We stayed at Villa Ragusa for three nights in September and loved it. It is outside the city walls to the south - and while we had initially considered staying in the old town, we realized upon arrival that we had made a wise decision. Provided you are physically fit (there are more than 100 steps down to the street, and you of course have to get back up them eventually), the walk into town is easy and scenic - and you avoid all of the noise and crowds found within the city walls.
The apartment has a small balcony with a cocktail table and two chairs - and from there you have a fabulous view of the walls and rooftops of Dubrovnik, the harbor with its cruise ships, and some amazing sunsets.
The furnishings are in good condition and the living area is spacious. The kitchen has some basic pots and pans for cooking, and the washing machine located in the bathroom was very helpful in cleaning our clothing before moving on to our next stop in Croatia. The one suggestion we would have for additional furnishings would be for this unit to have its own coffee maker - while there is one in the hallway which is shared among the three units on the floor, there were times when we went looking to borrow it and found that another room had it in use. However, that was a minimal inconvenience compared to all of the good things about this apartment.
The family that manages the property is very friendly and helpful. They arranged transportation, assisted with our luggage, and provided some good recommendations for restaurants.
If I had plans to return to Dubrovnik in the near future I would be trying to keep this apartment secret, so I could be sure to get a reservation - I can't imagine any place in the area that I would prefer, having now seen some of the other options.
