About David Lockwood

My wife and I are UK citizens with 2 teenage kids of 19 and 18. We both work for a living, myself for a large UK bank and my wife for a large restaurant chain. We both look forward to our 2 annual trips to our villa each year as it gives us a chance to get away and relax in the most peaceful of settings. We always wanted a holiday home and Gocek certainly ticks all the boxes for us - Idyllic Setting, friendly people, excellent cuisine, private pool and within walking distance to all the local amenities. I'm a keen gardener and much of the garden design and planting is all my own. I've love Palm Trees and have a number of them planted around the grounds. But don't just take our word for it, we invite you you come and sample the delights of one of Turkey's hidden Gems.

David Lockwood purchased this villa in 2007

Why David Lockwood chose Lycian & Turquoise Coast

The town of Gocek is everything you could wish for when looking for that quiet, peaceful location. We feel in love with the town as soon as we arrived. Friendly people, great restaurants, spectacular views and a wonderful marinas - who could ask for more ? Gocek does not attract the mass tourist market and is perhaps not the best place for a younger crowd who want nightclubs and music bars open until dawn. We found our villa which is just 5 minutes walk from town and made an offer the following day. Since then we have not looked back.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is located in a quiet area behind the local Sunday market. It has beautiful views to the forested hillside to the front and to the right the beautiful pink and gold mountain range surrounding Gocek. The villa is close to the main harbour areas and all the cafes and restaurants are a short 5 minute stroll.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Waters Family - Aug 11 - Having returned from Gocek Palms Villa in August this year the first thing we talked about is booking to go back next year! We were after a peaceful, relaxing holiday and the villa and Gocek definitely hit the spot. The pool is stunning. The area is really peaceful and the villa is in really private spot but only 5 minutes walk to Gocek town. The town and harbour are beautiful, lots of shops to wander round and a great choice for eating out in the evening, Turkish food is excellent and very reasonable. I would highly recommend the villa and the area, we will definitely be returning next year as we fell in love with the place!



Quinney Family - Aug 11 - We stayed in this lovely villa in August & couldnt have asked for more. Lovely pool with plenty of sunbeds, the shaded terrace was great for dining and the lovely leather seating was great for reading your book or a evening drink. Gocek is a lovely resort and Gocek Palms Villa is a gorgeous place to stay.

A beautiful Villa that was perfect for our requirements and met all our expectations.

Verified Stay

This was our first return to Gocek for a number of years as we wanted a quiet week to relax, enjoy the sun, eat good food and enjoy the location. (We remembered Gocek to be quiet and picturesque). We were not disappointed and the Villa made the holiday perfect.

The Photographs do not do the Villa justice, part of its beauty is the location and the ambiance of the garden, pool and the fragrance of the flowers when sat there in the morning and evening. The area of the Villa is quiet with a 10 to 15 minute stroll to the waterfront and Marina. Yes part of the walk was along a 250 yard section of small hard core beaten road surface but this was no problem for us, it was lit and we watched the bats and listened to the crickets singing......The pool is cooling, a good size and the surrounding pool area covers wherever the sun went. Breakfasts under the shade are holiday memories.

Gocek, its waterfront and Marina is picturesque and perfect to stroll around. The restaurants are excellent and spoil you for choice as to where to eat. No sports bars or loud music here.

The Villa owner David was always available by e-mail or phone offering advice and answering questions. The arranged Airport transfer by air conditioned Mercedes was also faultless.

Our whole experience was excellent and we intend to return next year. I have no hesitation in recommending this Villa.

Fantastic location, great pool area

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderfully relaxing holiday in the Lockwood's lovely villa in Göcek.

We have been staying at villas in the area for 12 yrs and thoroughly enjoyed this one. I expected an estate of villas but it is one in a street and feels v private with great pool area and veranda and well tended garden. The views of the mountains are spectacular and restful, just what we were after but the best part is that it is just a few minutes straight walk into the centre of town with all the shops, restaurants, bars.

Göcek has boats to serve every need and shld u want a beach, the bus is v cheap & takes u to Inlice beach (clean, well looked after & great cafe) in 5 mins.

Our fave restaurant this year has been Guverte next to the Skopia marina but Blue has been a long term fave too & there are many more to try.

The Lockwoods have been so helpful and accommodating and we intend to return next year.

Thanks David & Ronnie

Great villa and location, everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

We (2 adults, 3 kids) had a great 13 night stay at the Lockwood's villa. The villa itself was really nice and very clean throughout. The location was fantastic, about 10 minutes walk from the centre of Gocek, but quite secluded with views from the front towards a forest and to the mountains to the left. Pool was a decent size, but the same depth everywhere (about 5 feet) so wouldn't be ideal for non-swimming kids. Air conditioning throughout, which was essential at night in August. Kitchen was well appointed with all the utensils etc that you'd need. Lounge was pleasant although we mainly sat in the lounging area outside. No aerial or satellite connections to TV, but plenty of videos. Also no wifi, but most of the bars in Gocek have that. We'd definitely go back to this villa if we ever returned to Gocek.

Peaceful and relaxing Gocek Palms

  • 5 of 5

Gocek Palms is an attractive, well-maintained Villa in a peaceful area of the small town of Gocek. This well-equipped Villa is just a short 20 minute transfer from Dalaman airport and has everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. The Villa has lovely garden area, ideal for our two young boys, and a shady chill-out area which was perfect for a relaxing day by the pool. This was our second holiday in Gocek, we like the fact that it's not too busy and has an excellent selection of restaurants, bars and a beautiful Marina all just 5 minutes walk away. We found Dave and Ronnie, the owners, really helpful and there is lots of useful information in the Villa about places to visit etc. should you need it. All in all a wonderful stay and we'll certainly be back in future.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to the resort of Gocek and as such, careful consideration was given to the choice of accommodation. We were not disappointed - the villa was fabulous! It was very clean and is well equipped with everything needed for a perfect holiday. We spent most days relaxing round the pool on the comfortable sun loungers. The Sunday market is well worth a visit where there is some haggling to be done. Shops and restaurants are only a ten minute stroll away. Note, access to/from the villa is via an unmade road which can be hard underfoot especially if you choose to bear left out of the villa. However this is not a problem with appropriate footwear, the market have some nice cushioned sandals which came in handy. Overall we have had a very enjoyable, relaxing holiday. Many thanks to Dave and Ronnie who have been extremely helpful and accommodating from the start.

Lovely villa in a peaceful setting close to Gocek

  • 4 of 5

A lovely 3 bed villa 10 minutes stroll to Gocek town and marina. Description was accurate and the villa and pool were clean and well maintained. Dave, the owner was particularly helpful and efficient.

We would highly recommend this villa and Gocek, lovely town and lots of activity by the harbour.

We enjoyed the Sunday market, the restaurants, particularly Limon, Kebab Hospital and Dice café.

Whilst lots of boats had great day out with Sadi on his gullet Nirvana s. ( www,gocekmavitur.com).

One great advantage of villa is Gocek is only 25 mins from Dalaman airport.
