Dear holiday maker, we are an Australasian couple who fell in love with Montenegro… so much so we decided to buy our dream holiday home and then get married here.It has been a dream come true. Perast speaks for itself, with the stunning wider Boka Kotor region having something to discover for everyone! We love it here and hope you will too…

Why Villa Perast Team chose Perast
Simply, we think the historic old Baroque town of Perast is the most beautiful place on the Montenegrin coast and so do so many others... just Google 'Perast'
What makes this Apartment unique
The Villa Perast Apartments are all sea facing with beautiful morning sun rises. The private terraces for Apartment Sachi and Siena are exceptional in size and position. In Juliette you get the lovely Juliette Balcony, where you can relax reading or taking in the view from the chaise longue while enjoying the elevated view. All apartments are spacious and airy. Villa Perast is ideally located 30m from the water and less than 20m from the nearest restaurant, with the local amenities and beach being only a 100m stroll away.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Okay property, in need of some TLC
The apartment is okay, slightly misleading from the description on the website. The small terrace (not large as stated) has no direct access from the apartment. It can only be accessed from the downstairs bedroom (which smells a bit damp) and out through the main door and up some steps, so impractical and a pain to keep carrying food to eat outside. The terrace needed a good weeding and a sweep. It was also marred by the intrusive loud extractor fan from the restaurant opposite the terrace. The 2 sunbeds were broken and there was also an outside light which wasn't working so were forced to light loads of candles so we could actually see, despite the promise of this being fixed, which wasn't!
Inside the apartment there were quite a few niggly things which could easily have been fixed and should have been. The toilet kept breaking and wouldn't flush. The internal freezer door was missing in the fridge and as a result the majority of our 100 euro shop of chesses, meats, fruits had to be thrown away as the contents of the fridge froze! The 2nd bedroom upstairs is divided with a temporary screen which isn't the most practical of solutions so I would say it really is a one bedroom apartment. It may sleep 9 as it says on the website but practically this would be impossible. The kitchen is a one person kitchen so felt very difficult and confined to cook in. The oven would never heat up properly so even melting cheese was a challenge!
On the whole I wouldn't recommend but I guess it was quite cheap!
We take all feedback seriously and we have now reviewed with the Agent you comments.
Firstly I would like to apologise for the light on the terrace not getting fixed. This was mishandled by the Agent and they are now better staffed to manage these types of issues.
Taking each point you made:
The terrace is 15square meters. By any standard this is not small. However, my agent informed me that you wished to use the 20sqm terrace belonging to Apt Sachi. Unfortunately this was not possible as I had other guests arriving in that apartment.
The sun lounges were not broken, so we have not instructed the Agency to show how to open and close them.
The weeds on the terrace are unfortunate and will be cleared up in the future.
The toilet button did get stuck, however you informed me that you were able to fix it, so I waste aware it was still an issue.
Not sure what happened to the freezer door, so will have that replaced. However, i do not have a freezer selected on the amenities so that the description was correct during your stay. I have never had complaints regarding the aircon units from the restaurant and personally have never experienced any problems with that. I can only assume there was a problem while you were there. Previous guests do not mention it.
Again apology for not rectifying the light bulb issue in time.
All the best
This apartment is in the heart of Perast yet in a private and quiet location just back from the main street, and conveniently located right next to our favourite restaurant Palace Jelena. Would highly recommend. We went to Pirate Bar every afternoon and used the beach, quite small but ideal for young children. We did a couple of boat trips from here and went to Kotor for the day. A great base to explore the area. Worth noting that one bedroom is downstairs with 2 double beds, the other bedroom containing a double and a single bed is next to the living room and kitchen, just separated off by a net curtain. This worked fine for us. Also it's impossible to park near the apartment, you have to park just outside the town which is only 5 mins walk.
A tranquil, stylish, safe home
My husband and I visited Perast as part of our hunny moon and it really was a welcomed stay. We were met by a very professional team that immediately made us feel welcome. Villa Perast is well situated, easy to access and well equipped. We would and have highly recommended. Thank you team Perast!
My first impressions was one of professional. . We were shown around the accommodation and given a really friendly and detailed introduction. The villa is light, airy, spacious and tastefully decorated.. With added luxury of a deep bath. We enjoyed our stay there very much and would highly recommend it to others.
We are very glad you enjoyed your time in Apartment Siena and Perast alike and look forward to seeing you there again in the future.

A perfect vacation!
An incredible property in one of the most beautiful places on the gorgeous Adriatic coast of Montenegro! We were so well taken care of - everything we needed was provided and so promptly that I really can't imagine a better service nor a more comfortable and beautiful place to stay. Our apartment Siena was spacious, private and very tastefully decorated, with the gorgeous Adriatic sea just steps away. A true "home away from home," the Siena apartment was a perfect place to both recharge our batteries with a restful vacation, as well as a great spot from which to explore the amazing beauty of the surrounding area and the wonderful historic town of Perast. My only "complaint" is that we could not stay longer - but, we do very much look forward to returning and making the Siena apartment our home again. Needless to say (though I will anyway), I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a fabulous vacation!
Value for money but some let downs
The apartment is in a stunning location and good restaurants dotted along the bay . Peaceful and upmarket . When we arrived the apartment smelt damp , probably as it had not been used for a while and this meant the sheets were also damp . This did improve when the weather got warmer during our stay and we left the windows open for air to circulate . We were also dissapointed that the owner did promise she would provide some cheap sun loungers but none were provided , so apart from sitting upright on the patio set , we couldn't really relax and enjoy the outside space. The apartment is also advertised as being an hour from Podgorica airport which is not correct as it is over 2 hours away . If we knew this beforehand we would not have booked this particular apartment . The final straw was when new occupants arrived upstairs and being an old building which has been converted , the noise was very intrusive . Walking across the floor sounded like a herd of elephants . Maybe our expectations were too high but we were disappointed but I suppose you get what you pay for !
Thank you very much for your feedback. We take all comments very seriously and try our best to rectify any issues, to ensure our guests have the best possible stay. Perast in very temperate and in June the weather conditions can be quite dramatic, sometimes causing stone buildings to create the conditions you experienced. We are very sorry for this but happy to hear the condition improved during your stay and in 2016 we will be installing a special air control unit which will eliminate this issue in the future. As for the seating issue, we do not normally have deck chairs available to guests as they are difficult to store. Had you contacted my Management Agent at the beginning of your stay - she would have gladly sorted this out. As for our guest upstairs, this is our first complaint of noise, and future guests will be reminded to be considerate. Best Regards.
The kiddie beach is 5 min walk from the property and accommodates a lovely beach that is child safe and not very deep. The Pirate Bar is a 2 min walk and is open from morning till night. The beach is part sand part rock, but has sun umbrellas and sun lounges for all day hire. Otherwise, reserve a seat at the Pirate Bar and go for a dip when ever you like. It’s magic here, especially during sunset...
Due to be developed in the next couple of years in Tivat
