About Inga Keric

Having left the corporate world and nearing retirement, Inga decided to pursue her life long dream of running and managing a holiday property. Whilst Inga and her family have lived in Australia for the last 15 years, Inga travels across the globe every year to personally manage the apartments for 6 months of the year.

Inga Keric purchased this villa in 1980

Why Inga Keric chose Lumbarda

The Inga's family, born and bred in Dalmatia is very familiar with the Croatian coast. In the mid-1980s they set out to find a new holiday home – somewhere away from the hustle and bustle of the summer crowds, picturesque and rich in nature, yet not remote. For these reasons, Korcula was the obvious choice. After an extensive search of the island for the perfect house in the perfect bay, they found what is now called Villa Diha – a traditional Dalmatian stone house, with a terracotta tile roof and wooden shutters built a mere stone throw from the water’s edge.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Diha is situated in undoubtedly the most attractive bay in the village of Lumbarda. This is the reason why the bay is often referred to by the locals as the Beverly Hills of Korcula.

Aside from this, the owner is very proud of the overwhelming number of comments from guests that the property feels like a home away from home rather than a rental property. This is reflected in the high number of repeat bookings annually.

Lovely apartments, beautiful views, great location

  • 5 of 5
A belated review following our wonderful stay last summer. Due to a double booking, we were upgraded from the 1 bed ground floor to the 2 bed first floor apartment for the majority of our stay, moving downstairs for the last four days. Both apartments were great - the upstairs one had a much better and well-equipped kitchen if you intend to cook, and was much more spacious for a longer stay, and also has a great, sunny terrace.
Inga was really friendly and welcoming and also organised transfers for us, which worked well. We didn't have a car, and enjoyed the walk into Lumbarda (a gentle 15 minute stroll) and used the bus to get into Korcula town.
The little beach area opposite the villa was great for lazy days. Overall, highly recommended.

Lumbarda's G spot -- Great location, Gracious hosts and Good accommodation

Lumbarda's G spot -- Great location, Gracious hosts and Good accommodation
  • 5 of 5
We are just in the planning stages of our spring trip for 2014 and I was reminiscing about our trip last year to the South Dalmation coast of Croatia and realized I had not reviewed Inga's Villa Diha. Inga and her husband were exceptional hosts. Totally unpretentious, they helped with everything from the taxi to pick us up from the ferry, bicycle rentals, getting us sorted for our next destination Mljet, laundry and recommendations of every sort.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and the swimmers in the group (all but me!) loved the crystal clear swims mornings and afternoons in front of the Villa. We cycled to Korcula twice, but just walking into Lumbarda for groceries or dinner or cycling the countryside there was wonderful.

The best thunderstorm I've ever experienced comparable to Lake Huron on our first night. Unforgettable!

Peaceful Honeymoon Retreat

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent three nights in the one-bedroom apartment in July 2013 as part of our honeymoon, and it lived up to its description and photos. The apartment was very clean, comfortable and well equipped, especially for making meals. We enjoyed lounging on the rocks and swimming right across from Villa Diha as well as taking in the sunsets from our deck. We took many walks to Lumbarda, including for groceries and a romantic dinner at Restaurant Feral with its awesome Grk wine. We also hopped the bus every day to Korcula, which was very easy and economical. Inga was a great resource for us, helping us figure out the bus schedules, providing sun loungers and arranging for a taxi when it was time to leave. Spending time in Korcula and a day trip to Mljet are absolute musts! We would absolutely recommend this property to anyone heading to Croatia. Inga, thank you for your hospitality!

Wonderful, relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed 5 nights in the second floor two bedroom apartment. Booking and planning for our arrival was very easy - Inga was excellent to correspond with via email and arranged transport for us from Dubrovnik to Korcula. The apartment was lovely and very clean. Inga and her husband were wonderful hosts and were happy to answer our questions about the area etc. The apartment is across the street from a very nice small stone beach with a dock for swimming or sunbathing. The village of Lumbarda is approximately a 15 min walk - there you can find a grocery store, restaurants (Feral was recommended by Inga and also our favorite), sandy beaches and local offices for tours, scooter rentals etc. The village of Korcula is about 5km away - very easy to get to by bus (stop is a 3 min walk from the apartment and trip costs approx $6 roundtrip). Very much enjoyed our stay and hope to return sometime soon.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I stayed in the one-bedroom apartment at the end of September. We read rave reviews on Tripadvisor that sounded too good to be true but I vowed to come back on these sites to say that it was all true. We stayed at the end of September for four nights and had such a relaxing time and the weather was fantastic. Inga and her daughter were the perfect hosts - there if we asked but not if we didn't. Inga negotiated a good deal with a local car hire firm and gave great tips on a brilliant, local restaurant and a fabulous beach.
The apartment itself was spotless, we had the use of a BBQ and padded out the few metres for a dip in the sea each morning. A perfect break in idyllic surroundings.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for this Kate,we look forward to seeing you again at Villa Diha.
We are also more than happy to arrange bookings on behalf of our guests for car rentals, door-to-door minibus transfers from Dubrovnik, taxis and day trips to the island of Mljet National Park.
We are not affiliated with any of these providers and we do not receive commissions from them. We simply have experience in who the best providers are in terms of service and value for money and therefore feel comfortable recommending them to our guests. Once again I'm glad you enjoyed your holiday with us.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
A couple girlfriends and I spent a few days in one of the upstairs apartments this past July. We had such an amazing experience. The owner is extremely accomodating and had great recommendations for us. The view is fantastic, plus the water is just steps from the apartment! The only thing that would have improved our experience is if we could have stayed longer. Lumbarda and the apartment were the highlights of our Croatian adventure.

Lumbarda is a small and picturesque seaside village situated on the eastern coast of Korcula Island. The village is built in a secluded and picturesque cove with breathtaking views across the numerous tiny islands. It is a very popular tourist spot boasting the only sandy beaches on the island with the most popular (and busiest) being the sandy beach of Vela Przina. There are several taverns and restaurants in the village to give you the taste of the local cuisine as well as the famous dessert wine made from Grk grapes cultivated in Lumbarda. Lumbarda is only 5 kilometers from Korcula Old Town which is a perfect example of a medieval Dalmatian town with red sloped roofs and thick defensive stone walls. Korcula is rich in historical monuments, cathedrals, galleries and embodies the essence of Dalmatian ambiance. There is also an abundance of delightful cafes and restaurants to tempt your taste buds. Dubrovnik is easily accessible by car, ferry and a daily door-to-door taxi service.
