Perfect location, great views and lovely apartment
It was a charming apartment with an incredible view. You need to have some level of fitness to handle the stairs and walk round the bay to old town Kotor (which isn’t far...a few drink stops along route). Really impresssed with Nicky and Alex who checked us in and out, all incredibly well organised. A perfect holiday.
Great apartment, lovely complex, near town, great views.
We spent 12 days in the apartment, everything there you could need. A very comfortable holiday home, nice beds and pillows. Excellent location. Lovely pool and always very clean (could do with some new sun umbrellas). Our only small criticism would be re the wardrobes in the apartment which were crammed full of ‘stuff’ leaving little space to actually hang our clothes on a minimal number of children’s hangers!!!
Kotor old town is very special especially in the evenings when the cruise ships have left, great restaurants usually with some sort of live music.
We did a full day tour of Montenegro through 360 Monte and what an excellent day, thoroughly recommend.
We didn’t hire a car and used Red Taxis as recommended by Andrew and they were great, only just over 2 euros to get into the old town from the apartment, 11 to Tivat and we wanted to go to a beach one day, didn’t know where to go and the taxi lady took us to a great spot and then came back to collect us late afternoon!! Excellent service.
All in all we had a superb holiday and loved Montenegro

Great apartment with amazing views
This is a very comfortable and well equipped apartment with amazing views from the spacious balcony. The beds were extremely comfortable and the apartment was very quiet at night. Even though we visited in mid July the two good sized pools were very pleasant and we could usually find spare sunbeds. The sunbeds were very comfortable too! Only areas for improvement would be to replace the wobbly doors on the shower cubicle and clear some of the spare bedding and cushions out of the wardrobes so guests have more hanging space. The apartment is located around 25 minutes walk from the old town of Kotor which wouldn't be a problem except that the first part of this walk is along a narrow and quite busy road with no pavements in some parts. We didn't hire a car so had to negotiate this walk a lot. We used to walk into town but get a taxi back. As others have mentioned taxis are very cheap at just 2 euros, but after a few nights we found this all quite tiresome. Our advice would be that to enjoy this location fully you really do need to hire a car. We enjoyed a boat trip to Perest and also had some nice meals in the old town.
Thank you for you review. Much appreciated and allows others to get a better idea of the apartment and country before they book. Thanks for letting us know about the shower. We will replace the shower door at the end of this season October 2018. Good suggestion on wardrobes we will clear out the older cushions etc. A car is great for exploring beaches further afield but not essential. We would also suggest get Red Taxis in the evening about 3 euros into Old Town and 12 euros to Tivat. You can ring them for pick up and speak English. Our apartment is called Kotor Vista 5 Buildings. Thank you Andy & Kerry
Excellent apartment with stunning views and in a great location!
We would say this is one of the best positioned apartments in the Kotor View complex. It had by far the best views, was quiet and very well equipped.
A couple of days before we arrived we were notified of an electrical issue with the apartment, but the local agent (who was very helpful) found us a different apartment in the same complex for the first 2 nights until the issue was resolved. During our stay and on our return the owner communicated and offered to compensate us for the nights lost, and this was resolved very quickly and efficiently with him - very much appreciated.
Overall, the apartment is of a very high standard. The master bed was exceptionally comfortable, and all other amenities in the apartment in very good condition and worked perfectly. We particularly loved being able to sit on the balcony and enjoy the sun and views all day round. It's a great bonus having the pool here, so if you wish you can choose to relax here all day rather than venture off to find a beach.
The old town of Kotor is about a 15/20 minute walk along a busy stretch of narrow road (to start), and then has a pavement. We favored walking to the town and catching a (very cheap) taxi back, but also did this both ways and couldn't fault the service!
Overall would recommend the apartment without hesitation. If you are looking to base your self catered holiday around the Old Town of Kotor area (but not stay in the 'thick of it'), this is the place for you!
This is a lovely apartment with amazing views over the Bay of Kotor. It is situated on the opposite side of the bay from the old town, but only a 20 min walk, or a €2 Euro taxi ride, yes €2. We had a car which we collected at the airport but unless you intend to travel around a lot it is not necessary as taxis are so cheap and the apartment is only 15 mins max from the airport ( Tivat ).
The apartment is well stocked with all the essentials, kettle, toaster pans etc should you wish to eat in but again the prices in the locality are as cheap as you'll find anywhere in Europe. One real bonus was the bed, which was as comfortable a bed as we have stayed in for a long time.
There were plenty of sunbeds around the pool and it was rarely busy, pick your spot, even at 11am.
Our dealings with the owners were quick and efficient, as was our dealings with their agent in Montenegro, and don't worry about having to pay direct rather than through Home and Away, it makes it cheaper for us to visit this wonderful place
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It is much appreciated. Please do come back and stay with us again. We love the beds too. In fact we get a better nights sleep on holiday than we do at home. An important part of a holiday home and often under estimated when furnishing an apartment. We love going out for the evening with great food and wine. Then back to the apartment to enjoy music on the balcony through the quality sound system and watch the mountain lights reflecting on the water. Then a great nights sleep! Andrew & Kerry
Fantastic view to die for!
It was a little stressful trying to meet this apartment's agent as we only got a message that his phone was out of service and no-one knew who he was at the pre-arranged meeting point, making us think that we had been scammed! A kind Montenegro lady got hold of him on her phone, a huge relief for us. I would suggest that holiday makers arrange to meet him at an arranged time as he said that the UK mobiles often don't work in Montenegro.
The apartment itself was beautiful with a fantastic view. It was so lovely sitting on the balcony watching the cruise ships, canoes and boats in the day time and Kotor lights at night. The highlights of our holiday was driving up to Lovcen for the fantastic views of the mountains, canoeing on the fjord, walking up the steps behind Kotor, having a look around Porto Montenegro at the extremely huge and expensive yachts, visit to Perast and the Lady of the Rocks, lazing by the pool with that fantastic view, and boating on Lake Skadar to see lots of wild birds including pelicans.
We didn't like the look of Budva as it looked very built up and too busy.
The apartment itself had most things that we needed. You do need to buy things like dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid etc as none of it is provided. There were no swimming pool towels or gowns on arrival, we had to contact the agent who brought them a couple of days later. There were plenty of sun loungers around the pool and there was always one for us. There are plenty of little coves to swim in, though not many beaches.
Our biggest disappointment with the apartment was that the DVD was broken on arrival. We were at the apartment for two weeks, but the owner decided not to replace it whilst we were there or have it mended! We had brought a couple of box sets with us to watch in the evenings as you can only get BBC news channel on the TV, so we're bitterly disappointed at his decision. On return from our holiday I emailed him, but he did not reply!
Don't let this put you off this apartment though, hopefully it would have been mended by now, the apartment is fantastic, we would highly recommend it. Relax and Enjoy!
Thanks for the review and feedback. Yes the marantz blue ray player is now fixed. It's a £1000 piece of kit with high powered amplifier to drive the separate Monitor speakers so just buying a stand along DVD player would not amplify through the speakers and the high fidelity music / iPod facility would have been lost. The DVD draw was Jammed due to two DVD being inserted. Our apologise that this was out of action for your stay. Nicky (our agent) did try to get it booked into a chap in budva to get it fixed that week but he was away.
Thank you for your understanding and your kind words about our apartment and the detailed review. Gowns and beach towels should have been provided and we will replace these items on our next visit. They have tendency to get lost!
