About the property

Ciovo Split Holiday Apartment

We are a small family run business that specialises in holiday lettings on the island of Ciovo which is accessed by bridge. Since 2004 we have managed a variety of 3 & 4 star properties, awarded by Croatian Tourist Board, on behalf of property owners. We carefully select the apartments that we promote as they must meet our high standards and they are only 15 minutes from Split airport.

Our self catering properties sleep up to 8 people. All of our properties have balconies with sea views, wifi, air-conditioning, washing machines, fully equipped kitchens, a selection of games, CD's and DVD's and we also have apartments that offer a pool. Towels and linen are changed on a weekly basis and we have a meet and greet team that will welcome you to your apartment. There are amenities close by for grocery shopping, eating out, bars and of course, secluded bays with calm, clear blue water.

We are proud of our successful business and enjoy helping our guests plan memorable holidays. There are plenty of things to do, for all age groups, and we'd be delighted to recommend a few. It is not essential to rent a car as everything can be accessed by foot however, depending on your needs or desires you may choose one.

Split is in a region known as Dalmatia and it's a great starting point if you're interested in exploring Croatia. There are a staggering 8 UNESCO protected sites within 2 hours of Ciovo. The 2400 year old town of Trogir is on your doorstep with taxi boats leaving the local harbour every 15 minutes. The landscape is mountainous with the Adriatic Sea in the forefront and the people are friendly and very helpful.

We have carefully considered your needs in our apartments and we're always delighted to get feedback and recommendations. The McDonnell family would like to thank you for your interest and we wish you a happy holiday.

The apartments are all a 15 minute drive from Split airport. 3 minute walk to a beautiful secluded beach which also has a little cafe bar and crepe cafe.

Each apartment features a CD player, DVD and Digital TV. Fresh bed linen and towels are supplied and included in the cost. There is a small market just 1 minute from the apartment which is handy for getting any essentials you need.

The supermarket and main village is a 10 minute walk. There are water sports and activities all along the beach. Tennis club and courts are a 3 minute walk. Hotel Villa Katarina is minutes away and has a very good restaurant catering all day, ideal for lunch and dinner - they have a gorgeous green lasagne - try it. Trogir is 5 minutes away by car. Trogir is a medieval town protected by UNESCO with over 100 restaurants and bars and a beautiful port with entertainment & cocktail bars. Penthouse Christina is another apartment we have with a pool can be viewed at the link below availability.

Welcome Pack and Entertainment Area: The entertainment area consists of a DVD and CD player. We also have Satellite TV at all the accommodations. A welcome pack is provided for guests to use to make you familiar with Ciovo/Trogir.

Important telephone numbers are listed and the pack includes maps of the surrounding area. Also a wide selection of cd's are available to use throughout your stay. An extensive list of artists are included that we think you will enjoy. We also have a variety of games at each penthouse - poker chip and card set, chess board, draughts board and jenja.

Tourist Attractions: Some of the tourist attraction include Krka Park – 72 Km of the Krka river and lakes which has wonderful waterfalls. Approx 55 minutes by car from the apartment heading towards Sibenik. And a must see. Don't forget your swimming togs - you get swim at the lakes and it's glorious!

Trogir – Is a jewel of a walled town with a wide waterfront promenade that encloses a maze of medieval streets.Places of interest include Cathedral of St Lovro and Church of St. John the Baptist. 15th century town.

Find us on Facebook: You can now find us on Facebook - to like our page search under 'Apartment Rentals Croatia' or 'Split Rentals'. You can find out more about Ciovo and the apartments. I aim to add as much information as I can over the next while. But with your help everyone will benefit from information you upload. Become a fan (by clicking on the 'become a fan' link in the right hand corner of the page) and you'll be kept updated. You can chat, get or give advice, upload your photos and generally talk about your experience. Don't forget to upload some of your favourite pictures of Croatia.

These properties are situated on the top (3rd floor) and accessed by steps - totally worth it for the stunning view. The majority of properties on Ciovo and in the area don't reach more than 3 floors - thankfully. There is no lift in the majority of buildings on Ciovo. If you think you might be concerned about them I do manage other properties on the 1st floor - let me know if you have any questions.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Alison,



Just to let you know that our week at Apartment 19 was absolutely great. Accommodation, facilities, and position excellent, which together with Josipa's friendly welcome, and assistance, all combined to ensure our long awaited family holiday was enjoyable, and relaxing. Looks as though we chose the "right week" as well regarding weather, which was great all week, and looking pretty stormy for this one !



Local restaurants, beaches, and Cocktail bars, particularly on Wold Cup Football opening night, we're very vibrant, and also added to the relaxed, and enjoyable local atmosphere.



So, thank you for the facilities provided by No 19, and look forward to returning at some stage in the future.



Kind Regards,

Mervyn & Family

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful appartment, beautiful part of Croatia, fantastic holiday!

Firstly I'd like to thank you for renting us this exceptionally clean, spacious and well located appartment. The views are fantastic and it's proximity to everything is great. I honestly did not want to leave!

Ciovo is a fun, friendly beach town with lots of families and young people alike. Days are spent relaxing on the beach and swimming in the sea and evenings are spent in the many beach bars and concerts; or just dining in one of the resturants. We liked eating in 'Leonardo's' a pizza place by the marina, great stone-baked pizzas for about 3 pounds! I would advise people to bring a phrase book though as most Croatians do not speak English. The boat into Trogir is a fun inexpensive way to see this wonderful city. Trogir is a must see. The tiny cobbled streets are marvelous and the terraces are great to get a bite to eat or sip a cocktail. And the ice-cream is delicious! We went on one of the island hoping day trips and visited Solta and Medena, they were just beautiful and unspoilt. The week we were there must have been the hottest week all year, so the air conditioning was a life saver. Having a washing machine was great too, and the clothes literally dried in 10 minutes out on the balcony!

All-in-all this was a truly wonderful experience in which I have great memories. I have fallen in love with this part of the world and hope to return one day.

Thanks Alison, all the best to you.......

Relaxing in the sun...

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for a excellent stay in the 8b apartment!! We stayed 3 persons for 3 weeks and 12 days in the middle of the stay we were 5 persons. We really enjoy the stay! The apartment and neighbourhood was great. Especially the well equipped (almost new) apartment, nice terrace, nice bath/water and Trogir (market in the mornings and walks in the evenings)..

In Okrug we can recommend Katrina's (2 minutes walk) for the dinners and the excellent service and Leonardo's (in the harbour) for pizza, sallads, etc in the middle of the day.

In Trogir we can recommend the restaurant The End (recommended in the Welcome pack) and we think almost all places for ice-cream and refreshments.

To buy food we recommend Kerum which is located across the street from the main beach.

One day we took a full-day boat trip (Okrug-Solta-Okrug)wich was very worth it's price and all-inclusive with refreshment (incl local drinks) and food (grilled fish). Highly recommended! It was the same nice boat with wooden deck that was used for taxi in the evenings and the tour started and ended in the harbour in Okrug.

But for other excursions the heat stopped us. We only managed bath, relaxing in sun/shadow, eating/drinking (what can be better than a half litre of Karlovacko and a pizza or sallad in the shadow at Leonardo's in the middle of the day), relaxing and enjoying the breathtaking view (incl sunset over the sea and mountains) at the terrace in the evenings and relaxing walks in the evenings (watch out for the traffic!!)

The service in the apartment from Vlado must of course be mentioned as well. Nothing was impossible for him!!.

Thanks again!

Owner's Response: We are really delighted Olle and his family had a lovely stay. Three weeks on Ciovo is a real treat and gives you the perfect amount of time to really relax. The boat trip sounds great and very handy that it departs at the harbour at Okrug. Karlovacko is available in most of the bars/restaurants - its the best beer on the island. Vlado does his utmost to help with anything that he can.

Relaxing and exciting

  • 5 of 5

I returned to the island of Ciovo for the 3rd consecutive year in June this year. We travelled as part of a group from Ireland, 2 couples went for 2 weeks and for the second week we were joined by another couple with their 2 children ages 6 and 9.

I booked the accommodation with Alison again because she’s very reliable and made a huge effort to find something that suited our needs. 4 adults checked into apartment Anna on arrival and we stayed there for the first week. Anna is a spacious and airy duplex apartment with one en-suite bedroom upstairs and another bedroom and main bathroom downstairs, giving both couples some privacy at night. The living area is double height with a feeling of spaciousness and this also helped with keeping the space cool. The balcony has beautiful views across the Adriatic and Ciovo mountains and forests. For the second week we moved to Apartment Ellie with the family of 4 who joined us. Ellie exceeded our expectations, what a beautiful apartment and it’s very large!

(I’ve reviewed our activities and Apartment Ellie under the Ellie tab).

I was hoping the other couples would enjoy the holiday as much as I did (because I suggested the location when we decided to holiday together!) and everyone genuinely loved it. They were most impressed with the convenience of the location and amenities and of course the local attractions.

Alison, you’re a star… thanks so much for having us and I’ll be talking to you soon to book next year’s holiday, looking forward to it already!

Our Best Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully spacious holiday apartment exceeded all expectations. We have two children aged 6-16 and there was plenty of space for all of us. Everything we needed was in the apartment from a washing machine to fans in the rooms, which we certainly needed in the evenings, sun loungers and everything you could wish for in a kitchen. The location was perfect with wonderful views across a small bay and beach which we found was great for an early evening dip. During the day you can jump into the sea from small jettys dotted along the coastline. Great for adventurous kids ! This was all a five minute walk away. We walked everywhere which wasn't a problem at all. The local beach resort was a fifteen minute slow walk but very enjoyable whatever time of day we did it. We would set off in the morning for a day out and walk to the main town. Here was a fab beach with inflatables for the children and dozens of classy bars restaurants and shops. You can hop on a small ferry here and take the 15 minute boat trip to beautiful Trogir town, full of history, restaurants, cafes, bars and shops. We did this on a few occasions in the evening and sampled Croatian music and dancing. We caught the bus to the city of Split. Worth a visit but very busy at the bus station with back packers. In all I would highly recommend this apartment, location and holiday destination. We had one of our best ever holidays here and I am sure we will return one day. On another note we found the whole area very cheap to eat out, drink and shop for food. Ice-creams for the kids worked out around 50p and a pint of beer was less than a pound. There is absolutely loads to do and see in this part of Croatia and not too far from the airport but far enough. We had never visited the country before. The landscape is breathtaking and the Croatian people very welcoming. Well done Alison for offering your lovely holiday home in such a perfect holiday location.

Excellent Property and Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the 8B apartment for two weeks. The apartment was excellent; modern, well equipped and clean! There was some construction activity in the area where the apartment is located, but this was hardly noticeable from the terrace.

We spent the first day at the “secluded beach” but found it worthwhile to spend the 10 minutes it took us to walk to the main beach. It is more convenient for children and also offers more comfort (sun loungers, sunshades, and several beach bars).

Trogir is a beautiful town and we spent some evenings there. It has a huge number of restaurants and we tried a few of the ones that were listed in the “guide” in the apartment. They were all excellent, except from “Jambo” where both food and service level was rather poor. Transport to Trogir is either by taxi (5-0 minutes, 100 Kuna) or by boat (25 minutes, 15 Kuna/person).

We also had a few lunches and dinners at Konoba Rarita (recently renamed from Konoba Korniza) which is located a few minutes walk from the apartment. They served excellent food and provided good service. Highly recommended!

We rented a car for a few days and visited Split (old town), Omis and Krka waterfalls. Krka Waterfalls was a fantastic place and should be considered as a must for everybody to visit. Keep in mind that traffic in Croatia is more or less crazy!

Croatia, Ciovo, and Penthouse Rentals Croatia are excellent choices for a relaxing summer holiday!

Thanks!
