We had the most amazing week. The apartment was very spacious and well resourced for a family with stunning views of Lumbarda bay. The owners were very friendly and incredibly helpful, whether in regards to the apartment or things to do and see. The apartment is 30m from the crystal clear water and 10 minutes from Korcula town center by car. We will definitely visit again!
We stayed for a week in the 3 bedroom apartment and it was superb. The proprietors were charming and we were able to purchase wine and fresh vegs from their production. Beautiful balcony and amazing views. A short walk down to the sea, swimming straight of the rocks, nearby islands to discover, kayaks and boats for rent in Lumbarda, buggy excursions close to apartment.
We had a lovely week in the largest apartment, which has 3 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Antonio and his family were very welcoming and on hand to help out if needed. The pool is wonderful and we spent a lot of time relaxing there with books. Alternatively, the sea is just at the bottom of the steps. Lumbarda itself is a quiet village although there are low-key events on in the square most evenings. It's perhaps a little too quiet for teenagers. We found lovely places to eat: Torkul for pizza, Gavuni, which is across the bay from the apartment - great for grilled fish, and Zure, which serves home-grown food.
Booked this place through Tripadvisor. Traveled together with my wife and all our kids (two teenagers and three kids five to eight years). The owner arranged for pick up at the port by one of his relatives driving a Maxi taxi. The taxi driver was great and we did not need rental car since the taxi driver picked us up in less than 10 minutes every time we called him.
We loved the swimming pool. The owner lived in the same building with family visiting, but this was no issue (except one morning with drilling in the walls). Old bathrooms, but OK quality. There is also another apartment in the building sharing the same swimming pool, but we had no issues with this.
10 minutes jogging to Lumbarda to pick up bread for breakfast. Recommend renting a bike in Lumbarda (I borrowed a old bike from the owner). And I really recommend renting a boat to visit the smaller islands and beaches.
The view is amazing, and having toured the island, I was delighted to find this the nicest spot of all I'd seen. The pool installed in 2015 is a real bonus, few houses let alone apartments seem to have one. A1 is really spacious, with no problem seating 8 on the balcony as my sister also had A2 (and was really happy with that). The owners are on hand and really lovely. You have a 20 minute walk into Lumbarda for shops, with restaurants on the way, there is a bus if you resent carrying shopping, but this location makes that shore walk all worth it anyway. This is my first Trip Advisor review because its really is special and the owners deserve it...even if I would like to keep it secret...It wont be for long
