Perks for the Parents

This 2-bedroom apartment overlooking the Adriatic is on an island an hour from Dubrovnik by ferry and has a lush fruit-filled garden and jacuzzi. Located on quiet car-free Lopud Island, it has views of the sea and romantic ruins from the terrace and is 5 minutes’ walk from the nearest beach. All guest are welcomed with a lemonade and Croatian coffee plus a homemade treat, and freshly picked vegetables and fruits wait for them in the villa. Lopud is known for having the best beaches in the local area. The large apartment shares a terrace and jacuzzi, but is otherwise private. It has a well equipped kitchen with dishwasher, and 2 bedrooms both with kingsize beds plus a lounge/diner with large sofa bed to sleep 2-3 additional children. The host is a tour guide and can help with any questions about the location, local area or logistics.

Why Kids Love it

Kids love the terrace, a 2,000m area of olive trees, orange trees, vegetables and Mediterranean vegetation home to small turtles. Under supervision, they can use the large outdoor jacuzzi, which easily fits 4. The hosts grow organic fruit and vegetables, and offer fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, grapes and figs to pick from the garden for meals and snacks. With its sandy beaches and no-car policy, the island is perfect for children of all ages. Note that there is less to do for teenagers - no nightlife etc. For those with younger kids, a crib, high chair, baby toys, baby bath and anything else you might need can be provided on request.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 5 days. The villa is on a small hill overlooking the bay, with a good number of steps up to reach it. The hosts can help to welcome you, transport luggage with a small electric car and otherwise make arrival easier. Pets welcome on request. Air conditioning, TV with satellite channels and DVD provided. High speed WiFi available throughout the house. A landlady, Fikreta, is available for all maintenance and weekly cleaning. Linens and towels are changed regularly. Beds and furniture meet high anti-allergy standards. There is a washing machine in the bathroom. Note that the bathroom has a shower, not a bath, but a baby bath can be provided. The hosts live next door and speak English, German, Italian and Japanese.

About the Location

The residence is on the island of Lopud, one of the Elaphite islands located northwest of Dubrovnik. It is known for having the most beautiful beach in the region, Sunj beach, and is a car-free island home to under 200 people. Lopud is reachable via ferry (50 minutes) from the port of Gruz in Dubrovnik, with ferries leaving every couple of hours. There are several restaurants, cafés, supermarkets, and essential stores on the island. Cars can be left in Trsteno or Brsečine, from where a ferry boat or a speed boat can be organised for you. The hosts can organize transportation to Lopud Bay at affordable prices on request. Dubrovnik airport is the entry point for international travelers.

Accommodation Details

This modern apartment has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and is on the ground floor of a villa. There is an open plan main area with kitchen with dishwasher, a large dining room and a lounge with sofa that converts to a sofa bed sleeping 2 adults or 3 children. There are 2 bedrooms, both with kingsize beds. A crib can be provided. The property has a balcony and a 50m private terrace with table and chairs, deckchairs, large barbecue, outdoor armchair plus outdoor shower. There is an outdoor jacuzzi on a shared lower terrace.

Style Notes

Bright and welcoming. The house has light-reflecting white walls, a blend of contemporary and vintage furniture and a wonderful terrace with views of the sea and of the ruins of Lopud’s Franciscan monastery. The monochrome kitchen has sea views. We love the main living space with its wicker bucket chair, and the palm tree and flower-surrounded terrace with jacuzzi.

Hi, I live between the island of Lopud and Dubrovnik in Croatia. My family has been a host for the past 50 years. We rent two 4 people apartments, one 6 people house and one room on the island of Lopud, and a 5 people apartment in Dubrovnik. Hope you will enjoy your staying :)

Unspoilt beaches and ruined fortresses

Reachable by ferry from Dubrovnik in under an hour, unspoilt, sun-drenched Lopud Island is a fantastic spot for a quiet vacation as a family. It boasts the best beach in the region, Sunj beach, a horseshoe shaped-bay ideal for kids with shallow water going out to 100m from shore. The island is largely unspoilt with few inhabitants, no cars and just a few romantic ruins and pine forests for local color. Speed boat trips around the bays, walks to old fortresses and days spent playing on the sand are the order of the day.
