We arrived a bit early, but the apartment was already prepared and waiting for us. Ana (the host) was very happy to see us, we got served a welcome drink and a lot of smiles with real warm and positive energy from the whole family. The apartment is as on the photographs, maybe even better, the balcony surely is larger than it seems.
The apartment is cozy, clean and smelling fresh. Because there is no lobby on the photos we weren't sure how the rooms are organized, but it was better than expected. The two rooms with beds are separated by two doors with the bathroom in between, which is great for the light sleepers. There are some things that could spoil it for extra-picky guests though, like a missing chandelier and heating pipes sticking from the floor (one can be seen near the sofa), or unfinished facade, but for the most, the apartment is very nice, we enjoyed our stay. The out-door shower is a great extra, we took most of our showers there, very practical and time-saving!
The location is somewhat perfect, the view is better than on the photos as you can see the harbor from the balcony/terrace and the the copacabana beach is less than a minute away. The bakery is next door, open till midnight. The shops are two minutes away.
Major throwback for Okrug and probably for the whole Čiovo island is terrible traffic towards and/or through Trogir and the mainland. It took us more than an hour to get to mainland on our way home - even though we tried to avoid the traffic by leaving early (before 8 am Saturday). The situation is very similar every evening, but there is a well established boat line to Trogir which helps greatly. We profited greatly from our host's information and did not lose much time in the traffic. Hopefully the new bridge to Čiovo is going to help - and help soon.
All in all, we enjoyed a brilliant vacation on the beautiful island of Čiovo, the beaches are great, the water was warm and clear, the host is faboulus. Besides the warm welcome, we received lots of fresh veggies from the home garden and all the info we wished for. Very helpful in finding the beast beaches, cycling routes and parking spots for the evening stroll in Trogir. Very nice and helpful people, would like to stay with them again.
We also went to Split one night (highly recommend), but would next time maybe take the boat which is quite cheap and brings you straight to riva, no hassle in finding an empty spot for the car.
