Villa Ivana in Mlini gives you the VIP services at a reasonable price. I organized a trip for my group of 8 adults and 3 children in Dubrovnik. We stayed for 11 nights in April of 2019. There was plenty of room for all of us and the beds were very comfortable. Our trip was nothing short of amazing and that was because of Ivana and her beautiful home.
We booked this villa in November 2018 and had 5 months to plan the trips, food, transport. None of this would have been possible without Ivanas help. She communicated and helped us plan the whole thing. We felt like VIP's. Her property was beautiful and immaculately clean. The house had everything you could possibly need. My one regret was not listening to Ivana. We rented a car in addition to the van and driver through her for the group. The car was not necessary. The driveway was not ideal and there was no parking or expensive parking in the city. It was cheaper and more convenient to use the transport that she was happy to arrange. For a small fee they do airport transport, transport to grocery store, trips and anywhere else. It was especially helpful to have Ivana available by phone or text every step of the way. It was like a private concierge. No task was too big or small for Ivana to help. She even picked up and dropped off our sim cards. It was so helpful because we got to enjoy our vacation without worrying about the smaller details.
Ivana arranged a private Game of Thrones/ history tour for us in the old city. She arranged a private boat tour to the local popular islands and a private tour to Montenegro. Upon request, Ivana made sure there were car seats for the 3 children. The driver was also a tour guide who made sure that we didn't miss anything. The best part was, that when compared to group pricing on trip adviser this came out cheaper. It was so helpful to have a Ivana, a local, plan and negotiate the trip.
All the picture on the site do not do this home justice. I have rented homes all over the world and know that many properties use photography magic to make their home look better that what it is. Villa Ivana was the opposite. As beautiful as the home was in the pictures it was so much more beautiful in real life.
I can not recommend this home enough. I travel yearly and do not think any future accomodation can hold a stick to this one. Thank you again Ivana. Any future guest is so lucky to have you making sure their vacation is amazing.
