Apartments and Villas near Lapad Bay, Croatia
Caretaker was very helpful, nice lady. More warning of the many mosquitoes, should have known but the ferocity of the little devils was extreme. We were disappointed at the lack of sun allowed on to the rear terrace due to the hillside position and the many tall trees there. We couldn't get the English programmes on the TV but as we wouldn't let the men watch, it didn't matter! Also could have done with another armchair in the lounge.
We used Rental Cars and were happy with the vehicle. However collection and drop off at the airport is a nightmare as there is not enough space to drive in and out.
Impressed with: Scenery, lovely coastal drives, cleanliness of the sea and the air, reasonable eating out.
Not impressed with: Hilliness everywhere! People generally weren't the most friendly we have encountered but we did come across some very nice ones.
Recommend: Scala Pizzeria near Tommy’s Supermarket, which was also good. Visit to Dubrovnik Old Town and wall walk is a must. Lots of restaurants and bars there too.
Favourite villa moment: Sunset over the sea viewed from one of the pleasant bars along Lapad Beach.

Impressed with: Relaxed, nice people. Good value for money and lovely water to swim in.
Not impressed with: Dubrovnik is a bit overrated. Lovely history but too many people from the cruise ships and day trips.
Recommend: We visited the island of Lokrum from Dubrovnik harbour for the day. It’s a 10 minute boat ride and has an inland lake for swimming which was lovely.
Favourite villa moment: We loved having the aircon and wifi to come back to after a hot day at the beach, and that we didn't have to pay extra for it.

Beautiful villa and exactly as advertised.It was nice to have everything as advertised. I found the information provided on the website and by email prior to the trip was great. Very private - comfortable beds. Beautiful beaches and scenery. Amazing history - Dubrovnik was amazing. Felt very safe and at ease - no trouble being understood; a majority of people spoke some English. We arranged a car hire and insurance through the website also - it was also very well-organized and we were able to pick up the car with no problems. It served our needs very well and we were able to easily do several day trips to Split and Montenegro from Dubrovnik.

Thanks for everything we are just back and had a fabulous holiday. Your company made it all very easy and stress free, and the apartment was perfect, so close to everything and gorgeous location. The family themselves were brilliant, couldn't have been more helpful. We will have no hesitation recommending your company and the apartment itself.
