O2 Exclusive Sea Front Apartment - Pleasant apartment with outstanding views. We split our stay between two apartments, with this being the latter. We wanted to be slightly away from the busy day to day of old town. So this was great for us. But if that's not what you want, rest assured it's only a 15 minute walk from old town! The views were incredible from the balcony. Spending the mornings looking over the harbour and Lokrum never got old. The views alone are worth staying here. The 02 apartment was lovely. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.Peter, October 2014

La Maison d’Eté- Dear Isabelle and Victor, We had a great time in Croatia, beautiful country! The blue sky and good weather during the whole week of our stay made our trip a great success. The maison d'ete apartment has an excellent location, just as you told me in our phone conversation,and the view from the balcony was wonderful.It was a very easy walk into the old town. I wish we could have stayed longer, but we had just a week for the whole country. The transfer from the airport was good. The place was fully equipped even for a longer stay and clean. We were very content with your service , quick response and your recommendation to choose this apartment.Binah and Alex , October 2014

 Butterfly Services- Dear Viktor and Isabelle Just wanted to tell you we had a great time in Dubrovnik. We loved everything about it. The information you gave us was very useful indeed. The apartment was lovely and suited us very well. Peter was very charming and told us lots of things about Dubrovnik. From beginning to end a very successful trip. Would highly recommend it to anyone. Thank you very much.Kate, October 2014

Secret I One-Bedroom- We found The Secret Apartments by other reviews on Tripadvisor and so thankful. We stayed in Secret 1 and thought it was brilliant. It was very clean, well equipped and so central within the Walls of the Old Town. It was within easy walking distance of everything we needed and a bonus there were no steps to it like many of the other apartments within the Walls. Viktor and Isabelle were so friendly, just like friends, rather than business acquaintances. They replied to emails straight away and were very helpful in arranging Airport transfers for us which were also excellent. Their recommendations of places to visit/eat were well received. Thank you for a great timeTrip Advisor review, October 2014

MirÓ Studio Apartments Returned from Dubrovnik, Miro apartments just over a week ago, and it was one of our best holidays! The apartment is absolutely in the best location, just outside the old town, a minute from the Pile Gate. It was very quiet, amazingly so as it is so close to everything. We had an apartment on the second floor, which we found to be modern, very clean and having everything we needed for our stay. A lot of people have written in disappointment, that they were not given the sea view, but it really is not an issue as we were out all the time, and in anycase at night, we could hear the waves when in bed which was lovely. That did not happen more than once though as the weather we had was perfect and the sea flat calm nearly all the time. We took advantage of the transfer that Isabelle organized for us and all went very smoothly. When we arrived in Dubrovnik, Mareja who was very friendly and smiling was there to meet us and take us to the apartment and show us everything. We had all we needed there and that included lots of information regarding restaurants, trips out, things to do etc. which we found very helpful. Our apartment was cleaned everyday and the reception was open everyday if we needed to ask anything. When we left, we were able to get Mareja to organize a transfer back to the airport, and were able to leave our bags until late afternoon. She is very good and efficient! We were really impressed with the ease of booking, and Isabelle replied to our emails immediately, and gave us all the information we needed. Can't think of anything we had to ask as it was all provided. Excellent. Would have no hesitation staying here again if visiting Dubrovnik, or of recommending it to family and friends.Trip Advisor review, October 2014

MirÓ Studio Apartments Hi Isabelle! We've just arrived back in rainy Sweden and can't thank you and Marija (sp?) for all your help this week - we had a superb time. Thank you so much again :). Melissa, October 2014

Secret II Two-Bedroom- Everything was perfect from the moment we were picked up the airport and dropped off a

gain. Dubrovnik is a beautiful place and the Secret II apartment was very spacious and in a great location. Lots of lovely bars and restaurants on the doorstep. Viktor gave us lots of useful information. Would highly recommend these apartments. Kathleen , October 2014

Secret I One-Bedroom- Hi Isabelle and Viktor We have arrived back in the UK and wanted to say what a fabulous time we have had in Dubrovnik, we loved the place. The Secret I apartment was lovely and well placed for all the amenities. Hope to be in contact in the future for another well deserved break. Jan, October 2014

La Maison d’Eté- Our visit to dubrovnik was amazing our accomodation was in a fantastic location . Everything was what it said i would be . Our transferes were on time and very straight forward . Thank you very much victor and isabella you were very helpful and since our visit quite a few people have book accomadation for our wedding next year. Thanks again.xxx Kate, October 2014

MirÓ Studio Apartments - Brilliant location. A couple of minutes walk to old town and a small beach right by the apartment. It is centrally located for all local buses and the shuttle bus to the airport. Staff very helpful and friendly. Apartment has a free safe. Dubrovnik is a wonderful place to visit and I would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation. We had a fantastic holiday. Jenny, October 2014

Secret I One-Bedroom -We loved the location, steps away from the Stradun and all the old town's attractions, hundreds of restaurants and shops. The Secret I apartment was lovely and much larger than expected .A real treat was the jazz guitarist playing below the windows early evening. Susan, October 2014

L’Heure Bleue -Hi Isabelle We have been enjoying the sunny weather. Thanks for a lovely stay. All the best Mark, Anne and baby Yuna, October 2014

MirÓ Studio Apartments - These appartments are about 100 meters from the airport bus drop off beside the old ciity walls. The location couldn't be better. The staff and room met all of our expectations and more for our 6 day stay. Boat rental, stoney beach, and beautiful view right outside the door. Our appt #3, has no ocean view, but also doesn't have any windows looking in so is very private. I wasn't sure what to expect when we booked Croatia, but I would recommend a visit there to anyone, and while the Miro isn't a Hilton hotel, it was ideal for us. I hope we can return again. Steve and Julie, October 2014

Butterfly Services Dear Isabelle, We just wanted to express our sincere thanks for your kindness, your professionalism, integrity and cooperation in working with us. The service you have afforded us is impeccable. We are disappointed that we did not meet you at this time but rest assured we still plan to make the trip in the near future.. You are honest, run your visit efficiently, your web site is informative and easy to work with. Most of all you run your business with great integrity. Thank you. Pat and Dahlia, October 2014

O2 Exclusive Sea Front Apartment Hello Isabelle & Viktor… We really enjoyed our holiday to Croatia including a lovely stay in Dubrovnik. I found your communication and services very good and thorough and we very much appreciate that. The O2 apartment was very good. Our only feedback for improvement would be the quality of the bed in the master bedroom. There were 2 extra pillows in the cupboard but no pillow cases for them so they could be used. Everything else was very good… great location, the information provided at the property was comprehensive and very useful. Many thanks. Cathy, October 2014

Villa La Pausa Viktor, Thanks so much for the chocolates you sent via Ivan. Villa La Pausa was fantastic and Ivan was wonderful!! All the guests had a wonderful time and many are already talking about a 'reunion!' Thanks so much! Ha, October 2014

La Dolce Vita The apartment is located at the middle of old city. You can walk every where of old city and only 5 minutes walking is needed for Placa road. This apartment has spacious living room, 2 bed rooms and 2 bath rooms. It is enough for 4 adults. Every morning, grocery market is opened and Konzum is also located in front of the apartment. Very convenient location. We have spent amazing time in La Dolce vita apartment and we made very good memories about Dubrovnik. Soohyun, October 2014

Secret II Two-Bedroom I've been to Dubronik many times before and have stayed both within and out of the Old Town. Since I was bringing my mother for the first time, I really wanted to stay in the Old Town (which, if it is your first time would recommend doing). We were an odd number of people, and the Secret Apartments was perfect. Two bedrooms (one with two singles and one double) with plenty of room upstairs to chill out. We didn't use the kitchen at all, but it has a stovetop, a sink and other basics. Location is dead central and the apartment is clean. The two drawbacks are that the apartment we stayed in was on the second floor so prepared to walk up steps; and the bath doesn't have a proper shower so you just have to use the shower as a handheld. Not really a dealbreaker Trip Advisor review, October 2014

Nid d'Amour- Nid Amour was amazing place to live. Very close to the Old Town and nice view. (I want to leave the photo about it) Every night and morning, we saw the sky beyond the window. We overlooked the Old Town and also saw how people do in the cable car. The room was same as the picture, but the movement i felt was more than that. Everything inside the room was modern and cosy. Viktor was too nice to make an information book about the dubrovnik sightseeing. If I get the second chance to visit dubrovnik, I will revisit here. Jui Jeong, October 2014

Secret I One-Bedroom Dear Isabelle and Viktor, We would like to thank you both for looking after us so well. Everything was very organised and we feel very happy in recommending you to our friends. The Secret apartment was excellent and the location couldn't have been better. Thank You! Val and Carolina, September 2014

La Note Bleue Brilliant! The apartment was perfect. It was spacious, clean and the location could not have been any better. You are able to get down to the water within 5 minutes (if you take the lift) and there are some amazing restaurants nearby (for example: Atlantic Kitchen). The balcony benefits from the sun all day. We are already planning a return trip next year. Trip Advisor review, September 2014

Secret II Two-Bedroom Perfection! A home away from home.” My family of three (our son is 18) stayed in Secrets 2 for three nights and we all three loved it!!! Isabelle responded to my numerous emails promptly and helped me select the apartment that would best fit my wishes. Secrets 2 had two bedrooms and a bath on one level with a nice foyer. From the foyer of our apartment a flight of stairs lead up to a very nicely appointed and comfortable living room with dining area and small kitchen area (one large room). This particular apartment had very nice views over the building tops of Dubrovnik which I enjoyed greatly. We were met in the square outside the hotel and showed up to our apartment. After getting an idea of our interests, we were provided with maps and suggestions for restaurants and must sees in the area. All of this was very special but the main draw for my family was the location, right in the very center of old town Dubrovnik, within a few minutes walk to restaurants, a green market and sights. We enjoyed several terrific restaurants but we also enjoyed picking up scrumptious sandwiches from a nearby sandwich shop and picking up fruit etc from the green market and enjoying them at our "own" dining table for breakfast and some lunches. Being so centrally located, we could sightsee but return to our room to avoid the warmest and most crowded times of day. Our vacation was 17 days in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Croatia. Dubrovnik was one of our fondest places. This was in large measure due to the perfection and location of this wonderful accommodation. Air-conditioning was terrific as was the wi-fi. Highly, highly recommended! Trip Advisor review, September 2014

Acqua -Modern apartment in a spectacular location! I stayed in the Acqua apartment with 3 other companions and we had a wonderful time. The apartment is located on a quite street, but just down a long staircase away is a cute avenue with lots of restaurant options, taxis and the bus stop. The steep stairs may be challenging for anyone who can't get around easily, but certainly aren't too challenging for the average person. The apartment is clean, modern, and has a spectacular view over Lapad beach, with several bars and hotels and a sparking bay. The apartment was roomy and has a kitchen and nice balcony. There is only one bathroom, but that wasn't an issue for us. And it is only about a 10 minute taxi/bus ride to the old city. It was a great option for 4 people traveling together. And we much preferred staying in Lapad versus right near the crowds in the old city. We would definitely consider staying here again. Trip Advisor review, September 2014

Divine III Loft We wanted to stay close to or within the Old Town Walls and were fortunate enough to find Divine III. We had initially booked 3 nights but extended it to 5 nights. Perfect place to relax and recharge after 3 weeks in Morocco. Viktor and Isabelle were great to deal with from check in, to sorting out a small problem in the bathroom, to vacating the apartment. Very comfy beds+++, great little kitchen, bathroom with washing machine (a bonus), TV and WIFI and such a fantastic location. The apartment is up some stairs and the bedroom is a loft set up (more stairs) - might be a problem for some. Nice area - so close to the Stradun, shops, restaurants and all the sights. Of course Dubrovnik is delightful ... and it's all on your doorstep. Trip Advisor review, October 2014

Secret I One-Bedroom Fantastic location, excellent accommodation and lovely staff who were contactable 24/7 and who really wanted to add value. Janet, September 2014

O2 Exclusive Sea Front Apartment -Hi Isabelle Just a quick note to thank you for all your assistance in making our trip to Dubrovnik such a success. I cannot begin to tell you how incredibly impressed we have been with Butterfly Services and you have been a delight to deal with. Your responses to my emails have always been prompt, efficient and extremely helpful and I will have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to any friends who may be thinking about visiting Dubrovnik. As for the O2 apartment, just fabulous!! Karen, September 2014

Nid d'Amour -We must have had the best view in the whole of Dubrovnik. Amazing vista over the walls and the little bays. The apartment was modern and clean, quiet and well planned. It had a kitchenette although we mostly ate out. The area was very safe and so easy to find bars and restaurants. If you want to go further afield the bus system is fab. I would definitely recommend the studio to anyone wanting a reasonably priced base in a fantastic location Kennedy, September 2014

La Note Bleue-This is a lovely, well appointed apartment in a quiet part of Dubrovnik, but still with lots of bars, restaurants and other facilities within easy walking distance. The old town is very handy - just a short bus ride away. There is a big balcony with furniture provided and lovely views from the apartment. It was very well furnished and had all of the equipment that I would have needed. Viktor is a very friendly host and he made the whole trip very stress free, from organising transfers to and from the airport to his great suggestions of things to see and do during my stay. I would love to go back and would heartily recommend this apartment to anyone. Peter, September 2014

MirÓ Studio Apartments "NICE AND WELL LOCATED" .We spent a week in MirO Studio apartment and is comfortable. You feel independent a-nd at the same time served if you need it. Marija is very friendly and has a great interest in everything works fine,'s always smiling. The location is perfect and you can go walking almost everywhere. It would be excellent if you already serve breakfast TripAdvisor review, September 2014

Nid d'Amour -One place that you have to visit and feel it, see it with your own eyes!” We were very well looked after by the property managing agents, they really do care about every details, that extra touch makes us feel very welcomed. Many thanks to Viktor and Isabelle Trip Advisor review, September 2014

Villa La Pausa-I must say we loved our stay at your villa, everything was amazing and Victor was very helpful. There is nothing that we would change and we would definitely return and let our friend now. Location is perfect, the cleanliness was very good, the layout and décor of the villa was amazing. I travel a lot and have stayed in many places around the world but I was extremely impressed with Villa La Pausa. Thanks Alexandria, September 2014

Divine III Loft- Hi Isabelle! Having a wonderful time, Dubrovnik is magnificent and Viktor's advice has been great. The Divine III apartment is perfect as well! Thanks so much for arranging everything for us. You and Viktor have made it all so easy and we are grateful for your help Thanks for a lovely stay and see you next time! Lisa and Steve, September 2014

Secret III One-Bedroom- Hi Isabel and Victor, We had a wonderful stay in your wonderful apartment. Thank you

for your hospitality. Lindsay, September 2014

Vue Mer 61- Excellent! Magnificent views, beautiful apartment, clean and comfortable. All ran smoothly according to plan. Our host was charming, we loved Dubrovnik. I would recommend Vue Mer 61 apartment and a trip to Dubrovnik to everyone. Thank you. Janet, September 2014

Secret II Two-Bedroom We have just returned from a fabulous trip with friends which included three nights stay in the Secret apartments in Dubrovnik. The first two nights were in split level accommodation at the top of the building with fabulous views over the City from the well appointed living area. The accommodation was very comfortable and clean. We were greeted by Viktor who gave us helpful and sound advice on making the most of our next day in Dubrovnik. We returned for one night in apartment 4 at the end of the week - great en-suit bathrooms and comfortable beds, perfect for the four of us for an overnight stay. The location in the Old City is great and the sound of guitar playing echoing up from the church steps is magical. We would definitely choose stay in these apartments again on any future trip to Dubrovnik Trip Advisor review, September 2014

Aramis -Hi Isabelle and Viktor! We are now back at work after having a wonderful holiday. Firstly I must thankyou for the prompt replies to my initial enquiry. I must say you are both very professional in the way your business is run. All the information supplied in regards to the booking could not have been better. This made for a worry free time for our trip to Dubrovnik. The added information on where to go, what to do and extra advice was extremely helpful. Your services could not be faulted and will recommend to anyone travelling your way. We were met with a smile at 1pm at Aramis as discussed and shown through the apartment. Aramis was as described in the information and no surprises. It was clean and serviced all our requirements during the stay with the location ideal. One negative possibly to some would be the noise of the trucks removing rubbish in the morning. It is quite loud and could disturb those wishing to sleep in but this didn’t worry us as we are early risers. Thankyou again for making our stay a great experience and one we will both remember for years to come. John, September 2014

Divine IV Two-bedroom -Hello Isabelle & Viktor, We wanted to say thank you for our wonderful stay with you at Divine IV. The pickup service was great- very timely & convenient after being tired from many long flights. The location was very convenient (nice to be already within the walls when all the other tourists were trying to get through the gate!) We really appreciated how you both went the extra mile to see that we were looked after during our stay, from recommending the best places to visit, to storing our bags while we were switching locations & the guide book you made for guests. It was these extra personal touches that really made our stay that much better- we would highly recommend your apartments to anyone we know visiting Dubrovnik! Looking forward to planning our next trip as well!! Thank you for making our trip so special :) Caitlin & Tim, September 2014

Divine I One-Bedroom- Thank you very much for a lovely stay. You have a very Special and lovely city and the people are wonderful and amazing. We enjoyed walking the walls, swimming, day trips to Locrum and Cavtat which we enjoyed thoroughly. Thank you again and we hope our paths cross again some day as it will be our pleasure. Kathy and Gerard, September 2014

L’Heure Bleue -Dear Isabelle & Viktor, Thank you for making us so welcome at L'heure bleue. It was the ideal base for our time in Dubrovnik last week. Thank you again for your hospitality. We hope the rest of the season goes well for you. Alex & Rich, September 2014

Divine III Loft Fab location, great facilities and good value”. This is a great place to stay if you're a couple who want a bit of space and accommodation right in the Old Town. Victor and his team were great hosts and the loft was well decorated and surprisingly quiet - we had great sleeps! Only downside is that it isn't really catered for proper self-catering - it has some equipment but eg no potato peeler! But in reality why would you cook when you have Dubrovnik's eateries just downstairs? Good for breakfasting and making lunches - all in all a great find. Trip Advisor review, September 2014

O2 Exclusive Sea Front Apartment You Can Not Beat the View! The 02 apartment is located on a hill with the sea as your front yard. Views from the balcony are spectacular with the island of Lokrum in front, the rocky coast to the left and Old Town Dubrovnik to the right. It is a 10 minute walk to the famous beach and maybe a 15 minute down hill walk to Old Town. Keep in mind that if it is down hill to Old Town it is up hill to the apartment. And, there are 72 stairs to the apartment once you get there. Is it worth it, you bet ya. There are also super markets 10 minutes away. You will want to pick up supplies at least for breakfast and happy hour to enjoy the balcony and its wonderful views. You can even see the sun set over Old Town while enjoying a glass of wine. We ate in old town every night after sunset and had some great meals. The apartment is ultra modern with a fully stocked kitchen, huge balcony, comfortable furniture, plenty of electronics (we did not use any) and mood lighting throughout. The early morning pick up for the airport set up by Butterfly Services was flawless. We stayed five nights and decided this, along with Santorini Greece, was the best view we have ever had in all of our travels. This is a great place to stay as a home base with many side trips originating out of Dubrovnik. Robert, September 2014

Secret III One-Bedroom I'm now back after my tour around the Balkans. Just wanted to say thanks for making my stay in Dubrovnik enjoyable. The arrangements for meeting up on the first day worked fine and all the info in the book in the apartment was v useful. Also being able to leave my bags with you in the office on my final day was a great help. Viktor was very helpful and always smiling and happy to share his love of the city and recommendations on things to do which you don't often get at other accommodation places. Keep up the enthusiasm - it's infectious! The apartment was lovely - the only things that I feel could maybe recommend as minor improvements would be a bath mat and maybe a simple chair in the bedroom to be able to put clothes etc on overnight. Other than that it was lovely and a home from home and if I had to find somewhere to spend a few hours during all the thunderstorms then the apartment was certainly a welcome place to be!! Many thanks Liz, September 2014

Secret III One-Bedroom Bonjour Viktor, je ne parle qu'en bien de mon séjour dans votre appartement. Votre accueil était vraiment très sympa et vos conseils très appréciés. Je vous souhaite le meilleur pour vos futures entreprises. Luc, September 2014

Acqua “Wonderful Apartment.” We recently stayed in this wonderful apartment, the Host Ana could not of been any more helpful. The apartment was clean, spacious and well equiped with everything you could possibly need. The location was ideal though you do need to walk up quite a few steps from the main street in Lapad, but you are rewarded with the most spectacular veiw of the bay. The terrace was quite large and the most relaxing place to eat or read. Trip Advisor review, September 2014

MirÓ Studio Apartments Just returned from 5 day stay in Dubrovnik MirO apartments fab location 3 mins from Pile Gates, lovely cove 30 seconds from apartments. Apartments are very well equipped and Victor and his staff are very helpful. Would defininatey recommend to friends. Astrid, September 2014

Divine I One-Bedroom The Divine I apartment is in a terrific location in the old wall city! The pictures showed the apartment as is and was well represented. Viktor and Isabelle were excellent to work with! Trip Advisor review, September 2014

La Dolce Vita We spent 4 nights at La Dolce vita apartment and had a wonderful time. All the fittings and furniture were modern and clean. Having a kitchen and washing machine were very useful, unfortunately the fridge door did not close properly. The kitchen was equipped with everything you could need to cook a meal. The living area was very large with windows overlooking the square. Both bedrooms and bathrooms were roomy and comfortable. The location was fantastic, only a few minutes walk from Pile Gate. Right next to the apartment was an ATM, many cafes, a small bakery and a supermarket. Everything was in easy reach. The staff who look after the apartment were very helpful in meeting us promptly with the key. They also provided us with a map and spent time explaining the local area and providing tips about what to see, good places to eat etc. If you want to experience a stay right in the centre of the old town with everything within easy reach then this is the place. We had a fantastic stay. Claire, September 2014

Secret IV One/Two-Bedroom We had a nice stay here. The ladies that work in the office are friendly and helpful. The apartment is at a great location, although there was pretty loud music at a restaurant most nights. The apartment was safe and clean and if we were coming back to Dubrovnik would stay here again. Dale, September 2014

MirÓ Studio Apartments We spent 4 nights at the Miro Apartments at the start of our 2 week holiday in Croatia and were not disappointed. We had apartment 6 which had the only sea view which was nice but to be honest we spent so little time in the apartment it wouldn't have made any difference if we hadn't had the view. The apartment is extremely well located close to the Pilo Gate of the old city (100m). This means it's easy to get public or self drive transport if you want or need it. It's also sufficiently close to get in and out of the old city when you want but sufficiently far that you don't get the noise. The only slight draw back, and this is being picky, is the narrow 3 flights of stairs to the apartment. If your not up to carrying your own bags in narrow steep stairwells go for a lower level apartment. The apartment is not large but well appointed and the double bed was comfortable. The bathroom was new, modern and clean. Kitchen had what was needed but we didn't cook and I'm not sure you would want to as it was tight. Room Tip: Don't worry about the view - there's so much to see and do in Dubrovnik you won't miss i... Trip Advisor review, September 2014

L’Heure Bleue Fantastic views, great location, well appointed apartment” We'll be back! What a great place to stay - historical cultural interest combined with a stunning coastline, great food, and friendly welcoming people. The islands are wonderful, we hope to explore more of them next time. Trip Advisor review, September 2014

Secret III One-Bedroom We stayed in secret apartment 3 which is on the top floor of an historic building in the centre of Dubrovnik's old town, overlooking the St. Blaise church. The apartment is on two floors with an open-plan living and kitchen area on the upper floor and a bedroom and bathroom on the lower floor. The apartment is well equipped and had everything we needed for our three night break. The air conditioning is excellent and much needed in the summer months. Our hosts were extremely helpful and met our taxi outside the town walls and guided us to the apartment. Based on our research the apartment is priced very reasonably given its central location. Just a few things to note: - Secret III is on the top floor and you have to climb about 50 steps to get to it. Not a problem for us but something to bear in mind if you have limited mobility - Dubrovnik is a lively city with music, church bells, and the sounds of revelry well into the night. If you're looking for total peace and quiet then the old town may not be the place for you Trip Advisor review, September 2014

Le Reve Bleu The location and views were good. Our stay was very pleasant and we did enjoy ourselves. Gillian, September 2014

MirÓ Studio Apartments Modern clean apartment in perfect location” Great apartment, modern with convenient kitchen with microwave and hob, good room cleaning and towels, good check in and out service, have a locked left luggage store cupboard, in a fantastic location. We loved our stay here! Trip Advisor review, September 2014

MirÓ Studio Apartments We stayed in apartment 3, which was fairly small and basic, but which had everything we needed in terms of facilities. Bed was very comfortable, apartment block was clean and tidy. Staff were friendly and helpful. Couldn't fault the location. Quiet, ideal for the old city, and the tiny harbour just at the front of the apartment was great for a spot of quiet sunbathing. I recommend going out on one of the sea kayaking trips, which is based in the little harbour. We went on a sunset tour which was fantastic. We would definitely stay here again for a good value, no frills holiday Jessica, September 2014

La Note Bleue “Fantastic Apartment with Lovely View” Lovely modern apartment with nice views from balcony over Lapad Bay. Everything was spotlessly clean. Viktor was very friendly and gave us some excellent tips for places to visit and restaurants to try. It was only a ten minute bus journey to old Dubrovnik. Would definitely return to La Note bleue apartment and recommend to family and friends. Liz, August 2014

Acqua You guys were absolutely brilliant. In fact we wanted to say thank you to Victor for being such a star!!! You were wonderful! Firstly, you went out of your way to find us two great properties which really suited the bill and helped us get a fantastic holiday at really short notice – 24 hours! Divine was a practical, small, clean and efficient apartment which is great for a base in the Old Town. Lapad a beautiful apartment with great views and a lovely location – perfect for a more beach/sea based holiday. All had all necessary mod cons. You organised transfers with people who were lovely and supportive of tourists arriving in the region – it made life so easy but better than all of this was Victor’s bits of info that sent us off to places and looking around things that we maybe wouldn’t have found without him. I have never had a service like this before and truly appreciated it ! You absolutely made the difference to how our holiday was – it wasn’t just an apartment but a supported service which was friendly, fun and efficient.......... Thanks again – your services took the hassle out of our stay and added huge value to what we saw. Lesley and Mick, August 2014

O2 Exclusive Sea Front Apartment We booked the O2 apartment through Dubrovnik Chic Rentals/Butterfly Services, whom we would thoroughly recommend. Isabelle was a delight to deal with, always answering our emails immediately and constantly providing useful and helpful information, both before and during our stay out there. This included booking very efficient transfers to and from the airport with a delightful driver who was a mine of information! The owner of the apartment, Sandra, and her daughter Antonio were equally helpful, greeting us on our arrival, immediately answering a text when we had a minor query, and very kindly letting us have a late check out on our last day at no extra charge. As for the apartment itself, just fabulous! The photos on the website did look great, but you often wonder if they will match the reality. In this case, they certainly did as the O2 apartment was absolutely beautiful. Bright, airy, every facility you are likely to need, and the most beautiful views towards Locrum and the old town. Lovely modern kitchen, great shower, and load of nice sofas to lounge on! We went as a couple and a single, and one thing I might say is that the bunk bed room, which would be great for kids, is probably a bit small for an adult. However, this is not a problem, as the gorgeous garden room at the back, with a very comfy sofa bed, worked perfectly as a second bedroom. As for the distance from the town, in all honesty for us it was perfect, just a 10 minute stroll to the main gate (maybe a bit longer when coming back UP the hill) so far enough from the crowds but close enough that it wasn't too much of a hike in and out of town. All in all, a fantastic experience and we will certainly be recommending Butterfly Services and the O2 apartment to our friends. Trip Advisor review, August 2014

Divine IV Two-bedroom Dear Isabelle and Viktor Our second stay in one of the Divine Apartments, this time Divine IV, was perfect. We love the central location, meaning you can step out the front door and be in the heart of the old city but are only a few minutes walk from the cooling waters of the Adriatic. The apartment was very clean, comfortable and provided all the facilities that we needed. The transfer to and from the airport was very straight-forward, meaning we could enjoy our holiday right from the start, and we appreciated the facility to store our luggage on the last day. We love Dubrovnik and the service you provide is always so helpful and friendly and the apartments are just great. We'll be back! Sarah, Ian and Astrid, August 2014

MirÓ Studio Apartments “Brilliant location, very helpful staff!” We loved our stay here! Very nice, well maintained rooms! Convenient location but a bit more quiet than if it had been inside the old city... Isabelle and her team were always so helpful and accommodating! Couldn't recommend it highly enough!

Coconut Hi Isabelle & Victor, Both Coconut and Vue Mer 61 apartments were beautiful and in an excellent location. They were very clean with great facilities. Close enough to two beaches which make up for the lack of pool. - Transfers were punctual and very friendly with drivers speaking good English which helped us. - The information detailed on the website is very accurate and helpful. The ease of booking and check in process was very easy. - Fortunately we didn't require any assistance when in Dubrovnik, however the response to emails prior to arriving in Dubrovnik was quick and always positive. Couldn't ask for any more. With regards to the owners of the apartment, they were also very helpful and could not thank them enough for their help and we're available at evening, etc when we required some translation for a food order. Thanks for everything and hoping to get back to Dubrovnik again next year. Raymond, August 2014

Le Reve Bleu Thank you for you help! We have had a very enjoyable stay. Debbie, August 2014

Divine I One-Bedroom “Wonderful apartment in the center of the old city.” My young daughter and I spent a wonderful week in Divine I apartment, which is located in an ideal spot right in the middle of the old city of Dubrovnik. The apartment is very pleasant inside with a well-equipped full kitchen - it was great to have a place to cook some of the wonderful fresh produce from the nearby farmers market, and a nice change from eating out every meal. The garden terrace was also a lovely place to relax and escape the crowds during the middle of the day. Victor and his family were genuinely friendly and helpful lots of suggestions for things to do with children in the area. Highly recommended! Trip Advisor review, August 2014

Secret I One-Bedroom Hello Viktor, Unfortunately our time here in your beautiful city has come to an end. We very much appreciated staying in your lovely apartment, so central to everything. Many thanks again, hope we can make it back one day. Maria and Rob, August 2014

Bougainvilliers Hi Isabelle. We had an amazing time and Dubrovnik is one of the most beautiful cities we have visited. The location of the villa was fantastic being so close to everything and having the pool was so good to cool down on a hot day. Back in Edinburgh now and the temperature is about 15 degrees (about normal for this time of year) so having to get used to it again! Thank you for a wonderful time and we would love to visit again. Eric, August 2014

Villa Le Clos des Vignes We had a fabulous time! Thank you for everything! Ingeborg, August 2014

L’Heure Bleue Hello Viktor and Isabelle, We enjoyed our two-week stay in Dubrovnik very much. Thanks for all!! Peter, August 2014

Divine III Loft We have really enjoyed our holidays in Dubrovnik. Thank you again for a wonderful stay. Robyn, August 2014

Secret IV One/Two-Bedroom My wife and I had stayed there for 3 nights, and our overall experience was great. The apartment is in a great location for restaurants and sight-seeing. The staff was very kind. If I plan to visit Dubrovnik again, I will stay at Secret IV apartment again! Janet T., August 2014

Divine III Loft This apartment was fantastic! The location and size of the place was great. Viktor and Isabelle were very helpful and friendly. We had arranged transportation from the airport to the apartment through them and there were no issues. Viktor met us at the gate to the old town and walked us to the apartment. It was a fabulous stay. Would definitely stay here again. Trip Advisor review, August 2014

Nid d'Amour The flat was small, but there are all you need at the sea, the room view is amazing, the best in Dubrovnik! The situation is really good. Victor is a good host, he met us and explain everything, it's good apartment for your summertime. Maria, August 2014

Picasso Hello Isabelle! Thank you for your assistance. You have been very helpful! We had a fantastic time and loved our apartment a lot. Joanne, August 2014

Divine IV Two-bedroom Divine IV was a practical, small, clean and efficient apartment which is great for a base in the Old Town. Thanks again Lesley, August 2014

Divine III Loft What a gem! Highly recommend!” A friend and I were fortunate to book Divine III during peak season in July. From time of initial contact, Isabelle and Viktor were a pleasure to deal with, exceptionally efficient with correspondence and available to assist us during our stay. Viktor met us outside the Pile gate and showed us to the apartment - it was amazing! Excellent location in amongst the bustle of the Old town, on 3rd floor and remarkably quiet (no lift so be prepared for stairs!). Beautifully kept apartment - as per photos it is a loft and beds are located on a mezzanine with a low roofline so may not be suitable for all. Wifi reliable, information book available with recommended day trips, restaurants etc. Trip Advisor review, August 2014

Thalassa III Three-Bedroom Hi guys We had a great time in Dubrovnik and really enjoyed the Thalassa apartment. The only thing I would improve is that we used a GPS to find the apartment and the location was difficult to find as it wasn't really on the road. Rob, August 2014

La Dolce Vita Excellent quality apartment in the hub of activity. Seamless transfer from airport, very helpful and kind staff. Property of high spec, excellent location however was somewhat noisy into the early hours....to be expected due to central spot. Stayed 3 nights and would highly recommend for short stay. Trip Avisor review, August 2014

Divine IV Two-bedroom Dear Isabelle and Viktor, I'm looking out of a rainy window in Scotland whilst I write this email and am wishing I was back in Dubrovnik where I had a such a wonderful holiday! I'm very glad that I chose to stay in the Divine apartments. Their location was perfect. So central and a wonderful experience to stay within the walls of the beautiful Old Town. The apartments were very clean, modern and well equipped. We had a comfortable stay in both apartments. We took the shuttle bus so can't comment on the transfer but the organisation for swapping apartments was great. We hardly had to wait at all and the move was simple. It was great to be able to get into out apartment immediately when we arrived too. The property descriptions were accurate and the pictures online are realistic - nothing worse than arriving somewhere to be very disappointed that the apartment does not live up to the pictures but both of the ones we stayed in did. The booking process was simple and the welcome book with local information was a good starting point. Your response when we raised the problem about the plug in the bathroom sink was fast and helpful. I had such a wonderful time getting to know Dubrovnik and I wouldn't have enjoyed it so much without wonderful accommodation. I would be very happy to reccommend the apartments to my friends and family. I hope to be back sometime in the future! Many thanks to both of you, Alexandria, August 2014

Nid d'Amour Thanks Victor and Isabelle for having us in this beautiful apartment! We loved it, the view & decoration made it perfect for us. Victor, thanks for all the info on Dubrovnik as well. You are great hosts! Judth, August 2014

MirÓ Studio Apartments Stayed here with a friend for 5 nights. It was a great stay. Clean, comfortable, modern. Maria was extremely helpful. Perfect location for the old town as the apartments at right at Pile Gate. It was a 2 min walk into town. Highly recommended. Stayed August 2014, travelled with friends Trip Advisor review, August 2014

Divine II Studio Thank you so much Isabelle. We've had an amazing stay. Loved every minute. Dubrovnik is so beautiful and the flat Divine studio is great. Take care and thank you for all of your help and Victor. Melissa and Mike, August 2014

La Note Bleue Hallo liebe Isabell, ich melde mich um Ihnen zu sagen, dass wir einen schönen Urlaub hatten. Die Wohnung ist sehr schön. Alles Gute für Sie und Gruß an Victor Beate, August 2014

Secret I One-Bedroom Stayed in Secret apartment 1 for the first three nights of our honeymoon and I couldn't have wished for a better location, facilities or ambience. Just love it! The photos looked great but we were slightly overwhelmed when Vicktor showed us around. He was very friendly, funny and a right treat! Will definitely be returning when we're next in Dubrovnik. It's just an all round picture perfect winner in a cracking location. There's even an acoustic guitarist on the steps outside to top it off! Trip Advisor review, August 2014

Secret II Two-Bedroom Dear Isabelle & Viktor, A quick note to let you know how much I enjoyed my holiday at The Secret Apartments Dubrovnik, between 3 - 7 August, staying with my brother and sister-in-law Rod & Denise. The apartment was very convenient, clean and well appointed, and I loved the Old City, lots of interesting things to see and do. Barbara, August 2014

Divine III Loft 정말 최고의 위치에 최고의 컨디션을 갖추고 있는 아파트 입니다. 두브로부니크의 베스트 아파트라고 생각합니다. 지금 터키에서 한국 돌아가려고 기다리고 있는데 여기 후기는 반드시 남겨야 할 것 같아서 이렇게 씁니다. 우리의 4박5일을 완벽하게 책임진 아파트를 강력하게 추천합니다ㅋㅋ Young, August 2014

L’Heure Bleue Great apartment in a beautiful area! My friends and I really enjoyed our stay at the Heure Bleue apartment. Victor and Isabelle were very helpful hosts. They arranged for a taxi to pick us up from the airport and they were there to meet us on arrival to show us around the apartment and share their hints and tips on things to see and do around Dubrovnik. The apartment was clean and modern with a beautiful balcony view. The location was perfect and had lots to offer and it was easy to get a bus into the old town (or walk into the old town - about an hours walk). I have already recommend this apartment to friends and family. (I would also recommend going on one of the Kayaking trips. And beware of standing on sea urchins if you are swimming near the rocks - they are everywhere!) Trip Advisor review, August 2014

Secret IV One/Two-Bedroom The Secret IV in the old town was the best. The service of the staff was friendly and

professional. Trip Advisor review, August 2014 Secret II Two-Bedroom Amazing apartment! Great location!! Very helpful and delightful staff!!! I will definitely return and urge that if you plan to staff in the old town, you must consider The Secret Apartments! Rafael, August 2014

MirÓ Studio Apartments Nos encantó!”. Sin duda ha sido uno de los mejores estudios en los que he estado. La ubicación es inmejorable, justo al lado de la puerta de pile pero en una callecita cerca del mar fuera del ruido y barullo de los turistas. El estudio es super coqueto, no le falta detalle, son modernos y el espacio está muy bien aprovechado. Se puede decir que tiene las ventajas de un apartamento pero también las de un hotel ya que pasan todas las mañanas a limpiar y cambiar las toallas. Además la cama era cómoda, lo cual no es fácil encontrar en todos los apartamentos. El personal es super simpático y servicial, la verdad es que no tuvimos ningún problema, siempre muy majas las chicas con una sonrisa y muy preocupadas por los apartamentos y que estuviésemos contentos. Hay que destacar que la limpieza es muy buena, todo el día huele a limpio. Cuando vuelva a Dubrovnik la verdad es que no tendré ninguna duda y me volveré a alojar en estos apartamentos, un 10. Trip Advisor review, August 2014

Vue Mer 61 Hi Isabelle & Victor! Both Coconut and Vue Mer 61 apartments were beautiful and in an excellent location. They were very clean with great facilities.

O2 Exclusive Sea Front Apartment “PERFECT apartment for a family visiting Dubrovnik” The apartment could not be better for a family visiting Dubrovnik -- it has two great bedrooms (one for parents, one with bunk beds for kids, plus a pull out couch in another sunroom), a spacious modern kitchen and living area and, best of all, a GORGEOUS view of the Old Town and the island of Lokrum from the balcony. Dubrovnik is very hot in the summer, and the apartment has AC that works well when you need it. The apartment is walking distance to the Old Town, two beaches, groceries and restaurants along a coastal road with great views. The property manager/owner arranged an airport transfer that worked flawlessly, they were accessible, and provided all kinds of information. I cannot imagine finding more perfect accommodation - highly recommend. Keitha, July 2014

Bougainvilliers Villa a perfect property.” Fantastic property with the most beautiful views from a very large terrace. everything you required on the terrace to make your stay comfortable. The rooms in the property were clean and comfortable with a good air con system. The layout and decor were lovely and property was well equiped to cater for all your needs. Butterfly services (viktor & isabelle) were helpful throughout the process from the initial booking right up to our arrival and payment transactions were easy with no complications. The transfers from and to the airport were excellent and the drivers very friendly and informative. the welcome on arrival was lovely and friendly. perfect property, perfect location, Everything about our stay was positive and we thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Dubrovnik. Trip Advisor review, July 2014

L’Heure Bleue Million dollar view! Gorgeous apartment - view that is quite simply breathtaking. The flat is clean, fresh, and bright. Viktor and Isabelle were wonderful hosts who promptly responded to all of our communications (whether by email, text or phone) and were easy and lovely to work with. Viktor was able to arrange transport for us from the airport to the flat and then met us at the flat, making a seamless and very pleasant arrival. TripAdvisor review, July 2014

Butterfly Services I suggested to my friends that they get in touch with you for an apartment. They stayed with you earlier this summer and enjoyed their stay immensely. They said the both of you were wonderful hosts. Gail, July 2014

Divine I One-Bedroom Me and my boyfriend rented this apartment for nine days. We have nothing negative to say about the Divine I apartment. The location is GREAT and you have everything you need. Kitchen/ living room and bedroom is good size. The bathroom was a bit small but that didn't bother us. The small garden belonging to the apartment was great. Nice to be able to relax whit a glass of wine and get away from all the tourist. You can not hear any noise from the street back there. Would definitely recommend this apartment. TripAdvisor review, July 2014

MirÓ Studio Apartments Fantastic location! 30 second walk to Pile Gate to get within the Walls. Clean and modern! No noise at all from street below or any other room. Great air con, friendly helpful staff! No views but this quaint town with narrow streets doesn’t need it, its all apart of the trip! Plenty of very nearby good restaurants and everything reasonably priced I would say. Sea kayaking again only 10 second walk round the corner was very worth while doing we had a fantastic time doing the 3hr sunset kayaking! Would recommend if what you are looking for is a self catering in and out bed for the night with a comfortable stay and perfect location! Thanks Cat, July 2014

La Dolce Vita Attentive and helpful agency staff -immaculate cleanliness throughout including en-suites both bedrooms -beautifully restored/renovated -excellent location -small local supermarket in the square including fresh meat so limited catering easy. Jill, July 2014

Secret I One-Bedroom Fantastic location in heart of Old City. HUGE well furnished apartment. So nice to have a kitchen for breakfasts, though we ate out other meals. Powerful A/C was much appreciated. Very helpful "What To See & Do" booklet from owners. Holly, July 2014

Nid d'Amour Fantastic Apartment overlooking the city. Our stay started with the transfer from the airport to the apartment, this was organised by Viktor who communicated all the details to us very well. The studio apartment itself is fantastic, light and airy, very clean. The temperature does get high in the apartment but air conditioning is included which keeps it sufficiently cool. It was bigger than I originally thought and had big velux windows installed, which you could open up and enjoy the view of the old town, the view is breathtaking! Viktor was very friendly and sat with us upon arrival to show us the apartment and recommend some places to visit in the old town. The apartment itself was very close to the city which meant we never needed a taxi, there are at least three supermarkets near by to stock up on essentials. The building itself and the area is very quiet and when the windows are open you can enjoy the sound of the sea, there is a beach nearby but there are plenty of choices of beach within walking distance. This was our first time renting an apartment, we had a great experience and would recommend renting this apartment to anyone. Trip Advisor review , July 2014

Secret I One-Bedroom We have had a sensational time here and the Secret I apartment was perfect in every way. Our next Croatia stops are Split, Zagreb and Opatija. This certainly started our trip off with a bang! Donna, July 2014

MirÓ Studio Apartments We booked 3 nights with MirO Studio Apartments and we really couldn't have picked a better place. It is extremely conveniently located in close proximity to Pile Gate (entrance to the Old Town), and it was very easy for us to pop in and out if we'd forgotten anything in our room. We got a room on the first floor without a view, which really didn't matter in the grand scheme of things, as you may not spend too much time in your room anyway with so much to see in Dubrovnik! Before we even arrived, I'd gotten in touch with Isabelle (who is very responsive) regarding any recommendations they had and she sent me a very helpful guide that is also available in the rooms. It helped narrow things down in terms of activities and restaurants given we only had a few days there. A tip if you stay here: listen to whatever Viktor and his staff tell you to do! Go where they suggest, eat where they suggest, buy food for a picnic where they suggest. Him and his team won't lead you astray. The room itself was clean, modern and exactly like in the pictures. Isabelle was also very helpful in arranging the airport transfer for us to and from the hotel. Our driver was super and gave us a lot of information on the history of Croatia. We would definitely stay here again next time we are back in Dubrovnik! Trip Advisor review, July 2014

Nid d'Amour If you're looking for an alternative to the overpriced hotels in Dubrovnik, you should definitely consider using the services of Dubrovnik Chic Rentals. They recently assisted me with selecting their "Nid d'Amour" self catering apartment. It was a wonderful choice on many levels. Situated on the top floor of a classic Dalmation stone apartment building on a quiet street, it offers a convenient location just outside the old town. Only a short walk from Pile Gate, restaurants, shopping, grocery stores, public transportation and it offers stunning water views. The apartment offers clean, comfortable accommodations, with contemporary furnishings along with modern bathroom, kitchen and climate control facilities. The Dubrovnik Chic Rentals website is very informative and the online booking process was easy and confirmation prompt. Locating and checking into the property was easy as owner Viktor personally met us and ensured we we comfortable with the apartment's features and provided excellent and useful information for our stay. Viktor also arranged our return transfer to the airport in a modern, clean and comfortable BMW sedan with a friendly and professional driver. I would not hesitate in recommending their services to anyone visiting Dubrovnik and hope to be able to return myself! Tripadvisor review, July 2014

La Maison d’Eté Hi Isabelle We had a wonderful stay and I think the apartment was just fab. However YOU were the best part…so helpful and delightful! I have been to Dubrovnik many times as a child and teen - usually with my parents or on a student budget. When it was time to visit for the first time in over 25 years this summer with my own children, I was determined to find a great location. Maison D’ete did not disappoint! It is literally 200m from the gates of Dubrovnik and right above Banje Beach. The view of the Old Town and ocean from the apartment is breathtaking! The apartment is full stocked with dishes, appliances, EVERYTHING a person could need. We spent all our time outside on one of the two patio areas. Ivana the caretaker was very helpful. I would recommend this spot to anyone I know going to Dubrovnik. The value and most of all the LOCATION is superb~! Tina, July 2014

Divine III Loft "A wonderful little apartment in the heart of the walled city" We stayed 3 nights in the Divine III apartment. It is located on the 2nd floor, under the roof, but with good air conditioning. It is very well equipped with oven, dishwasher, washing machine, a mezzanine bedroom. Located in the heart of the walled city, 2 blocks from Stradun, 3 minutes from the Pile Gate and the daily market in the "flat" (without having to climb stairs). It can come and go, relax and refresh between 2 visits, and therefore take full advantage of this wonderful city. Viktor, the property manager, we found a simple phone call in the fourth hour. It is dynamic, super friendly and humor. He told us as park our car outside the walls without having to pay parking: it just takes a little climb, but it also has beautiful views over the golf. It's really quiet, with views of the gardens, the apartment opens opposite the pedestrian street where Mea Culpa pizzeria, which is signposted from the Onofrio Fountain seat. A really great place, with an excellent quality / price ratio. Tripadvisor review, July 2014

Butterfly Services Hello Victor & Isabelle We had a very enjoyable stay in Rovinj. The Arabesque house was great,

very clean & well equipped. Situated in a perfect location. We did not bother hiring a car which was just as well as the parking would have proved difficult. We took a taxi from Pula airport to Rovinj where Jasmina met us and took us to the house. She was very helpful. We very much appreciate the work you did behind the scenes in organising the whole trip. Everything went great and stress free from the transfer, the check-in process and the assistance we received during our stay in Rovinj. We loved Rovinj old town and the surrounding area, especially cycling the coastal paths. We had some really good evening meals which we found reasonably inexpensive. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. No doubt we will be in touch in 2015. Bob, July 2014

Nid d'Amour Hello Isabelle and Vicktor, We have returned home from our wonderful holiday in Croatia and wanted to extend our thanks for helping make our stay in Dubrovnik a truly memorable one. Working with your website and yourselves proved very easy and informative. We truly enjoyed our stay at “Nid d’Amour” and Viktor’s personal meet and greet was very kind and helpful. Additionally, we were very pleased with the transfer back to the airport. Your driver was very personable and got us safely to the airport in comfort. We truly look forward to a return trip to Dubrovnik and will definitely recommend your services to anyone we know traveling there as well. Thank you again for your very professional and kind assistance. Bruce & Joe, July 2014

Divine II Studio Thanks for all Isabelle. I have enjoyed a lot this beautiful place and the studio. Albert, July 2014

Divine IV Two-bedroom The property was perfect for our stay. We received useful information about currency, supermarkets and attractions in the locality. The property was as described on the website and the instructions to the apartment were clear and understandable. Thanks for a lovely stay. Pam, July 2014

La Dolce Vita Marija was amazing and helped us with everything upon arrival! The Dolce vita apartment was big and spacious and felt like home. We had an amazing stay! Thank you! Sara, July 2014 Secret IV One/Two-Bedroom Exceptional! Excellent service, cental location of the appartment. Had a great time at Secret IV! Svein, June 2014

MirÓ Studio Apartments We stayed in Miro Apartments for 3 nights in June after spending 3 nights in another apartment in the middle of the old city. It was a nice relief as the area is still so close to everything (2 miniute walk to Pile Gate) but quiet & peaceful. A thirty second walk takes you to a beautiful little bay between the city walls & the Fort San Lorenzo. Beautiful in the afternoon to escape the heat & crazyness. The apartment itself was very modern, well appointed and very comfortable. Couldn't fault it at all. On-site management is a plus and Viktor was really helpful with advice on local eating spots & the like. Would highly recommend this apartment & would definately stay again when in Dubrovnik. Tripadvisor review, June 2014

Turquoise bay We loved our stay at the Turquoise bay apartment. We loved how clean and modern It is. it is reasonable price. Welcoming service perfect. Maybe a barbecue grill on the Terrace would be nice ? We strongly recommend It ! Marie Claude, June 2014

La Note Bleue Dear Isabelle, We very much enjoyed our stay in Dubrovnik and will be recommending you to friends and family who wish to visit. It was a lovely area and apartment. Thanks once again. Beverley , June 2014

Secret I One-Bedroom Dear Isabelle, Thank you so much for your kind attention and Viktor attention.!! Everything was perfect, the apartment so nice, your indications, etc. Thank you! Maria, June 2014

Secret IV One/Two-Bedroom Thanks to you and Viktor for providing a wonderful apartment during our stay in Dubrovnik. Croatian people are some of the friendliest people I have met in all the years I have been travelling and your willingness to help people is just wonderful. Thank you! Paul, June 2014

Secret III One-Bedroom This quirky,charming apartment is within the old city walls of Dubrovnik, near St Blaise church. There is a fruit and veg market, a supermarket and plenty of restaurants nearby. Having a basic kitchen is useful, as well as a dining and sitting area. The only potential disadvantage is the 55 stairs to apartment 3, and another flight inside. It's fine for the fit and healthy but wouldn't be suitable for anyone who struggles with stairs. The apartment was spotlessly clean and was well equipped. I thought the pillows were too thin but otherwise it was excellent. I'd be happy to stay there again and will happily recommend it. TripAdvisor review, June 2014

MirÓ Studio Apartments Hi Isabelle and Viktor Thank you for everything you did for us for our stay in Dubrovnik. The apartments were perfect and your staff amazing. I have already placed a review in TripAdvisor so others will know how fab these studios are. I have given you 5* rating! I would have given more! We had a amazing time celebrating our son's wedding in your beautiful city and we will be returning as there is so much to see and do, and we will definitely consider staying with you again if the apartment is available! Many many thanks Jo, June 2014

La Dolce Vita Lovely apartment, couldn't have been better situated. The people who run the apartement were helpful and informative. Luckily I took them up on their offer for an airport transfer as the local buses only tie in with international flights and ours arrived an hour and a half late. The apartment had a large central reception room with a single bedroom at one end and a double at the other, both ensuite. We thought this was the perfect layout. Considering this town is filled with steep stairs, it was great that this apartment was only on the first floor, overlooking a square which had a small local market every morning, as well as a mini supermarket and bakers. Perfect. Corinne, June 2014

Divine II Studio Morning Isabelle! We're off to catch our very early morning bus. Thanks for everything! The apartment was amazing! We very much enjoyed our stay in Dubrovnik. Thanks again! Renee and Marco, June 2014

La Note Bleue As we booked at very short notice the apartment was presented to us rather than us choosing it but we were very pleased with it. It is situated in a very nice area with restaurants and shops close by. A good tip we were told was to take the nearby hotel lift down to the beach area. It has a bedroom with aircon, bathroom with bath and overbath shower plenty of hot water and a washing machine. There is a lounge/diner/kitchen with aircon. A hob and microwave for cooking and equipment.The balcony has 2 sides so gets some sun most of the day with chairs and table. You can access the apartment from up or down levels but either way you have 2 flights of stairs. We arranged airport pickup and drop off through Viktor and they were exactly at the times we required and the price quoted. As our first visit to Dubrovnik we were very pleased so will definitely consider going again. Thank you Isabelle and Viktor for all your help and excellent communication with our booking. Stairwell always smelt nice. Separate key to access building. Says has carparking space although we didnt use it. Plenty of English speaking TV channels TripAdvisor review, June 2014

Secret I One-Bedroom Secret Apt. #1 is very spacious, has everything you need for your stay; the photos are accurate. Location is excellent, right in the old city. Bonus guitar player sings every evening on the steps of the neighboring church -- quite lovely! You'll want to close your windows to sleep as the cafes on the street go late, but it's not an issue. Viktor and Isabelle are very accommodating and full of information on anything you need. It's nice to have the space of an apartment to spread out a bit and relax. Trip Advisor, June 2014

Divine I One-Bedroom My wife and I stayed for 4 nights in June just as the World Cup was kicking off. We were both extremely pleased with the accommodation given both it's central location and the excellent facilities it offered. Divine is perfectly located for accessing everything on offer in the Old Town. We enjoyed being able to open the doors to the bedroom and taking our breakfast outside on the sunny terrace - or sitting in the shade under the orange tree. The terrace was also perfect for sitting out with a book and cold glass of rose wine after a busy day spent sightseeing. The apartment comes very well equipped with wifi, satellite tv, towels, bedding, kitchen & bathroom facilities and even a brolly if required. Viktor organised transport to / from the airport and we were met by Dora who welcomed us to Divine, showed us the facilities and provided local information on recommended bars, restaurants, locations to visit and trips worth considering. I couldn't fault Divine or it's very welcoming owners and would recommend to any couple who wish to have a relaxing enjoyable break in Dubrovnik. TripAdvisor review, June 2014

L'Intemporelle One-Bedroom with terrace Dear Isabelle and Viktor, We stayed in Dubrovnik from June 4th to 7th, 2014. We rented the whole Intemporelle house. The property is well located (it worth walking with luggage), gorgeous decoration, amazing and appreciated terrace, near stores to buy fresh breakfast, all comfort needed, extremely clean. We were a little bit disappointed with the location of the ground floor room on the little street. More noisy and felt like being really in the street... The transfers were great, driver very helpful, on time, vehicle comfortable. Your service was very good, always answered on time and precisely. We will surely recommend this location and keep this address for future holidays. Maryline, June 2014

Le Reve Bleu Lovely Apartment, great views! Apartment exactly as described with a great view over lapad beach and magnificent sunsets every night, will be coming back. Many thanks TripAdvisor review, June 2014

MirÓ Studio Apartments Dear Isabelle and Viktor: We had a very enjoyable stay at Miro. The location was fantastic: so close to the wall, yet quiet at the same time. The close proximity to the taxi stand, bus stand and Tourist Office and the grocery store. The decor was great, it was immaculate and very well equipped. We turned the 2 leather chairs around so they faced out to the sea and it would have been nice to have a small table between them to put an appetizer and a glass of wine on. The Transfer/Information received/general service: 10/10. The two different staff we worked with were friendly, courteous and helpful. Thank you, it was a very enjoyable experience and we will be recommending your apartment to our friends. Rick and Susan, June 2014

Butterfly Services Hi Isabelle, We are now home in rainy Scotland, having left the beautiful sunshine of Dubrovnik this morning. We really enjoyed our stay. Dubrovnik and the surrounding area is truly beautiful. I have written a review on TripAdvisor reflecting our enjoyment of our stay. Thanks again for your time and attention, and to Viktor for his help on our arrival and departure. Linda, June 2014

Divine I One-Bedroom Dear Isabelle and Viktor, Many thanks for looking after us in Dubrovnik - we'll be back soon, with the children! The flat was lovely, perfectly situated in the heart of the old town. The courtyard was a lovely addition and the ideal place for breakfast or pre dinner drinks. I hope to use your excellent company again. Allison, June 2014

La Maison d’Eté Dear Isabelle and Viktor, My husband, step daughter, and I enjoyed our stay in Dubrovnik so very much! Thank you for your efforts in helping us find La Maison de l'Ete Apartment; it suited us perfectly. Even before arriving in Croatia, your services in helping us to locate an apartment, as well as your timeliness, and thoroughness in correspondence was very much appreciated. Your notes were very prompt and professional but with a personal touch which to me felt welcoming and secure in booking with your agency. It was wonderful to be met at the airport by the driver you had arranged. He was punctual and welcoming. My husband enjoyed speaking with him as we drove into Dubrovnik. Ivana met us at the door of her home (ours for the week) with a big welcome which was lovely after more than twenty four hours of traveling! The apartment was impeccably clean and perfect for our family of three. We enjoyed all of the art work Ivana's family had displayed as well as the beautiful antique furniture. The views were everything we had hoped they would be. We enjoying breakfasts and a few glasses of wine out on the lovely terrace. Anything one would need was available to us within the apartment in terms of linens and kitchen supplies. Having two markets so close was very convenient. I am a flight attendant for American Airlines so over the years my family and I have been very fortunate to have been able to travel to different places. Dubrovnik is a very unique city and we loved it! We have stayed in various apartments in other foreign cities and by far La Maison de l'Ete is our favorite! We will definitely plan another trip to Croatia in the future! Thank you for helping to make our holiday so wonderful. We will always have great memories of our first trip to Dubrovnik, Croatia!

Bougainvilliers I could not fault this place, it was lovely. The terrace and pool made the Bougainvilliers apartment, they were amazing, and perfect to sunbathe during the day, and sit and relax in the evening. It was clean, and the owners were very helpful and friendly, arranging our transfers both ways. You can easily walk to the centre, but there are a lot of stairs, which was fine for us (ages 30-50) but would be something to take into account before you book if you would struggle with this. I would not hesitate to recommend this place, and we would certainly hope to head back in the future!. Sadie, May 2014 Divine II Studio This studio is a perfect loction and has everything you need to enhance your trip in Dubrovnik. We were so please with not only the apartment its self but the owner as well who met us at the gate and showed us the way to the apartment. He was very helpful with restaurant reviews etc as well. Would recommend this place to every friend that visits! Nora, May 2014

Secret I One-Bedroom Like Walking into a Dream The large white room, high ceilings, the curtains fluttering in the breeze, the rose damask covered sofa and chairs, the white table and then into the large bedroom and modern bath. All of this beside St. Blaise Cathedral where every evening a guitarist played the classics and standards for three hours. So good, we bought a CD. An excellent restaurant on the first floor, though a quiet one. The open air fruit, vegetable and flower market is just around the corner. A convenience store in the same plaza. In the other direction the town's promenade lined with cafes and stores, to see and be seen. Isabelle and Viktor are gracious, charming and informative hosts. So many ideas of what to do and see we should have stayed longer. Dubrovnik was a great experience, made wonderful by the apartment and hosts. Trip Advisor review, May 2014

Butterfly Services Dear Isabella, I would like to express my sincere thanks to your time, kind help and assistance that have been extended to me these past few days! You have been extremely prompt, efficient and helpful despite this busy, peak season! I will keep the information on the properties that you are managing for my future reference! Once again, thanks for everything! Haeyoung Lee , May 2014

Plein Coeur II One-Bedroom We very much enjoyed our stay in Dubrovnik and the Plein Coeur apartment, which was modern, spacious and so close to everything. Tiny bathroom, but it worked. We had one problem with getting on the wireless and simply called Mia who'd left us her cell phone number, and she helped us right over the phone. She was also helpful with dinner recommendations and some hints of how to get around. And our special thanks to you and your staff for being so helpful to us when we had to call the US about the problem with our credit card; can't believe how you all went the extra mile with us about this. We would never use any other agency if we returned to Dubrovnik and will recommend you to anyone we know planning a trip there; you guys are special. We definitely got value for the price and it was nice to be able to spread out. Thanks again for everything, Isabelle and Viktor both. Linda, May 2014

L'Intemporelle Double Room - Ground Floor Our stay was very nice in all points. The unique drawback is the distance from Main Door and facility to drive the luggages. I suggest the use of a trolley. Thanks a lot. Giovanni Ricardo , May 2014

Au 8 House Hi Isabelle! We have been very satisfied by the services provided by you and your team. The Au 8 house exceeded our expectations. Perfect location, intimate atmosphere, clean bed sheets and quiet nights… this is what we find important and has been delivered. Also the pick up at the city gate was arranged to perfection. Your host was waiting for us and walked us to the house where we arrived within minutes. I have recommended our experience to friends & colleagues and will not hesitate to book again for our next visit in Dubrovnik ! Michiel, May 2014

Secret IV One/Two-Bedroom Many thanks for comfort accommodation in the city of Dubrovnik. We had a very good time there and our holiday was successful. All worked very well, the accommodation and service was perfect. We would willingly like to recommend this accommodation to our friends. Erkki, May 2014

Secret I One-Bedroom First time in Dubrovnik and we were very lucky to choose The Secret Apartments. They contacted us by email before we arrived to check arrival time and sent an SMS once we had landed confirming we'd be met by them once we arrived in Dubrovnik. We were met by Viktor who was really helpful and gave us tips and advice for places to eat and visit and started our 3 day visit with great service. The apartment was large with high ceilings a functional kitchen, which we did not use as there are so many places to eat but there is a open air market and supermarket 30 yards away if you wanted to make use of it. The rooms were large with windows opening onto the street at the front with the church opposite so quite private. The bed was nice and comfy and it had a bath and shower. I would highly recommend the apartment for couples on a weekend break, you could probably sleep more, maybe there was a sofa bed but we did not check. Trip Advisor review, May 2014

Acqua Great location, handy for everywhere! Great property well appointed lovely and clean There was no coffee machine but the owner ended up bringing her own over - Great transfer both ways friendly and knowledgeable drivers - particularly on arrival which is really important as it sets the tone for the holiday-. Good communication between booking and the holiday. We booked quite early so it was helpful to remind us what we had booked and when. It also helps to increase the excitement about the trip. Your service was very good - wifi in the apartment really helped so that we could be in touch by email. Thanks. Adrian, May 2014

Secret III One-Bedroom We stayed in the Secret Apartment in Old Town Dubrovnik. The #3 is on 2 floors, bedroom and bathroom on the 3rd floor and the kitchen and lounge is another few stairs above that. The apartment to very nice and a nicely stocked kitchen. It is right next to the St. Blaise Church, in fact you might get a shock when you are lying in bed and the bells ring. The owners Isabelle and Viktor are so helpful and always responded to emails in a timely fashion. I think I would be tempted to not stay in Old Town Dubrovnik again as it is just was too much like Disney with all the tourist, I would prefer to stay in one of the other villages and take a bus to the old town. BUT - if I ever did stay in Old Town again, it would be at the Secret Apartments. They are excellent. Sharon, May 2014

Secret I One-Bedroom Dear Isabelle and Viktor, I wanted you personally to know how much we enjoyed Secret I apartment, but especially you. Amicalement Townsend, May 2014

Secret III One-Bedroom Hello Viktor! Thanks again for the awesome place to stay! Chris, May 2014

Coconut Hi Isabelle, Well it is a pleasure to let you know about Coconut Apartment as we all thought it was ideal for our purposes , the apartment itself was situated near enough to the Old Town walls to be handy but in a quiet situation.The actual furnishing and decor of the apartment was first class and the views from any of the three balconies was superb so you could say we were extremely happy with it.The owners who live on site were first class , helpful in all ways but left you alone to get on with your holiday ,they were there to greet us on arrival and show us around and answer any questions we had so must recommend them very highly.As for yourselves I found you very good with any help and information needed and would certainly recommend you to any friends going to your area for a holiday, and certainly contact you again ourselves if we return to the area. Paul, May 2014

Turquoise bay Merci... Nous profitons encore quelques instants de la terrasse au soleil. Je garde votre adresse

précieusement, c'était fabuleux!!! Anne, May 2014

Secret I One-Bedroom We stayed in the 2nd floor apartment pictured, with the floral lounge suite and white furniture. It is an apartment for two, with a comfortable double bed, modern bathroom with bath and shower, a compact but workable kitchen and huge windows that open onto an alley leading to the main plaza at the end of the Placa, opposite the church of St Blaize. It is very well equipped and very comfortable, although it is a little noisy as it is in the centre of everything with the hustle and bustle of restaurants below and the church bells ringing regularly. However there is a classical guitarist who plays outside every night when things become quieter and the cruise ship tourists have disappeared and the music will fill the apartment which is absolutely lovely. We were dropped off at the gate at the opposite end of the Placa (not the port end) and it was a flat level 2 mins walk to the apartment (there is a ramp at the gate), then 2 flights of stairs within the apartment. Our stay in Dubrovnik was wonderful. Everything was in easy walking distance, including a couple of supermarkets and a small daily farmers market in the square behind the apartment. Dubrovnik is certainly an interesting destination, with a long history, and the apartments are the perfect place to experience it all. Trip Advisor review, April 2014

Divine III Loft We rented two Divine apartments in the same unit and both were great. Very clean and very well maintained. They were in a great location in old town, which made it very easy to get around. They had all the amenities needed. Also, the property manager, Viktor, was extremely nice and helpful. As a local he was able to give us great guidance on what to see and do, especially given the fact that the weather was not great. Certainly the best property manager I've ever encountered. Tyhuff, April 2014

Secret IV One/Two-Bedroom Dear Viktor and Isabelle, we had a very nice experience in the apartment. Excellent located and very comfortable. Abel, April 2014

MirÓ Studio Apartments We have just returned from a 4 night stay at the Miro Studio Apartments. The apartment was spotlessly clean, light modern and the bed was so comfortable. We were so fortunate to have a room with a magnificent view of the sea and the fort, absolutely stunning. The location of the apartment could not have been better. You are literally minutes away from the city gates and the same to the beautiful bay were you can snorkel and hire a kayak. There are lots of nice restaurants in the town and shops bars, galleries etc. Would recommend going out of season as we did, as the city has an invasion of around 60,000 people in high season, due to the arrival of cruise ships. To sum it up, Dubrovnik is a beautiful city and I would definitely recommend it. Trip Advisor review, April 2014

MirÓ Studio Apartments Perfect in every way! This was the most perfect accommodation. I could not find fault with any aspect of it. Location was central to everything. I would highly recommend these apartments and I would also stay there again Jason, April 2014

Secret II Two-Bedroom Dear Victor and Isabel, Many thanks for a wonderful stay at your beautiful apartment. It was not only convenient but simply delightful! Faried, April 2014

Divine II Studio Excellent stay in the heart of the old town in Dub! Very nice apartment in the heart of Dubrovnik. Friendly and helpful owners. We had a great stay! Ole, April 2014

Butterfly Services Dear Isabelle & Viktor, Once again, thank you so much for all your very prompt and informative replies, Butterfly Services really have been a joy to deal with.I will be in touch nearer the time about transfers etc, and good to know that luggage can be stored if necessary. We are coming over for a relatives wedding and Dubrovnik really does look a beautiful place for the occasion, so really looking forward to it all. Karen, March 2014

Secret IV One/Two-Bedroom Isabelle & Viktor of Butterfly Services did a great job helping us coordinate a group of friends with places to stay in Dubrovnik. Isabelle spent a lot of time helping us to find the locations that best served the needs of our group & was very prompt in her responses. The property descriptions were very accurate. La Dolce Vita & Secret IV were both exactly as described, clean & very centrally located in the old town. Viktor went out of his way to give us advice on places to eat & drink & his recommendations were spot on. I would definitely recommend Butterfly Services highly - you won't be disappointed! TripAdvisor review, March 2014

Butterfly Services I enjoyed looking at the photos of all the beautiful properties you have for let as I tried to decide which was the best one for us! I received your and Viktor's email yesterday, with the very useful attached "Welcome" document - it looks like we will have a lovely time in Dubrovnik, and I'm looking forward to my first visit to Croatia!Thank you for arranging the airport transfer, that will make our arrival much more relaxing.Thanks for all your help.Andrew, January 2014

Dear Viktor and Isabelle,We had a fabulous time in Dubrovnik made all the better by the beautiful apartment. It exceeded all expectations and was even better than the photographs suggested. The location was perfect with a stunning view which we loved admiring from the superb balcony. It was lovely to have breakfast there in the morning and drinks in the evening. The walk into the Old a town from there is beautiful and the walk back very good for us after our extensive dinners! The Turquoise apartment was exceptionally well equipped and Mario was very helpful and informative. I have already recommend your services to a number of people and will certainly use you again in the future if back in Dubrovnik. Thank you once again. Jill. October /November 2013

 

L'Intemporelle is extremely well located for all Old Town activities and especially for the ferries. It was spotless on arrival, is beautifully decorated and appointed and has good facilities for making hot drinks. The fridge was appreciated and was useful for storing snacks and cold food for picnic lunches. The shower room is bijou but, again, very nicely appointed and the shower works very well. Viktor met us in the Old Town on arrival and was extremely welcoming and helpful and altogether very charming. He gave us enough useful information to get us through the following few days and then invited us to visit his nearby office for a further chat. His suggestions were spot on and enhanced our trip no end, especially information on nearby bars, restaurants and places to go further afield. He really could not have been more helpful or knowledgeable.- Our only issues during the week were 1) the boiler thermostat had not been set high enough - this was remedied by Viktor very quickly once we had informed him, and 2) there is a certain amount of street noise due to the property's position near an entry point for the city wall walk. This is probably unavoidable wherever you are within the old city and the property was, at least, quiet enough overnight.- All-in-all, a most enjoyable week, our first in Croatia. We shall certainly return, a decision reached in no small part because of the charm of this little property and the excellent service we received throughout from Viktor. We can heartily recommend both! thankyou for looking after us, Viktor. Peter, September 2013

 

“All correspondence about the apartments beforehand was responded to quickly. We were met at the airport and transferred to the Secret IVApartment which is within the historic walls. It is in a fabulous position right around the corner from St Blaise, the main cathedral as well as the Stradum. There are no stairs to the building but about 40 stairs inside to the apartment. We wanted some extra space for our adult son and it was perfect. He had his own bedroom and bathroom and we had ours. In between was a small kitchen with a table and chairs, a few appliances, a stove and a fridge which was enough for us as we only had breakfast there. If you didn't need the second bedroom you could use it as a lounge area. Everything was very clean and new. Help was at hand if we needed it. The recommended restaurants were fabulous and we walked everywhere as we were not far from anything. It was lovely at night to hear music from the cathedral or square but otherwise it was very quiet. We had a wonderful time and were very happy with the service. They collected us from the apartment on our last day and walked us to their agency just outside the gates where we left our bags until later in the day when we had arranged for their driver to return us to the airport. I would definitely stay there again. Jan, October 2013

“We had a wonderful time at Bougainvillers. Great location for a romantic getaway and enjoyed it immensely. Location is perfect for Old town wandering and private relaxing. Wireless internet was excellent. Transfer was very timely and efficient - should be highlighted in your offering. The return driver in particular was very courteous. All Information received was accurate and current. Check in was painless and Lara very courteous. Your Service Excellent - very responsive and timely. We will certainly use your services again for our next visit and i have recommended you highly within my community. There are many Americans affiliated with the US Government in Germany that look for the type of accommodations you offer. I assess it as an untapped market”. Dan and Cindy, October 2013

La Dolce Vita apartment was of a standard of a 4/5* hotel with the convenience of being able to control our environment such that we felt at home. Location was perfect and we found a superb restaurant at the top of the stairs to the right of the apartment. Here location and food were second to none and we wish we had found it earlier. Apartment comfort was good, although we found the TV and satellite a little difficult to navigate at first but perhaps that was due to holiday mode!.The transfer was excellent and matched the apartment; a comfortable chauffeur driven car was a lovely start to the holiday. Viktor met us and gave a nice guided tour on the way to the apartment and again this was appreciated.The general admin and description of the apartment was helpful and in fact we spoke to Isabelle before coming and this contact was welcomed. We can find little fault was the overall experience, apart from this being too short a stay, in fact the advice given by Victor on where to eat when we took a boat trip further up the coast was again very good and summed up the welcoming and positive approach taken by both Isabelle and Viktor, thank you to both of you. Ian and Pauline, August 2013

“Everything about the holiday you provided was excellent. La Note Bleue apartment was clean and lovely. Victor gave us a very good and useful information about the area, restaurants and places to visit, we found it very helpful. It was great that we could stay at the apartment on our last day as our flight was late in the day and we didn't have to move out until our transfer time.The transfer was perfect, both ways, a lovely vehicle, and friendly service.We would recommend Butterfly Services to anyone, it was a truly wonderful service you provide. Thank you for everything. Abi , October 2013

“ Dear Isabelle and Victor, We very much enjoyed our stay at Acqua apartment. No complaints whatever about comfort, cleanliness and facilities. It is a lovely apartment. Our main complaint was the climb up to the apartment as we are both elderly. The nearby hotel was closed from mid-september, so there was no way we could use the lift. We could have been told about this before our arrival. In the end we managed but only just. Booking was very easy and we got very prompt responses from yourselves. We did not call you while in Dubrovnik. Perhaps we should have used you more. Maybe a little map in the apartment of where exactly your office is would have encouraged us to drop in and see you. Just using the telephone is much too impersonal for us. In general, we came away with a good impression and would recommend you to our friends. Michael, October 2013

Hi Isabelle,! thanks for everything and we had a great time in Dubrovnik and at the Divine studio. Ignaccio, September 2013

“Lovely 1bdrm apartment ( La Note Bleue) conveniently located: short walk to bus stop (going into the city), restaurants, beach area and market. The apartment has a parking spot which was important for us. One of the best things about renting this apartment is Viktor/Butterfly services. The service is fantasic, restaurant recommendations and where to go/what to see on point every time. Be prepared for steps or hills getting to and from the pedestrian area. A walk around the peninsula makes for a great start in the morning. When going into the city we took the bus and although quite crowded at times was convenient and easy. Can't say enough about Viktor and Isabelle, would stay at any property Butterfly managed”. Jacqueline, October 2013

“The perfect place from which to explore Dubrovnik, right in the heart of town. Both comfortable and elegant, this well-equipped apartment -Secret 1-was even nicer than we expected from the other good reviews we read”. Trip Advisor, October 2013

“YOUR service was wonderful and we would use you again without a doubt. You were very helpful, always answering all of our questions. Thank you! Guy, October 2013

“ Isabelle, We completed our trip advisor review prior to leaving Dubrovnik so we could rave about the beautiful little Secrets IV apartment. Your staff was lovely and we truly enjoyed our visit to Croatia. We thank you and your team for their hospitality. Emaly, October, 2013

Hi Isabelle and Viktor - We had a great stay at the Aramis apartment in October! The apartment itself was spotlessly clean, very comfortable, and in a great location in the heart of the old town. It was great to have basic kitchen facilities like a fridge and coffee maker. We enjoyed our breakfasts at the little table with the view toward the top of the mountain! Arrival and check-in went very smoothly - we met the owner near the cathedral and she showed us the place. The only downside of the location is the noise in the morning - it sounded like trash collecting? It started quite early - 6 or 7 AM. Other than that we had a wonderful time and hope to return to Dubrovnik someday! Jessie, October 2013

“Visitors to Dubrovnik could not wish to find a more perfect apartment in this beautiful medieval city. Situated in an old building next to the Church of St Blaise & busy central square, our apartment Secret III was located on the third floor - so could be a little taxing if carrying heavy bags! We spent 3 nights in this lovely apartment in the centre of the old city. It's extremely spacious with a good size bathroom, large double bedroom & upstairs; an open plan kitchen, dining & cosy lounge areas. All rooms are pleasantly furnished, clean & well equipped. Although centrally situated, unwanted noise was not a problem unless visitors dislike the sound of the Spanish guitar wafting up to the apartment each night from the restaurant below! On our arrival we were met at the entrance gate to the old city walls by Viktor who took us to our apartment. His knowledge of the city & tips for the best places to eat & drink (& what to avoid) were invaluable to us during our stay. We loved every minute”. Trip Advisor, October 2013

“A very very positive experience of The Secret Apartments right from the very beginning when we made our reservation. Excellent communication via email with Vikor prior to our arrival. He arranged for a driver to meet us at the arrivals hall at Dubrovnik airport and drive us the Ploce Gate entrance to the Old Town. Viktor was waiting for us, even though it was quite late on a Sunday evening. He escorted us all the way to the apartment, Secret II, and then gave us maps and various tips and recommendations of places to visit as well as restaurants and shops. The apartment was lovely, very clean and very well equipped and the location could not have been better. It is very central to the major attractions and sights in the Old Town. As 3 females we found it a very safe place to be even late at night. Some people may not find it very relaxing to be staying right in the heart of the Old Town in all the hustle and bustle but we loved it and found it thrilling to be in the middle of such a vibrant place. We loved our time in Dubrovnik and would definitely recommend the city and Butterfly Services to others. Sarah, October 2013 Hello Isabelle and Viktor, We were very happy with your services and preparation for our accommodation. The Transport/pick-up from airport was great as well. We were also very delighted with the "honeymoon treat" you left us. The wine and chocolate were delicious! We would most definitely recommend your services to others. Our only concern with the 02 property was mostly the mold in the bathroom and smell. We appreciate how quickly the problem was resolved. The rest of the property was absolutely beautiful and the location and view were perfect. We had a great time in Dubrovnik! Thanks so much, Stef and Colin, October 2013

We had a great stay in the apartment – MirO no 5. Unfortunately the room doesn't have the sea view but with the window open the sound of waves crashing nearby is very relaxing. The main plus point is the excellent location very close to the main bus stop, tourist information office, cafes, mini supermarket and ideal for quick access to the walled city. You get all the benefits without the crowds and noise within the city walls. The apartment is spotlessly clean with all the facilities you need and Vicktor is very approachable if you need assistance. The only very minor picky criticism is that the cheap bathroom towels are thin and a bit ragged. Also the hairdryer is one of those tiny travel type and not much use if you have long hair and in a hurry. But aside from these insignificant issues, I cannot recommend the apartment highly enough. Trip Advisor review, October 2013

“ Location location location. What a great apartment. The Divine studio apartment is located right in the centre of the old town of Dubrovnik. If you have been out it is possible to freshen up and go back out into the old town. The facilities and TV are super. It is right next to St Dominos church where several charming music recitals are held each week. It is above the Mea Culpa pizza restaurant which serves the most enormous pizzas. Trip Advisor, October 2013

Peaceful, ideal spacious apartment in Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik is hilly, hilly, hilly. The Divine I apartment is just off the Strada w/ no hills at all to get there (from Pile Gate). (There is one flight of stairs to get to apartment.) The apartment is absolutely well appointed (cups, glassware for all types of beverages, full kitchen, great water pressure, etc.). The garden terrace off the bedroom is a wonderful, peaceful respite. Great place to eat in the morning, and even better in the evening w/ a bottle of wine, snacks, and an ample place to enjoy reviewing our day, as well as to plan the next (or just read). Would absolutely stay here again - - highly recommend. (As this is an apartment there is no daily linen, clean-up service.) Trip Advisor, October 2013

Thanks for everything. We had a very lovely stay in Dubrovnik and at Divine I Apartment. Frances, October 2013

We stayed in the Secrets III Duplex apartment in early October. The bedroom and bathroom are on the lower floor with the open plan living room in the upper storey which is actually the roof space of this lovely old building. It was lovely, clean and well appointed. The open plan kitchen was fine and you could have self catered with no problem other than you are surrounded by great places to eat all over Dubrovnik. The location is fantastic, absolutely at the heart of the old town, so no walking up and down the steep sides of the city. It is right next to St. Blaise church but beware the bells! and those of the Cathedral that bong out of sync with those of the church. Other than that the apartment is extremely quiet. It is on the top floor so there are a few steps to climb if that is an issue for you. Our flight arrived extremely early and we had asked for an early booking in if that was possible. Sorted easily and we arranged to meet a staff member at a nearby statue, really friendly and efficient. I had read the reviews prior to going but the apartment was actually better than expected. (Only gripe being no hook for the shower hose so had to hold it over our heads). Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone looking for a comfortable stay in the heart of a historic location. Trip Advisor, October 2013

“As Game of Thrones fans we decided to have a 3 night stay in Dubrovnik where Kings landing is filmed. The MirO Apartment was very easy to get to from the airport (via the shuttle bus to the city walls) and to find after a quick trip to the tourist information to point us in the right direction. Check in says 6pm but we arrived at 10am and luckily the room was ready and we were welcomed in which was great. Very convenient location as it is a stones throw from the old city and right next to the pier used in the filming of game of thrones. Room was clean and modern, shower was lovely and bed was comfy. Free wifi was great for looking up restaurants to visit. Unless you get one of the top apartments you will have a view of a wall but we don't mind that as we didn't spend a lot of time in the room as you want to spend as much time as possible exploring the city. walking the city walls is a must and the cable car is fun. Great location for a short break”. Trip Advisor, October 2013

Dear Isabelle, dear Viktor. We were very happy with our stay in Dubrovnik. Your services were fantastic, you were very reliable, the transfer worked perfectly the whole information received was very helpful! Also, everything went smoothly. The property Au Temps retrouve was very nice and well located. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are sure to return to Dubrovnik! Thank you very much for your help. Muriel , August 2013

I have to say we were very impressed with the Coconut apartment which was amazing. It was clean, tidy and well equipped but also had outside areas affording the most glorious views of Dubrovnik. The location was central enough to walk to the old town yet far enough out to afford the most spectatular views. The transport provided to us both ways was excellent. I loved the whole Dubrovnik experience thanks to the excellent service provided by yourselves and would very much like to do the whole thing again. Sue, August 2013

Isabelle, We had an excellent stay Jardin Bleu . thank YOU!!! Karl, July 2013

“We really had a great time in Dubrovnik, loved the market in front of the apartment La Dolce Vita and ended up going to the Elephrati Islands and Lokrum which was amazing. Viktor we all think you should have your own television show. Nina keeps telling Viktor stories about you leaping out of nowhere to surprise her!Thanks for making our stay wonderful. “Anna. September 2013

“ Hi Isabelle & Victor, thank you some much we had the most amazing time, and loved the 02 apartment . I am sure we definitely be back again we love Dubrovnik, thank you for your help and as always your very attentive..Many thanks and hope your both well. Kristina, September 2013

“We loved staying within the old city walls of Dubrovnik at la Dolce Vita apartment. Every morning there was a small market in the little square in front of the apartment that we used to buy fresh cheeses and fruit for breakfast. The apartment itself is extremely comfortable and light with every facility you need. The noise at night from the cafes below wasn't a big deal for us, and was finished by late evening. I agree with a previous review said says it is a small trade off for staying in the old town. The hosts Viktor and Isabelle went out of their way to help us and suggest great day trips to islands close by. I would definitely stay here again”. Trip Advisor, September 2013

“ We had an excellent holiday in which was enhanced with the marriage of our son Callum and Kristina on Lokrum. Dubrovnik is beautiful, it's so clean. The pick up from the airport after an initial in identifying our taxi as the driver was holding a sign for the villa and not in our name, however the ride he was friendly and very polite. Friendly welcome at the accommodation and “La Maison de l'Ete” was lovely. Views over the bay exceptional, double glazed windows kept the noise from the night club down. Villa was well provisioned for those who we're going to cook, we only breakfasted there and ate out for all other meals. Beds comfortable. Overall a most enjoyable holiday. Nic, September 2013

“We had a delightful stay at the Aramis Apartment, and Dubrovnik. Your service and responsiveness to our inquires far exceeded our expectations. You were very timely and everything worked at out well. The accommodations were superb, very well located right behind the cathedral. The decor, comfort, and facilities (even a washing machine) were fine, and the apartment was spotless. The only thing I wish was different was that we found out all the trash from around the area was put right below the wall separating the apartment building from the roadway behind the cathedral - in other words, right below our window. The trash collection and recycled collect equipment was very noisy every morning - but if you kept the windows and shudders closed, the noise wasn't bad. And every morning, crews washed the area with high pressure hoses, so the area was very clean! The distance one has to lug baggage from the Ploce Gate to the apartment is not for the faint of heart! Everything was done well; the driver and vehicle were fine. In fact we hired the driver for a day! I had to call the gal that was going to meet us because we were confused as to which church she would be by - but it all worked out. You did a superb job of providing good information about the process, accommodations and what to expect; everything worked as advertised and that made for a very enjoyable experience in Dubrovnik. Thanks for the great service!We would not hesitant to strongly recommend your company to any of our friends or family traveling to Dubrovnik!” James, September 2013

Divine studio is a great little apartment in the middle of the Old Town. On arrival I called the owners who were there to let me in within 15 minutes. The apartment is a little small but a perfect location in the middle of Dubrovnik. It's above a restaurant with pavement tables, so expect some background noise at night - but nothing too annoying. 10 minute walk from the Pile Gate so good for airport bus. I had a very nice stay. Thank you. Kevin, September 2013

“Every aspect of MirO studio apartments is superb. The central location is ideal for sightseeing and near to amenities yet still very quiet and peaceful. The rooms are well furnished with cooking, tv, DVD and in room wi-fi facilities making it a perfect base from home. We made prior arrangements with the owners, Isabelle and Viktor, for a driver to collect us from the airport. This was arranged making transfers easy particularly as we were travelling with a young child. Viktor was also able to recommend us on various sites and restaurants to visit. I would highly recommend MirO studio apartments to anybody considering a visit to Dubrovnik”. Trip Advisor, October 2013

“Just a quick e-mail to thank you for our stay at MirO studio apartments last week. We had a really good time in Dubrovnik and the accommodation and your help with airport transfers and advice made everything easier, Thanks again” Chris, Lynsey and Daniel October 2013

“Dear Isabelle and Victor, We had a lovely time In Dubrovnik. Marianna looked after us well when we were there and recommended lots of activities and restaurants which were great. Also arranged our transfer to airport which was excellent. We found the MirO apartment well appointed and in a great location to explore Dubrovnik. With thanks”. Maureen and Brian, October 2013

"Isabelle, Je voulais vous remercier pour les informations que vous m'avez données avant notre voyage à Dubrovnik. On a passé de superbes vacances. Je tenais absolument à vous faire part de notre entière satisfaction. L'appartement Green nest était tout simplement idéal, on ne pouvait pas mieux espèrer. Merci encore, ce fut vraiment une excellente expérience. Vanessa. October 2013

“Ms. Toyoda wanted you to know that she loved the room and said she had the best 3 days staying at your Intemporelle property. Thank you very much!, Travel Agent from Japan, September 2013

“Hi Isabelle and Viktor! Thank u again for everything ! we have told all our family and friends about the wonderful stay and service from you. We will definitely be recommending your locations to our guests! Keep in touch with your new website and info! Kate ;). September 2013

"We recently stayed in this beautiful apartment La Dolce Vita when visiting Dubrovnik. It is in a wonderful location approximately 30 steps from the old town's main square - and overlooks a nice market in the mornings. The apartment was beautiful, modern and clean. It came with great amenities such as air-conditioning (which is not all that common in Croatia), a washing machine and fast WiFi. All linens and an ample number of towels were also provided and the kitchen was very well stocked. The beds were very comfortable and there was a lot of common space to relax in. The people who managed the property were extremely helpful and had no problem answering my many questions. They escort you right to the apartment as well, which is nice as the old town isn't that easy to navigate when you first arrive. There is also a place to store your baggage in case you arrive in town before check-in or leave after check-out, however, check-in and check-out times are also pretty flexible. The managers were also very helpful in recommending things to do and places to go while in Dubrovnik and provided maps and coupons for activities. They arranged for us a great day at sea as well which was extremely reasonable in price and a highlight of our trip. If I ever return to Dubrovnik I will definitely stay here again. Trip Advisor, September 2013

“ After arriving via the airport bus and following the detailed and easy instructions on how to reach the apartment we were greeted by someone calling my name down the street. Viktor, the host, had been expecting us and was looking out for us. It was a nice greeting to receive. Viktor gave us a very informative briefing on the area, and what to do and what to avoid. The location of the apartments is amazing. We were also extremely lucky to have the top floor apartment with sea views. We spent quite a lot of time seated at the windows gazing out at the view. These apartments are located outside of the old city walls which is better as I think it would be too noisy within them. It is only a 5 minutes to the old city. The amenities in the MirO apartment have everything you would need, allowing you to buy food and drinks in the supermarket and prepare at the room. They are light, airy and modern with good air conditioning. The stairs for the apartments are also well maintained and clean. Overall this is a fantastic place to stay and I would definitely recommend and will use again as we loved Dubrovnik”. Trip Advisor, September 2013

“ I found the secrets apartment 2 online and from the photos thought it looked very nice. I wasn't disappointed when we arrived! From a few days before we arrived Isabelle and Viktor from Butterfly Services were in contact via email and arranged our personal pick up from the airport to Ploce Gate at the entrance to the city, at a very good rate may I add! Viktor met us here and helped us walk with our bags in about under 2 mins to our destination...the beautifully renovated Secret Apartments 2! Viktor was very efficient and friendly, giving us advice on things to do and both his and Isabelle's telephone no's to contact 24/7 if we had any problems. There were four of us stayin here and every night we couldn't believe how central we were! Right next door to st Blaise's church in fact! Another bonus was that every night at around 6 a beautiful classical musician played the guitar at a restaurant outside and if you open the window you can have a private concert while you get ready after a day of discovering Dubrovnik. I can't recommend this apartment enough. We certainly will be returning for you can't beat the location, value, and a personal service. Thank you again Isabelle and Viktor! :). Kate, September 2013

“ Victor runs the place. He is an excellent host. We arrived late and he was waiting for us to show our apartment. The apartment located near to the main entrance of the Old city. Less than 5 minutes walk you are at the main street of the old city. The apartment has all the facillites you need and free WiFi. Its new modern fresh. Just around the corner is alittle cove with blue water and fantastic view of the castle. At the same place there is a small restaurant (name OSMAN) by the water where you can have a full breakfast paying half price from the cafe's insight the Old City. Ask Victor and he will give you fantastic tips, what to see and where to eat around. Thank you victor for recomending us the Bungenvila Restaurant in Cavtat. Superb Food, very logical prices. I highly recommend the Miro Sudio Apartments!!!” Trip Advisor, September 2013

“ My family and I loved our stay at Bougainvilliers apartment. My daughters loved having their own rooms, each with their own doors onto the terrace. We loved having a pool. The wireless connection works great which is very important to my husband and daughters. (We had problems with the wireless in the place we stayed in Korcula right before.) All of my feedback is great except 1 thing - the noise from above when there are people in the apartment upstairs. We were lucky during the week we stayed because the upstairs unit was quiet until Thursday night. Thursday night a group of young adults celebrating a birthday settled in. I know it was a birthday because the noise carried so much into our apartment. Sometimes I felt like I was upstairs in the middle of the party apartment with them, and they partied until 2am Friday night. Luckily the kitchen and main bathroom were the worst spots for the noise, the noise in the bedrooms was not as bad. I'm mentioning the noise-from-people-above factor because it could be a real issue for some people. It bothered my husband, but since it was only for the last few days, he focused on the positive fact that we were so lucky to have had Sun-Wed nights so peaceful. We thought the amount of stairs (95 from the street level, about the same from the street to old town) was just right. You want to be high enough for the breezes and views, but not so high that you hesitate to go down to old town. I'm fit and active so I had no problem going up and down the stairs 3-4 times a day even if it was just for a quick run for some breakfast pastries. (I did have one run to the grocery store where I realized halfway home that I had purchased the maximum weight I could carry. I had two full bags with lots of liquids, such as milk and juice.) The outside space of this apartment is spacious and delightful. There is always at least one spot with some shade. The pool is fantastic. I hope to return for another stay one day (hopefully when the upstairs is quiet.). Trip Advisor 2013

“Hi Isabelle and Viktor, we got home safe and sound. Our vacation was very nice and we liked your MirO and your town a lot! Have a nice fall!” Virpi and Tero, September 2013

“We have had a lovely stay in this Secrets III apartment and will be sorry to leave tomorrow! Thank you for your help”. Jan & Ernie Sznapka, September 2013

“We had a wonderful week seeing your beautiful city and the weather on the Friday was the icing on the cake for us as we were able to spend a day on the rocks sunbathing which was perfect.I have already told many of my friends about Dubrovnik, Lapad and of course Citrus Apartment apartment and will continue to recommend it to others. Should we ever come back there we would have no hesitation in staying there again. It was lovely to meet you, Viktor and of course Charlotte - tell her we send her a special hello - and thank you so much for making our week so special.” Irene, Rob & Denise September 2013

“ We had such a lovely time in Dubrovnik thank you. La Dolce Vita apartment was just right - very spacious, clean and central so we could pop back at any time and didn't have to worry about making sure we had everything with us for the whole day. The transfer was very convenient and great to be met and taken to the property once in Dubrovnik. The car was very comfortable. Generally a very enjoyable holiday much enhanced by your very helpful booking process, provision of information and fantastic apartment. Unfortunately we were unable to go on the planned boat trip on Monday due to the stormy weather but we went up the cable car instead, took a short boat trip around Lokrum island and spent the rest of the afternoon at Buza 2. Thank you again. I hope to return to Dubrovnik again very soon! Liz, September 2013

“ My wife and two young children spent 10 days here, and it was excellent. In particular, the help from Viktor and Isabelle at Butterfly was invaluable. It's nice being able to genuinely trust the management company. They have other properties too. L'Heure Bleue is a bit up the hill, but it's not bad. You can use the elevator at the hotel just a bit downhill, and the stairs aren't too bad either. It would have been nice to be closer to the beach, but it was much quieter up top. All in all, I think we made the right choice.There is a construction underway down the hill a bit, and while it was a little unattractive unless you're actually looking down you won't notice it. For the most part, you're looking right at the bay. The photo I attached is the actual view. I spent a lot of time asleep on the sofa with the windows open. If you do visit in the height of summer, there are three aC units. My one complaint (Butterfly will probably get this fixed) is the kitchen was missing some of the basics. It would be good if the owner would make an Ikea run and stock it up a bit more. Steak knives, a griddle, vegetable peeler, etc. Not a big deal, but we did occasionally have to get creative. Trip Advisor, September 2013

"Green nest is small yet comfortable. Very clean. The location was great, literally minutes from the shop, bakery, beach and harbour – amazing views of the rooftops too! Dolores arranged to meet us up at the Pile gate as that is where we got off on the bus, this was really helpful as we were not sure where we had to go. She was very friendly and told us all about Dubrovnik which was great and recommended where to go. Ease of booking and check in process very good. The number of steps up to the apartment did not matter to us at all but probably would to an older couple so this needs to be brought out more in the description. The information and leaflets left in the apartment were great to read through. Our correspondence with Isabelle prior to our visit was very good, very professional and informative. Our meeting with Dolores was also very informative . Overall, we had an amazing holiday. We loved staying in the Old Town for the week. We would definitely recommend Butterfly services to other people and would come back. Deborah, September 2013

“Very new apartment & excellent location in the Old town. La Dolce Vita apartment was a very new decorated apartment inside the old town. We found it very comfortable. Viktor had giving us very good advice on activity. The location is also excellent- central but quiet. We can walk to the apartment from both Pile & Ploce gate ard 5 min(but I personally prefer to walk from pile gate as I had more luggage). The market is just right beside the market & you can find fresh fruit in the morning. There are also some nice restaurants in that square. The only downside is that the only air-cond in the living room. I guess this is not a big problem as I found that this is very common in most of the apartment in Croatia. I definitely will return to this apartment next time when I am in Dubrovnik. Trip Advisor, September 2013

“Dear Viktor and Isabelle. Thank you for your hospitality. We very much enjoyed our stay at MirO apartments and would certainly come back again if staying in Dubrovnik. Thank you and your excellent staff for all their help. Gary and Heather Richards, September 2013

“ We loved to stay at Vue Mer 61; the owners were very accurate, punctual and very kind, good and fast check-in, they had good tips, their English was pretty good, location 10 minutes walk from old town so that was great, in the neighbourhood were 2 beautiful beaches, the vue from the apartment was great and the apartment good decorated, modern and comfortable and all was very clean. The kitchen had a dishwasher and in the bathroom also a washing-machine, iron-stuff so everything was there to make our stay comfortable. We parked our car at the street in front of the house but is was also possible to park on their property. So, just the way as told and shown on the website.Booking was easy and fast and we were very well informed. So, thanks for all !” Ans Geraerts, July 2013

 

“Efficient service and beautiful apartment. Everything worked like clockwork. The location was attractive and convenient only slightly let down by some unfinished building work opposite the apartment which was out of Butterfly Services control. The only things we lacked in the apartment were a toaster and a second sun lounger. I would certainly recommend both La Note Bleue apartment and Butterfly Services and hope to use them again in the future. Trip Advisor, September 2013

“Thank you for all your help Isabelle. We really appreciate it and can't wait for our holiday in Croatia”

“Hi Viktor and Isabelle. We had a great time, and the Dolce Vita and Secrets IV apartments were perfect. And Viktor we really appreciate your help and advice. Thanks again, and if we know anyone else headed to Dubrovnik, we'll definitely send them your way!” Jeff and Jill, September 2013

“The apartment Heure Bleue was just as we expected it from the pictures and very clean. Everything was working like Wifi, air conditioner, washing machines etc. What we appreciated the most was the excellent service by the owner Viktor. Even if we arrived before the official check-in time he recieved us very friendly and gave us the most important informations an material for our stay. We even locked us out once, but he was there with a locksmith no more than 20 min after the incident. We would strongly recommend Butterfly Sevices to everyone”. Trip Advisor, August 2013

" Amazing apartment with stunning views! The 02 apartment was as good, if not better, than the pictures on the website. Extremely clean with everything we needed. A few minutes walk from the old town and Banje beach and also close to the beautiful Sveti Jakov beach if you want something more peaceful and secluded. Sandra, the owner was very helpful and met us when we arrived, answering any questions we had. Trip Advisor, August 2013

“Dear Viktor, Your Apartments look very good! And especially I'd like to thank you for the photos attached to your first e-mail! I've read before the comments on construction work nearby! So your way of service from the very first e-mail shows the high-level of treatment and concern about your customers! It's appreciated a lot! As I mentioned during the phone call I'm traveling with my parents and their preferences - to be closer to everything: old town and beaches at the same time :)It's quite challenging for me to find but Based on my first great experience I have with your company I would consider your apartment as a first priority!Thank you once again!” Lena, September 2013 “We’ve had very enjoyable experience indeed (including Tuscany & Burgundy later) and really look forward to returning to Dubrovnik – or any other European trip – very soon already! The Green nest apartment – Location, facilities, comfort, décor & cleanliness – excellent, could not be better for our needs. The Information we received before & during stay was excellent, could not be better. Help & support (care?) obtained from Anet and her husband in the shop below was just great – please make sure they are sent our best regards! The same applies to your invaluable service and help. We are sadly back to our day-to-day responsibilities already. But will bear in mind your help & assistance and should we look for another successful stay there will not hesitate to get back to you at all.” Tad & Iza, August 2013

"Clean and well-equipped apartment. We stayed at Acqua apartment in August and it was very nice. It seemed as though it had been updated very recently as all the equipment there was very up to date and appeared new. There was very little in the way of ornaments etc. but that was probably a good thing as we tend to be a very clumsy family! Maybe a little bit in the way of furniture in the bedrooms might have been a god idea as there wasn't really anywhere to put all my bits and pieces but apart from that it was very nice. The apartment was on the top of a cliff (like just about everything in Dubrovnik) which might have been a problem, but we were allowed to use the lift of the hotel next door so it was fine. Altogether an enjoyable experience. Trip Advisor, August 2013

“A gem, with a cool pool and uplifting views. The Bougainvilliers apartment was a great place. I think there are very few places in Dubrovnik with a pool so this was a real find, very relaxing and away from the hub - hub of the Old town so peaceful at night. The outside area is more spacious than the advert shows, with lots of seating and loungers. Do be aware of all the steps though, they can be a bit of a challenge in the heat when carrying groceries and wine. I think the local supermarkets are missing a trick. I would gladly have paid for home deliveries to save all the time and daily effort of the shop and climb. If you are fit and able though I would recommend this place” Tripadvisor, August 2013.

“We have just returned from a weeks stay in Dubrovnik in Secrets 1 apartment. We booked our holiday in Dubrovnik because we were getting married there & our wedding planner put us in touch with Isabelle and Viktor as we told her we wanted to look at some apartments. We wanted somewhere central as we had guests staying all over Dubrovnik so by being in the old town we could be in the middle of everyone. Instantly Isabelle was agreat help, she suggested the different apartments available that suited our needs and their website was easy to use to look at the different apartments. Booking was easy with just one form and deposit easily paid with Isabelle ringing you when it was convienient for you. After that any questions we had were easily answered by a quick email. On arrival at the airport we had the taxi transfer which was quick, easy and comfortable & with our mound of wedding stuff much appreciated. At the old town we were met by Viktor who took us to the apartment involving a walk through the old town which can only be described as amazing. The apartment was about 50m away from The Rectors Palace where we were getting married and smack in the middle of the old town. We then got to the apartment which can only be described as beautiful!!! It was much much bigger than all the pictures let on & just generally more amazing then we could wish for. We couldn't believe how lucky we were to be staying then. After that Viktor went through a map with us, gave us suggestions of restaurants, and organsied a return transfer for the end of the week. He also reassured us he was on the phone if we needed him, to which we were then left to our own devices. Everyone who came to visit us in secrets fell in love with it, it was for 2 people but is extremly spacious & we now have some of the most beautiful wedding photos thanks to it generally being a beautiful space. Can't wait to get back there!!!!!”Trip advisor, August 2013

"I could write about how unexpectedly big the apartment is or how well it's decked out. I could talk about how friendly and helpful Viktor, the guy we dealt with, is. I could tell you that Dubrovnik is a stunning city that you have to visit... but you probably knew that. The real highlight, however, is that the location of the apartment (Secret Apartment I) is as good as I could ever imagine holidaying in. It's not just a highlight; it's phenomenal. Located 10m across a narrow street from St. Blaise Church, we were staying in the very heart of Dubrovnik. This permitted us to recover from unusually high temperatures (and, correspondingly, an unusually tempestuous storm) whenever it suited. As self-catering accommodation we were able to come and go as we please, stocking up on fresh produce from the open-air morning market around the corner and essentials from a nearby supermarket. Most importantly, we didn't lose any time travelling to and from one of the many hotels outside of the city walls. For one thing, this allowed us to spring out of bed and walk around the perimeter first thing in the morning... well before the hoards came in, so very much recommended! Whilst a hotel experience undoubtedly holds its own attractions, we couldn't imagine going back anywhere else when we do inevitably return to Dubrovnik. Trip advisor review, August 2013

"Isabelle, un grand merci pour votre contribution : vous avez été très aidante par rapport à un certain nombre de points d’organisation. Nous avons d’abord passé trois jours à Chioggia, un petit village de pêcheurs ravissant près de Venise, un beau début de séjour, puis ferry jusqu’à Rovinj. Le choix de Rovinj s’est avéré excellent car nous avons trouvé ce que nous aimons : ville typique, centre historique, taille super, bons petits restaurants, possibilités de baignade faciles. La maison Arabesque est très bien placée, au calme, très agréable, à recommander. Seuls points d’amélioration mais ils sont minimes et juste pour votre info : la literie (le matelas est un peu « mou » pour nous et le lit grince). Nous avons déjà des projets pour l’an prochain, entre Croatie et Grèce si possible (mais nous n’avons pas encore regardé les itinéraires possibles). A tres bientôt ? Catherine, August 2013

„Thank you again for a lovely stay in Croatia - we were very impressed with what we saw and with the friendliness of the people. All prior booking arrangements through Isabelle and Viktor (Butterfly) went to plan. The Jardin Bleu II apartment is spacious, clean and modern apartment with good air conditioning system. Location overlooking bay (lovely sunset skies) is beautiful, quiet accessible. It is Very near to the water for swimming and snorkelling off rocks . Water crystal clear , close to restaurants, and there is a small well stocked supermarket not far away . Accessible for bus link into Dubrovnik. Thanks again for all your assistance and advice. We would hope to return again in the future“. Gavin, Margaret, Emily & Eilidh, August 2013

“My wife and I spent a wonderful week in the o2 the apartment was truly amazing with a lovely modern kitchen and the balcony with the best view of the old town was our favourite place to be. We would recommend this apartment to anyone and would love to return someday. Also we would recommend booking transport through Viktor and Isabelle from the airport this was an excellent facility”, Trip advisor, August 2013

„Dear Isabelle & Viktor, We have just got back from our trip, flew in from Ljubljana yesterday. We love Croatia (and Croatians)! We also fell in love with Slovenia. We had a great time with you at Miro, thank you for making us so welcome. Many thanks and maybe we will come back and see you one day. The problem is there are so many places in the world we have yet to visit!“ Paul & Tracey, August 2013

Secret I exceeded our expectations, so it would definitely be our first choice when returning to Dubrovnik. I couldn't believe how spacious it was, and I loved the high ceilings. The location next to St Blaise Church in Old Town was absolutely perfect. It was very hot during our stay, so it was nice to be able to quickly pop back in the apartment due to its central location. My favourite thing about the apartment was that a man would play acoustic guitar at the restaurant below from 6pm. It was so relaxing that I would fall asleep. Viktor was also great - he carried our suitcases up the stairs (there were no elevators) and all of his recommendations for places to eat were excellent!” Trip Advisor, August 2013

“We loved Dubrovnik and staying at Divine 1 apartment made it a fantastic experience. We were there for three nights and greatly enjoyed our stay. The apartment was charming, well decorated, had everything we needed, and the terrace was beautiful. Viktor was very helpful, gave us great restaurant recommendations. The location of the apartment is ideal and quiet. We loved the terrace the best and have nothing negative to say about Divine 1”. Trip Advisor, August 2013

“We have had a fantastic stay and will definitely recommend MirO Studio Apartments to all our friends”. Darren and Emma, August 2013

“I would highly recommend Miro Studio Apartments to others visiting Dubrovnik. The apartments were clean, well provisioned and very conveniently located, just around the corner from the Pile Gates. The staff were helpful and friendly and provided good ideas for day trips out of Dubrovnik. Thanks to you and your team for making our trip to Dubrovnik so pleasant.” Mimmi, August 2013

“Thank you so much for the wonderful apartment Divine III. We had a great time in Dubrovnik. Thanks for your recommendations as well!!” Sarah and Michael, August 2013

“The Nid Amour apartment has fully met our expectations. Stylish, new and kept in good order. Access is easy and location is best. It offers beautiful views to old town and is a very short stroll to reach Pile gate. It was quite at night so you can rest. Bed is comfortable and bathroom offers all you need. Also kitchenette's equipment is complete (not that you would cook with all the excellent restaurants in Dubrovnik). Service provided by Viktor and Isabelle could not have been better. We booked transfer from airport and it worked perfectly. They are very friendly and always quick to answer any enquiries that may arise during your stay. You get all infos you would need to make your stay in Dubrovnik as good as it gets. Can't really go wrong with this choice”. Trip advisor, August 2013

“We had a fantastic stay in Dubrovnik and we loved the apartment Turquoise Bay! The view is amazing!!! The apartment was spacious and very well equipped! The terrace was perfect. The Old Town and the sea are very close. We appreciated the service and assistance we got from you and the owner– thank you!I have already recommended your apartments. Marie, August 2013

“Loved the modern feel to MirO apartment and it was exceptionally clean. Victor & Isabella were very welcoming and helpful. Quiet street and by a quaint little coastline area. Would recommend to a friend without hesitation! Trip Advisor, August 2013

« La petite résidence, entourée de verdure, est située dans un cadre enchanteur. L'appartement Heure Bleue, très propre, est lumineux et confortable. A 10 min de marche, il est très facile de prendre un des nombreux bus pour Dubrovnik (surtout laissez la voiture à l'appartement!)Viktor et Isabelle aiment leur région et leurs conseils (visites, restaurants) nous ont permis de passer une semaine formidable!Que de beaux souvenirs”. Eric et Isabelle, July 2013

“ Dear Isabelle, It was nice speaking to you earlier today. Thanks very much for your support, prompt action and fruitful confirmation – most helpful and definitely appreciated on our end! We will definitely pop in to say hello during our stay – your inside knowledge will certainly make our stay even more pleasant, I’m sure! We really look forward to starting our trip already”. Tad, July 2013

“We stayed in the Secret apartments for 1 week and had rented two of the apartments. Seriously, we have no complaints at all about these. Before travelling our correspondence with Isabella and Viktor was excellent with very quick responses. On arrival we had arranged a taxi transfer which was friendly, prompt and very efficient and our meet with Viktor to reach our apartment was also very easy and smooth. We were provided with maps and plenty of tips on where to eat and visit, all of which were good. On to the accommodation itself, the two apartments that we rented were beautiful. Very well laid out and huge in size. The location was absolutely spot on. Right next to St Blaise Cathedral and if you looked sideways, onto the Stradun. Surprisingly noise was not an issue in the evening, even although it remained busy until about one o'clock. The apartments themselves are within an old renovated building entered by a stairway among the local restaurants. The stairway itself could be described as a little rickety but that added to the charm”. Trip advisor review, July 2013

“Dear Isabelle., We had a wonderful stay in Dubrovnik and Au Jardin Bleu II. It was a very nice apartment, nicely kept and well cleaned. We had everything we needed. The view is stunning! The communication worked out very good with both you and Boris. Boris and his help, arranged a transfer for us to the airport which was very helpful. A special thanks to you for helping us finding a doctor quickly. My husband got an appointment right away and was very happy for the help”.Christiin, July 2013

“We had an amazing time thanks, Victor was very very helpful and the booklet in the room we used twice for restaurants which were good too. Lovely room and I will do a top review for you both”. Caroline, August 2013

“We had a good holiday in Dubrovnik. The Turquoise Bay apartment was very comfortable, spotlessly clean and nicely decorated. The apartment is extremely well equipped and everything was of good quality. The view of the bay was lovely and the terrace a good size. Something that might affect other people renting (not us really) was the walk back from the beach, which is quite a strenuous climb in the heat. Transfers were fine, the pick up vehicle and driver from Dubrovnik airport being particularly good. Booking the apartment was trouble free and we appreciated the advice and information you provided both before the holiday and when we were there. The highlight of our holiday was definitely the trips we made by ferry to the islands. We absolutely loved them, particularly Sipan. The sea was the best for swimming that we have found in Europe and even the ferry journeys themselves were a delight. I was pleased you mentioned the ferry as an alternative to the organised tours, suited us better and what a great service. We would definitely not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone we know considering Dubrovnik as a destination, I can't fault the service you provided. Amanda, July 2013

"Dear Isabelle, Thank you very much for your email and for the great organization of everything. The Au temps retrouve apartment is beautiful and I am sure that we will spend a wonderful week here! Thank you very much” Muriel, August 2013

“We totally enjoyed our stay at the coconut apartment. The location was perfect, apartment fantastic and the owners really nice and friendly. The only negative would be that the electricity stopped working a few times one day when cooking dinner but we soon solved the problem. Will definitely be going back. Thanks!” Velma, July 2013

“Hi Isabelle and Viktor, I've posted a review on trip advisor last weekend (Titled - Fantastic Apartment in an ideal location). We had an amazing time thank you and especially loved our view from the apartment. Everything was perfect and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending you to family and friends. Thanks! Nicola and Martin, July 2013

“Dear Viktor, We loved our stay in Dubrovnik and particularly at the Secrets 111 apartment, which was superb in every way. We want to thank you so much for looking after us so beautifully. You were superb in every way. Very helpful, informative and professional. We will definitely recommend these apartments to friends wishing to visit Dubrovnik.” Charles and Sharlae , July 2013

“This flat was great. It provided everything you could possibly need to make your stay in old town Dubrovnik even more memorable. I should also note that I have never been swayed enough to write a trip advisor review before, but Divine I apartment is well worth it!” Trip Advisor review 2013

"We loved our stay at Secret Apartment as it was very centrally situated yet not noisy. We had a classic guitarist playing at a restaurant beneath us which we loved. The room is incredibly spacious with a further floor above you where the kitchen and TV area are situated. The apartment was beautifully appointed and comfortable. We would definitely recommend this accommodation to any visitor to Dubrovnik. Very charming and professional service also. Trip Advisor, July 2013

“Travelled to Dubrovnik at the last leg of a 3-week vacation covering all of Croatia and Montenegro. With husband (46 yrs) and two kids (ages 4 and 6 years). Apt Secret IV was wonderful and very clean. Lovely 2 bdrm each with own ensuite. Perfect location in heart of Old City (which is a must - it is absolutely magical). Not loud at all. Laundry but no dryer. Viktor was helpful and responsive. Highly recommend. Note that Old City Dub is car-free and surrounding it is very hard to park. To stay in Old City, you'll need to schlep your luggage into/out of the Old City from the outside walls, which was a bit of a challenge leaving at 5am with an overtired 4 year old but it was so worth it!” Sheree, July 2013

“Stayed at the MirO apartments a couple of weeks ago and it was fantastic. The location is perfect, away from the hustle and bustle of the old town but just literally around the corner. Dubrovnik is beautiful, loved every minute of our holiday. The apartment used the space available in a really clever way which made it feel very spacious. The view from our apartment was incredible (No. 6), definitely worth climbing the stairs for. Isabelle and Viktor were really helpful both before and during our trip. They arranged our transfer from the airport which was really smooth. The guide they provided detailing restaurants and things to do was superb. Enjoyed visiting a number of the bars and restaurants suggested. In particular the d'vino wine bar was great and we had a lovely anniversary meal at Little Bistro Gil's which was expensive but well worth the money. The Dolce Vita ice cream shop was also well worth a visit and good value for money.Would highly recommend this place to anyone.” Trip advisor review, July 2013

“The Nid Amour apartment was flawless. Everything was spotless and new. The neighborhood could not be nicer, a few steps down and you are swimming with children and grandparents from the neighborhood. Very easy access, close to Pile gate, bus stop and restaurants. Not apt for tall people. I kept hitting my head on the roof. Viktor, the property manager was as friendly and efficient as they come. He went out of the way to help and his recommendations for things to do and places to eat were the best”. Trip Advisor, July 2013

“ Dear Isabelle and Viktor, Just a quick note to thank you for your hospitality and service during our recent holiday. We really enjoyed ourselves during the two weeks at Citrus bay apartment. I have sent a link to your website to a client of mine who is looking at Croatia for the first time and had no hesitation in recommending you. We are looking at going back to Croatia next Summer and will be in touch! Neil, July 2013

"Hi Viktor & Isabelle, The apartment Au Jardin Bleu IV was beautiful, and we were very happy with almost everything about it. I was happy to meet Boris when I arrived at the apartment, and I was really impressed with the property. The location is great, with easy access to the Lapad promenade, restaurants, and stores. The apartment is nicely furnished, with everything we needed during our vacation. It was very clean, and we really enjoyed the privacy of the outdoor area. The only complaint I would have is about the wi-fi, as it was often difficult to connect with my iPhone and laptop computer. It seemed like it only worked in one location, near the living room sofa bed. But that is a small complaint and it did not affect our enjoyment of the vacation. We were very pleased with the airport transfers you arranged for us, and the price was reasonable. The cars were comfortable and the two drivers were very friendly and helpful to us, and the first driver recommended a great restaurant (Orsan). Your service and communication were amazing! We were very happy that you were involved in this rental because you answered many questions and helped us a lot. You worked quickly with Boris to help us with documents for my wife's visa application and were very understanding of everything. If I knew anyone going to Dubrovnik on vacation, I would definitely recommend they contact you for assistance. Your operation is very high quality. Thank you!! William, July 2013

“ We had a lovely stay at the 02 apartment and a wonderful trip altogether. We will certainly recommend you to our friends, and we thank you very much for all your assistance with the transfer and car hire arrangements. That all worked very well. As for the apartment: the location was perfect, which we sort of knew in advance. One in our group is a boat fanatic, so the view of the cruise ships and yachts anchored right below us every day was amazing. The walk up was a bit strenuous, especially the last bit inside the building getting up to the top floor after a long day of sightseeing, especially on the hot days, so might not be perfect for all. The apartment was great! When the coffee maker broke the first day you were very efficient in replacing it and telling us not to worry about it. I just hope you are not running to fix things all the time! It was all good and clean and new and as described on the website. So much better than most of what we looked at online! Thanks again for all your very friendly and efficient help and hope you are having a good summer. Cheryl and Frank, June 2013

“The 02 apartment was as described, and more. It has a privileged location, a few minutes walk to the Walled city of Dubrovnik. On the way you will find two (2) four star hotels, the Museum of of Modern art, Banje Beach, VIP 9 for a SIM card) , Konzum ( a well stocked grocery store) two (2) news stands with international publications, and a travel agency that is very honest and changes your currency into the local Kunas (accepted by all)at very favorable rates. The unit has a wide balcony that faces the island of Lokrum, which creates a sheltered bay that is animated by private mega-yatchs ( some with helicopters), frigates, a host of ferry boats that ply the islads and adjoining cities and , kayaks (there is a school nearby and they animate the panorama. The apartment was cooled by the " mistral" winds that wafted in making air conditioning unnecesary. It isprovided with very new and modern equipment and furnishings; we lacked nothing. The owner was very helpful; on the first day,showing the neighborhood, even driving us to a supermarket that delivered . ( It is not easy to cart heavy bottles of water, juices, milk, etc. on the first day. ) She kept in contact and was readily available to assist when questioned. She made arrangements to greet us at the airport, and to pick us up on our departure.The apartment was provided with maps and helpfull hints on what to do and where to go. It was a memorable experience that I highly recommend” Jaime, July 2013

“ We stayed as a group of 4 adults in Miro Studio apartment’s extension in the Old town # Dolce Vita. The location was extremely good, right in the middle of the old town. Viktor, the owner, was very hospitable and gave many good recommendations on where to visit, given the number of days we had in Dubrovnik. He also gave some other suggestions for our next destinations in Croatia. The apartment was very spacious for 4 adults with 2 bathrooms. It was tastefully furnished and modern. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and felt really at home in this apartment. I will definitely visit these apartments again”. Trip Advisor, July 2013

“Hi Isabelle & Victor, It was lovely to meet you Victor today, the Secret IV apartment is fantastic thank you!” Ruth,

July 2013

“We have just spent a fabulous 7 days at Acqua apartment. It is just as it looks on the photos. An cool oasis of calm from the hustle and bustle of Dubrovnik which is a short bus journey away. The view from the balcony is spectacular. The beaches are quite pebbly so bring water shoes if you are troubled by this but the water is so clear and blue. Some of the restaurants on the strip in Lapad are not brilliant but the two nearer the water were great and the Italian and Eden on the same road as the apartment were definitely worth a visit. The management agency Butterfly services were fantastic. I dealt with Isabelle and she couldn't have been more helpful. I would definitely use them again”. Trip Advisor 2013

“We chose Divine III after falling in love with the pictures in the ad, and we were not disappointed when we arrived. The property managers kindly let us check in early so we could explore the city that was so well explained to us. We held on tightly to the map that the property manager had personally marked with the special places to visit after describing them to us. We did not want to lose all this important information!The beds were comfy, air conditioning appreciated and kitchen sufficient to cater for breakfast and lunch as we chose to eat out for dinner.Loved the view out of the main windows, it was exactly the feel we were after. Location was great, maybe a little dangerous as it was close to our favourite jewellery shop! The property managers were very accommodating with our initial booking enquiries and once confirming it was an easy and efficient transaction and at all times we felt very welcome.The property was quiet except for the comforting sound of people dining in the restaurants below. The smell of pizza below teased us though! Wifi cut out a bit but that can happen in many places these days and was not a priority to us, unless it was to update Facebook to tell everyone what a great break we were having and how happy we were in our little haven in the old town” Bev, July 2013

"Dear Isabelle, Home from our European adventure and it was a huge success. We loved La Maison d'Ete. Everything about it was perfect for us. My husband originally faught me on the location thinking we should be in the Old Town but I convinced him otherwise and we were all so happy with that decision. As a family of 5 (2 parents and 3 "children" aged 17, 20, & 22) booking rooms was sometimes challenging. La Maison d'Ete was perfect for us; lots of room, well equipped, clean, amazing view, fantastic location and a very friendly accommodating hostess in Ivana. My only concern prior to leaving was the beach bar as you had kindly warned us it could be noisy but the fabulous windows block out any noise and it didn't matter as we were often the ones up late drinking kamikazes on the beach. We loved it and would return again given the opportunity and would certainly recommend to anyone travelling to the beautiful city of Dubrovnik. Butterfly Services did a great job of suggesting this accommodation for us and providing us with all the information we needed to make everything go so smoothly. Thank you Isabelle! Cathy, July 2013

“ We(couple in early 70s) recently completed a 4 night stay at MirO studio apartments and were extremely pleased with the facility. It is new and "IKEA " modern, nicely furnished and located in an ideal location to explore the Old Town of Dubrovnik. It is very close ( 1-2 blocks?) to the Pile Gate, the major bus stop and taxi stand. Also there are not many steps to navigate with your luggage. Free wireless, air conditioning, refrigerator, microwave, modern bath. Can't get much better than that!” Trip advisor, July 2013

"We had a lovely 3 night stay at Miro apartment. Location is excellent, apartment fabulously clean and spaious and the service is so friendly and helpful. Could not have asked for anything more during our lovely stay in dubrovonik, except to stay longer :)". Bernie, July 2013

“Located right in the centre of the old town, it is the perfect location for whatever you want to do. It is the top floor so you can't hear anything from the streets/shops/restaurants at night! The Divine III apartment is modern, spacious and has everything you require! Viktor (butterfly apartments) made us feel very welcome and walked around the old town with us pointing out the best places to eat and drink, and then also told us the best things to do whilst in Dubrovnik. After we had checked out he looked after our bags and also gave us all the information about how to get to the airport. This made our stay very easy and pleasant!” Trip Advisor, July 2013

“Viktor and Isabelle, We arrived home from Prague late last night. Our entire vacation was incredible. We loved our stay at MirO. Marie and I will also be returning one day and will plan on staying there (hopefully in room 7 again). Thanks for your hospitality” Carl, June 2013

Reve Bleu Apartment- Ideal apartment in a super setting. Wonderfull apartment. Best view in Lapad.Thanks to Isabelle and Viktor for organising everything including transfers to and from airport. Thanks to ana for meeting us in apartment on arrival and giving us plenty info on restaurants and shops.We had a great holiday. Dubrovnik is a beautiful place”. Trip Advisor, June 2013

“Dear Isabelle and Viktor. Where do i start.First of all we have to thank you for a wonderful stay at Miro studios. We arrived at 11 am and were immediately checked into our apartment most unexpected but very welcome in the 30 degree heat. The apartment was excellent in every way from location to amenities even down to the fact that when I asked to borrow an electricity adapter which i had left at home although you were unable to supply one at the time someone went out and bought one and left it in the room for our return. Excellent customer service .Your welcome information re things to see and do and eat were fab Gils was our favourite we even visited twice. Many thanks for the beautiful bottle of wine given to my husband for his birthday what a most unexpected gift and very thoughtful. Last of all we would like to give a special mention to Maria she was a charming and helpful girl and was always interested in what you had done that day or where you were going she is a real asset to your business. Many thanks once again off to put an excellent report on trip advisor which is where we found you. Best wishes hope to return”. Patricia and Derek, June 2013

“Everything was perfect with the transfer Sunday morning, got to the airport successfully. Thank you for the transfer. We had a great trip in Croatia, thank you for the use of the Heure Bleue apartment. I know there is nothing you could have done about the construction, so no worries. Thanks!” Kevin, June 2013

“Very welcoming arrival, clean and spacious apartment for 2 – Divine I-, very roomy for one. In the middle of the old town so plenty restaurants, I didn't cook at all though there is a fully fitted small kitchen . I was not bothered by noise at all, the busy Pizza place downstairs closed down at about 11 or so, and in any case the bedroom is at the back of the building away from ant street noise. ( No cars in the old town.)Comfortable bed, I hope to be back for another visit”. Trip Advisor review June 2013

“Hi Isabelle and Viktor,Thank you both for a lovely holiday. You were/are the most helpful couple. It was lovely to meet you and your family. Croatia is a really beautiful country and we would be keen to explore Split next time, so if you have any tips we'd be very grateful. We would certainly recommend you and your services to anyone.” Helen, Shane and the girls

“Dear Isabelle and Viktor, my parents were very happy in your apartment. It is a beautiful apartment in the middle of the old town. Also the garden was worthwhile. They had more in the apartment that they expected. For your information, the ventilation from the restaurant "mea culpa" stopped at 11.00pm. But that was not a problem for my parents. Of course we will recommend you to other people. We wish you all the best and hope to see you soon again in Dubrovnik.” Caroline, June 2013

“Amazing apartment, 15 min walk to the old town. The 02 apartment was spotlessly cleaned, large and modern. The views from the balcony are amazing. We loved our stay here.” Marc, June 2013

“The Bougainvillers apartment was just as described in the advertisement. All the necessary equipment was provided. Not luxurious, but was great value for money. There was plenty of storage room for clothes etc. and the wi fi was very reliable. The views over Dubrovnik from the patio were stunning. The steps to the apartment were a little challenging but it helped to work off all the lovely food that was available in the area. The villa was very central only five minutes walk to the old city, supermarket and cable car. Viktor was there to help us with the luggage when we arrived and to show us around the apartment. He also helped us again when we left, very punctual and reliable, as were the transfers they arranged to and from the airport. All in all, we didn't have anything to complain about and enjoyed a relaxing holiday. A big thank you to both Viktor and Isabelle for their helpfulness and kindness” Trip Avisor, May-June 2013

“Thank you very much for this helpful information! We are enjoying our stay quite a lot and will definitely highly recommend the MirO studio apartment on Travelocity”. Sara, June 2013

“Dear Isabelle, I am writing to thank you so very much for all of your help with organising our transfers Split/Dubrovnik and Duborvnik/ Podgorica while we were visiting Croatia. The drivers were excellent and very informative and the van was really comfortable. It was just wonderful visiting your beautiful country and we are certainly planning a return visit as soon as we can”. Karen, June 2013

"We had a great holiday in Le Reve BLeu. Thanks for everything. We will tell all our friends about apartment!".Ted, June 2013

“The location was simply fantastic and the Jardin Bleu apartment was really nice and worked well for our party. The level of comfort corresponded to my expectations and everything was clean and spotless. The terrace(s) were perfect, especially for the baby. One nice addition would have been some kind of lounge chairs on the little terrace. Maybe the lighting needs to be improved too– the hard light on the ceiling did not provide a very cosy atmosphere. The transfer was perfect as the super friendly driver made us feel truly welcome to Croatia and Dubrovnik. Both drives were on time and the rides were very comfortable. I was very happy with the way you handled us. Every email was extremely helpful and polite and made me feel appreciated and welcome. The property corresponded to your description. More restaurant tips, especially in the neighbourhood could have been helpful, – though we had several excellent dinners thanks to your recommendations. Atlantic was our absolute favorite. :)All in all our holiday was a true success. Croatia and Dubrovnik definitely showed us their best sides. The nature and the sea are simply breathtaking. Just coming out of the house to the sea shore path was a memorable experience per se. I also fell in love with Croatian people: They were really friendly and helpful – and talked excellent English. Thank you! Teriina, May 2013

“This really is in the heart of the old town, surrounded by shops and restaurants. The noise from the street is great during the day but can't be heard at all during the evening with the bedroom door closed. The facilities in the Divine I apartment were spot on and we would love to stay here again”. Adam, June 2013

"Just a few lines to say that we absolutely loved our time in Dubrovnik and at Heure Bleue. Special thanks to Victor for all the help & guidance during our stay.Victor said he would pass on the details of some property in Istria which he recommended. We are looking at Istria for next year. Once again, thanks for everything Bob & Judith, May-June 2013

"We had a lovely stay at Le Jardin Bleu II. Boris was very nice and helpful. It was a lovely apartment and was as described. The views were fantastic! It was very clean, a few facilities could have been added but I left a note for Boris about additions that I thought would enhance the property. It is very new so perhaps there are things which haven't been thought of. The transfer was good, Boris organised a taxi back to the airport for us. All was good. Your services and communication have been great.I did not feel the need to contact you when we were there as it was easy to find out information in Dubrovnik and Boris was very helpful.Thank you very much! Dubrovnik is beautiful! Rachel, May 2013

“We really enjoyed our stay in Dubrovnik and the Plein Coeur II apartment. There was a little confusion when trying to meet someone to get access to the apartment. We finally did meet with Mia, and she was very helpful. The location and general layout of the apartment were great. I think our only complaint would be the bed itself. You could let the owner know that it's time for a new mattress as we would both wake up with sore backs. Still all in all we enjoyed ourselves”. Thanks, Kelton

"Perfect location, amazing staff/owner and stunning views from our window. Couldn't ask for much more. Thanks Viktor! Jason, May 2013

"We had an amazing time in Dubrovnik and loved the 02 apartment - was probably the best place we've ever stayed and the view was amazing! Thank you! Polly, May 2013

"Thanks for a lovely place to stay – MirO Studio -and lots of helpful advice. Rosalyn, May 2013

“These guys are seriously good. Isabelle and Viktor run a very smooth and efficient operation. They arranged a taxi to pick us up from the airport and after a slight delay we were able to get in to the apartment, well before the scheduled time. The divine 1 apartment is perfect for a city break having everything you could need, and very clean and comfortable. Right in the heart of the old town it is a perfect situation. On sunny days the terrace garden is great for a glass or two of delicious Croatian wine. Loved Dubrovnik. Thanks Viktor for good restaurant and activity recommendations. Trip Advisor May 2013

“ We had a wonderful stay in Dubrovnik in spite of the weather that wasn’t at its’ best  However it was a lot to see and do and we got a few warm and sunny days so we had a boat tour and one day at the beach. The location of Green nest Apartment was perfect but you need to be in good condition with that stairs of course, we had no problems but some can have. The thing we was missing was a coffee brewer that is one thing that always should be in a apartment for renting. Otherwise it was ok. No luxury but comfortable and also here of course with many narrow stairs inside. ;-). We had a nice and warm welcome from Dolores and nice chats with the couple in the shop downstairs. Over all we had a great vacation and the old town is delightful and with many great things to see. Take care and live well! Greetings/Carina and Tapio, May 2013

“Very spacious apartment (Secrets II), in the best location in Dubrovnik. We stayed very comfortable. The best thing was the service, the person who received us helped in everything we needed” Trip Advisor, May 2013

“ Our apartment Secret IV was in the absolutely best location - steps from the St. Blaise church & convenient to everything without climbing lots of steps. We had 2 bedrooms and 2 baths! plus kitchen. Great! Groceries were near by and everything was within an easy walk. Susan, May 2013

“ A charming, confortable & spacious apartment in the heart of old city and near the medieval port. We really appreciated a warm welcome and good advice given by the Secret apartments' Management to explore Dubrovnik. We enjoyed our stay at Secret II, walking through stone paved streets, visiting beautiful monuments, admiring the magnificent views of adriatic Sea, tasting culinary delights at the morning market, cafés and restaurants.” Kuri- Chan, May 2013

"Dear Isabelle and Viktor! Thanks very much for information! The attention, care and kindness of you already made a difference in our trip. Thank you. We make contact soon! Moyses and Mari

“Perfect location to explore Dubrovnik. Great facilities and wonderful, helpful staff. Would highly recommend MirO studio to anyone staying in Dubrovnik. If you're lucky enough to get a room with a view the landscape in view is amazing” TripAdvisor, May 2013

“We had stay at O2 apartment for 3 nights in May 2013. We are enjoying to stay at balcony for breakfast and drink wine. The view has excellent to see the old town and sea. We would like to thanks owner - Sandra to waiting us and help us to pick up the luggage. When we stepped into the apartment, we have non-stop to say "WOW" perfect scene and high standard design and decor. We have highly recommend to stay at O2. We have only 10 mins walking distance to old town, cable car and supermarket”. Ivy, May 2013

“We had a lovely time in Dubrovnik and our stay at The Divine apartment through Butterfly Services added to our wonderful experience”. Karen and Owen, May 2013

“Quaint, atmospheric apartments in a great location. Well equipped, comfortable and spacious. We booked our transfers to and from the airport with Isabelle - it was punctual and reliable both ways. We were met by Victor on arrival at the Ploce gate (cars not allowed through) and he kindly took one of our suitcases, and the same on the return journey - he remained with us until our transport arrived. As another booking wasn't due until the evening on our day of departure, Viktor kindly let us leave our luggage in the apartment as our flight was in the evening. Within the walls really is beautiful, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the apartments. However there are a few observations I would like to make. It is noisy even with the windows closed - there is a restaurant and guitar player beneath the apartments, the church bells/clock announce the hour and half hour 24 hours a day. I don't mean to sound miserable about this, it's part of the general 'old world' charm, but it may be useful for some people to know. There are lots of steps to the top 2 Secret Apartments making it difficult for those less mobile and some of the handrail is broken with some parts missing. My elderly mother really did struggle and felt a little unsafe where the handrail was broken. I realise these buidings are very old so there are, of course, going to be some drawbacks - but these can be overlooked by the pleasure you take in their originality and authenticity. We would have liked a blind that covered the window in the bathroom even though we weren't overlooked. All in all, we had a lovely break and enjoyed our time in the apartments”. Pamela, May 2013

“Here are our first feelings just coming back from the croatian paradise!Concerning Seville flat, I recommend it to everyone who’d like to stay in the old town but in a quiet part of it. It’s very easy to find the flat even if you come by your own (we’ve received detailed map and information to reach the flat), just near the Pile gate. You can easily use buses and boats to reach many wonderful islands or villages in the surroundings of Dubrovnik.We had a good surprise on friday night : there was a concert of traditionnal music from Croatia just under the windows of the flat in an open air theater. It was a very good moment because the concert was very nice and we appreciate music. But maybe it’s good to know that it may be some “noisy” evenings if the schedule of the open air theater is full!The flat was very well fitted, with a large bed, and nice furnitures, full of light, very clean. It’s very pleasant to be under the roof, and very quiet because you don’t hear the neighboors a all. You could just add a bedside lamp!The organization to rent the flat was perfect, good first contact on phone and very clear organization to pay the deposit.We’ve been welcomed by Bozo at the flat and Isabelle and him were reachable easily by phone. Many thanks for this accomodation, we just wish to come back soon! Perrine, May 2013

“I just wanted to write a review about our trip to Dubrovnik, Croatia in May this year. My partner and I booked the Divine apartment through Butterfly Services (Dubrovnik) and were very pleased with the service. Both Isabelle and Viktor were extremely friendly and helpful. The directions to the accommodation were spot on, Viktor met us upon arrival and gave us some very helpful tips and directions of where we should visit during our stay. The location of The Divine apartment was perfect, within the old town it was an ideal base for exploring (the old town). The kitchen was stocked with all the utensils you could need. The Divine I apartment is directly above a restaurant, you could hear their air-conditioning unit and some noise from below up until around 11pm but this did not really affect us. With the windows closed you could hardly hear people outside and you could not hear them from the bedroom which is at the back of the apartment. We are looking to return in September and will be booking our accommodation through Butterfly Services and recommending them to friends and family. Trip Advisor review, May 2013

"Thank you for the beautiful stay at Divine I apartment. I really appreciate all of your help over the past week. All the best with the coming tourist season!! Benjamin, May 2013

“My husband and I stayed in Secret 1. It was faultless in every respect. The apartment was light and airy and overlooked the Stradun and the square. The restaurant below had a classical guitarist playing every evening and there was also a classical quartet playing during the course of the week. It was heavenly lying in bed listening to the sound from the street which thankfully didnt include traffic as there are no vehicles allowed in the old town. For those of you who prefer quiet, dont worry, the double glazing blocks out the noise if you wish. The apartment had excellent facilities and was up one flight of stairs. Not too bad for a couple of middleaged people. We were met by Viktor at Ploce Gate when we arrived and he showed us the apartment and provided very useful advise about places to visit. Dubrovnik itself is a haven, so clean and quiet and not yet frequented by lots of stag and hen parties (though I did see a couple of groups who were very well behaved). Places to eat were numerous and varied. Be methodical when looking through the old town, I like local art work and those shops are hidden up the side streets off the Stradun which mainly caters for the cruise ships who descend every day.There was anything about Croatia that we didnt love. I would recommend a visit for those people who like a civilised, quiet holiday with as much or as little culture as you would wish to sample. Its not a party place (a bonus for me) but it is restful and a tranquil oasis to recharge and soak up the lovely weather, food and people” Carol, May 2013

“Thanks for having us and for all your tips Victor. We enjoyed all the restaurants you suggested.We loved Dubrovnik and we’ve been so lucky, considering the weather forecast from last week and what’s been generally happening with the weather in Europe this year” Jurek & Agnieszka, April 2013

"We are very satisfied with our stay at Divine I apartment. The apartment, transfer, information and service in general are all very good. So we would very much like to come back to Dubrovnik and Divine apartments som time, and we vill also recommend it to our friends. Vennlig, April 2013

“Thanks to you both for everything - the booking, checking in, checking out, and the tourist information were all excellent. The only things I'd improve are so trivial they are barely worth mentioning: a slightly better selection of knives in the apartment (ones without a serrated edge) would make cooking easier. Also, as this was the first time we've stayed in an apartment rather than a hotel, a list of what is provided (towels, bed linen), and what isn't (toiletries, toilet paper) could be beneficial. But like I say, these are really trivial points - all in all we had an excellent stay, and will definitely recommend the Divine III and Butterfly Services to our friends. All the best. Tim, May 2013

“Thank you so much for a lovely stay in Dubrovnik, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and loved the apartment Divine III! The location is fantastic and it suited our needs perfectly. We are already discussing coming back for a long weekend later on in the summer!Lara was great and helped us out with everything we needed to know.Thanks once againKind Amy, May 2013

“We thoroughly enjoyed staying in Secret I apartment which was extremely comfortable and very well situated. Lynne, May 2013

“We absolutely loved your little apartments MirO and the location was perfect, particularly No. 6 with the fabulous view - thanks! I will certainly pass on your details to anyone else I know visiting Dubrovnik in the future, including our eldest son who may well be passing through. With many thanks and best wishes “ Deb & Alec, April 2013

Divine studio was a wonderful and clean apartment right in the middle of Old Town Dubrovnik. Perfect location and reasonably priced! Even better, Viktor and Isabelle gave us great restaurant and activity recommendations and even helped us out when my husband's luggage was lost. Wonderful place!” Trip Advisor May 2013

“ The 02 apartment was perfection! From the moment that Sandra met us at the top of the stairs and helped us with our luggage to the apartment, we were impressed. She was very friendly and informative. Upon learning that my husband's I-phone had gone out before we arrived, she was kind enough to arrange for a driver to take us to the airport when it was time for us to leave. The apartment has breathtaking views and is filled with amenities. It has a wonderful modern kitchen in which we cooked several meals-complete with refrigerator with icemaker, dishwasher, coffee pot, oven, and stove. There is a dining area in the kitchen which then leads to the living area with sofa,television, and stereo system. A large balcony area overlooking the adriatic Sea to the island of Lokrum extends from the living area. This is where we spent much of our time-relaxing and enjoying the beautiful view. The bathroom has a washing machine and modern powerful shower. The bed was very comfortable to sleep on. In addition, there is a beautiful garden room complete with dining area and fireplace which we enjoyed one rainy morning. Then when you exit the garden room, there is an actual garden complete with table with umbrella and chairs! What more could anyone need? There is a grocery store within a 5 to 10 minute walk and it is about a 15 minute walk into Dubrovnik, However, to stay here, a person needs to be in fairly good physical condition, as there are quite a few stairs to navigate. This was not a problem for us, but it is something to be aware of. For us there could not have been a more perfect place to be. It was definitely the highlight of our entire trip and we hope to be there again very soon! Carol, April 2013

“We just wanted to let you know that we have loved staying here! Thank you for all of your help and recommendations! Rachel and Matt, April 2013

“Beautiful large one bedroom apartment -Secret I- elegantly and charmingly decorated, located right in the middle of the old town with a great restaurant at its steps! Utter perfection from the washing machine to the space and airiness, light and comfort. Utter blissful 4 days for us. Vicktor was a great pleasure to deal with and had terrific tips for eating and viewing the best Dubrovnik had on offer. He was friendly, kind, responsive and helpful. Could not have been better! Phil, April 2013

"The location is superb, the Secrets apartments are very comfortable and clean ..." Neslihan, January 2013

"02 Apartment was beautiful,beautiful, beautiful we were very satisfied!!!" Violetta, January 2013

“Hello Isabelle and Victor. This message is just to add a personal thank you from my 2 friends and I. The travel advice from the airport was great. Lara met us and showed us round the property and also passed on local advice which was very useful. We ate at the Taj Mahal on our last night. We reallly enjoyed visiting your beautiful city and will recommend it and in particular your Secrets apartments to others”. Sue, November 2012

“We spent the second week of our holiday in the Secret Apartments and it was a great way to spend the week. We visited Dubrovnik to get married and this was a perfect base for us to do all the trips we wanted to do. The main bedroom overlooked the beautiful church which was an excellent view and location...until 7am on Sunday morning and the bells begin ringing!!! Lounge area was perfect for relaxing as well. Viktor was a great host as well and couldn't be more accommodating”. Bryan, 2012

“Hi Isabelle and Viktor. I wanted to thank the both of you for your assistance and help after my fall in the old city and for helping Marc with some instruction. Many thanks again for a great holiday in Dubrovnik”. David Alexander, November 2012

"We had a really enjoyable one-week stay in Cavtat at Le Jardin des Citronniers from 4-11 October. Butterfly Services gave a first class service prior to our holiday, answering all questions promptly and efficiently, so thank you for that.The owner was waiting for us on arrival at Dubrovnik airport and also offered to give us a lift back on our return, which was very much appreciated. The property was stunning, ideally situated right in the centre but was amazingly peaceful - just what we wanted. The furnishings were exactly as pictured and the garden was a delight; we were amused to learn that we were sharing it with a family of six tortoises who enjoyed fresh tomatoes! Everything was spotlessly clean and there were some items in the kitchen - washing-up liquid, cooking oil and dried herbs, which was helpful. There was an abundance of lovely soft towels and even shower robes; limitless piping hot water was always available. On a negative note, we did have problems with the wi-fi connection (which wasn't working on our arrival) and the owner didn't appear until four days later to rectify it. All in all, however, we still had a wonderful time and would gladly return to the same location and the same rental property.” Diane, October 2012

“Hi there Viktor and Isabelle. We are enjoying our time here in Dubrovnik and your apartments MirO are beautiful thank you. Your hospitality has been wonderful. I will write a report on singing your praises! Many thanks, Andrew. October 2012

“My stay at Miro Studio was fantastic. The location, amenities, facilities, all of it was just great. The fact I showed up late and Viktor was there to meet me within just a few minutes was very impressive, and VERY appreciated. I would recommend Miro to anyone I know that planned to visit Dubrovnik, without hesitation.” Marc, October 2012

« Notre séjour s'est bien passé, l'appartement – Le Reve Bleu » est spacieux, agréable et bien équipé. Nous n'avons pas été trop gênés par les travaux de la résidence d'en face, dans la mesure où nous n'étions pas là dans la journée. Je pense que pour la saison 2013, tout sera rentré dans l'ordre, l'immeuble ne devrait pas gêner la vue puisqu'il ne dépassera pas le niveau de la rue, en hauteur.Le quartier est très agréable et bien situé lorsqu'on a une voiture, sans doute moins dans le cas contraire, mais nous n'avons pas eu à prendre le bus. La propriétaire, Ana, nous a très bien accueillis.J'aimerais pouvoir revenir car nous n'avons pas pu visiter tout ce que nous voulions, principalement à cause du manque de ferries à cette saison (c'est déjà les horaires d'hiver), mais c'est un dilemme difficile car l'été il y a beaucoup trop de monde. Mais l'essentiel est que nous avons eu du beau temps pour visiter la côte dalmate et les bouches de Kotor. C’est sans conteste un des voyages les plus agréables que nous ayons fait ces dernières années et cela donne envie de revenir .... mais c'est toujours le temps qui manque … » Jean-Louis, Octobre 2012

“The 02 apartment is fantastic. An easy walk to Old Town (10 minutes, at the most), market, bakery, ATM and the cable car. The balcony was our favourite spot for breakfast overlooking the sea, and for a glass of wine in the evenings, watching the lights of Old Town. It is very well equipped, with kitchen utensils, toaster, kettle, etc. There is a washer machine that was especially great to us, travelling for a while with some more days to go. The owners are very helpful with information about the area, and keep in touch as often as you would like. We took advantage of the transportation to and from the airport, and our drivers were very pleasant and super efficient, always on time. The apt itself is beautiful decorated, spotless, very clean and modern. We had a few days of rain, but the setting was so beautiful that we didn't really care. We are looking forward to another opportunity to visit Dubrovnik, and wouldn't think twice about booking O2 again. Gabriela, October 2012

« Bonjour Isabelle, and Viktor. Mon retour Paris s'est bien passé, sous la grisaille ... Ce petit mot pour vous remercier de votre accueil souriant, chaleureux et compétent malgré le manque d'air et de lumière du rez de chausse ! J'ai passe un agréable petit séjour a Dubrovnik et ne manquerai pas de conseiller votre appart-hotel MirO tel si des amis me demandent conseil. Bonne continuation.” Francoise, October 2012

“Dear Isabelle, dear Viktor,I can only tell the best about our stay in Dubrovnik. The Thalassa II apartment was wonderful, with enough space, it is well equipped and located in a nice ambience, in a fine distance to the crowded old town, but not too far away. All the informations we received - on the website or on the phone - were helpful and applicable. Your collegue, who welcomed us, was very friendly and had all the informations we needed.We did not use your transfer offers because of the car, we’ve rented.So I can truly confirm, that your services were excellent and I would like to thank you very much for it.We would also like to recommend your apartments to friends” .Carsten Axel, October 2012

“Thanks for all your help. Have already submitted a good review - well deserved we had a lovely time at Secrets IV! Nick and Deb, October 2012

“Viktor, Thank you again for sharing your house with us, it was perfect. Thank you again and congratulations on a gorgeous property -02-! “Gabi, October 2012

"Just a quick thank you to both you and Viktor. We had a very enjoyable stay and the Secrets I apartment was really lovely.Thank you for your advice and attention. We will recommend you to our friends! “ Sharon and Tim, October 2012

“After consulting some 30 odd apts and houses in Dubrovnik, I was relieved to find the Secret IV Apt, conveniently and centrally located in the flat part of the old town and a stone's throw from all the major monuments - just idea for our family vacation with a child and grandparents. The apt is elegant, completely renovated, clean and tastefully decorated with careful attention paid to dove-tailed detail. (there is brilliant use of the limited space!) We would have liked to have more kitchen amenities but actually enjoyed more the many casual restaurants within walking distance. We were not able to work the television or computer and would have appreciated instruction manuals in English or French(!) Our driver was punctual, spoke excellent English and gave good insight into Croatia for us first time visitors. The video of the apt was invaluable and accurately illustrated the space and setting. Viktor and Isabelle were very helpful in providing addresses and advice, and aided us with our transfers." Millane, 2012

“We stayed at the O2 apartment for 11 nights. The location is great, just a 15 min walk away from the Old Town. Beautiful views and a lovely clean, well equipped space made our Croatian holiday almost perfect. Viktor was very helpful and gave lots of hints and tips on which restaurants to visit and the ones to avoid. The cost may have been a wee bit high but it was well worth it for the high spec of the apartment and professionalism of Isabella and Viktor.” Simone, September 2012

“Thank you very much for your e-mail. We have been in a deep depression ever since returning from the beautiful shores, sunny weather and warm seas of Dubrovnik to cold, rainy weather. Our trip was great and we greatly appreciated the personal advice of Viktor; this was very helpful and much appreciated. The apartment “la Note Bleue” was great and perfect for our needs. Joanna found the mattress on the bed too hard, but that is a matter of personal preference. The flat was very clean, bright and sunny; the decor was fine. It had everything we needed for a 5-day stay, including proximity to supermarkets. The view from balcony was great; the crane was unavoidable and didn't bother us too much. (We became quite good friends with the operator in his cab). Being able to use the lift in the Kompass Hotel was very important - we imagine that the walk back up would get annoying after the first day. It was nice being so close to the beach, bars, restaurants and the sea, as well as close to places where we could book tours etc.The transfers to and from the airport were perfect. The taxi drivers were friendly and helpful and were not upset by late flight arrivals.The description on the web-site was accurate. The booking procedure was fine. Isabelle was very responsive to questions we asked prior to booking and arriving. Viktor was a great tour guide advisor and we greatly appreciated his personal interest in our trip. We were made to feel welcome and valued.hat's about it. We will be sure to pass on your information to friends and relatives looking for holidays in the Dubrovnik area. Thank you again for a wonderful holiday”. Chris and Joanna, September 2012

“We are enjoying our stay at Divine 1 very much. Thank you for your valuable information in the file! Thank you!!!!!” Fung, October 2012

“Eric and I are sad to leave tomorrow evening- we've had such a wonderful time in Croatia, especially in Dubrovnik. Thanks so much!” Emily, October 2012

“Nóirín and I had a wonderful time in Dubrovnik, it was our wedding and we decided we would stay somewhere really nice and were not disappointed. Location is very good, 5 minute walk to the Ploce gate entering the old town, 5 minute walk to the nearest shop, 10 minutes to cable car.We arrived into Dubrovnik airport and were met along with 6 others from our party who had also booked through butterflyservices.hr. We were dropped outside on the upper road, where we met Viktor who showed us around the bright spacious apartment- 02- and immediately made us feel very welcome and at home. Our first impressions upon entering the apartment were, “Wow! this is nice!!"The views from the balcony were spectacular, overlooking the Island of Lokrum and the beautiful Old Town of Dubrovnik. There was a different yacht or ship anchored every day and it was fun to guess what would be there the next day, and there were some spectacular sights. The main living area was excellent, comfortable furniture, large TV, sound system wired all over the main living area was good too. The kitchen had everything we needed, large fridge, dishwasher etc. The wifi was most welcome as we needed it from time to time! Also the air con. was very good too throughout the apartment. The bedroom was comfortable with more than adequate wardrobe space. A special mention for the shower, which was the most fun shower ever!I don't know how to describe the room onto the quaint, small garden, but it was really beautiful, old style almost, a complete contrast to the rest of the apartment. A lot of Noirin's pre-wedding photos were taken in this room. All in all, when the time came for us to leave on the Sunday morning, we were feeling quite sad, but happy that we had got to stay in such a nice apartment.Isabelle was a pleasure to deal with via email, unfortunately we did not get to meet, and if we ever return to Dubrovnik (which we I am sure we will), we will be in touch!! Best wishes for the future” Brendan, September 2012

“My wife and I have only just returned from Dubrovnik where we stayed for one week at the 'La Note Blue' apartment in the Uvala Lapad bay. The apartment was exactly as described on the web site, exceptionally clean, decorated and furnished to an extremely high standard. It is very well equipped and the view from the terrace is truly spectacular. We found it unnecessary to hire a car as the public transport is really efficient and relatively cheap. It is only a short walk to the bus stop where the No. 6 takes you into Dubrovnik. There are some really good restaurants and bars nearby. Our favourite 'The More' restaurant is only a few hundred yards from the apartment. The food is great and it has a really great bar on the water front. The booking procedure and the transfer to and from the airport, which was arranged by Viktor, was smooth and without any hassle. We found Viktor most pleasant and helpful, he gave us some really good advice. We enjoyed our holiday so much that hope to return next year” Trip advisor review, September 2012

“ We loved the location and amenities of “La Maison de Lora”. The beds and couches were comfortable and the decor was very tasteful. The apartment was also clean. Suggestions for improvement would be to ask the bar downstairs to turn the music down (it was incredibly loud), to install a wall unit for the upstairs bedroom (leaving that window open for the a/c pipe also meant hot air and noise got in), and to look into why the stove was so difficult to turn on (it seemed that you had to press the "on" button at just the right angle for about 60 seconds).Isabelle was very helpful in arranging airport transfers. It was easy to make sure we were getting in the right car by having the make, model, color, and license plate information. This made it much less stressful to have a 5:30am taxi ride and to find a taxi with a carseat.The booking procedure was easy and it was comforting to have all of the confirmation documentation. We did have some issues with the arrival, however I believe it was a one-off event.I found Isabelle and Butterfly Services to be outstanding in general and wish they were able to help me in all of my destinations. My comment for improvement would be to have more transparency in the accommodation rating system by putting them on Tripadvisor or other sites that require user profiles. It's difficult to scroll through the comments to find reviews for a specific apartment and it's hard to trust the reviews that are not directly submitted by the guest. Only after working directly with Isabelle and Butterfly Services do I now understand the level of commitment they have to their service and accommodation quality levels. Vivian, September 2012

“My Husband and I stayed in the Secret I apartment during our stay, I chose it off the reviews that had been posted as I find it invaluable to read reviews when searching for anything. Secret I did not disappoint. Situated minutes from the gate entrance and practically round the corner at the end of the Stradum this apartment is perfectly placed within the old city. It is right next to St Blaise Church and not far from the clock tower however I cannot stress enough that the church bells or clock tower chimes are in no way annoying, they never disturbed us once. The apartment looks over the side street and there are restaurants directly below, in fact if you are staying in the Old City you are likely to be looking over the side streets with bars and restaurants, unless you are prepared to stay in the part of the old city where the apartments are at the top of very steep steps. Where Secret I is situated is perfect as all the restaurants bars around it shut after 11.30 and any musicians playing are finished after this time. Also the apartment has double glazed windows which shut out a lot of the noise and the air conditioning in the apartment is quiet and efficient which means you can have it on all night and not be disturbed, which is ideal in the heat!! The apartment itself is lovely and airy with a real feeling of space, perfect for a couple. Everywhere is clean and the bed most comfortable. The bathroom is modern my only niggle is the Shower head is placed wrongly at the side of the bath it does need to be at the end and the bracket sorted, but honestly is wasn't a problem we just had a bath everynight instead. There is plenty of instant hot water which is excellent. As for Dubrovnik what a wonderful city. Viktor met us at the city gates after organising a Taxi to pick us up from the airport this was wonderful especially as we had never been to Croatia before, Viktor was most helpful in advising us where to go and what to see and was at the end of a phone for any problems or simply to answer any questions. For anyone wanting to go to the beach I advise you take wet shoes with you for your feet as the beach is pebbly and going across to the island there were no sandy beaches just a wonderful rocky coastline where there are steps into the sea..........a must for anyone. Can't thank you Viktor and Isabelle enough for a wonderful apartment which made our holiday so special.................I would recommend Secret I to anyone staying in Dubrovnik". Trip advisor review, September 2012

“I enjoyed my stay at the Divine 111, and particularly liked the fact it was very quiet and peaceful there. The actual apartment is lovely and I really liked the exposed stonework. The shower and hot water all worked well, as did the air conditioner (which was good as the apartment could feel quite hot when I returned each day). Everything in the kitchen also worked well and there was everything I needed in terms of saucepans, crockery and utensils. The bed was also comfortable and everything was easy to keep clean. I felt I got a very good service from you, and I really liked the location of the apartment as it was very easy to look around Dubrovnik and get there from the Pile Gate. The airport transfer that you arranged for me at the start of my trip all went as it should have and I was met at the airport on time and driven quickly to Dubrovnik by the driver. Viktor met me in Dubrovnik as soon as I arrived and showed me the apartment and told me what I needed to know on my 1st night…all which helped me. I would recommend the Divine 111 to any of my friends or family to stay in.” Dominique, September/October 2012

“Thank you so much for making my son’s stay special. They raved about the MirO apartment and about what wonderful hosts you were.” Cheryl, September 2012

“Just wanted to say thank you for a lovely apartment- Secrets II-, and for all your help. Trust you are well. We hope to visit again sometime. Many Thanks”. Veronica, September 2012

“We miss Dubrovnik so much. We had the best trip of our lifes and will definately come back very soon. Thank you so so much for all your help both in the months leading up to our wedding and also whilst we were in Dubrovnik. All the accomodation we stayed in was excellent standard and I will highly recommend Butterfly Services to all our friends and family. When we come back we will book through you.” Tina, September 2012

“We had a lovely visit and all of us were enthralled by Villa Greco; the only thing I would recommend: the downstairs bedroom could use an air conditioning unit; it was terribly hot but we got by with the fan; a unit would be wonderful. Otherwise all was beautiful and can't say enough for your help and the people who manage the property. They were awesome and very interesting and kind. Thanks for your help and care” Brown, August 2012

“We are having a fantastic time in the o2 apartment and Dubrovnik and we will be very sad to be leaving tomorrow, thank u so much. We will certainly be back and I look forward to doing business with you. It really was a pleasure”. Noirin, September 2012

“ Arrived back home on schedule. Weather here pretty good, although we are missing our morning coffee on the balcony with that great view. We very much enjoyed our stay in your beautifull apartment “La Note Bleue”. Hope to see you again”. Bob & Judith, September 2012

“ Many thanks for helping us find some where to stay in Dubrovnik. Your advice regarding choosing the Swing apartment was perfect. If I could find a company like yours in every city it would be great. The location was perfect, just outside the walls it was in an ideal location and no more than 5 minutes walk from anywhere. The apartment was comfortable, clean and well equipped. The wifi was an added bonus and made life much easier. The description of the apartment on the website and the pictures were exactly as the described. The booking procedure was very simple with Isabelle calling me at a time of my choosing to get credit card details for the deposit. The directions to the apartment could have been a little bit more detailed but the owner was waiting at the apartment for us and came to meet us immediately once we got to a landmark close to the apartment. The information provided on where I eat and what to see and do was a nice added touch as it saved us wasting half a day wondering aimlessly around (although this one of the experiences of a holiday). The services of Butterfly Services were top notch. I will be using the company again when I return to Dubrovnik and will absolutely recommend Isabelle and Viktor to my friends and family of they ever visit Dubrovnik”. Mairin, September 2012

"Firstly, thank you for your text the other day regarding buses to the airport, my battery died so I could not respond, but everything went fine! We absolutely loved Green Nest apartment, and could not recommend it enough to family and friends. The location was perfect, so close to everything we needed and it was really clean and comfortable. It had everything you could need to cook also, but we did not really need this as we were out quite a bit. It is an apartment I would definitely return to. The owner was so pleasant and great to deal with also. We did not get a transfer as we were meeting friends on arrival and we just got the bus back to the airport, but all went smoothly! I really have only good things to say about Butterfly Services (as did all of the other members of our group). You made everything so simple, laid out every bit of information we would need so clearly, and were so helpful with every question we asked. Thank you for your help in organising a brilliant holiday - we will definitely be returning to Dubrovnik! “Ruth, September 2012

Athos studio was very good, nothing to complain about. Perfect locations with wifi as a good feature. The transfer was on time and comfortable. All iInformation we received (description on website, booking procedure was very good as well. We will contact you next time a trip to Dubrovnik is planned”. Petter, September 2012

“ We stayed here for one night and thoroughly enjoyed our host Viktor's enthusiasm and charm! He happily pointed out the best sights for us to see and places to eat in the short time we were there. We found the location ideal, close to the old city with a private cove just outside the apartment! Dubrovnik is a stunning city and when we return we will definitely be seeing Viktor again and staying at Miro Studio Apartments. Great value for money. Simple and stylish!!” Trip Advisor review, September 2012

"Dear Isabelle,Viktor,We had a fantastic time in Dubrovinik and the apartment "02"was delightful.We very much enjoyed our stay at "02. The view from the balcony was wonderful and the apartment itself had a "WOW" factor. There was areal homely atmosphere about this apartment, as a matter of fact everything about "02" apartment was excellent. In terms of stylishness and cleanliness it was second to none. Service first classand information re transport, shops, restaurants, tourist trips etc all at hand. Viktor a wonderful host and more than helpful, transport pick-up to and from airport to apartment excellent. Location central to OLD Town and in a nice residential area. All I can say is, if anyone reads this report, and they are looking for a nice apartment in DUBROVNIK............dont think twice!!!!!! Go ahead, treat yourselves, and book 02 apartment, you wont regret it(you certainly wont forget it) as this apartment is absolutely B E A UT I F U L !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Thank you both for a most memorable stay! Anne, August 2012

“ We had a very nice stay in the apartment "La Maison d'Ete" this summer! The apartment was very well equipped, clean and big! And the location is perfect, so close to the beach and the old town. This is something we surely will recommend to our relatives and friends! Perfect for a family! Marvelous to sit hours on terrace for lunch or coffee. And we also loved to take the boat out to the island Lokrum with our 3 daughters! Please send our best regards to the owner too. We are full of good memories of our week in Dubrovnik summer 2012! Thank you once again! The family of Stein VårliD

"Hi Isabelle, Firstly thanks for all your help in booking our guests into apartments for our wedding. We personally stayed in Barcelona and it was fabulous! Decor gorgeous and modern, shower was particularly nice! Transfer was great and we were so central , we would definitely be asking for this apartment again.Only critique would be to remind guests to switch on water on their arrival as we had no Hot water until we figured this out and from then on it was perfect. Secrets apartments were great too , location decor and amenities were great. The addition of a dishwasher and washing machine in the top 2 bed apt and power shower would perfect this apartment. Lovely spacious homely apartments , my family loved them and really enjoyed their stay in Secrets! Your service is fantastic and we will be booking with you on our next trip to Dubrovnik" Emma, August 2012

“Hi Isabelle and Victor.Thank you for all the help during our trip to dubrovnik.It was very nice.I think you guys are well set to go higher. we did appreciate your prompt service and replies”. Karthik & Agalya, August 2012

“Would recommend the Bougainvilliers apartment. Brilliant location, views and facilities. Steps up to apartment a bit daunting but you do get used to them very quickley. Don't let them put you off as it's well worth the climb. Everything in walking distance from the apartment”. Trip advisor, August 2012

" We stayed at Heure Bleue apartment for a week. This is a great apartment located close to the beach, shops and the bus stop.We went with our kids (9 & 3). The location is close to the Lapad beach and excellent local buses to go to the old town. Isabelle and Victor made the trip very comfortable.Isabelle was very very prompt with the email giving us all the information needed.The apartment was given to us due to a late cancellation and Isabelle also arranged an extra 2 days stay for our convenience.Our airport transfer was all prearranged (260 kunas), driver very friendly giving us a little guided tour on the way to the apartment.Victor received us at the apartment and gave more information and also came when we left for the airport, was very friendly and was prompt in changing the door handle to the bathroom which was loose.The only niggle we had was the building of a new apartment block just outside out apartment with a huge crane erected for this.This was a minor let down as it was not very noisy and did not spoil the view from the balcony a lot. The weather was very hot during the first few days and became milder towards the end of our stay.The nearby Kompass hotel lift was a great help for us to get to the beach and back. You could walk along the beach all the way around the Lapad peninsula we also went to the beach adjacent to the Valamar president hotel and this was good.They have a watersports centre at that hotel. watching the sunset from the apartment or the beachfront was amazing.Thanks to Isabelle and Victor for making the holiday very relaxing". Trip advisor, August 2012

"We are elderly people and had excellent help from Isabelle when choosing a location in Dubrovnik with as few as steps as possible for us to walk up and down when leaving and returning to our apartment. The Miro studio was exceptionally clean, very modern and situated in a beautiful location, we only had a two minute walk in to the old town. Thank you so much Isabelle for an excellent service, if we were to return to Dubrovnik again which we hope we will, we will definitely use your service again. We love Dubrovnik!!!!!" Joe and Doreen, August 2012

“Dear Isabelle & Viktor, I am writing to thank you for all your help with planning and also during our wonderful holiday in Dubrovnik. The “Heure Bleue”apartment was really nice and the view was stunning (despite the crane).We all loved Dubrovnik, Swimming in the sea off the diving platforms in Lapad, The Old Town, The City Walls, The Cable Car, War Museum, Lockrum Island, and eating out in Otto Taverna, Orsan Yachting Club, Amfora, Pizzeria Nemo Problem, Nishta, Skola & Sugar & Spice. Thanks to Viktor for all the recommendations. The Croatian people were very friendly and courteous. We were very surprised and interested to see how busy Lapad became on Staurday Night with Live Music and the many food stands. The taxi journey was excellent both to and from the airport and I would like to thank you again for the smooth service. We could not take our eyes off the beautiful views of the coast line and were very sad to be leaving.Susan, Glenn and Bailey, August 2012

"Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Dubrovnik, the icing on the cake was our stay at the Miro Apartments. So lovely to nip back to as it was a short walk away. All you would want with the kitchenette, very modern, very clean. We were fortunate to have a room with a view. Would highly recommend. All staff very helpful. Try to talk to them as early into the visit as they can give great tips. Would stay there again." Trip advisor review August 2012

“Isabelle & Viktor are very responsive and very accommodating. They can make arrangements for just about any need you have. The apartment I stayed in is lovely- Divine 1-: 1 bed / 1 bath with kitchen located in the heart of Old Town Dubrovnik - at street level, just one flight of steps up to the flat. Important because Old Town is terraced and some apartments are located several flights of steps above the Stradun (main drag) - think of the luggage your lugging. Not a problem here. The apartment is very quiet. Air conditioning was excellent. The backyard terrace was sweet (lots of plants, ancient stone walls) and good size to invite a few friends up for an evening bottle of wine when the summer heat dies down a bit.I was in Old Town for a week for a wedding at Sponza Palace. I was able to shop at the local market and eat in a little - the kitchen is perfectly serviceable, so saved some money and got a tiny bit of an idea what it would be like to live in Dubrovnik. Several of the wedding party stayed in the luxury hotels (which are very nice, but pricey) and visited my apartment. They wished they had taken an apartment, too. By american standards, the bathroom is small (shower, only) - but unless you intend to stay in the bathroom for long periods, it's perfectly fine. There is also a small (by american standards) washer (dryer is a clothes line on the terrace). There is a sweet, quiet little spot for morning coffee just around the corner from the apartment called "Sugar & Spice". Also, given its central location, lots of restaurants and pubs but like I said, this apartment is very, very quiet. I would absolutely return here.” Frank, August 2012

“Our visit was a great pleasure. I don't know where is the "judgment" section on your site but all I can say is that we appreciated a lot Secrets IV apartment including the happiness and the kindness of Viktor. We would have loved to come again on our way back but it doesn't seem possible :/We wish you the best.” Patrice, August 2012

« 02 »'appartement est magnifique avec une vue sur Dubrovnick et la mer à couper le souffle. Victor est très accueillant et parle français. Très bonne situation pour faire tout à pied et ne pas subir la foule de Dubrovnik. Nous avons beaucoup aimé et nous conseillons cette location » Dominique, July 2012

“Thank you for your help in organizing the apartment “ Nid d’Amour” for my parents! They loved their vacation and stay with you. Next time we go to Dubrovnik, we will stay there as well!” Ingrid, August 2012

“Chose Miro Apartments on the basis of other Trip Advisor ratings. They were all correct! So close to the action, but so quiet & secluded. Just outside the Pile Gate, & very convenient to everything, supermarts included, if you need them. With a kitchenette providing all the basic necessities, if you want to use them. Rooms are spacious, very clean & modern, all inside a 16th Century Building, with 7 apartments on 3 floors.Even though it was 38 degrees outside, the air con was easily able to cope, so the room was as cool as you would like it to be.If you want any type of view, rooms 6 (this was my room), or 4 are the ones to choose. But keep in mind that you will have to climb 3 flights of stairs to get to room 6. I actually asked for this room & the view was certainly worth it! There will be someone to help with your luggage if that is required.Spend some time at nearby Lokrum island if you want to swim in a really nice area. Victor, the manager, suggested going there, & is full of all sorts of good suggestions. I should have spent much more time there. As well as swimming, there is a cafe with music, so a whole day is easily spent here. Really nice! Another little haven! I would DEFINITELY recommend &stay here again. Ideal really” Trip advisor, August 2012

“The Divine I apartment was lovely, and the service was great as well. The location is perfect for walks around the Old Town. The patio was lovely to look at, but honestly, we haven't used it once; it was too hot for that. When the temperature hits 110F, you probably won't want to be outdoors. I truly appreciated how well the kitchen was supplied; it had all the essentials and more, even cooking oils and spices. We traveled with a child and I cooked a lot, so it was great to have everything handy. The local supermarket is less than a two-minute walk and a morning bazar is not to be missed to fresh fruits and seafood (uncooked). The beach was a 10-minute walk (as expected); actually, there were multiple choices but only one was child-friendly. Overall, we already miss Dubrovnik and would stay in the apartment again” Trip Advisor review, July 2012

„We booked to stay at the Secret Apartment III after seeing the beautiful photos online and reading great reviews - our expectations were high and the apartment did not disappoint. It is situated at the top of an ancient building which is right in the heart of Dubrovnik Old Town. The location is perfect - situated just off the main street and surrounded by restaurants, shops and the most iconic buildings in the old town such as the Cathedral. We could not have been in a better location for making the most of Dubrovnik - with our front door being just seconds away from the hustle and bustle of the main street, the beautiful harbour, the markets and all the tourist hot spots. Once inside the apartment you have peace and quiet apart from the atmospheric sounds like the church bells and the sound of street performers playing guitar in the evenings. There was certainly no problem with noise and we both slept very peacefully every night. The apartment is spacious and tastefully decorated and furnished. It was extremely comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay (and probably more). The air-con was fantastic and worked brilliantly throughout the apartment. Viktor was very helpful and ensured our transfers went smoothly which really made all the difference. We'd love to return to the Secret Apartments and would certainly recommend this to other travellers. Joanna and Beau, August 2012

"Adorable apartment, in a tranquil setting."I absolutely adored La Note Bleue and would recommend it to anyone. The interior, was modern & chic, yet functional and cosy. The views hypnotic. Butterfly Services were extremely helpful, punctual, efficient and friendly. I would 100% re-book through them again. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here.” Amy July- August 2012

„Our apartment Secrets II was ideally located in the heart of the Old Town to experience the atmosphere of Dubrovnik. we found the owner to be warm and friendly and ready with many top tips on where to go to experience the area away from the usual tourist traps. cannot recommend highly enough, THE perfect place to stay!! Trip advisor review, August 2012

Acqua-- High quality apartment, in good state of decor and repair. Very clean. Martina , the owner, was very accommodating with meet and greet duties as our plane was late in arriving and leaving. Cleaner didn't have own key and had to be let in, but was flexible with times. Large screen TV and WiFi a great bonus- particularly as the Olympics were on. Position of apartment a bit of a challenge, only a stones throw from the beach, but 186 steps up hillside, a sweaty journey in high summer. The beach very crowded most of the time, pebbly and rocky. The water and swimming fantastic!Lots to do and see around about, special mention to adriatic Kayak Tours for Peddle and Paddle day trip- low to medium grade kayaking and cycling, with high grade lunch (not included- but hey, we're on holiday!). Also special mention to Isabelle from Butterfly services, who organised the booking process and was very helpful with advising good restaurants in the area, she has good taste! Chris, July- August 2012 *** Note that there is a shorter way to avoid the stairs and make the walk to the beach and Uvala Lapad easier***

“Hi Isabelle, Once again a massive thank you for all of your help and efforts. Without hesitation i will be highly recommending you and as for myself, i will be contacting you as soon as i plan a holiday to Dubrovnik.” Alex, August 2012

“Had a great stay in the apartment Bougainvilliers and would highly recommend it to our friends. Again so many thanks” Jackie, August 2012

“Good evening Victor, we just want to say a huge 'thank you' for all you did to make our time in Dubrovnik so amazing! All your top tips were spot on, we enjoyed exploring your locality and found everyone to be very friendly. Many thanks for our stay with you, maybe one day we will be lucky enough to come back, but shall certainly recommend Secret Apartments to any friends who go to Dubrovnik!” Camilla, July-August 2012

"Wir sind gerade von drei wunderschönen tagen in Dubrovnik heimgekehrt. Wir hatten das Appartement the Secret IV.Es liegt gleich ums Eck von der Orlando Säule und dem Uhrturm.Mitten im Geschehen. Alles ist zu fuß gut erreichbar. Das Appartement war sehr schön ausgestattet, mit zwei Schlafzimmern. Gleich am Hauseingang hat man eine große Auswahl an Restaurants. Der Besitzer Viktor von butterflyservices.hr hatte uns einen Abholservice vom Flughafen organisiert. Alles hat perfekt funktioniert. er gab uns auch sehr aufschlussreiche Tipps über die Sehenswürdigkeiten und auch Restaurantempfehlungen. Alles in allem eine gelungener Aufenthalt.Wir würden wieder bei Viktor buchen“ Trip advisor review, 2012

“Everything was perfect. The location was superb, the house “Le Jardin des Citronniers” was very well maintained and very clean, it was a nice touch to have the grounds cleaned a few times a week. The owners were very welcoming and helpful in getting our family settled and parking was well looked after. Perfect little village, lots to do and see nearby, lovely walking trails, good restaurants would absolutely recommend it for a family of 4. I found your booking and reservation services very helpful and one of the main reasons we chose this house of others. Thank you again!” Janet, July 2012

“We came in Summer 2011 and had a great family holiday. We liked it so much we came back again in Summer 2012. It was just as good the second time. Thanks to Viktor and Isabelle for keeping the apartment so neat and comfortable and welcoming us so warmly. We do not hesitate to recommend very highly Bougainvilliers apartment” Brendan, July 2012

„The Secrets III apartment is perfect. I stayed here with my boyfriend for a week in early July. It's very spacious, nicely decorated, nice large bed, super clean, and it's in a great location. It's right across the street from St. Blaise Church, right in the middle of everything. It's less than a 5 minute walk to the Old Port, as well as Pile Gate. Wi Fi connection was great, and the air conditioning was a huge relief in the hot July heat. Isabelle and Viktor are super helpful and nice. Booking was very easy, and they were very responsive to my questions. They gave great local recommendations and helped us book some day trips while in Dubrovnik. I'd definitely recommend this apartment and Butterfly Services. I had a fantastic time, and my experience with Butterfly Services has been great“. July 2012

"Hi Isabelle and Viktor, the apartment “Un Nid D’Amour” was very good, we enjoyed it very much. Thank you.” Michael, July 2012

“We thought the house “Le Jardin des Citronniers” was fantastic, in location, views and facilities. The house and gardens are beautifully appointed and very secure. The owners could not have been more helpful and they picked us up from the airport twice and dropped us back twice as we were travelling separately. So helpful and thoughtful. The information we had was perfect – the only thing that would help is a better description of the actual topography of the area as it is quite special, ie in that there are two peninsulas and that you can swim off the rocks and there are a variety of pebbly beach areas around the peninsulas. General information on the area was very helpful.We had a wonderful holiday and would return to Cavtat and to Croatia. It is a very beautiful and special place and compares to the Greek Islands! We have already let people know about our wonderful experience there and recommended your services. Many thanks Helen, June 2012

“Dear Isabelle & Viktor, We want to thank you for everything for our visit in Dubrovnik. We have fallen in love with Croatia and it will not be the last time we travel there. We really enjoyed our stay at “Heure Bleue” in Lapad. By far, the best thing about the apartment are the amazing views from the balcony. We enjoyed many glasses of wine on that balcony, just reading a book. It is beautiful. The views were even better than we expected. The location of the apartment is excellent. 10 minute walk from the bus stop. Getting into Dubrovnik is easy. 5 minutes to the beach and private coves along the bay. The walk along the peninsula (past Hotel Kompas) is beautiful. There are lots of private spots for swimming and relaxing. This is where we did our swimming and "beach time" in Lapad. It was quiet and there were no children around, so that was nice. The apartment itself is modern looking and spacious. Fully stocked kitchen and appliances. Furniture, bed, and linens were extremely comfortable. Air conditioning and wifi internet always worked. A perfect place for a couple traveling or even a couple with one child or three people. Lots of stairs to and from bus stop, Lapad, or beach...but that is like everywhere in Dubrovnik. The apartment is lovely, but there were some things that were damaged from previous renters, or not cleaned properly. The services provided by Isabelle and Viktor were excellent and could not have been better. Booking and payment was simple. They provided us with lots of additional information about day trips outside of Dubrovnik, restaurants, and sites. We followed a lot of their travel advice and it really enhanced our trip. They were always available, if we happen to need anything. They were very helpful and professional. They organized our airport transfer and it was timely and professional as well” Elena and Japp, July 2012

“From booking to picking up the keys it was all very easy, the apartment “La Note Bleue” was very clean and user friendly. The distance to the beach was a pleasant walk away, there quite a few steps though. Lots of bars and restaurants and the old town was close by too and really worth a visit, we would definatly go back for another visit. There was some building work going on opposite us during our visit which made for a lot of noise and dust but I m sure the next time we go that will be finished. Also the lobby was needing a good sweep out, but i think it was a public holiday for a few days so maybe the cleaner was off?” Trip advisor review, June 2012

“Dear Victor and Isabelle, I would like to thank you for everything. The “Heure Bleue”apartment was great! It was clean and cozy. The location was awesome. Even the construction process in front of our balcony did not spoil anything:). I would definitely recommend this apartment to my friends :). Thank you!” Katerina, June 2012

“We had a fantastic holiday in Croatia and loved staying at La Maison d Ete! The apartment was quiet, well equipped and perfectly situated to the beach and the old city. We loved sitting on the balcony, relaxing and enjoying the scenery. We loved the country and plan to return for more sailing and touring around. Thank you so much for all your help before our trip and for your suggestions about accommodation in Split. Your recommendations and travel advice made our trip so much better! We will definitely contact you before our next trip to Dubrovnik and Croatia”. Rosemary and Mike, May 2012

“We had a lovely stay at “Le Reve Bleu”. Apart for 2 mornings mentioned it was a lovely quiet area, away from the centre and bus stop but within walking distance and amazing views. Great having washing machine and dishwasher also. The only thing we would say is it would be great if apartment was cleaned once during our stay. Loved the outside space! Especially the back, had lovely breakfast each morning there. Transfers were perfect, helpful and on time. Thanks again! Adrian, July 2012

“The MirO Studio Apartments is a very wonderful place that we have stayed 6 nights in Dubrovnik with my wife. The Apartment has excellent location, is very near to Old Town (Pile Gate), you can be in Old Town with only 20 steps. It is near to Bus Station, markets, restaurants etc. but the street very quiet. Room is very clean and well decorated. We find in room what we needed all.(refrigator, oven, macrowawe, cooker, kettle, all kitchenware, tv, dvd player, wi-fi, clean towels, comfortable bed - it was like a luxury suit) Victor is superman :) how can we thank him enough, we loved him. He is very friendly, gentle, funny and he made everything for our holiday must be better. And his recommandations was the best. If he did not give to the tips, our holiday was not good like this. We are very happy about to meet with him. We find a real friend in Dubrovnik. And we want to thank to Isabelle for recommandations about before coming to Dubrovnik. We would stay there again, and we will advise the MirO Apartments and Victor to all our friends which will go to the Dubrovnik. Thank you everything, it was a excellent holiday for us by your hospitality” Cetin, July 2012

“We rented this sparkling, updated apartment -02- on the coast above Dubrovnik for 3 nights in July. The most noteworthy feature is the views of the water, island and old town. Truly remarkable! The apartment itself was also excellent in terms of stylishness and cleanliness. All the appliances worked -- there was good aC in the main room and 2 out of 3 sleeping areas. (The kids' room -- with bunk beds-- was pretty hot without aC. A fan would help.) There are public beaches less than 10 minutes (walking) in either direction where you can rent chairs and umbrellas. Check in was easy. We arrived early, but Viktor, the agent, met us at the apartment and let us leave our bags there while it was cleaned. He got us oriented to the apartment and area, and shared some good restaurant and activity recommendations” Kristin, July 2012

“We stayed in these apartments (Miro) for 5 nights. They are probably the nicest city apartments we have ever stayed in. From the moment we met the owner Victor we knew we we're on to a winner. They are right in the center, within walking distance of everything. They are spotless clean, and should you need anything Victor and his staff are only downstairs only too willing to help. If we could we would give it 100 out of 100." Catherine, July 2012

"Dear Izabel and Victor. Our rest in Dubrovnik in apartment “REVE BLEU” have turned out fine. Thanks you for all! If there will be a free time, we will share the impressions.Alex, July 2012

“The Secrets II apartment is situated smack in the middle of the old town. The managers were helpful to organize transport and met us by the city gate to guide us to the apartment. I can highly recommend it” Pal, July 2012

“We loved our stay at the Green Nest. It was a perfect location, the owner was extremely nice and helpful, it was clean and easy! I would recommend it to anyone coming to Dubrovnik! Thanks again for all your help, suggestions and friendliness! I can't wait for my next trip back to Croatia” Sadie, July 2012

"Isabelle & Viktor! We cannot thank you enough for all you've done for us! We just got back to the USA and the past 2 weeks have been the best time of our lives!! We did not want to get on that plane to come back home! Tim and I will absolutely be back to visit, and cannot wait until we do! So, hope to be in touch some time in the near furture! Thank you again!!"Amy, July 2012

"Our accomodation plan for Croatia was haphazard as we were ill-advised to arrive in Croatia and barter for accomodation. Therefore panic striken, when confronted with the reality of not having anywhere to sleep we enquired last minute to stay at Isabelle and Viktor's Secret IV apartment, who replied promptly and offered a discount due to it being a last minute booking. With already such a good impression we met a charismatic Viktor at the Orlando Statue (on Stradon) who accompanied us to the apartment. Once inside Viktor provides a map and points out on this map where to eat (food: market in the morning and ice cream at Dolce Vita), drink (Buza), play (Banje Beach), and enjoy local living, proving to be immensley useful.The apartment itself is a sparkling gem in the already special Old Town of Dubrovnik, offering a modern, clean 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, aircon, internet, and kitchen. However calling it just modern and clean would be unfair as it offers its guests practicality encased in chic design (Viktor and Isabelle have done a sterling job). Included in the apartment are all the amenities you could want away from home from hairdryers, kitchen utensils, salt and pepper, tea, towling, etc.The location is more than ideal, nestled in between restaurants, history, morning market and culture yet once inside is a wonderful respite from the buzz and noise of the city. This apartment is a must stay and we hope to visit again." Trip advisor review, July 2012

"Miro Studio apartment was located only a few minutes walk from the Pile Gate of the city wall. It's only a few metres from the water too... a charming little harbour with a stony beach, a restaurant and a kayak hire. Viktor was on hand in the mornings to help us plan our day. He had great suggestions for walks, tours and restaurants. The city can be very busy with tour groups and the apartment was surprisingly quiet. The apartment was modern, clean and compact with excellent WiFi. There are grocery and food shops within a couple of minutes walk. Ask Viktor for his tour of Lokrum ... only dont forget the picnic lunch like we did ! Marcus, July 2012

"Thank you Isabelle. I wish you had rentals in all of the cities I'm looking at...it's so much easier with you!:D" Vivian, July 2012

“The house -Jardin des Citronniers- has been amazing and we have had a lovely week. Thank you Isabelle“. Jane, July 2012

“We will remain spreading the word about how nice you were to us. The bachelor party was a real success. Thanks for your recommendations, without your help it wouldn't have been possible." Janine and Nacho, July 2012

“Dear Isabelle. Many thanks for your email - I think this is the first time after booking via one of the internet sites that I've actually had a welcoming email from the owners, it makes a nice change. Looking forward to our trip - the apartments look beautiful in the photographs, as of course does Dubrovnik.” Estelle, June 2012

“ Hello Isabelle! Our week in Dubrovnik and stay in Acqua ap. has been really nice! We have said many times how much nicer is it to stay in that line of apartment than in a hotel :) It is great that the late checkout is ok. Thank you!” Sanna & Seppo, June 2012

“Dear Isabel. Thank You for the meeting and for the excellent organization of our holidays. The apartment – Reve Bleu- we liked. All is well with us”. Alexander, June 2012

“Hi Isabelle and Viktor, Thank you very much for making our first visit to Croatia so special, we couldn't have ask

ed for a better welcome. The divine studio was perfect for us and was spotlessly clean, thank you also for the wine you left for us, I forgot to thank Viktor on Wednesday , I hope you are all well and we will be recommending you to family and friends, we hope to see you again in the future. Thanks again”. John and Elizabeth, June 2012

“We had a lovely stay in this spacious and light apartment- “Le Reve bleu” with stunning views to Lapad bay below. There are 2 large terraces - one slight smaller to the front which gets the sunshine and is lovely to enjoy sunset drinks. The other is a large terrace with a table to enjoy dinner with the same view across Lapad bay. The apartment is stylish and well furnished. A good bus service to the Old Town is just under 10 minutes walk away and the beach is a similar distance. Would recommend and hope to return some day soon!” Trip advisor review, June 2012

“ Thank you for the email and I would like to start off by saying that we had a wonderful time in Dubrovnik. I would find it hard to think of anything that was very good about the Swing apartment. It was both tidy and clean and had all the amenities I would need in apartment. Service was helpful, friendly and the information on local services was greatly appreciated. The location was nice although if we were to go again we would like to stay inside the old town. Many Thanks” John & Gillian, June 2012

Divine I apartment is above a street of pizzerias in the old town, surprising quiet, extremely convenient to everything Fantastic apartment in the old town of Dubrovnik. Excellent street view, great location, very quiet. The apartment is also very well appointed, everything you need, full kitchen, even a patio, clotheslines, washing machine! Wifi, air conditioning. THIS is THE place to stay! June 2012

“Dear Victor and Isabelle, I would like to thank you for everything. The “Heure Bleue”apartment was great! It was clean and cozy. The location was awesome. Even the construction process in front of our balcony did not spoil anything:). I would definitely recommend this apartment to my friends :). Thank you!” Katerina, June 2012

“Stayed for 3 days. Would have stayed longer if I wasn't short for time. Viktor was extremely helpful. Gave him a call from the airport and he he was waiting to great us outside the apartment. He provided us with lots of useful information to ensure we made best use of our time in Croatia. I spoke with Isabelle before arriving and the booking process was a breeze. The Divine III apartment was in perhaps one of the best spots in old town. No steps to get to the building and very close to the main stradun. Clean, good aircon, handy little kitchen and surprisingly quiet. No complaints. Thanks for a great stay guys”. Joe, June 2012

“ Let me first say that if I ever get the chance to return to this magical city, I will not do a Search for a place to stay. I would not stay anywhere else but The Divine Apartments. My daughters have dubbed me The Hotel Queen bc I typically find excellent places (with excellent rates) in which to stay.This time I truly deserved the title.Most striking was the excellent treatment from Viktor, the manager, who went far beyond anything I have ever experienced from other managers....and this trip marked the 28th country I have visited.The apartment's door is concealed in the midst of a busy area. No one would suspect that apartments were behind the door, which is always locked. To get into my own apartment, I had to unlock three doors. What a feeling of security and comfort that gave me. To add to that, as Viktor was carrying my luggage to the apartment, he pointed out a shop owner I could rely on if I needed anything immediately. More security and comfort.....I have also never experienced a quieter apartment / hotel room. As soon as that last door was shut, I could hear nothing from the street below. I was amazed....but Viktor can say he told me so!There are great places to eat, super little shops, an excellent wine store and a grocery store nearby. The apartment itself is incredibly clean, well-appointed, and well-stocked.You cannot miss by choosing The Divine Apartments” Mary, May- June 2012

“We stayed at Divine I apartment in May. It was clean and very comfortable with plenty of room for the two of us. Dishwasher washing machine hobs oven microwave large fridge freezer hairdryer all there. plenty of crockery and cutlery courtyard great shaded very good for breakfasts and evening drinks. the noise from the extractor fan was a little noisy but wouldn't deter us from recommending this apartment to friends and family. We were worried it might be noisy being in the old town and being close to pizza restaurant but needn't have worried, May 2012

“ We had a lovely stay at Divine studio. Thank you! Laura, June 2012

“I would like to thank you for your good service and your helpful tips and suggestions during our stay.We had a really nice and relaxing time in Dubrovnik. The apartment –Secrets IV- was situated perfectly and it was definitely what we wanted and expected.The only thing we missed, was the possibility to prepare a "typical German coffee" :-) :-) :-), Juergen, May 2012

"Hello Isabelle, I cannot express how thankfull I am!!!!That is very gorgeous and nice of you. Now I am a bit released to have some location in mind. I am really looking forward to this vacation and to meet you guys in person. Janine

"The Divine I apartment was lovely, and the service was great as well. The location is perfect for walks around the Old Town. The patio was lovely to look at, but honestly, we haven't used it once; it was too hot for that. When the temperature hits 110F, you probably won't want to be outdoors. I truly appreciated how well the kitchen was supplied; it had all the essentials and more, even cooking oils and spices. We traveled with a child and I cooked a lot, so it was great to have everything handy. The local supermarket is less than a two-minute walk and a morning bazar is not to be missed to fresh fruits and seafood (uncooked). The beach was a 10-minute walk (as expected); actually, there were multiple choices but only one was child-friendly. Overall, we already miss Dubrovnik and would stay in the apartment again” Irina, June 2012.

“Dear Isabelle, I hope you and Viktor are keeping well in lovely Dubrovnik. We loved our stay in the Divine III Apartment in 2010 so much. Dubrovnik is the most beautiful place, the apartment was exactly what we were looking for and your service was fantastic, seamless and smooth. You answered our enquiries and your information was very helpful. It was a pleasure dealing with you. We are planning on visiting again (from Melbourne, Australia) in September, 2012 and were wondering if the apartment was free? Margaret, Tony and Robert Bux, June 2012

“We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Secrets Apartment! I have completed the trip advisor review and already recommended your apartment to my family. I can't think of anything at all which could improve the stay. We were very comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped, victor gave us great advice on our arrival and we had a really marvellous time! We will come again!” Ruth & Lou, June 2012

“Hello Isabelle, I apologize for not replying until now. We had a great time in Dubrovnik and at Madrid apartment. Thank you for all your help”. Amy, June 2012

“Thanks for looking after my parents, from what I’ve heard they had a fantastic time at Divine I and they’ve told me they won’t complain if I send them away again!” Claire, June 2012

“A perfect long weekend in a Truely Facinating town. We received a very professional service from the rental company and Viktor did a great meet and greet service.The Divine I apartment was absolutely fine and thank goodness that the bed was easily able to take me in comfort being 6'4" tall. Location was great as right in the old town and so very easy to wander out to explore but also easy to return when either too warm or after dinner.What we liked best was everything-accomodation,location,frienliness of the people ,places to visit,lots of choice as to where to eat and found a great bar near to one of the churches to sit and people watch.We will return!!! Trevor, June 2012

"I just wanted to say thank you very much for a wonderful stay in Lapad. We really enjoyed our holiday and hope to be back sometime soon! We thought Lapad and especially the Old Town were beautiful and the local information you gave us on restaurants etc was very useful. “Le Reve Bleu” apartment was lovely with stunning views that we now miss very much! Thank you for organising our transfers from and to the airport and for your very kind service. We’ll certainly be in touch when we next return! Tasha, June 2012

“Can not think of a better place to stay than this! We went four friends over a weekend to experience Dubrovnik and we could not stay more central! Superb service and lots of good tips from Butterfly services also made our stay perfect. We will definitely recommend Secrets II to others” Agnetha, June 2012

“The whole Dubrovnik experience was wonderful. La Maison de l’Ete is absolutely perfect and if we return we would absolutely stay there again. Not only is the location absolutely the best in the area, Ivana was so hospitable and lovely. The place was very clean and had everything we wanted. The transfer from the airport was on time and the drive very friendly and spoke to us about the area.You made the booking very easy and we would definitely recommend you to anyone travelling to Dubrovnik. Kate, May/June 2012

“ From even before we arrived in Dubrovnik Victor & Isabelle, who run MirO Studio Apartments were incredibly helpful, answering some of the queries I had about what we wanted to do during our stay & providing us with a variety of options. We arrived in Dubrovnik, in a taxi they had organised for us & Victor met us, he was so friendly, making us feel very welcome. He gave us lots of tips about places to visit, eat, cages, bars & general tips for our stay, all of which proved to be excellent, this level of advice & help continued all the way through our trip whenever we wanted to know anything or had any questions. Isabelle was always available via email, as there was free wifi in the apartment, she replied very fast & made the subsequentarrangements. The apartment itself was very modern, comfy, light & airy with fantastic views onto the nearby bay, with everything we needed very close. All the facilities we needed were there. Our stay in Dubrovnik was brilliant, this is great city with so much to do, but without such a lovely apartment to come back to, where it was enjoyable to sit & drink a glass of wine & all the great advice we received our trip could have turned out very differently. We would thoroughly recommend MirO Studio Apartments to anyone visiting Dubrovnik” Tripadvisor review, June 2012

“ We had a fantastic time in Dubrovnik & thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, we loved the apartment, perfect for what we wanted with lovely views & in a brilliant location for everything we wanted, what we felt thoroughly made the trip was all the help/advice we received from yourselves all of which was fantastic, making our trip a lot easier. We have put a review on tripadvisor saying this & how much we recommend the apartment. We are very sad to be back home, the weather is unpleasant & there is a lot of work to do but hopefully we will be returning in the not to distant future & there is no doubt we will stay with you. Thank you again” Mrs Adamson, June 2012

“Beautiful little haven. Absolutely beautiful apartment (Secrets I), in an incredible location. You could pretend you lived there for a few days! Really well equipped so we had breakfast there in the mornings, thanks to a great handover we knew where to buy the ingredients for it! Couldn't praise it more highly, and hope to go back. Tripadvisor review, June 2012 “We loved this apartment. The location was fantastic, the Divine I apartment had everything we needed (including a washing machine and full kitchen), the courtyard was adorable, and Viktor and Isabelle gave us great recommendations for things to do and they were very helpful in dealing an episode of lost baggage. Anne, June 2012

“Thank you for organising the taxi and thank you so much for all your recommendations; we have had a wonderful holiday at “Heure Bleue”. Lokrum was beautiful, we had a great day and finished off with a wine sampling at de vino and a lovely dinner at nishta. I'm sure we will meet again, we are already planning our next visit! All the best and thanks again" Hannah & Alex, June 2012

Thank you for a wonderful stay in Dubrovnik and all your help. To answer your question, you shouldn't change a thing. Just keep doing what you're doing. Thank you again for your help. Ashley, June 2012

“I would like to reiterate how much you & Victor, Mijara have helped us while we have been here with all the helpful information & recommendations of places to visit, restaurants, bars etc all of which we have thoroughly enjoyed, as well as organising our trip to Korcula today. Not to mention the lovely apartment (MirO). Thank you again we really appreciate this". Naomi, June 2012

"What you see online is what you get, excellent apartment, decor soft and welcoming, apartment spacious, clean with very good amenities. Walking distance to major tourist attractions and restaurants as well as the port, location superb. Dubrovnik is a beautiful walled city the apartment is part of the history just wonderful walking into every evening after a day of exploring. Isabelle and Viktor excellent operators could recommend highly a stay in the Secret apartments, Dubrovnik" Trip advisor review June 2012

"Hi Isabelle, Victor, we have enjoyed our stay in Dubrovnik and the 02 apt, thank you! We have rented a car and are departing tomorrow at 9a and will leave the keys in the apartment. We will not need luggage storage at your office but thank you for the offer. Thanks again for a great stay!”Heidi,June 2012

“I just wanted to say thank you so much for helping us while we were in Dubrovnik - we had a great time and the Secrets III apartment was perfect, and made the stay very special. I hope you're enjoying the heat wave - it's not raining in London at least! Thanks again” Polly. June 2012

“Isabelle, It was a pleasure. We enjoyed the Poesia apartment and also the beach you suggested. We are definitely coming back in the future. Thanks”, Juan Carlos, June 2012

“This perfectly situated apartment “02” was a great start to our holiday. After walking into the spacious and extremely clean, high spec apartment, we instantly felt at home. The views from the balcony are amazing and make for a perfect breakfast location or a night cap view. The added bonus being a little green garden that is great for relaxing and admire ring the views. Despite being a little out of the old town, it really is an easy stroll and it’s nice to be out of the busy centre and enjoy the quiet. Sandra and her husband were lovely from the start and very helpful in any query we may have had. The local beach (about 5 min walk away) has clear sea's and a lovely beach bar serving tasty food with the view of the ocean. Also worth a visit is the modern art museum that is just opposite the beach! easy walk to shops. Basically we would go back and recommend highly to anyone who wanted a good base camp to their Croatian adventure!” Andrea, June 2012

“Thanks for your help on the reservation Paloma house. it was a nice stay!” Ivana, June 2012

“Thank you so much for the wonderful stay at your delightful apartment- Secrets IV-The convenience of it top class but for us we so enjoyed being in that space- such a cleverly designed and tastefully put together apartment! Tres magnificent! Klee, June 2012

“Awesome views! Cute appartment w/ all the necessary amenities for a comfortable stay. The view from our 3rd floor unit had the best view of the cove inlet. We watched the fisherman come in early in the morning with their catch. Saw the Kayakers go out for the day, clear, clean water of the Adriatic Sea was amazing.The management was friendly and very helpful giving us the best times to do certain activities and when to avoid the "boat loads" of tourist in port for the day of cruise ships. The old city is fascinating. There are still many scars visible from the war. Eye opening and heart wrenching. Beautiful scenery, lovely people, great local foods. Would love to go back again and see more of the countryside. Trip advisor review MirO studio, June 2012

“First visit to Dubrovnik - the Secrets III apartment is located in a great location right in the middle of the main attractions literarily as you walk out the main door you are on the Strada. The building is full of character and the apartment was clean and spacious and located on the top floor (loft) well worth the effort to climb the stairs as the view from the dorma windows are stunning. We had some concerns about the noise from the church bells which are in close proximity but the walls are about two foot thick and the windows are double glazed so the noise was not an issue in fact it added to the charm and ambiance. Great place for a family stay or ideal for short weekend break loads of sightseeing, history, great food and wine! Andrew, June 2012

“Dubrovnik was one of the highlights of our travels; it was such a delight to be in your beautiful country we would recommend anyone to visit. We loved the apartment Secrets III, the location within the old wall convenient to absolutely everything. Very spacious, light and comfortable. Decor was to my liking as I rather like shabby chic and the online photos helped me make my decision when choosing the Secret Apartments. The only criticism would be the noise but I expected that having watched a TV programme on "Dubrovnik Travel" staying inside the wall or outside the wall and I thought inside would have more character and was pleased with this decision. The transfers were excellent, the drivers immaculately dressed and the vehicles superbly clean and up market – excellent. Our driver on our return to the airport was extremely informative with information regarding the history of Dubrovnik. The website was excellent, the booking procedure worked well and the prompt response from your office with our enquiries was appreciated, good work. Viktor provided us with a personal welcome to Dubrovnik; he was an extremely happy and cheerful person just what you would want. We discovered a fabulous Greek restaurant close by which served the best squid and octopus (in a small square where the market is set up). One annoyance was the multitude of tourists streaming in each day from the cruise ships/bus tours, but that is your industry tourism and we are tourists, Viktor mentioned that possibly the number of cruise ships allowed to enter will be restricted shortly - hope so. Dubrovnik is a wonderful destination and you offer a great service. Thank you again. Dianne and Trevor Tucker, June 2012

“Thank you so much for arranging the transfer and for all the information. We look forward to our stay! See you soon! Renn & Lindsay, June 2012

“At the beginning of June 2012 we've been staying at the Le Reve Bleu apartment and were absolutely satisfied by location and service. We visited different places in Southern Dalmatia but the closest beach at the Lapad bay, covered with small pebbles, was the most comfortable, nice and clean. In spite of the house itself is high up road to the beach is quite comfortable because literally in several meters from front door there's an elevator which belongs to Hotel Kompas falling right to the beach. In the pedestrian street Uvala Lapad two steps away from the beach there's almost everything to have a meal at any time; also there are different rides and a great playground for children. At the apartment itself the view of the bay and greenery is amazing. We haven't used a grill at one of two terraces but we're sure it's great for cooking fresh fish (which you can fish with your own hands) or meat. It should be noted that the apartment is absolutely new and is decorated with much taste. The owner was so gentle that even brought a potty for our child and we were able not to take it with us. To get to old part of the town it took us 10 minutes by car; by the way parking lot is right at the front door - very comfortable. I'd like to make a special mention of Butterfly Services agency's excellent work. Isabelle and Viktor were always in touch and helped us with every little thing they could. They even helped us to solve different small problems like where it's the best place to eat tastefully but cheaply. We can recommend this apartment to tourist of any kind, elderly or with small children - here everyone can feel comfortable, nice and great”. Tatyana, June2012

„My stay at Divine III was wonderful. I am sorry I did not get to meet you Isabelle, but your husband represented the company well. Thank Viktor for me again. His recommendations of things to do and places to eat really added to my trip. Mary, June 2012

“The Citrus bay “Apartment was excellent as described by previous reviewers. Lovely patio and comfortable furniture to relax on. Service from Viktor and Isabelle at Butterfly Services also excellent. They arranged taxi to and from airport which was very convenient and perfectly on time. No need for car - buses very frequent and easy to walk to restaurants/shops etc. Also lovely walks round peninsula. Fitness required to climb up and down the stairs from apartment to road - we are in our early sixties and reasonably fit so although hard on the knees the steps weren't a problem. Took 2 very good day trips to Mostar and Montenegro - booked through Viktor so door-to-door service and small group (minibus). Also took ferries from Dubrovnik to Cavtat and Lokrum - liked both very much. The weather was very mixed while we were there but there is plenty to do and see so it didn't matter. Ruth, May 2012

“My parents had a great time in Dubrovnik. They especially liked the Divine III apartment. It's located in a great area, is very clean and has all the mod cons. They were delighted with it. Thanks again, Barry, May 2012

“We have now returned home to the UK after a very enjoyable holiday in Croatia (& Bosnia). Dubrovnik was one of the highlights and was helped by having such a nice apartment- Divine studio- right in the heart of the old city - thank you. Viktor's advice was also very helpful. We particularly liked Mali Ston, as well of course Trogir, Hvar and Korcula. Thank you again. Alan & Carol. May 2012

“We really enjoyed our stay in Dubrovnik and highly appreciated the lovely apartment- Secrets II- in the middle of the old town but also making your acquaintance including your little daughter. Claus and Teresa, May 2012

“We returned from Dubrovnik at the weekend. Just a quick email to say thank you for your help in choosing the Swing apartment and organising the transfers. The transfers were flawless, and then apartment was perfect for our needs. The location for the Ploce gate was perfect (although the first day we got a shock when we went to the Buza Gate by mistake and saw all the steps into the Old Town because we had the baby and stroller with us!). The pizza from Tabasco at night on the balcony was an extra bonus :) We will be sure to contact you if we ever visit Dubrovnik again. Many thanks” Julie, May 2012

“Hi Isabelle and Viktor, We had a simply fabulous time in Croatia and Slovenia. It began with our delightful stay with you at MirO and continued to Split, Hvar, Plitivice Lakes, Opatia, Istria, Slovenia, and ended in Zagreb. The only suggestions: nice to have the view of the harbor for a room at MirO as we had, and more information on the shortest bus trip time to leave to Split. We were on the local and it took 5 hours! Howie, May 2012

"Breathtaking views, beautiful city, very friendly people." Myself and my family have all agreed that our holiday at Bougainvilliers and in the beautiful city of Dubrovnik was the best ever. The views from our terrace were just amazing and the whole experience was helped by the very professional and attentive service from Viktor and Butterfly Services. We hope to be back again! Alan Newman, May 2012

“You can find the apartment the secret IV in the center of old town. It is perfect to explore the city and the surrounding region from Dubrovnik. It has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a kitchen. Also you have wlan, which was very important for our 12 years old son.;-)Directly when you go out from the house you find a big choice of Restaurants and cafes. Viktor the owner organized a driver from the airport to old town and gave us a lot of information about Dubrovnik. It was really good organized. If we would come back to Dubrovnik, we would stay in this apartment again. It was lovely”. Tripadvisor, May 2012

“The Hideaway and MirO apartments we stayed in with Butterfly Services were really good. They were just outside the walls of the old town in Dubrovnik. There was a great view of the little cove with the fort, which was less than 20 steps from our door. It meant that we no had no need of a pool as we could just use the sea. We had a very romantic trip, going to sleep each night with the sound of the waves. The apartments were very clean and well stocked. They had air conditioning, which was a life-saver. The beds were comfortable and made up with layers so we could add or take off blankets depending on how hot we were. Overall, we would highly recommend staying here. Thanks! Nick and Lucy May 2012

“Hi Viktor, Just wanted to say what a wonderful weekend we had. Dubrovnik is absolutely beautiful and the Divine III Apartment was just as you described and perfect for our requirements. Thanks for your excellent service, everything went very smoothly. Hopefully I will be back to spend a longer holiday in 'the pearl of the Adriatic’. Thanks again Viktor” Marie Courtenay, May 2012

“Hi Isabelle and Viktor. We had a great time thanks. “La Maison d’Ete” apartment was very nice and clean. Ivana was really nice and helpful. We were very happy with your services. The information which you gave us was very helpful. We hope to return to Croatia again sometime and will definitely contact you when we do. Many thanks. Ruth. May 2012

“The Barcelona apartment is in a very good location, right in the old town. Excellent apartment, clean tidy and comfortable. Transfer was excellent and very comfortable. All information received (description on website, booking procedure, arrival information and tourist information) were ALL brilliant. We would use your services again. Thanks”. Mark, May 2012

“We just returned from a 9 day stay in Dubrovnik. We stayed in the Secret 1 apartment for 5 nights. If you want to be in the heart of everything that the Old Town of Dubrovnik has to offer, this is the place to stay. You are mere steps away from St. Blaise Church, the Stradum, entrance to the Wall, the port, morning market square and numerous restaurants. The apartment was exactly as pictured and spotlessly clean with ample linens. The bed had a comfortable mattress and there is a full bath. Being americans we are not used to European shower setups so we ended up with a lot of water on the floor but it was nice to have a tub to soak in after long days sightseeing. The air conditioner had two remotes and worked fine. There is a TV with DVD player and sound system which we did not use. We used the washing machine and dried the clothes Dubrovnik style on a handy drying rack found in the closet along with iron and ironing board. The apartment is very spacious feeling with high ceilings and large windows overlooking restaurants, the main square with Orlando's Column and St Blaise Church. If you are bothered by the sounds of a vibrant tourist area, the closed windows block out noise and also have wooden shutters. There is an excellent classical guitarist who plays at night on the steps of the church below the window of the apartment which we enjoyed every evening. My husband bought all three of his Cd's. We brought our iPad and had no trouble using their WiFi connection. As for the rental agent, Butterfly Services, Isabelle very promptly answered every one of my emails and Victor met us at the Ploce Gate and walked us to the apartment. He also gave us a map with several suggestions for restaurants and sightseeing hints. They have an office nearby and were readily available. They can also arrange airport taxi service and days trips to the surrounding area. Viktor told us that his little girl always loves the ice cream at Dolce Vita as a special treat. It also became our favorite treat at least once every day we were in Dubrovnik. It's very reasonably priced and we thoroughly enjoyed trying several different flavors.Dubrovnik is so beautiful and we were lucky to be smack in the middle of everything in the Old Town”. Trip advisor, May 2012

Thalassa apartments - location was great, close to the beach, easy access to transport, nice, quiet and close to restaurants. The apartments itself exceeded our expectations, very comfortable, clean and modern. Transfer was very professional. Driver was waiting at the airport when we arrived and was nice and friendly. You have been excellent throughout the booking process and always very quick to get back to me on all enquiries. Mirija was the same and did a great job of letting us know where and how to get to places. Everything else was just wonderful and I have no complaints. I will not hesitate at recommending your services. Thanks for contributing towards a successful hen weekend! I put my friends in copy in case any of them wish to add anything regarding the services we received. Mayen, May 2012

„ Wir hatten sehr schöne und erholsame Ferien gehabt. Auch wenn das Wetter nicht so perfekt war, haben wir das Beste draus gemacht und viel erlebt. Es hat uns sehr gefallen in Dubrovnik und ich bin jetzt ein grosser Fan von Kroatien!Von der Wohnung „02“ waren wir einfach nur überwältigt. Die Wohnung ist sehr schön eingerichtet und die Lage ist perfekt. Das einzige wo wir bemängelt/vermisst haben war die Kücheneinrichtung. Es fehlte an wirklich scharfen und schneidenden Messern, Kochgeschirr und Pfannenwender. Da aber ist eine Kleinigkeit und wir konnten uns sehr gut organisieren. Die Wohnung ist wirklich sehr hochwertig eingerichtet und ausgestattet und hat unserem Wunsch vollkommen entsprochen. Ebenfalls wurden wir von dir und Viktor sehr gut beraten und wurden sehr freundlich empfangen! Macht weiter so! Ich hoffe aufs Bald JBeste Grüsse und 1000x Dank. Kamil, May 2012 “Thanks for getting back to me with all the further details. And thank you for requesting the later check out. Any extra time would be great, as we don’t need to be at the airport until about 18:00. Thanks for your help with everything. We are really excited about coming back to Croatia for our holidays at Acqua” Matt, May 2012

Miro Apartment was the best choice for me and my 80 year old mom. The apartment was brand new, spacious, modern, great amenities, full of extra touches to make us comfortable. The location could not be better- about one minute from the Pile gate (main entrance into the Old Town)- with some good restaurants and an ATM machine even closer...the door opens up into a beautiful private bay where you can boat, sunbathe, or swim, and it's a lot quieter than the busy resort area or old town harbor... The owners/managers, Isabelle and Viktor, really went out of their way to communicate with me for weeks before our arrival to answer my many questions, and they exceeded my expectations in terms of customer service, knowledge, kindness and in accommodating us with my mom's special needs as well. They spent time with us once we arrived and oriented us to the town and suggested great places to eat, etc. They also arranged transfers and tours that were perfect for us. We even got to meet their daughter Charlotte, who is precious and lights up your heart. They have a little hidden treasure in Miro Apartments and if you are looking for an excellent place in the best possible location for exploring the area on your own, look no further... Can't wait to return- so much to see and do, and would be so nice to stay longer and just relax and hang out more... all the best! Barry, May 2012

TripAdvisor is proud to congratulate The MirO Studio Apartments on earning the prestigious 2012 Certificate of Excellence award. Our travellers consistently commend your property with the highest praise, and we recognise your 5 rating as an exceptional achievement”. May 2012

« Tout était parfait depuis la confirmation de réservation a Secrets I, jusqu'au départ. Accueil vraiment chaleureux et personnalisé de Viktor, de nombreuses suggestions pour découvrir la ville et ses environs. Situation idéale au coeur de la vielle ville. Grand appartement parfaitement équipé. A recommander sans hésiter. Gilles, April-May 2012

„From the pleasant driver who met me at the airport, to the friendly and warm welcome when I arrived at the MirO studios, my impression was immediately very positive. The location is down a pretty, narrow street just by a cove (a beautiful view of the sea and the old walls), and no more than a two-minute walk to the walled town, and to the information centre. Even with windows open all night and all day, it was quiet and very safe. The apartment itself was simply and pleasantly decorated, and completely clean and fresh. I would definitely recommend MirO studios, and I certainly intend to return“ Trip advisor, May 2012

“We want to thank you very much for your hospitality and kindness. Our introduction to Croatia began with our correspondence with you. You have added to our enjoyment of Dubrovnik and the surrounds. We are going to Montenegro tomorrow on a tour and then leave the next day for Split...per your suggestion on a bus”. Joanne and Howie, May 2012

“I did just want to say thank-you and thank Viktor for making my stay so pleasant, and I hope to see you soon, or if not quite soon, then definitely the next time I will be in Dubrovnik. Holly, May 2012

“The Thalassa apartment was fantastic!! We all enjoyed our time there. I will come back later with comments but it is all positive!!!!” Mayen, May 2012

“Hi Isabelle & Viktor, very impressed with your arrival info. Really looking forward to our stay with you, Secrets apartment looks beautiful. Many thanks” Beau & Joanna, May 2012

“Thank you so much for your help and assistance. We'll be happy to stay with you next time. Kathrin, May 2012

“Our whole holiday ran like clockwork, from booking, to being met at the airport to the friendly welcome received from Viktor. The Divine III apartment was in the perfect location just off the main square. Lots of little restaurants serving great food. Also close to the port for easy access to boat trips. [Nice day trips to Lokrum and Cavtat not to be missed.] Viktor and Isabelle really took care of us and made us feel we really mattered to them. A great experience Travelled by Monarch and accepted the offer of Victor (agency manager) to fix transport from airport. Well worth while, as taxi driver waiting with our name on a sheet, straight out into a 6 seater minibus, a half an hour journey to the outside of the City and all for €35 or 260 Kuna. Victor met us from the cab, walked us the 3 or 4 minutes to the apartment. Spotlessly clean, a lovely lounge/dining area with a two seater sofa that converted into a double bed. Small kitchen but with everything you could need and all looked in brand new condition. Roomy bathroom with shower and plentiful hot water. Air conditioning/heating in apartment and with the mixed weather we had, we needed both! Open plan stairs to mezzanine with two single beds, wardrobe - simple but all you need. Apartment contained dishwasher, oven, hob, washing maching, hairdryer, ironing board and iron, TV, radio. Towels supplied (l large and 1 small pp). All crockery, cutlery and cooking pots. Lovely views from lounge windows out to garden, though no access. Situated above a pizzeria called Mea Culpa - recommend the pizzas there but you need a good appetite to get through a whole one! City smaller than you realise and it's fairly easy to cover off in a couple of days - Asked Victor to arrange cab back to airport and he once again met us and escorted us to the cab - really worth the money not to have the hassle of public buses. There is no airport transfer bus unless you come in on a scheduled flight! Enjoy your break - pack a mix of clothes suitable for hot and warm - it really didn't get cold at all, but it did get wet! Trip advisor, May 2012

“Dear Isabelle and Victor. Just a quick note to say thank you for your help and advice whilst Judith and I were in Dubrovnik. We had a lovely day out in Cavtat on Tuesday before our flight home and really enjoyed the boat ride back to pick up our bags at tea time. I was asked by the Monarch air stewards en-route back where we stayed, what the city was like etc and I passed on your details and those of the Divine I apartment so I hope we have put some business your way. Many thanks”. Gill, May 2012

“Good morning, Isabelle.Thank you for letting us the flat- Divine III- and we had a wonderful time!!!!Michiko's already left from here so i will check out at 11am today.Many thanks and see you later.Miho :D”, May 2012

"Please thank Viktor on behalf of me and Anna for his great tips and friendliness that made our trip two weeks ago so much better! All the best, Jyrki, May 2012

“Located in lovely historical old city. Divine III apartment is very clean. Hosts are so kind too and gave us many useful information to make our stay nice. Highly recommend ! Jill, May 2012

“We had a brilliant holiday at Secrets I Apartment in Dubrovnik. Everything was great, but one of the best things was the welcome given to us by you, Victor. All the information etc you gave us was so helpful, but your friendly, fun personality was just a joy.” Catherine, May 2012

“We had an amazing trip, thank you. We were very sad to return to England and wish we could have stayed longer. In respect of the Hideaway I apartment - its location, amenities, comfort, decor and cleanliness was impeccable - we couldn't have wished for more - very impressive. Re the Transfer - this was ideal, very organised and punctual, the car was exceptional quality and the driver very helpful and friendly - we will use again! Information wise, everything was as described. Your services are excellent- we greatly appreciated being allowed to check in early given our flight changes, thank you for organising this The only comment we would make that may require some attention - though I am not sure what can be done - is that on the saturday night we were kept awake for a few hours by extremely loud music. It is of course not the owners fault that the club plays such loud music, but I must admit it was incredibly disruptive and we were both disturbed by it for some hours and unable to sleep. I am suprised this club is permitted to play music so loud given there is a residential area adjacent to it. Luckily the club appeared to only be open on fri and sat evenings so the remainder of our stay was perfectly peaceful. As I say I'm not sure what the owner could do about this, unless there are any laws in Dubrovnik against music being played so loud in residential areas so early in the mornings, in which case maybe he could register a complaint saying that his guests are being disturbed? That would be our only negative comment, everything else was perfect!” Tina, May 2012

„ Very well located, nice and design apartments, quiet ...We spent a lovely WE. Victor and Isabelle are just charming persons and they gave us really good advice on good restaurants, typical places to visit...I strongly recommend MirO studio”. Trip advisor, May 2012

“Brilliant! Right in the heart of the old town, spotless, newly renovated and of excellent quality. Viktor is really helpful and friendly, met us at the Divine III apartment and gave us some pointers as to where to eat etc. Only minus is the bedroom, its a loft room and not a lot of headroom but its not the end of the world! Paul, April 2012

“We have just returned from our amazing trip. Thank you so much for all your help. The MirO studio was absolutely amazing! And Viktor was really helpful. We are busy planning our wedding in Dubrovnik for next year so I will back in touch shortly to ask for more accommodation help for us and our guests. Thanks again”. Emma, April 2012

“We really enjoyed our stay in Dubrovnik. The old town is fascinating and very picturesque and we really enjoyed walking around the walls and wandering around the back streets. The Swing apartment was very comfortable and in an ideal position overlooking the old town and only a couple of minutes walk to get into the town. The view from the terrace was lovely but unfortunately it was a little chilly to spend a lot of time out there. I think we would have made a lot of use of it had the weather been warmer. On one of the sunniest days we did a trip up the coast by the local bus to Cavtat which is a really beautiful place and we had a lovely meal there. Thanks again for all your help and advice when I was planning the trip and if we ever come back to Dubrovnik (which I hope we will) I will definitely use your services again. Lindsay, April 2012

"We would like to thank Butterfly Services for our great apartment- Secrets III- & a special thank you to Viktor his fantastic service & warm welcoming smile. Viktor helped us with everything & certainly made our stay in Dubrovnik a memorable one. Thank you so much for everything. We hope to see you again”. Sandi, Brent & India. April 2012

“Viktor was very helpful with everything: from the airport transfer; to advising on activities and sightseeing. The MirO apartment was clean, modern and comfortable. You just walk outside and there is the Pile Gate to the old city, restaurants, small supermarkets; everything you came to Dubrovnik for!” Trip advisor review, April 2012

“We had a wonderful time in Dubrovnik despite the weather! The Secrets II & III apartments were perfect for the 5 of us. The location right in the centre of the old town was ideal and it was lovely to just open the windows and listen to the musicians playing in the square in the afternoon! The apartments were clean and we really liked the decor.The transfers both to and from the airport were very efficient and comfortable. It was great to have someone waiting at the airport for us after our 3 hour delay! Viktor was very informative and gave us lots of ideas on what to do and where to eat. The fresh flowers and bottle of wine were a lovely welcome too! The description of the apartments on the website was generally accurate. I also think the youtube videos are a great idea and is something I've never seen before. The booking process was very efficient and I would not hesitate to use your services again when we next visit dubrovnik! Thanks again for your help. Anna, April 2012

“Excellent location just a few hundred metres on the level from the old town , but in a very quiet street so sleep was easy and long. A little cove with a bar was just 50 metres away all on its own lovely for afternoon coffee. The owners were very informed and helpful which enabled us to make the most of our stay, knowing where to get buses and boats for visiting islands and other towns. The MirO apartments were wonderfully modern and self contained with all we needed, including WiFi. I would recommend to friends for a great romantic break” April 2012

“Warm greetings from South-Africa. Firstly we would like to thank you for your e-mail regarding our visit to your country. Your full information regarding our visit to your country is impressive!! We are looking forward to meeting you”. Fanie and Lizette, April 2012

"The view of “02” apartment was absolutely amazing and we enjoyed it so much! The little garden is picturesque and there is a lemon tree where you can pick some lemons :-) The rain shower is an adventure and the rest of the apartment is just great. You can reach the old town in approx. 15 minutes and there is a bakery and a small supermarket nearby. The host "Victor" was really kind and gave us helpful tips what to see in a couple days. We will definitely come back - thank you. Boris, April 2012

“Thank you very much for all the help you have given us in planning our trip. We are going prepared for any kind of weather so thanks for the warning! We are leaving shortly so once again thanks for everything”. Lindsay, April 2012

“We had a wonderful time in Dubrovnik and our stay at the MirO studios. We're sad we didn't get to see you before we left. We felt extremely welcome by both of you when we arrived. The studio was great -- it really felt like a second home. We both loved what you've done in refurbishing the building and the design appointments you made for each unit. You can tell the care and effort you have put into making the MirO modern, stylish, and comfortable. We also appreciate that you gave us the room with the view of the harbor. Its a perfect location. We rented a car and travelled some distance each day and always looked forward to returning to the studios and relaxing before heading out to dinner in the old town. We've already been recommending to others here in Jakarta a vacation in Dubrovnik and staying at your wonderful studios. Again thank you for making our stay in Croatia wonderful. Casey and Traci, March 2012

“We had a great holiday at the Citrus bay apartment, the transfers were great. We found it comfortable and clean and fine for our family. Your service was fine and we felt we had all the information we needed”. Thanks for your help, March Louise, 2012

“We had a great time in Dubrovnik and the accommodation you provided was excellent. And Victor was very helpful and friendly on arrival. Everything was very positive. In fact we loved Croatia so much that we are coming back this year for another holiday with some family members. I am getting excited about it already! Thank you for all your help – excellent service! Matt, Feb 2012

"The stay in Dubrovnik has been very good and Secrets I, I and III Apartments are at high level.Apartments, transfer and services very good! Happy New year” Giuseppe, December 2011

« Un petit mot pour vous souhaiter une bonne fin dannée et pour vous dire combien nous avons tous apprécié ces quelques jours de dépaysement complet dans votre si beau pays. Nous avons fait des photos splendides. Notre excursion au Monténégro sest très bien déroulée - paysages magnifiques - vu le traffic sur la route ce jour là, nous avons passé la frontière sur une petite route de montagne. Nous avons été à Lopud par une journée très ensoleillée. Seul le jour de Noel a été nuageux. Les Secrets appartements sont très confortables et agréables. Je recommanderai votre site à mes connaissances si besoin est.» Marie Paule, December 2011

“Thanks Isabelle, We had a lovely stay at the Divine I apartment and would come back again! Great service! Great location! ” Lynne, October 2011

“Many thanks to you and Viktor for an enjoyable stay in Dubrovnik. Overall the Divine I apartment and the service you provided were excellent. Particularly appreciated were the smoothness of the transfer from the airport, the honesty and Viktor's restaurant recommendations. The apartment was clean, well kitted out and comfortable. If you want to improve the holiday experience for your guests the easiest way to do it is make some changes to the bed. The mattress springs are too close to the surface of the mattress, so a padded mattress protector would help, and English guests would probably prefer smaller pillows, (we would have).I only mention this because you ask how you can improve; we enjoyed our stay, thank you.”Beatrice, October 2011

“We had a great stay at this apartment. Although it is in a brilliant occasion, the Divine III apartment is very quiet and well set up. The advice we received was great and the price very reasonable for where you are staying. I would definitely recommend it” Annette, October 2011

“We loved the Secrets II apartment. It was just as pictured and most beautifully appointed. The beds were extremely comfortable - the bathroom was very lovely with plenty of wonderful hot water..... The location was amazing! We really enjoyed Dubrovnik......There was just one drawback for me (and my sister) - we both have bad knees and the stairs were a bit difficult for us by the end of the day. The two younger girls, (my daughter and niece), did not have this concern. Other than this we ADORED the place!! Thank you so much for your hospitality! Margaret (and family), October 2011

“I had a really lovely time when I visited last year and you really helped to accommodate all of the changes I had to make (due to travelling alone in the end) and really helped me whilst I was there. Dubrovnik is a beautiful place and I always recommend Butterfly Services to anyone I know who travels there. I would definitely like to come back to Dubrovnik, so I will be sure contact you when I do. I will continue to spread the word about Butterfly Services and will hopefully be in touch soon.” Michelle

“If you are looking for high quality accommodation near the old city then MirO studio apartments are highly recommended. The rooms are a good size with big double beds, quality en-suite shower-room and separate WC. They are well equipped with flat screen tv and full kitchen facilities. It was so nice to walk out of the apartment in the evening and to be so close to all the bars and restaurants and yet be in a very peaceful spot. Trip advisor review, November 2011

“Isabelle arranged for our airport transfer which was reasonable and went completely smooth. Viktor met us upon arrival at the Pile Gate and showed us around our apartment which was perfect; impeccably clean and well appointed. Viktor was great at giving us plans for how to cover Dubrovnik in our time allotted. For example, he directed us to the perfect spot to have a drink while watching the sunset. And, he encouraged us to take a picnic lunch over to the island of Lokrum. We walked over to the Benedictine monastery to find HBO's Game of Thrones being filmed. His dinner recommendation for us at Proto situated in the heart of the Old Town was the best meal we had our entire trip!”Mike, October 2011

“Modern, clean, great view! Service was very good: prompt friendly & unintrusve. “Heure Bleue” Apartment is very nice: bright, modern & clean. Sometimes photos can be deceptive, but actually, the photos here give a good idea of the apartment - if anything, they don't give a full idea of the unobstructed panorama from the balcony. Unfortunately, the TV & wireless internet weren't working at the time but that didn't matter to me & I feel sure they would have been sorted out if I'd asked (which I didn't bother). Location is v. quiet in off-season (October). Walking distance to Lapad area & 5 mins drive to the Old City.” Trip Advisor review, October 2011

“The location of the “Secrets I” apartments in the heart of the Old City of Dubrovnik, right next to the cathedral of St. Blaise. Its position is perfect for exploring Dubrovnik during the day and at night. The apartment is located on the first floor, reached by a flight of stairs. It is tastefully decorated and has a very homey feel to it. The ceilings are very high and one almost feels as if staying in a castle. The service of the couple/managers is impeccable and correct, infused with the sincere and warm friendliness. They made sure that we were taken care of down to the smallest details, they recommended to us wonderful ideas of what to do and where to eat, they made sure that our place was clean and that everything was functioning correctly, and their personal caring touches was their way of making sure that we felt right at home. Basically, they were as professional as delightful! They took care of our transportation from and to the airport, which was done professionally and without any delays or complications. We are definitely coming back and we hope to be able to stay in this wonderful place again, and once again explore and enjoy the beautiful city of Dubrovnik.” Trip Advisor review, October 2011

“This was our second booking with Butterfly Services and we would definitely recommend to others. Everything went very smoothly. The Divine studio apartment was just what we needed - very good location, very clean, good air conditioning, and reasonably priced for the old town. Isabelle and Viktor were especially helpful and we were very grateful for their friendly and efficient service.” Trip advisor review, October 2011

“Secrets I is a gorgeous, high-ceiling apartment in the heart of Dubrovnik's old town. Watch musicians and passers-by in the square below and, as the lanterns light along Stradun in the evening, listen to the calls of the swifts and the sounds of St Blaise's bells. If you don't feel like eating in, walk across to Nishta's restaurant for original and beautifully prepared vegetarian dishes. A truly memorable place to stay.” Nick, October 2011

“I rented Secrets IV apartment based on Isabelle's (Butterfly Services) proposal. The booking process was carried out quickly, promptly and friendly. Isabelle sent me plenty of information about contact info, how to find the location, how to meet etc. After arrival to the airport, I called Butterfly Services (Viktor) and we agreed where we would meet and when to get the keys. Viktor was waiting for me when I got to Old Town and he took me to the apartment. There he presented the apartment and gave me tips and hints about what is going on in the town and what to do during the week. The apartment is comfortable and well equipped, modern with a classy touch. It has plenty of windows, which open to different streets so it is nice to look around. And the apartment is smack in the middle of the Old Town atmosphere! It was always an overwhelming feeling when you stepped out and you were at once there where the action was. Of course, the hustle and buzz was very audible to the apartment but the windows closed tightly and isolated the noise outside extremely well. My biggest worry before the trip was that if there is much noise and if there are plenty of people passing by your door. But that was not an issue. I didn't see or hear any 'outsiders' inside the building during my stay although the front door (to the street) was not locked. There is a small kitchenette but you probably would use only the fridge to keep your drinks cold. There is no shortage of cafes and restaurants. The supermarket is also near. The Old Town is so amazing with all the old buildings and medieval atmosphere. The narrow streets, small restaurants in the streets, polished pavements, friendly people and excellent ice cream! Based on Viktor's recommendation, I made a trip to Lokrum island also to get some breathing space from the cruise ship tourists. Amazing, I had one bay there on the cliffs totally for myself. I truly enjoyed my stay in Dubrovnik. When I was leaving Dubrovnik, Viktor came punctually to escort me to my airport transportation (which Butterfly Services had arranged). The driver (Peter) was very polite and knowledgeable; we had a very nice conversation en-route. At all times I received friendly, prompt and reliable service from both Isabelle and Viktor. I felt always welcome and they were always able and willing to help me, when I needed that. I can certainly recommend both the Butterfly Services and also this apartment for anyone who wishes to explore Dubrovnik and surroundings. It is not cheap, you can find much cheaper accommodation within the walls but it is more comfortable than the usual hotels.” Trip advisor review, October 2011

“Thank you for a delightful stay in the Secret Apartment. We enjoyed every minute, and definitely hope to return. Nick, October 2011

„ Thank you for the lovely apartment and the great restaurant recommendation we have been to Luciens several times! The souffle is divine! We love Dubrovnik and Secrets apartments! Thank you kindly”. Dhyana, October 2011 “We had a brilliant time at the MirO and would recommend it to all our friends. Just know that we thought you were great and we thank you.” Jan and Frank, October 2011

“Thank you so much for such a nice stay, and such a nice room with a view! ...Viktor was wonderful and took good care of us. We hope to visit you again in Dubrovnik soon!” Alexandra and Scott, October 2011

“Ben and I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our recent holiday in Dubrovnik and our stay in the Divine II apartment. We are already planning to come back to Croatia again next year, possibly in October 2012, and would hope to stay in one of your lovely apartments again.” Jill and Ben, October 2011

“Great to hear from you! I was going to write to you to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay at Coconut Apartment and of course in Dubrovnik for, what was, one of the most beautiful days of my life. Our wedding was wonderful thanks to the many lovely people in Dubrovnik who helped make it so special. Kike was a star and Veronica the photographer was wonderful to work with. We had so much fun with her taking photographs in her favourite spots. Luka and Mariana welcomed us to Coconut Apartment (we called it Villa because it was so big!). They were very helpful and hospitable and even took us to the supermarket to stock up on our first day. They instructed us on using the excellent outdoor kitchen and bbq, chopping wood and gave us ideas of Dalmatian dishes we could cook outdoors. We had some memorable meals as a family on the fantastic patio area with breathtaking views of Dubrovnik and sunsets to die for! Excellent seating for 10 and lovely furniture. The apartment was even better than the web photos... very spacious and furnished well. Well stocked with good quality crockery/cutlery/cooking utensils etc. Plenty of wine glasses too. The position of the apartment is wonderful within close proximity to the old town and right on the corner to catch the 5 or 8 bus. Lovely panoramic walk (5 mins down...10 mins back uphill) Great exercise! Excellent pick up service and great to do business with you. Luka is planning to build a pool...we will definitely be returning to Coconut Villa. Many Thanks Isabelle, it was good to bump in to you on our wedding day. Luka made a special effort with lovely wedding decorations which we really appreciated.” Pauline, September 2011

“Our family holiday in Dubrovnik with two adult daughters was made perfect by the fantastic accommodation (Secrets II Apartment). We were met at the gates of the old city of Dubrovnik by Victor who accompanied our family to the apartment and proudly suggested some wonderful cafes and attractions. The spacious apartment was located in the centre of the old city and immaculately presented. We had wonderful views of the old city and the mountains from our apartment. On departure day Victor assisted us to the Taxi point. We would definitely stay here again.” Jenny, September 2011

“Für ein urbanes und großzügiges Wohnen ist das Secrets I Appartment erstklassig. Sicher, zum Einschlafen gibt es keine Friedhofsruhe, dafür sind Sie mittendrin. Besonders reizvoll ist deshalb das frühe Aufstehen, dann schlendern Sie ohne drängelnde Tagestouristen durch ein Dubrovnik der Einheimischen, zauberhaft! Das Appartment ist üppig im Raumangebot und gut eingerichtet. Lediglich die Küchenausstattung ist karg, die Vermieter unterstellen wohl zu recht, das Sie Lokale in der Stadt aufsuchen” Joern, September 2011

Очень удобное расположение. Красивый интерьер./ Very convenient location. Beautiful interior!” Tatiana, September 2011

“First of all, thank you so much for your friendly service at all times. You did deliver everything promptly, kept the promises and agreed appointments. Those are things that I personally value very much. I did enjoy very, very much on my stay in Secrets IV in Dubrovnik. As a whole, I have only pleasant experiences, Thank you once again, hopefully we meet again!” Pepi, September 2011

“After a very busy few weeks planning our wedding, we came here for our honeymoon for some relaxation. Victor organised transport to and from the airport to make it a hassel free stay. He also gave us advice on good places to eat and day trips/places to see. The air-con in the apartment was a welcome relief as the temperatures were in the 30s. The views from the apartment were even more spectacular than on the pictures. We spent 2 weeks at l’Heure Bleue” and it was perfect for getting to the old town but also has restaurants and shops nearby so there was no need for a car. The only downside was that a nearby hotel held live music in the evenings which could be heard with the windows open but we preferred to keep them shut and kept the air-con on anyway as it stopped the mosquitoes getting in. An amazing apartment and definitely better than our expectations. Would stay there again!” Catherine, August 2011

“We did have a lovely stay in Dubrovnik and especially in “La Note Bleue” apartment, which seemed ideally located for us. Everyone that we have shown photographs to is also very impressed. In terms of the weather, it is a shock to return here where it is rainy and yesterday the maximum temperatures was only +9 C. It is a shame we had to leave Dubrovnik so soon. Thank you for all!” David, September/October 2011

“My husband and I visited Dubrovnik for three nights on our way to our annual holiday destination in nearby Montenegro. What a little gem of an apartment we found in Divine! The management of the apartment arranged our taxi transport from the airport and this worked really well. Our taxi driver was wo helpful, friendly and informative. We were then met at the Pile Gate by Viktor from Butterfly Travel Services. He was brilliant. He helped us with our luggage and took us to the apartment, explaining things as we went. We cannot thank him enough for his care and attention. The apartment itself was great - not luxurious or glamorous but there was everything you would need and it was lovely and clean with a comfortable bed!!! It was so convenient for the city but so unbelievably quiet and peaceful. We couldn't have wished for anything better and it made our stay in Dubrovnik absolutely perfect. We will certainly return and when we do we will be contacting Butterfly Services. They are absolutely brilliant so many, many thanks for Viktor and our delightful taxi driver”, Kenneth, September 2011

“Citrus Bay apartment is situated above Lapad beach, we had wonderful views from the bedroom of the coast, with very clean and tasteful interior it was more than we expected. A stroll down the steps brought us to the beachfront, strip and local restaurants, and bus station. However with such a wonderful terrace with comfortable couches, dining table etc, we spent a very relaxing holiday there. Highly recommended. Thanks to Isabelle and Victor for a very professional service.” Holy, August 2011

. “We had a most SPECTACULAR stay with you at MirO. Your husband set everything off with the best first impression, completely detailing our first afternoon in the city so we didn't have to think about a thing but could just enjoy. We fell in love with Croatia (again) and want to seriously consider how we can live there. Thank you!!” Skyler, September 2011

“ MirO was an excellent location, a very clean, fun space to stay! Nice to have the kitchen appliances and fridge and just overall great experience. We were only there for 3 nights but would have loved to stay longer. It felt so cool being in an actual apt on our own verse a hotel. We did not meet Isabelle during our visit but when we arrived after hours, we called Viktor and he met us at the apartment to let us in and show us our apt for our stay. He was very nice and showed us the place and left. We went down the next morning to say hi and he talked to us about stuff to do during our stay and when we mentioned we would like to go for a run, he recommended running to the Hotel Belvedere. Very cool experience- we did not know at the time that it was an abandoned hotel but it was neat to explore and see this as it was such a huge 5 star hotel before the war. Very interesting and something we wouldn't have come across otherwise. Overall, the stay was great, the place was very clean and we would come back again to visit and recommend to anyone! Oh, and it smelled amazing in the stairwell!” Trip advisor review, September 2011 “MirO accomodation is stylish and in 2 min walking distance to the old town thus a very good starting point to explore Dubrovnik. It is bright, well equipped and clean. If you are noise sensitive it is still ok even though you can hear sometimes the restaurants nearby. Viktor, the host, is funny and can help you a lot with his useful advices. Overall we have been very positive surprised to get this very nice and for Dubrovnik reasonable accommodation that is such close to the Old Town with all the sights. That`s why we can really recommend it 100%. Watch out Dubrovnik`s Old town is very crowded due to the big passenger ships which are frequently coming for a 1or 2 nights stay”. Trip advisor review, September 2011

“Our stay at MirO Studio apartments was everything we hoped it would be. Our apartment was ideal - very clean, nicely furnished with a very comfy bed and lovely shower room. The air con was much appreciated with temperatures in the mid 80s F. The fact that the apartments were situated just outside the city wall was just right - quiet and a real haven from the throngs of people at Pile Gate and within the old town, But also so handy for the old town and harbour. We had a marvellous stay and the only downside was a 10 minute wait at the door when we arrived. We had texted our eta as instructed but had to wait to be let in! This did not spoil a lovely stay however and we'd stay there again in an instant!” Trip advisor review, September 2011

“We stayed at Miro Studio during our trip to Croatia, the hotel has the perfect location, great rooms and most importantly very clean. We would definitely recommend the apartments. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful with great tips for us.” Trip advisor review, September 2011

“Efficient, friendly communication, both before and during our stay, with Isabelle and Viktor-taxi transfers were excellent. As we were all over 63, we definitely appreciated help with our cases up the 90 steps! We had a great holiday there and would recommend the Bougainvilliers apartment to others”. Gillian, September 2011

“Isabelle & Viktor, Villa Rhapsody exceeded our expectations for staying in this lovely villa. We were pampered and spoiled beyond our belief. Casey, Marty & Jake are still talking about breakfast every morning before we headed out to enjoy the beautiful city of Dubrovnik. The recommendations made by Viktor and Gordana were always spot on. The villa is absolutely spectacular! I felt like royalty. I truly hope that we will be able to visit again. Steven, Gwen, Casey, Marty & Jake, July 2011

“We had a terrific stay at MirO. It's in a great location - really close to the Pile gate just outside of old town (close to all the sights but without the congestion and noise). The studio was terrific. It was very trendy and had everything we needed. There was free Wi-Fi, a fully stocked kitchenette, and good air conditioning. Saff was helpful with their recommendations and stored our luggage for an entire day. We'd definitely stay there again.” Trip advisor review, September 2011

“My wife and I stayed at MirO apartments for three nights just at the tail end of high season in September, and we were really pleased at our decision. A lot of B&Bs suffer on the customer service end, but the proprietor, Viktor, couldn't have been more helpful - I had stupidly failed to pack shorts, and he suggested places to get them, and he pointed us in the direction of Lokrum Island, where we had our most pleasant day on our whole trip; and when we discovered we'd left a Blackberry in our safe, he mailed it to us immediately. The place was less expensive than if we'd holed up in some anodyne hotel, and the location right next to Pile Gate was very convenient (you can get food at a nearby supermarket or bakery if you want to save money). And while MirO was a cheaper option, I don't think we would've gotten much better anywhere else - the room was immaculate, with a kitchen and good WiFi reception. No view to speak of, but it was on a quiet, lightly touristed street, which was exactly what we wanted after a few nights in Kotor. In short, if I found out a friend was going to Dubrovnik and they were going to stay anywhere other than MirO, I'd think they probably hadn't done their homework. Highly recommended.” Trip advisor review, September 2011

“MirO is a good place to stay in Dubrovnik so close to the pile gate and a little cove and beach. The room was really comfortable with very welcome efficent air conditioning.So quiet even though it is in the heart of the city so good for sleeing on a night. Great help from reception staff about where to go, we enjoyed all of the suggestions!!” Trip advisor review, September 2011

“Modern, attractive condo 10 minutes from Dubrovnik with fabulous views, great beach and charming promenade/restaurants. Parking included but bus to town is nearby and so is supermarket. Isabel and Viktor manage Butterfly and provide EXCEPTIONAL service! (We have rented over 150 times throughout the world and they are the tops!). Dubrovnik is fabulous but totally mobbed during the day! Go by 3 when the cruise ship visitors are exhausted/nearly gone. Croatia (visited 25 yrs ago), is now a very modern, cosmopolitan country, everyone speaks English, Wi-fi included - great place to travel! Butterfly will provide door to door transfer and some great half/full day excursions.” Trip advisor review, September 2011

“We have had a wonderful stay in Dubrovnik. We arrived half an hour early and the charming taxi driver was there to collect us. We were able to get into the apartment before 11am which was excellent. The apartment- La Maison de Lora”- was perfectly located, quirky and, again, charming. The beds were wonderfully comfortable. The information was very informative – we used your recommendations for places to eat and also for a day trip to Cavtat which was magical. Thankyou for all of your help. We will definitely be returning to Dubrovnik and we would not hesitate to recommend Butterfly services”. Caroline, September 2011

“We loved our stay in Dubrovnik and “La Maison de L’ete” apartment was great. The transfer from the airport was very good and everything went well. I would definitely recommend you and the apartment to friends and family. Thanks!” Simon, September 2011

“From booking the apartment online, both Viktor & Isabelle were so helpful, they arranged our transfers which were seamless, Victor met us at the apartment and went through all we wanted to know including places to visit. We had cause to contact Viktor due to a minor plumbing issue and within an hour a plumber had been and problem had been rectified. An excellent service and very reassuring. The views from the apartment are literally stunning with amazing sunsets, it's in a quiet street overlooking Lapad bay. To the right of the apartment you can walk along the scenic trail (not to be missed) where you can grab a drink or take a dip in the adriatic to cool off along the way. Lapad bay is ideally situated to access the Old Town of Dubrovnik, no 6 bus (takes 10 mins) leaves every 15 minutes and costs 12 Kuna. We took boat trip to Cavtat which is a 'must do' but we were glad we didn't stay there as most of the things we wanted to do were easier to access from the Old Town, Cavtat to the Old Town is 50 minutes on the boat. Do not miss: Lokrum Island, beautiful place, War Photo Ltd Exhibition (in the Old Town)- not for the faint hearted though, Buza II for the sunsets, Cavtat, Three Island boat trip ( we were lucky enough to see dolphins!), cocktails watching the sunset on the beach at Lapad. We had an amazing time in Croatia, the “Heure Bleue” apartment is stunning along with it's location and easy access to the Old Town, you won't be disappointed!! “ Sharon, September 2011

« Un accueil d'une extrême gentillesse pour cet appartement parfaitement situé en dehors de la foule de Dubrovnik. La vue depuis la sympathique terrasse vous permet de voir la mer, le coucher de soleil. « La Note Bleue » appartement est parfaitement structuré avec ses baies vitrées, très propre, le salon confortable, la cuisine parfaitement équipée (frigo, congélateur, lave vaisselle). La salle de bain est également très bien pour un couple. La chambre à coucher également donne un accès sur la terrasse. L'endroit est calme la journée comme la nuit. L'arrêt du bus se trouve à une dizaine de minutes a pied et vous ammène directement dans le centre de la vieille ville, ce qui est bien pratique. Vous pouvez également profiter de la palce de parking et vous balader dans la région. Tout est parfait, pratique, neuf, meublé avec goût. Incontestablement hautement recommandable". Trip advisor review, September 2011

“Hi Isabelle and Victor - We really loved your place “La Note Bleue” and your service was exceptional - that's important to making for a great experience! You folks are exceptionally service oriented and will do well! Happy to recommend your place if anyone specifically asks!” Marina and Nick, September 2011

“Great atmosphere. Great location. Great service! Very cozy. Staying there is a good value for your money. The quality of hotels in Croatia is poor,but MirO studio make an exeption!” Trip advisor review, September 2011

“Thank you so much for your help and support as well as for the fast actions that have been taken. I will for sure show my husband once your beautiful country and contact you again for accommodation. I wish you all the best. Best regards from Doha / Qatar, where I finally settled and consider now as my new home”. Katharina, September 2011

“First of all we like to thank you both for a wonderful stay in a very nice city (one of the best so far) and we as small goup have been around in Europe during many many years….The Secrets Apartment is in a great location with best amenities and comfort, beautiful decor and extremely clean. Transfer and information were excellent!! An idea for upcoming visitor would be to have the possibility to order something to be in the freezer when you arrive!! One’s more thanks for everything, and we will for sure tell our friends about all the good things we were able to.” Bengt/Timo/Juhani, September 2011

“We had a great time while in Dubrovnik and Butterfly services was a big contributor to our enjoyment. Your communication in setting up the trip was excellent -- you always replied quickly to questions and you helped reassure me that we were in good hands in working with you. The mis-step in the airport pick-up was handled well -- a driver arrived as soon as possible and, in effect, you gave us that ride for free. Viktor met us when we arrived to show us to Green Nest, and gave a really good overview of things to do during our stay. Helping in this regard was the well-designed, thorough booklet you prepared giving lots of details about what to do in Dubrovnik. I really appreciated the restaurant guidance in that book, because it helped us find good places for meals. The apartment is quirky and unique -- qualities we liked. The layout on three floors will not work for everyone but we really enjoyed it. The location -- within the old town and near to everything, including a gate to exit the walled city -- was perfect. Viktor told us about a local market for fresh food within the old city and a couple of minutes walk from Green Nest, where we shopped. The kitchen area on the top floor of Green Nest with a refrigerator gave us what we needed to store and prepare some home meals. One suggestion for improvement is to add Wi-Fi to Green Nest, although this is not essential, given lots of Wi-Fi availability throughout Dubrovnik, including a little bar just down the street from Green Nest. A feature of Green Nest that I really appreciate is double-pane glass in the windows to make Green Nest almost sound-proof. This is a really important touch, given there can be noise from outside. However, inside Green Nest all is quiet, tranquil and comfortable. Folks should know that Dubrovnik has lots of hills and steps up them, with Green Nest near the top of one series of steps. While steps come with the territory of Dubrovnik and did not bother us, some people might prefer an apartment with fewer steps to it. Overall, we loved Green Nest and think it is a top-value place to stay. We recommend the apartment, and we recommend Victor and your services. We rate the whole experience of service plus apartment a 4.5 on a 5 point scale. Let me put it differently. If I had a month to stay in Dubrovnik, staying in Green Nest would be just fine with me. In case we return to Dubrovnik, you guys will be the second ones to know, right after us. Thanks for everything and hope to visit and see you again.” David, September 2011

“We had a very enjoyable stay in Dubrovnik. Your services were excellent and we very much liked the Secrets I apartment, so much so that we are likely to return next year but would want to extend the stay to 7 days”. Jane and Mark, September 2011

“My wife and I had our wedding in Dubrovnik in august 2011. Rather than stay in a busy hotel we decided to book our own space for a more private stay. “La Note Bleue” apartment provided us with everything we wanted, a large balcony with perfect sea views, a 5-10 minute walk from the beach and restaurants and a clean modern apartment with all you need. There are very good transport links to the old town with a short bus ride. What made our stay here even more enjoyable was the help and service of Butterfly services. Viktor and Isabelle spoiled us with a wedding gift and were available any time with all requests we made”. Mark, August 2011

“We want to thank you for your help in making our stay so enjoyable. Your assistance in making sure I had everything required for the twins was very appreciated as was your general pleasant attitude. I would certainly recommend your company to anyone thinking of a visit to Dubrovnik. We found the information you provided to be very useful. We used it in selecting restaurants and choosing markets. We were also very content with the apartment you helped us choose. “La Maison de l’Ete” was lovely, comfortable, clean, well situated, beautiful view, and we can't say enough about our experience with Ivana. She was lovely and we won't forget her. The transfer also went well for all of us. The van was comfortable and the driver very pleasant and congenial.I very much enjoyed my conversation with the driver, he was very personable. Overall, we are all very happy with our choice of destination. Thank you again for all your help.” Nadine, September 2011

„We had a wonderful time in Dubrovnik on our 1st visit to Croatia. We loved the Citrus bay apartment except the steps on the way back in the evening so we rented a moped which was perfect way to get around! Great restaurants, scenery, weather and lovely people. Cost always reasonable. Local wine and beer was surprisingly excellent! The cable car is a must do included the homeland war exhibition. We did not have time for trips to Montenegro and Mostar but will hopefully do next time!“ Kirsty, September 2011

“Many thanks for your help during our recent stay – we had a great time in Dubrovnik and at “02” apartment. Thanks again and have a great holiday yourself when you get away later in the year”. Paul, August 2011

“From initially booking the apartment to arriving, Viktor was very informative and helpful. He arranged to meet us at a central location on our arrival and showed us to the apartment. After giving us a quick tour of the apartment he gave us some great tips on local places to go and eat. Always good to get some local knowledge. The Secrets IV apartment was very clean and had all the mod cons. Amazing position, right in the middle of everything. I would definitely recommend staying here to all my friends and family”. Michelle, August 2011

"The Bougainvilliers Apartment is a great apartment located just outside the Old Town of Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik is a very hilly town and as long as you can walk up steps access is not a problem. The location is really quiet at night but with easy access to the restaurants and bars. The apartment is well furnished and has plenty of kitchen utensils for food and drinks. The pool is a great way to cool down after the heat in the summer and would be ideal for kids. The transfer from the airport is really easy to get to the apartment and we were met by Viktor who helped with our luggage. We would recommend the apartment for both familys and small groups. Many thanks!” Matt, August 2011

“The Hideaway apartment was lovely: spacious, clean and modern, Great location. We'd recommend it. One thing: the bathroom needs tidying up - there's paint peeling off the walls which lets down the apartment. Also the shower really needs to be a proper one fitted at head height - waist height inconvenient!” Lisa, August 2011

“We had a really nice time in Dubrovnik, everything from the first minute was perfect we felt like at home. The Secrets IV apartment was fantastic, location great and all we can say is good things about your apartment. Also we feel very safe because we know we could call you anytime if we had some problem!!!We would be saying all the time the same things and we already told to our friends and family how lovely is the apartment and Dubrovnik!! You know to treat the tourist and make feel them like special guest. Thank you for everything and hope we can come back!!!” Anna, Ivette and Marta, August/September 2011

“Recently stayed at the MirO Apartments and thought they were excellent! Despite only being a studio, the bedroom was a good size with a large shower room and separate seating area with everything we needed from a small kitchen. The location is perfect, minutes from Pile Gate and access to the bustling Old Town, but also remarkably peaceful and situated in a lovely little sidestreet with amazing views. Viktor couldn't have been more welcoming and was always able to recommend activities or restaurants to visit. We will definitely be back!” Trip advisor review, August 2011

“Everything was great, we had a wonderful time and Miro was perfect for Thomas and I. We do wish to come back to Dubrovnik and we'll definitely reach out to you when we do!Everything was properly organized and all my family was very happy with the flats (Secrets II, Symphony, Paloma, Divine and Green nest)” Nicoleta and Thomas, August 2011

“The Divine Studio Apartment was best choice we could make offering us best best value for price. The studio is more spacious than we imagined and we had everything we needed- cooking facilities, towels, lining etc. Just downstairs the building you can have nice food, shops and the entrance in the old city is very close. At the entrance you have access to bus. Viktor and Isabelle are very nice and respond to emails very quickly so the reservation, payment and everything were no trouble at all. We had a great time in Dubrovnik and the placement of Divine Studio Apartment gave us the possibility to explore the city!”Trip advisor review, August 2011

“My husband and I stayed in MirO apartment during our wedding week. We got married in Dubrovnik on August 16. The apartment location is perfect because the street is very quiet, yet very close to Pile Gate. We also enjoyed the view very much and we thought the flat itself is perfect for a young couple.” Trip advisor review, August 2011

“Thank you very much. I stayed at Swing apartment. Everything was in order – and it worked out great. Your services were very accommodating. The patio was perfect. I enjoyed the internet and television as well. Thanks again! Trouper, August 2011

“We were very satisfied with our stay at La Maison de l’Ete. The apartment was excellent for a family with 5 people. Didn’t miss anything. High standard. We were awakened by noise from the nightclub near the beach, but it wasn’t a big problem. Terrific location and we loved the old town very much. We surly come back to Dubrovnik.” Roy Sigvartsen, July 2011

“Recently stayed at the Miro Apartments and thought they were excellent! Despite only being a studio, the bedroom was a good size with a large shower room and separate seating area with everything we needed from a small kitchen. The location is perfect, minutes from Pile Gate and access to the bustling Old Town, but also remarkably peaceful and situated in a lovely little side street with amazing views. Viktor couldn't have been more welcoming and was always able to recommend activities or restaurants to visit. We will definitely be back!” Michel, August 2011

“The Hideaway apartment was great, good location, comfortable, and lived up to the information you provided. Only issue was that we could not get the TV to work, couldn’t pick up channels. Minor issue as who wants to watch TV when in Dubrovnik, so much else to do. We would assess as A to A+. Geoff, July 2011

“アドリア海のきれいな海が広がっていて旧市街にも目前のところにあるとても素敵なペンションです。オーナーの方もとても親切でベストの観光方法を教えてくれました。値段は高めですが旧市街が目前なのと冷房完備のとても寛げるお部屋で大満足でした。”Trip advisor review, July 2011

“From the beginning Isabelle and Viktor were very helpful. We were met at the apartment and helped in with our luggage, then Viktor, while obviously having a busy day, was charming and helpful. Throughout the rest of our stay he was always available by phone to help with whatever queries we had. “Heure Bleue” apartment was clean and in good condition. The photos do give a good idea of the place. The balcony, though small, is a lovely place to sit for breakfast or alternatively to watch the sun go down. The immediate area around the apartment is quite. It is up the hill quite a way from the beach, which affords you the view, but also means a walk uphill at the end of the day. We were told of a shortcut though through the nearby multi-level hotel where you can use the lift. The hotel staff didn't mind, except for our last passage through, where the lielow I was carrying upset the concierge a bit. So just keep that in mind, if you're a keen Lielow user…Head for the No. 6 bus into the old-town. It's busy and crowded. We found excellent food and 100's of great wee shops to explore, and later we drifted up and down the narrow lanes and stairs of the old town” Luca, August 2011.

„Had a wonderful stay at the Citrus bay apartment. Very spacious, clean and spectacular views. Terrace is huge bonus. Old town is amazing. Great atmosphere and great food. We took a boat from Palace hotel. It was brilliant day out a worth every penny. Cannot wait to come back.“ Dave & Sue, August 2011

„Thank you for making our stay in Dubrovnik so comfortable.We really enjoyed our stay at MirO studio apartments and the help with advice on where to go and organising our transport home was very welcome!“ Jenny and David, August 2011

“Lovely Apartment! We thought the Divine III apartment was great - right in the heart of the old city, but quiet. It had been very recently decorated and was well equipped, with excellent air-conditioning, a washing machine and a full range of kitchen appliances and utensils. Viktor was very helpful and welcoming”. Colm August 2011

“Everything was wonderful, the locations, the decor, the views, the home “02”, the beaches, the services...Excellent¡¡¡” Amelia, August 2011

“Thank you so much for your kind hospitality during our stay with you last Friday to Monday. We had a wonderful time and the MirO apartment was just perfect. Karen Reilly, August 2011

“We really enjoyed our visit to Dubrovnik, and will definitely come back. The town is superb in every way - architecturally, historically, touristically - , and the coast and its archipelago of islands utterly beautiful. The Bougainvilliers apartment was just great. It was neat and tidy inside, and outside the terrace was always in the sun, but with shady corners to retreat to if necessary, and with plenty of loungers and garden chairs. The pool was perfect for our family. When we looked down on the apartment from the top of the cable car journey, we could see how lucky we were to have found an apartment with a swimming pool. The information on the website was fair and accurate, and the practical information in the apartment had really good ideas for activities. We took up one of them - an excursion to Mostar - and would recommend that to other visitors. The transfer to the apartment worked perfectly, and prior to that the booking experience was flawless. If you did not have a budget to eat out a lot, the impracticality of climbing steps in the heat with a lot of groceries every day might be a problem, but we did mostly eat out so had no problem with the steps. Overall, I would recommend a stay in the Bougainvilliers apartment and we hope to come back one day. Thanks for a holiday we'll never forget. Brendan, August 2011

“We did enjoy our stay at Divine III. We did like the apartment and having stayed in another one in Dubrovnik for few days at the end of the holiday I think a very strong benefit of yours is how quiet it is at night - you can sleep with the windows open. The other had a very busy late bar below, and had to sleep with the windows closed and air con on. Victor gave us a recommendation for a tour company in Korcula that organised transport back to Dubrovnik now the ferry service is not good. We used them and they were excellent – Thanks!” Simon, August 2011

“Hi Viktor and Isabelle, Thank you very much for making our stay very comfortable and homely. Also, thank you for the wedding gift and best wishes. Dubrovnik has been as beautiful as we had imagined and the “Note Bleue” apartment went along way to making that true. All best for the future and take care. Mark and Caroline, August 2011

“Your service has been truly excellent and I will certainly recommend you to friends and family as well as my various business contacts in Croatia... We really enjoyed our stay at Secrets I and the trip to Croatia was excellent – I cannot fault the whole process and yours and Viktor’s help during our stay. Thanks again” Ray July 2011

“The 02 apartment is intended for 6 persons (2 large beds and 2 bunks beds). The whole place is new and clean, the kitchen is well equipped the bathroom too. The living rooms is large and comfy. There is air conditioning in the entire apartment. Thanks to the balcony you have a great view of the sea and Lokrum Island. The rent is a little expensive but it is worth it. There is a lot to see and to do in Dubrovnik, I recommend it! The service is excellent too, Isabelle and Viktor are very nice people and will help you with any questions.” Trip advisor review, July 2011 “My wife and I found the Divine Studio Apartments while searching the web and from all appearances this was exactly what we were looking for during our week holiday stay in Dubrovnik. We inquired through the website on availability and price and received immediate response. Throughout the whole booking process and communications that followed, we always received a quick response to our questions. Upon arrival at the airport we were met by an English speaking driver who took us to the old town of Dubrovnik, The car was arranged in advance by the Divine Studio Apartment rental management company. The car was comfortable and the driver provided an overview of Croatia and Dubrovnik history and culture. A very pleasant way to start our holiday. We were met at the Dubrovnik old town gate by the Divine apartment representative Victor and he escorted us to our studio apartment. This made it very easy for those visiting Dubrovnik for the first time as finding your way through the maze of streets can be difficult. My wife and I were quite surprised to find the apartment had all the amenities one would expect in a high level hotel. It was all we had hoped for and more. The air conditioner was sufficient to cool the apartment especially since it was mid-summer and very hot and humid outside. Victor explained everything thoroughly and offered tips on were to eat and what to do. We found that the Divine Studio Apartment was not only an excellent value for the money but also in a central location with easy walking to all of old town Dubrovnik. I would recommend the Divine Studio Apartments to anyone visiting Dubrovnik and I am sure you will not be disappointed. Our stay could not have been better and we found Croatia one of the best destinations in our travels abroad and hope to soon return”. Richard & Sandy, July 2011

“Secrets 1 is just as represented in the photos; spacious, comfortable, and in the most fabulous location. Isabelle and Viktor were welcoming and very happy to help in any way. We loved our stay in this beautiful apartment in this beautiful city.” Simon and Claire, July 2011

“We spent a great week in Dubrovnik. “Heure bleue” Apartment was everything it said on website-the views are REALLY to die for!! Very peaceful area but very close to all amenities. Use of lift in Kompass Hotel was a godsend. Transfers were great as driver gave us loads of info. & was so polite. Whole experience was stress free & we would have no hesitation in recommending or rebooking apartment should we ever return to Dubrovnik.” Amelia, July 2011

“Recently stayed at the Miro Apartments and thought they were excellent! Despite only being a studio, the bedroom was a good size with a large shower room and separate seating area with everything we needed from a small kitchen. The location is perfect, minutes from Pile Gate and access to the bustling Old Town, but also remarkably peaceful and situated in a lovely little side street with amazing views. Viktor couldn't have been more welcoming and was always able to recommend activities or restaurants to visit. We will definitely be back. Trip advisor review, July 2011

“I was happy with Divine studio and pleased is has good air conditioning as very hot outside. Clean. Owner very friendly and helpful. Great location in centre of old town.” Anomymous, July 2011

“Ultra-modern amenities in a charming old building on a quiet street minutes from Old Dubrovnik and seconds from two small coves for swimming. Our room had a beautiful view of the city walls and fortresses. How can we thank our host Viktor enough for the great tips and suggestions for the rest of our trip. We followed his advice throughout Croatia and he was never wrong! We hope to be back soon” Trip advisor review, July 2011 “The Secrets II apartment is very nice, big, clean, comfortable and very well located in the middle of the old town, just beside de stradun! A big kitchen that you can cook if you are looking for it and huge bedrooms! And of course the owner, Viktor, he gave us some good advices and he was very hospitable. For sure I would come back there!” Fangio, July 2011

“We were very pleasantly surprised by how nice the Secrets III apartment was. It was beautifully decorated and is in an excellent location. I can highly recommend anyone visiting Dubrovnik to not only stay in the old town but also at this apartment. The people running the apartment, Viktor and Isabelle were very helpful and prompt in their replies. Thank you Viktor for a great sense of humor and fantastic help in organizing a taxi trip to korcula. I loved this part of our holiday”. Melanie, July 2011

“Great location in the old town, and no steps (only to come to the first floor of the appartment). Secrets I apartment is really nice, stylish and chic. Nice to cook here for your self, you feel at home. The sleeping room is seperated in a nice way from the living room, really modern equipment like music in your bedroom etc.” Sandeep, July 2011

„MirO was a very good hotel. I want to stay your hotel again. Thank you.“Yuzo, July 2011

“We have had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday in Dubrovnik. Nearly everything was better than we expected or could have hoped for though there were some “niggles” in relation to the apartment. Viktor and Isabelle were absolutely charming with a great sense of humour, and Viktor, in particular was most helpful at our arrival in advising on things to do and see. Following his instructions (they were more than just advice) ensured we did all the most worthwhile things. The transfer on both arrival and departure was impeccable. Dubrovnik is beautiful and we were fortunate to be at Lapad a 15-20 min bus ride from the main town. We found everyone helpful and friendly and their standard of English made life so much easier than visiting many other Mediterranean countries. The apartment – “Note Bleue” is spacious and well furnished – a more comfortable bed than we had in some luxury hotels, and a large sofa. The view is beautiful but having a view also means one has a significant climb to and from sea level. I strongly recommend Dubrovnik and following Viktor’s recommendations. The apartment is delightful and provided you have a REAL holiday and don’t mind a bit of exercise to and from sea without going through the hotel. Certainly we shall be visiting again.” Alastair, July 2011

“Our stay at the Coconut apartment was very memorable as it was our first trip to Dubrovnik and our son’s wedding. The apartment was spacious and very clean and well presented. The upstairs bedrooms were air-conditioned and had their own bathroom. The main bedroom was downstairs and had an ensuite bathroom but unfortunately this bedroom was not air-conditioned. The weather in July was very hot and humid! The apartment had a good washing machine which was a bonus as we had been travelling for a couple of weeks before we arrived in Dubrovnik. The location of the apartment is quite a walk to the old town as the weather, as I have already mentioned, was HOT. There is however a bus stop just near the apartment which we didn’t discover for the first few days. We would have appreciated a kettle as we are tea drinkers and the apartment was well set up for coffee making only. Also the microwave did not have a convenient plug and so was virtually unused. Other than these little criticisms, the apartment was lovely and the view from the outside raised terrace was absolutely stunning! Judith, July 2011

“From beginning to end, my friends and I had a brilliant time at The Bougainvilliers. We were met at the airport by a driver and driven to Dubrovnik for a very reasonable fee. We were taken straight to meet Viktor, and he took us to the apartment. He was SO friendly, even helping us with our bags up the steps to the apartment (the only minor complaint we had, but we were fully aware of this when we rented the apartment so we can't be too annoyed!). He gave us great local knowledge too and took the time to introduce us to the area. The apartment was spacious, two bedrooms were air-conditioned (which was great during a heat wave), the third didn’t but there were two free-standing fans for use in the apartment so that was fine. The pool was SUCH A LUXURY in Dubrovnik. We were there for a wedding and we were the envy of all the other guests who had to take on the steps to get to the beaches for a cooling swim. I would go back to the bougainvilliers in a heartbeat. It was reasonably priced, and it was everything we needed and more. It wasnt luxurious, but then wasn't sold or priced as a luxury property. We could not have been made more welcome and there was nothing any more that we could have wanted during our stay. FIVE STARS! Trip advisor review, July 2011

“The location was perfect and the Secret II and III apartments provided everything we required for a wonderful stay in Dubrovnik.Thank you for taking the time to address the issues I mentioned in my review on Trip advisor. I do understand that some of these things were beyond your control and it was unfortunate that this did happen. However we did very much enjoy our stay in Dubrovnik and did not let these small things spoil all the positives”. Peta, June 2011

“Everything was perfect. TV didn't have any English channels other than news channel, therefore would be good if there was a vast choice of English DVD, not that you want to stay in much but it would be nice to stay in (tired from travelling and watch a movie) Again as mentioned were not the kind of couple that stay in on holiday to watch TV but the option would have been nice. Other than this our stay at your MirO apartments was beautiful and we had a brilliant time. Thank you to you and Victor for you extensive knowledge. We hope to visit in the not too distant future. Thanks!” Carly, July 2011

“Service was top-notch, really friendly people who understand what value is all about. The Green nest apartment is well serviced, renovated and decorated and has all basic necessary facilities. Great advice given by Viktor about what to see and when to see it - we followed his advice and were really glad we did - super! Will visit again!” Trip advisor, July 2011

“I will try to sum it up as a beautiful apartment in the middle of the old town, clean, modern, and with a perfect Wi-Fi. The owner met us and was very friendly and nice. The Aramis apartment was really romantic and beautiful. We fully enjoyed ourselves! Your service was impeccable and you made all information handy to us! Sara, July 2011

“We had a lovely holiday at Divine III and hope to be back sometime next year” Sarah, July 2011

“La Note Bleue” is in fantastic location for bars & restaurants, especially being able to use the bottom entrance & Viktor advising us to use the lift down to the beach level at the Kompas hotel. Great views of the bay & also ideally located to travel around to other areas & the Old town. There was only the hob for cooking, which we mentioned on our arrival, the next day we were very impressed to find a brand new microwave & oven, so thank you again for organizing this. The apartment is very comfortable - very contemporary & lovely décor. The apartment its self was very clean. The information provided - description on website is very good, booking procedure, excellent, arrival and tourist information also very good. We had a fantastic time & would definitely like to return someday & of course would keep you in mind for our booking next time & recommend your accommodation to friends & family”. Jennifer, July 2011

“Our stay at Porthos was excellent. Our driver was waiting for us in arrivals at Dubrovnik airport and brought us promptly to the city walls from where we walked to meet Tea to bring us to our apartment. The apartment was spotless on arrival and the decor was beautiful. The addition of free Wi-Fi access really benefited us as we could contact our wedding planner Kristina through email easily. The laundry facilities and washing line outside the window meant we could wash our swimwear and towels as needed. The only improvements i would recommend is the shower, a power shower or even the current shower having a hook on the wall so not having to hold it for the duration of the shower and to have air conditioning in the bedroom also would increase the comfort of our stay. The photos of the apartment online matched exactly to the apartment we stayed in. The information booklet you emailed was great and we sampled the ice-cream in dolce vita! Unfortunately sugar and spice was closed on the Sunday when we found it but we will be back! We plan on having our wedding next summer in Dubrovnik and will be in touch ourselves or through Kristina to arrange possible accommodation for some of our guests”. Emma, July 2011

“We had a wonderful holiday at “02” apartment in Dubrovnik, thank you so much. Transfer perfect and Peter is very professional. Service was excellent. Information was very good. The comment I would make is that the details about the stairs going down should be more to the front of the details. It could be a problem for older people or people with babies. Viktor is very professional, very good English. His response to our problem with TV was very good. Details on restaurant etc. were very good. Booking arrangements with Isabelle was very smooth. Thank you for helping to make our holiday enjoyable”. Maeve and John, July 2011

“Thanks so much for you help in finding Secrets IV Apartment. We had a great time. Viktor was great suggesting places to visit and a very nice bloke. In all really pleased I got in touch with you. The apartment was great and served our need perfectly. In all location was great, clean, information very helpful. 2 minor comments not that it made any difference to our stay. A kettle would be handy and a universal keyboard on the computer. Saying this in help to improve, it wasn’t an issue. I have already suggested using your services to family and friends and they will contact you in the future when visiting Dubrovnik. Thanks again” Matt, July 2011

“First, there aren't enough adjectives to describe Dubrovnik which has to be one of the world's most beautiful cities and best-kept secret. Our family's stay (two grandparents, two adult children and a 9-month old baby) at The Bougainvilliers apartment was perfect. From our earliest communication with you during the reservation process; through the complicated airport pick-up and transfer of all of our stuff with 2 different arrivals and a late plane - everything went unbelievably smoothly. Viktor's "hands-on" help and his valuable advice on what to see, what times to visit and where to eat; coupled with Butterfly Services responsiveness and personalized service, was exactly what was needed . OKay...96 steps up to the Bougainvillers apartment wasn't the easiest climb, but the spectacular view of the blue Adriatic, the red tiled roofs and the old city from the huge wrap-around terrace, made it all worthwhile. The pool was heavenly and the apartment had everything we could possibly want. We've told everyone we know to visit Dubrovnik and contact you to make their trip the best it could be. And of course - with any luck - we'll be back!! Myrna and Trevor (Charlotte, NC) Daniel, Helen and baby Zach (Belfast, Northern Ireland), June 2011

“Thank you for making us feels at home in Dubrovnik. From the moment we were greeted by Viktor, until we said our good-bye, we felt very well cared for. The accommodations were fantastic; clean, convenient to old town, and a perfect place to enjoy our vacation! Especially appreciated were the recommendations for sightseeing and the restaurant suggestions. I would highly recommend Symphony studios to those considering a stay in your beautiful city! Michael, June 2011

“One of the best choices as regards to accommodation we have ever made, after travelling extensively for the last 14 years. We are a mature couple from South Africa, after careful searching we read about The Secret I on Trip Advisor and made our plans from there. From the first e-mail we were impressed with the professional manner in which Isabelle and Viktor operate. Arriving on the late flight, which was delayed on a Saturday evening, we were met by a friendly and very helpful Viktor and we were so delighted with The Secret 1 - exactly as all the photographs! W0W! Our apartment was clean and well taken care of! Even stock with basic food stuff in the kitchen! The next day was my husbands birthday, on our return from the market, we were greeted by Viktor with a wonderful bottle of Croatian wine, fresh strawberries and yummy cookies! This was so special. The Secret is romantic and in the Old Town, with the most beautiful view of the stained glass windows from the St Blaise church, right next door! Our 10 day stay was more special day by day. Isabelle and Viktor left no stone un-turned to assist us with useful information of where to eat and what to do while in Dubrovnik! The apartment is well situated, it was like living in our own comfortable home - really great We can highly recommend Butterfly Services and the Secret Apartments, many thanks to the Owners and Butterfly Services - you made Dubrovnik even more special for us!” Trip advisor review, July 2011

“We had a wonderful time, thank you. The apartment “La Maison de l’Ete” was just fine. It was very spacious with plenty of room for our big family, and Ivana was a wonderful host. The only problem we had was that the club on the beach played music until very late at night. Other than that, it was perfect. We couldn't really hear it with the windows closed. But it was very warm, so we kept the windows open. We could have turned on the air conditioning. But, it was so nice out! Transfer was efficient and easy. Thank you for arranging! The information packet you sent was a great help. Thank you for sending it! We ate at many of the restaurants and had a great time. I might recommend that you mark where they are on a map - we had a challenge finding some of them. Although, wandering the streets looking for the restaurants was a pleasant experience. In spite of the noise, we had a wonderful stay, and would stay there again if we come back to Dubrovnik. Thank you again so much. We will definitely recommend you to any of our friends going to Croatia!” Kim, July 2011

“I was a little surprised by the attention to detail given in service to us - really friendly and helpful people, gave us loads of good advice, and made the stay most pleasant. I felt we were given really good value for money, and this makes me want to return - but for longer next time! The Green nest apartment is really great, it's got everything you need - basic, but clean and very well renovated with nice decor. Thanks so much for a great few days!” Trip advisor review, July 2011

“The Secrets II apartment was clean, comfortable and convenient to everything in Old Town. It was so much more affordable and spacious than a hotel and parking was easier than expected. Be sure to walk the city wall before the hot sun and cruise ship passengers arrive (before 9am). We loved it and highly recommend this apartment”. Trip advisor review, July 2011

“We just returned from a 2 week trip through Slovenia and Croatia. Dubrovnik was our last stop and we were hoping that Divine 1 would offer both a wonderful location in the heart of Old Town and the comforts we were seeking. We were very pleased to find both! The apt has 2 air conditioners (1 in living room, 1 in bedroom), a full kitchen, wireless access, and a wonderful location off the Stradun in Old Town....with no outside stairs. Although the town can get pretty noisy at times, we never heard a sound from the streets in the apartment. And the lovely terrace got lots of use as we would drink wine and plan our next day's activities. You cannot do better than this apartment in Dubrovnik and Viktor and Isabelle were very helpful with the booking, check in, and local information. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Trip advisor review, July 2011

“Viktor met us as arranged at Pile Gate and escorted us to the apartment, where he showed us the features and recommended a few restaurants, which were excellent choices. Being on the second floor the studio has stunning views over the old town and is located in the flat part of the town, no stairs in the streets. The apartment is fully equipped with appliances for cooking, is fully air conditioned, has lots of storage and extra sheets, towels and blankets, plus lots of hot water. We had no need to contact the Managers during our stay, but their service in answering our emails and arranging payments could not have been better. The central location made it easy for us to slip back to the apartment for a "comfort stop" too. (There is only one public toilet in the entire town). For the two of us the Divine studio was a perfect choice and helped to make our stay in Dubrovnik extremely enjoyable. Thank you Isabelle and Viktor for capping off a perfect holiday”. Trip Advisor review, June 2011

“Everything about this holiday went like a dream, from the initial booking right through to the departure, helped by the excellent services of Viktor & Isabelle who run Butterfly Services. The apartment- Heure Bleue- was in a stunning location on the cliffs above Lapad bay, their photographs are spot-on, the views are to die for. The apartment is nicely furnished, comfortable & everything you would expect for a self-catering holiday. It's about a 10 min walk to the bus stop that takes you into Dubrovnik old town (a 10-15 min journey) but all amenities can be found down below the apartment in Lapad bay, pebble beach with all facilities, restaurants, bars, and supermarket. There are a lot of steps to negotiate so probably not the best location for someone with mobility problems although can use the lift at the hotel Kompass which is only a short walk from the apartment. An amazing place to visit & nothing to find fault with at all. Viktor was very helpful in recommending places to visit, things to do, restaurants/bars to try. I would highly recommend using Butterfly Services for accommodation booking”. Trip Advisor review, June 2011

“Hi Isabelle, I've just given my thoughts on Trip advisor - you got 5 stars :). Thank you very much for your great service and a wonderful few days at Green nest! I'm thinking of returning perhaps next year with another family, and am interested in a villa - something with a pool, if possible :)” David, June 2011

“Wonderful stay at MirO, and so peaceful! Viktor was fantastic at advising us as what to do and where (and when) to go, local insight made such a difference to our stay. Came for the start of our honeymoon and was really able to relax. With its quiet little cove and right next to the Old Town, location was fabulous! Viktor and Isabelle are the perfect hosts - many thanks to them again for making it the most memorable few days”. Trip Advisor review, June 2011

"The best place to stay. El mejor sitio para quedarse ! El apartamento- Divine - tiene una situación inmejorable dentro de las murallas de la ciudad sin ser un lugar ruidoso. La limpieza es inmejorable asi como las facilidades (toallas, vajilla, microondas, hasta sanwichera). Sus dueños son muy agradables y nos han facilitado todo tipo de indicaciones. Hay internet gratis. Sin duda el mejor lugar para quedarse, Paula, June 2011

« I'm happy to give you a bit of feedback but it will probably be brief as good feedback often is. I had intended to send a thank you note to Ivana, who greeted us. She was at the taxi door to meet us and spent quite a bit of time helping us to get familiar with the Barcelona apartment. She provided lots of useful information about the local markets and restaurants. Before leaving, she gave us her email address in case we needed her help. We did not but it was very thoughtful of her. The apartment looked good in the photos and it was as nice as it looked. We found everything that we needed there and we were very comfortable. The location was great. I appreciated that it wasn't up a steep side street! I can't think of anything else you should do for your guests - all of the arrangements were easy, efficient and professional. Somehow though we looked hard for apartments in Dubrovnik I didn't find Butterfly Services until quite late in my search. We recommended your apartments to an Australian couple we met in Hvar and we would recommend them to anyone else without reservation. Thank you very much,” Judy. June 2011

“What a really super holiday we had in Dubrovnik! Over the years we have traveled frequently, this past Holiday was one the most special ever – it was by far the best visit to Europe. The Secret is an amazing property and with your warm special personalities it makes one stay even more amazing! We must keep in touch, it was lovely to meet you all and spend time together, these moments are what makes the best memories!”Catherine and Wouter, June 2011

« Isabel y Victor, Disculpar que no se Ingles y te comento todo en español. Referente a los Apartamentos, te he de informar, lo siguiente: SITUACION........................10 LIMPIEZA..........................10 DISEÑO.............................10 VICTOR Y MARIA...............10 UN DIEZ TAMBIEN POR EL ESPAÑOL Asimismo informaros, que si tengo que decir a un amigo que quiera visitar Dubrovnik, que escoja The MirÓ studio apartment Un abrazo » Irene,Mercedes,Joan y Jesus, June 2011

“We had a lovely relaxing holiday at “Heure Bleue” apartment. Many thanks for all your help prior to the hols and to Viktor's during our stay. Once again, thank you very much for making our holiday so enjoyable, I’ll never forget those panoramic views, the friendly warmth of the local people & the historic beauty of Dubrovnik old town. I think we'll be back!!” Karen, June 2011

“Isabelle, Viktor, Merci merci d'avoir autant chouchouter mes parents durant leur séjour a MirO. Ils ont passe un moment extraordinaire, grâce a vous. Mon père a déjà laisse une évaluation 4 * sur trip! A bientôt » Cédrine, June 2011

“Thank you very much. We had a fantastic stay and the Secrets III apartment was beautiful. Our baby Michelle had a wonderful time also and the heat didn't affect her too much. We'll bring her again!! I will definitely recommend the apartments to friends. Thank you again and hopefully will see you in the future”. June 2011

“We have enjoyed very much our stay in Dubrovnik and the Divine studio apartment it was very nice. Thank you very much for all”. Moises, Paula and Mateo June 2011

“We thoroughly enjoyed Dubrovnik and Divine III. Viktor was very helpful. We did mention to him that there was no bread knife in the apartment and perhaps also a small sharp knife would be useful. Many thanks for such a wonderful holiday. Alan & Katie, June 2011

“Thank you so much! We loved Secrets II! Tell Victor thank YOU for me as well” Alejandro, June 2011

“The MirO apartments are in an unbeatable location and very peaceful. They are not spacious but very stylish and have everything you need. The kitchen area is a bonus. The city's restaurants are great but it was nice to be able to make ourselves leisurely breakfasts and to keep drinks and fruit cold. We loved it and don't think we could have done better.” Trip advisor review, June 2011

“Having booked the accommodation and noted that we needed to inform the staff that we would be arriving 'out of hours', I emailed Viktor at the hotel to enquire about check in. Viktor's response was quick and we were able to arrange a private transfer from the airport to the apartments at a reasonable price. Viktor met us just outside the Pile Gate, which is extremely close to the apartments. Check in was easy and Viktor gave us a map and some pointers on where to eat and what to see and when to avoid the cruise ship crowds! The MirO rooms are modern, well equipped, clean and tidy, we were on the 3rd floor so had a view of the cove opposite, rooms lower down would be facing another building, but the cove is very close and there is so much to go and see that the view from the window is not essential. This is a perfect place to stay for a short break-in Dubrovnik, close to Pile Gate for visiting inside the city walls but located in a quiet side street, when you want to get away from it all” Trip advisor review, June 2011

“Just a quick email to say thanks for everything! We had an amazing holiday and absolutely loved “Heure Bleue” apartment, it was just perfect! We are planning to get married summer 2012 and are now thinking of possibly having the wedding in Dubrovnik! Thank you again!” Lilly & Nigel, June 2011

“We had a wonderful time in Dubrovnik, much of it to your credit. Isabelle, you were wonderful in replying so promptly to my specific enquiries, your descriptions were 100% correct and the ease with which all the paperwork went, in this day and age, was quite remarkable. Viktor, your meeting us, even with a minor hiccup, and taking us to the apartment, explaining the features and recommending a few restaurants were superb. This was more than the service we could have expected for such a short term lease. The Divine studio apartment was just as we expected. It was perfectly located in the centre of the Old Town and from Philippa's viewpoint the flat ground without steps was a godsend. If we were returning to Dubrovnik, then we would take it again, and recommend it to any of our friends. Best part was actually meeting you both with the surprise addition of Charlotte. The Dubrovnik part of our tour was a standout highlight of a great Croatian experience. Again many thanks-we will certainly keep in touch.” Philippa & Don, June 2011

“Thank you for a lovely stay in the Divine I apartment, we had a wonderful time.” Bhavin and Amee, June 2011

“The Secret IV apartment could not be located more centrally, which is important in Dubrovnik since the whole point of being there is to see and experience the old town, walk to restaurants, delicious gelato stands, etc. It was a perfect setting for four people with fully separate bedrooms and bathrooms and one small common area in between, which ensures privacy as well as ability to socialize. Very modern furnishings, easy access to management and a light walk to the nearest beach” Vladimir, June 2011

“Dear Isabelle, Your services were great. You were very helpful from my very first inquiry, through to following u the week before our trip and answering any queries I had clearly. The suggested list of places you put together was also excellent - many of them overlapped with my own findings and other recommendations, which is always a good thing! In general, we were quite happy. The location was great and Madrid apt was clean and much bigger than it appears on photos. I have already raved about Dubrovnik and would definitely recommend Butterfly Services to anyone visiting Croatia!” Megan, June 2011

“Great location on the Old Town! Divine I is comfortable, clean and well equipped, with a nice little terrace. No outdoors stairs except the ones within the building (1st floor). Wireless internet connection. We highly recommend to stay there. What you see in the website is what you get. The Butterfly Company has other vacation rentals in Dubrovnik area, but all we can say is that the service offered is excellent. Viktor and Isabelle were perfect from the first enquiries to the check-out. As promised our pick up was at the airport on our arrival and a scenic drive took us to the Pile gate. We were greeted by Victor and he settled us in with information and details about our stay at the apartment. The location could not have been better as there were no steps(of which there are many off the main street)and everything was easy distance to walk. There is so much to do and see within the location including the trips/excursions. The sea kayaking was great and the old city itself absolutely stunning. The one drawback of course in being in the city is the noise levels but this was the sound of the city with all the tourists. The patio was not good during the day due to the noise from the extractor fans from the pizza restaurant but on the whole the apartment was fantastic. I would recommend this” Trip advisor review, June 2011

“We have just returned from a week's holiday in Divine I right in the heart of Dubrovnik's old town and can't rate it high enough! The service offered by Butterfly Services was superb. Isabelle and Viktor were extremely helpful and had a wealth of knowledge of the town and the area. The apartment was perfect for 2. Homely, clean, in a peaceful spot yet yards from all you would wish to do and see. Its lovely terrace (with an orange tree!) was a welcome shady spot in the heat of the day. The kitchen was well appointed and the bed very comfortable. We wished we could have stayed longer! We can't recommend Butterfly Services and this flat enough and we shall return to this beautiful city. John, June 2011

« Merci a vous et a Viktor pour votre gentillesse et aide. Ca m'a fait très plaisir de vous rencontrer. Nous avons adore Dubrovnik et la Croatie et nous prévoyons déjà d'y retourner. L'appartement Divine I était superbe, parfait pour nous deux et tellement tranquille et agréable! Nous avons utilise la terrasse tous les jours et le fait qu'elle soit ombragée etait "spot on"! C'était bien de ce dire qu'on pouvait retourner a l'appart en vitesse si on voulait et qu'il y avait magasins et marche pour les courses tout a cote. J'ai chante vos louanges et celui de l'appart a tous nos amis! Dubrovnik est une ville splendide. Donc une expérience tellement positive qu'on veut revenir! Merci encore pour tout Isabelle» Francoise, June 2011

“Loved Miro Studio Apartments, modern, stylish and comfortable studios, with everything you need to have a pleasant stay. The apartments are in a quiet street one block away from the Pile Gate of Dubrovnik’s walls, so you can enjoy the city in the morning and go to the apartment to rest and then continue discovering the nice sights within the walled city in the afternoon. It was nice to see the charming cove nearby each time we went out. Viktor was so friendly and nice, he gave us great advice of what to see and do, and where and when. I only regret not going to Lokrum Island which he recommended. I had read about the limited hours of the reception so I called Viktor ahead to tell him I would arrive around 3:30 p.m. and we had no problem. The kitchen was so perfectly equipped that you could prepare anything you want. We bought some groceries from Konsum just for breakfast, and went to some nice restaurants within the walled city (the restaurants that are not on the Stradum are fairly better). The bed was very comfortable, 2 ACs, both worked perfectly. The neighborhood was so quiet and charming; it was like I was a Dubrovnik citizen. I spent 4 nights from May 27 and really had a wonderful stay. Hope to go back in the future. I definitely recommend Miro Studio Apartments.” Trip advisor review, June 2011

„We spent 7 days at Citrus bay. First visit to Croatia- very impressed with scenery and wonderful food on offer. The apartment is very functional and met our expectations. All those steps were a bit of a pair, especially if we wanted to go back down for something! Butterfly services, Isabelle and Viktor are very helpful. We highly recommend them!“ John, June 2011

“We made the booking for week in May after reading other good reviews about the MirO on TA, and we are so glad we did. The studios are 1-2 minute stroll from the Pile gate, just down a few steps, round a corner and it's suddenly calm and peaceful. The studios have been very well converted, well equipped with good facilities and good quality fittings. We were on the top floor and had a wet room shower with good water pressure. The soundproofing is excellent and we had many good nights sleep. We had studio 6 which has a great view of the small harbour and the large fort that overlooks. Plenty to see from the window over breakfast! Nearbye is a small supermarket and traditional bakery which did us well for breakfasts. We ate out in the evening - plenty of choice and good quality too. Do ask Viktor for advice, every one of his recommendations for eating, and also for trips out were well worth doing. Save a fortune by using the local buses and ferries!” Trip advisor review, May 2011

“Hi Viktor! We had a great trip and time at Green nest and Divine III in Dubrovnik - also thanks to you! Hope all is well and you have a great (and busy!!!) summer”. Guido, May 2011

“We thought the Hippocampe apartment was well decorated, with an amazing view from the balcony, and matched up to the pictures on the website. We were very comfortable there. The bathroom and kitchenette facilities were good and clean and modern. Everything was pretty easy to work out how to use.”May 2011

“We have only just returned home to Sydney and I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at Miro Studios at the end of May / beginning of June. The studio was so well-situated – so close to the old city gate and yet so quiet – and the interior, while small, was lovely. We appreciated that everything was modern and new and created an interesting contrast to the old building. We also liked having the little beach close by – Phil swam there – and we ate at the nearby Orhan restaurant several times because it was so close, away from all the crowds and we liked the food. It was also in a lovely position. Viktor was extremely helpful about places to go and we particularly enjoyed our trip to Korcula, a beautiful old town. Also, his advice about parking was crucial. That was probably the only annoying thing about our stay – having to move the car to several different parking areas, mainly because the cost of parking at the Pile gate doubled at the beginning of June. But we did appreciate having the car when we went to Korcula. Please pass on our thanks to him for his help during our stay. We would have no hesitation in recommending Miro Studios to others in Australia. Best wishes to you and Viktor and to the other staff who were also very friendly and helpful”. Suzanne, May 2011

“We thought the Secret I apartment was absolutely beautifully decorated - light, spacious and atmospheric, and matched up to the pictures on the website. I was really glad i picked it to be the location for our wedding photos. We were very comfortable and felt very at home there. The sound system and TV was amazing! And the bathroom and kitchenette were good and clean too. Everything was pretty easy to work out how to use. It had a central location which was right in the centre of everything, and it is definitely the place to soak up the sights and sounds of Dubrovnik. - I dont think the website really warns of you of the fact that there are bells right outside the apartment windows - this added to the charm and atmosphere - but it did also disturb our sleep I understand that it is a central busy location, but i just think that you should warn people of the bells right outside. Booking and organisation was excellent - Isabelle you are a star! and were a joy to deal with. Very organised, efficient and quick to respond to emails. We would stay with you again, as on the whole we were pleased with our stay. Many thanks Isabelle and Victor for looking after us”. Kate and Nathan, May 2011

“On Arrival at Pile Gate, Victor was waiting for us and was the perfect host, warm and welcoming! He took us to the apartments himself and pointed out things on the way, which was really useful, he was really nice to deal with, and answered the majority of our questions with no problems. When we came to transfer to the Hippocampe apartment, Victor was very punctual, and kindly helped us with our bags. We wished he had come with us to the Hippocampe apartment in the taxi with us. On the way back to the airport the transfer arrived on time, the driver's were friendly and efficient, and the cars were clean, comfortable and air conditioned. Excellent service!” Kate, May 2011

“Hi Isabelle and Viktor, we got back last Saturday morning at 3 AM and Are sill getting over jet lag. We loved our stay in Dubrovnik and Croatia. Viktor was especially helpful and we almost did everything he suggested. The MirO appartment was fine and the onl;y suggestion I would make is perhaps leave some instructions in your book on how to use the telephone.”Thanks Trevor, May 2011

“Just to say a big thank you for the warm welcome we received and a nice apartment- Divine I that was well equipped with all that we needed. We had a brilliant time in wonderful Croatia and it is certainly one of the most stunning places I have seen, and everyone was extremely pleasant so I shall recommend friends to visit Dubrovnik. Thank you so Much” Kevin and Ann, May 2011

„ We were pleased with the location of the Divine I apartment, but as the pictures showed on the Internet, it was a bitold fashioned. I think Dubrovnik is a beautiful town, and we are so glad that we were able to experience the old town and all it's charms, we would certainly come back again, but not to stay in the old town, somewhere more peaceful next time.This was a very good location in the old town. It had only one flight of stairs, which is why we picked it. It was great for the shops and restaurants too.We found the apartment well equipped in the kitchen so that was good for self-catering,It was a pleasure to deal with you over the phone Isabelle; you are very efficient and professional. You made everything very clear and we had no problems at all, thank you for organising it all so well.Excellent service the transfer was perfect from the airport to Pile Gate where Victor was waiting for us. He was very friendly and chilled out which made us all relax. He took my case and went with us to our apartments pointing things out on the way. On the way back to the airport the transfer arrived on time, the driver's were friendly and efficient, and the cars were clean, comfortable and air conditioned. Many thanks Isabelle & Victor for arranging our holiday so well“ Mr & Mrs. Roberts, May 2011

„ If you were in Dubrovnik, where would you want to stay? In a characterless big global chain hotel? In a quaint pension in the old town, within the city walls? No, you want to stay in your own fully-equipped, modern apartment in a quiet street near the Pile Gate. MirO Studio apartment could not have been a better choice. We had enough room to spread out in, comfortable chairs to sit and read in, a kitchen to prepare our own simple fare when we got tired of restaurants and a table to eat at, modern bathroom facilities with an excellent shower, and, best of all, a comfortable bed in a dark, quiet corner of the apartment. It is hard to convey how peace descended upon us when we walked out of the gate and down onto our street. The apartments are literally a 2 minute walk from the gate to the old town, but it was like being in a different world. Dubrovnik old town is awash with tourists--they come in by the cruise boat load, as well as by other means, and the crowds can quickly bring out the misanthrope in me. But we had a haven to which we could escape when we had had enough. There's even a picturesque cove and a small fort right across from the building. Most importantly, we slept extremely well. Word of advice: do everything Viktor says you should do. Eat at the restaurants he recommends; buy sandwiches for a picnic where he says you should buy them, patronize the cafes he recommends. He never steered us wrong. Viktor is charming and the accommodation he runs is first-rate. You will not regret staying here. Room Tip: Stay more than one night.” Trip advisor review, June 2011

„ We had a lovely stay at Citrus bay in Dubrovnik, despite the unexpected rain for a few days! Thank you for your help and assistance during our stay. If we ever return to Dubrovnik we will be sure to get in touch. Many thanks“ Jennifer, May 2011

„We had a wunderfull time in Croatia, especialy in Dubrovnik. The visit in Cavtat with the pleasant wolk around, the impressing Mausoleum and the excellent 'fisch-carpaccio' - a wonderfull end of our journey! Thank you so much for this advice. The location and the amenities of the Green nest apartement in the middle of the old town is unique, the comfort an the cleanliness complyed with our wishes. - The Transfer to the apartement worked well. The meeting with Viktor was very likeable. The Informations we received on the website and per e-mail were correct and the booking was easy. And the arrival informations from Victor were excellent (all the nice restaurans, the nice places etc....)- The services in general were very good. It was a great pleasure to meet you. Thank you!“ Hansruedi, May 2011

“Hvala Isabelle, Bilo mi je jako ugodno u Vasem apartmenu u Dubrovniku i sa zadovoljstvom sam dao preporuku na Tripadviser-u. Srdacno, Vladimir, May 2011

„ We had a fabulous time at Citrus bay! Views were spectacular and weather amazing. Viktor was very helpful. He organised a tour to Mostar which we highly recommend. We had our personal guide, Peter was very informative. We enjoyed the quiet of Lapad bay and the escape from the hustle & bustle of the Old town. Thank you for the great holiday“ Holly & her friends, May 2011

“Recently arrived in Croatia, my family and I wanted to visit Dubrovnik. We had a very pleasant welcome from our hosts Isabelle and Viktor who gave us wise information to enjoy our stay in Dubrovnik. Green nest is a charming flat in the center of the city and is a great place to live the Dubrovnik life from the inside. We parked the car in the municipal Garatza for 20 EUR for 2 days and came by foot to the center. I strongly recommend Butterfly services.” Lotta, May 2011

“We just wanted to say we had a fantastic time staying in the Miro apartments and really enjoyed seeing Dubrovnik and the surrounding countryside. This was made so much more special by all your helpful advice and recommendations. All the best to you both from cloudy, cool and rainy Nottingham” Phil and Ben, May 2011

« Nous avons passé un excellent séjour, l'appartement Green nest était parfait et en tous points conformes à ce que nous attendions, bien aménagé, très propre et parfaitement situé. Les conseils de Viktor nous ont également été très utiles ! Je conseillerai sans faute à toutes les personnes de mon entourage qui voudront venir à Dubrovnik de choisir de séjourner chez vous ! Bien à vous, Pierre » May 2011

„ We had a great time in Dubrovnik - everything went smoothly from the car service pick-up/drop-offs, you meeting and greeting us (thanks for carrying my suitcase up all those flights of stairs), and your much appreciated restaurant suggestions. The Secret II apartment was very nice (well represented in the pictures on your website - was clean & comfortable) and in a very convenient/central location. We enjoyed Dubrovnik and hope to visit Croatia again in the future. .thanks again! Take care - enjoy your summer“. Lauren, May 2011

“Everything was find and your advice very good. Finally we stayed 2 nights in Split and after we visited Hvar. The Poesia apartment was very nice, clean and in an excellent situation. The transfer upon arrival was very convenient. Everything was fine. Thanks for all!” Silvia, May 2011

“Everything about our stay in Dubrovnik was perfect. We love the Old City; the Divine III apartment was great and your service excellent!” Camilla and Bjørnar, May 2011

“You proved to be a genuine guideline pearl within the Pearl of Adriatic, and a most friendly one :). We were very pleased with our stay at MirO studio and we enjoyed a lot our time spent in your city. And now, back to work and daily routine, it is mainly the memory of our awesome trip and your BIG KISS that keep us smiling! We'll be glad to stay in touch with you, Isabelle and Charlotte”. Mila, May 2011 “Secret IV is perfectly located and exactly as shown on the pictures. It is extremely clean. It is a perfect base to discover Dubrovnik! Isabelle and Viktor are very responsive and helpful and have provided many tips and useful information to help us make the most of our stay in town. Many thanks to both of them! We will go back!!” Line, May 2011

“If you ever want to hit Dubrovnik the authentic way, Secret apartment is the place to go! We were delighted! Isabelle and Victor from Butterfly Services did a great job - we just said we needed something to feel home and they found the ideal place for us. The setting couldn't be more genuine: right in the middle of the old town, next to the church at the end of Stradun, pale stone mansion like a true Venetian palazzo, the atmosphere is unbeatable! Better not to recommend it to anyone and keep it to yourself! If you drop by Dubrovnik, go for it. If not available (most probably), ask the guys from Butterfly Services - they'll find you exactly what you need. We were enchanted! Literally. You know what? Don't forget to buy lots of candles from nearby shops. That will put to the place the final touch into magic”. N&K; April 2011

“As Viktor knows, I had a wonderful time. I loved the Divine I apartment (especially the garden). The location is ideal. Viktor's hand-drawn map of the old town was all I needed, along with his recommendations. Airport transfer was smooth and easy. Viktor was punctual in meeting me and helpful with my luggage. For some reason, I could not connect to the internet for one 24-hour period, but it wasn't very important. The rest of the time it was fine. Truly, it was one of the nicest holidays I've had and I look forward to returning. Thank you for everything”. Robert, April 2011

“Having booked the MirO studio and noted that we needed to inform the staff that we would be arriving 'out of hours', I emailed Viktor at the hotel to enquire about check in. Viktor's response was quick and we were able to arrange a private transfer from the airport to the apartments at a reasonable price. Viktor met us just outside the Pile Gate, which is extremely close to the apartments. Check in was easy and Viktor gave us a map and some pointers on where to eat and what to see and when to avoid the cruise ship crowds! The rooms are modern, well equipped, clean and tidy, we were on the 3rd floor so had a view of the cove opposite, rooms lower down would be facing another building, but the cove is very close and there is so much to go and see that the view from the window is not essential. This is a perfect place to stay for a short break-in Dubrovnik, close to Pile Gate for visiting inside the city walls but located in a quiet side street, when you want to get away from it all” Trip advisor review, April 2011

“We rented the flat Divine III for 4 days. The flat is well located (downtown, near the main street and the restaurants) and at the same time very quiet. The flat was overlooking a small garden, and not the street. It was furnished with all the necessary appliances, and very clean. Viktor’s welcome was warm: he was on time, gave us a lot of advice: where to go to dinner, which island to visit, where to have a drink in front of the sea, etc. Moreover he was always available for us. The stay was really fantastic. Without a doubt, and with great pleasure, we recommend their website.”Trip advisor review, April 2011

“Dear Isabelle & Victor, you were really great, guys, and I mean it! We did love our stay at Secrets III apartment and, goes without words, we would always turn to you should we or friends of ours pop up in your area. With our best, best feelings.”Nevena & Kalo, April 2011

“We enjoyed our stay in Dubrovnik very much and were very happy with the apartment and the service provided by yourselves. The Citrus bay apartment was spacious and well equipped, with the patio being one of its best features. We particularly appreciated the personal service provided by yourselves, with Viktor meeting us at the apartment and giving us local information and advice – this was very helpful. You mentioned the small maintenance problems we encountered – these really didn’t inconvenience us at all because you dealt with them so promptly. We are happy to recommend your services to anyone considering holidaying in Dubrovnik”. Rosemary, April 2011

“Thanks Isabelle and Viktor. We had an incredible time in Croatia! The MirO apartment was perfect for us and if we ever make it back Dubrovnik, we'd love to stay there again! We've already recommended Croatia to all of our friends. If we have the chance to recommend apartments in Dubrovnik to any of our friends, we'll definitely send them your way. We found it really helpful that you were able to schedule day trips to Mostar and Montenegro on the specific days we wanted to go, and on such short notice. We enjoyed our drivers and the people we traveled with. The binder of suggestions in the room is how we found many of our favorite restaurants. And probably our favorite day in Dubrovnik was when we took a picnic and spent the day on Lokrum Island, which was something Viktor suggested to us. Also, it was crazy to run into you on the other side of Dubrovnik when we were visiting Kristen's brother. What a small world! Thanks again” Danny/Kristen. April 2011

“Divine 111 was a super find in the heart of Dubrovnik. It was in a perfect spot and was a comfortable and clean apartment. The only disappointment was that we did not have any gas for the stove which meant that cooking was rather difficult and we had to eat out in the evening. We did contact Viktor about this and he very kindly corresponded with the owner but the problem was not resolved. It made having a self-catering apartment a bit pointless! Viktor was a superb tour guide - we did exactly what he said to do and had a wonderful time. His knowledge of the area and recommendations made the 4 days we had in Dubrovnik packed full of exciting and worthwhile activities. The email correspondence before hand and after our stay was very good and Victor was easily contactable during our stay. Thank you again” Tom, April 2011

“Hvala za apartmany, bylo nam lijepo i vračamo se” Evzen, April 2011

“Many thanks for an unforgettable experience in your amazing city. I have always admired the beautiful citizens of Croatia and it was a pleasure spending five wonderful days in their company. Viktor is such a charming host and his information only added to our time in Dubrovnik. It was a pleasure to stay in the MirO Studio Apartments. It's location is second to none and you even laid on a live band for us! We will, of course, be recommending your establishment to all our friends”. John, April 2011

“ We would like to thank you for arranging everything so well, and for the use of Divine I apartment. It was all excellent - everything went smoothly from start to finish, and your guidance was really helpful too, in enabling us to find good things to do whilst in Dubrovnik. We were so lucky with the weather too - amazing to have such a week in early April. We enjoyed every minute of our holiday, and think that Dubrovnik is a wonderful place, and we really appreciated the welcome we received everywhere in Croatia”. Chris and Kathy, April 2011

“We had a lovely time thank you. Dubrovnik is a uniquely beautiful place .The Divine studio apartment was just what we were looking for – central, clean, well equipped. Its location was perfect – ideally central and close to everything. Thanks for meeting us so promptly Viktor – you were very welcoming and we took on board a lot of the useful advise that you gave us – all of the restaurants / café’s / sights that you recommended proved to be excellent choices and we are very grateful. On the whole we had a great time and we thank you for the part you played in making it all come together so easily". Danny and Jo, March 2011

“We had a wonderful holiday in Dubrovnik - exceded our expections in every respect. The Divine III appartment was cosy and fun, very well equipt and the garden view delightful and so surprising in a crowded town. Viktor's suggestions as to eating were spot on so that we enjoyed our meals very much. We would have liked duvets rather than blankets as we like to sleep in a cool room in a warm bed at home. We will certainly recommend Dubrovnik to our friends - Thanks for your welcome and help.“ Margaret and John, March 2011

“We had a wonderful weekend, back in grey London today! The Seville apartment was very smart modern clean and had a great shower and fully stocked kitchen. We visited in February and it was perfect and cosy for the slightly chilly nights. Also the location is great and we were at Pile gate in a few minutes. We got the bus from the airport and the owner of the apartment met us on time and was very helpful, arranging to meet us on the day we left to check out. The website is great with lots of information, pictures and different accommodation to choose at a price to suit you. We have used Butterfly services many times now as we are planning our Wedding in Dubrovnik and they offer a perfect service”.Tina, February 2011

"We had a great time in Dubrovnik and you contributed a lot to that!!! The location of the Divine studio is absolutely perfect, it was very convenient to get anywhere and it was great to be in the middle of the charming old town! We thought the studio was very nice and if felt cozy and comfortable. It was very clean, we cannot really complain about anything! We really appreciated the fact that the driver was already there when we arrived at the airport, the car was very good and clean, the transport was very easy and he was very nice and pleasant to talk to. Viktor did a great job at recommending the places we need to go to in order to take advantage of the beauty of Dubrovnik! We had some great food, saw beautiful places and enjoyed Dubrovnik very much thanks to all the tips he gave us! We would definitely recommend the Divine studio to any of our friends if they wish to visit Dubrovnik". Nicole & Thomas, November 2010

"We stayed at Secret II apartment recently and had such an amazing time in Dubrovnik! Thank you for everything, and thank you for making our stay in your country one that we will never forget."Mark, October 2010

"Dear Isabelle & Viktor. First let me say that we had a truly wonderful time in Dubrovnik and we only wish we could have stayed 2 weeks. We loved the flat - ideal for two people. It was so convenient for everything yet really quiet and peaceful. The location of the Divine III Apartment is perfect. Inside the city walls, so no problem with noisy traffic. It is only a few minutes walk to all places of interest in the old town. At the same time, although so convenient, it was very quiet, thus providing a perfect retreat form all the hustle and bustle of the town. We did not use the buses but they stopped just outside the old town, 3 minutes walk away, for anyone wanting to go to Gruz or the beach resorts of Dubrovnik. The facilities in the apartment were fine. All the information we received about the apartment, arrival information, etc was spot-on. The booking procedure was very easy.Butterfly services provided everything we needed. We particularly appreciated Viktor arranging the day trip to Montenegro for us. It is something we very much wanted to do and in fact we were the only 2 people on the trip which made it all the more interesting. If I return to Dubrovnik, which I very much hope to do, I will certainly use Butterfly services and almost certainly choose Divine III! Once again many thanks for your part in ensuring we had a really great time". Graham, October 2010

"We had high expectations which were exceeded by this beautiful MirO apartment which, whilst only a studio, was meticulously well laid out with some lovely little touches (eg fresh flower in a bowl), super-clean, and ideally located just outside the old city in a quiet street near a lovely little cove. We arrived quite late in the pouring rain to be met by Viktor, the very attentive owner, who helped make our stay so memorable with his suggestions of where to go and what to see and where to eat. We would definitely recommend the nearby Orhan restaurant which looks out over the cove. The city walls need at least half a day to fully appreciate the beautiful and dramatic setting. The old city is atmospheric, rich in a sense of history, romance and wonder but is also a place where people live and work. We certainly plan to return both to enjoy Dubrovnik and Dalmatia again. Our only regret is that we could not stay longer and we would unhesitatingly recommend this apartment and Dubrovnik". Trip advisor review, October 2010 "La semaine à Dubrovnik a passé trop vite... C'est une ville magnifique, avec une telle richesse architecturale qu'on se sait plus où donner de la tête ! Par contre nous ne regrettons pas d'être venus à cette époque de l'année (malgré les 2 jours de pluie...) car il doit vraiment y avoir beaucoup beaucoup de touristes l'été. Nous avons parcouru la vieille ville dans tous les sens, de jour comme de nuit, visité plusieurs musées, fait les remparts sous le soleil le dernier jour ce qui nous laisse un souvenir mémorable. Nous avons également bien profité de l'appartement Divine III qui est en effet comme vous me l'aviez dit un vrai petit "havre de paix". Merci encore pour la platine DVD qui a bien égayé certaines de nos soirées!) L'accès Wifi fut aussi des plus pratiques. Et je ne parle pas du chauffage qui fut vraiment utile !! Je regrette également de ne pas avoir fait votre connaissance et espère que ce n'est que partie remise!" Vanessa, October 2010

"We stayed at the Miro Apartments for a week. Victor was very welcoming and gave us excellent advice on where to go, what to see, and where to eat. The trips they suggested were also of an excellent standard. The room was off a very high quality – not large, but certainly comfortable and excellently designed. The location of the apartment was also very good – very close to the old town, in a pleasant small street near Pile Gate. Our room had a tremendous sea view too. All in all we had an excellent trip, and the Miro Apartment's were excellent value for money, in a good spot to explore the coast, and a good base to make day trips to Montenegro and Bosnia". Trip advisor review, October 2010

"We had a very pleasant stay in Dubrovnik, and thoroughly appreciated staying in the Divine III apartment. The apartment was very comfortable, and in a very convenient location for everywhere in town. The facilities were excellent, and the advice given on places to go at the start of our stay was very helpful, and helped us to make the most of our few days there. Many thanks". Clare & Michael, October 2010

"Dear Isabelle & Viktor, thank you for a wonderful stay at The Bougainvilliers Apartment . The accommodation was spacious, clean and excellently located. The view from the bedrooms and the large terrace was spectacular. We enjoyed the convenience of being so close to the city while the area was very peaceful. The transfer to and from the airport was so convenient and thank you Viktor for all your information and warm welcome. We would definitely recommend this apartment and your services to our friends and relatives and hopefully we will see you again". Susan, October 2010

"The Symphony apartment was lovely and we really enjoyed our stay there. Our only comments really are that with 5 women staying there there could have been more mirrors, particularly in the bedrooms. But overall an excellent quality apartment in a fantastic location! Thank you". Debra, October 2010

"Our stay at the Citrus Bay apartment was magical. Sitting on the beautiful patio, drinking Croatian wine, and looking at the Adriatic was beyond what we expected. Victor and Isabelle were so helpful. Victor arranged for our transportation from the airport with Petar Vlasic, who we used extensively during our stay. Butterfly services made all of the arrangements for our excursions to Montenegro and the wine peninsula. The apartment is in a fabulous location for the view of Lapad.. Even though there are many steps down to the main street, it is not a difficult walk. Often we took the city bus to town and a taxi home. Tlhe kitchen has everything you would need to cook, although local bread, cheese, and fruit are all we prepared. Having a washer was a real plus, since we came with only carry-on for 2 weeks. I can't recommend Butterfly Services enough. The planning for our trip took more than a year and Isabelle was very attentive during that time. Victor took very good care of us. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay in your beautiful apartment - and city". Lynne October 2010

"The Coconut apartment was fantastic it was roomy, very clean and exactly what we wanted everything worked and it was just amazing to sit and watch the sun go down in the outside dining area. We will definitely be back in Dubrovnik and hopefully this time for a few weeks longer. Thank you". Liz, October 2010

"You have been a fantastic person to book though, so helpful and kind! Thanks again!" Jacqueline, October 2010 "We had a fabulous time in Dubrovnik. The Divine apartment was perfect. It was in a great location, near all the sites and plenty of restaurants, but we didn't find it noisy at all being over the pizzeria. It was very clean and we had all the amenities we needed. The bed was very comfortable to sleep in. The shower worked fine. Viktor was extremely helpful when we arrived and we appreciated all his advice and tips of what to see during our stay. All together we found the apartment and service we received to be excellent and would definitely recommend you to our family and friends. Thank you for all the sunshine as well!" Sarah and Steve, September 2010

"We had a fantastic stay in Dubrovnik and really liked the Secrets IV apartment. The apartment was very comfortable with all of the amenities that we expected. The location was fantastic -- right in the center of everything going on. Your assistance, as well as Viktor's help was most appreciated. We were happy with the very prompt communication and answers to all of our questions as well as accommodating our late check in. Viktor's recommendations for activities and dining were spot on. We really loved our visit to Lokrum as well as the Banje beach. We also appreciated Viktor's suggestion to walk the City walls early in the morning which made our visit much more enjoyable as we saw what a mob scene it becomes later in the day. On our first night we tried Olivia for pizza at Viktor's suggestion and were really happy to have delicious food right around the corner from the apartment. We also tried Viktor's recommendation to eat at Lucin Kantun -- the food and wine were fantastic, the service was very friendly, and the location was charming and secluded. Perfect! Thanks again for everything! We would recommend Secret IV and your service to anyone visiting Dubrovnik and we will certainly work with you again at our next opportunity to travel back to Dubrovnik" Mark and Emily, September 2010

"We had a fantastic time in Dubrovnik; it really is an amazing city. Your assistance throughout made everything so simple and straightforward so thank you again for all of your help. The Paloma studios were very clean with fresh and modern décor in an excellent location. The transfer from the airport to the apartment was exceptional. You may remember our flight was delayed by over 6 hours. Regardless of this delay our driver was waiting to collect us at the airport at 1am. We were very grateful to him. The information we received from you was very helpful and informative. The booking procedure was swift and efficient and I felt I was provided with the best information in relation to staying in Dubrovnik. I would recommend your services to anyone travelling to Croatia". Siobhán, September 2010

"We had a wonderful time, thank-you, and got back safely. Unfortunately, we got back to the start of British winter, and have had mostly grey sky and rain since our return. So we'll just have to start planning our return to Dubrovnik. Villa Celeste couldn't have been more perfect. It's brilliantly located just outside the old town, only 5 minutes walk away from everything, but peaceful if you want to shut yourself away and enjoy the ambience and facilities of the villa. It was spotless when we arrived, and we had everything provided, from food in the fridge through to washed and folded gowns! During our stay, the housekeeper came in when we required - she was lovely, and kept everything as it had been when we arrived. Information we received before we arrived gave us everything we needed. Viktor & Isabelle responded promptly to all our mails, answered any questions we had, and were very accommodating. Everything was as we had hoped when we arrived. Everything about our stay was delightful, and we wouldn't hesitate recommending either the villa, or the service that Viktor & Isabelle offer. In fact, friends that joined us in Dubrovnik were coincidentally staying in another property managed by Viktor & Isabelle, and also mentioned how happy they were with everything. All the best and hope to see you again sometime soon..." Dan & Sterrin, September 2010

"The Secrets IV apartment was lovely. Thanks for everything!" Tasha, September 2010

"We loved staying in Cavtat, and the house we chose was a big part of that. We absolutely loved the location. No car necessary and the kids went out on their own to pick up bread in the morning. Even though down town is quite busy, the house and garden were so very quiet and peaceful. We have never spent so much time "at Home" when being away on holiday! The house was 5 *. Beautifully decorated, so very clean and well equipped. The transfer by the owner was great, on time and very comfortable. No complains about information we received either. Great services! We can only recommend your Butterfly services and Le Jardin des Citronniers . Thank you! We had a wonderful week in Cavtat. Uta, September 2010

"We thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay in the Divine apartment . Viktor and Isabelle were extremely helpful at every step from enquiry to check-out. The apartment itself is very happily situated with good facilities; it was very clean and well-maintained and had air-conditioning, which even in late Sep we used! The airport transfer was extremely helpful, and though our flight was delayed Viktor was still there to meet us at the Pile Gate. There was just the right level of information and though we preferred to explore ourselves, Viktor was available to offer advice if we needed it. If you are looking for a central, friendly and comfortable stay in the Old Town we recommend them highly. Thanks again for everything and I will recommend you to friends." Alice, September 2010

"We would like to thank you and Victor for all your help and advice on our recent trip to Dubrovnik. We had a wonderful time and the Om apartment in which we stayed was amazing. The apartment was immaculately clean and very modern. We also made a lot of use of the private pool which both of us loved. Having you to organise our transport to and from the airport left us with a very stress free journey, which was brilliant. We would have no problem recommending Butterfly services to our friends and family, and when we travel to Croatia again we will make sure to contact you to organise it. Many thanks again". Darren & Simone, September 2010

"We arrived around 5:00 on a beautiful, but very busy Saturday – the streets were crowded. Unfortunately, my husband had injured his back during the cycling portion of our trip and therefore I had to manage all the luggage as well as assist him into the Pile Gate - it was hectic to say the least. I was the first to arrive at the apartment and was delighted with what I found. The Symphony apartment was beautifully appointed and felt welcoming as soon as I arrived – I loved the décor. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. The renovated bathroom was impeccable and there was plenty of storage in which to place our clothes. The apartment was very clean and fresh. The central location was a blessing given that my husband had difficulty walking. When we were planning the trip my husband had been reluctant to stay in an apartment preferring the full services of a hotel, but he was completely impressed with the accommodations when he arrived and came to really appreciate the extra space that the apartment provided. Last, and most gratefully, the owners went the extra distance and arranged for a wheelchair to assist us during our stay. In spite of the injury we were still able to enjoy much of what Dubrovnik had to offer. The neighbors were also very helpful and friendly and the restaurant below served great pizza. Some of our cycling companions dropped by the apartment and were similarly impressed. Isabelle, I would appreciate if you could an pass this on to Minja. They were very good to us and I would not want her to think I didn't take the time to thank them. Many thanks for everything" Gail, September 2010

"We had a wonderful time in Dubrovnik and Divine apartment ! Location was amazing! Facilities were great and it was comfortable and clean. We arrange our own from the Airport no problems, apart from the written instructions were a little confusing when teamed up with the map. Lots of info given when we got there about where to go and eat, which we used a lot! You provide a very good service and we will be recommending you to our guests when we get married next year. In particular the villa in Cavtat!" Tina, September 2010

"We had a nice stay at the Symphony studio and at the Green nest. Thanks Isabelle. I would only suggest that you ensure that each property has a 'Welcome Pack'. Perhaps Tea bags, coffee - The bed is nice!". Karen, September 2010

"We enjoyed our stay at the Om apartment . Location was great, the bus was close by to go to the old town. The apartment is very well presented and was very clean throughout. We were both impressed and delighted with it's comfort. Transfer was very good organized and, could not fault anything. Viktor provided excellent recommendations for places to go and eat. Both you and Viktor were very efficient and friendly!! We would recommend your service to any friends we have going to Dubrovnik. Thanks". Doug, September 2010

"I want to thank you for one of the most brilliant vacations we ever had. MirO Studio has a perfect location. Quite, with an"own" pier and so close to the Old Town of Dubrovnik with all the facilities of food, events and all things worth seeing. The studios are in a very good condition with a modern design and very comfortable. We lived there as inmates. We got a personal service from you and good advice. We are most grateful! All the islands and things worth seeing you pointed out for us. Recommendations of restaurants and small shops where we could buy as some sandwiches and some local places we found by ourselves. You arranged a trip for us into Montenegro and you fixed it with a very nice chauffeur who told us a lot of old and modern history. We saw some very nice places with Kotor and a little island deep in the bay. The nature was very beautiful, but there was a big difference between the countries. It was an interesting trip to make but we felt more like home in Dubrovnik. We also reflected over the nice people who invited us to many restaurants, they were very friendly and accepted a no thanks for a no thanks. We have been on other places where these people can be very irritating and disturbing, but not here in Dubrovnik. Thanks! But that memory which stays a long long time is the feeling that we were not only guests but someone you have known for a long time. The warm hospitality and the nice atmosphere you created is far from the usual at hotels and apartments. Thank you once again for the nice days. I haven't mentioned the weather, the clear water, the nature, the museum on the top, the market, the night strolling in the alleys of Old Dubrovnik. We have still something to come back and discover. And I hope we can see each other again. Thank you for the memories! Hope to see you in the future!" Ulf, September 2010

"The Miro Apartment was just perfect for our stay in Dubrovnik. We loved our apartment its so clever with it's layout. Very modern with funky designs so it was right up our street! It's in a perfect location just a couple of minutes walk from the Pile Gate. Isabelle & Viktor were fantastic; nothing is too much of a problem. Vikor gave us advice when we asked about places to visit and places to eat and drink. We had never visited Dubrovnik before, we were so surprised when we arrived how stunning it was, it was a holiday with a difference for us and we will certainly be back in the future. If your looking for a nice sandy beach ask Victor about the lovely quiet magical beach near the fancy villas (can't remember the name) and he tell you how to get there it's worth the 40 min walk to get to! We also took the ferry to Lokram Island, it's worth a trip. Gils Bar is great for drinks, fab cocktails, great views but it's very expensive! Buzz Bar at night is a must! It's tricky to find, but when you get there you will see a sign saying cold drinks with the entrance cut out the wall you will come to the top of the bar and just go WOW!! Will say no more apart from the bar is right at the sea with just the moonlight lighting the bar, go all the way down to the bottom, it's stunning and a memory I'll never forget. Great holiday, great apartment, good food & drink a holiday that will not disappoint :). Trip advisor review, September 2010

"We had a truly wonderful time all over Croatia!! What a beautiful, peaceful, hospitable country with so much to be proud of.......and so much respect shown to its vast history! WOW! As for the Divine studio apartment......that was just the best place to start our holiday. Peter picked us up promptly from the airport in his comfortable vehicle and competently answered all our eager questions on the drive into D. We were so thrilled to find how centrally the studio was situated in the Old Town and let us feel, straight away, that we had stepped back in time....a long time!!! Viktor was amazing with his enthusiasm and thorough knowledge of the area and gave us great tips on how to get started in seeing the beautiful city...thanks soooo much Viktor! The apartment had all that we needed to make us comfortable and was spotlessly clean and well furnished. Thanks for the little extras, like tea and coffee in the cupboard and milk in the fridge! We found the studio when we googgled accommodation from S.A. and found the apartment to be just as it had been advertised.....what would be available, how it looked, location etc. We appreciate that, as some places mislead you with photos etc. Thank you Isabelle for all your help, in advance, over the internet. Once again, thanks for making our start to this unforgettable holiday so great and may you always be full! Remember............if you ever make it to sunny South Africa..........look us up!" Mal and Sue Taylor, September 2010

"Good quality self-catering accommodation and a top-notch location, barely a minute's walk from the Pile gate and the entrance to the old city. It feels like a family run business, and the staff was knowledgeable, friendly and couldn't do enough to help: organising airport transfers, showing us the best beaches to go to, etc. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat. One of the most pleasant stays I've had. Thank you so much :)." Trip advisor review, September 2010

"Our room had a view of the bay, which was magical! The MirO studio had every amenity imaginable and it was very clean, tidy and modern. The carpet was a bit stained, but certainly doesn't detract from the stay. The city is at your doorstep! Trip advisor review, September 2010 "In a little quiet alley close to the Old Town of Dubrovnik we found our perfect staying. We slept very good after having been on sightseeing and eating excellent. The management of the MirO, Isabel and Viktor, supported us with excellent tips of where to eat, nice islands, sightseeing and much more. It is thanks to Isabel and Viktor we got a fantastic week with a special touch of a privilege guest. Thank you Isabelle and Viktor!" Trip advisor review, September 2010

"We stayed at the Miro Apartments for a week. Victor was very welcoming and gave us excellent advice on where to go, what to see, and where to eat. The trips they suggested were also of an excellent standard. The room was off a very high quality – not large, but certainly comfortable and excellently designed. The location of the apartment was also very good – very close to the old town, in a pleasant small street near Pile Gate. Our room had a tremendous sea view too. All in all we had an excellent trip, and the Miro Apartment's were excellent value for money, in a good spot to explore the coast, and a good base to make day trips to Montenegro and Bosnia". Trip advisor review, September 2010

"This little apartment Divine III offers everything that you will need for a wonderful stay in the beautiful city of Dubrovnik. Fully renovated and immaculately clean we immediately fell in love with it. The location is perfect being situated right in the centre of the old city but a short walk from the beaches. Viktor offered a friendly welcome and plenty of information to help us get our holiday off to a great start. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this lovely apartment. The only drawback for some people might be that it is situated on the top floor and might present difficulties for those who find stairs difficult." Ben, September 2010

"We had a very enjoyable time in Dubrovnik. The Symphony studio apartment was excellent and the sofa-bed turned out to be quiet comfortable after all! We felt towels were not enough… It might be better if more towels were provided for people staying longer than 3 nights? Or have the towels changed very 2 days? Overall though, the apartment was excellent and perfectly located. If we were coming again we would definitely consider staying with you. Many thanks". Colm, September 2010

"We had a wonderful time in Dubrovnik it really is a beautiful place! The Symphony Apartment is really nicely decorated in a good location, and very clean - we were surprised how big it was as the photographs on the website make it seem smaller. If we had a criticism it would be how noisy it was as the windows did not really block out any noise from outside. Transfer was a good choice. The driver was waiting for us, really nice car and he was helpful in recommending things for us to do during our stay. The information we received was perfect really, no problems at all, some really helpful information regarding restaurants, places to see etc…Thanks for all you help". Kelly, September 2010

"The Hideaway apartment was nice and met our expectations; especially the closeness to the sea was lovely. The only thing on the negative side was quit a lot of noise at night (from nearby Latino bar?). Your service has been excellent. Thank you". Hege, September 2010

"Modern and central location. The MirO studios had a small kitchen, bathroom, living area and bed area. They were compact but very nicely done, with modern decor of a high standard. They were located just next to Pile Gate, next to the old town, and were also only a few steps from the sea. There were numerous restaurants very close by, and the main old town bus stop was also within a two minute walk. The owners were very welcoming, and provided lots of tips. Overall, would definitely recommend" Trip advisor review, September 2010

"We stayed at Divine I apartment in the Old town. Location, fantastic, middle of old town but still quiet, very comfortable apartment with a great little garden, nicely decorated. Very happy with everything overall, info was very good and description very accurate. I Would happily recommend as a great place to stay to visit Dubrovnik. Might be an idea to warn people about the "any flight" check in at the airport so people can allow extra time, it was very chaotic on Sunday!! Thanks for everything, we will return!" Steve, September 2010

"The Green nest apartment was perfect, your services and all other things too. Thanks for all". Manfred, September 2010

"Greetings from Ireland. Symphony Apartment was perfect. Spacious & clean. Could have done with more Towels when staying for 7 days. But I got some extra ones when I met the cleaning lady. Pity about the stairs (we were on 2 nd floor and Imelda was on crutches!!!!!!!!!). Otherwise, lovely. Dubrovnik is a lovely city, weather was lovely. We enjoyed our holiday. Thanks Victor & Isabelle". Pat, September 2010

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Miro Apartment from the 4th to the 7th September. The apartment was spotlessly clean and perfect for our needs as we were travelling with our 7 month old baby. The travel cot for the little man was ideal as it had a decent mattress and he slept beautifully. Also the apartment was on the first floor so not too many steps which is a must when travelling with a baby. Viktor also provided us with some excellent local knowledge. Excellent location as only a minutes walk to the Pile Gate and very quiet". Trip advisor review, September 2010

"We did indeed have a lovely time in Dubrovnik and are home safely. The Divine I apartment was clean, comfortable and well equipped. The location was great in terms of being central to where we needed to be. Decor was fine, although a little dated. The information I received from you before arrival was helpful. Viktor also provided some helpful information on arrival. There were some useful leaflets in the apartment. Your website provided helpful information about the apartment". Anne, September 2010

"Symphony studio is a nice apartment in an amazing location. Great information and service. Appreciated all amenities". Ana, September 2010

"Thank you Isabelle – Le Jardin des Citronniers was an excellent place for our holiday. Perfect hosts and perfect location. Many thanks, Dan. August 2010

"We had such an amazing few days in the magical city of Dubrovnik. The transfer was so convenient (the driver even had a baby seat!) and the Symphony V apartment was extremely clean and comfortable with beautiful views. The position just off the main street could not have been better and we would certainly recommend your service to friends and family. It was a perfect little holiday and we look forward to a return visit to Croatia at some point. Thank you". Alida, September 2010

"Isabelle - thank you so much for our time at the Coconut - we had a wonderful stay and very much enjoyed ourselves. The terraces in particular were spectacular. Location was great - although the 15 min walk to the old town was a bit exaggerated as would suggest it was a bit more like 20 min, facilities and cleanliness was good - Decor lovely and nice homely touches. Info we received was good. Overall we are happy customers and what a beautiful town Dubrovnik is! Michaela, September 2010

"We had a wonderful time at Paloma studio . The location is so perfect that we felt as a part of the town. Thanks to the beautiful intimate interior we immediately felt at home. We can just say that our apartment was the source of envy for all the guests at the wedding we attended and we loved everything about it. We even found out that it was better designed and more comfortable than the 5-star hotel where the other guests stayed. We recommend it to all our friends who plan to travel there in the future. We really appreciated the welcome we received! Thank you". Gaby August 2010 "Just want to say Thanks for the great apartment; Secret was just perfect for us! We loved our holiday; Dubrovnik is such a stunning place! We will be back! Jemma, August 2010

"We stayed for 3 nights at the Divine studio and thought it was great. Victor was extremely helpful on arrival; he met us at the gates and gave us some great suggestions for restaurants and things to see. Our transfer from the airport was on time, clean and the driver was extremely friendly. The apartment itself is in a great location; it was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. We would definitely recommend this to any friends visiting Dubrovnik. Thank you for your hospitality. Lauren, August 2010

"We had a fantastic time in Dubrovnik. We loved the Hideaway apartment . What made it so special for us was the location. We were slightly disappointed that our first choice apartment in the old town wasn't available, but upon arrival soon became aware how lucky we were to be away from the chaotic old town, yet within very easy reach. The view from the sitting room window was also superb. It was clean and comfortable. As tourists we would have preferred the décor to have been little more traditional but we knew what we were booking. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the apartment and your company to our friends and family. We will hopefully join you again in the future". Peter & Mhairi, August 2010

"The MirO apartment was perfect!! A small studio with a queen bed separated by a sliding glass door, but it was all that was needed and had all modern amenities. It was very clean and comfortable, we were on the top floor with an amazing view of the sea and an old fort, and the location could not be beat. It is right outside Pile Gate to the Old City, so we had easy access to great meals and the best attractions, but away from the noise on a very quiet block when it was time to sleep. Also, it was just a block away from the main bus stop, and a short walk to boat trips to beautiful island getaways and to rental cars. However, the best part about the apartment was the management company run by Isabelle and Viktor. Isabelle made all of the arrangements in advance by email and was incredibly responsive and helpful. Viktor, who group in Dubrovnik, worked out of the building next door during the mornings, and would spend fifteen minutes with us every morning giving us suggestions for day trips, highlighting maps and telling us the best places to eat and things to do. All of his advice was spot on, and as a result we truly felt like locals and had our own insider tour guide. They are the nicest couple and would probably become our good friends if we didn't live so far away in New York. We only wish we could reserve Viktor for every vacation we ever take!!" Trip advisor review, August 2010

"We really enjoyed our holiday in Dubrovnik. We were collected at the airport in a clean, air conditioned Mercedes and our driver gave us some very helpful tips of where to go and what to do on the drive to the city. The Seville apartment was easy to find and very well located in the old town. The facilities in the apartment were excellent and it was clean and modern. We really enjoyed our stay in Dubrovnik with Butterfly Services and would not hesitate in recommending them and their apartments to friends, family or any one else visiting Dubrovnik. When we return we shall definitely use them again. Thanks! "Huw, August 2010

"I am afraid I can't give you any suggestions on ways you can improve your services, everything was really quite excellent. The standard of the Om apartment was better than any apartment I can remember, the girls loved the decor, and it was certainly very clean. Your communication throughout was very good, perhaps the apartment was a little difficult to find the first time but that is a small thing. Your suggestions on places to go were great and thank you again for finding me an optician at short notice. I would be very happy to recommend you to friends visiting Dubrovnik. Graham & Jo, August 2010

"We had a lovely time, really enjoyed it, and the Divine I apartment was lovely. The transfer was great; both drivers were really professional and very friendly. Information etc was fantastic, and it was lovely to be greeted and picked up by Victor. We did think it was fantastic and would recommend it to anyone". Sarah, August 2010

"We did have a wonderful time thanks – the Bougainvilliers apartment and setting were lovely and Dubrovnik is very beautiful. The arrangements all ran very smoothly and efficiently and it was nice to meet Victor – you were both very helpful. Hoping to be back in Dubrovnik one day". Janice & Caroline, August 2010

"We just want to thank you for everything. We had a nice stay at the Divine studio . Too short…You are so friendly. We will see you soon!" Esther and Roberto, August 2010

"The Divine studio apartment was nice and clean. The beds were a little hard to sleep on but overall we were pleased with the apartment and the amenities. Internet and satellite TV were a bonus. The taxi we arranged through Victor was on time and waiting for us at the airport. The comfort of the vehicle was really good. The information we received was very helpful. One recommendation is to have a basic map of the surrounding area indicating basic amenities like supermarkets and restaurants. All of this info was in the book but it would be helpful to have a map to visually identify. Overall we were very pleased with your services and our stay in Dubrovnik. I would definitely recommend you if the opportunity arises. Hvala vam puno i nadamo se da ce mo opet doci u Dubrovnik ". Lazar, August 2010

"Isabelle and Viktor, Thank you for a wonderful stay in Dubrovnik! The Secrets III apartment was well equipped, clean, and perfectly located off the Stradun. Our transfers to and from the airport were on time and friendly. It was wonderful booking with you and the recommendations for dinner and sightseeing were perfect. Viktor was a real trooper for carrying our heavy bags up all those stairs!!! I will definitely recommend Butterfly Services to friends and family. Thanks!" Kate, August 2010

" The Divine I apartment was very nice. May be the terrace could be improved for the kids but everything was fine. Thank you" Jordi, August 2010

"We had a great holiday in Dubrovnik and arrived home safe and sound and straight back to work.. The Divine III apartment was great. Its location was ideal, particularly given the lack of steps compared to other parts of the Old Town, and the fact that it was at the rear of the building you never heard any noise from the busy street below especially with the two restaurants. The decor and facilities were all that you really needed and the beds were very comfortable. The transfers were great, punctual and very comfortable. The information you provided was very full and very informative, several of the apartments we have stayed in previously in other cities provided no information at all. The services you provided overall were excellent and we will certainly recommend you to friends, relatives and work colleagues who intend visiting Dubrovnik". Many thanks. Amanda, August 2010

"We had a great and pleasant stay at the Miro studio apartments , and I wrote reviews (in TripAdvisor) to express our happiness about our stay. If we were to be back to Dubrovnik, we would stay, without doubt, at the Miro studio apartments". Rifat, August 2010

"Dear Isabelle & Victor. Thank you for making our stay in Dubrovnik such a pleasant one. We were generally very happy with the Bougainvilliers apartment - The transfer was very good - very well organised. Information received - very good. It was very reassuring to be able to talk to you during the booking process. Overall we had a great time - This has been a very enjoyable holiday and one we will recommend to others. Many thanks to you both. We look forward to seeing you again some time in the future! Lewis, August 2010

« We had a great week at the Bougainvilliers . The villa was clean and bright and just right for our needs. We felt the kitchen could have been a little better equipped, but no complaint really. Upon arrival we were very glad that Viktor helped us with the suitcases (and upon departure too). He was very kind and helpful. It was a shame that we weren't aware that you don't need a taxi in Dubrovnik, as we lost some money that way. Our transfer to Split was very tiring as there didn't seem to be air conditioning on the coach. But we absolutely loved Dubrovnik and the villa was perfect for our family.I am looking forward to returning one day and am interested in your other properties. Many thanks. » Jacqui, August 2010

"We had a wonderful holiday. You have a beautiful country and the city of Dubrovnik is amazing. With regard to the apartment everything was perfect. The location was perfect for access to the City and we found the apartment to be extremely clean and comfortable. The landlady herself was very nice and helpful in pointing out amenities like supermarket, restaurants etc. We would recommend your company and especially The Romeo Apartment to any parties travelling to Dubrovnik in the future. Sharon, August 2010

"We all found the Secrets II apartment amazing, we were thrilled with it. We did all LOVE our stay in the beautiful Dubrovnik and we have all said that we would visit again! I will also recommend others to visit, and definitely recommend yourself when they look for accommodation! Many, many thanks. Alex, August 2010

" All I can say was I was happy with everything, transfers made life easier although more than local taxi, the Paloma room was exactly what it was advertised at, I was impressed my shower was powerful and stayed warm, Michelle's went cold within 5 mins. The information and emails you provided prior to travel were excellent. I would certainly recommend Butterfly services to anyone and will/would use them again if am coming back to Dubrovnik. All the best and many thanks again. Gavin, August 2010

"Dear Victor & Isabelle. We had a wonderful week. The Citrus bay apartment was great, the transfer taxi punctual and the information you kindly provided very helpful. It was particularly welcoming to be met by all three of you and made for a very friendly situation. One suggestion I could make would be to have an optional welcome pack of a few basics e.g. milk/water/bread /butter/tea/cheese to be paid for at the same time as the balance of the rental. This might be helpful for people arriving after the shops have shut. But a wonderful apartment and one we would recommend to friends. Richard & Frances, August 2010

"We were very satisfied by the Secrets III apartment which was very comfortable and clean and very well equipped and quiet. We really enjoy the situation, in the heart of Dubrovnik old city. Concerning the transfer, it was perfect, right on time and well organised. Globally, were good service and organisation. We enjoyed our stay in this apartment and for sure we will recommend it to our friends visiting Dubrovnik. Thank you for everything. Hermine, August 2010

"We enjoyed then Divine I apartment very much, it was comfortable and an excellent location. Apart from a boiled egg for breakfast we never cooked as there are so many restaurants on the doorstep. We sat on the patio a lot early in the morning and in the evening when it was cooler. I would happily recommend the apartment to anybody who was hoping to stay in Dubrovnik. We had a fantastic holiday". John, August 2010

« Nous avons passé un moment inoubliable à Dubrovnik! Et cela, sûrement, grâce à l'accueil si charmant de Viktor qui nous a gentiment présenté sa ville et donné des informations très précieuses. Nous nous sommes sentis vraiment 'chez nous' a Secret IV ! Très bien situé, très agréable, propre et sobrement décoré... à notre image! Viktor nous a fait visiter et expliquer le fonctionnement de l'appartement. Nous avons été dans les différents bars et restaurants conseillés et les avons tous apprécié. Nous avons emprunté la petite route qui longe la mer pour notre excursion aux bouches de Kotor: merci pour le conseil, c'était magnifique avec le coucher du soleil en revenant! Merci beaucoup à tous les deux! Nous espérons revenir à Dubrovnik........Clémence, Août 2010

"Dear Isabelle & Viktor, thank you both very much for your help, both before our visit to Dubrovnik and during our stay. Your help, advice & assistance was greatly appreciated. The Divine apartment was spotlessly clean and met all of our requirements perfectly. We loved the locality of the apartment and the air conditioning was a welcome relief for us! We found all of the information you supplied incredibly helpful - both before our visit and Viktor was very kind to spend some time on our arrival with suggestions of restaurants, day trips etc. - Having the transfer on arrival was very helpful and worked perfectly to then meet Viktor at the Pile Gate to be shown the apartment. I couldn't fault any of your service and I would certainly recommend you to any friends or family that intend to visit Dubrovnik. I found it very helpful to be able to contact you directly and you always replied to emails and texts which was great". Eve, August 2010

"I had a great time and made it home safe and sound. I cannot fault the service which I received and the Divine studio apartment was perfect. I appreciated being escorted to the apartment but perhaps the client should be told of the short walk from the Gate to the Old Town. I personally had no problem but it might be a good idea to warn the clients that the taxi does not enter the Old Town. Once again thank you". Mary, August 2010

" Nos vacances sont hélas terminées, mais nous tenions à vous remercier. Notre séjour a été parfait, l'appartement Green nest très agréable et l'envie très forte de revenir dans ce très beau pays.Nous souhaitons le faire découvrir à notre famille et nos amis, pourvu qu'il ne change pas. Encore merci pour votre aide. Pierre et Nicole, Aout 2010 "Thank you again for all your help with arranging for the stay at the Symphony Apartment ! Overall we thought the apartment was excellent and it exceeded our expectations. We wanted to stay in the Old City, which the apartment is in, and the location gave us immediate access to all of the nearby shops, restaurants and sights. The apartment was extremely clean and comfortable, with all of the amenities of home. The décor was very tasteful and modern and it was obvious that someone put a lot of time and thought into its appearance. Access to the internet was an added plus that we did not expect but Butterfly/Isabelle did arrange for us to be met at the Pile gate so that we would have no difficulty finding the apartment. I cannot remember his name, but the gentleman that met us was quite courteous and pleasant and very helpful. Isabelle was very helpful with finding out information about ferry and bus schedules. She even went so far as to call the ferry terminal to get me even more information than I had originally requested. Information received was top notch both in terms of quality as well as how quickly we received it. The website is quite informative and easy to navigate. The information package and map that accompanied the reservation confirmation was very thorough and we used it often during our stay. Everything provided in terms of information exceeded our expectations. Service level is the most important quality of a good stay, and I have to say that Isabelle's service was outstanding at every step. Prompt, eager to assist, friendly and reliable. I believe that if more people who intend to visit Dubrovnik knew about her and Butterfly they would look no further. Thank you very much for a wonderful visit Joe, July 2010

" Miro Studio Apartments are literally one minute walk away from the entrance of the Pile gate of Dubrovnik. The apartments are also just nearby the sea side, there is only one building in between the sea and the Miro. The area and the city overall is very safe. Viktor and Isabella managing the apartments are extremely nice, friendly, and helpful to make your stay pleasant. They will also give you hints as to how to better enjoy Dubrovnik. Regarding the apartments: On a very quiet small street. The pics posted are completely correct. The apt offers a very comfortable queen bed, nice clean bathroom and toilets, satellite TV + internet, etc". Trip advisor review, July 2010 "Staffs are very friendly and helpful. Especially we appreciate that they arranged the room in the 1st floor (in European way) since we have a small kid. Restaurants they recommended were good too. The MirO studio was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The kitchenette was useful enough to cook our breakfast and dinner which saved our money a lot. Above all, it is incredible that you have only a minute walk from the old city". Trip advisor review, July 2010

" Miro Studio : Perfect apartment in a very peaceful yet accesable location. Just steps from the Pile Gate of the old town and the sea. Very clean and comfortable with great staff. We were on the bottom floor, would perhaps have preferred an upper floor but there was no noise from apartments above. Everything was within walking distance, Walk the walls early morning or evening to avoid the cruise ship crowds, The Buza bar in the city walls is a must for a pre-dinner drink. No frills but the view is to die for. Also try the restaurant on the harbour on the left as you look to sea, always a queue but worth the wait for good honest seafood at a good price. We enjoyed this more then the very exclusive and expensive Nautika restaurant.. To avoid the heat and cruise ship crowds take a boat trip to Lokrum Island for a cool shady time with a good book. The Troubador bar with its live music is a good evening entertainment. Very hot while we were there in mid July, never below 32 degrees. I think a good time to visit would be May and September. A stunning place which is as yet relatively unspoilt". Trip advisor review, July 2010

"We are very satisfied with the stay at the Om apartment , your service and Dubrovnik in all. About the apartment: Very good, almost perfect. We mist some more cups, glasses, scissor at the kitchen, and curtain in front of the shower. Transfer: Very good, no further comments. Information: Very good and informative. We tested several of the restaurants recommended, and we were very satisfied. Your service: Very helpful and good. We have no problem recommend the Om to our friends in Norway. Thanks!" Arne & Anne-Bente, July 2010

"Friendly staff who would do anything to please. Modern, stylish apartments with aircon, tv/dvd etc kitchenette with fridge. Everything very new, high quality and comfort. Superb value for money and in an excellent location, 1 minute walk from the old town (via pile gate). Viktor and Isabelle arranged everything, nothing was too much trouble. The apartment was better quality than many 4* international hotels i have stayed in. My fiance (we got engaged here) and I would highly recommend the MirO apartments . Best holiday we have ever had, looking forward to returning". Trip advisor review, July 2010

"We had a great time thank you. The Bougainvilliers apartment was excellently located, clean and comfortable and suited us well. The booking procedure was smooth and everything happened, airport pick up, meeting at the apartment etc in a professional and well-handled manner. We took up most of Viktor's restaurant and activities advice (other than the Elafiti Islands, which we will do next time). Dubrovnik was an excellent host and we will definitely visit Croatia and the region again. Thanks," Phil. July 2010

"It's quite short as all was very good (Divine III , information etc…). Gilles, July 2010

"We recently stayed at the Miro Studio Apartments with our 1.5 year old child. As stated, the location is right off the Pile Gate, which is perfect for viewing the old town. The hotel setup a transfer from the airport to the hotel for us which was night since we were arriving after hours. As stated, the location is perfect, the rooms are great/spacious/clean, and you have a TV with a dish that has access to channels from all over Europe. The room is climate controlled which is great for warm summer months. As also noted, the people who run the apartments couldn't be friendlier. Viktor brought my son and I in to meet his wife and daughter...and his little girl shared her animal crackers with my 1.5 year old. You don't get this in a corporate hotel. They also setup a daytrip for us, and Maria actually helped translate some documents from my great great grandparents who came to the US from Croatia. They also provided an infant cot for my son. Free WIFI was also available, and we had no problems with it on the top floor. A fridge and stove were a nice tough as well. this was one of the best hotel experiences I've ever had though. Stay here and you won't regret it." Trip advisor review, July 2010

"Miro is a special little place in a very hectic area just outside the gates of the old town Dubrovnik. The apartments are very modern and provide you with a touch of luxury when travelling. The apartments have kitchenettes so that is a huge bonus if on a budget. The location is amazing. You are 200m from the old town yet it is off the beaten track so it's very quiet. And there is private cove 50m from your door that seems to be off the mainstream tourists radar. Viktor and Isabelle make you feel at home and go well beyond what is expected of hosts to guide you through your time in Dubrovnik. The old town can be overwhelming and they helped us with suggestions on how to work around the everyday tourist traps. It was a real treat staying at Miro !" Trip advisor review, July 2010

"Thank you so much, we had such a great stay in The Secrets IV apartment and will definitely be back. Thanks too for all your advice and recommendations. We found the apartment exactly as advertised and were very happy staying so centrally. It was spotless and very comfortable. We both felt very well looked after. Everything went to plan, we organised a meeting spot on arrival and Victor met us with a big smile and lots of valuable information on where to eat & drink, how to avoid the mass of tourists and various day trips (most of which we actually did). We would happily book through Butterfly again and will be happy to recommend to our friends and family. We can be very fussy but had no problems on this trip and are looking forward to returning. It sounds like you have properties that are suitable for our parents so we will let them know! Keep in touch and again thank you kindly, we had a super holiday but sadly it was too short and we appreciate how nice you were". Amicalement/ Sve Najbolje HVALA!" Selina & Robert, July 2010

« Laurent et moi avons passé une excellente semaine. La ville et ses environs nous ont beaucoup plu. Le studio MirO était parfait, bien situé tout en étant calme et fonctionnel. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié également l'équipe d'accueil dont Viktor, souriant et pro à la fois. Nous pensions, Laurent et moi, revenir peut-être l'an prochain lors d'un grand pont, en mai par exemple, ou en juin. A bientôt. Cordialement ». Catherine, July 2010

"We had a wonderful time in Dubrovnik, and couldn't have chosen a better apartment - so close to the Old City, and with the added bonus of a pool! Thanks to you both for helping us with our stay - Victor's welcome was warm and most informative! His advice was very good - especially about avoiding the busy periods in town. The Bougainvilliers apartment was excellent - spacious, and with everything that we needed. We were very comfortable. The air conditioning was very useful, though we didn't have to run it too much. Once again, thanks for allowing us to stay in your lovely city! The seafood was delicious, and the ambience superb - it was a special place for our daughter to get married, and we had a memorable time! Best of luck in the future - we will recommend you and the city to all of our friends!" Paul, July 2010

"We enjoyed our stay at the Coconut immensely. The amazing views of the harbour, combined with the outdoor living facilities and our wonderful hosts Luca and Jasna made our holiday one to remember. The roomy air conditioned villa was a great place to relax and enjoy the superb views, watch the 50 inch plasma TV or just to chill out. We would highly recommend the Coconut for anyone looking top quality accommodation in an amazing holiday destination." Ewan and Keriata, July 2010

"Our stay in apartment Divine lll was extremely pleasant. The location of the apartment was absolutely superb and the apartment itself was clean tidy well equipped and exactly as described. The greeting we received from Victor was excellent and he pointed us to local useful amenities and facilities in a friendly and warm manner. We would highly recommend the apt to anyone and would be glad to use it again on a return trip to Dubrovnik. Thank you". Paul and Fiona, July 2010

"We all had a fantastic time in Dubrovnik - you live in a fantastic city. We travel as a family two or three times a year and our experience with you was the best so far. The Citrus bay accommodation was comfortable and very clean with everything we could have wished for, but it was the service you provided which made the difference between other holidays we have had. Your friendly and personal touch was greatly appreciated and your recommendations were spot on - we ate in all the restaurants you recommended and weren't disappointed. Transport to and from the apartment was faultless - even though we got slightly lost on the way to the villa (it made us realise we would never have found it on our own). Thank you for a fantastic holiday - we will definitely come to Croatia again". Bill and family, July 2010

"We had a fantastic time in Dubrovnik and we have been really impressed with your services as well as Ivor's. Therefore we have already recommended your services to our friends so they may contact you in the future. The Symphony apartment was very good and we were very happy with the apartment. Ivor was a fantastic owner and he was very helpful and informative all the time. We felt very safe and comfortable at the apartment during our stay. Your information pack was excellent. We followed your instruction quite often and as a result. We always ended up with nice restaurants/beaches/ etc.. We particularly liked a restaurant (Mediterranean tapas)! They are soooooooooo good! I like your website too - simple, easy to use and informative with good photos. As both of us have been spoilt with Japanese customer services (+ have been let down by so many times in overseas), we are very pleased to find you and your services! It's so rare to see the company like you in overseas to take care of customer services seriously. We may wish to go to Split in the future and would be interested in your services if you have any info. Finally we would like to thank you for your efficient and friendly services towards our holiday and wish you a great success on your future!" Mihoko and Roy, July 2010

"We can't speak highly enough of the support provided by Isabelle, Viktor and their staff in the lead up to and during our first visit to Dubrovnik. From our first email enquiry, responses were always prompt and caring - we were left in no doubt that we were valued as clients. The apartment was less than 200m from the entrance to the old city, yet in a very peaceful location (with very few steps!), with all the conveniences we were after. It was fresh and clean, well-appointed and came with an unexpected bonus of complimentary broadband internet access. Our airport transfer was arranged for us and Viktor met us on arrival, escorted us to our room and provided us with ideas for best utilising our time in the town. This support extended throughout our stay, which was punctuated by a week-long sailing trip and a brief hospitalisation, during which we had several queries and requests. There's nothing like friendly support when you're away from home, especially when things go a little wrong, and we certainly experienced that with the staff at Miro Apartments . In our eyes, they went over and above the call of duty – nothing was too much trouble". Trip advisor review, July 2010

"Our villa Le Jardin des Citronniers was really great. Everything was in the same way it was illustrated and described on your website, even better! The house was very lovely and excellently decorated! We did not felt us like in the hotel but like at our own home. The owners of our villa were very kind and met us themselves and brought us to the airport. Moreover, they tried to organize our free time during our last day in Cavtat, showed us Cavtat surroundings: Gruda, Molunat and so on. We also visited their house and were really lucky to meet such nice people during our vacation. As I have already mentioned, the description of the house suited the reality. So, we were not frustrated but, on the contrary, positively impressed! Your service is great! We are really thankful to you, that you found out extra for us this house in Cavtat! We enjoyed our summer holidays a lot and have regretted that we came only for two weeks, but maybe we will make up longer next year." Benazir, July 2010

"Excellent stay at Symphony apartment . Perfect location, excellent facilities, comfort and service!! Jose & Maria, July 2010

"We had a really great holiday in Dubrovnik & we were really impressed with the apartment. The location was perfect & facilities were exactly what we needed. The decor was tasteful & simple & the apartment was obviously kept clean & in a good condition. The transfers worked perfectly & it was really good to know that we didn't have to worry about bothering with taxis - especially as there were 6 of us. All the information we received both before we arrived & when we checked in was very helpful. Steve did mention that he didn't think the map on your website did the apartment justice in terms of location. It seems to show the apartment as being a bit further out. It was only when he checked on google map that he realised how close to the old town it was. Service in general was very good & it was nice to arrive to friendly faces & a warm welcome (not to mention help with the luggage up all those steps). We would definitely come back to Croatia & would recommend Dubrovnik as a great place to visit - either for a week holiday like we did or for a long weekend. If anyone we know is planning to visit Dubrovnik we'd be more than happy to recommend Bougainvilliers to them. Thank you for helping to make our holiday so memorable!" Claire, July 2010

"We are very grateful to you & Viktor. We had terrific time in Cavtat. We liked everything: Le Jardin des Citronniers , sea, food. I told everybody about you & villa that you found for us. It was really great time. The owner of our villa was very kind. They brought us to Konavle & their family house. We were very happy to meet you again. Thank you very much that despite that you were very busy you found time for us. I hope that one day you will come to Moscow & St. Petersburg". Nodira, July 2010

"Hope you're getting a break from the hot weather! Briony and I really enjoyed our apartment – Divine III - in Dubrovnik. The location was great - so central and accessible - and the apartment very clean and comfortable. The view from the windows overlooking the vines was wonderful to look at when eating our breakfast each morning. When the crowds got too much for us, it was so easy for us to have a break by returning to "our" apartment! The booking process was very straight forward and easy to follow. We especially appreciated the personal phone call to get the credit card details, the quick follow up to organise our pick up from the airport and Viktor meeting us and providing us with a map and information about Dubrovnik. Thank you for helping us have a very enjoyable, stress free stay in Dubrovnik. We will be recommending you to any family and friends that plan to stay in Dubrovnik". Kathy and Briony, July 2010

"We all immensely enjoyed our holiday in Dubrovnik, the accommodation you provided us with was extremely spacious, clean and Viktor was very welcoming on our arrival. The beds were very comfortable, and the pool, bathrooms and kitchen were immaculate. The information given on the website was very clear and useful and our expectations were met when we arrived, the pictures of the villa were especially helpful in getting across the size and layout of the villa. The booking procedure was very fast and both Isabella and Viktor were extremely good at keeping in contact up until we arrived in Dubrovnik. The tourist information Viktor gave us on the first day there was most helpful and enlightening, we would not have found many of the supermarkets without Viktor's help. The folder in the Bougainvilliers villa for good restaurants was also an extreme help to those that are unfamiliar with Dubrovnik. Overall we had an amazing time and would recommend booking a villa or apartment with Viktor and Isabelle to anyone considering a trip to Dubrovnik. Thank you very much for your attention to detail and ensuring we had a wonderful trip! Many thanks again". Alexandra, June 2010

"Thank you for all your help with our trip to Dubrovnik. We had a lovely time in Dubrovnik and really enjoyed our stay at Au 8 House . We were very pleased with the apartment which was clean, tidy and modern and in a very good location. The transfer that you organised from the airport was also very good and punctual. Thanks again for all your help". Kate, July 2010

"You were friendly as could be and we had a great experience. The Divine I apartment was CLEAN and convenient. The only things were wished for were laundry detergent and candles for the patio. All was good! Thanks again!!" Amy, July 2010

"Please accept our thanks for providing us with a wonderful stay in Dubrovnik. The Divine studio great, and Viktor's advice and suggestions for where to go and what to do was perfect for us! Many thanks again». Steve and Joanna, July 2010

"We really liked it a lot in Dubrovnik and the apartment was so nice!! We appreciated a lot the WLAN access there. Hideaway I apartment was very clean, central, next to the sea, air conditioning (my friend from America appreciated this a lot. I think Americans in general). We had all information needed and got also some more with our reservation document. That was very nice! The booking procedure was easy and via internet very comfortable. The possibility to get catched by the airport was also very good and comfortable. Your Service was very good! When we had a question our contact person was always reachable and helped us. I can't mention an aspect so far which should be improved. To sum it up, we were completely satisfied!!!!" Miriam, July 2010

"We had a wonderful time in Croatia. I am just now returning to San Francisco. We were very pleased with our accommodations Symphony apartments and would recommend you all to family and friends that may visit in the future. The apartment was in a great location, exactly as described by the website. It was spacious, bright and airy. Information received (description on website, booking procedure, arrival information, tourist information) were excellent! Everyone was very accommodating and easily accessible and responsive if there was an issue. Great service! Easy to communicate and do business with. Thanks again!" Lindsay, June 2010

"We did indeed have a wonderful holiday and both of us loved Dubrovnik and wished we had more time there so we will be back. The service you provided to us was excellent both before and during our stay and was by far the best level of service we had whilst moving around in Croatia. In terms of the accommodation Divine studio was extremely well located for our needs, was spotlessly clean and it was comfortable and more than adequate. All the information we received from you was good and the folder of information in the apartment was well used by us. I shall definitely be using your services again and thank you and Victor for making our stay so enjoyable". Perveen, July 2010

"We enjoyed our time in Croatia and had a good journey home. We liked Dubrovnik very much and Citrus bay was a very good choice for our stay there. Citrus bay's near-by and peaceful location was perfect for our family and the transportation facilities were very good. The apartment was comfortable and clean, the kitchen well-equipped and especially the terrace was fantastic. The information and the services we got were sufficient and e.g. the hints of the nearby Italian restaurant and the island of Lokrum were very useful. We will be in touch if/when planning a trip to DBV next time". Jani, July 2010

"We had a great time in Dubrovnik, mostly thanks to the lovely apartment and Viktor's helpful hints! The Secret IV apartment was very clean, felt very new and comfortable and was in a great location. Viktor was extremely helpful at check-in and gave us a lot of helpful hints and tips, which proved invaluable. You were brilliant at making sure we had photos etc and the booking procedure was all very smooth. Your services in general were great. The little things are very nice touches, like leaving water in the fridge and nice teabags etc. As I say I have already recommended you and will continue to do so. Thanks again for having us. When we're next in town, we'll be in touch for somewhere to stay!» Lisa, July 2010

"It was a wonderful time in Croatia and the Thalassa apartment in Dubrovnik was stunning! We really had a positive surprise experience there! Everybody thought it was the nicest place we stayed in Croatia, so congratulations :o)Everything we needed was there and even the internet access was repaired directly by somebody, so we had everything we could wish for. The Information we received upon arrival were good and sufficient and the service excellent. Also the booking procedure was very good and we felt being taken care of very well. We would like to thank you for this nice part of our holidays and be sure; we will recommend you to our friends! Have a nice day and best regards - hopefully we will come to Dubrovnik once more, soon". Miriam, July 2010

"We really enjoyed Dubrovnik and the apartment. It was as good as the description, but when you see the apartment it is even better. Perfect view to the sea, mini market very close and spacious rooms. The beach is near too, good connections. And very peaceful neighbourhood. We only missed some more cutleries, like scissors, cheese "cutter" and more knifes. The transport was well organized and on time. Nice taxi driver who told us useful things on the way. We had a good holiday in Thalassa apartment and would be more than happy to recommend it to our friends or other people. I miss the view already now .Thank you for a nice stay!" Kirsi Jari Sini and Sonja, June 2010

"We had a lovely stay in Dubrovnik, It's a beautiful place. On our arrival the transfer was waiting and was very punctual, our driver was very polite and told us a bit about the city, Peter and Viktor were waiting as we arrived. The Hippocampe apartment was very clean and we were very happy with it. The location had a great views across the bay, but the stairs coming back from the beach were very tiring, we came home with nice toned legs, I used muscles i didn't know existed (ha ha). I would recommend to my friends to use your services, you have been very helpful and I would like to thank you for your kindness and it was nice of Viktor to come and meet us. I will certainly be returning in the near future". Karen, Kenny, Rebecca and Lauren, July 2010

"We found the information on the Butterfly services website excellent, the photos, the description (rooms, equipment, etc) and the location of the apartment were all very helpful. Your answers to our emails were friendly and gave us the information we required. The booking procedure was easy to follow. It was very helpful being able to book our transfer to and from the airport through you with Peter who was polite and friendly. We were also grateful that you welcomed us on arrival at the apartment and that you had bought some essentials for us (milk etc) to keep us going until we got to the supermarket. The information you gave us of the local area, buses to catch to the old town, restaurants to eat at and tours to go on was very useful. (We still think the meal we had at the Taj Mahal restaurant in the 'old town' was the nicest meal of our trip! The apartment was clean, comfortable and had all we needed. The views were excellent, and the location was convenient to the beach, bus stop etc (once you got used to the 120 steps up the hill which was good exercise!). The 2nd bedroom was abit hot and stuffy Having said this though, we left the apartment and Citrus Bay with the opinion that we had had a very relaxing, pleasant holiday, in a comfortable and clean apartment and met with very friendly and helpful people. We would have no hesitation in recommending Butterfly Services to our friends back in Melbourne. Now all we have to do is try to adjust to the cold wintery weather back here in Australia!" Debbie, June 2010

"Mon amie et moi tenons à vous remercier pour la qualité, la courtoisie et la rapidité du service de Butterfly services. Nous avons passé un séjour magnifique dans cette belle région du Sud de la Dalmatie. La situation de l'appartement est très bonne. Lapad est un quartier tranquille avec tout ce qu'il faut à proximité. Thalassa est un bel appartement, beaux meubles et lit confortable! Tout de bonne qualité. Propreté: Rien à redire! Super. Sur le site internet on ne se rend malheureusement pas compte à quel point l'appartement est grand avec plafonds hauts. Peut-être utilisé un appareil photo grand angle pour rendre cet appartement tel qu'il est: beau et attractif. Malgré le plan fourni par vos soins lors de la réservation, on s'est quand même trompé de route une ou deux fois le premier jour. On dira que le copilote n'était pas très concentré...Tout se trouve sur place et Ariana nos a tout de suite montré sur carte les points importants. Merci pour tout. Quand on reviendra dans la région on n'hésitera pas une seconde à repasser par Butterfly services. En attendant je vous souhaite une bonne continuation et un bel été à Dubrovnik. Pier-Luigi, June 2010

"We are home now and want you to know that we had such a lovely time and that we did many, if not all of the things Viktor suggested. Great sights, delicious food, and Divine studio is a very convenient place to stay! Thanks!" Toni & Jeff, June 2010

"The Om apartment was fantastic. Very clean, great location with good transport links to the old town. The pool was lovely; we especially liked the lights so we could go swimming at night! All of the information we received prior to our arrival was very helpful. The booking process was very easy, and all of my questions were answered in a friendly efficient manner. Viktor provided us with lots of really good information when we arrived, his suggestions really helped make our holiday so great. I would definitely recommend anyone to visit Dubrovnik, and I would certainly recommend this apartment". Nicky, June 2010

« Bonjour a vous deux- Ca m'a fait très plaisir de vous rencontrer et de passer du temps dans votre bel appartement Secret II a Dubrovnik! Nous l'avons trouvé très propre, bien meublé et tranquille. Le service était excellent - merci pour votre accueil. A très bientôt » Mark, June 2010

"We were very impressed with the Thalassa II apartment . Very modern and comfortable and very impressed with the cleanliness. Location was good and very accessible. Walking distance to the beach which was handy and also to the Valamar hotel where we were able to use the pool. The view from the apartment was lovely and we enjoyed sitting out on the balcony. The main large supermarket was a bit far though and needed to take taxi back with our shopping, but only had to do this once so wasn't too bad. Ariana was extremely friendly and met us when we arrived. She was very helpful and pleasant to deal with during our stay. The only problem we had was taking the buggy up and down the stairs in the heat! It would have been good to leave the buggy downstairs in a safe area rather than taking it up with us. Everything was spot on. Booking procedure was very efficient and easy, and Isabelle was very helpful and understanding particularly with advice and arranging items for our daughter. The apartment was actually better than we expected and better than it suggests on the website. All the information that was sent to us regarding arrival to Dubrovnik and tourist information was very helpful. We were very impressed with your services and you made the whole procedure before our visit and during our stay (with the help of both Isabelle and Ariana) very pleasant. We will definitely be recommending the apartment and your services to friends and family". Gita & Bally, June 2010

"Thank you so much for a lovely time at Divine III apartment . We really enjoyed our stay. You gave us a lot of information, helped us on our arrival and departure and made us feel very welcome. Thanks a lot for your help!" Claire, June 2010

« Je tenais absolument à vous remercier énormément pour toute l'assistance avant et pendant notre séjour à Dubrovnik...Le studio Aramis était parfait, les restaurants conseillés délicieux, et la visite à Mjlet était simplement merveilleuse, nous avons eu une journée inoubliable suivant vos conseils...Je conseillerai désormais votre agence à tous ceux qui me demanderont des conseils pour visiter cette ville magnifique !!!!Encore une fois, merci pour tout! » Valérie, June 2010

"MirO studios : well located and exceptionally quiet location - just outside Pile Gate - and having the benefit of being in close proximity to the varied and mixed offerings of the Old Town and, importantly, not be subject to the "hussle and bustle" of actually staying within the confines of the walled city itself. A four storied building; beautifully and tastefully renovated and maintained. Use of space is clever and maximes space to best advantage. My wife was particularly impressed with the standard of decor in the wet room and would have quite easily asked me to remove the red tiles and taken them home if that had been possible! Viktor was an attentive and informative host on all aspects of our week in Dubrovnik and I would have no hesitation in returning to this establishment again or, as I'm doing here, recommend same to others. I'd like to think I'm being balanced with this review as I team manage a group of Property Management auditors back in the UK and after years of practical experience you can readily spot poorly managed properties! As far as Dubrovnik itself is concerned it should be a "must " for all independent travellers!" Trip advisor review, June 2010

"Viktor you were wonderful, very helpful and friendly and full of excellent suggestions. We loved Villa Celeste and its location is excellent. Viktor was our highlight of the entire trip and it is difficult to be the best in a friendly country like Croatia. We will be back" Lambert, June 2010

"Dear Isabelle and Viktor. We would like to thank you for an amazing holiday. The Hideaway I apartment was in an amazing location - we loved where it was situated and will miss watching the lady fishing on the end of the pier to feed the 3 cats every evening!!! It was also wonderfully clean and tidy. We were very impressed with your professional service and can not thank you enough for the helpful tips and advice that you offered - it really helped to make our trip amazing! Such as buying our sandwiches from Skola then heading to Lokrum Island - then we found the dead sea water hole and were so grateful that you had suggested taking our lunch over! And we loved St Jacobs beach and would never have gone there if you had not recommended it. We met other tourists along the way who had not been given these little tips - so we felt very fortunate. Unfortunately we did not see all we wanted to so we will be back soon and will certainly recommend your apartments and exceptional service to any of our friends and family." Melanie, June 2010

"We have just returned home to Australia after a fantastic trip covering Croatia, Romania, Ukraine and Turkey. Our stay in Dubrovnik and the MirO Apartments was very enjoyable - especially with the kind help and advice provided by you both! Hopefully we will be able to visit again soon!" Bob and Marie, June 2010

"We stay a week at Secret I apartment . Location is excellent, ideal for touring Dubrovnik on the stradum with only stairs to the apartment. Transfer was standing waiting on us; give us information along the journey. Great car and nice to be driven around. The booking procedure etc was fantastic. Answered all our questions. Very helpful and friendly owners. They let us stay in the apartment a lot longer than we should have been. Also they let us stay in the apartment upstairs when it was raining on our last day instead of going out in the rain. Much appreciated. All in all, all the wedding party believe that we will be back this time next year. We showed a few people our apartment, so hopefully word will spread about this apartment". Lucille, June 2010

"We have a really lovely stay in Dubrovnik and the Divine I apartment was ideally situated for anyone wanting to be 'in the middle' of everything. The accommodation was great, as you will have noticed we did not use many of the kitchen aids as we prefer to eat out - but they were certainly clean, up to date and would be useful for anyone wishing to 'eat in' We were particularly impressed by your attentiveness both before and at the end of the holiday, the transfers were on time and very comfortable and you made sure we were not left waiting about - for which we would like to thank you. I would have no hesitation in recommending your apartments and service to our friends and family and are looking forward to showing them photographs of your beautiful city. Thank you again - and have a good, prosperous summer.". Rosalynne, June 2010

"We stayed at the Porthos apartment ; its location is EXCELLENT, within old town walls, right next to the cathedral. The location was magical. This truly made our experience in Dubrovnik memorable. Comfortable queen size bed, very clean room, bathroom and kitchen, laundry facilities available. The apartment description was accurate, and even better than what we expected in terms of location and comfort! Isabelle was wonderful, very pleasant to work with, gave us good information for buses/transportation. Thank you! We had a wonderful time in Dubrovnik and can't wait to come back!" Tim, June 2010

"I had a lovely stay at the Divine III apartment . Thank you very much. To be honest I can't think of anything to improve it was all wonderful and you were both very helpful. We'll be back!" Louise, June 2010

"We really loved The Hideaway I apartment! The apartment has plenty of room and makes you feel welcome. It's location just outside the old town wall near Pile Gate square is excellent. If we had any questions we could always contact you or Viktor. This was very helpful. We will certainly recommend this apartment and Butterfly Services to our friends and family! Again thank you for all your". Marlyne, June 2010

"We had a fantastic time in Dubrovnik! The Divine studio was perfect for what we wanted, and the location couldn't have been better. Viktor gave us some great tips and was really friendly and helpful on arrival (especially with restaurant recommendations!). We will absolutely recommend your apartment to other friends and family visiting Dubrovnik. Thanks again - we had a lovely time". Annie and Leo May 2010

"We had a lovely time in beautiful Dubrovnik. Everything was perfectly arranged from pick up at the airport until the drop off at departure. The driver was very nice and already gave tips about Dubrovnik. The welcome in the 'Om Apartment ' by Victor was fantastic. The house was beautiful, the baby bed was a high tech piece of furniture with lights and music in it :-), a lovely swimming pool, and a nice location. The total service of Butterfly Services was wonderful. The information on the website, the total booking procedure and all the information we received made our stay in Dubrovnik great! Thanks again for all your help, we will recommend you to our friends and hope to see you again in the future!" Eefje, June 2010

"Your service was invaluable especially your information about the area and the travel, tourism options. The Hortensia apartment location and cleanliness was perfect. And it was so modern too. I would recommend this apartment. Thank you!" Wing-Sze, May 2010

"This was my second trip to Dubrovnik and I was so thrilled to have booked at MirO Studio Apartments . It leaves the competition (Sobe and hotels) for dead. Advantages: excellent location one minute walk from the Pile Gate, modern, bright apartment, exceptionally clean, double-glazed windows and air-conditioning keeps you cool and the outside noise out, friendly and informative staff, good price. I would definitely recommend MirO to friends and family. I'll definitely be back!" Trip advisor, May 2010

"Stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of May. Met by Viktor from the transfer which was arranged with his wife and on arriving were given some good tips on how to best utilise our short time in Dubrovnik. Apartment has been cleverly designed to give a good impression of space and is very modern in style, spotlessly clean and had everything you need to self cater. Location is excellent in that it is very close to the entrance to the Old Town but also is close to a sheltered cove away from the hustle and bustle of Dubrovnik when the cruise tourists are in town! One word of advice, if you are not very fit choose a room on the ground floor as there are no lifts to the upper apartments. All enquiries with Viktor and Isabelle prior to arriving in Dubrovnik were handled very promptly and the transfers to and from the airport ran very smoothly and were reasonably priced. In summary, lovely apartments, very accommodating hosts, beautiful city and would highly recommend the Miro ". Trip advisor, May 2010

"Beautiful, clean apartment with daily maid-service. All the 'mod cons'. Perfectly located. Very friendly and extremely helpful staff". Trip advisor, May 2010

"It was a pleasure to meet you both and Charlotte. Thank you so much for meeting us in the pouring rain, and at short notice. We have nothing but praise for Butterfly Services - from our initial contact with you, right through to the time we left. The description on the internet was accurate, the booking procedure was simple and Viktor provided the best tourist info. The apartment Secret I was very clean. - we were very happy with it. The location is superb, it couldn't have been more central, and the fact that there were no steps to get to it was a bonus. It was well equipped and comfortably furnished. Once again, thanks for everything".Jackie & John, May 2010

"Thank you for a wonderful stay at the Om Apartment . We indeed had a great time in Dubrovnik and the apartment. The location, facilities, and apartment in generally were wonderful and exactly as represented on the website. All the transfers were prompt and professional along with the check in and check out procedures. We particularly appreciated the little extras of the juice, milk and fruit that was there when we arrived and your generous assistance in lending us the 100 Kuna until we could make it to a bank. We have absolutely no complaints at all and would be happy to recommend the apartment and your services to our friends and family. We particularly enjoyed the Yatch Club!!" Louise, Carl and Candice, May 2010

"We had a wonderful holiday, thank you very much. Regarding Villa Celeste , it was really lovely & couldn't be in a better location. I found the drivers very pleasant, especially the driver who did the airport transfers and Cillipi, he was extremely helpful but also very eager to pass on knowledge about the area which was really interesting. As for your services in relation to the booking, details etc, I couldn't fault them. Once we got to Dubrovnik we got a great service, it really was very personable & homely, which added to our enjoyment of the holiday. We wouldn't hesitate to use your services again. Many thanks". Marie May 2010

"Thank you very very much for an excellent holiday. You organised things superbly, and we really had a very good holiday. We were very pleased we chose an apartment, rather than stay in a hotel outside the town. Three days, we did things in the town, went back and made some lunch, had a quiet drink and read on the terrace, and attacked sight-seeing again in the afternoon. We were so pleased we didn't have to join the hordes all day. Dubrovnik and night was a delight - plenty of places to eat and we did two concerts as well. Apartment especially appreciated the two mornings it was raining - we could just have a lazy time and still be part of everything. Location excellent couldn't have been better. We were just two friends who wanted separate rooms, so we left the sofa bed up all the time - there was plenty of room. We didn't use the dishwasher or washing machine at all, nor the oven. Beds were very comfortable with plenty of pillows. Bathroom and shower were excellent, with plenty of hot water. We specially booked the Divine apartment because of the terrace. Overall, good value for money and we'd stay again. Information received was excellent. Your services were excellent. We hadn't been before, and were very relieved to see our taxi-driver waiting for us, and Viktor waiting - he even carried our suitcases up for us. Very smooth, arriving and leaving, and very reassuring that, if we we were affected by volcanic ash, we at least had friends to help in Dubrovnik. Many thanks for all your help - I'm keen to bring my husband another year and do Dubrovnik - Korcula and Hvar. I'll certainly contact you for help". Sue, May 2010

"Just wanted to say a huge thank you for your hospitality over the weekend at the Hideaway I Apartment. I hope to see you again in September. Both myself and Cianan really appreciate your time and assistance in letting us view Greco villa. It is very reassuring now that we have seen it and the owner is a lovely person. I think closer to the time we would take her suggestion on the flowers as it would be nice for the photographs on the morning of our wedding. We will be back in touch with over the next couple of months just to arrange transfer details. Aine, May 2010

"We enjoyed our stay in Dubrovnik very much. We liked the Athos studio in every respect and were very content with the flexible booking procedure and the service in general. Thank you!" Anne May 2010

"I just wanted to write you a short note to say that we loved our stay in Dubrovnik, everything worked out very smoothly, and the apartment Symphony I was perfect for what we were looking for. Thank you for being so helpful, I will definitely recommend you to any friends planning a trip to Croatia!" Dominique May 2010

"MirO is the Perfect place for some happy days in Dubrovnik. Nice and cosy apartments furnished with style and taste. Victor is helping in perfect English with his hints to discover the best places in Dubrovnik. Brilliant location: so close to the city wall and the sea, but still very calm. Again: Thank you very much!" Martina May 2010

"We really enjoyed our time in Dubrovnik and our stay at Divine I apartment . Your assistance pre arrivals, on arrival and during our stay were greatly appreciated. Thanks again for the kindness and assistance you provided us". Mike & Bev, April 2010

"We really enjoyed our stay in Dubrovnik and would like to thank you for being such welcoming hosts. We think the design of the apartment was absolutely fantastic and would have no hesitation in recommending the MirO apartments to anyone who would like to stay in Dubrovnik. Many thanks!" Mike & Sharon April 2010

"Citrus bay location was ideal for us, bus into the city was really easy but we had the local facilities too, once we had realised about the short cut that made the steps easy and James and Chloe had no problems with them. The apartment was really very clean and very comfortable, ideal for what we wanted. Information received - again all excellent, really good to meet at the hotel as we had a map but we wouldn't have followed the road I think, the information on the website were exactly reflective of what the apartment was. I will send out a recommendation on our local parents group. Thanks for all your help." Clare May 2010

"Dear Isabelle and Viktor. The return journey was good, just a shame to leave such a lovely place to return to a cold Scotland. Everything about the Divine IIII apartment and booking process was excellent. We constantly commented on how great it was to stay in the Old Town as we were so close to everything compared to if we stayed in a hotel. The information that Viktor told us on the way to the apartment was great, I think the Taj Mahal was the best meal that I had all week. I will definitely recommend Butterfly Services to any friends or family going to Croatia. Thank you" Mary, May 2010

"Just to say I had a lovely time in Dubrovnik. The MirO apartment was stylish and comfortable, in a superb location and delightfully peaceful. I would also like to add that with only one exception ( the cashier in the supermarket!) all the tour guides, waiting staff, taxi drivers etc were brilliantly helpful and cheerful. I particularly enjoyed the restaurant in the tiny harbour near the apartment (Orhan?) and the bar overlooking the sea just outside the city walls (Buža 2?). And thank you to Victor for his suggestions of what to do and where to go.» Judith, April 2010

"My stay was very pleasant and I loved Dubrovnik. Thanks to you and Viktor for lovely accommodation Divine studio- . I hope to stay with you again!" Tom April 2010

"We enjoyed our stay in Dubrovnik and the Secret I apartment very much. Thanks for your trouble of making us feel at home. And thanks for the flowers.... The welcome and pick up were very nice, your suggestions for trips and eating well picked. I must admit we were lazy and did not explore a lot....Dubrovnik is lovely; It was really lovely to go out boating. We would definitely recommend you to friends". Marinus & Dagmar, April 2010

"Thank you Isabelle - you are very efficient and it gives us great comfort, booking from such a distance, to know that you're "on the ball"! Look forward to meeting you in July. Kind regards, Graham "Thanks again Viktor for making us so welcome during our recent stay at MirO and for all your tips. I will definitely be re-visiting Croatia at some stage and I will be recommending your apartments to anyone thinking of visiting Dubrovnik. Take care". Paddy, April 2010

"We've just returned from a whirlwind five day visit to Dubrovnik. Having extensively researched potential accommodation, we settled upon one of the MirO apartments . For us, location and modernity were key factors. Hotel options close to Dubrovnik's old town are very limited and we wanted to avoid wasting time having to journey in and out every day. Hotels are also expensive and don't always offer the degree of independence and autonomy which we were seeking. Of course, one never knows whether experiences logged by fellow travellers and the descriptions available on websites will actually match up to what one finds on arrival. However, in this case everything was exactly as we had been led to believe, topped only by the charm, hospitality and knowledge of Viktor and Isabelle. The apartments are located in the perfect position, a quiet little street only a minute or so's walk from one of the main access points to the old town, the Pile Gate. In fact they are a stone's throw from a charming little cove which, many many years back, served as the original old port for the town. There is a delightful restaurant here and a mini market and bakery just around the corner. There are a couple of other restaurants nearby but the location of the apartment's means that popping back into the old town to choose from scores of alternatives is a breeze" Trip advisor review, April 2010

"The MirO apartments have been ingeniously planned, offering a very comfortable double bed (queen size), modern furnishings, a sitting area with satellite TV and DVD player, a fridge, cooker, microwave, a bathroom area with shower and a separate toilet. There is also air conditioning which I'm sure would be most welcome in the summer months. A number of sliding frosted glass screens or doors can be rolled back and forth to section off the bed area. It's all very clever, not large but more than adequate for a short stay whilst exploring the area. MirO is about clean, contemporary, practical and well resourced not about plush, chintzy or faded glory! There is a tardis like quality, space having been utilised to amazing effect. In truth, what one trades in by way of space is more than made up for by the location, the modernity and the genuine care and concern of the owners to make sure that your stay is as comfortable and worthwhile as possible. This was our first visit to this part of the world and the trip exceeded our expectations. The walled city is fantastic, there are nearby islands to explore and the Adriatic is crystal clear and an azure blue in places. We were welcomed everywhere we went. Viktor has a number of bargain tips. Caring, very knowledgeable but unobtrusive and only there to answer your queries if you chose to sound him out. A delightful host of a delightful apartment in a delightful location". Trip advisor review, April 2010

"We spent Easter in Dubrovnik. The city was gorgeous, the weather glorious and the location of the MirO apartment absolutely perfect. It was clean, new appliances and furniture (very comfortable bed) and trendy/urban deco. We even got traditional Croatian cookies and cakes in the morning". Trip advisor review, April 2010

"We really did enjoy our time at Thalassa and it was an added bonus being able to meet up with you both. We found the accommodation excellent and exactly as you detailed it. For visitors without cars, the location was ideal, being so close to the local buses and supermarket. The facilities were very comprehensive and the back-up from the proprietors was very professional. We were most impressed with the quality of all the fittings and the cleanliness was brilliant. We were most impressed with the constant supply of fresh washing up liquid, soap, dishwasher tablets and the endless supply of towels! We felt very safe and secure there and also feel that as the accommodation is so warm it could so easily be promoted for year round holidays. We also felt that for self-catering, Dubrovnik is far less expensive than the € zone and the plentiful supply and quality of local fruit, vegetables and general groceries means that holiday costs are significantly more attractive! The info in the Tourist Offices is generally free and very good. We always do as much research as possible on new destinations before we set off and were so fortunate in that you filled in the gaps in our knowledge by giving us very detailed info on steps, distances from shops and a multitude of info on the bus services which meant that we arrived fully briefed - thanks again for this! To summarise, we had a SUPER time and really enjoyed the apartment. You run a very professional, comprehensive and knowledgeable organisation and we have really benefited from". Clyde & Hazel, February 2010

"Nous avons été très heureux de notre séjour à Dubrovnik et surtout d'avoir eu la chance d'être accueillis dans notre langue. C'était inespéré… Nous avions ainsi l'impression, dès notre arrivée, d'être chez nous. Vos studios MirO sont aménagés avec beaucoup de soin et de qualité. Nous n'avons manqué de rien, tout était parfait. Dans tous les cas, nous ne regrettons pas d'avoir choisi cette date, loin de la période touristique, pour côtoyer de près la population et l'authenticité des lieux. Votre ville natale est un véritable enchantement. Nous garderons dans notre mémoire, parmi tant d'autres images, votre joli quartier avec ses riches façades et ses ruelles étroites. Nous avons fini par le tour des remparts, une manière pour nous de remémorer les lieux avant de les quitter, hélas, à regret". Jean-Paul et Isabel, January 2010

"Our stay in Dubrovnik was great. The accommodation Secret II was perfect. It's central location made it ideal for exploring the Old Town and easy to return to for a break in between sight seeing. Even though it's in the heart of the town, it was very tranquil & I didn't hear the church bells in the morning. The apartment itself was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Information received both before the trip and upon arrival was more than adequate. The description on the website was honest & accurate and the booking procedure was very straight-forward. In addition to that, any questions I had were readily answered. Arrival information, getting from the airport to the meeting place and advice about where to go - from grocery shops to restaurants & what to see - sights in Dubrovnik & around - was extremely useful. Your service in general was excellent - from the information prior to arrival, meeting up and being shown to the apartment and the apartment itself. Friendly, helpful, informative & professional, but not intrusive. I will most definitely recommend the accommodation and your services to any family, friends & colleagues who intend to visit Dubrovnik & hope to use it again next time I'm in Croatia". Russell, October 2009

"Our holiday was very enjoyable ---your country is beautiful! The apartment Citrus bay was first class and in the best situation---away from the crowded town. Hopefully we'll return some day---many thanks for all your assistance". Roger & Liz, October 2009

"Thank you again for a most pleasant and interesting stay in your beautiful city! We came across your apartment hotel on the internet when we were looking for accommodation for a week. Our first priority was to find a place close to the old town, and we felt that we were really lucky in that the MirÓ was so close to the busy tourist activities and still situated in a very quiet street. Being so close to the bus stops also made it convenient for us when we wanted to visit other parts of the town. The apartment itself was very much to our satisfaction, clean and equipped with all we needed for a week's stay. Let me also add that we very much appreciated the suggestions we received with regard to places to visit etc. All in all our stay in Dubrovnik was every bit as successful as we could hope for. We will gladly recommend your accommodation to our friends". Audun & Ida, October 2009

"We had a great time despite the weather, the only thing we would have done more of had the weather been better were boat trips to some of the islands. Regarding the accommodation Citrus bay , information and your services in general we could not fault it, the apartment had everything we needed and you and Viktor were very helpful and welcoming. A special mention also for the driver you arranged for our transfers, he was very informative and interesting, telling us about his personal experience of the siege of Dubrovnik and taking us to see some of the war damage on our way back to the airport. The only thought we had regarding the apartment was that a larger party may have found the lack of a hanging rail in the second bedroom a slight problem. If we hear of anyone thinking of visiting Dubrovnik we will be sure to mention your services." Gordon, Carol & Kristina, October 2009

"Thanks to you for your attention during our time in Dubrovnik. MirÓ studio was fantastic and your country is really really really nice. The transfer to the airport was great. The driver was really fine" Jesus & Edurne, October 2009 "We really enjoyed our visit to Dubrovnik and thought the MirÓ apartment was excellently located and appointed. I think the only suggestion I would make to improve the quality of service even more would be to have an interim cleaning service. I would have expected a maid to come in and clean the apartment at least once during our stay. All in all though, despite this we had a really great time. I wish Butterfly Services Ltd all the best for the future". Genevra, October 2009

"Perfect location! The MirÓ apartments are just by the Pile Gate to the Old town, one house back from a small quaint cove. They are in a quiet lane. The buses for the port and the taxi rank for the airport are about 75-100m away. Host was very helpfully with a late check out ...great as it had been raining all day. Had my parents with us and the location was perfect as its flat to the old city (10 or so steps)". Trip Advisor review, October 2009

"The MirÓ apartments : Couldnt have picked a better location - within easy walking distance of a picturesque harbour (1 minute) and the Old Town (3 mins) with its restaurants and bars. Also close to the buses for the other harbour, taxis to the airport and a hire car in the Hilton just up the road, bakery round the corner for fresh bread/croissants every morning too. Apartment had everything we wanted, including a DVD player (we took some to watch) and a separate toilet from the bathroom. Pretty compact but fine for two people." TripAdvisor review, October 2009

"Here are our thoughts about our experience in Dubrovnik. A lovely, clean and homely apartment -Divine studio , located right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Dubrovnik old town, and within very easy walking distance of shops and restaurants, and excursion points of departure. We were greeted by Viktor. The studio apartment was perfectly adequate, and very clean. There was a small two ring hob which was handy for simple hot breakfasts and snacks. There was a busy restaurant at the bottom of the stairs, and I was initially concerned as to how noisy it would be at night, but the double glazed windows and shutters provided great sound-proofing, and we didn't suffer any sleepless nights. The air conditioning was instantly very effective, and was a godsend when we'd been out in the hot sun all day. The website description was very accurate, and we were not in the least disappointed by the facilities. Isabelle was friendly and helpful when Catherine booked our apartment, and the process was very smooth. Viktor was enthusiastic and friendly on arrival, and talked us through the detailed tourist information he had provided for us. He suggested lots of different trips that might interest us, and although we did end up making our own arrangements for most of our excursions, he gave us lots of good ideas. He also pointed out several good restaurants, and when we tried them, the food was indeed delicious! Once Viktor had settled us in, we were left to our own devices, which is exactly how we wanted it, but we knew help was only a phone call away should we need anything. When we were due to leave on Friday, our flight wasn't until late evening, but Viktor and Isabelle very kindly allowed us to stay in the apartment until it was time to head for the airport, rather than insisting we check out first thing in the morning - this was a really nice touch, as the weather was really bad on that day, so we were in and out sheltering from the rain. Viktor also arranged our transport back to the airport and waited with us in the rain until we were safely on our way, which was very much appreciated too. All in all, a fantastic holiday, and we wouldn't hesitate in recommending this apartment to our friends. Thanks for having us!" Tony& Catherine, October 2009

"We stayed in The MirÓ apartments Studio 6, a top-floor apartment which is smart, well-equipped and has a great view of a small bay – you can fall asleep to the sound of waves lapping on the rocks. The location is just a couple of minutes' walk from the Pile Gate, the main entrance to the Old City of Dubrovnik. The apartment manager was friendly and helpful and was kind enough to meet us off the airport transfer bus and take us to the apartment – which was nice as it was dark and pouring with rain when we arrived. The apartment had air conditioning, but was perfectly warm enough in October and with both windows closed was very quiet. I'm picky about mattresses and this one was very comfortable. All in all, a great place to be based for a few days exploring the beautiful walled city of Dubrovnik". TripAdvisor review, October 2009

"The MirÓ apartments are high quality and are in a excellent location. You are literally on top of the sea as you go round the corner of the place onto a little cove with a restaurant where you can get breakfast in the sunshine. The apartments are well designed with everything you would need if you didn't want to eat out. Really good value for money" TripAdvisor review, October 2009

"A great apartment in a fantastic location, just next to Pile Gate but away from the crowds and overlooking a very picturesque harbour. These apartments are compact but with everything you could need and spotlessly clean. Viktor & Isabelle are incredibly helpful, always on hand with helpful tips and advice on the local area and Dubrovnik is AMAZING!!! I would recommend the MirÓ apartments in an instant and will definitely be making a return visit." TripAdvisor review, October 2009 "MirÓ was an excellent apartment situated just outside the city walls, within easy reach from which to explore. The apartment was of moderate size but was modern and clean and suited our needs perfectly. Would certainly go there again and the staff provided really good advice and suggestions during our stay". TripAdvisor review, October 2009

"The MirÓ apartments are of a very high standard. Everything was spotlessly clean and looked pretty new. Everything was there to help you enjoy your stay- fridge, cooker, cable TV, DVD player, free internet access, quiet air con. The location is stunning - moments from a quiet little harbour area with a cracking restaurant. You really feel like you are away from it all, yet you are minutes from the madding crowds of the old town. The best of both worlds. The managers of the apartments, Butterfly Services, are a top quality operation. We booked directly with them and received an email regarding availability within hours. Isabelle then phoned the following day to take the deposit details - it took her 5 times to get me, but she didn't give up! She also arranged a car to meet us at the airport. When we arrived near the apartment, the ever-smiling Viktor was there to walk us to the office and give us maps and tips. Fantastic. Waiting in the apartment fridge were wine, beer, juice and water - a really nice touch. This is a perfect spot to have a quiet, relaxing break but also be near to the action of the old town. Viktor's valuable local knowledge and friendly chats ensured that we got the most out of our break. He's a star." TripAdvisor review, October 2009

"We were really enjoyed our time in Dubrovnik and will definitely return! We thought that the location of the accommodation Divine was excellent. The property was clean and comfortable. I am aware that different guests have different needs but we felt that the washing machine was not necessary and that its position in a small bathroom took up too much space and restricted access to the shower. The information we received, booking etc were very efficient and we were very satisfied with the whole process". Claire, October 2009

"The MirÓ apartments studio were great, the location was perfect, just outside the Pile gate. They were very clean and well maintained, with excellent facilities; we even got a small bottle of wine, juice and water in the fridge for free. The owners are very friendly and keen to make sure you have an enjoyable time in Dubrovnik. Excellent, would highly recommend". TripAdvisor review, October 2009

"We spent a great time in Dubrovnik. Thank you for your exclusive service and your hospitality. Everything was very well organised from your part. The apartments Divine III , Divine studio were just perfect. The Location was excellent, the apartment is very nice with all essential comfort and it was clean. I think for the next time we will again book this apartment. Also the studio was nice but of course the apartment is more convenient. We hope to see you the next time again in Dubrovnik. Thank you for everything". Caroline & Markus, September 2009

"Both Jill & I thought the Secret I apartment was ideal. It was very clean comfortable, quiet & in a great location. You are an excellent tour guide & host. The information you gave us was very helpful ... I think we visited all of your recommended spots. The booking process was easy & the slight misunderstanding about arrival time didn't cause us any inconvenience. We will recommend Butterfly services without hesitation to all family & friends travelling to Dubrovnik. Thank you for a very enjoyable stay in Dubrovnik". Jill & John September 2009

"The Hortensia : excellent location, very clean and tidy, perfect for a holidaying couple. It was exactly as shown and described on the website so what you saw is what you got. We were very happy with your services. Once again, thank you for recommending Hortensia apartments. We had a great time and will definitely contact you again when we are next in Dubrovnik." Anita, September 2009

"I would like to thank you for everything. My cousin and I had a fabulous time in your city and at the Hortensia . Thanking you once again." Gerry, September 2009

"Thanks for everything! One of best experiences of my life! The apt Aramis , was perfect. I didn't want to leave. I miss it so much!!!! Hopefully we'll be back sometime soon!!!" Emily, Septembre 2009

"We just wanted to send a thank you note for all the help you gave us during our stay in Croatia - the Secret I & III were great, the restaurant recommendations were excellent and the excursion recommendations were perfect. Thank you so much for making our trip so wonderful and memorable". Nicole & Brad, September 2009

"The accommodation Divine III is of the highest standard, the location is perfect and the cleanliness and size exceptional and comfortable. The headroom in the bedroom area is limited but this is to be expected in the loft area! I found the information we received to be excellent and personal, the website information was good and the response to queries and payment from yourselves was very good. It was a great help for you to organise the taxis and then meet us at the Pile Gate to escort us to the apartment and again on our departure. The tourist information Viktor gave us on arrival was excellent and he was very friendly and got our stay off to a fabulous start. I would also like to thank him for his swift response when I encountered a problem with the front door key and getting into my suitcase! As you may gather we were delighted with your services and communication and will certainly be in touch should we return to Dubrovnik, which is a beautiful place. I can assure you that we have recommended the city and your apartment to our friends and relatives! Thanks again for your hospitality!" Chris & Kate, September 2009

"We enjoyed ourselves very much in Dubrovnik. It is a truly beautiful place, and the MirÓ apartment was lovely. Thank you" Jenny, September 2009

"We had a great time whilst staying in your apartment Divine I in Dubrovnik. Very nice, convenient apartment, To find extra clean towels was very good. Viktor's advice on what to do and where to go was very valuable Is it possible to describe the approach to Divine Apartments in a different way? We didn't realize that the narrow alleyways were the streets you were referring to in your directions so walked past several times. Thank you again and we hope to see you again in the future". Mike & Kath, September 2009

"We had a lovely time in Dubrovnik. The accommodation Divine III was a very good location. Central but also very quiet. It was modern and clean. The bedroom was a bit uncomfortable due to the low sloping ceiling. The communications from you both have been very good (we sent requests to a few companies but it was the warm welcoming email from yourselves that led us to booking with you). Our arrival and departure were very easy thanks to the help you gave us. When we booked I should have asked what other accommodation you had available and checked we had the most suitable for us. Maybe you could have suggested any alternatives you had available. Many thanks, we had a great week." Tim & Denise, September 2009

"MirÓ apartment is very well appointed; light, modern and attractive. The location (just outside the old city walls) is perfect and the staff is genuinely friendly and helpful. Its great value and we would certainly recommend it". TripAdvisor review, September 2009

"MirÓ Nice apartment, excellent location, very helpful property manager - told us all the hot spots in and around Dubrovnik. Just make sure your room is on the top floor b/c the view is brilliant!" TripAdvisor review, September 2009

"The owner was friendly but not pushy and was keen to tell us the highlights of Dubrovnik. Two bottles of wine waited in our fridge in a compact but ideal apartment complete with all mod cons. The location couldn't have been better, away from the chaotic Pile Gate entrance to Dubrovnik next to a hidden cove yet a mere 5 minute walk from the sights. Bakery, restaurant and supermarket nearby. It was a great 2 day stay after 9 wonderful days on Kolocep. MirÓ apartment is an ideal base for exploring Dubrovnik and the islands" TripAdvisor review, September 2009

"We had a very pleasant stay at the Citrus Bay apartment . The location was perfect, the views were outstanding and it was very central for us to get around, at first we were concerned about the steps down to Lapad but they were fine. The apartment was very comfortable with great facilities, we could not have asked for more. It was spotlessly clean and it was great that the cleaner came in after our first week to change the beds and towels – we did not expect that and were very grateful. The information on the website was excellent, very good description and pictures of the property, we were not misled at all, it was excellent. The booking procedure was nice and simple and your prompt responses to information and requests was excellent. We were grateful to you for arranging the transfers to and from the airport and also grateful for the welcome pack at the apartment, that was very much appreciated. Your service in general was perfect, we would certainly book with you again and recommend the Citrus Bay to our friends and families We had a wonderful time and would like to thank you both for making it possible". Sandra, September 2009

"If you want to be close to all the action in Dubrovnik, without the crowds of tourists going past your door, then MirÓ apartment is the perfect place to stay. Just outside the old city, you are less than 30 seconds from the action without the noise (and inflated prices) that come with being inside the city walls. The rooms are tastefully decorated and very comfortable. I stayed in what was apparently the smallest room, but for one or two people would be perfect. It was significantly larger than a lot of European hotel rooms. The lounge can be separated from the sleeping area to create defined spaces or opened up to make the room feel larger. The little kitchenette is perfect if you want to eat in one night or even whip up a snack to take down to the nearby water's edge. The hosts go out of their way to tell you all the good places to eat, secret places to enjoy a drink with a view and generally how to make the most of your time in this beautiful city." TripAdvisor review, September 2009

"We were delighted with the MirÓ studio . The location was great, just 2 mins from Hilton Hotel and Pile Gate but in a quiet street. The studio was modern and clean and had everything we needed - the juice and wine were a welcome treat after a long journey. I would return here again and we found the owner Viktor to be very pleasant and helpful. Dubrovnik is amazing and it's always great to have nice accommodation to return to after a day in the sun!" TripAdvisor review, September 2009

"We loved our visit to Dubrovnik and Croatia. Bougainvilliers is a lovely home away from home. We enjoyed meeting you. You were very helpful in many areas. Thank you for everything". Karen, August 2009

"We had a lovely time in Dubrovnik, its a beautiful City and we didn't want to leave! The apartment Divine I was beautiful, no complaints! I will defiantly be suggesting friends and family come to stay! Thank you very much for your help whilst we were there. Many thanks". Leah, August 2009

"Thank you for all your help, attention and caring while we were in Dubrovnik. We had a wonderful time and would not hesitate to contact you again for a return trip to the area". Craig, August 2009

"The Citrus bay : very clean; spacious; great balcony. Storage in bedroom 2 was limited. Overall the apartment was faultless. Information was very good - the 130 steps (no problem for us) may be useful for others to know. Butterfly service was very good and informative. Advice on local buses would help - avoid Saturday night to Dubrovnik! We had a great holiday - although we lost all our photos through a damaged memory card - we'll have to come back!" Stuart, August 2009

"We enjoyed our stay very much in Dubrovnik. The Divine III apartment was perfect, just what we were looking for. Extremely clean and everything was everything in order. Viktor was extremely helpful and it was perfect meeting him at the corner of za rokom. Thank you for everything" Leonie & Karl, August 2009

"We had a wonderful time in Dubrovnik and we really liked Croatia. The Citrus bay apartment was very nice, very light and comfortable, in a great location and was very clean. The kitchen is very well equipped and easy to cook in. The only problem we found was that there was nowhere to put clothes in the smaller bedroom; it needs a wardrobe to put clothes in. The balcony was great to relax and eat in. The information we received and read on the website was correct and informative. The service from everybody was great and Viktor was very helpful with information about Dubrovnik and the surrounding area. We had a great holiday and would recommend you to anybody who was visiting Dubrovnik and needed an apartment... "Annette & Ray, August 2009

"Thank you for a good stay in Dubrovnik. The Secret I apartment was very convenient in the Old City and elegantly furnished and chttp://www.butterflyservices.hr/manager/index.php?mod=page&action=edit&ID=62omfortable. We took advantage of the taxi service to and from the airport which was most efficient. The advice we received on arrival was accurate and proved invaluable, making our stay all the more enjoyable. Many thanks again for your help". Christina, August 2009

"MirÓ Studio Fantastic newly rebuilt flat in a traditional house with views out over the Pile Gate and the adjoining Fortress. 20 meters walk to the little harbor and pier where the Kayaks are hired from. Absolutely delightful flat and location. Only 1 minute walk into the walled city via Pile Gate yet off the main drag and very quiet. Viktor and Isabelle provide an excellent unobtrusive service for visitors". Gary, August 2009

"Thank you so much for your help in Dubrovnik, all Viktor's recommendations proved to be spot on! As for the apartment Divine III , we absolutely loved being there, the only things that we missed were a few kitchen utensils: corkscrew, sharp knife and a board to cut bread etc. We will definitely recommend your services to our friends". Ewa, August 2009

"We stayed in your Bougainvilliers apartment from the 19-26th August. The apartment was beautiful, very clean and had everything we needed. Viktor gave us a very warm welcome and the information he gave us when we arrived was fantastic. The location was perfect. We had a brilliant stay thank you". Jennifer, August 2009

"MirÓ est très bien situe et gérant très agréable (et parlant Français). Bien qu'il soit peut être possible de trouver un hôtel moins chers dans la région je recommande celui ci qui permettra aux couples sans enfants de profiter pleinement de la ville tout en étant au calme et en face d'un petit port magnifique".TripAdvisor review, August 2009 "We had a marvellous time at the Aramis . Luksha took good care of us. The apartment was wonderful. Perfect location, comfortable and clean. The transport you set up was great, the information you sent was very helpful and it was very good that there was a book on Dubrovnik in the room. We will definitely recommend you to our friends and family. Thank you!" Samantha, August 2009

"We had an excellent time in Dubrovnik and are extremely sad to be home in cold, wet Belfast!! I We would certainly recommend the Bougainvilliers to anyone visiting Dubrovnik. Firstly, Viktor was extremely helpful throughout the booking process and in the months thereafter (I sent him many many emails!). The website pictures did not do the apartment justice and were very pleasantly surprised when we saw it. The location was ideal for us, although bringing our cases up the 96 steps was not ideal! However, this was a minor inconvenience and certainly did not overshadow the beauty of the place. The accommodation was clean and comfortable, the only minor complaint was that the shower in the smaller ensuite was very poor and some of girls complained that it sprayed everywhere! Having a pool was definitely one of the highlights of the apartment – especially on the very hot days. The information pack left in the apartment was very useful, especially when choosing where to eat. My husband and I had a meal in Gils, which although very expensive was definitely a worthwhile experience. All in all we had an excellent experience using Butterfly services and Viktor was extremely helpful throughout. I would not hesitate to return to the Bougainvilliers and very much look forward to visiting again in the future". Emma, August 2009

"Thank you for arranging the Porthos apartment for me. Everything was great. The apartment is in an excellent location, it is nicely decorated and it was very clean and well maintained etc. Your services were also great and I appreciate your help in trying to find me other accommodations. I would definitely recommend your services and Porthos to family and friends". Brett, August 2009

"We had a fantastic week and the Bougainvilliers apartment was lovely, very clean and comfortable. Your booklet of info was really useful and the ease of taxis back and forth and Viktor being there on arrival and departure made everything very easy and of course, very friendly & welcoming. Everything was described as per the website so there were no surprises apart from it being so much prettier than it looked in the photos! I think your website photos don't show how lovely the terrace and pool are – I don't remember there being pot plants etc in the pictures, they don't do it justice, you should take some more photos! I will definitely recommend you to friends and family. Thanks for a lovely stay". Vanessa, July 2009

"Picasso is a nice place for holidays, taxis were also ok. Information about Dubrovnik enough. One of the most unproblematic sort stays. Thank you and I am sure we will choose your services again". Micha, July 2009

"We were really impressed with the accommodation Bougainvilliers (it actually looked better in real life than on the web!) The rooms were clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked for home cooking. The location was also ideal. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who was too unfit or old, but for me it was great. Viktor was amazing!! We did pretty much everything he suggested and it was really nice to get a local point of view. It was also good to hear how to get around without paying for expensive cruises etc. You were also great at replying to my emails when I had queries so I really couldn't fault your communications. Everything was great. I have already recommended you to colleagues!" Amy, July 2009

"The Thalassa II apartment was nice (especially the view) and the lady that greeted us was very kind". Olivier, July 2009

"Me and Katie had a wonderful time in Croatia! Lovely accommodation Divine I , very clean and had enough facilities for what we were looking for. The location was very good which we appreciated a lot! Comfortable accommodation too. -The accommodation was the same as advertised on the website; the booking procedure was ok too! We really appreciated the info that Viktor gave us when he met us (about the sights to see and places to eat and drink, etc) and were very grateful that he could meet us at Pile Gate. We both thought your services were very good - friendly and professional. Appreciated the amount of contact prior to arriving, and the freedom the apartment gave us. We would recommend! Overall, we had a lovely stay and were very happy with the accommodation and the service you provided - thank-you!" James, July 2009

" Secret III apartment : Charming and spacy duplex, looks like the pictures on the website, in excellent location and good condition (right next to Saint Blaise church in the centre of the old town), trendy furniture... and the wine bottle at the arrival shows the attention to details of the service. Viktor warmly welcomed us to show the apartment but also made relevant suggestions on the "wassup & watson" in Dubrovnik" Marie, July 2009 "We greatly enjoyed our time at the Bougainvilliers apartment and found all the facilities very good. We enjoyed ourselves and would definitely come back again". Many Thanks Richard, July 2009

"Thank you so much for your help to make our stay in Dubrovnik so easy and enjoyable; Divine I Accommodation –location, comfort, cleanliness were all of an excellent standard. Furniture was new and/or well presented. The kitchen was extremely well equipped. Information you received -description on website, booking procedure, arrival information, tourist information was very helpful. Being able to text Isabelle and Viktor made arrival easy. Viktor was very accommodating of our arrival and departure times. Booking was easy and efficient. Both Isabelle and Viktor were polite and welcoming at all times. Nick and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Dubrovnik. We have recommended it to our friends and have been more than happy to recommend booking accommodation through Butterfly Services. Many thanks" Katie, July 2009

"We were very happy with the Bougainvilliers apartment in Dubrovnik. The apartment was lovely and had everything that we needed. It was great to have taxi's arranged for arrival and departure. We found you very helpful. Finally, Dubrovnik is a gorgeous city and we had a lovely holiday. Thank you". Jeanne, July 2009

"We were very pleased with our stay. It was quite easy to access, to make payments, and response via e-mail was immediate, which is really important. The apartments Secret were just as we were expecting, and I would like to say that we were treated very nicely by the Viktor, whom we met while with our luggage. Thank you for everything". Daniel, July 2009

"Myself and Alan had a very enjoyable stay in Dubrovnik. We found the apartment Divine I to be perfect, there were no changes to be made, perhaps maybe having two sets of keys, however maybe this was available and we just didn't ask. The location was perfect and all the information about restaurants, trips, beaches etc was very helpful. We will definitely recommend the apartment to our friends and family. Thank you again". Orla & Alan, July 2009

"We had a wonderful time in Dubrovnik and are more than a little sad to be back in New York and at work. Your assistance certainly made our stay in Dubrovnik a success! We generally were very happy with the apartment Divine studio , and in particular, with your services. The website description, information about how to meet you, and directions were all very helpful to an out-of-town visitor. We particularly appreciated how helpful and accommodating you were when we wanted to add nights to our stay. It was wonderful that you were available at the times that we needed to arrive and depart. The apartment itself was in a wonderful location. We couldn't have been happier in that regard! My only complaint about the space was the studio's bathroom. We felt that the apartment was very clean and appropriate for our needs. We would definitely recommend your services. Thank you so much again!" Meg, July 2009

"We had an amazing time, the MirÓ apartment was perfect! Thank you for being so lovely and helpful, you guys really made our holiday extra special! Thanks again". Jmex, July 2009

"We had a wonderful stay in the Divine I apartment - it was very well located and easy to find, and exceptionally clean and comfortable, with the added bonus of the courtyard - everything was just perfect. It was lovely being in the heart of the old city - so near to everything, as well as being able to hop on a boat and visit the beautiful surrounding islands. The service we received was smooth and efficient, from booking through to the arrangements to arrive at the apahttp://www.butterflyservices.hr/manager/index.php?mod=page&action=edit&ID=62rtment, with emails and a telephone call from Victor and Isabelle providing a thorough and personal service. Victor showed us round the apartment and then took the time to advise on places to eat, drink and visit - it was really helpful and gave us a great starting point. Similarly, the folder in the apartment provided lots of useful further information on what to see and do. All in all, the service was first class. Our friends had recommended this to us, and we would definitely recommend to others. Many thanks again for providing an excellent holiday - we certainly plan to come back to Dubrovnik and will be in touch to stay in your lovely apartment again". Sue & David, July 2009

"Both mine and Tony's experience of our stay at the Divine studio was great and I have gone on to recommend the studio to friends and relatives. The booking procedure was strait forward and information accurate. The location of the studio was perfect and close to all of the local amenities. The general state of the studio was also very clean and tidy and I would not hesitate to stay there or to use your friendly and efficient service again". Jon, July 2009

"We had a wonderful time, but a long journey home. We thought that the apartment Citrus bay was excellent, well located, and clean and well equipped. It was just as advertised on the website. The information was very good. The advice on places to visit and restaurants was very good. Dubrovnik is beautiful and we also particularly like our trip out to Ston and Korcula; the landscape was stunning. I have never been to Croatia before and I think that it is a wonderful place with very friendly and helpful people. Your service was excellent, from the first e-mails through to the goodbye at Citrus Bay . Thank you for organizing the car hire, which was much better value that renting from England. I would certainly recommend Butterfly Services to friends". Tim. July 2009

"Thanks for your kind wishes about our wedding, we are missing Dubrovnik! The MirÓ apartments are beautiful and we are all so glad we chose to stay in them; the extra touches of wine in the fridge and tea in the cupboard were wonderful to find! The location is just ideal, so close to Pile gate and we loved hanging out on the jetty too! The nearest beaches round the corner were also great and Viktor was so helpful in directing us to them. He gave us great help and advice all week and was so friendly. We would certainly recommend your accommodation to anyone and hope to visit you again one day! Thanks". Hannah & Andrew, July 2009

"We are finally at home. I am very grateful to you for our wonderful days in Dubrovnik. Thank you for your hospitality. We had good days on Plitvicke lakes & in Zagreb, but the best was our holiday in Dubrovnik in MirÓ Studio thanks to you. We are missing you". Nodira & Benazir, July 2009

"Thank you, everything was perfect with the MirÓ apartment . And the sun was shining the whole weekend, so we had a brilliant and most romantic wedding we could dream of! We will definitely come back to Dubrovnik, so we will contact you then! Thanks once again" Julia & Arnd, July 2009

"MirÓ: Paar minuten zu fuß in die altstadt, bushaltestelle um die ecke (zum strand), veranstalter von kanuausflügen um die nächste ecke, romatischer aussichtpunkt, restaurants und und und... alles wunderbar" TripAdvisor review, July 2009

"We stayed in MirÓ for three nights and enjoyed every minute. The owner, Viktor, was very helpful with his suggestions how to make our stay great. The room was big and comfortable and clean, it even has a modern kitchenette. We didn't need it, though, but had we stayed longer we probably would have. Best of all is the location, of course. 2 minutes from old town where all the action and sights are. But very quiet at night and off the main bustle. Definitely a great pick! " TripAdvisor review, July 2009

"MirÓ studio is right next to Pile entrance to old town and close to the sea, best to take top floors for the view, cool furniture, excellent bathroom, super well thought of to save space. Butterfly may not be the cheapest but definitely worth the quality on the top end of accomodation offers in Dubrovnik. We recommend indeed!!!!" TripAdvisor review, July 2009

"A friend and I stayed in MirÓ 7 and my other two friends in 4. The rooms were comfortable, stylish, clean, open and air-conditioned. High speed internet access was available. We had lovely views of the Pile port from our room and were within very short walking distance from The Old Town of Dubrovnik, which was perfect for us. The main beach we went to was Bane beach club which was only a ten minute pleasant walk through the town. The staff were helpful and incredibly nice. Inside the room were free guides to the best restaurants and places to see and go. Local supermarkets are again only a few steps from the door and there is a handful or really nice restaurants equally close catering to all tastes. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here". TripAdvisor review, July 2009

"We recently had a four night stay at the MirÓ Studio Apartment in Dubrovnik. I highly recommend it if you are looking for apartment-style accommodation with the ability to self-cater. The location is excellent; just outside the city walls (less than 5 minutes walk to get inside the old city). MirÓ is located just around the corner from two picturesque coves either side of Fort Lovrjenac; one of which has a great little restaurant (Orhan) and the other has a nice rocky beach from which to go for a swim. The apartment (#4) was comfortable, clean and decorated in a modern style. The bed could fold up into the wall for extra space, but I didn't find this to make the bed any less comfortable. The only criticism I have is that the stairwell acted as bit of an echo chamber, maybe some soft furnishings in the stairwell might counteract this. Viktor was an excellent host, meeting our car that brought us from DBV airport to the bus area . I would recommend getting in touch with him before you arrive, as I am not sure I would have initially found the place. His recommendations about where to eat and visit whilst you are in town are worth paying attention to. If you are looking for this style of accommodation you should definitely consider the MirO apartments for your stay". TripAdvisor review, July 2009

"My husband and I recently stayed at the MirÓ and loved it. The apartments are locked right near the Pile Gate, just down the steps in fact, in this lovely little bay that enjoys views of the ocean, the City's walls and defensive tower. The apartments occupy a wonderful old building, but all apartments are new. Our apartment was a perfect size for us with good bathroom facilities and a great little kitchenette. Furnishings were modern and it was great to come 'home' each day after the heat of summer. Viktor and Isabelle, and their team, were fantastic. Couldn't do enough to ensure we enjoyed our stay. Viktor recommended a private day tour for us which was brilliant and our guide, Peter, was incredibly well informed and great company for the day! As for Dubrovnik....well, who could visit that city without falling in love. We will be back!! And we will city seek out the MirÓ Apartments for a return trip.....You can not go wrong with this little gem". TripAdvisor review, July 2009

"We spent 4 days in Studio MirÓ 6 in July. We can only say, this was our best pick we can do. We were just couple of meters (maybe 30) from Pile gate, the main entrance to Old Town, but in absolutely quite street in little port, 1é metres from see, with beautiful view from the window - The old fortress on the right side, and old ruins on the left side. Studio is modern furnished, nice, absolutely enough. If you want enjoy sea view, ask for number 6 or 4. But number 6 is better. The Dubrovnik itself is like from fairytale. But prepare your money, is also expensive. If you need information, ask Viktor in reception, very nice guy, very helpful. Well, must say, this was very nice trip, thanks of very nice and best situated accommodation, and of course the unforgettable city of Dubrovnik". TripAdvisor review, July 2009

"The service and hospitality we received was brilliant. They arranged a transfer from the airport (too and from) and greeted us in Dubrovnik. It was more than we could of wished for. The location of the MirÓ apartment , a minutes walk from the Pile Gate, was ideal and in beautiful surroundings. A lovely view of the sea and city walls is within a few meters. What made our holiday more special was the apartment. Coming back to a clean, modern, yet comfy place was a bonus. (And cool due to the air con! great for the heat of the summer months) I couldn't be happier with the apartment and wouldn't change anything! We didn't want a lazy beach holiday we wanted a mix of that with good weather and culture. Dubrovnik is perfect for this. There's so much to do. We went on boat trips to islands, swam in the clear sea, sunbathed, ate great food (Nishta - a vegetarian we went to 4 times of 7 nights was amazing!), we walked the walls and shopped on the market. I absolutely loved it. I've already recommended the apartment to a friend too!" TripAdvisor review, June 2009

"The MirÓ Studio Apartment couldn't be more conveniently located next to the Pile Gate. It is a clean, sleek, modern space, with great features - such as sliding doors and under floor heating in the bathroom, as well as a fantastic sea view from the window. You descend some stairs next to the modern war memorial to find a peaceful, seclude harbour which is a welcome relief from the busy entrance to the old town, the apartment is situated a few yards up your right hand side. The people who run the apartments are friendly and extremely helpful. You can usually find them in the office next door, so don't hesitate to ask them for advice on where to go, or what to do. They know the best beaches, islands and restaurants, which saved us a lot of time and effort. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the MirO Studio Apartment and would recommend it to anyone!" TripAdvisor review, June 2009

"Entièrement rénové, la décoration des appartements est de bon goût, le lit excellent et la situation idéale. L'accueil de Butterfly services irréprochable, professionnel et très sympathique ...Un séjour magique dans cette ville historique. Les murs ont su garder leur histoire mais la vie, la vraie, la branchée, la dynamique continue. Faites les remparts après 5h00 quand tous les touristes de la journée sont partis et que la lumière est belle. Pour l'apéro, petite bière locale, deux bars le long des murs, surplombants la mer, la musique est bonne et on peut même s'y baigner, (n'oubliez pas de passer à la boucherie pour acheter un peu de jambon et fromage à grignoter...). Passez au minimum 4 nuits, voire plus, si vous établissez Dubrovnik comme point de départ, beaucoup d'îles sont à proximité...." TripAdvisor review, June 2009

"The Divine I was simply a home away from home. It had everything we required. It was very clean and well maintained. The location was ideal, very central. We can make no suggestions on how to improve the offering; it was more than adequate for our requirements. The booking process was made very simple, the information we received about the apartment and Dubrovnik was very accurate and extremely helpful. Upon arrival Viktor made us feel welcome – like we had just come home. He informed us of all the necessary information, recommendation on where to eat and go and gave us helpful hints. We felt that we could call at any time of day if we needed to. Our experience was very positive and we will have no hesitation in recommending the apartment to anyone of our friends and family travelling to Dubrovnik. Most of all we hope to return there one day very soon!" Johnny & Jo, June 2009

"We had an amazing time in Dubrovnik. The apartment Divine I and service was fantastic. Great location, nice decor, cleans and your friendly and helpful service was second to none. Thank you very much and we look forward to seeing you for our next visit to Dubrovnik which hopefully will be in the near future! "Jane, June 2009

"We are all back home safe and sound, had a great time in Croatia especially Dubrovnik, the apartment Citrus bay was great!! Thank you so much for everything!!" Jennifer, Kathryn, Janet and Andy, June 2009

"Simon and I had a lovely holiday in Dubrovnik! We felt that the location of the apartment Divine Studio was excellent and very comfortable. The information we initially received was excellent; directions to the apartment from the airport was great as was arranging the transfer to the airport on our return to the UK. You provided a flexible and very helpful service thorough providing excellent 'local' information and greatly assisted us. This assisted us in navigating around the area and also to Mostar. You provide a top class service which was excellent value for money! We would recommend your apartment, and Dubrovnik as a wonderful place to go on a holiday. Thanks for everything you did". Emma May 2009 "I am missing being in your part of our wonderful world!!!! We had a wonderful time in Dubrovnik. We loved the apartments Divine I and Divine studio …the location was great. Especially with our boys…The apartments were clean….comfortable and overall it was very very good!!! Guess I never realized there would be a washing machine in there…That would be nice to mention on the site. AS you know we OVERPACKED and that plagued us the whole trip!!!! I am just very happy with the whole time we were there. Thanks so much for getting our transfer set up back to the airport. That was very nice. I'll recommend you to anyone that is going your way. Thanks so much for all you did for us". Coreen, May 2009

"We really enjoyed our stay in the Picasso apartment and Dubrovnik is a beautiful city. We were very pleased about how well-equipped and clean the apartment was. And of course the location is great. We were welcomed nicely and were able to have a late checkout: so flexible! Great service/follow-up...Thanks!! "Ama & Ricardo, May 2009

"Ein modernes Appartment im gehobenen IKEA-Stil, direkt neben der Altstadt in einer kleinen Gasse am PILE-Gate gelegen. MirÓ Unbedingt empfehlenswert!" TripAdvisor review, May 2009

"MirÓ apartment is perfectly situated, just outside the old town (so away from the tourists)in a tranquil little street near a beautiful port. The accommodation itself is of high quality -comfortable, clean, modern and fully-equipped. A home from home. We were very pleased with our stay here". TripAdvisor review, May 2009

"We had an amazing time! Thank you for you kind hospitality. We were so sad to leave". Katie, May 2009

"MirÓ apartments were the perfect studio apartments for our stay in Dubrovnik. Not only was it very affordable, it was chic, clean, new and convenient. Its location was ideal for being amongst the old city but not amongst the business or noise that Dubrovnik can produce. Viktor was extremely hospitable and very helpful in giving us the best places to visit, pamper and eat at. As a very experienced traveler, I highly recommend MirÓ apartments. Thanks again". Stella, May 2009

"We had a lovely time in Dubrovnik, despite the weather. The MirÓ apartment was wonderfully comfortable and the setting perfect. David took hundreds of photos, so we would be glad to send you some. Hope to see you next time". Laüra, April 2009

"We had a lovely time in Dubrovnik, and appreciated Viktor's help in suggesting places to walk. I think we could have had a much longer walk, but the short ones were fine really. We had thought before we came that we would do 15-20 Km down the coast somewhere. The MirÓ apartment was in a beautiful situation, so handy for everything and with that wonderful view down into the little rocky cove. I sat for hours at the window just watching the sea, and enjoying the floodlights at night! The apartment was indeed beautifully designed and equipped, though perhaps a little too "High Tech" for us! We did not use the cooking facilities at all, because, although it all looked good and as if it was out of a magazine about luxury homes, it was not terribly practical, with no work surface, for example, to prepare any food. The bed was very comfortable and we slept very well. It was peaceful and restful, and we could not really believe we were so close to the hustle and bustle of Pile Gate! We felt we were well looked after by Butterfly Services. We have good memories of a happy few days in your apartment". Maggie, April 2009

"We would like to thank you for your hospitality and flexibility of our arrival and departure time. It was very nice that you follow after our needs. I have to say we fall in love in Dubrovnik and Croatia! Really...Friendly and helpful people, clean city, amazing views and lovely architecture! It was the most romantic holidays in our life! We enjoy a quiet and restful stay at the end of year. And New Year dinner...it was very nice :) The view from the window is breathtaking. We like apartment design - very modern, clean and comfortable. Everything was perfect even the weather! For sure MirÓ apartments would be highly recommended by us!" Agnieszka & Lukasz, December 2008

"We very much enjoyed MirÓ. It had everything we could have hoped for: a nice location, comfortable furniture, excellent lighting, a very nice shower and storage space. We enjoyed the town of Dubrovnik very much and would certainly recommend Miro to our friends". Bob, December 2008

"We wanted to thank you again for a delightful stay in Dubrovnik and MirÓ. Also a heartfelt thank you very much for the touching Christmas gift, which we really appreciated. A very nice gesture". Barbara, December 2008

" L'appartement MirÓ est très agréable et idéalement situé, avec une vue adorable, et Marjiana n'a pas manqué de nous demander à chaque fois que nous la croisions si nous avions besoin de quelque chose. Depuis notre retour, je pense que nous n'avons pas cessé de dire à tous nos amis qui ne connaissent pas à quel point nous avons aimé Dubrovnik et notre appartement Miro est en bonne place dans nos récits de vacances. Il est certain que nous ne manquerons pas de recommander votre maison. dans l'attente d'y revenir j'espère…"François, September 2008 "Perfectly positioned for exploring 'Old Town". Can return to apartment during day and night. Quiet, clean and great service from Marijana. MirÓ: A little home away from home. Apt 4 and 6 have views". TripAdvisor review, September 2008

"Votre appartement MirÓ a été fort agréable par sa décoration et par sa situation. Nous avons pu ainsi apprécier cette ville ou le culturel et la gastronomie étaient au rendez vous. Nous ferons une bonne "pub sur vos offres de logement". Claire, August 2008

"We enjoyed Croatia very much. We were very pleased with the accommodation Juliette as it could not have been more to our taste. We had everything we could possibly need at our disposal and the apartment was in a prime location. The owners were very nice people and very helpful to us during our holiday. We would not hesitate to recommend to our family and friends. Thank you!" Angela, August 2008

"I just wanted to write to you to thank you for all of your help in planning our holiday to Dubrovnik at the end of August. David and I had a lovely holiday, we thought Dubrovnik was beautiful and loved the Paloma III apartment , the location was perfect. I hope that one day we can return to Dubrovnik. Thank you once again for everything". Charlotte, August 2008

"We are very pleased of our visit in Dubrovnik and the quality of apartment Hippocampe was good. We will recommend your apartments and offer to our friend. Ewa, August 2008
