About Stu Laurie

We love holidays and exploring different countries. After our first trip to Montenegro in 2006 we fell in love with the country and have always made time to visit and see friend we have made there. We decided to buy our property in 2007 and have let it out since 2009.

Stu Laurie purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Stu Laurie chose Montenegro

Thank you for taking the time to look at our apartment. We hope it will provide you with all the information you need.

In our search for a holiday home overseas, we came across Montenegro as an emerging holiday destination. We were amazed by the natural beauty of this small country.

Montenegro offered us a wonderful climate, mountain scenery, excellent beaches and much more.

We chose to buy in Becici because it has a wonderful beach, it is also in walking distance to the resorts of Rafalovici, Kamenova and Budva. Przno and Sveti Stefan are a short bus ride away. Becici has good amenities for a self catering holiday.

We really enjoy going to our holiday home. We like the comfort of our apartment and the lovely views and the convenience of a nice pool. We enjoy meeting with the friendly local people and we love the fantastic walks up into the hills and along the coast

The beach has a relaxed atmosphere with traditional cafes and restaurants. A great benefit for us as a family is being able to walk to the beach for a swim.

We have a well established local agent and team who will cater for the needs of our visitors. We want to share our fantastic holiday home by the sea with the hope that our visitors will enjoy it as much as we do.

We love the relaxed feel of the country, the people and the beautiful natural scenery. The combination of sea and mountains is spectacular.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Stuart and Elaine



I just wanted to let you know what a lovely stay we had in your apartment. We both think you have a great apartment there, you can't really fault it. The location is stunning, the flat itself is lovely and the complex is really nice and the team who manage the place seemed so helpful and friendly.



We really enjoyed our time there, us newly weds and the kids (especially the pool for the latter). Igor's dad was from Montenegro so in addition to visiting the coastal areas around Becici we also visited Podgorica and Lake Skadar. I was thoroughly impressed with everywhere we visited, the bars/restaurants/beaches were all a really good standard, the people were lively and friendly and there was a general good vibe. I have never been to Montenegro before but I definitely think it's a rising star.

Nice apartment, lovely views

  • 4 of 5

We have recently enjoyed a lovely holiday based at this apartment. It is well maintained and equipped and has lovely views from the balcony which overlooks the pool. Our 13 year old daughter spent lots of time in the pool and we usually managed to bag a sunbed or 2. I agree that the maps supplied aren't particularly good but Stuart's written directions are much more helpful which we used without a problem. Regarding the length/size of bunk beds in 2nd bedroom, we also have a tall 13 year old and she did not complain nor did she seem too big for them - but she has a single bed at home! The books and DVD's in the apartment were a nice touch too as were the beach towels supplied - left extra room in our luggage. Staff on site very helpful. I would highly recommend hiring a car to see the rest of Montenegro which is beautiful. We visited Kotor where we went on a boat trip and the Mausoleum where the views are breathtaking - best trip of the holiday. Watch out though as driving in Montenegro can be scary both the windy roads and local drivers!

All in all a wonderful holiday - thank you Stuart and Elaine

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for the review Tracy. We are really pleased you and your family had a great time in Montenegro and the apartment. It sounds like you made the most of your time there with trips out to explore. I agree it is nice to have a car as there is so much more to Montenegro than just the beaches, lovely as they are. Kind regards Stuart

Reasonable priced but decent property

  • 4 of 5

We were impressed by the reasonable price of this property and the location within Becici, close to Budva, so those were two of the main reasons we booked it. The apartment is tricky to find if you rely on Google Maps as it will send you to the nearby Ivanova building which is totally unrelated and the map system accessible via the HomeAway app is rubbish frankly. The building is opposite the Becici Spa Hotel and the entrance is about 50m down the hill from that, with the reception accessed through a little door in the car park beneath the pool, which it should be clearer about in the booking details and on the app. Nonetheless after some issues finding the place we were pleased enough with the apartment itself. It is modest but perfectly well equipped, with good aircon, a decent kitchen, a nice balcony and a decent pool. The staff there were friendly and helpful as well. Downsides would be the very small shower and the length of the bunk beds in the second room which our 13 year old only just fit in, so bear that in mind. She's 5ft 5 though so perhaps she is just too tall these days. The apartment is a short downhill walk to the beach and a horrendous uphill slog back but that's the area frankly as it is really hilly. Budva is a short drive or taxi journey away but too far too walk really unless you don't mind a long hot walk. Overall we were very happy with the apartment and feel it is good value for money. We would recommend to others as long as you are not looking for a particularly polished place to stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Charles, Thank you for taking the time to review our apartment. Sorry you had trouble finding the property but we do not recommend our visitors use 'google maps'. The Google map on the website indicates where the apartment is in relation to Becici and Budva. We point all our guests to the accurate maps to download and directions from Tivat, Podgorica, and Dubrovnik airports within the 'Hospitality' section on the Homeaway website, along with information about where to find the reception area below the pool. It is a steep walk back up from the beach, but I suppose that is what gives us lovely views. I am pleased you mentioned the staff being friendly and helpful as I know they work really hard keeping the place clean and helping visitors. Thanks again. kind regards Stuart and Elaine

Great holiday apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful apartment for ten days, what an amazing place in every way. The apartment was exceptionally well cared for with a lot of thought gone into equipping it and making it comfortable and user friendly.

The position of the apartment was first class, not only over looking the pool but the dramatic scenery of both mountains and sea. It was heaven to sit out on the balcony first thing in the morning basking in the sun whilst having breakfast.

Both Stuart and Elaine were amazingly helpful in making sure the holiday was the best experience possible. The organisation and execution of transfers was effortless due to their involvement.

The staff at the complex were available 24-7, spoke English and no request was too much trouble.

We would certainly recommend Montenegro and this apartment in particular as we had a fabulous time and will certainly return.

A great week in the sun

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the apartment at the end of June 2014 and we had a fanastic holiday. Prior to going on away we were sent lots of information and maps of the area which were a great help. Stuart and Elaine passed information onto us about the car hire and the journey down from Dubrovnik airport and this put our minds at rest as we had never driven abroad before and were quite apprehensive but we needn't have been as we managed to find our way to the apartment without any problems.

The apartment itself was great, had everything we needed and we had no problems while we were there. Becici is a lovely resort with lots to do but it was really worthwhile having a hire car as we took the opportunity to visit lots of lovely coves along the coastline and also the national park and Kotor Bay which was breathtaking!

The apartment is close to Budva only costing 1 euro for two adults on the local bus which ran until 2am.

Overall we had a fantastic holiday and can't wait to go back.

A* Holiday & Apartments

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are just back from a weeks holiday at the Becici sunset and I have to say what a fantastic time we had.

The apartment was beautiful, very well equipped, very clean and had amazing views from the balcony. The living are is equipped with Air con and i have to say is a must after a long day out in the blazing sun!. There is a lovely pool area which was very clean and well looked after with plenty of sun loungers to go round.

The location is perfect within walking distance to Becici beach which is well worth a visit then there is Budva old town which is a must Budva is an amazing place with many cobbled streets within the walls of the old town which was home to some beautiful restaurants shops and bars the setting was amazing and well worth a visit.

There is so many more beautiful places to go and visit it was a truly amazing place to spend our holiday and hope to visit again very soon.

FANTASTIC HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was lovely, exceptionally clean and had everything in it required, the view was spectacular and also overlooks the wonderful pool which our children spent lots of time in after coming home from the beach. The staff kept the pool spotless. Budva old town and surrounding areas are beautiful, the beaches on the island St. Nicholas is a must, also Sveti Stefan and Przno beaches are brilliant with crystal clear water. Stuart and Elaine were very helpful and friendly with lots of information of where to go and which restaurants to eat in and could not do enough for us. We would highly recommend this apartment and will definitely be back as we ran out of time to see everything!. Very good value for money.

Many thanks, Dave, Pamela and family
