Apartment in Dobrota, Kotor Bay, Montenegro
What makes this Apartment unique
We really enjoy staying at the apartment. Most of all we enjoy sitting on the balcony in the evening with all the lights of the bay spreading out before us. The yachts and cruise ships coming into Kotor below us is just a beautiful sight to behold. The old town is a firm favorite and the fruit and vegetable market which is held at the outside walls of the town every morning is a great place to buy fresh produce. Local cheeses and delicious fresh fish can be purchased here also along with the best olive oil and seafood. Really great to sit outside at one of the cafe's in the old town and enjoy your morning coffee. We really love to go swimming in the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic a short drive away. It is our favorite to dive off the rocks into the water.

This apartment fine for the 5 nights we stayed.
Plus points - Communication with Lucy the owner was great.
The apartment was as described and well kitted out.
The view was to die for!
Apartment location was great, easy drive from Tivat.
Kotor was walkable - took about an hour along the road along the beautiful bay.
Several good restaurants, a small supermarket and a bakery all within walking distance.
Minus points - very steep hill and lots and lots of steps (see other reviews) We found the hill a big struggle (we are 60+ and fairly fit)
Apartment was not very homely and a tad tired.
Fabulous property with great views!
The whole experience was easy from start to finish and would thoroughly recommend this property.
Yes, it is 135 steps from the carpark to the apt but worth it for the fantastic views over the bay. Sunsets are spectacular. The whole area is made up of steep slopes and numerous steps, so great exercise. The area is beautiful with many restaurants and bars within walking distance. The Old Town of Kotor is nearby and the walk up the fortress walls is really worthwhile, best done early before the day gets too hot. Took a speed boat trip around the bays, brilliant way to see the area. Budva was worth the trip and only about 40mins away. Lots to see and do, great location to explore Montenegro. The border crossing can be time consuming between Montenegro and Croatia so need to leave sufficient time to get to airport. Overall a beautiful holiday location.
A breathtaking view
The photos can’t do the panoramic view from the balcony justice. The views from the pool are spectacular too. This property is a gem.
We enjoyed walking along the water front and stopping for drinks at one of the restaurants. We had a great speedboat ride in the bay and the views above Kotor, either from the city walls or path above, are not to be missed!
The apartment was lovely. Its the highest on the complex and it was really quiet. I'd love to go again in a different season. Sandra was great, I think she's an agent and helped us to get taxis and a new parasol. The only reason i haven't given top marks is because the swimming pool is too small for such a big complex.
Worth the View !
You will not be disappointed with the view ! The photos of the view from the balcony do not do it justice. There is a steep hill / a number of steps to get to the apartment from the road so be aware ! There is a small supermarket around a 5 min walk from the apartment where you can get basic food and drinks for the apartment. There are also some nice restaurants down on the water within an easy walk. The local buses run on the street below the property (virtually every 15 mins except for Sunday's) the nearest stop is just before the supermarket. You can get the bus into Kotor city center, Perast or Budva. We walked into Kotor from the apartment twice during our stay and it is about an hour's walk along the water (so keep in mind when the suns out as it is a bit of a hike). The host was very nice and available to assist if required. We arranged a private transfer to Dubrovnik via the host which was much cheaper then what was being offered in Kotor. All in all would happily stay here again if ever back in Kotor !
