The Space

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.
You need to walk 5 minutes from apartment to Diocletian palace and many more palaces inside it. Also, 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. Also, in front of apartment is cafe bar in traditional style where you can have some cakes and tea or coffee for breakfast.
Apartment consists one room with huge bed for 2 and couch for 1, kitchen (all dishes inside if you want to cook for yourself) and bathroom (except standard soap, you will be able to use domestic soap of olive oil that I produce). Towels, blankets and sheets you will find in apartment and if you stay one week or more I will leave an extra one. There is also a wash machine if you will need it. In the fridge you will find juice, milk, butter, jam and some fresh fruits and on the table is bread, sugar, instant coffee, tea and toaster for hot sandwiches. 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 ago. Kitchen is decorated in traditional style with a lot of stuff that nobody use anymore. Bathroom is one huge orange tulip, modern and completely new.
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.
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 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, I 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. My neighbor provides tours by boat. Also, you will find brochures of agency tours so you can compare prices and choose the best for you.
For anything you need during your stay in Split, you can always contact me. My grandmother lives next door to apartment and you are free to use her phone to call me any time of day.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • The accommodation was very close to the centre of town (Split) and the apartment was decorated with so much attention to detail, beautiful, clean and comfortable. Only stayed one day and did not get to meet Sretna but chatted to her on the phone and she was most helpful. Appreciated all the goodies in the fridge as we had not had time to shop before arriving. We will recommend her apartment to our friends without reservation!

  • Stretch and Ivan were amazing hosts. We didn't meet sterna because she just had a baby! But Ivan took such good care of us. He even picked us up in the pouring rain to take us to the ferry boat. The locations was perfect and the apartment was fantastic. We had such a great time on split. I highly recommend!!

  • The apartment is comfortable and has a funny and original decor. The location is excellent, close to the bus-, train station and harbor. There was complimentary product in the fridge for breakfast and lots of books and brochures about Split. We enjoyed our stay very much.

  • Beautifully decorated apartment on the first floor which is great when you have luggage. Sretna was very helpful with tips, guides and maps providing useful information for our short stay. Had everything we needed, bathroom and dining/kitchen area are spacious. Linen was a bit coarse but we were so tired it didn't matter. It is about 5 blocks from the port where our catamaran left for Hvar which was very convenient. Also walking distance from the Riva, restaurants and Dioclesian Palace. Excellent experience

  • It was a great experience! The apartment is located 10min far from the old city, fat enough to be away from the city noise and close enough to move walking. Sretna gave us really great information about where to go, what to visit, where great restaurants were.... All in all Sretna was a great host!!! The apartment has everything you would ask as well.
    I recommend the apartment to anybody who wants to visit Split and I would go there again if I visited Split again

  • Ivan met us at the airport, which was very helpful (30EUR, but well worth it). The apartment was located just outside the centre of Split, and very near the ferry terminal. There was a nearby beach so all very convenient. The nearby cafe was good for coffee but apparently no longer serves breakfast :-( There was quite a lot of noise from the cafe during a broadcast of a football match - that said, the apartment is well sound-proofed. The kitchen was well equipped and it was great having a washing machine. Sretna's mother allowed us to leave our bags on the final day - very kind of her and Strena. There was one big downside for us - the length of the bed - not really suitable for anyone over 6 foot tall, and not that comfortable. Hosts were super people, and Split is a fantastic city to visit. Would we stay again? Definitely yes, if the bed was replaced.

After traveling all around the world 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. That is the reason why we prefer private accommodation or small hostels; in those places you can get familiar with owner and neighbors, you can learn so much about local customs and way of life. 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. 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:)
