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 :)

The space

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:)

This is such a charming and artistic apartment! It's hard not to have a smile on your face looking at all of the decorations and art. The apartment is just steps away from the old part of town which made touring the city easy and convenient. Sretna was a lovely host and made sure I arrived safely and got settled in. As a woman traveling alone I felt safe and comfortable.

Ivan and Sretna's home was amazing! So cute a quirky. It was centrally located and was a great home base for exploring Split. The hosts were fantastic, and made check in easy and allowed us extra time for checkout since no one was staying the day after us. Communication was easy, and we loved our stay!

Great location to port with a more neighborly feel and less crowded area. There is a restaurant outside but with Windows you cannot hear anything and they close at a decent hour. Ivana was so kind offering us local drink and even set us up with a 6 island tour of the caves. One of my favorite air bnbs I've ever stayed in!

Very close to Dioclecians palace and old town. Apartment is rather large. Has washing machine. Finding parking was a bit difficult though.

We are couple blessed with baby girl Evora. All our hobbies that we couldn't live without (books, motorcycles, traveling, music and rock concerts...) became not so important since we got our little miracle in Jun 2014.
After traveling all around the world (it would take too much space to count all countries, it is enough to say that our favorite are those with eternal summer like Canaries islands, Cuba...) we found out that every single part of Earth is gorgeous in unique way and every destination is desirable. Traveling and getting know all diversity of this wonderful world will teach you that. It is the reason why we prefer private accommodation or small hostels; in those places you can get familiar with owners and neighbors, you can learn so much about local customs and way of life. We try to make our guests feel like home and we are willing to help you organize your days and provide all information you want to.
Split is small town and our guests who stay longer than 2-3 days used to say that they don`t have anything to do. To make their days enjoyable we started to organize small tours around Split by car; our guests have a chance to experience all miracles of the beautiful Split region and I get more and more ideas where to take them and what to show. After returning home, we want you to say that our beloved Split and gorgeous region around it capture your hart for good.
Also we can exchange our experiences of other destinations we`v been and get inspired for some new tours in the future. let`s do it with smile:)
