- High, consistent, solid Rental Income;
- Full rental & management service "in-house" - in this way you don't need to worry about anything;

It's not easy to find such a "perfect combination" .

All that is necessary to achieve your goal: A beautiful villa and a profitable investment.

Therefore, in 2017 Marta Stone together with Mauro D’Urbano founded Candy Brick! 😊

What is Candy Brick?

Candy Brick means new modern villas in Istria with full rental property management.

Candy Brick represents a source of pleasure & wealth, in a win-win situation to maximize value creation for all parties involved.

Candy Brick villas: unique benefits

New modern, energy-efficient villas, developed by a team of reputable professionals.

With Candy Brick, you can count on a very reputable partner in Istria. Candy Brick projects are developed and supervised by Valentina Kaić and Studio Kaić Arhitekti.

We also take care of all the project documentation - connection to the utilities, building permits, and usage permits.

That means you don't need to worry about anything during the construction process.

In the end, you obtain the finished villa ready for its usage!

Rental income higher-than-average, 12 months a year

Our common goal is to extract the maximum value from your Candy Brick villa.

The average rental income in 2022 for our villas has been above €44,000. This figure is likely to keep increasing.

The villas are consistently rented out by happy guests, all year long.

A significant part of the rental income is generated in summer.

In addition, the villas are also rented in the off-season months, to guests who love to spend time in Istria while working, traveling, and enjoying a beautiful villa in Istria. Off-season rental helps to increase your income as well as the reputation and ranking of your villa.

Following the recent market & economic developments, the number of guests who decide to travel to Istria keeps increasing.

After Covid, private villas with private pool enjoy a higher demand. At the same time, Istria is widely known as a safe region, and very easy to reach.

Stress-free investment & full rental management

That means, you have nothing to worry about:

With a Candy Brick villa, you don't need to deal with guests, maintenance, or issues happening in the house. We take care of your rental management through our dedicated property management & maintenance team.

Beautiful location with growing demand

A seaside location in a welcoming & authentic environment. Close to the sea and short distance to the main services. The Eastern coast of Istria is growing a lot in terms of investments and infrastructure.

This is definitely the best place for the development of a modern private investment villa with a private pool.

The introduction of the Euro & the new Schengen agreement are expected to give additional support to the positive development in this beautiful area.

Conditions are still quite convenient, and the value of properties is likely to continue increasing in the next few years.

THE CANDY BRICK IDEA

Candy Brick is a result of our strong passion towards real estate and hospitality.

The concept was created in 2017 with an objective to develop beautiful and modern real estate projects for rental in Istria.

Since that time, a few beautiful projects were built.

At the same time, in 2019 we started the rental & property management company, in order to extract the maximum value from each villa and boost the rental income. Therefore, we enlarged our team, to take care of the guests, the maintenance and the general management of a profitable rental activity.

Each Candy Brick project brought improvements, new unique features, as a result of improved expertise and feedback achieved from our past activities.

Every project, every year, every day, we improve ourselves and our work.

As of today, thousands of guests from all over the world have stayed in the Candy Brick villas.

However, our starting motivation and our main values have never changed. Candy Brick continues to represent a source of pleasure & wealth, in a win-win situation that includes all partners and participants.

Everybody wins: the local community, the investors, all partners involved, and all the guests happily enjoying the villas. It’s a shared generation of pleasure & wealth.

Why Istria?

Before deciding to develop attractive and modern Candy Brick investment properties in Istria, we have been comparing a large variety of options.

After a long analysis, we came to the conclusion that Istria is definitely the best place for the development of a modern private investment villa with a private pool.

More precisely, the east coast of Istria shows up to be the best choice.

Not 1 but 10 reasons!

1 - Guests love it!

There is such an abundance of stunning places, beautiful beaches, hidden spots, characteristic towns. The feedback from the guests is extremely warm and positive - this is why our villas are fully rented both in summer and wintertime!

2 - High demand & rental income

Demand is constantly growing, more than any other part of Istria. In the full year 2022 our villas achieved a gross rental income around €44,000 per villa, showing a solid and consistent growth every year.

3 - High growth potential

We are still far from the peak! The Eastern coast of Istria still offers significant room for growth. There is still a gap to be filled in terms of market values compared to other locations. That means still favorable conditions and higher return on investment expected.

4 - Driver-friendly

The Eastern coast of Istria is very easy to reach by car from many European countries. Guests and families love driving with their private cars to our private villas with pool. That is currently a huge benefit.

5 - Safety

One of the safest places in Europe: guests enjoy their holiday with zero risk and no worries. Croatia's crime index is among the lowest in Europe! "Croatia 2nd in Europe for people feeling safe walking the streets alone at night" - Numbeo.com.

6 - Privacy is here

Even during the Covid-times, private villas with private pools in this region of Istria were fully rented in summer 2021. More precisely, our villas are even more wanted, as people search for more privacy!

7 - 4-season opportunities

The villas are rented in summer (high-spending tourism, avg €3,000 per week) as well as in the mid-low season. Nice weather, and all the attractions all year long, together with the increase of “smart working” among the society, is boosting the 12-month based rental income.

8 - Seaside location

Sea view and a very close distance to the sea! You can enjoy the sea view and you can reach the beach in a few minutes!

9 - Very favorable tax regime

The corporate tax rate has been lowered to only 10%. In addition, you can deduct the value of your real estate investment for 20 years making your real tax rate close to zero.

10 - Introduction of Euro & Schengen

The introduction of the Euro & the new Schengen agreement are expected to give additional support to the positive development in this beautiful area.
