  • 5 of 5

Marko's place was as beautiful as it shows in the photos and our hostess Dada was very helpful and welcoming. The place was clean and charming and had all we needed for our stay. Highly recommend 😉

Great Location, Disappointing Apartment

  • 3 of 5

The apartment worked for us but we probably wouldn't stay there again. When we arrived and were able to check in, Lada (a very nice woman) met us at the apartment to give us the keys. The listing doesn't indicate this, but building has numerous other permanent residents and we were disappointed to see dog poop in the front courtyard and various large laundry lines. The listing also indicates there is parking access but it was impossible to find street parking anywhere remotely close to the apartment. We had to park many blocks away whenever we used the car, so having a car is not a good idea. Without a car, no problem. More importantly, the "unit" actually consists of two separate apartments. The kitchen and main living room and one bedroom are separate (with its own locking door from the outer hallway) from the other bedroom and bathroom, so one couple did not have access to the kitchen and living area without having to knock on the door and disturb the other couple to open the door to let us in to the main apartment area. There was little extra toilet paper and the rug in the bedroom was quite dirty. Excellent shower and bathroom facilities. Beds were comfortable. Lada was a very friendly but spent little time explaining how things in the apartment (washing machine, dish washer, AC controls, etc) worked. She basically gave us the keys, asked if we had any questions, and left the rest up to us. There is no clothes dryer. The door knob on the second apartment came loose when we initially closed the door. Overall, we were not impressed with the apartment(s) however the location is quite excellent as it is literally steps to the Old Town area. In addition, Marko, the owner, was very responsive and friendly in setting up the booking.

Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Split at the apartment! It was very comfortable and well decorated. It was very close to restaurants and we loved walking and exploring the city using the flat as our home base.

Great little gem!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. The location is terrific with the Golden Gate literally 2 minutes away. The place is really well designed, maintained (with well functioning AC!) and clean. Marko and Lada were VERY responsive before and during our stay. The only slight comment is that the outdoor space isn't something you would want to spent time in. Then again, we were busy in the Old Town most of the time anyways. We would stay here again if in Split.

beautiful and well located

  • 5 of 5

We were a bit concerned upon drive up- but the flat was impeccable. I want the decorators to come to my home! Very nice linens as well. My only comment on linens is that I found Europeans don't have washcloths - this was consistent at all properties - maybe have a few for your American travelers? Loved!!! the collection of classical music. The property was very well located for shopping and the promenade. Lada the property manager was also very kind and helpful. The property owner was always quick to return my emails.
