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.

Awesome, spacious apartment within the Diocletian palace area

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful apartment right in the old Diocletian palace area. We were 6 adults and had plenty of space. The apartment is just as shown in the pictures, with two large bedrooms and huge bathrooms. The 3rd bedroom is a good size as well, and is easily closed off with sliding doors at night. It also has 3 full bathrooms (again great for our group). Although there are several restaurants/bars just outside the apartment, it is very quiet at night once you close your windows (and enjoy the air conditioning). We thoroughly enjoyed sitting out and having drinks on the terrace in late afternoon / evening (while deciding where to go to dinner).

The property manager, Baldo, was great to deal with. Upon arrival, he sat down with us and provided lots of information on where to go, what to see, and where to/not to eat. We arranged all our airport and ferry transfers with him. He will even arrange to pick you up or drop you off at the ferry with a golf cart. This was quite helpful as we had quite a bit of luggage with 6 people.

Baldo runs the Gecko Tours company and I highly recommend the Split walking tour through his company. It was a very nice 2 hour intro to Split and its history. We also booked a personal tour through Gecko Tours to visit Mostar and the Kravice waterfalls.

Finally, Stephen and Thea were very easy to deal with and always responded promptly when asking them questions or finalizing our stay.

Without a doubt, you should try and stay here if you get an opportunity. You will love the property and be glad you did.

Beautiful apartment in a truly unique location ...

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four who stayed five nights at Prisca following a weeks stay at the owners other property on the island of Brac . What an amazing combination the two properties turned out to be - both very different but unique in their own ways. Apartment Prisca is a beautifully renovated, stylish and exceptionally spacious apartment located within the ancient Diocletian Palace itself. It is located in one of the quieter streets within the palace and overlooks a couple of small, attractive restaurants and cafes. The atmosphere itself is therefore really quite special - paticularly when sat on the terrace at the end of a day's activity with a glass in hand ! The owners, Steven and Thea, were always available in the background should we need anything and Baldo, the friendly and ever enthusiastic property manager always on hand to share his knowledge of things local! Nothing was too much trouble for him. He spent time with us recommending places and restaurants to visit - advice we took and we were never disappointed. From our base we explored the beautiful city of Split, Marjan Hill, restaurants in the Veli Varos part of town , local attractive beach areas (all within walking distance) . We also arranged a private day trip through Baldo with Gecko Tours to Krka National Patk, Sibenik and enjoyed a traditional meal with a local family ( highly recommended as a trip and as a company to book through) . A fabulous trip all round. We hope to return to Prisca and would recommend it without hesitation !

Thank you for an amazing stay in your apartment. The place was clean, equipped with everything we needed to cook and dine in and a wonderful Terrance which is so far in the palace! We will come again!

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.

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.
