Due to the central location, Mediterranean climate and previously cheap property prices, there are a lot of apartments and villas in Montenegro which are people’s second homes. And although owners might enjoy their homes for a few weeks of the year, they’re empty for the rest of it.
Which is great for you!
Why? Because these people like to rent their villas and apartments out while they’re not there to people like you. So you get the use of someone’s cared-for home while on your holiday.
These homes are usually fully equipped with everything you’d have in your own home including tv, dvd, washing machine and fully equipped kitchens. Not to mention they often have pools, barbecues and outdoor living areas.
You can find everything from apartment complexes to villas with private pools to waterside stone cottages like the ones in the picture above.
It's essential that you apply early on these. The best places will start to get booked for summer straight after Christmas!
So where can you find these holiday rentals in Montenegro?
Booking.com has a lot of accommodation options in Montenegro. In fact, it’s one of Montenegro’s favourite ways to advertise property. You can enter your requirements and vacation dates and it’ll show you a broad range of options that match your criteria… couldn’t be easier!
The downside is you could spend a long time looking through properties but you often have a very favourable cancellation policy and you can make a reservation on the spot when you find a place you like.
Home Away is a really popular place to find apartments and villas for rent in Montenegro.
They have a lot of places but unfortunately their filtering system isn't as good as Booking.com's, meaning you have to wade through a lot of places to find what you're looking for.
But you can sort the results by price, rating, number of bedrooms, popularity and special offers, which makes it easier.
The reason I recommend Home Away is they're popular with apartment owners from the UK. You'll find some really nice places on here that are second homes or investment properties where you can spend your stay in comfort.
Unlike Booking.com, you can't reserve on the spot. You'll need to send a request for each property you're interested in and wait to hear back from the owner. My tip is to send several and then choose from the ones you get a reply from.
It's also very popular with foreign property owners in Montenegro and they have around 200 properties to choose from.
Their filtering system is much better, so if you only want to see properties with pools, you can filter and see just those.
Almost all of their properties are on the coast, so if you're looking for a place inland, Booking.com will be a better place to search.
Book your accommodation anywhere in the world through any of the search boxes on our site and we'll make a donation towards sterilising stray animals in Montenegro.
It costs you nothing, and you get the biggest selection and lowest prices guaranteed. It's a win-win!
