Guestbook comments from the manager

Date of stay September, 2014

We want to thank you for a marvelous stay at your apartment. It was first class.Location was great!

Joan and friends.

Date of stay August, 2014

Hello Sandra

- just to let you know that we have enjoyed our few days in

Split mainly exploring the historic precinct of the Old Town and a trip to Hvar. For our first visit to Croatia we have discovered how

beautiful Dalmatia is and how friendly are Croatians. The music is

special and, as we are singers ourselves, we have loved the a capella harmony singing wherever we have visited.

Your apartment is first class and so well fitted out in a way that reflects both taste and quality. So I thought it is appropriate to let you know that we have appreciated it. We will vacate by 10am tomorrow and leave the keys in the apartment.



Date of Stay August 13, 2013

This was a first visit to Croatia and Split was a great city to visit with its port and beaches within walking distance to this charming, well appointed and newly renovated apartment. Sandra was a great hostess and arranged our transport from the airport and met us at the apartment when we arrived for the US. The apartment was perfect for 4 adults and included small kitchen and a great porch overlooking the central garden area of the building. This is where we spent most of our time while at the apartment, including eating our meals there. It was perfect for that. Sandra also provided a great map of the immediate neighbourhood with shops and restaurant recommendations that we really enjoyed. Overall, the apartment was perfect for our needs and the location was ideal for our excursions into the city center and local beaches.

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Tolles Apartment in einer sehr schönen und zentralen Lage, aber trotzdem ruhig. Die Kontakte vor Anreise waren stets liebenswürdig, die Betreuung vorort war ebenfalls sehr nett und freundlich. Das Apartment war wirklich sehr sauber, modern ausgestattet und wir haben uns vom ersten Tag an wie zuhause gefühlt.

Wir können das Apartment mit gutem Gewissen weiterempfehlen und würden es immer wieder buchen. Vielen Dank an die Gastgeberin und Dusko

Fantastic location, fantastic apartment, fantastic city!

  • 5 of 5

Superb apartment 5 mins walk from the old town in Split. Very well equipped throughout and spotlessly clean. Sandra organised for Rino to pick us up - he was superb, full of great advice on where and what to eat. There's also lots of great info provided in the apartment, along with toiletries and welcome wine and juice, which was a lovely touch on arrival.

Beautiful apartment in a wonderfully central location. Host was friendly and very helpful.

  • 5 of 5

A really beautiful apartment in a wonderfully central location, with all the amenities you could need, both indoors and out. A short walk into the heart of Split, which is a lovely place with marvellous architecture and great restaurants and cafes - particularly in the area close to the Dalmatian Palace. There is a lovely sandy local beach just a short walk from the apartment and I would definitely recommend a visit there. Sandra gave us some great tips on where to go and what to do - we walked miles just to try and see as much as possible! A day trip to Krka National Park is a must and well worth the travel time - it was one of the highlights of our holiday. Access to all forms of transport can be found at Split harbour, which is again just a short walk from the apartment, so it is easy to organise day trips etc to neighbouring Croatian islands. A truly memorable holiday 👍😊

Further Details:

Experience a magic winter and spring in Emperor's Town of Split.Visit Split and enjoy its mild climate, with 2700 sunny hours per year.This makes it an oasis where, sheltered from the wind, one can enjoy the sun even in wintertime or enjoy the stroll on the sea promenade and have a coffee at one of the many cafes which have open terraces during the whole year.

The City's green soul, the Marian hill (178m) situated on the peninsula is forested park that offers lovely walks away from the city buzz under the pines by the sea, trails through fragrant pine forest, scenic lookouts and ancient chapels.

Many events take place during winter and spring. The music lovers can enjoy concerts, ballets or operas in HNK - theater founded in 1893 (www.hnk-split.hr).In the vicinity of Split there are many islands (Brac,Have) and towns to visit such as Trogir (25 km), Sibenik (80 km), Zadar (150km).

Advent in Split is amazing.The delightful, very atmospheric Christmas Market is held on the Riva waterfront in front of the illuminated walls of the Diocletian Palace. The atmosphere extends across the whole historical center. You can enjoy a varied program of entertainment. Numerous sales stands offer Christmas gifts, local delicacies, warming drinks, sweets, Christmas tree decorations, souvenirs.There are lots of Christmas concerts and children's program.After Christmas the Christmas Market is converted into the New Year's Market until January 10. The special experience is Midnight Mass in Split's cathedral of St. Domnius which was originally built as Diocletian's mausoleum and is almost completely preserved until this day. Split is town for great shopping. Take time and experience it through the festively decorated streets of the historical center or in one of the shopping centers. Taste traditional dalmatian food and wine. Experience the New Year's Eve together with locals in some of restaurants, clubs or traditionally in the open air on Riva near the Diocletian Palace.
