“Very nice apartments and great hospitality”
Reviewed 13 February 2013

The apartment was perfect designed. We were staying in Villa Mar apartments for 4 nights in May with our children having great time there. It is very quiet, and beach, restaurants, promenade, everything is close.Cant wait to visit your apartment and Dubrovnik again. Thank you!

Apartments are in very nice conditions, well furnished and owner is lovely. Distance to Dubrovnik half an hour by walking but there is bus stop not far away. Very quiet location and top comfortable beds. The Dubrovnik is a very pretty and beautiful city.

I stayed at Villa Mar while on business in Dubrovnik
There are 3 small apartments situated above the family home. The apartments are in Lapad a pleasant part of Dubrovnik within easy reach of conference hotels and the Old Town.
The apartment I stayed in was plenty spacious for one and would have been fine for a couple. There is a double bed in one room with a sofa bed in the kitchen area.
The apartment is quite new and well furnished. All the facilities you could wish for are there; computer, TV, DVD player, microwave, fridge, toaster etc etc... There's even a small washing machine and a clothes hanger out on the small terrace. Although you can't actually see the sea from the terrace, the views are pretty and there is no noise at night
Communications with the owner both when booking and when arriving were excellent. I was picked up from the airport and taken back again which makes travelling much more efficient.
There are lots of bars and restaurants within walking distance and getting the bus to the Old Town could not be easier.
The apartment was spotless with all the cleaning equipment that one could need. There was tea and coffee and even a bottle of beer in the fridge!
All in all, an enjoyable stay in an excellent apartment. Superb value for money when you consider what you would pay in a hotel.
Highly recommended.
Their website summarises it well www.dubrovnik-villamar.net

We booked this hotel via their own website some time ago, after reading favourable reports on this website, and were very glad we did!
Upon arriving at the airport out "driver" (actually a very nice friend of the owner) was there as agreed waving our name card in the air! We were promptly driven to the apartment to be greeted by the owner who showed us the room.
We thought it was very good value for money....a very large double bed, ample storage, air con, internet (for a small charge if required), fully stocked brand new kitchen with appliances, washing machine, nice balcony etc etc. It was spotlessly clean and it was lovely to sit on the balcony enjoying a beer as the sun set before our night out.
Lapad is ok as far as areas go, it has several shops and restaurants, and is quieter than Dubrovnik. We did venture into Dubrovnik on an evening several times, but it is quite a walk. We walk quite fast and it took us a good 40 minutes each way, up and down hills, which proved hard work in the extreme heat and humidity. There is a bus stop very close by though, so unless you are gluttons for punishment (like us!) I would recommend doing that.
Dubrovnik is really beautiful and so well kept. It gets very busy with tourists though, so be prepared! I would recommend a walk around the city walls, and also one of the boat trips to neighbouring islands, very pretty. We found Dubrovnik (and indeed Lapad) to be rather expensive, and we were also a bit dissappointed with the restaurants, and the service in them. If you like fish you will be fine, but as I do not, I struggled to find anything else, and the meat is not great. Vegetarians may struggle generally in Dubrovnik.
Back to the apartment....The air con was great, and definately necessary! The bed was so comfortable, we slept solidly on every single night, helped no doubt by the quiteness of the apartments, as it is up some stairs there is no audible noise from the street.
If I am being picky, there are only 2 things that I could suggest improvement on. One is the hot water....same old story...despite being very frugle with it there just was not enough. By the end of even a 4 min shower it was starting to run out, if there are more than 2 of you, it would be a bit of a pain. I have encountered this in many countries before though, so hardly revelationary.
The only other minor gripe was that the fridge did not seem to be very cold despite being very new. Ice cubes would not seem to set, and the drinks were not as cold as would have liked, and it was turned up fully..who knows why?
This does not detract from the fact that this is a fab little apartment, and the owner and colleagues are really welcoming and friendly, you could not wish for better hosts.
I would certainly stay here again should we return to Dubrovnik!

We stayed in Villa Mar in Lapad for a week and enjoyed evey minute of it. The Villa Mar is a collection of three apartments for rent in Lapad. The apratments are really well decorated, comfortable and are brand new. All the mod cons were available with air con, internet ready pc, sat tv, dvd, fully stocked kitchen, and microwave. There was also a balcony with a great view over Lapad.

The location is great, only about a minute from the main strip in lapad, and 5 minutes by taxi from the old town. Whilst Lapad isnt the most happening location in the world, its nice and relaxed, and with plenty of cafes/restraunts and the beach nearby.

Finally the owners were great. We had our seven month old daughter with us, and as a result they supplied a high chair, cot and loads of toys. They also collected us from the airport for a very good price of €20.

Only one minor downside: the steps - but a bit of exercise never killed anyone.
