“Great value, friendly staff and wonderful view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2012

We had a great time staying at Villa Depolo. The following is a summary of the place:
1. Fantastic staff, did everything they could to make our stay comfortable even to offer to do our laundry for free
2. The room is fairly basic but very clean with nice bathroom and you can't argue for the price you pay
3. The view from the terrace is stunning-great view to the water (only a narrow road separates you from the water), also to the old town and nearby mountains. Plastic table and chairs allows you to enjoy the view.
4. The bed was comfortable and we slept well
5. The owner came and escorted us from the ferry terminal at the old town when we arrived, which was only a 5 min walk
6. We got heaps of tips for good eating places at good prices.
7. Fantastic location, close to old town and a spot where you can swim (buy a pair of those plasitc water shoes if you intend to swim in Croatia as most beach areas are limestone pebbles and little sand)
Get room 3 as this has a wonderful view

There is no down side to this place as long as you are not expecting 4-5 star luxury accommodation.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view, we stayed in room 3 which had a terrace and a fantastic view to water and ol...

The location is great, 5 minutes work to Kocula town, and stroll across the road to swim. Thereza is friendly and very helpful and recommended a couple of great inexpensive restaurants. We didn't have a room with a sea view but our balcony overlooked a lush garden. The room was spacious, clean, safe and nice and bright. Definitely one of our accommodation highlights while travelling though Croatia

Room Tip: Book ahead for a room with an ocean view

We had the room in the front with the balcony. The room and bathroom were very large and modern. There was cable TV and a comfortable bed. The view was spectacular. The woman who owns the place was extremely helpful. The oldest part of the city was a five minute walk. Korcula was charming and we would recommend staying here.

We stayed for two nights in October 2011...GREAT location right on the water. Rezi is fantastic, she met us at the ferry dock in the evening and walked us (5 minutes) along the waterfront to our room. Our room had a nice balcony where we would spend time sitting and taking in the views of Korcula. The room was very clean, no frills - basic and just fine.

We ate at Marco Polo restaurant - which had one of the best dinners of our entire 2 week trip through Croatia and Slovenia. Bottom line - fantastic location, price can't be beat and amazing views of the town/water. We had a great time, thank you Rezi!

We were really impressed by the friendliness of the owner and the value for money of the room. It was very spacious, clean and had an amazing sea view. And it is only a very short walk from the centre. Thanks again for a great stay! As a little side note: There seems to still be some confusion around "Villa Depolo" and "Apartments Depolo". We thought we stayed with the latter.. :) But either way, we definitely stayed with the one described here. If in doubt, just ask for Tereza. She is lovely and will make sure you find your way to her great place.

Just returned home from Dubrovnik and Korcula. Rezi was a wonderful host, who provided us with lots of information via email before we got there.
There are 4 rooms in the house. We stayed in Nr3, which was fantastic. Very large side balcony with great views over the sea towards Korcula. Another room has a front on sea view with balcony and the other 2 do not have balcony. Request balcony :) There is a communal fridge in the hallway, along with tea/coffee/sugar/hairdryer etc.

I was a little apprehensive staying here as we got such a 'cheap' deal compared to the other 2 hotels we stayed in whilst in Croatia. The room was 290 Kuna (jul/aug) and 250 Kuna (sept). We stayed 2 nights in August, 1 in Septmeber but paid the full 290 for each night as the value was awesome. The room therefore only cost £110 for 3nights... considering we paid £170/night in a hotel in Dubrovnik, i would have to rate this hotel higher!

The house is a few mintues walk away from the 'centre'.. however, do not be expecting too much. Korcula is a vew quaint, quiet town with not too much going on. It is lovely for relaxing but not much else. We took a day trip to Lumbarada which again was very beautiful with not much going on. We stayed 3nights in Korcula, however this was more than enough. Once you've saw the town you've saw it. We went out the 3 evenings in search of a good pub..... we were greeted with the same band on the 3nights, however playing in different bars. They were very good but by night3 we knew their song list off by heart!

On the whole Korcula is a beautiful place, very relaxing, however a few nights are enough... and if going, Villa Depolo is definatly place to stay at :):) Enjoy!

Room Tip: Room 3, with side balcony which is huge!
