Holiday accommodation: Self-catering rental apartment Mimosa on the shore of Kotor Bay in Montenegro

Guestbook Mimosa

  • Dear maaike, We spent very good moments around of kotor. Your house is ideal for the activities which we had programmed.
    Kind regards, Guillaume Lepin, France

  • We enjoyed our time in Montenegro.
    Kind regards, Amy James, UK

  • Hallo Maaike, dankjewel voor het terugstorten van de borg. We hebben een hele fijne vakantie gehad. Mimosa is een fijn en comfortabel huisje en Montengro is adembenemend mooi. We deden vele uitstappen (skadar, Ostrog , Perast, durmitor met de glacial lakes en de tara river,Rose,...) en de buurman Vladimir was een fijne man (we konden zijn wifi en zijn bootje gebruiken, en hij stond ons bij met raad en daad).
    Vele groetjes , Freddy en Lieve Dolfen, Belgium

  • We hebben genoten, het was een mooi appartement. Mooie plaats en erg centraal.
    (translated from Dutch: We have enjoyed ourselves, it is a pretty apartment. Great place and very central.) BVD, Klaas en Alie Uildrks, The Netherlands

  • We hebben enorm genoten. We hopen nog wel eens terug te komen. (translated from Dutch: We have enjoyed ourselves immensely. We hope to be able to return some day.)
    Hartelijke groeten, Ineke Keijzer, The Netherlands

  • The apartment was very clean and comfortable, and a convenient distance from Kotor Old Town without being in the middle of the chaotic nightlife there. We didn't meet Maaike, as she doesn't live locally, and has someone else managing the apartment. We went in November which is off season, and it did get quite cold in the accommodation. From the pictures we thought the apartment was right on the waterfront, but in fact there is a road between the house and the sea, so it would not be a great place to sit and relax outside. Kotor is a beautiful spot, even in winter, and there are lots of lovely places to visit nearby. Recommend the Galion restaurant on the waterfront not far from the apartment.

  • Montenegro is definitely a place to return to. Kotor old town is lovely and we spent many hours watching the world go by while partaking of refreshments. Also spent many happy hours at Stalin beach, a 15 minute drive along the coast from Muo. The mountain drive is fantastic, a must do activity and Perast worth a visit.

    Compared to Kotor, Tivat and land Montenegro were a disappointment. People are friendly and helpful and very welcoming. Mimosa is lovely but not as desirable as website. Therefore incorrect expectations set. We think it would be fairer to prepare guests for the mosquitoes, litter and run-down nature of some of the environment nearby.

    Will definitely come again.
    Tom and Chris Williams, Somerset, UK

  • We love Europe, its cultures, its differences, its civilizations, its land mass and its weather. For all of us, Montenegro has rushed up very high on the list of favourite places it is like the Eurovision Song Contest!

    What not to like? It is a visual paradise, the heavens have graced us with perfect weather, this little country cherishes its history and culture and presents it well; we have lived on the freshest of foods, everyone is sunny, polite and obliging, and from Mimosa everything is easy and possible.

    Montenegro, we love you and shall return. Special thanks to our lovely neighbour, Vladimir, our new friend.
    Hermione, Chris with baby Lester (4 months) and granny Sally, Lincoln, UK

  • This is a very good base for exploring the area by day and walking into Kotor in the evening.
    Ant and Liz, Chester, UK

  • We have had a great time, apartment very good and Kotor town full of good restaurants and shops and very easy to walk to. Supermarket a couple of doors down has most of what you need and plenty of fresh bread and pastries. Only downsides are the mosquitoes and the rubbish in the bay. Otherwise we had a fabulous time. Thank you.
    The Franklin family, Surrey, UK

  • A wonderful holiday in a very comfortable apartment, thank you.
    Janet, Jenny, Lizzie and Ian

  • Perfectly adequate base for a family of four. Flat reasonably well equipped and beds quite comfortable.
    Trevor Batsan, UK

  • A lovely place to stay and Lustica Bay is really worth a visit.
    Alison and James Hogg

  • This place quickly grows on you.
    Gill Gregory, Berkshire, UK

    This is a beautiful area of Montenegro so enjoy, we did!
    Chris Scott, Aberdeenshire, Scotland

  • We enjoyed our stay at Mimosa. Kotor is fine. We climbed the hills around and went to Cetinje, Stari Bar, Ulcinij and so on and had a wonderful week.
    Kind regards, Frank Kroll, Germany

  • Mimosa was fantastic and we loved our stay. It was a very relaxing holiday and I wish I was still there.
    Kind regards, Sophie Dazin, UK

  • We had a wonderful stay at Mimosa. The apartment is great and we like Ikea :)
    Ingo Michael, Germany

  • Translated from German: Very hot and beautiful in the cool apartment. 7-day stay with Laurenz (11), Vincenz (7) and Florenz (2). We enjoyed our stay, swam or toured with the car. Also visited the Tara. We are moving onto Perast now - what a beautiful country. We think that we would like to visit Kotor and Mimosa again in September if possible. Apartment lovely and stylish with a certain "lussigkeit". We had a new cot for our use, thank you, but the baby slept, of course, in the big bed (as that tends to happen!). Very nice, relaxed location, also as a base to tour.
    Ulcinj was completely different: 1-week beach hotel is do-able (but preferably not): Hot, black sand, retro-charm from the 70's, and very Albanian. For the kids it was fine but very busy. We are looking forward to Perast.
    Bernd, Janka, Laurenz, Vincenz, and Florenz Krauss

    Thank you for a nice stay
    Elizabeth and Andrez, Poland and Helen and Mario, Lithuania

  • We enjoyed the whole Kotor bay and staying in the Mimosa apartment.
    Ville-Pekka Lappalainen, Finland

  • Many thanks for the deposit refund. We had a wonderful time in Kotor, and hope to return soon!
    Regards, Gavin Sweeten

  • Een prachtig land met een mooi apartment, welk van alle gemakken is voorzien!
    Hebben zeer veel van Montenegro gezien! Ook veel gewandeld!
    Tip: Ipv een auto te huren met de RED TAXI overal naar toe geweest. De prijs is zeer gunstig, zodat we voor een week auto huren, ons 14 dagen hebben weg laten brengen en/of ophalen. Vraag naar NENO, spreekt goed engels en regelt alles voor je!
    Twee en half week prachtig weer gehad. Constant tussen de 25 en 29 graden en geen regen.
    Een echte aanrader!
    Groetjes, familie Leemans, Dongen, Nederland

  • We had a wonderful time and absolutely loved Mimosa (and Kotor!). I hope we'll have a chance to visit again before too long. Thank you again.
    Mary Dunagan, Ireland

  • The apartment was perfect. We enjoyed it very much.
    Zoltan Horvath, Denmark

  • We hebben het heerlijk gehad in jouw appartement. Fijn appartement met goede uitrusting en alles werkt. We hebben lekker aan de overkant van de weg gezeten bij de grote boom en we zijn veel tochtjes wezen maken... Perfekt is de lokatie, zo dicht bij de oude stad. Jammer vonden we de hele drukke weg voor Mimosa. Prachtig land trouwens... en wat hoog overal ! .. mooie tocht gemaakt naar Lovcen en ook het Klooster van Ostrog hebben we bekeken. Onze telefoons werkten niet in Montenegro. Pas later hoorden we dat we dan een speciale kaart hadden moeten kopen ofzo.. we hebben prepaid telefoons.
    Verder heel fijn gehad.. we zijn nog een paar dagen in Sutomore verbleven en 4 dagen in Dubrovnik. Misschien wel tot volgend jaar! Heel erg bedankt dat alles zo goed verzorgd was!
    Groetjes, Marian, Nederland

  • Enjoyed Mimosa, lovely comfortable apartment. Great boat trip to Perast and our Lady of the Rock (caught a boat from Marina). Really nice day out. Anka arranged two great trips for us, one to the mountains where we had a wonderful lunch and one to Skadar lake. Took Red Taxi into Budva Old town (15 EUR) each way which we thoroughly enjoyed as Budva is really beautiful and clean.
    Galion and Pasteria restaurants were very nice indeed. Would really recommend. Found the busy road and pavements tricky, especially at night. Would be nice to have a proper pavement to walk on. Overall, brilliant holiday. Anka is such a help.
    Lynn and Laurie, Northants; Chris and Tony, Yorkshire, UK

  • I have had five calm and nice days here in Kotor, it's a beautiful place and Montenegro is a truly wonderful country. Next stop Dubrovnik, bye bye Kotor.
    Julie S, Norway

  • We hebben een fijne vakantie doorgebracht in Kotor. Montenegro is een prachtig land. We vonden het zeer de moeite waard en hebben in een korte tijd veel gezien en beleefd. Kotor is mooi en het uitzicht vanuit het huisje is bijzonder. Het appartement is heel comfortabel, goed ingericht, alles wat je nodig hebt is aanwezig en zelfs meer dan dat (t.v., dvd speler, spelletjes, boeken etc.). Het terras voor het appartement is ook een pre. Het is wel jammer dat er een nogal drukke weg voor het terras langs loopt. Omdat er langs de kust veel nieuwbouw gepleegd wordt hadden we nogal last van zwaar bouwverkeer. Hopelijk wordt dat minder wanneer de diverse bouwprojecten afgerond zijn. Anka heeft ons goed geholpen bij het aanmelden bij de politie. Na vier keer een poging gewaagd te hebben ons aan te melden bij "de buren" heeft zij het voor ons op ons verzoek geregeld.
    Vriendelijke groet, Hilda Visser, Nederland

  • Many thanks. We had a great time in Kotor and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Mimosa. We hope to go again some time.
    Graeme Holloway, UK

  • 19Thank you for the deposit. We had a great time in mimosa, great house and great location. Anka was most helpful. Hope to return next year, Cristine, Philip ,Dorothy Oshaughnessy, Ireland

  • We have had a great time here in Kotor. Mimosa is brilliant; a great location and very comfortable (much nicer than our own homes!). Enjoyed clambering up to the forts, wandering around the old town (including beer stops), trips to Cetinje and Budva and revelling with the teenagers in the noisy bars. After a couple of aborted attempts, decided it was definitely to cold for a dip in the water ...
    Graeme and Georgie, East London, UK

  • Many thanks fyet again for an excellent holiday. Its impossible to beat Kotor and the apartment is perfectly located, plus lovely cats and a fabulour neighbour!
    If you can, be sure to eat at the restaurants in Prcanj - superb!
    Carrie and Stephen, Peak District, Derbyshire, UK

  • La maison est vraiment tres agreable.
    la familille Pellerin

  • Dear Maaike, Thank you for a lovely stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Mimosa.
    All the best, Glyn Williams, Rutland, UK

  • Beste Maaike, We hebben genoten in Mimosa. Keurig appartement en een prachtig uitzicht op Kotor. Winkeltje op 20m afstand waar je alle dagelijkse boodschappen kunt krijgen waaronder een 2 liter fles Pivo (bier) voor maar E 1,70! Ook hebben we vele gezellige uurtjes vertoefd op het ruime terras waar we regelmatig een leuk gesprekje konden maken met buurman Vladimir en zijn zoon Petr en dochter Neda die bij hem op vakantie waren. Onze dochters gingen regelmatig met hem vissen aan de oever van de baai aan de overkant van de straat. Ook de poesjes en hond Brita van de andere buren waren zeer populair bij onze kinderen.
    Geweldig mooi land, bergweggetje naar Cetinje zeer aan te bevelen, prachtig uitzicht over de baai, echter niet geschikt voor onervaren automobilisten!
    Verder nog legio andere dingen te ondernemen zoals boottocht over Skadarmeer, plaza ploce ( afgelegen baai met prachtig aangelegde terrassen) 4km voor Budva aan de Adriatische zee, enz. En niet te vergeten het idyllische Kotor zelf op loopafstand met goede restaurants, gezellige nauwe straatjes met winkels en terrasjes.
    In ieder geval is een verblijf in Mimosa in Montenegro zeer aan te bevelen.
    Met vriendelijke groet, Fam. Duijkers, Grubbenvorst, Nederland

  • Beste Maaike, we vonden Mimosa een zeer aangenaam verblijf.
    Met vriendelijke groet, Dries Blanchaert, Belgie

  • Hi Maaike, we enjoyed our stay at mimosa very much! You have really a fantastic and sweet apartment with an amazing "12 o'clock Kotor view". I'm sure, that this wasn't our last stay at mimosa....maybe next year?!
    Thank you for the return of the refund. I wish your a great time.
    Kind regards, Michael Lambart, Germany

  • Heerlijk dag gehad in het prachtige Kotor! Het uitzicht is in een woord geweldig. 'S avonds gezellig Pivo drinken op het terras en nadenken over de fantastische ervaringen die wij hebben mee gemaakt. Een tip voor toekomstige bezoekers die op zoek zijn naar een goed restaurant: La Pasteria! Goede bediening en geweldig eten. Montenegro - Kotor is zeker een van de mooiste plaatsen waar ik ben geweest! Daarom zullen we proberen zo snel mogelijk terug te komen - het liefst in de zomer natuurlijk!
    Angela Schouten & Siljan Rienstra, Nederland

  • Dear Maaike, Thanks for returning the deposit so quickly - much appreciated! You have a lovely apartment & we enjoyed our stay very much although there was a slight mix up at the beginning as Anka didn't turn up to give us the key and my cell phone wouldn't work in Montenegro. Luckily your very kind neighbour Vladimir let us use his phone and Anka's husband arrived soon afterwards so all was well in the end.
    Very Best Wishes, Jane Simmonds, UK

  • Bedankt voor het terug storten van de borg. We hebben erg genoten in je huis. Prachtig gemoderniseerd en heerlijk koel. Kotor is erg mooi en gezellig. Met de auto naar het nationaal park Levice geweest. Budva ook erg mooi.
    We hebben kennis gemaakt met je buurman Vladimir, een gastvrije en erg vriendelijke man. Konden zelfs zijn bootje of fiets wel lenen. Je kunt redelijk Engels met hem spreken. Wat opviel was dat de mensen erg vriendelijk zijn en gastvrij. Zijn zelfs nog met hem op de laatste dag een paar huizen wezen kijken. Wat ons opvalt is dat de bevolking erg aardig is en behulpzaam. We hebben in een woord: GENOTEN!!! Het reizen met Thomascook(belgie) ging trouwens ook goed. We zijn vanuit Brussel vertrokken en hadden een directe vlucht op Tivat. We hopen nog een keer terug te komen in dit heerlijke land.
    Groeten, Titia Kuipers, Franeker, Nederland.

  • Thanks for such an enjoyable stay. We were here on business but the apartment turned it into more of a holiday! It's idylic and perfectly positioned for a summer vacation. The views are outstanding! Looking forward to coming back to stay very soon; more pleasure than business next time. (And Anka is great!)
    Thanks so much, Carrie and Stephen Mathieson, Peak District, Derbyshire, UK

  • Tres agreable sejour passe en famille pendant la semaine de Carnaval. Magnifiques paysages, journees ensollellees, belle maison de caractere aux portes de la belle ville medievale de Kotor. Il doit etre tres plaisant de sejourner dans cette region en ete egalement.
    Yves & Elizabeth Guilloux , Bretagne, France

  • We absolutely loved our stay, fittings included. The sitting is idyllic. We'll definitely be back in spring/summer preferably. In the meantime I have kind of ?sold? your apartment to other friends. We enjoyed our stay and will go back again.
    Danke je wel, Elsona Eagolli, Albania

  • Thank you for prompt refund. We have had an enjoyable stay in your very comfortable apartment with great views of Kotor and the bay. The wall looks spectacular lit up at night and Kotor Stari Grad is a very lively place both in the day and in the evening.
    Had a hectic but enjoyable holiday. There is so much to see in Montenegro. Kotor is very beautiful and very lively in the evenings at the weekend. Comfortable apartment, welcome to IKEA living, better then the brochure. The black and white cat is very friendly and likes to jump onto your lap for a snooze. We have named him/her Joey. We will come to Montenegro again soon. Enjoyed the coast and particularly Przno fishing village near Budva. Excellent food at restaurant Blanche.
    Jane Yeomans, UK

  • Lovely apartment. We enjoyed the IKEA fittings!! Enjoyed Montenegro lifestyle. The weather has been good too. Good wine! To future Drivellers in Mimosa: Please be good to the cats that sit on the terrace - they are very well behaved. The black and white cat is very sweet and likes to sit on your lap. We are very sad to leave him. I also cared for a kitten that had bad eyes. Again sad to leave it to an unknown fate. Kotor is great, not too big or small. We particularly liked Perast.
    Best wishes, Gail Lithgow, UK note from Maaike: I have had the local cats sterilised so we have no more kittens on the terrace>/i>

  • What can we say?! What a wonderful week we have had in your special apartment - Mimosa. The weather has been perfect, Anka has been invaluable in telling us the good places to visit and organising taxis, etc. We will surely come again to this beautiful country.
    Jenny Westaway and Kathy Leebrook, Naseby, Northhampton, UK.

  • Hello Maaike, First of all congratulations for that really nice and tastefully furnished appartement. We enjoyed our stay very much. Thanks for refunding the deposit.
    Greets, Alois Proll, Austria

  • We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mimosa. The apartment is very comfortable and very well equipped. Anka helped organise a wonderful trip into the mountains for us, the views were breathtaking. Kotor town has given us many delightly days and evenings with many good meals enjoyed in the excellent restaurants.
    We loved the patio and were adopted by the local cats, as we breakfasted out there every day. Kotor city was fantastic especially seeing it lit up at night when we arrived. Superb views! Definitely want to come back some day!
    Best wishes, Lindsey, Scotland

  • Dernier petit-dejeuner, devant cette magnifique vue de Kotor. Un tres agreable sejour dans un appartement tres joliment agence avec de tres belles photos. Sincerement, un revisite!
    Jean-Charles Calligaro, Rembouillet, France.

  • J'ai passer un superbe sejour, Galia Calligaro, France.

  • We zijn zaterdag teruggekeerd van een heerlijke vakantie. We vonden Kotorbaai erg mooi en Mimosa een erg fijn huisje. Mooi opgeknapt en fijn om in te logeren, ook met het hete weer. Anka was trouwens aardig en behulpzaam.
    Thanks for a good stay! Pieter Swinkels, the Netherlands

  • We had a wonderfuly stay at Mimosa. Would love to come again soon!
    The sea is beautiful and lovely to swim in.
    Sincerely, Angela Schouten and Siljan Rienstra, the Netherlands

  • Lovely apartment with a great view! We enjoyed our stay here. Maybe someday we will be able to stay here again! Kotor is beautiful!
    Sincerely, Lynne Michels, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, and Mindy Michels and Levi Michels, Tirana, Albania

  • Thank you for the prompt refund of full deposit. We had a wonderful and comfortable stay at Mimosa. The scenary and views are breath taking. The apartment is in a prime position for the new Marina. Clearance of all the rubbish around the old Hotel Fjord started on Monday this week and many people we spoke to believe work on the development will start this winter. Sandra was very welcoming upon our arrival and checked with us twice during our stay to make sure everything was OK. We will be happy to recommend Mimosa to our friends and family who wish to visit Montenegro in the future.
    Kind regards, Chris and Linda Fuller, UK

  • What a beautiful holiday I had at Mimosa!!! Apart from the very neat and cute house I enjoyed the absolute breathtaking surroundings of the lake at my front door snugly in between high mountains, shops and cafes at walking distance all complete with an abundance of sunshine is something I'll never forget.
    Elly Bosman, the Netherlands
