About the property

Palatial 4 bedroom house

This 18th century fortified house is our holiday home so has been restored to our tastes. The 12 musket ports have been excavated and illuminated and although one of the largest houses on the Bay, we have avoided dividing it up for maximum rental income. There are four generous bedrooms, two sitting rooms, one in the double height loft, and a hand made kitchen with Bosch appliances. There is TV, cable, and wifi in the loft and benath the limestone tiles, underfloor heating. There's also a terraced garden to the rear and steps into the sea at the front.

Muo is an old fishing village with one shop, a quay and a restaurant. Kotor is a walk along the water front. One can swim past sailing ships mored on the quay or walk up the mountain on ancient paths. Our hope is to give guests the best possible holiday at a reasonable price.

About Marina or Nick

I write books, fiction and books on design, and buy and sell furniture.

Marina or Nick purchased this villa in 2005

Why Marina or Nick chose Muo

This is our home. We renovated it with care using traditional materials and resisted dividing it up for maximum rent. Instead, the accommodation is generous, the furniture, kitchen and bathrooms of high quality, the views from all the rooms beautiful.

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

Hi, my family and I have just returned from our second visit to this beautiful house.

It is such a tastefully furnished and comfortable space to spend your holiday. The house is also very well equipped. There is now steps into the sea directly outside the house to allow easy access to the sea to cool off.

It is perfect for us as it is located in the village of Muo which is nice and quiet. The historical town of Kotor is only a 20 minute walk where you will find all the shops and restaurants. There is a small village convenience shop only a stones throw from the house, ideal for your morning bread or cheeky bottle of wine.

I can recommend two local restaurants. The first is Villa Ferri which is only about 200 metres down the road and secondly Ladovina which is approximately 1km in the opposite direction. The shared seafood platter was most enjoyable.

I would also recommend driving up into the mountains on the Kotor to Cetinje serpentine road to experience the amazing panoramic views and really appreciate the stunning beauty of the whole area. Mostar in Bosnia and Dubrovnik in Croatia are within a couple of hours drive and well worth a visit if you haven't already. I could go on and on about things to do and places to see but thats all part of your holiday adventure experience. We will be returning as we feel we have only scratched the surface of exploration and discovery.

Back on track with the purpose of this review, if you are considering booking do it now. I can guarantee that you will be impressed and very comfortable in this house. You get that feeling of luxury.

Enjoy your stay to those of you that book.

Regards, Luke.

Very stylish, spacious house within a few metres of sea.

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at Muo. The huge rooms and stylish furniture made it feel really special. Our favourite activity was sitting outside by the water, watching the world go by.

Marina was really welcoming and helpful. Her advice on beaches and crossing borders was invaluable.

The only thing that would have improved the stay was more equipment in the kitchen such as oven gloves and vegetable knives etc.

A beautifully restored house on the seafront .

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time!!! This is a lovely house, just a little over a mile from Kotor.

It's huge. Two massive living rooms with four double bedrooms, all of which are air conditioned. It is decorated and furnished to a very high standard indeed; this is not your average holiday let, it's the owners pride and joy and it feels like a real privilege to be able to stay there.

You don't need a car, if you don't fancy the walk into town, there's a bus every half hour and the public transport from Kotor to the rest of Montenegro is very good (The walk into Kotor can be a bit of a pain because the road is quite busy and there are no pavements). The local shop in Muo has everything you might need including fresh fruit & veg. The nearest restaurant is a five minute walk away in the opposite direction to Kotor on the seafront with a terrace. Highly recommended

Don't bother with the day trip to Dubrovnik. It took us two hours to get through the border into Croatia in one direction, and four hours coming back. You have been warned!

Just a couple of words of caution . This house is not suitable for a family with small children. Firstly because it is equipped with high quality stuff and breakages could be expensive, secondly because the front door opens straight onto the road with no garden or even a pavement- the cars pass within inches of the front door as you can clearly see on the picture, and the road turned out to be busier then we had expected. Also, bear in mind that there is an en suite in one of the bedrooms but the other three all have to share one bathroom. We didn't find that a problem, but I can imagine that some families might.

Having said all that, I would not hesitate to book this house again. In fact I'd go back to Kotor just for the privilege of staying here.

Owner's Response: Dear Stuart Thanks for a great review. I’m really glad you had such a good time in Montenegro and liked the house. Over winter we will do more work on the outside space, back and front. There is in fact a space in front that belongs to the house but we need to define it with paving, plant pots and perhaps a breakfast table, so keeping traffic at bay. We also intend to add an additional shower and toilet to the utility room. All the very best and thanks you for being lovely and appreciative guests - Nick

Very special.

  • 5 of 5

I'm returning again this year, on looking at availability............. note I hadn't reviewed from last year yet. I absolutely love the house, the area and the country.

I feel the description underplays how stylish & tasteful this place is. Everything is quality (the dining chairs are original Eames - other designers to be identified by people with a better memory / knowledge than me....). Clean, tidy and high standard of finish on the renovation of this place.

The property is in Muo - quiet and unspoiled. Kotor (had just been placed the Lonely Planet no.1 place to visit when I last stayed) is about a 15 / 20 minute walk away. Occasional cruise ships come towering into the bay @ Kotor, otherwise, not overflowing with tourists.

If driving - go over the mountains to Cetinje - and look out for the old French Embassy building. Views on the journey are spectacular.

Highly recommended - please don't book it when I want to go though!!

Owner's Response: Hello Paula. Thank you for you comments and I'm glad you liked the house. I am sorry about the damp. It was caused by flash floooding the week preceding your stay and affected many houses on the Bay. Over winter we are creating a garden at the back. The design will divert future storm water. We have also installed air condtioning as the unseasonal storms were followed by very high temperatures. Thank you again, both for staying in the house, and for your comments. Please do come again. Our aim over winter is to make the house even better, add another bedroom in the loft, and centrally air condition the whole house. All the very best - Nick
