The apartment is away from the crowds and the bustling area of Split but very easy access to this great city! We are located in a great spot serving you for a quiet and relaxing vacation.

Kate was such a lovely host! She even emailed us a word doc with all the great things to do in the area from shopping to restaurants and cafes in both Podstrana and Split! This place is very basic and small but the location is amazing! You cant beat it...we loved making our morning smoothie and strolling down to drink it on the beach...we prepared many meals in the small but functional kitchen and loved it! I would highly recommend this little place to couples wanting to escape the busy city life! The beach was great!
We had a great stay with Katarina. The building is right on the beach and easily connected with Split (about 20-30 minutes by bus from just across the street). We were upgraded to one of the top floor apartments, so I can't comment specifically on this property, but our apartment was fantastic. Everything was in great condition, the balcony had panoramic views of the coast and the air conditioning worked well (a big plus as temperatures were in the high 30s). Overall, we were very pleased and would definitely stay here on our next trip to Split.
I loved being so close to the sea and yet out of the busy city. The room was exactly as presented, was very clean and I would definitely stay here again. Kate and her entire family were kind and helpful. A short walk to restaurants, a bus stop, a mini-mart and tour agencies made this location ideal for my holiday. The internet was adequate for most things but not speedy enough for streaming videos and such. I had all the cooking utensils and dishes I needed and there were a few basics supplies in the room as well. I had enough storage space for all of my belongings, the bed was comfortable, clean sheets were provided each week during my 5 week stay and again, very clean. The home does back up to a busy road but I never felt like any noise coming from it was too much - it was a non-issue for me - but some may not like it.
To me the only drawback is one that seems to be true in many homes around the Adriatic and Mediterranean Seas - there are no flyscreens on the windows. I prefer to have fresh air and hear the sea, but the battle with mosquitoes put a stop to that. That said - I would go there again in a heartbeat. As a matter of fact, my experience at this home is a big part of why I'm already planning a return trip to Croatia.
Great location if you are looking for a quiet place to stay. Property is exactly as described on the listing. Katarina replied promptly to my enquiries before and after booking the apartment. Upon arrival she prepared a nice small welcome treats/snacks. There was one minor hiccup on my first night; the electric stove didn't work, but they called an electrician that same night and got it fixed right away. So, it was not a huge inconvenience. Other than that I had a good stay at the apartment. Also, I needed to go to the post office one time and it was close to closing, Katarina arranged for her brother to give me a ride; I really appreciate it!
Katarina is a wonderful host and the apartment (and scenery) is absolutely beautiful!
Katerina is an amazing host. Her language skills are brilliant and she was able to provide extensive information about the local and wider areas of Podstrana, Split and beyond. Katerina responded very quickly to any queries that we had both before and during our stay, making everything very easy, even providing us with her own a fully written-up guide and booking us taxis!
The 1 bed studio we stayed in is relatively basic, but very clean and has everything you need, utilising the limited space very well. The studio backs onto an outdoor dining patio, followed by a communal garden and finally the beach - just a stone throw away!
In September we found the beach not to be too busy or touristy. Along the shoreline it is possible to find several good restaurants and bars as well as an impressive marina. Many activities are availble including boat trips to the surrounding islands, playing tennis or going to the spa at le meridian hotel, or hiring bikes, kayaks and jet skis.
It is easy to get to local grocery shops on foot and if you want to travel to either Split or Dubrovnik, there are bus stops right outside the apartments too.
Croatia is beautiful and I would definately return to the same spot and even use Katerina's accomodation again.
Lovely place to stay... Nice and clean with the sea view! Everything was perfect.
Katarina and her family are very kind and helpful ! Any question you have, they will help you ...
We spent an amazing time there.

About the Host, Katarina
My name is Kat. I am a third year PhD student in the Department of Linguistics and a proud holder of a BA in both English and Italian Language and Literature from Split University.
I am currently working as a lecturer at the Arts Academy in Split. I am also a full-time English and Italian teacher at "Jure Kastelan" High School in Omis. Working with my students, teaching them and learning from them has proved to be one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.
I enjoy travelling, reading, creative writing and taking long walks along the beach after a hard day's work. Feel so blessed living that close to the sea which is why I'd love nothing more than to ensure You get the most out of Your stay thus taking a little piece of the Adriatic paradise home with you.
Feel free to contact me for any info, directions, piece of advice or help You might need. I would be happy to answer all of Your questions.
Really looking forward to meeting all You aficionados of Croatia and its unique natural beauties!
