My husband’s family roots are on Olib. This home was a very nice and comfortable for our family gathering. It is without a doubt the nicest home on the island. Tom did a great job building and furnishing this lovely home on Olib.

Villa Lavanda is a lovely and unique place to stay, not least due to its location on Olib which retains all the peace and charm of traditional island life - something which we found difficult to find in Croatia during peak season. The house is beautifully designed and really well…

Thank you Benedicte! We are so glad you had a great time here. We even fixed the wifi now. During a lightning storm the router was completely reset and we had to configure it once again. Thanks for understanding that it could not be done remotely while you were here. All the best for you and your family.

Response from Tom:
Thank you for your feedback, Stephanie. I am very sorry the Wifi wasn't working and could not be fixed locally, as it apparently is a phone company problem. About the laundry to clarify: we have a 10 night but not a 14 night rule. And it is not related to the cost of water or power - we'd be happy to pay for that to have happy guests - but water has to be collected from our roof drop by drop during winter - all houses on Olib work that way - again it's not related with the accommodation cost. To ensure that all guests (from May to October) have enough water to take a shower, we need to limit the use of the laundry machine. That is also stated in our house rules here on Airbnb. I know you were traveling around before you arrived and probably had clothes to wash. You could have asked us for an exception which we do have granted before. Thanks again for this feedback. It's important for us to know about all this in order to be able to improve.
