Reviewed 14 July 2014

Toni and his parents were great hosts. As with hosts we met in other places in Croatia, they treated their guests like family. Toni's father Mario met us at the docks and even helped us with our luggage.

The location was wonderful and the town was beautiful. We affectionately called the apartment "the treehouse" because of the wood paneling. Out the windows you can see the Adriatic Sea and even some of the yachts docked at the waterfront. You can swim at the beach that's visible out the window although it is a little rocky and fit more for good swimmers or lounging on the pebble beach (you'll have to go to Lumbarda for sand). Once you shut the windows and blinds you could hear nothing from the outside although Korcula, unlike Hvar, is quiet and peaceful to begin with. Restaurants and the cathedral are within a 1 minute walk of the house. While there is no washer, there is a nice laundry line and pins outside that made it easy to dry our hand washed clothes and swim wear on the line.

Konzum (the grocery store) is about five minutes away by the entrance to the town so we were able to buy some groceries and do some cooking for breakfast; Tommy is a larger supermarket that's up the hill past the bus station. One tip: go to the Pekarna (bakery) Marco Polo (facing the west harbor) as they have all sorts of pastries, breads and hot burek for breakfast and lunch. You can eat your food at the circular plaza across the street.

We stayed for four nights and was very satisfied with our stay at one of the rooms. Great location and value for money. We had breakfast in the garden every morning, went to the beach, got back and went out for dinner. Since everything is in such a close range from the place we optimized our days in Korcula in a very good way.

Lucky, yes we where very lucky that we meet Toni when we got of the ferry. Best room and location this far on our Island hopping tour in the dalmatian archipelago. AC, TV, good beds and a small fridge in the room. Close to everything!

This was hands down the best value location and experience in an island paradise. Toni's father met us at the bus and made us feel welcome with a refreshment. His daughter Mia explained everything and was there anytime to help. This family is very warm and welcoming. Mia made sure that I knew about a boat race and extra Moreska dance that we weren't aware of... Fantastic.. It's a short walk to swim.. audio Made recommended was incredible.. Hidden ac room underneath.. Mario told us some family history and walks around the island.. The apartment is fully equipped with everything thought out very well. There were 2 need rooms and sitting areas... Great mattresses and pillows... Great water pressure and got water.... Some noise from the restaurant below... Not an issue for us as you can close the windows and use ac if it's hot..

Toni was great with helpful advise before and during our stay answering my many questions... We truly did not want to leave... Beautiful views from the bedrooms.. Private Patti, private garden.... Paradise !

Only stayed for a day but it served us well. Very clean and really a great location and very inexpensive. It's located right by the tower that has Bar Massimo on top. A very short walk of several hundred feet to the 6 AM ferry to Split was very convenient. Didn't use the kitchen so don't know how good it would be for longer stays. Very good and easy contact with the owner who is extremely helpful. The ceilings might be a little bit of an issue for people taller than 6 feet as they are almost all angled. If your looking to stay in the heart of old town this is an excellent choice.

The manager, Toni's mom, met the five of us at the gate and carried my roommate's and my suitcase to the upper rooms. (We are seniors.) She had a beverage and cookies waiting for us. She was so helpful and friendly. The apartment was a delight.... cheerful and clean with two sleeping areas, a kitchen, bathroom, tv, dvd, radio. Our windows faced the water....gorgeous! A pleasure to see the many boats sailing out in the morning and then returning at dusk! Apartment centerally located. Would definitely go back to Kanavelic Place again if we ever returned to Korcula.

These apartments are situated directly in the old town of Kocula Town. My apartment had an amazing view of the water and the Kanavelic tower, this apartments namesake. I booked an apartment with its own bathroom which was nice but not necessary, the shared bathroom was clean and it didnt appear that too many rooms shared it. I corresponded with Toni Reic and he was expedient with responses. Zlata Toni's mother met my group at the ferry and brought us to the apartments which was very helpful because the old town is a bit confusing. She then gave us a quick Korcula orientation. Very professional and friendly family run establishment. Clean nicly decorated rooms with A/C, the beds were not amazing but they were not too bad. I would definetly recommend Kanavelic Place if you are visiting Korcula Town.
