The view from the balcony was awesome and the apartment was lovely. Unfortunately it lacked the basics. The electric kettle had been put on the hotplate by someone and we couldn't get it to work.The plastic on the bottom of the kettle had melted. We contacted Darko, who was lovely, and he got it to work again but really it should have been replaced. It did work for a short while and then we had to go back to boiling water in a pan. There were 4 cups but 3 saucers, no large plates and two mugs, one of which was badly cracked. It was a real shame as the furnishings in the apartment were lovely. Darko picked us up at the airport and couldn't have been more helpful. This was the only criticism we had. A point maybe worth noting that it wouldn't be any good for elderly or infirm because of carrying luggage down all the steps to the apartment and there were even more steps to negotiate to get down onto the main road to walk into Dubrovnik Old Town.

To put it simply, this apartment was everything we hoped it would be and more. Everything about it added to a truly memorable time in a truly beautiful place.
To begin with, it served as the perfect home base for our trip. It was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed to have that ‘home’ feeling while we were there. Best of all was the view from the terrace..Oh my goodness, the view!! It was breath taking (overlooking the sea and Lokrum island) and if we had any regrets from the trip at all is that we didn’t spend more time on the balcony! We did spend one evening there, enjoying the cool breeze of the evening.
The location is ideal, as its only about a 10 minute walk into the old town, and the walk down between the homes overlooking the sea was a beautiful way to start each day.
Honestly, it was perfect. Selfishly I wanted to keep it as “our little secret” but we were so happy with it all that I am quite happy to spread the word!
I don’t think it is too much to say we fell in love with Dubrovnik. The town, the history, the natural beauty, all of it. So, we will definitely be back and I can only hope that this apartment is available for our next trip as that’s exactly where we’d like to stay.
As an aside: before the trip we were contacted by a very pleasant man named Darko, who manages the property for the owners. Darko was excellent in every way. He was the first face we saw as he picked us up from the airport for the short 20 minute journey to Dubrovnik. He also had great insight into local excursions and restaurants which we ended up following much to our delight. Although we only saw him on the transport to and from the hotel, he left his number with us and was happy to help us when we needed help getting an island excursion booked. If you're reading this, thank you Darko!
Anyway, if you're looking for the ideal place to take in this mesmerising city, I cannot imagine that you could find anything much than this apartment. Highly recommended.
