Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a really fabulous holiday and really loved the apartment.It was clean, well equipped and beautifully designed and far exceeded the high expectations we already had.It is one of the best apartments we have ever stayed in and for Turkey way above the rest.
As soon as we entered we were totally bowled over and couldn’t believe that the apartment is just so fantastic.The standard of all the furnishings, fixtures and fittings were of excellent quality.It is the best designed complex in Side and definitely has the “wow” factor. I can’t recommend these apartments highly enough.
A dream come true! I can't express in words how much we absolutely loved our holiday it was just perfect in every way. I was in tears with delight when we arrived as it was just everything I wished for and so so so much more. This has been by far the best holiday we have ever had.
A superb place to stay... Once you have had the pleasure of staying at Q Gardens I guarantee you will soon return.
5 based on 9 holidaymaker reviews
We have just returned from a 10 day stay and the accommodation was faultless. It's really was one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. The staff on site could not have done more for you they were excellent. Arab the dog became our best friend and he loves chicken just in case you have any going spare. The location suited us perfectly with local bars and restaurants nearby but only a 40 minute walk to Side old town and about the same to Manavgrat which is a bustling traditional Turkish town well worth a visit to the market on a Monday and also the boat trip to the waterfall which was stunning. You can get taxi or shuttle but we preferred the walk. There are great beaches and the Seaside beach lounge was fabulous but try the beaches further along beside the large hotels there was a free beach near the end with lovely bar where we had lunch and they will happily serve you drinks on the beach so you don't even have to move from your sunbed. All in all we had a brilliant holiday and Lee the owner was incredible and provided us with as much information as we could ever have needed. I would recommend this property to anyone you will not be disappointed.
"Q" stands for quality
Arranged pickup from the airport was a god send after the flight, got to the apartment and was pleasantly surprised with the way the apartment was set out.
1 double bedroom with ensuite and a another bedroom with twin beds a family sized bathroom . The kitchen was equipped with all the equipment needed for our stay, there was also a washing machine which was handy to wash towels after visiting the beach the pool was bigger then we expected and had for sun loungers as well as a table and 4 chairs. The roof terrace was ideal for the evenings as it was too hot during the day.
The restaurants locally were about 10 minutes walk away but if you have trouble walking it might be a issue as there is a steep Hill to climb on the way back we used most of the restaurants along the strip but found the Corner restaurant to be the best.
The Beach area was a 15 minute drive away but if you went to the security Guy he will arrange for you to be taken and picked up the Beach area had plenty of sunbeds which are free and also parasols.
We spoke to the security guy if it was possible to have water delivered and he arranged for the local delivery van to drop off the water 19 litres for 6 lira.
The apartment itself was very cool as the air conditioning works well and we found that the beds were comfortable as well if you arrange with Lee the owner he will have someone coming Midway through your stay to clean and change the beds but as we had the washing machine we didn't need this arrangement we also arranged to be picked up and taking back to the airport at the end of our stay in all I would recommend these apartments as we have always gone to a hotel in the past but this was a more relaxing holiday as we could please ourselves when we had food
Fantastic holiday in Side
When we arrived at the apartment, following a very straightforward transfer from the airport, we found that everything lived up to our expectations. The apartment is of a very high quality. The bonus of a private garden and pool meant we had a great place to relax between our time at the beach and our evenings out.
From the booking process up to the final communications on our return to the UK, Lee, the owner, has been excellent. Quick responses to all requests for information meant we felt we had a head start on knowing what was available and what we wanted to do in Side - everything went as smoothly as possible and was all exactly as described.
The on site security staff, supported by Ahrab the dog, were always very friendly and helpful. Every morning they arranged for the minibus to pick us up to go to the beach and arranged taxi's for us for the evenings when we wanted to go to the harbour area. The taxi service is excellent - as long as you don't mind the white knuckle Turkish driving.
We spent most days at the beach - the beach club was also excellent with nice sunbeds (we were able to reserve our favourite ones after the first couple of days) and a waiter service bringing drinks and food - we recommend the "frozens" which taste great and are very refreshing on a boiling hot day.
We enjoyed the watersports at the beach - between our family and the friends that we went with we tried the Sofa, the Banana Boat and the Paraseiling all of which were great fun and good value for money. We also went on the Jeep Safari which was another hugely enjoyable day out.
For evening meals we split our time between local restaurants and the ones around the Harbour. Our favourites were Ocakbasi, Orfoz, Aphrodite and Lush all of which provided great food, good service and great hospitality. We didn't take part in the Karaoke evenings at Lush but the owner's rendition of "Tie a Yellow Ribbon" will live long in the memory!
Our advice would be to stick to the highly recommended restaurants and watch out for the ones that try to drag you in with promises of cheap drinks or give you free water bottles - the best restaurants don't need to resort to such tactics.
Overall, as a family, we all agreed that this was our best holiday ever and that we would all love to return next year.
Fabulous Side holiday whilst staying in Q Gardens
Upon arrival at Q Gardens my 13 year old son's words were "this is amazing, I want to live here". The apartment exceeded our expectations, it was immaculate and the décor and facilities were first class. The security office were friendly and helpful and we all felt safe and secure. Our pool was regularly cleaned and the garden well maintained. We have booked many good holidays on Owners Direct, but Lee, the owner was the most helpful and professional owner we have dealt with. He ensured that the booking process was easy and answered all our queries promptly (this was our first trip to Turkey) before, during and after our stay. The security office were so helpful booking the free bus to the beach (great to use as it was so hot to walk) and booking taxis and we all fell in love with Arab, the lovely Labrador dog. The beach was great, with good facilities, comfortable sun beds and waiter service for drinks etc. We also enjoyed participating in the water sports on offer at the beach, all very safe and good value. We walked to a few local restaurants and enjoyed very nice meals. Lush was our favourite (great food and excellent value for money) and it was a short walk to a number of supermarkets, so there were plenty of amenities nearby. You could walk into the old town of Side, but as it was so hot we only did this once and then got a taxi for further visits - only a 5 min journey. Side is lovely with it's Roman ruins and harbour. We particularly enjoyed meals at Ocakbasi, Aphrodite and Orfoz (you can see a beautiful sunset here). Shopping in Side is fantastic too. Many restaurants offered a pick up service from the apartment upon making a reservation. We would also recommend a jeep safari trip as a good way to see the local area, a really fun day out. We would definitely recommend this apartment and we hope to visit again.
Superb apartments & holiday
As other reviews have said, the Q Gardens apartments are excellent. Lee is prompt and helpful in his contact when making the booking & leading up to your stay. The apartment is well equipped and furnished, having your own garden and pool is fantastic.
A few restaurants, bars & shops 5-10mins walk up & over the hill but need to get taxis to the old town and other areas. About 20 TL a taxi to the old town. Just ask the guys in the security building and they will phone for a taxi for you plus they will also phone for the free shuttle bus to the beach.
The beach is great - free sun beds and shade at the beach club the bus takes you to with a café bar there for food and drink. Perfect beach for children.
Side as a resort is fantastic and the old town is where it all happens at night. A maze of shops to haggle in and restaurants and bars line the harbour and sea front. Plus the ruins all around give it real character.
Q Gardens and Side highly recommended.
Best Holiday ever
Had the best holiday ever - the apartment was everything and more that it said it was - (the washing machine was really appreciated)loved the pool, the garden and especially the roof terrace - absolutely perfect. Spent many nights on the roof - cold drinks from the fridge, listening to the Mosques calling to prayer the sound of the cicadas. Wonderful location - walked to the shops to get fresh bread every day - the fresh fruit and vegetable stall in the small market was lovely - ate out at Lush (and went for drinks and karaoke - had an absolute blast) Ocakbasi - the most wonderful food - loved Side old town - the museum, the ruins, the amphitheatre, the transfers to the beach made life very easy and the beach restaurant was great. Recommend the midweek clean if you are staying for 2 weeks. Went on a couple of excursions, Mountain jeep trek and the boat trip to the river - really good value for money and so much fun. Thank you so much - will definitely be returning.
