About The Owner

I moved to Croatia for a change of pace after living in London. Over the last few years we have renovated properties on the island of Hvar and in the Old Town of Split and we enjoy renting these out to guests from all over the world. Croatia is becoming an increasingly population destination and I think Hvar offers a great mix of relaxation and vibe depending on what you are looking for. Split is an amazing city to explore "the Barcelona of the Balkans" Hvar is the ideal location to relax, a memory of what the Mediterranean was like 30+ years ago. If you are not tied to school holidays then April, May, September and even October are beautiful months to visit the country, you get much more for your money and there are no crowds. Whatever you end up doing - Enjoy your Croatia !

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Split

It's right in the middle of town but offset in a courtyard so its quiet at night - which is important as parts of Split can be really loud for much of the night !

Split is a great town to people watch and within a two minute walk are all the cafes along the water front !

What makes this house unique

From the Tattoo parlour to the Tax Office - everything is within a few minutes walk! Split is a vibrant and small City so it is great to be right in the centre of it all.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The location is perfect, we wondered to local bars, ate at the place next to the fish market and were back home in minutes ! The house has a great charm, basic but very cosy.

Simon, Birmingham.

We loved the house, ideal for exploring the Old Town and Palace. Thanks Jadranka for waiting for us - sorry we were a bit late !

Fantastic location in Old Town Split

  • 5 of 5

We loved this accommodation. The location was very central, but felt quiet and secluded. The courtyard was a particularly peaceful place to sit outside and relax. Jadranka was very pleasant, friendly, and helpful and we very much enjoyed meeting her!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed six wonderful days in the "stone house". It made a huge difference to us when Jadranka met us at the ferry. We were able to establish an excellent relationship with her. The house was spotless. We found the bedrooms better than indicated on the website but there is no other relaxation area. Therefore we enjoyed sitting with the local people living the passing parade at the waterfront.

Thanks Jadranka for the espresso pot and for your advice on what to do and see.

The fantastic location is a huge advantage for thus house at a reasonable price.

The oldest and most famous beach in Split is called Bacvice, this beach is about a 10 minute walk away. The closest beach is in the City Park of Marjan, this park is about 5 minutes walk away.


Split airport is a 40 minute drive from Split Old Town, the bus is 35 kuna or about 5 euros. The ferry port is about a 3-5 minute walk away, the closest bus stop is a 2 minute walk.


The house is close to everything, most things: restaurants, bars, cafe, bakers, butchers, fruit market, fish market, banks, travel agency, chemist, church etc; are within 2 minutes walk away. But as the house is set back in a courtyard it is peaceful at night.

Further Details:

Split is great for outdoor activities and as a gatway to the islands. For the outdoors enthusiast there is much to do in Marjan Park, swimming, tennis, play ground, hiking, rock climbing etc...
