VILLA GODI STAR – TURQUOISE – SUMARTIN BAY, BRAC ISLAND
Villa Godi Star is situated in a gorgeous & peaceful spot, just 30 metres from the sea, on the edge of pretty Sumartin Bay.
Recommended in the Mail on Sunday – “Archers actress Amy Shindler soaks up the sun in Croatia”
Previously known as Villa Turquoise, the villa owner has recently changed the name back to its original and more sentimental family name of Villa Godi Star. It is a true luxury villa with concierge services from boat trips to your own chef for the night, nothing is too much trouble – it gets the best reviews from our customers.
With great views of the Dalmatian coast, the Island of Hvar and the Makarska Riviera from the balconies and sumptuous pool, it’s the perfect place to relax or to work off some of your energy on the stepper machine or treadmill! The little pebbly beach along with pretty little sunbathing platforms and rocks to dive into the sea from are easily reachable down steep steps but if all that sounds too much like hard work then just lounge around the pool!
The villa is approximately 20 minutes walk from the village of Sumartin – guests are welcome to use the villa bikes to get around! The sea side town of Bol, famous for its sensational, long beach is close by and a must-see… The villa host also offers superb boat trips to Hvar Island and Town and to some top spots around the islands, with lunch – definitely recommended. Or, Makarska on the mainland is easily accessible in around 45 minutes on the ferry and makes for a good day trip, or why not hire a car and explore the island itself?
This luxury villa with concierge service is the perfect place to experience uncomplicated Croatia. Fantastic home cooking and Croatian Evenings are on offer to sample some local fare – the villa owner’s traditional Croatian cooking is very popular with guests who often say they prefer to eat at the villa rather than at local restaurants – the guest book is filled with praise for the superb local and traditional specialities served up at your request…the cooking here really is something – it’s extremely good (breakfast and other meals are available and can be arranged at the villa – see below). If you’d rather completely self-cater then the villa has a stunning pool-side living area complete with summer kitchen, traditional Croatian BBQ fireplace, living and dining area.
Wonderful Concierge Service Nothing is too much trouble at this luxury villa with concierge service! If you’d like a bit of insider knowledge, a transfer here, a speedboat hop there, to know where the best places to visit on the island are, perhaps some grocery shopping, a car for the week, the villa owner is at your disposal to help, suggest or arrange for you to be taken somewhere special.

The Bay & Beach Below

Great Home Cooking & Catering at the Villa
We’d recommend you try the delicious, traditional Croatian home cooking at Villa Godi Star. The pool side setting with the open fire, flickering its reflection on the pool of an evening and washing down fabulous Croatian specialities with superb Croatian wine from nearby vineyards, is one of the many highlights guests here rave about. Well worth taking up on this offer… Please note: Catering at the villa is supplied by the villa owner and is bookable directly with the villa owner on your arrival at extra cost.

Explore Bol & the Surrounding Coastline
Climb (or be taken!) to the top of Vidova Gora – the island’s highest peak which has a fabulous view of Zlatni Rat Beach in Bol Town.
What a wonderful place Villa Godi Star is.
The host Stanko couldn’t be more helpful. On call any time of the day.
Even picked us up from the wedding reception early hours of the morning from Bol, Mali Raj restaurant to takes us all home.
The Mali Raj is a fabulous restaurant in a beautiful setting under olive trees. It’s a must if visiting Bol.
Stanko and his girlfriend made us lovely breakfasts every morning, creamy scrambled eggs and fresh pancakes were the favourites. Freshly ground coffee on tap all day.
There are two good beach bars open till late, both selling hot snacks. One has more food options of pizzas and other dishes. All freshly made.
There’s a very good restaurant worth a visit above the beach bars. Some really good Croatian food and wine. Unfortunately, I don’t know the names of them but I’m sure Stanko will tell you. They were all walking distance from the villa in Selca.
The supermarket in Sumartin which you can cycle to or ask Stanko to take you to for all your food and drink supplies.
Some traditional Croatian food restaurants here too.
In all though we had a fabulous time and would recommend to anyone.
Thank you for your wonderful service too. I would not hesitate to use Croatia Gems again.
We’ll be back to Croatia for sure, we just love it.

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, work has been crazy since my return! Holidays seem ages ago now!
We had a really wonderful time in Croatia and both villas were gorgeous….
Villa Godi Star was perfect! Stanko was the most wonderful host and looked after us so brilliantly. His breakfasts were delicious and he sorted us out kayaks and boat trips and gave us lots of helpful restaurant suggestions. Our rooms were cleaned every day and it felt more like a hotel than a villa, we really enjoyed our stay here and hope to return!
Thank you for organising a great holiday for us.
Rachel M” July 2018
We had a really great week. The villa was lovely and the location, overlooking the little bay was everything we could have asked for.
What made the week was Stanko and the care and attention he gave to us. He made all the logistics seem easy and went out of his way to suggest and take us to several spots on the island and on other islands. He also suggested restaurants and again made all the arrangements. On the last evening he cooked a birthday dinner at the villa for my husband!
Thanks for your help in arranging this and your patience with us when we changed villa! We did not regret it!
Kate” August/Sept 2017
… we all had a really great holiday (despite my fall and cold !)
You worked so hard for us, and being chauffeured and advised on what to see and do, really contributed to the holiday. Many thanks again, particularly for the trouble you took on my birthday. Please also thank your girl friend, whose name I would give, if I could spell it!
Best wishes and kind regards,
Peter” August 2017
We had a fantastic holiday – many thanks! Regarding Villa Godi Star, Stanko was an absolute gem. He couldn’t have been more helpful, and really made an effort to ensure we had a great time. The birthday barbecue he prepared was excellent.
Already thinking of our next trip!

“I would just like to thank you in helping with the arrangements. The villa was beyond what I could have imagined or even wished for, such a perfect setting and a perfect weekend. The staff were the perfect hosts. I think we all wanted to marry him by the end of the weekend! They couldn’t do enough for us and the restaurants they recommended we out of this world! The boat trip is a definite MUST!!! Seeing Dolphins on the return to the villa were the icing on the cake.” Layla May/June 2015
“Our time at the villa was INCREDIBLE!! We cannot say enough positive things about it. The location, views, property was more then we expected. It was perfect! We were treated like a VIP all the way. From the boat ride to Hvar to all the VIP booths he has waiting for us at the bars we went to and the delicious dinners at the villa, the hospitality was A++. We miss the villa a lot and can’t wait to go back. Thank you so much for arranging.. A Saulewicz” Aug 2014

The villa and surroundings are also fantastic. Thank you for a holiday we will never forget” Liz Stott 2014
“To echo the previous 2 comments, an absolutely unforgettable holiday.

A holiday, villa and experience to live with us all forever” Andy Pendlebury 2014
