My wife and I visited Dubrovnik and the islands of Mljet & Lopud for a 2 week holiday recently. If we were to go back we would seriously consider just going to Lopud for the entire holiday. It's a beautiful and charming island and Villa Franka tops the whole lot off. Franka came to meet us off the boat and invited us up to her terrace for pancakes and a little meet-up with the other guests, a lovely family.
We were really made to feel completely at home. It's true what the other reviewers are saying - visiting Franka is like visiting a friend. Very helpful and perfectly obliging. The apartment we stayed in (ground floor) was nice and cool, and perfectly clean. Only problem was no hot water in the shower but we didn't even point this out because a cold shower was nice at the end of a day on the beach. (It's really hot here in August!)
Lopud has the most charming quay you could ever imagine. It stretches on for the best part of a mile, and life seems so calm here just sitting here in the evening and dangling your feet off the quay-side watching the sunset. It is one of the most special places I've ever been. People on Lopud are exceptionally friendly too. And Franka helped make our stay one of the most memorable of any holiday I've enjoyed in recent years. The only reason I'm dropping a mark for value is because all decent Croatian accomodation is not as cheap as you'd imagine coming from western Europe.
