About Mr Michael Lucas
I live in the UK but try to spend as much time as possible in Turkey with my Turkish partner who visits the UK often. Its likely that you might meet me and my partner when in Icmeler and we are happy to spend time with you and share our local knowledge. When in the UK I live in an 18th century house which I had to totally renovate. We enjoy the country side, old historic properties and gardens, our property / garden & a quiet country life. I enjoy fly fishing at a local trout fishery and bee keeping. I have had a holiday property in Turkey since 2005 which is very popular. I have been renovating a historic lorry and showman's living van since 2011 and we have attended many country shows and steam rallies.
Mr Michael Lucas purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Mr Michael Lucas chose İçmeler
I first visited Turkey Icmeler in May 2004 for just one week; we were with other family members who had been before and our four teenage children. We all had the best holiday we had ever had and made several Turkish friends, we hope you have a similar experience to ours. In that first week we had a Turkish bath, went on a jeep safari and scuba diving, never having done it before. We went to the Wednesday market, all had shaves, hair cuts and massages at the barber’s, explored the old village, shopped at the Bazaar, swam at the beach, climbed the hill (mountain) with the Turkish flag on, shopped till we dropped, ate out each day including a trip to a country restaurant usually used by local people. Since our first visit, we returned three times after deciding to buy property in Icmeler.
What makes this Apartment unique
We enjoy the spacious accommodation which is larger than our 3 bedroom house in the UK & the very comfortable beds which leave us feeling so rested, we also have security blinds on all windows which when lowered prevent the early morning sun waking us too early. Our property also benefits from an extra hot water storage vessel giving lashings of hot water for the massage shower and Jacuzzi bath. We also enjoy being able to use our bikes to cycle around the quiet roads in Icmeler especially the old village. Unlike many properties in Icmeler access to the pool patios & gardens is direct from the patio doors, many other pools and gardens can only be accessed via the main entrance door on the opposite side of the building. Its location is quiet & central a short stroll to anywhere, perfick!

Superb apartment in a super location
Thank you for the apartment. We had a brilliant time. It was hassle free throughout our stay. The apartment is very clean, spacious and in the right spot of location. I wouldn't say it was an apartment more like a house. It had everything you need. Very home from home. Couldn't fault anything really. Plenty of storage, hot water when we need it. The washing machine is a must as we have 3 kids. Abdul is a lovely man who go out of his way to help you. I enjoyed my mornings with him. Restaurants, shops etc are all within walking. Less than 10 mins to the beach. Boat trips are brilliant for a day out. The sea is warm to swim in. Plenty of things to do. Marmaris is a good day out for shopping at the bazaar. We are certainly coming back to this apartment again. Thank you Michael and Jill. 😄😄😄
Thank you so much for your review Donna.
You have picked up on all the main benefits of our property especially the apartment / house aspect, it is actually a 3 bedroom two storey house which is larger than our own 3 bed detached house here in the UK. In Turkey it's known as a duplex apartment but as you say it's more like a house.
As you say the location is just about as good as you can get.
You have also mentioned our prized secret weapon, we have an Abdul to look after our guests. He is so popular with our guests and many rebook and say that Abdul was a very important part of their holiday.
Thanks again for taking the time to leave a review, it means a lot to us to hear that our guests have had such a good holiday, Michael and Jill.
Best Holiday EVER
I stayed here with family and friends. There was 8 of us altogether. The property was very clean and well maintained. Easy walking distance into the old town and the beach and close to lots of shops, restaurants, pubs and bars in Icmelor. The pool was a good size and very well looked after. Abdul looked after myself and my family from organising a turkish bath, shopping, waterpark and helped us to change our money. He also took us on a wonderful day trip and we all had a traditional Turkish breakfast. He took care of all of my family and the property very well and was a huge part of our holiday and I was very sad to leave. I recommend Turkish delight restaurant near by, staff are amazing and very attentive, we got to make bread with our name, the food was delicious and we even got to meet Captain Jack Sparrow and Orlando Bloom. :) haha. This is the best experience I have had in Icmelor and I have been to Turkey 8 times. The property is incredible and a really relaxing experience it was just beautiful. I am just waiting to find out when the children break up from school next year so I can rebook. Thank you Michael and Jill for sharing you wonderful Turkish home with us. We will be back.
Miss Gemma Cartmell and Family
Dear Gem & family. Thank you for such a lovely review. You have obviously put your trust in our friend and representative Abdul and been rewarded by his friendship and help even going out for the day with him which is what we often do ourselves. He can show you so many things that you would be unaware of as a tourist, even just going out for a meal with him is great fun and he orders Turkish food that is not even on the menu helping you to have a genuine Turkish experience. Many of our guests do return and tell us what a great time they have had and that Abdul was a crucial part of their holiday. We haven't tried that restaurant but certainly will although we did meet captain Sinbad one holiday but not Jack Sparrow :-). Please book as soon as you can because next season is already getting booked up.
We look forward to having back any time as we are sure Abdul will be very pleased to see you. Warmest regards to you all, Michael and Jill.
The apartment had everything we needed. The rooms were immaculate and the pool was beautiful. I'm missing the place already. The owners were great as they gave me lots of info about the area before I left. Also, Abdul was very helpful. He made great efforts for us. I would definitely book this place again. The location was perfect as there were various shops around us as well as restaurants. Amazing!
Thank you mashur for your lovely review. We were so impressed by all the things you did on your first trip to Turkey. We were pleased you went to Pamukkale and very impressed that you visited Istanbul. Abdul said he enjoyed taking you to the mosque and very much enjoyed your company. You are welcome to return any time but please reserve your dates as soon as your able to, to avoid disappointment. We hope to hear from you soon, kind regards from Michael and Jill.
Perfect pad in Icmeler
We booked this lovely duplex apartment in Icmeler after looking through the owners info page, once there we were not disappointed with the location/accommodation. The apartment is easily reached from the resort centre and is just a short walk from all that Icmeler can offer.
We found the apartment spacious and modern with a good pool (shared) and plenty of sun loungers to go round, we really enjoyed our holiday here and I would not hesitate in recommending this holiday let especially for families who will find Icmeler perfect in every way.
Thank you Shaun for your lovely review of our property. We hope you are able to rebook for next season, we have added Wi-Fi and a Tandem cycle since you stayed at our property.
Michael and Jill.
Lovely Relaxing Stay
Having holidayed in Icmeler several times in the past, and in this complex, I knew what to expect, however the apartment was very comfortable, clean and spacious, and I fully recommend a stay .
10 min stroll to the beach and all local amenities. The beach is sandy to light grit in some parts, there are no tides or currents and the beach gently slopes into the water for safe bathing. Shops, restaurants etc are just a few moments away on foot.
Nearest Airport: Dalaman, 104 Kms. Transfer time 75 to 90 minutes. Car hire is not required, we can arrange transfers for you or advise of other options.
Icmeler is the best; we believe it to be the most desirable location in the Marmaris area. It is a small town with an up market feel to it & a friendly village atmosphere, we cannot emphasise enough just how nice and friendly the local people are. Back from the beach behind the long promenade there is the newer part of Icmeler with shops, restaurants, bars, hotels, small supermarket & a pretty canal area, further back from the beach is the old village.
The charming more sophisticated resort town of Icmeler is located in a sheltered bay, surrounded on 3 sides by pine covered mountains between Marmaris and Turunc on the Turquoise coast. The crystal clear blue waters are perfect for water sports, or just to relax on it’s sandy beaches. Local transport systems make it easy travel. Local buses (dolmus) taxis and boats are easily available to get about, the dolmus are very reasonably priced, fun and interesting to use. Turunc 10km by road but just around the bay by boat is a peaceful and relaxed resort. Delicious fish restaurants are a must when you visit. Marmaris, Icmelers other neighbour 8km away is a more cosmopolitan palm fringed town with it’s wonderful harbour, shops, bars restaurants, pubs and clubs. Shoppers will enjoy the old town bazaar, buying wonderful Turkish souvenirs, gold and silver bargains, remember to haggle. Once you have sampled the delights of the surrounding area head back to your comfy home from home in Icmeler.
