Driving Dubrovnik (airport) - Vela Luka?

I have booked flight to Dubrovnik in May 2013.

Now I'm looking for a suitable villa to rent (we are 8 persons alltogehter). I found a really nice one near Vela Luka, but the distance from Dubrovnik airport seems a bit long...

None of us has visited Croatia before - that means that the local traffic is a new experience. Is it possible for us to rent a car at the airport and manage to drive to Vela Luka in a relatively short time? (the flight arrives at 6 pm.)

I hope there is somebody who knows if this sounds like a good alternative. Otherwise I'll start looking for villas near Dubrovnik.

Vela Luka would be quite a drive, including a ferry ride from Orebic to the island of Korcula, then across the island to Vela Luka. I would suggest that you find something closer to Dubrovnik...as in maybe Cavtat?

I spent an afternoon in Vela Luka - more than enough. There must be villas nearer Dubrovnik.
