About the property

House in Old Town Dubrovnik, Dalmatian Coast - Beautifully Restored 400-year Old House with Stunning Views Over the Adriatic Sea from the Terrace

Longlook House is a stylish and luxurious 400-year old house located inside the walls of the Old Town in Dubrovnik and has a terrace with a stunning view over the Adriatic sea, the island of Lokrum, the city walls and the Srd mountain.

It has been restored and finished to high specifications including air-conditioning, Wi-Fi, LED HD TV and beautiful Brac stone radiators (for winter). It retains many of the original features such as exposed stone walls and wooden beams.

The house is located in a quiet location about 5-8 minutes walking distance from two of the entrances to the Old Town, Pile Gate or Ploce Gate, passing the famous street, Stradun, which is a 2 minute stroll from the house.

It is also only a few steps from a small gate in the old city wall leading out though to Buza II ('cold drinks' famous bar on the cliffs). There you can swim off the rocks in the crystal clear, turquoise water or enjoy a drink with breath taking views over the Adriatic and amazing sunsets. The nearest beach (Banje Beach) is located an 8 minute walk from the house, just outside Old Town.

Beautiful apartment in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

It's amazing how close you can be to the great sights of Dubrovnik and yet feel totally secluded. The interior of the apartment is as good as it looks in the photos and the view is actually better than the photos show. Our favorite activity (other than sitting on the terrace with snacks, coffee or wine) was going to Buza for an early morning swim before anyone else was there. It is a 3 minute walk and you feel like you have Dubrovnik and the Adriatic all to yourself. Definitely staying here on our next visit!

Stunning Longlook House and stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Dubrovnik and thoroughly enjoyed the house. Great location and stunning views from the Terrace of the sea, the wall and Lokrum island - very rare in the old town.

The house is very well furnished and lovely bathrooms and very comfortable for three or four people. Would recommend arranging airport transfer through Azra as we would never have found the house alone.

Would be great to have just a few supplies in as we arrived very late - (coffee, milk and maybe a loaf of bread and butter), otherwise the house is really well equipped - nice extras for use DVDs, umbrellas, guidebooks, reading books, adapter plug.

Three countries tour with Senad was really interesting and a great things to do and a day on Lokrum is a must. Taj Mahal was our favourite restaurant and the day pass was a great way to see the museums. We started this at 2.00pm one day and ran through to 2.00pm the next day - which meant we weren't quite so rushed on one day and could have a leisurely walk on the wall in the evening.

We have already recommend to friends and family and would certainly return.

Owner's Response: Dear Jacqueline, Thank you for taking the time to review Longlook House. We are always so pleased to hear about the enjoyment that the terrace, stunning sea view and the location in the Old Town of Dubrovnik, brings. Much planning and thought continuously goes into ensuring that our house is stylishly furnished, comfortable and clean. In our view, the little extras you mentioned form an important part of this. Sounds like you had an great time with excursions, museums and tours. We agree that Lokrum Island is magical. There is so much to see and do and many excellent restaurants/cafes to enjoy too in between! Thank you very much for staying at Longlook House and indeed recommending our property to friends and family. We will be delighted to welcome you back. Best wishes Ian Wilkinson

Guestbook comments from the owner

House exceeded our expectations! PC

Delightful property. Very much enjoyed sitting out on the terrace with the fantastic view. BS

Longlook House has been a perfect base to explore the city and beyond. JN

The restoration is absolutely perfect. The location is great too because living within the city walls makes you feel privileged and we felt we were in the real Dubrovnik. JJ
