“Sensational View of the Adriatic!”
Reviewed 4 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

If you want to spend a few days in Split but don't want to be right downtown, The Ark Apartments are a great alternative. Located in Stobrec, about 3 miles from the Split harbor area, the Ark is a newly-constructed apartment complex on a cliff overlooking the Adriatic, with an unimpeded view to the islands of Brac and Hvar. We stayed in a 1-bedroom, 1-bath unit that had ample space, nice modern kitchen and bathroom, and a semi-private patio (shared only with the next-door apartment, but with lots of space for both!) with the to-die-for sea view you see in the posted photos. This would be a 5-star rating except that the property is not yet finished (though as of this writing it looks very close). The building itself is, but the grounds still need work--Mladen is putting in a pool and decking area which will be wonderful when finished, but right now it's still...well, a hole in the ground. The other thing to realize is that Stobrec itself doesn't have much to recommend it. We found one very good restaurant, Konoba, Nikola, located only about 100 meters from The Ark, conveniently enough, and you can buy groceries and pharmaceutical items in town, so it's got all you really need. If your plan is to hang out in your apartment or visit Split, Trogir, the islands, etc., that is not much of a drawback. Moreover, Mladen, the owner, is a super wonderful guy who will take you anywhere in the area (modest charge), offer expert advice on sights to see, when how to get places, and even rescue you if you get lost! He is also an expert in local and regional music, and will be happy to discuss and explain at length, with many examples. He is reason enough to stay here!

“Perfect location, great accommodation, amazing hosts.”
Reviewed 30 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Absolutely brilliant holiday - Mladen & his family are such great hosts, and this makes all the difference. In advance we arranged to be picked up at the airport which took the stress out of getting to the apartment. Mladen was super friendly and welcoming, and spoke perfect English, so on our journey we could ask all the questions we wanted. We had originally planned to do some day trips, and he was very knowledgeable about the local and surrounding areas, and all the practicalities and logistics of any activity we mentioned.
The accommodation itself was excellent - spacious, absolutely spotless, tastefully decorated with a clean & modern aesthetic, with all the facilities you would need for basic self-catering, air-con, mosquito screens (so you can sleep with the balcony door open listening to the sound of the sea and crickets, with no fear of being bitten to death).
It's takes a few minutes to walk down the path/steps to the secluded beach, and you are welcome to borrow inflatables, snorkels, flippers, umbrellas and beach pads (as the beach is stony). You are also provided with beach towels as well as bathroom towels which was really useful. The beach is lovely and the sea crystal clear - although it's advisable to wear aqua shoes to protect your feet from sea urchins.
It's a 5 minute walk to the main village where there is a local bakery, and 2 supermarkets.
On the first night we were treated to some complimentary sparkling wine, cheese and anchovies, served on the terrace. Delicious. In the apartment you are also provided with local olive oil and some wine.
Throughout our stay Mladen was always available to answer any questions or help out with information and advice on transport, restaurants etc. In the end we were so content with our immediate surroundings that we didn't bother with any day trips! We also discovered an amazing seafood restaurant - Konoba Nikola - which was about 200m down the road. We ate there almost every night it was so good.
A perfect holiday from start to finish. We didn't want to leave and hope to be back in the not too distant future!

“The Best Hospitality Ever”
Reviewed 16 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We spent five days in September 2013 with our one-year old twins. The 14 apartments house was just finished and it is the best one in Stobrec - not only as a location but also very clean and comfortable.
The owners' hospitality was incredible. The piece de resistance was the last night fish dinner prepared by the owners themselves.
I can fully recommend Villa Ark for those who seek a calm vacation in a small village just 5 km from Split. ....and for friendly, helpful and kind owners.

“Mladen is great!”
Reviewed 8 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Wonderful 3 days as we traveled up the coast of Croatia. Mladen was a wonderful host. Very helpful and great apartment! Everything you need and your own little beach! Very quiet area, cute little bay and amazing view from balcony.
Thank you again Mladen and Family!

the beach was literally 2 mins walk down built in steep steps. the host was very friendly and willing to help with any activity you wanted - though we were too content with the walk to beach - which is pebbly but great for a few hours snorkeling. very local supermarkets for those nights you want to use the self-catering facilities and the fabulous terrace on the top floor or wooden tables with a view over the local islands. would recommend this place to friends family without hesitation.
