Cozied up to a rugged slope, Villa Toni sits nestled in a string of the finest private villas in the elite area of Štikovica. Just a twenty-minute drive from the bustling Dubrovnik, it envelops you in an ambiance of being away from it all, knit of quietude, privacy, and the turquoise blues of the Adriatic Sea.
The clean and modern lines of the villa’s exterior hold five double bedrooms which can comfortably accommodate up to ten guests. The soothing, neutral color palette of the interiors reminds you to indulge in the views of the graceful Zaton bay cloaked in dramatic karst hills. An abundance of cozy details scattered around makes every moment a chance for relaxation.
Upon setting foot in Villa Toni, you will immediately know that it was designed by a person and for a person. And the person is no one other than Toni Šunjić, the center back of the Russian Premier League soccer team Dynamo Moscow! A sportsman with a strict regime, Toni translated his vision of an ideal retreat into Villa Toni. From the stand-out pool with Jacuzzi to the delicate scents of lavender, between the inviting common areas and the comfortable private spaces, Toni’s vision leads straight to the idyllic unwinding in a beautiful corner of the Earth.
A Walkthrough Villa Toni:
Villa Toni spreads over 350 square meters of indoors and 120 square meters of surrounding outdoors. The modern residence crowns the property that terraces down to the road where a garage with two parking spaces is an added bonus if you are travelling by car.
Fronting the house, the expansive terrace lined in stone is this villa’s definite drawcard. You’re likely to spend much of your time here, whether sipping wine in the lovely lounge area or dipping in the 8×3.5m pool with Jacuzzi. With direct views of the bay below, the terrace is the heart and soul of the property.
Backing it, the ground floor of the residence feels like its natural extension. The open-concept common area comprises a fully-equipped kitchen, dining and living area.
High ceilings and large glass sliding doors make these spaces wonderfully bright and airy and their light colour palette soothes to the senses, accentuated by the back wall of lush greens and a ceiling painted like the sky. Fix up a snack, then sit back in leather armchairs to watch a feisty game of soccer on the immensely large LCD screen in the living area. Still, expect to feel compelled to do most of your cooking outdoors.
Cooking and eating together is a very local thing to do, so to the side of the living room, a shaded terrace features an open kitchen with a fireplace, outdoor stove and lavatory, and a dining table for 10. Another large screen TV here ensures that nothing important goes missed. Facing a wall of carob and olive trees, the quality time on this terrace is to be enjoyed in complete privacy.
Villa Toni has five bedrooms. One sits behind a discreet passage which backs the kitchen and conceals a small service area with a laundry room and a guest toilette.
The other four bedrooms are on the upper floor. All bedrooms share a comfortable design, have an en suite bathroom with a walk-in shower and a private balcony. With large closets, vanity tables and all the amenities you might need, they easily grow on you like a second home.
Overall, Villa Toni feels remote, just perfect for unwinding and focusing on yourself and your loved ones. Still, you are a mere downhill stroll from the pebbly Štikovica beach and minutes away from several highly praised local restaurants. Dubrovnik is twenty-minutes away by road, and lovely destinations such as Elafiti islands, Pelješac peninsula or Korčula Island make for great boating daytrips.
To explore the region, venture to Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Kotor in Montenegro. Just a phone call away during your entire stay at Villa Toni, your Villa Manager can assist you with crafting everything about your time here – from private chefs and massages, to restaurant reservations and superb regional experiences.
