Owners were there to meet us and after showing us around said he was available by text or by mobile, but we didn't need to contact him and didn't have any other dealings with them.
We did ask by email prior to travelling if beach towels were provided and were advised they weren't and therefore brought these with us and when arrived there were actually towels provided.
The only downsides of this property are the lack of a pool, which there would be room to build in the largely unused garden at the rear, but understand this may not be practical given location. Fortunately it wasn't too hot and the sea is close by for a quick dip. The other issue is regarding the privacy of people walking up the steps to the Mali Ston walls, although there wasn't a huge amount of people - we actually caught one lady looking over the wall while we were sunbathing. After some careful locating of the umbrella this gave us more privacy, but a small fence or additional planting would resolve this. The additional of a BBQ would also add to the self-catering facilities.
Recommend: We ate at Kapetanova kuca 5 of the 7 nights we stayed as the seafood was superb and the best in our 2 week trip across Croatia. All others in the village rarely had more than one or two tables taken, but Kap Kuca was full every time we went. Also stagnum in nearby Ston for good thin crust wood fired pizzas, a rarity as usual thick and Italian style.
Favourite villa moment: Drinks on the terrace in the eveningToo many to pick one, we loved the lovely village and fantastic seafood available locally. It was nice to have Ston just a walk away for groceries and morning coffee in the square watching the world go by. Would definitely return and hope Mali Ston doesn't become too commercialised as lots of the properties are currently being renovated.
Villa comments: Great to hear people enjoy their stay overall. About the BBQ and more privacy - a big stone BBQ will be ready for 2013 and a fence of some kind to keep people from looking in, so that will be sorted.The pool idea is great but being located within the village walls, planning regulations for the moment do not allow for a pool to be built.
Stayed September 2012
Beautiful old house right amidst the old stone walls of Mali Ston with great views and patio. Villa was very well furnished and decorated. Due to the amount of steps to get to property it is only suited for people who are mobile and don't mind climbing in/out of their villa to do anything. Only negative is villa needs microwave due to location which owner seemed to resist. Only place in world we have visited over last 10 years that does NOT have one. Also owner did not know how to operate her TV which was a real inconvenience-again due to location and steps! Area is very scenic with great local red wines and seafood.
Impressed with: The walls and salt farms are outstanding. Great location to visit Dubrovnik also.
Favourite villa moment: Having drinks /meals on patio overlooking the ancient walls and fabulous views of bay!
