Stayed here for honeymoon in September 2013. Very neat and well kept apartments. Landlord was very helpful and friendly. Rent a scooter while u are there as the steps down to the beach are 140 strong. Situated right on the bus route. Would definitely go back.

Have stayed here more than once and each time has been a great experience. The apartments are located in Lapad, and it is great to experience both sides of Dubrovnik. From the apartment you can get to the city quite easily by bus and believe me the Old city is wonderful to explore but it is really nice to escape it and enjoy the relaxing views at the apartments away from the hustle and bustle of the Old Town especially in the summer months!
You can swim in Lapad bay directly below the apartments, it is a good walk down and up however you can use the elevator in the Hotel kOMPASS which is nearby.
The apartments are great, clean and well equipped and its great to have a pool on site to cool down in after a hot day.
We have always found the owners ,who live on site to be very helpful and polite and even arrange for us to be collected from the airport.
I would not hesitate in recommending Villa Katarina.

Nicely appointed apartment conveniently located near the water and the local restaurants etc. on the waterfront in Lapad (about 10 minute taxi ride or 30 minute bus ride to old town, Dubrovnik). We were on the second floor so we had a great view from our balcony of the water. The apartment was comfortable, but very stark - all white and black so it didn't look homey, but it was very nice. I would stay here again.

We stayed here for one week and though I couldn't fault the apartment the landlord was very grumpy and rude. We asked for an extra sheet for the fold out bed and needed a blanket later in the week. He got quite angry and told us we were bothering him for something different everyday. We met him on those two occasions with reasonable requests I think. I feel people in this industry should have a better approach with people and based on the manner of the landlord would neither stay here again or recommend to anyone.

We just came home with the family of two (2) teenagers from one (1) week stay in Dudrovnik, Villa Katarina.
We booked our apartment 6,5 months prior to the visit. Unfortunately, the apartment was a TERRIBLE dissapointment compared to the web pages. The ground floor apartment has hardly any view to Lapab bay. The room is directly in front of the small pool. The bedroom has no normal view; you can only see a wall.
The rooms that are upper should have another rating than the ground floor apartments. Unfortunately, A BIG mistake to stay in Villa Katarina.
Positive: rooms are clean and the small pool is well taken care of.

Room Tip: Avoid the two apartments in ground floor.

The apartment I shared with my friends was excellent. It was very clean and had everything we needed. It had AC in both rooms and was right near the pool.
The apartment is on top of a hill and does require a fairly decent walk down stairs to the beach, but it is worth it.
The owners were accommodating to us and while it was a little pricey because of the last minute booking, I would stay there again.

The owners are incredibly helpful and friendly. Views from rooms are breathtaking. Easy access to the beach. And the rooms are clean and comfortable. Very happy family stay. The pool is not large, however.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
An imposing architectural structure shelters within it an oasis of peace and luxury where the style is acutely modern, but classic Dalmatian values are still maintained. Its concept combines a clear design with attention to details that cross the lines between the warmth of a home and the comfort of an elegant accommodation. Several delightful beaches, sea-side promenades, and bustling cafes are within walking distance of Villa Katarina, but its location just on the border of a green zone makes it also a place to capture moments of peace and rediscover the simple pleasures of sea, air, and time in an exclusive atmosphere of beauty. Each of the 7 self-catering apartments has floor-to-ceiling windows which lead to terraces with spectacular Adriatic views. ... more   less
