                                                                                                      We stayed for 9 nights for our wedding party. We booked the whole villa for our family. The villa is lovely, has lovely views but it is up a fairly steep hill which was fine for most of us but if you have small children or mobility problems then you would need to use taxis or rent a car. Bozo the housekeeper is lovely and can't do enough for you, he has lots of local knowledge and is extremely helpful with transport, shopping etc. My only complaint would be that the cleaner comes early around 8am, and only clears the rubbish. There was no changing of bed linen or clean towels given. Floors were not cleaned nor were the bathrooms. If we had access to the cleaning equipment we would have done it ourselves but we had no mop or cleaning products. We washed the towels ourselves and dried them each day and brushed the floors. Overall we had a lovely stay. Cavtat is beautiful and I would definitely stay there again. Very peaceful. So not the place to stay if you want to party. Thank you Bozo for all your help.

                                                                                                      There are cheaper apartments in Dubrovnik and probably larger, for similar money - but I defy you to find one with such a stunning view and in such an excellent location for all the sights. You have to walk up and down a lot of steps every day, but you will come home feeling fitter for it! The apartment is small, but it's very well laid out. Hanging space in the wardrobe is limited, but there's lots of other storage space, especially in the bathroom. The shower is excellent - really easy to use and very powerful. It's also surprisingly spacious, with a handy shelf for your toiletries. A hairdryer is provided - again small but quite adequate - and a pile of fresh white towels, with more offered if needed. A brand new heating/air con unit has just been installed. The kitchen area is well stocked, so that you could prepare a simple meal if you wanted to. The only thing I would recommend you take is a decent corkscrew, to try some lovely Croatian wine! The host, Refika, is a lovely warm person who will chat to you about her childhood memories of Banje beach. She told us to call upstairs or leave a note if there was anything we needed, but we didn't need to, so she left us alone to enjoy ourselves, which was great. The nearest shops, cafe and bakery (also the bus stop for town or to Cavtat etc.) is straight down the hill, in front of the cable car station. But we found an even better bakery, along with two small supermarkets (Konzum and Pemo) just a bit further down, immediately adjacent to the Ploce Gate, which is the Eastern entrance to the Old Town. Highlights for us were:- walking to the top of the hill (Srd) and seeing the Homeland War exhibition in the Napoleonic Fort, then on to the village of Bosanka, which is very peaceful; Sea kayaking around the city walls and Lokrum Island; taking the boat to Lokrum to see peacocks and bunnies roaming free and a great view of Dubrovnik from the fort there; a bus ride to Cavtat and walking around the pine-clad headland; a vertigo-inducing walk around the old city walls - absolutely not to be missed. Also just meandering around the Old Town streets, especially the medieval quarter. Our favourite bar:- D'Vino which became practically a second home! Buza - the one which is through a hole in the city wall with the waves crashing beneath you - lovely for an afternoon tipple. Restaurants:- Taj Mahal; Lady Pi-Pi; Nishta - when you're done with grilled meat, soothing vegetarian dahl etc. served by lovely people.
