“Stunning views!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

We stayed in the immaculate modern one bedroomed flat on the top floor. The highlight of our visit to Cavtat was sitting on the balcony and enjoying the unobstructed amazing view. You have to use stairs to get to the flat. It has a well equipped kitchenette, including a coffee perculator. Ane gave us access to a washing machine and tumble dryer. The bedroom is completely dark at night. The apartments are in a quiet area. Public parking is available nearby.

It is a short walk into town, involving stairs.

We have just returned from a week at Villa Marlais. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment on the top floor, with wonderful views over both bays. The apartment is the cleanest we have stayed in , the bins are emptied daily and the towels changed every two days. Unfortunately we only met Ana briefly on our arrival, as she left to visit family shortly after. We hope to return to Villa Marlais.

Room Tip: Apartments on the top floor have the best views.

Came back from Villa Marlais last Thursday after 10 days of amazing time. I would agree with all positive previous reviews. We stayed in 1 bedroom apartment on the top floor with the most amazing view of the bay. The apartment is immaculate, very clean and equipped with everything you might need during your pleasant stay. It has 2 balconies and honestly there is more than enough space for anything you need to do.If you are still a bit picky and demanding I am sure that the landlady Anuska would do anything to help you.
Cavtat is literally 5 minutes walk where you can find plenty of restaurants, bars, 1 supermarket, outdoor vegetable/fruit market, pharmacy and the ice cream parlor with the best ice cream in the world.
Anyway, my husband visited Cavtat for the first time this year and is already planning our next year's holiday. Enjoy your stay in Villa Marlais and I am sure that you will wish to come back again and again

Our seven day holiday would have been nowhere near as good if it weren't for Villa Marlais.

We arrived in the afternoon and received a great welcome from Ana, who was extremely friendly and welcoming.

The apartment was extremely clean, modern and most of all comfortable, making you feel at home. We stayed in apartment 2, where the view from the balcony was to die for. I don't usually appreciate the landscape but here was beautiful, we had an fantastic view of the sunset every evening and the mountains and landscape was breathtaking.

The location is ideal, only a short walk from the centre of Cavtat, a five minutes leisurely walk. At night you can walk back through Cavtat, take a look at the lovely boats in the harbour and then gaze at the stars from the balcony. As well as this, the short walk to the beach and swimming areas meant that the kids were never bored, they always had something to do. At night they could safely walk down into Cavtat on their own to buy an ice-cream or stay at the apartment and take advantage of the wi-fi.

Ana goes out of her way to accomodate you and make you feel welcome - she always had time to stop and talk to you and when we had no taxi to take us to the airport she arranged transport for us and let us use her house to keep our bags in. One thing is for sure, without Ana the holiday would not have been anywhere near as good!

Arguably one of the best holidays we've had, and ultimately without Ana and Villa Marlais we wouldn't be able to say that. We will 100% definitely return next year, I'm already looking forward to it!

Room Tip: All rooms are equally as good as we spoke to the people staying in them, but apartment 2 is the larg...

Our holiday was one of the best we have had. We arrived in Cavtat early in the morning and got a great welcome from Ane. Lived in a 2-3 bedroom apartment on the top of the building. Fantastic views and a short distance - about 5 minutes to the center of Cavtat. Would strongly recommend this place. Our 15 days could have lasted longer - we will definitely return!

Its not often that I don't want to review somewhere because I don't want other people to spoil a hidden gem, however here you go.
Location-brilliant.
Cleanliness-spotless.
Views-brethtaking.
Value for money-stopped me buying my own apartment.
Very comfortable apartments a home from home.
Ana goes out of her way to make you welcome. When there was no taxi to take us back to the airport Ana's daughter took us.
Cant really say much more.
Would I go back again? I am in three weeks and I cant wait!

Villa Marlais is 5 apartments (4 of which are available for rent) the 5th being the family home of owner Anuska Marlais.

We had one of two 1 bedroom top floor apartments, which gave us the most beautiful views across the bay at Cavtat. The apartment was extremely clean, air conditioned, very well equiped with an oven, hob, fridge, toaster, coffee machine, extra lounge chairs and umbrella for the balcony of which there were 2, 1 for sitting out on and 1 for drying clothes. There is a digital TV and DVD player. The finishing in all rooms is very good, the bathroom is modern and has a suberb power shower. The whole apartment is simply furnished, but there was enough space and storage for all our things. Towels are changed every few days and bed linen weekly. (there are also extra blankets in case you get cold!!!) The 2 apartments at lower level are bigger with extra bedrooms and also a washing machine.

Anuska is delightful, and nothing is too much trouble for her. She is welcoming and really makes you feel at home.

The apartments are only a short walk from the town centre, (literally 3 mins or so) where there are a host of bars and restaurants to choose from.

If there was to be anything negative to say, it's the fact that there are 52 steps ro reach the lowest level apartment from the road, which if unfit can be a bit hard work in 30 degree plus temperatures. Despite that, I would not hesitate to stay there again and again. All the steps where like a daily aerobic workout and made me feel less guilty about all the food I ate!!

The 2 things that make Villa Marlais a lovely place to stay are the location and without a doubt and most importantly Anuska.

Room Tip: The top floor apartments give the best views across the bay
