Best Dubrovnik Airbnbs

1. The dreamy Old Town apartment with a view

This stunning apartment in Old Town Dubrovnik isn’t just in a great location, it has the best views out over the town from its secluded terrace. You’re also just a stones’ throw from Banje Beach here, which is famed for its golden sand and clear blue water.

Arguably, the heart of a holiday home isn’t the kitchen, but the outdoor terrace, where the party congregates to eat a long, lazy meal at sundown. Luckily, this converted townhouse offers a stunning terrace with unparalleled views of the city and the bluer-than-blue sea. Lovingly names the ‘orange tree apartment’, it’s nothing short of breathtaking. 

The Great Gatsby mansion

This luxury 1920s villa stands elegantly above the city walls, surrounded by verdant creepers and climbing flowers. This fabulous stone villa looks like the sort of place F Scott Fitzgerald floated through on one of his Meditteranean sojourns – and if you want to stay there, there’s space for you to bring seven of your nearest and dearest along.

A modernist slab of white stone and reflective windows, this rental offers splendid seclusion, located just outside of Dubrovnik, and next to the water. Fancy a dip? Good news: The pool is enormous. Cozzies on!

5. The cute brick apartment for four

This studio is perfect for a family of four or four pals, and has a particularly homely feel due to bare brick walls and loft bedroom area. It’s also very centrally located in a beautiful building, with a whole host of great bakeries and cafês just outside. 

The trendy mezzanine apartment

Fabulously hip, this apartment retains the original features of its adobe walls, while trendifying the classical building with polished oak, houseplants and a mezzanine bedroom. The best thing? This snug Airbnb is so close to the Old town that you could skip there. 

The stately townhouse

This refurbished townhouse enjoys a fantastic location in the Old Town. Inside, unabated luxury awaits, with pretty pastel-hued interiors and a wicker flourishes. The home is named ‘La Vita e Bella’ – and it’s clear why. 

The boldly artistic villa

If you've ever seen Grand Designs, you'll know how hard it is to pick a wall colour that complements the wooden beams of your freshly converted farmhouse. It's something we can all relate to. Determined to avoid this folly, the owner of this unique pad has blended contrasting interiors by several Croatian designers under one roof, with seriously striking results.

And for more great places to stay in Croatia…
