About Alison Morel

I have lived in Selcuk for many years 30 years, in fact. Originally I came backpacking and stayed. How lucky I am to live in such a beautiful part of the world.

Selcuk appealed to me very much due to the wonderful history and culture, the beautiful scenery, the friendly people. The town is small enough to be very comfortable and large enough to provide all that is needed for a good life.

Alison Morel purchased this house in 2015

Why Alison Morel chose Selcuk

Sunset House is spacious and light and airy, the wonderful terrace makes this property fantastic in summer and winter, being fully air conditioned makes it even more comfortable.

What makes this house unique

The views from the spacious terrace of the Byzantine castle, over town and as far as the sea makes this property stand out from many others.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I just wanted to express on behalf of all of us, our huge thanks for making our stay at Sunset House so warm and welcoming. It's a delightful house to holiday in and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.



Thanks for being such a helpful host and for all your advice and information prior to our arrival. It was most appreciated.



We'll certainly be recommending the house to other friends and family who may be wishing to holiday in the Kusadasi region.



Many thanks once again and enjoy the summer season.



With all best wishes,

Very quiet, clean and confortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a really wonderfull stay in Selcuk in Sunset House. This apartment is clean, confortable and well furnished. We didn't had any car and it was really convenient to walk downtown or take the train or dolmus to visit around. Moreover, we really enjoyed the terrace with a wonderfull view on St John's basilique. Alison has been very helpfull during our stay and gave us good advices. So, to summarize, we had wonderfull vacations :-)

A wonderful place to choose for your holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully furnished property - every little detail has been carefully thought through. The villa was very clean and well-maintained - the owner obviously takes pride in looking after it. A big plus is the balcony with amazing views over Selcuk and out towards Ephesus and the Mediterranean.

Alison provides a great personal service, offering advice on the best places to see and eat at, and arranging trips if needed.

Sunset in Selcuk

  • 5 of 5

Sunset in Selcuk

Selcuk a short hop on the train from Izmir, a traditional Turkish farming town with friendly people, plenty of bars, cafes and restaurants, the town has bags of history and character, old stone houses, a Roman aqueduct with resident Storks nesting on the columns, a 14th Century Mosque and Byzantine Church, the surrounding rolling hills are dotted with ruins and the beach is only eight kilometers away and all that is only the warm up act for the main attraction of Ephesus, as of my visit granted World Heritage Status.

Sunset house is the perfect place to stay-with so many things to keep you busy during the day what better than to come home-and it really does feel like home and sit out on the larger terrace, pour a drink and watch the sun set behind the fortress, BBQ or dinner with a cool summer breeze and spectacular view, a peaceful neighborhood with swallows darting about the rooftops, local shops selling all you need from fresh bread to beer, the house has everything you will need including the little details that make a difference such as coffee machine and good selection of glasses.

Alison the host will charm you as much as Selcuk, warm and friendly and attentive, she knows the area well and understand her guests and how to look after them.

You may only come to visit Ephesus but Selcuk will charm you and you will want to stay much longer.

All the best and thank you again, Alison
