About David Lockwood
My wife and I are UK citizens with 2 teenage kids of 19 and 18. We both work for a living, myself for a large UK bank and my wife for a large restaurant chain. We both look forward to our 2 annual trips to our villa each year as it gives us a chance to get away and relax in the most peaceful of settings. We always wanted a holiday home and Gocek certainly ticks all the boxes for us - Idyllic Setting, friendly people, excellent cuisine, private pool and within walking distance to all the local amenities. I'm a keen gardener and much of the garden design and planting is all my own. I've love Palm Trees and have a number of them planted around the grounds. But don't just take our word for it, we invite you you come and sample the delights of one of Turkey's hidden Gems.
David Lockwood purchased this Villa in 2007
Why David Lockwood chose Göcek
The town of Gocek is everything you could wish for when looking for that quiet, peaceful location. We feel in love with the town as soon as we arrived. Friendly people, great restaurants, spectacular views and a wonderful marinas - who could ask for more ? Gocek does not attract the mass tourist market and is perhaps not the best place for a younger crowd who want nightclubs and music bars open until dawn. We found our villa which is just 5 minutes walk from town and made an offer the following day. Since then we have not looked back.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa is located in a quiet area behind the local Sunday market. It has beautiful views to the forested hillside to the front and to the right the beautiful pink and gold mountain range surrounding Gocek. The villa is close to the main harbour areas and all the cafes and restaurants are a short 5 minute stroll.
Pool / Spa
Amazing place !
Our 2nd stay at Gocek Palms villa, 5 years on and it was everything we remembered about our first stay: wonderful villa with everything you need, amazing location, fantastic pool and chill out area and gocek is still as wonderful as ever. A few new additions to the villa made the stay even more like a home from home with Apple TV and WiFi installed and the extended outdoor space for that extra time in the sun a welcome addition.
Would we come back again ? Absolutely!
Lovely Cosy Villa
We like Gocek and have stayed many times, this is by far the best villa we have stayed in, as well as the owner Dave is a pleasure to deal with nothing was too much trouble. The villa has everything you need for like us a couple or a small family. Inside the villa is spotless and tastefully decorated, its location is ideal only being 5 to 10mins walk to the restaurants and shops, Dave also arranged transport from the airport to the villa which all went smoothly. The only negative would be the bbq I enjoy cooking and did all the cooking inside which was not a problem but there is a lovely bbq area at the end of the garden let down by a very small rusty bbq. Bar that it was perfect for our stay and will certainly book again when we visit Gocek again.

Thanks for the excellent review, Simon.
Very much appreciated
Lovely villa in a great location
As a couple we had a great 12 days in the villa surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature yet close to the centre. This was our first return to Gocek for 12 years and we couldn't have picked a better property! The pool was clean and inviting and the villa was very comfortable and relaxing.
The hosts are helpful and accommodating and so are the Gocek locals. Lots of information is provided in the villa to get you started.
We would recommend and definitely return again without hesitation.
Thanks Dave and Ronnie
Very good villa in a really nice tranquil location
The Villa was perfect for our stay, well equipped, very nicely decorated. In an ideal location for the many shops, restaurants, bars and the Sunday market. Lovely and peaceful with a beautiful garden to enjoy, as well when having a barbecue.
Perfect veranda area always in the shade with a casual seating area, although far too low for me to use (arthritic knees!), there was a separate table and chairs. The villa felt very private and tranquil yet an easy stroll to the supermarket, centre and marina.
Villa was spotless, pool area and garden was attended to most days. Great communication with the owner before our holiday who very kindly arranged the airport transfers, which went like a dream. Loved every minute and returned home feeling very well rested and wouldn't hesitate to return.
Great location.close to town but quiet.
Villa garden is very colourful. Close to Sunday market and easy walking distance to town.good size for 4 adults and great for 2 .
Pool all one depth so younger children or short adults take care 😁.kitchen compact but lacked nothing and the contact from owners was always prompt.
A beautiful Villa that was perfect for our requirements and met all our expectations.
This was our first return to Gocek for a number of years as we wanted a quiet week to relax, enjoy the sun, eat good food and enjoy the location. (We remembered Gocek to be quiet and picturesque). We were not disappointed and the Villa made the holiday perfect.
The Photographs do not do the Villa justice, part of its beauty is the location and the ambiance of the garden, pool and the fragrance of the flowers when sat there in the morning and evening. The area of the Villa is quiet with a 10 to 15 minute stroll to the waterfront and Marina. Yes part of the walk was along a 250 yard section of small hard core beaten road surface but this was no problem for us, it was lit and we watched the bats and listened to the crickets singing......The pool is cooling, a good size and the surrounding pool area covers wherever the sun went. Breakfasts under the shade are holiday memories.
Gocek, its waterfront and Marina is picturesque and perfect to stroll around. The restaurants are excellent and spoil you for choice as to where to eat. No sports bars or loud music here.
The Villa owner David was always available by e-mail or phone offering advice and answering questions. The arranged Airport transfer by air conditioned Mercedes was also faultless.
Our whole experience was excellent and we intend to return next year. I have no hesitation in recommending this Villa.
