Lovely property

  • 3 of 5

The property is great and very well equipped. The air con was essential as the weather was fabulous. It is in a lovely spot, up the hill from Herceg-Novi with great views. Ivana, our local contact, was really helpful and arranged for us to hire a boat for half a day for a visit to the blue grotto, Isla Mamula and a private beach, only accessible by boat - would definitely recommend this trip. Any all female parties beware as the chap who looked after the pool got rather too "friendly" which somewhat spoiled things, as all we wanted was some privacy, but otherwise, a good holiday.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your great feedback after your stay. The privacy intrusion is NOT OK, and will be corrected. The daily pool and garden care is to be done as subtle as possible. We are sorry for this inconvenience. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.

Comfortable villa with good sized pool, vine-covered terrace and long views down the hill to the sea

  • 4 of 5

The villa was comfortable, spacious and well appointed. Everything worked and the place was clean and tidy. The pool was a good size and well used by our family. There were plenty of sun loungers and the pool was cleaned daily by the maintenance man, Milutin who was friendly and helpful. The vine covered outside dining area was great for al fresco meals and was well positioned for views down the hill to the sea in the distance. There was an abundance of fresh fruit on trees, bushes and vines around the villa.

A couple of minor issues. Whilst there was a small shop and modest "cafe" within walking distance, generally there was a need to drive to everything else as the villa was further out of the town centre than we had expected. Secondly, the villa is divided into two apartments with three of the bedrooms and a bathroom only accessible via an outdoor staircase with separate lockable front door. Also, the bedrooms in the main house do not have air-conditioning and there was a period when the temperatures were unusually into 40 degrees centigrade.

This was a great introduction to Montenegro which we loved and we will certainly visit again and would certainly consider staying in the same property next time.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. Great to hear that you enjoyed the vacation in our house. A car is absolutely recommended. Even though you can self sustain by doing a proper grocery shopping the first day of your stay, and that you can do smaller shopping in the village, having transportation easily available is recommended. The air-condition for the main floor including the 2 bedrooms, are based on a big AC unit. However, this unit isn't big enough to sustain a cold room temperature unless the doors are closed and the AC started in due time before retiring for the day, especially on these extreme 40+ days. The 2 bedrooms have a roof fan and should provide some relief during the night circulating the colder air from the AC unit.

Nice place

  • 4 of 5

Multi levels worked well for everybody having own space as we were multiple families holidaying together.

Washing machine broke, but neighbours (pool attendant's wife) kindly did washing.

Overall nice and good location for exploring kotor Bay.

Wonderful Stay

  • 4 of 5

This was a super Villa that worked really well for our group of friends. The Villa was very spacious and set over 3 floors so giving everyone space. All the rooms were spacious and very well furnished and beds comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped.

The pool and pool area where fab and we spent many a happy hours in and around it.

There was plenty of outside sitting areas as well as a lovely shady dinning area. A car is needed as the Villa is about 15mins drive to Herceg Novi which you can walk to but takes a good half hour! and the walk back is all up hill!

A must do day trip is to Trebinji in Bosnia which is about 1 hour from villa (don't forget to take your passport) We spent a wonderful day here.

There is a small very well stocked shop in Podi a short walk from the Villa which opens early we got our daily bread from here every morning followed by an excellent coffee in the Caffe bar next to the garage which was staffed by the most friendly girls and also served great ice cream and beer well worth a visit for an early morning coffee afternoon ice cream and early evening beer!!

We explored the surrounding area but need to come back as there was still plenty to see and do in this beautiful country.

Pulita e ben tenuta si trova un una zona poco dopo il confine ma in posizione abbastanza centrale per visitare le bocche di Cattaro, la capitale Podgorica, Budva, il lago di Scutari con distanze non superiori ai 100 km.

Supermercati, bar ed altri servizi sono tutti molto vicini.

La disponibilità di 5 camere su tre piani permette agli ospiti, anche se amici o parenti di godere di una certa privacy.

Abbiamo passato molto tempo in piscina e abbiamo cenato sempre sotto un delizioso pergolato di uva.

Owner's Response: "Excellent Clean and well kept is located a short distance from the border but in a quite central position to visit the mouths of Kotor, Podgorica, Budva, Lake Scutari with distances not exceeding 100 km. Supermarkets, bars and other services are all very close. The availability of 5 rooms on three floors allows guests, albeit friends or relatives to enjoy some privacy. We spent a lot of time in the pool and had always dined under a delicious grape vine." ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Thank you very much for the feedback. Hope to see you back soon.

Car: recommended


Several beaches only 5 minutes drive away.


The airport at Dubrovnik is just 40 minutes drive away from the villa, and the international airport at Tivat in Montenegro which now has direct flights to London, is a 35 minute drive.


House is situated on a hillside above the city of Herceg Novi. Driving distance less than 10 minutes. The Boka Bay has several places of interest. One of the newest James Bond movies was filmed nearby. The ancient cities of Perast and Kotor is worth a visit.

Further Details:

There are a huge selection of restaurants, bars and night clubs in Herceg Novi. The beach promenade is always full of life and is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Montenegro. We recommend the Yacht Club. Several big supermarkets nearby (ca 5 minutes). The village (Podi) has a local pub and a grocery store.
