We stayed for three nights in the lovely Lavanda apartment in the Ploce district of Dubrovnik. We were really happy with our decision to stay in this area, only a 10 minute walk to the Ploce gate, all downhill, and an easy walk up a slope on the way back. No stairs!
The apartment has a large terrace overlooking Banje beach, we had some amazing views of the sunset.
Stijepo and his family were so welcoming, a cold drink on arrival was much appreciated, and we loved that he took the time to sit with us and go over the best places to eat, and where to visit. He even let us leave our bags at his house for the day when we were flying out a week later, after not having actually stayed at the apartment for several days in between.
The best time to explore Dubrovnik is early in the morning, or in the evening when the cruise ships leave. We woke up early and were able to walk the city walls before the first boat brought the people in from the ships.
We spent our days either at Lokrum or Mljet. Lokrum is an easy 15 minute boat ride away, but it feels like much further. It's so peaceful and quiet, a nice respite from the crowds in the city. Mljet is also worth a day trip if you have the time.
We loved our stay in Dubrovnik, and can definitely recommend this apartment. We'd love to return.
