Minela was a fantastic host, she met us on arrival and to show us around and let us know about the supermarket, bus, all the restaurants worth visiting as well as all the sights in the old town. To top it off the apartment was amazing! Clean, roomy and well fitted out, it even has a secure car space.
The Lapad apartment is perfect. It is very well located; being a short 10 minute bus ride into the old town of Dubrovnik and a 5 minute walk from the nearest beach. There are cafes, bars and restaurants in Lapad as well as a small Tommy supermarket. These are all within easy reach of the apartment (2 minutes). You can walk into the old town, which takes about 35 – 45 minutes, if you fancy a change from the bus. It took us a little longer because were stopped sporadically to take pictures, but it’s quite a pleasant walk. The bus cost about 12 Kuna for one return ticket, so it’s worth buying a Dubrovnik card if you’re planning on using it a lot. It can get quite busy at peak times too, so head in by 10:00 if you want to miss the crowds.
The apartment is very spacious, with a large lounge/dining/kitchen room, a nice bathroom and a large double bedroom. A large, sliding window opens at the front of the apartment to allow you get some fresh air, if necessary. There is a terrace outside the front door, but this is quite shaded and shared with the studio apartment, so we didn’t really use it. We ate in on several nights, and the kitchen was very will-equipped with all that we required. The bedroom was well-stocked with extra sheets, pillows, towels and pillow-cases. The lounge room has a comfortable l-shaped sofa and the television has plenty of channels if you want to switch off for an hour in the evening. The whole apartment is finished to a high standard and is very clean.
Miloš and Milena were brilliant hosts. There was a bit of a problem with the parking bay, as another guest had quite a large truck. This was easily resolved and Miloš very kindly showed us where we could park, close to the apartment, once we had unloaded our luggage – even giving us a lift back to the apartment afterwards. He was very helpful in giving us plenty of tips regarding where to eat, how to get around and which islands to visit. Unfortunately we didn’t get to say goodbye to Miloš as he had to go away for business, but we met Milena as we checked out and she was very kind, asking us if we had enjoyed our stay and found everything ok. They are both into their food so had some good recommendations for local restaurants. The Taj Mahal (Bosnian cuisine) was a great choice, which we enjoyed on our first night. We would certainly recommend booking this apartment. It is lovely, has all that you would need and is very well located to explore Dubrovnik and the surrounding area. We didn’t want to come home.
The apartment was lovely, spacious and clean. The kitchen was well equipped and we felt very comfortable here. We arrived way before check in time, but they let us leave our bags there and go for an explore, and when we returned we had a tour, plus recommendations for the local area.
The apartment is well located for the beach, promenade of restaurants and there is a supermarket nearby. It is also very close to the bus route to go to old town, or it is a gentle 35-40 minute walk.
I am a frequent user of airbnb and have done so for over a year all over the world. I have to say that Apt Lapad is one of my favourites. The location was perfect, not too far from Old Town, and also close to many of the excursion points making it a very ideal location- and for first time visitors to Croatia it was just perfect. Location aside, the apartment was superb. We were all very impressed with all the amenities in the apartment - and even more so with the space! We had expected the pictures to maybe be a little deceiving but it certainly was not! We were even able to invite some guests over and not feel so cramped.
Our hosts; Minela and Milos- well, what can we say! They were both so helpful from the moment I inquired about the apartment and throughout our stay! Milos had also kindly written down a detailed direction to visit a must see island- Lopud (cannot be missed!) which was so clear and concise and also had fantastic suggestions for great eateries and bars around the area.
Our stay was perfect, and we most certainly will be staying again! We've fallen in love! So be sure to see us again Milos and Minela! :) xxx
We stayed at Lapad apartments in August 2014, and we enjoyed our vacation so much! Minela and Milos are very kind, friendly and polite persons! It was a great pleasure to communicate with them, we always felt their hospitality, care and help. They gave very good and useful advices to us - where to eat, what to visit etc. You'll find very useful guide at apartments' s info page.
The apartments are very great located (few min to promenade, 5-7 min to supermarket and beach, 1 min to pharmacy, 3 min to bus station), very clean, nice, cozy and cute! There is everything, that you'll need - all kitchen appliances, watching machine, dishwasher, cleaning kits, towels etc.
Minela and Milos are always in touch and ready to help you. They're so kind to find opportunity to check in us, although we've arrive early in the morning, make us a breakfast! It was so nice!
Hope, we'll come back there next year! We're strongly recommend these apartments, you'll enjoy your stay!
This place is fantastic. We had an amazing experience with milos and Minela. They are such lovely people and they also speak fluent English.
The apartment was incredibly clean, full of all the facilities you could think of and very close to several beaches, restaurants, the main strip, and old town is only about a 20 minute walk, which was great! Every room is air conditioned and even the bathroom. The apartment is spacious and could comfortably fit 4/5 people. Milos and Minela were so kind to give us some traditional Croatian liquor as they found out we were making dinner and were ever so kind to bring some. It is also convenient that they live below the apartment and are always around to answer questions or give you adive.
I highly recommend this place to everyone, I think staying here is a lot nicer than the old town. It's quieter, peaceful and allows you to enjoy dubrovniks natural beauty.
A really great place to stay in a breathtaking city. The apartment is in spotless condition, is really comfortable and looks just like the pictures. Great value for money but Minela and Milos make the difference and go beyond in being super hosts, are very friendly and eager to help. Great location for the beach and local amenities and a short bus ride to the old town. The reviews here are good for a reason, and I would happily return and stay again.

About the Host, Minela & Miloš
Hi, we are a couple in our 30's, born and living in Dubrovnik, would be more than happy to have you as guests in one of our apartments. We'd also be glad to offer you a local insight of what to do, and where to eat, and anything you might want to know.
Minela is a professor of history currently working in multiplex of cinemas and Miloš works in software development. We both have lots of interests - Miloš is an amateur photographer, making 360 degree panoramas and Minela is lately working on phd thesis about women monasteries. We like meeting new people, exchange stories, listening to music, cooking and exploring new cuisines and recipes. We are big foodie people so we can recommend you some great restaurants in the area. We both like to travel and have at least dozen places on our "wishlist" so we always treat our guests as we want our hosts to treat us.
Hope you will book one of our apartments and that we'll have a chance to welcome you in our hometown.
