Beautiful Sea Views

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to relax and spend time on the beach whilst also finding time to sip a nice cool refreshing drink on the balcony this is the ideal location.

The apartment is on the first floor and had everything we needed it’s up high overlooking the bay and Cavtat. Overall the apartment was clean/fresh and comfortable and perfect for self-catering.

We spent a bit of time on the balcony which is off the main bedroom, it was so nice to wake up in the morning and look out at the bay and Cavtat. The beach is about a 5 min walk from the apartment and we used this a number of times.

You'll find a small supermarket nearby that had everything we needed. Again locally in Cavtat you’ll find a wonderful choice of restaurants to suit all prices.

It's a short trip into Dubrovnik with its picturesque stone walls and lots of cafes and ice cream of course.

We really enjoyed our stay and can’t wait for the next trip I would highly recommend as it was excellent value for money.

Fantastic views and good location for nice evening walk to Cavtat along the sea front

  • 4 of 5

Apartment was clean and roomy. Road to apartment is very steep and needs confidence to encounter the incline especially if wet.

Only had two rings on a four ring hob working and no instructions to use the oven also no details left how to access WiFi.

Balcony was very impressive with great views. Support from liljana in flat below was invaluable and she was very friendly.

Owner's Response: thank you very much for taking the time out to write a review of our property. Feedback from guests is invaluable. I'm delighted that you enjoyed your time in Cavtat! All of the elevated properties in the area enjoy spectacular views. However, most of these properties are accessed by steep inclines. I have added details of an alternative access route to our apartment in the property brochure, this routes takes you to the apartment via a stepped path rather than the steep main road. The apartment brochure states that a 2 ring electric hob is available. This is sufficient for most holidaymakers. There is also a microwave, kettle and toaster. I have included instructions on how to operate the oven in the apartment manual. Our croatia rep is always contactable should any of our guests have any questions or queries re the apartment or anything else they may need. She will be delighted with your review!

Sea views to die for!!

  • 4 of 5

Myself and my wife and 3 young kids had a wonderful holiday in Cavtat last May. It was an unusually hassle free journey (with 3 kids!) and only made better by the fact that we were greeted at Dubrovnik airport by Ljiljana and brought to the apartment which was only a 15 minute car journey.

The apartment had everything we needed. It was basic and clean and comfortable. The kids loved the bunk beds and swapped around most nights! The view from the balcony is stunning and breathtaking, we enjoyed having our breakfasts taking in the fabulous Adriatic views.

We spent most days at the beach, it is so close, only a 5 minute walk. There was an array of water activities to do, sea kayaking, canoeing, snorkelling, but mostly we hired out the pedal boats which was great fun. We took a boat trip to Dubrovnik and walked around the walls, it is such a beautiful city and has plenty of nice cafes for the well needed pit stops!

There are two hotels close by (5 minutes walk), The Albatross & Epidaurus. The Albatross do a lovely reasonably price buffet in the evening which was great for all the family (especially picky eaters!) Cavtat is quiet and tranquil and has lots of lovely restaurants to choose from, all of which are very child friendly. The walk into Cavtat took about 20 mins, some evenings after our meal, if we didn't feel like the walk back we would get the bus, which dropped us right behind the apartment.

Ljiljana lives on site and was very helpful in the first day or two when we were getting our bearings. There's a big supermarket close by which was very handy to stock up on basic provisions (mostly baguettes and vino!).

All in all we had a great holiday, kids loved it and still talk about it. We would highly recommend it.

Superb Location and Views

  • 4 of 5

This apartment sits up high overlooking the bay and Cavtat where you can sit and enjoy a glass or two and watch the yachts and ferries come and go. The apartment is located at first floor level with a balcony off the main bedroom. It was lovely and clean and well kitted out for self catering. BBQ facility on site.

The location is brilliant just a short walk from the beach and the walk along the sea into the town is awesome. The water is wonderful and there are plenty of water activities such as paddle boats etc to entertain. Definitely recommend hiring a motor boat to explore the fantastic coastline.

The apartment is within easy walking distance to a small supermarket and a five min walk from the bus route to and from Dubrovnik which is well worth a visit.

Cavtat itself offers an array of restaurants with plenty of choice for all price points. A trip to one of the many ice cream shops was the daily highlight for my kids. Their favorite was the one close to the bus terminus.

The apartment is only a short commute from the airport so you will be sitting enjoying the view very soon after touch down. Cavtat is definitely worth a visit I can't wait to return. Catherine

We spent a wonderful 2 weeks in cavtat, relaxing on the balcony, at the beach, walking the beautiful pathway into the village and we took a few trips into Dubrovnik to a concert and to the museum. the beauty about this apartment was its excellent location. only a 5 minute trip from the airport. We were collected by liljana and even stopped off a the supermarket on the way. Everything was within walking distance. The busses run regularly and on time! for trips to Dubrovnik and if you don't fancy the 15 minute walk to the village. the beach and hotel and restaurant facilities are only a short stroll away. the evening sunsets and views of Dubrovnik across the bay were simply spectacular. While the apartment is not super modern, it had everything we needed. It was excellent value for money!
