Delightful 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4/5, stone cottage, first line to the water. Well equipped and nicely decorated cottage with air conditioning and huge terrace in small village. Bus, taxis and ferry all within a few hundred metres.
This is a charming old cottage, at least 200 years old, with grey stone walls a metre thick. It is nicely furnished and equipped for year round living for 4/5 people. The air conditioning units can act as heating in the winter.
The front double bedroom has great views over the Verige Straits and you can lie in bed and watch the dawn light up the mountains on the other side of the straits. It has a nice little balcony to enjoy breakfast from and watch the ships and boats go by.
The other bedroom is a comfortable twin and there is a good size bathroom between the two rooms. It has a shower, basin, lavatory, bidet and washing machine.
There is a fold up Z bed which can just fit in the at the end of the bed in the double bed room and would be ok for a child
The ground floor is open plan with a comfortable seating area, dining area, with a partition to the very well equipped kitchen. There is a DVD player and monitor, a small library and games for a rainy day.
The terrace is equipped with large wooden table and chairs, sun loungers, deck chairs and multiple cushions. During the hot summer months the terrace is shaded and a wonderful place to spend your days, eating, relaxing, reading, watching the world go by, sunbathing and having a bbq if you wish. There is also an extra lavatory that can only be accessed from the terrace.
Lepetane is the ferry port for crossing the Veriga Straits so if you are looking for calm and tranquil then this may not be suitable for you - here is what one of my guests said last year "Before we booked here we were made aware of the fact that the cottage overlooks the ferry port and to expect a bit of noise. You can hear the ferries but I have to say it was absolutely not a problem for us and I would actually say it was nice because it was something to watch while we sat on the sun terrace."
Here is what another guest has said "Sian was a pleasure to deal with and very helpful throughout. She was very honest before booking and said there will be some noise from the nearby ferry terminal which runs through the night in summer and that some people may not like this. Yes the terminal is close but the noise wasn't an issue for anyone in our group, as someone who has lived in city centres, near busy roads, train tracks and near an airport flightpath the noise was nowhere near as loud as these. I would describe it as more of a gentle hum when outside and the ferry is running but not loud enough so you have to shout to have a conversation. The ferry did run through the night but the frequency was only every hour after about 11pm. The noise certainly didn't keep anyone awake at night and was barely noticeable when inside. Having the ferry terminal that close is also a great and inexpensive way to quickly get across to the other side of the bay and as we were driving from Croatia it made the drive time to Lepetane considerable shorter. its also free if on foot."
So I like everyone to be happy and you can decide if this is right for you .

Weitere wichtige Infos
There are so many places to visit and details and information brochures can be found in the house. I will also send prospective guests a house book I have written which points out some great restaurants, beaches and other places to visit.
Please be considerate of the neighbours - many of them have to rise early to go to work so we have to think of them. Please do not play music on the terrace or smoke in the house.
I am a performance coach living in the West Country in the UK by the sea. I live and work from my homes either in the UK or in Montenegro. As I am single, and my son is grown up and left home, I enjoy the freedom of going out to Montenegro at short notice and chilling out. In the summer I love working from my waterfront terrace, watching the world go by and having friends to stay.
I have also lived in Montenegro so have many local as well as ex pat friends and find it such a friendly and beautiful place to spend time. I love to swim and paddle board and there are plenty of spots both in the Boka and on the Adriatic that are perfect for it.
The local produce is fabulous - Montenegro is a real meat eating country, which is probably why they are so tall! I love to cook and BBQ and you can buy beautifully marinated meats in the local supermarkets to just throw on the BBQ. Also, because it is in the Mediterannean the vegetables and fruits are fantastic too - so depending on what season you are there there always seems to be a glut of something.
We love to drink the local wine and beer which are not only very quaffable, but also very good value.
I enjoy having people to stay and showing them the sites and I have had very good experiences of people renting my cottage. Many have returned for repeat visits so they much like it too. I like people to feel at home and have tried to make staying at the cottage a comfortable and restful experience.
