Fantastic! Great host, great location, great house

  • 5 of 5

It is hard to know where to start: the town of Mlini is charming, with very nice people and good restaurants. The property is located just across a small beach, walking distance (as most beach front Mlini) to restaurants and other beaches. It has all the comfort and amenities of a modern house, but with character and charm. All four bedrooms have sea view (no fighting among my kids to select the "best bedroom"); the view from the terrace is spectacular (very relaxing when I worked in the early hours of the morning, taking advantage of the time difference with the US); the garden is beautifully well kept; the swimming pool and BBQ grill are strategically located to provide both a nice view of the sea, and safety if you have small kids (you have to get up some stairs, giving you enough time to catch a runaway grandson!). Even though it was in mid-Jul, we didn't run the a/c all the time, as the walls provided isolation from the heat, allowing us to open the doors/windows and enjoy the nice Adriatic breeze.

The property is kept impeccable: they do the swimming pool and the garden twice a week, and is delivered to you with all the essentials (including beach towels) for you to enjoy your stay.

Lastly, but certainly not least, Katarina was a very grateful host: she help us getting the transportation from the airport, had a delicious apple strudel welcoming us, and was always available to assist us when needed (she cam quickly when one of my sons locked his safe box, contacted a catering for a gathering we had for the final of the FIFA World Cup).

I would love to return to this property in the near future!

beautiful property in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we arrived we were absolutely delighted with the villa. Katarina was very welcoming. The villa itself is beautiful, comfortable and there is a view from every room. What we loved the most was the terrace right outside the kitchen. We spent a good deal of time there eating all of our meals there and enjoying the shade in the heat of the day. The gardens are stunning and the pool area is just fabulous too. It was definitely the best holiday accommodation I have experienced for a large family group. I highly recommend it

Perfect Villa, fabulously situated.

  • 5 of 5

We loved Villa Mar so much that we almost don't want to tell you how lovely it was ... and keep it all to ourselves.

Katarina and her Mother did a wonderful job of preparing this beautifully maintained and well-equipped villa for our stay. There were fresh flowers, wine, milk and home-made apple strudel upon our arrival and they ensured that we had everything we needed to make our stay happy and relaxing. The layout of the Villa is great for groups of different couples who may want a little space to themselves and it is great to separate the bedroom space from the downstairs living area with the external stairs so that those who wake early or are late to bed don't disturb others.

We miss the stunning views across the bay from the terrace and the pool area and can't wait to go back again to enjoy them. The tortoises are fun too and you'll quickly fall in love with them.

The situation of the villa itself is just perfect, being a 15 minute car or water taxi ride into Dubrovnik Old City to enjoy sight seeing or nightlife but there are also plenty of great restaurants locally in which to eat and a very welcoming bar for relaxing drinks nearby.

Katarina is a great host and ensured we had everything in place before our arrival, including arranging car transfers from the airport to the villa. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay .... we will be back again and again and again!

Beautiful oasis in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 12 days at this beautiful house with probably the most amazing garden in the greater Dubrovnik area.

We enjoyed every second of our stay and would definetely come back again.

The house was very clean and perfectly equiped (towels, hairdryer, wachingmachine and a perfectly well equiped kitchen).

The whole house and garden is prepared very lovely (fresh flowers, fresh fruit etc.)

On our arrival we have been received extremely well, and felt home quite fast. We were shown around in the whole house and garden.

The view is stunning and we totally fell in love with the 9 turtles who live in one part of the garden.

Thanks for making our vacation so beautiful.

Mona, Jozo and Athos

Charming stay at Residence Mar in April 2018

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Residence Mar for a week in April 2018.

The view from the terrace to the sea was magnificent, and the back yard was nicely secluded behind the stone walls. The children loved the tortoises living in the yard. There were four bedrooms all equipped with a bathroom on the second floor - it was perfect for us since we had several couples with children staying.

The villa is right next to the Mlini harbor, from where you can take a short boat-ride to Dubrovnik, Cavtat, Lokrum, etc.

We received amazing hospitality from Katarina, who took care of everything at the villa.

Lovely property particularly the gardens and outside areas. Great location for getting about by car or ferry to Dubrovnik/ Cavtat and plenty of good restaurants a few minutes walk away. Highly recommended.
