My wife and infant son recently completed a one week stay in lovely Split and the only bad thing I have to say about this place is that it was so nice that we often didn't want to leave! In all seriousness, the owners made it a snap to rent this place. We paid ahead of time via paypal and arrived via driver from Dubrovnik whereby the owner spoke with our driver on the phone giving him directions and actually met us at the top of the street and assisted us with our baggage to the apartment. This was certainly appreciated and frankly unexpected. The owners were easy to deal with, responded quickly and even fixed the washer while we were there and purchased detergent for our use. They even bought for us milk and left us a Graco crib knowing we had an infant with us. The apartment is a spacious two bed two bath unit on the third floor on Hrjojeva (sp?) Street which literally looks upon the outer walls of Diocletian's palace. The kitchen and baths are renovated nicely. There's cable tv, a sectional couch, a nice dining table and two bedrooms, one with a queen and one with two twins so this place is excellent for a family. It's on a pretty quiet block at night and there's a daily market all day on the street, selling t-shirts, clothing etc. and there are supermarkets within walking distance as well as the green market around the corner. The heart of old town is literally like a one minute walk, if that (its actually like less than 300 feet or so) out of the apartment and the main harbor, including ferries, trains and taxis is less than five minutes away, if that. Also close by is the Riva where you can do all the people watching. In addition, you have Bacvice beach, a pretty nice public beach within about a 15 minute walk. I was told prior to my week in Split that I was staying there too long, however, Split is a wonderful city with direct access to ferries to many islands and bus excursions. We went on to Hvar for a night and there was so much more we could have done, but the apartment was so lovely we generally hung around old town and went back to the apartment. We even bought fish one day at the fish market in old town and prepared it at the apartment. The owner leaves a very handy guide in the apartment with her recommendations as to where to eat, drink, banks, pharmacies, markets, etc., and we found many of these eating recommendations to be spot on. Especially the pizza at the golden palace (zlatna vrata) in which you can eat world class pizza in a wonderful romanesque courtyard....and Stellon at Bacvice. There are two CRT tvs, with a good selection of channels and also wifi access. This was the nicest place I found other than a hotel in Split. Just a wonderful place, one which I would return to if we ever go back to Split. By the way, Ingrid, our infant son took his first steps in your apartment!
