“Excellent vacation at Villa Rosa”
Reviewed 1 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We had an incredible stay at Villa Rosa for our honeymoon. We spent as much time relaxing on the terrace, enjoying the beautiful view, as we did exploring the old city. We would walk across the street in the mornings to go swimming and enjoy wine in the evenings overlooking the sea. Very simple access to the attractions, a quick bus ride.

Michael is wonderful. He will direct you away from the gimmicky tourist spots and will tell you what shouldn't be missed. Our most memorable experiences were based on his recommendations.

Villa Rosa is not to be missed! Do yourself a favor and book this apartment.

“A Bay of Delights”
Reviewed 8 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

You may be trying to figure out whether you should try and get a room in Dubrovnik or stay outside the city. We were in this position not long ago and I am so glad that we decided to rent this lovely apartment which overlooks perhaps one of the Mediterranean's most glorious bays.

Dubrovnik is a wonder of the world and definitely worth exploring but in the scorching summertime the streets are like the racks of a toaster. Zaton, just a short bus ride away, offers astounding beauty, warm, clear waters, a selection of excellent restaurants and welcome tranquility.

A half hour walk around the bay through wooded trails leads to magnificent cliffs where it is possible to find spectacular yet sheltered coves which teem with beautiful fish. Pack a snorkel and some swim shoes and look forward to some of the most incredible sights of your life.

A special mention should also go to the host, Michael, who is an Irish-American with a fascinating life story and a gift for real hospitality. He gave us a very welcome ride into Dubrovnik on our first day and we enjoyed drinks with him on his spectacular verandah.

Getting to the bay from the house involves crossing a busy road. This can be a little hairy but plans for a major new road mean traffic should fall off dramatically in the future. It's important to note that there was absolutely no problem with road noise at night and it was not obtrusive when sitting on the balcony.

There's a great supermarket nearby with a superb bakery section and a good service runs from the bus stop outside the house. Excellent air conditioning in the bedroom ensures you can stay cool no matter how sweltering the summer gets.

We'll treasure memories of our time in Zaton, and this well-equipped apartment was a brilliant base for our adventures.

“Romantic Restful Holiday”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

My wife and I stayed at Villa Rosa on our honeymoon in early July. We absolutely loved every aspect of our visit. First and foremost, Michael the host and owner is gracious and very knowledgeable about the area (He put fresh lavender from his garden on our pillows). He is a tremendous resource for any questions about local activities and he is very professional in communicating about booking of the accommodations.

The descriptions of the apartments at Villa Rosa are all very accurate. The apartment is perfect for a couple trying to relax and enjoy each others company. The village where the apartment is located, Zaton, offers a little bit of everything one might desire while vacationing on the beautiful Croatian coast. There are a few restaurants of every type from fancy seafood to more simple bar fare. If you would rather eat in, a small grocery store is located nearby with reasonably priced food items, some fresh produce and full selection of beer and wine. As far as swimming, there are two quiet little pebble beaches that are great for laying out catching some sun. The Old Town of Dubrovnik is 20 minutes away by cab and a bit longer via the bus which will pick up a few doors down from Villa Rosa. My wife and I enjoyed the distance from the crowds and peaceful atmosphere of Zaton.

The most endearing aspect of the apartment is the incredible terrace. We loved to start every morning outside with a fine cup of coffee (Croatian coffee is excellent) and to finish every evening we enjoyed watching the shimmering lights as they danced on the bay.

The inside of the apartment has everything a couple might need to enjoy a comfortable vacation. The kitchen is fully stocked for cooking your own meals. The bedroom is spacious with a comfortable bed and the air conditioner was greatly appreciated.

All in all Michael and Villa Rosa make for an enchanting holiday. We would recommending a stay there to anyone considering visiting the Dubrovnik area

“Perfect Spot outside Dubrovnik”
Reviewed 1 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My wife and I staying at the Villa Rosa apartment for 5 nights in July 2015. Though the unit is right off the main road it really is a perfect location. Short walk to the water and to the port Zaton which has more than enough good restaurants to avoid requiring a drive into Dubrovnik. However, if you want to go to Dubrovnik it is a short drive or bus ride into the old city. Bus stop is conveniently located across the step. In addition a small, but very busy market is a few steps away. The apartment has a full kitchen thus easy enough to stay in and enjoy the view from the balcony.

Few other positives: (1) washing machine was very critical as it was very hot during our stay and (2) an air conditioner in the bedroom as once again very hot during our stay. As noted right on the main road, not really a highway, so if you have a car you immediately head north/south to a number of destinations. There a literally hundreds of places to stop along the road for a swim.

Micheal was a great host and it was a 100% no hassle stay.

Thank you for your kind words. You and your wife were great guests and as I said, if you had stayed another week, you'd know the area better than I. I gave recent guests some tips for swimming, you had told me about - the island you can walk out to. They loved it.

Thanks again,

Michael

“More than a great choice!”
Reviewed 7 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Upon arrival to Villa Rosa I was shocked by the charm. The views were so picturesque that I couldn't help question whether or not the sight was real. The natural beauty of the region cannot be summed up in words.
I reached these conclusions shortly after I discovered the private terrace that complements the amenities I had with the apartment. The bed was well made, the kitchenette was at the ready, the bathroom met every need, and there was plenty of seating to use for a small lunch/dinner with new friends. Speaking of friends, I recommend taking up your host Michael on any offer he makes to show you around. Very knowledgeable and can steer you clear of any tourist traps.
The apartment is quite conveniently located as well. There is a small mini mart store located down the street and is in walking distance. Public transportation is very easy to use getting back to the apartment from the old city of Dubrovnik. You are given private keys to your apartment as well so you have complete freedom to come and go as you need.

Overall I am quite pleased with my stay at Villa Rosa and will definitely return as soon as I can. Hopefully sooner rather than later!
