“Fantastic Priceless Views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2008

The apartment itself was very modern and more than 3* rating, more of a 4*.
We stayed at Tonkovic apartments from the 3rd to 10th august and had a fantastic stay.

The owner (Pavo) was very friendly and accommodating as was his parents. The locals and neighbours were very friendly too.
The rooms were cleaned everyday by Pavo's mum.
We had everything we needed including microwave and the bathroom was nice and clean with a good shower.
We had a twin room with a very spacious balcony with priceless views!

Mlini itself was a beautiful little bay with a water polo area which the locals are very into and you can catch a game most nights.
It has a great boat service to and from Dubrovnik and Cavtat which we went on many times, costing around £5 each way.
Also we got the bus which was close to the apartment, only taking 15 minutes to Dubrovnik. Buses run every 10-15 mins.
You can also get to the bus station and take the coach to Montenegro for just £7, however they are not frequent coaches so take the 9.30am or 3.30pm.

One slight disadvantage was the 'hill' it was very steep! I am 20 and physically fit yet struggled, do not attempt this in the middle of the day as i did! My mum found it a task walking up the hill as we did not hire a car. However the view was so worth it! They are priceless views and the sunsets are something else. So do not let its location put you off!

All in all there are no complaints and would advise anyone to stay here at Pavo's 'house'
His parents were very sweet and shared a drink with us on our last day.
The weather was perfect everyday, 35 degrees mostly and very hot so take a hat and water when walking up and down the hill.
Croatia is a beautiful country, it was my 2nd time in the country and i plan to go again but for much longer! ! !

I booked these apartments via lastminute.com. Upon arriving into dubrovnik, we phoned the owner who met us at a nearby hotel and guided us the hillside to the apartment. We stayed in the Bungalow, which is separate from the main house and is excellent. The views are fanstastic and you have your own private Balcony to enjoy the view.

The room was cleaned well daily

The location is however a bit of a disadvantage as there is a steep walk up to the apartments after a night out or day in Mlini. If you have a car it would be easier to drive about. But the views you get from being so high up would not be possible without the hill!

When we left the owner gave us a drink and biscuits which i felt was very nice added a personal touch.

in summary excellent views, clean, comfortable and truly unique.

My wife and I visted these apartments in September 2006 and had what is probably our best holiday ever. The scenery is breathtaking, and the people are very friendly.

The apartments are in Mlini but high on a hill above the centre of town, but when you have a hire car this does not really matter.

The apartments are very clean, and the owner is very helpful, and will give assisatnce with any arrangements you may need.

It is a perfect base for touring the area. The old town of Dubrovnik is about 7km away and Montenegro can be reached in under an hour. There is also a town called Cavtat with plenty of restaurants and market stalls.

Mlini itself is a quiet town with a few restaurants, and a nice little harbour. The occassional game of water polo can be viewed, and small boats can be hired to go round the islands.

We intend to return this year if possible.

  • Liked — The view, cleanliness and staff helpfulness
  • Disliked — It is a long uphill walk from the town, if you don't have a car

This accommodation is located above the small village of Mlini. We stayed at the end of August and the room was very clean and tidy with very helpful owners. The room had Satellite TV, Air Conditioning and a large balcony with views of the sea.

It has an excellent view of the area, but the downside of this is the steep climb from the beach, only walk if your very fit or take the car and part at the Hotel Astarea at the bottom of the hill.

We had difficulty finding the accommodation, but called the owner who met us in a local cafe. You have to take the steep road from the main highway opposite the Hotel Astarea and continue to the top of the hill.
