We stayed at Villa Petrosa for a week in June 2016. We had our two girls aged nearly 2 and 4 with us.
The apartment is in the small town of Gruda which is only about 10 minutes drive from the airport and about 40 minutes south of Dubrovnik. It's got three good sized bedrooms and two excellent bathrooms, all the beds were singles. The pool outside is fairly small but big enough for all four of us to have fun in! We used the outside BBQ area too which is a really great feature. As you can see from the pictures the view from the terrace is stunning but what is less obvious is that the apartment is slap bang in the middle of the village above a butchers shop but DONT let this put you off!
Gruda feels like a real Croatian village, there were no other tourists in the village. It's a bit rough and ready but we loved that. There are two very good bakeries within a couple minutes walk, supermarkets, bars, Pizzeria and two amazing restaurants. One in Gruda called Koraceva Kuca which was fabulous and the nearby Konavoski Dvori which you must check out.
Niksa was a wonderful host, there to greet us and willing to help with any questions. We made use of the private beach which is about 15 minutes drive away and offers some fantastic swimming and snorkelling and you must meet the goats!
A word of caution with little ones, obviously there is the pool but the stone steps up to the apartment are unguarded so if you have well behaved kids like ours - fine but just take care!
The only negative I could come up with was that the kitchen is a little small and has no microwave but this is really not that important and didn't effect our enjoyment at all.
Overall we had a fab time and would recommend it.
