My girlfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights and we didn't want to leave! The location of the apartment was literally perfect if your preference is to see the main parts of Split, with multiple beaches, Diocletian's Palace, the main riviera, a wonderful range of restaurants and the Marjan forest walk all within 5/10 minutes walking distances. Because of this great location, we managed to fit mostly everything in. After our days and nights out we were genuinely excited to sleep in the extremely comfy QUEEN SIZE bed, which was made even nicer by the cool air con just above the foot of it. The kitchen has everything you could need, with more utensils than expected and a quirky loggia which was handy for drying your wet beach clothes after a day at the beach. We also made use of the big flatscreen tv provided and the table next to the bed to eat our cooked breakfasts on. With regards to the hosts, we couldn't fault their kindness, helpfulness and willingness to communicate with us about anything we needed. In particular, a lovely lad named Josip offered us his recommendations on the best restaurants, pointing things out to us on the maps of Split inside the room. Overall, we left with great fondness of the apartment and would definitely stay there again on our inevitable return to Split one day. Thankyou for having us!

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      We spent 2 fantastic weeks here. The villa was spotlessly clean and immaculate. Very well furnished and equipped with everything that we could've wished for. Natalija had arranged our pick up from the airport which all went smoothly and around 40 minutes later we were at the villa. We were welcomed by the owner and her family with a lovely buffet meal of delicious local food which had been prepared for our arrival. A great start to our holiday! The villa is located just a few metres from the sandy beach and crystal clear waters but we often just lazed round the pool instead due to the higher than usual temperatures during our stay. The kids had a great time in the pool and in the games room and the villa was equipped with everything to keep the adults occupied as well. There were sufficient sun beds and various seating and eating options around the pool and we enjoyed many a happy family BBQ in the evening, taking in the magnificent views from pretty much every room in the villa as well as from the pool area. There were some great local restaurants for when we felt like going out for a meal and there was a small supermarket only a couple of minutes walk. A greater range of shopping, tours and restaurants/bars could be found a shortish walk away in Omis. Every member of the family had a great time and we are all looking forward to our next stay there. We would strongly recommend Villa Paradise to anyone thinking of staying along the Dalmation coast. Thanks for everything Natalija!
