      Sunset House

      This is a very nice flat with a terrific view of Selcuk. The flat was very clean, with excellent beds and plenty of towels. The plants and terrace view are wonderful. Alison was very responsive, giving advice before we arrived and while we were there. She found us an excellent guide on short notice for our tour of Ephesus. The bathroom is large ( a nice change from some places we’d stayed) and the washing machine worked well. The wifi worked well; a big storm knocked it out one evening but Alison quickly got it back in order the next morning. We enjoyed being in an everyday neighborhood and getting a feel for life there. Quickly got to know the market owner about three blocks away. The address is a little tricky to find up in the hills when you first come into the city (GPS helps) but we were fine after that. Allison recommended the Ejder restaurant near the square. We ate there twice and second her vote. We also recommend the terrace restaurant at the Hotel Bella opposite the St John Basilica entrance. The decor is old style, with divans, carved tables and woodwork, and an eye-level view of the stork nests complete with chicks. Also, if possible be there Saturday to catch the market: acres of the most beautiful produce you’ve ever seen. Don’t miss the Ephesus Museum. Selcuk is definitely worth three days, because you should include a tour of the St John’s Basilica and the fortress as well. Amazing how much restoration they’ve done there in a relatively short amount of time, but without harming the historical feel.

    • Ionia House was a warm welkom in a fantastic house. The house was great in all aspects: beautifull garden, nice swimmingpool with terras overlooking the city of Selcuk. The house had fully equiped kitchen, good beds and nice bathroom. All build and decorated with great care.

    • The Garden house was a great stay. The pictures are an accurate representation of the house and grounds. Quite, clean and well appointed. We sincerely enjoyed the stay. Alison was very helpful and communicated well. Hope we can stay there again in the future. NB - If you do have young kids you should be aware that there are some cactus on the property that kids could get into. My one year old could play in the grass and chase the cats around but we did have to watch for the sharp plants. For slightly older kids it would be fine but you have to watch for the little ones.

    • Alison was terrific, very helpful with good local insights into places to go, and ways to make the most of our stay in Selcuk. She arranged the airport transfer (both ways), and facilitated a car rental, and upgraded us to the Ionian House which was unexpected but a nice treat. In short, she' knows what shes doing, and was genuine about helping us love Selcuk and Efus.


      What Geoff loved about your listing:
      The pool, neighborhood grocer, and proximity to town

    • We booked Garden House for 2 nights and this is our only complain! We should have stayed longer, enjoy this fantastic designed property! The house was clearly design/ renovated by a professional, you can easily detect small well-placed details like build-in cabinets, the layout of the rooms, the kitchen appliances, the custom- made wooden furniture. It has everything you might think ( kitchen supplies, bathroom supplies, extra towels, extra sheets and blankets)! We appreciated the design of the shower and the speed of hot running water. The outside space is also fantastic and the yard is beautiful, with manicured grass. In the morning the jasmine and yellow rose smell divine! Bonus: the fluffiest purring cat ever! Extra bonus: a likeable host, anticipating her guests needs! Had exchange lot of messages helping us to get there, provided info about places to eat or to buy. Never had to wait for a response! We are sure that not only Garden House, but all Alison's properties are beautiful and worth to stay at! We would return anytime!

    • We came to stay at Garden House for three nights at the end of our honeymoon. Alison, the host, immediately made us feel very welcome and went well beyond the call of duty throughout. The house itself is beautiful and well appointed. It has a largeish, carefully tended garden with a shady outdoor seating area, and another covered table with a barbecue out at the back. Inside, Garden House is cosy and tastefully decorated. We had an excellent time and thoroughly recommend staying here.

    • We stayed in the Garden House and shared the garden and pool with our friends who stayed in the Goldsmith House. Both properties were beautiful and spotless. The grounds are gorgeous and make you feel like you are in your own private oasis. Allison was wonderful, she arranged everything for us and even met us upon our arrival to ensure everything was up to standard and to answer all of our questions. Our stay was one of the best we have ever had. We definitely work with Allison again if we return to Selcuk again.


      What Elizabeth loved about your listing:
      Allison, we truly enjoyed our stay. Thank you for making our Byrum holiday memorable.

    • Wow!! Ionia House...This house was perfect for a family vacation. The outdoor dining terrace was beautiful. Selcuk is a charming town with a great farmers market, restuarants, and shops. The location provides easy access to a number of historical sites. Alison was a terrific host. She arranged for a cook and a driver, who were both fantastic! Even after our stay was over she continued to help us out when we were in the area. We all agreed it was a 5 star stay. I would definitely stay at The Stone House again. Thank you Alison from all of us!!


      What Katherine loved about your listing:
      The outdoor living space provided us with family time in a very relaxed environment. The house itself is a work of art.

    • Alison was very welcoming and informative. The house is lovely...the yard and pool are a wonderfully beautiful respite from the rigors of traveling! The location is very close to the center of town with all visitor services within easy walking distance. Alison arranged for a tour and guide as well as a car rental on another day. It was all very flawless. highly recommend the house!

    • Place was perfect! Really top notch quality of furnishings and decor. Up to date but also authentic. Privacy and comfort were fantastic In a small space had several outdoor spaces to gather in plus the pool. All protected from the outside world by a hillside terrace. Alison was great. Met us at arrival, arranged for lunch to be delivered, found us a great guide and picked up the keys-all with a pleasant smile

    • Wir hatten wunderbare Tage in Selcuk. Die Wohnung war perfekt für uns. Alles war sauber, gut ausgestattet und es war genug Platz für sechs Leute. Von der Dachterasse hat man einen tollen Blick über Selcuk. Vielen Dank an Alison.

    • We had a great stay at Goldsmith House and it exceeded my expectations - the house was nicely equipped for a short stay and extremely well taken care of. Grounds and house were beautiful and kept very clean. The host was extremely helpful and arranged local transfers and car hire at a very reasonable price- she had great knowledge of the local attractions and provided some useful tips and ideas.

    • We really want to thank you Alisson, for this wonderful house which was, surprisingly (in comparison of a majority of announces) exactly what we waited for regarding the description and pictures. Selcuk is really a good destination, not too touristic, but near a lot of must sites. The cook was really good, and the services in general. We recommand warmly Alisson !

      Response from Alison:

    • Wir haben zwei Wochen im Paradies verbracht. Alison, Du bist eine wunderbare Gastgeberin und wir danken Dir für die Organisation von Auto und Transfer. Das Haus und der Garten sind idyllisch, der Pool wurde von uns und den Kindern rege genutzt. Die Lage in Selcuk ist optimal, ein ruhiges Quartier und um die Ecke Moschee, Basilika und Festung, das Stadtzentrum hinter ein paar Gassen. Selcuk ist gemütlich und angenehm, genau richtig, um die Hektik der Touristenorte zu umgehen. Danke!!!!
