From our arrival to our departure Marija and her family could not have been more friendly and helpful , and really went out of their way to be accommodating. The apartment was excellent for the 2 of us, very high standard of cleanliness and upkeep. We enjoyed the fact their was a great balcony to eat out, and another area to sit. The apartment was really well situated for the beaches and swimming, as well as the restaurants, bars and public transport. We were really impressed with Stobrec and ease using public transport to get into Split and other attractions.
We had a fantastic holiday and would definitely recommend. Thanks for making it so good.
Spent a week in this rental in August 2018. The owners couldn't have been more accommodating and welcoming!! They picked me up from the airport and offered to get me to my ferry when I was departing. They cooked me a beautiful and tasty meal the last night of my trip and had the apartment stocked with a few beverages and fruit when I arrived. Apartment is comfortable and very close to everything you need... groceries, bus station, beach, bakery, etc. Had a wonderful vacation in Split / Stobrec... highly recommend this location!!
Pros: Great location. Very close to the bus & beach. Best little bakery right down the street!!! Very nice hosts :)
Went to a wonderful new restaurant Bistro Luka - delicious food & romantic atmosphere overlooking the beach (same owner as the #1 Konoba Nicola). All 5-10 min walking distance from apartment.
Cons: To be fair, we found this to be the case in other places throughout Croatia & Montenegro, the beds & pillows are of poor quality - hard as a board :(
The weather was VERY hot when we were there & the portable/wall air conditioning unit is located only in the “living/kitchen” area (again it’s like that in other apartments), so to get any air into the room we had to leave the ac running 24/7 & the doors to the bedrooms had to be left open. Also, since nobody owns driers, the towels are air dried & feel like sandpaper.
But we got used to everything & were happy to have a quiet base to come back to after a busy & hot day exploring ;)
We stayed in this apartment for two weeks. It is perfectly located in Stobrec, you can reach everything you need by foot. Two beaches, restaurants, playground, supermarket and the bus station are all max. five minute walk away.
The apartment itself is small but sufficient. Everything is clean, the kitchen provides all you need and it is very nice sitting outside on the big balcony overlooking the bay and the hills. The only thing we were missing was a dish washer.
Also, sharing the apartment with two small familys (4 parents and 2 kids) was a bit much, but if you are there as one family or friends you're fine.
Saving the best for last: Marija, Zoran and their family are wonderful hosts! They have picked us up and dropped us off at the airport in the very early morning and provided us with everything we wished for: additional blankets, additional chairs... - no problem! Greeting us was a local schnapps and two bottles of beer, and one time they were cooking typical croatian food for us, even though they couldn't join us for dinner because they had a family matter to attend. They were always up for a small chat, very nice with the kids, who loved them, and we very much enjoyed being there.
All in all, we can really recommend a stay in this apartment with this family.
We stayed in this apartment in June 2018. Locationwise it is very accessible for Split which has loads going on and the bus stop is only a few minutes away. The local area is quite low key with a good balance of bars and restaurants with decent food.
Our hosts were great. They provided a welcome pack and despite Easyjet delays on the outward journey collected us from the airport and dropped us off again for a nominal amount. Unexpectedly they also cooked a delicious meal of bream with beans and potatoes together which is typically Croatian dish. There were no communication difficulties as we managed on various family members' English (full marks to their teenage daughter) and my limited German as well as our attempts at Croatian.
The apartment was very clean and easy to maintain. The balcony area provides good shelter from strong sun and there is plenty of space to have a meal or drinks. The kitchen is well enough equipped with pot and pans to cook a range of dishes. The beds were comfortable and there is adequate wardrobe space for clothes.
We recommend this apartment and hope to return.
