Hubby and I had 4 nights in Dubrovnik at the start of October. We flew EasyJet from Edinburgh and stayed at Villa Klaic which is a guesthouse outside the old town. The guesthouse owner's son picked us up from the airport (at a charge of 21 Euros) which was very welcome given that we had left home at 3.15am.
The accommodation was excellent. It was simple but very clean and well looked after, with the added bonus of a small pool and free draught beer. Breakfast was a cold buffet of fresh fruit, cereal, yoghurt, bread, cold meats and cheese plus fruit juice and coffee. The accommodation is 500 stairs up from the old town (it took about 10 minutes to walk down and 25 to walk back) but this gave us a fantastic view from our balcony.
Eating out was relatively cheap and there was plenty of choice. Two large pizzas plus a beer and a wine typically cost us around £15-£17. We ate in various places but particularly enjoyed Taj Mahal which serves Bosnian cuisine and Barba for amazing seafood at lunchtime.
The old town is car free and almost all of the streets are little more than alleyways which are too narrow for vehicles so it is a place to walk. There is lots to see in the way of old buildings and museums. We walked the walls which took us about 2 hours; the timing of this should be worked round the cruise ships as their passengers tend to go round the walls in the morning. We also went up to the top of the hill in the cable car, which gave us spectacular views down onto the whole of Dubrovnik, and we then walked down the hill. We didn't manage out to any of the islands but we did have a half day of sea kayaking which took us round Lokrum.
We stayed in Cavtat a few years ago and took one of the little boats over to Dubrovnik a couple of times.
Your accommodation sounds lovey although it would probably take me double your time to climb 500 steps
If you want to visit some city like Dubrovnik (with see and mountain) I recommend MAKARSKA, tourist city (400 km from DubroVnik) if you want a quiet places I recommend BaskaVoda, this is small tourist town, and you can sleep under the sky if you have a tempt, both city is under the mountain and see (of course
