About Max Gosling

Hello, I am a retired Royal Navy officer. I live on the south coast of England although originally from Sheffield, Yorkshire. ....I was originally looking to buy a property in Cyprus(My main criteria was for a villa within about 4 hours flying from the UK..).Then,by chance ,I was invited to help crew a yacht out of Gocek..A place I had never heard of! I fell in love with the place so went back in the winter to see how it faired..It was just as nice..So,I searched for a full week,viewing some 40 properties & decided on Cekers for its style & position..Please feel free to call me anytime if you need any further info or assistance...Best regards,


Max Gosling purchased this villa in 2006

Why Max Gosling chose Göcek

Originally thought of buying in Cyprus but was invited to crew a yacht out of Gocek. First time I had been to Turkey & fell in love with the beauty of Gocek & the islands of Gocek Bay. The people are genuinely friendly towards us ,the restaurants are of a high standard & the food is superb. Everything is immaculate & strict rules are enforced to keep the sea unpolluted. You can safely drink the tap water. My criteria was to buy a property within 4 hours flying time. Dalaman is inside that criteria. Modern airport so no hanging around & the roads are good. An important consideration is that you are under half an hours drive from Dalaman Airport which is SO important if you have spent a long day getting to Turkey on the first day of your holiday.

What makes this villa unique

The most important thing,for me, is that 'Cekers' is south of the by-pass so no busy road to cross and it is not up the very steep hill north of the by-pass. It is down a lane where there are only 5/6 villas, so very private. It has a walled garden with lots of lovely plants, fruit trees etc. It is a very nice, gentle walk through the pine forest into the village. There are 2 mini-marts very close by in case you have forgotten the ice cream! Lovely veranda for Pimms o'clock, overlooking the pool which looks particularly nice in the dark with the pool lights on. Wild tortoise often seen close by. My manager Turker & Meryem my cleaner only look after two villas so you get a very personalised service. Turker is an Oracle and they are both so helpful. Every visitor is happy with them.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have a 'visitors book' in the villa and all the comments have been extremely complimentary but the book is in Turkey so I cannot give you precise comments.

Super villa and pool

  • 5 of 5

Spacious villa with large terrace overlooking lovely pool, which was kept spotless. A 15-20 minute walk to the town, but very hot in August so we used the car most of the time. A great base for Gocek and the surrounding area. Excellent communication with Max from the first contact until we got back home. We had e very restful holiday and would recommend the villa and the area. This was our sixth year in the Gocek area and it was as welcoming as ever. A great range of restaurants and the newly paved high street has soem interesting shops and supermarkets. Limon was great value with a wide menu, best steak still at Mosaic.

Spacious, peaceful location, near town

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great about our stay. Spacious house, good sized rooms, shady location with big terrace next to pool. 15 min walk to Gocek centre, or regular dolmus, with a couple of local mini markets nearby. Very peaceful location, chickens wandering in garden, ducks on road etc. and good alternative route to town through pines. Excellent, quick and helpful communication with owner before and after stay, and from local contact while we were there, including help with arrival and departure transportation. Lots of good places to eat in Gocek, we went to Limon several times, Kebab Hospital, and Natural (which is closest to property) was also good. Only thing we missed was wi-fi, but no big deal as we just wanted to relax, and we could get online at all of the bars and restaurants in town.

Spacious character villa with lovely pool

  • 4 of 5

Villa very spacious and lovely open layout. Perfect veranda area always in the shade with a casual seating area and separate table and chairs. The villa felt very private and tranquil yet near the main route into Gocek. It was too hot for walking in the day but we used the bikes provided, to cycle into the town in the mornings - great way to explore. Loved the pool with its shallow end and steps, perfect for children. Daily visits from local chickens lovely condition and fun to watch. Insect screens allow for doors to be kept open but had no trouble with any insect all holiday, even when sitting on the veranda in the evening. We didn't use the kitchen for cooking as a great choice of restaurants locally and excellent value, our favourites are Kebab hospital, Natural (best casserole), and Limon. Air conditioning in 2 of the bedrooms which was efficient and necessary. Villa was spotless and the pool area was attended to and hosed down everyday early in the morning so this didn't interrupt us in the day which we appreciated. Great communication with the owner before our holiday and then with the local representative whilst we were there. Loved every minute, and returned home feeling very well rested and wouldn't hesitate to return.
