We really enjoyed our stay at Coco's Stairhouse and highly recommend it. 1st of all: The location in the old town could not be better. 2nd: The apartment (especially the kitchen) is very well equiped, we could even use the musli, coffee, butter, oil, vinegar and the washing mashine. 3rd: Marina is extremly helpful and knew the answers to all our questions. She provides travel books about Dubrovnik, but much more important: She recommends the best places to go to (restaurants, cafes etc.) - and she REALLY KNOWS the best places to go to!! When we wanted to go to the little islands north of Dubrovnik, she knew which bus and which ferry to take. When we asked for a well equiped sport club, she knew where to go. She has always been extremly helpful. (She works in her little shop next door, so it is easy to find her, if you have questions.) Just two things you might want to think about: 1st: It was really nice that we rented the whole house for ourself, so we had 3 floors - just ask Marina about the conditions. 2nd: We really enjoyed that we came in the end of September/October. (Dubrovnik was still a little bit crouded at the weekend, but not as much as in July/August.)
The listing was everything we were expecting it to be. It was very clean and ready for us when we arrived. Marina was on hand to greet us and go over what we needed to know about the accomodations. It was very good of her to provide us with basics to get started - coffee, milk, juice etc., as well as some recommendations of places to visit and eat.
Wonderful. Firstly the house is really easy to find in the heart of the Old Town and since there are no vehicles inside the walls it helps that the house is not up one of the hills or flights of steps in the town. Marina was charming and helpful on arrival and showed us over the well equipped house - offering as much help and information as we needed. This included her own recommendations for eating, several of which we tried and enjoyed (particularly the unlikely sounding Taj Mahal Resteraunt, serving Bosnian food!).
There were many nice personal touches to Marina's own home, which she is renting out, including her CD collection and range of guide books and we were particularly grateful for the various provisions she left for us.
But be warned, although we were delighted by the house it is an old town house spread over three floors and there are a lot of stairs - I suppose the clue is in the name!!
Marina was very warm and welcoming, and an excellent hostess. We were made to feel very comfortable on our arrival and she ensured that the kitchen was well stocked with vital provisions such as tea and milk (essential for any English guests!) and also breakfast. Her personal guide to local restaurants and must see places was helpful and she was easily contactable if required. The stairhouse is in a very convenient spot - ideally located for those on a short break. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend the apartment.
My friend and I stayed for 3 nights during August. Marina was very welcoming, taking time to explain where things were located and offering some local insight. She also prepared a list of recommendations for activities and places to eat which we followed and were very happy to have done so.
The apartment was exactly as described. Being located just off the main street in the Old Town it was easy to find and very convenient to walk to the main attractions and restaurants. The apartment had all the amenities that you would need and had a very homely and arty feel. It was well kept and very clean. The beds were comfortable and the quiet and slightly dark rooms made for some good night's sleep.
I definitely recommend this apartment for its superb location and Marina as an excellent host.
Marina was a lovely host. Her two bedroom house was beautifully decorated and, if you don't mind stairs, a wonderful place to call home whilst in Dubrovnik. It is situated on a small side street off the main one right in the center of the Old City, so is a little loud at night. She was very gracious and even gave us a 10% discount at the adorable shop she runs next door to the property. We would highly recommend staying here.
Cocos Staihouse ist eine sehr schön eingerichtete Gästewohnung in bester Lage. Nur wenige Schritte von der Hauptstrasse entfernt und trotzdem sehr ruhig gelegen. Die Nähe zum Pila Tor macht An- und Abreise denkbar einfach. Marina ist eine tolle Gastgeberin, flexibel und hilfsbereit. Ihre Tips waren alle wirklich super und das Haus ist voller nützlicher Kleinigkeiten, äußerst liebevoll und durchdacht eingerichtet. Wir waren mit unserer Tochter da, die das Haus auch toll fand. Nur für wen Treppensteigen ein Problem ist, ist hier nicht richtig.
This is a beautiful house in the heart of Dubrovnik's old town (Grad) we were blown away by the location, it really is perfect. We were welcomed by Marina who showed us around and made us feel at home, she is lovely! The apartment is vintage chic, and sophisticatedly decorated. Great shower with a huge shower head! Marina recommended some great restaurants in her annotated map she made us when we got there, and again you are right in the centre so everything is easily walkable! Getting to and from the airport is very easy due to its central location again, its only about 150m away from the old city gate entrance where the shuttle bus drops you. Air conditioning worked well in all the rooms which added to the high comfort level. Better than staying in a hotel we felt in terms of standard to money ratio, location and atmosphere. We would really recommend this gem of a house!
Many thanks for your time & review Kanmein- I'm really happy that you liked the place:D Thanks for being so lovely yourselves.Take care:))
Great location! Great hostess! We booked a last minute reservation to Croatia. Marina, our hostess, was able to accommodate us. (Marina's cute store is located next door, so she's available for guests). She provided wonderful advice towards what to do (side trips, booking tickets, and more). Also, dining choices were excellent. I hope everyone enjoys their stay, as we did.
No worries Dina, it's all set! Thanks for being such wonderful guests:)
The Stairhouse was perfect for my stay with another friend. The best part is the location -- we arrived late and were happy to see that the flat was minutes from the main bus drop point (Pile Gate). It was especially helpful that Marina was so flexible with our arrival time, as our flight was 2 hours delayed. She was available for questions throughout the trip and was nice enough to leave us breakfast food. It's a very unique home in the heart of town.
Thanks Shannon for everything - all the best and let me know if you're ever back in DBK:)
I really enjoyed hosting Marina! She's a great interesting person and after only 5 min with her I already felt like talking to a dear friend! She's so decent you won't even notice her if you don't want to :), but trust me, she's great not only as guest, but also as person!
Nice clean and respectfull, perfect guests!
