Brother and sister, we spent most of our childhood weekends on Ullswater in the Lake District. This is where our passion for sailing and outdoor activities began.

More recently the many interesting islands and beautiful Croatian coastline drew us here to Korcula. Fantastic weather and perfect conditions for so many activities made this opportunity a dream come true.

Whether you want a week away relaxing in the sun or an action-packed activity holiday, our accommodation in four apartments at The White House Lumbarda provides you with the ideal location, and all with fantastic views.

We’ll tailor every holiday to your specific requirements and look forward to welcoming you to paradise.


Jay is an avid watersports enthusiast dedicated to providing you with an immersive experience, whether that’s while kitesurfing with us in Lumbarda or during your sailing week.

He became a national high board diving champion and went on to pursue an early career as a professional coach with British Diving.

After university he took a year out in Canada where he became a snowboarding and skiing instructor teaching in Whistler. He then spent the summer season leading canoe tours down the river of Golden Dreams and Romance.

In 2007 Jay and his Business partner Laura bought and renovated a ski chalet in Bansko, Bulgaria. Total Chalets was created offering great value high quality catered ski chalet holidays. Currently Total Chalets has multiple award winning chalets in Bansko and a Chalet Hotel in Andorra.

Over the past 10 years Jay has spent his summers teaching kitesurfing all over Europe in places like Tarifa, Spain, Greece and more recently Croatia.

He has continued to embrace his love for sailing and has progressed through to the RYA Ocean Yachtmaster level. Most recently, he has worked as a professional yacht delivery skipper and for a number of summer seasons as a flotilla skipper.

Jay is passionate about helping you learn and improve your confidence at sea,  whether sailing or kitesurfing.

No matter if you’re a novice or an expert, Jay looks forward to hanging out with you on the water!


Clare will be your main contact when preparing for your holiday.

She has spent much of her working life in administration and customer service. She joined Total Chalets as resort manager in 2019 and this is where her passion for the total holiday experience began.

Clare enjoys a variety of active hobbies; playing tennis and golf, and hiking and cycling in the summer.  In winter she ski tours and loves to go snow shoeing.

You will regularly find her exploring the Pirin National Park (in Bulgaria), where she lives from November to April. During the Spring and Summer she still enjoys time sailing on the ocean, when not helping guests plan their holidays to experience what Croatia and Korcula have to offer.

Clare will be there to look after you from your initial enquiry through to the moment when you make your journey home.
