Modern apartment on Korcula island. Breathtaking sea views, pool and BBQ area. - Lyra

Overview

Property

Updated: 03-Dec-2016
Peaceful and tranquil bay, beautiful view, only 50m from the Adriatic sea

The island of Korcula is one of the greenest and most beautiful islands on the Adriatic Sea. With abundant vineyards and olive groves, pine forests, unspoiled beaches, crystal clear waters and hidden islands untouched by time, Korcula island is a true Mediterranean paradise. Thought to be the birthplace of Marco Polo, Korcula is an unspoiled historic gem.From the 13th Century onward, different states tussled over the island, leaving a unique mix of renaissance, baroque and Venetian architecture. You will find here villages isolated of the time, places where you can breathe peace, green fields and small houses surrounded by nature.

Our house is located in Karbuni bay. This is a very quiet and peaceful bay, with a few tourists, no bars, no restaurants or night clubs. All of these facilities are available in Vela Luka and Blato, just a 10 minute-drive. Short (40min) boat trip from Vela Luka will take you to island of Proizd, a little island with a beach chosen as the most beautiful Adriatic beach in 2007. Enjoy a day trip from our house to town of Korcula and explore a typical medieval Dalmatian town.

Only 50 meters from unspoiled Adriatic Sea our accommodation offers a breathtaking view, privacy and tranquility. This is an ideal place to relax on the terrace and enjoy a glass of wine with friends and family.

The house is divided into 4 spacious apartments. Each apartment has two bedrooms, a large terrace (20-25 square meters), sea view from each room/bedroom, dedicated parking. Our apartments have all the appropriate facilities and comfort to make your stay both enjoyable and memorable. Open plan kitchen offers you self-catering for easy living. From terrace you will have a view across the bay towards numerous small islands scattered across the sea. There you'll be able to enjoy glorious mornings, spectacular sunsets and diamond scattered night sky.

Air conditioner, dishwasher, wireless internet access and satellite TV brings you the comfort of home, far away from your everyday worries. Wireless internet access is available in all rooms.

Just 60 meters from the beach, you'll have your own jetty to enjoy swimming from sunrise to sunset.

The apartments are well positioned for exploring the nature and history of our beautiful island. Swimming, walking, scuba diving, cycling, dining and boat terminals for day trips to local tourist destination are all up to 15 minute drive away.

Our house is a non-smoking property.

Small and medium size dogs are welcomed, assuming there are good mannered :).

Please note we are part of the official government licensed rental operation.

a beautiful apartment in a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a wonderful week on the island of Korcula, in one of these beautiful apartments. Karbuni Bay is quiet and serene, perfect for a peaceful holiday yet only a short drive from historic towns with plenty of restaurants. The scenery is stunning and the view is just like in the photos. The apartment was very comfortable and modern with good internet. Our host was very prompt and helpful with all communications. I highly recommend this apartment.

Lovely island and apartment

  • 5 of 5

We come back this year because of the location and the comfort of the apartment. It is quiet, the view is fabulous, the sea is few steps from the apartment which

is well equipped, clean. The tasty decoration and the small hidden details gives the apartment a warm "home" feeling.

Karbuni is for those who love the clean and quiet seaside, but from here you can easily reach Korcula Islands wonderful bays and cities.

Ruhig und verträumt.

  • 4 of 5

Die gepflegte und gut ausgestattete FeWo (Ausstattung wie beschrieben) liegt am Ende der Ortschaft Karbuni in ruhiger Lage (Hanglage); zum Meer (Badeplattform) sind es ein paar Stufen. Man ist dort ziemlich unter sich, da sie nur von wenigen Anwohnern genutzt wird, die zudem auch nicht immer da sind. Die Gegend ist ein landschaftlicher Traum. Möchte man täglich essen gehen, wird es allerdings etwas mühsam, da die nächsten brauchbaren Lokale sich erst in rd. 15km Entfernung befinden (Vela Luka) und der Weg dorthin nicht "unspannend" ist (die ersten gut 5 km sind einspurig mit Ausweichlücken). Die Kinder störten sich am langsamen WLAN.

Owner's Response: Dear Chris, Thank you very much for your feedback. We are very pleased you describe the view from the house as a 'Die Gegend ist ein landschaftlicher Traum.' or 'The area is a scenic dream'. Many of our guest ended up visiting a little Pizza place in Karbuni just 3min walk, and a small restaurant called Karaka just 10 minutes walk from our house. The nearest village from our house is Blato. It is only 7.6km away, which is approximately 10-15min drive. That's where you can find a few other restaurants. This is the link showing direction. https://www.google.com.au/maps/dir/42.9129254,16.7386043/42.9379593,16.7836654/@42.9382948,16.7763406,13z . You are absolutely right the road is narrow, however there is the plan to make it wider. This is likely to happen next year. WLAN/Internet access is approximately 4Mbps and this definitely not as good as it would be in Germany and teenagers may require much faster access. I have checked with the ISP provided if we can increase the speed and will check again. As you indicated your overall experience was very positive so we hope to see you again. Kind regards Peter

Perfekt zum Entspannen und Entschleunigen.

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren in App. "Lyra" untergebracht und waren sehr zufrieden. Die Ausstattung ließ keine Wünsche offen (Wasch- u. Spülmaschine, Mikrowelle, Gefrierkombi, Backofen/Herd, Klima im Wohnzimmer, Gas- und Holzgrillkamin beim Pool bzw. hinter dem Haus). An allen Schlafräumen sind Rollos gegen Stechmücken angebracht - sehr gut. Sauberkeit in Ordnung, es wird bei Gästewechsel von einer Putztruppe gereinigt.

Den tollen Ausblick und den kurzen Weg zum Meer werden wir sehr vermissen.

Das ist bislang der einzige Ort an dem wir ein zweites Mal Urlaub machen würden, sonst geht es normalerweise jedes Jahr woanders hin.

TOP!

Als Ausgangspunkt für Touren nach Vela Luka (ca. 9km) gut geeignet. Dort auch größerer Supermarkt (Tommy) am Ortseingang.

An der Bar "Tiki" kann man morgens zw. 8-12 auch Brot und etwas Backwaren kaufen.

Ausflugsmöglichkeiten z.B. zur Badeinsel Proizd oder mit Kindern zum Höhlengewölbe "Vela Spila".

Amüsant-chaotisch gehts in der nahegelegenen Konoba Karaka zu, man braucht aber viel Zeit und es geht auch mal ne Bestellung verloren - Essen aber recht gut.

Wer auf etwas organisierteren Service steht, der fahre über die Schotterpiste zum Riva1 nach Prizba. Etwas teurer, aber professioneller.

Modernes Appartment mit toller Aussicht

  • 5 of 5

Das Appartment sieht genauso aus wie beschrieben und auf den Bilder zu sehen. Sehr modern eingerichtet, sauber und mit einer unglaublichen Aussicht. Aufgrund der Lage ist es sehr ruhig, genau was wir zur Erholung wollten. Und Ivan hat sich sehr zuvorkommend um uns gekümmert. Wir fanden das Appartment so toll, dass wir 2016 wiederkommen wollen.

Please read our guest comments, this may be the best way to find out why our property may be a good choice for you too :) “The best place I've ever been so far” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 9 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014 If you like quiet places with a breathtaking view, this is the place. There's everything you might need for your stay. The road to the place is good, so no logistical issues. There are grocery stores 3-5 km away, lots of bicycle paths and a parking lot. The internet connection is decent. What I cherish the most is the views, serenity and the sea “Beautifull stay” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 14 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014 Me and my family (2adults, 2 children and a dog) for the 10th consecutive year are spending our holiday in Croatia. During the years we have rented many holiday houses in different places but for sure this is the best place we have ever been! The house is new, clean, furnished with a modern taste and of course the view from the balcony stole the heart! Karbuni is a perfect place if you are looking for a relaxing period.
