The Dubrovnik Riviera/Islands region
Dubrovnik with its Riviera represents unique combination of perfectly preserved historical site surrounded by south Dalmatian coastal area of outstanding natural beauty.
The city of Dubrovnik has been listed at UNESCO’s World Heritage list in 1979.
Today Dubrovnik with its surrounding area stands out as the most prominent tourist destination on Croatian Adriatic coast. Its rich cultural heritage attracts large number of tourists who come to admire this ‘pearl of Adriatic’.
The city itself represents the former centre of once famous Dubrovnik Republic, the historical phenomenon in its own right. Located in between the Ottoman Empire and the Republic of Venice, Dubrovnik famously managed to preserve its independence and liberty while standing throughout centuries as a significant maritime republic of the Mediterranean Sea. Thus the unique feature of today’s Dubrovnik is its perfectly preserved cultural heritage which stems from its glorious past.
Historical centre of Dubrovnik Riviera is a very vibrant and lively place. Museums, churches, 1436 protected historical buildings, galleries, art festivals and open air classical music concerts invites visitors from all over the world.
Open air restaurants, night bars and popular culture events offers night time entertainment for young people and seniors alike.
Apart from the walled city of Dubrovnik and its attractive lively atmosphere the surrounding coastal region offers a wealth of pristine Dalmatian nature. Crystal blue sea and a number of nearby islands forming the Elaphites Archipelago with its many beaches make for an ideal summer destination.
Island of Lokrum provides an opportunity for spending a day in the nature reserve of outstanding beauty just 20 min. away from the old city’s port.
One of Croatia’s famous national parks - ‘Mljet’ can be reached in a relatively short time by boat.
Nearby Arboretum ‘Trsteno’, being one of the oldest botanical parks in this part of the world is very impressive and certainly a one of the ‘must visit’ destinations.
‘Snjeznica’ mountain (1234 m) invites visitors to its breath taking views offering an opportunity to experience the whole of Southern Dalmatia ‘on the palm of your hand’.
The part of the town in which this property is situated is very well known and loved by locals and visitors alike both for its wealth of historical monuments and attractions and for the fact that it remains a genuine “lived-in” area of the city. Furthermore, the convenience of this area to the main entry-points to the Old Town combined with its handy access to the main boulevard- Stradun makes this area a strategic point for those who wish to experience an authentic taste of what life in Dubrovnik really is in the heart of this city.
The house itself gives onto the Prijeko Street much frequented by visitors and young people particularly thanks to its numerous Cafés, bars and open-air restaurants and its genuine vitality.
The area is also very well served in terms of facilities; Chemists, Banks, Post Office, Supermarkets and specialist shops.
From the cultural point of view one is very close to the Sponza and Rector’s Palace, Cathedral and many other landmarks within a brief walking distance.
Nearby Old Port offers an easy to access transfer to surrounding islands providing a chance to enjoy a day in the sun or in the shade of pine trees at numerous beaches.

"Excellent position in the heart of the old City"
A restored apartment in an 800 year old house with one double and two single beds in two upper rooms and a lounge and kitchen in the main floor. Very close to all in the old city sights and 10 minute walk from the city gate. Very close to excellent restaurants in particular Moby Dicks seafood with is right outside the front door, the owner mr 'H' is very hospitable and the staff are all good speaking multiple languages.. Good double glazing ensures at night street noise is at a minimum. Fast wifi a bonus and a nice CD player. washing machine good. Bathroom a bit dated, but tons of hot water.for a real feel of the old city this is an excellent base to which to explore for two weeks, with travel shops nearby and car rental at the city gate for day trips.

"Quaint apartment in the heart of Dubrovnik's old town"
Location of the apartment is excellent, right in the heart of Dubrovnik's old town. Spacious accommodation over two floors. Open your windows and hear the bustle of everyday life below you. Owner helpful on booking, and Katarina very welcoming on arrival with plenty of information about Dubrovnik and what to do. The only negatives were beds top to tail in second bedroom, a bit cosy to say the least! The keys a bit temperamental- need coaxing to work properly.
Overall a great apartment, highly recommended.

"The apartment was clean, well equipped and in a superb location."
The apartment was as expected from the photographs, very well equipped and had extremely comfortable beds. It was in a wonderful location with a restaurant and bakery just outside the door and the stradum just one flight of stairs down. The double glazing was very effective so any noise from the restaurant did not bother us at all. We felt very safe there and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

"Wonderful base in Old Town"
We went with another couple, all aged around 60. The location was perfect and it was really peaceful, even when the bar below was absolutely packed! With the air-conditioning it was also a welcome cool place to return to after or between trips. Everywhere in the Old Town was within 10 minutes walk so we didn't waste any time getting anywhere. The owner was very helpful with my queries about how best to get from the airport and replied to emails very promptly.

"A fanstastic apartment"
A real gem.
This report is long overdue. We had initially booked another apartment in Dubrovnik. As a deposit was not required, I am not sure if the apartment owner thought we were dodgy and let the apartment and the email informing us of this was rather curt! Anyway, I did not let this get in the way so I searched and searched and sent out numerous emails and I found this beautiful apartment (every cloud has a silver lining). We stayed in this apartment in early July and really enjoyed it. It was spacious, well appointed, comfortable, and included free wifi. The location was also excellent. The apartment is in the heart of the Stradum,(one street behind) and just 1 minute stroll away from the heartstoppingly beautiful Stradum (and also only a 5 minute walk to Ploce Gate.
The apartment itself is beautifully decorated. It was a real dream of an apartment, packed full of beautiful furniture! I never expected to find a combination of antiques and up-to-the-minute facilities. All in all, we had an unforgettable stay and would love to come back! The apartment is on two levels and the first floor consisted of a huge kitchen with a cooker (a rare commodity) and there was also table and chairs with loads of storage cupboards, utensils, cutlery and crockery. The lounge was also huge with antique furniture and a television. On the second floor there were two bedrooms and a bathroom with a washing machine. The apartment also had wifi.
There are dozens of places to eat and drink nearby and the Moby Dick restaurant is just in front of the apartment. Always crowded and the staff were always cheerful but we did not manage to eat there.
There are huge windows in the lounge and kitchen and clothes drying facilities were great on the window ledges. While some have commented about the bar in close proximity, that did not bother us. Our daughters heard the noise from their room but we didn't as we were too exhausted from the day's activities of swimming, walking and touring. In my opinion it adds to the atmosphere.
The owner Matika lives in the capital but there is a representative Katarina who did a great job in greeting us, informing us of various activities and places of interest and recommended some restaurants. The owner was very kind, quick with his responses. If I ever did return to Dubrovnik, I would stay there again.

"Fantastic location, great friendly service - beautiful city"
I stumbled across this apartment whilst trying to find somewhere to stay for four nights. No sooner had I sent the query off that Matija (the owner) responded quickly. Throughout the lead up to the vacation and during, Matija speedily responded to emails and was able to even provide a taxi service to and from the airport (probably cheaper than from the airport itself). The apartment was extremely clean and spacious. We were met by our friendly host Katarina who told us where to visit etc. in case we were not sure. The apartment really is in a fantastic location, you could not wish for better. Having wi-fi really was exceptional. The air conditioning is great. We felt that it was good value for money and if Matija is reading this, I just want to say many thanks for answering all my questions via email and always being contactable. When I visit Dubrovnik again, I'll be hoping that your apartment is free.

"Simply wonderful place to stay in Dubrovnik!"
We arrived a little later than planned to this beautiful city, I was concerned given the hour how this would affect access to our apartment as it was gone t10pm , but we (husband and in-laws) were warmly received by Katarina despite the late hour! We also spoke with the owner who couldn't have been more helpful in guiding us to the property, which is in a beautiful location, dead central to beaches and shops alike.
The apartment is just lovely, mum & dad loved especially the beautiful ornate furnishings and we all loved the airconditioning in the summer heat of Dubrovnik!! Realy comfortable apartment, perfect location and the owner and manager were just great, we felt so welcomed and comfortable, we didn't want to leave. We will definitely be back!
A wonderful holiday!
