“Book early to avoid disappointment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2012

Our long awaited second trip to Villa Ivy was equally as good as the first as every aspect of the holiday matched the extremely high standards set for our first visit. It is obvious that other visitors find the same as there are so many return visitors. In fact, we had to book a year ahead! Geoff and Helen are excellent hosts; they cannot do enough to ensure your stay is the best possible. In particular, this time, they arranged a fantastic private trip to Mostar which will remain in our memories for a long time. It was both enjoyable and informative. We are now juggling future holiday dates so that we can reurn again!

We have been honoured to be able to stay at Villa Ivy, having returned on 7 June.
Geoff and Helen are excellent hosts with a desire to ensure your stay is of the highest quality.
The apartments are superbly furnished for comfort and relaxing. Geoff and Helen also arrange and drive day trips to the mountains and various villages.
The area's around Cavtat and the famous Dubrovnic are stunningly beautiful and immaculately clean. The food in the local restuarants is second to none at similar prices to good eating in the UK. We were also fortunate to taste one of Geoff and Helen's excellent BBQ's.
A holiday to return too, like quick. Book now (if you can) for a perfect holiday. We look forward to our return in the near future.
Thanks to two wonderful friends for a great holiday.

June and Dave, Glossop, Derbyshire.

We came on a recommendation from daughters and their partners to travel to Croatia and visit Villa Ivy for our first trip abroad. Everything about the holiday was fantastic. The villa and the views are amazing and Geoff and Helen are something special. They went above and beyond being just hosts and made our stay an unforgettable experience.
We had the downstairs apartment and it was spotless and well equipped. Everything was at such a high standard, it is something you would expect from a quality hotel.
We had an opportunity to take the trip up the mountain, which allowed us to experience normal Croatian life as well as stunning views and an excellent restaurant. Geoff and Helen's recommendations regarding the restaurants in Cavtat and things to do were second to none and we are already looking to come back next year.
We agree with all the wonderful things people have said about Villa Ivy. You will not be disappointed if you choose to stay here.

We have just got back from a weeks stay at Villa Ivy and if you are reading this and trying to find somewhere to stay in Cavtat then book now as you really won't find anywhere better. It really is the best place we have ever stayed. The location is amazing - we stayed in the mountain apartment and having arrived at night we couldnt believe it when we woke up and saw the amazing views over Cavtat, the mountains and the coast . The apartment was spotless and fitted out to a really high spec. Everything has been thought of - iron, dishwasher, coffee machine, full sky package, toasters but also the smaller things like cling film, tea towels, wine buckets, dressing gowns, slippers, books, DVDs - and the list goes on. Geoff and Helen are lovely people and really care for their visitors. We woke up on the morning of Jons birthday to find a card and bottle of bubbly on the doorstep. Geoff also brought us herbs and freshly baked bread on a night that I was cooking. We couldnt have asked for anymore and for that reason I think they truly deserve to be at the top of trip advisor.

This was my 4th stay in Cavtat having previously stayed in 2 of the top hotels and a Croatian family apartment. Villa Ivy has everything that you will need for a self contained holiday apartment. Comfort is key here, the best of everything is supplied in all areas. M & S towels are in plentiful supply for the bathroom also nice towels for around the pool. The well equipt kitchen will allow you to feel right at home if you wish to cater for yourself. You will want for nothing as everything, and more, has been suppled. Little extra touches like towelling robes and slippers all add to the comfort of your stay.
You will be greated by the warmth and hospitality of Geoff and Helen who will settle you into your apartment as if you were visiting friends. It is obvious that Villa Ivy is a labour of love to them and generously shared with all who stay there.
I will be returning to Cavtat next year as, in my opinion, it is the most picturesque place ever. I will definately been staying at Villa Ivy.
The highlights of my stay were the mountain trip with Geoff, the lovely meal at Dalmacija and, of course, the most fabulous views of sea and mountains from my apartment.

Room Tip: Fabulous views from all apartments.

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.
