Paul or Joanne
About Paul or Joanne
I live in England with my wife & 3 children, we have spent most of our holidays in Turkey in the last 11 years, where we have made many friends and have really fallen in love with the complex & country so much so we also had a villa built with our other family members. We see the apartment as a home from home and have taken pride in maintaining it to a high standard and homely feel - (as is the rest of the complex )
Paul or Joanne purchased this Apartment in 2003
Why Paul or Joanne chose Fethiye
Year purchased: 2003 We bought the apartment 'off plan' - the 2 keys things that sealed it for us was the size of the kidney shaped pool - oversized for the complex size :) and the great views from the attic balcony which we have had extended in 2015 - great for drinks at sunset. :)) The private complex is small 22 apartments, nearly all owned by UK residents - its a very relaxed, friendly complex which is child friendly and has an onsite manager Apart from the fantastic facilities in the area, mountainous scenery and stunning Oludeniz beach. Its where my wife and I had our first holiday :) !!
What makes this Apartment unique
Surrounded by olive / Banana and almond trees and set in the peaceful village of Ovacik, in the midst of beautiful mountain scenery. Its the perfect central base for reaching Ölüdeniz, Fethiye and Hisarönü. The apartment is less than 5 minutes walk from the closest shops, and the lively village of Hisarönü is just a 5 minute dolmus ride away, (Dolmus – Taxi style minibuses which operate regular services (every 5 mins) at minimal cost). The charming harbour and market town of Fethiye is only 15 minutes by dolmus and the stunning beach of Ölüdeniz, one of Turkey’s finest, just 10 minutes. Its great for a relaxing quiet day by the pool before heading of for your evenings entertainment

Cheap and cheerful
On arrival at our property at 4am we were very disappointed to find nobody to greet us and show us to our villa,so not knowing where to go we were almost resigned to sitting on the sun loungers by the pool to wait until somebody arrived,not happy at all!!! By chance we managed to find somebody awake who managed to get hold of the manager by phone and locate where we were to stay.The rest of our holiday went well and the villa was reasonably comfortable although there was a damp odor in the ensuite bathroom and awkward headroom.Location is on the main road so there is road noise.Would we stay here again? Not sure.
Fantastic Apartment in a perfect setting
Had an amazing time in this apartment rented from Paul and Joanne, Paul couldn't have been more helpful ,he also arranged the transfers from the airport which all went smoothly. The apartment itself has everything you need and was very clean and well furnished, there was only 4 of us but easily could take more if required. It is set in a beautiful well looked after complex which is ran superbly by Tuna and Isan who are so welcoming and helpful making you feel right at home. The location is quiet but perfect for us , shops and restaurants just a few minutes away, but if you prefer a livelier evening then a quick dolmus ride into Hisaranou or Olu Deniz is no problem at all. Will definitely be hoping to return here next year, really think we have come across a little gem.
Good location; nice apartment
We really enjoyed our time at the apartment. The pool was great, the flat was close to amenities and everyone there was friendly.
The reason I haven't given it five stars are;
1) The upstairs bathroom was very smelly (needs to be used more often, I would think)/
2) The beds were very hard.
3) No TV channels.
I would certainly stay again, though.
Wonderful apartment and surroundings
Beautiiful and clean apartment that was fully equipped with "home comforts". Plenty of sunbeds...and we never had to save them! Very often we returned to the complex in the afternoon with a choice of free beds to choose from. The pool area was spotless and well kept and the bar/pool staff extremely friendly and nothing too much trouble.
The resort is inundated with amazing restaurants and bars.
We would definitely book this apartment again from the very helpful owners. Thank you for a great holiday.
The description of the apartment was accurate. The complex is well maintained and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The apartment wasn't as close to the main shops as I thought it was but the dolmus bus makes it very easy to get to the shops and is cheap. The property itself is well maintained and the cleaner would leave arrangements on the bed with the towels and flowers, which was lovely to see (very talented lady). My only complaint was that the bed was a bit hard for my liking. The owner Paul was very helpful and arranged the transfers from the airport and back again. We ate out most nights and enjoyed all our meals but our favourite restaurant was the Ottoman in Oludeniz. If you get the dolmus then you will pass the restaurant, on the left hand side, just before the service terminates. Had a fantastic holiday and would recommend this apartment and Ovacik.
We have just come back from a two week stay and must say we couldn't fault anything. The apartment is very clean and tidy and has everything you need, washing machine was very handy. The complex itself is superb and having the on-site bar is a bonus, the staff were so friendly and helpful. The location was perfect, very central for fethiye, hisaronu and Olu Deniz, only a 5 min dolmas ride into hisaronu. Would highly recommend renting this apartment, the owners are very nice and helpful, transfers were arranged by them also. Fantastic holiday had by all!!!
