About this listing
Two bedrooms, one with the sea view, behind the big building on the main road (thus avoiding traffic noise) and only a few steps away from Banje Beach overlooking the Old town. Take a 5 minute walk to explore the eternal beauty of Dubrovnik.
Our apartment location has the best of both worlds - 2 minute walk to the beach, 5 minute walk to the Old Town!
The two bedrooms Apartment makes the first floor of my semi-detached house which is situated behind the wide building facing the street above the Main Dubrovnik Beach. It has an excellent location, in Ploče area, close to Hotel Excelsior and 5 minutes walk from the Old Town. Banje Beach are 2 minutes away from the flat, 30 metres descending the stairs. To reach the main road which leads to the Old Town, Banje Beach, markets, etc there is only 65 stairs from the apartment.
The Apartment is categorized with 3* and can accommodate 4 persons. The apartment has 50 m2 with air-conditioning, two bedroom (one with two single beds - each bed is 110x200cm wide, other with a double bed 160cmx200cm)), TV set, kitchen (with electric oven and all that you need for cooking), dining area with a table and 4 chairs. The bathroom has a tub, shower, washing machine. The toilet is in a separate room. Both the toilet and the bathroom have a window. We have Wifi Internet, which is free of charge for you. Bed linen, towels and beach towels are provided. No private parking space.
The apartment was newly renovated in May 2015. It has a small table outside with an umbrella in front of the entrances of the two apartments. Since the other apartment has a big terrace upstairs, this table is only reserved for this apartment as we emphasize here and in person.
The Old Harbour is 10 min walk and from there you can take a boat to the Island of Lokrum (every half an hour) or go to Elafiti Islands.
If you arrive by plane, take the Airport bus (35kuna) and go to Pile to enter the gate of the Old Town, go through the main street Stradun, and go ahead to the end gate to enter Ploce where you go straight to the Banje Beach to enter the big building with the address: Supilova (FRANA SUPILA) No.21 , 3rd floor, Mr Pero Dangradovic who will take you to the apartment. It is shown in the picture that is a screenshot from (website hidden) Earth.
You do the same if you arrive by bus to the Dubrovnik Main Bus Station (GRUŽ Harbour) from where you take the local bus 1a or 1b to arrive to Pile, or if you wish to walk less with your luggage, you take the local bus No.8 and take off at the next stop after the CABLE CAR STATION (the same place where you will wait for the Airport Bus when you will be departing from Dubrovnik if you are taking a airplane), walk ahead for 3 minutes and descend the stairs of the SUNČANA ULICA (i.e. street) all the way down to enter the big building to arrive to Mr Dangradovic, 3rd floor.
If you arrive by ship, Main Bus Station is in front of the ship (GRUŽ Harbour), and do the same as explained above.
The guests have table and the chairs with the parasol in front of entrance to the apartment.
Interaction with Guests
If the guests wish, I give them information about the town and the neighborhood and answer to whatever interests them. Most important for us is that the guests depart satisfied wishing to come back!
Guests should arrive from 14.00 till 22.00 (only in exceptional cases they may arrive earlier and later than these but should inform me at least 3 days in advance).
Guests should leave the apartment no later than 10 a.m.
Guests should keep the noise down after 10 pm because there is a lot of people living around.
Pets are not allowed. Smoking is allowed in front of the apartment, on the terrace.
The air condition device should be turned off while guests are absent from the apartment and the windows closed when they use it. The guests should take care not to enter the apartment with the sand and small pebbles from the beach.
1.Please do not leave crumbs or food on the table or on the floor because it will attract ants. Take away garbage bags in a dust bin 50 metres away from the apartment on the road towards the Old Town, on your right hand side.
2.If you wish to have hot water in the bathroom please TURN ON the switch for BOILER where the switch for light is, outside the bathroom door. (Do not turn on the switch for heating, please!)
We had a great stay in Eleonora's apartment. It was spatious and clean and had all the comforts of home. The shower was excellent and having a washing machine was really handy. The view from the roof deck was spectacular and the location was perfect for walking to the beach and to the old town. We loved it there and wish we could have stayed. The apartment building complex was really cool with several stairways leading here and there and a family of cats sleeping in the garden. It was a little paradise. I recommend staying here and hope to be back soon.
The appartment is really perfectly located, in front of a small beach and at 5 min walk from the old city. We were kindly welcomed by Mariana who made a tour of the appart with us explaining everything. During the whole week we were in contact with Eleonora who gave us some tips like less known (and less crowded) beaches or what to do when the weather was bad. I would for sure highly recommend this place.
We stayed in the appartment for two nights. The communication with Eleonora was perfect and she was very reactive to our questions. The appartment was as described. It is very well renovated, it was very clean and the airconditionning and wifi were working perfectly! There are supermarkets and restaurants close by and you can have breakfast in the kitchen. We took a bus from the airport, however I would recommend to take a taxi, since carying the luggage might be difficult because you have to cross the old town. I am definetelly recommending Eleonora's place!
The title of this place is not a lie. This genuinely is a perfect location for a stay in Dubrovnik. The front door is literally across the road to the steps down to the beach, it's 5min max to get to the old city and inside the walls. There is a mini-market 2min down the road, the bus stop to the airport is not too far as well.
The house is lovely and has air conditioning in both the lounge and the bedroom which is great on those hot summer nights. There are a few flights of steps to get to the house but if you can't handle them then you will find the city hard, as there are steps everywhere!
Eleonora was an amazing host! Unfortunately we didn't get to meet her personally but her neighbor was ready and waiting for us on arrival. She also messaged us with lots of useful information about the house and the city and made sure our stay was pleasant.
Highly recommend on all levels!
The apartment is located in a less busy part of Dubrovnik, but still close to everything, particularly the beach, which we loved! The street was easy enough to find, but we did get a little lost trying to find Mrs Dangradovic's apartment to receive the keys for Elenora's. A neighbour was able to help us though. There are quite a few stairs leading to the apartment, but this didn't bother us too much.
The apartment itself was very clean and spacious with plenty of bath towels, beach towels and bed linen. The shower has great water pressure, and the outdoor seating area was very nice and quiet.
Eleonora was a great host and was very easy to contact and communicate with.
We loved our stay here!
Perfect location right in front of Banje Beach and only a couple minutes walk to the old town. Very convenient! The apartment had everything we needed. Clean, spacious, a comfy bed and most importantly a high pressure shower! The neighbour was lovely as she showed us through the apartment and how things worked. Eleanora also had many local guides with pages bookmarked with recommendations. We can't wait to come back!
perfect location! Banje beach is just in front of the apartment - we could swim and tan in the morning and again in the evening.

About the Host, Eleonora
I live in Zagreb with my son Stefan and the two of us are responsible for communicating and coordinating with our guests via Airbnb, our mail or mobile phone. Our two assistants Mirjana Đangradović and her husband Pero Đangradović live in Dubrovnik whose home is in the large building in front of our house. They are the ones who welcome guests and lead them to the apartment. Since they are also neighbors to the apartments they can help in person and in a short notice. Mirjana Đangradović is also in charge of cleaning the apartments and preparing them for the guests. Her husband Pero Đangradović takes care of the gardens and is a handyman who can repair things if necessary.
The job of four of us is to ensure that our guests have a great stay in Dubrovnik, so if you need anything feel free to contact me via Airbnb, my mail or mobile phone (my number starts with +385 98). If you can not reach me at the moment you can also call my son via his mobile phone (his number starts with +385 91). And of course you can always knock on the door of family Đangradović, they will be happy to help you.
I am a translator/interpreter of the English and Italian language. My son is a law student, he speaks English and French.
I like to travel, and I travel whenever and wherever I can. We have been renovating our house in Dubrovnik thus having 5 apartments to rent. I enjoy being a host communicating with people from all over the world!
