We rented the apartment for a week, it's in a great location, very close to the old town and harbour. The rooms are spacious and clean,there's a TV room and small but fully equipt kitchen both have air conditioning (we left our bedroom doors open, this kept our rooms cool too) it was a very compfortable stay for the 6 of us. Tomi was extremely helpful, he met us at the apartment and provided us with all the maps and information on tours that we needed for our stay. The apartment is in a quiet area so we were never disturbed, however clubs and bars are only a 5-10 minute walk away and we felt safe walking back at all times. Over all it was a great stay which enabled us to fully enjoy split.
To sum it all up, the location was on the spot, the accommodation was roomy and comfortable enough for 10 persons (no partners, only friends) and Tomi, the owner, was extremely hospitable. And last but not the least, it was cheap! A bit more in detail below.
Location - It is downtown in the old-city area. The street itself is in a normal and quiet residential area, but less than a 5 minutes walk is the Diocletan palace, the clubs, the scenery and the bus station! The beach is another 5 minutes further.
Accommodation - 3 tidy and roomy bedrooms and a separate living room with sofa's that could be transformed into beds. A kitchen that was already in-stock with basic kitchen supplies and also a complementary bottle of liquor, a watermelon and a few cooled bottles of water. We were encouraged to use the outside barbeque as well. The free wifi and airco made the stay more than comfortable.
Tomi - The host was really hospitable. Two months before we arrived he already provided us with informational flyers about Split. We know upfront what kind of recreational activities were available in and around Split. A week or two before our arrival he inquired whether we needed a transfer from the Airport, or if he could help in any way with bookings or if we had any other questions or requests. During our stay, Tomi would respond within the hour to our messages and would deliver within the next few hours.
The Price - It was relatively cheap. We reckon that we would have paid the same or more if we had rented on the outskirts of Split. Taking into account all of the taxi trips that we didn't have to take now, it was considerably cheaper. However, considering the location and the service, we feel that this appartement is seriously underpriced and we would have happily paid 50% more.
Downside - That the host , next to Croatian and English, did not speak Dutch as well ;-)

Our requests were catered to immediately. We were unfamiliar with the location, so our group was met at the train station and were accompanied on our walk to the apartment, while a vehicle drove our bags. Very responsive with pre and post communication (even receiving World Cup updates while on the train!). Apartment is as pictured, clean and spacious. Everything is within a 5 min walk - including waterfront. After such an easy, positive experience, we would stay here again.

This was a great apartment about five minutes walk to the old town and a max of ten minutes to the harbour.
The apartment itself is spacious and well equipped and Tomi is a very helpful host.
Tomi is a wonderful host who helped us every step of our trip. We were a group of 7 girls and he organised the taxi from the airport to pick us up. He was not available to give us keys on arrival, but that was not a problem since he had arranged for some friends of his to do it instead. He could be reached easily for our entire stay, even though he had a broken arm at the time! Tomi even made a brochure of things to do in Split himself!
The apartment itself was very clean, there were fresh towels for all and in the bathrooms. The kitchen was stocked well with all the basics and more. The beach was a very short walk away and you had to walk through the old town to get there, which was wonderful. There is a supermarket on the way. The bedrooms are very spacious, even with 7 of us it did not feel cramped.
Overall, the girls and I had an excellent trip and it was made better by Tomi's hosting and his lovely place.
