Topverblijf Dobrota aan de baai van Kotor
Schitterende lokatie, ideaal als uitvalsbasis voor bezoek Montenegro. Perfecte communicatie met de eigenaars via whatsapp. Rustig gelegen met zwemmogelijkheden aan de baai.
Dieses schöne Haus bietet alles für einen erholsamen Urlaub. Was noch im Haus fehlt, wird blitzschnell von Jules besorgt. Bei uns war es der große Tisch für die Terasse am Meer.
Immersed in Montenegro
The communications right from initial enquiry could not have been better.
The description of the property was wholly accurate and once there we felt we were living in a traditional Montenegro home. This is not the place for you if you want contemporary clean lines- but if you want to feel a tiny bit local it is perfect from the sealed brick flooring and the stone walls in the living area to the wrought iron balcony overlooking Kotor bay; staying here felt as though we were part of the community.
We loved the walk into Kotor and the market and whilst we didn’t cook much in the evenings as there are some lovely restaurants in walking distance, lunchtimes were filled with fruit, salad and local meats and cheeses.
This is not the quietest of locations - and sadly the hotel a few hundred metres along the road thinks it is fine for everyone to hear their music late afternoon. However the buzz of normal local life adds to the atmosphere and we loved having local neighbours. The sea was warm, very salty and very buoyant - so easy to take a quick dip when getting over heated. I think it is only ten steps from the door! Would we stay again, oh Yes.
Nice Location but some downsides
We stayed for one week in the house. Communication and check in details went very good via Whats App. The location of the house is stunning, various restaurants in walking distance. There are cars and motorcycles driving up and down the road in front of the house during daytime so you have to be quite careful when you cross the street. Unfortunately we experience some downsides:
- the dishes weren't cleaned properly
- the linen of two beds in the bunkbed weren't clean
- we had a construction side next door (it is a double house, so it is really next door) and we weren't told by the owner in advance. The noise started at 7.30 am in the morning of the first day and after complaining to the owner they started at 8:45 am. The neighbours stopped working at 8 pm. So we couldn't really stay inside or outside the house during daytime in our holidays. The owner just told us that she couldn't change it. If we had known this in advance we would have cancelled the reservation, but the owner didn't tell us although the previous tenant also complained about the noise. Nor were we offered a discount.
We realize the problem with these guests were unfortunately noisy neighbours which also overlapped with the previous guest last few days.
Our neighbor, who had not informed us of his project before hand, had one worker in his house fixing his electric cables. We communicated with the neighbor on the second day and he agreed to start at 9 am and end at 7 pm and said it would take a few days. This was Monday evening. We communicated to guests again on Wednesday about renting the lower apartment for a few days and offered them a discount. Then on Saturday evening, they communicated with us and informed us that the worker had not stopped as discussed, and been making noise on Saturday. I phoned the neighbour immediately, now for the 3 rd time and he told me the builder had stopped and completed his work that day.
As a property owner I will try my best to solve a problem or rectify something to make your holiday as enjoyable as possible. I unfortunately I cannot solve all problems which arise.
Regarding the linen and dishes, all linen is sent to the laundromat and the dishwasher does our dishes. If anything is amiss, please feel free to contact us and we will happily replace a sheet, send the cleaner to load the dishwasher or rectify anything or replace something you need.
Unfortunately we also realize that after over 12 years of renting our lovely old stone house in beautiful Montenegro, that most of our happy guests don’t write reviews and we are guaranteed that most of the unhappy ones do. Such is life . So all future happy guests please write, and the few unfortunate unhappy ones, I will be grateful if you would let me know as soon as possible so I can endeavor to rectify the issue. We live in a vibrant neighborhood, not a tourist hotspot and so do our best to be tolerant with our neighbours getting on with their daily life.
Lovely relaxing place to stay with lovely views and clear water for swimming and some good nearby re
Lovely house with fabulous views. Stairs a bit challenging but all facilities great. Some comfortable cushions for outside seating would have been good but overall brilliant place to stay would definitely recommend
A lovely house with bundles of character in a beautiful quiet location but near to a lively town
Perfect combination of peace and quiet but plenty to do in the vicinity. So wonderful to have a dip in the calm waters just on the doorstep when it got hot. The house has tons of character, the beds comfortable and equipped with everything you need for your hols. The only thing that should be mentioned is the steep staircase to the upper floor as some guests may struggle with this. Jules was great at keeping in touch and answering our questions and, despite the language barrier, the neighbours were lovely too!
