About the property

Three room condo with the Ocean View in the Old town of Dubrovnik


We welcome you to our recently refurbished apartment in the Heart of the City of Dubrovnik. The apartment is situated less than 500 feet from the entrance of the historic Old Town- Stradun. It is a magnificent and enviable location to explore the city and its museums and beaches. There is not any need for costly and time-consuming transportation, as all attractions are accessible by foot.

The property is in the first row to the Adriatic Sea. You are one minute from one of Dubrovnik's most popular beaches, Beach Banje: you can go home to take a shower after every swim!

Completely renovated, this spacious apartment provides the essential mixture of comfort and convenience. There are two rooms with high, fresco, painted ceilings, a living room with a fully equipped kitchen and a comfortable bathroom. The views from the apartment are incredible. In front of you is the unobstructed view of the crystal-blue Adriatic Sea and island of Lokrum. In the evening, you can enjoy a glass of wine on the terrace overlooking the City and the Adriatic Sea.

Our apartment will provide you with a wonderful experience in exploring the city and giving you all needed comfort. Please read our guest comments to get a more flavor of the place.

The location of the apartment is in the most prestigious part of Dubrovnik, just a ten-minute walk from the Ploce Gate of the red-roofed Old Town. The original Dalmatian villa is adjoined to Hotels Excelsior and Argentina. As soon as you walk into the apartment, the incredible view of Lokrum island stops you in your tracks. The breathtaking views of the Adriatic stretch from the island of Lokrum round to the Dubrovnik’s photogenic old harbor. All around, our terrace with stone fences and secluded corners in which to sit – are teaming with your perfect glass of wine to enjoy the best view in the Med. Whether you’re sunbathing on Banje beach, dining on the terrace, lying on a sun lounger on one of the individual rocky outcrops nearby, or reading your book in the gardens, spectacular scenery follows you wherever you go.

About Vera Duplan

We are professionals who live in San Francisco and travel every year to Croatia.

Vera Duplan purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Vera Duplan chose Dubrovnik

The apartment overlooks the Old Town and is situated on the beach Banje. We were sold after seeing incredible views of the blue Adriatic and the City Old Walls from each window.

We hope you will enjoy our apartment and this beautiful city as we do.

The best part is that from the apartment we can reach the old city, restaurants, and beaches within a short walking distance. No need to hassle with cars and traffic.

What makes this apartment unique

This is the apartment in Dubrovnik with the best location within minutes from the beach and historical downtown. Next to two best hotels in Dubrovnik, Excelsior and Argentina. Unobstructed view to the beach, old town and famous Lokrum island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

5/5.Absolutely Sublime!

We have been staying in this apartment for 2 weeks and have no regrets that we booked it. Due to our lengthy stay, we were able to explore this beautiful city and concluded, there is no better place to rent in Dubrovnik. (Please do not make a mistake and book in an Old Town or something like ... only 250 steps... from ...) This location is unbeatable – their best hotel Excelsior is one street level down, 5minutes walk to their best public beach, 8-10 minutes walk to the old town. A view from windows or terrace is breath taking- in fact it was the best place in town to watch the firework on the 10th of July, which is an independence day for Croatia. It is funny, but true that adjacent house was selected to host the European presidents for celebration of an Independence Day. Through windows, you will see a beautiful Adriatic Sea, an island of Lokrum, various elegant cruise line ships and privately own yachts. The Royal Clipper mega yacht was there every week. Inside of apartment: lot’s of space, tastefully decorated, all appliances were working, TV with numerous channels, fast speed internet, clean and crisp linens and really comfortable beds. The owners of this place are trustworthy. If we were to rent in Dubrovnik again, we would pick the same place at the heart beat! Due to nature of my work, I travel constantly and have been staying in a numerous upscale and sometimes luxury hotels, worldwide – and this place was BETTER for me as I hope it will be for you and your family!

Best Apartment location in Dubrovnik!!

  • 4 of 5

We are two couples who recently stayed at the best apt.location in Dubrovnik!! To be able to walk into Old Town so easily is a real treat. The apt.itself is very comfortable and nicely setup for two couples. The main bed is a king size with a great view of town. The only concern we had was that the Internet was abit slow. We all really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend Vera's apartment. Can't wait to return!!

Excellent Location, Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed 6 nights in Vera's apartment and had the best time. Vera was very quick to respond to email and arranging our stay was a breeze. The apartment has everything you need with a full kitchen and a washer/dryer. The location cannot be beat, being just minutes from the Old City and Banje Beach where we enjoyed the sun and water a couple days. The only warning I would give is that there are a good number of stairs to get up to the apartment; however, if you're visiting Dubrovnik and plan to see the Old City you should be prepared to walk MANY steps during your stay. We absolutely loved getting up in the morning and be able to see the ocean. We cannot wait to return to Croatia, such a gorgeous place with extremely friendly people.

Fabulous apartment

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous apartment in the best location in Dubrovnik. It is a very short walk to the beach, the Old City and everything you need for a wonderful stay in Dubroovnik. The apartment is in a charming old building, with lots of space and a well equipped kitchen, plus the views are gorgeous! We loved our time there, would stay there again and highly recommend it!

Best location, fabulous apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a spacious apartment in the best location of Dubrovnik. Views were incredible from the apartment. Beds were comfortable. The only thing I didn't realize is that the patio is not accessible direct from the living space - you must go down outdoor stairs to get to the patio. (This is not ideal for families with younger kids but I don't think you will find many 2 bedroom apartments in this area and price range that have a connecting patio). We enjoyed dining in Old Town at night, walked the walls, and enjoyed the beaches. Do not recommend the Mostar day trip. As my husband said, "we drove 3 hours to see a flea market". But Dubrovnik did not disappoint!

Great Location and Very Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

As other reviewers mention, this apartment is in a great location. It was nice to be near both the Old Town and beaches. Banje is right outside the apartment, but we preferred a more secluded beach that was an easy 5 minutes walk away from town. The apartment was very comfortable. Not too many stairs (compared to other places) and comfortable furnishings and beds. We had a car with us for one day...would not recommend that as parking was very difficult.

Nice and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This was such a wonderful place to stay during our time in Dubrovnik! It was in a fabulous location, just a short walk to the old city and so close to Banje beach! Vera provided wonderful information prior to arriving at the apartment. It was definitely the highlight of our long vacation. Such a relaxed pace compared to France. I would definitely come back!
