The local concierge Alison at Villa Livka, Island of Brac, Croatia came to our rescue when our hired car from Split airport broke down late at night as we drove a few miles away from the airport. Our family was on a tight schedule to catch the last ferry over to the Island of Brac to stay at Villa Livka. On reaching Alison by mobile she took over, organising taxis, advising the local police about the abandoned car and organising another hired car to be delivered to us on the Island, the following day. Having a Local Concierge who has worked with the Club for many years, with great experience and local knowledge is so invaluable, her efforts to sort everything out were fantastic and this is an element of what makes The Hideaways Club so unique and special.
All the arrangements were as planned, and well done to Maria for putting all the arrangements in place for all 12 members of the family. Mirko was available whenever contacted (including in the middle of the night when a taxi lost its way back to Casa Cielo!). I was recommended some excellent restaurants. Very professional. The location of Casa Cielo is amazing. To wake up to that view every morning was truly uplifting.
The housekeeper is one of those people you just want to pick up and take home with you. Thanks to her I, as a mother of three, truly had a holiday. Nothing was too much trouble.
What has really made a difference to our holidays has been the services from the Concierge Team both centrally and locally in terms of the personal shop, booking trips, restaurants, golf tee times and ski guides... and we have always benefited from expert knowledge and great discounts.
We are very appreciative of the assistance provided by Ozlem with the theatre bookings. She recommended the champagne package and it was excellent.
You delighted us by having the hot tub ready for us on the day we arrived. This really was fantastic!
We'll prepare your Club home to the highest standards and personal preferences prior to your arrival.
There's nothing better than coming home to a warm welcome and well-stocked fridge with peace of mind that all cleaning, housekeeping and upkeep have been meticulously taken care of.
