If you come to Orebic (and I recommend you do) these apartments are a perfect option for you! We made the most of the balcony, getting breakfast and lunch from the fully-stocked market downstairs and eating (or drinking) overlooking the sea. Coming in May, we beat the crowds, but that also meant many tourist logistics were not operational (ferrys ran less frequently, tours were infrequent, many restaurants closed). Regarding the rooms: everything was a bit cramped, and the fixtures were a bit dated. For instance, we didn’t like the pillows and the bathroom was tiny. The apartment comes with a real double bed and double sheets, not two single pushed together, but it wasnt the most comfy ever….But the balcony made up for it, the wifi was strong, and as long as you don’t plan to actually cook a full meal, the rooms are definitely all you need to enjoy this beautiful part of the world. The family Lulak are terrific hosts and wonderful people. They’ll help you with everything you need, and if you get a chance to spend some time with them, you’ll quickly find new friends like we did. Hammer & Vesna: you’re welcome in our home if you can make it to SF!
