Had a 5 day trip in June 2012 and stayed in one of the one bed apts. Its clean, has a nice view from the balcony, the owners were great, let us stay on till 5pm as we had a late flight back. It's ideally situated in a quiet residential part of Lapad - which is about 2 - 3 miles from the historic centre of Dubrovnik. The no 6 bus which is just a minute walk over the roundabout will take you to Dubrovnik for 12 Kuna (buy tickets from the little red kiosks it works out slightly cheaper than paying direct on the bus) They just stamp the tickets and they are valid for an hr. The apt could do with updating especially the bedding - I wouldn't say it was interior design but they bedding was clean at least and the living room was big enough for 2 with a table an chairs and a balcony with a table chairs and a clothes airer. Twin beds though - a lot of 1 bed places here seem to shove them together. The apt has a really good air-con unit an a washing machine, the kitchen had everything you could want but no microwave or oven - just 2 rings and no kettle or toaster....so unless you are inventive with cooking I would advise you eat out - it's reasonable and it's not in Euro's. There is a large supermarket just up past the bus stop - 3 mins walk it's called Tommi I think and it had great fresh fruit/veg/bread/steak etc.....really cheap too. The apt is just a minute away from the long promenade that leads down to Lapad Beach which is really lovely and peaceful......lined with pavement cafe's bars and eateries. It's a really relaxing place to be after a hard days sightseeing - we absolutely loved it - the apt wasn't luxury but it was 3 star basic accom - all you need for a sightseeing trip really if you are on a budget but want lots of scope. We will return and would stay here again - the bakery is right opposite and sell milk, juice, soft drinks water etc bread, cakes and savoury things. Open late too. Taxi rank for the airport is just near the no 6 bus stop too - near the Tommi supermarket. I would stay here again - it's away from the crowds of Dubrovnik, it's fairly quiet so you get a decent night's sleep and it has night life if you want to get back to base and chill out with a cocktail after sightseeing. Dubrovnik by bus is 10 mins and they seem to run every 10 - 15 mins up till late. Check out Buzza Bar on the far right side of the city walls for a stunning sunset overlooking the sea with chilled music and a view to die for. Avoid the fruit and veg market in the centre of Dubrovnik as it's overpriced and the supermarket sells everything there even the walnut, plum and other varieties of croation brandy, honey and nick nacks.....the market is really for the cruise ship visitors who are in and out in a flash. Do walk round the walls - do visit the museum at Rectors Palace it was fabulous. Do the boat trip to Lokrum - beware the nudist beach there unless you want to sunbathe nude that is 8-) Buy your tickets for Lokrum boat trip next to the boat that goes there every hour - it's right towards the end of the harbour.....don't be tempted to book via small booths as you get a tiny boat and if it's slightly choppy you won't actually get there -they turn back....met a few travellers that had their island trips cancelled. Babin Kuk beach is just up the hill from the apt - take a bus there and back if you don't fancy the 15 - 20 min walk. Sunbed and umbrellas are 30 kuna each per day....the same with all the beaches we found... snorkelling was ok - lots of colourful fish. Enjoy !
