We have just recently come back from our lovely 10 night stay in this kastel apartment and overall had a great time but a few slight issues that made the experience bitter sweet. We traveled as 2 couples, From the day of check in Goran was very helpful as we arrived late and he ordered us takeaway pizzas as we were hungry. The Apartment was perfect great size for 2 couples and the surrounding area was perfect as we were very close to a konzum supermarket which was great and walking we were walking distance from a small beach and a nice restaurant. Split was a 15 min taxi drive and is a lovely city which you must visit. I would give this apartment a perfect review if it wasn't for these next two issues which are not major but left us unsatisfied especially as one of them was our last memory of the apartment. First issues was that during the 10 night stay we did not get our bed sheets changed once and when we asked about this around 5 days in we were told you had to be staying 14 nights to get your bed sheets changed once otherwise it would cost us €30, I have never experienced this any where I have stayed before so this was disappointing. Our last issue was during our check out, our flight wasn't until 7.20pm and our check out was 10am, we knew this when we booked the apartment and had to no problem with this. However croatia is a very warm place and we were hoping that until maybe 2pm we could use just the pool area (which has a Large shaded canopy area) and the outside shower this way we could still enjoy our last day and get washed and ready to head home, this was not the case as soon as 10am came we were told we had to leave the apartment and the premises including the pool area as it was no longer in Bounce. Luckily we had traveled with another couple who were staying a 10 min walk away and the host of this apartment aloud the four of us who were staying at the hacienda corluka to use an area of there apartment that gave us shading from the sun and a shower area, this aloud us to go down the beach for a couple hours, get showered and changed into clean clothes ready for traveling. We feel the hosts could have done more to help us with our situation but when we explained this too them we were told we had to leave for 10 only service they could provide would be to hold our cases. Other than these issues we had a great stay and highly recommend croatia and split.
My partner and I stayed in this apartment for 7 nights in September. Everything about this place ticked the boxes, great interior, convenient location (ie. 2 minutes from a supermarket and bus stop), swimming pool on your doorstep, the list goes on.
Not only did it tick the boxes, the owners would go the extra mile to take care of their guests. On the Sunday, the owners provided the guests with a BBQ food which was top class. Also, if there were any small concerns, they would go out their way to help - along with giving general advice on the surrounding area.
If I could give 6 stars I would... This place is brilliant and I would like to thank the owners for a great week away in Split!

I wanted to say a big thank you to Goran and his family for being outstanding hosts!
Great communication from the very start! Helped me and my partner organise our travel to get to the apartments. Spoke very good english and was very helpful in telling us how to get to Split and what was local around the area. They made us feel extremely welcome and they even went out of their way to cook us a BBQ platter for lunch just out of goodwill. We also had told them that day after our lunch we were heading to Split after, Goran remembered this and offered a free lift in as a family member was heading down that way.
The apartment was lovely and clean and we had an amazing holiday! We traveled all over Kastela and took local transport each day to Split and back!
Overall I would recommend this place to everyone who wants to travel around Split! We loved having a nice quiet apartment in Kastela and when we wanted more of a lively atmosphere we traveled around!
Thank you guys so much :)
