“One of our best holidays ever!”
Reviewed 4 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We've wanted to visit Croatia for a while now but wanted to avoid the obvious choices and tourist traps. We decided an island would be a good idea and then settled on Brac. Good choice! Once the island was chosen it was a matter of narrowing down the village and we then chose Splitska as it had enough restaurants for some variety, supermarket and didn't look too busy. Obviously the last choice to make was the accommodation (we always go self-catering) so we opted for Apartment Vanda.

Our initial booking was for a fortnight but it was actually more convenient for us to fly in to Split on the Friday so I booked us into a hotel and told Hrvoje, the apartments owner. He then kindly offered to put us up in his apartment in Split but then later actually told us we could have the apartment for an additional night if we liked.

Hrvoje met us at the bus station in Split (very easy transfer from the airport), helped us pay for two ferry tickets and then joined us on the ferry. Once we arrived in Supetar he gave us a lift to his apartment in Splitska, stopping at the supermarket in Supetar on the way. We were amazed as the apartment surpassed all our expectations! Normally we book online and turn up to find something nothing like the photos. Apartment Vanda is way better than the photos! It is perfect and really well equipped. The patio is HUGE with the most amazing barbecue which we used three times. The main bedroom is spacious with air con. The lounge / dining room is large too but we tended to sit on the balcony most of the time. There is a smaller room with a single bed and also a double futon bed in the lounge but it was just two of us so we didn't use these. The shower is big and very powerful.

The beach is at the bottom of the steep stairs and then over the road. We had a couple of days where we sunbathed and chilled on the patio and then walked down the stairs to jump in the sea to cool off. Be warned that the beaches are mainly rocks (flat at least) or pebble beaches. This is fine as long as you have something soft to lay on and you can buy folding beach cushions on the island. I'm a bit old for building sand castles so I wasn't bothered about the lack of sand. The restaurants, shop and bar are about 300 metres up the road. All are very good and I have already reviewed them separately. Our favourite for Italian food was Vila Marija and for seafood, Restaurant Vala. The shop has enough of the basics to keep you going.

We walked to Postira and back a few times (2.5km each way) and also walked to Supetar (4.5km) and got taxis back from Supetar for 100 kuna (£10). We also took a ferry to Split for a day out. Hrvoje met us for coffee, gave us a guided tour of Split and then walked us to a really nice restaurant for the local speciality, Pasticada. We also walked to Postira and hired a kayak to paddle to Lovrenica, the only sandy beach on the island (4 km each way). There is a bus that runs from Supetar to Bol and we got on it in Splitska and travelled to Puscisca for a day out.

On the day we left Hrvoje and his lovely wife came over to the island, picked up the car they leave in Supetar and drove to the apartment. Hrvoje then gave us a lift to Supetar whilst his wife cleaned the apartment.

All in all, an extremely relaxing holiday in a fantastic apartment in a gorgeous little village. Hrvoje and his wife were the perfect hosts and I can't recommend their apartment enough. We WILL be back!

Thank you for your wonderful review. You were fantastic guests, nice and kind. I am sorry that you did not have the opportunity to try pasticada or seafood prepared by may wife. I hope you will be back, and I promise to give you some dalmatian domestic specialties at my home and we will show you more attractions of our city. It was great to have such guests who left the apartment in perfect, clean condition. Thanks again for the wonderful words and we hope to meet you again in the future. Hrvoje and Djurdja.

“EXCELLENT”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The flat was totaly renovated and was very nice. The bathroom was elegant. The flat had all you needed from laundry machine to towels. The host and his wife was extremly nice and friendly. The location was top only 30 meters to the sea. In Splitska there were som good restaurant. We recomend this flat highly.
