LOCATION, LOCATON, LOCATION!

We welcome you to our recently refurbished apartment in the Heart of the City of Dubrovnik. The apartment is situated less than 500 feet from the entrance of the historic Old Town- Stradun. It is a magnificent and enviable location to explore the city and its museums and beaches. There is not any need for a costly and time consuming transportation, as all attractions are accessible by foot.

The property is in the first row to Adriatic Sea. You are one minute from one of Dubrovnik's most popular beaches, Beach Banje: you can go home to take shower after every swim.

Completely renovated, this specious apartment provides the essential mixture of comfort and convenience. There are two rooms with high, fresco, painted ceilings, a living room with a fully equipped kitchen and a comfortable bathroom. The views from the apartment are incredible. In front of you is unobstructed view of the crystal-blue Adriatic Sea and island of Lokrum, the 72-hectare wooded island.

Our apartment will provide you with a wonderful experience in exploring the city and giving you all needed comfort. Please read our guest comments to get a more flavor about the place.

Guestbook comments from the owner

5/5.Absolutely Sublime!



We have been staying in this apartment for 2 weeks and have no regrets that we booked it. Due to our lengthy stay, we were able to explore this beautiful city and concluded, there is no better place to rent in Dubrovnik. (Please do not make a mistake and book in an Old Town or something like ... only 250 steps... from ...) This location is unbeatable – their best hotel Excelsior is one street level down, 5minutes walk to their best public beach, 8-10 minutes walk to the old town. A view from windows or terrace is breath taking- in fact it was the best place in town to watch the firework on the 10th of July, which is an independence day for Croatia. It is funny, but true that adjacent house was selected to host the European presidents for celebration of an Independence Day. Through windows, you will see a beautiful Adriatic Sea, an island of Lokrum, various elegant cruise line ships and privately own yachts. The Royal Clipper mega yacht was there every week. Inside of apartment: lot’s of space, tastefully decorated, all appliances were working, TV with numerous channels, fast speed internet, clean and crisp linens and really comfortable beds. The owners of this place are trustworthy. If we were to rent in Dubrovnik again, we would pick the same place at the heart beat! Due to nature of my work, I travel constantly and have been staying in a numerous upscale and sometimes luxury hotels, worldwide – and this place was BETTER for me as I hope it will be for you and your family!

Great Location and Very Comfortable

  • 5 of 5
As other reviewers mention, this apartment is in a great location. It was nice to be near both the Old Town and beaches. Banje is right outside the apartment, but we preferred a more secluded beach that was an easy 5 minutes walk away from town. The apartment was very comfortable. Not too many stairs (compared to other places) and comfortable furnishings and beds. We had a car with us for one day...would not recommend that as parking was very difficult.

Nice and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5
This was such a wonderful place to stay during our time in Dubrovnik! It was in a fabulous location, just a short walk to the old city and so close to Banje beach! Vera provided wonderful information prior to arriving at the apartment. It was definitely the highlight of our long vacation. Such a relaxed pace compared to France. I would definitely come back!

Great apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5
Just back from a week at Vera's simply delightful apartment. Close to everything - Banje beach is basically out the front door and it's less than a 5 minute walk to the gates of the wonderful Old City. Views are incredible - to truly appreciate I recommend leaving the air conditioning in the living room off and the windows open so you can enjoy the cool breezes off the water. It didn't get too hot inside during the day. Used the air in the bedroom and it was more than adequate.

Kitchen is stocked with all the dishes, glasses and utensils you need, and the dishwasher is a HUGE bonus.

Highly recommend taking the 15 or so minute walk to Sveti Jakov beach. Much quieter and more reasonably priced than Banje. Very scenic.

Excellent Dubrovnik Apartment

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful property!! Stayed 4 nights in early July at beginning of our Croatia trip, the 2 bedroom apartment was very convenient for our family of four (two kids ages 6 and 9). Great, firm beds and best pillows of our entire trip. A/C in each room, which doesn't always happen in Croatia, full kitchen and frig and washing machine. Views of the city and water from the windows were gorgeous each day. Located in incredible location on the "quiet" side of Dubrovnik, just a short 5 minute walk into the city walls, just above Banje Beach and Hotel Excelsior (treated myself to a spa day and my kids got to use their amazing pool). WiFi not the strongest but enough for emails and surfing, as stated in prior review. Owner is great to work with. Overall, could not pick a better place, great value.

Perfect location, incredible views, great apartment!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a week at Vera's apartment in Dubrovnik, and had a wonderful time. The description and photos here are very accurate -- the apartment is just outside the old city walls (Ploce Gate) and across the street from the pretty public beach. (This is a very desirable part of the city to stay in -- much quieter than the Pile Gate side -- as evidenced by two of the city's top hotels, the Excelsior and Argentina, both just a few steps up the road from the apartment.)

The views of the Adriatic from the apartment are incomparable! So beautiful to wake up to each morning! The rooms are spacious and well-equipped, each with air conditioning and huge windows. One room has a king bed and the other has 2 twins. There is a clothes washer and dishwasher -- both very helpful when traveling with children! The apartment was very clean and well-maintained and Vera is helpful with info / advice / help as needed. I appreciated that the apartment had things like salt, olive oil and coffee filters, which made it feel more welcoming than other places we've rented. Not to mention cleaning supplies, ample bath towels and loads of guide books!

We spent a day exploring Dubrovnik and walking the city walls (very beautiful) and a day sea-kayaking around Lokrum Island, which was SO fun. Don't bother with the sea kayaking tours, which are expensive and you'll be with 12 other boats on busy days. Instead, just walk down to Banje Beach and rent your own kayak (75 kuna / hour, I believe). We did the same route as the tours, but took our time and had the caves all to ourselves. Our 6 year old son just loved it!

We took the local city bus to Lapad Beach one day, which is a beautiful bay for swimming, but the beach is no nicer than Banje (all the beaches seem to be pebbly vs. sandy) and the area is very built-up with huge resorts. Instead, I wished we'd taken a day trip to Korcula, which is the one place nearby that many people recommended and we didn't get to see.

We also rented a car for 2 days from one of the local car rental shops (a few doors down from the apartment, just across the street from the grocery store -- again, all super convenient) and went to Mostar (in Bosnia Herzegovina) and the Bay of Kotor (in Montenegro), which were both fantastic! Fortunately, Vera's apartment was full of guidebooks (thank you!), so we could plan our stay real-time and take advantage of all the nearby sites.

Dubrovnik Old Town apartment

  • 5 of 5
This was the highlight of our 10 day trip around Croatia, we stayed 4 nights. Beautiful views. Almost inside the city walls, so all the advantages but with more space and quiet. Taxi rank , beach and supermarket right outside. Beach pebbly (take watershoes) and close enough to walk back with just a towel.. Boat and jetski rental too expensive to consider (200 Euro/hour).. so no-one was really doing it. Boat taxi rentals at the old town marina is very close. Take a water taxi to Lokrum (takes 10 minutes, leaves every 30 minutes) see peaccks, great food, Maximilians palace. Naturist beach]h.
There are 3+ rental units/apartments-all separately owned/managed and a couple of permanent residents in a lovely old home with a big shared terrace. Everyone was friendly.
The negatives were minor inconveniences.. you have to walk back down the back stairs to reach the terrace and the shower was pretty feeble, and WiFi wasn't fast enough to stream a video but okay for email, browsing, facebook etc... So many positives. A/C, views, location, beach, kitchen, comfy beds, and furniture, TV - even the funny looking pink paint in the pictures looks good when you actually see it. Great value, highly recommended.
Too many steps for young children (under 5) , okay for 5+ - and no good for disabled.
