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!
This 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.
Our Tip…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.

Great Home Cooking & Catering at the VillaWe’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.
Traditional Croatian Cuisine EveningsTraditional Croatian meal evenings are also possible – we can help you arrange this before you travel or you can see how you feel once you are at the villa (or choose three course evening meals). 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.
TransfersThe villa owner is happy to transfer guests from Sumartin Port to Villa Godistar… this is bookable directly with the villa owner and we can arrange this for you on your behalf.
Hire Car at the VillaCar recommended: yes as it's convenient and great to explore, but it is possible to walk to a couple of restaurants! – The owner of Villa Godistar has a brand new (as of Nov 2014) Toyota Yaris Hybrid Sport with 100 hp for guests to hire if they wish. This is bookable directly with the villa owner – if you would like to take advantage of this, just ask and we’ll forward your request on…

Location OverviewThe 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?
Nearby Sumartin is a charming village with restaurants, coffee bars, post office, cash point, little grocery shops and boat hire – you can also catch the boat to Makarska for the day from here!
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.
