Pavo and his family are as stated in all the reviews so far, lovely,as was the apartment.We had the 2 bed top floor, stunning views all round, clean, tidy and extremely spacious. Things that I would have found useful to know: there is a washing machine and dishwasher, take a few washing powder tabs and you'll easily manage with hand luggage. Kitchen equipment is very basic, could do with a few more plates , mugs etc. A welcome pack would be nice or the possibility to order a few basics to be there when you arrive.
It is quite a trek to the supermarket on foot and in the hot weather it's not pleasant but we soon discovered the delights of the Hotel Asterea minibus and went to Dubrovnik; there is a small but good supermarket at the drop off point and the mini bus will drop you at the bus stop just down from the apartments, so not too long a trek to the top There is another small supermarket and a good bakery in Cavtat. Would highly reccomend a trip to Budva and Mostar, we booked through the Asterea and got a good last minute deal with a local guide called Agata. Again most excellent supermarket in Mostar. Everyone seems to know Pavo and his family but you will get a knowing smile when you say you are staying in the apartments, probably something to do with the hill:-) I have asthma and a dodgy hip and in 35 degree heat it was no mean feat but I took a walking pole which proved invaluable.
Mlini is limited shops wise but not too touristy, the beach is small and rocky, you will need beach shoes. The beaches aren't very clean, lots of cigarette butts etc. but this seemed to be the same wherever we went.
Would we go again? put the apartments half way down the hill, most definitely, or go in the coolest months.
