What originally caught my attention about this property was the view shown in the advert from the balcony and, to be honest, I was prepared to be disappointed. But on arriving we were all absolutely blown away by the beautiful location of this apartment overlooking the tiny islands in a turquoise sea which surround Korcula.
The family were very welcoming but not intrusive and the apartment was scrupulously clean. There were two good sized double bedrooms with comfortable beds and two shower rooms - one slightly bigger than the other. There was plenty of storage in the bedrooms and clean linen was provided after a week. The kitchen/lounge area was functional but to be honest we lived on that balcony. The wifi was useful as was the air conditioning - both weeks we were there exceeded 30 degrees daily.
There is a small pool which was lovely and there were plenty of loungers, cushions and umbrellas. However it was only a 50 metre stroll down to the sea - I cannot describe how lovely it was to swim in silky smooth water and no matter how far I swum out I could still see my feet. One word of warning - take swim shoes as to get in it is slightly rocky and there may be sea urchins!
Lumbarda is an unspoilt village stretched out over several bays. It took a 30 minute slow ramble into the centre of the village where there were plenty of restaurants to choose from. There are lots of activities on offer locally - we tried two man buggies, sea kayaking and a cruise to Mljet National Park which is a must.
Korcula Town is very accessible if you have a vehicle and also has plenty to offer.
Overall I would say that this is a very reasonably priced apartment in one of the most beautiful countries I have visited.
