“Beautiful villa, fantastic views and brilliant owners!”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

We had a fantastic week in Dubrovnik and staying at Villa Klaic just made it better. It is a 10-15min walk from the old town which means it is quiet and relaxing and the view is amazing. If you really do not want to trek up the steps there is a regular bus which is cheap and quick and stops right behind the villa. Milo and his family are very welcoming and friendly and will do anything to make your stay better. The room was spacious and immaculate and the view was absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed relaxing on the terrace or by the pool. This really is a fantastic place to stay and we would recommend it to anyone thinking of coming to Dubrovnik!

It is located a 5-10min walk down to the old town (15min back up) which means that it has wonderful views. On arrival we were treated to a free beer and told we could help ourselves whenever we wanted!
The room was nice and located 2min away from the other rooms and pool. We had booked only 2nights and wanted to extend longer as we loved it so much but unfortunately they were fully booked. They did however phone round all their friends within a 2min walk and got us mates rates for the extra night (we found out later the actual price of the place we stayed was double the mates rates).
On leaving to Hvar they put us in touch with some other friends that owned an apartment that was equally as lovely.
All in all a wonderful place to stay and somewhere I would recommend to everyone I know going to Dubrovnik.

Villa Klaic is located above the old town to the west so be prepared for a 15-20 min trek down and up, but it's so worth it. When you arrive to the guesthouse, the owner Milo will warmly greet you, invite you to sit and offer you a beer on the house. His friends and lovely wife help him operate the guesthouse, pick up guests, prepare breakfast, and of course make sure the beer keg is full. I had made two stays in Villa Klaic - one twin size bed with a private bathroom across the hall and one room with a double bed and bathroom inside. Both were very nice, comfortable and clean. Actually the second room was much too big for myself alone but Milo so kindly had me stay there. The guesthouse itself is beautifully decorated with plants and flowers all over the terrace and pool area. The terrace patio is wonderful area to sit and relax and meet other guests. Also Milo offers airport transfers for a very reasonable price - much more comfortable than a taxi!! He even let me drive his smart car convertible on the way to the airport! Milo seems to know everyone in Dubrovnik and will call in restaurant reservations for you and in some cases you'll get a free apertif. Even when he is fully booked, Milo will do everything in his power to find you a place to stay and in the three nights I was there, he was successful 100% (and there were quite a few situations!). 

Everything about my stay at Villa Klaic was wonderful and relaxing. It's definitely worth short walk to the old town, especially once you come back full of delicious seafood.

What better welcome could 2 tired travellers receive than the warm and wonderful Milo at Villa Klaic... From the moment we arrived to the moment we left this lovely place Milo and his family truly set the bar high for Croatian hospitality. we left feeling that we had made our first friend in this beautiful country.

As far as accommodation is concerned we were very satisfied, our double room was clean and comfortable with a little kitchenette, tv and air con. The setting is gorgeous, high above the old town with lovely gardens and terrace. We felt right at home straight away.

I would recommend Villa Klaic in a heartbeat to any family or friends looking to visit this beautiful city... such a shame we can only give 5 star ratings as this place is off the scale!

What everyone says is correct - the villa is fantastic, Milo, Ivo, and Milo's wife are all truly lovely. But you have to make the effort too!! This is their life, and obviously if you are not making an effort to have a conversation, why would they want to talk to you just to keep you happy? They run this place because it's what they love to do and they are chatty, friendly people.

We were very lucky with our room as there were three of us - me, and a couple. We got a two bedroom apartment with loads of room and a full kitchen. It was far enough from the road and the social area to be very quiet.

The social area - where you can help yourself to beer - is lovely. Nice way to meet people and have a chat with Milo etc. Beautiful decor as well. The pool is also lovely, though doesn't open til 10am.

Breakfast is delicious if you love a proper 'continental'....It's fresh bread and cheese and ham, with yogurts and fruit if you want them. The only issue is that there isn't enough seating for everyone in the villa. Breakfast runs from 7-9am, so at 8.45 it gets very busy. Some mornings we had to wait a good 20 minutes before being able to get into the breakfast room.

The pick up fee from the airport was very reasonable - 21 Euros, or 150Kn. Much cheaper than a taxi, and you get to listen to Ivo's cool music!

There are only two negatives - one is that there is no drinking water available and no shops or restaurants nearby. They could do with having a vending machine for drinks and snacks. You have to carry all your drinking water up from town.

Which is the other negative...It was 434 steps from our apartment to town. Which is fine on the way down, and find on the way back up if you're fit like my friends. But if you're not exactly a gym bunny then it can be a real struggle - especially after a few drinks! After a few days it got a lot easier though, so it's definitely good for getting you fit!

I would definitely stay here again, and would recommend it to anyone staying in Dubrovnik.

Room Tip: There is one room right by the pool which I imagine could get quite noisy. The apartments were all f...

From the moment hotel owner Milo picked us up from the airport, our stay at Villa Klaic was PERFECT. As soon as we got to the hotel Milo unloaded our bags and carried them to our room (quite a feat with all the stairs!). He poured us beers and got us acquainted with the city of Dubrovnik. He and his daughter provided restaurant and bar recommendations.

The room was great - we had a kitchenette, full bathroom (with radio in the shower!), and a private patio. The breakfast was great, in a quaint room where all the guests meet and mingle before starting each day. Milo keeps the place upbeat with music and beers on the patio all afternoon long. It's a great place for guests to meet each other and hang out.

Milo is great, and the perfect host. When our sailing trip got cut short and we didn't have a room, we called Milo and asked if he had a room for us. He was so welcoming and found us a room on his property. When we mentioned to Milo that we were debating renting a car, he called a friend and provided us with a rental for three days! We couldn't have asked for better customer service!

You will make a big mistake if you do not stay at Villa Klaic.

Room Tip: Be sure to request a room with A/C, especially if you are traveling in the middle of summer.

Wow. It's hard to know where to start. Stop looking for hotels and STAY HERE! You could not get anything better. Guaranteed. Milo, the hotel owner and Ivo, his assistant were extremely helpful throughout our stay. Milo picked us up from the airport and took us directly back to hotel (about 20 min). We stayed in a room with a little balcony with an amazing view of the sea and old city. There is a great common area for guests to gather and chat.The pool is small and clean, perfect for a cool down in the summer heat. Milo helped us arrange a rental car for several days and assisted with free parking across the street. This is a great location if you want to rent a car. It would be difficult to find a spot if you were further down the hill or closer to the old city. Overall, the hospitality was exceptional. Having Milo and Ivo around for reference and a good laugh are reason enough to stay here!

Room Tip: Spend the extra money on the room with a balcony and view! Exceptional!
