Discover Authentic Croatia at Villa Ibiscus

Property of the Week: Dubrovnik’s rich history and scenic beaches are right on your doorstep.

By Serina Tatham

Those looking to escape the everyday need look no further than Villa Ibiscus. Located in Dubrovnik, a city with a rich culture, a long history and beautiful Adriatic beaches, the property sits in the heart of one of Europe’s most treasured destinations.

Villa Ibiscus is just a 20-minute walk from the old city and mere steps from the beach, so owners will have the best of Dubrovnik right at their fingertips.

Comprised of three floors and sprawling over 7,500 sq ft, Villa Ibiscus exudes a timeless feel. It is built in the classic Mediterranean style with blue shutters and terracotta tiles – an ode to traditional Croatian architecture. But this isn’t any old villa. It includes all the mod-cons you would expect from a super prime property, including state-of-the-art tech, central cooling and heating units, and smart TVs.

The main entrance is located at the highest point on the plot. Upon entering, the floor-to-ceiling glass walls hit you with unparalleled views of the Adriatic, the island of Lokrum, and the picturesque roof tiles of St James Church.

The upper floor totals 1,162 sq ft and comprises a kitchen, dining room and living room. A harmonious marriage between traditional and modern design, the villa is charming (think visible beams, decorative shutters and fireplaces).

Inside/outside living is the natural theme. Living space flows seamlessly through multiple sliding patio doors. This part of the villa is surrounded by four terraces as well as lush gardens. There is also an outdoor dining area with summer kitchen and barbeque, an ideal spot for entertaining and alfresco dining.

On the middle floor, three of the four bedrooms can be found – all ensuite and with their own private terrace. The villa is filled with local artwork, and the master bedroom is no exception. Dominated by a glass clothes stand akin to a modern art installation, it also features a lounge, a work area, and a spacious bathroom.

On the ground floor, the fourth bedroom consists of a lounge area, a work area, an ensuite and a terrace with direct access to the garden. On this floor there is also a massage room with Finnish sauna, a wine cellar – Croatia has a rich winemaking history and some award-winning wines – and a kitchenette and working space for the caretaker.

Aside from the numerous terraces that wrap around the villa, Villa Ibiscus is surrounded by lush Mediterranean vegetation (think pines and cypresses). Small-terraced gardens play host to olive trees while pomegranates, figs, jasmine and lavender cascade to the foot of the villa with paths and promenades. There are also several meditation corners where you can find some respite after a busy day.

An infinity pool sits below ground level along with a sun deck with beautiful views over the sea and Lokrum. Whether inside or out, the magnificent views are offered from every angle: panoramas of Dubrovnik’s old city, the port, and the shimmering sea.

Villa Ibiscus is available price on request. For more information, contact Katarina Hrdalo,, +385 984 283 62, or visit
