Located between two exceptional monasteries, in the very centre of the medieval town of Šibenik, this self-sufficient apartment exudes an exquisite quality of arty boho chic with a rare touch of vintage. Cosy and gorgeous, it has one separate bedroom with a large confortable double bed. The large sofa in the living room area can be turned into a double bed too, thus welcoming four people in all. The bijou kitchenette is equipped and big enough to throw together a delicious meal. The flat is very central, 10 min walk from the local beach, close to all amenities and surrounded by historical sites such as St. James’ Cathedral (which is on the UNESCO World Heritage List) St. Ann’s Fortress…Two national parks are just a mere drive away and regular ferry lines will take you to the beautiful beaches of the nearby islands. With its ideal location in the pedestrian zone of the town, it has countless restaurants, open street music events, festivals and cafés offrering a breath-taking view of the sea. To make your stay in Šibenik unforgettable, I will be very happy to give you the keys of the town and inform you about all the things and places not to be missed …so you can truly experience the essence of the Croatian art de vivre.
Stepping into Danira's apartment was immediately welcoming and comfortable. The photographs on Airbnb don't do it justice - it had so many quirky homely touches and, although we didn't meet Danira due to other demands on her time, her friend Imre was there to greet us and Danira contacted us regularly to make sure everything was okay.
Sibenik is a wonderful town and the apartment is right in the heart of the old town, surrounded by medieval churches and steeped in history. There's no traffic unless you include the occasional tour group trooping up the hill and the nuns going to and from the convent. There is a whole labyrinth of alley ways to discover, all paved in polished limestone and a photogenic moment around every corner.
Our favourite restaurants were Sesula (great cheap food and fast wifi - don't ask for wine though!!), Zora (fantastic value in pizzas and wine!) and Pelligrini (for more pricey, upmarket food and a wonderful ambiance in the courtyard). The cathedral choir was practicing in the building adjacent to Pelligrini's the night we went, and it couldn't have been more atmospheric.
Don't miss out on visiting the Krka National Park - the waterfalls are spectacular!! Sibenik beach was okay, but the water was very cold as it's more river estuary than Adriatic. There are supermarkets nearby, but there's a huge daily market near the bus station that sold local produce - fish, seafood, fruit, vegetables, olive oil, wine, bread, pastries, etc.
Game of Thrones was being filmed around the cathedral one day while we were there - for GoT fans, it represents a temple in Bravos!
We had problems getting the wifi in the apartment to work, but it was a good excuse to hang out in Sesula when we needed to be in contact with the outside world. There were other bars and restaurants with wifi and there is an open Sibenik wifi that was occasionally available in certain places.
We had a wonderful stay at Daniras place: Situated in the heart of the old town of Šibenik you can hardly find a better place. Danira was the perfect host, providing everything we needed, she even was so kind to pick us up at the bus stop. We would definitely choose this lovely flat again. Thank you Daniar – unfortunately we had no time to leave you some "farewell-drawing" of our own. :-)
Danira's flat is truly lovely, as the host herself:) We spent a fantastic two days in Sibenik using the tips Danira gave us. Sibenik is charming place with one million stairs and one thousand cats! Staying in Sibenik you must stay at Danira's :)
Danira est quelqu'un de vraiment sympathique et disponible; avant notre départ pour la croatie, elle s'est proposé de nous aider par rapport a nos billets d'avion (car nous avons rencontrés quelques petits problèmes); elle nous a accueillit à Sibenik avec le sourire, et nous a de suite mis a l'aise; à notre arrivée dans l'appartement, elle nous avait préparer des documents avec les choses a visiter dans la ville et les alentours et nous a expliquer ou nous garer gratuitement, nous a indiqué les restaurants et bars de la ville; nous voulions voir le centre de soins des rapaces et elle même appelé pour connaitre l'adresse, les horaires et les tarifs (merci encore)
l'appartement est cosy, propre, et correspond à sa propriétaire :)
Nous gardons un très bon souvenir de Sibenik mais surtout de Danira que nous n'oublierons pas et que nous espérons revoir un jour :)
This flat is very well located and Danira is the perfect host. She's very helpful. If you go to Sibenik, you have to choose this flat. Thank you for everythink Danira.
We only stayed one night at Danira's place but absolutely loved it. She has a lovely home which is decorated beautifully. It's in a perfect location and even has a place for you to sit outside in the sun. Communication with Danira was easy and quick. Would absolutely recommend! Thanks Danira!
Apartamento muy acogedor y limpio. Todos los detalles para sentirte como en casa. Muy buena ubicacion. Danira muy amable.
I was born in Sibenik, Dalmatia and love spending my summers there but living in Zagreb rest of the year. Also lived in London for 15 years before I decided to return to my roots. As an actress, love theatre, movies but most of all spending time with my little son.
