The family here was so lovely and so helpful! Make sure you double check though the distance from split. It's quite far

Great family run hostel, away from the busy city centre but well connected by local buses. Rooms are spacious and have a balcony overlooking the coast, it's easy to get to other areas outside of the city, such as Kliss Fortress (a must!) Family are very helpful, professional and welcoming, picked us up from the train station on arrival and dropped us off at the bus stop when we left. There's a supermarket nearby and it's only 30 minutes away from the city centre or airport.

Super friendly people and recommendable for everyone who wants to meet authentic croatien people. Difficult to find, look for the signs on the left sight of the street

Set right between Split airport and downtown, this guesthosue is set at the bottom of the hills. A great location, if you don't mind the 15 min drive to downtown. Giovanna and her husband are great hosts, great hospitality: we felt very welcome at this family run guesthouse. Amazing value for money.

One of the best places my girlfriend and I have stayed at. We had trouble locating the place at first. Google Maps couldn't find it nor did the locals know about it. It is tucked away off the main road. We got in contact with the owner and she graciously gave us a lift to the guesthouse. Apart from that, we had a wonderful time. It's a family owned place and every member was lovely. Our room was beautiful as was the view from the balcony. We will definitely be returning.

Thank you very much for everythIng. We were lost and the host picked we up. A very nice family, and her husband drove us to the bus station the morning after. The host has offered us an welcoming drinking, and she helped us to organise our travel. I recommend!

Lovely apartment, great view. Hard to find but staff came to find us when we were lost. Wifi didn't work - which was a huge pain as we needed to book lots of things and had to pay to get internet at a nearby cafe instead. Wasn't a hostel. Advertised as 4 beds but there were 2 doubles. Only a problem if people don't like spooning like we do :) hot water ran out after one shower and we didn't know we needed to switch on the boiler. Quite far from Split.Nevertheless, beautiful room and facilities.

Was at a different place than indicated. The landlady was friendly and there was a very nice view from the balcony over the city to Split and the sea. Place was really worn down, with a lot of stuff (clothes etc) that seem to belong to someone else in the room. Overall it was quite dirty and dusty. Towels snelles after cigarette smoke. Would not stay here again

Hosts of the place are very lovely and welcoming, we felt like at home there. Although, you should know that air conditioning means only a fan, private bath room is actually a common bathroom on the corridor and 5 minutes to the bus and the beach is actually at least 15 minutes, on a hot day a lot more. But, if you don't mind these things (we didn't that much), it is a lovely place to stay, nice surroundings in a quiet zone and a good value for money.

We stayed at Giovanna's sister's house where the family made us feel so welcome - providing a wonderful dinner and endless cold beers. You could not wish for better hosts! The location is outside Split on top of a hill with wonderful views. Ideal for those who want to avoid the hectic city, but not for people in a hurry, even though the family kindly picks guests up and off at the nearest bus station by car. Again for the wonderful company of the family -highly recommended!

Giovanna and her family are amazing hosts. We had a good time there. They were always making sure we had everything we needed. We had our own "small" apartment, with a good kitchen and bathroom. The place is a little outside from Split, but if you have a car, it is a great option. Getting to Split by bus is also very easy. Good stay.

Lovely people!!! I wish them the best! They give us wine, they give us dinner and a great company! I love it there!!

Worst location. The instructions to get there are terrible, the locals were much more helpful. Have to cross a big road to get to the bus stop, and cars will not stop for you. Family made a great dinner one night for all the guests. A LOT of cats around the house, although they don't let them inside. Wi-fi not good upstairs. With the bus is over 30 minutes to get to Split...so I'd recommend spending more money to be closer.

This is heartwarming guesthouse, the staff is very sweet and attentive!!! You feel a lot like home while staying here. The room we stayed in was good, and the balcony had a very nice view. The location is not to good, because it's a bit far from Split, but for one night it's very good!

Giovanna was such a lovely lady, she has a nice little business! The room was excellent and had a great balcony and view. It's about a 40 mins ride from split, good for a bit of chill out time if you are on your travels!

The location was pretty far out, but Giovanna came to pick me up from the bus station and drop me off the next morning. I was there only a little time, but a very friendly family, they offered me some homemade liqueur and very interested in me and my travels. Maybe not the best place to meet other travellers. For facilities, I think I was sleeping in their sons bedroom while he took the couch, which was a bit different.

Had such a warming stay. The hospitality I received was absolutely outstanding. The family who own the property really go above and beyond to make the stay enjoyable. It was like being at home but in another country.
