The owners, the Devcic family, who lived in the apartment next door, were fabulous! They picked us up at the ferry terminal and, on arrival at the apartment, greeted us with wine, fruit, and conversation (the son, Marko, speaks excellent English). A few days later we shared a BBQ (wonderful food and company), and a few days after that, we were invited for a boat tour and swimming on nearby islands. Marko also drove us to the nearby town and beach of Lumbarda for sightseeing and a swim. Almost every day our hosts would drop by with gifts of fruit or homemade treats. They also provided rides to and from various bus stations and ferry terminals. The Devcics treated us like welcome guests or even family. They were warm, welcoming, and helpful, but never intrusive.
The house itself is in a quiet suburb about a 15-minute walk on treelined streets from Korcula City. The apartment, a one-bedroom with living room, well-equipped kitchenette, and bathroom, is new, spotless, and comfortable. Air-conditioning, wi fi, and all amenities work well. There is also a private outdoor patio with a mountain view.
On the way from the Blue House to Korcula town, you pass a beach (mostly gravel with one small sandy part) with several restaurants and bars. The residential neighbourhood is quiet and safe. There is a Konsum supermarket a 10-minute walk away.
To sum up:
We enjoyed our stay. It was more like a visit with friends than a "hotel" experience. I should also mention that our apartment was great value for money and we would certainly recommend it to others.
A washing machine (for clothes) would have been nice, especially for long visits. As it was, we washed some things by hand, and it wasn't a huge problem.
