VILLA KIM – MLINI BAY, DUBROVNIK RIVIERA
Villas Dubrovnik - A pretty, traditional family villa in Mlini with pool, near Dubrovnik with 3 bedrooms, close to Mlini beach and restaurants.. “The villa was very nice & the views were spectacular – the area was fantastic – we will definitely be recommending it to our friends”. Villa Kim is a splendid Dubrovnik family villa located in the picturesque town of Mlini, just outside the historic city of Dubrovnik – the village is just a 10 minute walk down the hill.
Villa OverviewMlini has a very pretty bay with a little harbour and great beaches, café/bars and sea edge restaurants so this is a great place for family holidays.
This lovely Dubrovnik family villa can accommodate up to 8 people (6+2) and offers fantastic views as well as the luxury of a private swimming pool and garden. The villa has painstakingly been restored with an attention to detail rarely found elsewhere. The stonework and wood both inside and outside the house create a warm and welcoming environment for every guest. All rooms are fully air conditioned. The beds in the ground floor and one on the second floor can be separated into single beds on request.
The village and bay of Mlini are just a 10 minute walk down the hill – Mlini has some of the nicest beaches on the Dubrovnik Riviera in our opinion and the scenery is stunning. There are lovely beaches all around the bay and a pretty harbour with a selection of restaurants and café-bars. It's a lovely place to spend days or evenings!
It’s really nice to stay in the village and being so close to everything on the Dubrovnik Riviera, it's easy to explore. There is lots to do and there are boats from Mlini out to the little islands off the coast of Dubrovnik which have hidden coves and wonderful diving/snorkelling and swimming or catch the water taxi into Dubrovnik Old Town!
Mlini is also only 10 minutes drive from the fabulous UNESCO World Heritage Site of Dubrovnik Old Town so it's easy to visit and certainly a must-see. We'd recommend going into the Old Town for dinner one evening as the atmosphere is wonderful - lamp lit streets, music in the squares and plenty of restaurants to choose from.
Next door to this lovely Dubrovnik family villa is is Villa Tereza – the two properties can be rented together, perfect for two families and will then sleep 12+4.

There are lovely little restaurants and cafes scattered around the bay and all serve fresh fish and delicious organic, local wine!
