“Perfect base”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

We have just returned from Villa Radovic having spent 11 nights there. Originally we were going to stay at one of the smart hotels in Cavtat but we're distracted by the rave reviews of Villa Radovic. Yes, the accommodation is basic, but it is exceptionally clean and functional. The shared kitchen area and terrace really are brilliant places to meet an array of interesting international guests - where could you spend an evening with people from Norway, Northern Ireland, Seaham (North East England), Ipswich, Bingley (West Yorkshire) and sing Happy Birthday to a guy from Finland while his wife translates for you! Many people return year after year and it's easy to see why. We will too! There's a steep walk up from the town, but lots of people have the same walk home, and it starts many a conversation. Brilliant interval training! The hosts, Anita and Pero are delightful - on hand to help and very informative. The housekeeper is a gem - I shall know how to tell her that in Croatian when we return.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room - the views are amazing.

We love this place. My husband and I stayed here for 8 nights. A lot of people do it for two or three nights, but it also works great for a longer stay. The ability to have some fridge space and access to a kitchen makes it easy to cut costs on meals out. The rooms are comfortable and Pero and Anita, the couple who run the place, make you feel welcome! We definitely appreciated having someone pick us up and take us to the airport on either end of our stay. The location is great too! All the travel guides talk about Dubrovnik, but my husband and I would have been overwhelmed by the crowds if we had to stay in the city. It was nice to be just a short bus ride or boat ride away and get to relax with smaller beaches, sweet cafes, and without the crowds!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 8, top floor with a little balcony looking out toward the water!

I love this place.
Close to restaurants, beach and shops.
And the service is above everything. The room is always nice and clean. Air condition on the room so you can cool down after a long day at the beach.
The view is stunning.
This was the second time I was staying here and I don't regret it.
I'll be back next year. :)

Cavtat is a wonderful little burg south of Dubrovnik and the Radovic villa is perfectly situated to allow to really enjoy your time there. Clean and functional rooms, mine had a little deck with great view across the water to Dubrovnik in the distance. Very quiet. Full kitchen, very clean, shared by other guests works great - you have your own space for food etc. and it's a great place to meet the other guests. A quick walk down the hill gets you to some great restaurants, shops, market and beaches in Cavtat. A fantastic get-a-way from the crazy crowds of Dubrovnik and very close to the airport if you have an early flight. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Some 2nd floor rooms have a great view.

This review is long over-due. We stayed at Villa Radovic last summer when we first arrived in Croatia. Cavtat is quite close to the airport, and we were grateful and impressed that Pero picked us up--at no additional cost-- from the airport. This made our first few hours in Croatia so much less stressful than on other trips when we are struggling to figure out the public transportation or to play games with cabbies. Our room was perfect--clean and well maintained. We found Villa Radovic to be a perfect base for touring the area. It is a short walk down the hill to the waterfront of Cavtat (although this does require a fairly steep set of stairs back up to the Villa). There are plenty of restaurants and cafes in Cavtat itself. For visiting Dubrovnik, we chose to take the water taxi a few days and the bus on a different day. The bus stop is only a hundred meters or so down the road from the hotel and takes about twenty minutes to get to Dubrovnik. Villa Radovic has a communal kitchen and patio that is frequently used. There is a grocery store at the foot of the hill and a closer, but smaller one a few hundred meters away. We like that we could cut our costs a bit by preparing some meals at the hotel, and it allowed us to interact with the other guests a lot. Most of the other guests we met were people who chose to return to the Villa year after year. The guests are from around Europe and North America, which only adds to appeal of this spot. The hosts were extremely accommodating and helpful. We liked the hotel so much that we added a few days to the end of our trip so that we could stay longer. Should we return to Cavtat, we will definitely stay here.

Room Tip: We had a room with a balcony that had a lovely view of the town. I'd request it!

We rented two rooms for our family as a home base for visiting Dubrovnik and found Villa Radovic to be exceptional and very convenient. It had a wonderful kitchen area to fix meals in and adjacent outdoor dining there. Loved that there was parking for our rented car! The village of Cavtat, just a quick walk down the hill from the villa was really charming too. Great dining options and promenade to watch the sunset. From the waterfront there, it was a simple ferry ride over to Dubrovnik that took away the stress of driving there and figuring a way to park. Anita and her family were gracious hosts. One thing to keep in mind, is the hill walking down from the villa is a little steep, and on the way back up, persons with health problems may be challenged. I would highly recommend this as a place to stay!

Room Tip: all rooms are very nice

Dear Raula B,

Thank you very much for taking a time to share your experiance at Villa Radovic on TripAdvisor!

Many people choose to come to Cavtat because it is very near to Dubrovnik and it's not so crowded. We are very glad that you found Villa Radovic to be exceptional and very convenient home base for visiting Dubrovnik. Cavtat is also a great base for exploring Konavle, the most southern part of Croatia, and we hope that you will get to know it next time you're around.

Best wishes,

On the hill just outside the centre, Villa Radovic is perfect for a less tourist-y visit to Dubrovnik. Directions first class, welcome great. Room clean and comfortable. Good communal kitchen and tables for socialising with other guests. Short walk down the hill to Cavtat town - amazingly its longer coming up. Boat ferries to Dubrovnik or municipal bus from the end of the road. Airport transfers available - why would you stay in Dubrovnik?
