About The Owner

I am Doda and I am from Dubrovnik. Born and raised. I have spent almost all of my life in the city and I love Dubrovnik. My hobby is taking care of my beautiful garden, which is lush and full of subtropical plants.I love to watch my garden grow.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1900

Why The Owner chose Dubrovnik

Me and my son Alberto live in an historic stone mansion located in my favorite area of Dubrovnik (Pile) and I believe that it is the best place to stay in Dubrovnik.We rent the bottom two floors and live on top floor. Really enjoy meeting people from different countries and listening to their stories and experiences. I hope to continue doing this for as long as possible. When I invite people into my home I supply them with the comfort that I would appreciate when traveling. I also make my lists of local finds and suggestions for my guests as to make the experience here in the city comfortable.

Gorgeous property in quiet area of town, yet only 5 mins walk to Pile Gate

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious, clean and attractive apartment with lovely terrace overlooking garden. The beds are comfortable, good showers and very well equipped kitchen for cooking if you are not eating out. Air conditioning worked well.

Dobrila was very welcoming and friendly.

We would definitely stay in Dobrila's property again and highly recommend it.

Dobrila’s apartment is beautiful and comfortable and very centrally located. The home is well equipped and an easy walk to the Old City. Dobrila is a lovely host. She welcomed us and made us feel very comfortable. I would love to return and stay another week someday.

Close to Pile Gate

  • 4 of 5

At the rear of Hilton hotel up steep steps so must be fit enough to get your luggage up and down. Also no parking and really expensive at the garage.

However the accommodation was really handily placed for the old town and as we had the ground floor apartment, we had the lovely terrace and garden with views. We chose this apartment as it had two bathrooms and for its location. Apartment had everything we needed and was nice and quiet. Dobrila ensured we had everything we needed. When our air con stopped working, it was attended to immediately. Beds were comfortable, large lounge with full kitchen. However you have to pay for the apartment direct to the owner and this incurs two lots of bank charges, one when pay the deposit and the other when pay the balance. A €50 deposit is also payable with the deposit and this was refunded to me in the day we left.

Beautiful charming apartment in the hills

  • 5 of 5

Three of us recently spent 2 weeks in Croatia. The highlight of the trip was our 3 nights in Dubrovnik in Dobrila’s 2 bedroom-2 bath main floor apartment. It contained the charm of original tile floors, stone walls yet had modern well equipped kitchen and baths, which are important when traveling. We particularly enjoyed having a glass of wine or coffee on the flower surrounded terrace, A perfect retreat from the hustle of old town, yet only a 5 minute walk from the action. We would definitely go back again.

The apartment was spotless and quiet and Dobrila was available for help if needled.

Spacious clean apartment. Had a real European feel. Lovely private garden. 5-10 min walk from pile gate. Some stairs to get to street, so not good if mobility issues if have to carry own luggage. Lovely helpful landlord. Let us store our luggage at checkout when we had late ferry.
