There are dozens of places on the Dalmatian coast with similar names, and even some that claim a water view, but none can boast as breathtaking a vista as Villa Ana in Cavtat (pronounced Tsav-tat, BTW). The Venetian fantasy of Dubrovnik is visible in the distance, and the view of Cavtat's perfect harbor is magnificent and unobstructed.
Many people have noted that the walk to and from the town center involves a steep climb, but you can think of it as earning those wonderful views. The bus can spare you the hike. Or if you have a car, just park in the convenient town lot (a mere 5 Kuna an hour) and save your legs for the harbor stroll.
Our apartment was immaculately clean, nicely laid out and very comfortable. It has a full kitchen, including an oven and good-sized refrigerator, and a comfortable seating area with a desk facing a large mirror, making it a good place to prep for a night on the town. It has a large porch with a table and four chairs, as well as two lounge chairs for private sunning. The bed is king sized and so comfortable you could melt into it at the end of a busy day.
The owners are warm and accommodating people who clearly enjoy having guests. We had initial problems with wifi that ultimately required them to move a router into our apartment. Zelijka spent a significant amount of time patiently troubleshooting. Then she allowed us to add our laundry to one of their loads, hung it to dry and returned it neatly folded. Zelijka was always available to consult with us on restaurants and local sites, and her suggestions proved spot on. If we return to the area, we would not even consider staying anywhere else.
Note that Villa Ana is priced very reasonably for all you get, but is not cheap. That means you may need to visit the local Bancomat more than once, as the hosts (like most in Croatia) only accept cash.
