A simply decorated 1 bedroom haven in the prettiest village in Montenegro! Original stone walls frame a lovely vista over church bells towards the tranquil bay. A few minutes' walk down pretty steps are the waterfront restaurants and calm swimming spots. Free parking just off the road above.

The space

Lovely views from the open-plan living and dining room. The renovated apartment has kept a rustic feel with exposed stonework, oak flooring and hand made rugs. There is everything you need for cooking great meals, books to browse and plenty of local information. There is small shady patio (at the back) filled with potted plants and an olive tree. Pretty stone steps and and a path strewn with orange trees lead down to the shoreline a few minutes away. Here you will find a small local shop selling groceries, wine and beer and plenty of waterfront cafes and restaurants. There is a nice spot to swim down the steps and a few minutes to the left. It's a large bay rather than the seaside. So there is no sand, but instead stone jetties to sunbathe on and the water is very clear and lovely to swim in. Beaches are 25 minutes away by car. From the village square you can take a boat to the picturesque islands or to the other side of the bay.

Guest access

Guests will have the apartment and patio to themselves
Living Room:
Open plan living area with wooden dresser, sofa and dining area which seats 4 and an oak breakfast bar looking out across the bay. There is a small library of novels and radio / bluetooth speaker for playing your tunes. There is pre-paid Internet is via a mobile router.

Bedrooms:
One double bedroom with views out to the garden patio. Hanging rails for clothes storage. There is a sofa bed in the lounge but this is not great for everyday use. Its tricky to open and close, so the apartment is best suited to a couple. There is a folding baby cot which can be set up for you - though we would recommend you bringing a travel cot since this one takes up a lot of space and is not so easy to use.

Aircon: There is aircon in the bedroom and 2 desk fans in the lounge.

Bathrooms:
Mosaic tiled bathroom with small bath, shower and WC. Mains water pressure is very low, so the apartment uses a water tank and pump to improve pressure, but it still may not be as high pressure as you are used to in other parts of the world!

Kitchen:
Kitchen equipped with full size cooker, fridge and washing machine. The owner loves cooking so there are plenty of cooking utensils and recipe books.

Interaction with guests

I'm based in London so i work with a local co-host who will welcome you and show you around the apartment.

Other things to note

Handy off road parking is available on the road a few metres above the apartment. Otherwise there is a pay parking spot just outside the village. ( non residents cars are not allowed to drive through the village centre in the summer)
A lot of steps need to be climbed or descended to reach the apartment. Its tiring in the warmth of the sun and requires a torch at night (bring your own, just in case) These steps would definitely be an issue for anyone with mobility problems and perhaps for older guests. I took my mum on her 80th birthday - and she managed the steps slowly but it was tiring.

The patio is behind the apartment and so it doesn't get as much sun and lacks sea views.

The double sofabed can be tricky to maneuver, so it's best for occasional use, not everyday opening and closing. If you need it, it can be made up for for your arrival. Same with the baby cot.

Charming cosy little apartment overlooking the lovely quaint bayside village of Perast. A great accomodation option if you are after a lower key holiday stay in an historic adriatic bay village wtih all the charms of the old Montengrian lifestye but without the Dalmatian Coast tourist hordes. The apartment sits right over an old historic church belltower offering charming views of the bay of Kotor. Two islands and a museum provide rich history of the area and there a number of adjacement bay communities to explore. Perast itself has a number of good restuarants and cafes, and there is a basic market shop provding esentials for your stay. There is also easy access by bus or water taxi into larger Kotor across the bay. The apartment is well set out for visitors with simple comfortable living areas, bathroom, kitchen and bedrooms, along wtih a lovely little courtyard facing the path down to the water. Highly recommended.

Second visit - and just as good as the first. Communication with Anne was great, as it was with her agent in Perast - Anke - who organized a car to take us to Dubrovnik. Perast is the perfect place to relax, and Anne's house is the perfect place in which to stay

Really gorgeous little gem of an apartment with a magical view. Met by Anke's rep who was charming and helpful and organised a rental car to be delivered to the door and then dropped off at the airport - fantastically convenient. Anne was also in touch throughout and really polite and helpful. The apartment is very chic in a homely way, spotlessly clean and includes all mod cons you would need to self-cater, keep cool (air con galore) and use as a base to set off on trips across the country. Perast is the most adorable, picturesque spot - arguably as good as it gets in the region. A stroll and a plunge at the water's edge is a delight. Lots of bars to have a drink and watch the world go by. Yes, there are some steps involved, but we hired a car which helped and we spent most of our time working through Anne's top tips and some of the ideas in the many guide books and maps provided. Perfect. Thanks Anne. Highly recommended. We had a lovely time.

The apartment is perfectly situated in the picturesque town of Perast. It is compact but perfectly comfortable and stylishly furnished. There are steps down to the apartment from the road above and quite a few to climb up from the main street below, but we appreciated the exercise after indulging in Perast's restaurants, plus the apartment's elevated position gives it spectacular views over the bay and makes it nice and light when the sun is shining. Anne is an excellent host who provided clear and helpful information prior to our arrival as well as tips on things to do and additional information about the local area when requested. I would highly recommend this accommodation.

Anne User ProfileAnne is a superhost.

My background is in design and innovation and my partner Ian is a chef. We have a little restaurant in Brixton Village market and a shop selling useful, beautiful and curious things for the home. We like gardening, growing food & eating it. We travel a fair bit and have had some great experiences through Airbnb. We are really looking forward to being hosts ourselves and helping people explore Brixton and our favourite 'secret' bits of London.
