Description from owner


Villa Palma is situated amidst an Eden of green tranquillity at the highest point of the town of Sucuraj, on the island of Hvar. On all sides the property is surrounded by lush privately owned grounds of olive trees and vineyards with panoramic open sea views.

Villa Palma is a modern property, was completed in 2010 and enjoys all the comforts of contemporary living with touches of original Croatian features. This property consists of only three apartments. The Penthouse apartment is a spacious 60m2, offers everything you will need for your stay, including a brand-new fully equipped kitchen and terrace boasting spectacular sea views. The wonderful patio and barbecue area will enable you to enjoy under the stars alfresco dining.

Only a 5 minute walk into the old town, where you will be surrounded by authentic stone houses, medieval churches, beautiful marina and beaches, typical family run restaurants and incredible scenery. Its rural location in this quiet typical Croatian town will ensure that you will be immersed in and experience the authentic Croatian way of life – savouring all the local produce; fish, wine and olive oil to name a few.

We are well positioned with only a 5 minute walk to several beautiful beaches –from pine sheltered coves to rocky outcroppings. The nearby bays of Perna and Mlaska are unique because of the fine sand on the bottom of the sea, which cannot be found anywhere else. We are able to arrange boat hire for you and explore the island's diverse coastline. There are also several day boat excursions available to nearby islands and the Makarska Riviera.

On your arrival you will be welcomed to the property by the owner Vlado, who will be able to answer any questions you may have as well as provide you with up to date information about local events, excursions, shopping, beaches etc for Sucuraj and the rest of the island.

Also, on arrival you will find a welcoming hamper including wine, fruit and other essentials to ensure your holiday gets off to a relaxing start!

Very Good

“Such a wonderful stay”

Reviewed 8 Aug 2018

We have recently returned from a lovely week in Villa Palma. Our pre-holiday correspondence with Francesca was very helpful and clear. Vlado (her father in law) greeted us from the Sucaraj ferry with a huge smile - we'd have never found the villa otherwise! The apartment was just as described, complete with some useful food items, beer and fresh fruit. The view from the balcony is beautiful, and Sucaraj itself is perfect for a very quiet, relaxing stay with a selection of restaurants (we loved both Gusarka Laska and the pizzas in Guido's). The little beach at the bottom of the drive is charming, the town beach handy, and the larger beach at Mlaska great for the kids. We really settled into island life, ably assisted by Vlado, who couldn't have been more hospitable, down to little gifts for our boys, fruit deliveries, and a barbecue one night. Don't stay here if you want nightlife - it's a challenging drive to the main towns on the west side of the island - but if you want a charming taste of island life, it's perfect. We found our second week on the mainland positively hectic by comparison!

“Perfect holiday!”

Reviewed 16 Aug 2017

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday staying at this immaculate appartment. The location and the facilities were all that had been promised and much more. Although we had hired a car we did not use it and were happy to make the 5 minute walk to the port or to the beach in the other direction. Our host, Vlado was delightful and treated us to a beautiful meal on our last night and told us the history of the area. The views were stunning in all directions and I am missing the delicious smell of the ripening figs in the sunshine! We travelled with our teenage daughters who also had a great time. Not somewhere if you are looking for lively nightlife but it suited them well too after a stressful year of exams.

“Warm welcome and excellent view”

Reviewed 29 Jul 2015

We had a memorable holiday on the island.The villa, surroundings and host were excellent for spending qualitative holidays. We felt more like visiting loving relatives instead of impersonal tourists. Especially we appreciated: 1) welcome package (wine and food) 2) equipment 3) view 4) short distance to Sucuraj center and beach. Sometimes we had issues to connect to WiFi, but it is a nice opportunity to take a rest from social networks.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your great feedback! We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Sucuraj. Apologies for any issues regarding Wifi, it was a one-off problem that we were not aware of at the time but has since been rectified. We do hope to welcome you in the future and in the meantime send our warmest regards, Francesca and Vlado

“It truly is as beautiful as the photos!”

Reviewed 18 Oct 2014

We had a lovely relaxing holiday at the penthouse apartment. It was just what we ordered! The apartment was very well maintained and equipped, with a very warm welcome from our hosts, who were very friendly and helpful. We particularly loved the sunny balcony overlooking the sea!

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for leaving us your feedback. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Palma and do hope that you will visit us again in the future. With warm wishes from us all here in Sucuraj!

“A real gem with balcony overlooking Adriatic”

Reviewed 5 May 2014

Stayed in the penthouse 4 days at Easter. Highly recommend this place - it is as the pictures show - a beautiful location, stunning views, modern, bright apartment with well supplied kitchen and lovely quiet garden for outdoor eating which unfortunately Easter weather did not allow us to experience. Booking and deposit arrangements were easily made by email. This was my 3rd time staying in Sucuraj. It is at the eastern most tip of Hvar island almost touching the mainland. Many tourists visit Hvar old town and Stari Grad - a formidable 1.30 drive over mountains to the western end of the island but we chose Sucuraj because it has a quiet, close knit village feel yet is just a relaxing 30 min ferry ride across from the busy Dalmatian coastline between Split and Dubrovnik. The little harbour is beautiful and though it's not an overly commercialised village there are a couple of restaurants, shops, a pub and a pretty and historic church. Although the drive to the apartment takes a few minutes round the north side of the village, there is a pedestrian path to the harbour that takes just two or three minutes. Vlado, the owner's father/father in law is a very kind and friendly gentleman and an excellent host. He speaks a little english and we enjoyed home made merlot wine and honey produced by other relatives. We had brought basic food essentials with us but actually the fridge was stocked with bread, eggs, milk, butter, walnuts and figs and unexpectedly a gift of delicious home made cake arrived on Easter Sunday! Drvenik (where you get the ferry from the mainland) is approx 1:30 to 2:00 hour drive from Dubrovnik with several ferries a day from 6.30 am. Cost approx €20 for car and 4 adults. We will definitely return here in the summer when we can enjoy the balcony and garden more!

Owner's reply: We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Palma despite the bad weather and we look forward to welcoming you in the future! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us your feedback and useful information for future potential guests. With warm wishes from us all in Sucuraj.

“So good I booked for next year while staying here (never done that before!)....”

Reviewed 2 Oct 2013

This is an absolutely exceptional holiday rental in a very beautiful place. It's the combination of a stunning apartment and a magical location that makes it so special, and then you have the fantastically generous, kind host family who are just brilliant. The apartment is immaculately clean, really stylish, spacious and really well-equipped with thoughtful touches that make it feel like home. We arrived to find milk, juice, beer, wine, butter, jam, honey, bread, tea, coffee, sugar, oil, vinegar, and fruit - some of which was from Villa Palma, and all of which was really appreciated/scoffed! - having been met by Vlado at the harbour so we could follow him to the house. There were two of us, so we had a bedroom each and the beds/pillows were great. The views from the house (and esp. the penthouse apartment) are mesmerisingly beautiful - you could spend most of your holiday gazing out at them! We loved star-gazing from the balcony at night, having breakfast there every morning, and chilling out after busy days finding idyllic beaches with a glass of wine as the sun set. The area: this is the gorgeously sleepy, quiet, less well-known end of Hvar island and the very best place to stay locally. You are 3 mins v scenic walk to the village (3 supermarkets, several cafes, 7 or 8 good restaurants) and about 90 seconds from the nearest swimming spot in the amazingly clear sea. You can drive to Stari grad and Hvar town in about an hour, and we did that one day, but the pleasure here is exploring what feels like a secret place on a well-known island. We went to a different beach every day (max 30 mins drive) and in September had several to ourselves - we got quite cross one day to be sharing with 6 people! Other than that, we settled into village life, having coffees and ice-creams in the cafes and eating out in some really good restaurants - great seafood, and some excellent pizza, plus fab Croatian wine. If you like a quiet base, characterful places to stay, and tourist-free (ish) locations, I can't recommend Sucuraj highly enough. It's the ultimate chill-out place. We had all this, for 10 days, but also the generosity of Tomos and Francesca, Vlado and Palmina. They couldn't do enough for us, while we were booking (really helpful tips about the rest of our trip in Croatia) and once we arrived: they helped with our boat hire (we had Tomos' cousin taking us out on an amazing boat trip for a day - a real highlight of the holiday), made dinner for us that night (thanks, Vlado!) and barbequed incredible local fish for us for a beautiful lunch with the family- again, one of our highlights in a holiday full of them. I can't recommend Villa Palma highly enough. We had a great time - so much so that I've already rebooked for next year (waited until I'd done that before posting this review - didn't want anyone getting my dates!). It's a very special place.

Owner's reply: We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We really appreciate it. Looking forward to seeing you soon… Not long now!

“Second time around even better”

Reviewed 27 Sep 2013

Last year we stayed in 1st Floor Apartment at Villa Palma and enjoyed it so much we came back this year again for two weeks, but this time we stayed in the Penthouse Apartment. The apartment was very clean, very well equipped and offered fantasic views. The hospitality from the hosts was just fantastic. Having seen a lot of the island during our first visit, we were very content in just spending relaxing days at the nearby beach and then going to the village in the evening for a lovely meal. The hosts even treated us to a barbeque which was great. It was also a great opportunity to taste some of their own wine and other self made products. The children really loved the holiday, particularly the beach - swimming, exploring the rock pools, eating watermelon, etc, and the Penthouse Apartment offers a great living area for the whole family or even couples to relax in the evening. I thoroughly recommend the Villa Palma Apartments.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for taking the time to review this property. Very much appreciated! We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and we are really looking forward to welcoming you back this year again.

“Fantastic accommodation in a stunning location”

Reviewed 3 Aug 2013

We found everything about Villa Palma to be excellent. The location, amenities, friendly welcome and standard of accommodation. The Villa is very well equipped and has everything you need for your stay. The furnishings and cleanliness is of a high standard. We were welcomed at the ferry port by Vlado who went out of his way to be hospitable to us. We hired a boat from friends of the owner which made our exploration of the island a lovely adventure. Sucuraj is stunning and unspoilt. The restaurants in the harbour - just a few minutes walk from the accommodation - serve excellent food with friendly service and the local people are very welcoming. We will definitely return to Villa Palma.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for taking the time to provide your feedback on the property and location. I am thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and we really hope to welcome you again soon to Villa Palma!

“Wonderful apartment, great location”

Reviewed 17 Jun 2013

I can not recommend the apartment enough, and thoroughly agree with all the positive comments on this site. We had no problems arranging our stay with Francesca who helped us plan our trip, and we had a lovely time with our host Vlado who was very generous. Everything you need to cook was provided, inc. oil and condiments. Sucaraj was quiet during our visit as we arrived a few weeks before the season began, so we had the beaches to ourselves and a lovely welcome from the locals. A great place to relax on our honeymoon. We plan to return to Croatia and will definitely be going back to Villa Palma.

Owner's reply: Thank you very much for your feedback. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us at Villa Palma and hope to welcome you all in the future! Greetings from Sucuraj, from all the Croatian family

“The perfect spot”

Reviewed 21 May 2013

The apartment is as clean as a whistle, when we first entered, we got the impression we were the first guests there – it was only the guestbook that proved otherwise. The apartment is furnished in a modern, very tasteful manner and offers absolutely everything you might need during your stay, whether it’s for a weekend or for a month. You can sense everything in the apartment was carefully planned. If there is one thing that stands out in particular though, it has to be the terrace view. Located on the peak of a hill, Villa Palma Apartment offers a unique view overlooking Sucuraj and the Adriatic coast, which is a true highlight. The surrounding is extremely peaceful and quiet, it’s the perfect spot to run away from the hustle and bustle of city life. At the same time it’s very conveniently close to the Sucuraj marina with its restaurants and only a minute walk from the sea. The water is crystal clear, the air is clean and refreshing and you can admire the beauty of nature around you. During our stay we have visited Dubrovnik, Split and took a tour of the island and found Villa Palma a great starting point for those trips. Villa Palma is not merely an apartment though, the place has a soul. The lovely hosts made sure we felt welcome and had everything we needed. We also spent a charming evening together, enjoying typical cuisine and wine and sharing travel experiences. These warm-hearted and friendly people are the reason why the memories of our stay are not ones of renting an apartment, but rather visiting our friends.

Owner's reply: Thank you very much for your feedback. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us at Villa Palma and hope to welcome you all in the future! Greetings from Sucuraj, from all the Croatian family
