No music outdoors after 11pm.
This is a residential area, please be considerate
Always shower before using the pool!
If there is no sunscreen and sweat in the water,
we need less chlorine, which is not only good
for our pool but also for your skin.
No jumping in the pool!
If the water-level in the pool is below the skimmer (because of intense heat or because someone did jump), please refill pool with garden hose or call us.
You might be visited by stray cats. Locals are animal lovers and leave food for them. So cats are not afraid of humans and tend to come into the house to look for goodies. Please, do not feed them and close the terrace door to avoid locking them in
It is an unwritten rule among our neighbors that guests of Villa Ventana use the parking space in front of the entrance gate. Other parking is reserved for the neighbors
When you leave the house, make sure to close all doors and windows. Croatia is generally a very safe and peaceful country. But still: opportunity makes the thief
Please turn off AC when not in the room. When turned on, they take a while to start working.
No candles / open fire in or outside the house.
The countertop in the kitchen is made of marble. Marble is a soft stone and sensitive to acid. Please don’t leave citrus fruit face down on the counter and if you spill wine / vinegar / fruit juice, please clean up right away. Thank you!
Find the grill behind the house and please put it back there in the shade after using.
