Why Steve Woods chose Borik
We had outgrown our little apartment in the center of Rovinj and were looking for something spacious and bright and away from the center of the town. We were looking for somewhere more spacious and quiet but with amenities close by. This apartment was unfurnished which was ideal as we could put our own stamp on it to make it our home. Borik, we knew, is a very popular and sought after area and this apartment just fitted nearly every requirement we had. With a few adjustments to the upstairs and after choosing the kitchen, the upstairs bathroom and furniture we were ready to move in. We are very happy with our Rovinj home and are ready to share it with others.
What makes this Apartment unique
This area is so nice and near enough to Rovinj for convenient shopping and social trips to see friends. The apartment itself is lovely and bright and away from the hustle of the city. The extra space that it gives us means that we feel much more at home because we have a full kitchen and all the comforts you would need to live very well. Parking space is also very welcome for us because when we lived in the city not being able to drive in the city was sometimes really an inconvenience. Now we feel like we really do have the best of both worlds; a great apartment in a lovely area and all the benefits of the city just 5 minutes drive away. If we are feeling energetic it is an easy bike ride away. All year long, a bus service runs from the end of the road from next to the Konzum supermarket into the centre of town. The local supermarket is such a great convenience. Being part of the Konzum chain means that the prices are just about the same great rate that you get in the big hypermarkets and the cash machine attached is great for when you need to go out. Two great restaurants (Blu and Konoba Storija) are open during the main season so if we feel like eating out we are sure that we can get a great meal in beautiful locations on the waterfront. Konoba Storija is the sister restaurant to Lovor which serves great food. The Rovinj Beach Bar is also a lovely location to get a cocktail in the evening or food and drinks down be the waterfront during the day. The apartment is also half way between the City and the very popular Monsena Beach area. Monsena has access to the naturist bathing area which is very popular in Croatia. The local beach which is shown in the pictures is great for families. The beach is shingle and has shallow entry to the water with trees lining the shore for shade.

Beautiful, immaculate apartment in a fantastic location
The location and apartment was perfect, we had no need to venture far as everything was on the doorstep.
We are a family of 5 and had ample room. The owner was so accommodating when I needed to change my booking.
My only complaint was we wish we had stayed longer.
We definitely will come back.
Stylish and well equipped apartment in quiet residential area close to old town Rovinj
Spotlessly clean and well equipped, with garage parking. Well positioned to easily get to the sea, cycle paths, harbour and old town. Highly recommend if you wish to explore the beautiful Istrian peninsula
Lovely, modern apartment.
The apartment is bright and modern. Everything was spotless and the air conditioning and wi-fi worked well in all rooms. The area is quiet and residential. We used the apartment as a base to explore the coast up as far as Trieste and it was perfect for these day trips. We found the garage awkward to get out of so we just parked in the spaces opposite the apartment, not a problem. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.
Wonderful apartment, great place to visit
We stayed in Rovinj for 2 weeks in August - fantastic time had by all. The city is beautiful, within walking distance and in a prime location vis-a-vis all the other spots worth a visit (Island's off Rovinj - great kayak safari - Pula, Porec, Motivan, Brijuni Islands and Fazana) . In addition their are several great restaurants and a supermarket a stone's throw from the apartment. Croatian people in Istria could not have been nicer, and the apartment has all mod-cons for great end of day relaxation.
Thank you for taking the time to write an unsolicited review. These kind words reflect our feelings about our Croatian home and the reasons we chose to live in this area.
We want to share our Croatian home with others so that you can have the same great experience as this guest and that we have when we stay. It is close enough to the centre of Rovinj so you can enjoy all the amenities without the noise and bustle of the town.
There are great opportunities close by, as this guest has found, including the family friendly beach (300m from the front door), some lovely restaurants and great activities and excursions, so you can have as active or relaxing a holiday that you wish. With free parking in the secure garage then discovering Istria and beyond becomes an easy possibility.
We look forward to welcoming returning guests and new guests to our home in the future.
Wonderful quite vacation home.
The apartment was a pleasant place to stay as we enjoyed a nice relaxing vacation right by Rovinj. Steve was incredibly helpful and the local travel agent was friendly and provided us with all appropriate information needed for our stay.
The area around the apartment is nice and quite, but Rovinj itself is very active and we always had something to do or see when weren't chilling on the beach. The beach was very nice with calm, clear water and the weather was good and warm, it was wonderful to sit back relax and get a tan next to the sound of waves. Since it was only 5 minute walk away, we spent nearly everyday there, before driving into Rovinj or one of the other adjacent towns to eat dinner at one of the many great restaurants.
The apartment was very nice and clean. All the appliances worked and were in best conditions. The internet connection was fast and Steve also provided a welcome folder with plenty of info about were to eat and what to do. We highly recommend this apartment!
This property is in the residential area of Borik, Rovinj. This property is ideally situated for exploring Rovinj and the rest of Istria. There is a local bus to the city or a drive of less than 5 minutes or an easy 30 minute stroll takes you to the heart of Rovinj. This enclave is one of the best, if not the best, residential areas of Rovinj.
There is regular sight seeing to the Lim Fjord, Brijunian Islands (President Tito's residence), Red Island, Pula, Rijeka, Opatija, Porec and so on.
Discovering the beautiful landscapes of Istria may best be done by car, the worlds smallest city of Hum and many other stunning hilltop towns and coastal islands can be discovered from Rovinj. This apartment is ideally placed for Cycling and walking tracks around the region.
There are some local cafes, restaurants and bars in the area which do not affect the peaceful atmosphere of the location and a very well stocked local supermarket 30 seconds walk from the apartment
