The apartment is in a wonderful location. Steps down to old city & the beach with every attraction accessible in about 10 mins walk. Beautifully clean & very comfortable.
200 kuna taxi ride from airport takes you above the walled city into a quiet residential street. Marko was there to greet us and our jaws dropped when we entered the apartment. It has recently been renovated to an exceptionally high standard - fancy lighting options, beautiful kitchen, wet room and bedroom. There’s a large balcony from the lounge/kitchen which looks straight down onto the old town and harbour. South facing. The bedroom to the side also has a small balcony (too small for sitting on). Marko’s family lives below but this is shielded by well tended vine canopy. Small supermarket within 5 minutes’ walk.
There’s all the equipment you’d need - including sharp knives! Marko’s fiancée is a registered guide, who has first hand knowledge of the ‘homeland war’ of 1991-5, very informed and clear. They both speak perfect English. Very friendly and helpful.
We visited the walled fortifications early in the day to avoid crowds, took the boat to nearby Lokrum which was pretty, shady, with rocky bathing opportunities (take beach shoes), but the boat was pricey. 150 kuna return for a 15 minute journey. Better value was the 100 kuna trip to beautiful Cavtat, about 45 minutes away.
We would certainly return, especially as it’s so easy to get there from our local airport, Birmingham, very good value for high end accommodation. It’s a pity we were only in Dubrovnik for 3 nights around an island hopping/cycling trip. Thank you Marko.
The apt. has been newly redone and is light and airy and very comfortable.
The view from the front balcony (one of 2) is just outstanding over the old town and of the sunset. It is totally private and a great spot for morning coffee, evening wine or just relaxing and looking at the amazing town and sea view.
Yes, there are a lot of stairs into old town, BUT SO WORTH IT !!
On arrival there were cold beverages including a bottle of wine, fresh fruit, cookies and candies. Those details just made the experience even more special.
We did 3 day trips through tour companies from there and the buses stop very close for pickup which was great and there is a grocery store not far away, so very convenient as well.
Would go back for sure and highly recommend as long as mobility isn't an issue.
Wow, the view is spectacular. This is a great location to visit Old Town Dubrovnik (although there are a lot of steps involved) The apartment was very clean, well stocked and quiet. We had some problems with the hot water heater, but Marko and his family were very prompt at responding and correcting the problem for us.
We'll definitely visit again.
The location is very convenient, 10-15 minutes walk down the steps to old town and groceries store. The view of the town from the balcony was stunning. Nice sea breeze in the morning and evening. The walks back up the hill gave us a nice workout but, was well worth the view. Backing our rental car into the gaurage was a little challenging at first due to tight street space and parked cars in front of the garage. The apartment was nothing fancy but, everything worked fine. The kitchen had some basic pantries like butter, salt, pepper, pasta and rice which were handy. The owner was nice and friendly. He welcomed us with a couple of local beers in the fridge. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would recommend the place.
Wonderful apartment, clean, well equipped and has the bonus of one of the best views of all of Dubrovnik. Be warned though the 354 steps from the old town to the apartment are not for the faint of heart. But totally worth it. Would definitely recommend and would stay there again.
Driving for the first time in Dubrovnik is not for the faint of heart, and if you have your own car, you would be wise to have GPS with you, as many of the streets are one way and some are quite narrow. But we found this place with our GPS and were immediately helped up the steps by a member of the owner/family. Communication was great, the apartment had everything we needed, and there was a grocery store a short walk away. You can't beat the view, either! We had a wonderful time here, and while there is quite a bit of uphill and downhill walking (with stairs most of the way) we senior citizens were able to manage it; but for persons with physical limitations it could be difficult. We even walked all the way down the the old city and back up one day, and our two ages total 135! A fine stay.
