ISLETS IN KORČULA ARCHIPELAGO - a great day out from Korcula, by a water taxi (only 15 to 20 min journey, low price) if you like peace and quiet, and swimming in crystal clear water. During summer season in the nearby bay you can catch a taxi boat which goes to the islets BADIJA where you will enjoy the shade of the ancient pine forests & VRNIK, one of the most peaceful places one step back in time.

VISIT OREBIC - A frequent and inexpensive ferry (5 min walk from our house) runs to Orebic famous town of captains on the main land - Pelješac peninsula.
Renata and her husband were a very welcoming couple! We missed the car ferry we intended on getting but they didn't mind at all! The apartment is very spacious with a wonderfully comfortable bed. Nothing was too much trouble , Renata even did some laundry for us. We had a car, so it was easy to get around but I did walk into the centre of the old town one day and it took about 20mins. The restaurant suggestions from Renata were fabulous!
Renata and Ivo are very warm and generous people. From the pick up at the ferrie till the end of our stay they were extremely helpful.
Renata has a lot of nice stories to tell! And she gave us many good tips.
They built their home and the apartment themselves and they did a terrific job! The view is wonderful and the apartment is better than the pictures show. You can use their terras and their BBQ/ fireplace. We loved it! Real outdoor cooking on real fire, just perfect.
Their cat Kito is lovely and sweet, we liked him a lot. Made me miss our own cats little less :-)
We definitely go back here again, three days is way too short!
Thanks Renata and Ivo! Till next time..
Ciao Renata ! Renata has waited at the bus stop after 200 meters close to the harbour and she showed us the apartment. We instantly felt at home! the house is beautiful clean and spacious. It has everything you need for a great stay. Renata gave us lots of advice and prepared a book with all the seats, All the gourmet restaurants of the Korcula and very useful info to schedule our short vacation days! everything is perfect! Korcula is a fantastic island!! THANK YOU REANTA and ... a presto a Genova!
We had a great time on Korcula and the apartment was much more than we needed for our short stay. Renata picked us up at the bus station close to the ferry which was very kind and she took a lot of time to explain us how to find the sights and gave us recommendation for a perfect stay on this lovely island.
This is a really lovely apartment - spotlessly clean, a very well equipped kitchen (including an oven, kettle and toaster) and nicely decorated. Renata and her husband were fantastic hosts, and went out of their way to be helpful - giving lots of very useful recommendations and information on what to do in our short stay, advising on ferries, looking up weather forecasts and even driving us to get our catamaran at 5.30am! The apartment is out of town and the beach close to the apartment is quite small and crowded, but the apartment is very well situated for exploring further afield, as it is a five minute walk to the stop for water taxis to Korcula Town, Lumbarda and islands. We were only there for three nights but could have easily stayed much longer. Highly recommended!
Renata and Ivo were fantastic hosts, they kindly picked us up from the boat at 9pm and provided lots of information so you get the most out of your stay. The apartment was large and spotlessly clean, you may even get a little visitor, Kito, their cat, who we became very fond of! The taxi boat to Korcula town is a short walk and very easily accessible. We had a lovely stay in Korcula and would recommend staying with Renata and Ivo anytime!
Great place to stay and is even better than the photos show. We were picked up by Renata and her husband from the ferry and driven to the apartment whilst having everything pointed out to us, showing us where to walk etc. Very clean, tidy and extremely comfortable in a great location. Very close to the sea and boat taxis, and it is a nice walk to the old town. We were even driven to our 6am ferry at 5.30am. AMAZING! We would highly recomend this place.
Renata made all possible to pick up us at the harbour. She's so lovely and listen fully person about our needs. She adviced us many things to do adapted to our stay. She's simple as possible and really helpfull (we took a catmaran to hvar at 6 am and her husband drove us early on the morning). The apartment was clean, quite and really 5minutes max far from the beach. Many taxi boats (stop at midnight) do the sailing between the beach and Korcula center (10min). I strongly recommend Renata.
We cannot rate this beautiful apartment and wonderful host highly enough! The apartment was extremely well equipped and spotlessly clean. Renata has put together a huge amount of information for visitors, which really helped us to see the best of Korcula during our short stay on the island. Both Renata and her family gave us great advice about where to visit / eat / drink, and went over and above our expectations to make our stay really special. A perfect holiday experience!
The best place! Clean, perfect location, wonderful people. I would never stay anywhere else, I can honestly say that Renata made my accommodation a home.
