Fabulous Waterside Old CaptainsHouse

Overview

Property

Updated: 19-May-2015
Holiday House in Dobrota, Nr. Kotor, Montenegro - 5 Meters from the Sea and 8 Minutes to Kotor

This fabulous waterfront 2 bedroom property, ground floor of old stone house has been completely renovated & refurbished to the highest western standards. It is only 5 meters from the glistening Adriatic sea & has it's own punta for a boat. It is only a beautiful 8 min walk along the bay, past the boats and yachts to the amazing historical old town of Kotor, and you will immediately see why it is a UNESCO world heritage site. The property features old stone throughout. There is a fantastic large gated sun terrace, partially shaded by a kiwi vine in the day and fully lit at night for those family evening meals, get togethers and of course entertaining friends. Listen to the enchanting sound of the sea as you barbecue. Apartment purchased by us for our young family, because of the location, the people and the pace of life. Originally we were only considering purchasing in Montenegro purely for investment, but when we saw this, we immediately fell in love. Trust us, seeing is believing!

Just wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location, nothing nicer than an earlier morning cuppa on the Punta with just a fisherman for company. Such a perfect, restful area. lovely restaurant 50yrds who were happy to serve us coffees on the terrace of the Captains house. Excellent value food there and very large portions.Very friendly neighbours who even if they didn't speak English wanted to converse and generously share water melon with us whilst we were bathing from the Punta. 15 mins saunter along the flat promenade to Kotor Old town. Easy to drive around Montenegro and so Much to see. Beautiful views all round.

The house is far enough form hustle bustle to be quiet and unspoilt but close enough to not need a car if you don't want one as walking distance to shops and restaurants. The house is on one level, apart from two small steps up into kitchen, so ideal with my elderly parents with some mobility issues. Terrace under the kiwi vines for shade, perfect for meals with view of the Bay.

Also something to take into account is that this side of the Bay gets the sun all day so the Captains house benefits from the sun on the terrace and Punta until the evening which we noted the other side does not. All in all a fab location, if you want water parks, English bars, fast food it's not for you. Go and enjoy the people, views , swimming in crystal clear waters and peaceful drinks on your Punta. Kotor Old Town buzzes at night but in an enjoyable way, no undesirables there!!!! We shall be returning to the Captains House as soon as we can.

Great apartment in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

After much deliveration as to whether we should choose a modern apartment with a pool, or this lovely Captains house on the waterfront for our family (me, my husband , 2 teenage daughters & my mother) holiday, we opted for the latter. We were not disappointed! The apartment is part of the ground floor of a lovely old stone built house, only meters from the waterfront on Kotor Bay. The house is beautifully renovated with a new bathroom and was spotlessly clean. It even had air conditionning in the bedrooms which was much appreciated as Montenegro was having a mini heatwave while we were there!

The location was excellent. It was close enough to Kotor to be able to walk the 10 minutes along the renovated waterfront and past lovely restaurants to reach the beautiful old town, but far enough away not to be disturbed by any noise. There is a good restaurant a few doors down the road and an exteremely well stocked supermarket a couple of minutes walk away which had everything we needed for our stay. There was a ittle stoney beach a couple of hundred metres along the road, but we were also able to swim from the punta in front of the house and take sunloungers there to relax and take in the stunning views.

There were more than enough things to do to keep us all occupied in htat part of Montenegro. We explored the old town and climbed the walls, visited Perast and went up to the National park behind Kotor and the girls and I went on a trip on Monty B, a yacht that does trips in the bay, alongside relaxing and enjoying the restaurants and cafes on the waterfront. My husband dislocated his collar bone 10 days before we arrived and I was unable to hire an automatic car so was not keen to drive; I needn't have worried. The taxis were very cheap and efficient, arriving within minutes of us calling, and we found a driver who spoke good English so he gave us his number and took us on a 4 hour tour of the National Park which was thoroughly enjoyable.

All in all a fantastic holiday, I would definitley return to the Old Captains House again and Montenegro is stunning! Thank you.
