I stayed here with my wife for a week and we absolutely loved it!
I was genuinely surprised with the place, the staff were very friendly and welcoming and the apartments were nice, clean, spacious and fully airconditioned.
The villa is a family run business with 14 apartments, located in the Lapad bay, about 150-200m from the pedestrian area where all the hotels, bars and restaurants are. It's on a hill, surrounded by other villas and pine trees, it was truly wonderful and the little climb is something we didn't mind after a good meal. Not for the elderly though, keep in mind you'll have to go uphill for about 200m every day.
It's a short stroll to get into the action and yet it's in a quiet location. We stayed in the apartment "C" which is one bedroom, separate kitchen and separate bathroom, bedlinen was cleaned and changed every day, in fact they cleaned the entire place every day including the dishes.
The only negative thing I can mention is the fact that we didn't have a terrace or a balcony and thus didn't have a view. That didn't bother me at all, but if you like lounging in your own apartment you might want to ask for a bigger one with a view.
The staff were very friendly and professional, and they really made us feel at home. We organised airport pickup from the Villa and they collected us in a nice air-conditioned minivan. The day we were arriving Croatia were playing Brazil in the world cup and I expressed interested in watching the match, which was starting in about an hour after we landed. Our driver told us there are plenty of bars and caffes where the match will be shown, but that we also have a TV in the apartment and if we'd like to stay and watch the match there he could organise some food for us.
When we arrived the lady of the house had prepared a feast, there were half a dozen different kinds of sliced meats, cheeses, a nice salad, and we had two bottles of local wine in the fridge as a welcoming drink. There was enough food for 4 people, and also a basket full of fresh fruit! Needless to say we stayed in that evening and relaxed, and to top it all off they did this free of charge.
The old town of Dubrovnik is a short drive away and there's excellent public transport. There's a bus every 10 minutes from Lapad and it only costs about a euro. This was a perfect base, and as much as I've enjoyed the old town of Dubrovnik, I still think Lapad is a much nicer area to stay in.
I'm already looking forward to my next visit!
