The Space

This apartment is located at the top 2 floors of a 3-story villa. 3 terraces each offer a great view.

Villa Vidak is located in the vicinity of the medieval town of Cavtat. Situated merely 40 meters from the sea and the beaches, it hosts a beautiful view of both Cavtat and the Dubrovnik Old Town.

The villa offers private accommodations in modernly designed rooms. All rooms have: a double bed (can be separated), a private bathroom with shower, a table with chairs on the balcony, air conditioning, SAT TV, built-in refrigerator, and wireless internet. Guests are welcomed to use the large private garden which is an ideal place to rest in a relaxing atmosphere.

The villa is situated in the direct vicinity of the sea, overlooking the nearby islands and the ancient cities of Dubrovnik and Cavtat. Visitors are unanimous that the view from the villa is amongst the most beautiful on the entire Croatian coast.

Underneath the villa, just 40 meters away, is the first crystal clear beach (pebble/sand). Several other beaches are in direct vicinity including a nudist beach situated in an isolated location just 10 minutes walk from the villa. Beaches are clean and the sea is clear.

We also can offer you a small boat rental and excursions organized to your preferences.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a wonderful stay at Mara's villa in Cavtat. There were 9 of us (all adults) and the villa was large enough to accommodate us without us feeling cramped. The pictures accurately describe the villa but don't do justice for the amazing view.
    Mara (email hidden)e provided fresh towels twice during our 7 day stay. She also went out of her way to help get my camera back after I left it in a taxi- for which I'm extremely grateful!
    The villa was clean with full amenities.
    We would highly recommend to others.

  • I cannot begin to express the amazing time we spent at Mara's house. Mara is incredible attentive and helpful and was always there when we needed her. The location of the apt is spectacular - it's right on the water. Once you experience the views from the balcony you'll never want to leave. There are crystal clear secluded beaches right next to the property as well as more touristy popular beaches 5 min walk in the other direction. The apt itself is impeccable. Nicely decorated in modern fashion and air conditioning in every room. The wifi works perfectly. I totally recommend staying with Mara.l, you will not be at all disappointed. The stay was so great we are already trying to figure out when we will return!

  • Mara and her entire family were amazing hosts! Mara picked us up from the airport and even drove us back to the airport at 5:00 am on the morning of our departure. Mara's penthouse is perfectly located in Cavtat atop a hill that allows for one of the most breath taking views of the Adriatic Sea and the city of Cavtat. The bedrooms were all very clean and well taken care of; our group of 10 fit more than comfortably. Mara came up everyday to replace our towels and do light cleaning which was extremely generous. In addition, Mara was always willing to give us restaurant recommendations and even drove us into town one night for dinner. Mara's home is also fully equipped with every kitchen utensil you could ever need to cook a meal which our group did for most meals while staying at the Penthouse. The house has a lovely balcony that serves as the perfect setting to eat breakfast or dinner while enjoying the beautiful scenery that Cavtat has to offer. Overall, our stay at Mara's home was a remarkable experience and I would recommend staying here to anyone coming to Cavtat.

  • Our stay at Mara's house was fantastic. The house is very clean and comfortable. The balcony and the view is incredible. There is a crane and work pending, but that should not put you off. The view is still stunning! Mara was very welcoming and her son also. Be prepared to walk a little into Cavtat but the walk is pleasant. I recommend taking the number 10 bus up on the main road to Dubrovnik which goes regularly. The walk from the house up to the main road is a little challenging for older people as my mum and her friend found, but they did a rest stop and it was good exercise! we all had a fantastic time and would definitely recommend a stay with Mara!

  • Mara and her fabulous Cavtat Penthouse/Villa is OUTSTANDING in EVERY WAY!! We stayed in Mara's 2 story Villa for 2 full weeks late Sept., 2013. We had up to 10 family members and friends (all adults) at various times during these 2 weeks and we cannot imagine having a more gorgeous, fabulous time in the Dubrovnik area without Mara's villa and her hospitality. She, and her family, are amazing and they made our trip extraordinarily special. The VILLA is amazing - 5 bedrooms that slept 2 adults in each room, plenty of bathrooms (Mara will supply a hair dryer), an outstanding layout for the kitchen, living area, dining, table for 10, plus the huge balcony overlooking the Adriatic Sea is BEYOND words, easy access to the charming town of Cavtat - which has shopping, restaurants/bars galore and the bus or ferry to Dubrovnik is close to the Villa as well. The VILLA is incredible - with wifi, glorious kitchen, stocked with all dishes, pots, pans, coffee maker, dishwasher, huge refrig, stove. Mara was absolutley delightful, assisting with airport transport, and she prepared the most amazing dinners for us twice in 2 weeks upon request. Of course we paid her for the lovely dinner/meal, and it was a highlight for everyone. She is an amazing cook! We researched for weeks to find this place and it was the finest Villa we could ever have imagined for our large group, with the BEST view on the Adriatic. Her huge balcony was like an additional dining room for all of us! Our grown children and friends who joined us were so impressed and we give Mara the HIGHEST praise for her Villa, plus her assistance with shopping, airport transportation, checking up on us regularly, assisting in every request we might have, and treating us like friends from the first day we arrived.

  • Thanks Mara for a lovely stay. My husband and son went on the kayak trip with mara's sons and had fun.

  • Our group of six enjoyed our stay at this property. Most of the good points are set out in other reviews, so just a few other things to consider here. First, I don't understand why no other review mentions the enormous crane right in front of the apartment, where there is an abandoned building site. There are lovely views to either side but the crane lies directly on the axis of the view to Dubrovnik and is unmissable. Second, Mara was helpful with lifts to the supermarket and airport. However, we were surprised that she entered the property without invitation - we felt this was inappropriate - to complain to our younger guests about noise as they climbed the stair to the apartment at 10.15pm. The following night there was loud music coming from the hotel along the waterfront until after 11pm and there were other loud and late events nearby - much louder than our party chatting on the way home. Third, I can't understand why no other review mentions the steep steps and fairly strenuous climb from the beach and up to the very small shop (not a supermarket but very well stocked for its restricted size). The property isn't suitable for those who are not fully mobile or reasonably fit. Finally, we pointed out that the air conditioning was not working on arrival - nothing was done about it and we were given no reason for its failure. Having said all this, the property is nicely located at the end of town and we enjoying staying there - the Cavtat town centre is a 20 minute walk but a very pleasant stroll. It'(email hidden) with plenty options for stony and rocky beaches with clear water.

  • Mara (email hidden) just out of the busy centre on Cavtat. My group of eight people loved this place and also the beaches that surround the penthouse. Mara was most accommodating and always made sure we were looked after and happy. Cavtat is easy to access by foot and there is a small cafe and supermarket nearby. Mara was nice enough to do multiple transfer trips from the bus stop in her car to the penthouse with our large group. Thank you Mara for making our stay in Cavtat amazing.

  • It was my great choice to choose Chavtat and Mara's Penthouse.
    Fantastic view over the sea, calm and relaxing beach in front of the house, large kitchen and equipments, etc. For those who travel with family, you'll get more than you expected.

  • We had a brilliant time in Mara's beautiful penthouse. With spectacular views all round, lovely pebble beaches below, (email hidden) nearby, this (email hidden) to stay as well as a Great base for exploring Dubrovnik which is an easy 40 minutes away by boat or 20 minutes by car. The penthouse was well appointed, immaculately clean, spacious with adaptable air-conditioning, and with very comfortable beds . We had a big gathering of family and friends for the wedding of our daughter in the Old Town of Dubrovnik, and in spite of lots of coming and going Mara was friendly, helpful and efficient; nothing was too much trouble. We would definitely stay here again.
