The White House
Studio | No Bedrooms | sleeps 2
'The White House' is a quiet haven on the outskirts of the village. It is ideal for the couple who want to get away from it all and have some quality time together! We are situated a mere 10 minutes from the beach - a pleasant, short walk through the village - you can borrow a couple of our sun loungers! In the evening you can relax on the terrace with a glass of excellent local wine and watch the locals play boce (their form of bowls) - it can get quite heated at times!
This property is spacious and airy, with loads of day light making it feel really homely. It is furnished to a high standard in a contemporary but cosy style, with comfortable furnishing.

The Dalmatia region
The long, rugged Dalmatian coast, backed by high mountains with hundreds of offshore islands, is becoming Europe's most popular vacation spot. In summer, Dalmatia is flooded with tourists attracted by the sun, scenery and marvellous, healthy, Dalmatian cuisine. The coast is dotted with everything from major towns and cities such as Šibenik, Trogir, Split and Zadar, to picture-perfect beaches such as lovely Brela Beach.
Average temperatures are: May 22 C, June 26 C, July 30 C and August 29 C but temperatures in July and August often reach the high 30s.
There are a number of beautiful national parks in Dalmatia which are worth a visit. For details please go to http://www.find-croatia.com/national-parks-croatia.html.
Bibinje is probably the most ideally situated resort in the Zadar area. It is a REAL village with its own character and vibrancy. It is a mere ten minutes by bus to the main bus station in Zadar. Also, as a base to travel from, it is ideally located on the Zadar - Split - Dubrovnik coastal road but the White House is 5 minutes maximum from the fast highway access road.
Zadar is rich in history and also modern amenities. New attractions include the water organ and the Salute to the Sun. For more information please go to http://www.zadar.hr/English/Default.aspx
Prepaid SIM cards can be purchased locally. This is a much cheaper way of keeping in touch with family and friends back home. Card costs 50 kuna and then you are charged 1 kuna per min / SMS or MB of data (plus 0.29kn set-up for each call)
Bibinje is the largest village in Dalmatia with approximately 4kms of coastline with beaches and pathways. It is ideally situated, whether you are going to visit the nearby national parks, including the Kornati Marine National Park, or just to relax by the sea. The town museum offers an interesting collection of exhibits of life in Croatia and in the John the Baptist's Church you can see sacred 15th century exhibits.
Marina Dalmatia is on the outskirts of Bibinje and has various facilities. It is the largest Adriatic marina with 1,400 berths. Most of the Croatian based charter companies are based here.

"Fantastic base to explore Bibinje and Zadar"
Just back from a fantastic week staying at the White House in Bibinje. Eddie and Linda the owners are such good hosts, from picking us up at the airport to giving us all the local information and things to do. Bibinje has a nice selection of restaurants and bars but we enjoyed going into Zadar old town during the day and at night. It is easy to get the bus from Bibinje into Zadar and they run until late. We also got the ferry from Zadar to an island called Uglia (not sure if that's how it's spelt) its a lovely island. If you walk along into Kali from there, there's a fantastic seafood restaurant where we ate 4 times in the week. All in all a lovely relaxing week and we would definitely hope to return to one day.

"Cosy apartment with the friendliest welcome"
The White House apartment is deceptive: on first viewing it seems small, but it is very well designed and appointed, and there is in fact plenty of room for two, with dining area and large sofa bed. Don't worry about it being a sofa bed either- it's very comfortable indeed, top quality; and I write as someone who generally can't stand the things.
We both found it very comfortable to stay in. It sits in a pine wood, meaning an open, wild, pine-scented pine wood, not some dreadful UK plantation. Neighbouring properties are at a reasonable distance.
Best of all are your hosts. Eddie & Linda give the best of welcomes. Eddie will give a guided tour of the village by car, which is hugely useful in getting orientated, and the two of them are perfect hosts- friendly, always on hand for advice, a blether, and/or a beer, but respecting your privacy absolutely.
It's perfectly situated for Zadar- about 15 minutes to the old town by car. Supermarkets, including a monster Spar International (not your UK corner shop) and a standard Lidl, about 10 minutes away.
Highly recommended for couples wanting a quiet place to stay that's still handy for town.
