It offers direct access to one of the best beaches known in the region which leads out into perfectly clear, turquoise-blue water. The Villa is set within a generous garden of lemon, lime, fig and palm trees which give plenty of cool shade during hot summer days. The edge of the garden leads to a gate after which follow a set of steps directly onto the wonderful beach below.

There guests into a large modern open-plan kitchen/dinner/lounge area. On this ground floor level there are also three double bedrooms and one separate bathroom. A spiral staircase leads to the first floor where guests will find two double bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom. Both double bedrooms lead out onto a shared sea-facing terrace. The rooftop of the Villa bears yet another terrace.

The main attraction of the entire Villa is its exquisite outside area, where guests spend the majority of their time, as it makes of an ideal entertaining area. The patio doors from the lounge lead out onto a large dining area equipped with a BBQ located at the side of the property. In addition there is a comfortable outdoor lounge spot. Both the outdoor lounge and dining areas are shaded by an attractive wooden sun shade. Further forward there is a spacious garden where 4 marble chairs and a table are positioned at the end to enjoy the best sea view. Stairs (about 60, a 40 meter distance) lead down to the exquisite beach and crystal clear water.

A short walk away, one of the two beach bars is a relaxing Tikki bar and restaurant overlooking the sea, as well as a scuba-diving centre. Not far from the beach, near the Villa, there is a wonderful sunken ship to view just off the coast. Nearby in the town of Orebic plenty of nightlife can be found as well as restaurants. From Orebic it is a short ferry ride to visit the city of Korcula on the island of Korcula, while approximately 15 km from the Villa there is the coastal town of Viganj, popular with windsurfers. Guests staying in this region can also visiting local vineyards, take a day trip to Dubrovnik or Mostar, and other places such as the National Park of Mljet Island.

The Dalmatia region

Peljesac is a peninsula in southern Croatia, in the Dubrovnik -Neretva county, just about an hour and a half drive from Dubrovnik. It is around 70 km long and is connected with Croatian Mainland at Ston.It is the longest of all Dalmatian peninsulas, abounding in natural bays, mostly covered with woods, with a coast full of beaches, reefs, bays and fjords. Peljesac was inhabited since ancient times by Illyrians and Greeks, later by Romans and since the 7th century by Slavs. The old historians mention it under the name Rathaneus Kersones, meaning the Cape Lynx. The Peljesac Channel divides the peninsula from the island of Korcula. Scattered like breadcrumbs across the foothills of the dolomites, the hamlets and villages of southern Peljesac evoke an ancient past. The rocks, the vegetation, the groves of pine and cypress - everywhere a sense of timelessness prevails. On the hills above the sea, abandoned villas and gardens, stone walls and columns lie crumbling in the sun. Lemon, fig and almond trees, herbs and wildflowers surround the villages gardens and fields. The historical sea captains' town of Orebic - with its shops, market, cafes and restaurants is on the bottom of the Sveti Ilija Mountain. A footpath into the mountains to the summit of Sveti Ilija begins near Viganj too - Croatia's windsurfing capital. There, seaside restaurants and pebbly beaches attract a lively crowd in summer months. The island of Korcula and Mljet are is just across the channel

Mokalo

Peljesac has an ancient maritime tradition and is the home of many captains famous for their skill and bravery on the open sea. It is also well known since ancient times for the fine vineyards, and the excellent sorts of wine, "Dingac" and "Postup", are famous all over the world.

Orebic – a small town on the south seashore of Peljesac Peninsula, originally built by sea captains who found this spot to built their homes and villas. It is located on the regional road running along Peljesac peninsula. Back in 19th century, Orebic had one of the largest sailing and shipping societies in Mediterranean but as soon as steam ships replaced sailing ships, Orebic lost it's primate in the field, although sailing itself remains local activity to present days. Orebic is nowadays popular tourist resort, offering various accommodation facilities – hotels, apartments,and rooms, long pebble beaches (Trstenica).

Here is a quote about Orebic from Sunday Times UK: “Stick a pin anywhere on a map of the Croatian coast and you're likely to hit on an unspoilt beach and a sleepy fishing village or two. If you're lucky, you might find a lovely little place like Orebic, on the Peljesac peninsula, north of Dubrovnik. It has a long, sandy beach, restaurants serving black squid risotto and whitebait, and a jetty where you can take a 15-minute ferry ride to the delightful island of Korcula. ”

A UNIQUE STORY

Over a decade ago, after many years of stressful city life and financial markets, this stunning property chosen for its natural beauty was bought instinctively, with a vision of sharing its divine beauty and incredible peace. Purchased the same day it was seen, this waterfront villa, situated between an incredible ancient olive grove, was chosen not only for its impeccable location, but also for its incredible potential to allow holidays of guests’ dreams come alive. The exterior of the property has been restored following its authentic Dalmatian architecture, while its interior has been fully equipped according to top-quality 5-star standards.

If there was a HAREM to carry me to and from the beach it would be better. Other than that I can't think of anything!

We love Villa Kustra!

Beautiful beachfront home with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two young sons stayed here last June for two weeks. We had a fantastic time. The house was immaculate and perfect for our needs. The bedrooms were spacious and the adjoining bathrooms were spa quality. We had everything we needed in the house. We loved dining and relaxing on the patio. The proximity to the beach is so convenient. It feels so private. We loved going to the 2 beach bars next to the house for a quick lunch while enjoying the beach. Orebic is a quick drive away and perfect for a daily ice cream and stroll! We would definitely return!

Our Favorite things to do

1. Have mussels (caught fresh daily) and wine at Camp Adriatics beach bar with its picturesque waterview

2. Go on a wine tour of all of the wineries in our area. Just hop in the car and drive south, you will stumble upon many on the way. Our favorite red wines are of the Dingac varietal. Matusko winery is a must!!
