Over 200 years old yet fully renovated, Villa Riba is located right off the famous Riva boardwalk in the old town of the old fishing village of Supetar on the island of Brac. This villa, with a garden of lemon and fig trees, is a haven of peace.
Our home is different from anything else listed. A former monastery dating from the 18th century, Villa Riba ('fish' in Croatian) is fully renovated. A few years ago we took the roof off, the floors out, reinforced the stone walls and rebuilt new, everything new, from within. Spread over three floors, with three bedrooms each with en suite bathrooms and family rooms upstairs and down, our home is the place to spend a relaxing vacation with friends and family.
Only meters from either the beach or the harbor, and a short distance from ferries arriving hourly from Split, Villa Riba is well located for a summer holiday. It is surrounded by a stone wall, giving it a feeling of isolation and peace, yet the shops and restaurants of the village are just around the corner.
Come and stay for a week or the summer season. However long you stay, we hope you will be coming back again shortly.
Accès des voyageurs
The house is yours - bedrooms, garden, kitchen. Enjoy the Jacuzzi in the master bedroom. There are lots of DVDs downstairs and a few old VCD tapes upstairs, both cable and satellite access, and while we don't offer Internet, it is because for ten euro you can get high speed 3G wifi access from the kiosk at the harbor for your phone or device. Feel like gardening - roll up your sleeves and help keep ours looking good. Pick our fruit when ripe. Cook up a storm in our fully equipped kitchen. Drink our wine then replace it, and read our books, take one, leave one.

We have a manager on the island who will be available at all times, in case of emergency or problems. I will also be available by phone or email, and eager to help, should you need help. Or even if you just have questions.
While we live in Thailand, this is our home. A lovely home. We hope you enjoy it, take care of it like it is yours (as it will be for the week) and come back again next year.
Villa Riba is not for parties, but for small groups or families looking to enjoy the relaxation, beach and all that Brac and Croatia has to offer in its lovely summertime. Maximum ten people, unless I confirm a larger number. As people live in close proximity in the old town, we would hope you respect them, keeping noise down, particularly early in the morn and late at night.
My wife Ivanka and I both work for the United Nations, in my case for over 20 years. This has allowed me to travel a LOT - all over Asia and Africa. We have four boys, all extremely well traveled themselves. As you can imagine, we like AirBnB for finding places where we can rest after long days of exploring, apartments and homes that have the space and amenities that suit a family like ours.
