Idyllic gem of a house
We enjoyed our stay hugely and feel very lucky to have found this little gem.
This house is furnished quite simply but had everything we needed. It is a little worn around the edges, but comfortable. It has great communal spaces – a lovely shaded porch with sofas that is just perfect. It is in paradise. It is along the beach past a lovely friendly little village. It has good cafes and restaurants just a short walk away, but is tucked in at the end of the bay so there is no through traffic except the occasional Lycian Way walker. It is incredibly quiet and peaceful. We ended up spending most of our time around the bay as it was so beautiful and tranquil there.
We arrived wishing we didn’t have to have a cleaner and left feeling extremely glad we did. She is a lovely smiley woman who is very unobtrusive while making sure the house stays clean and tidy. She did our washing, washed up, picked up bread for breakfast and even cooked for us one morning.
Penny was a wonderful host. They were doing some work on the boat so were around during our stay. Again, it was great to have them nearby. Penny gave us tips on the best swimming spots (by a temple with pottery on the sea floor), restaurants (Mermaid in the next bay can send a boat over) and local walks.
There are heaps of bugs, beetles and butterflies everywhere (bring mozzy repellent).
The ‘Badem Çiçeği’ café looks quirky but does really good village food and is very reasonable. It also does great real filter coffee. ‘Octopus’ does the standard mezze and fish fare very well but is pricier.
The nearest bank/cash machine is in Bozburun so bring plenty of cash.
This property is truly amazing for the money. If you are looking for a millennial finish to the Villa with a flat screen TV in every room and Ikea flooring everywhere then this isn’t for you and you will be better off in Icmeler. However, if you are looking for a peaceful getaway within a beautiful location and a spacious Villa with 5 out of six rooms having a direct sea view then look no further.
It’s true this Villa has age, but for me it adds to the rustic charm that fits with the aesthetic of the location. The Villa is clean, spacious & well furnished. It has every amenity you might need and a few you might not. The pool is salt water that feeds directly from the sea which is less than 10 metres from your front gate. The beach is a natural course sand and the water is crystal clear.
The location is quiet, but not cut off. Everything you need is in walking distance and the locals are friendly and helpful. If you are feeling a adventurous, there are infinite places to see within an hour if you have a car (which I would highly recommend) as well as some hidden surprises a short row away in any of the boats or canoes provided.
In short, if you are the sort of person/family that wakes up in paradise and prefers to get out and enjoy it, this place is amazing!
Thank you Penny for letting us stay and thank you Gulcan for constantly tidying up after us:) our stay was truly incredible.

A piece of paradise !
Absolut excellent location for a quiet and relaxing holiday in Turkey.
We fellt at home the minute we arrived here. The people in the village are very friendly and helpfull. The pool is a saltwater pool and we enjoyed it very often. The house is at the end of a beach with palms on it. The views are magnificant from the house.
The house was clean and well maintained. If you like a lot of tourists around you ,don't go there !
We defenately return here !
