Illyria - a beautiful fisherman's cottage just 3 meters from sea

Family-friendly cottage in Postira with water park

Illyria is a very old Dalmation fisherman's cottage which has been restored sympathetically to retain the authenticity of the property. The property is set over 3 floors with 2 of the three bedrooms enjoying breathtaking and uninterrupted views across the Adriatic Sea. The property comes with 2 bathrooms both equipped with power showers. Illyria is fully air conditioned throughout and satellite TV is available.
The property has a large terrace with BBQ - you can fish from the terrace and then pop your catch right on your own fire. There is a mooring post, situated in front of the property making it suitable for those with a boat or small yacht. Illyria is within a short walk of the local amenities including the many fine restaurants and pubs of Postira and the immediate vicinity. Guests may use the gym, spa (incl. manicurist) and sauna/solarium/internet facilities of a nearby hotel for a small charge.
The island of Brac is only a 45 min ferry journey from Split which is directly served by an international airport. In the summer months, ferry departures from Split are very frequent i.e. every hour approx. Flights to Zadar (one and half hours drive from Split) and Dubrovnik (3 hours drive from Split) would also be suitable as would flights to Bol on the island of Brac..
Illyria was recently featured in the U.K. Channel 4 programme "Homes by the Med" - https://vimeo.com/205875693, enter code "med13" scroll to 12m35s and enjoy the coverage.

We are associated with an excellent local tour operator, Gecko tours, based in Split and offering day tours and activities for all interest groups across Dalmatia. Gecko tours are also able to arrange a private pick up from Split airport (or Zadar airport) and drop off at the port-side at Split - they can also pre-buy your ferry tickets to save you the hassle. Gecko tours may be able to offer discounts to Illyria guests so please tell them where you are from - well worth considering during your stay at Illyria. Gecko tours can also arrange a private 12 seat speedboat transfer from a jetty just 800m from the airport entrance directly to Postira harbour (only 400m from our house) which is a very exciting and quick, a rather James Bond way of arriving. Please just let us know if you're interested and we'll arrange the rest.

We also own and manage another prime site property, nestled in the heart of Diocletian's palace in Split(see HomeAway listing 1300888).This 120 metre, luxury, 1st floor apartment with its own private terrace (a rarity in Diocletian's palace) is simply stunning and its many guest reviews reflect this. It was recently fully renovated and is now available for rental. If a two-stop Dalmatian holiday is something you are interested in i.e. min 3 days in bustling Split city and it's great restaurants and shops coupled with a min 4 day stay on the island (only 40 mins away) with its great swimming and pure relaxation please let us know and we may be able to arrange it ...

5/5 Excellent

Incredible house by the sea
This amazing home was even more than we expected and we had high expectancies. The water lapping up to the back door and the sound of the waves was very relaxing. We ate at nearby restaurants and met several locals down by the beach. The manager was kind and helpful. We knew we were going to be traveling in an off season, but we found plenty to do. We have stayed at many VRBO properties. This is definitely one we will alwlays remember as beautiful and peaceful.

5/5 Excellent
