About Kerry Nanji & Andrew Newman
We have owned the property since 2009. Bought as a holiday home after visiting the Kotor region in 2006 and experience some of the most beautiful and breath taking scenery of our lives. We both live and work in the UK and take regular holidays at the apartment. I live in the village of Burley, New Forest, Hampshire, UK. Kerry lives in Hertfordshire. Our agent Nicky in Montenegro will also make contact with you after booking to arrange details for arrival and any needs you may have such as airport transfers etc. Please do post your reviews after your stay on the Web site. We now accept on line bookings and card payments via HomeAway

Why Kerry Nanji & Andrew Newman chose Muo
Kotor Vista apartments enjoy some of the best views across the sea bay. Situated directly across from the old town of Kotor you can experience the views of the old town, the medieval wall that lights up at night and reflects like a mirror in the water. The first rays of sun light stream into the apartment in the morning as the sun rises over the mountain and stays until 2-3pm depending on the time of year. After that the spectacular views of the old town set against the towering mountain offer a sunset performance of colour changes from orange to deep red, giving way to a starlight sky
What makes this Apartment unique
We have tried to make the apartment 'a home, away from home,' focusing on good quality furniture, a great nights sleep with the extra deep mattresses and toppers, quality kitchen ware, Nespresso coffee machine (please bring your own pods) and a very high quality music and entertainments system. Dedicated internet connection. This top floor apartment enjoys uninterrupted double aspect views of the bay, standing more forward and with a deeper balcony than other apartments within the small complex. It also benefits from a rear balcony to the mountain behind.

Excellent apartment with stunning views and in a great location!
We would say this is one of the best positioned apartments in the Kotor View complex. It had by far the best views, was quiet and very well equipped.
A couple of days before we arrived we were notified of an electrical issue with the apartment, but the local agent (who was very helpful) found us a different apartment in the same complex for the first 2 nights until the issue was resolved. During our stay and on our return the owner communicated and offered to compensate us for the nights lost, and this was resolved very quickly and efficiently with him - very much appreciated.
Overall, the apartment is of a very high standard. The master bed was exceptionally comfortable, and all other amenities in the apartment in very good condition and worked perfectly. We particularly loved being able to sit on the balcony and enjoy the sun and views all day round. It's a great bonus having the pool here, so if you wish you can choose to relax here all day rather than venture off to find a beach.
The old town of Kotor is about a 15/20 minute walk along a busy stretch of narrow road (to start), and then has a pavement. We favored walking to the town and catching a (very cheap) taxi back, but also did this both ways and couldn't fault the service!
Overall would recommend the apartment without hesitation. If you are looking to base your self catered holiday around the Old Town of Kotor area (but not stay in the 'thick of it'), this is the place for you!
This is a lovely apartment with amazing views over the Bay of Kotor. It is situated on the opposite side of the bay from the old town, but only a 20 min walk, or a €2 Euro taxi ride, yes €2. We had a car which we collected at the airport but unless you intend to travel around a lot it is not necessary as taxis are so cheap and the apartment is only 15 mins max from the airport ( Tivat ).
The apartment is well stocked with all the essentials, kettle, toaster pans etc should you wish to eat in but again the prices in the locality are as cheap as you'll find anywhere in Europe. One real bonus was the bed, which was as comfortable a bed as we have stayed in for a long time.
There were plenty of sunbeds around the pool and it was rarely busy, pick your spot, even at 11am.
Our dealings with the owners were quick and efficient, as was our dealings with their agent in Montenegro, and don't worry about having to pay direct rather than through Home and Away, it makes it cheaper for us to visit this wonderful place
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It is much appreciated. Please do come back and stay with us again. We love the beds too. In fact we get a better nights sleep on holiday than we do at home. An important part of a holiday home and often under estimated when furnishing an apartment. We love going out for the evening with great food and wine. Then back to the apartment to enjoy music on the balcony through the quality sound system and watch the mountain lights reflecting on the water. Then a great nights sleep! Andrew & Kerry
Fantastic view to die for!
It was a little stressful trying to meet this apartment's agent as we only got a message that his phone was out of service and no-one knew who he was at the pre-arranged meeting point, making us think that we had been scammed! A kind Montenegro lady got hold of him on her phone, a huge relief for us. I would suggest that holiday makers arrange to meet him at an arranged time as he said that the UK mobiles often don't work in Montenegro.
The apartment itself was beautiful with a fantastic view. It was so lovely sitting on the balcony watching the cruise ships, canoes and boats in the day time and Kotor lights at night. The highlights of our holiday was driving up to Lovcen for the fantastic views of the mountains, canoeing on the fjord, walking up the steps behind Kotor, having a look around Porto Montenegro at the extremely huge and expensive yachts, visit to Perast and the Lady of the Rocks, lazing by the pool with that fantastic view, and boating on Lake Skadar to see lots of wild birds including pelicans.
We didn't like the look of Budva as it looked very built up and too busy.
The apartment itself had most things that we needed. You do need to buy things like dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid etc as none of it is provided. There were no swimming pool towels or gowns on arrival, we had to contact the agent who brought them a couple of days later. There were plenty of sun loungers around the pool and there was always one for us. There are plenty of little coves to swim in, though not many beaches.
Our biggest disappointment with the apartment was that the DVD was broken on arrival. We were at the apartment for two weeks, but the owner decided not to replace it whilst we were there or have it mended! We had brought a couple of box sets with us to watch in the evenings as you can only get BBC news channel on the TV, so we're bitterly disappointed at his decision. On return from our holiday I emailed him, but he did not reply!
Don't let this put you off this apartment though, hopefully it would have been mended by now, the apartment is fantastic, we would highly recommend it. Relax and Enjoy!
Thanks for the review and feedback. Yes the marantz blue ray player is now fixed. It's a £1000 piece of kit with high powered amplifier to drive the separate Monitor speakers so just buying a stand along DVD player would not amplify through the speakers and the high fidelity music / iPod facility would have been lost. The DVD draw was Jammed due to two DVD being inserted. Our apologise that this was out of action for your stay. Nicky (our agent) did try to get it booked into a chap in budva to get it fixed that week but he was away.
Thank you for your understanding and your kind words about our apartment and the detailed review. Gowns and beach towels should have been provided and we will replace these items on our next visit. They have tendency to get lost!

'Try writing a review without mentioning the view'
This was our second stay at Kotor Vista, although our first time in D5. For us the position at the top of the building gave this apartment the edge. It is good to be unconnected to neighbouring balconies, and of course 'The View' (there. I went and mentioned it) is enhanced by the height. Some reviewers disliked the stairs, but this was simply not an issue for us as four averagely fit adults.
The photos are a very accurate representation of the property, and all the facilities were of an excellent quality, notably the sound system which we made good use of. Just to mention that the air con in the second bedroom doesn't function properly but we coped okay without it. Personally, without getting super picky, I would find it very difficult to fault theapartment. However I would say that it would have been helpful to have been told that we needed to make a 150 euro deposit on arrival. I'm sure this is somewhere in the small print, but unfortunately we don't have a powerful enough magnifying glass:)
Some have said that a car isn't necessary to stay here, but in our experience, as people who choose to get out and see the area, we felt it was essential. There are some lovely hidden 'Beaches' on the Lustiche peninsula, for which you need a car and a strong nerve to reach, the roads being somewhat tricky. Also we went up to the Lovcen national park, which is certainly worth the car rental. A fun thing to do is to take kayaks out from Kotor town. Look out from the apartment window to a big sign saying Primorac - the kayak hire place is on the beach to the right. It's inexpensive and very well run - a great way to see more of the Boka.
In short, we loved it, would most certainly return, and have already heartily recommended it to friends.
A Truly Great Place To Stay
We had stayed in this group of apartments the year before and had a great holiday but we had heard while staying there that this particular apartment was the best one in this development. It also came with 2 very good bicycles, which is good for us being a cycling family. If you have 16 year-old daughters it is a very safe place to stay as you can happily let them go by themselves into Kotor, which is close by at any time of the day (except late at night).
There was everything you could possibly need in this apartment and it was extremely clean. The photos do not do it or the view justice. The beds, pillows and bed linen are of a high standard and fantastically comfortable. There is an excellent sound system, which you can watch films through much to my daughters delight. I could sit on the balcony for hours watching the boats come in and out while feeling very relaxed.
This was our 9th visit it Montenegro and this is the best place so far we have stayed with our children and we have already booked to stay here again next year.
I have seen other reviews about this apartment saying that the steps would be too much for someone ill. So I thought I would mention that I had just started to recover after being very ill and having an operation. I found all the steps very useful in starting to get me back onto the road to recovery, though there are quite a lot of them.
What can I say! Absolutely perfect in every way. We only got home yesterday after staying for two"baking hot" weeks in your superb apartment. The view took your breath away & we enjoyed both breakfast & pre dinner drinks on the balcolny. We did have a hire car for the whole time & did much travelling around & even stayed up in the mountains near Zabljak for one night & drove down the Tara kanyon which was fantastic. The bikes were an absolute joy & we got a lot of use out of them cycling around both sides of the bay & stopping for a swim & drinks at various times. The highlight has got to be Monty B which we were lucky enough to sail on twice. We did a sunset cruise on our first Sunday & then Katie & Tim (the owners) managed to fit us in with our friends who were staying in Dabrota, during our second week. It was a truely amazing experience & Katie & Tim are a delightful couple & were perfect hosts.
Although we were out & about most days , it was so nice having such a wonderful apartment to come back to each evening plus extremely comfy beds to give you a perfect nights sleep.
Many, many thanks for the use of fabulous apartment that is extremely well equiped, & we would definately recommend your property. Kotor is an amazing hidden gem!
Wishing you continued success
Liz & Graeme Brown
Dear Liz & Graeme
Thank you for your your wonderful review it is most welcome, your enjoyment is evident from
what you have written. Your sailing trip on Monty B sounds amazing. Do you have any more details of this, as I am sure other guests would also embrace this experience?
Within walking distance around the spectacular bay is the old town of Kotor a UNESCO world heritage site. Here you can enjoy historic and cultural treasures of this medieval town. The old city walls spiral up the mountain and make for some breathtaking walks & views of the bay. Kotor also offers a unique shopping experience with many individual boutique shops. Foodies among you, can enjoy the excellent cuisine and local wines along the waterfront or in the narrow cobbled streets and piazzas of the old town. Small pebble beaches surround the sea lake. Day trips to Perast, Hecig Novi, Budva, Becici & Sveti Stefan make for some good days out. There is excellent skiing in the winter months at Kolasin and Zabljak 170 km away. The 4 national parks, Lake Skadar, Lovcen, Biogradska Gora and Durmito, offer a paradise of flora and fauna to around 280 bird species. Durmitor with its impressive Tara Canyon is the second deepest canyon in the world & is renowned for its White Water Rafting.
