Apartments Marivo Jul 01, 2010
Came across this place while browsing for somewhere to stay in Dubrovnik. Had to be booked by email and a deposit (€60) sent by Western Union.
Looked simple enough to find, as maps show it on a street running off the side of the port and coming out at the other side onto a main road. Maps lie, it does neither, and I would suggest anyone stayine here gets a taxi to the apartments first time and get your bearings from there (better heading down the hill ;) ). Took us over an hour, and up some killer stairs to find the place, even though we knew we were in the right area :(.
Seemed to be confusion when we arrived, as the old couple running it weren't expecting us. From what we gathered the son does the letting from Zagreb, and it didn't take long for the mother to get the sheets and towels into the apartment.
That apart the place was fine. A strange set up with the doors, makes it look as if the apartments can be turned from 3 one bedroom apartments, to a two and a one or even a three bedroom set up.
We had two bedrooms, one double and two singles, and two bathrooms,which was great. Had a well equipped kitchen and table and chairs to use.
Living room are had a settee, and TV with all the international channels. Had free secure wifi as well, and the password had been left ready for us to log in.
Had a large raised terrace outside, where really we spent most of the time we were awke there out on it. From the end of the terrace you could look down over the water to the port at Gruz, and see the bridge out of town.
Once we'd settled in, we noticed folk coming back up the hill carrying shopping and set out to find the nearest supermarket which was just at the end of the road 5 minutes walk away. There was a really good restaurant just there as well,the Buono, which I'll review seperately.
Was just a 5 minute walk up to the main pedestrian precinct in Lapad, and there are a few beaches around there. Just before you come to the pedestrian area, you'll find the bus stop to take you into the old town on the number 6 which runs every 10 minutes, so nice and handy.
When leaving it took us 30 minutes to walk to the main bus station at the port.
