The space

Story of a house on the top of the village
(Kod Šimnića u vrh sela = Croatian original name of the estate)

The estate where the Stone Barn is located in a peaceful part of a once-traditional farmer village of Gabonjin. Your handcrafted two story getaway lives and breathes the tradition of islanders, but we also kept the expectations of modern day travellers in mind.

Welcome package
Upon arrival, you will receive a package of selected tastes that will take you on a small culinary experience. Freshly picked herbs cover the famous island's goat cheese, topped with a few fresh figs from the backyard with a (mandatory) glass of champagne.

With it's setup the Barn is ideal for pretty much everyone: couples needing a break from their everyday bustle, families who need space for kids, even travelers with pets.

The open floor plan on the interior lets the house breathe, and also hints at the energy that will be felt throughout your stay. Interior design is a combination of the islands traditional architecture and heritage, combined with a fresh and open Provanse style architecture.

You'll be having your breakfast and evening cocktail on a very special stone patio. "Gumno" (threshing floor) is a circular flattened plateau surrounded by a low stone wall, and it was used for threshing the grains. It was transformed into a patio overlooking some meadows, where you're more likely than not to see a deer grazing the lawn minding its own business.
On the back of the house is a natural (but professional level) exterior grill. We'll be happy to point you to our local fisherman who will bring some fresh fish for that evening meal.

There is also a lot of space on the estate. Kids can run around (there's a stone fence surrounding it), and you can even bring your pet with you if you like.

Guest access

You'll have access to the Stone Barn, it's patio, the grill.
There are two bicicles on the estate that you can use free of charge.

On weekdays it's also possible to arrange to hire a 50cc scooter for easier access to the beach.

Interaction with guests

You will receive a wealth of information from us. We love to chat, but if you don't you'll be able to read through then too.
We speak all local languages + English, bits of German and Italian.

The neighbourhood

The estate is located in a quiet part of the village, just a stone throw away from the village center though. The neighborhood is very quiet and tranquil, and the estate directly borders only on one estate with a residential hous on it (not even in view from the Stone Barn where you will be staying).

Getting around

The village of Gabonjin has a small local shop for necessities.
You can use the two bikes at no cost to explore the surroundings. There is an abundance of hiking trails, including the lovely church of St. Peter which offers some fine view of Kvarner.
The nearest town is Malinska (4km) where some of the most pristine beached of the island lay.
The Rijeka airport is conveniently located on the island and only 16 km (10 miles) away from your locaiton. Airport pickup is available upon request.

Hermina and her husband are wonderful hosts. We enjoyed every single day! The barn ist restored with a lot of love for details and they made it a little magic place. We will come back for shure! The little town in in the middle of the island - so a car/bike/motorbike is kind of essential. But this is anyhow the best way to discover the secrets of Krk. The small supermarket for buying the basic needs is in walking distance.
