The fantastic sandy beach with shallow water makes this paradise for parents with young children, and is a mere 5/10minute walk from the house .
Teenagers will have a blast attending all summer parties in the region ,
while the elderly can visit an infinity of cultural sites, including day trips to Dubrovnik or the islands and but those looking for an adventurous vacation have plenty to do here, from rafting on Cetina
hiking the surrounding mountains
rock climbing,
para sailing,
windsurf ,
wake boarding , kite surfing or renting a boat( with or without skipper) to go up the river or roam the islands.
Something for everyone.
If some evening action is needed, other than restaurants, evening walks, bars and cafes, Split is merely a 30 minute drive away , and all can be found there from Movie complexes to major shopping malls.

The river / sea setting of the house is the perfect combination of beach during the day and taking in the evening breeze while enjoying a glass of wine on the balcony or the porch.

The third floor balcony is perfect for breakfast and evening hangouts while enjoying the surrounding views. Conveniently located between Split and Dubrovnik, Omis is currently the HOT SPOT in Europe to be!

                          20 Minutes drive from Split

                          Split has multiple daily ferry connections to several Italian Cities and all the Islands.

                          Dubrovnik is a 2 hour drive while daily cruisers and boast can take you to any of the desired Islands, being Vis, Brac (Bol with it special beach) being the closest. Hvar is a mere 1 hr boat ride away!

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1999

                          About the owner: We are expats from NYC , a multi ethical & cultural family living in Croatia since 2003. Being both Tomo and myself active in the entertainment industry for years, Omis became our ' quiete haven' while still living in NYC , when we would spend the summer school vacation months in Omis/ Split. We have travelled and still are, around the world, but always spend 4 weeks a year In Omis. Its natural beauty is un paralleled! While others love it to go out party , Brac & Hvar rule the European party scene, but for us it is total recovery mode before school and work season starts in september.

                          Why the Owner Chose Omis:
                          Everyone needs a save haven to recover from the hectic city lights. Omis is just that, but with the convenient big city and bright lights near enough when Peace and Quiet becomes too much....

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          After vacationing in Omis since 1999, we are still mesmerized by the incredible scenery in this region. The mountains look painted on to the sky, while the fresh evening river breeze makes AC unnecessary the sky behind the Rive and Sea. It is so surreal and the scenery seems taken from a fairy tail picture book. We decided in 2012 to renovate the house to add some luxury to this perfect home for additional enjoyment and extended stays. We will always spend the last 2 weeks of August in our amazing beach house.
