About Rebecca R.

My husband and I moved to Dubrovnik 12 years ago. This house belonged to his great-grandfather and has been kept in the family for 5 generations.

Rebecca R. purchased this apartment in 1898

Why Rebecca R. chose Dubrovnik area

This apartment is located in an authentic stone family house, that has been home to our family for more than five generations. Recently renovated kitchen and bathroom provide modern convenience, while retaining the authentic charm of our family heritage. This apartment has been open to guests since 2011.

What makes this apartment unique

Even though this apartment is just 3 minutes away from the Old Town and beaches, it still feels very private and quiet in the evenings. Shops, restaurants, banks and bus lines are just a few metres away, and reserved parking (always hard to find in the summer!) is an extra plus.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is a 5 minute walk into the Old Town, and also close to beaches. There are tons of restaurants, bars, grocery stores nearby.

Rebecca arranged for a car to pick us up at the airport and take us to meet her in front of her apartment. It was perfect for my husband and I and as pictured, ie.. there are steep stairs up to the bedroom so if someone has limited mobility this is not the place for you. The terrace was an added bonus, we sat out each morning and had coffee and grapes from the vines overhead.

Would stay here again and highly recommend.

Great City and Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The owners were welcoming and extremely helpful with restaurant recommendations and day trip ideas. The apartment was located in a great location, next to the cable car and steps away from the walled city and many restaurants. The apartment is not appropriate for those with ambulatory issues. The stairs separating the bedroom and bathroom are steep but manageable. Overall we had a delightful stay!!!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here a couple of weeks ago for 6 nights. Rebecca and Vido arranged an airport transfer and then met us at the apartment . Only two of us so the apartment was a perfect size.The wifi is very good and the air con works well. All very clean. We loved sitting on the terrace. We didn't use the cooking facilities but washing machine was handy to use. 30 degree wash took about 45 mins. Would have been nice to have an iron. I made the mistake of putting some things in last minute unironed. Hair dryer is a travel one and switches off when it gets hot. No good if you have long thick hair like mine. The walk to the old town gates is a few minutes which is why it is a perfect location. We had to return to the apartment at lunchtime to check into work so was ideal for us. Also an hour in the air con to cool down as it was very hot. The cable car is almost next door. Up the steps and it is front of you. But you wouldn't know it was there as it is electric and silent.

A few tips: just before you get to the gates there are a few shops to the left. A small supermarket and an excellent bakery where we bought filled rolls most days. The bakery opposite the cable car is not so good. We ate at Pizzeria Castro ( probably the best Gourmet pizza ever) Dubravka 1836( ok for dinner but excellent breakfast) Gradska Kavana Arsenal ( gets very busy. Book the day before if you want a front table) Azur was recommended by Rebecca. Took awhile to find but was worth it. We were there early and just got a table. Was a Friday night so best to book a table. Madam Pi Pi . Excellent mixed grill. Took 3 attempts to get in. Opens earlier than written on the board outside a and you can't book. We bought the Dubrovnik pass so saw most cultural things and it gets you onto The Walls. We also used the bus ticket and went to

Cavtat . A pretty village to spend half a day in. We took the boat back which took an hour. A very slow and lots of fumes journey with all other boats speeding past us! Should have stuck with the bus.

Rebecca and Vido are great hosts and on call whenever you need them. We had a lovely week and wouldn't hesitate to stay in this apartment again.

Great location in beautiful Dubrovnik

  • 5 of 5

This appartment has a perfect location for exploring Dubrovnik. It is just 5 minutes walk from the Ploche gate, which is really close to the harbour and much quieter entry into town than the Pile gate. It's also perfect for the cable car and coach transfers to the airport. Great to have some outside space to cool off on the lovely shady terrace. Having visited the city ten years ago we knew that location is key for getting the most out of your stay so this appartment gets top marks for that. We also want to thank our hosts for their help, in particular arranging the taxi to pick us up from further along the coast and for meeting the taxi and taking us to the appartment - not sure we would have found it otherwise! All in all we had a great time and would recommend this appartment to anyone.

A perfect place

  • 4 of 5

A nice, authentic and quiet flat with two very kind and caring owners. The flat is placed near the old town but outside the tourist stream, a perfect place.

We were 4 females in our best age (70+) and we would look forward to visit Dubrovnik and Rebecca and Vido again.
