“Beautiful Location, very remote”

Our stay was near perfect, our hosts hospitality and friendliness was well above what we usually encounter and much appreciated. The villa is equipped with everything you need, the outside space is perfect. The pool is slightly daunting for those who are a bit less agile but not unsurmountable. We had a great holiday, saw the wild tortoise in the garden, and almost enjoyed the constant 36 degree heat - not for the faint hearted.

Villa Killara is a tidy, clean villa with a small pool, grounds that surround the house and a nice view over wooded hills. Raiko, a very nice local man met us when we arrived and guided us up the hill. He booked restaurants for us and acted as taxi driver for us one evening. He is a good facilitator. Croatia is very close. It's worth crossing the border to sample the beaches..

“Most beautiful, sunny and fun activity holiday in dream home”

Definitely need a car, a gorgeous 5km drive upwards into the mountains with fruit-stall at bottom of hill where we stocked up on figs, delicious peaches and fountain-watered melons every time we drove by.

The house is reached through a lovely pathway lined with Italian cypresses. The grounds are gorgeous and surrounded by tall mountain peaks, bright blue skies and the oasis of turquoise blue 5m pool is inviting us to cool down every time we arrive from one of our daily journeys. There is a star-gazing rooftop terrace and on the terrace below there is a lovely big dining table where we ate our meals. The house itself if very modernly set up with all comforts thought of, even enough basics to start us off like coffee, condiments etc. All technicalities like Wifi and air-conditioning etc in full working order. Plenty of space and room. Were able to follow some of the Olympics with the telly. Comfortable beds, super clean, I can't think of a single thing to complain about in the house.

The owner as well as the manager provided great customer service and I would definitely recommend this place to family or friends.

I thought I would not like lack of sandy beaches but instead we developed a love of the Montenegro and Croatian coast with its super clean soft stoned beaches. We discovered a magical secret beach near Popovici half an hour drive away worth the search... Pasjacha. For crossing the border we had to queue a bit so we discovered and preferred the border via the smaller road that follows the coastal road from Igalo via Njivice to Popovic. We were also so close to Dubrovnik from our villa. We had lots of choices of beach clubs with all kinds of watersports: waterskiing, jet skis, scuba diving (Adriatic Blue in People's Beach Bar in Herceg Novi - only 15 minutes from the villa), great service, friendly people everywhere etc.

We also did a 3 hour quad bike safari just over the Croatian border, at Kojan Koral (they do horse riding too). And a must in Montenegro, which after all, is a country of mountains, is the rafting excursion down the rapids through the Tara Canyon, second biggest after Colorado! We drove through the amazing nature of lake-filled valleys to the Waterfall Centre and stayed the night in a cabin in the woods with great food prepared around a campfire followed by a day of most magnificent rafting journey including swims in the river and waterfalls etc.

What can I say: one of best holidays ever. Thanks Jan!

Thank you for sharing your fun filled holiday information; I am sure our future guests will appreciate it. Unfortunately, as much as you wanted to, you were unable to extend your stay in Killara due to lack of available airline seats, but perhaps next year?! We have found the book you left behind and will send it to London at the earliest opportunity.

“Beautiful villa but I do not recommend if you have toddlers”

people found this review helpful

The proprietors were very friendly and helpful in the booking process and we received a very warm welcome on arrival. The villa was beautiful and presented to a very high standard with lots of extra luxuries like satellite TV. The setting and facilities were simple beautiful.

However we had some issues:
1. We were told the key to the second half of the villa was missing and couldn’t be replaced, so we only had access to the main part. So we ended up with a one bedroom villa after paying for 2 bedrooms and we were not offered any money back.
2. The house rules were too punitive for us. The rule book set out lots of financial punishments e.g. tripping electricity too much, using air con too much, etc. We were told in strong terms not to wear sun cream in the swimming pool, which meant our two children could not use it and we had to go and buy a separate paddling pool for them. We were even told not to let the kids touch any plants or stones in the garden. The owner visited every 2 days so we constantly felt on edge in case the kids had moved a stone on the lawn.
3. On the third day we received a hostile text from the owners telling us the neighbours had threatened to call the police as our 2 and 3 year old were too loud. The owners insinuated our children were the worst they had ever met. We were really confused why a simple ‘could you keep the noise down’ could not have sufficed. We also noticed a man walking up and down the road starring at us through the fence which was really intimidating. For the rest of the stay we kept our children in-doors as much as possible and tried to spend most of our time away from the villa.

It was a beautiful villa but we were made to feel uncomfortable, unwelcome and anxious staying there. I would only recommend Villa Killara if you don’t have small children.

Thank you for the review. We appreciate that for most people holidays are for "letting your hair down" and for the children to experience some freedom of the rules that may be imposed on them at home by the parents. However, unless the property is completely isolated and in the middle of nowhere, the neighboring houses may have guests that have escaped from the everyday noise of screaming children and have looked forward to some peace and quiet. Our neighbors on 3 sides had guests that complained about the noise. As a goodwill gesture, we sent a bottle of champagne to each family. Anybody who has children or grandchildren will know how noisy 2 and 3 years old can be when they are not supervised and left to their own devices. We have had many small children staying at villa Killara over the years and have never before received a noise complaint.

my partner and i stayed here for a week in early september, it was so beautiful and relaxing spot on the hill overlooking the mountains, perfect for sunsets!

the house and the gardens were amazing, so well kept, and a pool to boot!
there were fruit trees and tomatoes vines, and even a little tiny tortoise shuffling around the garden too.
the house was lovely and fresh, the super king size bed was so comfy, it made me get one for my own bed once i had got home!!
the owners of killara were so nice too! they made our stay really personal and special, and can't wait to go back!!!

“Lovely villa, stunning country”
Reviewed 10 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We had a fantastic holiday on our first visit to Montenegro. As there was just two of us we only used one section of the villa - it was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Although the owners were out of the country when we visited, they ensured that we were well looked after by friends and neighbours and were quick to respond to any enquiry via email.

Visiting out of season worked well for us as it looked as if all of the resorts (especially Kotor and Budva) could become extremely crowded in the summer - however it did mean that a number of restaurants had yet to open (although there were still loads of really good places to eat). It also meant that it was too early for the pool to be put up at the villa - but this didn't worry us.

We had a couple of days in Herceg Novi - enjoyed walking along the promenade, strolling around the old town and had a lovely couple of meals on the terrace of Gradska Kafuna with a beautiful view overlooking the bay. We were fortunate with the weather and managed a few meals out on the terrace of the villa and a bit of star gazing from the upper terrace.

Montenegro is a beautiful country - would recommend a couple of nights in Durmitor National Park - if visiting in March/April you will need to bring snow boots, but it is well worth it! We also had a night in Budva and visited Mount Lovcen, which was the highlight of our trip - the panoramic views from the top are amazing. The owner of the restaurant at the top of the Mount told us we would be able to see '80% of Montenegro' and he wasn't exaggerating!

Thank you for the review. It would appear, your holiday was a great success. Perhaps you will visit Montenegro again?! June and September are ideal if you want to miss the crowds, but still enjoy hot weather and swim in the sea, or a dip in the pool in Villa Killara. Thank you for treating the villa with respect. I heard from the team you were perfect guests.
