Apartment in Altinkum, Turkey - Large Pool, and Close To Beach
This modern, spacious 2 bed apartment has super views and a very bright, sunny feel. The large pool, gardens and communal areas are attractive and well finished. The beach is less than 10 minutes walk away. The apartment is fitted out to a very good standard with everything you could need for a holiday, all brand new. All the amenities of Altinkum are on your doorstep including beach front restaurants and bars and plenty of shops. There are also authentic [and very cheap!] Turkish restaurants for those who want to experience the real Turkey - these tend to be set further back away from the sea front. There are a variety of cultural sights that are in easy reach of Altinkum such as the Temple of Apollo, the ancient city of Ephesus, the spectacular beach and temples at Dalyan.

About Linda Miller
We live in South East London, with our two cats Taz and Bailey. Linda is the head teacher of a large primary school, and Steve is a freelance marketing consultant. This flexibility, plus the school holidays, allows us to visit our properties regularly and make sure that they remain in excellent condition. We treat our properties like our own home - so you can guarantee that everything is working properly, is well maintained and very clean.

Why Linda Miller chose Turkish Aegean Coast
The Turkish people are genuinely friendly, and the waters of the Agean are remarkably clear and clean. Altinkum has 3 fantastic sandy beaches ideal for families. Being outside of the Eurozone means that your money goes that much further in Turkey - making it a very cost-effective country to take a holiday.
What makes this apartment unique
Buena Gardens is situated in an area known as Hunters Valley, so it is close to the main beach, but also set back far enough so as not to be effected by noise from the resort. Its location also makes it accessible to the shops and restaurants in Ataturk Boulevard, as well as being walking distance from the Saturday market. You can easily catch a dolmus (bus) up Ataturk Boulevard - all the way past the Temple of Appollo to the water park. Alternatively you can catch the dolmus travelling the other direction to the quiet resort of Yeselkent.

Very clean and comfortable
I booked this apartment at the last minute and the owner was very helpful in supporting this. The apartment was very clean and comfortable with everything you would need for an enjoyable holiday. The pool was also very clean and a pleasure to use. I would definitely recommend this apartment to friends and family and look forward to coming to Altinkum again so that we can stay here again.
Buena Gardens ☆☆☆☆☆
Loved staying here. Apartment had everything you needed for a great holiday and was spotless, 2 big balconies, new kitchen, open plan lounge/kitchen with table and chairs.2 good sized bedrooms and bathroom with walk in shower. Air conditioning was fantastic. Apartment block was quiet and we had the beautiful swimming pool to ourselves most days. Great location about 10 mins walk to centre. Lovely bar and restaurant opposite which served great food and a shop at the bottom of the road to get your basics. Communication with the owners was great and they have a contact in Altinkum if you have any problems. Just got back but have booked for next year. Would give it 10 stars if I could.
Great little family friendly propery

Would like to thank the owners for letting us stay and will highly recommend to others and will deffinatly look at booking again.

Very we'll located in a quiet area but near enough if you want loud music and beaches .
Met some really nice people both turkish and British .
Good communication with the owners whenever we got in touch always had a quick reply .
Enjoyed our stay very much will definately go back.
A very clean and pleasant apartment in a quiet area. Not too far to walk to the main resort and beach, however if you have difficulty walking be aware it is rough roads in places and a slight incline on a couple of routes. There are 3 routes to take you into the resort.
Be prepared to eat out most of the time as there is limited selection of foods to cook in the shops. Take a lighter with you to light the hobs as 2 are gas and 2 are electric. We bought a bread knife whilst we were there as there was nothing provided that would cut anything other than butter.
The living area was spacious and the TV and DVD player provided was a great plus for the afternoon siesta or evenings in. The main bedroom has air conditioning however the twin room doesn't and could feel quite hot with two sleeping in there. The beds however were pleasantly comfortable and plenty of storage for your belongings. The bathroom was plenty sufficient with hot water and also a washing machine provided. (We didn't use) but I would imagine very useful if you have young children.
The swimming pool was clean and a baby/toddler pool attached. We took our loungers from the balcony down to lie on but you might want to get a parasol as there isn't any shaded areas round the pool. A plus for us sun worshippers but some aren't so lucky and need shade.
Overall I would rate the apartment and holiday as a high 9 out of 10.
Brilliant week away!
I booked this apartment for me and my girlfriend for a week in Altinkum. The apartment was lovely with a modern finish throughout. The entire apartment was spotless with brand new furniture, clean sheets and towels. The kitchen was also fully stocked with crockery which was very useful for meals in. We loved the location with it only being a five minute walk from the seafront and far enough out to avoid any unwanted noise.
The pool was a great size and pretty quiet most of the week so there was no fighting for a sun bed!
We had a very nice welcome from Ali at Bar 365 opposite who gave us our keys. Everyone at 365 could not have been more helpful throughout the week and we went there often for a drink or breakfast.
All in all, we had a fantastic, relaxing week - would definitely recommend the apartment to friends and family.

The Aegean cost is particularly attractive due to the fantastic views over to the Greek Islands and Bodrum Peninsular. There are also a large number of sights of historical interest such as the ancient city of Ephesus [highly recommended], Temple of Apollo, and temples at Dalyan. There are also areas of outstanding natural beauty such as Dalyan and Pammukale. All of these locations can be visited as a day trip, either by hire car, or through the many organised tours that are available in town.
Altinkum has three safe, clean, gently sloping sandy beaches ideal for families. It is a lively resort with bars, restaurants overlooking the sea [international food], night clubs, a night market and a good weekly market in the main town area every Saturday. Away from the beaches there are some good quality local restaurants selling authentic Turkish food at very good prices - ideal for those who like to experience the real Turkey.
