Kat and her family are very sweet and friendly hosts. At arrival we had a pleasant surprise that our apartment got upgraded to an even bigger one. The apartment was very clean and spacious. We had two double bedrooms and two bathrooms. The kitchen and living room are huge, as well as the balcony with the most beautiful sea view. It was a perfect choice to stay at Podstrana in this aparment and we would definitely again if we are visiting Croatia the next time. We had a wonderful time at the cozy family retreat apartment and could not wish for any better! Thanks a lot, it was a great stay and we can't stop dreaming about the gorgeous view we fell in love with. Everything was perfect..
The Cozy Family Retreat is wonderful. In my opinion if you don't stay there it will be your loss. I was greeted upon arrival and from there on Katarina was available when I needed info. She gave me ideas as to where to visit. The apartment was exactly as listed on Airbnb and was so very clean. It is a very safe area. I was there alone for a month and never had any fear. I traveled by local bus and they are always on time. Katarina is a very intelligent, beautiful, and caring person. Her
brother also helped me out. You are able to cook for yourself or just walk down the beach and there are restaurants. ATM, bakery, and grocery store within a couple of blocks. You will love it there.
The apartment was just lovely, a really special place with a magic all its own. It had everything we could ask for, was in a peaceful and beautiful location and the views were tremendous. Katarina was sweet as can be, extremely helpful and helped us out when we needed something.
A totally satisfying experience, and I would go back in a heartbeat. Thank you for the great visit.
Kate and her family were wonderful hosts and went out of their way for us several times. The location is fabulous!!! Right on the beach, the water is clear and it is really a beautiful spot! The view from the balcony was one of the best parts of our time in Split/Podstrana. The bedrooms were a little small, you could not walk by with the wardrobe doors open. The apartment could also use a few updates but they do look just like the pictures. The internet was very slow and I could not connect to wifi on my ipad without going out into the stairway. Overall the apartment was comfortable and well equipped with everything we needed. I would recommend staying here as I doubt you could find a better location!
Apartment is as good as it looks in the pictures. The view from the terrace is as lovely as you can see. We loved our stay!
Kate is very good host. Communication was quick and flexible. She even ordered us taxi to pick us up from the airport - great service!
We really liked the area where the apartment is located. Beach is right there, just out from the gate. Garden is beutiful and what is better than little day dreaming under an olivetree. There are restaurants with in walking distance. We used the neighbour restaurant and found it very good. The marina brings a bit our "glamour" to your holiday with fancy boats and nice coffees. Travelling with kids, the beach is nice and we found it being safe. Just remember swimming shoes. There are few playgrounds with in walking distance. Near by you can also find a little supermarket and then in about 1 km away from the apartment fresh fruit, bakery and a bit bigger store.
Going to Split couldn't be easier. Busstop is right on the other side of the street and buss is going twice in an hour, takes about 15 min.
Altogether, great place for holiday!
Appartment is very clean and lightly, modern with all equipment. We spend a lot of time on the wonderfull terrace reading and enjoyind drinks. The view is just amazing and sunset is just pure emotion.
Katarina, was very nice, we just met her when we arrived, she was ready to help at any moment, but as everything was perfect, we didn't see her again)).
It's already possible to swim in the sea, (even if you are not a seal), water is fresh but fantastic.
This place has the most amazing view of the Adriatic! We lucked out with having great weather even in the off season and being able to enjoy sunset meals on the balcony and swimming in the sea and enjoying the beautiful beach right out the back. Kate and her family were such gracious hosts, from providing fresh linens and oranges throughout our stay, to arranging pick up at the bus station. The apartment is very tidy and has everything you need. The bus stop out the front door gets you to Split in 20 minutes, or you can walk to the Le Meridian in 5 minutes to enjoy their marina and restaurants. Overall, a great place to unwind and admire the natural beauty of Croatia.

I enjoy travelling, reading, creative writing and taking long walks along the beach after a hard day's work. Feel so blessed living that close to the sea which is why I'd love nothing more than to ensure You get the most out of Your stay thus taking a little piece of the Adriatic paradise home with you.
