We recently stayed (only) one night at one of the apartments "Gajeta" in Split while in Croatia on our honeymoon. After spending the previous week on a sailboat, (and arriving after a tough bus ride from Sibinik) it was a treat to find such a lovely, clean, and spacious apartment. There were even little treats on the pillows. The design and layout were stylish and thoughtful. There was a full kitchen -- which we didn't use -- that would have been helpful if we did want to cook. Everything is very new, very clean, and very well thought-out.
In fact, the entire apartment was so absolutely spotless -- it felt so clean and well maintained that our room rivaled "luxury" hotels in other cities we stayed visite.
The air conditioning was working perfectly (great since it was so hot outside) and the hot water never ran out (2 of us were staying there). The location was perfect -- tucked away on a tiny side street just steps from all the action. The linens and bedding were very fresh, new, and beautiful. It looks like a lot of thought went into the details of the place.
I loved the entrance -- it felt like living in a real apartment like a local (in fact, some of the apartments in the building were not part of the agency's vacation rental list). Be prepared for some stairs.
The gentleman (his name is Jerko) in the management office, (one block away from the apartment) was very helpful with whatever we asked of him including retrieving our left-behind passports (!) and having them put on the next bus to Dubrovnik after we had left town. That averted a possible disaster for us -- Jerko is a virtuoso of guest service! Our passports miraculously arrived in Dubrovnik just a few hours after we did, allowing us to enjoy our last night on our honeymoon.
We highly recommend this place!
