Fabulous location overlooking the beautiful bay.

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous location overlooking the beautiful bay. The villa is positioned set away up on the hill but not to far from everything. It has everything you need for an enjoyable stay. The hosts Rodger and Liz are lovely, nothing to much trouble. They are very helpful with recommendations too. Would really recommend this villa for a big family or hoe a couple of families holidaying together.

Will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your very positive review. Yes, Boka Vista is ideal for an extended or 2 family holiday who want to be well located in this stunning bit of beautiful Montenegro close to but not in the middle of all the action.

Modern and spacious villa in a spectacular setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a very memorable stay at this lovely villa in the mountains overlooking Tivat. As a family with young children, the beautiful swimming pool and extensive grounds (complete with wild tortoises!) were particularly welcomed.

The villa is simply but comprehensively furnished with all modern amenities and the views from the terrace, particularly as the sun sets, are breathtaking.

The location, particularly if you're flying to Tivat, couldn't be better with the beautiful town of Kotor close by and other attractions such as Perast and the Lovcen National Park within easy reach.

We plan to return again soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review. We are genuinely delighted when guests enjoy their stay in our villa. Easyjet flights from Gatwick and Manchester to Tivat have made the Boka even more accessible. We look forward to welcoming you all back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are pleased you enjoyed the beautiful Lovcen National Park ropes/zip wire course. This year, horse riding, paint balling and quad bikes have been introduced making it a great day out in the cool mountain air.

Lovely villa with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

The villa was good value, very clean and spacious. There is a great swimming pool, amazing views across the bay and it is easy to get to lots of local sights. The owners are very friendly and willing to help recommend local places. We would particularly recommend visting Kotor, and the adventure park in Lovcen national park if you have kids.

Perfect peaceful large villa with spectacular views, super facilities include a swimming pool.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely peaceful secluded villa in the hills overlooking Kotor Bay with stunning views and spectacular sunsets. Perfect for a large family holiday, which included 2 grannies and a teenager! Thank you for creating a little haven away from it all for us to share and for all your recommendations and helpful tips as to what to do and where to go. There was something for everyone just a short drive away: the old historical walled town of Kotor with its marina, cruisers, narrow streets, churches, numerous restaurants, gift shops; picturesque sleepy Perast and boat trips to the Lady of the Rocks ( where we were lucky enough to see a dolphin); Porto Montenegro in Tivat, superclean luxurious yachts, designer shops, expensive restaurants ( Pizza place on the corner was heaving and so worth every cent!); so many small authentic beaches, ( stoney so shoes were a must) still largely untouched or spoilt, Almara beach club Lustica was loved by all, as was Tivat action beach with its challenging wake boarding facilities @ euro 15 for an hour; the exclusive Sveti Stefan island and beaches were worth the longer than usual drive. 10 days was just not long enough to explore and enjoy. The narrow access road to the villa took some getting used to and needed careful manoeuvring but once it is finished, this is a perfect holiday location.
