“Hrvoje is an excellent ambassador for Split”
Reviewed May 23, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Last week my husband and I spent four nights in Apartment Pipi. After enquiring from Hrvoje about whether or not airport shuttle buses would be running at almost 10.30 p.m. he said he was almost sure they would but that he would check a few days beforehand. He also offered to meet us at the bus station! We didn’t expect that. He emailed me the day before to say that there would be shuttle buses. He didn’t forget!

As it happened our flight was delayed and I texted Hrvoje to inform him that it would most likely be near midnight before we’d be in Split bus station – that was ok, he said. No problem! So, he picked us up and took us to the apartment. He gave us a quick rundown of necessary information – how the balcony doors worked etc. and offered to come back in the morning at a time of our choosing to give us a little tour!

The next morning at 9.30 Hrvoje took us around to show us the bus stop at the end of the street; where to pick it up in town at the seafront; how to get to the beach and also to the grocery store. He waited while we bought what we needed and took us back to the apartment. Now all of that is what I call above and beyond the call of duty. He was so helpful and generous with his time.

As it happened we didn’t ever use a bus, even though the hill back was a fairly steep climb. It only took about 20 minutes to walk to the Riva and the walking helps keep us fit!

We loved the apartment. Of course, it is not the place to stay if you want to walk out your door and immediately be in the centre of things – but you should know that anyway from the apartment’s description…… and you need to be able to climb the stairs to the fourth floor. However, it is one of the cleanest places I have ever stayed. Hrvoje (and, I think he said, his mother helps) obviously works very hard to maintain high standards. The bed was very comfortable and we really enjoyed that fantastic view from the balcony.

This was our first time in Split and the weather was tremendous – bright, hot and sunny. We liked walking around Diocletian’s palace, loved the welcome from “the emperor himself” at midday, especially the spoken Latin, and the men singing traditional music was a real treat. While I had lovely seafood at Poseidon restaurant, as you would expect with a name like that, my husband, surprisingly, had the best ever pizza there. It looked so good I begged for a piece and could see why he was enjoying it! Walking along the waterfront, sitting people-watching at pavement cafes and a boat trip along the coast were all very enjoyable activities.

If you’re thinking of going to Split, don’t hesitate and don’t hesitate to book Hrvoje’s apartment. On our last day our flight was due to leave at 21.00 hrs. and we planned to get the airport bus back at 18.20. The evening before Hrvoje offered to take our baggage when we were leaving in the morning and keep it for us all day. He brought it to us at the waterfront, opposite the bus stop, just before 18.00 hrs.! And he gave us a parting gift of local chocolate, lavender etc. As I already said, he was most helpful and generous with his time and helped to make our short trip a great success.

We loved this apartment. Very spacious, modern and clean with the most amazing views from the terrace. Hrvoje was a great host, picked us up and then at end of our stay dropped us back to bus. Took us other places as well, so helpful and friendly.
We were able to walk into the town center (15mins ) and down to the beach (10mins).
Thank you Hrvoje for a wonderful stay.

“Great Apartment & Host”

Clean, modern apartment with beautiful views, just a few minutes outside of downtown by bus. Hrvoje is a great host, ready to help with any travel advice in and around Split. After picking us up at the main bus station he provided a quick orientation tour which included local supermarkets, directions to the beach, and local bus stops. All around a great stay and experience.

Hrvoje our host met us at the bus station and gave a tour of the area before taking us to the apartment, showing us the bus stop and local supermarkets as well as access point to the beach. He went the extra mile when I had a gum infection and found a dentist on a Sunday morning, took me there and then to a pharmacy to get antibiotics.
The apartment had all the facilities you would need, wifi was fast and air con very effective. Sitting out on the balcony with a glass of wine watching the sunset was perfect.
It is on the 4th floor with no lift, but the stairs helped work off the food and wine.

“Great host, great apartment and a great position to visit the best of Split”
Reviewed October 9, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Hrvoje is a brilliant host - and not just for his great knowledge of European football! He met us off the airport shuttle and immediately provided us with an orientation tour of Split and the area around the apartment. The apartment itself is superb. The communal stairs and landing feature stainless steel, glass and polished marble. The apartment is on the fourth floor. There is no lift but this is not a problem as Hrvoje insisted on carrying our cases. It has a large lounge and well-equipped kitchen, a good size double bedroom and beautifully appointed bathroom. Then there are the balconies. One facing south gets the sun most of the day - and the view is just stunning. The other terrace faces west and catches the evening sun.
As for the location - perfect. Ten or fifteen minutes walk from the hurly burly of Split centre and a vast choice of great restaurants. Situated in an affluent area just minutes from the hills, trails and pathways of the beautiful Marjan forest and five minutes from the beach overlooked by the gallery of local sculptor Mestrovic. Can't be faulted.

“Very modern clean apartment ideal for 2”
Reviewed September 18, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Apartment Pipi is lovely & clean with all mod con's needed on a week break (no washing machine), with excellent views & 15 mins walk from town. The walk is slightly longer on the way back uphill mind you & with that is the only negative as it is on the 4th floor with no lift so you need to be capable of negotiating the stairs. Hvroje is very helpful showing us around the local area on the first day in his car & waiting outside a nearby supermarket as we done a little shop. Split has plenty to offer for those looking to relax & walk about enjoying the history & scenery with all the nearby islands, not sure it would be good for young families or those that lounge on the beach but that's personal choice.

Would highly recommend this letting. Perfect apartment with great views, very clean and well equipped apartment. Horjve picked us up from bus station and showed us around split. He checked in with us discreetly to make sure all was well. He gave us our privacy throughout stay. About 15 minute walk from old town but bus was good. Left us a lovely little honeymoon gift which kind.
