Experience real Turkish holiday in comfortable, well appointed and cozy environment.

  • 5 of 5

Steve and Elaine have created a wonderful stting for a family or small group of friends to experience small town life in an historic property that has been lovingly restored and modernised. The villa is cozy yet spacious with a large garden and pool. It is near the beach, historic Side and Manavgat waterfall. Your hosts will ensure you will be comfortable and can guide you to local amenities including shops, retaurants and tourism. Highy recommended! Rob from London

A lovely house and wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

We (mum, dad, 2 girls, aged 6 & 5) enjoyed 2 weeks in July at this beautiful villa in peaceful Ilica. As well as providing a house, garden and pools of the highest quality, the owners, Steve and Elaine, also saw to the little things that make so much difference: a local tour for orientation, tea, coffee, milk, bread, pastries, a welcome bottle of wine and more. No need to trudge straight out to the shops to fill empty cupboards here! We've rented quite a few holiday homes but not one where so much care was taken over us by the owners. No hesitation whatsoever in giving a 5-star rating. It's hard to see how it could be any less for such a quality place and such warm, helpful hosts.

amazing villa

  • 5 of 5

Stunning villa within a small turkish community , the villa itself was outstanding , to the large bedrooms with en suites , large living and dining areas and the beautiful decor gave the villa a country cottage feel . We were made to feel at home from the second we arrived and steve and elaine were the perfect hosts . The views and the peaceful surroundings were an added bonus just a short taxi down to the busy nightlife and shops . We had the perfect holiday from start to finish with our own pool to enjoy . Steve and elaine helped us on a daily basis with recommendations of what to do and where to eat and often took us to meet the locals , the kind of service you couldnt possibly rate or expect at a hotel ... they made us feel like part of the family . Excellent villa and perfect location and genuine lovely freindly people . Steve and elaine ... sagol ... thank you .

private villa

  • 4 of 5

there's not much more to say than this is a very special place. It has everything, the local village life with luxury and close by are the bars and restaurants if you want more. The best of both worlds, culture and meeting the real life combined with excursions and night life if you want. Perfect!

A Great Villa!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in this beautifully restored villa, very clean and everything we wanted was there. We arrived late and were grateful for the welcome pack of food basics. Owners Steve and Elaine - live next door - were very helpful and provided us with lots of information about places to go, shop or eat. We even borrowed their bikes to explore the countryside with lots of wildlife; storks, hoopoe birds, turtles, frogs, hawks... and nice views of the Taurus Mountains.

Shops, restaurants, beaches were only a short drive away and we also explored in the ancient sites nearby. We hired a car to drive to Side (temples), Seleukia (old city in a forest), Aspendos (amphitheater) Oymapinar Dam and Manavgat waterfalls) and we really enjoyed the Oymapinar Adventure-Park (high ropes, well maintained,Tüv proof), all within an hours’ drive away. Would recommend it to all of you!

Villa absolutely fantastic, if anything even better than the website. Steve and Elaine are perfect hosts. Steve's local tour 1st day very informative. Always available to give advice on best restaurants/beaches and locations to visit. Nothing to much trouble for them. Very enjoyable break. Already booked for next year.
