“Hard to find at first, but fantastic base for long weekend in Split”
Reviewed June 6, 2011

Located in Varos district it's about a minute walk from the Riva, but in a great little neighbourhood with some terrific restaurants like Sperun and Perun within 30 secs walk. We stayed in the apartment which was a bit extra but was worth it for the extra space, kitchen and roof terrace overlooking the Varos area. Joanne and her son were really helpful and looked after us so well. Great choice for Split if you're looking for somewhere comfy and a home from home. Only downside was parking is a bit tricky if youve got a car and there isn't wi fi Internet, but those are minor quibbles for a place for a long weekend.

A great location right in the centre of Split, within five minutes walk of the Palace and Riva and ferry terminal. We drove in and parking was a bit of a nightmare. But Joanne carefully described some places to park and eventually we got a place, although a fair walk from the Villa. It would be far easier if you had arrived by boat or taxi!

Room was very clean and the bathroom was very smart. Not the biggest but ok for us. Only down side was the noise of the neighbours constantly chatting away in their courtyard. We were constantly shutting the window to block out their noise and then opening it again cos it got too warm!

Not many choices in town for breakfast but a few restuarants/cafes near by that are recommended by Joanne.

This guesthouse in the walking distance from the harbor and Diocletian’s Palace is in lovely narrow streets. Rooms are very clean and well appointed.

I stayed at the Villa Varos with my boyfriend in June 2010 for one night, the service cleanliness was top notch. As not many reviews had been written we were a little concerned but they absolutely exceeded our expectations. As it was my Birthday they even bought us some local wine and chocolates which was very kind.
I cannot recommend these apartments highly enough, they are obviously quite basic but the air con worked and the shower was very powerful. The location was great and the team were very friendly and helpful.
Would go back again if ever in Split again.

Stayed here at the beginning of our trip to Croatia and was very pleased with what we got. We booked the apratment as there wasnt any rooms left and it was really nice! It was 209 Euros per night but you got a large living room/ sofa area, double bedroom, bathroom, dining area and balcony with seating. The rooms were nicely furnished and extremely clean.

The apartment could easily sleep four people comforatbly as the living room sofa was a double sofa-bed.

Included in the kitchen area was a frdige and kettle.

location is excellent as 3 minutes from the palce area and not noisy at all.

The service wasnt brilliant as I dont think the son really has a passion for customer service. We got everything we needed however so cant really complain about this, he just could have smiled more!

We really enjoyed our stay in Split at the Villa Varos. We let Joanne know when we would be arriving so that she could expect us, and she met us promptly and showed us to our room. She also kindly reassured us that we had parked our rental car legally (we found the parking situation in Split to be very confusing!) We were impressed with the room, which included a large bathroom. The bed was very comfortable. The location is tucked away on a side, residential street, very close to Diocletian's Palace and also close to the ferry terminal. I really enjoyed our location and felt like we had a much more genuine, personal experience than we would have had if we stayed in a larger, more formal hotel.

Villa Varos has a lot of character and is an excellent value. I highly recommend staying here if you want to experience Split like a local.
