Villa Branko has stunning views of Dubrovnik and is within easy walking distance to the town, beach and all the historical, cultural, and atheletic activities that Dubrovnik has to offer. The house is charming and beautifully crafted of white stone. The living/great room is large, airy and you can enjoy your morning coffee looking at the walled Old Town and the constant drama of ships and boats on the sea. The kitchen and outdoor terrace with its stone table and setting makes every meal a treat. The house has four bedrooms and five full baths and accomodates 8 adults comfortably. The house, terrace, garden and second floor balcony give you that picture postcard setting.
Our family of four adults had a wonderful 5 days at Villa Branko - a great location for exploring the city and beaches of Dubrovnik. The views are spectacular. The house is very comfortable, with lots of space and amenities. There is a grocery store just up the street and a bakery just down, near the cable car (making it easy to go up to see the amazing panorama). We walked everywhere and never had to take a cab - just walked home in the lovely summer evening air. But be prepared to walk up and down lots of stairs, as Dubrovnik is very vertical so Villa Branko is too. Also, some in our group would have liked stronger air conditioning as we visited in August (note that the back rooms have fans, while the front rooms -- which get direct sun -- have AC), but otherwise we had all we needed for a wonderful time in Dubrovnik. It's 5 minutes to the beach, 10 minutes to the city sights - I recommend Villa Branko highly!
I cannot praise the Villa Branko enough. We had an AMAZING stay there while in Dubrovnik. It really was perfect. It was everything I had envisioned and wanted - walking distance to the old town, walking distance to the beach, and great views and lots of space to hang out as a group. Seriously, the view of the old town alone was worth every euro. We jokingly called it the million dollar view. We were 4 different couples, so each of us had our own bedroom with bathroom. Also, we did not take advantage of the outdoor barbecue, as we went out every night, but highlighting it because knowing it was an option was also a plus. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is thinking of visiting Dubrovnik. Consider it your home away from home.
Villa Branko was perfect for our family of four - a beautiful home with plenty of space for all of us - and the perfect location for exploring Dubrovnik and the surrounding area. We couldn't have appreciated how ideal the location was until we arrived. Villa Branko is a short walk outside the walled city, which made it convenient to explore the Old Town everyday without having to deal with the noise, crowds and endless stairs of living inside Old Town. The views were amazing, we didn't want to leave. The nearby grocery, cafe and bakery were very convenient; we found everything we needed within walking distance. The A/C was a welcomed respite after a day of exploring in the August heat. Finally, the owner was very responsive and helpful with local advice; she met us upon our arrival and made sure we were comfortable during the week. We highly recommend Villa Branko.
Villa Branko was very well set up for our family while we visited Dubrovnik. Having been there I can now say that it is in the most desirable part of town to stay. It is walking distance to the old town, and to the beach, and there is a grocery store and a cafe a few doors up. The back two bedrooms do not have a/c, which I did not realize before booking, and while we were there it was very hot. The outdoor sitting area is lovely, and the whole house is decorated very nicely and the bathrooms are all very new. It has the most incredible view of the walled city! I would stay there again the next time I am in Dubrovnik and I would recommend it to my friends.
Villa Branko is the perfect home away from home in beautiful Dubrovnik. Everything was as advertised and described. There was more than ample room for six of us in the very comfortable bedrooms and plenty of living space in the family / living room where we enjoyed a panoramic view of the old town and the Island of Lokrum. Four couples would still have plenty of space.
A friendly neighborhood with local grocery store and bakery nearby. A bus stop directly across the road was an easy link to the rest of town. The owner Katherine in the US was easy to work with and her Manager Lonetta in Croatia was so helpful and concerned for our enjoyment and satisfaction. We had some great meals and BBQ's at the house and also enjoyed some of the local restaurants. The sunsets along with Maro and Baro the pet turtles provided entertainment while we had evening drinks on the patio. We would not hesitate at a chance to return to Dubrovnik and Villa Branko.
Villa Branko is close to the Old Town, its beaches, and the old seaport. It allows the visitors to take full advantage of the Old Town's pedestian only streets. Walk the stone walls and streets and enjoy the many restaurants, shops, the open food market, art galleries, night life and entertainment. Take advantage of the walking tours in town and boat trips from the old port. To go to other parts of Dubrovnik, there is a bus stop just out of the garden gate, and taxis are available. You can take the many land and sea day tours to areas outside of Dubrovnik; Mostar, Bosnia-Hercegovina, Montenegro, Medugorje, Konavle country, wine country, or visit the many islands of the Adriatic, off the Dubrovnik/Dalmatian coastline.
