    The kitchen has poor equipment, (no microwave oven, coffee maker, etc) there is not enough counter and empty space in kitchen corner.

    I loved the view to the sea very much. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was clean. The whole room is in good condition. The owner and the owner's son were very kind and helpful..the apartment is very close to the beach. We went out from building and we were on beach. The villa has sunumbrellas and beds are on the beach. This is very good and useful with children.

    Totally out of control of the family but beware of the main road when crossing- A busy road with traffic that travels through quite quickly. NOTE- you do not hear the road/traffic from the property

    Fantastic large apartment located a few steps from the sea owned and managed by a lovely very helpful family.Cafes, bars,restaurants and small supermarkets are all within reasonable walking distances. Would we go there again?- Definitely

    Very friendly staff, always happy to assist in any question that appear. Nice place, really close to the beach, clean and convenient. Was good to spend time with family there. Not crowded. FYI: There's a good grill on the beach available for the guests after 6pm. Also interesting fact about Podstrana: it never been raining longer than 10 mins. The forecast showed rain, but it was sunny or a bit cloudy, so we bathed every day. We tend to visit a new place every time, but I'd like to visit Villa Jerkan at least once more.

    More cushions for the sun beds are needed but if you are there longer buy yourself one at the start of your break.

    Very friendly and welcoming owner and his sons. We had room 21 on the 4th floor which overlooks the beach with fantastic views. Room was well equiped for self catering however we only made breakfast as there are some lovely restaurants within walking distance. The no. 60 bus takes you into Split for about 12 kuna and run frequently from up the road near the lovely bakery.

    Very relaxed atmosphere. Perfect for some relaxation after a weekend at Ultra Europe. Huge apartment right next to the beach. We were 7 people in total and really enjoyed our stay here. The man who owns the hotel is the most pleasant we've met on our journey. From experiencing lack of service and hopeless logistics in other places around Split, it was amazing to be accommodated by a helpful and service minded person. Will definitely come back to stay here on our next trip. Several resturants around the area. Don't be shy to ask the host about places to eat nearby.

    If you are looking for most modern interior it's not your choice. Rooms are comfortable and well equipped but not according to recent design tendencies. It has no influence on quality of your vacation but for someone might be critical. One more con for someone, it's staff temperament. They may be quite loud during their job. As result if you prefer to sleep with open window it might be difficult after 8AM. But you always can close all windows and turn on air condition and sleep as long as you wish.

    Very friendly owner and staff. They will do their best to make your vacation as much comfortable as possible.

    Spoiled by the insistence for cash payment
    • Leisure trip
    • Couple
    • Studio (2 Adults)
    • Stayed 7 nights

    The owner demanded cash payment for accommodation, even though booking confirmation stated credit card. The demand for cash was made at 11.30 pm on 3rd night of stay, with a persistent and argumentative manner, in front of my partner. This is unacceptable and I can see from other reviews, that the owner has been belligerent to another guest about cash payment, also as recently as July was claiming that his card machine was out of service. I selected the Villa Jerkan because of the glowing reviews from others, all whom stated how quiet was the location. There was no mention of the heavy trucks rumbling past on the trunk road, approximately 100 metres away. There were three pages of cheaper options in the same area, but I thought I was choosing somewhere special. We found a basic accommodation with no oven, microwave, hair-dryer or iron. We even had to request a toaster. Anyone else visiting Villa Jerkan should be prepared for the demand for cash. I will not recommend Villa Jerkan to others.

    Clean room and shower was OK. Nice to walk along gravel beach to restaurants about 15-20 minutes away.

    Predivna obiteljska vila na samome moru, mirna lokacija, besplatne ležaljke i izvrstan wifi signal.Apartman je na suprotnoj strani od mora, te je bilo jako ugodno i bez klime, na terasi hlad gdje se je moglo doručkovati.Soba je dobro opremljena sa čašama, frižiderom, kuhalom, tanjurima, i ostalim kućnim potrebštinama. Apartman je jako čist i uredan, osoblje je susretljivo i da li su nam nekoliko bitnih informacija o prijevozu do centra i obližnjim trgovinama.Plaža je točno ispod hotela, ali ima i malo dalje predivnih plaža.Cijena smještaja je bila najpovoljnija u tome terminu s obzirom na Ultru i visoke cijene u ostalim apartmanima i hotelima.Svakako ćemo se opet vratiti i preporučiti smještaj.

    Since villa located at the end of Podstrana it will take some time to visit Split. Public transport is not very good optimized in Croatia, for instance, bus from Omis to Split through Podstrana operates every 30 minutes, but you will never know when exactly it arrives at your stop :-((. That is why for travelers preferring to see castles and other beautiful places in Split, I strongly recommend to rent a car.

    It was a really lovely time that we spent together with my wife on this villa! If you enjoy swimming and sunbathing, than this is definitely place that you would like. The villa is located directly on a beach and you can use deck-chairs for free. The beach is clean and has a sandy smooth descent to the see. If you prefer cook by yourself you can do it directly in your room or use a brazier for barbecue. Also there are couple restaurants nearby if you do not want to cook yourself.
