This apartment is bliss. Lying on the terrace listening to the waves lapping or the boats going out and in the harbour is just so relaxing. Iris and Vedran are perfect hosts even bringing our luggage to the airport as we had a very late flight. Iris left us food on arrival as it was very late. Much appreciated. This apartment is immaculate but the real gem is the tranquility and views to die for. Supermarkets really close by and bus stop to Airport, Trogir or Split just a couple hundred meters. We miss it already.
We loved our time at the Kaštel. The terrace is superb and the apartment perfect. Iris has thought of everything you might need. Lovely little extras such as homemade wine on arrival and freshly picked tomatoes left by the door when we returned from a day out.
Now that I'm home I am missing the sound and sight of the 8pm swifts going to bed as the sun went over the mountain. There's lots to do in the area whether boating, kayaking or visiting nearby towns.
We were lucky to be in Croatia when the World Cup was on and watched their games. Watching the world cup final in Split was amazing but coming back to the apartment and seeing the flares over split harbour and the parties on the beach made it extra special. Thanks to Iris and Vedrun for everything :-)
We stayed at the apartment for three nights in July. It is a beautiful place in a unique setting. We were met by Vredan who owns the apartment and who showed us around. Iris and Vredan had left us juice; wine and chocolates which was so kind, and the apartment was so well equipped. The little kitchen has everything you need if you wanted to cook; the bed is super comfortable; and the bathroom is great with a fantastic power shower.
The terrace is magical - we swam off the side, and watched the boats go by. The umbrella was huge and gave perfect shade, and the sun beds were comfortable. There are a couple of bars and restaurants very close by, and a small supermarket, and a small beach about a five minute walk away. The 37 bus is a three minute walk away, and we used it all the time. It goes to Split and Trogir, both of which are beautiful, and also to the airport all for about £1.40!
There is a beautiful promenade that goes on for about 10km and which runs through the seven small villages and towns along the coast. Iris gave us the number of a brilliant bike hire service (BiBi bikes) and BiBi delivered two great bikes to us and we spent a day out cycling along the seafront stopping off to swim, and for lunch.
All in all, I couldn't recommend the apartment highly enough - it's fantastic and Iris and Vredan are so helpful and have created a wonderful space. Thank you so much Iris and Vredan!
When we booked the apartment in the fortress by the sea, the connection to the GOT was an added appeal. The booking process was straight forward and contact from the owners answering any queries was immediate and informative.
On arriving into Split we decided to use public transport (Number 37 bus) to the apartment however maybe not the best idea in the dark on our first visit as we passed our stop and ended up at the bus terminal in the centre of Split and had to back track, Iris and her husband were very helpful and patient... meeting us off the bus and taking us to the apartment. We were tired and a little bit stressed when we got into the apartment but that quickly went as it had the wow factor and a fridge with some cold beers, milk, bottled water and wine. A lovely touch. The apartment is small but ideal for 2 people and has everything you need. We loved having our breakfast on the patio area and feeding the fish and crabs. We made the most of the morning sun at the apartment as it became shaded around 3pm
There is a local supermarket close by and also a lidl's further on. There are cafe bars and bakeries along the promenade and local bus 37 to Split and Trogir
When we left Split to visit Hvar Iris let us leave our luggage at the apartment and very kindly met us at the airport with it on our return for which we were extremely grateful.
10 out of 10 for both the apartment and the owners.
I did not want to write a review because I want for myself. Myself and my wife loved every minute of it. The apartment was perfect for the two of us. The seating outside was brilliant. It was like having your own aquarium on your door step. The owner could not have done more for us. He met us from the taxi at 11 at night and food milk and wine ready for us because it was late. I would go back in a heart beat
