In 2010 we decided to return to the untouched nature and the quiet life of our ancestors, to the native village of our grandmother. In the little village Jakusi, in the Marina Municipality, we found an old “shoemaker’s house” and several abandoned stone barns without electricity and running water. This didn’t stop us. On the contrary, this oasis of peace hidden in a picturesque Mediterranean landscape, just a few minutes’ drive from the beach, has inspired us to give a new life to the old “shoemaker’s house” and renovate the house and the garden in harmony with the untouched nature that surrounds us.
The basic idea was to combine our traditional Dalmatian stone building with environmentally-friendly and sustainable materials, and to preserve and re-use the original parts of a century old houses. This way we gave new life to old stones, making them part of the interior of our houses. Apart from the stone used in the houses’ interior, we used a special type of wood from Posavina called “lambs”, which grows by the river and is everlasting. The furniture in the house and all the surrounding buildings, as well as the fireplace and the wine cellar are made of this special wood and are entirely handmade.
Stone House Marina is a traditional Dalmatian house adapted to the needs of modern man, where rustic and modern details intertwine. The whole property has a green oasis growing from the stone, enriched with Mediterranean herbs and flowers.
Thanks to its location, Stone House Marina offers you a wide range of activities promising unforgettable holidays. We will be at your disposal and will do our best to make your vacation as pleasant as possible.
