About the Owner

We fell in love with Turkey the very first time I visited with the family and our view has not changed over the last few years.

Now the exchange rate is so good we can enjoy our 3 or 4 visits a year without much cost.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Arrived back from our 2 week holiday in Side on 11th Oct. Just wanted to let you know that we had a great time. The Mirage apartments were really lovely, we couldn't fault it and the service you provided was fantastic from the ease of booking to arranging the transfers. Thanks for a great holiday.

Samantha Elsy

Our stay at the Mirage Residence in Side last August was one of our best holidays ever. Our ground floor apartment was virtually new, one of only 32 units built around a glorious Olympic-size pool. Sunbeds and swimming were literally a few steps from our balcony. It was like living in an exclusive private estate. Apartment B1 was well appointed with good taste, avoiding needless extravagance and fussiness. Everything was well thought-out and designed for comfort and enjoyment. We just loved taking coffee on the rear balcony in the early-morning sun and meeting friendly people around the pool. This was our idea of the good life and we will be back! Stephen Cole March 2011 "

Hello Richard, This is just a note to let you know that we loved the Mirage complex and the B1 apartment. The flights were on time and the transfers happened as intended and the weather was great apart from a thunderstorm on the morning we were due to come home. We very much hope to return to Side in the near future and will definitely use Horizons to make our booking. Thank you for your help and I look forward to contacting you again when we return to Side. Best Wishes," Anne

Dear Richard, My wife and I stayed at Apartment B1 at the Mirage complex between October 2 and 11. We wish to comment as follows:- The apartment is in excellent condition with a well fitted kitchen and all the amenities required to have a wonderful stay. It was a special pleasure to have a drink on the spacious balcony in the evening overlooking the large and lovely floodlit pool. The Mirage complex has everything and we couldn't fault it at all. Side is a great place to visit, offering a delightful balance between beach and restaurants etc and Roman remains both in Side itself as well as nearby. We will return to this apartment again.It is really good. Jan and Tony Askew

Hi Richard; Have returned home safely after an amazing time in Side . This was our first time in this region and we loved it. Again ourselves and our friends cannot express how amazing the apartment was. Our friends have traveled a great deal using timeshare and they said that nothing can beat Mirage Residence. Everyone was so helpful and kind. Again Many thanks. Regards Kenny,May and friends

Rodham family, July 2014 "Second stay at this Complex and again had a great holiday. I'm a wheelchair user and the staff couldn't have made me more welcome and been more helpful. We hope to be back at Mirage again in the future. Thanks for sharing your apartment with us".

Stephen and Sam, July 2014

4th time here for us which says it all.

Side Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at the apartment in Side

It was very nicely furnished and clean

The only draw back was it was a bit far out from the restaurants but we managed

The only recommendation I would say is that there should be instructions for the washing machine

Thank you for a lovely time

From the Owner

Families will love the spacious accommodation and safe location; couples will love the romantic peaceful setting; nature lovers will appreciate the landscape and scenery; those in search of a hint of the real Turkey will love the traditional surroundings and nearby village shops; whilst beach and nightlife-lovers will appreciate it’s proximity to the livelier side. Side is quite unique and is steeped in history, but also offers something for everyone

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : ANTALYA at 65 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : cihan at 0.1 Kilometres Nearest Beach : SIDE at 1 Kilometres Car: not necessary

Special interest holidays:

The old town of Side has a rich history dating back 2700 years and for those interested in Roman history, well preserved ruins, etc, are everywhere, both in Side and the surrounding area.

Take a drive up into the spectacular Taurus mountains or a tour to Green Lake. Just one of many local attractions.

As we are dedicated to the Side area with a large number of homes in Side we have developed good relationships with local bars, restaurants, etc, and our guests receive preferencial services. For example book local tours through our local agent and you will recieve a discounted rate.

Feel free to call our UK office on 01246 410100 and speak to me, Richard, for first hand information on our homes and the resort.


There are two exceptional sandy beaches in Side, stretching for many kilometres in both directions. A car is not necessary as our several free pick up and drop off beach shuttles will collect you at any time without obligation.

I have 18 month old twins and 6 year old daughter and we never use a car or even a dolmus to get around; just the free services which are listed in our pre holiday information pack.


It is not necessary to rent a car and we can arrange Airport Transfers with a licensed private hire taxi company. The door to door transfer time is about 50 minutes. Cars can be hired in resort through our local manager on a daily basis from around £20 a day. Parking is available at no charge. Many airlines now fly to Antalya, some all year round so please feel free to ask our advice or we can do a quick search for the best rates.


From the community you can walk to many excellent restaurants, shops, bars, etc, and we offer numerous free shuttles to go further afield. You need never use a bus ,taxi, or hire a car.

Being self contained we can let the children play and relax. The views are also stunning and the onsite facilities are excellent. We can sit on the balcony just a few metres from the full length pool . Enjoy dining in sun or shade.

  • Notes on accommodation: As a ground floor unit with a balcony overlooking the magnificent main pool it is ideal for families. I cannot overstate how much we enjoy staying here, with our children right in front of our balcony, just playing in the pool. Or relaxing on the balcony with a glass of wine on lovely warm evening. Even at peak times in this small community there is always plenty of room around the pool. Also with the benefit of a heated indoor pool and taking into consideration Side as a resort is open all year round, this is the perfect holiday destination 12 months of the year. There is onsite security plus our own local manager will meet and greet you on arrival or shortly afterwards to show you around the home,how everything works, to help ensure a carefree vacation. Our manager is also on call 24/7 to deal with emergencies, plus the is round the clock security on site. Outside: As you can see the main swimming pool is a magnificent size, and throughout the season you have comfortable sun loungers. For the more energetic the main pool is great for lap swimming. The community has car parking, although a car is not necessary when staying there as most of what Side has to offer is within walking distance of this quiet location. Anyway, the Dolmus bus service for which Side is famous, cheap and regular and running everywhere, stops close by. Even better, there comes each day a frequent free shuttle service to the beach, restaurants, bars; plus we offer at least 10 more free pick up and drop of shuttles day and night. These are no obligation services and we give you full details in our comprehensive pre holiday information pack. In addition we are the only providers of the valuable SIDE V I P CARD which provides genuine discounts in many popular restaurants and bars that we can personally recommend, saving you easily 100 pounds a week per family of 4 Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Towels and linen are provided, There is an exit clean included in the price and you can organise an intermediary clean on site. Please note there is a washing machine and clothes do dry quickly. Other: I must point out that this home has been furnished to a much higher than normal standard. For example the bed mattresses are of superior quality for extra comfort. I can send a short video online to you of the MIRAGE community and also of SIDE resort
