Silvia's Gem with a lovely view

Overview

Property

Updated: 17-Nov-2016
Apartment in Dubrovnik, Dalmatian Coast, Croatia - Best Apartment Outside The Old Town

As peaceful as it gets. Just 10 minute walk (3 bus stops) from the Old town. Best choice if you don't want to be bothered by crowds of people in the Old town after a long day of swimming and sight seeing. Free WI-FI! 50 meters away from grocery store, bakery, restaurant, pizza place, bus stop and 100 meters from the harbour from where the boat departs to Dubrovnik Riviera islands (Kolocep, Mljet, Lopud, Sipan).

This is a 50m2 apartment with two rooms to sleep in, whereas one is a regular bedroom and the other is a living room with a sofa bed that turns into bed.

A Great Week in Dubrovnik

  • 5 of 5

We spent seven really wonderful days in Sylvia's apartment in Dubrovnik. The town was great to explore; crowded of course with the cruise liners nearly every day, but a very special historical city. We very much enjoyed learning more about the history of Croatia and the Balkans. There are three museums dedicated to the recent wars there. All are harrowing but immensely informative - worth the emotion.

The apartment was exactly as promised and with the owners being discretely next door we were never at a loss for anything. Their generosity and hospitality was wonderful and very touching.

Having the view over the harbour and watching the boats coming and going was a perfect way to end the day (with a glass of wine). As others have noted, there is all you need in terms of supermarkets very close. The daily market at the bottom of the steps is superb for fruit and vegetables.(I did buy some small fish and tried to cook them. I made the mistake of not de-scaling them first. Error.)

Our thanks to Sylvia and her husband for a very special holiday.

Great apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

Silvia & Livic made us feel very welcome to this clean and comfortable apartment. The location is ideal for sightseeing and very quiet with some great restaurants and bars, reasonably priced and good food.

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

A clean spacious well equipped apartment with fantastic views.

Well placed for the harbour and bus routes. Local food market is a must.

Owners very welcoming.

We found the Dubrovnik Tourist card good value.

The only downside is the number of steps there are to get anywhere. Although the number 8 bus picks you up at the bottom of the road, on the return journey it drops you off at the harbour.

Another very small point is that English TV and newspapers are difficult to get.

Would recommend to anyone, apart from people with mobility problems.

Lovely apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in this lovely apartment, which was as described here in Owners Direct. The apartment was well equipped, it was very clean and of high standard in every way. A very modern apartment.

Our hosts were very welcoming. They were also easily reached incase there was any concerns. Our hosts collected us from the airport and also drove us back on departure, for a very good price when you compare the local taxi company charges.

You have all you need next door to the apartment: a bakery and a small grocery shop. Everything is easily accessed from the apartment. A number of busses run from the harbour to the old town as well as to Lapad, if you fancy going to the beach. We enjoyed staying away from all the tourists in a more locally inhabited neigbourhood.

The apartment is probably not the best if you're travelling with small children as there is a lot of steps leading up to the apartment from the harbour, over 200 we counted. Also if you're more into going to the beach, than exploring the city, we would recommend staying in Lapad. There are no beaches walking distance from the apartment. A transport is needed.

For us the apartment was great as we spent time exploring the city as well as spent a few days at different beaches. I would recommend it without hesitation.

Thank you very much to our hosts, we had a great holiday!

Wonderful apartment in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This lovely spacious, well equipped and clean apartment is perfectly located for a holiday in Dubrovnik. The views overlooking the harbour are stunning during the day and the night, we enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the boats come and go. We caught the ferry from the harbour to Lopud several times to enjoy the beautiful Sunj beach, take a taxi buggy as its a long and hilly walk in the sun! We also drove up to Prapratno (just over an hours drive) and took the car over on the ferry to the island of Mljet which has a beautiful National Park with two huge inland salt water lakes perfect for swimming. Dubrovnik Old Town is easily reached by number 8 bus just down the road. Try the local bakery, pizzeria and shop, the main supermarket is in the harbour. The harbour market is wonderful for fresh local produce and we bought some fabulous fresh fish from the adjacent indoor market. Thank you to Silvia and her husband who were very friendly, welcoming and helpful and we have no hesitation in recommending this apartment. We will definitely be returning. Thank you.

Beautiful view from lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed in this apartment for a week and it was perfect for our needs. It was very clean and comfortable, and the owners next door were on hand to drive us from and to the airport (cheaper than taxi price we saw advertised) as well as gifting us with some very nice wine, cake and liqueur to try.

The view of Gruz harbour from the balcony is wonderful and you can walk there in minutes to where some boat trips leave; there are also some nice restaurants - I recommend Taverna Otto. There are a lot of steps here and in Dubrovnik on the whole which may be a problem for older people or those with less mobility but it was no issue for us.

The buses from here to the Old Town are frequent, we never had to wait longer than about 5 minutes, and the journey only takes 10 mins max. You can also walk it in about half an hour with some beautiful views on the way.

This apartment is perfect for couples and anyone who wants to stay somewhere a bit quieter away from the crowds, but with easy access to everything.

Thankyou for a lovely stay!

Joanne
