“Fabulous Getaway”
Reviewed July 14, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This apartment was exactly how it was described on Tripadvisor and MORE! The apartment was very easy to find by car and there was free parking within 20 meters of the home. The owners Marina and Mato were absolutely wonderful. They have an amazing home and went above and beyond in helping us find restaurants, tours as well as answering any questions we had. Their apartment was so comfortable and homey. They also have a beautiful secluded garden in the back. Upon arrival they had pastries waiting for us. The apartment is above their winery in which they sell their mazing wines, brandy and local art. It is right on the waterfront with easy access to a bus that can take you to the Old Town. We appreciated the fact that we didn't stay where all the tourist stayed and could escape back to this apartment. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance and a place to book your tours is next door if you so wish. If you stay here, take the time to talk to Mato and Marina about the history of their building and area. Truly an amazing place to stay. Thank you Mato and Marina for all your hospitality. We will see you again!

“Delightful find and historical location”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Marina & Mato have a great location in Lapad with a lovely & good sized studio apartment (& garden). The space is inviting and was a great rest when we first arrived during a rain storm. Buses are easily accessed and good restaurants and cafés nearby.
We very much appreciated getting to know more about authentic history from the shipyard area, which added a nice texture to our understanding of Dubrovnik. Mato & Marina have a great wine shop below the studio apartment, and sampling their wine was a treat. The best part was getting to know our hosts , who are both warm and engaging.
If history is interesting, their stories of many generations of family growing up in this neighborhood will add an amazing frame to your visit to Croatia. We look forward to returning and staying with them.

“visit the Old Town, but stay in Lapad!”
Reviewed June 12, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

What a wonderful studio, and such kind and friendly hosts! This apartment was perfect for 2 friends, with exclusive use of an amazing garden, and on the waterfront. Everything was close by, with easy access to buses to the old town. Wonderful restaurants to suit any budget were within walking distance. The owners also have a winery, and sell their delicious wines and brandies right at the front of the 400yr old family home. The apartment was meticulously clean, and very cosy, with free WiFi. Marina had prepared a delicious cake, and 2 large slices were waiting our arrival. We went to Old Town approximately 5 separate times, as there is so much to see. However it was always rather chaotic, and we were so glad we had the foresight to stay in cool and peaceful Lapad. Well done, Mato & Marina! We would definitely recommend this accommodation, and would stay there again.

“AMAZING!!!”
Reviewed February 4, 2014 for a stay in July 2013

I could not have been more pleased with my stay. I am 35 year male from Los Angeles CA and would 100 recommend this location for a traveler who wants a relaxing environment close enough to the city to walk/bus and excellent wine right below the apartment. I made arraignments to be picked up at the airport (highly recommended and worth the extra money) and they dropped me off at the bus station free of charge for my connecting trip. Thank you for the excellent wine and stay!

“What a charming and friendly place!!! Excellent!!!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Marina and Mato are supreme hosts! They treat you like no one else does! The place is charming and clean. It has every thing you need and more. The location is excellent, you avoid the crowds of the Old City and you experience a more "local" way of life. You have every thing you need within walking distance and I can not emphasize enough the hospitality of the owners! Friendly, nice and very helpful! Do not look anywhere else, this is the place!
The only challenge was the shower, but Mato took care of it promptly

“Great find!”
Reviewed September 27, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Amazing location, close to everything: 10 minute walk to grocery, bus stop, beach, lots of restaurants and cafes, marina, fresh market and more. Every prior comments were accurate, the studio is nice, clean and well furnished - we were not disapointed with our choice of rent and would recommend it to anyone. Marina and Mato were amazing hosts.

“A wonderful experience”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

This is an excellent studio apartment in a perfect location and is part of a family home. We stayed here for 14 nights and were sorry to have to leave it.
The location is very good being a 30 or so minutes walk from Dubrovnik's old town. The Old Town does get a bit busy which is somewhat dependent on the number of cruise ships and so it was good to be able to do other things too.
The apartment is within easy walking distance of three beaches (Copacabana, Cava and Lapad) all of which are well kept and have good services. We were surprised how many fish (numbers and variety) we could see when snorkeling
There are several good restaurants close by (Mozart, Taverna Otto and YC Orsan were particularly good) and a very nice breakfast and coffee spot just across from the apartment. We also liked to use the little ferry boat to cross to the daily fresh fruit vegetables and fish market in Gruz where there are further restaurants and shops.
There is a good travel agent next door and I would recommend using them for day trips - we visited Montenegro with Dario which was a very good day out.
I cannot speak highly enough of Mato and Marina who own and run the apartment - they did everything from providing transport to and from the airport, to advice about what do do and where to go any by their gifts of wine and cakes to make our holiday one of the nicest experiences we have had. They also run a very interesting winery - do plan to spend some time there one evening.
Oh, and did I mention the garden - I could have spent most days sitting reading in this tranquil walled, shaded garden.
