We started our island hopping adventure in Split and stayed at Niksas place for two nights. When we first arrived in Split we tried our best to find his place by ourselves, being the stubborn people we are! However after realising that the road names on the map didn't necessarily mean that's where they were we gave up and rang Niksa! He directed us up the road we were hanging around on and then we heard a loud 'JAMES!!' Niksa came running to us and was so happy to see us! Such a lovely welcome, He then guided up and around some cobbled passageways to find the entrance to his place. There is no way we would have found it by ourselves! He then gave us a guided tour and filled us in with all the Croation gossip! Although our stay didn't include breakfast, he so kindly puts on a lovely spread in the communal area just to be a good host! There is fresh and juicy strawberrys, bowls of cherries, sweet pastries, cereals and fresh coffee! Perfect. So each morning we would come down and make a little platter, then take it up to our balcony where we could enjoy it in the sunshine! He also offered us a lovely bottle of wine to enjoy on our balcony! Niksa is in and out but when you catch him his great company and has many many stories!!!
As we were the only people in the block at the time of our arrival, Niksa showed us all the rooms before and said we could have our pick! Which was great. The room is neat but for a quick 2 night stay was perfect with beautiful views and a great shower! And the bed, well you won't get a nights sleep like it! Niksa even showed us the diagram of how the mattress was made as it's the best memory foam you can get!
Location wise, it's perfect. You are a 30 second walk from the BEST restaurant (Konaba Matejuska!!) and from another 4 top rated restaurants. It's a 5 min walk to the palace and a 10 min walk to the port. There are lovely walks all around the area so it's just a great place to be!
