We have just spent a week at Villa Jerkan and had a wonderful time. We were picked up by car for a comfortable journey to the hotel and were really happy when we arrived and were shown to our room...number 16, second floor. The view from our good size balcony was amazing, forward looking over the Adriatic and to the right we could see Split in the distance. No extra charge for this view, it comes as standard!! The whole hotel was so clean, every day the place was cleaned top to bottom and twice during our week the towels were changed. There is not much to do in Podstrana, you can lay on the sunbeds on the private 'beach' (not sand unfortunately, more like gravel) or take a walk along the waterside path to a local coffee bar or three nearby restaurants for meals in the evening. We found it really relaxing, we all just chilled out. There is a good bus service to Split, buses run twice an hour and the bus stop is close by. There is also a private bus that runs and it is a little bit cheaper! From Split you can do sightseeing, take a boat trip around the islands...and eat cheaply at some amazing restaurants. The market seemed to be open every day for cheap shopping...if you haven't taken them with you, you can buy beach shoes here for 50 kuna...a must on the beach back at Podstrana.
For food there is a local supermarket and we found most things that we needed. You will need to do your own breakfast, we did not find anywhere to eat out in the morning NOTE: cooking facilities are just two hot plates, no oven, so you will be having a continental style breakfast or cereal! Good size fridge so room for the essentials and beer! Two litres of beer worked out around £3.00.
Jerko, the owner, is a character...very friendly and chatty. Just ask and he will do what he can to help or provide. We wanted to use the oven in the hotel kitchen which was not a problem as long as we left it clean and tidy.
All in all this was one of the best holidays that we have had.
