Rent our Apartment in Split!
We might have the most unusual apartment in Split.
When we decided to make Split our base one of the considerations was being able to rent out our accommodations while we travel. We love Split but we also never want to stop travelling.
We found an apartment we liked and have been fixing it up to our tastes. Part of the process was shipping our furniture from Montreal including many of the things picked up on our travels (which for now we just don’t have the stomach to get rid of). We have cabinets and a library from India, drums and paintings from Africa, a Thai bench, Javanese desks…it’s why I say we may have the most unusual apartment in Split.
Our apartment and some descriptions.
Living Room / 2nd bedroom
A large couch, a double sized bed, a working desk, a dining room table…and our TV with Cable (you can also watch the huge assortment of DVD’s we have).
The balcony (or maybe terrace is the better term) is the reason we fell in love with the apartment. We spend a lot of time out here. It’s very private, the views from neighboring buildings blocked by trees (there’s a palm tree, a fig tree, and a whole bunch of other trees that blossom at different times of the year). And because Split has quite a temperate climate we can use it all year long.
The kitchen is basic but functional with everything you need. We also have our washing machine here.
Like the kitchen, basic but functional. We’d love to have one of those Japanese toilets with the warm toilet seat and the spray action. Unfortunately we’re limited by what we can find in Croatia.
Our building from the outside.
We love the neighborhood. It is full of old, low-rise buildings with gardens and large trees. It is the most sought after neighbourhood in Split. Within 2 minutes are two very popular beaches:
Below: Bacvice beach. The most famous beach in Split. Lots of bars and restaurants along the shore.
Below: Ovcice beach. Our favorite beach, there’s a great cafe there and you’ll see mostly locals and their kids here.
The Old Town
Split’s Old Town is 10 to 15 minutes away from the apartment (depending on your walking speed). See my Guide on what to See and Do in Split (and around).
I always say that if you’re in Split 2 or 3 nights you should stay in the Old Town…but if you’re here longer then I really recommend our place. The neighborhood is great and you’re 10 minutes from the ferry, train station and bus station – so you can use it as a base to explore much of Dalmatia and the islands.
UPDATED January 13, 2018 – Sorry, the apartment is no longer available to rent.
