“Superb Apartment with Great Location and Amazing View”
Reviewed 2 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

In mid-May, 2015, my husband and I spent a week at the Apartment Plaza. To our great pleasure, the Apartment Plaza was the finest of the several hundred apartments we have stayed at during our last 50 years of travel. Unsurprisingly, our landlord Djinna has worked for a very long time at luxury hotels before buying and fixing up this small stone house, which she originally lived in herself, so she knows every inch of the property. She has used all of her skills to produce a dream apartment with every feature, amenity, and toy a traveler might want.

First, the location is splendid, just a brief walk from the historic center of Korcula. The walk is gorgeous, along the water and through the historic town. Nestled among a splendid garden and near a small ceremonial park and the beach, the apartment has a glorious stone balcony of great size that allows you to wallow in an amazing view of the Adriatic and the mountains. The locations was quiet while we were there. The ocean breeze kept it delightfully airy and fresh. When we arrived, Djinna met us in her car at the catamaran and drove us to the apartment, giving us a quick orientation to the city. When we left, she picked us up at 5AM and drove us to the ferry, staying with us until it was clear that the ferry was actually going to run. Djinna is perhaps the kindest landlord we have ever had the privilege to rent from.

When we opened the back door, we immediately saw how perfect he apartment was. It has a large bath with high tech shower, sink, bidet, toilet, and washing machine. Throughout the building there are excellent thermopane windows that allow you to open them wide, to open them only at the top in a secure fashion, or to lock them tight.There is a long hall with coat rack and shoe storage area. This area is all in tile.

Just inside the hall is the living/dining room with a large comfortable dining table and chairs, good bright lighting, a leather reclining chair and couch, and an adjoining kitchen with every possible bell and whistle including oven, stove, dish washer, full sized fridge loaded by Djinna with treats (including a coffee maker, champagne, cookies, jam, butter, coffee, coffee creamer, etc), We also found good countertops for cooking and every possible dish, pan, cup, glass, wine glass (3 or 4 different kinds) that a finicky cook might want or need.

There is large well lit separate bedroom with a large comfortable bed with duvet with a spanking white cotton cover, as well a closets, additional towels, and chest of drawers, a mirror, etc This is an extremely comfortable bedroom, which made sleeping in a joy.

Everything you might want or need is in this apartment, including emergency medical needs in the bedroom bed stand drawers and spa toys in the bathroom including exfolients, scrubbers, special soaps, special lotion, shampoo, cream rinse, etc. There are special treats for the visitor everywhere, including jars of candied orange peel and sugared almonds, cards from the best local bakeries and restaurants, cookies frosted to look like the apartment, and a helpful book of instructions.

The entire apartment was not only in perfect repair, but also absolutely immaculate, like a magazine spread. I later learned that Djinna and her staff wash every dish, every surface, every throw, and every blanket between visitors. We felt instantly at home and deeply comfortable.

Djinna was the kindest and most generous of landlords. She answered my silly questions about how the washer and stove worked, took us to a local winery, took us out to a wonderful organic farm dinner in Pup Na, drove us around the island, and generally went way out of her way to make our stay enjoyable. This is rare generosity in the 21st century.

We found the beds extremely comfortable. The kitchen very practical and full featured. The bath was terrific, although there is a shower rather than a tub. The lighting throughout the apartment was excellent as was the heating and air conditioning. The apartment location was great.

The very best thing about this very full featured apartment is the balcony/terrace/loggia, which has a heavenly view that is captivating any time of day. There was a huge flat screen tv in the very comfortable living room, but we did not even turn it on. We spent all of our time on the balcony enjoying the view from dawn to dusk and listening to the birds, boats, and flower-scented wind. We also spent a lot of time walking Korcula town, which is practically perfect.

We can't recommend this apartment too highly. The only thing we did not find there was luggage stand to support your suitcase so you don't have to stoop to get into it. However, no one has these any more, including luxury hotels. So, that is not actually a criticism. We can't say enough good about this apartment. It is heaven.

This was by far the best equipped apartment we've stayed in on our 2 month tour through Croatia, Bosnia-H and Italy. It was an absolutely beautiful apartment, and Gina has made sure that it lacks for nothing. She really knows how to do it right, and she's also a wealth of information about the town and the island. Our stay at Gina's apartment couldn't have been better.

“Immaculate apartment”
Reviewed 19 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

A beautifully appointed apartment with everything you could possibly need, including a barbecue on the terrace which we made full use of. The apartment was spotlessly clean on arrival with an extensive range of equipment and furnishings to ensure a very comfortable stay. Furthermore, it was cleaned regularly during our two weeks when towels, bedding, toiletries, charcoal and some basic foods were also renewed. The apartment is very conveniently located, being just a few minutes walk from the town and beach. As well as this, the bus station and water taxis are also minutes away should you want to explore further afield.
Gina, the owner is available to answer any queries and give advice, even offering to transport you to places of interest on the island should you so wish. She met us on arrival and drove us to the apartment.
A lot of thought has been put into this apartment as to how to make your stay as pleasant as possible and we would have no hesitation in returning here again or recommending it to others.

We had arrived early and Gina took in our luggage. Not feeling like going far we had a lunch in the cafe at the corner. It was surprisingly good and although I was slightly anxious about noise from there, I had no need to worry. Gina fetched us and we were bowled over by the attention to detail in the apartment. It was like a hotel but better because it was an apartment. Great location. So close to town, a small shop 2 minutes away and a beach opposite. Gina suggested going for a swim at 8 a.m. as it is popular with families in the day. Brilliant. I was able to just walk straight in to crystal clear water. I decided to think of something that couldn't possibly have been supplied. My pet hate are blunt knives so I thought it'll fall down on that....no...there was a knife block with knives and a sharpener. Well done.
