The apartment is on the first floor and had everything we needed it’s up high overlooking the bay and Cavtat. Overall the apartment was clean/fresh and comfortable and perfect for self-catering. We spent a bit of time on the balcony which is off the main bedroom, it was so nice to wake up in the morning and look out at the bay and Cavtat. The beach is about a 5 min walk from the apartment and we used this a number of times. You'll find a small supermarket nearby that had everything we needed. Again locally in Cavtat you’ll find a wonderful choice of restaurants to suit all prices. It's a short trip into Dubrovnik with its picturesque stone walls and lots of cafes and ice cream of course. We really enjoyed our stay and can’t wait for the next trip I would highly recommend as it was excellent value for money.

The views are absolutely stunning! Stjepo was a fantastic host, providing transfer from and to the airport. I'd definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it!

                                                                                                  5 of 5
                                                                                                  We really shouldn't be telling you this as we don't want more competition for the villa! 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.
