  • We had a great stay at the Magical Sunset Apartment during the month of January. Kate is a lovely and very supportive host, so is her whole family. The place is very clean and cozy, stocked with all the necessities for short and for long stay, and the location is just perfect. We definitely would suggest this accommodation to other guests.

  • My husband, two year old son and I spent the better part of a month at Katarina's Magical Sunset Apartment. This was one of the last places we stayed on our 6 month adventure in Europe.

    The name says it all: the sunsets are beautiful and the proximity to the beach is fantastic.

    Initially we were concerned that the apartment might smell of smoke since smoking is allowed (my husband is very sensitive to cigarette smoke). Our concerns turned out to be unfounded; we never smelled any smoke (not even from the surrounding units).

    The beach is made up of pebbles so you should bring some sort of water shoes to really enjoy it. The water is crystal clear so a mask, fins and snorkel are recommended as well.

    My husband works from home so he worked during the week days and we were able to explore the area on weekends. One difficulty we encountered (which probably won't apply to most) is that the Internet speed was very slow (it appeared to be a DSL connection shared with the other apartments in the building). This also made access to Netflix (via VPN) in the evening virtually impossible.

    Katarina was nice enough to loan my husband a cellular dongle for his laptop for use when the Internet was slow. This did help.

    The TV in the apartment is old and the channel selections are quite limited (there were only a few English channels). We struggled with evening entertainment after the sun went down. In our previous apartments we would simply connect the iPad to the TV and watch movies/TV shows that we had previously downloaded. Since the TV didn't have an HDMI port we could only crowd around the iPad to watch these.

    There are two clothes washing machines outside the unit downstairs that are shared amongst the five or so units in the building. Luckily we didn't run into too many problems getting the use of one when we needed it. The climate is dry enough that the clothes dry on the patio rack pretty quickly.

    There are a couple of tiny grocery stores within walking distance, but the bigger stores are a bus/car ride away.

    If you have kids there is a really nice big playground just as you enter Podstrana from Split (it's on the right-hand side on the water). We spent many hours there with our son. There is also a really nice (and free!) play area at the City Centre1 mall as you head towards Split. You can even drop your 3+ year old child off and they'll watch them for free as you shop.

    If you have a car the parking is very convenient and secure on the grounds of the apartment.

    Katarina has a very comprehensive manual that she provides that provides a great overview of the neighborhood and instructions on how to get around without a car.

  • Truly magical. After stepping out of the car there was no need to re-enter it for our 5 day stay. EVERYTHING needed is available right there. Seconds form the beach with groceries a short walk and a variety of restaurants within a few steps.
    The sea is a beautiful color, calm - perfect for swimming, and a great temperature too!
    Katarina is a fantastic host. Attentive but not intrusive, just lovely.
    A unforgettable experience! Thank you Katarina! Summer 2013

  • We stayed for close to a month at Katarina's and enjoyed a relaxing and quiet time in the Magical Sunset Apartment. The apartment was just as described and shown in the photos. The proximity to the water, the view from the terrasse and the sunsets were priceless. Katarina is a friendly, engaging, and attentive hostess with an impressive command of English (and Italian).

  • I can definitely say that month me and my girlfriend spent in Croatia was amazing! And Catarina is responsible :)
    First of all the apartment is the most comfortable beautiful and tastefully decorated we've ever rented. All bedrooms are really cozy, the kitchen is huge and fully equipped. And the terrase... I'm almost ready to kill somebody for that view!
    And certainly Cararina is incredible! She is the most charming person we've met in whole Europe. She has great sense of humor and she is incredibly smart. Not to mention she speaks 4 languages, oh my God! We really enjoyed the time we spent with her!
    What else can I say? Only that we're really determined to come back :)

  • We were greeted warmly at the door upon our arrival. Katarina is an extremely good host that cares about your needs and always willing to assist with any issues or questions you have about the area! For the apartment it was very clean and spacious and had everything we needed for our stay! The view for the terrace is " WOW". It makes you feel like you are hanging over the edge of the water. We spent a great deal of our time on the terrace and when you open the sliding doors (three of them) it makes the entire apartment feel like it is a part of the terrace outside. Since you have windows on both side of the apartment you will get a breeze through the entire place of fresh sea air! The bed is extremely comfortable and had ample storage for our clothes and things! The bathroom is up to date and the water pressure was very good for taking a shower! We cooked a couple of nights in the apartment and there was nothing missing we needed to prepare a meal! We took many walks along the beach which is about 10m from the property and there is no houses or streets between you and the beach!! You are right on the beach and the blue waters of the sea! Again this apartment has breath taking views! We will be back in Croatia next year and have already reserved some dates at this apartment. There are a number of sobe up and down the coast but you will be missing something special if you don't stay here with Katarina! The hospitality is unbelievable and the views and the accommodations are first class!

  • Magical Sunset Apartment is everything you can dream of. The view from the big balcony takes your breath away:) Apartment is very clean, rooms well decorated, enough space for five persons, kitchen has all the equipment you need for cooking:) Location - bus stop is just over the road and getting to Split by bus is about 15 min ride. Beach is few steps from your door - just perfect:)
    And Katarina is just marvellous - she helps with everything, she's willing to stay up almost all night just to be sure you get there safe and sound! Me and my friends definately recommend this place and hope to be back at Katarina's place soon:)

  • We had a wonderful experience in Croatia and our stay was made even more memorable by Katarina and her family. We flew in late and she helped the taxi driver get to the flat and helped us get in our bags. The place was very clean and our VIEW WAS AMAZING. There was a small grocery for basics within a 5 minute walk and the marina is only a few minutes walk down the beach if a rental car is needed. We did rent a car and went to Plitvicka National Park which was a must see. We had a 9 month old with us so many of the days we just went down to the palm trees and laid in the loungers and swam in the Adriatic. This was probably one of the best spots on the BEACH AND the WATER WAS SO CLEAR AND REFRESHING. We loved our SUNSET VIEW and had some amazing meal on our patio. Also if you walk out to the beach and the first restaurant to the left they have the most amazing pizza called pheasant pizza. See the brochure in the flat and also go to the ancient village that is close to apartment-An AMZING view from there also and historic ruins. Katarina HELPED us get to the ferry and came by every few days to see if we had any questions or needed any directions or suggestions about where to go or what to see. Her HOSPITALITY was beyond generous and made us feel very WELCOMED. We will definitely be back!! Thanks Kate and Family!!!!!
