Description from owner


Luxury villa is divided in 2 separate units (first floor apartment "Maria" for 7 persons, and top floor apartment "Lucia" for 4 persons) – each on its own floor. The villa is a unique house built and decorated with lots of love to provide luxurious but comfortable holiday oasis. The extraordinary elegance and spaciousness abundantly present in this wonderful house will allow you luxurious comfort and an unforgettable holiday. Villa Maria, with breathtaking sea views pool and sauna, distanced 400 m from the gorgeous beach- ideally for the families with children because of trampoline, table football, slide, swing, and table tennis, and most because all the house is fenced so your children can be safe.

The brand new, modern decorated, sea facing sunny apartments with fantastic view on town Split is an ideal holiday resort.


  • Great for children of all ages

Very Good


Reviewed 21 May 2019

It was our first time to Croatia and after looking at many villas and hotels in the area for our annual girly trip we decided on here and we weren't disappointed. The villa is spread over afew floors that had everything you could possibly need, ample space and is very clean. There is a lovely pool and sauna to use at your disposal and bbq to use for your evening meals. The views are also to die for. Silvio, Joseph and there family were fantastic and couldnt do more for us. From airport tranfers, supermarket stock ups to arranging our trips and taking us in and out of split whenever we pleased.. We arrived to breakfast all ready made up for us with homemade wines and fruit baskets and was surprised one evening with a delicious cake as it was one or the girls birthdays. They made us feel so welcome and really helped make our holiday one to remember. Thanks again guys we will certainly be back

Owner's reply: Dear Chantelle, Thank you for choosing our Villa Maria and thank you for sharing your outstanding experience here on TripAdvisor! It is wonderful to know that you enjoyed in beauty of our Villa Maria and our service! I greatly appreciate your visit and your review and hope that we will welcome you again in the future. Sincere regards, Silvio Sokanovic

“The Perfect Stay”

Reviewed 31 Jul 2018

There is no better way to describe these apartments other than perfection. Myself and 9 other friends stayed here for 3 nights to celebrate the end of our exams. The photos do not do this place justice at all. Both apartments are modern and exceptionally clean with great air con. Then the hosts; who are the best I have ever experienced. So many thoughtful touches; from a welcome platter on arrival to driving a friend who was ill to the local pharmacy - they were constantly on hand to help however it may be. Their knowledge of the area enhanced our trip massively and allowed us to make the most out of our short time there. A massive thank you to Silvio, Joseph, Mario and Anita for everything. We hope to return to villa Maria very soon.

Owner's reply: Dear William, It was a true pleasure to read such a good review about your stay in Villa Maria! I am honestly pleased to see that you fully enjoyed and relaxed while on your short break and that Villa Maria was a part of your perfect vacation. Thank you for your honest recommendation and we will be honored to welcome you back again as our loyal guest. Sunny greetings from Split, Silvio

“A delightful mini break”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2018

I went to the villa with 11 girlfriends and I have to say that the hospitality of the owners and all their family is absolutely wonderful. We got picked up by Silvio at the airport and so that we could settle in immediately he took us straight to the supermarket for our supplies of wine and nibbles - a perfect start to the break. As we arrived a little late in the day they also arranged for us to go to a lovely beachside restaurant for dinner which was lovely and welcoming and reasonably priced. Made all the better for seeing Croatia get to the semis to play England on Wednesday! The next morning was superb - we had breakfast made for us all and put out on the patio for us to enjoy and relax - a treat like no other. The kindness and welcoming continued throughout the whole weekend and this really helped us to settle in quickly and make the most of all the amenities of the villa. So to the villa - well it is just as amazing as the family who own it. There is literally everything you need in there and you can chill and relax as much as you like. Plenty of sun beds and a lovely pool which was like a bath to go in. Thank you all for making this a wonderful trip and first experience to Spilt. I will definitely be back.

Owner's reply: Dear Debbyjm, Thank you for sharing your lovely review with us and for choosing our Villa Maria for your stay! We are proud to read all your comments and makes us happy that you found everything you need and enjoyed your stay. Once again thank you for staying with us and we look forward to welcoming you back again. Best wishes to all of you, Silvio Sokanovic

“Family group holiday.”

Reviewed 4 Sep 2017

My sister found Villa Maria for our multi - generational family holiday and what a gem it turned out to be. Silvio and Joseph met us with friendly smiles at the airport and this set the scene for our stay. Nothing is too much trouble. As previous reviewers have said, we were met with a tasty selection of cold meats, cheeses, olives, bread and choices of home made aperitifs. Silvio took us to a supermarket to stock up after a tour of the beautiful villa which has everything you could possibly need including dishwashers, washing machines, plenty of towels and utensils, hairdryers and a fabulous BBQ area. There were 11 of us and we took all 3 floors. Silvio helped us arrange restaurant bookings and tours including a trip to the stunning national park at Krka and the old town of Trogir. A highlight was a fantastic meal prepared by Maria which we enjoyed in the pretty garden on a warm night under the stars. Thank you for a truly relaxing family stay with a lovely family hosting us.

Owner's reply: Dear Deana, Thank you so much for so nice review. I am really proud and happy that you had such a nice stay with us! It is quite honoured to receive so flattering review from the guests. We are all looking forward to welcome you again in our Villa Maria! Silvio

“Feels like a second home”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2017

After 5 years since our last stay in this beautiful apartment and a short visit 2 years ago, we decided to come back there for our holidays. So we (2 adults and 1 child) knew Silvio and his family for quite a long time now. It's always great to see them again. We always feel us very comfortable there. Also, Silvio and his family do everything to enjoy your stay. Silvio even organized german tv channels for us. In this villa you have everything to enjoy your holidays. We couldn't make a difference between our first and last time. The view from there is just stunning. For sure, that wasn't our last stay there. Because we've been there already we knew the environment well. But there is always something to explore like visiting the islands. In short, we just fell in love with this amazing place. Furthermore the hospitality of Silvio and his family is just great. We enjoyed every time we had a nice chat with them. There's only one bad thing every time we're there ... saying goodbye. However we can't wait to come back and see all of them again!

Owner's reply: Dear Karina and all your family, I am so grateful for your kind and generous feedback regarding our Villa Maria, and for sharing it with all our future guests. It is always big satisfaction when guests returning in our place, so you need to know that we are also felt with your stay here, that we have family in the house. I would like to thank you on behalf of all my family for such nice words. I am delighted that you are satisfied with so many things in the villa, and that you spent so nice vacations at our Villa! We would definitely would like to host you here again very soon! Until then, I am sending you sincere personal regards, Silvio

“Amacing villa and great people!”

Reviewed 31 Jul 2017

We were 13 people and had all an amazing time at Silvios place. The house is located only a 10 minutes walk from the beach and restaurants in Podstrana. The apartments were clean, had everything we needed and the view was fantastic! Silvio was a great host! He showed us around and was always reachable. We arrived early in the morning and he let us "check in" right away. The day we were going home he let us stay until the afternoon because our plane had a late departure. He welcomed us with drinks and food, and his family also made a wonderful lunch to us before we went home. We highly recommend this place!

Owner's reply: Dear Hanne, Thank you very much for your lovely review and great feedback about Villa Maria. I am really glad that you enjoyed your stay here with us. I hope that your next visit is going to be very soon. Thank you very much, many regards from sunny Split Silvio

“Amazing Villa Maria!”

Reviewed 7 Jun 2017

Just returned from a fantastic week away at the Villa Maria, which I booked for my Mother's 60th birthday. We hired the whole villa which was the perfect place for our group of 14 people who are aged between 24-82 years old. The villa was very spacious, great sized rooms and beautiful surroundings. The view over Split from all three balconies were spectacular. Pool was lovely, sun-deck relaxing and garden areas well kept. Silvio and his family were fantastic hosts. Nothing was too much, from the moment I contacted Silvio from the UK he was very helpful and very quick to reply to queries or questions. He catered for our every need, from arranging transfers to and from the airport, excursions, restaurants and taxis. The villa is situated up a hill, which for most of us was fine. My 82 year old grandmother was able to walk down to the beach and restaurants but a taxi was always arranged back up for a minimum price. Beach, beach bars, cafes and small supermarket are all located at the bottom of the hill which is about a 10 minute walk. Split was easy to get to via taxi, around 15 minutes, where there were bars, restaurants and shops. We all loved our holiday in Croatia. Villa Maria is perfect for families and friends wanting to relax and spend time together. We have all talked about returning in the future and I would definitely book Villa Maria again. Well done Silvio and his family for making our holiday one to remember.

Owner's reply: Dear Tamara, Thank you very much for your lovely review and great feedback about Villa Maria! I am really glad that you enjoyed your stay here with us. Your review is real picture if Villa Maria atmosphere and we are all very happy that somebody manage to describe all that by words! We all hope that your next visit is going to be very soon! You will be welcome here. Thank you very much, many regards from sunny Split! Silvio

“The most amazing place and people”

Reviewed 4 Sep 2016

We stayed as a large group of three families - 6 adults and 6 children in the three apartments. This is quite simply the best accommodation we have stayed in, with the most helpful hosts, ever. Silvio and family made us feel welcome immediately when we arrived very tired from an early morning flight with a welcome meal and drinks. Nothing was too much trouble, they really made every effort throughout to make our holiday as smooth as possible and this helped made our stay amazing. One evening Silvio and family even cooked us all an outstanding traditional Croatian meal largely from their own produce. We cannot speak highly enough of the accommodation or Silvio and family. We would certainly love to return. Dan Wilmott & family.

“Accommodation above and beyond”

Reviewed 4 Sep 2016

We have recently returned from our 2nd visit to Villa Maria. Once again the hospitality we received went above and beyond our expectations and ensured that this return visit was equally as successful as our first. This time we took family friends with us , who like us were overwhelmed by the thoughtfulness and kindness shown to us all by Silvio and his extended family. The villa is beautiful, superbly equipped and in a great location for all the sights Croatia has to offer. The children didn't even complain this time about climbing the hill at the end of the day's adventures.! !!!All in all another fantastic holiday and definitely a place well worth visiting. Thank you.

“First class villa and hosts”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2016

My family and I (13 adults and 2 children) spent spent 6 wonderful days at Villa Maria to celebrate my daughters 30th birthday. Silvio was very helpful from the moment I began making enquiries, throughout the stay and right up to the end. He put my mind at ease by reassuring me that he and his family would help us to organise our airport transfers, trips, birthday celebration and anything else that we required. He arranged for 11 of us to be picked up from the airport then for another 2 to be picked up in the evening and also our return transfers. Maria (Silvio's mother in law), Josip, Ivan and Lucia prepared a magnificent home cooked birthday celebration meal that consisted a lot of their home produce for a reasonable price and probably cheaper than most restaurants. This also included an amazing birthday cake baked by Maria and a specially made one from the patisserie. The villa was very comfortable, had everything you could possibly need and the views were breathtakingly beautiful. Maria is a great cook and host and we enjoyed conversing with her in English, German and Italian. Josip gave us so much advice on the best beaches, restaurants and places to visit and would give us lifts to the supermarkets and shops. Nothing was too much trouble for him. Ivan made sure the gardens and pool were immaculately clean at all times. Our trips were organised by Ivan Taxis. Information at villa. They were very knowledgable about Croatia, kind and patient. They offered tailor made services at a good price and their cars and people carriers were air conditioned, clean and comfortable. Exactly what you need when holidaying with a large varied age group. A big THANK YOU to Silvio, Lucia, Maria, Ivan, Josip and Mario for making our holiday an unforgettable and beautiful experience and we hope to return one day. Saluti e Baci.
