About the property

Bright studio apartment with double bed, sofa bed, 1 full bathroom. Sleeps 2+2.

As the name suggests, Aerie Apt 1 is perched high on a hill above Dubrovnik, offering stunning views of the Old Town, the Adriatic Sea, and Lokrum Island. Guests of this studio apartment may enjoy the views from either their own private balcony or a large shared terrace. Amenities include air conditioning, satellite TV, wireless Internet, kitchenette, coffee maker, kettle, hairdryer, sofa bed, baby cot on request, and parking.

Old Town may be reached in 10-15 minutes by foot, but the return trip will take longer as it requires a climb of nearly 300 stairs. Fortunately, taxis from Old Town are plentiful and affordable, and for guests arriving by rental car there is free street parking just 3 flights of stairs below. Your friendly host goes out of her way to make sure her guests have everything they need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. The combination of spectacular views, spotless accommodation, and superior hospitality have made Aerie a favorite for visitors to Dubrovnik!

About the villa: Aerie Apt 1 is situated in a residential villa that is comprised of 3 studio apartments and 3 double rooms, each of which has its own private entrance to ensure guests' privacy. It is located on the top floor of the villa just 3 flights of stairs above street level. There is only one other apartment on the same level, a nearly-identical studio apartment next door. In addition to a private balcony, there is a large shared terrace with a table and chairs for each of the studios. On the terrace guests can relax and enjoy breathtaking views of the Adriatic Sea and the Old Town below.

About the neighborhood: The elite residential neighborhood of Ploce is highly coveted for its spectacular sea views and its proximity to Old Town. It is also extremely quiet--a feature that is appreciated by residents and guests alike. Grocery markets, cafes, restaurants, shops, and the famous Banje beach can be found in/near the Old Town which is just 10-15 minutes' walking distance away. However, the return trip will take longer as it involves a climb of over 300 stairs. Fortunately, taxis from the Old Town are plentiful and affordable, costing around 40 kuna (about 6 euro) each way.

Guestbook comments from the manager

“We had a wonderful time in the Aerie Apt 1, (mum, dad and 2 teenagers). It was a lovely, clean apartment. Dijana and her family could not have been more helpful and the big glass of wine on our arrival close to midnight after a hairy drive on the D8 coastal road was very welcome. The 300 or so steps up from the old town are worth the effort as the views from the apartment balconies are stunning. Had ice cream almost every day but still managed to lose weight on holiday thanks to those steps. The use of the washing machine was a great help.”

Tidy studio. Great view and lovely hosts.

  • 4 of 5

If you don't mind the stairs this apartment is a good find. Away from the busy streets but just a 5 minute walk to the gate to get you to Old Town, and a small grocery store is just a minute walk. And the view is spectacular. You can hear the choirs in old town at night from the apartment and the church bells. Dijana and her family are lovely hosts.

Amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancée and I simply loved the apartment. It was very clean, modern and comfortable. Although pictures don't do justice, everything was exactly as advertised and pictured on website. The kitchenette had everything we needed to prepare quick meals. The breathtaking panoramic view from our balcony was mesmerizing. We loved waking up to the view, have our breakfasts on the balcony and sip on our coffee/tea looking at the sea. The owner and her family were fantastic hosts. They helped us with anything we needed. Their hospitality took us right back to our childhoods making us feel right at home. Thank you.

Wonderful view of the old city

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for your assistance in locating the type of apartment we were looking for in Dubrovnik. We were very pleased with our stay at the Aerie: Apt 2. The owner Dijana was very welcoming and most helpful during our five day stay. We loved the apartment with the great views of the old city and cool terrace. The many stairs from the old city were not a problem and the location above the Ploce gate was very convenient. We would certainly recommend this apartment and the service of the Dubrovnik Apartment Source was excellent. Questions by email were answered promptly. The website information is accurate. The airport transfer service was reliable and professional. A great solution to finding an apartment in Dubrovnik – thank you. Susan, Canada

Outstanding View of Old Town

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this great apartment for 3 days in early May. The apartment was great and had everything we needed and even a private parking space!! The apartment sits up high and has a fabulous view of Dubrovnik Old Town. It is just about 1/4 mile walking distance to the town via many steps. It's an easy walk down, but a bit harder walking up the steps, but there is also the option of a return taxi ride.

The owner was great and brought us coffee cake on arrival and also Turkish coffee every morning. I would definitely recommend this apartment and hope to visit again!!

Amazing view and location!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, you will not find a better view of the old town Dubrovnik and waking up with this view from the private balcony is priceless. The walk into old town is only about 10 minutes downhill. The walk from the old town back to the apartment is much more strenuous and all uphill. However, if you did not walk so far uphill you would not have the amazing views of old that motivated us during our uphill climbs. The owner arranged for transport from the airport, gave us a beer upon our arrival, and told us where the closest market was and where the best restaurants were located. Myself and my new bride had a wonderful time in Dubrovnik ("the Pearl of the Adriatic"), which was by far our favorite city of all the cities we visited in Croatia (Split, Trogir, Hvar town, Seget Donji). Thank you Dijana!

Dubbed “the pearl of the Adriatic” by George Bernard Shaw in the 1930s, Dubrovnik is popular with visitors from all over the world. With its uniquely preserved medieval walls, brilliant sunshine, translucent waters and dramatic mountains, the Dubrovnik Riviera is a unique holiday experience that lives up to its reputation as a premier destination. Ideal for those who want to relax and sunbathe by the clear warm waters of the Adriatic, and if you’re feeling more energetic there is the magnificent Old Town to discover, or you can take longer trips on land or sea.

Ploce is an elite residential neighborhood just outside of Dubrovnik's Old Town and is very popular among visitors to Dubrovnik. Its position high on a hill ensures some of the most spectacular views of the Adriatic sea. Old Town can be reached in 10-15 minutes by foot, but the return trip usually takes longer as it involves an uphill climb. But the serene atmosphere and magnificent views make the climb well worthwhile.
