“Lovely Retreat”
Reviewed 16 May 2012 for a stay in May 2012

This is a charming house on the edge of the small city of Selcuk. The house has one bedroom with a queen size bed and a second room which can really be used as a second bedroom because it does have a twin bed and a futon that could function as another bed. This room is really called the living room and it has a fireplace. The kitchen is cozy but it has everything you really need and we did cook here. We used everything, the dishwasher and the stove and oven.. we missed having a microwave. The bathroom is very modern and has a nice shower. There is also a washing machine and the clothes are hung out to dry in the lovely garden full of roses, phlox and citrus trees. I would say the garden is the jewel in the crown of this house. We also enjoyed the covered outdoor patio area which had fireplace and we made use of this every morning. The mornings were cool in the beginning of May so a little fire with our morning coffee was perfect. Alison is a very attentive and gracious manager and was willing to help in any way...even before we arrived.

“A beautiful haven in a great town”
Reviewed 16 August 2011 for a stay in August 2011

We thoroughly enjoyed our 12 day stay in the Garden House. It is beautifully restored and very well equipped with all amenities including a kitchen with everything you need to actually cook! The garden is lovely and there are lots of nice places to sit in the shade including an outside living area. Our children were very excited to find two tortoises! The small pool shared with next door is beautiful for a cooling dip or playing our version of water handball. We enjoyed spending time in Selcuk - taking it very easy with the sights - mosque, St Johns Basilica, Temple of Artemis, Ephesus, Museum,Mary's house, Turkish Bath (for the boys! - girls too nervous....) and a great market on Saturday. There are lots of great places to eat too. Alison, the manager, was very welcoming and helpful with information and advice. We didn't fancy driving but we hired a car and she organised a driver for us to see the wonderful sights - Priene, Miletus and Didyma. Would definetely recommend.....
