About this listing
Apartment is situated in authentic 100 years old house adapted for modern travelers. Original stone walls and lot of details give character to our central located place. You will have rare pleasure to feel unique Split spirit and enjoy it :)
Our central located Happy Jackdaw apartment consists one room with huge bed for 2 and couch for 1, full equipped kitchen and artistic bathroom.
Towels, blankets and sheets you will find in apartment and if you stay one week or more I will leave an extra one. We dont keep tv in apartment because nobody asked for it, but on your request we can bring one.
Full equipped kitchen (all dishes inside if you want to cook for yourself) is decorated in traditional style with a lot of stuff that nobody use anymore. Old sink made of stone now is cute little "garden" with green plants and flowers. I noticed that some of my guests buy spice herbs in pots and they didnt know where to keep it. Now there is stone sink, perfect for any kind of pots. There is a wash machine if you will need it. In the fridge you will find juice, milk, butter, jam and some other basics and on the table is bread, sugar, instant coffee, tea and toaster for hot sandwiches. We are keeping some basic stuff for cooking; pasta, rice, spices, olive oil, vinegar... There are air conditioner and wi-fi in apartment (no extra charge for it).
Our idea was to decorate bedroom as crazy boat on the sea with a lot of postcards that will inspire you to explore some far places. Furniture in the bedroom is original old furniture that my great-grandparents used long time ago. There is sewing machine that belonged to my grandmother and is about 90 years old, ancient suitcases transformed in small table, lighthouse and book shell in shape of tree... Double bed is comfortable because of brand new madras, but after removing madras I can separate it into 2 single beds. Couch can be bed for 1 guest. For babies we have baby travel cot and linden, when you come with baby I have extra carpets that you can use.
Bathroom is one huge orange tulip, modern and completely new (except standard soap, you will be able to use domestic soap of olive oil that I produce).
We had a lot of fun during making all these decorations, I hope you will enjoy it during your stay here:)
Guests have access to everything in apartment, there is no shared areas.
Interaction with Guests
Guests will be alone in apartment, but you can always contact us by email or phone for anything you need during your stay in Split. My grandmother lives next door to apartment and you can always ask her to call me if you need any.
Apartment is in the center of Split (in family house, ground floor, separate entrance), less than 5 minutes walking from bus and railway stations, ferry port and buses for airport. There are internet cafe, few fast foods, restaurants and supermarket just a few minutes from apartment. It is situated in family house, so atmosphere is warm and friendly.
On the meadow by the house is playground for kids.
You need to walk 5 minutes from apartment to Diocletian palace and many more palaces inside it. It is historical monument from Roman period and it is protected by UNESCO. It is amazing feeling to walk on stone streets that are more than 1700 years old. During summer time those streets are full of life, music and smell of sea food are everywhere. Narrow streets are in shadow even during hot summer days. During winter time you can enjoy in peace and quite atmosphere of this Mediterranean city. Museums, galleries and monuments will always keep you busy.
Out of palace, by the wall, is green market that offer great choice of fruits and vegetables. Open only in the morning just like fish market near by.
Also, in short walk you can reach Marjan, hill that is green lungs of Split. Walking in shadow of pine tree wood will relax you and terrace of cafe bar Vidilica will offer you amazing view on Split and islands near by.
You have less than 5 minutes to the most popular sand beach Bačvice with showers and many night clubs. When you stay at my apartment it is easy to walk around center and enjoy in historical palaces, museums and good food and when you get tired just walk to the beach and refresh yourself. It is easy to spend evening in palace and coast in front of it with traditional live music and just move to some night club on the beach later in night.
In front of apartment is cafe bar in traditional style where you can have some cakes and tea or coffee for breakfast.
It is possible to park car on the street (everybody are doing it, it is really safe), nearby is parking which you have to pay extra. It is possible to bring your bike inside house (in front of apartment or inside it) and there it will be perfectly safe.
Tthis apartment is in the city center so you can walk everywhere. If you want to explore some other parts of Split or nearby places, bus stop is few minutes away. Intercity bus station, railway station and port are 5-10 min walking.
Other Things to Note
There is no checking in and checking out time, it depends about guests after you, we can deal it a day before you leave, I never make any problem about it, it is flexible... Also, if you arrive too early (before another guests leave apartment) or you want to leave Split few hours after checking out, I have small storage room for your bags, you can lock it and leave key in mail box later and you will not be charged for this.
If you want to experience countryside, nature park and small towns around Split, we provide tours by my car (half day and one day) for good price. The brochure about it is in apartment together with city map and brochures with address of museums, rent-a-car and other things that can be interested for you. Also, you will find brochures of agency tours so you can compare prices and choose the best for you.
There is no any special house rules. We expect you to turn off all lights and air conditioner when you leave apartment. So just behave like at home and have a great time:)
