Stayed in apartment 1 for the first three nights of our honeymoon and I couldn't have wished for a better location, facilities or ambience. Just love it! The photos looked great but we were slightly overwhelmed when Vicktor showed us around. He was very friendly, funny and a right treat! Will definitely be returning when we're next in Dubrovnik. It's... More

This quirky,charming apartment is within the old city walls of Dubrovnik, near St Blaise church. There is a fruit and veg market, a supermarket and plenty of restaurants nearby. Having a basic kitchen is useful, as well as a dining and sitting area. The only potential disadvantage is the 55 stairs to apartment 3, and another flight inside. It's fine... More

Secret Apt. #1 is very spacious, has everything you need for your stay; the photos are accurate. Location is excellent, right in the old city. Bonus guitar player sings every evening on the steps of the neighboring church -- quite lovely! You'll want to close your windows to sleep as the cafes on the street go late, but it's not... More

The apartment is fantastic, Viktor and Isabelle from Dubrovnik Chic Apartments - Butterfly Services are extremely kind and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Great at recommending local attractions and eating/drinking venues. My husband and I have traveled all over the world but have never returned to the same place twice. However this was our 6th visit to Dubrovnik... More

We stayed in the Secret Apartment #3 in Old Town Dubrovnik. The #3 is on 2 floors, bedroom and bathroom on the 3rd floor and the kitchen and lounge is another few stairs above that. The apartment to very nice and a nicely stocked kitchen. It is right next to the St. Blaise Church, in fact you might get a... More

The large white room, high ceilings, the curtains fluttering in the breeze, the rose damask covered sofa and chairs, the white table and then into the large bedroom and modern bath. All of this beside St. Blaise Cathedral where every evening a guitarist played the classics and standards for three hours. So good, we bought a CD. An excellent restaurant... More

First time in Dubrovnik and we were very lucky to choose The Secret Apartments. They contacted us by email before we arrived to check arrival time and sent an SMS once we had landed confirming we'd be met by them once we arrived in Dubrovnik. We were met by Viktor who was really helpful and gave us tips and advice... More

We stayed in the 2nd floor apartment pictured, with the floral lounge suite and white furniture. It is an apartment for two, with a comfortable double bed, modern bathroom with bath and shower, a compact but workable kitchen and huge windows that open onto an alley leading to the main plaza at the end of the Placa, opposite the church...

I have used Butterfly Services three times now over the span of a year, and each time I have been absolutely thrilled with them. I have stayed in three of their rental properties (2 inside the walls of the old city in Dubrovnik and 1 just outside) and each property was stunning. Viktor and Isabelle go out of their way... More

Isabelle & Viktor of Butterfly Services did a great job helping us coordinate a group of 11 people with places to stay in Dubrovnik. We ended up at 4 different locations. La Dolce Vita & Secret IV were the best of the 4 locations. Both apartments were clean & very centrally located in the old town. Felt like locals walking... More
