If you are looking for a relaxing, away-from-it-all vacation in the Mediterranean with fabulous views, then Zavala is the right place! We spent nine days on the island and wish we could have stayed longer. Our hosts were wonderful and very helpful in answering our questions and giving us tips and insider information about places to visit during our stay. The house itself was luxury pure, with lots of space both indoor and outdoors (three bedrooms and bathrooms, four different terraces on the south, west, and north sides of the house). Appliances and furniture were new and state-of-the-art, and the beds were very comfortable. Everything within the description was accurate, as were the pictures. The house was clean and well-maintained, and our hosts were quick to respond (without being called) after a torrential rain shower (uncommon on the island). The house is nestled within the heart of the old town of Zavala, overlooking beautiful vineyards and the pure blue sea. Although it is a good, steep walk away from the beaches (about 500 meters), the views are spectacular and well worth the jaunt down to the beach promenade. Day trips to visit the larger towns (Hvar, Stari Grad, Jelsa) are easy to fit in and are only 15 minutes to an hour away. If you have the time, we highly recommend a day trip to Scedro for snorkeling and lunch or dinner, and be sure to visit the Restaurant kod Ive on the island -- terrific seafood, and the kids can swim while you wait. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on Hvar Island and can't wait to return again soon!
