Maja's apartment in Dubrovnik was great - we easily could walk to old town, the cable car, and even a beautiful beach down the road. Having the balcony's to wake up and sit on during breakfast with the view of old city was an extra bonus. If you want a traditional Croatian experience close to old town, this is your place!
A wonderful experience from start to finish. Communication with Maja was always quick and friendly, and when arriving in Dubrovnik, we were met by the very gracious and helpful Petra, who scored us a free parking spot--no small feat--and got us easily situated in the apartment.
As the pictures show, the apartment is incredibly spacious and homey-- and the views of the Adriatic and old town are to die for. It rained a fair amount of the time we were there, so having a covered terrace with an awning allowed us to sit outside and enjoy the views without worrying about getting wet. Score!
Everything was spotless, well organized, and arranged with a lot of care and thought to the little things: a welcome snack in the kitchen, umbrellas for use, easy wifi, and a local cell phone pre-loaded with their numbers in case of any difficulty. The master bed is super comfy and the shower has very nice water pressure. The kitchen is well kitted out if you want to cook a meal or two, and little grocery stores are within easy walking.
The location was absolutely perfect for us--a 10 to 15 minute walk from the old town--close, but in a more residential apartment area, not in the middle of the madding tourist throngs. Yes, there are a fair number of steps, but not an onerous amount, and the view is sooooo worth it. It's also 5-10 minutes to a beautiful beach with many amenities. If the weather had been sunnier, we would've been down there in a shot.
It's close enough to the old town and the water that there can occasionally be some residual city noise. Our last night, sound carried from a fake pirate boat/disco that had sailed out in the nearby waters and blasted thumping dance beats til late in the night. We were so happily tired from our adventures that it didn't matter, but light sleepers might find it a challenge.
Dubrovnik was our last stop in a 10-day whirlwind trip from Slovenia down the Croatian coast. We stayed in many lovely little b&bs and apartments, but this one will particularly stand out in our memory. Thanks Maja and Petra--we hope to come back soon.
Maja nous avait prévenu que sa belle-sœur nous attendrait et nous avait fixé un point de rendez-vous. Pas de problème, Petra était là, elle nous a conduit à l'appartement et nous a tout expliqué. Un petit parking était à notre disposition à 50 m de l'appartement, il était souvent encombré mais on a toujours trouvé une place pour garer la voiture. Une attention particulièrement gentille, Petra a laissé dans l'appartement un GSM sur lequel son numéro de téléphone et celui de Maja étaient enregistrés. En cas de problème, pour toute question, elles étaient là, disponibles. En plus, une liqueur faite maison et des amandes sucrées nous attendaient.L'appartement était tel que décrit dans la présentation et était très bien équipé. Une belle situation, proche de la vieille ville (10 minutes à pied) et à 5 minutes d'une plage (en galets bien sûr). Mais cette belle situation a un prix : l'appart étant situé à flanc de colline, nous devions monter 120 marches pour y arriver. Cela entretient la forme... Bref, un bon séjour.
Anita was very friendly and helpful showing us around the house and giving instructions to our taxi drivers. We had a great time in the house- the hot tub was amazing and the views are beautiful. We ate in the restaurant below the house which was nice and quite cheap. Other than the restaurant there isn't much nearby but the bus stop is very close and its easy to get to the Old Town/ supermarket. The house was perfect for our group of 7 friends- thanks Maja!
Maja made our arrival easy by arranging transport from the airport for the 4 of us. This delivered us to the appartment where the lovely Petra was waiting to show us the way and give us a guided tour of the appartment and facilities. This was fantastic, especially as we didnt arrive until around 9pm.
The apartment itself is great, with views to die for. The stairs leading to a short 10 minute walk delivers you to "old town" which is full of character and amazing buildings etc, are a challenge but totally worth it to experience what this apartment delivers. Loved our stay, wish we could have stayed longer and would recommend this apartment to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Dubrovnik.
Our stay at Maja's apartment was very good. We enjoyed the aparment and it's amenities. The location was up a considerable number of stairs, but once you were there it was very relaxing. Maja made us feel very welcome.
The photos and description of the suite were accurate, which is always a good thing!
The neighbourhood had everything you needed - a grocery store, a café, and was located quite close to the old town. The Old Town is a 10 minute walk. Returning to the apartment meant that you had to climb some stairs back up, but that is the case for many places in this same area. Banja beach is only five minutes from the apartment.
Overall we had a good vacation and we would stay here again.
Petra was there to greet us as soon as we arrived from the airport, and she was very friendly and helpful in getting us to settle into the apartment. The apartment itself is lovely, and has everything you could ask for. The hosts have done all they can to make your stay enjoyable and hassle free. The views from the apartment are simply stunning, and we spent many hours on the balconies. The location is fantastic, only 10 mins from the Old Town and the 'beach'. Yes there are a lot of steps...174 from the street to be exact, but that is the same all over the city. The views from the apartment certainly make the uphill worthwhile. We used the airport transfer service offered by Maya, and can not fault it at all. We were met at the airport and driven straight to the door, in a lovely air-conditioned vehicle. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone wanting somewhere to stay in Dubrovnik.
We had a wonderful 3 day stay at Maja's apartment. Fabulous views..5 minute walk to the beach and 10 minute into the Old Town. The small supermarket close by was a bonus. The apartment is air conditioned. .which was needed during August. Although we didn't meet Maja, her sister in law Petraeus was most helpful. Beautifully appointed apartment. Highly recommended.
As we love the dubrovnik area and usually try out different places to stay however last year we fell in love with this apartment and decided to return for a second holiday here . We were not disappointed . There are so many thoughtful touches in this apartment which make you feel cared for ; The mobile phone and numbers to call if there are any problems;the welcome pack including the toilet rolls;soap and dishwasher tablets provided for the internet and use of a computer ,the transfers arranged from the airport ; the well stocked kitchen which make cooking in the flat really easy and Plenty of towels for the week. I have never stayed anywhere which felt so homely. In addition to that the views of the old town and lokrum from the 2 main balconies are absolutely stunning and eating a meal as the sun goes down on that balcony probably competes with the best restaurant views in Dubrovnik . The local supermarket is a few steps away so stocking up on food is easy. It is also close enough to the local beach so we were able to pop home for a siesta in the heat of the day ; the air conditioning in the hall and the bedroom fans provided is ample to keep all the rooms cool so it's really a superb base for a holiday in Dubrovnik
We loved the apartment! We spent many hours enjoying the amazing view of the sea and of old town. The beach was close and Old Town was a short walk away. The host was very helpful in explaining details of the apartment. The market is close so we were able to make small meals at home.
Maja was polite, communicative, and left the apartment in perfect condition. Recommended.
