I really enjoyed the hospitality of Nikola and Davor. They recommended great places to eat at as well as dishes to order. Everything was within a 5 to 20minute walk. You are next to a beautiful nature park that overlooks the city and has a cafe at the top. The apartment (flat) was lovely with a kitchen, refrigerator, hot water, dishes, etc. It had a lovely decor, a hair dryer, wifi, etc. There is a nice terrace garden. When it gets cold you have a heater. I would definitely stay again!

Location: Perfect, a 2 minute walk to the centre of it all and yet so quiet at night. Close to laundromat, shops, old town. Secure and safe area.

Accommodation: We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment with 2 bathrooms for our family of 5. Nicola put a third bed in the 2nd room so great for the 3 kids. People have complained about the hot water but we didn't have any trouble and we were here for 3 nights.

Other: Free wifi, Nicola happy to share best restaurants which we tried and they were great, very clean rooms, one incident with one room leaking after a massive storm (amazing thunder and lightning) was dealt with quickly and efficiently so you can't ask for better than that.

Perfect for self-sufficient travellers. Simple and comfy.

this was a great value for me for four nights in Split. It is a family owned and operated establishment, and the garden apartments are beautifully situated with terraces trailing grapes. A great place to enjoy a glass of wine. I was lucky enough to be treated to grapes in season, and even plums! To boot, there is even a great common area with bbq overlooking the ocean if you are not lucky enough to have a room with your own terrace.
Wifi worked great. I arrived late, so I think I was left to figure out some things on my own (for example, I didn't know how to reach the owner for questions until I read another review- just ring the buzzer, it appears to go right to Nikola's phone!). And he is always available.
Don't go further than the restaurant down the street for reasonably priced seafood and local Croatian cuisine - Fife.
The fourth night I was moved to a small room off site, and I actually preferred this room as a solo travler. In the cottage, I felt a little small for the spaciousness of the apartment (three twin beds in the room and full kitchen). But, for either, the price was perfect and good value for the money. The harbor and palace are literally a five minute walk, laundry is around the corner, and the steps to Marjan are behind the "hotel".
At night, close the window and shutters and you won't hear a sound.
My lesson learned here: apartments for rent in Croatia are truly that, more than bed and breakfasts. You will not have toiletries provided- I had to run out to buy soap for the shower.
The only other consideration is that, for more than one person, you may need to reheat the water between showers. There was barely enough hot water in the tank for my shower - if shaving as well, it was cool at the end. Also, as an apartment, there is not daily cleaning service: make your own bed and do your dishes!

Stayed for a few nights going to & from the islands. The location is fantastic, easy walking distance to everything. The rooms/bathrooms are basic but spotlessly clean. We saw the cleaning lady check every piece of crockery/cutlery in the kitchen prior to the next occupants moving in. The owner is absolutely wonderful. Nothing is too much trouble for him to make your stay enjoyable. His favourite expression seems to be "no problem"......whatever you ask for, he will organise! A couple of handy things to know - he will let you store luggage in a locker if you are coming back and don't need to take everything with you. Also, he can organise his brother to drive you to the airport, ferry terminal etc for a small fee.

If you dont need a lavish hotel then seriosuly consider staying here. You will recieve local advice from the owner and he will be of great help if its your first time in Croatia. Location is fantasti too.

The decor of the rooms is OK, but considering the cost this is one real bargain!
