This beautiful five star villa is located in small place Zaton which is only 10 - 15 minutes drive from historical centre of Dubrovnik, but then again far enough from the urban noise.
Zaton is a scenic bay situated north-west of Dubrovnik. Zaton has been a place for vacation since the early times of the Republic of Ragusa in the early 15th century. Almost every noble Dubrovnik family had their summerhouse built in Zaton. Also, in Zaton you can find beautiful beaches, nice trails near the sea and lot of charming restaurants where you can taste delicious local specialities.
This luxury villa has 330 sq meters of modern decorated interior, divided into three floors. Living room, dining room, kitchen and one toilet are on the ground floor. On the same level there is a big terrace with swimming pool, jacuzzi, sun beds and shower. First floor consists of three bedrooms and three bathrooms. On the second floor there are two bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
Amenities include AC (in all rooms), free wireless internet access, SAT TV, DVD, fully equipped kitchen, 6 private parking places.
This villa can accommodate up to 12 persons (10+2).
A lovely villa, the only reason for not giving 5 stars is that the location isn't massively handy for a beach and is a £20 taxi ride from Dubrovnik. But service from Pero was excellent and his offer to cook a meal is well worth accepting.
This was a fantastic house. The highlights were the location and the view.
The photos on the website do not do the view justice. It is really spectacular from pretty much every room in the house, and is different at different times of day. We couldn't get over it.
The location is great. Dubrovnik is beautiful, but it is crowded and touristy. The house is a close 15 minute drive to Dubrovnik, so you can easily visit, but then you can get away from the crowds. The small harbor of Zaton Veliki is quite charming, and has a couple of very good restaurants, with beautiful views across the bay, and of the marina. I think you can arrange boat tours directly from the Zaton harbor, without having to drive to Dubrovnik. We arranged to have a water taxi pick us up at the harbor to have dinner on Kolocep Island at the Villa Ruza one night. I highly recommend that.
There is a small grocery store right down the hill from the house. One day when our car battery died, we walked down to the grocery store. The hill is a bit steep, but we managed okay.
The house itself is spectacular. It is quite new, and everything was immaculate. There are two huge master bedrooms on the third floor, and the other bedrooms are all spacious and quite well appointed. The bathrooms attached to each bedroom are nice, and all pretty much the same. Bathtub/shower combo, hair dryers etc.
Upon arrival, the owner of the house, Pero met us and gave a very warm welcome. There was a large basked of fresh fruit and chips and crackers waiting for us when we arrived. The refrigerator was stocked with still and sparkling water, apple and orange juice, beer and a bottle of Pero's homemade grappa. Pero shared a glass of grappa with us before showing us around the house. We rent a lot of vacation homes, and this was the nicest welcome we have ever had, and we've never had a house so well-stocked. It was especially welcome because we arrived late, and all the stores were already closed. Pero was available for assistance throughout the trip, and could have arranged boat trips and catering.
We were a group of 8. We were able to make up the bed in one room as two separate beds, which is good to know if you have people who do not necessarily want to share a bed.
Stijepo and Homeaway were great for arranging the rental, responsive and helpful. You can't go wrong with this house.
We spent a lovely family reunion where both kids, the parents and the grannies fully enjoyed. We can just recommend this fantastic place with such welcoming atmosphere and super facilities.
