About Elaine Rose

I am a Child and Family Psychotherapist, my husband is a business analyst, we live in Kent

Elaine Rose purchased this house in 1996

Why Elaine Rose chose Marmaris

We bought the house because we love Turkey with its wonderfully kind people, reliable weather, wonderful food and scenery. The house is rural and there is no passing traffic, the pool is hard to leave.

What makes this house unique

If you enjoy forests and nature and being off the tourist trail this is for you. Our home has a wonderful pool and the interior is a mixture of traditional and modern, air conditioning in bedrooms

The pool is not fenced, the garden, in common with all Turkish gardens, has cacti and succulents. The stairs (see pic) are open plan so children will need to be supervised by their parents. The sea is about 10 minutes drive away. the forest is very beautiful and ideal for running or walking or cycling. THE POOL IS VERY BEAUTIFUL INDEED. The house is in its own very well attended garden. Lovely home.

Tranquil, peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

A very lovely picturesque house, it kept cool in the summer, had a decent pool and the entire stay was very relaxing. The property is near to some very nice local restaurants, beaches and places of interest. Recommend to anyone wishing for some peace and quiet.

Fantastic - lovely property in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay - the house is spacious, clean and comfortable and the pool and garden are lovely. The property is easily accessible but far enough off the main road to feel like it's in a world of its own. The surrounding area is fantastic - loads of lovely scenery, great walking, historic sites, beaches, bars and restaurants - but it's extremely tempting just to laze by the pool! Highyl recommended!

Idyllic peaceful setting with a private pool!

  • 5 of 5

The house has lots of rustic character and is well-equipped with pretty much everything you'd need for peaceful getaway.

The bathroom was modern and new, the kitchen was well-supplied and the house itself sits in a forest with only a handful of houses around it. The surrounding properties are owned by friendly local people which meant we found it to be an authentic retreat from the tourist-mobbed resorts in Marmaris.

Although there's no A/C, because it's so quiet, you can happily leave all the windows open and get a nice through draught at night to stay cool.

There's lots of well-stocked bookshelves which were handy once we'd read all of ours.

The garden is lovely and very well-maintained. The pool is fantastic and it's lovely not having to share it with anyone else!

You would really need a hire car because of the remote setting. Having said that, Marmaris is only a 15 minute drive and there are loads of good beaches and restaurants within easy driving distance, all along the Bozburun penninsula (where the scenery is breathtaking).

Overall, we'd definitely highly recommend this house to anyone that wants a peaceful getaway, guaranteed summer sun, and a private pool for a very reasonable price.

Explore Turkey

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place to stay, home from home really apart from the fabulous pool which wouldn't be much good in the UK weather! The delightful house was so comfortable and well equipped, fantastic bathroom. Charming neighbours all around who were very helpful and friendly even giving us produce from their gardens. The owners provide comprehensive guidance on transport from the UK all their recommendations worked very well. Would thoroughly recommend and I am fussy!

uriges Steinhaus für Naturliebhaber

  • 5 of 5

Geschmackvoll und gut ausgestattetes Ferienhaushaus abseits vom Touristenrummel.

Großer Garten mit schattenspendenden Bäumen.

Toller Pool mit guter Filteranlage.

Liegt mitten im Wald. Im Garten leben Frösche, Schildkröten, Vögel außerdem kommen Nachbars Hühner oder Katzen zu Besuch und Kinder haben Ihren Spass.

Die Strände erreicht man nach längeren Fahrten durch schöne Landschaft (waren uns aber zumindest in der Hauptsaison zu voll, so dass wir oft auf dem schönen Grundstück blieben, wo man sich bestens erholen konnte)

Einkaufsmöglichkeiten im Dorf begrenzt, also ab und zu Fahrt nach Marmaris erforderlich. Voll ausgestattete Küche, in der man gut kochen konnte. Außerdem Steingrill im Garten.

Also das richtige Urlaubsdomizil für ruhesuchende Naturliebhaber.

The Stone House is in a rural position- set within a hamlet of houses in a forest. There is no passing traffic.
