About Piers Jenkins

We are a Welsh couple who have always had the travel bug, but unfortunatly both work full time !!. I am an Independent Financial Adviser , and my fiance , Jayne is a doctor. We first visited Montenegro in 2006, and fell in love with the place. A year later , I found myself with a mortgage , but a beautiful view. Since then we have been back over a dozen times We are captivated by Montenegro's beauty , along with the friendly people here. I am a bit biased , as the 3rd time we visited back in 2007 , we overturned the hire car in Herceg Novi , and a man ran out of his house , called 2 friends over . Somehow , they managed to put the car back on 4 wheels !!. Not a word to Economy car rentals please !.

Piers Jenkins purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Piers Jenkins chose Montenegro

We are very lucky in owning the apartment , as it was the first batch of apartments to be built in Muo (so the best view) , which is a very quiet village with a few bars , and lots of room to swim. But then just a 2 minute drive , or a 15 minute walk (my preference) , you have a bustling city like Kotor which has all the history you can imagine , along with lots of shops , resteraunts, and good night life if you want it (I'm too old for that !!).

What makes this apartment unique

Kotor-Muo apartments only has 18 units , and it never feels busy. But it is always nice to say hello to your neighbours hanging over the balcony , or sunbathing by the pool. The company that looks after the complex are excellent as well , and there is a caretaker on site who speaks English.

The busier Kotor-Vista complex is only about 100 yards further up the hill , where there are 2 more swimming pools, a jacuuzi , and internet access by the pool : that's decadent !!.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Hi Piers, We had an absolutely fantastic holiday thank you- the apartment is in such a beatiful spot, the view was incredible. The apartment was fantastic , lots of space & very very clean. We hopefully left it in the same way. The balcony was a great size for the 4 of us and the others said the sofa bed was really comfy. The instructions for the oven were helpful along with the washing machine. The pool was great; never too busy and very friendly people about. We spent a lot of time swimming in the fjord, which was suprisingly warm ; bliss ! We will definetly recommend the apartment to friends and family - my sister is already talking about when she can come back." Annie & Kev. August 2009



"I would just like to say that we had a fabulous time in the apartment. It was lovely,& in such a great position overlooking the bay. We probably have more photos of the bay from your balcony to fill a book. We will definetly stay in the not too distant future " Peter & Tricia , October 2010

lovely

  • 5 of 5

we had a great time in Kotor, the apartment has everything you could need, and the view from the balcony is amazing. Kotor is a 15 mins (ish) walk from the apartment, beware the road for the first part of the journey has no pavements though, it's a bit hairy at first but you soon get used to it after a couple of days! Booking with Piers was so easy, he is very informative and even arranged a taxi to pick us up from the airport. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend!

Stunning

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment with everything you need and more. Views were just spectacular and we never tired of just looking out. Always something to watch. Very peaceful. Enjoyed swimming a few times in the fjord which was just lovely. Had a great speedboat trip to Marmula; swam in the blue cave (the water really is so blue); submarine base; Perast; and Lady of the Rock. The trip up the fortress in the old town was definitely worth it for the amazing views at the top.

Was lovely being on the quiet side of the fjord and it was only a 20 minute flat walk into the old town. Might be worth having a torch for the walk along the first part in the dark as no pavement and narrow road for cars both ways.

Local corner shop only 5 minutes away for essentials and cheap.

Great variety of restaurants all round.

Weather was much better than at first expected for sept /oct - don't look at long range forecast before you go if slightly out of season!

All in all an excellent holiday in a lovely, comfortable apartment. Would definitely recommend.

Owner's Response: Hi Linda and Ian, I'm so glad you had such a great time, and another guest that has done more than me !!. We still haven't got to the Blue cave. That's a must in 2018 !. Please stay again in the years to come. Kind regards, Piers

Beautiful views in a great location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a few days as part of touring Croatia and Montenegro.

The apartment was clean and comfortable with everything we needed. We had issues with the air con unit but Piers sorted that as quickly as he could.

The location was perfect, around a 15 minute walk to the centre and a supermarket, we used a car to explore surrounding areas also... and that view is just stunning!!!

Highly recommended and Piers was brilliant from beginning to end. Thank you

Lovely apartment with great view of the bay

  • 5 of 5

A lovely apartment with a great terrace to take in the stunning views.

Piers was extremely helpful with info about the apartment, restaurants and travelling around Kotor bay and the surrounding areas.

This is a great base, we used the bus service and Red taxis - they were reliable and cheap and we emailed them to make bookings! It's expensive to use your mobile out here, Piers gave a great tip about buying a local SIM card! Apartment does have wifi too.

The apartment is spacious, clean and very comfortable. It's a 10 - 15 minute walk into Kotor and the Old Town (be careful walking on the road, the driving is quite erratic!). Lots of places to eat here and the Old Town is beautiful.

Sunbathed on the jetties and enjoyed swimming in the fjord as well as using the shared pool which is mainly empty during the afternoon.

Visited Perast (the local bus back was one Euro!!), Sveti Stefan, Tivat and took a 5 hour boat trip - sights and stops included Mamula (former prison island), Lady of the Rock, Dobrech beach (only accessible by boat) and the old Russian submarine bases.

We had a great time and would definitely return in the future - thanks again Piers.

A clean and spacious apartment with the most beautiful of views.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The view from the balcony of wide-reaching views of the bay of Kotor was stunning. We spent a lot of time lazing on the balcony. We enjoyed sunny mornings and balmy evenings, watching the beautiful bay and mountains change in the sunlight through to twinkling lights at dusk and night. When we could tear ourselves away we walked into characterful Kotor, or drove to the nearby villages around the bay, or further to Lovcen and Lake Skadar. The apartment is spacious and clean and has all you need for a comfortable and quiet stay. The owner, Piers, was very helpful with directions and restaurant tips.
