“Just great”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

I was on my fall vacation in Dubrovnik. This apartment was just great, next to harbor, close to the beaches (Lapad, Cobacabana and Cava). Restaurants and shops were very close. Walk to the old town is about 30 minutes, if you don't want to use bus (6) or taxi. Anamarija was just great host. I will highly recommend and looking forward to revisit someday.

My husband and I have just arrived back from a wonderful stay at the Orka apartments. These apartments were perfect for our stay, spotlessly clean and in a perfect location for both the old town and beach. Annemarjie provided transfers to and from the airport and was very helpful in providing local information.

We walked into the old town, which took us about 20-30 minutes and had a lovely view on route. The bus service was regular and also easy to use - overall, a fantastic holiday and we would recommend the Orka apartments.

The location of the Orka Apartments suited us perfectly. My wife and I are traveling with back packs and using buses every where we go. The main bus terminal is at the cruise ship terminal in view of these apartments. However, it is a walk around the bay of around 1.5 kms to get to apartments. Taxis are easy to get if you want one. Download a map of the location before you set out for it. There is a sign outside clearly showing Orka Apartments. The units are clean and comfortable, and really good value for money.
The location on the Lopad Peninsula is excellent, you can walk about 1.5 kms easy walk to the best beach we found and hire deck chairs in the shade of trees and swim and relax all day. At night when it cooled down we caught the bus into the old town, and did all the touristy things, quite a sight/circus at night, carnival atmosphere. We got onto the cable car to the old fort just on night fall to see all the lights. Really special. Also up there, but not well sign posted is a museum to the Homeland War of 1990 to 1994,( about 200 mtrs walk from the cable car )when Dubrovnik was under bombardment from the Serbians. Really worth the visit, (The fort was built by Napoleon),there is a short English language documentary playing which we learned a lot from.
While in Dubrovnik, also do a trip to the islands. We went on a boat called Negret, and felt it good value for money. 220 Kuna each I think. Lunch provided and wine. Plenty of time on the three islands we visited to swim. While waiting to board the boat in the morning, we panicked a bit,at the number of people about to board the boat..DONT panic, they had three boats running, the first filled up, and then another arrived to pick up the extras.
Dubrovnik is beautiful there is no doubt, but do yourselves a favour and go the islands and beaches outside of the old town. You will be away from the busy touristy spots and enjoy what the Croatians do.

The apartment was situated in an ideal situation for both the old town & beaches - our host Annemarjie could not do enough to help us - but in an unintrusive manner - the garden area was very relaxing with views of the harbour & mountains. We would highly recommend & hope to revisit

We stayed here for three nights in April. The owners couldn't have been more helpful or attentive. The apartment itself was spacious and clean. The kitchenette was a little under equipped, but as we ate out every night this wasn't a problem. There is a lovely garden area, as well as a 'floating' bar right outside the house.
There are a couple of decent restaurants within a very short walk, and you can get the bus to Dubrovnik old town in about 10 mins, and they run every 15 mins.
Can't recommend this apartment highly enough. Much, much better than staying in the city.

We stayed here in August 2011. and we really enjoyed.
Apartments are very clean and in nice neighbourhood.
Owners greeted us when we arrived and since then we had
complete independence. Just what we wanted. If you are
looking for place to escape from everyday rush to place
where you feel like home this is place for that. Apartment
has one small kitchenette and living room with flat TV, spacious
bedroom and big bathroom with shower. For parking space
you should call before and secure it since there are just couple
parking places in front of apartments building. Old town is
20 min walking distance but there is local bus that stops just few
meters from apartments and takes you right next to old town.
Trust me in summer time you want to be secluded from jam of
tourists in Dubrovnik so even though this place is little bit out
of the centre it is excellent place for those who want to enjoy
Dubrovnik but also sleep during the night. We thank owners
for pleasant stay.
