It is also the place holidaymakers can find holiday accommodation amid a quiet green environment where they can retreat after a day of fun.

The proximity of these holiday homes to the beach makes them excellent for sun-seeking tourists as well as those keen on water sports.

Things to do

-Beaches: The Lapad Peninsula is known for its amazing promenades and refreshing sea views; just what most holidaymakers dream about when imagining the ultimate getaway. Deck chairs and parasols are available for hire to eager sunbathers as the beach is largely pebbly. The beauty is that from Lapad visitors can easily walk to any joint they want. Visitors staying in Lapad holiday homes can thus walk to restaurants, cafes and pubs as they enjoy the delights of Dubrovnik.

-Water sports: There are a number of exciting water-based activities available to adrenaline junkies at Lapad including sea kayaking and boat trips to neighbouring islands. Pedal boats, which are ideal for romantic couples, can be hired from the vicinity of the beach. Those keen on underwater adventure can enlist themselves in diving schools where they will be taught the diving basics and supplied with appropriate gear. Aqua parks are available to keep kids busy

-Food and drink: There are numerous great eateries in the Dubrovnik area, thanks to its blossoming as a tourist destination. Apart from traditional Dubrovnik dishes, visitors can now have a taste of cuisine from literally anywhere in the world. But whichever restaurant holidaymakers go to, they are guaranteed to find tasty fish-based dishes and some Italian specialities such as pasta and risotto.

-Old town: Like other Istrian medieval towns, Dubrovnik has a section that has narrow streets and walled with ancient walls. Within these walls are ancient monuments such as the Sponza Palace which boasts a mixture of Gothic and Renaissance styles. The Dominican Monastery was constructed around the same time Dubrovnik’s walls were being built and is evinces some Roman styling.

-Nightlife: At joints like Cafe Buza, visitors can enjoy not just a pint of their favourite drink, they can do so while admiring a scintillating sunset. Those who are in love with Irish bars will find at least three such establishment where they can quench their thirst. Dubrovnik also has its share of cocktail bars, one of which is a haunt for the more artsy.

                                      We were met by Matos mum on arrival,she is so friendly and helpful,nothing to much trouble.The house is just what you see in the pics,lots of little homely touches .little things like sewing kits ,first aid bits and bobs,it's all there.The picture of the staircase looks very tight,it's not.We are all 60 plus and it wasn't a problem.The terrace was AMAZING ,we would all sit out for our first coffee of the day and see what ship had docked through the night.We did take binoculars with us and they were well used.Evenings come into there own on this veranda, the views and traffic on the water you never get tired of watching.Mato arranged transport to and from the airport,the company also do trips .Very polite smart drivers .Do visit Cavtat so easy to get to by bus or boat .Also the island of Lopud was great we did a private tour to spend more time there.Montenegro was not to be missed.I could go on and on,we are coming back next year to see you Mato.

                                      Very enjoyable

                                      The Captains Rest was everything we needed. Very clean, spacious and light. Luko picked us up and took us back to the airport which we think is a must as it takes away the stress of finding the accommodation. Just a walk down the hill and you are in the centre of La Pad with all the restaurants and bars and the beach at the end of the Promenade. We ate mostly at the Restaurant Agora which served good food and had very pleasant staff and lovely clean facilities. A short walk up the hill and the bus stop to Dubrovnik is on the left hand side. We used Lea Travel (down the Promenade) for our trips out who we found to be very efficient. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Captains Rest and would recommend it to anyone and will certainly stay there again if we visit La Pad.

                                      Excellent apartment and location

                                      5 of 5
                                      The overall holiday was superb and spot on for a couple like us. The apartment was spotlessly clean and had all the facilities that we needed during our stay. The description on the website precisely described the accomodation. The owner Nika offered to replace bedsheets and towels for us, but as there was a washing machine in the apartment we didn't take up her offer. The location was ideal for us. It is a 20 minute drive from the airport (Cost 280 Kuna - about £33) and in very much a tourist area with plenty of bars, cafe's and restaurants within 5-10 minute walk. The beach is an easy 10 minute stroll away, is pebbly and is great for swimming The old town of Dubrovnik is a 5 minute taxi ride or 40 minute stroll away. The taxi cost was 70 kuna (about £8) with the taxi rank right outside the flat. There is a large supermarket in the shopping centre opposite the apartment and a bakery across the road. We rented a car during our stay from Millenium car rental in Lapad at a pretty good price, and parked at the back of the apartment at no cost. Very minor issues that some people may not like are that the apartment is in a residential block - not a tourist development; the entrance to the block doesn't give the best first impression with graffiti on the walls; and the apartment is on the main road which can be busy at times. The apartment is on the first floor up a flight of stairs so isn't suitable for anyone requiring disabled access. Nika couldn't have been more helpful and was always available if we needed any advice via email and phone. All in all I would have no problems recommending this to anyone. Richard
