“Excellent holiday, accommodation & location exceeded all our expectations”
Reviewed July 12, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This was the first holiday that we booked everything direct, flights, accommodation, rental car. On arrival we were met by Vinko and his wife, who provided a very warm welcome and couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable and comfortable including wifi access. The accommodation was very modern, clean and has good facilities, kitchenette electric shower, local shops, restaurants and cash points. Podstrana is a quiet seaside location with good bus service but we would recommend that you hire a car to see all that Croatia can offer. Split is only a 20 minute car drive and would recommend going to Marjan forest to see view from top. Vinko recommended some stunning locations to visit which we did, but also found Omis, Trogir and Sibenik. The Croatian people are very friendly, helpful and speak very good English especially the younger people in the cities & towns. We throughly enjoyed our visit to Croatia and look forward to a return visit in the future.

“Highly Recommended”
Reviewed September 27, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We have just got back from staying in this lovely apartment and couldn't fault it at all. It was clean and modern and had everything we needed for a week's self catering break.

Vinko and his wife were very welcoming, friendly and helpful with local knowledge. They even surprised us one day with a lovely bowl of salad vegetables from their garden.

The apartment had views to the mountains at the back and the sea (with a few buildings in the way) at the front. The sun came into our bedroom in the mornings. It was less than five minutes to walk to the beach under the underpass. We hired sun beds from a local hotel on the beach. I would recommend wearing shoes to swim as there were urchins which you wouldn't want to stand on and it is stoney not sandy but the sea is so clear and clean and calm as it is almost a lagoon here as it is surrounded by islands.

We ate most nights at Jure Restaurant on the beach and watched the sun setting - amazing. Also it is worth looking out at the stars at night - they are amazing too!!

We took Euros but hardly used them - just for the taxi (pre booked with Vinko) from the airport and a boat trip we did from Split. There are cash machines everywhere and I would recommend getting local currency from there.

Bring your own tea bags as the ones in the supermarket are so weak.

The country is beautiful and the people are friendly we hope to return soon.

“Beautiful apartment & a great base for exploring Split”
Reviewed June 1, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

person found this review helpful

Vinko & Kate couldn't have been more helpful. They gave us plenty of towels, recommended restaurants, gave us info on transport (ferries/buses/airport transfer) & there is a good selection of leaflets of the local area to get you started. It is a 30min bus ride from the main centre of Split, so it's away from the busy town, but has enough bars & restaurants to walk to locally so you don't need to always go into Split.
The apartments are beautifully clean & equipped with all mod cons e.g dishwasher, air con. The kitchen is well equipped so that you can cook a full meal. Bathroom is modern with a good power shower, bedroom light and airy & we were provided with extra blankets if we got cold. Also with lovely balconies to enjoy eating al
fresco. There is a lovely pebble beach a 2 min walk from the apartment with a few bars and restaurants that sell ice creams too. There are lots of little coves with beaches all the way along the coast. Very tranquil & relaxing.
There is also a good supermarket 5mins walk from the apartment with a deli counter for meats/cheese/bread everything you need (apart from tea bags so don't forget those!). If you are looking for a base to explore Split & the surrounding areas that's away from the hustle & bustle of the main town I would absolutely recommend staying at this gorgeous, friendly apartment.

“Apartment in Podstrana near Split, Croatia.”
Reviewed April 21, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The apartment was spotlessly clean and well fitted out. The host, Vinko, could not have been more helpful with advice on buses and ferries and places to visit. I could not recommend this venue more. We had a great week. We would visit again next week if we could.

“The best apartments that I've ever been to!!!!!”
Reviewed October 8, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Just one word to say: EXCELLENT!!!!
These are one of the best apartments that I've ever been to. These are like brand new apartments with all new, modern equipment, LCD TV's , A/C, flat top stove card key..... Very clean, very modern, nice size of balcony from where you can enjoy your view and have a morning coffee or tea. Close to the stores and only 3-5 minutes away from the beach. We were really enjoying our stay there and the owner and his family were more that polite , friendly and helpful with everything that we needed from them. We would come back here definetely.
Thanks for a great time and all the best in a future.

“Wonderful stay just outside Split”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Imagine our surprise when we found ourselves staying in a beautiful, brand new one bedroom apartment! A five minute stroll to the beach, and easy bus access to Split, this rental really is the best of both worlds. Vinko is a most helpful and accommodating host.
