What Hvar Away Clients Say...

We can full heartedly recommend Hvar Away. From the first meeting at our holiday home, Elisha and Matt came across as professional and dedicated. They had clearly done their research and knew the holiday home market on the island. They spent time really getting to know us and our ideas. 


The most valuable aspect for us is Elisha and Matt’s reliability. They are available, proactive, and think ahead of issues you may have not thought about yourself – and whenever problems do arise, they provide a menu of solutions to choose from. The invoicing and record keeping is also impeccable and transparent.


Elisha and Matt’s professionalism and reliability is outstanding, and their offer of services was more comprehensive than what we saw elsewhere. They are also very friendly and easy to work with. We have no regrets choosing them as our business partners. When we are snowed under in our everyday life, we know that things are taken care of in Croatia and we don't need to chase anybody. This is invaluable!

Hvar Away manages our villa – and I can say that they are a great company. From the start, we felt that Elisha and Matt were trustworthy and professional. It’s given us such peace of mind to know that they are on-site with local knowledge, connections, and valuable experience. 

We feel secure knowing we have reliable people looking out for our home, and it’s also exciting to see it generating more revenue than we could have anticipated. The Hvar Away team marketed our house with a beautiful website, photos, and lots of thoughtful touches for guests that must make them feel like they’re in a five star hotel. The result has been a fully booked calendar and consistently great reviews from guests, which always brings a smile. 

Overall, we have been so impressed with Matt and Elisha’s initiatives and proactivity to make our villa shine at its full potential. In fact, we have invested into building another villa on the island which is currently under construction, and we hope to also be managed by Hvar Away upon completion.

We have been on Hvar Away's property care program for over 18 months, including pool maintenance. Matt has also carried out numerous repair works identified from the property care visits, including: rewiring main fuse breakers/sockets as a result of burned main cable in our absence, replacing the boiler, air conditioning installation & servicing, chimney cleaning, roof repairs/broken tiles.


In all circumstances, the service has been exceptional and what feels like life-saving on an island where reliability is often questionable. Matt’s ability is second to none, and his knowledge and quality of work gives us confidence that things are being done to a high level of quality. He has often made his schedule work to help fix urgent issues and always turns up when he says he will.


There is nobody else on the island in our experience who can provide this level of service, communication and professionalism.
