Reviews of this property
Last year we spent two weeks in Captains House in Podgora.
It was all very nice!
First of all Captains House itself is a charming place with plenty of space
for a family like ours with two adults and two kids, (there are three bedrooms).
The house is situated close to the beach, nice restaurants and also the main walking street but still it is a quiet and tranquil house to live in.
The restaurant has amazing seafood dishes (the best you can get I guess), the sea was very blue and there was always space for you on the beach. What more can you ask for?
I also would like to give a special thanks to Mateo who personally took me and my eleven year old son on a special guiding trip in his rowboat.
Many thanks to you Dianà and Mateo for your service and welcoming!
Tommy Borg with family.
