We had a wonderful time at Villa Sokol. Our hosts were extremely welcoming, helpful and professional. We were offered refreshments on arrival and felt relaxed straight away. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfasts, which changed each day and were brought to us on our balcony, such luxury! We also had fun using the bikes and kayaks, which were available for use. If a guest prefers not to use bike, feet, bus, or taxi, they might find a car useful for getting around, this was not a problem for us as we found plenty to do within a short distance including an excursion run by the proprietors ( Korcula Adventures). The nearest shop is about 20-30 minutes walk and the beach further so some form of transport is helpful, as and when you can drag yourself away from the beautiful view!

The hotel is a family house with several rooms converted to rentals. We rented two rooms. Each room has a private entrance, quite large and has private bathroom. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The place is easy to find and is centrally located. The rooms have strong wi-fi signal and air conditioning. Overall we had a very pleasant stay.

(August, 2013) Rooms Karla (RK) is in a good location - a very short walk outside the rather overpriced, slightly grubby Yachtie-dominated settlement of Podace, and within the National Park. The stone jetty on the waterfront of the RK is clean and a nice place to laze or swim from, with an excellent outlook on the upper part of the bay. The rooms in the main buildings close to the water are probably excellent, unless a thumping drunken party boat moors close-by for the night. The under-construction building further away on the other side of the road, has some good rooms at the front (slightly marred by an ill-placed sodium street lamp) but less well-placed ones at the back. The little kitchen is well-equipped and a better alternative than the over-priced, naively exploitative restaurants in town - the tired fruit and vegetables in the local supermarkets notwithstanding. However, the Mljet National Park is a joy to be in, and RC is a wonderfully located base from which to walk/run/bike/swim ... so, all-in-all, the RC, under the management of Andro and Ane Stražičić, and their 4 daughters is strongly recommended (it is named after Karla, the youngest), especially if you can book the main building rooms or the ones at the front of the building up on the other side of the road. When and if this rear building is finished, RK will be even better. I did not see anywhere else in Podace I would rather be.
We had a great 2 weeks in Villa Telenta. The villa is as described, easily accessible and very close to the sea. Our bedding and towels were regularly changed and the food was some of the best we had. We had a lovely shaded patio from which we could hear the comings and goings in the harbour. The villa owners were really friendly and helpful.

We were made to feel welcome before we even arrived with an email telling us how to get there and where to park. On arrival, we were greeted by the friendly owner who speaks little English but immediately phoned Petar, who came over, showed us to our room, asked what we were interested in during our stay and sent us a very informative email the next day with lots of useful information. The apartment was very clean and spacious, the kitchen area is small but extremely well-equipped, although in the end the nearby restaurants are so reasonable we always ate out, and the view from the balcony is amazing. We were offered clean towels during our stay, and we were always greeted with a smile morning and evening, making us feel very at home.
