Nina's apartment is terrific. It is a cozy little apartment with great view. Nina is also terrific. The apartment is located at the top of the hill which is just a 5 mins walk down to the center of Cavat. The hill is a bit steep but the view compensate for the Hill. I would certainly come back, the apartment is great and Cavat is amazing.
We chose Villa Arka for its proximity to the airport the night before an early flight. We were delighted with the studio space. It was bright, clean and contemporary with a great view over Cavtat and Dubrovnik in the distance. The facilities were clean, well stocked and all fully functioning. We were warmly welcomed and made to feel comfortable. Watching the sunset over Dubrovnik from our patio was a joy.
It was an easyily walkable distance into Cavat on tarmac roads with street lighting but the return walk to the villa at the top of the hill is more challenging and not a wise choice for anyone who finds any difficulties with walking.
If I HAD to find negatives I would say the studio didn't have many power sockets so hair drying and straightening near a mirror involved moving the bed and unplugging the bedside lights to use the sockets - but it probably took longer to write about that than it did to do it!
....... and remember, it's only 4km from the airport so there are planes flying overhead (but not throughout the night) so if you're looking for total tranquillity this isn't the location for you.
