Harbour House is quintessentially Bolyan. This house is famous world-wide, appearing in most pictures of the old village. With its large terrace providing panoramic views over the harbour and surrounding area it is unique in that it is the only house that is actually right on the harbour.
Although not huge, the house feels surprisingly spacious because of the excellent way in which the house is laid out. Entry into a wide hallway stretching the depth of the house to the stairs gives you access to a large well equipped kitchen and an equally large ground floor bedroom; Stairs bring you to the bathroom and further on to a wide landing with the second bedroom and the terrace sitting room [this leads out to the terrace itself, with its large table, six reclining chairs and awning].
It also boasts a pretty garden that is hidden from the world behind the house. With a marble patio and dining area it is a lovely place to have breakfast or spend an evening.
Although the Bol fishermen still venture out in their little boats from the harbour, Bol is now also a cosmopolitan resort town with many little bars and restaurants surrounding the harbour. Guests can browse in the many little shops nearby, in particular, the beautiful little jewellery shop next to the house where Ozana sells exquisite hand made silver and Schwarovski chrystal jewellery as well as stylish silk dresses and wraps.
Bol is famous for Zlatni Rat, the Golden Horn Beach, a fine white marble shale beach that reaches into the sea like a horn, changing shape with the prevailing sea currents. It is also famous for its water sports, and the water sports centre is right next door, further down the Loza.
There is a great night life in Bol. All of the open air restaurants and bars come to life at dusk, and villagers and visitors mingle around the harbour and quayside: If you really want to party you can aim for Zlatni Rat and its night clubs or, if you prefer, enjoy a delicious cocktail at Varadera, the seafront bar on the harbour. Regular summer festivals with dancing and fun mean that the village always has something happening.
Although it is right at the heart of everything guests at Harbour House can sleep soundly in their beds as double glazing and secondary double glazing, combined with air conditioning keeps the house cool and quiet.
For guests with boats, a berth in Bol Harbour can be arranged.
Living waterside is a delight. In the late afternoon the sunlight reflected off of the sea, playing on the ceiling in the ground floor rooms through the louvres of the shutters, brings the ocean very close.

In the other direction, en route toward the Dominican Monastery with its lovely beach, the coastal path passes numerous small restaurants and eateries, including Mlin [The Mill]. Ribarska Kucica, a lovely seafront restaurant created from a traditional fisherman's house, is at the end of the coastal path. Here the food is flavoursome and inexpensive and the location is hard to beat. The beach is absolutely perfect for children.
