Tucked in next to a five-star hotel, and perched right on the edge of the sea, is Villa Smodlaka, home to Marija and her husband. We stayed for five nights in Oleander, the studio apartment within the villa. From the front door and the bedroom window, you look directly out on to the Adriatic. All you need for an enjoyable...

We stayed in studio Bon Bon for 10 days which is located on the top floor of the villa, the studio itself is very small but clean and well maintained. However the size of the balcony makes up for the small room. The view is magnificent and the sun hits the balcony until late in the evening, it's the perfect... More

We stayed in Studio Smodlaka at Villa Smodlaka while visiting Dubrovnik. I'm really, really glad we did not get anything inside the old city walls or even adjacent to the walls. Dubrovnik is simply over run with tourists all day every day. They come by the busloads from cruise ships and everywhere else and it gets quite crowded and loud.... More

Firstly the location is perfect. Just a 10-15mins walk along a beautiful coastal road to the old town. Easy accessible, whether walking, using public transport or the local taxis The villa is perched on the cliff so as soon as you enter the grounds of the Villa your breath is taken away, the view is stunning, even local hotels haven't...

We stayed at this delightful studio apartment in June 2014, and were overwhelmed by the beauty of the location and the perfect hosts. The apartment is located 10 mins walk from the Old Town, and sits above a gorgeous beach. The hosts made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them. They were attentive without being... More

It is almost certainly one of the nicest places in Dubrovnik. It has some kind of magic to stay there.Immediately you forget all your problems. When you close your eyes, you can move hundred years ago and feel energy of this beautiful place on the hill. Villa Smodlaka is the best choice.It's just 10 minutes walk from old town and... More

5 friends and myself stayed at Villa Smodlaka in the two bedroom apartment plus the studio apartment. The experience we had here was fantastic! We wanted a place where we could relax and cook our own food (after being on a tour with 40 other people for two weeks) and this place was heavenly. We stayed for 5 nights at... More

Went as a group of friends to Villa Smodlaka, staying at the beginning of the season and enjoyed every minute of it. Marija was very welcoming when we arrived and basically offered her home to us for the duration of our stay. Towels provided for, comfy beds, good lounge and kitchen and terraces with views to die for. It's situated... More

If you want to be close to Dubrovnik's hustle and bustle but be able to retreat to the calm of your private oasis, Villa Smodlaka is the prefect place for you. The old town is a quick stroll away along the coastline, a rocky beach right beneath the villa. The owners, Marija and her husband, created a delightful environment. The... More
