2011, year three

The Quaich’s phenomenal success has continued into our third season and Mick and I continue to be amazed at the response we receive from guests.  We seem to have hit the mark in providing our particular form of hospitality.

This year we hosted a 50th birthday celebration for a lovely lady and her family from Whitley Bay and several honeymoons as well as a silver wedding celebration for a great Scottish couple.

However, there is a lot more competition on the island than when we started in 2008 and we must constantly look at improving ‘the experience’.

The Jeep Safaris were a huge success this year as where the sailing days we arranged.  The Safari enables guests to experience so much more of what Hvar has to offer - it is a beautiful island and this is your chance to see sites you would not normally find under your own steam.

This winter sees Mick and I doing the usual refurb to our cottages and also the lifting of the stone in the courtyard to be replaced by terracotta tiling - much easier to keep!!  We have also installed an outdoor shower for those verrrrrrrry hot, high summer days when all you want to do is laze by the pool!

Off home to UK for Christmas again soon to catch up with family and friends and then back for a new season.

You can read an article by our good friend Paul Bradbury on our Scottish Christmas dinner here.

Thanks so much to all our great guests this year and hope to see you again soon!
