“Lovely quiet apartment on tiny island”
My boyfriend and I stayed here last month (May '13) for a week and thought it was fantastic. We rented to larger apartment, due to the smaller one bedroom being booked on some of the days we wanted, but it was actually a really good size for us. It was VERY reasonably priced, and great value for money. - The kitchen was well equip and clean, there was a fridge and utensils for cooking the bathroom was very modern, and the entire place was air conditioned. The one or two things I would say about the apartment is that it is above the owners own home, so not super private, and really has NO food (we had to buy salt and olive oil etc and ended up leaving most of it), though there was welcome red wine and chocolates. You also share a balcony with anyone else renting the other apartment, but it was a great size and had a fantastic view. The island of Kolocep itself was lovely, though very small, and lacking a bit in places to eat and buy groceries. We got the (very cheap) ferry to Dubrovnik 20mins away most days (the shop didn't seem to have bread or breakfast things, it was mainly beach toys, postcards, beer and icecream). The days we did stay on the island there wasn't really anywhere for us to eat - one quite expensive restaurant, the hotel (where you have to book dinner the day before) and a couple of bars. On the other side, in the other village, there was a nice tavern-style place that sold basic food. We had a lovely time, and felt very well looked after by the family, who organised all our taxis for us (at a very reasonable rate) as well as meeting us from the ferry and bringing us cake and pastries during the week. This would be perfect for a couple or family looking for a quiet, safe coastal holiday (the beaches weren't all that) that don't mind self catering and want to meet people so enjoy the personal interaction with the owner and his family. The pictures do not do it justice, the flat is spotless and perfect, and the island is beautiful.
“Great for young families and such lovely hosts”
My husband and I rented the 2 bedroom aparment as we needed more space with our 21 month old son than the hotel would have allowed. The family from the very start were very hospitable. We were greeted at the ferry dock, our bags transported over to the apartment, and Ante even carried our pushchair (complete with child) up the stairs for us. There were even beers in the fridge which was excellent and much needed after a long day travelling, and a few days before we departed we were brought barbecued squid, potatoes and tomatoes which was very kind. The apartment itself is practically laid out, nicely furnished and spotlessly clean. We had a travel cot (provided for us) in our room, so used the second bedroom as a living room with a TV in it. The bathroom is very spacious with good facilities. The kitchen and dining area aren't huge, but the terrace is huge so not really a problem. The terrace also has one of the loveliest views on the island in my opinion.
“Phantastic place for relaxing holiday”
We spent 10 days in the middle floor apartment of family Svilokos and liked everything about it. The family was very hospitable and friendly, the view - amazing, we got asleep listening sounds of the sea every night! The apart lays between 2 beaches - sandy beach suitable for children and rocky FKK beach with convinient ladder leading directly into the deep sea. And also there is possibility to go in the water just 10 meter away of the apart! We would certainly recommend this apart to our friends!
“Lovely apartment in amazing location with the most hospitable hosts”
We had a fantastic time on Kolocep. Ante and his family were welcoming and went above and beyond. The apartment is small but perfectly functionable and the view from the terrace is amazing. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday then it is to be found on Kolocep - the children had a whale of a time playing on the beach and we took the ferry over to Dubrovnik a couple of times too. We will definitely return :)
“Back to simple, natural, sea around things”
We were delighted! Having open windows(during night), few meters far away from the sea&waves, accommodated in an hundred years old - stone made- house, property of a great Croatian family, sun bathing, swimming, sailing (forget the TV, although a flat screen one in the apartment)...what else would you need?Convinient connected to Dubrovnik(regular sea trips with Postira boat), the island is natural oasis, near to a great (still crowd Dubrovnik)...definitely considering to return.
“Perfect location for a quiet, relaxing holiday in beautiful bay”
Quite a small apartment with no sitting room, which I was worried about, but I needn't have, the weather was perfect and the terrace was lovely to sit and watch the boats and look at the spectacular scenery. The Svilokos family couldn't do enought for us - they were lovely. The island is very quiet with no discos and only about 5 places to eat in in high season. Two restaurants were only open for lunch when we were there. The shop was very basic but did sell most stuff we needed except for fresh meat - only peculiar cooked meat was available. However, the ferry to Dubrovnik is very cheap and regular as clockwork, as is the airport bus to the ferry port. There is a supermarket near the ferry port on the mainland where the locals buy their stuff. We caught the 6.45am ferry to Dubrovnik and were on the walls by 8am. It was very hot by then but we didn't have to fight with the crowds that turn up later in the day - it was well worth getting up for! We visited the neighbouring island of Lopud which is slightly busier with more eateries and bars and across the other side of the island (20 mins walk) is a fabulous swimming beach. If you are looking for excitement, kids clubs, lots of pay-for activities and night life this holiday is not for you. However, if you are looking for unspoilt beauty, friendly locals, long drinks in harbour cafes watching boats come and go, walks to discover snorkeling coves and hill paths with spectacular views, forests, wild flowers, lizards, and physical activities like kayaking then this place is an undiscovered gem.
“Great island, great place, nice hosts”
Kolocep island is a great, quiet place for vacation - even in summer, when near Dubrovnik is very, very crowded. The apartments of Svilokos family are a fantastic place, only ten steps away from the Adriatic sea. You can take a bath directly in front of the house, although be aware of sea urchins. Very nice owners make you feel like you are old friends, rather then tourists. We even were allowed to join Mr. Svilokos on a trip with his small fishing boat. If you want to cook, there is a nice kitchen in the apartments, but you probably have travel to the supermarket on the main land from time to time. There is only one very small shop on the island, which even can run out of basic things like bread from time to time. The island of Kolocep is quite small, free of cars and you can easily walk everywhere, but we did not feel bored at all during our 12 days-stay. The ferryboat connects Kolocep with the other Elafiti islands and Dubrovnik harbour several times a day. You even can manage a day trip to Montenegro and return in the evening to the island. Do not go there, if you want night clubs, lots of bars, fun, music and noise all night around. For all others we really recommend.
