“Perfect Place to Relax”
Reviewed 15 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017
people found this review helpful

This really is a stunning villa, with views from the garden/pool and balcony you could never tire of. The house itself is a home from home, everything you need is there and more, such comfortable accommodation and all finished to a lovely standard and very clean. The pool is clean and although chilly at first (we were there in Sept) is fine once you're in!
The location for us was perfect. The last house down a steep narrow street the views are uninterrupted, not overlooked at all and extremely peaceful, yet not too remote. You really need a car to get around and manoeuvring in and out of the parking space and to/from the main road is a little tricky but part of the charm and not a problem at all. We had an Astra and would recommend the same or smaller to make things easier. All that said you're only a short drive from plenty of nice beaches, resorts, restaurants, shops and Dubrovnik ~15 mins away. We ventured farther to Ston, a beautiful town an hour or so north of Dubrovnik, a picturesque drive, incredible walls to climb/walk, real history and the most amazing seafood (best oysters and squid ever!!). We also drove south to Montenegro one cloudy day, interesting place but a long drive and over 2 hours queueing at the border (beware). You don't need to venture far at all though, there are lots of nice places all along the coast and Dubrovnik itself is delightful, if a little expensive and very busy during the days. We would highly recommend walking the walls in the evening before the sun sets and then wander round, have a drink and watch the world go by before picking one of many great restaurants for dinner. Also keep your tickets for the walls as it gets you into the Fortress just outside them for free too, well worth the climb.
Best of all about this slice of paradise is the owners though. Ivo (Joe), Suncica (Sunshine) and Diana (sorry Diana, no aka for you) met us at the main road and even offered to drive our car down to the parking area for us to unload, although we made it down unaided (sorry again Diana for making you walk in front all the way down, we didn't realise how far/steep it was and should have given you a lift). All 3 welcomed us into the villa, which had been meticulously prepared and treated us with gifts such as their own fresh fruit and veg, their olive oil, vinegar and wine, even some grappa wine drink (like sherry but better), which we all used to toast our arrival, so nice. The warm welcome continued throughout the fortnight, with Diana organising a meal to remember at Panorama restaurant one evening overlooking Dubrovnik, we had the best table in the house!! Ivo appeared every couple of days with more fruits (including figs to die for!!), wine, etc. He is a true gentleman and made our holiday extra special, taking us out on his boat to snorkel and visit the islands for wonderful freshly cooked fish. He also offered to come over and cook a meal for us one night despite working all day (so sorry Ivo for not feeling so good that night, missing the meal which I'm sure would've been wonderful and thank you for understanding and even going out to fetch rice to help me recover and checking on us the next morning). We cannot speak highly enough of our hosts who made us feel so welcome but also left us alone most days to relax and simply enjoy this true haven of tranquility.
Our first visit to Croatia did not disappoint at all and we were so lucky to find is gem of a villa, highly recommended indeed.

“A lovely villa with warm and welcoming hosts and beautiful views to the sea.”
Reviewed 10 October 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The Rustic Stone Villa was comfortable, lovely and had gorgeous views down to the ocean. Ivo and Suncica were wonderful hosts, providing everything we could need and more, including home made wine, delicious grappa, and olive oil. Ivo made a wonderful meal one very special evening. The ripe pears in the yard and the local figs were also delicious, fueling our daily walk up the driveway. We loved our stay here.

“Peace and quiet in idyllic house”
Reviewed 18 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We can only recommend a stay in this wonderful house. We were greated by our hosts who were extremely helpful; they parked our car, carried our luggage and welcomed us with local specialties and gifts! The house is very, very charming and has lots of space. The garden is well kept and the pool just as it should be. And then there is the most breath taking view over the bay and mountains. We were welcome to eat fruit and vegetables from the garden! You can only hear birds singing and goats bleating - apart from that it is quiet. Be prepared to walk up a rather steep road when you leave the house, though, and to use your car to get to a city (only 5 minutes drive though). We are sure that you will enjoy a stay here as much as we did.

“Great family holiday”
Reviewed 15 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Lovely villa in a stunning location. The private pool was great with a couple of teenagers and everything was within an easy drive. The hill down to the villa was not for the faint hearted though. You either need a small car or strong legs!

“Everything we could have hoped for...and more”
Reviewed 7 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We were in Dubrovnik for our daughters wedding and we booked this villa as a family including a 7 year old and a 9 month old baby. It is away from the crowds with fantastic scenery. Ivo, Suncica and Diana couldn't have been more helpful...Ivo even cooked us a meal one evening. I took everything I thought we needed,even down to a small blender for the baby's food , cling film, foil but it was all there. We used taxis which we arranged with Diana. The road down to the villa is steep and narrow but if you hired a car you could park half way down. It is an amazing place with fantastic people. Can't speak more highly and would thoroughly recommend it.
We will definitely be going back again. Thank you Ivo, Suncica and Diana
