“Really nice, with a small but....”
Reviewed October 18, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Really lovely apartment with 3 double rooms, the only problem being the room in the basement did smell quite badly of damp, which apparently is an inherent problem and can depend on the time of year and the weather! It was not too bad when you had been in the room for a while but could be quite unpleasant, but other than that the apartment was lovely with everything you needed and the location was excellent, being just outside hte City walls..

A LOT of steps up to the Villa itself but we were aware of that but older people or anyone with mobility issues would have a problem.

I would however recommned it.

The ground floor room is completely refurbished, the air conditioner is added as a new automatic dehumidifier that takes care of the extra moisture. Moisture is the result of hot showers in a ensuite bathroom when the room is not vented. New windows have tilt openings so that air circulation is possible even without window full open.

“Great location”

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Antipodes. It was just my mother and I, so we used the two upstairs bedrooms and didn't make use of the third downstairs bedroom.

We found the host to be very friendly and the seamless airport pickup and drop off to be helpful when landing in an unfamiliar place.

Be prepared for a lot of stairs. We counted about 70+ steps up from the street to the front door of the villa. Each step was a ramp so the climb was about double. My 70+ mother had to stop to catch her breath a couple of times on each journey to the front door. Also, the bottom of the stairs is still a fair climb up from the old town, even though it's really close. So you'll earn your pizza and wine.

We found the villa to be as pictured, clean, well appointed. The bed was really comfortable.

My only complaints were that the dishwasher broke prior to our visit and wasn't fixed while we were there, and nothing was offered to make up for this (slight discount or anything), so that was disappointing. Also, the villa is dark. There isn't a good way to get much natural light into the place and the outdoor space is also dark and doesn't really have a view at all. There is a house across the street which blocks most of the view/light. So we didn't really feel inclined to spend time there, we just slept there and had breakfast.

Dear Guests,
Thank you for your remarks which are highly appreciated.
Thank you for sharing high rating with our future guests. We would like to respond on some objections.
From other reviews you could see that property is situated at top of the steps.
It is Dubrovnik, town with steps, there are no property in old town or in close vicinity without any step. Town is situated as shell.
As you said in first statement, property is as pictured. All rooms are south oriented and to have more light you have to open the windows.
Living room has two double windows. Villa is in sun almost all day. Unfortunately we can not influent on size of windows (listed property)
or houses on the other side of street blocking view as well on weather (clouds and rain). Same as we cant influent on malfunction of electrical devices.
We had malfunction of microwave recently and we brought spare one but built in dishwasher… much depends on service and spare parts.
Therefore we think we do not need to reimburse you in case of something like that happened.
At the end if you just slept there and had only breakfast did you really need dish washer? All together six breakfast for 2 people and at the end sink was left full of cups and plates. We don’t mind on that but is that really for reimburse?
Kind regards
Dube

A truly special villa which is well managed and has everything you need to make your stay amazing. We were well looked after by Cvjetko and Dube and our whole experience at the villa exceeded our expectations.

“What a great place to enjoy Dubrovnik!”

We traveled here with our 3 adult sons, after stops in Munich and Zagreb and Hvar. This villa was the best by far. It is spacious, beautifully furnished and in a great location. The three bedrooms and two and a half baths fit everyone perfectly. We were able to cook dinners and enjoy the meals outdoors on the terrace. We saw fireworks over the water one night from the upstairs balcony off the master bedroom. The internet is quick and reliable, the TV and CD player are first rate. We walked to the old town every day, several times a day, despite the steps. It was worth every step. We all agreed that if we could have place in Dubrovnik, this would be it. It could not have been any nicer! Thank you so much for sharing it with us.

We had a fantastic family break at the villa. It is up a steep pathway, which can be tricky with bags but once you arrive it is worth it. Very convenient for the Old town and for getting the ferry to Lockrum. Would highly recommend.

This is an absolutely beautiful place that allows you to live likes local close to old town. There are many steps in Dubrovnik and there are a good number up to the apartment but it lets you enjoy the wonderful food without guilt. There was absolutely nothing missing in this well appointed apartment and the terrace is a wonderful amenity. The host is very thoughtful and helps with the baggage up the steps. We just wished we had stayed longer as we lived to explore the alleys of old town. I would definitely recommend this place to friends.

With emphasis on the word 'STEP" - there are lots of them in Dubrovnik!
Would recommend this villa.
The property manager organised taxi pick up from airport. We hit a rare rainstorm and had a scary journey through serious floods to the villa. Thanks to our great driver we made it safely to the villa where Dube met us. She was waiting in the rain at the bottom of the steps. She had umbrellas for us and helped us carry bags up the steps to the villa.
It was a lovely welcome.

What a start to your time in Dubrovnik! That was our first experience in Dubrovnik as well - when it rains, it really knows how to do it well.
Yes, steps everywhere in Dubrovnik - a wonderful way to work off the huge and yummy ice creams!
Glad you had a good time.
