Excellent base to explore Split

5 of 5
Lovely comfortable apartment tastefully decorated. Excellent communication from host - check in and out was seamless and hassle free. Spotlessly clean on arrival. Right in the middle of Split beside Diocletian palace. 10 (15 with luggage!) minute walk to train / bus/ ferry area. Fully equipped kitchen. Quiet at night. Fish market just around corner as well as supermarkets/bakery everything is on your doorstep. Enjoy your time in Split!

Fantastic, we will be back

5 of 5
7 of us had a great week, 4 adults & 3 children, during our stay with Mislav on our first visit to Croatia. Apartment was everything we could have asked for, clean, spacious, huge balcony and an almost private beach on the doorstep for us. The apartment is about 200 yards from the local harbour, so easy enough for a short walk to shops and restaurants, which was good as we didn't have a car (really no need for a car here, unless you want to travel further afield). Mislav was a fantastic host, and nothing was too much trouble for him, from blowing up water toys to dropping us at the ferry terminal. Always on hand if need be, but did not intrude on our privacy in any way. Thanks for a great week!
