A long overdue return to Villa Ivy for a special family holiday. No where else would be so perfect. Fantastic Hosts, Villa, Scenery. We did not want to leave. We have so many wonderful memories of our visits here and can't wait to return to make some more! All the excellent reviews for Villa Ivy are true and well deserved. Thank you so much Geoff and Helen you make the holidays so special. We are so looking forward to our next visit. XX.
We choose this property from its reviews. It is the first and only time we have found the reviews of a property to be 100%. accurate. We loved the apartment, the location of the villa and the service provided by the owners, Geoff & Helen. It provided the perfect place for a relaxing and stress free holiday. We are already in the process of booking a return trip next year.
Our holiday in September 2018 was our 4th trip back to Villa Ivy and our first return back for five years. We completed a review in 2010 on our first visit and in terms of service, attention to detail and luxury, everything was as excellent as before.
The number of return guests clearly highlight how impressed so many are with the apartment and the hosts, Geoff and Helen. It is the only place that my wife's parents have ever visited outside of the UK and our last holiday was their third visit!
As there were six of us, we had the ground floor apartment which includes three double bedrooms, one with an ensuite and another bathroom. There is air-con in the apartment and the kitchen is stocked with all of the utensils and pans you need. There is a fridge freezer to stock up on snacks and drinks from the local shops.
Geoff and Helen make Villa Ivy special and they both greeted us at the airport. Helen was flying back to the UK but wanted to say hi to us and wish us a happy holiday before she left. A really nice touch and highlights the type of people Geoff and Helen are; friendly, thoughtful and willing to go the extra mile to make your holiday the best it can be. Geoff provided some excellent recommendations for people to speak to for trips and restaurants to try. We were never disappointed.
The views from the apartment are amazing, overlooking the mountains on one side and the sea on the other. On our fourth attempt, we finally saw a wild tortoise near the swimming pool. Cavtat town is around 20 minutes walk downhill and you can use a bus (10kn) or taxi (60-70kn) to get back up as it is quite steep in places.
An excellent holiday with a number of fantastic memories. Hvala!
This has to be my favourite place and I am always sorry to come home. Always lovely and clean, pretty much everything supplied. Lovely welcome pack, big salad, wine, fresh bread, eggs and big fruit bowl. Geoff and Helen make it home from home with their personal touches. Thanks again, we will be back.
We have just returned from a terrific week at Villa Ivy. The whole experience was a delight. Geoff and Helen are the best hosts you could possibly wish for. They ensure that they give you the very best they possibly can so your holiday is a success. The apartments are spotless, in fact it is like walking into a newly furbished apartment – lovely personal touches – and they are equipped with everything you could possibly need for your holiday. The whole set up is extremely pleasing. There is a great swimming pool with plenty of sun and shade. Each apartment has its own private balcony/terrace with table and chairs and the views are truly magnificent. We have never felt so cared for on a holiday before. Cavtat is a very pretty and pleasing resort with a great selection of restaurants and bars. You can sit and eat your meal next to the sea or on the water front and it is a great place to people watch. There are plenty of ferries and buses so that you can explore the surrounding areas easily and getting to Dubrovnik is so straightforward it is a must. You will not be disappointed if you book your holiday here at Villa Ivy.
