But we owe it to Stjepo who was the most wonderful host. You could not want for any better facilities at the villa, beautiful bathrooms, spacious bedrooms and very effective air conditioning and wifi. The house has a great layout and the garden is lovely yo relax in whilst being completely private. Although the villa is only 1 minutes walk to the sea front (promenade) it is completed secluded. If you prefer a quieter location to Dubrovnik, Cavtat is perfect but still with a great range of good quality eateries and lovely views and walks. It is easy to get a ferry to Dubrovnik (35 - 40 mins) which has to be seen to be believed and we would also recommend a coach tour to Montenegro (Bay of Kotor taking in Kotor and Budva). Finally a special word of thanks to Stjepo and his family who picked us up and dropped us off at the airport, and let us have access to the house on the final day as we had a late flight. We also particularly appreciated an afternoon's guided visit to his brother's vineyard and the hospitality of his family. All in all one of the best holidays we have had. Will definitely return.

The apartment is well equipped with two bedrooms and living room/kitchen and two bathrooms. All the equipment worked well. The best thing is that the views over Cavtat and out to Dubrovnik are amazing - both day and night - and spectacular for the sunsets. The pool was clean and a good size with plenty of loungers and umbrellas for all guests and lovely garden landscaping. Toni was always happy to help with any queries or recommendations both before and during the trip. The apartment is well located for the bus to/from Dubrovnik and it is walking distance from Cavtat town. There are two points to be aware of, however they did not disturb us. It is a 10 minute walk steeply uphill from the town centre. It is very close to the airport and planes do fly overhead, but not at all hours.
