“Fantastic position”
Reviewed 13 July 2010

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.

We stayed for 2 nights at Villa Jerkan and I wish we could have stayed longer. The location is good for people who want easy access to the tourist sites in Split but want to stay in a quiet location. And the hotel is directly on a nice sheltered pebble beach which is good for swimming or snorkeling. There is a supermarket about 200 meters from the hotel and 3 restaurants within walking distance. We especially liked "Jure". If you want more selection, you'll need to go in to Split. A bus runs at least twice an hour to Split so even without a car it's quite accessible (but a car would make it easier). The rooms are very comfortable, spotless and well equipped. If rooms facing the ocean have a lovely view from their balcony. WiFi in the lobby/bar area is convenient too, just wish it extended to the rooms. The best part of the experience, though, is the warm care you receive from the owner. He really goes to great lengths to make sure all needs are met and that you feel well taken care of. I have stayed in dozens of 4 and 5 star hotels for both work and leisure travel and I have rarely received such good service - it's more like staying with family than staying in a vacation apartment.

My partner & I stayed at villa jerkan for a week and thoroughly enjoyed it - we had a top floor apartment- the view was fantastic but it did take 74 stairs to arrive there- however we coped! The owner was a very sociable gentleman and the apartment was very clean.
It is a very quiet area with only a few restaurants close by - we would reccomend Marios which had a good menu and sociable staff.

Crazy - shouldnt be taking booking at this time of year, as we were the only people there for most of the time the restaurant and bar down stairs were closed ! the hotel pretty much locked up and told to lock the frount door when we went out !! Maddness. The details said that there was resturants and bars near .... 20 min hard walking got you to 3 restaurants !! I dont mind quiet but this was just silly ! thank god for the number 60 bus !! Felt being charged for a better room was dreadful as there was no one else staying !! - if he isn't going to open up fully he shouldn't open at all ! Probably a nice place when open !!! It was clean but didnt change sheets towels and told us where the big bins were so we could put any rubbish out ourselves ! So I paid for nothing really - it was a look after yourself holiday !"

Reviewed 28 October 2008

The 5th floor apartments have wonderful balconies with terrific sea views,the hotel being on the edge of the ocean. It also has a terrace and pier reaching out into the sea.Podstrana itself is really a busy main road suburb of Split but once down the lane to the hotel it,s peaceful. There are 3 or 4 restaurants 15 mins walk along the beach and a coffee shop/snack bar 5 mins in the other direction. A good supermarket is close by back on the main road plus bus stops to Split etc. The proprietor is very friendly and can airport transfer. Apartments are clean and very well-equiped.Downside,there is very little nightlife nearby if that is your thing and the hotel bar opens when the owner feels like it! But if a quiet relaxing break is what you,re after this could be you what you,re looking for.

  • Disliked — No lift to 5th floor.
