Enjoy having breakfast or dinner on the cozy terrace surrounded by nature. This house is part of a vast property only 5' away from the city center and all other major attractions. It is ideal for families, friends or groups and a wonderful home base to chill but also to discover the coastline, cities and the countryside.
LARGE FREE PARKING AREA ON PREMISES can accomodate several vehicles and even small trailers with boats.
It is equipped with a centralised HEATING SYSTEM

The space

The whole house is immersed in nature, surrounded by a large garden. You might feel of being in an "urban countryside" and you can easily reach the city center or the coastline in all directions.
The apartment measures (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)), it's on the first floor of the standalone house. It was NEWLY RENOVATED in July 2017 in a discrete yet stylish way. The rooms are very bright and spacious yet cosy and intimate.
The garden around is huge and if you have kids you can safely let them play and go around.
Cyclists are minutes away from trails and scenic roads.

Guest access

We will make you feel at home both in the apartment and in the big garden surrounding the property.
We also rent the smaller unit downstairs but given the abundance of space you will have no problem in sharing the parking or the garden if we host other guests.

Interaction with guests

We are not living onsite and our friend and co-host Sonja will be interacting with you personally. However, we will always be available on the phone too, because we want to make sure you have all you need to have a memorable stay.

Other things to note

We can offer you advice for best restaurants, products, beaches, sport and cultural activities.
On demand, we can book restaurants and organise airport transfers (fees to be agreed in advance).

Dinko and Pam's house was beyond perfect and we enjoyed our stay there more than ever. The apartment has lots of space and clean neutral furnishings. Also great for hosting friends. Arriving and leaving was super easy and Dinko was always available on the phone. We are looking forward to staying with them again to explore more of the beautiful area. Thanks for your hospitality!

The apartment is very spacious and in a quiet neighbourhood yet very close to the centre of Pula (3-5 minutes by car). Three big bedrooms and a big living room helped us to easily accommodate two couples with two small kids each. Communication was very fast, concise and friendly and the local contact, Sonja, very helpful and accessible. Very good tips for restaurants given as a list is definitely great to have :-) very good idea. We would go there again.

Apartment Norma is spatious and ideal for groups, we were 6 in 3 bedrooms and had plenty of privacy as well as shared space (lovely terrace for breakfasts or drinks). As it is situated in the vicinity of the city center, only 5 minutes car ride, it is perfect for those planning to visit the inland of the peninsula or towns on the western coastline. As we were the firstcomers of the season, apartment still had some external equipment missing but all the neccessary essentials (kitchenware, bed linen, etc) were fully covered. The hosts and their assistant were easy to communicate with, helpful with tips and prompt to respond.

Dinko & Pam User Profile

We are a married couple and are currently based in New Orleans, USA. Dinko is a Pula, Croatia native and lived in Italy for over 30 years. Pam is a native of New Orleans, USA. We met while we were both travelling in Laos.
We are both passionate about people, food, music, sports, photography and travel and love to share this with others. Some of our favorite travel destinations are India, Nepal, Southeast Asia, Italy, and Greece.

Casa Norma was named after Dinko's mom who was a talented artist. You will see some of her lovely work around the house and feel the serene energy that characterised her.

Because we are currently away from Pula, our good friend Sonja will host you and make you feel at home!

For us it is more than just about spaces, it is about PEOPLE.

Looking forward to having you as our guests!
