Apartments and Villas near Molunat in Dubrovnik, Croatia
Prior to departure we enquired re the availability of a hair dryer in the apartment.
You confirmed that there was one. There wasn't !!!!
However, apartment owners lent us one for the duration of our stay.
An electric kettle would be welcome as electric cooking rings are very slow and not well marked. (ie 1,2,3 etc). We borrowed a kettle from an adjacent (unoccupied) apartment.
Molunat was very quiet (enjoyably so) - Restaurant Monica closed on our first full day there, so there were only two bars in the village (again not a problem for us) one not opening until 4pm somedays !!!!!, and no restaurants. Village of Gruda had a very acceptable local restaurant/bar (open all day and accepting Euros) - Bistro Belmondo. Apartment owner booked a table for us at Konavoski Komin - a car needed but well worth it.
Owners will apparently cook for guests IN SEASON.
Impressed with: People, cleanliness and ease of motoring.
Favourite villa moment: Peace & view

The owner of the apartment was very friendly and helpful, as well as extremely tidy and organised.
This property was very unique and perfect for the type of break that I envisaged and the description that you gave was exactly representative. I think it might be advisable to mention the lack of eating establishments available. There was only one limited restaurant, which was good. The apartment was for self-catering and that was fine but on a short holiday I was looking more for eating out. Luckily we had rented a car and were therefore able to go elsewhere otherwise I think we may have found it restrictive.
I would really have appreciated some comfortable sun loungers and parasols to have put out on the rocky shore from which to sunbathe. There were a couple of old sun loungers not very easily accessed which I tried to use but could not get them to work. I did not find lying flat on a concrete slab very relaxing. This is the one thing that I missed on this holiday.
Impressed with: Roads very good but no traffic in the Konvale area that we were staying.
Not impressed with: The stagnation of political will to support the endeavours of the local community.
Recommend: We visited Dubrovnik for a day which was a must., and also Cavtat which offered some holiday buzz.
Favourite villa moment: We shared a barbecued fish supper in the beach kitchen of our accommodation with another couple who were staying at the same time. They caught the fish and cooked it there and then and we then ate it looking out at our fabulous view of the bay.

It’s a beautiful spot, we hope to return especially low or off season. Some better information concerning what was available off season. Also, better signage on appliances including the bathroom water heater would have been helpful.
Impressed with: We were reminded of the good value of a Croatian holiday, also how relatively unspoilt it still is, though this was helped due to it being low season. Food was better than some reviews!
Not impressed with: he footpaths on local maps and literature were in some cases very inaccurate.
Recommend: A short hop to the border of Montenegro brings further delights of the historic Hercog Novi and the bay of Kotor.
Favourite villa moment: Either buying local strawberries to eat with breakfast on our balcony or swimming in the clear blue sea from the villa steps.

Molunat is a charming fishing village, very quiet and picturesque and an excellent place to relax. The hosts were extremely hospitable hosts, even inviting us into their home to watch the football final! Nothing was too much for them.
