It is DIRECT from center ad there is no need for change or correspondence. There are also some private small buses, servicing the same route that you can take.
Concerning how to get to the place the first time or at the end of your stay:
we recommend you let us pick you up at airport. We charge only 15euros to cover our expenses of gas and parking at airport (average taxi price is 50euros).

Also this way my dad can show you some good spots and places while he drives you.

Jani was such a great host. We were picked up at the dock, driven to the apartment, given a free tour of Split, and shown where to buy, do everything. The apartment has an amazing view and we spent a lot of time on the deck. It was clean, big, with 2 bathrooms and 2 bed rooms. There is a great hamburger stand nearby, Billi, and several markets close by. We were taken back to the dock on our last day and shown where to get our tickets. This was a great week in Split. Also if you want a great excursion go canyoning with Adventure Omis, 15 min by bus from apartment. It was a once in a lifetime experience. This is a great apartment and host.
We were so very warmly welcomed by this wonderful family! The house is beautiful, the location is amazing, and the views are indescribable. The hill IS a big walk, but it's worth it for the views. If you're thinking about booking this place, I highly recommend it. You won't be disappointed.
Loved the place! Couldn't have asked for a better view and hosts!
Jani picked us up at the airport, was a great start to a awesome time.
They were both very hospitable and would gladly visit again.
We spent a fabulous month at this apartment. The view is as stunning as it looks and the sun goes down right in front of you (it faces west). Not only the THREE porches have views, but actually the back and side windows have views too (of the mountains) -- it's literally 360 degrees. The apartment is large and really clean, 2 bdrms and 2 baths. It's a top floor so super quiet.
Yes, the hill is steep. Jani picked us up from the airport so we didn't have to roll bags up it. But every day we enjoyed the sunset with slightly sore legs and it was worth it!
The buses leave twice an hour: roughly on the hour and half past. Twenty minutes to the city. In the city you can buy return tickets and those are cheaper (from the small office at the main bus stop).
We actually enjoyed staying outside the city, it was quiet and it made split even more exciting - we didn't get tired of visiting. Last bus back is midnight tho, don't miss it :)
Amazing sandwiches at the bus stop in Podstrana (Bili was best!) and three groceries stores right there too, a cafe as well, and a bar on the water. A 15 minutes walk to Strobenec offered some more restaurants/beaches/bars too.
So yes, it was a quiet town but easy to get to split (13 kuna each way, cash on the bus, or 10 kuna each way if you get the round trip tickets from the ticket booth in town).
Our hosts were kind, lovely people. Heaps of advice on things to see and do, lots of maps, lots of insider advice.
Overall, a perfect month. Thank you for having us!!
Nous rentrons juste de Podstrana et nous avons adoré notre séjour de deux semaines au soleil.
Ojdana et Jani sont très accueillants, charmants avec toujours le sourire et prêts à rendre service. Ojdana, parle français et connait bien la Croatie et nous a donné de très bons conseils pour découvrir son pays.
Nous sommes deux adultes accompagnés de deux enfants de 11 et 8 ans, le logement est parfait, grand, confortable, fonctionnel pour nous. La vue depuis la terrasse est exceptionnelle, un véritable tableau vivant. Nous y avons pris tous nos repas, avec le plaisir d'admirer cette vue.
Les commerces (supermarchés, marchands de fruits et légumes, poissonnerie, boulangerie) sont proches et Jani nous a véhiculé pour nos premières courses.
Nous avons utilisé le bus régulier 60, le bateau pour nos sorties, effectivement, nous nous sommes bien passés d'une voiture. Plusieurs agences de tourisme existent sur Podstrana, pour partir en groupe visiter des sites difficilement accessibles en transports locaux.
Pour accéder à l'appartement, il y a une belle montée. Pour les personnes qui ont des difficultés pour marcher ou pour les familles avec de très jeunes enfants, nous vous recommandons de venir en voiture.
Nous avons apprécié aussi la jolie plage propre et familiale avec de petits cailloux, une eau très agréable et transparente. La plage est parfaite pour les jeunes enfants aussi. Nous vous conseillons de porter des chaussures de baignade.
C'est vraiment une adresse à recommander pour découvrir la belle ville de Split et ses alentours!!!
L'appartement est tout près des plages (300 m) ; surtout ne pas se contenter de la première plage, en partant sur sa gauche, un chapelet de plages moins fréquentées et plus pittoresques mène jusqu'à la marina et même bien au-delà : ballade matinale très sympa pour rester actif. Supermarchés tout prêt pour les courses quotidiennes. Ojdana est extrêmement accueillante et chaleureuse et s'est mise en 4 pour répondre à nos besoins ; elle a même fait des courses spéciales pour nous, intolérants au blé. Son mari très sympathique également nous a véhiculé pour nos premières courses un peu encombrantes. Des hôtes plus qu'adorables avec qui nous avons échangé facilement en anglais et en français. Ojdana nous a également donné des conseils touristiques pour nos visites, très appréciables. Le logement est très fonctionnel et bénéficie d'une belle vue sur la mer depuis une grande terrasse où nous avons pris tous nos repas y compris au coucher du soleil, magnifique... Nous n'avons pas loué de voiture ; le système de bus est très pratique, à 5 minutes de l'appartement, il dessert Split et au delà, et reste bon marché (1,5 € le trajet adulte jusqu'à Split). Du coup il est facile de rejoindre les ferry pour aller sur les îles. Une bonne adresse à retenir.
Dana and her husband were fantastic hosts, right from day one they collected us from the town split and welcomed us into their home. They were very helpful in showing us the local attractions and places of interest. The house itself is very nice with great views from the balcony. I would highly recommend staying there.
