About the property

Vela/Lyra/Orion&Virgo

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.

“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.

Perfect relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We are just back from 2 wonderful weeks. The views from the balcony are simply stunning and the apartment and balcony are really spacious, comfortable, and well equipped. It's just a few minutes walk down the steps to the sea which is crystal clear and perfect for swimming and snorkelling. The pool is even closer and we all enjoyed going in that too. It's an idyllic spot and a real haven of peace and calm.

We hired a boat in Karbuni and cruised along the coast and around the islands - the sea was turquoise and there were so many unspoilt bays. We also took a jet ski out too which our kids really enjoyed. Plenty of other beautiful coves and beaches to visit around the island too. We took the ferry from Split and hired a car in Vela Luka which worked out really well.

We'd never been to Croatia before and all of us loved it - we will be back.

We would really recommend this appartment you. Thanks for a really memorable holiday.

The owner and the local representative were all very helpful and friendly.

Very pleasant apartment in quiet, idyllic island location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in Korcula. The apartment was bigger than we expected from the photographs, and all very clean and modern - perfect for our family of four. The terrace was perfect for eating all our meals with the gorgeous view out to sea and is big enough for sunbathing when we wanted quiet days at home. The pool is also bigger than we expected - though not huge it is also very nicely done and perfectly good for a cooling splash; the kids spent many happy hours there! (They also made some friends in the other apartments) There is a walk down the few steps to the private beach area (like most of Croatia it is small and quite rocky with ladder steps into the sea) - which is absolutely stunning with amazing coloured water, very safe for children (so long as they can swim or have inflatables - it's not shallow), and lovely pine trees giving plenty of shade. The village itself is still quite small and the evenings are quiet, which is exactly what we wanted - there is a pizza bar but if you want to eat out you'll need to drive to the near towns.

The island itself is a good size for a one or two week holiday, plenty enough to explore without feeling overwhelmed. Very varied and stunning landscape across the island. We had lovely days at Lumbarda Beach (where there is a very reasonable and friendly beach bar) and the idyllic Proizd Island off Vela Luka. Korchula Town was good for a pleasant lunch and wandering round the tourist markets, we enjoyed the local Posip wines and plenty of fresh local foods. All in all a great place to sample Croatia, relax and enjoy the beautiful countryside and Adriatic. We would be very happy to go back!

Wunderbar !

  • 5 of 5

Wunderschöner Ort um zu Entspannen. Alles war sauber und ordentlich. Der Pool wurde regelmäßig gereinigt. Tagsüber versteckte Badebuchten entdecken und abends in der "Konoba Karaka" mit Weißwein únd frischen Fisch den Abend ausklingen lassen. Ein Traum !
