Magnificent Newly-built Villa in Mlini with Private Pool and Near Beaches
average rating of 4.8 based on 10 reviews

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

Great villa finished to a high specification. Location was perfect for a walk down the hill to get a boat to all the nearby villages and Dubrovnik. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance, with Flamingo being 100 yards away and a great place to eat.

There was no DVD player as advertised but not too much of an issue. Would highly recommend the villa as a base to explore the Dubrovnik area.

May Stay

  • 4 of 5

My daughter and family stayed in the villa while exploring Dubrovnik and the area. My wife and I had planned to be there but couldn't due to family circumstances. She and family enjoyed the spacious and lovely home. I had picked the place because of the heated pool, location, and price. Unfortunately the pool heating wasn't functional but my daughter didn't complain as the weather was quite cool and they were busy during their time in Croatia. The owner was very accommodating in the follow-up discussions and said the pool could have been fixed if it was mentioned by my daughter.

Owner's Response: Dear Ken, thank you for your review. We did find a fault with the circuit regarding pool heating and had it repaired straight away. I am sorry that your family experienced this issue, but I do hope that the compensation that I offered was appropriate. It is a lovely villa, and you are correct to expect that everything should be in top order. Your family were the first guests who used the pool this season, and the fault that you experienced could not have been foreseen (we have not had that issue before). We did have prior guests, but they swam in the sea (which I find amazing in March!!).

A very spacious villa in an excellent location.

  • 4 of 5

Great alfresco dining on the covered terrace offering lovely views, very good BBQ and lovely pool area. We enjoyed walking down the many steps to the beach and harbour where we caught the boat to Dubrovnic. A very good restaurant down there offering excellent meals. The only downside due to the design of the villa was the ensuite's were a little dark due to not having windows. Otherwise a fantastic villa. Eci was very attentive when we had any problems. Charles Hayes, the owner was very helpful prior to us going out there.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your thoughtful review. I take all comments seriously and I will look to increase the wattage of the lightbulbs in the ensuites where there are no windows. An advantage of where the ensuites are located is that they remain sufficiently cool along with the connected bedrooms in the height of summer with the assistance of the air conditioning. My Agent, Eci, is a star! Always happy to assist and extremely knowledgable as she runs her own local holiday lettings company and has done so for many years.

Perfect in all respects....

  • 5 of 5

This was my second trip to Croatia but first with my young and demanding family! The host, Mr Hayes, dealt exceptionally well with a list of random requests and went out of his way to ensure a pleasant stay was had by all.

The house is huge and very well equipped. It's new and very clean and has all the creature comforts that one would expect of a luxury high end villa. Small details like the high quality linen, towels and toiletries really set this villa apart from some of the others we considered. My boys found no end of excitement exploring new areas of the house and the wonderfully tended gardens surrounding it.

The views from the terrace are outstanding and provided the perfect backdrop for many a barbecue using the vast array of fine locally sourced fresh foods on offer at the local markets.

Mlini itself is a wonderful unspoilt spot with some great walks and superb local eateries. My wife made a point of taking a short walk down the main road to the bakery each morning to bring back some of the famed local bread.

We had such a great time that we are sure to go back again and would not have any hesitation in recommending both the villa and the area to friends and family.

Hats off to Mr Hayes and his team for being such warm and welcoming hosts!

Lovely Villa with views to die for

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 4 ladies that like to holiday together. Over the years we have rented quite a few villas in various locations. This one was one of the better ones. It is modern and nicely furnished. The balcony where we ate most of our meals overlooks the sea and the islands in the distance. It was lovely, a great place to eat breakfast. Mlini was just a short walk down some very steep hills or steps depending on the route you took. There were a couple of good restaurants and a pretty little harbour. The agent for the property was very helpful and informative. The only thing that we found the villa lacked were small finishing touches like bread baskets, napkins and some nice serving dishes. I would recommend this property, a great place to holiday with easy access to Dubrovnik, Cavtat and the airport.

Da wo's schoen ist

Schönes, gut gelegenes Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

Nach langer Zeit mit Frau, Schwägerin und jeweiliger Familie es auch endlich mal nach Kroatien geschafft. Großartiges Land und die Dubrovnik-Ecke eine wunderschöne Gegend, darüber hinaus auch insgesamt sehr sauber und sicher.

Die Villa ist hervorragend ausgestattet, genügend Platz, Fernseher, Internet, Bäder etc. Die Küche ist sehr gut geeignet, um auch mal eine Schar hungriger Kinder zu bekochen. Die Schlafzimmer sind gross und gemütlich, und Wohnzimmer, Terrasse etc. gut geschnitten, so dass man sich nicht auf den Geist geht, wenn man nicht möchte. Gleichzeitig aber für gemütliche Spieleabende wiederum sehr gut geeignet. Die Bäder und das Haus selber sind sehr sauber, und wir haben uns dort angekommen schnell wohlgefühlt. Die Terrasse, mit Aussicht und Sonnenschein ist mindestens so schön wie auf dem Foto, und man kann es sich dort bei einer Flasche sehr gemütlich machen.

Die Villa liegt in einer guten Gegend, nur ein paar Kilometer von der beeindruckenden und lebendigen Altstadt Dubrovniks, sowie direkt bei ein paar sauberen, schönen Stränden. Wir haben uns auch zweimal zum Wandern in die Berge gewagt – sehr empfehlenswert. Infrastruktur ist alles da, was man braucht. Ein paar Bars und gemütliche Cafés, Supermärkte etc. und die “süßen, kleinen Läden“ wo meine Frau, die Klamotteen bekommt, die sie unbedingt noch brauchte… 

Mlini is 11 km from Dubrovnik and is located in an area called Zupa dubrovacka, known for its rich Mediterranean vegetation. This traditionally agricultural and fishing area is very popular with tourists due to beautiful beaches and landscapes, mild southern climate and Dubrovnik's rich cultural heritage. If you are looking for a quiet holiday and sandy beaches in the vicinity of a large tourist destination, then this is a perfect location. Although the villa is in a quiet area, the general location is excellent for children.

In former times the village was known for its water mills ('Mlini' means 'Mills') because many brooks and streams enabled their use. The brooks with many small falls still pass through the place and are today inhabited by innumerable ducks. During your stay you should also visit the Church of St. Hilarius (1449) and the Chapel of St. Roch which are both in the vicinity of the beach. Remains of Roman buildings can be found on the way to Cavtat. Mlini is part of the touristic resort of Zupa. Sandy beaches, cafes, restaurants and many other touristic activities are available. Ideal is the proximity to Dubrovnik and Cavtat (the local buses pass every 30 minutes). In Mlini you can have both, a restful holiday in a silent Mediterranean place and entertainment in touristic centers.

This is precisely why the owners of Villa Magnolia built it in this location!
