Tom's house is really wonderful, it is fully equipped with all what you need and even more (everything for the beach, cookware). Everything's very well organised. You receive from Tom all the relevant information needed to arrive to the island and for your stay. The location is perfect and it was a pleasure to enjoy the terrace to watch the boats. The life on Olib is an experience we will not forget, you are rapidly disconnected. We all learned to be more thrifty with water and to enjoy every single moment.

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.

Olib is such a special Island! A place where you disconnect and appreciate the beauty and quiet of the natural surroundings! Villa Lavanda is the perfection location to enjoy everything! Overlooking the Mule (harbor) with a great deck for lounging and a wonderful walk to the beach! We loved our stay and will definitively be back. Next time I hope the wifi is working, although it was nice to not be able to check email, etc. And it was unfortunate to find out on arrival that you can't do a load of laundry unless you're staying 2 weeks. We assumed we'd be able to do a load because we were staying a week and it is the most expensive property on the Island. Otherwise, a great vacation!

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.

Olib is a place for those who are looking for something different, away from hotels, cars, crowds etc. The life on a small island for from the land includes also elements which are unevitable such as e.g.limitef water sources or limited supplies of food. If you are looking for a small island vacation, the stay in Tom´ s is a good choice. The house itself is beautiful, very spacious and comfortable

Villa Lavanda is really the Place To be! Dans la maison de Tom, on a le sentiment d’habiter dans les pages d’un magazine de décoration et sur la terrasse, de faire partie d’une carte postale. On atteint réellement la perfection. Tous les matériaux, les meubles, les objets ont été choisis avec beaucoup de goût et la maison est parfaitement équipée. Toutes les portes et fenêtres sont munies de moustiquaires très faciles d’utilisation et très efficaces. Si on fait attention à ne pas ouvrir certains volets, la maison reste fraîche. En plein mois d’août, nous n’avons pas mis la climatisation pour dormir. Les chambres sont spacieuses et tous les sanitaires très agréables. La cuisine est parfaitement équipée, on se croirait à la maison et pas dans un bien loué. La terrasse donne sur le port et la mer, la vue est magnifique. On y vit au rythme des bateaux qui arrivent et quittent Olib. Le jardin est arboré et également très plaisant. La villa fonctionne à l’eau de pluie qu’il faut économiser pour qu’il y ait de l’eau jusqu’à la fin de la saison sèche. L’eau n’est pas potable mais on achète sur lîle des grosses bouteilles de 7 litres pour seulement 1€. Quelques mot sur Olib, petite île piétonne oubliée des guides de voyage. On est loin de l’agitation qui règne sur la côte adriatique. C’est un véritable cadeau dans nos vies agitées de passer ses vacances à Olib. Ce changement de rythme est bénéfique, on sent vraiment le stress diminuer. Calme et paisible ne signifient pas morne et endormi. Il y a de l’ambiance dans les quelques restaurants d’Olib ouverts en saison et dans le coeur du village. Les familles des habitants viennent passer leurs vacances et quelques plaisanciers y accostent avec leur voilier ou yacht. On fait des petites courses dans les 2 épiceries de l’île et chez une dame qui vend les légumes de son jardin. Tom explique très bien ce qu’on trouvera sur Olib et ce qu’il faut emporter ainsi que les différentes possibilités de rejoindre Olib. La communication avec lui est optimale et tous les documents fournis sont précieux et très clairs. Nous avons séjourné 11 jours à la Villa Lavanda (2 parents et 4 ados) et nous ne pouvons que vous encourager à faire de même! Thank you so much Tom & Ulli.
