“Nice Stay in Podstrana”
Reviewed 2 November 2011

We stayed at Villa Jerkan in October 2011. Jerko (owner) was there to greet us and made us feel very comfortable. We were looking for a quiet holiday and certainly got that as we were the only people in the building.
The apartment had an awesome balcony with great views up and down the coast. Everything was clean and bright.
The location was right on the beach and within easy driving distance to Krka, Split, Trogir and some mountain hiking.
Jerko (owner) did a great job of providing for all our needs. Thanks for the wine Jerko!

We have spent 7 days in Villa Jerkan. Owner is really good old fashioned guy from travell industry, does everything to make the guest happy. Studio room is OK, however there is no microwave oven, dishwasher and coffee machine. The see is usally clean, unless the wind blows from Split, but it is still OK. A good location to make trips with a (rented) car to Split, Trogir, Omis, and even to Makarska, Sibenik and Primosten. Pls. note that payment is preferred in EUR and in CASH. I believe it is a typical value for money place. We booked the trip through booking.com.

Villa Jerkan is quite simply the cleanest place I have ever stayed in. My wife could not believe how clean the communal bar/reception toilet facilities were. The best thing about Villa Jerkan is its location and proximity to the beach which is never crowded.The crystal clear sea is safe to swim in. It does have some seaweed later on in the day but this is not an issue. The road behind the hotel is the main route between Split and Omis and is very busy. I stayed on the other side of the road last year and it was a big problem with our children. If you are going to stay in Podstrana this site is the ideal side of the road if you have children. Jerkan is very close to the mini supermarket which which has everything one requires for the stay. There are several excellent restaurants nearby and the walk to Jure and Amigos (the two we liked the best) on an evening as the sun sets is wonderful. Jerkan provides all the sun lounges free of charge and there is ample shade provided on the beach itself if required. The location itself is idyllic. We take wonderful memories home with us. I walked up to old Podstrana on the mountainside which is visible form Jerkan. I wanted to see the church which stands out when looking up at it. I set off just after 8 am and reached the village at 8 50 am. Not a trip for the feint hearted but well worth it as the views it affords are spectacular. Jerko his son Marko and their staff were wonderful hosts. They will collect you from the airport and drop you off for the modest fee of 40 euros each way. We loved it at Villa Jerkan and we cannot wait to return.
One can boil, fry or heat on the two hobs provided but there is no toaster, grill or oven.
Overall we grade this location as excellent for families. Our two boys aged 9 and 7 really enjoyed their stay.

Room Tip: Our room had two balconies and a seperate bedroom for the adults. Air conditioned throughout. Good s...

I know everyone here will rave about Jerko- and he is quite a character- but I have to report that when he came up to our room (we invited him up, as we were drinking beer on the terrace and we had not yet met him), he had some pretty terrible things to say about Jews, America, etc. It was very jarring, particularly because some of us were Jewish. Its a shame because its a great property, but would I stay here again knowing that the owner blames Jewish banks for all world problems? No I would not.

That said if this sort of thing doesnt bother you- its ON the beach, its a clean apartment, great airconditioning, incredible sunset- not the best location as it was very hard to get to, but once you are there, its worth it.

We have just returned from a long weekend where we stayed at the Villa Jerkan in Podstrana. When we arrived we were greeted by the owners son, Marko, who showed us to our room and the private parking a couple of hundred yards away. Marko was extremley pleasant to talk to and helped out by showing where several of the local amenities were. In the evening we were introduced to the owner Jerko who shared a complimentary drink with us and we soon found him to be a extremely pleasant person.

The room in which we stayed was well presented on the first floor of the property with a main balcony out the back and a side background that had beautiful views across the beach and towards Split itself. The appartment was simple yet covered all of ours needs with a very comfortable bed, a lovely bathroom and small kitchenette/eating area. We ate out most meals but this facility did enable us to make breakfast each morning, a godsend as breakfast is often one of the hardest meals to deal with when following a gluten free diet.

As our stay continued we got to know the family owning the property much better as they were always around for a quick chat or to answer a question. They continued to go the extra yard when they produced a cake as Marko had figured out it was my brithday from my passport when taking a copy.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Villa Jerkan and it was a real shame when we had to leave. We would definitely recomend this location for staying of you are visiting the Split region as it is in a great place but above all, the service is amazing!

The self catering apartment was well equipped, spacious and very clean. We could not have had a better view of the sea from our balcony, with only a walkway between the villas and the shore.

The owner and his family came up trumps when my wife tripped on the main road on our way back to the apartment on our second evening. He immediately arranged transport to the hospital, helped enormously when I had to contact our insurance company and was supportive throughout our stay.

Very nice place, the owner Gerry is very friendly, very clean and well presented, goes out onto a nice pebble beach area with deckchairs, nice sea to swim in, some small fish to see as well, bus stop into city about 2 minute walk and costs 10kn (local currency) per person, on return journey bus stop practically outside the villa so great if you have lots of shopping, supermarket about 2min walk as well. very quiet area a few bars and a small pizza place about 10 mins walk away. definatley reccomend the place.
