Quiet location in Cavtat old town but close enough to all the social life around the harbour.
Marija & Andrea were the perfect hosts offering advice and sorting out our transfers for us.
Would definitely recommend.

Perfect location in the centre of Cavtat. Very clean, well equipped, lovely sun terrace with large parasol and comfy chairs, good shower and air-con.

The owners, Andrea and her mother Marija, are very friendly and kind. They organised our taxi transfers, brought cakes and liqueurs and kept bringing clean towels and sheets - they couldn't have been nicer or done more for us.

There is building work nearby (nothing to do with the owners), but it has been halted for the summer season and caused no problems.

Cavtat is picturesque, has excellent walks, great swimming in super-clear water and a good choice of reasonably priced restaurants serving great food - the grilled sea bass at Café Zino standing out.

“Great little place to stay at an affordable price. Will come back!”
Reviewed June 13, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

A really lovely place to stay: perfect location for restaurants, harbours, shops, etc.
The apartments has a everything you need, somewhere to cook, great wifi, washing machine, lovely family own it and are very helpful. Sofa bed is perfect also for an extra guest.
The terrace is lovely quite large and gets the sun in the morning and afternoons but not in the evenings. The outlook is not perfect but the location makes up for it, I will admit there was building work across from us, which should be completes in the next month or so. But they only work during the day and I'm assuming most people will be out swimming or reading on the rocks. I would love to come back and I'm sure we will next year!

“Fantastic apartment and holiday”
Reviewed August 18, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My wife and I just returned from a wonderful holiday in Cavtat, made perfect by our host Marjia and daughter Andrea. The Little Gem apartment is as the name suggests a little gem. Perfectly located no more than 2-3 minutes from the Riviera, shops and restaurants. Marjia met us at the car park with a beaming smile and a magic pass for the private family car park. The apartment is immaculate, with a very comfortable lounge dinner and kitchen. The bedroom is spacious with lots of storage. The bathroom is well equipped with a great shower making it easy to freshen up after a morning swim or an afternoon in the sun. Marjia made us feel special with gift of cake, fresh figs and some amazing cherry liquor.
We strongly recommend this apartment and we will return one day soon I hope.
Thank you.

“Perfect 'Little Gem'!!!”
Reviewed July 27, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

people found this review helpful

We stayed for 4 nights in this superb apartment! It is situated just behind the Church of St Nicholas, a 2 minute walk away from the harbour but shielded from any noise or disturbances by its excellent location.
We arrived from Dubrovnik by boat and were met at the church by Marija, the owner, who not only took us to the property but welcomed us with a bottle of her home made Croatian liqueur!
Everything about the property was excellent - they thought of everything! It sleeps 3 comfortably with a double bedroom and a double sofa bed in the lounge. The bathroom, like everything else, was immaculately clean and the kitchen/dining area had everything you could wish for. Outside, the roof above Marija's own apartment provided an excellent area to eat/sunbathe etc.
And to cap it all off, a knock on the door during the 2nd day revealed Marija with more liqueur and home-made cake!!! Delicious!
We enquired about a taxi to the airport at end of our stay and, once again, were chaperoned to the vehicle by Matija!
This was really above and beyond in every respect! I hope the owners enjoy much success with their venture- they fully deserve to do so. Highly, highly recommended!!!

“Enjoyed and appreciated the stay.”

This is a small apartment approximately 15 meters form either side of the Cavtat peninsular.

Access is via some steps a path however if you are able to climb the standard staircase - no problem.

The welcome (typically warm and Croatian) and response you will receive from Maria and her daughter is quite faultless. If you decide to arrive by car, arrangements will be made to provide you with a pass allowing access to the near by car park. The apartment is spotless - immaculate. It is fully equipped from cooking utensils through to an iron and wifi facility.

With the range of restaurants in very ease walking distance there is little point in spoiling your visit to Cavtat by cooking. The private balcony allows a restful break if you decide to drive to the huge variety of locations in this location.

Would we visit again? Of course we would without hesitation.
