About Dubravka Ljepopio

I was born in Dubrovnik and I spent 20 years living in this beautiful city. Even now living abroad I come to Dubrovnik every year because this is the place where I feel at home. Its magnificient fortress walls, intriguing history, and stunning scenery are extraordinary. Some time ago we took a casual look at what properties were available and came to this beautifull Villa Antipodes.<br>Our manager Dube and her team manage the property to ensure it is kept spick and span and ready for our guests whereever you come from. She can organise to get you to the apartment and will have someone show you where everything is. The computer in the lounge has a dedicated part of our website that gives you lots of information about the villa and there is a printed manual as well. The website also has lots of information on how to find your way around Dubrovnik, and what you can do while you are there.

Dubravka Ljepopio purchased this villa in 2006

Why Dubravka Ljepopio chose Dubrovnik area

We love the location of our Villa, in the sought after Ploce District of Dubrovnik. It is quiet and has gorgeous views over the Old Town. We can watch the cruise ships arriving and departing or take an easy walk to the Old Town, the gondola, safe swimming beaches and the port. We never get bored with the array of things to do whether it is walking the Stradun, people watching as we drink a wine or coffee, visiting the sights, kayaking around the Island of Lokrum or taking a boat trip to one of the many islands. Then there are the restaurants with the huge array of dishes. If we want to extend our trips, we can take a bus or boat to Cavtat, a gorgeous town just south of Dubrovnik or go further afield to our favourite Plitvice National Park. It's such a great location in every way!

What makes this villa unique

Five minutes walk and we're inside the stunning fortress walls of Dubrovnik. Our Italian gourmet kitchen allows us to eat at home in luxury inside or out on the shaded courtyard or if our fancy takes us we can walk into own to one of the many restaurants. Our air conditioning ensures we are cool during the height of summer or warm in winter. It's a wonderful place to wake up to, relax during the day and a haven to return to at the end of a busy day exploring the sights of Dubrovnik. The central living area with the extended indoor outdoor living (the middle courtyard) allows for privacy or togetherness. It is a perfect spot for just us or our many friends who want to join us - children, couples or family groups. Spread over 3 floors means it has a wonderful sense of space.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"Top Villa"

This house is just perfect. It is a beautiful restoration of a lovely house. Nothing too fancy but 5 star comfort. Everything has been thought about down to the provision of beach towels and the bed linen is top quality as well. The attention to detail is 1st class. In many ways it is quite simple but covers everything. The terrace is a great spot for sitting out in the evening and the kitchen is well provided. The computer and Wi Fi exceedingly useful to have. Also Cvjetko and his wife are on hand and available to assist in arrangements - it’s like having a personal assistant. Probably one of the best holiday homes we have stayed in.

Dubrovnik Holiday

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the villa for one week. There was four of us - my husband and two teenage sons. The Villa is very comfortable had everything we needed - very clean. Tastefully decorated!!! Good location - close to old town Dubrovnik and some beaches. If you have a car - there is no parking near by - also the only other thing is the stairs for some people - it might be too much. (My parents were suppose to stay with us but the stairs and also the bedroom located on the lower level of the Villa doesn't have air conditioning and a fan didn't quite do the job - also the room had a mild mildew smell - only that room rest of Villa was great air conditioning and no smell. (My parents ended up going to stay in a really nice hotel not too far away.) We had the grocery store deliver a few groceries to us. We had been traveling around Europe for just over two weeks and eating out alot - so it was nice to be able to just relax and eat a few meals out on the terrace! The area has lots of character, very lush - very scenic. The couple that look after the Villa for the owners of the Villa were very helpful - very nice!!! Take good care of us! The owners were also very helpful with any questions we had about the area!!! : D We would definitely recommend the Villa - but if you have any health issues the stairs could be a problem especially in the summer when it is very warm and humid outside. We enjoyed our stay!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments Cheryl and Mike. We have organised to do a revamp of the entrance level bedroom and ensuite with a new larger fan for the ensuite, powerful air conditioning unit for the bedroom and total paint of the rooms. These solutions will solve the problems. And yes, the Villa does not suit elderly or someone with any health related issues. Great to keep fit after all the wonderful icecreams in the old town!

Brilliant stay - Dubrovnik dazzler

  • 5 of 5

We are six Aussie friends, who had a wonderful four days in this lovely house which is equipped with everything you need to make a perfect stay in Dubrovnik. Whether you want to stay in and laze on the lovely vine-shaded patio, whilst slow cooking a meal in the charcoal weber, or explore the old and the new towns you couldn’t choose a better base.

The villa is two minutes from the cable car station, and about 10 minutes into the Old Town. Public buses run from Pile Gate into the new part of the city regularly too.

Our local property managers, Dube and her husband Cjvetko, did everything to help- from helping us up and down the 78 steps with our luggage, to providing great insight into local sites, restaurants and places of interest. Dube even picked us up for a big supermarket and butcher shopping expedition – thank you Dube! We just couldn’t do better than our lazy evening meals on the patio!

From a practical perspective the kitchen is well set up with everything you need to self-cater including basic provisions, and there is a great laundry room and clothes drying area as well. There is also a computer and phone for local calls provided by the hosts.

The booking process was very straightforward. Anne and Devon have set up a wonderful website which is full of helpful information, not only about their villa, but about the surrounding area too. We would highly recommend Villa Antipodes to friends and family.

Lovely villa, but...

  • 3 of 5

We loved Dubrovnik and on the whole we were very happy with the villa, which is mostly very comfortable and ideally situated to take advantage of everything the city has to offer. Our stay was let down only by the quality of the ground floor accommodation. The bedroom was dark and dingy, with no aircon and a musty smell, and the ensuite bathroom never quite dried out. In both rooms the decor and equipment were in desperate need of some TLC. I have relayed these comments to the (very helpful) owners and they have said they will take them on board, so I hope by that by the time this review is published these problems will have been rectified.

Coast/Beach:

Walk 5 minutes to the Fortresses of Dubrovnik Old Town, the closest beach, or the gondola. Add 3 minutes and you will be inside the Old Town and the port. Take a day trip by boat to one of the many islands or nearby historic Cavtat with its fine restaurants and line up of super yachts. Take a 30 minute walk to the beach to the south of the Ploce gate for a cooling swim and watch the sun as it sets over walled city. Or try the "hole in the wall" where you can dive into the sea or enjoy a drink.

Travel:

Dubrovnik International airport is 30 minutes south of Dubrovnik.

Dubrovnik is not a car friendly city and there are no trains to Dubrovnik. The public transport system is reasonably cheap and easy to access. Our property manager, Dube will help you work out the best way to get around.

Car hires are available and if you bring your car, Dube will assist you to find appropriate parking - either 400 metres from the Villa or further afield at a more reasonable price.

It is easy to walk!

There are many ferries and boats that will take you to many beautiful islands close to Dubrovnik.

Alternatively Dube can arrange for a taxi to take you to special places so you don't have to worry about driving and can enjoy the scenery.

Further Details:

There are a huge number of restaurants in Dubrovnik to cater for just about every taste and of course with varying prices. Or you can buy your groceries at one of the local supermarkets, dairies or local daily markets either in the old town or near the new port in Dubrovnik.

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: This luxury accommodation in its peaceful location is perfect for one to three couples or a family of six wanting to be close to the wonderful attractions of the Old Town Dubrovnik but just a little removed for your relaxation. It was totally renovated in 2007 and fitted with top quality appliances and furnishings to make your stay luxurious and comfortable. Enjoy your Croatian holiday the Villa Antipodes way. We are from New Zealand and fell in love with Dubrovnik while on holiday there. We found this villa and saw the possibilities and the rest is history! Outside: There are three courtyards in this villa - one on each level. The entrance courtyard is great for drying clothes and storing shoes, children's beach toys etc. The main level courtyard is ideal for entertaining or taking time out for a good read. The stone table, and seating with additional chairs make for flexibility of guest numbers. The barbecue means you can cook while talking with your family or guests. The patio off the main bedroom on the 3rd floor is an added bonus for those lucky enough to get the main bedroom. The perfect spot for a quiet breakfast for two! The views out over the ancient walls and port of the Old Town and the mysterious island of Lokrum are just gorgeous! Utility Room: The laundry on the 2nd floor is equipped with washing machine, dryer, safe deposit box, vacuum cleaner, iron and board, and other cleaning items. This room also has the third toilet The downstairs courtyard (entrance level) has a covered clothes line. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: All beds are equipped with beautiful, high quality Egyptian cotton sheets and the bathrooms with luxurious towels all included in the rental fee. Additional sheets and towels are available for long stays. Additional cleaning can be arranged as required.
