Well what can i say these apartments are amazing the host was so helpful. Apartments are close to shops resturant and bakery which is open 24 hours a day.Beach only a 10 min walk.The rooms are big and clean and the pool area is lovely.Thank you for making my whole family so welcome.
Marija was a lovely host! Stayed in touch before and during the trip. Gave loads of great tips and information upon arrival (kindly collected us from the airport - $35 each way). Helped book us a day trip to montengro - unfortunately the bus never came to collect us but she got straight on the phone and got us a free trip to the Elephati islands - not complaining as my friend and I heard there was a lot of time wasted at borders!
Great location with cafe's/restaurants in the vicinity if you're not keen to head into old town after a long day out! Bakery and supermarket around the corner. Bus stop pretty much outside the apartment. Max 20min walk into old town and it's really pleasant. We only used the bus twice and never used a taxi.
Would love to come back and would definitely stay here again" Once again, big thanks to Marija and Ely (who has fascinating stories of the war to share should you get time!) who were very kind and helpful!
We were on a month long journey in Croatia and Dubrovnik was our last destination.
We arrived via catamaran ferry from Split/Hvar, and took a taxi to the apartment for 70 Kunas. It was around noon when we arrived, pushed the "Reception" button at the front gate and Marija (who lives next door) met us right away. After showing us the apartment, Marija spent almost an hour telling us about Dubrovnik and places we could visit based on our interests and the time we have. It was very extremely helpful.
Marija also helped us reserve a special lamb dinner, show us a couple of "must try" places for sandwiches and ice cream pancakes in the Old City. They all turned out to be amazing.
Location of the Apartment is good, it is walking distance to Lapad and a short bus ride to Old City. It is also well equipped and very spacious.
Thank you Marija, your hospitality and suggestions have turned our visit to your beautiful city truly memorable.

The California Apartments was the perfect choice for our trip to Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik is an amazing city, and our choice of accommodation made our holiday extra special, especially as the owners Marija and Ely were so welcoming and provided lots of recommendations for where to go and where to eat. We were really well looked after, and Marija went out of her way to make sure we had a nice stay. The apartments are very reasonably priced, very clean and well located for the Old Town, Lapad and Babin Kuk. The new pool area also provides a peaceful and relaxing escape from all the sightseeing. We also tried sea kayaking at sunset, which is a must try. All in all,I couldn't recommend The California Apartments enough for a stay in Dubrovnik.
Well what can I say
It was home away from home except they had a gorgeous pool,which we don't
It was well stocked nothing missing
It was ideally situated nothing to far
Lots of bars and resturants not to far.
The hosts were amazing
I was recommended this place and I will do the same
Thanks Marija xx

Photos shown on this page look like room 5 where we stayed for 7 nights September 2016
Excellent accommodation for self catering. Exactly as described with balcony terrace and private pool. Very clean, secure and quiet, except for the traffic noise at the front.
We booked using Expedia which I wouldn't use again due to unexpected extra charges of £16 so I'd recommend to contact the hosts direct.
Hosts Marija and Eli were fantastic , great service Very helpful with local info and speak perfect English. We emailed and arranged for Eli to pick us up at the airport (for 35€) He was waiting with our name on sign and helped with local info and local history during the taxi ride.
Marija had prepared the apartment with Bubbly, Chocolates at bedside and homemade orange peel sweets for our arrival. During our stay she brought us homemade cherry liqueur and kept in touch via WhatsApp so she was available at any time if we needed anything. Everything was provided including shampoo, soap , washing up liquid etc so we had only food to buy. also great wifi.
This accommodation is in an ideal location for 10 min bus trip to old town (25 -30 min walk) and 10 min walk to either Port Gruz or Lapad beach (pebbles) where we watched the stunning sunset and visited the unusual cave bar. There are banks, exchange, supermarkets, cafés, bars, restaurants(££), fast food and also bus stops within a few mins walk. Our experience was that banks gave better rates than exchange offices (change Bank of England notes sterling).
Recommend not only the old town for food (£££) night life (with free street music) and the trip round the old city walls but also the cable car to top of mont X to experience the magnificent & spectacular views of the whole area of Dubrovnik. Both were pricey at 120 kn (£15) but worth it.
