My fiancee and I stayed here for 3 nights after booking purely based on reviews here. Everything that other reviewers have written about Ante is absolutely correct and I have experienced it. He is a giant of a man, but such a gentle giant. Extremely kind, polite and one of the most helpful individuals I have ever met, always willing to do a bit extra for his guests. If he ran into us when we were on the way out, he would always offer to drop us off to where ever we were going (provided he wasn't waiting for new guests to arrive etc).
Listen carefully to Ante's recommendations when it comes to activities, restaurants, bus/ferry routes and times, and just about anything else - his tips were very useful for us.
We stayed in the garden view room which we thought was a comfortable size and convenient as it has it's own private ensuite. The rooms are very spotless and are given a complete clean / makeover even if the guests stay for one night only (I was able to witness this as a couple of the rooms were booked for one night only during our stay).
The location is a bit far (as in, not walking distance to Old Town), but you will not find anything closer for less money. Either way, if you want to get around the different areas of Dubrovnik (e.g. Lapad peninsula, beaches in the east etc), you will have to use the buses. We didn't mind the 5-10 minute bus trip to and from home. Public transport functions very well in Dubrovnik and we felt safe at all times, even when we walked around to and from bus stops at night (after 10-11pm).
We also used the laundry service, which was very convenient as the clothes come back dry and smelling great (they do not use washing powder, but rather a special liquid washing detergent which is gentle on the clothes and smells fantastic).
Free wi-fi was also useful as we could keep in touch with family back in Australia via Skype.
Highly recommend this place - it is Ante's pride and joy and I am pretty sure he will do just about anything to ensure his guests have a pleasurable stay.
