“Wonderful Host/Beautiful Home”
Reviewed 10 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in lovely Villa Nautica.

Dusko and his family are wonderful hosts.

Acutely attentive to your needs, Dusko offers himself at every turn for recommendations and any services you may require.

Our family of three kids 10,8, and 7 spent a week here.

The pool was a huge hit. The terraces and decks are wonderful with beautiful gardens and vistas.

The kids loved the upstairs suite and felt as if they had their own apartment.

The air conditioning was great, and the amenities were all there.

Dusko did a great job taking us around the islands on his boat for two days. I highly recommend this service.

The only improvements I could have made would be for the property to be exactly water front. There is an (at times) very busy road between the water and the home which is worrisome with small children. The grounds also have very steep drop offs that would be dangerous for small children.

I would definitely recommend this property and for adults and families without toddlers or infants.

The rental is great, but the best part of the home is the family which comes with it as hosts. Dusko and his family are wonderful.

Villa Nautica

My family booked a weeks vacation at this Villa located in Dubrovnik

The owner lives in the Villa when it's not rented! When it is rented the owner Dusko lives in an apartment right on the premises.

He keeps a keen eye on his guests !

His photos are displayed in the house .The house is spacious there are 4 bedrooms and 4 baths.

On arrival we noticed that there were no soaps and shampoos and limited amenities for a a villa that rents for 800 + euros a day !

There is a nice pool, unfortunately there were not enough towels for bathing and swimming.

The kitchen is well outfitted however while staying at the Villa the sink in the kitchen was backed up.

Unfortunately the owner insisted on fixing the problem himself rather than calling a professional to resolve the problem, this took an entire day and created a mess

Coming from the USA we relied on the advice of the owner as to our day trips and boat rentals.

Each and every instance the owner recommended his boat and housekeeper as well as HIS car service ! Every price he quoted was more than what reputable local companies offered at prices 30 % less than this VILLA owner!

The owner of this Villa would not return my 500 Euro deposit because we did not book our day trips and transportation with him.

Dubrovnik is a wonderful place my family had a wonderful vacation however I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS VILLA NAUTICA

Mr. Blumenfeld,
You firmly booked our yacht for a day trip. We regulary ask 30%
In advance for a such bookings, but as you were our guest in the Villa Nautica too, we did trust your mutual booking confirmation and didn't ask for 30% deposit.
You cancelled yacht excursion just one day before confirmed date and we had to charge you full price of the boat 800 euro for that day, but we did charge you 500 euro only.
Sorry Mr Blumenfeld, but if you did non confirm boat booking 1 month
In advance, we could have another client. Your cancelation was just 24 hours before chartered day and we couldn't get another client in that short period of time.
We do understand your frustration, but you should have been correct to us too.
We would like to have you as our guest again, as we are shure you had great time in our villa.
The owner,
Dusko Kusijanovic

The villa was amazing, modern, well equipped. The gardens were beautifully maintained and the pool was wonderful. Dusko, the owner was very helpful and spoke amazing English, he took us to the shops on multiple occasions. He also took us on an amazing boat trip to the surrounding islands. Overall, the whole stay was wonderful and I would totally recommend it!

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 30 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed as a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 children, ages 6 months, 4 years and 14 years). The villa and the views are absolutely stunning. Dusko, the owner is extremely accommodating and helpful - not only did he ensure we were well looked after at the home but he also personally took us to Bosnia, captained his yacht for one of our best days ever spent island hopping and had great restaurant recommendations.
The villa is very spacious, our teenage daughter especially loved having her own private apartment upstairs. The bedrooms are all very spacious and bright, kitchen is well equipped and with wifi and satellite tv, you're all set. The highlight of the villa is definitely the outdoor spaces - the gardens, the pool and the gazebo/bbq area overlooking the sea are like heaven. Dusko has really put so much care into the villa, it's beautiful. Watching the huge cruise ships pass by is mesmerizing.
There is not much within safe walking distance but taxis are easy to organize and between them and Dusko himself, you'll likely not need a rental anyways. We didn't rent a car and never had any problems.
Small caution for travellers with young children: Villa has many split levels throughout and the outdoor space has a steep cliff egde. This was perfectly okay for our kids and never posed any difficulty for us, but with children who are new at walking/crawling, it might be challenging.
Highly recommend this villa to anyone visiting the Dubrovnik area - it's absolutely perfect!

“This wonderful holiday / villa exceeded all our expectations”
Reviewed 5 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

people found this review helpful

We were a group of 3 couples that have travelled together on a number of occasions and have previously rented villas in Italy, France, Spain and various countries in the Far East. We are very discerning, are happy to pay a fair price for quality accommodations but expect good value for money and we are not very easy to please. I must say that Villa Nautica is by far the best holiday villa we have ever rented and this was the most enjoyable and relaxing time I've had in years.

The house is beautifully designed and thoroughly equipped with all the modern facilities one would expect at this level of accommodation. The views from every room are stunning and the beautifully landscaped gardens and swimming pool look out onto the clear waters of Dubrovnik harbour and the awesome sight of luxury cruise ships gliding past as you enjoy your meals or sip drinks on the terrace beneath the trees.

The owner of this property and our host, Dusko, went to great lengths to ensure that all our needs were met, offered comprehensive guidance and advice on all the wonderful delights that Dubrovnik has to offer and made himself available throughout the week to personally accompany us to various local attractions that we would otherwise have not seen or experienced. His recommendations for restaurants were flawless and I can safely say that this man knows his food. He also knows Dubrovnik and loves sharing it with his guests. I very highly recommend this property for a great holiday and I am already planning my own return here next year or even sooner if I can arrange it.

“Extremely memorable place!”
Reviewed 5 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This was the best holiday rental we have had. The house had the best view of the port of Dubrovnik. We would watch the Cruise Ships dock into the port while we were eating breakfast in the garden.
The host, Dusko,was very charming and hospitable. He could see that we would have difficulty driving into Dubrovnik city centre so he immediately offered to drive us in to the city centre and pick us up. On the second day we went to visit the islands on the Dalmatian coast in Dusko's boat which we hired for the day. He took us to a restaurant on one of the Islands and we were able to choose our own lobsters out of the sea which were then cooked to perfection. Dusko also drove us to Bosnia and Herzegovina to see Mostar and Medjugorje. Mostar is a must see for anyone visiting Bosnia. One evening he made a special black ink risotto and grilled fish which was better than many of the places we ate in while in Dubrovnik.
We were made to feel very welcome in this house and I would highly recommend it to any of my friends.
Not only will you have a great place to stay in but you will be thoroughly pampered by your host.
Have never learned more about a country in one week than with Dusko and his lovely house by the sea.
