Our stay at Ksenija her apartment was extraordinary. She was very welcoming and gave us many good suggestions, especially to deal with my elderly parents their limitations. What we liked in particular that she was very open to help but never pushing, allowing us to explore split at our own pace and expressing our needs.

We would say the apartment is better than the photos suggest. The floor was replaced, giving a more pleasant feeling to the house and a second bath room was added. The dinner table is very nice for a relaxed family breakfast or home cooked meal. The showers were great, at least when you have the switches of the boilers on, haha, ;). The sloped ceilings were a concern for us, looking at the pictures, but we never bumped our heads (being almost 2m tall).

The views from the apartment are spectacular for an apartment in the citycentre.

“Great location!”
Reviewed 28 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We enjoyed our stay at Venus Apartments and absolutely LOVED Split. A big part of what made our stay memorable was our host, Ksenija. From the time I booked our reservation, she was in regular contact with us, answering questions, recommending tours, etc. She arranged for a driver to pick us up at the airport and was waiting for us at the apartment when we arrived. She walked us through the apartment, explaining everything in detail, then sat down with us, gave us a map of the area along with recommendations on everything from sightseeing, restaurants, shopping, etc. She even brought us some of her homemade Rakija to sample, which was delicious! The apartment is in an ideal location on a safe, quiet street just a few steps away from the Riva. Nice little balcony with a partial view of the sea. The air-conditioning unit is in the dining room. The master bedroom was a bit warmer than the other bedroom, but not unbearable. Ksenija made sure we had a fan in the room to help circulate the air. There's no counter space in the bathroom but there are shelves to put your toiletries on. WiFi worked GREAT. Worth noting, there is no lift so you will have to haul your luggage up a few flights of stairs. Over all, we were happy with our stay there and would recommend it. It's a bit rustic but the price is fantastic and it was nice to have the extra space for less than the cost of a hotel. Special thank you to Ksenija for her warmth and hospitality!

“Wonderful Apartment - Amazing Location”

I had a long-term fall/winter stay in Ksenija's apartment. The apartment is large, fully equipped for any length of stay and was clean upon my arrival. It has windows facing 3 different directions for beautiful views of the sea, mountains and neighbourhood. I completely recommend this apartment for any length stay in Split.

The location is unbeatable. It is in an old historic neighbourhood called Varoš. It is a one minute walk to the Riva (with all of it's bars) and sea. The historic centre is only 2 minutes away. For walks in nature, Marjan park is 5 minutes away. There are several grocery stores within 5 minutes walk. The bus station and ferry terminal are an easy 10-15 minute walk. Restaurants are everywhere. There is so much nearby the apartment, one does not need a car for anything.

The host, Ksenija is extremely friendly and helpful. She speaks excellent English and is very pleasant and easy to communicate with. She went out of her way to assist me on several occasions. Thank-you Ksenija for my wonderful stay!

Absolutely perfect location & Kseniya is a wonderful host. The apartment is top floor, spacious, clean and has everything you need. This is one of the few places we have been that we would all love to return to. There is so much to do & see, Kseniya helped us to sort everything that we could wish for. We miss you Kseniya, and your apartment, and Split, we all hope to return. Thank you

What a wonderful base for exploring Diocletian’s magnificent city! This apartment is located on the top floor of a historic home. We were delighted to find that everything is exactly as in the pictures, and the location at the end of Riva could not be more perfect. Air conditioned living area and LOTS of space made us very comfortable after a long day of exploring the ancient city of Split. Every morning we awoke to a breakfast of fresh bread and pastries from the bakery located on the ground floor. We could not have asked for a more perfect experience, nor for more wonderful host. First class from start to finish, and highly recommended!
