Dubrovnik is Croatia’s most popular tourist destination, and it’s not difficult to see why. An essentially medieval town reshaped by Baroque planners after a disastrous earthquake of 1667, Dubrovnik’s historic core seems to have been suspended in time ever since. Set-piece churches and public buildings blend seamlessly with the green-shuttered stone houses, forming a perfect ensemble relatively untouched by the twenty-first century. Outside the city walls, suburban Dubrovnik exudes Mediterranean elegance: gardens are an explosion of colourful bougainvillea and oleanders; trees are weighted down with figs, lemons, oranges and peaches.
Dubrovnik is worth a visit at any time of year, although spring and summer – when life spills out onto the streets and café tables remain busy well into the night – bring out the best in the city. Croatia’s cultural luminaries visit the town during the Dubrovnik Summer Festival in July and August, bringing an added dash of glamour to the streets, while the main event in winter is the Feast of St Blaise on February 3, when the patron saint of the city is honoured by a parade and special mass, followed by much drinking and eating.
We enjoy beautiful things - travel the world and expect the best, so we like to offer our guest the best when they stay at our holiday villa. We are born in Dubrovnik and we would like you to offer you an authentic experience of our city Dubrovnik. Looking forward to see you soon and wish you an amazing holiday!
Irena & Pero purchased this villa in 2014
Villa are situated in Mlini bay bay which is the place with highest number of sunny days in region of Dubrovnik. The name Mlini is many centuries old as the place was known as a wine growing region producing best quality wines for the nobelty of the old Dubrovnik Republic. Today the Mlini area is known for many villas and houses located directly on the sea with completely open sea view and sunshine all the day. Known for its sunny side, the Mlini bay is open for swimming also during the winter. Though the swimming season ends in November, there are many locals that wait for sunny days in winter during January when the temperature during the day can be up to 25 Celzius, enough for a jump into the sea. The real swimming season again starts in May when temperatures are nice, a little hot, but not too hot, perfect for holidays. 1st of May is the time when vacationers come again to Mlini to enjoy the sea and the sun every day. Because of its seasonal life the area of Mlini is known as a place for holidays with people coming here from all over the world.
Picture perfect sunset views over the bay. - Great location for the explore islands and the Dubrovnik Riviera - Excellent food and wine in all Dubrovnik area - Proximity to beaches and port of Dubrovnik.....great place for family and friends to recharge.The private pool is also very secluded and offers guests the opportunity to enjoy all the amenities of Villa Mlini
From pick up at airport to this lovely villa Irena could not have been more helpful. We were four couples and had loads of space to spread out. Beautifully equipped and within easy walking distance of the beach and various tavernas/restaurants. As there were some very high temperatures during our stay the swimming pool was welcome and the shaded terrace and summer kitchen provided a lovely BBQ experience. Irena went above and beyond to make my wife's birthday special -nothing was too much trouble for her. Mlini is a delightful little place with just enough variety to keep your interest. We found the restaurants good,affordable and without exception staffed by welcoming and friendly people. I have no hesitation in awarding 5 stars.
As the saying goes, ' If Calsberg made holiday homes and Owners' this is exactly what it would be like.
First off let me just say that Pero and Irena could not have been more friendly and helpful if they had tried.
Pero was so helpful, so much so, he went and bought us our staple provisions so that we could enjoy a drink and some food without having to walk to the shops on the day we arrived. He even went into town and exchange our money for us; he arranged (which we would thoroughly recommend) a private 3 Island boat trip, a winery tour and a guide for the old town, transport to and from all venue included. They were fantastic, the people who did the tour etc. were very professional and knowledgeable.
The Villa itself had everything you could ever want, plenty space and lovely big rooms, all air conned, our only grumble was, there wasn’t enough long mirrors! The beds were comfortable and the place was spotless. Plenty hot water and towels.
We even manage to wash and dry our clothes prior to home time.
We BBQ’d a few times and had all we needed at hand, the long table, which, comfortable sat 11 of us was undercover outside, and was an idea spot to eat alfresco and have a yap with some wine, and the ice making machine came in very handy indeed .
The Pool was well used and kept really clean.
Irena, thank you very much for your Cherry liqueur, it was amazing and so thoughtful, we drank it all.
The local area of Mlini is beautiful, and very picturesque, there is a lovely walk down to a wee Bay and we even saw a water polo match, the restaurants were lovely we ate in the 2 nearest to the villa (can't remember their names) and had a bring back from the pizza place at the bottom of the village; also very yummy.
Rating from the Quines (Scottish Ladies) is a resounding
Five star award * * * * *
We absolutely, could not have asked for more from our holiday.
Well done Pero and Irena. We will most definitely be back!
We had a wonderful holiday at the villa. We were a family party of three generations. The weather was very hot so we took full advantage of the pool, the air conditioning and the extremely comfortable and spacious accommodation. Apart from the few times we went out, the children spent most of their time in the pool, joined frequently by the adults. We wandered down to the beach a few times , and ate at four separate restaurants within easy walking distance. Irena and Pero welcomed us personally, and were very helpful with organising taxis for our arrival and departure. We had one very enjoyable evening boat trip to Dubrovnik for a wander and a meal.
All in all we couldn't have asked for a better villa to spend a very happy family holiday.
We were a family of 7. This is a luxury villa with everything we could wish for. First class accommodation - large beds, lovely cotton sheets, plenty of storage space, good showers, exceptionally clean, every kitchen appliance we could think of and all very large and roomy. Lovely swimming pool and outside area. Villa is quiet yet within 5 minutes walk of a wonderful beach and village shops, water taxis, restaurants etc so car not necessary. Irena is extremely helpful and even arranged our transfers to and from airport. Best villa we have ever stayed in Highly recommended.

Villa is in great condition, very modern,clean and it had all the amenities we needed spesually covered pergola terasse and private pool.

Villa is situated on seaside location, were it is easy to access to beach,restaurants and Dubrovnik centar is just 10 minutes drive and each 30 minutes you have Bus to Dubrovnik,much better of use the car.
All in all I can recommend this place without any reservations to anyone. If you are looking for place where you can spend quality time with your family / friends, this is the place.

We wanted a quiet, relaxing & romantic holiday and we chose this amazing 5 bedroom Villa Mlini for our one week Croatia vacation. It was certainly a highlight of our trip. Irene has meet us on arrival with grocery staples and advice about the property and surrounding area. The villa is ideally located with breathtaking views from the balconies. It was extremely clean, beds comfortable, kitchen well stocked, and a wonderful patio with swimming pool.My brother and his wife from New York joined us and together we enjoyed in the Mlini beach snorkeling, outdoor kitchen and proximal distance to so many outings. The city of Dubrovnik is only 10 minutes away from the villa.Having rented the car, we were able to experience a true taste of the area. We are visits Old town Dubrovnik, cable car…nearby memorable trips were to Ston, wineries on Peljesac peninsula to the north and to the south, we loved Cavtat and Gruda. Fine dining at Gruda restaurant (Konavoski Dvori).All of our outings were easy driving day trips and as much as the places we visited will always be great memories, the best part was coming back to the villa, wine on the terrace, watching the sun go down…just amazing.A special thank you to our lovely property manager and we highly recommend this property.
Described as the pearl of the Adriatic, Dubrovnik will not fail to impress with great City walls rising out of the brilliant Adriatic against a backdrop of steep mountainsides. Within the walls of the old town are some fine architecture and lively streets crammed with shops, cafes and restaurants. Walk the City walls to enjoy the beautiful roofscape of the old town and the seascape beyond. Visit the Franciscan and Dominican monasteries and stroll down the cobbled streets and alleyways or relax in the cafes. During the summer months the Dubrovnik festival hosts concerts on most nights providing music of all types.
In Dubrovnik there are popular beaches all around the Lapad Peninsula. From the old town harbour ferries go regularly to the small island of Lokrum just a few minutes away, where Dubrovnik people traditionally like to go for a swim. A short distance down the coast there are sandy and shingle beaches at Kupari and Mlini.
The nearby islands of Lopud, Sipan and Kolocep are easily reached by ferry from Dubrovnik. Much quieter but still historically interesting. Lopud has one of the best sandy beaches in the region whjoch can be reaced by walking across the narrow neck of thre island from the town of Lopud. The charming harbour front village of Suderad on Sipanhas a well preserved fortified palace from the 15th century.
About 10km from Dubrovnik is the famous landscaped garden and arboretum of Trsteno a Mediterranean garden with a fine array of trees and breathtaking views. The gardens were created by the nobleman Ivan Gucetic in the grounds of his summer villa built between 1494 and 1502 .
This delightful town is set between two bays with restaurants and cafes around the harbour front which is a popular mooring place for yachtsmen. Narrow alleyways and stone staircases wind their way up the hillside from the waterfront between charming stone houses. There are plenty of excellent beaches close at hand. The town is just 10 minutes drive from Dubrovnik airport and no more than 15 minutes from Dubrovnik old town.
The picturesque town of Ston with its small sister town of Mali Ston are picturesque fortified medieval towns standing either end of the narrow isthmus that joins the Peljesac peninsula to the mainland. Rich in history they are places of culinary excellence and several renowned seafood restaurants are there. Prapratno Cove, close to Ston, provides one of the finest sandy beaches in Croatia. Dubrovnik is within 40 minutes drive down the spectacular coast road.The Dubrovnik Republic acquired control over Peljesac in 1333 and proceeded to construct massive fortifications in the form of a 5.5 kilometre wall spanning the isthmus and circling the towns of Ston and Mali Ston that stood on the coast at either end of the wall. The wall was built between 1336 and 1358 and is considered to be the longest defensive wall in Europe. Above Mali Ston and forming part of the town's fortification stands the impressive five-towered castle, Koruna. Mali Ston itself is laid out in terraces rising up the hillside and overlooking the sheltered harbour with its landmark circular Toljevac Tower built in 1478. Just across the isthmus lies Ston, laid out to a grid plan in the 14th century, the town is reminiscent of Dubrovnik and contains some fine public buildings dating from the 15th and 16th centuries. The ancient wall has been restored and is open to the public. The walk from Ston to Mali Ston provides wonderful views of the coastline and towns below. The saltpans at ston, still operating today are estimated to have generated two thirds of the Dubrovnik Republic's revenue in the 14th century. Nearby the small community of Broce, reached by a causeway running beside the Ston channel, was established in 1349 and has historic buildings and a delightful beach.
The Peljesace peninsula, some 65km long is only 6km across at its widest point. It joins the main land at Ston and run parallel to the main Dalmatian coast. The peninsula is characterised by a rugged natural beauty. Mountains of over 900 metres height run down the spine of the peninsula and the coastline is indented with many natural bays and harbours. The principal town on the Peninsula is Orebic. The peninsula has some of the nicest beached in Croatia, both sand and shingle and many that are in quiet and picturesque bays. Trpanj is a pretty harbour town with a delightful beach, linked by ferry to the mainland at Ploce. Trstenik and Zuljana are amongst the prettiest beach front villages that you will find in Croatia.
The historic towns of Ston and Mali Ston, with their massive fortifications, have guarded the entrance to the Peninsula since the 14th century. Today they are also famed for their excellent restaurants and locally harvested oysters.Local wines from the Peljesac peninsular are considered to be amongst Croatia's finest.
