Villa Anka
Ranked #9 of 80 Specialty Lodging in Cavtat
Reviewed October 10, 2013

After visiting Villa Anka and Cavtat the summer of 2012 and 2013, we would like to thank Anka and family for wonderful vacations! All togetther we have spent four weeks at Villa Anka where the family has done a tremendous job in making us feel welcome! Our apartment on the top floor was perfect for a family of five. We look forward going to Villa Anka the summer of 2014:)

Greeting from a family of five

Very clean apartment. Lovely friendly people who can't do enough for you. Daily room service and plenty of clean linen.
Need a car unless you are very fit as the hill is quite steep. We did miss outside garden and swimming pool but we really enjoyed our stay. The free airport transfers were very much appreciated. Cavtat is a beautiful place and with a car we were able to visit some places off the beaten track.The planes come very close but as they don't fly during the night they did not disturb our sleep. Probably best to visit nearby Dubrovnik by water taxi as parking for the car is quite expensive.

Anka was very welcoming, helpful and accommodating. Apartment was clean and very well appointed. A short steep walk down town which would not suit the incompaciated but no trouble for most. Without a doubt the noise of overhead planes may annoy some, however, for the price and location it is a fantastic bargin. Friendly, attractive, Cavtat runs rings around expensive, busy and over-touristy Dubrovnik. We chose it for its closness to the airport but would definately return for the location itself and wonderful hostess. This is NOT a luxury apartment, but clean, functional, very comfortable, great location and with an outstanding ot hostess.

Room Tip: Higher floors would have views. If staying more than one night this would be advisable.

Just back from a week stay. Rooms were big, clean and well equipped. Balcony was good for evening meals and breakfast in the morning. Kitchen had everything for self catering. Owners are very helpful and friendly. Even arranged transport back to airport cheaper than we paid a taxi from the airport. Will be back. Aircon helped a lot as it was very warm during the day.

Not long back from wonderful 10 day stay at Villa Anka in beautiful Cavtat - suffice it to say we wish we were there still! Anka and her lovely family welcomed us with warm smiles, quince jellies and homemade brandy so we were off to a good start! Our first-floor apartment was perfectly comfortable, adequately equipped and spotlessly clean, with no shortage of hot water for showers and the bonus of a rose-festooned balcony with mountain and sea views.
Coming back to the apartment at the end of an afternoon we sometimes found slices of Anka’s scrumptious cake on the dining room table. When it rained (not often!) we were provided with umbrellas and when we enquired about Sunday morning folk-dancing display in Cilipi, the never intrusive but always helpful Anka organised our transport there and back.
Walking down to the centre of Cavtat from Villa Anka takes about 5 minutes . . . walking back perhaps a few minutes more – the hill, as previous reviewers have mentioned, is short but steep! Good exercise though, especially after a delicious meal in one of Cavtat’s many fine restaurants!
All in all a great holiday and one we’d highly recommend and certainly hope to repeat, not only because of the delights of Cavtat but equally on account of the welcome and hospitality offered to us by Anka, Luka and their two sons.

We stayed there for one night at the end of a one-week stay in Croatia. Croats had been lovely all week long but the family here topped it all, welcoming us with a drink and a lovely long discussion. Highly recommending it.

We stayed here for 3 nights after we stayed at the owners house about 30mins away - this wasn't the original plan, but Stijepo was more than happy for us to swap a few days from one property to another.

The welcome was warm an genuine with home made cake which was delicious and home made juice.

The apartment itself is small and basic but is a great base for the surrounding area. It's a short walk up a very steep hill from Cavtat, but not an issue. Parking is also available if you need it.

The bed was comfy and the shower nice and warm - there is also a nice small balcony to sit out on.

Again the owners did more than enough to accommodate us, they allowed us to stay for most of the day of our departure as we had a late flight - they then gave us home made gifts of Quince and brandy to take away with us.

I would really recommend this place and their house in the mountains.

As another reviewer put so well - Simple But Effective!
