Irena: nice private appartments

Now you already have two camps on Dugi otok but I would consider as better choice (and better value for money) to rent an appartment in some nice place. We were asking on few different locations but then we decided to stay at Irena's in Božava on the Northern side of Dugi otok as they had beautiful garden behind the house and the price was agreeable for the two rooms and kitchen (and bathroom and living room) we had.

The owners are friendly locals whom are taking care on both their guests and the place, so even if it's alomst 10 years old building, it still looks like new and clean (well that's the standard anyways).All appartments have these: 1 or 2 bedrroms, bathroom with hot shower, kitchen with dishes to use so you don't need to bring much of your stuff ecxept some specific things (like water boiler or coffee cooker if you need it at all). Kitchen and living room are together in one place. If you preffer you can as well use aircon for few extra kunas (it can be really hot in upper appartments and also AC will be chasing away those many annoying mosquitos). In my opinion the lower appartments are in better position but are smaller - normally for two but can accomodate another two people but then it's already crowded. Upper appartments are spacious with two bedrooms and large living room-kitchen area and balcony on sunny side.
In case you'd like to check out news from your end of the world, there's a satellite TV whom had whatever you need in most of languages, including Dhamma TV in Thai, subtitled into English.
The garden has lovely terrace and nice barbecue and it's settled between dry walls and few fruit trees. Lovely place to sit down in the evening or to fry delicious lunch. Just get rid of those mosquitos and you can sip your glass of wine in peace.
It's about 10 min walk to the shop and centre of Božava, and little more if you walk to the beaches which are everywhere around Božava, some really great ones as well with plenty of pine shade and gravel, or rocks.
