The House is in the middle of it , next to the river and a 5 min walk across the street to Omis’ sandy beach. THE PIRATE'S ALCOVE, aka Yellow House on the River, our Croatian Beach House, got its name from allegedly being the HQ of the corsairs protecting the town from foreign invaders centuries ago. Built from the remains of the old city walls makes it a historic landmark protected by the city.
The Omis historical Coat of Arms from 1541 was preserved in the stone facade of the house; it is one of the original building stones. Still to this day, the town celebrates it's history with annual summer Pirate Festivals and Battles. The town's ancient history, the bay's crystal clear waters, the river Cetina's perfect rafting waters, the shallow sand beaches for families with young children. You have the perfect Croatian Summer Beach House for all.

Other Things to Note
We are expats from NYC & Austria , a multi cultural family & friends , living in Croatia since 2003 and Silvie lives in Bali since 1999 . We have traveled and still are, around the world, but always spend 4 weeks a year in Omis.
While others love to go out to party , Brac & Hvar rules the European party scene, and the brand new ULTRA EUROPE brought crowds of young people to this amazing part of the world, but for us it is total recovery retreat before school and work season starts in September.
