“Perfect Spot outside Dubrovnik”
Reviewed 1 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My wife and I staying at the Villa Rosa apartment for 5 nights in July 2015. Though the unit is right off the main road it really is a perfect location. Short walk to the water and to the port Zaton which has more than enough good restaurants to avoid requiring a drive into Dubrovnik. However, if you want to go to Dubrovnik it is a short drive or bus ride into the old city. Bus stop is conveniently located across the step. In addition a small, but very busy market is a few steps away. The apartment has a full kitchen thus easy enough to stay in and enjoy the view from the balcony.

Few other positives: (1) washing machine was very critical as it was very hot during our stay and (2) an air conditioner in the bedroom as once again very hot during our stay. As noted right on the main road, not really a highway, so if you have a car you immediately head north/south to a number of destinations. There a literally hundreds of places to stop along the road for a swim.

Micheal was a great host and it was a 100% no hassle stay.

Thank you for your kind words. You and your wife were great guests and as I said, if you had stayed another week, you'd know the area better than I. I gave recent guests some tips for swimming, you had told me about - the island you can walk out to. They loved it.

Thanks again,

Michael

“More than a great choice!”
Reviewed 7 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Upon arrival to Villa Rosa I was shocked by the charm. The views were so picturesque that I couldn't help question whether or not the sight was real. The natural beauty of the region cannot be summed up in words.
I reached these conclusions shortly after I discovered the private terrace that complements the amenities I had with the apartment. The bed was well made, the kitchenette was at the ready, the bathroom met every need, and there was plenty of seating to use for a small lunch/dinner with new friends. Speaking of friends, I recommend taking up your host Michael on any offer he makes to show you around. Very knowledgeable and can steer you clear of any tourist traps.
The apartment is quite conveniently located as well. There is a small mini mart store located down the street and is in walking distance. Public transportation is very easy to use getting back to the apartment from the old city of Dubrovnik. You are given private keys to your apartment as well so you have complete freedom to come and go as you need.

Overall I am quite pleased with my stay at Villa Rosa and will definitely return as soon as I can. Hopefully sooner rather than later!

“Superb location, excellent facilities, warm welcome!”
Reviewed 23 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Have just returned from Villa Rosa, the perfect location to catch some autumn sunshine. Our only regret is that this was a short break and not a long holiday! The apartment has the most spectacular view, and is comfortable and well equipped. The accommodation choices are so flexible that it would be possible to rent as a couple, family, or a small group of friends. Our host Michael has lived in Croatia for a number of years and so has a wealth of local knowledge to share and an obvious love for the region. He is an excellent cook, so make sure you take up the offer of a meal. Michael's good friend is a sommelier and so the wine menu and advice is extensive!
The beautiful Old City of Dubrovnik is a just a 10 minute bus ride, and there is so much else to do in the area (Michael will provide you with the details). However the highlight for us was to savour the views and the ambience of the Dalmatian Coast: from the moment you open the shutters in the morning until the last evening drink on the verandah.

“Gem of a place, steps from the Adriatic sea and close to Old Town”
Reviewed 2 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I would highly recommend this property. I stayed there for 6 nights and had a wonderful experience. The apartment is spacious with a dining table, fully stocked kitchenette, family room/ TV and bedroom. The unit has all modern finishes and the is very comfortable. The private terrace and outside views are stunning and we spent many evenings watching the sunset. There is a grocery just 50m that is fully stocked and you just cross the street to get to the Adriatic sea. A wonderful location! The drive to Old Town takes 15 min and the unit is directly on the bus line if you don't have a car.

The property owner, Michael, is an excellent cook and great resource. He is knowledgeable about the area and has great travel and restaurant tips.

Staying here was a delight! I would highly recommend and hope to return soon
