If you are looking for complete peace and relaxation during your holiday, you came to the right place. Absolute isolation in Park forest Marjan with no neighbors around. Literally 200m from sea with huge private garden full of shade all day. Outdoor dining area with magnificent view of Dalmatian islands and Split bay. Closeness of many beaches including small sand beach for children, and all sorts of sporting activities (biking, freeclimbing, kayaking, tennis and football courts,...).

The space

Our property is consisted of the main house and the small outbuilding/apartment few meters from the house. The main house consists of: kitchen combined with dining and living area; one double bedroom and two single bedrooms which both have queen-size beds; and a full bathroom. The main house is 65 m2, so the bedrooms are rather small but fully equipped (plenty of storage space and one work desk). The sofa in the living room is extendable into bed for two adults.
in front of the main house is spacious patio (with dining area) surrounded by garden which leads to the apartment.
Apatment consists of: small bedroom for 2 persons and a full bathroom; also, it has another extra room which is secondary kitchen, with extendable sofa in case of big groups.

Guest access

The benefits of our property are the big patio with dining area and a firelace; the garden with two hammocks, four sunbeds and a swing-set to enjoy the most beautiful view in Split. Also, the nearness of many beaches and all sorts of sports facilities and events (Nordic walking, biking, rollerskating, freeclimbing, kayaking, tennis and football courts, outdoor gym...).

Interaction with guests

During their stay, the guests have complete privacy on the property. However, our guests are welcome to contact me for whatever they need - I would be happy to give recommendations on what-to-do and where-to-go. Also, I can offer a private walking tour through the Old city. For adventurous guests, I offer hiking and cycling tours on Marjan Hill. I can also arrange one-day or half-day speedboat excursions to islands in front of Split (Vis, Hvar, Brač, Šolta, Čiovo, Krknjaši).
You will have the opportunity to see the Golden horn beach on island of Brač, Green cave and Stiniva beach (UNESCO) on island of Vis, Blue cave on island of Biševo and Paklenjaci archipelagus in front of Hvar - definitely a thing to do while in Split.

Other things to note

My family can prepare delicious traditional Mediterranean meals with a lot of fresh meat, fish and sea food for our guests. Also we can reccomend a nice domestic vines and other beverages. Vegetarian/vegan menues are also possible. It can be arranged for lunch or supper, according to guest's wishes.
That is also an option if you are interested in experiencing a true taste of Dalmatia and its cuisine...

This is a house where our family lives during the winter so we always prefer families and groups of adult friends who are a bit more considerate than young students. Treat it as your own and everything will be just fine.

Great Location with beautiful view of the ocean. Little beach close to the house and some rocks for jumping just in front. Connection to the old town of Split is easy by car and bus. The house is good for 6 people in my opinion, for bigger groups the space is quite limited. Communication with Borna was easy and he always responded immediately to our questions.

Villa Karina is beautifully located in a natural forest, with nice beaches and the most beautiful view to the sea. We booked this trip last year for a rather big group of people not knowing that the rooms are actually very very small. No space for a big suitcase if you are a bigger group. Three rooms are literally just a bed and almost no other space. So just bring very little. Also it says there are two King size beds and one bed "min. 1.50x2m" which is definitely NOT the case. I was in this supposed room and the bed was maximum 1.20m, so I had to share this very small bed with my boyfriend for a whole week which was not comfortable. Another thing is that using the stove and air condition at the same time does not work, since there is a limited fuse, so if you enjoy cooking like we do, you either sweat a lot or cannot cook at all. The second apartment next to the main house has no air condition so we had one or two sleepless nights. I want to point out though that all of us enjoyed Villa Karina otherwise and we have to say that it really is a hidden gem - quiet, not many people, a beautiful property and very nice owners! It is definitely the perfect place for 2-5 people I would say. We cannot recommend big groups.

Villa Karina is a beautiful place to spend time. Stunning views, quiet secluded garden. Numerous beautiful beaches within walking distance. Easy drive to Split or a bus stop located 50 yards away. I will be returning here again. Communication is excellent. I would genuinely recommend this Villa.

We stayed here for 8 beautiful days. The house was really perfect with this great view, the grill and outdoor shower after a whole day at the beach also bumped it up even more. We where mostly at the house eating dinner but also went into town a few nights which was pretty easy by bus. We never rented a car and it worked pretty good even though it would have been easier with a car. Hope to see this house another summer!

We rented this lovely house for a week, and I can really recommend it. It's placed very quietly into the national park with a stunning view of the sea and almost no neighbors. There is a few kilometers to shops so a car is a must. We spent most off the week at the terrace , loved to cook dinner and eat outside. Just in front of the house swimming is possible from the cliffs and at the end of the road there is a small beach. We come again next year.

Borna is privileged to have this house on the beautiful Peninsula. It is right next to Split and on a good bus route, while feeling like a remote and leafy cliff top location. The welcome was warm,the house is neat, compact and well-equipped, the garden terraces outside are very spacious and so relaxing. Ideal for a group. We loved our stay.

I am 25 years old. Born and raised in Split. I am a student of Kinesiology at the moment at Split University, last year. Also, I work as a fitness instructor and a personal trainer at one of the best Fitness centers in Croatia. I love doing sports, I starded with Judo at the age of 6 and later I spent 10 years rowing. I was a member of national team and competed on many international regattas and won a lot of medals including a dosen firstand second places on national championships.I also spent few years recreationally in thriathlonafter rowing. I am still very active, NOW I am into weightlifting and kettlebell training. That is why I chose this profession and I hope to be a professional S&C coach for team sports one day. I love everything that is connected with water (swimming, diving, sailing, rowing...). Living by the sea your whole life makes you addicted :). I enjoy traveling, of course, but still have many desinations to visit in my wishlist :) ...never been outside of Europe.
