“A wonderful introduction to Dubrovnik”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

We were two couples traveling through Croatia and Slovenia. We landed at Dubrovnik airport after many hours of travel and Elly was at the airport to greet us and take us to her lovely family villa. Andrija welcomed us with a glass of wine and lots of helpful information about the city and places to eat. Villa Elly is in a lovely neighborhood just a short walk from the Old City. Our apartment was clean, well supplied and comfortably slept the four of us. We appreciated having the kitchen so that we could make ourselves coffee and breakfast in the morning before setting off to explore. We enjoyed having the terrace to sit and relax while planning our day. We felt immediately at home in a new city. Elly suggested a day trip to Lokrum which is well worth the boat ride. The botanical garden, the peacocks (as aggressive as seagulls when food is around) and the stone beaches made for a great day. Our stay in Dubrovnik was brief but made all the more enjoyable by our stay at Villy Elly. Highly recommended as the place to stay!

I have stayed here previously and when opportunity arose again to be in Dubrovnik, I did not look anywhere else. Stayed in 2 bedroom apartment for 3 nights, very comfortable and well fitted out. Andrija and family efficient and friendly, nothing is a problem from first email right through to providing a couple of handmade gifts to my daughter when we left. A lovely thought and much appreciated. Easy access to old city, lovely spot, airconditioned and roomy. Excellent value for money. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Andrija met us at Gruz where the airport bus terminates and drove us to our comfortable apartment. He and his daughter speak superb English and gave us maps and a list of recommended restaurants. Andrija organises all pickups and drop offs and is a fount of information. He is also the nephew of a wonderful Croatian artist and our holiday was much enhanced by seeking out 'Dulcic' paintings and mosaics. The apartments and rooms are very clean and comfortable. Everything has been thought of and there are lots of plug points! We stayed here on two occasions and Andrija picked us up and dropped us to our bus stops on both occasions. It is a ten minute walk into town downhill. We took the bus home in the evenings. The second stop is better as it is an easier walk!

My friend and I stayed at the Villa Elly apartments for one week in August 2013. We stayed in Apartment Andrea. The apartment was lovely. Well equipped kitchen with all the essentials. Comfortable seating area, very spacious with a dining table and a large balcony. The bedroom was also very spacious with a small window and air conditioning. Also air con in the living room. The apartment is located approx a 10 minute walk from the Old Town, all down hill which is great until you have to walk back! But good for some exercise. There is wifi in the apartment and a good selection of English channels on the TV. We arranged out transfers through Andrija which I would highly recommend, Andrija picks you up himself and the price is much better than the local taxi's. He took us to the apartment, helped with our luggage (two women, heavy suitcases never fun!). He then gave us all the details we would need for our holiday, including restaurant guide (with a discount card for some), information on tours and a clear map to help us get around. I found Andrija very helpful and very easy to approach. Our stay was great and we had no issues at all. I would def recommend staying at Villa Elly, the location is great and the owners are perfect. Def made our amazing. Would def go back and stay here.

Just a short review as all the other reviews say it all. The personal service from Andrija and Elly is brilliant . They go out of their way to make you feel welcome and go out of their way to accommodate your needs. More than that , they go out of their way to make your stay a special one. Whilst we were there previous guests had lft multi- trip bus tickets with them as they were unused . Andrija gave them to us and we made full use of them saving nearly £40 in the process! They are just really nice people and we have lots of very pleasant memories of our stay there . Dubrovnik old town by the way is stunning and has so much history.

Room Tip: We were actually in the basic room on the top floor for most of our trip , only because it was the o...

We stayed for a week at Villa Elly earlier this month with our kids and nephew (five young adults) and found it to be perfect. We had two apartments between us, each well-equipped and comfortable; air-conditioning and wi-fi very welcome. The ten minute walk into the old town is lovely and Andrija was so helpful in advising us on trips, bookings and transport. We loved this beautiful city and its friendly people, and we will certainly head back to Villa Elly if we visit again.
