The apartment is well appointed and is within walking distance of the beach (about 10-15 mins) and closer still to a popular promenade that boasts many restaurants and a lively night life.
The apartment was very comfortable with separate lounge room and bedroom. Bed was comfortable and we slept well.
Apartment is located in a quiet one way street but it is not located close to the fortified old town of Dubrovnik. However you can catch a bus nearby that takes you there. We enjoy walking and it took us about 45 mins to walk there.
The kitchen in our apartment was on the small side but functional for our 3 nights stay. It had everything you needed. We didn't cook much anyway so it didn't matter as there are many cheap places to eat.
The one way street means you have to go a long way around to get there as it is a fairly long road but its not too much of a bother.
What made our stay all the more enjoyable is that we found the owners fascinating. Their stories about what they endured during the Serbian-Croatian war and the sacrifices they made to help others were inspirational. Their advice on where to eat and what to see was also much appreciated. Try and sneak a few minutes of their busy life and have a chat.
They also went the extra distance to make our stay comfortable by providing tea and coffee for us and also some snacks after a long journey.
Avoid getting the apartment located closest to the road as it is right on the road's edge. The other apartments were very quiet.
Our apartment (second from the road) had its own little courtyard where you could sit and have a coffee or cold drink or a meal. The local cat would come and visit you to say hello.
If you are looking at staying close to the old town then this is not the place for you. However if you want to be reasonably close to a beach (and you dont mind walking that 10-15 mins to get there) and also to a nice restaurant strip that aligns a park then this is a very good value place to stay.
