VILLA ANAMARIA – MLINI BAY, DUBROVNIK RIVIERA
Villa Anamaria, a spectacular sea view villa, is situated just 10 minutes wander from the sea edge in Mlini Bay, with probably the best beaches in the Dubrovnik area & a host of interesting small side streets, cafes, bars & restaurants.
As a sea view villa, Villa Anamaria is quite spectacular and the first thing you notice is the sea view.

Mlini Bay is 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 or group holidays. Mlini is close to the Old Town of Dubrovnik so easy to visit for an evening although it’s really nice to stay in the village too. 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!
It is about 10 minutes walk down the hill to the historic village and bay of Mlini (depending on where exactly you’re heading) with its charming little fishing boat harbour and Mlini Bay’s beautiful beaches so everything is close by.
Mlini is historically known in the area for its water mills (“Mlini” means “mills”) which were powered by the fresh water mountain springs – you can see the streams as you wander around the pretty pathways in the village – very pleasant indeed and plenty to discover. There are lovely little restaurants in Mlini Bay and cafes scattered around the bay and all serve fresh fish and delicious organic, local wine.
Mlini has a long stretch of pebbly beach and beautiful turquoise, calm sea. For more sophistication, head into Dubrovnik Old Town and explore the windy streets – there are plenty of shops and cafes and wonderful architecture to enchant you.

“Good afternoon Helen,
Firstly we would like to thank Croatia Gems for your help and advice in booking Villa Anamaria in Mlini, also Tena for arranging the transfer to the villa, you were most helpful in answering any questions we had.
The location of the Villa was exactly what we wanted as it was near to Dubrovnik and Cavtat for our son’s Wedding in the old town at the Sponza Palace, and the sea taxis were a wonderful way to travel between resorts
The Villa had fantastic views and easily accommodated our family of 9 adults and 1 child, it was well equipped and the swimming pool was excellent complete with spa jets and plenty of towels and sun beds.
The Villa also had a barbeque area which Miro the owner showed us how to use it, we used this several times and it was very pleasant to sit out under cover on the dinning terrace and watch the sun sets.
The owner Miro was is an extremely friendly helpful man, lots of advice, taking us on a big shop to the local supermarket, keeping the pool and outside areas clean and tidy during our stay. On our arrival there was a big bowl of fruit on the table and lots of beer in the fridge, he even arrived on the wedding morning with a large bunch of flowers for our granddaughter as it was also her birthday and a simply amazing wedding cake for the bride and groom which was very tasty.
We enjoyed eating out at Bistro Cafe Bar G which has lovely sea views, morning coffee at Caffe Bar Gusar and great pizzas at Mlini Pizzeria which even offered gluten free options.
We all had a simply lovely time in Croatia and the wedding quest thought it was the wedding of the year with its stunning views, good food and drinks, a thoroughly great time was had by all of us.
Thank you so much all the very best from J & B” Aug/Sept 2019
We had a lovely time thank you.
Miro the owner was a great host, took us to the supermarket a couple of times, booked a boat trip for us and recommended a local taxi to accommodate the seven of us and was quite often around locally to enquire if everything was ok. The views from the villa were stunning…. The weather was glorious from start to finish and the outside areas of the villa were lovely. The dining area offering shade from the sun and the pool side seating area the perfect space for a pre-dinner tipple before going out in the evening, we also used the bbq for an evening in, and the pool overlooking the stunning view. Mlini is the perfect spot for travelling by sea to Dubrovnik and the nearby bays and islands, which was a nice and novel way to get about. The transfers you arranged to and from the airport were on time and hassle free.
Thank you all for all your help and assistance with the booking, hopefully we will be in touch again.
Lindsay” June 2019
Thank you for your email and I’m sorry I haven’t replied before now.
We had a wonderful holiday, thank you, and were very pleased with the service we received from Croatia Gems. From my initial chat with Denise, who was very helpful, to my pre-holiday discussions with Tena by email, to our experience once we had arrived, everything went very smoothly indeed.
Before we left home, Tena was great at researching and helping us to arrange a boat trip around the Elafiti Islands and was there to meet us at the airport in Dubrovnik. She was in touch several times whilst we were in Croatia and arranged to meet us in Gruz port to introduce us to our skipper on the day of our boat trip which was much appreciated.
Villa Anamaria was beautiful: clean, modern, extremely well-equipped with fantastic outside spaces and a breathtaking view over Mlini Bay. The owner, Miro, was also brilliant, going out of his way to make our stay perfect, including working hard to have the villa ready for us so that we were able to check in early and giving us a lift to the nearest supermarket.
The location of the villa worked well for us and we didn’t need a car. Dubrovnik was easily accessible by boat from Mlini Bay so we were able to visit a couple of times and climbing the steps up and down to Mlini several times a day definitely kept us fit!
We enjoyed meals in Lanterna, Marinero and Astarea restaurants and several lunches in Mlini Pizzeria – fantastic salads and great swimming off the promenade wall!
It was our first trip to Croatia and it has definitely left us wanting to return.
Best wishes, Jane” August 2018
I just wanted to pass on our gratitude after our holiday in Mlini.
First of all to Tena for assisting us with our transfers. She was extremely helpful when I asked her to arrange a hire car for the day, and then I subsequently had to cancel. She was very understanding and nothing seemed too much trouble.
Secondly to Miro, the Villa owner. He’s just amazing, as was the Villa.
He filled the fridge with beers and wine, took us shopping and waited while we shopped. He delivered bread every morning. The guy is the best host we’ve ever had.
Please pass on our comments and thanks on our behalf.
Also thanks to you. You were incredibly helpful from the outset when I was left stranded by the original Trip Advisor Villa that was cancelled my the owner. You spent time finding me an alternative to suit my requirements.
We will definitely use your company again and recommend to others.
Kind regards, Sarah” July 2018
The holiday was brilliant, the villa was great, with such a wonderful view – the owner, Miro, was so helpful and provided an amazing number of items for guests, which was an unexpected bonus.
Ana and Bozo were excellent representatives – always available, and gave us plenty of suggestions for restaurants and trips. All good advice. I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending Villa Anamaria and Croatia Gems.
Thank you for all your help

We have just returned from a wonderful week staying in Villa Anamaria in Mlini. The host, Miro, couldn’t have been more helpful, as was the local Rep whose name I can’t recall but provided me with crutches after I fractured my toe!!
Once again I can’t thank you and all your colleagues enough. From arrival to departure everything ran 100% smoothly and I shall certainly be recommending you and writing an excellent review.

On behalf of myself and my family I would like to thank everyone at Croatia gems both in UK and Croatia. I have never had a better holiday booking experience as I had with you. From the moment I booked with you to the moment we were dropped at the airport on our return home, every little detail was taken care of. We stayed in Villa Anamaria on a hill above Mlini Bay. The first day we arrived, Ana from Croatia Gems had arranged transport at the airport and within 15 minutes we had arrived at our villa. Maro our driver was very informative about the area and helped us with a few language pointers before we left the bus. We were met by Ana and the villa owner Miro who is a fantastic guy. After settling us in, Miro and Ana gave us some information on both the villa and the surrounding area. Miro then offered to come back and drive my wife and daughter to the supermarket for some provisions to get our holiday underway.
The villa was excellent and as others have stated was very clean and offered lots in the way of towels and other items for use during our stay. We will look at returning to the villa as it really was so good. The views from the villa are breath taking and the bus stop in both directions is only minutes away. We used the BBQ which Miro had set up for us and the food was excellent. Once again, thank you to everyone for everything done to make our holiday and my wife’s birthday so special. I would recommend both Croatia Gems and villa Anamaria to anyone who would like a relaxed and carefree holiday.
Best Regards, Stuart” June 2017
“I wanted to write to say a huge thank you for such a great holiday recommendation:
I wanted to do something special to celebrate a big Birthday for my parents this year. I’d spent time trawling the internet thinking of somewhere warm and sunny to visit in early June and ideally a location where two 70 year olds hadn’t been before but my searches were endless! Croatia came up a few times and when I saw Croatia Gems website had a number to call I rang and was hugely relieved to be able to tell them exactly what I was looking for and to be met with a couple of recommendations of places to stay and lots of local information of what to do nearby. I had forgotten that this service still existed and it was great to know I was in capable hands.
We booked Villa Anamaria for our family holiday, a huge luxury to have a private pool but the views are simply stunning here. We were met on arrival at the Villa by the owner and our local rep Ana while we waiting for the rest of our party to arrive which was a great opportunity to catch up on all the Villa info and what was on offer in the local area, including some delicious food and wine recommendations. We were made to feel very welcome and the Villa owner came back a couple of hours later to take us the supermarket to get stocked up. He had also left us a welcome bottle of wine and the outdoor bbq set up and ready to go!
We didn’t hire a car as there is so much on your door step here, plus we didn’t actually need to leave the Villa! Walk down to Mlini, which is beautiful, quiet and feels like a secret place (!) where you can catch boats to lots of places, we went to Cavtat Dubrovnik, Locrum from here. We took advantage of some pre-arranged trips with Ana and Bozidar too. I also pre-arranged a private chef for the evening to mark my parents Birthday with Ana and I highly recommend this!! It was amazing, I was a bit worried it might be a bit stiff and formal but far from it, the food was amazing and the chef’s assistant was really personable, English was brilliant and he waited the table; everyone loved it! (Plus the kitchen was spotless when they left, so nothing to do.)
I could go on and on about the beautiful beaches, crystal clear sea, lovely people, relaxed vibe, fantastic food but I suggest you find out for yourself! Thank you Croatia Gems for making this so easy to organise and for me getting loads of kudos for looking like I’d spent hours researching and organising a memorable family holiday!!! Clare” June 2016
“Hi Helen, Lovely holiday, great place, Miro was very welcoming, helpful and kept the pool nice and clean. Ana your rep was efficient and sorted out the transport at the airport, gave us useful information about the area. We had an enjoyable stay and would recommend staying here. Kind regards” Stephanie, August 2015
“Hi Helen, We had a lovely week at Villa Anna Maria- greeted by the owner who is charming and friendly! The house was spacious.. overall perfect for us. Visited Dubrovnik and surrounding areas but as we are quite independent didn’t make use of your rep there . Thanks! Kind regards,” Caroline, July 2015
“Hi Helen, We had a great time, thank you, despite my husband having an accident whilst sailing before we left! The villa was fantastic, and Miro, the owner, couldn’t have been more friendly or helpful. The villa is very comfortable and the view from the terrace is amazing.
We made good use of Nikolina, the concierge, and again she was absolutely fantastic, going way beyond what was expected in her efforts to help us. We had some unusual requests for her, including having sutures removed, but she was extremely efficient and helpful.
All in all it was a success. Kind regards,” Debra, August
“Hi Helen, We had a really fantastic holiday in Mlini. We loved the villa, the views were superb, it was well appointed and it had a good number of seating areas all around. Miro (owner) was very helpful and picked us up from the supermarket and fetched some groceries for us on another occasion….We really have fallen for Croatia and having done the Dubrovnik Riviera and Split we would be interested to hear where else you would recommend as our next destination?? With Best Regards” Steve, August
“We all had a great time, thanks. Loved the villa, clean, comfortable. lots of space and spectacular views. Mlini was a perfect location – relaxed place and lots of local families as well as tourists. We really liked Croatia and found the people very friendly with excellent English. Thanks for all your help with finding and organising a very special holiday for us all” Lucia & Mark
