Welcome to the
Stone House Marina
In 2010 we decided to return to the untouched nature and the quiet life of our ancestors, to the native village of our grandmother. In the little village Jakusi, in the Marina Municipality, we found an old “shoemaker’s house” and several abandoned stone barns without electricity and running water. This didn’t stop us. On the contrary, this oasis of peace hidden in a picturesque Mediterranean landscape, just a few minutes’ drive from the beach, has inspired us to give a new life to the old “shoemaker’s house” and renovate the house and the garden in harmony with the untouched nature that surrounds us.
The basic idea was to combine our traditional Dalmatian stone building with environmentally-friendly and sustainable materials, and to preserve and re-use the original parts of a century old houses. This way we gave new life to old stones, making them part of the interior of our houses.
Apart from the stone used in the houses’ interior, we used a special type of wood from Posavina called “lambs”, which grows by the river and is everlasting. The furniture in the house and all the surrounding buildings, as well as the fireplace and the wine cellar are made of this special wood and are entirely handmade.
Stone House Marina is a traditional Dalmatian house adapted to the needs of modern man, where rustic and modern details intertwine. The whole property has a green oasis growing from the stone, enriched with Mediterranean herbs and flowers.
Thanks to its location, Stone House Marina offers you a wide range of activities promising unforgettable holidays. We will be at your disposal and will do our best to make your vacation as pleasant as possible.
Inside the main house there is a comfortable
living room, a luxury room with a king-size bed and a bathroom. On the first

Trogir is a remarkable example of urban continuity. The orthogonal street plan of this island settlement dates back to the Hellenistic period and it was embellished by successive rulers with many fine public and domestic buildings and fortifications. Its beautiful Romanesque churches are complemented by the outstanding Renaissance and Baroque buildings from the Venetian period.
The story of Split is already 17 centuries old, dating to the time the Roman Emperor Diocletian decided to build his Palace right on the peninsula near the great Roman city Salona, where he wanted to spend the last years of his life. During these 1700 years the Palace slowly turned into a city, which to this day lures with its rich tradition, glorious history and beauty of its natural and cultural heritage. Diocletian Palace and the entire historical core of Split have been on the World
Krka National Park
The national park is a vast and primarily unaltered area of exceptional natural value, including one or more preserved or insignificantly altered ecosystems. The purpose of the park is primarily to serve science, culture, education and recreation, while tourism activities have also been introduced for its visitors.
Including the submerged part of the river at the mouth, the Krka River is 72.5 km long, making it the 22nd longest river in Croatia. It springs in the foothills of the Dinara mountain range, 2.5 km northeast of Knin. With its seven waterfalls and a total drop in altitude of 242 m, the Krka is a natural and karst phenomenon. The travertine waterfalls of the Krka River are the fundamental phenomenon of this river.
Marina is a small place located in the Bay with the same name; the place is the Centre of the Municipality, which consists of 15 more small places. Marina has about 1000 inhabitants, while the whole municipality has about 5000 inhabitants. The good transport connections and proximity of the ancient cities of Trogir (12 km) Split (36 km) and Šibenik (36 km) offers you the ability to reach any of them in short time and to enjoy the ambience of UNESCO’s Cities. Local residents have been engaged in fishing and agriculture for a long time. On the surrounding hills grow the centuries-old olive trees; it is therefore not surprising that this region is widely known for its production of olive oil. Marina is dominated by the picturesque fortification, the former mansion of the bishops of Trogir from the 15th century. Above the Marine is located Drid hill that dominates the entire area. It used to be the seat of Drid County, whose ruins can still be seen on the hill.
