We booked our holiday on the recommendation of my daughter who visited with her family last year.

The reviews confirmed their experience of Villa Ivy. From our pick up at Debrovnik airport we could not fault the holiday. Geoff and Helen's desire to ensure our stay was perfect was apparent in the standard of the apartment and their knowledge of the area.

Another season and Geoff and Helen's enthusiam has not changed.

Croatia is a destination to be explored and no better place than Villa Ivy at Cavtat to stay.

Fantastic time had by all at Villa Ivy, Geoff a wonderful host, with plenty of local knowledge. Apartment was spotless, no hesitation in telling others from down under to stay there.Trip Advisor reviews were spot on, a wonderful place to stay, wish we could have stayed longer.Hope one day to get back there, thanks Geoff for making my birthday, a special one to remember.

What a gem! Self catering accommodation at its very best! Villa Ivy is the most welcoming, homely, spotlessly clean, modern villa with everything you could wish for. The villa is furnished to a very high standard; you need for nothing it is all there. The terrace and the pool area are lovely and the spa jets in the pool are great for relaxing.
We arrived at our destination to be greeted by the lovely Geoff who made us feel very relaxed immediately. He is the most generous person with his time and his local knowledge which is invaluable for shopping, trips and tips and history of the area. He made our week’s holiday very easy, relaxing and memorable. (the mountain trip is not to be missed)
We are looking forward to returning to this beautiful property and spending more time with Geoff and Helen.

Don’t hesitate if your looking, get booking you will not be sorry!

Room Tip: All the rooms are well appointed and have lovely views.

I have just returned from Villa Ivy, Cavtat. I have never been to Croatia before, so went into everything with an open mind, just so I could draw my own conclusions after my one week stay. Let`s just say, at times - time itself stood still. Not only was the villa outstanding in looks from the outside, it was a real haven of warmth and good feeling inside too. A special thank you must go to Geoff, not only for his prompt collection from the airport, but to say thank you for your time is showing us around the stunning surrounding areas!
The weather was amazing, infact, I have no neutral comments about anything - never mind negative!! As I was in Villa Ivy the same time as `Richard C` - who wrote a review about the pool being cold, all I can say is "What pool was he swimming in !?!?" the temprature was more than enough. Each day average temprature was 28 degrees ................ enough said I feel.

The whole experience of Villa Ivy, has left me wanting more !! Go for it - it will be a holiday you will never forget. 10/10, many thanks Geoff and Helen !!

Despite all the good features of Villa Ivy, we experienced one major
shortcoming. The main reason we chose Villa Ivy was that it advertised a solar heated pool.
Unfortunately during our recent stay from 19 September to 7 October, the water temperature in the pool never exceeded 22C and for most of the time was only 18C..This was much too cold for swimming. If you visit Villa Ivy after the middle of September and wish to swim in the pool , you may well be disappointed (fortunately the sea was quite warm).

If you are thinking of booking Villa Ivy and are reading through these reviews to help you make a decision then STOP...............get your email fired up and get it booked!
If you have already booked and are just checking reviews to make sure it's still living up to it's own high standards then RELAX.........it's everything and more than is written on the preceding reviews.
Yes Geoff is a bit rubbish at controlling the weather (he let it rain one morning) and he's hopeless at making time drag so that one week feels like two, but other than that he's pretty much got this hosting game cracked.
I'll not repeat what others have said, I'll just confirm that it's all true. There are certain little extras that are not mentioned and I'll not spoilt the nice surprise when you find them for yourselves.....what do you mean you haven't booked yet? What are you waiting for?!?!
If you want Bingo, Happy Hours and European Disco Pop around a crowded Pool then this is not for you. If you want to chill out, people watch, the odd trip to Dubrovnic/Mountains/Islands and a general de-stress then this is most definitely for you. Enjoy

We have just had the pleasure of a weeks stay at Villa Ivy and it has surpassed all our expectations. The attention to detail has been meticuloous, from the executive welcome by Geoff at the airport, the welcome pack within the apartment and the immaculate and spotlessly clean standard of the accomodation. Geoff and Helen are the perfect hosts ensuring that every need is catered for, being attentive without being intrusive. The local informatin provided by Geoff and Helen regarding transport, sights to visit, places to eat only added to enusre that we had the maximum benefit from our weeks stay. Providing guests with a local mobile phone for use in case of emergencies etc is a subtle and reassuring gesture which shows the level of detail that Geoff and Helen have gone to.

After the hectic, frantic nature of a visit to Dubrovnik, it is such a relief to return to the Villia Ivy, an oasis of peace and tranquility.

Geoff and Helen have made this a very memorable holiday and we cannot thank them enough for making it so successful.

William and Roz
