Villa Maja is located near the historic ports of Ston and Mali Ston, 12 km from the main Dalmatian coast road at the entrance to the Peljesac peninsular. The house can only be reached from the village of Hodilje (2-3 km from Ston) by a 400 metre footpath, not by car. This guarantees you complete privacy and tranquillity. Alternatively, you can take a boat (available for hire with the house) from Hodilje to the private landing 100 metres from the house.
The house is set in spacious grounds on 3 levels and isolated from other properties, so you will be completely alone. The living room opens onto a big tiled terrace containing chairs and tables with fine views across the sea to the Dalmatian mainland. The shallow sandy bay in front of the house is very safe and good for swimming, sloping gradually down into deeper water. You can also jump off the boat landing into a small rocky bay.
The villa is exclusive and contains a big living room with satellite TV, which can sleep 4 more, kitchen, large bathroom with bathtub and separate shower cubicle. Outside there is a garden shower, two barbeques (gas and charcoal), washing machine and plenty of deck chairs and recliners.
We stay in Hodilje, in a separate house where we can offer you a safe parking place during your stay. Hodilje has no shops but it has a friendly local taverna that also can be easily reached by boat. Ston has a daily market selling fruit, vegetables and other regional produce, plus 2 supermarkets, a wine shop, pharmacy, hospital, police station, post office, bank, bakery and many cafes and restaurants. When you arrive, we will carry you and your luggage to the villa by boat. The journey takes about 5 minutes. , ...
There are 3 bedrooms: two double with French beds and one with 2 double twin beds. Maximum for 8 people, but we recommend 6 adults, or 4 adults and 4 children.
