Location and settlement perfect. Snorkelling is very good from 50m off the shore. The upper side of the apartman is ok. The other side needs some changes, like the moist and smelly bathroom, beds, furniture etc. Cats are terrible in the garden, they act like an owner in all sense. Garden around the house with the grill is also very good. The concept of the forefront grarden is unknown, much green needed there. Owner very nice and helpful.
Villa: Pretty, spacious and well equipped villa, really felt like home from home. Spotlessly clean and well maintained, enhanced by Katy's artistic touches.
Grounds: extensive landscaped gardens, choice of terraces, balconies and tranquil spots, beautiful pool area, outside showers, fab BBQ. Add a private mooring jetty and beach area,complete with sun beds and kayak..what more can you want?
Setting: on a small headland commanding 270 views of the beautifully tranquil, wooded bays and islands out to sea. Breathtakingly gorgeous.
Service: nothing is too much trouble for Katy and her family. Its her home as well as her business.
Local Area: Pretty Vela Luka 10mins away by car, Supermarket on the outskirts. Don't miss the daily fish/produce market. Ask if you can't find it! Everyone speaks English and people are v friendly. Car hire and taxi companies couldn't be more helpful. Ferries from Vela Luca to Hvar, Split etc.
Plenty of restaurants/bars . Try "Bata" restaurant for excellent local food.
Korcula town ("little Dubrovnic" definitely worth a visit) is at the opposite end of island, we found it quite a trip by boat and went by car the second time, which was quicker!
Proizd island with its white pebbles and crystal water is a short boat ride away
The mooring at Villa Katy has a lazy line, so you don't need to worry about dropping an anchor.
If you are waterskiing from Villa Katy make sure you stay at least 200m from the shore for safety of any swimmers and so as no to disturb the "neighbours" (not may of those about!)
Friendly local families occasionally picnic/swim on the adjacent foreshore. The shoreline belongs to Croatia, so they are entitled to do so but they are very careful not to wander onto private land, and are absolutely no trouble.
We drove a charter boat from Split to Korcula this year but it was 3.5hrs each way and guzzled so much fuel. Next year we'll catch the sea plane (18minutes) to take the ferry is which is only £7 pp
