About the Owner

My partner and I live in the beautiful Dorset countryside. Before getting together we both visited Turkey frequently and now more so. We find it the perfect place to escape our busy jobs and the pace of life in the UK.

This is our first season so we have no comments from guests. We can't wait to see if people like our place as much as we do, we also welcome any suggestions as not everyone holidays the same way.

Thank you.

Great spot, great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great find, the apartment was comfortable and very well equipped, everything you could possibly need was there. Fully air-conditioned and well furnished with very comfortable beds the apartment has its' own garden with a bar-b-cue dining table with four chairs, loungers and bean bags. It is just above the swimming pool but the height difference, only about 12 feet markedly reduces any noise from the poolside. There are loungers at the pool and the whole complex is very well maintained. Contact with the owners was easy and Simon was both organised and helpful throughout the booking process. The agent in Yalikavak, Loes, was delightful and so helpful, she didn't even scowl when we managed to lock ourselves out, (I still maintain that I told my wife that I DIDN'T have the keys - but that's another tale). I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place. I know the area very well but found a new spot which offered everything you needed for a day at the beach including really good Turkish food at amazingly good prices so if you rent this apartment go to the "Kucuk Ev", (little house).

Excellent apartment,great pool, fantastic views.

  • 5 of 5

I think we were the first to stay at this apartment and we were not disappointed. The description given was accurate in all respects. The apartment was as described, clean, well equipped, lovely gardens and fantastic views out to sea and over to Greece. If you like to truly self cater then this apartment has it all, loads of cutlery, pans, bowls and a big dish washer to make life easy!

The pool is great and really warm. The garden looks down over it so great views and easy access are assured.

The site is very well maintained and there are colourful flowers pretty much everywhere.

The management Co who look after the apartment are very friendly and helpful should you need them. We didn't apart from asking if we could still take the empty glass bottles back for the deposit? (yes you can).

The area is hilly and I wouldn't recommend it to the less able bodied but there is a regular and reliable dolmus service from right outside the complex, so it really isn't a problem. This is more than made up for by the fantastic views and watching the sunset from the poolside is really amazing!

We have travelled many times to Turkey and found Yalikavak to be one of the best places we have visited.

There is a new marina which has some of the most awesome boats moored and it is very strange to be in a small Turkish town and see Bentley's, Porsche's, Ferrari's and the like buzzing round.

There are lots of good bars and restaurants in town and it only takes 10 mins by Dolmus to get there.

Prices are still good and as always the locals are good for a laugh.

Overall I would highly recommend this accommodation and the general area for a proper Turkish holiday.

Location

From the Owner

Choosing the right holiday apartment / villa can be hit and miss. In realising a long term ambition and purchasing our own we have created exactly what we expect to find on arrival. We hope you feel the same way and would welcome any suggestions to improve it in any way. Aside from the spectacular views, the property has the best of both worlds. A well maintained peaceful site and only a short trip into a vibrant town.
