“Great base to explore Dubrovnik”
Reviewed 9 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

people found this review helpful

We stayed for a week in Viola and it was a great base to explore Dubrovnik from. Only a short walk to the cable car, the old town and the Pile Gate where the buses to Babin Kuk and Gruz run from. 
There are a lot of steps down to the old town but it would be difficult to avoid these in Dubrovnik. 
The apartment is close to the owners home, but also has privacy. It is compact but newly renovated, very clean and comfortable and we had everything we needed during our stay. Matko was very reliable and organised our airport transfers, answered emails promptly and was very helpful in recommending things to see and do during our stay.

“Fantastic apartment, beautiful city.”

We stayed at Apartment Viola for a week at the end of July. I have to admit I was tentative about booking with Tripadvisor Rentals, but I needn't have worried.

From the beginning, Matko answered my numerous emails without fail, then organised a taxi from the airport for us.

The apartment was as described, modern and very clean, with the added bonus of a washing machine. We loved the view from the terrace, we also loved seeing Julia, the apartment's tortoise.

The apartment is a 5 minute walk from the Pile gate, and is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the Old Town. It is in a peaceful part of town, and by the end of the week I could walk back up the 150 stairs without stopping!

It was the perfect place for us to explore Dubrovnik and the surrounding islands, and we really felt at home there.

Thank you Matko and Davor, we hope to return one day, when it's a few degrees cooler!

We enjoyed our stay at apartment Viola. It was spacious and clean- equipped with washer and kitchen. It's also in a great location- 5 minute walk to Old Town. Matko was a welcoming host and provided us with information for sight seeing, transportation, restaurants, etc. We would highly recommend to others!

“Look no further, you have found the right place.”
Reviewed 14 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This has been the best trip in my life, thanks to the apartment's owner Matko.
The apartment itself is very nicely decorated with a fine choice of furniture and paint and choice of floor tiles...everything! There are also chairs and table facing the sea if you just want to enjoy the sun. You actually live just next to Matko and his family, so if there is anything you need, you could just go over and ask them (Matko and his brother speaks very good English).
It is also very clean, and it is near to the old town, just 7-10 minutes walking away. Some steps are indeed required, but not a problem for us at all.

I want to emphasize that it was Matko who perfected our trip.

Our flight arrived late at the Dubrovnik airport due to delay for 4 hours (by late I mean 1am in the night!)
We had previously arranged with Matko for a taxi from the airport to his apartment, but given it was so late in the night the driver had retired from his day already. We were really worried when we arrived at the airport how we were to get to the apartment.
But once we were at the arrival hall of the airport, Matko was in sight holding my name on paper. Indeed he had asked his friend to drive to get us since he knew our flight was delayed. And let me remind you again, it was 1 am in the night!

Apart from that, he also helped us arrange car rental at a local hotel since we wanted to drive to Montenegro and Bosnia for 2 days, and even with some last minute changes in the car rental plan he was very willing to help us arrange with the car rental company.

That aside, he also helped us arrange free parking at a local cafe and we saved 200 kuna from parking at a public garage.

You can feel Matko is very sincere and dedicated in making his guests happy, and I would like to highly recommend his apartment to all travelers who are interested in staying Dubrovnik. I am definitely renting this place again on my return.
