Kastelani apartment is positioned in a very convenient location - 90 meters away from Dubrovnik main ferry boat harbor and intercity bus station Gruž - a final destination for buses from Dubrovnik airport, which is located 20 km (12 miles) away.
As mentioned a free parking for one vehicle is provided.
Guests coming with plane I wait at airport shuttle bus terminal, and drive with my car in 1 minute to apartment free of any charge.
While you stay in Dubrovnik, we would advice you to use public transfer since the city gets really crowded during the summer season. A city bus stop is 20 m away and a ride to the old town will take you 5 minutes.
It's a bargain compared to the time and money you'll have to spend for parking your car near the old town, and moreover it is virtually impossible to find free parking space there in summer.
If you come by car or rent it in Dubrovnik, as I mention above it is very exhausting and time consuming experience to drive around old city in effort to find parking place, which you certainly will not manage.
I must mention also that cars are not allowed to enter old city, only emergency ones such as: ambulances, fire brigades, police and local Bishop only can use his car to enter his palace in old city and not one else.
Public buses stops about 50 meters away from the entrance door of the old city and are very frequent, every 10-15 minutes, from the place my apartment is and journey will take also 5- 10 minutes more less..
Approaching to apartment is also very convenient.
To reach my apartment there are no steps to climb at all, if you came by car or rent a car here, you can park it just next from the entrance door, and if you are without car, you can use excellent air conditioned public transportation buses, station is just 20m away or if you prefer walk.
I have close, 1 m to entrance door private parking place for my guests free of any charge for their entire stay.
Best way is if came or rent a car here leave it parked on my parking and use it to visit countryside and around where parking place can be found close to some beach by lower price but half mile before old city its not a case, there if you find it 6 $ an hour it cost 24 hours a day.
Old city is close to sea of course, surrounded by some 2 km city walls, bus stops is at the entrance,
Here, where I live and apartment is, city public air conditioned buses are very frequent to old city and any beach in Dubrovnik you wish to visit. No exhausting climbing, to perform., if you are with car, my private parking is for your convenient, free of any charge during your entire stay.
Dubrovnik is certainly an Adriatic jewel and among Wold`s top 10 destinations.
Wish you pleasant stay at my apartment.
My name is Niksa and I am contact person and owner in charge, will be glad to be your host, in you decide so.
I can speak and write English excellent, and communicate /but not write/ with guests also on Italian and Spanish language.
Gruz area is actually heart of Dubrovnik where my apartment is, lot of facilities are within 200m such as, huge shopping mall, intercity bus station used also as airports shuttle buses, as arriving/ departing place,, and guests coming by plane I can always if u like wait u there and drive with my car from here in few minutes free of any charge, besides, fresh fish and green grocery market is 200 m away, rent a car scooter agencies, exchange offices, daily trips agencies to many destinations around are 100 m away, small ships visiting several times per day nearby Elaphite islands docked 100 m from apartment, post office, banks, numerous restaurants, docking place for ships coming and going to Bari, Italy and other Croatian destination ports is just 100m below.
Moreover, pharmacy is there, 2 ambulances, many smaller shops, bakery, children playground in beautiful park and many more, bus station for any destination to old city 2 km away or to any bus station is just 20 m from apartment and is easier way of transportation in Dubrovnik as parking cost a lot its pay hourly but no way you will find it despite, ac city is jammed with cars.
Общение с гостями
I meet guests on arrival, , and show them what can be useful to them if are interested, so, places what are interesting such as bus station, beaches, how to reach certain place etc.,and have to copy at my place below each client passport data , so it take 5 minutes as I fill then in internet data for tourist office, no bother u much at all.
, I also wrote few pages of important data for guests stay in apartment and sure Dubrovnik ,We-fI is free and password is there along with bus numbers to certain places and many more .
Since i live below on separate entrance any time guests can come to ask what they need. I or my older 2 years brother one is always home and mother having some age, so welcome if you need anything reasonable, we take care on the spot.
Welcome to Dubrovnik, is pearl of Europe
The Best Europe Weekend Getaways
One of the best European weekend getaways has to be Dubrovnik. With dozens of flight connections from all across Europe, it’s easily accessible and makes a great escape all-year-round.
Dubrovnik has turned into a must-see destination for travelers who are fans of the cult television series Game of Thrones, though it was popular long before the show. With breathtaking views overlooking the Adriatic Sea from the UNESCO-Listed city walls, and with a stack of day trip options to places like Lokrum Island, or perhaps Cavtat or Konavle you can’t pass up those discount airfares to Croatia’s most popular destination.
Apartment I offer is in heart of the city , anything you might need is within 200m. from apartment
