CroatianStoneHouse.COM is located just two minutes walk from the local beach. The villa has been completely renovated to a high standard for our guests. All windows are double glazed with shutters and there is air conditioning on all 3 floors.
There are also several beaches within walking distance from the property including one beach with natural shade from large pine trees. The villa is located in the beautiful village of Kastel Luksic, a very historic and peaceful village centred around a beautiful 15th century castle vitturi.
One Advantage of the Area is That It Is Open All Year Round. The Area is not Seasonal Like The Croatian Islands. Shops, Restauraunts, Cafes, Supermarkets and Bars are open all year round so you can enjoy any time of the year.
The villa is part of the original village Ostrog. A settlement of houses that were formed behind Castle Virruri in the 15th Century. In ancient times the local fishermen used to store their small boats on the ground floor of these stone houses. Even to this day you will see the original large arches by the front door that used to allow boats to be pushed inside.
The village is in an ideal location being only 15 mins from Split town by car or bus and 15 minutes to Trogir in the opposite direction. This is an ideal location to explore Croatia. The property is also within an hour of Krka National Park by car. The village has all required amenities if you do not want to hire a car. There are several supermarkets, a butchers, local market, fast food, restaurants, several bars and coffee shops, a post office, doctors and ATM machine.
The benefit of Kastela compared to the large cities are that you can enjoy pleasant walks following the coastal road for several kilometres in both directions with beautiful scenery. You can visit each of the 7 villages that make up Kastela. The coastal road also being relatively quiet is also perfect for cycle rides and running.
For those who are interested in hiring a motor boat or yacht (with or without a skipper) the property is only 5-10 mins drive from the large Kastela Marina who can provide this service.

About Tayana Charles
I live in the UK not far from London in the suburbs. I enjoy travel, fresh coffee and family life. I also like to introduce more people to the beautiful Croatia by staying at a holiday home we spent several years renovating. We have renovated to a high standard so our guests feel at home.
Tayana Charles purchased this House in 2008
Why Tayana Charles chose Kaštel Lukšić
We chose this house because it was one of the original stone houses from a village that has existed since the 15th Century. We also chose the house because of the large roof terrace which is quite rare for stone houses. The house has character with thick walls to stop the heat in summer and to keep you warmer in winter. The property is also ideally located 10 mins from Split Airport and 30 metres from the beach.
What makes this House unique
Our large roof terrace is very popular with guests. There is a table and chairs that allows dining on the terrace with mountain views. There is also a large brick BBQ that allows you to enjoy grilled meat or fish. The house is also very close to the beach/sea so you can be on the beach in seconds. We also provide FREE fast Wi-Fi Internet in the house that allows guests to stay online during their vacation. Other nice features are the large 42 inch flat screen TV in the living area and a Super King Size bed in Bedroom 1 for the comfort of our guest. The house has satellite & cable television. We feel the house is more comfortable than most in Croatia as we have renovated to a high western standard. The house will feel like a home from home.

The property was great and location fantastic! We loved our stay in Kastel Luksic, its close proximity to the beach and local bars. The local bus we used often to get to Split - A must!!
We will definitely return.
The owners responded to queries promptly and the local information is in abundance.
Everything in the property was as advertised and more just needs some kind of shade on the wonderfull roof terrace.
Thank you so much for the feedback. We are glad you enjoyed the house and location. We try very hard to make sure the house is exactly as advertised and appreciate your feedback.
The roof terrace has some natural shade from the wall of the neighbouring property over the table. With temperatures over 40 degrees in the middle of the day we have found most guests prefer to use the terrace in the morning or evening. We have previously provided a sun umbrella but they were removed due to the high winds in Croatia blowing them off the balcony on to the pedestrian walkway below so this was a health and safety risk. We will look into safer ways to provide more shade in the future that will withstand the high winds and allow shelter during the hottest period of the day. Thank you for raising this.
Peaceful house in traditional Croatian village
Beautiful stone house in a quiet and peaceful village. Cafe for coffee in morning and beer in evening 5 minutes walk away and quiet beach similar distance. Roof terrace ideal for early evening to catch the last of the sun with a cold beer. House has excellent WiFi and everything we needed for a relaxing holiday.
Great base for visiting this area of Croatia
The house was found to be very clean when we arrived and everything was as described in the advert.
It is located down a narrow alley in Kastel Luksic and the whole feel of the village was akin to a villages in Southern France.There were ample bars nearby a couple of great bakeries with fantastic bread,bank,pharmacy and a small but adequate supermarket.The takeaway pizzas nearby weren't bad either
Despite the proximity of a couple of bars there wasn't any problem with noise at any time of day and everything was very civilised.The bars supplied us with great coffee in the morning and very reasonable drinks in the evening.
We really enjoyed the sun terrace and barbecue but I felt it would have been enhanced by some shade.
This was a lovely holiday and a lovely place to stay in,the lack of a pool was not a problem as swimming in the sea was only yards away.
Would definitely return.
Property clean, well designed, fantastic location literally 1min walk from the sea front. Neighbours friendly and very safe area. Everything you need is in the apartment - all kitchen appliances. Beautiful shower and massive comfortable bed. Loads of DVD's to entertain when staying in. Very comfortable living room. Thank you ever so much, the towns around were lovely to visit. We hired bikes and really enjoyed the time spent here. Highly recommended.
The property was very nice and clean.
The property was very nice and clean. Especially the kitchen had all the needed items to make breakfast, dinner etc. The terrance and the sun loungers were excellent! It was nice to start the day by drinking coffee at the terrace and enjoying the sun. The listing description was accurate, although the rooms looked a little bit bigger in the pictures. The owner provided us with excellent customer service! :) He was very helpful and friendly. I would recommend this property to my friends and family.
I recommend the other guests to visit the old town of Split and of course the beautiful Trogir. The Krka National Park was also a beautiful place to visit. The waterfalls were amazing. We used the Taxi GoGo-company. We ate in Hotel Villa Zarko about 6 times. Nice staff and good food. Great value for you money! The nearby fast food place was also good, if you didn't feel like cooking. The local turist biro wasn't very good. The workers weren't very helpful or nice. For example, one day we went there, because we wanted to get a taxi, but we didn't know the number. We went to the turist biro, and asked the lady worker to call us a taxi or give us the number so we could make the call. Her answer was: "It isn't my job to get you a taxi.." Luckily the local people are quite friendly, although they don't speak english very well.
Our overall experience about Croatia is very positive and we will return someday! :)
Thank you for your positive review. We are happy you enjoyed the house and Croatia. It is a beautiful country. The Krka Park waterfalls as you say are highly recommended for a day trip. Swimming under the waterfalls is a magical experience. Trogir and Split are also easy day trips from the house. Sorry to hear about your experience with the Turist Biro. This is the equivalent of a tourist agent in the U.K. We would recommend for tourist advice to visit Kastela Tourist Office located inside the 15th Century castle who should be more helpful when asking for advice. They also have many leaflets and tourist information on the area in the English language along with other languages.

The local area is OPEN all year round unlike the Croatian Islands where everything closes down after summer. Shops, Supermarkets, Cafes, Bars and Restaurants are open all year round so you can enjoy this location any time of the year. The local area has many businesses within walking distance such as butchers, bakers, shoe repair, convenience stores, fishing shop, coffee shops, bars so a car is not required if you don't mind staying locally.
