About the property

4 Bed/4 Bath Villa for 10+2 People With Private Pool. Close to the Beach

The Olive Shadow Villa has been named by its eighteen olive trees surrounding the house in a well crafted, Mediterranean style garden that is beautified with lavender, roses as well as a stunning bougainvillea flower. There is an outdoor private pool. In the additional info tab we have listed another property (Villa Vera) that we own and manage which is located 25km south of the Olive Shadow. Here is the link:

The Olive Shadow Villa is rented on weekly or daily basis (min 3 days stay) . The Villa is fully air conditioned, fully refurbished with a high standard furniture and appliances. Pretty much everything is brand new and internet wired. There are two+ parking spaces available for various motor and non-motor vehicles available for your use. Guests are welcomed to enjoy outdoor grilling in a stand alone grill set up which is perfectly suitable for grilled calamari, octopus, fish and sizzling lamb chops. That in a combination with home grown garden tomatoes is a perfect start for a group dinner. The Olive Shadow Villa is located in the City of the Diocletian Palace, a UNESCO protected world monument that was build in 3rd century anno domini. Local beaches offer first and foremost swimming and boating in a pristine sea, beach volleyball, endless coffee drinking in a nearby beach bar, scooter driving and boat excursions. Of course, all of this is accessible to our guests by foot. The City of Split is a lively Mediterranean City that offers numerous events during the summer time: Split Music Festivals, Split Summer Festivals, various artistic performances, plenty of bars and restaurants, and very good looking people strolling around the City. We, your hosts, are here to help you out with where to go and what to see.

Please note that for a three day stay, we charge 50 eur per day more. This is not reflected in the price, but it does get added to the total bill.

Amazing, beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

Me and my girlfriends stay at this villa this weekend.

We had the time of our life's. What an amazing owner, couldn't of been anymore helpful if he tired :)

He Took us to the super market on the first day we arrived and helped us whilst we were in there with translations and then brought us back! Amazing

He also Told me if I needed any help to message him on advise which was lovely :)

The villa itselfs it situated in the most beautiful surroundings, so peaceful.

About 10 min drive to the town centre which is perfect.

The villa was lovely and spacious

Definitely would recommend to anyone.

Thank you for making our stay so perfect

Amazing, spacious, with private pool apartment

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at the Olive Shadow in August 2014 and words cannot describe how amazing this holiday was, how hospitable and welcoming Lovre the host was. The Olive Shadow is a true gem located in the city of Split with a large pool, spacious terraces and apartment which is designed and equipped with modern furniture and appliances. Frankly, the house we live in England is smaller than this apartment! The Olive Shadow is literally 2 min away from the beaches and there are plenty to chose from. There are a lot of bars and restaurants in the surrounding area to chose from. Weather is amazingly warm and sunny, but dry, and temperature stood at around 28-30 degrees Celsius. Croatian people are welcoming, hospitable, and there to help out if you get lost. Lovre has took us around the first day we arrived and even took us to the large Tesco style supermarket to load on groceries for the week. He hasn't charged us for this, and he was there to help out with queries regarding the downtown Diocletian palace. Amazing, amazing, amazing house, amazing welcome, and we shall be hopefully back next year!!
