Villa Antea
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 June 2011

The Villa Antea is a little way out of the centre of Dubrovnik, but very close to a direct bus that takes you to the gates of the Old City. The apartment that we stayed in was very clearn and well-equipped, and there was a terrace with a partial view of the sea. There are great sun loungers on the premises, and an added bonus was the ability to use the pool facilities (including pool towels) at the Valamar resort up the road. fMaja in reception was very helpful, and the welcome drinks on arrival was a nice touch.

They prefer payment in cash, but can take credit cards if necessary.

I arranged the trip spontaneously (read: no planning) and booked one apartment at Villa Antea one day before. I had not read any reviews beforehand, so I went there without any expectation. This place surprisingly has a genuine home feel and peaceful, and it has whatever I needed to make my short stay enjoyable. The villa is run by a very nice family (father Antun) and one excellent friendly staff (Maja). When you need assistance, it was as if this place were full with an uncle, aunty, cousins that are eager to welcome you with excellent home made brandy while giving you straightforward advice/ assistance to make your stay comfortable. No worry, they are also very professionals and leave you to enjoy your space and peace by yourself. My apartment is well equipped with spacious balcony with view to the expansive sea, mountain and some quiet neighbor houses at great distance :) Kitchen is well equipped with salt, sugar and cooking utensils, so I needed only to buy the necessities for cooking warm breakfast at the supermarket close by. The bus stop is 100 m away, goes every 10 min from very early morning to 1am to the old town, no hassle at all to get where ever, despite I am normally a car-driving addict. It has a very reliable wifi connection, so I could work in early morning before swimming in the sea or go to the old town. If you prefer to swim in the swimming pool, you can do that too at the nearby hotel connected to Villa Antea, but no fish, open water, nice waves, and people's watching. I had really a relax stay there, it's like home in Croatia. I cannot say that it has the best facility, the best location, the best interiors and so on, like which other exorbitantly expensive hotels might have.... But it is a comfortable home with the warmest personalities around that are eager to make your stay in Croatia very comfortable. Certainly will go back there again and recommend it highly to others.

After missing the exit for Babin Kuk we recovered pretty well and found the apartments relatively easily. Parked off the street and Maja met us and took us downstairs for check in. She really is a gem and a fountain of information, hope her bosses appreciate how much of an asset she is! After checking in, Maja offered us a welcome drink of a local liqueur and some dried figs and almonds, delicious. Our apartment was really nice and well equipped with toaster, kettle, coffee maker and usual dishes, cutlery etc. They also supplied oil & vinegar and salt and pepper and a steamer bowl for microwaving vegetables etc. We had a nice balcony with a washing line which was much appreciated. The only constructive feedback re the room is that it would have been nice to have a small sofa to fit two rather than just one relaxing chair. However, not a big deal as there were other chairs available. The apartments were on bus route 6 taking you into the old town in 5/10 minutes for 12 cuna or for 10 cuna if you walk down the hill to the next bus stop where you can buy tickets before you board. There is also a small shopping center there with a Tommy supermarket and several restaurants and caffe bars. Free wifi was also much appreciated. We really enjoyed our trip to Dubrovnik and the Villa Antea was a great place to stay with easy access to the old town. The walk on top of the old town walls was awesome.

Just returned from a short trip to Croatia. Villa Antea is really well equipped for a comfortable stay. Could do with an oven as it is self catering and you would struggle to cook a meal. The apartment overall was comfortable and the hospitality was great on arrival, very welcoming. Well situated for the Coca Cabana beach and the promenade down the hill. Just over £1 each for a bus ride to the Old Town was a bargain, even if the journey was more than a little "personal" with other travellers. If you are travelling as a four it is almost as cheap to catch a taxi, far more comfortable.
Thanks Villa Antea our short trip was made all the more pleasant for our stay with you.

Very helpful owners. Spacious apartment with easy access to the sea, beautiful bar (walking distance) and wonderful Dubrovnik (short bus ride). Great place to holiday with children. They all loved it (12,11 and 9). We liked the fact that the staff , who were very welcoming and available if needed, were pretty invisible. (We were even lent a laptop for the week which the children loved!)

We stayed at Villa Antea for 3 nights. It was our first stay after travelling to Croatia from Vermont. We had arranged to have them pick us up at the airport. The driver was there and waiting as promised.

When we arrived at Villa Antea, The owner and reception came out to the patio to greet us, big handshakes and hearty welcome. We were then introduced to the area with a local map, highlights, and suggestions for getting around. All this while under the shade on the patio, enjoying local figs, and their homemade cherry brandy. Delightful welcome to Croatia. A wonderful beginning to a country far from home.
