“Fantastic Villa comes with a price, and its not just the steps.”

This villa is fantastic. Great facilities indoor and outdoor. Lovely BBQ area and what a view!! This does come with a price as the villa is at the top of many steps. Also taxi drivers would not accept phone call orders unless we had a Croatian phone no?!?! The last point I will make and I must emphasis it is very important to consider before you book here, especially with children. The villa is surrounded by local people who stay next door on either side. We had a 7 year old who would love to enjoy the pool afterall kids love the opportunity to play in the water. There is in apartment that is occupied by a local taxi driver who works night shift (we were told this by the villa owners and the police) and on several occasions when my nehew was playing in the pool around 1030 am the villa owner would appear on his balcony and aim a volley of abuse at ourselves as he couldnt sleep. The vile language that came from his mouth was shocking. I feel I must give you some examples of what he said, 'do you love your son? I am going to take him away from you' he would also say sick things aimed at my elderly mother and father which are too disgusting to mention. We had to call the police on each occasion but there was nothing they could do as it was our word against his. The villa owner was aware of this neighbour so they have obviously had issues in the past. I would urge you to consider this information before you consider booking here. It is such a shame as everything else about our stay was first class.

“Fabulous Apartment, Stunning Views, lots of steps!!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

After an issue with our original rental property (all of which was resolved to our satisfaction I might add) we were moved to this fabulous apartment with private pool overlooking the Old Port of Dubrovnik.

The main linving space and kitchen was first class as was the huge warp around terance with pool and outdoor seating area, and the views were truly spectacular.

Word of warning. With the spectacular view comes a lot of steps. The walk down to town is just over 10 minutes but there are more than 400 steps down to the Ploce Gate. We took a taxi back as oposed to walking back up, but even then there are just over 100 steps up from the road where the taxi drops you off up to the apartment, so definitely not a place for the infirm or elderly.

If you can cope with the steps, highly recommended! I'd also highly recommend Hedera Estates

Management Response

Hello Simon,

Thank you very much for your nice review on Hedera A8 apartment and our agency. We are really glad that you liked the apartment and your stay with us.
Yes, there are some stairs to get to the apartment, but you have said it well: to get such an amazing view of the Old Town, Lokrum island and open sea, you need to be at the hill. I am sorry if the taxi has left you on the road under the apartment, there is also a private parking for the apartment above it and it probably would have been easier to walk down the stairs to the apartment on your return from the city.

Once again, thank you for your nice comment and we all hope to welcome you again.

Kind Regards,

Hedera Estate
