It´s been our second time in this wonderful apartment above the port of Gruz. The hospitality and awesome kindness of Ivana and her family, the owner of the apartment compensates even the 200 steps from the harbour to the house :-). Supermarket is close to the house, from the port of Gruz it takes only a few minutes by bus to the Old Town and in Gruz you also have a lot of restaurants, bars and a daily market where you can buy fish, vegetable and fruit. We can especially recommand the restaurant "Amfora" in Gruz. We love Dubrovnik and Ivanas place!

The apartment is well decorated and maintained with all necessary facility. It is located in a quiet hillside of Dubrovnik where we could sleep very well. With some steps, it is connected to the old town by around 30mins walk or frequent bus services. Restaurants and supermarkets can be found in the area. The host is very friendly and helpful.

Our holiday in Dubrovnik got the perfect start when we entered our lovely apartment of Palm Tree Paradise. The host of the place, Ivana, welcomed us with great hospitality. And, there was tasty Croatian red wine in a carafe and a delicious homemade apple pie awaiting us as a welcoming gift in the kitchen. Ivana had as well filled up the fridge, with everything that you can imagine needing at the beginning of your stay - without running to the grocery shop in the first place.
The apartment was very cozy, clean, calm and decorated with good taste. The view from the terrace was wonderful! It was also very relaxing to have breakfast or a meal in the kitchen, with a view all the way to the Adriatic Sea through the "window wall".
We have never met such hospitality while travelling. When the other of us got sick on the second day of our stay, we were immediately helped and advised by our hosts for the nearby pharmacy and medicine. They even cooked us a delicious soup to help heal the illness!
Palm Tree Paradise is as well nicely located. For the ones that like to walk, the old town of Dubrovnik is not too far away (2,5km). Otherwise jump on the bus around 200 steps 'downstairs' from Palm Tree Paradise :) Moreover, at a 5 minutes walking distance you’ve the main bus station of Dubrovnik, where you can catch the bus to the airport. Within the same distance you can catch a ferry to the islands.
We want to thank Ivana and her family for a wonderful stay in Dubrovnik. We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. The apartment was one of the things that made our holiday in Dubrovnik just perfect!
Thank you and hope to see you again!
Extremely tidy and well designed rooms with large kitchen areas stocked with all you need. Beds are the most comfortable i have found on my travels. The area is easy to find and settled in a quiet location with excellent views
