“Amazing hospitality, comfort and location”
Reviewed 13 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I agree with the plus points listed in the other reviews. I’ll try not to repeat too much and add a bit.

We had a wonderful week here. The outside space is lovely to relax in. The sound of the water outside is wonderful. The bay is beautiful for swimming, the water was so calm and clear, and you can watch the boats sailing past. There are steps into the water so you don’t have to walk barefoot across stones to get in. The water was warmer than I expected. It wasn’t a busy beach in June. It was lovely to swim after the heat of walking round in the old town.

The apartment is a great retreat from the crowds, but just a couple of minutes away from the old town. The directions we were sent got us straight there a few minutes after stepping off the airport bus. Many local buses also stop nearby and it is very easy to get around by bus - e.g. to Port Gruz to get a ferry to an Island for a day.

Our hosts were very attentive but never intrusive. There was homemade liqueur for our arrival along with water and wine. We had fresh cherries delivered, homemade cake and even a surprise cheese and ham platter. They are really warm people and made our stay special.

The apartment is very well equipped. The wifi is good. Aircon is great.. And the bed is just so comfortable…

I am so glad we stayed here, just sorry that I am not still there :-)

“I could not fault this apartment or it's location!”
Reviewed 24 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Like previous reviewers, this is the best apartment I have ever booked. Others have reviewed the apartment, let me tell you about the location. With it's own terrace overlooking the sea, just outside the old city walls and beneath the imposing fortress, the villa has easy access to an excellent swimming bay. If you want a location close to everything but quiet and with the sound of the sea on the rocks below, this is it - I swam everyday it was so good. Your hostess (Nada) used to run the best hotel in the old Yugolsavia, so she knows what she is doing - have fun!

“We didn't want to leave as it is extraordinary place and incredible hostess”
Reviewed 6 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

It is a gamble when you book a vacation rental over the internet. In this case, the pictures are perfect and our hostess, Nada, was wonderful. The apartment is by the ocean (not your typical sandy beach of course, but it is really by the ocean). The water sound during the night is just wonderful.
Big pluses:
- Apartment is perfect for two people and location is superb, right outside the wall but considering the amount of steps within the wall, this is actually easier to reach
- Very clean and with all the modern amenities we like in western societies (appliances and airy)
- Wonderful hostess
- Ocean view and easy access the water ocean
- Near all major historical points
- Dubrovnik is just wonderful but the best of the whole trip, the Croatian people. They are really proud of their cities/towns and enjoy picking up random conversations with tourists. - You don’t feel hassled by random people on the street asking for money

My only two cautions:
1. Try to stay longer if you can - totally worth it
2. In the summer, the beach may be loud early evenining, so voices are echoed accross the cove during a beautiful night. But this is out of the control of beach areas.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 4 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We are so glad we ended up booking Villa Lovrenc! We looked at many different lodging options and almost went with one of the nice hotels just outside of Old Town but at the last minute we decided to go with this apartment because of the balcony. We definitely made the right decision.
You can't beat the location. You are a 3-4 min walk to Pile Gate, so very close to everything. But Old Town, Dubrovnik gets VERY busy during the day when the busses and cruise ships roll in and we were so happy to have this quite oasis to retreat back to. The apartment was perfect for my husband and I but would probably work really well from a small family too. It had everything we needed and was very comfortable. We loved having all the windows. It was bright and breezy. The pictures do not do it justice, especially the balcony. The balcony is amazing, I wish we had stayed longer so we could enjoy it more.
However, the real gem of Villa Lovrenc is Nada, the host. We were visiting Croatia for our honeymoon and our first night in Croatia was here. Nada made our arrival so special and so memorable. She went above and beyond in a way no hotel could possibly do. We are so thankful and grateful for her kindness. It is something we will remember and treasure forever!
Villa Lovrenc is fantastic, you will not regret staying here!

“Exclusive apartment”
Reviewed 12 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

To everybody who could be looking for lodging in Dubrovnik: you can stop looking for it from now on because this apartment is a wonderful finding. It´s perfectly located and equipped, aside from enjoying the kindness and personalized attention you´ll get from the host, Nada Maric. We looked for several kind of lodging before finding this one and finally stayed there for almost four days in Easter. It has been an unforgettable stay. What you get is the next:
1. A personal feeling of exclusivity. You will be in a quiet oasis just steps walking from one of the busiest cities in Europe due to tourism. That is, isolation almost in the middle of the city.
2. Perfect location, 5 minutes walking from Pile Gate. This is crucial to avoid public transportation and all the buzz in downtown (lodging in downtown has its downs).
3. Unbeatable sights to the Adriatic Sea and Dubrovnik castle. Dawn and sunset are set exclusively for you.
4. A complete equipment with all appliances you can need. In addition, the bed is comfortable and all rooms are very sunny.
5. As for the pictures you can see, there is more there than meets the eye. The apartment will overcome anyone expectations.
6. Last but not least, the kindness and personal treatment of Nada, the host. She is always willing to help the guests. Her treatment and conversation are must.
In short, making a beeline for lodging in Dubrovnik: make a reservation for this apartment a.s.a.p.
