I stayed here with a friend in a 2 bedroom apartment and we loved it! it is the perfect spot for a relaxing holiday. if you get bored of relaxing you can make use of the free kayaks or bikes, go swimming in the beautiful crystal clear water off the jetty at the bottom of the drive or go on one of the many exciting daytrips that the owner also runs that leave from the jetty ("Sokol adventures"). the apartment had everything we needed, was very clean, well furnished with comfy beds, airconditioning, nice bathroom and a gorgeous deck. the owners(who live on the top floor) were very friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay. when you arrive in the apartment there is some local wine and a plate of yummy local cheese and cured ham to greet you. best wine we tasted on our trip. zoran also dropped us down to the local supermarket on the first day so that we could get some supplies which was really appreciated.
lumbarda is about 7km away from korcula main town. there is a bus but it is infrequent so if you don't have a car you made need to catch a taxi to and from town (unless you are keen to bike). we really liked being 'out of town'. it was much more peaceful than if we had stayed in korcula town(which gets overrun with tourists when the cruise ships pull in). there was a really excellent local restaurant in lumbarda which wasn't far too from the villa.
i would really recommend this place. i would love to go back for another stay. we regretted not having more time as we would have loved time to bike to explore some of the local vineyards and would have liked to go on one of Zoran's daytrips to one of the other islands.
