Carpe Diem is a very special historical property with bags of charm and beautifully decorated so that immediately on arrival one feels calm and relaxed - a perfect holiday destination. It is right in the old town but the historic thick walls mean that heat and sound barely penetrate - a lovely oasis just steps from wonderful restaurants and the attractions of the harbour. Nikola is a wonderful host, one feels privileged to become a small part of the family's history through one's stay here. We had a stressful year and this holiday was exactly what we needed.
This is a newly renovated apartment in the center of Kocula's old town. It is within walking distance of the harbor, all of the restaurants, bars and shops, yet tucked away so that it is not noisy.
On the first floor, there is a bedroom with a queen sized bed and a good sized bathroom with a shower and toilet. The second floor has an identical queen sized bed, a bathtub in the room and a toilet in a separate bathroom. The third floor has a small terrace and a beautiful kitchen with a large dining table. The fourth floor has a family room with a tv and couch (which I believe opens up into a bed). The decor was beautifully done and made us feel at home. The place was very comfortable for 4 people to stay. It can definitely accommodate 1-2 more people.
The owners were such lovely people! They greeted us at the harbor to walk us to the apartment, made suggestions for places to eat, offered to take us on their glass bottom boat (which we couldn't do because the weather was bad), and made a special trip to bring us a bottle of homemade wine!
My only complaints were that the wifi didn't work very well and we had some issues getting hot water for the shower. But these were very minor issues that didn't ruin or greatly impact our experience.
I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone staying in Korcula!!
