The space
House Edi is a traditional Istrian house with all the modern necessities you need for a relaxing and comfortable vacation or remote working. The house is 95 m2 large with an outdoor dining and lounge area, a large private pool and a beautiful garden of additional 510 m2. Please note that this is one rental unit. You can see 3 doors from the outside on the pictures and each of these doors is an entrance / exit from the house (one is the kitchen door, and the other two are bedroom / living room doors). Please look at the house plan in the pictures for better understanding.


The new kitchen was installed in November of 2021, including quartz countertops, large new refrigerator / freezer, dishwasher, microwave, hood, induction cooktop, oven, toaster, blender, food chopper, panini press, electric water kettle and two coffee machines. We have a Nespresso machine with milk frother (aeroccino), filter coffee machine and a French press. We provide few Nespresso pods upon arrival, as well as tea, however, we do not provide unlimited coffee and tea. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the necessary cooking utensils, plates, glasses, coffee / tea cups, pots and pans. If you like to cook, you will certainly enjoy this gourmet kitchen, especially our Mercer culinary knife set. The dining room table is a custom made solid oak table that comfortably sits 6 people and gives a rustic look to the house.

The kitchen has a wood burning fireplace which you can enjoy during cooler months. The whole house can be heated with wood from the fireplace which is connected to the radiators. Price of wood is not included in the rental price, however, we can supply you with wood at an additional cost of 70 Euro per cubic meter. We have 2 electric units for air-conditioning and heating which is included in the price.


The house has 2 bedrooms. The first bedroom is shared with the living room and the office (this is the right door if you look at the pictures from the outside). This bedroom has one Euro Queen bed size (160 x 200 cm) which fits 2 people. This bed lifts and has storage underneath. Around the bed, there is a curtain for privacy since this is shared space with living room and the office.

The second bedroom is in the middle of the house (this is the middle door if you look at the pictures from the outside). This bedroom has one Euro Queen bed size (160 x 200 cm) which fits 2 people. This bedroom also has two single beds (one measures 90 x 200 cm and the other 90 x 190 cm). All beds have bed lamps with wireless and USB charging for compatible smart phones and led light strips. Please note that it is necessary to walk through the middle bedroom to enter the kitchen from the other bedroom / living room. You can also walk to the kitchen from the outside and then do not need to walk through the middle bedroom.

We provide the bedding (single duvet with a cover for each person), pillows, extra pillows and blankets for all the beds. New mattresses, bedding and pillows were purchased in November of 2021.


The house has 2 bathrooms, both of which have showers, toilets and sinks. One of the bathrooms has a washing machine for laundry. We do not have a clothes dryer, we have a line for drying your clothes outside behind the house. Each bathroom has water boiler for hot water and a bathroom heater. We provide bathroom and pool towels. We provide hand soap and few starter rolls of toilet paper. We also provide a hair dryer, an iron and ironing board.


The workspace is a remote workers dream! It is located within the bedroom and living room area. We have a nice desk, comfortable office chair and lamp with wireless and USB phone charging. Upon request, we can provide a 24 inch monitor (Dell S2421HS), wireless keyboard and mouse and cables (HDMI and USB-Type C) to connect your laptop to the monitor. We can also provide a printer, if available. We provide internet via super fast fiber optic cable with download speeds up to 500 Mbps. We installed two of the best Wi-Fi access points available to fully cover the interior and exterior. One access point is located in the kitchen (Ubiquiti UniFi Access Point Long Range, UAP-AC-LR) and one access point in located outside (Ubiquiti UniFi Outdoor Access Point Mesh, UAP-AC-M). We also offer the ability to connect your laptop directly to the router via the Ethernet cable in the office and in the kitchen. We have tested our speeds with multiple devices and reached speeds of 50-500 Mbps. The maximum speed we reached with a smart phone is 260 Mbps and over 500 Mbps with cable connection. You can see in our listing that airBNB verified our Wi-Fi internet speed which was 260 Mbps during their test.

We have two TVs, one in the bedroom / living room and the other one in the kitchen. They both have Satellite and local Antenna channels. The TV in the bedroom is a smart TV and connected to the internet so you can login with your accounts to different apps. We provide an Anker portable Bluetooth speaker.


The outdoor area is 510 m2. The main attraction is the pool! The pool size is 4 x 9 meters (36 m2) and 1.5 meters deep. There is an outdoor shower by the pool. We provide towels for the pool. There are beach lounge chairs with cushions and umbrellas by the pool.

We also have a lounge set with a table and chairs with soft cushions for 4 people. This lounge set is covered with an awning. We also have a coffee bench outside the kitchen, ideal for slow summer mornings! We have a fully covered outdoor patio with a table, seating for 6 on the benches, 2 very relaxing swing chairs and good outdoor lighting including party lights. This is an amazing place for outdoor summer dining. There is a nice area with grass and irrigation system which keeps the grass green in the summer heat.

Please note that pool is covered from October through April and outdoor lounge furniture is not available during this time. We also have a large gas grill available outside.
