As we arrived into the wonderful walled garden, our host Mara welcomed us with real warmth, she felt from the first words trust-able and sincere, not like the fake hospitality we have received at many 5* establishments around the world.
The accommodation was clean, tidy, well furnished and automatically felt like a home from home for the three nights we would be staying. Mara was always on hand whenever we had questions but never intrusive as she lives below the apartment.
The small touches of home made lemon, mandarin and walnut liquors plus a small pot of delicious marmalade at our disposable turns a welcome into a feast of delight for your taste buds too.
The location of the apartment is a short (5-7min) walk to the bus that takes you directly to the city walls. Mara will advise you on where would be the best place to get your tickets and eat is within the neighbourhood. Take her advice as we went off piste one evening and had a awful meal but all her recommendations were perfect.
To balance this review there needs to be something negative as things are never perfect. For us as non smokers the apartment allows smoking guests to smoke in the communal areas, but not in the bedrooms (all smelt smoke free even to our over-sensitive noses). This was all in all the only minor negative for us, but for the smokers of this world reading this review it I am sure is a positive hence I mention it.
The acid test is would we stay at this apartment again, yes we would. Mara and the accommodation together with the location makes for a great base to visit Dubrovnik.
