What are the key problems of private accommodation? How to combat the black market? What is a real estate business and what is family accommodation? The positive impact of family accommodation on the circular economy? Importance of branding family accommodation? Do we need an umbrella brand of family accommodation? - are just one of the topics of the new tourist loud thinking.
Family accommodation in Croatia was the main topic of the podcast Homo Turisticus, in which he only had the honor to host the first person of family accommodation in Croatia, Martin Nimac Kalcina, President of the Family Tourism Association of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce.
"Branding family accommodation is necessary in my opinion. But it is a process that must be initiated by the regional self-government or local self-government unit, and not by the private renters themselves. It is unbelievable to me that this process has stopped, that it has not been worked on for years, in my opinion it should have worked a long time ago. Whoever is in some part of the world and when I tell him private accommodation in Croatia, that he has some picture and perception of our private accommodation. To be able to immediately imagine a Mediterranean villa, agritourism, a traditional stone house…. When we say Tuscany, no one imagines luxury resorts and hotels, but some smaller family hotel or agritourism with vineyards. This does not mean that Tuscany does not have luxury hotels on offer, but the perception of the brand is clear.
Holiday homes have the opportunity to show their excellence in Europe by applying to the competition for the best family tourism accommodation Best European Holiday Home (BEHH) in the organization European Holiday Home Association (EHHA).
From year to year, Croatia has more and more representatives at BEHH, in fact, even in 2017, Croatia became the absolute winner by winning awards in as many as four of the eight categories, while in 2019, out of a total of 64 finalists from 17 countries, there were 11 Croatian houses. , and two holiday homes from Croatia were declared the best in Europe. sign up HERE
As for the current situation in private accommodation, Nimac Kalcina points out that the situation in private accommodation is similar to that in hotels - reservations and bookings have started to arrive. "They can be classified as last minute bookings, and it is almost certain that there will be more and more such bookings. It is predicted that a good part of private renters will fill their capacities, because they will receive more last minute reservations than in previous years. ", quotes Nimac Kalcina.

"People themselves have realized that they have to specialize, because simply successful business nowadays is based on specialization. The agencies themselves specialize, from congress tourism to adventure tourism. This automatically means that you have to specialize your service in order to be marketed and filled by these agencies.”Adds Martina Nimac Kalcina and adds that private renters must develop their service and accommodation in accordance with the specialization.
