“The villa was first class – faultless in fact – the resort & surrounding area was beautiful – beach is 3 mins across the street so we liked the location a lot”


This seaside villa, Dubrovnik Riviera, is in an absolutely fantastic location in one of our favourite places on the Dubrovnik Riviera.


Villa Tamarind, a seaside villa, Dubrovnik Riviera, is one of our long standing villas, and is located in the pretty village of Mlini Bay, a short wander from the various  beaches in Mlini Bay, a varied  selection of  Mlini restaurants and a quaint little harbour. Lovely old stone houses with terracotta roofs and fishing boats give complete the picture.

From the harbour you can water taxi into the Old Town of Dubrovnik and back from May to October, and you can also water taxi to Cavtat Bay and Plat Bay, or hop on a boat to explore the lovely local Elafiti Islands off the coast. Villa Tamarind is just 10 minutes drive from the stunning Old Town of Dubrovnik which is a must-see, and it’s easy to get to many other little sea side villages along the coast too..

Mlini Bay is one of the more desirable bays on the Dubrovnik Riviera and a lovely location to spend a holiday. It nestles in a gorgeous, pine shaded bay – with a promenade all around the bay, beautiful turquoise beaches, and a really nice atmosphere, it is the kind of place you can easily just potter around in for a week quite contentedly. It isn’t necessary to hire a car as everything is on your doorstep! And different age groups can easily have their own independence. Everyone is delighted with Mlini…

There is a small grocery store, ATM and bakery close to the villa, with a post office,  bank and a large supermarket and other shops about 1km away. There are also regular bus lines to Dubrovnik or Cavtat stop close to the house.

Seaside Villa Dubrovnik Riviera – Inside, the villa has everything you need – airy living room with a satellite TV provides for a perfect venue in which to relax. The sleeping arrangements are flexible, with the two twin bedded rooms being able to be used as doubles if required. The villa is very homely with lots of interesting souvenirs from the villa owner’s sea captain days and travels. The well equipped kitchen will cater to the needs of those with serious cooking aspirations or there is a large stone BBQ outside. Those who are on holiday to escape every day kitchen chores will enjoy the proximity of several restaurants and taverns….

Outside there are pleasant gardens and shady places around the grounds to curl up with a good book or glass of local wine. There is a nice pool area and even a summer house perfect for a card game with the kids when the sun gets too hot.

As a seaside villa Dubrovnik, there are lots of Things to do on the Dubrovnik Riviera like Hiring a Chef for your Villa, taking a Walking Tour of the Old Town of Dubrovnik, going on a Sights & Bites Tour, Wine Tasting in Dubrovnik or taking a trip to Korcula Island, taking an Excursion to the famous Old Town of Mostar, Exploring the Filming Locations of the Games of Thrones Series in Dubrovnik,  Island Hopping around Dubrovnik’s own little Elafiti Islands!

Villa Tamarind Map, Mlini Bay, Dubrovnik Riviera



All in all, we had a fantastic holiday.

The villa is lovely and very well cared for by the very friendly and helpful owners. It feels more like a home than a rental, and was very well equipped. This was much appreciated after many rentals where only the essentials are provided.

Mlini itself is perfectly located and the villa itself is very well positioned just a short stroll from the sea. We took full advantage of the ferry service to Dubrovnik, which takes around 20 minutes, and is absolutely the best way to travel there. It was also very quick and easy to get an Uber. Cavtat is easily accessible by ferry in the other direction. There are several options for watersports and boat trips, from either Mlini, Cavtat or Dubrovnik.

I unreservedly recommend this villa, Mlini and Croatia!

I’m so pleased we were able to book with you, and I appreciated all the information you provided and being able to talk through the booking easily with you. We will certainly come to you first when we return to Croatia -thank you!

Kind regards,

MP” August/Sept 2021

“Hi Helen,

 We had a great time thanks.

The villa was great, Pavo and his wife were very helpful and very nice.

The restaurants we liked best were:

Konoba Lanterna opposite the harbour (for dinner)

Bistro Café Bar G (for breakfast and dinner)

Restaurant Puntizela – very nice under the pine trees (lunch and dinner)

Also, Damien at the boat and jet-ski rental place was great too.

Generally good all round!

Many thanks,

James” August 2020


“Dear Helen,

Our holiday was wonderful.

We were met at the airport and taken to Villa Tamarind, where “Ana” and the owners met us. They were still tidying and cleaning after the previous visitors. (It was only 09:30).

They allowed us to leave our luggage and “Ana” the representative, took us into the town
and showed us where to get refreshments. Her husband also appeared and they gave us
lots of really useful information and we exchanged mobile numbers.

We received a text message when the villa was ready and we had a tour of the facilities, which were excellent.
The villa was amazing. We kept finding new parts, right up to the day we left.

We were left fresh fruit, bottled water and wine in the fridge, as well as some home made liquor. We were made aware of how to use the oven and dishwasher, as well as where to find all the essentials. There was a slight problem with a shower, which the owners dealt with immediately.

Ana organised a brilliant trip to Mlijet, meeting us both before and after our journey.
We should have consulted Ana for our “Three island trip”, which was less brilliant. Ana also organised an evening at home with a chef and assistant cooking for us. We felt really special.

We easily caught buses to visit Dubrovnik and the surrounding area. The town of Mlini had easily accessible bars and restaurants. Everyone we met was very friendly and all the food was excellent.

 There was ample room in the villa and plenty to do both locally and within a bus ride. Ana kept in contact and so we felt very reassured and very well looked after. We missed Ana before we left as she was helping another family. I’d like to send a thank you to her, so are you please able to provide an address that I can use?

It was a brilliant holiday. Thank you

From all The Doyles” June 2016

“Dear Helen,

We really enjoyed our Croatian holiday. The airport pick up worked well and Ana and the owners of the villa were at the villa to greet us and tell us all about the place. The villa was very well situated for walks, beaches, restaurants, bars and shops. We took up two of your excursions:  the wine tasting and the island hopping….we appreciated the individual attention as we were a group of 6 and enjoyed the experiences.

Overall a very relaxing holiday and Ana could not have been more helpful and friendly.
Thank you

Best wishes, Linda” July 2016

“Hi Helen

We had a great time thank you – felt relaxed from day 1. Fab villa, location, friendly people and super weather. Really nice villa owners as well, so thanks.

“Hi Helen,
My daughter Nicky has forwarded your email to me regarding the villa ‘Tamarind’ in Croatia.
We enjoyed our holiday immensely, it was the first time we had visited Croatia & it was interesting to see how different it was to the rest of Europe, with the stunning landscape.
We were fascinated to see the mountains that swept down to the sea & enjoyed many boat trips to islands & of course, Dubrovnik.

The villa was wonderful, clean & well equipped, with plenty of places to sit separately & together.
The Games room was an added bonus and we spent some evenings by the barbecue or just having takeaway pizza in there.

The villa accommodation was spacious, plenty of room for our party of 5 adults. 

The surrounding area was lovely, shops & restaurants within easy walking distance & the evening walks down to the harbour were a must.  Also a walk round the bay to Kupari was fascinating for people interested in the history of the conflict with Serbia.

The restaurants were superb, with a high standard of cuisine at very reasonable prices. The staff were friendly & helpful & spoke good English.  The excursions & boat trips were plentiful & we had a marvellous time on the island of Lokrum, for example. We also enjoyed a Wine Tasting trip, which involved an accompanied tour some distance away, in the vineyards & a tasting on site.

The villa owners were friendly & helpful, visiting daily to attend to the pool, without being obtrusive.  Our best thanks go to Ana, our rep from Croatia gems, she was superb, always on hand or a phone call away.  Ana organised the Wine tasting & her local knowledge added greatly to our enjoyment.  She even solved a dental emergency & was available for any advice on restaurants, places of interest etc

We were delighted with the service of Croatia gems and have recommended you to all our friends & family.

“Hello Helen, Happy to comment! We had a lovely holiday – the villa was really well equipped and comfortable; we were really happy just to chill around the pool some days. We found plenty of place to eat out in Mlini itself and didn’t have to travel far at all. Whilst the water taxi to Dubrovnik is fun, we found that the local bus transport was very efficient, scenic and cheap. We also found a nice beach just 15 minutes walk away. Regards, Katherine” July 2014

“Hello to all at Croatia Gems, Just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic 2 weeks in Croatia. The villa was first class – faultless in fact – and the resort and surrounding area was beautiful. Dubrovnik is stunning. Everything went very smoothly regarding airport transfers etc so thank you for assistance with that. Best wishes, Dave S (and the rest of the travelling party)” 2013

“We had a great time in Croatia. We liked Mlini and the villa we stayed in was extremely comfortable and probably above our expectations in most respects. As we were a party of 4 (two couples) the villa was pretty spacious for us. We did some boat tours and also some car excursions further afield but overall you didn’t need a car for this villa location. Dubrovnik was perfect at the time we went, busy but not overrun I guess it gets a little overcrowded in July/August. The other thing we liked was staying a few miles outside Dubrovnik which for us was perfect as we away from all the tourist hubbub but close enough to take the bus or boat in when we wanted…. the beach is 3 mins across the street so we liked the location a lot!”  R and S Currie 2011

“We had a brilliant time. Every part of the service offered by Croatiagems went like clockwork from the booking, to the transfer from the airport, to the standard of accommodation. We loved the country and of course the weather. The people we met were very helpful and friendly, we enjoyed good food and wine – so all told a great experience. Thank you.” Lisa 2012
