One Bedroom Apartment in a Dream Bay, Pure Oasis

Absolute water frontage with panoramic 180 degree views of the Adriatic sea & and direct access to a private beach...

Magic harmony of stone, the sun and Adriatic sea were born in a love story of stone and wood.

An attractive villa built directly above the sea is a true queen in a beautiful bay on the island of Korcula known as Stracincica.

The villa is surrounded by olive groves and just a 10 minute-drive from Vela Luka, the home town of famous Croat singer Oliver Dragojevic.

Intimacy of individual terraces, infinite view of the sea, a beautiful ambiance and a private beach create an idyllic image of the solitude-seeking tourism.

The house is divided into 4 suites, each with its own entrance and a large, shaded terrace with a stone table. On the ground floor there is a common summer kitchen with a grill and a stone sink, where you can prepare delicious octopus or freshly caught sea bass. There is a parking area above the house. Puppies of all sizes and good manners are warmly welcomed.

Apartment no. 1 on the ground floor (max 5 persons)

...has a living room with a kitchen, optically separated bedroom (a curtain instead of doors, unlike the other apartments), bathroom and a large terrace without a fence (unlike the other apartments). The kitchen is equipped with a fridge (with in-built freezer), cooker (3 x gas, 1 electric hob), water heater and all necessary dishes. The living room has air-conditioning, Sat TV, stylish furniture, chairs, a two-seater and a bed for one person (80 x 190). The bedroom has a double bed (180 x 200) and a pull-out sofa for 2 persons (170 x 200). On the large terrace there is a beautiful stone dining table, and further down the terrace there is another stone table, chairs and a knitted deckchair.

Apartment no. 2 on the first floor (max 6 persons)

… differs from the above apartment in having a fenced balcony (which is practical for small children and pets), a bedroom with a double bed (no additional couch), which is physically separated from the living room with doors (allowing privacy), living room with 2 pull-out sofas, each for for 1 adult or 2 children (140 x 200).

Apartment no. 3 on the second floor (max 4 persons)

…is almost identical to the apartment no. 2. It has a somewhat smaller living room and only one pull-out sofa (140 x 200), which means that it is suitable for a family with two small children.

Apartment no. 4 on the third floor (max 4 persons)

…is on the top floor and has a stunning view from the fenced terrace. The living room has a pull-out sofa (165 x 200), suitable for 2 adults. The bedroom is separated from the living room by a corridor (but has no doors). The rest is the same as in the other apartments with a cooker having only 2 gas stove-plates.

You will be so absorbed by the sea view from the terrace, that you will forget everything else! Reading a book, meditation, yoga and drinking a glass of premium wine is the best activity that you can do there. You can order a dinner with your host Mrs.Maya to be delivered to your apartment and then have a candlelight dinner at your terrace, watching the moon shining in the dark sea while gazing into the eyes of your spouse. Find a true re-connection to your partner, yourself and to what really matters to you. So many honeymooners stayed here and were delighted with the nature, the proximity to the sea and the stunning architecture and design - so authentically Mediterranean, and so cute and cozy. A real love nest!

                                                                Our host, Sasha, was wonderful! Kind, patient, accessible .....

                                                                Relaxation potential unlimited

                                                                Could have available for guests beach towels, complimentary shower soap and shampoo, and plastic ware (cups, glasses, plates) for using outside. We were provided paper towels and toilet paper. WIFI was spotty, but we were told that by Sasha when we moved in (FYI....the best WIFI reception was in the bedroom). A written users guide for the property would be good (how to use the things on the property or in the apartment). Also, a more detailed written description of what is available close to this property.

                                                                thank you for your kind feedback and sharing your vacation experience with us.

                                                                Really a 5-star property

                                                                Elizabeth C.Ocala, FL USA

                                                                I only removed one star since the water was not potable. It would have been better to know this prior to arrival. However, that only diminished the stay some. The view is amazing - the photos do not do it justice. The terrace is fantastic. Sasha is a great host.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                thank you for sharing your holiday experience with us.

                                                                With kind regards,

                                                                Lovely family holiday

                                                                Tim J.

                                                                We had a great week. Ground floor apartment was clean and perfect for our family of four (daughter 14 and son 11). We survived without a hire car renting a small boat instead from Vela Luka which was great fun for shopping and exploring local bays and Priozd island. Ivan was very supportive and helpful during the week. Would strongly recommend this place, really peaceful friendly feel.

                                                                Even better than expected!

                                                                Andy D.

                                                                The service we got from the Adriatic Pearls was absolutely perfect - from the first contact to the final goodbye. And the apartment and the location were even better than expected, and we came with high expectations after looking at the pictures on the website. We loved the place and everything about it and hope that we will get the possibility to come back soon.

                                                                It is a perfect honeymoon location

                                                                Tjasha M.

                                                                We spent our honeymoon here and we had the most romantic time of our lives. The views, the tranquility, the food, local people... It all ads to one of the most fulfilled vacation we ever had. Coming back this year.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Dear Tyasha, thank you so much for your nice comments. You and your husband were wonderful guests and we loved hosting you in our apartments, especially for such a special occasion :) We are happy to hear that your honeymoon was unforgettable and that our apartment could contribute to the most fulfilled vacations with its romantic atmosphere, magical views and excellent quiet location directly at the beach. We will be happy to host you again in the future! All the best, Adriatic Pearls team

                                                                A getaway with complete privacy

                                                                Lea A.

                                                                A getaway with complete privacy was fantastic Although we rarely travel with agencies, we made ​an exception and you proved to be an excellent one. We wanted a furnished apartment close to the beach, remoteness from crowded cities, boat mooring, safe bay. And we got it all. It was very private and relaxing with a great sea view and modern apartment

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                We will buy the Nespresso coffee machine as you suggested

                                                                and offer our guests a possibility to buy the additional cups after they have spent the complimentary ones.

                                                                It is not easy to organize this, as in Croatia there is no possibility to buy all that, but we will go the extra mile and order it from Germany.

                                                                Because we want you to feel better than at home! :)
