As the previous reviewer mentioned, this is two small apartments, but if you rent the house you have access to both. We are a family of three, with a 6 month old baby, and wanted a first family holiday. This is ideally situated a short 45 minute drive from Split airport. The village of Gata is quiet and sleepy, ideal for a family holiday. The house itself is well maintained with all necessary amenities to hand. The apartments are small, but functional and are clean and tidy. We didnt need any more space, as we spent our time outside. The best feature of the house was the pool and sun terrace, which was perfect, and we used this every day. Marin popped in halfway through the week to clean the pool and check we were OK, and also gave us some organic vegetables from the garden to use on the (HUGE) bbq! Omis is a short drive away, and there are bars, shops and all the necessary holiday essentials if that's what you like! This was our first visit to Croatia and we are already hoping to return at some point to see more of the country. I would recommend this house to people who want a quiet, relaxing holiday, and to people with young children. If you want a lively nightlife, bars and restuarants this isn't the place for you, and I think older children may want more activities near by. But for us, it was perfect!! The owners were easy to communicate with, and offered lots of ideas of places to visit.

The house is great - it's split into two apartments, we took the main one but had the use of both. The pool and terrace are on the roof and well supplied with parasols, sun loungers, chairs etc, with another terrace handy for eating outside the main lounge.
The kitchen is very well stocked and it's lovely to have a wood-burning grill outside to cook on as well. Handy to have a washing machine (under the internal stairs leading to the pool) and great to have decent wifi and satellite channels.
The main reason we chose this house was the playground out front - the infant swing is carefully positioned in the shade of a tree which our little one loved. A cot, bedding, high chair and kiddie loo seat/step were all supplied as well.
Anamarija and Marin were brilliant and always on hand to answer any questions, they left useful maps and info about the local area too. The village of Gata is quiet and peaceful with a mini market a short walk from the house. Omis is approx 15 mins drive down to the coast at the mouth of the imposing Cetina valley. Nearest beaches and supermarket to be found here. Split and the airport are easy to reach by car - approx 40 min to an hour away. Marin recommended we went to Trogir on the last day as it's just past the airport which was also well worth a visit. Thank you both for a lovely stay and hope to see you again!
Loved it...so peaceful place to spend a holiday. Close to Split and Omis. Nature is beautiful, breathtaking. Hosts are kind and helpful. Offered vegetables from organic garden was extra kick. Thank :)
