The best breakfast view in town ....
Loved the balcony and garden, it was a great place to start the day. Everything you could possibly need was supplied in the cottage, and the host provided such a thorough file of useful local information and a refrigerator full of food which was appreciated and unexpected. The cottage is located on the hillside, amongst other old stone buildings which makes it an interesting walk through the cobbled streets to take in the character of Ayvalik. Conveniently located to walk around Ayvalik sights, restaurants and to the Cunda ferry. Car parking was a challenge, we always got a spot close-by but some people would find the narrow roads and access difficult to manage. Also the number of steps down into the property, up to balcony and within the property between bedrooms and bathroom would be difficult for those with mobility issues. We had a great stay and appreciated Britta’s prompt and helpful communications during our stay and arranging convenient arrival and departure meetings.
We are absolutely delighted with our stay. All of it including: response time, greeting in Ayvalik, the welcome spread (thank you for sticking the fridge for our arrival) and importantly, the house, its view and location. The house is very well designed. equipped and decorated. We had everything we needed. It was also a pleasure to be part of that neighborhood - even if only for a few days. Thanks to the house owner and lovely agent.
Thank you so much for your kind words and nice comment.
It is a pleasure to hear when my guests like the way how I arrange house and garden.
My kind of hospitality should be a contribute to some recreative and relaxing days in a nice invironment.
I am looking forward to welcoming you and your friends anytime again.
An Oasis in Ayvalik
Our two week stay was fabulous thanks to the location of this very well maintained and care for house. The garden provides great shelter from the heat and the patio area is a perfect spot for breakfast, lunch and especially dinner admiring the sunset over the island of Cunda. The house is tastefully furnished, quality linens, functional kitchen, and nice bathroom. The neighborhood is very quiet and it is walking distance from the center of town. Driving up to the house is not recommended, but there is parking down the street near the tea garden.
You are any time wellcome and thank you so much for watering my flowers.
Another save parking is a little bit up the hill.
Amazing house with fantastic view
I was very fortunate to select this house for my stay in Ayvalik.
The house is truly amazing with all the amenities you can ask for and the best feature is its fantastic view of the bay and proximity to downtown. We were four people in our group and we all agreed that we made a wonderful choice renting Britta's gem, we would definitely highly recommend this gem of the property to anyone who wants to visit Ayvalik.
Fabulous old house
This was our second stay in the house. It's beautiful - lovingly restored and artistically appointed, with a lovely walled garden complete with flowers and shrubs, fruit trees, a palm tree and small lawn, plus marvellous views across the bay from the terrace. The owner goes to a lot of trouble to make sure you feel welcome; there's everything you need if you want to cook or if you just want to laze and wander and its scrupulously clean too. Ayvalik is only a short walk through atmospheric, narrow cobbled streets where the friendly locals smile at you and exchange the traditional greetings and where you'll see old Turkey, the way it used to be, complete with horses and carts. Boat trips from the harbour are great if you want a full day out swimming and seeing the islands, or you can potter over to Cunda on a shorter boat trip or drive to the more distant beaches on the island or at nearby Badavut. Ayvalik's street market on Thursday is a wonder not to miss too, as is a drive across the mountain road through pine forests to Bergamon and the ancient site of Pergamon and Asclepion. Plenty of good restaurants in Ayvalik too and the bars by the harbour are wonderfully relaxing places just to sit and stare and enjoy the scene. Thoroughly recommended.
Ayvalik Special Boutique Home
We stayed for a little over a week at this wonderful old Home. It was a quiet and allowed us to feel part of the community. The view is outstanding and spending time on the terrace was absolutely wonderful. The kitchen has all the amenities one requires, the quality of the home furnishings are exceptional - four Stars. The garden and terrace allow for privacy and give a real mediterranean feeling. We could not have asked for more. Wonderful home and the owner Britta is terrific to deal with. We highly recommend this lovely home and wonderful locale.
In a few minutes you can reach the Historie city center. At the harbour there are sunny caffees, inviting restaurants and many shops.
To the sandy beach in Sarimsakli, which is seven kilometer long ore to the small bays on the the peninsula Alibey, which is famous because oft the fish restaurants, you can get in a short time with busses or the local taxies. The small islands of Ayvalik are inviting for boattrips, for divers there are underwater paradises.
With the ferryboat you can reach daily the greek island Lesbos. The airport in Edremit is reachable within 30 minutes, to Izmir it takes less than two hours. Trips to Assos and Bergama are recommendable.
