This apartment was our favorite place to stay out of all 4 places we visited in Croatia. The owners were so nice, accommodating and genuinely personable people.
The downstairs was roomy, modern and comfortable. They had a nice bottle of wine, water and fruit in the refrigerator and they supplied the bathroom with items you may need; not all the apartments we stayed at took care of their renters like Antonio and his fiance! It was in a great location as well.
Owner Antonio & Fiancee were exceptional Hosts! Apartment is truly extremely modern and comfortable, very well equipped, extremely clean, what you see in the photos is exatly what you get! Bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept on. Kitchen was well equipped. Air Con if required. Perfect position right in the middle of Old Town, 2 min walk to all Restaurants, Bakery, Supermarkets, Bottle Shops, Beaches, Ferry at the bottom of the stairs. Antonio was always accomodating and quick to answer any correspondence or requests before we arrived and when we were there he was always available to answer any questions that we might have including advice on what to do whilst we were there. We 4 would highly recommend a stay in this Lovely Apartment, an experience we all enjoyed very much!!
My husband and I rented Antonio's apartment for a few days in September during our travels throughout Croatia. The apartment is exactly as the pictures appear. It has been recently renovated and is in excellent condition. It is a 2 minute walk from the ferry and close to many local restaurants and shopping within Korcula.
Antonio is a wonderful host and was great to work with. He provided us with all the instructions needed before we arrived to ensure we had a smooth arrival. He also provided us with his contact information so we could call him when we arrived in Korcula. He took the time to show us around the apartment and how to use all the amenities. Antonio lives on the first floor of the apartment complex so he is always available if needed.
The apartment was well equipped with everything you would need when it comes to the bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, and living room, including a washing machine, towels and a hair dryer. We utilized everything the apartment had to offer.
Since we travel to Europe often, we find it to be more comfortable to stay in an apartment then a Hotel. Some of the main things we look for in an apartment is location to all main attractions, cleanliness and how new the apartment. This apartment had all the things we look for when renting in Europe.
As I mentioned, Antonio is a wonderful host and I would highly recommend any who is interested in vacationing in Korcula to rent from Antonio. I know you will enjoy you stay. One last thing to remember is to ask Antonio for recommendations on places to eat. He provided us with several great options and we enjoyed each of them.
We stayed three days on Korcula at the Palace Ismaili Apartment.
First of all, Antonio M is a terrific host! When we arrived, he gave us an enthusiastic and thorough orientation to his remodeled modern palace, which he'd equipped with some nice amenities. He recommended a wonderful restaurant that wasn't in the guidebooks. Any time that we needed help, he was available.
The apartment is cenrally located, and we loved walking around the beautiful Old Town of Korcula, eating at restaurants overlooking the Adriatic. After the hurly burly of Split, and before visiting the even busier Dubrovnik, it was a relaxing interlude to be in a place where there weren't thousands of cruise ship visitors invading the island.
We had a lovely time.
Wonderful visit and Antonio was extremely gracious and helpful. He recommended a wonderful restaurant (& made a reservation for us) and recommended a great beach. Great visit to Korcula. Loved the wine in Lumbarda too!
