Peaceful and Adriatic July are usually oxymorons but this was an idyllic refuge from the hordes of Petrovac that allowed us respite and ebnergy to carry on exploring this beautiful area. The swimming pool is stunning and the entire property well maintained although if you are not a cat lover you may be put off by Sandras menagerie and need to keep your door firmly closed. If you are you will enjoy many am cups of coffee on the deck watching them play. If you enjoy exercise you will love the many steps down to your deserted rocky cove or the track to a nearby pebble beach. If not you can drive to say Petrovac or others nearby. The kitchen is underwhelming but adequate for breakfast and sandwich lunch and regardless is good value for the price. I would definitely return preferably not in peak season but this is a good choice if you are forced to travel then.
The apartment is well located. You can from here easily explore the area. There is parking for your car to the apartment. There are stairs to the sea.
The owner Sandra is a beautiful and helpful wife. She is always friendly.
The apartment is very large. There is also a terrace.
The bathroom is small but everything is there.
The pool is great! There are quite a few umbrellas.
You can order breakfast if you want.
The kitchen was not good. The kitchen was small and cooking was difficult. There was little material to cook and eat. There was no cutlery!
There was air conditioning in the lounge but not in the bedroom. It was sometimes hot in the bedroom.
We (a group of four) stayed at Sandra and Marko's apartments for a wonderfully relaxing week in June 2014. It's positioned on a craggy stretch of unspoilt coast between Petrovac and Sveti Stefan and has its own well-tended swimming pool with beautiful sea views. For the more adventurous, there are footpaths (two with steep stairs) leading from the apartment down to two small bathing coves and a beautiful pebble beach, where you'll find Balun beach bar. We were unlucky with the weather and had a couple of rainy days, but there was plenty to do within driving distance (it's less than an hour to Kotor or Lake Skadar by car, and not too far from Ostrog Monastery).
Our apartment had a good shower, air conditioning, a large terrace with excellent sea views and a basic kitchen with a sink, hob, fridge and a Turkish coffee pot, which was perfect for our needs - we ate breakfast in every day and lunch on the days we stayed by the pool. We opted for the top-floor apartment and shared it with our friends (another couple) -- the sofa in the sitting room turns into a (firm but adequate) foldout bed.
Sandra offers home cooked meals if you book two days in advance, and they are very good value for money. We ate in on our last night and opted for the traditional homemade pasta, which came with a host of appetisers, salad, bread and a carafe of local wine. Sandra prepared a table for us on the pool terrace, which was incredibly romantic, and served us one of our best meals in Montenegro. If you fancy a change of scene, the nearby restaurant is very good too - try the local Vranac and lamb under the bell. As PaulFromAuckland says, you do have to walk along the roadside and there is a small portion with no path, but we carried a torch and had no problems at all.
Sandra, the hostess, is really bubbly and positive. She introduced her family, told us she was born there. The views and sunset were brilliant. The pool essential.
We tried going north along the main road on foot to get to the restaurant but there is no footpath and no room between the side of the road and the barrier so we retreated. Too dangerous. We got food at a small shop with cheap prices by hiking down to the sea on an uneven tramping track with snakes, then walking up to the village slightly further north than the restaurant.
Our sleep quality was poor with the hard bed and mosquitos, but we overcame that by shutting the windows and putting the aircon on automatic.
Despite those issues, I would highly recommended Apartments Skocidjevojka. The views and pool are perfect and Sandra lets you experience a beautiful slice of Montenegro.
After we left Apartments Skocidjevojka we got a taxi into Budva for EUR15, then a slow 3.5 hour bus ride to Dubrovnik for EUR18 each.
Petrovac and nearby Budva are pretty busy and noisy - these apartments however are in a small quiet hamlet in between, easily accessed from the main road but out of earshot of it. There is a nice swimming pool and plenty of parking. The apartments are reasonably well furnished, although the kitchen is pretty simple. However the location is superb. The owners speak good English and are very welcoming and helpful too. The only downside is that there is only one (admittedly good) restaurant in walking distance - otherwise you will need a car and to go to town.
Overall a wonderful stay and highly recommended compared to the other options on offer in the area (especially for the price range)
