|Minimum Stay||4 nights|
This apartment is directly across the landing from our other apartment, Cathedral View, and could be ideal for a larger group if rented together. Ask for preferential rates if this is the case.
The Old Bakery is lovely & light & a deceptively large studio apartment. A great use of space enables 3 people to sleep on mezzanine beds giving ample living and storage space on the ground floor. The high ceiling features exposed beams.
There are four windows with rare views of a garden & old Dubrovnik buildings to the rear & with glimpses of the fortified walls beyond, giving a tranquil hideaway but still in the thick of it all. The windows are all double glazed with working shutters to enhance your stay.
Recently renovated to a high standard and freshly decorated for the season the studio features wooden and tiled flooring throughout, a shower room with sink & a WC with window, a kitchen area with all one would expect, a dining area and a sitting area and ample storage. The perfect place.

Saraca Apartments are gorgeous holiday lets for self-catering in the centre of the walled Old Town of Dubrovnik in Southern Croatia. They have a superb location only a few steps from every amenity of the Old Town you could need - yet offer great tranquility when you want to get away from it all. There are no steep steps to climb to get to the building itself and once in the building the apartments are on the second floor.
Cathedral View is a two bedroom apartment (plus sofa bed) with superb views of the Cathedral (though you can rest well as the bells do not ring!), the Square and Srj mountain behind Dubrovnik. The Old Bakery, just across the hall from Cathedral View, is a well planned, light and airy studio apartment with views of an Old Town lane and buildings and garden vines below.
Both apartments are finished to a high standard and are a few minutes walk from the beaches, old town harbour, the Stradun, cafes & restaurants and the famous Jazz Square.
All queries are cheerfully answered!
Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our holiday in Dubrovnik - The Old Bakery was beautiful, Dinko and his wife were incredibly helpful and we had a wonderful time.
You are very lucky to have such beautiful accomodation in a truly wonderful place.
My girlfriend and I lucked out and found the Old Bakery on VRBO after our previous reservations fell through.
In her words, the Old Bakery "is an extremely livable space." It is a studio apartment but with a lofted king and lofted single bed it ends up being surprisingly roomy. We spent a week there and never once felt cramped or crowded. The unit is quite charming with its exposed stone walls and wide plank floors. It is also a corner unit with big windows overlooking some leafy pathways through Dubrovnik's Old Town.
The owner Benedict and the manager Kate were in contact throughout, and went to great lengths to ensure that the arrangements were made smoothly. We met Kate as planned and she walked us to the apartment as planned. Kate also took the trouble to arrange for taxi service to the airport on our way out, despite it being a 3 a.m. departure time.
I should note that because of the very central location, there can be a bit of noise in the evenings. If this bothers you then it may be better not to stay in Old Town. Also, the apartment is a walk-up (and the lofted beds are accessed by ladders), so it may not be appropriate for mobility-compromised individuals.
Thanks Benedict and Kate for making it an easy stay for us.
What a lovely experience - staying in The Old Bakery! A pretty, quirky apartment that feels spacious due it's clever layout. It is well-equipped with all modern requirements and in a tasteful, eclectic way. The apartment is in a fantastic location for exploring Dubrovnik Old Town on foot with other transport links nearby. The owner Benedict smoothly arranged transfers and meet-and-greet with Luka, Kate and Dinko who are a friendly introduction to Dubrovnik and it's people. They were kind and informative. A perfectly organised rental arrangement!!
We were really pleased because the pictures are completely true to the appts - airy, light, clean, kitchen well appointed, modern but with a traditional feel, good views, excellent central location. lovely views down onto the square, without too much of the noise (2nd floor).
In the summer, a cool and peaceful escape from the heat and bustle. Showers have good water pressure, and the bathroom in the 2 bed appt is gorgeous. Beds comfy. Everything seemed to function well.
Near to a fabulous deep rocky swimming point just off the city walls, and maybe 10 mins to city beach (the only sandy one for miles). Restaurants bars and harbour all within minutes.
We were met at the city gate from our taxi by one of the owners, and given as much info about what to do, where to go as we could possibly need - it was a really friendly welcome. We've been to this same place twice now - once for a week and again for a long weekend.
Die Lage der FeWo ist perfekt (Strand, Cafes etc., Sehenswuerdiglkeiten) und die Einrichtung sehr geschmackvoll/ exklusiv. Leider gab es kurz vor Ankunft einen Wasserschaden, sodass die eine Wand nass war. Die Wohnung war dementsprechend feucht und muffig. Der Vermieter hat uns die Wohnung trotzdem kommentarlos vermietet. Erst als wir uns beschwerten, bekamen wir die groessere Nachbarwohnung......Merkwuerdig....Die aller sauberste Wohnung war sie leider nicht. Aber ok. Da wir in der Vorsaison in Dubrovnik waren, war diese Wohnung recht ruhig. Im Hochsommer kann ich mir jedoch vorstellen, dass sie nachts sehr laut ist (Pubs gleich um die Ecke). Bei Ankunft wird man von Dinko abgeholt. Ein netter aber durchaus konfuser Mensch... halt suedlaendisch.....Dubrovnik ist aber ne tolle Stadt und ein Besuch wert. Viel Spass!
Our beautiful property is located in a stunning old stone building that has recently had a facelift on the outside too by UNESCO so it is now simple stunning both inside and out. Conveniently placed in the heart of the Old Town, just a small distance from everything you would need but also quiet too. The beaches are from a 3 minute walk away, the grocery store is 4 minutes away, bars and restaurants about 3 minutes away. The vibrant culture of the Old Town is at your doorstep, and the cathedral is right there beside you, but the apartments themselves are truly a calming place.
