“Beyond our expectations!”
Reviewed 5 July 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Our first time to rent a house in Turkey was a very positive experience, far beyond our expectations really. We so appreciate Alison. She helped us find just the right houses (we rented two actually) to fit our budget. She is a true professional, honest, friendly, and most available when we had questions. We look forward to seeing her again next year. We think she is special! The Goldsmith house was our favorite. Two beautiful gardens. The Fortuna house was very nice and roomy. Both are well located in Selcuk.

“Good base for an excellent first visit to Turkey”
Reviewed 11 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Alison provided great communication and was very efficient. The house is in a great location, not only for walking into Selcuk and Ephesus, but also for venturing further afield to Hierapolis and the sea side. (The car hire and airport transfers Alison arranged were good value and really convenient).

Unlike many rental properties we've used the garden was well maintained and lovely to sit in and enjoy the Easter sunshine.

We even braved the pool (also well looked after) although it was somewhat bracing in early April. Thanks for helping us have a lovely holiday.

“Couldn't possibly better this”
Reviewed 16 June 2012 for a stay in April 2012

We stayed at Goldsmith House for a week over the Easter holidays. Alison was in contact from the moment we booked, she stocked the fridge for us with items we requested (mostly fruit!), arranged collection at the airport, and met us at the house despite the late hour of our arrival to show us how things worked and where the bread kiosk was. The house was immaculately clean, simply but amply furnished and very, very attractive. The location is super -- an easy walk into Selcuk centre (slightly shorter but more strenuous path was available over the top of the hill), an easy stroll to the Ephesus Museum, slightly longer walk to the Artemesium, easy walk to the St. John's Basilica and the grand 14th Century mosque. It is even possible for the fit to walk to/from Ephesus's site itself, but we took the dolmus. The small pool is absolutely lovely, situated in the back garden and kept spotlessly clean. Our son loved it even though it was just a bit cold at that time of year: wearing a T-shirt to swim in kept him warm enough. The house has two bathrooms, one inside (with washing machine) and one outside (handy for the gardens and pool), both equipped with very nice showers. There are two bedrooms, one of which has twin beds and a futon and the other of which has a double bed. All beds were very comfortable. There is a front and a back garden, both of which are very pleasant to sit in. The back garden features some fruit trees and vegetables: we enjoyed picking fresh lemons, lettuce, spring onions and herbs for our salads. The kitchen is small but conveniently laid out and well-equipped. The front of the house features a large glass-enclosed porch with table, dining chairs and comfy reading chairs, and the glass doors can be fully opened to the fresh air. One thing we really enjoyed was being able to recline in the garden and bird-watch effortlessly: storks, a wide variety of song-birds, jackdaws, crows, doves and pigeons, many attracted to the nearby Artemesium. If you like birds, bring binoculars! What we enjoyed the most was the utter peace. It wasn't just that the neighbourhood was quiet, but there was something about the house and gardens that made it especially peaceful -- a real haven. And, except for half-a-dozen steps up from the garden to the house itself, the house is very accessible. If you can manage the few steps up and down, it would be suitable for the less mobile (but not wheelchair accessible). Altogether I have only one regret -- that we had to leave at the end of the week. It is a house where one could easily and comfortably spend weeks, months or years.

“Great house in great location”
Reviewed 1 June 2012 for a stay in May 2012

E spent a great week staying at Goldsmith's house in Selcuk. The house itself is in a really pretty part of town, close to the centre yet far enough away to feel tranquil. The house itself was great - really clean, had a well equipped kitchen and the living spaces (both indoor and outside) were great. In terms of location Selcuk was really good - lots to see and do within a reasonable distance (we visited the main sites round Selcuk as well as Dilek national park) and found for our pace of site visiting a week was just right. Overall a really good holiday location and would fully recommend.
