Apartments and Villas near Gruz Lapad, Croatia
The villa was amazing and just like the pictures. It was in a beautiful location and was well equipped with all kitchen utensils. It was spacious and only a short taxi ride to the old town. We would definitely recommend a stay here - you will not be disappointed.
The owners were great and were very helpful. They helped us with our luggage and were contactable if we had any questions. They were very friendly and we had a dinner cooked by them which was amazing. They were also very flexible regarding our check in time and let us check in early and check out later. Thank you!
One thing to mention is that it is better to contact the owner directly rather through Croatian villas if you want a flexible check in time. We did not find Croatian villas useful or helpful in this respect.
Impressed with: The beautiful scenery
Recommend:The old town is a short taxi ride away. A walk to Lapad beach area is also very nice.
Croatian Villas comment about check in time: The check in time can only be varied by the property manager. Any variation to check in / check out time will depend on previous guests check out time / next guests check in time. So e.g 2 weeks before you arrive, the villa may show unoccupied the day before your arrival, however a last minute booking could come in which could occupy the day before your arrival. This is the reason Croatian Villas can only recommend you contact the property directly the day before or on the day of your arrival to request an earlier check in. Same situation applies to check out time.
Stayed May 2013
While the house was nice, we hired the villa because of the private heated pool advertised on your website. When we got there, the pool was not heated, but worse, it was filled with muddy water, was absolutely filthy. The owners were also very unfriendly and the villa was furnished with a meager supply of dishes and glassware. The pots and pans were also too small for a villa advertised to sleep 8-10.
Stayed April 2012
Villa Comment: When you arrived there had been terrible weather/storms and even floods in Dubrovnik, most unseasonal, which had caused havoc with the pool. The owners offered you immediately a 20% discount because of this and this was something you accepted. Amount of dishes and glassware is sufficient for up to 12 persons.
On the same day it was realised that more people were going to stay at the house (11/12 in total) than the official capacity (10). In view of this the owners offered you the following choice:
1. Additional unregistered guests must leave the Villa
2. The additional guests could stay at the Villa at the original price so without the 20% discount.
Option 2 was accepted.
