This place is a real gem. Location wise, there is no better in Dubrovnik. a 5 minute easy stroll from the best end of the old town, close to the old harbour (where excursions to Lokrum, Cavtat depart), close to the beach and also shops, bakery, restarurants etc.
The view from the terrace where you can eat breakfast is incredible and one which would not be available in even the most expensive hotels. Uninteruppted views of the old harbour, town and islands.
The rooms which are set in a beautiful terrace garden full of blossoming trees, are small, but immaculate and the same views can even be seen from the kitchen window.
As others have said however, these apartments are made by Stijepo and his family who completely include guests in their family life whilst you stay. Stijepo offered to wash clothes etc, provided many recommendations etc and is on hand constantly to provide a full travel rep service if needed. What touched us is that Stijepo would come round with plates of food, fruit and drinks from time to time, beyond what you get from any package holiday.
Dubrovnik is a truly enchanting place, a bustly old town with architecture equal to that found in Venice and other european towns. The restaurants are superb and some of the bars are great for people watching. The old harbour is so very pretty and Dubrovnik is kept immaculate and respected by Tourists and the locals alike.
This was our first time in croatia and we were taken aback by the friendliness of the people and the beauty of the Town.
If we had stayed anywhere else (Gruz/Lapad etc) then we may have found it to be too busy with traffic etc. IF you stay here, you only need to see the best parts.
I really cannot recommend Lavanda and Dubrovnik highly enough.
Thanks for a lovely stay.
