We might unintentionally repeat what others have written but our recent experience at S & L Guesthouse made us feel it is more than just a place to stay; it's a special place to return to.
Ante happened to encounter us with our baggage as we were climbing up the steps from the main street up to the Guesthouse; somehow we'd mis-read a review that it was a short and easy walk from the bus station. It isn't far, but with bags and flight fatigue, we recommend taking up his offer to be picked up at the nearby bus station. After we settled in a bit, he and his wife graciously cooled us down with a serving of excellent ice cream, as he shared information about the neighborhood, Dubrovnik in general, the bus routes, and beaches.
We found the location of S & L well-suited to our preference to be slightly away from a city center, to get a feel for where residents live, and to shop at the local farmers' market nearby for fresh produce. It's also a great location for taking a ferry or long-distance bus as the stations are close by, or for renting a car. Note: although we bought a three-day Dubrovnik card, we didn't use the bus tickets up; it might be a better value for those who don't walk as much as we do or who go to every museum.
Our top-floor room was very nice: comfortable bed, its own bathroom, with balcony and view which made it especially nice to sit in the early evening watching the sky darken and lights begin to sparkle across the water. The kitchen/dining area is well-equipped; we prepared several meals during our week-long stay, and the terrace became ideal for sitting to eat and chat with other guests. It's great that S & L provides the use of a computer and TV, laundry done for a reasonable fee, amenities not always available at comparable accomodations.
Ante is a great resource; he also took us to the fort, made arrangements for an Elafiti Islands excursion, gave recommendations, dropped us off at a beach on his way to run an errand. We appreciate the personal stories he shared, and enjoyed being near his family - his elderly mother walking about the patio trying to communicate with us in her native language. S & L is a great place to stay in Dubrovnik!
