The stay at Truman's Apartments was truly excellent. The interior of the apartment is modern, fresh and chic. It offers wifi, tiled flooring, air conditioning, has a powerful shower, satellite television with many channels, inside and outside dining areas for those evenings when you want to eat in, and loads of wardrobe space so that you can unpack for your holiday.
Leading up to our holiday, Steffen was incredibly helpful and informative, and upon our arrival he made us feel immediately welcome. When we asked, he gave us great recommendations of where to eat, what attractions are worth visiting, and what activities are ideal for the island.
The island is forested, making it ideal for bike riding or walking. We hired bikes from Truman Apartments and Steffen gave us a large map of the island with walking and biking trails. He also took care for our safety, offering a light bike kit (pump, etc) and said we should phone him if we ran into problems so that he could collect us. He also gave us a makeshift hammock that was perfect for a long lazy day on kandorola beach.
Over the few days we were there, we got to know Steffen and his partner, along with another visiting couple that were friends of his. Everyone expressed an interest in boating around the island and Steffen organised the hire of a private boat for us. Our small group spent a sunny day speed boating around the entire island, going to remote beaches, the national park, a bay where you could see the platform of a ship that had been sunk years ago, and even a smaller island to the north of Rab that used to be a men's prison for political activists.
Truman Apartments is located in the heart of Rab, so you get a real feel for local island life. Convenience stores, restaurants, coffee shops, etc, are a minute's walk from the apartment, and it took us about a 4 - 5 minutes to walk to the Old Town and the small harbour. The architecture of the Old Town is quite something, and on a warm summer's night there's nothing quite like sitting outside in the Square for a meal, or watching a football match on a big screen in the open air. There are many hidden cobbled lanes that you can explore during the day, and at night they reveal great out of the way restaurants.
The outside area is shared by other Truman apartment holiday makers, and it's a great way to meet and get to know people. There are hammocks that you can relax in after a long day at the beach and a BBQ if you wanted to eat at home.
I have no hesitation in recommending Truman Apartments, and my partner and I will definitely be returning.
