One of the biggest benefits of theses apartments, besides being new and having playful colours, is the private outdoor pool with a separate corner just for the toddlers (0,4m height of the water).

The pool is dedicated only to the guest from the Sunshine apartments and the terrace on the pool offers magnificent view to the sea and and afternoon shadow, so the children can play in the pool without the parents worrying about sun burns.

While the children’s play in the pool, parents often read a book in sun chairs, surf the internet or prepare the delicious dinner with fresh fish from the market on the outdoor barbecue - grill. There are 2 BBQ available for apartments and there are never fully occupied.

To reach Korcula town on the Korcula Island from Split you have two possibilities:

a) Take the ferry to Vela Luka (Korcula) at 10.15 or 17.30 and you arrive 2,5 hours later to the town Vela Luka. From there you have one more hour of drive to reach Lumbarda or Korcula town (45 km). The ferry drive takes about 2, hours and costs 10 € for the passengers and 90 € for the car.

b) If you arrive without the car, you can board the passengers-only Catamaran, that departs from Split and arrives either to Vela Luka or Korcula town directly. Catamaran departs from Split to Vela Luka at 15.00 and from Split to Korcula at 17.00. The drive takes around 2,5 hours and costs ca. 10 €. From Korcula town you need another 10 minutes to reach Lumbarda with local bus or taxi ( 6 km only).

As for the car ferry, it is recommendable to be there 1 hour before departure. Ferry departs 2 times each day, at 10.15 and at 17.30 in high season (1.6. - 30.9. each year).

If you arrive sooner, park your car in the line for the Ferry to Korcula (you are going to see signs guiding you to the right peer), and then leave the car there (you don't need to pay anything for the car there).

Buy a ticket to Korcula, and then take a stroll in the old town of Split (5 minutes on foot), and drink a coffee on a beautiful Split promenade by the sea with palms!

Half an hour before departure you will start to board the ferry. You park the car on the deck and go upstairs where the outdoor terrace or indoor cabin is. Inside is air-conditioned coffee bar, so you can enjoy the ride of 2,5 hours already on the ferry. There is plenty of space for the children to run around, play and relax.

You can also walk around the terraces and admire the Adriatic sea and start getting the brown color on the ferry already. If you are lucky, you might even see the dolphins.

You have access to your car the whole time so if you need anything from your car, you can go down and take it. It is a big ferry so you don't need to worry if there will be enough space for all cars, There is always enough space on this ferry from Split to Vela Luka.

When you arrive in Vela Luka, turn right from the port and follow the signs for Korcula. The rest is written in the guidelines, that we attach you with your travel Voucher.

NOTE: there is not possible to make a reservation for the ferry. You can only buy tickets on the day of your departure. The only ferry where reservations are possible is the long distance ferry from Rijeka to Dubrovnik, where you travel for several hours (from Rijeka to Dubrovnik 2 days and 1 night).

CAR on THE ISLAND: We do recommend to have a car on the island, since there is much to explore (several beautiful bays, hidden local restaurants, interesting towns, concerts), although you can visit all this also with a bus or excursion. You can rent a car once you arrive to the island Korcula or already at the Split airport.

We recommend to hire your car using this provider (excellent price-value ration, new cars, friendly service):

About Tanja Gutenmorgen

When I was 20 years old I visited the island and instantly fell in love with it. Turquoise blue bays, crystal clear water, charming old town with its cute stone streets, relaxing mindset of the local people and green pine forests instantly grew to my heart. When the opportunity came to buy this house, me and my partner instantly knew that this is where we would like to enjoy our passion for the Adriatic Sea and pass it forward to others.

I keep staying without breath every time I step to the balcony and see a spectrum of stunning blue colours. I just keep falling in love with this Island over and over again, that is also why we make sure that your stay at our apartments is accompanied with tips and tricks that only local people are aware of - like for example where to buy fresh fish, which secluded beach to visit, where to get the best steak on the Island and the how to rent a small boat and exploring the secret bays of Korcula.

My spouse and I believe that what goes around comes around, so we give a lot of love and attention to many details in this house in order for you to feel comfortable, welcomed and safe.

Tanja Gutenmorgen purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Tanja Gutenmorgen chose Lumbarda

When I first visited the Island I heard that people from all over the Island are coming to bath on the two famous sandy beaches in Lumbarda, Przina and Bilin Zal. That was my first clue that Lumbarda must be a special place.

Not so fond of the sandy beaches I was happy to discover many little bays with pebble and the naturist part of the beaches too. Many little islands reachable in a few minutes with the boat give even more opportunities to have the beach all for yourself and enjoy the peace and quietness even in peak season, so this is another benefit of this place. The water everywhere is so beautifully clear!

On the other hand you can reach Korcula old town in just a few minutes with a car or bus, so it's great when you want to go and have a romantic walk around the city walls or drink a cocktail to celebrate something special.

It was not easy to find a new, renovated house on the Island, so we grabbed the opportunity to buy this one, since it was not only new and with a private pool, but it was also decorated by an artist and had many fabulous colourful pictures inside the house. So many people say that they feel wonderful at our place and that brings us extreme pleasure!

We love the local beaches in Lumbarda, whilst trips to Pupnatska Luka, Racisce and Prizba are fantastic. The main road through the island is very good and getting to the little bays can be a little exciting but the rewards are well worth it! If you hire a small boat for a day engine and you can drive round the local islands. Most evenings our guest returns to their lovely apartment and take another swim in the bay before getting ready for a night out.

Sunshine apartments are only 6 km away from Korcula town and 7 km from ferry port. The most convenient airports are those in Dubrovnik and Split. In order to make the most of your trip, we recommend hiring a car - all the main car hire companies have desks at Dubrovnik and Split airports. Alternatively, you can order a door-to-door transfer from Dubrovnik airport when booking the apartment (30 EUR per person) a) Flying to Dubrovnik: if you choose to fly to beautiful, medieval Dubrovnik you can drive to Orebic town (on the Peljesac peninsula), where the local ferry to Korcula goes every 60 minutes. It takes only 20 minutes to cross from Orebic to Domince port (Korcula). b) Flying to Split: a passenger’s ferry from Split to Korcula goes one a day and it take 2 hours to to get to Korcula. Another option is a car ferry from Split to Vela Luka (that goes twice a day and it takes about 2.5 hours to get to Vela Luka) and then continue driving for 45 minutes to reach Lumbarda.

Beautiful location and nice very clean apartment. Very friendly and helpful hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We were not too lucky with the weather in April but especially when the sun shone Lumbarda was beautiful. Fabulous views from the apartment, nice pool and outdoor facilities. Not many restaurants open in April as tourist season doesn't really start until May but loved the traditional konoba nearby serving its own wine, olive and cheese. The hosts were very helpful and friendly with arranging taxis, hire bikes etc as we didn't hire a car and checking ferry times etc for us. Perfect for a relaxing sunshine break. Will definitely return but probably in season next time. Thanks to all at sunshine apartments.

Owner's Response: Hello, thank you for your kind feedback, which I was really happy to read :) Vacation house Sunshine in Lumbarda is a real gem in our selection of apartments on the Adriatic and perfect for families with children. I can imagine that you weren’t too happy about the rainy weather in April, but spring is still a wonderful time to visit wonderful Dalmatia, especially as you can admire the awakening of nature. I would be really happy to host you any time again! With kind regards, Tanja Gutenmorgen

Beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

Lumbarda is a beautiful and (mostly) tranquil location, great for swimming, snorkelling, cycling, walking and so forth. The flat is really convenient for the town. The flat is ok, if a bit 'IKEA finish' and therefore not very robust. During our stay the smell of the drains was unacceptable, off and on. Overall, we really enjoyed ourselves and the pool is great for the kids.

Relaxing stay at Sunshine apartments

  • 4 of 5

We spent 7 days in Lumbarda and the experience was great. Before our arrival I received all the help that I needed from Tanja and Marcel. All possible questions were answered quickly and thoroughly. I really appreciated this! Upon out arrival we were greeted by our hostess who had also prepared a light evening snack for us. Apartment was clean and exactly as we expected. We used the pool area a lot and it was also cleaned properly every day. Sun terrace offered really nice view over the sea! What we liked about this apartment was that it was really secluded but yet only a short walking distance from the town centre.

Overall our stay was really nice and we felt welcome. We will definitely consider returning here for a second time. Thank you Tanja and the whole team!

Really chilled beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing location and really chilled beautiful place in a stunning picturesque part of the world with some of the clearest sea I have ever seen. Korcula is Europe’s best hidden gem. Hiring a scooter and exploring the amazing island and the beach coves was one of the best parts of my holiday.

When thinking of spending your holidays in Croatia, you should plan to see its most beautiful parts.

Choosing Islands as a starting point, and in particular Korcula Island, is the best idea for getting to know the most beautiful “must see” points at the Adriatic sea.

Korcula island is known for its green pine forests, turquoise green – blue sea, beautiful Korcula old town, where you can literally fall in love with all the cute details of Venetian architecture…

…have a Caipirinha cocktail at the top of a tower, enjoy the romantic sunset from the top of the city walls and eat delicious organic Mediterranean food prepared by warm-hearted locals.

The Mediterranean climate, crystal clear sea, waking up with the sunrise at your balcony and breathtaking sea views on the whole Korcula Bay from the apartment will make you fall in love!

Here in the Sunshine apartments in Lumbarda you can experience peaceful and relaxing family holiday.

If you are a relaxed traveller looking for a quiet getaway or ways to create some new exciting memories, you are going to love the Island, Lumbarda with its sandy beaches, boat trips to secluded pebble beaches, wind-surfing and sailing courses and romantic walks in the evening in the Korcula old town.

Most people rent a little fisherman's boat and explore the 22 islets around Lumbarda, where you can have the whole beach just for yourself and enjoy the intimacy, peacefulness and sunbathing.

P.S. The title “The most beautiful beach of Croatia” was given to the Proizd Island in the year 2007 - just a 30 minutes boat trip from Korcula. You MUST to see its turquoise crystal clear waters and breathtaking pebble beaches!
