Spectacular Sea and Island Views, Large Terrace; Walk to Old Town.
average rating of 4.866667 based on 15 reviews

Very deserving of its high rating

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 (wife and I, adult son and common law wife, and adult daughter) stayed here for 7 wonderful nights in June 2016. This was the first time I have tried a holiday rental and chose this property based on the VRBO reviews. All our high expectations were met.

Rebecca was very helpful (and patient) in my planning of our trip, as she and Vido were during our stay. The house is spacious and we all felt very comfortable with the sleeping accommodation. The second bathroom was a bonus. The street to the house is narrow and maneuvering into the parking stall can be a challenge depending on how vehicles have parked in the street, but having a place to park is a major plus. Without it, parking would be a problem.

Worthy of special mention is the patio/terrace that many other reviewers have praised. Some reviewers talk about views of the old town but the roof of the neighbour's house mostly blocks that view. Nevertheless, the view of the Adriatic and Lokrum Island is beautiful. We spent most of our time, our sundowner drinks, several meals and every breakfast on the patio. It is indeed a very special place.

Just a comment about GPS directions. After entering the address into our TomTom GPS, the GPS brought us right to the house when coming from the north. However when coming from the south (the airport) the GPS said we had reached our destination so we stopped but quickly realised something was wrong so we continued to drive. After 50 meters or so, the GPS recalculated and brought us around the correct route from the north right to the house.

There are many estimates of the number of stairs to the old town. Four of us counted once and, while we all differed to some degree, the average was about 280. It is a slog after a long day of sightseeing especially in the heat, but it makes a beer at the top all that much more enjoyable. Our ages varied from 26 to 66 and we made the hike without stopping, but I can quite understand less fit/able folks heading to the taxi rank.

We did a day trip to Mostar, Bosnia, and one to Kotor, Montenegro. While both trips were very worthwhile, we found the Kotor day the best. Again, the GPS was perfectly accurate the whole way.

Overall, we could not have had a better week in Dubrovnik and I would highly recommend this accommodation.

Wonderful apartment, gracious & helpful owners...we give it our highest recommendation!

  • 5 of 5

Rebecca and Vido greeting us with a warm welcome to Dubrovnik. The apartment is very well appointed and spacious. The terrace is a private tranquil place to relax and soak in the amazing views of Dubrovnik and the Adriatic Sea. While I was finalizing the booking and some other details of our trip for our family of 4, Rebecca was very helpful, quickly responding to emails and offering valuable tips & suggestions. When our taxi to the airport was late because a rain shower created a traffic jam, Vido dropped everything and drove us to the airport.

We have rented many properties using VRBO, both in the US and abroad. This property and the experience with Rebecca and Vido earns our highest recommendation. If you're going to Dubrovnik, contact them!!!

I couldnt have asked for a better place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 6 nights at the beginning of August. The place is perfectly located. Walk straight down the stairs (218 of them) and you are at the gates to the old town. A very convenient short walk to the grocery store. The patio was my favourite place to hang out and relax. We arrived and parked the car for the week as everything was in walking distance. Rebecca and her husband made it seem like we were staying with family. They were very friendly and were always available to answer questions. We had 6 of us staying in the apartment and had lots of space. I highly recommend the home and wouldnt hesitate staying there again.

Such a great experience

  • 5 of 5

Vido and Rebecca are great and made amazing recommendations of places to go and eat around the city. The location was perfect...just a few (hundred) steps to the beach and to Old Town. The patio was great and Vido helped us with transportation to and from the airport. We couldn't have been more pleased.

Three couples stayed in the apartment and we had plenty of room. It was very clean and Rebecca and Vido were great hosts and very helpful! You get great views of the Adriatic Sea and some of the old walled city below from the bedrooms and the terrace. The little grocery is just a few blocks away and we were able to purchase what we needed for our dinners at home. We ate a big lunch in the old city the days we were down there. It is an uphill climb on 350 steps to the apartment or you can walk up the zig zaggy streets. After a few days we soon got in shape and were glad we were up above and had the great view! One day we drove the narrow road up to where the top of the gondola goes and it was a fabulous view not to be missed! Another day we drove to Kotor, Montenagro. It was a beautiful drive and a nice lunch within the fortress walls. Seeing the walls snake up the high mountain behind was amazing.
