We stayed in the studio apartment at Villa Valjalo. It's simply furnished but perfectly clean, comfortable and well maintained. And the view from our balcony, across the water to the ferry harbour at Gruz, was outstanding.
The accommodation is very well located for exploring the old city of Dubrovnik, the delightful Lapad peninsular and is also close to the ferry terminal at Gruz. Which is great if you're planning to explore some of the islands on your visit. Everything we required (shops, restaurants and public transport) were within an easy walking distance of the apartment. Local bus No.6, stops nearby, and is a short but scenic 5-10 minute ride to the old city of Dubrovnik.
Djuro, our host, was a very friendly man. Extremely helpful and forthcoming with information, tips and advice on how to get the most from Dubrovnik and the local area.
So if you're looking for a simple, value for money base, from which to explore Dubrovnik and the surrounding areas, then Villa Valjalo is a great choice. However, for anyone with mobility problems, take note. The apartment is at the top of a hill. So if you're not good with steps or long slopes, then this place may not be the best choice for you. But for us, it was perfect, and we would gladly return.
