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 (all dishes inside if you want to cook for yourself) and artistic 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. 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). We dont keep tv in apartment because nobody asked for it, but on your request we can bring one.
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. 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.
Guests have access to everything in apartment, there is no shared areas.
Interaction with Guests
Guests will be alone in apartment, but they 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.
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.
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.
this 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:)
The hosts were very very kind and helpful. I lost my bag at the airport (they were left back at the departure city), and the hosts helped me retrieve it by contacting with the airport for us. I wouldn't have been able to communicate with the guys at the airport easily if it weren't for the hosts.
The house is located very close to the bus terminal, tourist attraction, etc. I would like to stay here again if I come back to Split.
The Appartement is really so nice like the one in the pictures. The Appartement have all what you need to feel like at home.

We stayed two nights and enjoyed so much her apartment ! Sretna is super welcoming and she also told us tips to visit around. And we definitely recommend split, even in December when it was raining cats and dogs !

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 achance 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:)
