About Liz Black

Hi, I am married with a grown up son and daughter and a grandson. My husband and I live and work near Norwich in Norfolk. We love spending time in Turkey and try to holiday there twice a year.

Liz Black purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Liz Black chose Ölüdeniz

We purchased our apartment after falling in love with the area on a visit to Olu Deniz in April 2012. Set in the hillside with mountain views on all sides it was the beautiful scenery that first attracted us together with the friendliness of the local people. Although in a peaceful setting, there are shops, bars and restaurants nearby with lovely beaches and the picturesque Blue Lagoon at Olu Deniz around 4km away.

What makes this apartment unique

Being one of only 29 apartments at Orka Gardens around an impressively large swimming pool, it is never crowded.

We also have gardens at the front, side and rear of the property for the sole use of those in our apartment and some of our past guests have commented that they think "we have the best position " on the complex. Being an 'Orka' property, you also have free use of the nearby Orka Club Hotel facilities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Some comments from our guest book (you can also read our reviews on trip advisor).

"We have just returned from a fabulous relaxing 2 weeks holiday at A1 Orka Gardens. The apartment is just 1 of 29 and I personally think it has the best position on the complex."

"We had a fantastic 2 weeks in Ovacik. The apartment is beautiful and it's location couldn't have been better. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery every single day."

"One of the best holidays we've had and we will definitely return"

"Excellent apartment, well equiped, clean and comfortable. Would recommend to friends and would be happy to return again."

Perfect on every level

  • 5 of 5

From beginning to end it was perfect. Liz was super helpful and couldn't have been better in terms of advice and guidance in terms of booking, use of apartment and what was available to do when there and sorting transfers. The apartment was amazing and had everything you needed. We loved the little cupboard where non perishables where stored from previous lettings and a start up pack - this is really helpful and means you don't have to go out to buy things like salt and pepper!!

The apartment was spacious and we just loved it. Would thoroughly recommend. We can't wait to return next year.

A fabulous apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was really lovely. It had everything you could need to make your stay wonderful. Very clean and everything there that you needed. Huge pool and plenty of sunloungers, but apartment had its own private patio and loungers which would be handy in August! Walking distance of Hisaronu (25 mins ) which was touristy but 10 mins to Ovacik which had plenty of quieter bars and restaurants. Liz the owner couldn't have been more helpful, and when we did have to contact her, she was back to us very quickly, and problem sorted . I would definitely stay there again, and wold recommend it to anyone. Thanks alot Liz

Fantastic week at Orka Gardens

  • 5 of 5

Just returned after an amazing week at Orka Gardens. Liz was extremely helpful giving lots of useful information before our holiday. The apartment is fantastic with the best views you could ask for. Lovely and peaceful surroundings helped us unwind in what is a beautiful, modern apartment. The use of Orka Hotel facilities and free shuttle service is an added bonus. We will definitely return.

Fantastic family holiday in this beautiful property in a lovely location. Liz made the trip so easy booking the transfers and answering any questions we had. The villa is in a great location, there is even a taxi button outside the gate - once pushed only waited for a few minutes for a taxi to arrive. The Villa itself is decorated to a high standard and there is everything you need - even air con that actually worked. The pool was very large with plenty of sun beds - so no need to get up early and put your towels down!! some days there were only a handful of people around the pool. We will definitely book again.

Car: not necessary


Around 4km to the beach at OluDeniz (about 10 minutes by dolmus) where you will find the pituresque Blue Lagoon and Billy's beach on the far side of the lagoon, plus the main beach and seafront promenade.

Fethiye has a nice seafront and marina overlooking the bay and Calis beach, about 15 to 20 minutes drive away.


The nearest airport is Dalaman, about 50 km (around 1 hour’s drive) away. Fly to Dalaman from most UK airports (including Norwich if you happen to live in the same area as us!) We can arrange airport transfers if needed. Car hire is not essential, but again we can help with this if required.


Ovacik centre/main road about 10 minutes walk

Small AquaPark at Ucel Hotel about 15 minutes walk

Hisaronu 15-20 minutes walk

Oludeniz & Blue Lagoon, 10 minute drive

Fethiye town/marina 15-20 minutes drive

Kayakoy "ghost town" 15 minutes drive

Saklikent Gorge about 45 km

Dalyan (Iztuza beach, loggerthead sea turtles, mud baths) about 65 km

Further Details:

There are shops for everyday essentials, and bars/restaurants in Ovacik with many more in Hisaronu (more commercialised than Ovacik). Large Migros and Kipa supermarkets in Fethiye. You can exchange money at the Orka Hotel and there are many ATMs and money exchanges in Hisaronu. Local buses (dolmus) run every few minutes from the main road and are a very inexpensive and convenient way to get araound. There is also a taxi call button across the road from the apartment.

As our guests, you also have free use of the facilities at the Orka Club Hotel (including 3 pools, waterslide, fitness centre, pool and table tennis and children's club). There are bars, a restaurant and evening entertainment. They also provide free transport between Orka properties so you can relax and enjoy. Please see our web site for more details.

Beach, watersports, aquaparks, walking, cycling, horse riding & fishing are all of available. Or you might like to try the popular sport of paragliding from the Babadag mountain (highly recommended)

A visit to the famous Blue Lagoon at Olu Deniz with its beautiful surroundings, sandy beach and calm clear water is a must. After a day on the beach, sit and enjoy a drink on the seafront and watch the paragliders come in to land. Daily boat trips leave from the beach at Olu Deniz including a romantic sunset cruise.

In Fethiye there is a very large weekly market every Tuesday selling cheap, great quality fresh local produce, clothes, leather goods and fresh Turkish delight and a fish market. There are numerous bars and restaurants and a very pretty harbour area that has recently been landscaped with garden and paved areas, play areas for children, fountains and topiary, with lovely views out over the bay. Many boat trips leave from Fethiye or you can take the ferry over to the island of Rhodes. You can also travel further afield by dolmus from here.

Many day trips are available eg Jeep safari, Saklikent Gorge, Dalyan.
