Myself and two friends stayed here in June for 2 nights. Ivan was such a friendly host and picked us up at the bus station free of charge. He gave us a good explanation of transport around Dubrovnik as well as main things to see and do in the city. On arrival he gave us maps of the city and... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Ivan for 3 nights. Ivan was very friendly and helpful in explaining the transportation and shops around the neighbourhood. He even offered to bring our luggage down to meet us at the main bus station which was much appreciated. The room was well furnished and the view from the balcony overlooking the harbour... More

A little late in leaving this review - we actually stayed in June 2011. Ivan and his wife couldn't have been more welcoming and hospitable; whether it was providing us with airport transfers for a very cheap rate, or bringing us ice cream on a particularly hot day! The only reason we haven't given 5 stars is the location -... More

Put simply, we could not have been more pleased with our week long stay at Villa Ivan. Whilst other reviews have rightly complimented the views of the harbour from the balcony, value for money and ease of access to public transport, it is the kindness and helpfulness of Ivan and Kate that we will remember most. There was a genuine... More

Very easy, stay here is almost like be at your own home.First of all is a great deal- bearing in mind the overpriced flats and hostels in Dubrovnik city centre!! Ivan and Kate are delightful down-to earth people helping further than what usually a random host... More

My boyfriend and I just spent 5 amazing days in Dubrovnik and we believe a big part of it was staying at the Villa Ivan! We stayed in the front room and were blown away by our view! Ivan and Kate are both very nice, genuine hardworking people and made us feel at home from the start. They gave us... 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.
