Interaction with Guests
Someone will be at the apartment during check in procedure to help you settle in and that's it. If you need anything I'm always at your disposal via email, sms or a phone call.
The apartment location is pretty good, it's located in quiet part of town called Gorica svetog Vlaha, some 20 minutes of easy walk from the Old town of Dubrovnik. Close to the apartment (some 200 m) is beautiful sandy pebble beach called Bellevue.
There is a public bus station right in front of the apartment building. But I really recommend walking. Apartment is a walking distance from Old Town city center with great views along seaside.
Other Things to Note
On the ground floor of the building you will find a market for basic groceries (open on Sunday too).
If you are arriving by car there are are lots off free parking spaces all around the apartment which is rarity for Dubrovnik.
On days where we have a "change over day" situation I must me strict about check out time latest by 10:00 AM and check in after noon, so cleaning service can come and prepare the apartment for next guests. On all other days we can agree on check in / check out time. The apartment is located in a small apartment building with mostly permanent residents and it is custom that there is peace and quiet from 14:00 till 17:00 PM, something like "siesta" :)
In addition, recently we had very bad experience with some younger guests...they throw a party for couple of nights leaving the apartment building awake all night. Neighbors in the apartment building are all permanent residents, mainly older and some of them even seriously ill and house rules clearly says that after 10PM there should not be any excessive noise and parties. Now, I must say to all my future guests to pay attention to this.
Nice, clean apartment. We were with 4 persons and had enough space. The balconies were great. Ideally located, close to some great beaches to swim in the sea. The walk to the old center is about 15 minutes, but pleasant. We had to change check-in time a couple of times because we were driving there all the way from Budapest, but Goran made sure we were heartily welcomed.
Goran was very prompt at replying. The apartment was in a fantastic location, very convenient with a supermarket underneath. Very clean, and great walk into the old town. Would recommend!
Appartement bien situé: facile de se garer, 20 minutes à pied de la vieille ville, et plage publique à 5 minutes.
Grande chambre pour les enfants.
Un vrai plus: la climatisation.
Super accueil de son père, avec plein d'explication sur les choses à faire.
Appartement assez vaste, en duplex, avec une petite terrasse abritée attenante au séjour et une plus grande à l'étage, avec vue sur la mer. Logement agréable, mais la cuisine mériterait un bon rafraichissement. On a aussi manqué de couverts. Il faut 30 minutes pour rejoindre la vieille ville. La balade n'est pas désagréable, quoique bruyante. Pour le retour, il est très facile de trouver un taxi.
The apt was very nice and described accurately. It was very close to a beautiful beach with a cool underwater cave and cliff jumping which was awesome, and only 2 km from the old (website hidden) on both floors was a plus. The upstairs loft is even cooler in person than the pictures, and there is a great view from the upstairs balcony. There is also a washing machine and a clothes line which was very convenient, and the apt was stocked with all the essentials like laundry detergent and electrical adapters. Overall it was a great experience and I would highly recommend this apt.
We had a lovely and rememberable time at Goran's unit. Great location. Apartment is very clean !Supplied most of the things we need. Goran is very accommodating and quick in response to our requests. Thank you Goran and your parents for helping us with airport transport. All the best.
WE were met at the airport by Goran's father, Peter, who couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly.....what a wonderful introduction to Croatia and first airbnb experience for us.
Peter must have seen the looks on our faces when we saw the stairs and happily carried our bags up the 2 flights of stairs for us..thankyou Peter!!
He gave us a concise run down of the apartment and then used a map to show us everything we needed to know including the Belvedere..a lovely local restaurant 10 minutes walk away from the tourist precinct...we went back there twice.
Goran, although living in Zagreb, promptly answered all email queries from how to open the window to booking us our bus tickets to Split (sitting on the coastal side of the bus so we would get the views...so thoughtful!)
