We stayed at Dubravka's lovely house this past week on a family vacation to Croatia. The house is just as lovely as it looks in the photos, and very clean! Dubravka was a wonderful host, always fast with communication and helpful in any way she could be. She even gave us tomatoes and other vegetables from her garden! The house is certainly spacious enough for six people, we as five fit very well. The outside patio was certainly the highlight of the house, with it's wonderful view and nice dinner table. We spent as much time as we could there! The house is on the top of a small hill, with a great view over the island across the way and the Croatian coast. It is not in Dubrovnik, as it states, but is an easy 20 minute drive away. Having a car here is certainly useful, though there are also bus connections (which we didn't use). It's a 5 minute drive or 15 minute walk (steep) to the local beach, which was very nice. You can hear the road from the house at night, but only slightly. The whole house is in perfect condition, seems recently renovated. The town itself is quite small, there are only two restaurants and one shop, but it was peaceful and just what we wanted! Overall we had a great time in this nice house, and would certainly recommend it to anyone!
Ideal if you're self-driving in Croatia. The views out to sea and the Elaphite islands are spectacular and the host was very welcoming (with cake!). Would definitely stay here again. A great example of why Airbnb is better than a regular apartment rental - all the little extras you need to prepare yourself a meal are there like oil, salt etc. I find a lot of commercial rental companies remove all that stuff after every guest, forcing you to buy your own.
Dubravka is the nicest person ever, very warm and welcoming. The house is really spacious, perfect for 4 or 6 people. The views from the terrace overlooking Elaphite islands are absolutely breathtaking, you just want to sit there for hours! The surrounding is very peaceful and relaxing. You can enjoy being around locals, at the same time you are very close to the beach and to Dubrovnik. We can't wait to come back to this apartment!
