and nearby islands

Get away from the noise and congestion of tourists in town and at the beach

How can life be better? Walk just 25 meters through our cool, shady green pine grove to our private swimming dock to enjoy the most remarkable pristine, clear turquoise water. Just relax in the warm, therapeutic sea water, exercise or get to know the sea life with great snorkeling. If you wish, rinse off in the outdoor warm shower after swimming.Our grandson at age 4 with a flotation device, enjoyed the dock, and quickly learned how to swim. A small pebbly beach where children can walk into the water is another 50 meters. There are two more sandy beaches nearby with either a 5 minute walk or a 15 minute walk, and not accessible by car. Other fine popular beaches require a car. To further enhance your Adriatic Sea vacation Vis Villa has 2 double seat Kayaks for our guests at no extra charge. Just jump in and paddle for exercise, or quietly explore the seaside.

On those few days when the sea is not great, enjoy our outdoor, heated, salt-water SWIMMING POOL with or without the swimming current, either under the cover or open with the cover retracted. A 10-minute walk to the sandy beach Zaglav, gives an alternative sea experience.

Vis Villa is a large two story house with expansive terraces. We have two apartments (40M and 60M) that can each accommodate 4 guests. Two extra bedrooms are available at Vis-Villa that rent only as additional space as needed for the 40M and 60M apartments. Although it may be a little confusing, we had to list each apartment several times on this website in order to provide all combinations of apartments and extra bedrooms for our guests to book. We hope that explains why you see listings for 40M, 40M + 1 bdrm, 40M + 2 bdrms, 60M, 60M + 1bdrm, 60M + 2bdrms. Choose what fits you best.

Our 40 M apartment has outside private access. It has one queen size bed with a comfort adjustable mattress, and a pull out couch for 2, and a mini- kitchen, and eating area.. The bathroom has a roomy shower. It is ideal for one couple and children.

Our apartments are fully supplied with equipment and utensils for cooking.

Our open air traditional grill and outdoor kitchen is available for use of guests. Enjoy your meals on the private outdoor, shaded terrace also with the magnificent sea views.

Modern bathrooms have roomy showers and are equipped with hair dryers.

TV, high-speed internet, ceiling fans and heating are provided

Ecological seasonal fruits and vegetables from our garden are free to guests

We provide a Welcome Basket of goodies on arrival, including local wine.

Children over 5 years old are welcome, but sorry no pets and no smoking at Vis-Villa. Secure parking.

KAYAKING: Vis Villa now has 2 double seat kayaks for our guests at no additional cost.

TENNIS: Enjoy a match or practice with our “state of the art” tennis ball machine on courts reserved in Vis town

HIKING: Explore trails nearby for spectacular views, picking local herbs, enjoying the aromas, clean air, and antiquities of Vis.

We usually pick up the guests at the Vis ferry dock and give them about a 20 minute drive around the south east side of the island ending at our Vis-Villa. Here we give a little orientation to the apartment and to our waterfront, and then they unpack a little and take a swim. We still have about 45 minutes of guided tour around the rest of the island ending at Vis town where they can rent transportation and go to the grocery store. Some guests prefer to stay swimming and go to a local restaurant for dinner, then go on the rest of the tour the next morning. Some go on the tour after their swim. Either way they have seen an introduction to the interesting places to visit and can make their transportation decisions more clearly.

The nearest village is Podstražje which has 2 really good restaurants, and a grocery store within 10 minutes walking. There are also good restaurants in Rukavac about 2km. There is a fresh vegetable delivery truck that comes to our driveway nearly every day. He also has milk and eggs. Fresh bread is delivered every day. Grocery stores are in Vis town and Komiza and we usually go there once a day to play tennis and buy supplies. There is a bus from Podstrazje to Vis and/or you can go with us in our car. Scooters, cars, and bikes are available for rent in Vis.

John and Pat, the American/Croatian owners speak English and Croatian and live in the Villa. We look forward to hosting you in our villa. Although we haven't advertised the Vis Villa as a hosted vacation accommodation, we have been hosting guests here for 14 years. It gives us great pleasure to share with guests our unique perspective of the history, culture and beauty of this special island, and our superb location.

Pat is the author of the book," As the Tree Fell, the History and Reunion of our Croatian Immigrant Family and the Joys and Challenges of Retirement on Vis, an Adriatic Island".

We hope this answers your questions. If you have more, don't hesitate to ask. We agree that the more information you have, the more satisfied you will be.
