Most of the private accommodation on the island of Korcula is offered in apartments and rooms, which are both standalone accommodation units within private houses. There are two main types of the apartments: regular apartments and studio apartments. Regular apartments are self-contained accommodation units which consists of one or more bedrooms, their own kitchen, and at least one bathroom, while studio apartments are a self-contained, small apartments, which combine living room, bedroom and kitchen into a single unit or with the sleeping facilities situated on the gallery. Usually, the owners of the house also live in the house, in their own standalone apartment. If an apartment you would like to rent shares, for example, a terrace or a garden with the owner, this information is clearly indicated on our web site. In most cases, you do not share anything with the owner. It is important to know that, according to Croatian tourist service categorization, all apartments and studio apartments must have a kitchen, so all apartments are self-catering type of accommodation.
We also offer accommodation in standalone holiday houses and rooms. Villas (holiday houses) are ideal choice if you want to have complete privacy, and be alone in the entire house. Since most accommodation rentals are organised as apartments rental (which means two or more apartments or rooms in one house) it is very hard to find entire houses available for rent, but the number of accommodation available in holiday houses is slowly growing each year. You can check our offer of holiday houses and villas on the island of Korcula. On the other hand, accommodation in rooms is perfect for urban areas, where one has lots of offer of food etc. because rooms which are available for rent usually come without the use of the kitchen, and if you choose this type of the accommodation, you will not be able to prepare own meals in booked accommodation. This type of an accommodation, is ideal type of for those who just need a place to sleep and a bathroom. There is also possibility of renting rooms with breakfast, commonly referred to as "bead and breakfast" ("b&b"). Please check our offer of accommodation in rooms on the island of Korcula and our offer of b&b accommodation on Korcula.
There exist 4 different type of accommodation: apartment (A), studio-apartment (AS), room (S) and house (K). Each accommodation unit in our offer is identified by a code, for example "A-219-c (4+1)". The first part is the type of the accommodation unit, followed by the number of the house, and then by code of the apartment in the house (in this case "c"). "4+1" signifies that there are 4 basic and 1 additional bed in the apartment. Since a room in apartment can have maximum 2 basic beds, this also signifies that there are 2 separate bedrooms un this apartment, and 1 additional bed, usually in the living room. Detailed information about number of rooms, number of beds, size of rooms, additional beds, type and location of additional beds etc. can be found in description of each accommodation unit in our offer.

Next important criterion is the number of persons. It is important to note that if you have found an apartment or house that you like, but you have a person or two above capacity, it is possible to send the inquiry for the available capacity and ask the owner is it possible to accommodate persons above capacity. This can be done in under "additional questions" while sending reservation request. Also, if your group is large, and there are no apartments large enough to accommodate entire group, you can select "in more than one accommodation unit" option, which will provide offer of houses with 2 or more apartment that can accommodate the entire group.
