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.

This was a superb apartment situated in peaceful mountain settings but only 10 minutes from the local town
Orca hotel runs a shuttle bus system to and from the town with a taxi button opposite the complex which works really well and cheap
Oludiniz nearby town where you can do market stalls and watch the paragliders come in eat in very good restaurants and watch the sea at the same time

From landing and getting picked up
by taxi organised by Liz me and my family have had a wonderful holiday. Apartment very clean and spacious, pool and views stunning looking forward to returning.
Thank you for reviewing your stay and the lovely comments, it is always good to hear our guests had a good time. Look forward to seeing you next year.
Perfect on every level
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.

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.

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.
