“Great location!”
Reviewed July 28, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We enjoyed our stay at Venus Apartments and absolutely LOVED Split. A big part of what made our stay memorable was our host, Ksenija. From the time I booked our reservation, she was in regular contact with us, answering questions, recommending tours, etc. She arranged for a driver to pick us up at the airport and was waiting for us at the apartment when we arrived. She walked us through the apartment, explaining everything in detail, then sat down with us, gave us a map of the area along with recommendations on everything from sightseeing, restaurants, shopping, etc. She even brought us some of her homemade Rakija to sample, which was delicious! The apartment is in an ideal location on a safe, quiet street just a few steps away from the Riva. Nice little balcony with a partial view of the sea. The air-conditioning unit is in the dining room. The master bedroom was a bit warmer than the other bedroom, but not unbearable. Ksenija made sure we had a fan in the room to help circulate the air. There's no counter space in the bathroom but there are shelves to put your toiletries on. WiFi worked GREAT. Worth noting, there is no lift so you will have to haul your luggage up a few flights of stairs. Over all, we were happy with our stay there and would recommend it. It's a bit rustic but the price is fantastic and it was nice to have the extra space for less than the cost of a hotel. Special thank you to Ksenija for her warmth and hospitality!

“Wonderful Apartment - Amazing Location”
Reviewed January 25, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

person found this review helpful

I had a long-term fall/winter stay in Ksenija's apartment. The apartment is large, fully equipped for any length of stay and was clean upon my arrival. It has windows facing 3 different directions for beautiful views of the sea, mountains and neighbourhood. I completely recommend this apartment for any length stay in Split.

The location is unbeatable. It is in an old historic neighbourhood called Varoš. It is a one minute walk to the Riva (with all of it's bars) and sea. The historic centre is only 2 minutes away. For walks in nature, Marjan park is 5 minutes away. There are several grocery stores within 5 minutes walk. The bus station and ferry terminal are an easy 10-15 minute walk. Restaurants are everywhere. There is so much nearby the apartment, one does not need a car for anything.

The host, Ksenija is extremely friendly and helpful. She speaks excellent English and is very pleasant and easy to communicate with. She went out of her way to assist me on several occasions. Thank-you Ksenija for my wonderful stay!

“Can't recommend Kseniya's apartment highly enough”

Absolutely perfect location & Kseniya is a wonderful host. The apartment is top floor, spacious, clean and has everything you need. This is one of the few places we have been that we would all love to return to. There is so much to do & see, Kseniya helped us to sort everything that we could wish for. We miss you Kseniya, and your apartment, and Split, we all hope to return. Thank you

What a wonderful base for exploring Diocletian’s magnificent city! This apartment is located on the top floor of a historic home. We were delighted to find that everything is exactly as in the pictures, and the location at the end of Riva could not be more perfect. Air conditioned living area and LOTS of space made us very comfortable after a long day of exploring the ancient city of Split. Every morning we awoke to a breakfast of fresh bread and pastries from the bakery located on the ground floor. We could not have asked for a more perfect experience, nor for more wonderful host. First class from start to finish, and highly recommended!

“Absolutely Great Experience”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

person found this review helpful

Ksenija is a great host. She is very helpful, warm and cares for her guests. The apartment is in a great location. The apartment is very spacious, delightfully decorated with great taste and attention to details. We loved the large kitchen, bedroom, living room areas. Each one of them had plenty natural lighting. The kitchen is very well equipped to make a living. The views from the dining room balcony, the living room and the bedroom are fabulous. The apartment is two doors away from Cafe Feral - great breakfast & cappuccino and friendly staff.

We loved Ksenija's personal attention to details. She let us borrow her laptop to transfer all our precious photos. We were on a 35-day honeymoon so we had tons of photos that we didn't want to lose, so she picked up a USB drive and let us use her laptop to back it up. She even helped us with our luggage after we checked out and walked us all the way to the car rental with our bags. She spent a lot of time and energy to make our stay memorable. It was obvious to us that she really enjoys being a host and cares for her guests.

The Place is a GEM!!

“Spacious and comfortable apartment in a the very center of the old city”
Reviewed June 23, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

person found this review helpful

I would say this experience was the perfect combination of beautiful location and very stylish and comfortable space with just amazing host. The place left us breathless - cause we were delighted to find such spacious and comfortable apartment in a the very center of the old city. The app was absolutely clean, bright and sunny - with astonishing view on the sea.

It is definitely a place you would love to stay for longer period, even make a nest of it to spending there your whole vacation - cause it makes you feel like at home.

Now about our host - Ksenija .. being a licensed tourist guide herself – you will get from her the most useful info about the city and get so many proposals for one day trips in the surroundings of Split , for doing all kind of sports and in general all the things you could do while staying there-that you will have problems deciding which one you should choose.
