From the free juice on arrival to the freshly picked oranges cake homemade pancakes and the free lift from the bus station . Ivan's knowledge of the place is really... More

Ivan was an excellent host, giving us free lifts when he was heading that direction and plenty of useful advice. The villa is fairly basic, but perfectly comfortable with a shared kitchen if you want to make your own food and drinks. The balcony had fantastic views. It is about 20min walk to Dubrovnik old town, there are some steep... More

Ivan and Kate looked after us throughout our stay at Villa Ivan for the week in mid October. Ivan picked us up after arriving by bus to the main bus station, which is convenient great value (around 70 KN each). The room was clean and we had the view of Dubrovnik harbor, which was brilliant. It meant we could have... More

Villa Ivan is one of the nicest accommodations we have ever been. It’s a lovely place to be thanks to the kindness and hospitality of Ivan and Kate. We had great time there so if you looking for the comfortable, quiet and amazingly great view you should choose that place. It’s very welcome and cosy house. Regards, Sylvia and Martin.

After spending a wonderful week at Villa Ivan I can only say that everything that has been said in other reviews is true. Ivan and Kate made us feel very welcome; the accommodation is clean and well maintained and, yes, the steps up to it are numerous and steep! Our room was small but this was well compensated by the...

This place is a little gem, and a perfect retreat from the busy, beautiful old town of Dubrovnik. Ivan picked us up from the station and took us to our clean room which had a beautiful balcony overlooking the harbour. We also had use of a kitchen which was an added bonus. There is free WIFI and numerous books and... More

This was the perfect place to stay in Dubrovnik. Ivan picked us up from the bus station (without charge) and helped us carry our bags into his place (no easy task considering the steepness of the staircase). We were exhausted from a long day of travel from the USA, so he graciously provided us with lemonade and strawberry ice cream... More

Can't praise Ivan enough. Both he and his wife were hugely helpful and the room was fantastic for the price. Private bathroom & balcony (with a stunning view) meant it was more like a hotel for hostel dorm prices. The only downside was the extremely steep hill you will have to climb to reach the apartment, so if you're not... More

We arrived in Dubrovnik at the crack of dawn and the owner's wife came to pick us up and take us back to the villa. It is really well situated for the bus station and the ferry port, and is a 20 minute walk to the old town. The room was great and clean, with an amazing balcony view. The... More

We wanted to stay here forever and watch the sun go down over the bay from our balcony with a glass of wine for the rest of our lives.. Ivan picked us up at the airport and showed us a bit of Dubrovnik as we drove into the city then welcomed us with some orange lemonade from their own tree.... More
