Inside it is roomy, comfortable and modern. Two double bedrooms both ensuite. (we were 4 adults staying for a week) It's a short walk though briefly a steep one to the centre of Perast where there are plenty of eaterys and drinkeries, an ATM and a shop (signed market). The house is accessed from the top road bypassing the centre, good parking if you need it but there is a bit of road noise to the rear but you have to listen for it. Ditto dogs barking somewhere on the hill behind. We managed easily without a car, regular buses into Kotor and elsewhere (Tip - check the internet for cruise ship arrivals in Kotor and avoid the days when the truly huge boats are there. They pass Perast but don't stop). The city walls walk in Kotor is steep, sensible shoes needed. House and environs definitely recommended

We had already booked a taxi from the airport (Red Taxi) which took around 15-20 minutes and we were met on arrival by Anka's colleague who showed us around the cottage. The location is perfect, just far enough away from the Old Town in a quiet setting overlooking the bay, as previously stated the view from the kitchen window is amazing. The bedrooms have plenty of room and there is plenty of space in the closets with shelves and hangers. The beds were comfortable and the shower was always hot. The kitchen area has all you need for self catering and the two fridges give you ample room. The is a nice seating area at the back of the cottage to relax in the evening. You will find a small convenient store within 2 minutes walk which we visited most mornings for fresh bread. The Blue Line bus stop is right outside the store and it cost 1 Euro each to take us into the Old Town and just 3 Euro for a visit to Perast. We found both the buses and taxi's a very cheap way to get around. Just past the Marina in Muo is a small restaurant with seating outside overlooking the bay, we had a meal here which was nice. It was sad to leave as we had a really nice time but we are definitely going to return next year. We also had the pleasure of meeting Nigel whilst we were having drinks one night at Ladovina Kitchen & Wine Bar which we can highly recommend.
