Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Kotor - The Stone House - 165 Prcanj

Stone built, seafront, 3 bedroom, safe, family apartment, with private terrace.

The Stone House - 165 Prcanj is a private, safe, space of 150 m2 right on the sea with a secure Wi-Fi network. A new, well -appointed kitchen means all types of meals and snacks can be prepared with ease. A washing machine means you are as self-contained as you wish. Located on the top floor of a 2 storey house with 100 square meters of internal space. The apartment has 3 spacious bedrooms with a stunning private terrace. The Terrace and stairs are all fully fenced. The apartment is located only 6 meters from the clean, clear sea. The tidal range is approximately 30 centimetres. Therefore you do not notice the tide coming in or out and there are no strong currents. There are two steps down onto the beach or a jetty (punta) to jump off. The water temperature reaches 24 degrees Celsius in summer which is very warm. On the shore line there are tree shaded areas where you can sit and relax with a drink. 10-15 minutes along the shoreline is the UNESCO world heritage walled city of Kotor (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kotor). Kotor has amazing Venetian architecture with all the restaurants, bars and shops you could ever need. No vehicles are permitted inside the Old Town. 15-20 minutes to the NW at Tivat is the stunning Porto Montenegro (http://www.portomontenegro.com). Porto Montenegro is open to visitors and you should spend at least one day at the Puro Beach Leisure Club (http://www.purobeach.com/en) which is at the marina. The infinity pool is spectacular.

About James Head

We live in Warwickshire, England and were introduced to Montenegro in 2009 by a friend who has a front line property in Stoliv, Montenegro. The picture is of me (James) and my daughter Rose last September when we were searching for a property to buy. Our search for a property in Montenegro was documented by House Hunters International. The show was first shown on HGTV in the US on 4th March 2013. This was the first ever HHI show filmed in Montenegro.

James Head purchased this apartment in 2012

Why James Head chose Kotor

Montenegro uses the Euro (€), but is not in the Euro zone. The cost of food, eating out, alcohol, taxis and transport is very reasonable and is much better value than in the UK or the traditional holiday countries of the Eurozone such as Italy, France & Spain. Montenegrin's are keen to speak English and often learn English from 'Pop songs' and 'TV Shows'.

What makes this apartment unique

Of the 30 properties we saw, The Stone House - 165 Prcanj was unique. The property is of traditional stone construction with high ceilings and front line to the sea. The internal decoration, layout of the rooms and the quality furniture were all part of the deal and enabled us to have a property we could use immediately. To lie in bed and be able to see the sea and the mountains is an experience not to forget. There is also a terrace with amazing views of the sea and the mountains with bespoke couches to laze upon. BBQ 'ing is also a delight on the terrace. The two 'must do' visits are the marina development of Porto Montenegro in Tivat and the UNESCO walled city of Kotor. Both within 15 minutes of your apartment.

Everything we wanted

  • 5 out of 5
We had a fantastic week at the Stone House, our first visit to the area but certainly not our last. The property on the third floor has a lounge that overlooks the marvellous bay of Kotor allowing views across the water towards Perast and the most stunning cruise ships that sail by.
Within easy walking distance are many Konobas shore side restaurants all providing excellent meals and the freshest of fish dishes.
The area is served by a brilliant bus service where for a few euros and less you can explore the area including short trips to Tivat and the very posh Porto Montenegro with the most super of Super Yachts.
The Stone House has great comfort with a private patio and comfy sofas allowing privacy but also views across the bay. wifi and superb internal fittings allow for home comforts and the most marvellous shower room.
The house sits above the most lovely family with such hospitality it made us feel home from home. Fresh Bread home cooked below us and delivered as a gift was both unexpected and typical of how welcome we were made.
The old city of Kotor could be reached by a leisurely walk around the bay but 5 euros gets you there in a taxi or a 1 euro bus trip from right outside.
We loved every moment of our week and will be back to experience this marvel destination.

Highly recommended

Owner's Response: ‘Everything we wanted’ pretty much sums up what we wanted to achieve with the holiday experience in Prcanj. It is great to hear that expression used to describe not just the accommodation, but also the entire area, the local people and our neighbours in particular.

Excellent stay!!

  • 5 out of 5
Had a terrific stay at The Stone House while traveling with my wife and parents. The home was very clean and spacious. It's in a perfect location with beautiful views and we were very sad to leave. The owner, James, was very helpful throughout the renting process as was his property manager. I hope that I'll have an opportunity to return back to this home as well as Montenegro.

Owner's Response: We want to create that 'holiday feeling' the minute a guest makes an enquiry by engaging with them positively as well as making them feel confident about making a booking. We are particularly pleased with the positive feedback about our team on the ground in Montenegro. They play a huge part in making our guests visit successful.

All that we could dream of

  • 5 out of 5
Having dreamt of the beauty of Montenegro for years – we were not disappointed! I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything as beautiful as the bay of Kotor. Mountains and crystal clear water and the most beautiful stone houses along the coastline. We were fortunate to spend three weeks in one of these stone houses – James Head’s stone house, 165 Prcanj.

And what a treat it was to stay in this well-equipped apartment. We travelled with our two little boys, aged 2½ and 4½ and we really enjoyed that this apartment had everything you need in order to make life “easy and comfortable” when travelling with kids. Also, we enjoyed a very thorough house-book, which gave us all the information we could dream of. Practicalities, guides to local groceries, restaurants – what to see when visiting Montenegro and so forth. Very useful.

Another thing I would like to emphasize is just how nice it is, to walk downstairs from the apartment - and vupti – you are right by the water and you can go for a swim in the most wonderful, crystal clear water!!! And it is very child friendly. On average, I think we bathed around four times a day. What a luxury it was.

If we are to recommend anything to improve, we would say an investment in some sunbeds for the jetty would be really nice.

Other than that – it is just a perfect spot and we very much recommend this place!

Owner's Response: We have acted on the advice and now have some Lafuma sun loungers at 165 Prcanj which can be taken out onto the Punta (jetty) by the sea. It is good to know the House Book is so useful and that the apartment had everything you and your young family needed.

Amazing apartment in a stunning location

  • 5 out of 5
The property is beautifully furnished and in a great location just across the road from the bay, which has clear, crisp water. The mountain views from the apartment are amazing, and lounging on the large outside terrace is a treat, both day and in the evening. The jetty in front of the house was great (if a little crowded at times), and there were plenty of nearby restaurants to choose from if you decided not to cook. The bakery was a 10 min walk away and the small well stocked shop about 2 mins. Great wifi strength, so you could even use it on the jetty. Ideal when travelling with teenagers as we were. Quiet and beautiful location, lovely apartment. I would recommend it!

Owner's Response: The wifi is on all year round. We decided not to go with a summer only package as we know how important a strong consistent wifi signal is for the modern traveller.

Very Nice Apt. in Beautiful Location

  • 5 out of 5
The location of this apartment is spectacular. We really enjoyed being able to dip into the Bay of Kotor whenever we wanted. The views are marvelous. It is worth noting that the apartment is not within walking distance of old Kotor, but it is only a 5-minute drive away. The apartment is roomy and newly renovated. I think my main criticism would be that one has to go through the deck of the people living on the second floor to make it to the top floor where the apartment is. The people living on the second floor were perfectly nice, but it is not an ideal arrangement. Other than that, a great place.

Owner's Response: This is some great feedback from Michael which I will add to our House Book for our guests review in advance of their holiday. Jadranka and her family live below and you do need to walk across their patio to get to the stairs to the apartment. Jadranka does all the cleaning for our guests but also makes sure the apartment is secure, not only when guests are there, but also when no one is in residence. Our guests should not feel concerned about crossing their patio. Jadranka has a calendar and knows exactly who our guests are, when they are staying and receives a valuable income from helping us to make sure our guests have the perfect holiday.

Beautiful Montenegro

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and three daughters arrived at the Stone House at 165 Prcanj late at night after a long travel day from the States. What a treat to wake up to the dreamy view of the Bay of Kotor. The location of the house is perfect. Every day we explored a different town nearby especially loving the picture perfect village of Perast.
We also rented a sailboat in the Kotor marina and spent a few hours exploring the Bay. Every view was stunning! What a pleasure it was to return to the Stone house after our days of sightseeing and lounge on the terrace with a glass of wine.
The place is beautiful and the kitchen was fully equipped,perfect for nights when we decided to cook at home. I can't wait to return!

Owner's Response: It is good to know the kitchen has everything you need in it. Whilst eating out is great value, we wanted to be sure the kitchen had all the facilities for them to easily cook their own meals.

Montenegro is a beautiful coastal republic which faces Italy over the Adriatic Sea.

With its stunning scenery, warm Mediterranean climate and hospitable people it’s no wonder that the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) has identified it as the fastest growing holiday destination in the world. Montenegro is doing no more than recapturing the glory of its 1970’s and 80’s heyday when film stars made a beeline for its unspoiled medieval-era coastal towns and inviting beaches and coves.

One of the most attractive locations in Montenegro is the Bay of Kotor (Boka Kotorska). Wooded hills slope down to the sparkling water whilst medieval towns and villages built from local stone nestle at the water’s edge. The area is UNESCO registered, protecting against over-development.

With EU accession likely to be only a few years away and a Government determined to avoid the fate of the overdeveloped Spanish Costa's Montenegro really is a wonderful holiday destination worth exploring. Home of two UNESCO World Heritage Sites – the ancient walled city of Kotor and Durmitor National Park – Montenegro is cherished by lovers of history and nature alike. English is widely spoken. It is now taught in schools and then perfected from 'Pop songs & TV shows’. May to September the average daily temp is 28 degrees Celsius with an average of 9 hrs. of sunshine per day.
