Hello everyone! We’re a few IT professionals from Croatia, having our own companies/startups in various cities (on the coast) but all of us also own and manage properties for tourists (villas, houses, B&Bs, et.). We would like to use those properties and connect them with our passion for IT by making them available for digital nomads out there.
Those are all high quality accommodation so during a high season I think it would be too expensive, but off season (October till April, depending on the place) we’re able to cut prices A LOT because our main motivation is to network with other IT people out there and promote our location.
Obvious advantage (we believe) is that we’re IT people, so Internet connection (mostly 8 Mbit to 120 Mbit cable or DSL) and other technical issues would not be a problem like in other mostly tourist-oriented places. We also have personnel to assist you in any needs you might have (laundry, paperwork, information, etc); we have contracts with surrounding restaurants and probably could get a good price-cuts for your stay; we could rearrange some space to offices or meeting rooms; because we’re in several different cities (like Split and Zadar) we could arrange a “tour” of several cities or you can choose to be static in one of the cities, etc.
But the question remains, does this make sense to you and what do you need to make Croatia your next destination? We would love to try and meet all those requirements if possible and would appreciate any comment.
