“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed 10 December 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Nothing was left unthought of for a stay in a town I can't wait to return to. Not only are there too many amenities to list, the thoroughness describing all there is available, both within the apartment and around the town, was a great comfort. It was truly the highlight stay of our 2-week trip.

“A vibrant location and warm and attentive hosts.”
Reviewed 4 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

An excellent service from Zeljka and her father Zeljko - prompt, courteous emails throughout the booking process; a personal guide to the apartment on our midnight arrival (when the rental cars SAT NAV failed); hot snacks and chocolates waiting for us after a long day travelling and finally, a wealth of information and details about the surrounding areas from Zeljko.

The apartment was clean, spacious and airy. Located by the busy market, it was surprisingly quiet when the windows were shut and, despite the very hot weather, cool when the air-con was on. Excellent value for money and ideal for two couples or older family wanting a central location.

The local restaurants, recommended by our hosts and previous visitors, were excellent value, catering for all tastes and budgets. The beautiful Golden Cape Forest Park was only a 15 minute walk away (or 5 minute cycle ride - bikes were plentiful and cheap to hire for a day) and the beaches large enough to accommodate everyone during the peak holiday season.

All in all, a beautiful location in Rovinj Old Town.

“Warm Hospitality and Old World Rovinj Charm”
Reviewed 2 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Casa Bella is a perfect accommodation for couples or families looking to take in the Old Town of Rovinj while being treated as if staying with family. My wife and I settled in Casa Bella for 4 nights in May 2015, and we found it to be the perfect accommodation for our tastes. It should be prefaced, if the pictures do not relay it, that Casa Bella certainly is not for those desiring modern décor or hotel-like amenities. There are plenty of ritzy (and expensive) hotels slightly removed from Rovinj’s Old Town, but for a more modest, cozy, and “authentic” Rovinj experience, Casa Bella plays the part wonderfully.

That is not to say that the apartment is not without convenience and good amenities, however. We found the apartment to be well-equipped with all the appliances and features to make staying there practical for a short stint or a long duration (weeks/months). There is everything you need to feel at home (washer, fridge, cooking supplies, A/C, fans, TV etc.). The apartment itself is situated within a 200+ year old building (if I heard correctly), so naturally certain aspects feel “old,” but mostly in a charming way. For instance, it was a joy each morning opening the shutters by reaching out the window to rotate them aside, taking in the beautiful ocean views and the bustling sounds of the market below. On that note, it should be mentioned that a more modern refurbishment is the presence of sound resistant dual-paned windows (great for keeping the place quiet and tranquil if the commotion outside is too much). The bed was cozy, shower/tub easy to use, and the living room and dining room area were perfect to use for morning breakfast and night-time unwinding. The apartment itself is very large, and would easily accommodate a party of 4 comfortably (just be a little conservative with hot water use in the shower!).

There are two incredible features about the apartment which should justify any reservation. The first is its location in Rovinj. You simply cannot beat being so near to all the sites, restaurants, and shopping in Old Town! It was always a joy to stroll out in the morning, walk a few steps to a bakery, and get a morning pastry and espresso. We could easily hike around town, visit some sites, have lunch, and return to the apartment to relax for an hour or two before heading out again. The location is perfect!

The second, and perhaps most important perk of the apartment, is the hospitality from both Zeljka and her father. During our stay, Zeljka’s father helped get us oriented to the apartment and town, and was always a call away if we needed anything (via a cell phone with Zeljka’s number provided with the apartment). While the only thing we needed during our stay was a pair of umbrellas, it was comforting knowing that assistance could be easily reached and addressed within a short time of a phone call if needed. Beyond this wonderful attention to service, the thing we fell most in love with was the feeling of being treated as if family. Zeljka and her father are incredibly warm and welcoming, which just adds to the sense of comfort and accommodation that Casa Bella offers.

If (and hopefully more like ‘when’) we return to Rovinj in the future, we will definitely look up and stay at Casa Bella again. From the location, to the service, to the general coziness of the apartment, we definitely felt it was the right place for our stay to fully enjoy our time in Rovinj.

Thank you so much for taking time to describe your time at Casa Bella! It is a great pleasure to hear you have enjoyed your stay! As you have pointed out, it is our aim to provide our guests with all amenities they could possibly wish to have in a central apartment and still, keep the traditional Rovinian style so that our guests get the feel of true Rovinj as you did!

We try our best to make our guests feel as if they are at home and are truly glad that you felt welcome and had a pleasant and relaxing stay.

It will be a great pleasure to welcome you back at Casa Bella!

“Beautiful apartment in the heart of Rovinj”
Reviewed 5 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Casa Bella was the perfect apartment to stay in while in Rovinj. It is in the heart of the Old Town with access to the market (right below), restaurants, shops (including a supermarket 1/2 block away) and sightseeing.
Our hosts were amazingly gracious and helpful and the apartment itself is very clean and updated. It has fantastic natural light, a great common area to hang out, fully stocked kitchen and even has a clothes washing machine.
We highly recommend staying at Casa Bella and will do so next time back in the Istria peninsula!

“Relaxing Picture perfect stay in beautiful Rovinj”
Reviewed 12 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We loved our three day stay at Casa Bella so much we hope to return for a longer stay!The apartment is lovely and spacious in a perfect location overlooking the sea. Zeljka and her father, Zelko were the perfect hosts and have thought of everything to make their guests comfortable. We enjoyed walking the streets of old Rovinj, the green market, the art galleries, and of course the lovely cafes. The hosts provide a cell phone so they are only a call away to answer a question. Zelko's suggestions for restaurants were fabulous! From this location it is easy to take day trips to the hill towns or Trieste! Like similar apartments in Venice, there are narrow stairs to climb with luggage, but Zelko was always there to help at our arrival and departure!l We loved our stay and can't imagine more gracious hosts!

Thank you very much for your time to remind yourselves of your stay in Rovinj and to share it on TripAdvisor, it is mine and my family's great pleasure to hear that you have enjoyed your stay very much! It is interesting that Rovinj reminded you of Venice, and indeed the two have many similarities - narrow cobbled streets, old palaces, narrow houses, cafes, even a similar dialect spoken by the locals! Casa Bella is a perfect spot if you want to get a feeling of that kind of Rovinj, original and by all means unspoiled. I will be happy to welcome you again, and you are right, there is no way you will be allowed to take your luggage on your own upon arrival. Best regards from Despot family and we hope to meet you soon again!
