About The Owner

I am Doda and I am from Dubrovnik. Born and raised. I have spent almost all of my life in the city and I love Dubrovnik. My hobby is taking care of my beautiful garden, which is lush and full of subtropical plants.I love to watch my garden grow.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1900

Why The Owner chose Dubrovnik

Me and my son Alberto live in an historic stone mansion located in my favorite area of Dubrovnik (Pile) and I believe that it is the best place to stay in Dubrovnik.We rent the bottom two floors and live on top floor. Really enjoy meeting people from different countries and listening to their stories and experiences. I hope to continue doing this for as long as possible. When I invite people into my home I supply them with the comfort that I would appreciate when traveling. I also make my lists of local finds and suggestions for my guests as to make the experience here in the city comfortable.

Beautiful, quiet villa with lovely gardens less than 5 minutes from Pile gate

  • 5 of 5

We had the first floor apartment which forms part of the villa. It is beautifully furnished, lovely high ceilings and windows and full of character. It was clean, comfortable and well-equipped. We had private use of a vine-covered terrace in the garden, which is clearly lovingly tended and is full of flowers and fruit. Access is along narrow pedestrian-only lanes which means that it is very quiet despite being less than 5 minutes' walk from the hubbub of Pile Gate.

Dobrila was a very kind and welcoming host. We loved our stay and highly recommend her apartment.

Perfect location

  • 3 of 5

We stayed here for 4 nights in late July and Dobrilla kindly let us check in early. The location couldn't be better - an easy 5 minute walk to Pile gate. The apartment is quite small for 4 adults and you have to walk through the twin bedroom to get to the main one. The walls and floors are quite thin and we could hear people throughout the night. We ate out every night during our stay, there are cooking facilities but they are very basic. Take plenty of mosquito repellent - we got bitten very badly in Dubrovnik

The two of us thoroughly enjoyed our month in beautiful, friendly Dubrovnik. Dobrila was our very kind and attentive hostess and from the moment we stepped into the warm and clean apartment we knew we would have a great stay. We were not disappointed. With the cool March nights and the days when the 'bura' blew, it was so nice to have a heating system that kept the apartment warm and comfortable. The highlight of the apartment is the patio, large, sunny and very private. We enjoyed many a lunch 'alfresco' followed by a relaxing afternoon in the spring sunshine. Dobrila was attentive to our needs and access to her laundry facilities was a big plus. The apartment met our expectations and was as advertized. Dubrovnik is beautiful and the apartment is a 5 minute walk to the Pile gate of the old town. We particularly enjoyed our forays into the country with trips to Bosnia (Sarajevo and Mostar), Montenegro and the neighbouring town of Cavtat. Next time we will take the ferry to the islands and do more exploring. We would certainly consider a return stay at this lovely apartment and recommend it to others.

Stilvolle Unterkunft in der Nähe der Altstadt

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben unsere Tage in Dubrovnik, in einer stilvoll eingerichteten Ferienwohnung, sehr genossen. Tatsächlich sind es von dieser schönen Altbauvilla nur wenige Minuten Fußweg zur Altstadt. Die Vermieterin Dobrilla hat sich sehr charmant und freundlich um uns gekümmert.

Die Küche ist mit allem ausgerüstet was man benötigt, um die Familie zu bekochen. Sehr schön sind die Terrassen, die mitTisch und Stühlen ausgestattet sind.

Bei der Buchung sollte man darauf achten, dass in der Villa drei verschiedene Apartments unterschiedlicher Größe vermietet werden. Das Haus ist nicht mit dem Auto zu erreichen. Bei der Anfahrt nutzt man die Auffahrt zum Hotel Imperial. Von hier aus kann man das Gepäck zur Villa tragen ( ca.250m). Dobrilla kann eine Parkkarte für das öffentliche Parkhaus in der Nähe überlassen, die sie mit 15€ pro Tag berechnet.
