Character stone walls and tiled floor. Large wardrobe & cupboard,
It is just a few metres walk to to visit the many museums, churches, restuarants, bars, and shops within the picturesque and car (exhaust) free old town (parking available outside just 150-250 metres away). Or take the 30 minutes walk up to the top of the old fort with breathtaking views of the boka bay. The waterfront lined by yachts and boats is just 2 minutes walk and a little further brings you to Dobrota, with waterfront restuarants and swimming in the clear Boka Bay water. Buses or inexpensive taxi's can take you to historic and unspoilt Boka Bay villages (Prcanj, Perast), or further on to the more devloped Budva (with its own scenic old town) or to sandy and rocky beaches directly on the Adriatic coast (Jaz, Blue Horizons, etc.). A boat trip arouind the bay, and especially to the island wioth the church on is not to be missed. Altogether this UNESCO world heritage town and area is a dramatic, interesting and unforgettable area to experience.
Free unlimited apartment wifi usually available – network ‘Lidija’; passcode 0674995044. Excellent signal in left studio, usually adequate signal in right studio (best near door). When out and about, most local bars and restaurants also have free wifi - ask them for their codes.
While the apartment is very conveniently located close to Kotor attractions and facilities, the whole of Kotor old town is lively and can be noisy summer evenings. Though this apartment is quieter than most Kotor apartments (has shutters & double glazing), light sleepers or those who prefer quiet evenings in summer should consider staying/sleeping well away from Kotor old town e.g. Muo/Prcanj well away from restaurants/bars.
Parking Parking is not allowed within the old town itself (no car fumes!), but one can park for free nearby. Head away from old town with sea on your right, then turn right about 20 metres before the only roundabout and drive round (little road opposite the Roda supermarket car park and only ~250 metres from the apartment). Alternatively, if this is full I drive straight over the roundabout with the bay still on my right and park on the first available space on the left past the post office (but not in the taxi spaces with yellow lines!). I have never had any problems with car theft or damage in Kotor. On market/ festival days or weekend evenings you may have a little further to walk but you can always find spaces somewhere! Alternatively there are several attended pay car parks, the most convenient one being directly opposite the old town main gate (~150/200 metres walk from the apartment) and alongside the port/boat moorings, which currently charges ~90 cents per hour. There is another pay car park just outside the old town walls immediately on the Dobrota side of the old city about at a similar price.
Wifi router: Excellent signal in left studio (router is in cupboard) and adequate signal in most of right studio. Stairway up to apartments: Though apartments are excellent inside, the hall and stairway up to them sometimes have cats and there can be a unpleasant smell during the minute or so getting to and from the apartment. The apartment doors are reasonably airtight, so the apartments themselves should not smell at all unless you leave the front door open (in which case leave the 3 windows open for a few minutes!). The woman in the central apartment on the floor below (who feeds cats in this and nearby buildings) should and usually does clean the stairway approximately daily, but if there is any cat mess visible or stair cleaning needed, mention this to her friendly English speaking son who lives below the left studio who will sort matters or call Lidija who will get it sorted.

Unlimited Internet access and ADSL TV with flat screen. Centrally located close to all facilities and great base for exploring (and working if necessary!).
There is occasionally a cat in the shabby stairway (and elsewhere in Kotor!), but never in the apartment (no pets allowed!) so unsuitable for anyone highly allergic to cats.

Quality apartment in great location with many facilities as noted above.
The historic old town is improved (less noise & fumes( by being a car free zone, but pay car parks start from 150 metres away with free street parking from 250 metres distance - just a short walk away.

About the owner: British and married with 2 school kids now living near London. Enjoy travelling and outdoor activities. Accountant who has lived and worked worldwide (before kids!) and always wanted to own property away from the crowded wet UK and not too far from the sea somewhere sunny!
We fell in love with Montenegro on our first morning, waking up to views of the beautiful Boka Bay in the sunshine with old historic towns and villages, surrounded by steep mountains and a calm fjord, warm and clean enough to swim in. After meeting friendly Montenegrins, visiting the varied Adriatic coastline just 20 minutes away, the Durmitor National Park and breathtaking Tara Canyon just a few hours away, and meeting friendly locals, decided to buy in Montenegro, and have been returning regularly since. More recently started renting to help cover the larger than expected running costs.
Why the Owner Chose Budva: 1. Location: In a historic old walled city with no car fumes and close to bars, restaurants, banks and shopping, yet just a few minutes walk from the stunning Boka Bay water front, with Dobrota beaches nearby and easy access to public transport.
2. High Potential: Apartments were small needed total gutting rennovation (even removing floors and ceilings) but had great views from second floor (especially left studio). Ended up costing twice our estimates but were totally transformed with stone walls and quality bathrooms and kitchenettes.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: Entranceway and stairway are dingy and apartments small, but once inside, apartments are very well renovated and equipped (unlimited broadband, flat screen TV, full fitted kitchen, washing machine) and with good views form the windows (especially left studio) and comfortable sofa beds. Far better than most Kotor apartments and at a competitive rate.
