We want to return to these apartments in Cavtat. They are very clean & well furnished. You can sit & enjoy watching the boats bobbing from the pretty harbour in Cavtat across to Dubrovnik, Mlini & some of the small islands.
Marina was kind enough to supply us with lots of local information. She booked boat tickets for us & messaged bus & boat timetables as well as local events direct to my phone.
We also enjoyed tasting Marina’s homemade cakes.
Thank you also to Ivor for the journeys to & from the airport.
This one bedroom apartment is very comfortable and the views across the bay to Dubrovnik are wonderful. Cavtat is a great location with lots of lovely walks and excellent restaurants. However, the best part of the holiday was the hospitality shown by Marina and Ivo. Our information meeting with Marina included home made strudel, strong coffee and homemade liqueurs from the family vineyard. They gave us free pick up and return to the airport, plus friendly advice and offers of lifts back up the hill. It is a bit of a walk up the hill but it is a safe, well lit road.
Marina was a great host! We spent a really nice time in this beautiful apartment. We were welcomed in a warm and friendly way with a delicious cake and a lovely bottle of wine to enjoy, and everything was explained to us on arrival. The area of Cavtat is gorgeous and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. 8min walk to restaurants and bars and beach perfect spot. There are plenty of boat trips available from Cavtat. The most obvious being a trip to Dubrovnik and you can pick up the boats from the nearby Hotel Albatross (just 10 mins away).
The apartment is clean and airy inside. The bed is very comfortable, that is very important for us. We are already missing the absolutely stunning sea views from the terracce!
Great location, away from the busy streets of Dubrovnik, however, close enough to visit by boat/ bus/ car. Would definitely recommend staying here, suitable for both families and couples.
Marina's husband was so kind to take us to the airport.
However, I could not have asked for a better home, host, or view.
Highly recommend !
The apartment is in a small development on the outskirts of Cavtat. If you are a reasonable walker the beach and numerous restaurants are in easy reach. My partner is disabled so we needed a car which Marina arranged for us. In the evenings when we went for a meal and were likely to be drinking Marina or her partner gave us a lift.
There is a supermarket just up the hill from the apartment but it is steep! The view is worth while from the top.
Cavtat was full of really good restaurants and the people were very friendly and helpful. That seemed to be true of everywhere we went.
Marina had contacts in Dubrovnik so was able to advice us when there were only a few liners in port so the city was not too crowded. She was also able to book us a boat ride and drop us off at the pier.
The apartment was very good for the price and September still had good weather. We would definitely go again to Cavtat and stay with Marina. I needed a holiday and the friendly welcome we had every day was perfect. Watch our for the local honey drink. Catherine named it bee heroin as it was very pleasant to drink but the aftermath was very noticeable. Drink with care!
My thanks to Marina and her family. I hope she was as well treated when she visited London in October.
