“Good location, nice and helpfull owner.”
Reviewed 29 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The apartment is quite small but it was roomy enough for our family with two children. Anyway, we spent most of our time in the outside terrace which is quite big and has a nice ocean view. You can also see the old town from there.
The location was perfect for us. A 100 meters walk to the beach and a 5 minutes walk to the old town.
Emica, the owner is very helpfull and lovely and she gave us good tips about the places to visit. She lives in the same courtyard so it was to easy to ask for advice if we needed any.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
How easy was key pickup/access to the property?

“Best views Dubrovnik has to offer”
Reviewed 22 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

EMI 1 had a lot to live up to based on the previous reviews left here. And all I can say is that they matched them.

My family and I (mother and father), wanted to venture out into Eastern Europe and saw Croatia as the perfect stepping stone. And it is. We decided upon Dubrovnik as it seem to have the perfect mixture of scenery, sun, sea and history. I doubt you will have a moment of boredom there.

On the day of our arrival, Emica kindly greeted us and helped us from the taxi she booked for us. To EMI 1 there are about 40 steps to climb to get there. They're are not steep, but it is something to keep in mind. Dubrovnik is a town of steps considering its age and mountainous location so this cannot be helped. However, when you come up to the private terrace you'll soon see that climbing those steps is worth it. The view are stunning. I've been to a few places, but nothing comes close to it. Directly in front of you have a view of the island of Lokrum, which is a 15 minute boat trip away from the old town at a cost of 100 Kunas each. Well worth it for its cool breeze and views. And to the far right you have a view of the old town itself. Stunning. Like something out of a James Bond movie.

The apartment itself is clean and can easily sleep 4. The sofa bed in the open plan sitting/diner room is a double, and there's one double bed in the back room which overlooks another private terrace where you'll be able to hang your clothes after washing it in the washing machine.

Comes with all the mod cons, including wifi, which was exceptional, didn't drop signal not once. There's 5 star hotels with wifi that this apartment will leave to dust. A tv, which we didn't use not once (why would you with views like this?). An electric cooker, kettle, microwave and sandwich maker.

Ok, this wouldn't be a review if I didn't mention any down sides right? Ok here are a few:

The washing machine looks like it is at the end of its working life so may need replacing soon.

And the steps.... A part from that... Nope nothing.

Banje Beach is less than a minute away. Old town a brisk 5 minute walk away. Two local shops a 2 and 5 minute walk away. Plenty of restaurants if you don't fancy cooking. Although with views like that on the terrace, you'll be very tempted to make a simple meal yourself and sit outside and just enjoy the views.

Dubrovnik is magical... as if you are in a Elizabethan play.

Emica's hospitality is first class.

I would highly recommend this place.

“Doesn't get any better!”
Reviewed 8 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016
1
person found this review helpful

Wow....What a stunning location! The apartment exceeded my expectations and they were pretty high based on the great reviews. The apartment was clean and modern. Loved the shower and Laundry facilities but lets get to the brass tax!
a.) The terrace is spectacular, if you like having a morning coffee or unwinding at the end of the day with friends and a glass of wine I don't know how you could ask for more. The view and the privacy. Outstanding.
b.) Location to Banje Beach (1 min walk). Grocery store (2 min walk) and Old Town (5 min walk) were easy and scenic.
c.) Emica was a most gracious host and made sure we had everything we needed. Even beach towels. Her insight on the area, being a long time resident was also very interesting.

After seeing what Dubrovnik has to offer my only concern on booking my next trip there will be that I get EMI 1 booked...Doesn't get any better! Thank you Emica

“Lovely terraced apartment with view of Old Town and Port”
Reviewed 5 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This family owned apartment is perfect for a small family or a couple. Emica is welcoming and spends time to orient you to the city. Our favorite place in the apartment is the terrace for outdoor coffee and relaxation. Only a five minute walk to Old Town at Ploce Gate. The town beach is steps away. Highly recommend a tour of the city walls. If you love Game of Thrones, this is the place to be!

My husband and 21 year old daughter and I were looking forward to our first visit to Dubrovnik. WOW we couldn't have been more happier. Communicating with Emica was very easy, efficient and warm. Transportation was arranged by Emica and we were greeted by her at the apartment. I have been renting apartments for our vacations for many years and she has been one of the most gracious and warmest hosts we have ever come across - thank you!
The apartment thankfully had very functional air conditioning and we were very comfortable after a long hot day of exploring. Everything worked very well and found the apartment to be very clean when we arrived. We loved the terrace with the breathtaking view of the Old City. We enjoyed watching the various yachts arriving in the port throughout the days. We were thrilled with the location as we were able to walk everywhere. The recommendations Emica provided us were excellent!
No need to look further, this is a beautiful clean apartment in an excellent location (not too many stairs & close to Banje Beach & Old city walls) with a very welcoming host. We highly recommend it!

My cousin and I visited Dubrovnik and stayed here for 5 days. We were greeted by Emi with glasses of juice and cookies, which was so kind and sweet especially after how long we had been travelling by bus. Check-in was very smooth and Emi took us around the entire apartment showing us how everything worked. She has truly thought of everything!!! There was even cold water in the refrigerator and laundry soap and a line to hang clothes!! The view is a whole other story. It was perfect. Even on the day we arrived with thunderstorms and torrential rains, the view of the old city and the island of Lokrum was still indescribably beautiful. We really enjoyed the terrace also. The apartment is situated in the perfect place. You are 2 minutes from Banja beach (if that) and about 5 minutes from the Dubrovnik city walls. There are 2 smaller grocery stores very close by. Emi truly has a gem of an apartment and when I come back with my cousin or my family, we will definitely be staying here!! Thank you for an amazing stay, Emi!
