Villa Kipre is in an ideal location in Cavtat, slightly up the hill (2 mins walk) from the centre of Cavtat. The double room we stayed in was a decent size and had a nice balcony overlooking a rocky garden at the back (keep an eye out for the tortoise). There are rooms with sea-views, so I'd recommend asking for this if it's a deal-breaker for you. Our room had a good quality bathroom with a hot, powerful shower, reliable and quiet air-conditioning, and we slept pretty well - I think it's just far enough away from the front to escape the hubbub - not that Cavtat's exactly a 'party town' anyway :)
Ana, the owner, is lovely and couldn't do enough for us, so we felt very well looked after throughout our stay. Breakfast was a typical Balkan feast of cheese, bread, cold meat, bread, coffee, bread, juice, bread, jam, bread, pate.. etc. all very nice and certainly enough to see you through until lunchtime. It was all presented on their attractive rooftop balcony and - while we were there - in the company of the family cats and dog.
Villa Kipre was 'homely' and had the right amount of privacy - in the evenings, coming back and seeing the family and other guests on the patio, we felt welcome to join in, but free to come-and-go and under no pressure. On the day we left, our flight was in the evening; Ana looked after our bags during the day and her husband drove us to the airport for 70 Kuna - cheaper and more convenient than a taxi and Ana's husband was amicable company for the journey.
Villa Kipre offers good-quality, simple, affordable accommodation - I doubt you will be disappointed, and you'll certainly be made to feel very welcome by Ana.
