Fantastic 2 Bedroom Apartment with Stunning Views, ika, Kvarner Bay, Croatia
Primorska B 32
With its breath-taking coastlines, warm climate and untouched natural scenery, it is little wonder that Croatia€TM reputation as a place to live continues to grow. On offer here is the chance to invest into this glorious part of the world with this fantastic apartment.
Located in the stunning Adriatic sea resort of ika, Kvarner Bay, a peaceful and well-run village, this property features two bedrooms, bathrooms, beautiful open plan living room/kitchen area and a wonderful balcony area to soak up the sunshine and take in the beautiful surrounding views on. With such breath-taking surroundings it is not difficult to see why Kvarner Bay was voted as one of the top ten places to visit in 2020 by well known travel website lonely planet (visit https://www.lonelyplanet.com/best-in-travel/regions for more info on this). As if that wasn€TM enough, nearby Rijeka (just 19km away) was also voted European Capital of Culture for 2020, backing up the claim that Croatia really is €the€TMplace to be at the moment.
This property not only offers a comfortable, spacious, and spectacular place to live but also the chance to venture into the lucrative and ever-growing holiday rental market, in which Croatia continues to be one of the fastest growing areas across the world. ika is not only a fantastic area in itself but is also a good base from which to discover the endless other wonders of this beautiful country such as the aforementioned Rijeka and world famous sea side resort Opatija (just 4km away). For those wishing to venture a little further, Croatia€TM central location makes it a great base from which to discover many other fascinating countries and cultures including nearby italy, Slovenia, Hungary and Austria.
Another huge draw in the holiday rental market is the fact that this area is a hotbed for sport and leisure activities with numerous walking/cycling areas, ski resorts, water sports and fishing areas nearby.
Golf enthusiasts will not be disappointed either as there are many excellent courses within reasonable driving range such as Golf club Adriatic and Trieste Golf Club. Soccer fans will also be keen to note that the property is just 20km away from the stadium of HNK Rijeka, who play in Croatia€TM top professional division against the likes of Dinamo Zagreb and Hajduk Split.
The area is also very well-connected transport wise both locally, and internationally with Rijeka international Airport just 40km away, providing yet another massive plus point in the holiday rental/commuter markets.
The apartment is 55 m2 in area. There are 2 separate bedrooms, i.e. 3 rooms in total. There is a double bed in one bedroom, whilst the other bedroom is equipped with two separate beds (200×90 cm), plus the additional, but normal size (200×90) third bed in the drawer of one of them. There are built-in closets in both bedrooms, in order to make the most of the available space. Living room is connected with kitchen and dining room, so the whole area would have a balcony view. Balcony is approached from the living room, and it is facing south-east, which makes it pleasant to sit there and enjoy the sea view, especially in the afternoon. There is one bathroom.
As you can see from the photos, the apartment is located in the heart of the village (in the village there is one grocery store, a pharmacy, hairdresser, beauty salon, a restaurant and 2 caffes) and at the same time it is located directly on the beach. The only thing between the apartment and the beach is a local road going through the village as well as a small public parking area. The good thing about such location is not only immediate vicinity of the beach and the sea view, but also the fact that there is no chance someone would build another building in front of the apartment in the future and block that view. All of the apartment’s windows as well as the balcony are oriented towards the sea.
The apartment is being sold fully furnished. it has been thoroughly reconstructed in 2019, not just for decorative purposes but including water pipes and electricity cables too, so it is top quality and good as new. Regarding interior style, the owner has tried to reach maximum functionality whilst avoiding overburdening the space. Except furniture, the apartment is equipped with all appliances one could possibly need – washing machine, dishwasher, microwave oven, stove with an oven, refrigerator with freezer compartment, hairdryer, coffeemaker… Bright, natural colours were chosen to seize the natural light – you’ll find white, light gray and oak, just like the colours of pebbles on the beach.
Directly in front of the apartment is the beautiful Lungomare (officially known as iFranz Joseph Promenade), a seaside walking path along the beach. You can walk towards the left hend side and go to Opatija and Volosko, or go towards the right hand side into Lovran. in total, it is 12 km long and it is the absolutely favourite for locals and tourists.

ABOUT THE AREA
ika, a traditional fishing village, surprises its visitors with a beach coloured with the special Mediterranean atmosphere. A narrow pebbly strip located between the sea and the coastal promenade and crossed by a pier connects century-old images and sounds €” the striking of waves on a boat€TM bow, the shriek of a seagull rising towards the sun €” with the modern catering choice just a few steps away. Bathing in ika€TM springs, sources of the underground flow of mountain water, which are also used for the storage of crates of expensive local wines, is a special feature. Continuing along the coastal path there is the little beach next to the Faculty of Tourism and Hospitality Management, which the students and fans of a break far from the crowds gladly visit.
Sheltered by soaring mountains, the Kvarner Gulf has long been loved by visitors attracted to the mild climate and cobalt waters, and those in search of more than just beach appeal. in the days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the wealthy built holiday homes here, bestowing places like Rijeka and Opatija with a rich legacy of stately Habsburg-era architecture. From both of these neighbouring towns you can easily connect to hiking trails inside the protected forests of Uka Nature Park and Risnjak National Park.
The islands of Cres, LoÅ¡inj, Krk and Rab all have highly atmospheric old port towns and stretches of unspoilt coastline dotted with remote coves for superb swimming. Wildlife puts in an appearance, too: Cres has an important griffon-vulture population, LoÅ¡inj has a marine centre devoted to preserving the Adriatic’s dolphins and turtles, while bears (though elusive) may be sighted in both Uka and Risnjak.
