The old Mediterranean port of Kotor is surrounded by fortifications built during the Venetian period. It is located on the Bay of Kotor (Boka Kotorska), one of the most indented parts of the Adriatic Sea. Some have called the southern-most fjord in Europe, but it is a ria, a submerged river canyon. Together with the nearly overhanging limestone cliffs of Orjen and Lovćen, Kotor and its surrounding area form an impressive and picturesque Mediterranean landscape. (Source: Wikipedia).
Please note, Kotor can get noisy in the evenings as the young and the young at heart soak up the atmosphere (and a few drinks).

The apartment is really nice! Perfectly located and super clean. Both Peter and lydija will take excellent care of you. We had an amazing time and we could not have found a better location than this flat! Apartment is very bright and bed is very comfortable! Thanks Peter!!
We had a great few days in Kotor made all the better by this apartment. It's in a perfect location, right in the centre of the old town so everything you need is nearby. The apartment is a good size, has lots of light, a comfy bed and comes with fridge, pans etc should you want to cook. Although parking isn't provided, Lidija the friendly woman who greeted us on arrival told us about some free parking a few minutes walk from town. She also gave us recommendations for booking tours through Old Town Hostel (I think that's the name) which we did and enjoyed a lot, as well as drawing us a little map to show us the way to the lake we wanted to visit. We had a couple of questions during the stay but we couldn't use our phones to call Lidija (beware of massive charges in Montenegro for Italian phones!), so we used the wifi to message Peter through air Bnb, who always responded extremely quickly, which we really appreciated. If we ever come back to Kotor,we would definitely stay here again. Thank you!
Both Peter and Lidija were very personable and easy to get in contact with. Great, central location in a gorgeous town. Carnivale was on which meant the bar outside the apartment was extra noisy, but that can't be helped! Also, the slanted ceilings made the bathroom a little uncomfortable for my tall boyfriend, but overall we had a pleasant stay.
Peter's apartment was in a fantastic location right in the middle of the Old Town with so much to do right on the doorstep. The apartment was lovely and gave us a great base to go off and explore from without worrying about getting home.
Both Peter and Lidija were easy to contact at all times, responding promptly to any queries and Lidija was lovely when we had some travel disruptions on the way from Dubrovnik and ended up arriving about 4 hours later than we had planned to.
When we finally arrived and were met by Lidija she was very helpful and gave us lots of information about local places to go.
We had a great time in Kotor and would definitely recommend this apartment!
We didn't meet Peter but he was really contactable through the messaging system and very helpful, and gave great recommendations about other places to go in Montenegro.
Lidija, who manages the property for him was also very nice, helpful and gave us some great restaurant recommendations.
The apartment itself is very nice and it is noisy until 1am, but then the music outside completely stops. To be honest, we saw some great live music in one of the nearby bars so staying out until 1am is probably a good idea anyway.
Peters apartment was lovely, very spacious and in the heart of the old town! You really can't be anymore central! Peter and Lidija were great hosts, they stayed in touch throughout our stay and provided great advice on things to do and places to see. Great place to stay!
Apartment is really well located, right in the centre of the old town. It was clean and just as it looks in the pictures. Lidija, who met us, was helpful. As others have said only downside is the music from the casino outside which is loud and goes on till about 1am.

About the Host, Peter
I have loved and lived in Montenegro since 2005. Having traveled/back-packed myself for many years I hope I understand at least the very basics of what you're looking for in accommodation. Clean, great location, well priced and amenities such as WiFi, Smart TV, Cooking Facilitates etc.
