Great villa with beautiful terrace views
The villa is right opposite the dive centre in Mlini. The views from the front terrace are wonderful particularly when the sun sets, often an amazing deep red glow. The pool is in a lovely garden at the back so you have shade or sun in different parts of the villa at all times of the day. The 4 bedrooms are clean and adequate if not luxurious. Aircon in some of them is a bit noisy, particularly when on full blast.
We hardly used the lounge area as we spent all our time in the outside rooms and terraces. the dive centre bar occasionally had music playing until about midnight but was not too intrusive in the bedrooms. Overall a delightful character villa in a nice location with wonderful sea views.
The villa was PERFECT for our group of 6 - 4 adults and two teenagers. The location is terrific - right by the sea, and walk to restaurants, shopping either direction. Also just a short trip to Old Town Dubrovnik. Katarina is a great host, made sure we had everything we needed and checked in with us throughout the week. It was nice to relax on the terrace - or by the pool every day! Best part of the whole villa was the tortoises!! Feeding them was the highlight of our day.
This was the perfect place for our family reunion!
Fantastic! Great host, great location, great house
It is hard to know where to start: the town of Mlini is charming, with very nice people and good restaurants. The property is located just across a small beach, walking distance (as most beach front Mlini) to restaurants and other beaches. It has all the comfort and amenities of a modern house, but with character and charm. All four bedrooms have sea view (no fighting among my kids to select the "best bedroom"); the view from the terrace is spectacular (very relaxing when I worked in the early hours of the morning, taking advantage of the time difference with the US); the garden is beautifully well kept; the swimming pool and BBQ grill are strategically located to provide both a nice view of the sea, and safety if you have small kids (you have to get up some stairs, giving you enough time to catch a runaway grandson!). Even though it was in mid-Jul, we didn't run the a/c all the time, as the walls provided isolation from the heat, allowing us to open the doors/windows and enjoy the nice Adriatic breeze.
The property is kept impeccable: they do the swimming pool and the garden twice a week, and is delivered to you with all the essentials (including beach towels) for you to enjoy your stay.
Lastly, but certainly not least, Katarina was a very grateful host: she help us getting the transportation from the airport, had a delicious apple strudel welcoming us, and was always available to assist us when needed (she cam quickly when one of my sons locked his safe box, contacted a catering for a gathering we had for the final of the FIFA World Cup).
I would love to return to this property in the near future!
beautiful property in a wonderful location
As soon as we arrived we were absolutely delighted with the villa. Katarina was very welcoming. The villa itself is beautiful, comfortable and there is a view from every room. What we loved the most was the terrace right outside the kitchen. We spent a good deal of time there eating all of our meals there and enjoying the shade in the heat of the day. The gardens are stunning and the pool area is just fabulous too. It was definitely the best holiday accommodation I have experienced for a large family group. I highly recommend it
Perfect Villa, fabulously situated.
We loved Villa Mar so much that we almost don't want to tell you how lovely it was ... and keep it all to ourselves.
Katarina and her Mother did a wonderful job of preparing this beautifully maintained and well-equipped villa for our stay. There were fresh flowers, wine, milk and home-made apple strudel upon our arrival and they ensured that we had everything we needed to make our stay happy and relaxing. The layout of the Villa is great for groups of different couples who may want a little space to themselves and it is great to separate the bedroom space from the downstairs living area with the external stairs so that those who wake early or are late to bed don't disturb others.
We miss the stunning views across the bay from the terrace and the pool area and can't wait to go back again to enjoy them. The tortoises are fun too and you'll quickly fall in love with them.
The situation of the villa itself is just perfect, being a 15 minute car or water taxi ride into Dubrovnik Old City to enjoy sight seeing or nightlife but there are also plenty of great restaurants locally in which to eat and a very welcoming bar for relaxing drinks nearby.
Katarina is a great host and ensured we had everything in place before our arrival, including arranging car transfers from the airport to the villa. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay .... we will be back again and again and again!
Residence Mar is located in a small town of Mlini, situated half way between the city of Dubrovnik (8 km) and the airport Dubrovnik (10 km).
