What Past Guests Are Saying
Family retreat on the most beautiful adriatic coast
My wife and I with our 2 daughters, our sons-in-law and our grand children, 2 boys of 2.5 and 5 years of age, occupied the whole rental space for 2 summer weeks. This villa (as the others on Ruzmarin road) is built of famous white stone from that island. Carefully designed, maintained with love and care by owners Dinko and Mary, few steps from the private beach, with beautiful view from terraces to Biokovo mountain and adriatic sea, it proved to be an excellent place to stay for our family. Spending time on the beach was very pleasant, with extremely clean water for swimming, and natural shade available under the trees. Going back and forth from the villa to the beach was needed because of the kids, and very easy. Spacious terrace of the villa was our favorite place for meals and late in the evening, where we were sitting together, eating fish or meat from the barbecue (which was located in nicely designed corner of the villa property), drinking great local red vine (Dinko's recommendation), talking until late and playing cards occasionally. We also rented a car (in Supetar, first ferry stop from Split) for the whole stay, and used it on daily basis. The closest villages, Sumartin and Selca, were nice to visit during the day, although they used to become pretty quiet later in the evening. Our hosts Dinko and Mary were great, extremely friendly and helpful throughout our stay, with outstanding personal charm and taste.
our best holiday
We love the villa, beautiful beach and sea. Dinko and Meri are fantastic hosts. I wish I could visit them again next sommer holiday.
My family and friends also love the place.

Far from the madding crowds!
If you like your own space which contains the clearest seawater you have ever seen stay at the Villa Punta Ruzmarin. Dinko and Meri are wonderful hosts and ensured that our family reunion was relaxing and that we had everything we needed including delicious homemade strudel! The swimming is superb and the view lovely. The villa is very well equipped and comfortable with air conditioning. The seafood restaurant Bilin within walking distance is excellent. We also had very good meals at the eco-agriculturo on the road to Supetar which promotes local fresh produce and traditional cooking. The island has plenty of places of interest and some lovely beaches. A trip on the ferry to Split was a highlight. I would thoroughly recommend this property.

Best holiday ever-beautiful sea and very,very friendly hosts!
This year we were on vacation at island Bra? in Villa Punta Ruzmarin.
Here is all very nice - the location is fantastic, the village is quiet, people are friendly, the beaches are clean of course the sea also. We were diving a lot- and we found a beautiful shell and seahorse.
They have private beach. If you go a little away from the private beach (50-100 meters), you can bi alone on the beach.
This is a really great place for rest and relaxation, try it-you will not regret.
We can't wait to return soon.
With best regards, Vesna & Mitja :)
fantastic, wonderful I recommend.
Very nice holiday for me and my family. Beautiful house, beach, see - all.
Best summer at island Bra?
If you want a summer vacation with a 5star sea side house, private beach and friendly owners you must see this location.In a group there was 6 of us and we will all remember this vacations as one of the best!

Sea is clear like a diamond! We have also caught octopus and many fishes!(Largest was fish snake named Ugor...Size almoust 1meter.
We already decidet that next summer we will stay in this house 14day because our 7day this year in this seaside haven is not enouh.
Villa Punta Ruzmarin- The Medeterainian Island Retreat
My wife and I stayed in the Villa Punta Ruzmarin upstairs suite in the summer of 2005 just after an early renovation. -The location was fantastic (on the water with a semi-private beach, but too far from the town and local restaurants).
-The color of the adriatic doesn't look any bluer than when looking at it from the Ruzmarin balcony.
-The amenities are great, and that was before the latest renovation.
My wife and I can't wait to return!
Incredible villa on a beautiful island
Upon arriving at Villa Punta Ruzmarin, my traveling companions & I were greeted warmly. Every effort was made to ensure that all of our needs were met, and that we were enjoying our stay.
The property is clean & extremely well kept, with. Plenty of parking available. It's right on the shoreline, so it's only a few steps to the beach. Which is pristine and quiet, with plenty of room for sunbathing or to have a small picnic. The nearby town has a visitors center, grocery store, numerous restaurants, and offered us many things to see and do during our stay on Brac.
We absolutely loved Villa Punta Ruzmarin, would definitely recommend staying here.
Beach Front Brac Stone Villa
Island of Brac is definitely a must see along the Croatian coast. What better place to stay than Villa Punta - Ruzmarin. This property is beach front with easy beach access to some of the cleanes sea water in the world! You will enjoy nice views from your terrace when staying here. The owners are very generous and nice people. The entire property is extremely well maintained and is spottless. It comes with all amenities needed for a condo style beach vacation. What I loved a lot was having dinner on a terrace with ocean view.
The beach is shared by local families and that adds a unique and special touch to staying here. That being said it is also a very private beach with high chance of maybe just you and 4-5 other people being there at same time.
Having a car on an island definitely helps and most people in Europe trave via one but this is not essential. Locals are very friendly and I have gotten rides from complete strangers. Remember this is a small community and everybody knows everybody.
Great place to relax and recharge in nature! This place is built from traditional Brac Stone which is world famous and parts of White House in Washington D.C. is made from same material
Heaven on Mediterrane
Novo mesto, Slovenia EU
Heaven on Metiterrane
High standard house on coast with own large garden and swimming beach, located 2 km away from small town. Unlikely clean sea, absolutely sweet air. Isle Brac have a lot of historicaly interesting places from Greek - Roman empire period. Higly recommaning to visit a top ov Vidova mountain with extraordinary view on islands of the east adriatic. Domestic people are kindly and most of them speak english language.
The most relaxing vacation by the sea
My family and I had a great time during our stay at Villa Puna Ruzmarin last summer. It was the perfect location for us, as we had access to the beach all day long. It is in a calm bay, so it was always perfect for swimming. We could leave our stuff at the beach, and come and go as we wished, since it was steps away. The owners were hospitable, friendly, and so welcoming. It was a pleasure to stay there and I will definitely be coming back with my family again.
Our favorite part was coming back from the beach in the early evening and making dinner for my family to enjoy on the terrace. The apartment was spacious, very clean, and very nicely decorated - very comfortable for everyone.
Overall, our stay was amazing. We loved that it was private, quiet, yet close enough to grocery and restaurants, making it very convenient. The environment is welcoming and the kids loved to snorkel right in front of the house, or just swim across the bay.
It was the perfect place to relax, enjoy the sun, and the sea!
