Calypso Cave

Condo/Apartment -
Studio , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Mljet Island, Dubrovnik-Neretva County, Dalmatia
Calypso's Cave is studio apartment situated on the ground flour of the old stone house. According to it's old stone walls the temperature is never too high in it so even during Summer months you don't need an air conditioner. The fan is enough even though most of the days you don't need it either. It's position among old walls and buildings gives it special charm.The guests in it have their privacy and at the same time they are 150 m away from the center of the place.Our guests can enjoy domestic atmosphere, socializing with local people, getting to know everything about our way of life,tradition,culture from them.

Interaction with guests
I like to socialize to my guests. When they arrive I offer them welcome drink to discuss about the island, how to get to the certain spots. I always recommend them where to go and hand them my Guidebook for Mljet so they can go around and follow the directions in there. As I live across the street I always invite them for a cup of coffee or fresh fish dinner. My guests have my contact cell phone number so they can send me an SMS if I,m not home. I organize trips around the island if the guests come without a car.

About the neighbourhood
Babino Polje is in the middle of the island so every spot you want to reach is max 20 km away. The nearest beach Odysseus Cave is only 20 min walking distance through the field(shade).Obod beach (my favorite) is 35 min walking distance through shady path in the field underneath Babino Polje.Sutmiholjska beach is 4 km away from Babino Polje. There are lot of walking and hiking tracks around Babino Polje. The supermarket is 5 min walking distance from the apartment.The pharmacy is 10 min walking distance. The bar, Post Office and the Kiosk are 5 min walking distance so as the main Square and the main Church of the place. There are a lot of old chapels walking distance and Rector's House too.
Getting around
I recommend renting a car or scooter which you can do at the harbor as there is almost no public transport at all.There are lot of spots walking distance but if you want to see the whole island I can give you a lift by my car for reasonable price.

How to get there
Airport: Dubrovnik: 70.0 km
Ferry: Sobra,Prapratno: 7.0 km
When you get to Sobra turn to Babino Polje direction. 7 km away there's a sign Babino Polje on the left.Turn right to the village road of Babino Polje. Follow the road for 2 km.When you see KRALJ TOMISLAV monument on the right and little CHAPEL on the left park your car..There's only one main road and one road through the village so it's very easy to find me!The apartment is 30 m underneath the chapel. On the left of the chapel there are stairs leading to my neighbor terrace. Pass that stairs and the terrace. Than there are 2nd and 3rd stairs to pass. On the bottom of the last stairs turn right and follow the path for about 20 to 25m. You'll see the yard and front door on the right.Follow last 13 photos of the advertisement to make it easier
