“Beautiful apartment, wonderful host, didn't want to leave!!”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Maria's apartment in Dubrovnik was absolutely perfect for our stay. Maria kindly picked us up from the airport and also dropped us off at the bus station at the end of our stay which was so kind of her - she even took us on a tour of the area and to the shops! As for the apartment itself, you can't fault it - great terrace balcony with table for brekkie, beautifully decorated and furnished (a lot of love has gone into it!) and the bed was so comfy! The shower was great and she has a cat friend called Vicky who is so cute and was always around to greet us on the porch at the end of the day! There is a regular bus to the old town from the bottom of the steps (yes there are quite a few but exercise is good for on holiday isn't it!) I would definitely come back here - it's a home from home! Thank you Maria!

“Absolutely Fantastic Apartment”
Reviewed 30 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We have just arrived back home from this truly amazing place and feel compelled to write a review straight away because of how awesome it is!

If you are looking for a holiday apartment in Dubrovnik then look no further.

Firstly, the host Marija is an exceptional lady, kind, generous and a friend to have when in Croatia. She had us collected from the airport on arrival and when we got to the apartment, after a short settling in, she gave us a tour of the local area in her own car, then to a supermarket where we were able to grab some home comforts (pringles) amongst other things. She was there for us throughout our entire stay and could not do more to help.

Secondly, the apartment itself is breathtaking, beautifully decorated, well equipped and comfortable. A dishwasher, washing machine were a bonus as well as everything you might need whilst on holiday. The terrace is beautiful and south facing so you get the sun all day long, and the outdoor furniture (sunloungers, table, chairs, parasol) are all excellent quality. There is an outdoor BBQ too which we never got around to using because of all the great places to eat!

Thirdly, the location - it is at the top of a hill, and many reviews mention the steps, yes they are there, and yes in 34 degree heat they are hard to climb, but do not be put off! They are worth every bead of sweat to get to this apartment. If you don't want to climb them, then you can walk up the road which is easier. Marija offered many times to pick us up if we just text her and if she was available. It really is not that much of a problem, my fiancé had a bad leg prior to the trip and still managed the stairs. All that aside, it is perfectly located for buses, the 2A literally 2 minute walk from the door Mon to Fri which takes you straight to the old town, or the 6 at weekends after a 5-10 minute walk to another stop that runs everyday. It is walking distance to Lapad, which is lovely, has loads of restaurants, a nice beach and plenty to do.

In summary, this is a great place to stay, perfect In every way, I would thoroughly recommend this holiday apartment for a stay in Dubrovnik.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 28 June 2015 for a stay in August 2013

This is one of the best apartments we have ever stayed in.its got everything you need.the bed is very comfortable.There is a washing machine and 2 toilets.the shower is very fast and the added bonus of a bath.The outside space is brilliant and there is a barbecue.the views are stunning.the owner maria,gave us cakes 2 times which were delicious.she arranged for someone to collect us from the airport and she took us to the supermarket when we arrived.you will not be disappointed if you book The only downfall is the amount of steps back up (345) but there is a road and taxis are cheap.Its near to the beach and excellent restaurants.

“ABSOLUTELY FIRST CLASS !!!”
Reviewed 5 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This is the most beautiful and well kept apartment we have ever stayed in and is definately worthy of five star rating. The furnishings are classy and so very homely and Marija the lady who owns it is very special with such a kind welcoming heart ,not only picking us up from the airport but also had lots of lovely fresh produce in the apartment for our arrival and during our stay leaving us fresh fruit and treats from the area. We have stayed in many lovely hotels but this special apartment is by far the best. Located in a lovely quiet area with very comfortable bed we slept extremely well but you are only a 5-10 min walk to Lapad centre or a quick 15 min bus ride in to old town and the buses are so efficient running every 15 mins. It has a fabulous private balcony with great views and you will feel totally relaxed in the lovely surroundings .
If you are looking to stay in Dubrovnik look no further because this is one very special place and very special owner, and we are so thankful to Marijia for making our holiday so special !!!

“A beautiful holiday”
Reviewed 27 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We have just returned from a 9 day stay here, which we loved. The apartment is very comfortable, smart and overall well equipped; and Marija is a great host - incredibly hospitable and helpful. We felt so relaxed within the apartment and it's verandah that we just stayed in at times, not feeling the need to rush everywhere, and so had a relaxing time. There is a partial restriction on the view from the verandah (it's still good), and lots of steps down to the town centre (there is a longer route round without using these), but none of this detracted for us from the over-riding pleasure of this holiday of which the accommodation was the central pleasure.

“Beautiful hill condo with incredibly helpful owner”
Reviewed 27 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

person found this review helpful

In rainy Dubrovnik after a month on the road we could have been depressed but with the incredible hospitality of Marija and her lovely well decorated apartment we rallied. Marija has a flare for decor and the wonderful tiles, rugs and paintings made a lovely surrounding. All amenities were present with a small but well thought out kitchen area. Spacious bedroom, closed in porch area and laundry area created a roomy environment to spread out. The bed was comfortable and finally someone provided more than one skimpy towel. The view from the apartment is panoramic but you better be fit because the stairs up to this view are steep and long. I am an older adult, physically fit, so I could do it with some stops to deep breathe but the walk was well worth the treat of staying here.
The best part is Marija herself who I now consider a friend for life. She came and rescued us when we could not find the place, took us grocery shopping, found us walking in the rain and brought us home and was full of information about how to approach sightseeing in Dubrovnik. And she did an airport transfer at 5 am in the morning as part of the deal. We love her! There were also nice toiletry touches, laundry and dishwasher soap provided and the rate was very reasonable for the area.
Good bus service nearby provides a ride in 10 minutes to the old town and my husband and I took a lovely walk into the old town in 45 minutes sightseeing along the way. Also there are two nice restaurants just 5 -6 minutes away, Eden and Atlantic. We discovered you could take the elevator from the Kompos Hotel to the 9th floor and cut out half the steps.
Overalll a wonderful place to complete our month in Croatia and the Balkans.

“Beautiful apartment”
Reviewed 25 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

You couldn't give this apartment any less than 5 stars Maria is a fantastic host that like everyone else had said shows you around, takes you to the supermarket on arrival and makes sure to point out where you need to go! The apartment it's self is top quality from the interior to the balcony, the steps up from the beach may be an issue for people but if you don't want to tackle the steps you can get the bus around and walk up a flat gradient of a hill,This was the nicest apartment I stayed in during my visit to Croatia and I would recommend to anyone!
