About Nikolina

My name is Nicolina. All my life I live in this area and know which are the best places and events. I graduated in tourism management. I have a family, husband and two sons. We all love to travel and explore.

We are looking forward to meet new people and new culture

Nikolina purchased this villa in 2012

Why Nikolina chose Dubrovnik

I just copy text from tripadvisor review from my guests:

“There is simply no better place to stay in Dubrovnik”

Reviewed August 19, 2016

We were a group of 8 friends, and we stayed for 4 nights in May 2016 in this marvellous villa. Perfect location, short drive into Dubrovnik and a short walk to some amazing beaches, restaurants, shops etc. We all had ample space, for private times and group times. The pool area, the bbq area, the villa itself, the attention to detail...really it is like stepping into a picture book luxury home. Yet, the layout and furnishings are so comfortable, you feel very much at home from the minute you walk in. Nikolina and her family could not have been more helpful and friendly. We just wish we could have stayed longer.

What makes this villa unique

Guestbook comments from the owner

“lovely estate”

5 of 5 starsReviewed February 12, 2014

This 5 BR villa is to die for beautiful. Every detail is perfect. The outside is magnificent with views from both sides of the home, a bocci ball court, and badminton too. The landscaping of the property is stunning. The pool is lovely and fun to hang out by late night. The villa's inside is beautifully appointed with more than enough common space, very clean, and well laid out.

Location: Perfect. You are a 5 - 10 minute walk from the beach, which enhances the privacy. The drive to the old walled city of Dubrovnik is maybe 10 - 15 minutes. And, if you are going to be in the region for a week, that is just the right amount of distance. The villa is a quick drive from the airport.

Activities: Nikolina will arrange anything for you - jet skis, private boat rides, taxis, etc. She and her husband are unbelievable hosts. If you're concerned about proximity to the owners, first, they're so nice.

Simply The Best

  • 4 of 5

We visited Dubrovnik for a family wedding and were delighted to stay at the Villa Gorika. There were 10 adults and 5 young children in our party and the villa comfortably accommodated us. Not only is the villa itself full of character, but the gardens and facilities on-site are excellent. The villa was clean and organised for our arrival and the owners were very helpful and friendly. The pool area is lovely and relaxing and is in the sun most of the day. There is a huge barbecue area and a boules court, children's playpark, badminton/basketball court on-site. The relatively short walk to the coast is interesting and there are shops and restaurants within about 20 mins walk. The owners arranged for a regular taxi driver (charming lady) who took us wherever we needed to go and was always ready.

We would definitely recommend staying at the villa and hope to return ourselves in the near future.

Beautiful villa, fantastic host!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my large family (including lots of small children) for my sister's wedding. The villa was ideal for all of us from my elderly mother right down to our youngest member who is only 1 year old. Nikolina was very welcoming, helpful and kind. She was able to facilitate anything we asked for. The taxi service was also very useful. Nikolina was able to recommend some lovely local places to eat and also provided a chef that cooked us a lovely barbeque one evening. The property is 16th century and is everything you'd expect from such a characterful home. It was clean and full of everything we needed including plenty of towels and toiletries to make our stay even more pleasant. We went in October so the pool wasn't as warm as the high season but there were plenty of loungers to relax and occasionally dip our feet in. The en-suites were huge and very modern. I would definitely recommend! It was a bargain in October, the perfect time to go as the weather was amazing. Close to airport and Dubrovnik, the taxi service always took us where we wanted to go! Oh and you must try the homemade liqueurs! Thank you Nikolina xx

Family Birthday holiday

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a property in the Dubrovnik area for friends and family that was suitable for our 3 young grandchildren. The villa proved to be ideal in every respect: great location, super accommodation with a swimming pool which was accessed through a gate providing a good safety feature for our grandchildren.

However the best feature of the property was the excellent service provided by Nikolina. Friendly, helpful and full of really good advice: her recommendations for restaurants and trips in the area all worked wonderfully well and I would have no hesitation in recommending this property. You will not be disappointed.

A stunning and luxurious villa

  • 5 of 5

We arrived as a group of 11, various ages. The moment you arrive at the prooerty there is a complete "Wow" factor. You feel like you have just stepped into a little bit of historic paradise. The house is beautiful. The gardens, courtyard (bbq) and pool areas are 5 star. The layout of the property means there is space for everyone. Inside, the bedrooms and bathrooms are all finished to a really high standard. Nikolina and her family live next door and are incredibly helpful. She helped us organise trips (the yacht trip is a must), gave us so much advice, helped arrange taxi's and even made soup for one of our group when he became ill. We fell in live with Croatia during our trip. If you book this villa then you are in for a treat. We will be back.

Stunning Villa for a PERFECT Wedding Week!!

  • 5 of 5

A wedding week is something that can be stressful and require lots of advance/last minute planning. I can honestly say that Nikolina and her family made our wedding week more than we could have ever imagined. The personal touch started right from our arrival as we were welcomed with local liquors to celebrate the beginning of our wedding week. The rooms were clean, well appointed, and ideal for our needs. The villa is located within its own private walls allowing for absolute privacy from the surrounding area. Nikolina was consistently prompt with communication prior to our arrival, during a pre-wedding visit, and during the wedding week. Nikolina, literally, handled everything. If we needed a taxi for anyone at the villa it was at the door within 5 minutes. She planned an amazing boat trip for 13 of us to nearby islands, arranged delivery for food on several occasions, and even cooked a traditional meal for us. On our wedding day, the grounds were spotless and well-manicured. Nikolina set up the entire reception dinner that was prepared outside on an open fire. The table was set to perfection, the wine was amazing, and the service was of the highest standard. We cannot begin to recommend Nikolina and Villa Gorica enough. I have no doubts whether you are planning a simple family holiday, wedding, or any other event that Nikolina could arrange anything you could possibly need.

Superb Villa

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous time we had at Nikolina's lovely villa. My family and I stayed they for 10 nights from July 14th. My three adult children with husbands and partner and my father celebrated my 50th birthday there. We were not disappointed.

The villa is huge and well equipped, the bedrooms all have en suites bar one where the bathroom is next door. Everywhere is immaculate including the gardens.

The villa has a lovely pool and ample comfortable seating. The grounds are amazing and there are several seating and eating areas plus outside BBQ. The badminton courts were popular with our crowd.

Nikolina was the perfect host and all her recommendations and reservations were faultless. It was nice to meet the lady I had been emailing for the past 6 months and find that she is such a genuine lady who just wants you to have a fabulous holiday.

The beach and bars are about 10 minute walk away but you will need a taxi to go anywhere else but Nikolina will arrange this for you.

My daughter forgot her medication and Nikolina took us to 3 pharmacies and the A and E department making sure we got the medication. Nothing was too much trouble.

I would not hesitate in making a recommendation to stay at this villa . I would go back in a shot!!
