Merbau is a stylish apartment, in a newly-built urban villa, located a short walk away from the famous Stari Grad (Old Town), boasting gorgeous views across Dubrovnik and the Adriatic. All the front rooms in the apartment lead to the large balcony which runs the length of the flat giving visitors a panoramic view of the city from the fortress of Lovrjenac to Lapad bay and the islands beyond. The outdoor dining area is shaded and is perfect for watching the sun set over the stunning Adriatic Islands to the west of Dubrovnik.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Gordana,



Just wanted to thank you for a great week in your apartment in Dubrovnik.

The flat was lovely and well equipped – we particularly appreciated the air conditioning after a hot walk up from town!

Lots to do and Ivana was very helpful, giving us good recommendations and taxi bookings etc.



Kind regards



Kay and Charlie

Stunning views of a beautiful city

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was lovely and immaculate. We very much appreciated the care given by the manager on site and the contact beforehand. The sunsets were magnificent off the terrace and made it difficult to be anywhere else during that time! We appreciated the quiet distance from the bustling old town. Lots of steps but found it easy to take the bus back up on days we didn't want to walk. The only negative is crossing a very busy street from the bus stop although a cab would be able to deliver you to the apartment door. I highly recommend it as a place to stay in Dubrovnik. We would definitely rent it again.

Top quality apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family loved this apartment. It was very homely and we loved the personal touches - tea bags, washing tablets, water and milk etc. Everything in the apartment was of excellent quality and it was cool even thought the temperature outside was 40 degrees. The view is amazing but that is because the apartment is high up. There are lots of steps so you need to be fit to stay here or use taxis. I would definitely recommend this apartment and would stay here again if we return to Dubrovnik.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

As a family of four, (two teenagers) we have stayed in many "online" booking apartments. I would give this a two thumbs up for location and because the online pictures were accurate. We stayed just for two nights and I'm not sure if it would have been big enough for a week's stay for four people. It's a short 10min bus ride to and from Dubrovnik and the bus stop is 1min away. (make sure you get an explanation on the bus routes both to and from. We took the wrong bus out of Dubrovnik and it took an hour to get back) Gordana and Zeljko were easily reachable and always returned emails and texts which gave us a peace of mind. We stayed here towards the end of June and the AC was adequate in the main area but i'm not sure how it would be in the bedrooms if we were there in August. They did provide a fan but it wasn't strong enough in my opinion. But then again, we are from the USA and are guilty of liking it cold. The WiFi was fine as well as the overall cleanliness. One note to all landlords though is to clean the coffee pots and electric water pots. They are typically overlooked and require cleaning and it was the case here as well. We stayed here as the start to our 2 week Croatia trip and ended back in Dubrovnik 2 weeks later. At the end of our trip we stayed in the heart of Old Town which was also very nice. Again, we were here before the heat and main tourist season. I'm told that the festivals go on all night long in Old Town starting end of July so perhaps it would have been too noisy. Make sure you take the cable car up for dinner or just drinks. It was well worth it! Bottom line... I would stay here again.

Beautiful property and stunning views

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed here in September. We found the apartment to be very spacious and clean. The beds were very comfortable with quality linen. We loved sitting on the balcony taking in the wonderful views, and always took our breakfast in the covered area of the terrace. However, if you want to have a great view, you have to climb up and down almost 400 stairs to the Old Town. There is a bus close by but we chose to keep fit by using the steps, although we always got a taxi back in the evening.

Correspondence with Gordana was always prompt, polite, informative and extremely helpful. Zeljko, who manages the property, lives downstairs and was an absolute delight to deal with!

If returning to Dubrovnik in the near future (which I would love to do) I would definitely stay at this apartment, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to my family and friends.

Beautiful Views, Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

This fantastically appointed apartment is a charming and picturesque 15 minute walk down to the Old City of Dubrovnik. The apartment is exceptionally spacious and wonderfully maintained. It features a large dining room, living area with television, excellent wifi even on the balcony, two large bedrooms, 2 clean and modern bathrooms (one with an excellent shower) a sofa bed and an extra cot. We were only 4 but it could easily have slept 7. There are also all the mod cons of fridge, stove, dishwasher and laundry.

The best part about the apartment is the absolutely HUGE balcony with stunning views of the Adriatic. There is a dining set on the balcony, & we ate all our meals outside, enjoying a beautiful breeze.

I spent hours on the terrace watching ships sail in and out of the harbour, and the sunsets were breathtaking.

The management of the property is fantastic and very quick to respond to emails/calls & thoroughly honest in all their dealings. Zeljko, who manages the property and lives right downstairs, is wonderfully helpful with any tourism/directions/apartment and questions and Gordana and Sean, as the property owners, are delightful.

The walk back up from the Old City requires you to climb a lot of stairs--which was great for us because we needed the exercise and it really allowed us to glimpse the whole city from all these different, truly lovely viewpoints--and we also interacted much more with local residents as we climbed. It may be strenuous for the elderly or disabled, but you can catch a taxi right to the top from just outside Pile Gate for $15-$20. We never took a taxi because we found the climb exhilarating (and this way we could eat a lot more!) Many of the stairs are wide and flat, and there are periodic breaks, so it's easily manageable.

There are 2 markets, a pizza place, a bus stop, car rental and tourism office about 7 minutes down the stairs. The upstairs neighbours have an adorable kitten named Skaretz whom you must meet!

Some have complained about construction noise, but we found it absolutely minimal and never at a time when we wanted to sit outside. All the main construction is done, and it should be noted that all around the city there are small projects, so a little noise is unavoidable no matter where you stay.

I would stay here again in a heartbeat and loved the people, the city and this gorgeous apartment most of all!

Car: not necessary

Merbau is located above the old town (Stari Grad) of Dubrovnik just far away enough from the walled old section to be quiet but still within easy walking distance along some wonderful old stone streets that Dubrovnik is famous for.
