About the Owner

We are UK citizens lucky enough to spend time in Gocek each year, usually during spring and autumn.

We first sailed into this lovely area in 1998 with our family, we loved the village so much, we all decided to make Gocek our second home.

Gocek is a safe and welcoming place for visitors. It truly is paradise here on the Turquoise Coast and we are very grateful to the Turkish people and their government for allowing us to be a part of their community.

Knowing Gocek for so many years we enjoy it more each visit; the Turkish people, climate & location make it unique. Gocek retains its village atmosphere and visitors are welcomed as friends as soon as they arrive.

The village is located in an an area of exceptional natural beauty; we invite you to 'come share the bliss'

Guestbook comments from the owner

August 2009 Mr and Mrs Dugard. 'All we can say is wow! We had a wonderful time in your beautiful villa, never left the pool side during the day as it was so peaceful and relaxing, the garden is stunning to say the least and everything went like clockwork with transfers. Gocek is a lovely town and actually cheaper than Kas!'

great villa with pool

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa and pool in a fantastic setting. The villa is well maintained and provided everything we needed. The neighbours are always friendly and surprised us with delicious homemade cakes.

Within walking distance to the centre of Gocek where you can find everything you need. There are some great restaurants looking out over the marina.

A great place for a lovely relaxing holiday.

Fantastic relaxing family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Met at the airport by Orion cars, who wasted no time in getting us safely to villa oleandra, which is in a beautiful peaceful location with a gorgeous garden and a villa that has everything that you could need. The welcome pack was brilliant as we got a cup of tea and toast before bed, which were all lovely and welcoming and the air conditioning was a necessity for the first couple of nights. We found putting it on for about an hour before going to bed made it easy to get to sleep as the room was cool. The gardener visited every day and checked the pool too so it was perfect. The owners dropped by and left us there number in case we needed anything. A short walk takes you into the village with a great selection of excellent restaurants and shops for groceries. Kebab hospital and west cafe were definite favourites, and some provided take away deliveries too. The water station is a great addition and we had great fun ordering a new bottle, which was delivered and installed for £5, what an amazing service and a great addition for a family villa. We are hoping to book for next year, as this has been a brilliant holiday. The chemists are great for advise re children's minor ailments and antibiotics can be purchased across the counter. There is a dentist and a doctor in the village also if required. All the restaurants have friendly, helpful staff and are great with children. Plenty of boat trips can be taken from the sea front in gocek, and a free trip on the ferry from the skopea marina to the Hamam is a great day out. Sandra and sandy were great putting us at ease and we will certainly be recommending their villa to our friends and family, but only after our booking has been confirmed first. Overall, a first class holiday, in a wonderful villa, with private pool, beautiful gardens and a warm welcome at every restaurant. This place is paradise in every way. Orion cars also do reasonable car hire and the main roads are easy to navigate. Fethiye, seregerme, dalyan, Kalkan and Kas are all great day trips with a water park in Fethiye and great restaurants. Ferris to Meis Island and Rhodes are also available in Kas and Fethiye, although they depart early and booking is essential. Gocek has an office where you can book safaris, paragliding and trips and tours, although we prefer doing our own, even if it involves getting lost. A fantastic holiday, don't just look.........book!

Owner's Response: Dear Var & family Thank you for such a marvellous review. We are so happy Villa Oleandra and the village of Gocek met your needs and expectations during your visit in September 2015. Like you, we think Gocek village with its beautifully clean harbour and spectacular bays, excellent restaurants, food shopping and friendly people is one of the most special places in Turkey. Once visitors discover Gocek, many return for another visit and we would be delighted to see you again sometime in the future. Mr & Mrs Buchanan

Sunny haven

  • 5 of 5

The villa was lovely, very clean and comfortable. It is tastefully decorated and very well equiped. However for me, the highlight was the garden. It felt so secluded with the forest as a backdrop, colourful flowers, large pool and shaded seating area. Great for lazy days. When we could tear ourselves away, Gocek, with supermarkets and ample restaurants, was about a ten minutes walk. There are beaches close by to drive to, boat trips from the harbour, a dolmus to Fethyie...a week wasn't really enough.

Paradise indeed! Mr & Mrs Buchnan

Gocek, Turkey

Wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our villa in Gocek was a beautiful clean and well maintained property. Set in the village across from a mature woodland, it was extremely peaceful and restful. The villa is well equipped and very tastefully decorated. Outside there is a lovely swimming pool with several seating areas some of which are suitable for dining. The gardens and pool are maintained everyday. The restaurants in Gocek are good and the people very friendly. If a car is available there are lots of things to see and do in the surrounding countryside. The open air market on a Sunday is well worth a visit. The villa is only 30 minutes from the airport which is a plus.

Outstanding holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from our third stay at Villa Oleandra and it never fails to live up to expectations. It is well furnished and situated. Only a 10 minute walk into the centre of Gocek but in a lovely quiet location.

The setting is ideal if you really want to chill out by the pool and forget all about the stress of modern life. All amenities are within easy reach so you can either eat out at the fantastic selection of restaurants or shop at one of the supermarkets to BBQ or cook in the villas well equipped kitchen.

The villa owners are always helpful and friendly as is the local agent if they are not around to answer any questions or to help with car hire etc.

If you really want to chill and unwind then this is a wonderful place to do it!

From the Owner

Gocek is just simply the nicest place on the Aegean Coast of Turkey. Located a short 25 minute car journey from Dalaman International Airport and there is everything you could need in the village for shopping and dining out. Gocek does not attract the mass tourist market so there are no nightclubs or late night bars. Gocek is rarely overcrowded, although there is quite a "buzz" in July and August when the celebrity crowd from UK, Europe and Istanbul are visiting Gocek on their super yachts. Visitors will find a charming upmarket habour town where the activity is based on sailing, relaxation, dining and family life.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Dalaman International Airport at 25 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : on the harbourside at 0.5 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Fethiye at 30 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : D400 at 0.75 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : on the harbourside at 0.5 Kilometres Nearest Beach : D-Martin Resort Beach at 1 Kilometres Car: not necessary

Port Gocek D-Marina beach 10 minutes walk.

Nearest market 5 minutes walk.

Village Square 10 minutes walk.

Villa Oleandra is 30 minutes transfer from Dalaman International Airport. There is a very good dolmus (minibus) service to Fethiye and Olu Deniz (change at Fethyie for Olu Deniz). Dolmus service to Dalyan (change at Ortaca). Guests staying for two or more weeks may like to hire a car for 5-7 days as there is lots to see within an hour's drive. Owners can help arrange car hire with local Gocek firm, guests pay the company direct.

Further Details:

Gocek is set in the middle of a large nature conservation area and development in the old village is strictly controlled by the local town council and the Turkish Government, consequently Old Gocek village retains a great deal of charm especially along the harbour side.

Venture inland and visit some of the amazing archaeological sites in this area and enjoy the breathtaking coastal and mountain scenery. Car hire available at reasonable rates and owners can help arrange this.

Sailing, water skiing, horse riding, scuba diving, are all within 20 minutes drive, hill walking and paragliding (at Olu Deniz) are just an hours drive.

There are more than 50 cafes and restaurants in Gocek and most offer free WIFI access to patrons. The food served is of very good quality from traditional Turkish cooking to modern 'fusion style' dishes. Fresh fish, organic locally grown meat and vegetables are wonderful and the Gocek farmers market (Sunday) is the best place to buy local produce. There are several supermarkets in the village and many ATMs and banks.

Gocek is well known for its world class sailing and offers visitors the chance enjoy an area of the Mediterranean that has retained much of its rural nature. There are many fantastic coves that can be reached only by sea.
