Great check-in experience100% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.
Great location100% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.
Indoor fireplaceThis is one of few homes in this area that has this feature.

This unique home was hand-built from the ground up and includes many remarkable details while retaining the feel of a traditional Istrian home. It's handcrafted custom furniture compliments distinctive architecture.

While the building itself is beautifully built, the real show-stopper is the two-level terrace, which features breathtaking views of the surrounding forest. In addition to the views, the terrace features a garden, outdoor dining area, and vine-laden trellis.

Response from Madeline:
Hello John, I'm glad to hear you appreciated our views and felt like our communication was overall very good. We did our best to make your stay pleasant, specifically buying an iron for you to use and a drying rack for clothes - even though these are very clearly marked as amenities we did not provide. We really do want our guests to be comfortable. We even issued you a partial refund. I'm sorry to hear the wine glasses were not to your liking. We hesitate to spend much on them, as they get broken by guests rather frequently. Overall, I feel like we have very competitive rates for Old Town Motovun, even though ours is one of the best views and the quality of our furniture is much, much higher than most. We are fairly newto airbnb and are open to suggestions regarding amenities. Again, I'm sorry you felt that some things were missing. Best of luck. -Maddy

Lovely house in beautiful Motovun, 2 minutes away from the main square. The patio has one of the best views in the village, and it faces the sunset which is absolutely perfect for sundowners and alfresco dinners. Motovun itself is a great base to explore Istria with most places o…
