What a beautiful stay! We had a wonderful time at Ivan's apartment! Soline is one of the most beautiful locations I have seen. The view from the apartment and balcony is stunning!
I think the location is probably the best on the Island - more peaceful and remote than Pomena or Polace and Solinski channel seemed to be the best location for snorkelling.
Ivan and his family were very welcoming. His father kindly picked us up&dropped is off to the port. They also arranged for us to hire bicycles. The baked fish in their restaurant was the best I tasted in Croatia. There are 3-4 small restaraunts by the apartment where you can get lunch/dinner/a drink. The majority of the menus is fish, so if you don't eat fish, or you would like some fruit/snacks/breakfast food - it may be best to get these in Pomena/Polace before transferring to Soline - otherwise you can get a taxi organised to Pomena by Hotel Odisej for around 100khuna (currently ~£10).
The apartment can get very warm- we had a fan & kept the Windows/shutters closed during the hottest part of the day - I think if we were there in July/August we would have needed a room with air conditioning (I think this is available).
Wonderful stay! Loved the butterfly filled lavender bushes. Thank you Ivan, Nikolas & family!
