Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Dubrovnik - Merbau

Merbau is a stylish apartment, in a newly-built urban villa, located a short walk away from the famous Stari Grad (Old Town), boasting gorgeous views across Dubrovnik and the Adriatic. All the front rooms in the apartment lead to the large balcony which runs the length of the flat giving visitors a panoramic view of the city from the fortress of Lovrjenac to Lapad bay and the islands beyond.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Gordana,

Just wanted to thank you for a great week in your apartment in Dubrovnik.

The flat was lovely and well equipped – we particularly appreciated the air conditioning after a hot walk up from town!

Lots to do and Ivana was very helpful, giving us good recommendations and taxi bookings etc.

Kind regards

Kay and Charlie

Beautiful property and stunning views

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed here in September. We found the apartment to be very spacious and clean. The beds were very comfortable with quality linen. We loved sitting on the balcony taking in the wonderful views, and always took our breakfast in the covered area of the terrace. However, if you want to have a great view, you have to climb up and down almost 400 stairs to the Old Town. There is a bus close by but we chose to keep fit by using the steps, although we always got a taxi back in the evening.

Correspondence with Gordana was always prompt, polite, informative and extremely helpful. Zeljko, who manages the property, lives downstairs and was an absolute delight to deal with!

If returning to Dubrovnik in the near future (which I would love to do) I would definitely stay at this apartment, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to my family and friends.

Beautiful Views, Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

This fantastically appointed apartment is a charming and picturesque 15 minute walk down to the Old City of Dubrovnik. The apartment is exceptionally spacious and wonderfully maintained. It features a large dining room, living area with television, excellent wifi even on the balcony, two large bedrooms, 2 clean and modern bathrooms (one with an excellent shower) a sofa bed and an extra cot. We were only 4 but it could easily have slept 7. There are also all the mod cons of fridge, stove, dishwasher and laundry.

The best part about the apartment is the absolutely HUGE balcony with stunning views of the Adriatic. There is a dining set on the balcony, & we ate all our meals outside, enjoying a beautiful breeze.

I spent hours on the terrace watching ships sail in and out of the harbour, and the sunsets were breathtaking.

The management of the property is fantastic and very quick to respond to emails/calls & thoroughly honest in all their dealings. Zeljko, who manages the property and lives right downstairs, is wonderfully helpful with any tourism/directions/apartment and questions and Gordana and Sean, as the property owners, are delightful.

The walk back up from the Old City requires you to climb a lot of stairs--which was great for us because we needed the exercise and it really allowed us to glimpse the whole city from all these different, truly lovely viewpoints--and we also interacted much more with local residents as we climbed. It may be strenuous for the elderly or disabled, but you can catch a taxi right to the top from just outside Pile Gate for $15-$20. We never took a taxi because we found the climb exhilarating (and this way we could eat a lot more!) Many of the stairs are wide and flat, and there are periodic breaks, so it's easily manageable.

There are 2 markets, a pizza place, a bus stop, car rental and tourism office about 7 minutes down the stairs. The upstairs neighbours have an adorable kitten named Skaretz whom you must meet!

Some have complained about construction noise, but we found it absolutely minimal and never at a time when we wanted to sit outside. All the main construction is done, and it should be noted that all around the city there are small projects, so a little noise is unavoidable no matter where you stay.

I would stay here again in a heartbeat and loved the people, the city and this gorgeous apartment most of all!

Dubrovnik is a beautiful medieval town

  • 2 of 5

Although the view is great, we will not able to enjoy it. Construction started at 7am right out our window, and we had to keep the place closed up because of the constant dust. Wish we had seen previous reviews about this problem before we booked. Ivanna, the property manager, did make arrangements for a taxi for arrival and was very pleasant.

Fabulous apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment with great views. It was clean and and well maintained and perfect for our 3 night stay in Dubrovnik. Ivana was very helpful with maps, and tips of restaurants and places to go. It was a 10 minute walk into the city, but a good 20 minutes back. We managed it 5 times, but taxis were plentiful if needed.

Beautiful, apartment overlooking Dubrovnik

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous views, comfortable, clean and well appointed. Exactly as pictured. We loved sitting on the large balcony and taking in the view! Owner and property manager were so helpful and responsive to requests and questions. 5 minute walk to grocery store. About 15 min to Old Town - easy walk down a lovely path, but a good hike back up. It's easy to grab a taxi though when you don't feel like making the climb. Would definitely stay here again!

Car: not necessary

Merbau is located above the old town (Stari Grad) of Dubrovnik just far away enough from the walled old section to be quiet but still within easy walking distance along some wonderful old stone streets that Dubrovnik is famous for.
