TravelPod Member ReviewsVilla Depolo Korcula Town
It was clean and comfortable and just what we expected. Our host was very helpful and accommodating and her place was very clean and well kept. It was all we needed as two single females traveling and always on the go...a hot shower and a clean comfy bed to sleep in. Bonus: she provided use of her fridge and a selection of coffee and teas. I would stay there again and recommend to others. It's not a 5 star hotel with a spa...It is exactly as she described and exactly what we booked.

... promised by Ljubo at his friend's shop. We try a rose a white, (posip) and a red. We like the white, and buy a bottle to take back onto the boat.
Now for a wander through this delightful city, they call small Dubrovnik! We get to the city tower with the cocktail bar on top, and brave the wind for a cocktail. Kerry and Lesley join us, then Dagmar and Carl-Heinz. Great view of the sunset. Time to stagger down, looking ...
... all the rooms, it reminded us of being in the attic of a house. A definite downgrade from our nice clean airy apartment in Hvar.

Korcula is smaller than Hvar, the majority of the shops and restaurants are closed for the season, that made it seem even smaller. The town is surrounded by ...
... from the other boats over night; someone forgot to switch the tank to 'hold' mode - if moving everything is flushed into the sea. Balazs was onto it though and took us to another beautiful swim stop whilst breakfast was prepared. Then the real 'fun' began.
We were greeted with 3m swell following us as we rounded into the more open waters between Mljet and Korcula. A couple were seriously sea sick; Balazs had thrown a rope around Alex' body ...
... Our captain Mario welcomed us with a shot of something (just what we needed) and proceeded to drive us around. Mario was a really nice and interesting guy and we all enjoyed spending time with him. He made a couple stops where we jumped off the boat and spent some time in the water. The water was blue and at a nice temperature. He gave us snorkels, but there really wasn't much to see. Mario then jumped in and about 10 minutes later came back with a bucket full of ...
... and the floors were offset, too, providing as much privacy as possible. Generally kitchens were on the top floor of the buildings to keep the smells out of the town and to protect the rest of the building if there was a fire.
Korcula claims to be the birthplace of Marco Polo.
After a nice meal, we watched some of a local water polo match between the north & south of the town before retiring.
