The apartment is clean and the lovely garden and pool are well cared for, a 20 min bus ride from old
Our hosts at Mokosica, Anna and Mihael, welcomed us warmly the evening we arrived, sharing with us their homemade wine on the veranda under fruiting grape vines. Our hosts clearly enjoy meeting their guests and made a number of very helpful local sightseeing recommendations to us. The property is conveniently located directly across the street from the bus stop and less than a half hour to the old town of Dubrovnik. We preferred being somewhat remote to the intensity of the city, and there are several good walkable restaurants near to the apartment. The property is on a well-traveled street, so traffic noise may be an issue for some, but did not disturb us. The apartment is clean and the lovely garden and pool are well cared for. There is a lovely view to the marina from the upstairs balcony.
A quiet place to stay
Great welcome from Milos and Anya..and Charlie the 🐕. Everything was as described on the site. Lovely pool, lots of very good local restaurants and bars in easy walking or just a short bus ride away. The local wine is really good and compliments the local food. Everything we had was fresh and locally grown.
The apartment was perfect for us, 2 couples. We were diving with the Blue Planet school, 20mins drive, or visiting the city, 30 mins on the bus that stopped outside the property and runs every 20mins
We will be back
Modern, comfortable and as expected
The hosts were friendly and helpful and generally informative. However on the sporting facilities it mentioned mountain biking and cycling and when asked they were not able to give us any information on either of these pursuits.
A regular bus service meant we were able to go into the old city whenever we wanted.
The weather was great and we were able to sit out in the evening and enjoy the pool during the day.
A very high standard, immaculate residence.
We stayed at Villa Celenca for eleven nights in September. The owners welcomed us warmly and were attentive to every need we had. The house is lovingly cared for with lots of fruit growing in the gardens plus the owners make their own wine from their grapes and generously gave us a bottle which was indeed delicious. The apartment was outstandingly clean and comfortable. Air-conditioning was very welcome as the weather was around 27 to 29 degrees every day. Bed linen and towels are provided. There is a fridge, hob, kettle, pans and utensils plus a mop, brush and dustpan. Guests should bring, or purchase when there, their own pool towels, toiletries, including hand soap, shower gels, shampoos plus kitchen necessities such as washing up liquid.
The apartment is in a quiet location with five restaurants/bars in the vicinity. The nearest is ‘Rosa Bianca’ which provided excellent Italian food at a very reasonable price. ‘Bógó’ restaurant, overlooking the inlet, is about a ten minute walk away. This is a little more expensive but worth it. The menu is varied; we can recommend the fresh fish, tuna and the beef. There are two pizza restaurants in the village of Mokosica (above the apartment) which are basic but good for the money, plus a bar which serves a limited menu down by the sea edge just a little further to the right as you leave the house. There are a few small supermarkets around the area plus bakeries where you can buy freshly baked warm bread in the morning.
The bus stops across the road. The journey into Dubrovnik centre takes between twenty to thirty minutes depending on how busy it is. All journeys cost 15 kunas if purchased on the bus, or 12 kunas if purchased from a ticket kiosk - these can be found at various places, the main ones being the bus station and Pile Gate stops.
The apartment has a stunning view of the inlet where you can watch the ships and yachts come and go whilst sitting on on the large balcony. The pool area was superb for relaxing and enjoying a swim in beautiful surroundings.
The owners are warm and welcoming and are available to help whenever needed but are careful not to intrude. They made our stay extremely enjoyable and we hope to visit again very soon.
Many thanks for your great rating, I hope we see your again.
Excellent in all aspects!
We had a fabulous holiday at Mihael and Anya's apartment. It was clean and had everything that you needed with a lovely balcony too. The swimming pool is quite small but perfect for a quick dip. The gardens around the apartments are well cared for and beautiful. There are plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas. The apartment is a little way away from central Dubrovnik but the bus service is excellent. It runs every 20 minutes until around 2am. We did not need a car as you can walk to the supermarket and the bus service is very efficient. You very quickly get the hang of them. Buy your tickets at the bus kiosks for 12 kuna or 5 kuna on the bus. There is a pizza restaurant very close which is superb and you can also easily walk (35 mins) or bus down to the Marina where the is another restaurant Bistro Izvor which is amazing.
Anya and Milo were great hosts. They live in the bottom floor apartment so are always around for any advice. They are really friendly and we often shared a home made sherry with them. My daughter had her 18th birthday while we were there and they gave her a present and made her a cake which we enjoyed with them. They have an adorable dog called Charlie who is just gorgeous.
Dubrovnik is a fabulous place there is lots of things to do and the beaches are stunning, really clear water and very warm. We spent 16 nights there and were never bored.
I could not recommend this apartment or Dubrovnik high enough.
Many thanks for your great rating. I hope we will see each other again.
Clean, good location may not be ideal for children
Very clean, great location, easy to get the bus. Great restaurant really cheap, good food nearby. We spent most of our days out and about, owners live in the building and are lovely, we had homemade cake and wine. There are lots of rules especially regarding use of the pool which families with children may struggle with especially if you have days in by the pool. No splashing/jumping in!!
Villa Celenca is located in Rijeka dubrovacka (marina of Dubrovnik), 6 km away from the old town, 5 km from the bus station, 25 km from the airport and 10 m from a bus stop. The connection with the city center and the beaches in Lapad is provided by a regular bus line. The buses leave every 20 minutes.
Villa Celenca is located near the marina, which is a nice place for walks and a very interesting place for sailboat, motorboat and yacht.
