We had a fabulous time there in late June early July. We are a middle aged couple from New Zealand (55 and 58) with our daughter and son in law (28 and 30). The view is magnificient. It is an easy walk to the old city and restaurants. It was clean and very well set up for self catering. It had TV, Video, games, high chair etc. Guest book has useful information. The exterior has a rustic charm. We enjoyed the view from balcony, watching the boats and people coming and going. I wouldn't swim near the apartment. It is at the very end of the fjord with cruise ships etc nearby. Great beaches are a 20-30 minute drive away. The garden would be great, but was overgrown and not user friendly. The owner is really friendly and the local manager was too. A car was pretty useful, though driving in Montengro is an experience and a half. Driving round the peninsula was a once only experience. However it is gorgeous. It was the holiday we all needed - a sun, sea, books, relaxing, eating, drinking, laughing. Montenegro has an unspoilt charm. It was a stimulating experience on many levels.

Owner's Response: Again, we are pleased that another group, in this case New Zealanders, thoroughly enjoyed their stay and gaining from their holiday exactly the kind of experience that our apartment and Kotor/Montenegro in general have to offer.
Some praise indeed to have New Zealanders referring to the view as "magnificent".
It was unfortunate that whilst they were there, the garden was undergoing a transitional phase awaiting a good tidy up to make it once more a positive feature of the property.
Swimming in front of the apartment? Some do, but quite honestly it better to use the stunning beaches a short drive away - the fjord in general does not have notable beaches.
The experience of driving around the fjord is an absolute 'must do'. Just take a little extra care and you'll be fine - it's perhaps more removed from the experience of driving in NZ than for most Europeans?
