While looking for a place to stay on Trip Advisor, one assumes that the lodgings are roughly where the map says they are. Be warned with Villa Deni - the house is about 5 miles inland from the location stated in the map; rather than a short walk from the sea, we found ourselves deep in the country side and in need of regular taxi rides and use of our rental car to get to any of the tourist sites. When we confronted the owner, Mario, with this bit of flagrant false advertisement, he seemed genuinely perplexed and astonished that the map was so inaccurate. At the time, I gave him the benefit of doubt, assuming this was more incompetence than malicious intent. However, over a week later, I find that the Trip Advisor site map is still not updated, so I'll leave readers of this review to come to their own conclusions. The property is lovely, and as a previous reviewer mentions, a spacious and well taken care of place to spend a holiday. Shame about the location.

If you are prepared to be living about 8 kilometres out of Split and you have a car this accomodation is a great option.
We were greeted by our hosts mother, Dani. She showed us round and gave lots of infomation about the house and Split. The house was spottlessly clean, spacious, over 4 floors. If there were any problems Dani was on the end of the phone for us.
Surrounded by fruit trees, lavender plants and with a lovely outdoor eating area, we were delighted.
The surrounding was residential,so very quiet.
The pool was lovely, with a television in the same room, a treat to get out of the 37 degrees we found ourselves in.There are several outdoor areas all round the property where peace, sun or shade can be found at anytime.
Our hosts very very attentive, when we had a small problem with the wifi, they came straight up to sort the problem, much to our kids relief.
We had an amazing holiday in Croatia and would come back.
The accomodation is on a steep hill which takes a bit of practice to get the car in place easily. but there is a local cheap taxi on hand if need be.
