“Cavtat apartment, Bendis, Carol or Zvrko”
Reviewed 15 August 2010

Firstly its a bit confusing on trip advisor when the listiing is Cavtat apartment. There are loads of apartments in Cavtat and this one is found under cavtat-apartment.eu where they give their name as Apartments Carol. Just to make matters slightly more confusing the other half of the building is Zvrko apartments. The one block, two apartment complexes, share a common pool so a lot of the comments about location,pool view etc are common to both. And as Zvrko has a lot more entries you can also read comments there. The apartment was clean, furnished well to be self catering if you wish and great value for money. 250 metres to supermarket so no problem shopping for a few essentials. There is a small restaurant next to the pool where you can have snacks and lunch and even order evening meals if you don't want to go out for the night. Yes the views are stunning, as far as Dubrovnik on the horizon 15km away. The pool was never busy which was relaxing before a start to the day or with a beer at the end of the day. Downhill to Cavtat is 15 mins to the Albatross hotel and beach and another 10 mins to the harbour restaurants. Easy downhill not so much the return. Overall, for a clean comfortable stay with a nice size pool shared between not too many guests it was exactly what was promised.

We have just returned from a two week stay at the Apartments Carol in Cavtat. We had apartment 2 - I won't describe it as there are accurate photos on their website http://www.cavtat-apartment.eu/index_en.html - but we can really recommend it. The apartments are right at the top of the hill above Cavtat and so have amazing views over to Dubrovnik Bay. We watched the sun set in a blaze of red each evening. Kate and Ivana are more than happy to run you down to the promenade and pick you up late in the evening to save a walk back up the hill, which they do for free twice a day, more often for a small charge. The walk into the town centre takes about 20 minutes (all downhill, and is rural and peaceful. There is a bus service which goes back up from the station in Cavtat centre and stops near the apartments, and that only costs 5 Kuhne (about 65p) so you can get about yourself if you'd rather do that than ask the owners for transport. There is a supermarket less than 2 minutes walk away, and a twice hourly bus service into Dubrovnik ( about £1.50). At the apartments there is a lovely clean pool (you can stand up even at the deep end), and a pool bar where you can have a snack or your evening meal (no set menu - just chat to Monique the chef and she'll cook whatever you fancy like steak or fresh fish). All facilities were as promised, and towels were changed every two days. In Cavtat we would recommend the Restaurant Ivan (the best we found), and the trip to Korcula (bookable at the Atlas tour office by the bus station) - trips have a pick up at the Hotel Albatross which is at the bottom of the hill, and dropped us back at Tommy's supermarket on the return. Also don't miss the fabulous yachts berthed on the marina. A further tip - we got a better exchange rate by taking Sterling Travellers cheques and using the Banca Zagreb near the bus station rather than getting the cash here in the UK. Useful to know for these apartments as they ask for cash when you are there rather than payment in advance (very trusting!!). Thoroughly recommend and would love to go back (in fact we will as want to do the Montenegro and Mostar day trips). Thank you Kate for making us so welcome.

I have just returned home after spending 2 weeks in the top flat in the Carol Apts.The apartment was bright ,clean and well appointed-with a tiled ,clean bathroom and good shower.There was a fair sized pool in the grounds with a MAGNIFICENT view over Cavtat and the Dubrovnik bay-a great place to relax and meet the other residents.
Our landlady KATE was welcoming and brought us fruit on a no. of occasions There was great hospitality-Kate took us to and from the airport and ran us to various places of interest round about-she also would collect us in the evening(and other residents) to save us a walk up the steep hill-this was much appreciated
