About the Owner
About Alison Simmonds
We are Alison and Toby Simmonds. We have 2 children, Archie who is 11 and Finley who is 8. We also have Roxy the Bearded Collie who is 1.
Alison Simmonds purchased this apartment in 2007
Why Alison Simmonds chose
We bought the apartments in this area largely due to it being an up and coming area of Turkey and felt that it would be a good investment for our family's future. The area is really lovely, people friendly and always willing to help. It is also not too far for transfers from the airport, so is easy to get to.
What makes this apartment unique
We have enjoyed family holidays during May as the weather is nice and warm but not too hot for the boys. Alison visits with her mother in October to check the apartments over after the season, so far so good, they are in just the same great condition as when we bought them. The complex is so good for the children, safe and friendly and with the pool bar, you have no need to leave the complex if you don't want to.
