“Such a wonderful holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2012

We had read in quite a few places that rooms advertised as 'hotels' were in fact rooms in people's homes! We were a bit concerned that we'd not enjoy Villa Luketa, but it was fantastic!!
It wasn't 5 star, but considering the price, it was clean, had a great layout and all you needed was provided.
The balcony was amazing, we had a beautiful sunset right over the mountains and water every night. There was a bus stop 50yrds away, and supermarkets within walking distance.
The sea was 50m away and such clear blue. Not a sandy beach, but still beautiful. There was a beach bar, jet ski hire and pancakes there also.
We'd recommend it every time. The owners were around if there were problems, but not intrusive.
I can't recommend this place enough for location and service.

very good accomodation, near the beach, not far from Split but still very relaxing and peaceful place. we would like to come back soon. it is the best accomodation for family and couples. you can enjoy in the beautiful nature, view and romantic sunset. having a coffe on our terrace and looking the sea is something that we are not going to forget.

We could not have been within a more pleasant setting in Croatia. Villa Luketa exceeded my expectations; the studio apartment we had was a lot roomier than I had initially thought, clean, tidy and had everything we needed. The most gorgeous view from our terrace looking out to the Adriatic Sea, couldn't get enough of the sunset every night!! I miss our Croatian holiday a lot. What gave our stay at Luketa a special touch was on our last evening before heading out to Split, (just a 30min bus ride from Podstrana) was the lovely owner Ivo giving us each a pretty little Lavnder souvenir sack. Thank you to Ivo and his family for making our summer holiday a real treat.

Comming to Croatia we didn't know what to expect, but now when we came back home I think that I have to share my expirience with others. Beside the beautiful view, vicinity of so many historical and natural sites, beach just bellow the house ( steps were good excercice.. ), parking space, comfortable room, and a sound of the sea what suprised us the most was atmosphere of a home. Family buisnes that developed through the years brought to the situation when Ivo together with his lovely family made us feel like we are staying with the closest ones, and this place is deffinetly one of those that we are going to come back again!

We had a lovely 5 night stay at the Villa Luketa. The apartment was clean, stylish and comfortable, kitchen well equipped. The view from the balcony was incredible. We got much more than we thought we booked. The host was very friendly and helpful. The Villa Luketa is very well located for visiting Split and Omiš with very good bus connection for both cities(every 30 min). If you can manage few steps, I recommend The Luketa Villa wholeheartedly.

For the price we paid, our expectations of Villa Luketa were not very high but when we arrived and were shown to our apartment, first by the family's non-english speaking grandmother and then by Ivo who spoke excellent english, we wondered if we had come to the right place! We had a large double room, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom and, best of all, a terrace that looked out over the main city of Split from across a short stretch of the Adriatic sea and in the evenings we had a perfect view of the sun setting behind the Dinaric Alps. The air-con was an absolute god-send and ensured we had a good night's sleep. The hot water was an issue as there was only enough one quick shower at any time which was fine for a couple but I can imagine would be inconvenient for a family or large group. Ivo directed us to Fabio's pizzeria which, turning right as you leave the building, is just a short 5 minute walk away and is next to the bus stop for Split city centre so very handy for a quick drink while you wait! They served basic but delicious food and drink and the staff were lovely. Ivo also advised us to use the 'Tommi' supermarket which was a 10 minute walk to the left of the building but there were two other equally adequate shops in between for all our basic supplies however Tommi was the only one with a cash machine. The best aspect for us was that we were a 2 minute walk from the sea, the walk is down a fair few steps but if your visiting Split then you should expect a lot of steps to climb as the area is very hilly! There are two set beaches one to the left and one to the right as you get down th steps. To the left, the beach is used by residents of the 5-star hotel Meridian but is open to anyone, as are the sun-beds and parasols. The beach itself is shingles but all of the beaches on the Dalmatian coast are! When you get in though you will find the sand and the water is glorious. We bought beach shoes with rubber soles and they were life-savers! To the right there is another beach that we found mostly to be used by locals and much less busy, there was a guy there taking people out on his jet ski for a small fee. However, we preferred to ignore the beaches and just jump in anywhere but usually just off the rocks directly at the bottom of the steps!

The day before we left Ivo left us a note asking us to leave the key in the door, thanked us for staying and also left us a bottle of wine which perked us up as we were sad to be leaving. You do need to empty your own bins and clean up after yourself so this is not the place to stay if your looking to be pampered...but for us, well, we felt spoilt!!

For the price we found Villa Luketa to be everything we needed really. The room was clean, & the kitchen well equipped, although we ate out every night. The bed was massive and the air con assured we got a good night's sleep. Although the main coastal road is outside we couldn't hear it at all. There are alot of steps so perhaps not good for elderly or disabled people but not a problem for us. Steps from the apartment lead down to the beach & you can walk around the promenade to find some good beaches for sunbathing. All the beaches in Croatia are pebbly but the sea is crystal clear & lovely to swim in so wasn't a problem. I though the location of the apartment was good as you are away from the busyness of Split but close enough to easily bus it in and also easily travel to the resorts further south such as Omis & Makarska. As others have said, Fabios pizzeria is lovely & very handy after a long day & we also used the casino at the 5* hotel next door!!

The family that run the villa are very friendly & helpful & we were offered a transfer back to the airport which was much cheaper than a taxi & much quicker than the bus.

All in all the apartments are very good as a base, especially if like us you will be out & about every day anyway. Would happily stay there again - we had a very enjoyable stay & a lovely holiday.
