The house is located just seconds away from a famous cliff-side bar (perfect for watching the sunset) and a minute’s walk to a secret swimming hole where you can sunbathe and swim in the clear blue Adriatic Sea. To help you prepare for your trip, we've put together some information about Dubrovnik.
.:THINGS TO DO IN DUBROVNIK:.
If you can fit it into your schedule, give yourself at least a couple days to explore and enjoy one of the Med's most magnificent walled cities. That way you'll get to see how the town really lives and breathes.
The best time to visit is in the spring or early fall when the weather is generally sunny and there are less tourists about. But during peak season (June - September), the town gets more lively and you'll have a great time.
We will be happy to give you some insider tips and help answer any of your questions when you arrive, but here are a few key activities, we'd recommend:
WALK THE WALLS
This is a must. You just have to time it right. Plan on doing the walk early in the morning or early evening so that you avoid the cruise ship traffic. Otherwise, you may find yourself sweating and doing something that feels more like waiting in a line at Disneyland.
HIT THE WATER
A few meters from the guesthouse, there are two great cliffside bars where local youth also prove their mettle. You can go cliff-jumping into the clear blue Adriatic and then chill out on the rocks afterwards. If you have the time, you can also hop a small ferry from the Old Town Port to Lokrum island where the cliffs are a steeper and provide good photo opps to make your friends envious.
We can arrange kayaking trips for our guests. It's a great way to start the day and you'll get the chance to paddle around the Old Town and the nearby island of Lokrum where you'll find a secret cove and some of the clearest water you'll ever see.
.:COSTS IN DUBROVNIK:.
People are usually surprised by the costs in Dubrovnik. You may find it to be more pricey than you planned on. Accommodation costs inside the Old Town can be quite expensive and there are plenty of ways to spend your money. However, like most places, with a little insider knowledge, you can stick to your budget if you avoid the tourist menus and one-off restaurants, hit up drink specials, and prepare your own picnic lunches.
When you arrive, we'll give you a list of the places where we eat - good food, fair prices. In our quad rooms we have a basic kitchen so you'll be able to visit the nearby supermarket and open-air fruit and veg market and prepare your own meals.
All our rooms have a spare beds , just in case if somebody else will join you on your travel. One double and one triple room share the bathroom.
For those of you on a tight budget, you can always look for cheaper accommodation in private family houses outside the Old Town. Try to get as close to the Old Town as possible as some places that are just 'ten minutes away' are really up in the hills or at least thirty minutes walk or more. Just make sure to check the location and what's on offer as you may end up somewhere inconvenient and spending what you saved on bus or taxi fares and internet.
