About Thea Robinson

We are a British family who first invested in a waterfront fisherman's cottage on the island of Brac(property no. 55026) in 2004 and fell in love with Croatia's wonderful landscapes, people and food. In 2013 we felt it was time to make a second purchase in this beautiful, historic centre of Split and were fortunate enough to find this very special property. In April 2014, we completed the project and are pleased to make this lovely apartment available for others to enjoy.

Thea Robinson purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Thea Robinson chose Split

It's a perfectly positioned, spacious apartment with its own very rare, private terrace in the historic Diocletian's Palace. The apartment offers access to a beautiful coastline, a great deal of Roman history and many excellent restaurants, cafés and shops. Even the local supermarket is a site of historical interest. There is an amazing fish and vegetable market a short walk away, as well as an abundance of bakeries for your freshly baked, daily loaf! Why not enjoy a two stop holiday in Croatia by booking some time in our Brac island property, no. 55026

What makes this apartment unique

We were instantly attracted to this wonderful apartment by the high ceilinged, generously proportioned rooms and private terrace all set within a site of Roman antiquity and so perfectly located for enjoying all the delights Split has to offer. We now feel able to offer a two stop holiday experience of Croatia by offering potential visitors the opportunity to enjoy the hustle and bustle city experience in addition to the beauty and relaxation on the island of Brac - see property no. 55026 for more details.Also, we are in the process of partnering with a Split based excursion company for 2016 which runs a variety of professional tours in Dalmatia to suit all tastes. Their focus is on the smaller group tour experience, which is of a very high standard. Guests of Prisca will receive a 15% discount of the listed price of all tours.

Perfect property in Split

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment during a recent family trip to Split. I cannot say enough good things about our experience. The location is phenomenal, and the apartment is large, comfortable, and well-maintained. We loved dining on the patio and listening to the sounds of the restaurant below. Baldo, the property manager, was extremely helpful and friendly. He gave us wonderful recommendations for activities and restaurants. He went out of his way to make sure that we had an enjoyable holiday, and we are very grateful for his hard work. Split was a lovely city, and our stay at this apartment was the highlight of our trip. I cannot recommend it enough.

There was not a single thing that could have been done to this apartment to make it better- it was set up comfortably, in a GREAT location, super clean and managed perfectly. Thank you for the excellent experience, hope to be back!

Extra thank you to Baldo, the onsite contact-- who not only helped with any and all property questions but also helped set up amazing experiences for our trip.

Best place in Split

  • 5 of 5

Just back from another memorable visit to Croatia. We spent 11 days in Apartment Prisca- my husband and I (73),our son, his wife and our grandsons (9 and 11). The apartment was everything we expected and more! The Robinson's were super easy to make arrangements with...and as a frequent traveler ....we know this isn't always the case. The location was perfect. The patio was where we spent all of our at home time... The patio table and chairs were amazingly comfortable. We loved Baldo and would definitely follow all of his advice! He arranged our Split Airport pick-up, a countryside/ archeological tour and a speedboat transfer to the incredible Robinson cottage in Postira. I could list all of the restaurants we loved, but just ask Baldo! Don't forget to visit the Kruscic Bakery and the D16 Specialty Coffee right across from the front door. We also recommend Adriatic Sushi & Oyster bar for the tempura fried oysters and, actually, everything else on the menu... We ate there twice and I think we tried almost everything! I have an Instagram account (public) that has lots if pictures if you're interested (patwilburn73) and an open Facebook group CROATIA 2017, also.

Superb apartment in a superb location

  • 5 of 5

This really was a great apartment, far more spacious than even the photos would indicate. The high ceilings and thick walls provided an air of tranquillity and the terrace was a real oasis in the throng of the city in the heat of summer. Bildo was a superb host, making himself readily available to help with all our questions and requirements. His company, Gecko tours laid on seamless transport from and back to the airport and our tour of Salona, Klis and Trogis was made eminently more enjoyable and interesting by his guide Boris who really was a font of historical and social knowledge - a definite must!

Perfect choice

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th European vrbo stop. We couldn't believe how large and beautiful it was. Our teenage daughter was so happy to have room to get away from her parents for awhile. The property managers were exceedingly gracious and accommodating . We would absolutely choose this apartment again.

Exceeded every expectation

  • 5 of 5

As gorgeous as this apartment looks in the photos, it's even more appealing in person. The patio furniture has been upgraded and made for an absolutely perfect spot to relax after a day of site seeing with a glass of wine, sitting just above the hustle and bustle. And when you're ready for bed, just go inside and close the windows and it's perfectly quiet. (Seriously, the windows are amazing.) The apartment is smack in the middle of things in Diocletian's Palace -- literally steps from anything you could want (a bakery and a coffee shop for the morning, dozens of great choices for a drink or snack in the evening). Baldo, the property manager, was exceptionally helpful regarding parking and other logistical details, and also provided terrific advice for what to see, what to do and (most important) what to eat. And yes, the bathrooms are just as spectacular as they look in the photos -- plus the water pressure is awesome. It's a bit tricky to get your luggage in and out (let Baldo help!) and you will notice the smoking down below if you're sitting on the patio at night (we weren't bothered by this at all, but it's worth knowing if you're particularly sensitive -- again, closing the windows in the apartment does the trick). Can't recommend it highly enough.

Split is perfectly located for exploring the whole of Croatia, as well as the islands. The Diocletian's Palace area is a UNESCO world heritage site. It provides much historical interest, but has all the attractions of a bustling city centre next to the sea - including a beaches which are only a short walk or bus journey away. Besides the many cafés, restaurants and shops, Split also has an opera house, indie cinema which regularly shows English language films, as well as a regular cinema. All in all, Split provides most travellers with the perfect combination of attractions to provide something of interest for everyone.
