Malo Blue is a spacious, unique, architect designed villa with panoramic sea views over the Adriatic to the island of Brač. As Malo Blue is a villa and not inter-connecting apartments it offers a spacious kitchen and communal areas which is more than enough for groups of up to 8 people. The villa is surrounded by a large garden which offers privacy and space. The villa has beds for 6 guests, however it can accommodate up to 8 people with high quality camp beds available and sufficient space in all the bedrooms to accommodate them..
Malo Blue was originally designed and build in the 1970's. It is one of a kind. Commissioned by a Macedonian sweet manufacturer it was the first commission for a recently qualified architect from Sarajevo who went on to be a well know architect in Split responsible for the design of many public buildings. It offers stylish and spacious open plan living, with areas where guests can find privacy. All rooms with the exception of the bathrooms have sea views.
Situated on a private leafy path, the villa is just 30 metres down some steep steps to the secluded Tice beach. A further 5 minutes’ walk along the beach brings you to the main Stanici beach with a beach bar, restaurant, boat trips, skidoo hire and inflatable rides. There are no roads to cross to reach the beaches.
Malo Blue has a distinctive, well-lit entrance corridor which offers great space to leave beach paraphernalia and offers privacy. It leads to a wide front door which opens onto a spacious hall with fitted cupboard, bookcase and console table. The hall opens onto the light and spacious kitchen area to the right. Here the ceiling rises to the full height of the villa. A gallery landing looks down onto the dining area and the large table seating up to 8. The kitchen window runs from floor to ceiling flooding the room with light and offering a view of the BBQ, terrace and sea beyond.
The kitchen is well equipped with an oven, hob, large fridge with freezer (there is a further fridge in the room under the terrace) dishwasher and microwave.
A chimney breast partly divides the kitchen area from the sitting area. Three wide wooden steps on the left of the chimney breast lead to the sitting room. At one end there is a brick open fireplace and at the other end French windows lead onto the large dining terrace. The living area houses a large L-shaped sofa, a two-seater sofa, stool, coffee table and TV and DVD.
Off the hall is a double bedroom with king size bed, fitted wardrobes, sea views and French windows leading onto the dining terrace. The ceiling rises from normal height by the French windows to almost full building height at the other end of the room.
There are two further bedrooms, both of which are twin rooms. They are both identical in size and layout with fitted wardrobes, sea views and access onto a terrace or balcony. Both rooms are spacious enough for a camp bed or cot in addition to the twin beds. The twin room on the ground floor leads off the hall and has a French window which accesses the terrace to the side of the house by the BBQ.
A large shower room is to the left of the front door. Both shower rooms have good water pressure, an independent water heater, a wall heater, loo basin, bidet, cupboard and a window.
A wide spiral staircase leads to a spacious first floor landing which has a fitted cupboard, book shelves and a semi-circular gallery which looks over the dining area. Off the landing is the second shower room. It is identical to the one on the ground floor but for the inclusion of a washing machine. Next to the shower room on the landing there is a glazed French window to a part covered terrace which is good for drying beach clothes, towels etc. or just taking some time out.to read a book and look at the sea
The second twin room is opposite the shower room and has a French window which opens onto a small balcony with views up and down the bay.
The terrace has a sail shade canopy and bougainvillea and runs the full length of the villa and round to the kitchen and BBQ. The terrace houses a large wicker dining table and chairs, a smaller sun-downer table with chairs and a wooden table and chairs by the BBQ as well as sun loungers. Steps by the BBQ lead down to a shady covered area under the terrace and a room where beach toys, extra chairs and suitcases can be stored.
There are a couple of undercover parking spaces off the road at the back of the garden. The villa can be approached through the garden from the parking spaces or through a gate off the path to the beach. A wrought iron fence runs around the garden.
Stanici is a small former fishing village which lies 3 km south of Omis and 55 km south of Split. It is a quiet family beach resort. Stanici is well placed to visit what the Dalmatian coast has to offer. The village itself has two well-stocked grocery stores 100 m from the villa where fresh bread is delivered daily and which are open year around as is the bar/cafe. There are a number of restaurants and places doing homemade pizza to eat in or take-away. All are easy walking distance. There is a restaurant on the beach. The restaurants are not open all year round, however there are places in Omis and a few kilometres further down which are.
Omis is our nearest town. it's an historic beach town on the magnificent Cetina river and gorge. There is a castle, beach with windsurfing school, tennis courts, fish market and pedestrianised squares with restaurants, bars and shops as well as supermarkets and banks.
