House in Gradina

The perfect vacation home for escaping from the hassles of everyday life. A partly renewed ( eastern half)of an old vacation home on the seaside (6m), with a small pebble beach and boat jetty. Both rooms are with a seaview.The nearest neighbours are 200m away .


The location of the house is its biggest advantage. Its a 5 min walk through an olive grove and you are in a world of your own, away from the remaining crowded areas inside the bay!!!
The bay of Gradina is a shallow max 6metre deep safe anchorage facing west. It has about 80 houses which are mostly rented during the summer months. There is a restaurant "SILOKO" in the bay.
During July and August there are many yachts anchored in the bay overnight.


As per the anemity list.
Outdoor BBQ ,terrace,rooms with sea view,sunloungers,parasols,pebble beach in front of the house perfect for kids,boat jetty and your own vegetable garden in the back yard with organic grown :tomatoes,cucumbers,zucchinni,peppers etc.


Depending on their wishes. Available at all times to help if required. I can assist with arranging boat trips, fresh fish,wine etc....
I do boat /fishing trips with the guests and this usually is the highlight of their vacation.


Fresh water is the biggest concern.
Guests are kindly requested to save water as the house is on an island and very difficult to deliver water. This can of course be done in an emergency,but if you take care shouldnt be a problem.


额外房客 无需付费
押金 $485



As they would on their own property.
Kindly turn off all electrical appliances when leaving the premises and keep the doors closed when air-con running.
The house is on an island sothere is no running water. The water is rain water from a cistern so great care must be taken to save water and use it rationally.

House rules are displayed on the premises.

需爬楼梯 - The 2nd bedroom is on the first floor so it is not suitable for infants and small children.
房源里不能停车 - The car parking is on the embankment 200 m from the house. Although this might seem inconvenient, its actually an advantage as it guarantees privacy.

Grano, Lucias dad who is your contact has solutions for just about all my comments but I wanted to be honest in my review. He is great! Very secluded and beautiful location. We RECOMMEND a small car. There is a one lane road to the house and there is very little room to pull over to the side. The walk from the parking to the house is not long but not short and is gravel. We had backpacks so it wasn't an issue, but with large luggage Grano would need to help. House was very clean and all the basics are provided. Even a drip coffee maker (not all places do). The house is a little smaller than the exterior pictures show. You technically get half of the house pictured. The other half is empty and not accessible. Grounds are very nice and the garden produces all sorts of veggies for you if they are ready. Go to Tommys supermarket which is about 10 minutes away for food if your not going to eat out every meal. Being on the water is amazing. Boats dock in the bay throughout the day and night but they were never loud. Overall great place with an amazing view, as long as you know it's a bit out of the way which is exactly what we were looking for.

We had an absolutely amazing time in Gradina. Even before we came there, Grano (Lucia's father) made sure that we got the right ferry information and he even picked us up from the ferry and accompanied us to the house. We felt at home straight away: The house is amazing. It definetely exceeded our expectations. The garden is lovely and the pebble beach is just perfect. This was absolutely paradise for us and we can highly recommend to stay there. We also want to say that the boat trip Grano took us to was one of the best experiences we had on Korcula. Our little kids absolutely loved the swimming in the sea and the boat trip. Hvala for your hospitality, Grano! (or Koala, as our kids always said :-)

Absolutely great place - for either family with kids or without. The best host, awesome house, great water quality, nice restaurant nearby, Vela Luka is a pleasant nearby town with a good choice of restaurants and bars. Anyhow, full recommended!

Grano is a lovely host. Very communicative - excellent English speaker, so there is no barrier there. He was very helpful and quick to provide clear instructions for check in / check out. Grano's/Lucia's house is just as pictured and described, the location - on a small peninsula called Sveti Ivan on Gradina bay, a peaceful place close to Vela Luka - is incredible, just in front of the sea. The view from the house is simply stunning! The house has direct access to a small private beach. It also has a large private garden. Since there are practically no neighbours nearby, privacy is guaranteed. All in all, we had a wonderful and very relaxing stay, everything was lovely and clean and very very comfortable :) It has everything one needs for a fantastic holiday. It is truly a fantastic place! Would definitely recommend! :) We will be back I am sure! Thank you, Grano!

My wife and I have just returned from 2 weeks at Lucia’s place in Gradina. The photos and reviews on Airbnb set high expectations but upon arrival, at became clear that these were more than justified. The house is set at the end of a gravel path, with beautiful views over the bay and surrounded by a well-maintained garden with various growing vegetables and fruits which are available for the guests to use. Inside, the accommodation is modern, spotlessly clean and has everything necessary for indoor cooking and outdoor barbeques. A few steps down to the jetty reveals a private beach area ideal for feeding the fish and snorkelling. We saw starfish and a small octopus lurking close to the jetty. We would single out Lucia’s father, Grano as the person who really made the holiday special. He was always friendly, mindful of our privacy, very generous with his time and gave us the benefit of his local knowledge. He often obtained for us the freshest fish and meat from the market which he would deliver in the morning. In addition, being an avid fisherman, he was kind enough to give us some surplus fish that he had caught and showed us how to prepare them. With the available vegetables from the garden, a large brick barbecue and plenty of wood, it wasn’t necessary to go to restaurants as we spent most evenings cooking and eating al fresco. The highlight of our vacation was the two fishing trips with Grano. Having cooked us lunch, we set off and spent the remaining day, into the evening, cruising around the islands, targeting a range of fish including calamari. We also may have got through the odd beer or two. OK maybe three. Grano’s passion for fishing is contagious and we would thoroughly recommend this experience at least once during a stay. Hiring a small car would be useful to get to and from the supermarket in Vela Luka, and spending some time travelling around the island as it offers breath-taking scenery. In summary, it would be difficult to fault anything about our experience. We came away having enjoyed every day of the holiday and feeling thoroughly relaxed. We would highly recommend this accommodation and will certainly be returning.

Aufgrund der tollen Bilder und makellosen Besucher-Reviews traten wir den Urlaub fast zwangsläufig schon mit recht hohen Erwartungen an. Und diese wurden sogar noch übertroffen! Dieses Juwel begeistert auf allen Ebenen: Perfekte Lage, wunderbare Privatsphäre, kristallklares Wasser, sehr schön gepflegtes Haus mit Garten und last but not least mit Grano ein perfekter Gastgeber. Er ist überaus freundlich und zuvorkommend, dabei stets um Diskretion bemüht. Das ist eigentlich so eine Art Unterkunft, wo man lieber nicht möchte, dass allzuviele Leute darauf stossen und die Chance damit grösser wäre, für ein Wiederkommen noch verfügbare Zeiten zu finden. Wenn man jemandem jedoch den Erfolg gönnen möchte, dann ist es Grano und seinem wunderbaren Anwesen.

Wir waren bereits zum zweiten Mal in Gradino und alles war wieder Perfekt. Das Haus ist mit der tollen Lage direkt am Meer einfach Traumhaft. Wir konnten mit Grano einen tollen Bootsausflug mit Sunset-Dinner erleben, dieses Erlebnis ist definitiv zu empfehlen. Wir werden wieder kommen.
Hi Dominique/Thomas, Thanks for being our guests it has been a pleasure to have you, and hope to see you again.
