“We had the most wonderful holiday in the most perfect place.”
Reviewed 19 September 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Mali Ston is the most enchanting, ancient, village with a castle and a fortified wall running across the hill to Ston. Villa Katarina is a beautiful old house in the village - just below the castle and at the start of the fortified wall which runs across the hill to Ston. It has been superbly renovated, retaining its character but with all the modern comforts. We had arrived in the dark and opening the shutters in the morning to an amazing view of the sea (even better than in the photograph) is something we'll never forget. We were there with our two adult daughters (who were very comfortable on beds in the sitting room) but it would also be perfect for a romantic getaway. It's a few steps down to the sea for swimming and there are several excellent restaurants in the village. And there's so much to see and do nearby - for all ages. There are sandy beaches, and rocky outcrops for more adventurous swimming, vineyards, wonderful scenery, very pretty villages - and, of course, Dubrovnik. If you go there, be sure to go up in the funicular. We had lunch in the excellent restaurant at the top, gazing down on the historic city. We can't wait to go back to Villa Katarina! We were also lucky enough to visit Villa Mimosa, where our son and his family were staying. That too is beautiful.

“So good we came back 5 times”
Reviewed 1 January 2016 for a stay in June 2015

There is so much to see and discover in the area around Ston and Mali Ston. It has taken us repeated visits to even start to do it justice.

There are islands to see, eating places to try and gorgeous deserted beaches to track down.

Villa Katarina is a gem, set above the small fishing village of Mali Ston. The facilities are superb and the views compliment them. Down at the water's edge are two excellent restaurants. I recommend the Kapetanova Kuca.

Will we be going back? Oh yes!

“Beautiful rustic villa will all modern amenities.”
Reviewed 5 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This is a wonderful rustic villa on three floors. All mod cons including WiFi and Air Con - much appreciated, especially in the bedroom as it was 38C. The furniture is contemporary and comfortable. There is no garden or pool but this isn't a problem as it is 2 minutes from the small local beach.. This is one of the nicest villas in one of the nicest villages on the Dalmatian coast.

“What a lovely place to stay - we would highly recommend Villa Katarina”
Reviewed 12 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This villa was decorated so beautifully, it was a pleasure to stay in. It is detached and self contained on 3 floors, so was really nice and quiet and private. The bedroom especially was lovely, really spacious and comfortable with a very large bathroom attached. The living room was also bright and airy and comfortable. The outlook from the rooms were just lovely. The lady who looks after the villa very thoughtfully came and opened the shutters and windows ahead of our arrival to get the house aired, which was a nice touch and appreciated. The owner had also left a very helpful guide giving some good advice about where to visit. The only thing missing would be a garden or roof top terrace, but outdoor space wasn’t greatly missed as the weather wasn’t great during our stay, as we had quite a lot of rain. My partner also greatly appreciated the Wi-Fi and we both liked the fact that some TV channels were English for a relaxing hour after sightseeing and before heading out for dinner.....

Mali Ston was a very nice quiet small fishing village. Although 2 very expensive restaurants at the front of town seem to have edged out the little pizzerias and café/bars we enjoyed in other towns in Croatia, Ston, which was 10 min drive away, filled in this void as there were plenty of both, we especially liked the pizzeria Stagnum which was recommended by the owner. The restaurant Villa Koruna in Mali Ston was handy and much more reasonably priced than the other two restaurants in Mali Ston. The town does get very busy during the day with bus tours, perhaps due to its close proximity to Dubrovnik, so parking won’t always be guaranteed, but we never encountered problems during the evening when most of the tours had left.
