  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week long stay at Ludo's apartment. The whole experience from Ludo collecting us at the airport to explaining about Dubrovnik and how to get around was inch perfect - Ludo is a great host. The only thing that spoiled our stay was having to go back home!

The apartment was just the right size and the location was superb. A 10 minute bus ride into Dubrovnik but a first class location overlooking the yacht club.

We would definitely recommend the Captain's Rest.

Perfect apartment close to everything

  • 5 of 5

The host, Mr Luko picked us up at the airport and gave us during the ride tips on activities for the week. At the apartment there were maps and bus scedules wich Mr Luko informed us about as well as restaurants and how to get around. He was the perfect host and the apartment was fully equipped for whatever you may need. Close to supermarkets, bus stop, promenade, restaurants and beaches. So easy to get around. If we come back to Dubrovnik, we will definitely stay at the same apartment. When we left Mr Luko took us to the airport.

Couldn't be better

  • 5 of 5

The apartment suited us perfectly and added a lot to our stay in Dubrovnik. And Luko is a very accommodating host. We paid to have him pick us up at the airport, which we advise doing, and our flight was delayed by over 7 hours, but Luko adjusted his schedule to meet us there. The apartment is large and very comfortable with amazing views. And it is very quiet at night, which we really appreciate. It is also on the #6 bus line which goes right to the main gate of the Old Town. There are bakeries and grocery stores nearby. We have already recommended the apartment to a friend and would not hesitate to do so again.

We stayed in the apartment for two weeks and really have nothing to add to all the very positive comments that previous occupants have made.

Where Luko really excelled was when things didn't go to plan, namely:-

1. the washing machine wasn't working properly when we arrived. It was replaced within 24 hours at no inconvenience and

2. I left my wallet in the apartment after we left. I called Luko on arriving home and he went out of his way to locate it and keep it secure before returning it to me.

Luko, again thank you very much for providing us with such high quality accommodation and for 1. and 2. above. Regards - Mark

Very enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

The Captains Rest was everything we needed. Very clean, spacious and light.

Luko picked us up and took us back to the airport which we think is a must as it takes away the stress of finding the accommodation. Just a walk down the hill and you are in the centre of La Pad with all the restaurants and bars and the beach at the end of the Promenade. We ate mostly at the Restaurant Agora which served good food and had very pleasant staff and lovely clean facilities. A short walk up the hill and the bus stop to Dubrovnik is on the left hand side. We used Lea Travel (down the Promenade) for our trips out who we found to be very efficient. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Captains Rest and would recommend it to anyone and will certainly stay there again if we visit La Pad.

Great view, great location, great landlord.

  • 5 of 5

Luko was a great landlord and so helpful. He picked us up from the bus station and offered to give us a ride when we left. Gratis! Talk about great customer service. Plus, once you arrive at the apartment, he has maps, and some books of recommendations given by previous guests. Very helpful. Listing was accurate but photos don't do it justice. Loved that the wall of windows all open so that you can sit inside but feel like you are outside. Nice view over the harbor where you can watch the cruise ships come in. Hint: time your trips into Old Town Dubrovnik when no ships or small ships arrive. There is also a website which tells you how many passengers will be arriving. Apartment was clean, looked new, had modern appliances and everything needed to self cater a holiday. There is a small restaurant downstairs in the same building that was open for breakfast and lunch only at this time. A nice sized grocery store and two bakeries are four or five blocks away. The #6 bus goes right by the house and it's the one you take to Old Town. There is a great beauty shop right around the corner too that was inexpensive and really did a nice job on Tina's hair. There are a number of good restaurants within a few minutes easy walk so there is no need to go to Old Town every time you want to go out to eat. We enjoyed the historical aspect of Old Town, the churches and museums, walking the walls, the cable car to the fort but Old Town itself is, in my opinion, very touristy in not necessarily a good way. I would suggest getting out of Old Town to other neighborhoods (like Lapad) and meet and chat with some local folks away from the cruise ship crowds of Old Town. Go to Mato Krile's wine shop. He makes it on site and some of it rivals the best Chianti Classico Reserva. I absolutely recommend staying at Luko's place without any reservations. It had everything we needed and more.

Captain's Rest apartment is situated on Lapad Peninsula in a peaceful area of Dubrovnik. There are nice beaches in walking distance from the apartment.

Staying at Lapad is like taking a “two centre” holiday – without having to change location. On one side, you have the ‘city centre’, with all its many historic sites and cultural events. Then, on the other side, you have all you need for a quiet and relaxing ‘beach holiday’, with restaurants, café-bars, sports facilities, and romantic strolls around the coastline – all within easy walking distance.

You could take the local bus to the city centre. The bus stop is only 50m away, and buses run every 10 minutes.

This makes the ‘Captain’s Rest’ the most convenient location in Dubrovnik

Other Activities: boat trips to islands, snorkling
