“Peaceful, out of the way and simple”
Reviewed May 2, 2010

Lilijana responded quickly and thorougly to my email reservation, and we made a deal. She picked me up from the bus terminal, helped me with scooter rental, and took me to the place. It is indeed a bit off the beaten track, but perfect for a few days of solitude or exploring. Scooter (or car) will be essential if you need to shop or want to eat out (other than one restaurant in walking distance - I didn't try). Kitchenette was perfectly adequate. The road near the house dead ends in a great town with some cool beaches about 7 KM down the road, great for a jog and a swim.
Don't bring your laptop, do rent a scooter, and explore this great island from a place like this.

The location of the apartment has very nice view on the bay, but it is very far to reach any of the Korchula highlights unless you drive and/or would walk to town (5-6 km). There is no breakfast like in stabdard B&B's and the one restaurant in the area may not be of the standard usually expected.
What is the most frustrating is the fact, that the owners (couple), both work from morning till 2:30 in the afternoon.If you find the place (it is unmarked and on steep hill that hates cars)and arrive during this time, sit down at the pool and wait, someone will eventually show-up. The price is quoted in Euro's (no credit cards accepted), but the owners ask for their own conversion to Kuna (local currency). You have to surrender the passport and if you lucky (we were not) you catch the owners before the last night to pay, remember they are of to work in the morning,check-out time is flexible, as there is nobody to even return the keys to.
Like I have indicated, the hill is steep, our GPS had tough time to find the place and we managed to damage the under-carriage of our car - blame the manufacturer for building these vehicles with such a low clearence and move from the street to a sharp incline.
Yes, the owners are working hard and they seem to be a fun loving couple, the last night we waited till half past midnight to collect our passport, as we knew that in the morning the management has to leave for work.
If you going to stay there, find out how much it going to be in Kuna, prepay your stay, get your passport back asap. If you drive to town, bring your beer home, as the road is tricky (there is also zero tolerance in Croatia).
They have satelite TV and wireless Internet, great plus and if you like that bit of time avay from people, it may be the place for you.

These apartments are set about 10 minutes walk from the small village of Zrnovska Banja, and you will need a car, though there are restaurants nearby, the best are generally in Korcula Town.

This accomodation though has about 5 massive apartments, all modern, with satellite TV, kitchen, beautiful furniture, and massive bathrooms. The view from the toip apartments is stunning, you can see the peljesac peninsula to the North, and to the North West Hvar. The bay of Zrnovska Banja makes the main part of your view though, with little yachts bobbing in it like toy boats in a bath.

The Bay itself is a ten minute walk away and swimming is brilliant. Not much of a beach, more a ledge to sit on and read a book, but the positive is no sand in your undies!

I would recommend the Grgic apartments highly, but be prepared to buy in your own food for the odd couple of nights as there is not a great deal of choice with local restaurants.

The other thing to bear in mind is that they are at the top of a steep slope, so if youre old you might need to arrange some assistance from the owners - who are both very nice!

  • Liked — The amazing views, and spacious accomodation
  • Disliked — A bit too far from Korcula Town
