Teenagers will have a blast attending all summer parties in the region ,

while the elderly can visit an infinity of cultural sites, including day trips to Dubrovnik or the islands and but those looking for an adventurous vacation have plenty to do here, from rafting on Cetina

hiking the surrounding mountains

rock climbing,

para sailing,

windsurf ,

wake boarding , kite surfing or renting a boat( with or without skipper) to go up the river or roam the islands.

Something for everyone.

If some evening action is needed, other than restaurants, evening walks, bars and cafes, Split is merely a 30 minute drive away , and all can be found there from Movie complexes to major shopping malls.

The river / sea setting of the house is the perfect combination of beach during the day and taking in the evening breeze while enjoying a glass of wine on the balcony or the porch.

The third floor balcony is perfect for breakfast and evening hangouts while enjoying the surrounding views. Conveniently located between Split and Dubrovnik, Omis is currently the HOT SPOT in Europe to be!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Miriam in der Muhlen-Westercappel,



Feedback from Home ID 152665 has been left about your HomeExchange.com listing 172447.

We exchanged with the summer home in Omis. The home was right in the town on an active little square and the other side was on the river with a spectacular view of the mountains and sea. The house was very well equipped and comfortable. The beach was terrific and only about 5 minutes walk away through food markets and souvenir shops (interlaced with Gelato stands!!!). The scenery in the immediate area is breathtaking and the coast is lined with narrow little beaches, with crystalline water, some completely deserted. Seafood was great in the restaurants and they were quite reasonably priced.

If it weren't for my very large dog, I would revisit this exchange again and again!!

This was my friend's favourite place that she ever visited and she still talks about it to this day. I would HIGHLY recommend this exchange!!

Miriam and family are also wonderful people and will make sure your stay is memorable.

We are expats from NYC , a multi ethical & cultural family living in Croatia since 2003. Being both Tomo and myself active in the entertainment industry for years, Omis became our ' quiete haven' while still living in NYC , when we would spend the summer school vacation months in Omis/ Split.

We have travelled and still are, around the world, but always spend 4 weeks a year In Omis.

Its natural beauty is un paralleled!

While others love it to go out party , Brac & Hvar rule the European party scene, but for us it is total recovery mode before school and work season starts in september.

Miriam purchased this house in 1999

Everyone needs a save haven to recover from the hectic city lights. Omis is just that, but with the convenient big city and bright lights near enough when Peace and Quiet becomes too much....

After vacationing in Omis since 1999, we are still mesmerized by the incredible scenery in this region. The mountains look painted on to the sky, while the fresh evening river breeze makes AC unnecessary the sky behind the Rive and Sea. It is so surreal and the scenery seems taken from a fairy tail picture book.

We decided in 2012 to renovate the house to add some luxury to this perfect home for additional enjoyment and extended stays. We will always spend the last 2 weeks of August in our amazing beach house.

One month stay in Omis

  • 5 out of 5
We were picked up at the airport by a taxi service recommended by the owners of the Omiis home. We arrived on Saturday evening and the taxi driver helped us to find the grocery store. The house was very comfortable with more than ample supplies of sheets and towels, and kitchenware. There were 6 adults in our party and we all enjoyed the lovely old town and the view of the river. We were there long enough to meet some of the local people who we found to be very friendly and helpful. Miriam had made arrangements with the tourist agency to help us as well as the caretaker. We took a trip upriver with Evan and we saw him most days. We asked him to take us to the airport when we returned and he was delighted. The house was super, the people were super and the weather cooperated most days. It was a wonderful month for us all.

Beautiful home, in the center of hip, medieval town Croatian town with rich history (Pirates!). Great restaurants and markets for fresh food, just steps outside the front door. hiking up beautiful mountain along the river is 200 meters away. nice, clean beaches abound. overall, great Med/Adriatic experience. Way better than the Riviera at a fraction of the price.

Omis is a jewel!

  • 5 out of 5
We had the privilege of staying here in 2013 and loved it! Lots of bedrooms for our large family (four children) and in a great town…we loved Omis! Omis has the friendliest, most hospitable people we’ve met in Europe. And we loved being so close to Split, another amazing Croatian city. Highly recommended!
