Just spent three nights in Apartment 2 at Orka Apartments outside of Dubrovnik. This is an old family villa/complex - perhaps about 500 years old for the main house - and the top floor is converted to four apartments (one or two are studioes). We are directly on the bay and a short bus ride to Dubrovnik. The two-room apartment was relatively small but just perfect for our family of four (two adults, two small children). I am glad that we did not stay inside Dubrovnik, which we really thought about, and also glad that we did not stay in a hotel (rooms are small and overpriced). The family who owns Orka is absolutely delightful - and the location worked for us, as it allowed us to see Lapad (including a really enjoyable morning at Copacabana beach) as well as Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik, while beautiful, is hard to take in afternoons once the tourists really settle in. I was glad to be away from it, off the beaten path a little. If we did this trip again, I would stay at Orka - I felt that we got a little taste of Croatian life from a really outstanding couple in a clean, well-priced, safe, and very nice apartment in a convenient setting.
