Eolya Konukevi
Ranked #6 of 88 Ayvalik B&B and Inns
Reviewed 20 May 2013

This lovely little place is close to everything, and yet quiet and private at the same time. Eolya Guesthouse is a beautifully renovated 100+ year old building, that has been tastefully remodeled by the owner, Erinc. She could not be more helpful or hospitable, and went out of her way to make us feel at home. Each morning, we were served a wonderful homemade breakfast of cheeses, olives, local specialties, cucumbers, tomatoes, and freshly baked bread and muffins - something different every day! We stayed in the blue room, which is a compact space with all the necessities charmingly provided. Our favorite feature of the room was the private terrace, complete with furniture for relaxing or having a glass of wine in the evening. Some nights we even slept with the door open, and enjoyed the cool night air.
My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights, and we whole-heartedly recommend that you stay here for your visit to this gem of a quiet seaside resort. We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay.

Room Tip: The Eolya website has very good photos of the rooms, to help you choose. Hair dryers are provided...

We stayed only for one night, the owner and her little daughter were very friendly. Very cosy place, the rooms are quite small, very cleverly designed to include a bath:) very authentic and conveniently located.

We have just returned from a one WEEK stay at Eolya Konukevi and rate it as one of our top Turkish B&B experiences. EVEN better, in some ways, than pricey Alacati.
You DO feel as though you have the privilege of being a houseguest in the home of a kind woman with her darling daughter! The renovation could be straight out of the pages of a Turkish issue of Maison Francaise.
We chose the smaller blue room because we enjoyed the added luxury of the outdoor terrace. For a lengthy stay it gave us a sense of having a small apt. to return to for a respite from the summer heat and simply use the WIFI.
After exploring the hilly backstreets of Ayvalik where most of the other B&Bs are located, we appreciated Erinc's location even more. Although atmospheric, navigating the cobblestones COULD easily result in a sprained ankle. Eolya is just a few feet in from the main street which takes you along the majority of Ayvalik's cafes, shops, and the seaside promenade.
Kudos to both Erinc and her housekeeper/baker/cook because between these two capable women you will not be subjected to store bought items. Each day was a variation on the copious Turkish breakfast that EVEN included some dessert items.
Lastly, I appreciated the cleanliness and orderliness of this home.
True, the rooms and baths can be a little on the small side but the housekeeping with fresh towels daily was impeccable.
Do yourself a favor and experience Erinc's wonderfully executed endeavor!

Cozy place with lovely small boutique rooms where we will definitely return!

We stayed here in mid June and had a wonderful time, the Eolya Guest House is a haven...
We stayed in the Blue Room, which was beautifully decorated and had its own balcony. The owner - Erinc was very kind and went out of her way to make us comfortable. We were treated to a delicious breakfast each morning. We loved it.
Thank you Erinc!

Room Tip: The Blue Room has a lovely balcony*

As a female traveling alone, I was grateful to find this gem. The breakfast served each morning was superb. I tasted fruits and vegetables I had never seen before in addition to delicious pastries she made fresh each day and the option to order an omelette of my choice. It was a breakfast fit for a queen! The house is elegant, immaculately clean and the owner is a very sweet woman. She even called the bus station and had a ticket reserved for me for the following morning. I wish I could have stayed longer!

We recently stayed here for one night, to break up our bus trip between Canakkale and Kusadasi. We were disappointed to be leaving after only one night, as our host, Erinc, warmly welcomed us into her beautiful home.

It really did feel like we were staying in her home, with one of 3 rooms upstairs, each with its own bathroom and privacy when required. Ours also had a little terrace looking out from the front of the house. The bathroom was small, but made effective use of limited space, and the room exceptionally clean.

Erinc was a wonderful host, attending to all of our requests without any fuss, including restaurant reservations, bus timetable enquiries and trying to recover a lost camera! Nothing was too much trouble.

The house also has a lovely little internal courtyard in which the delectable breakfast is served. A traditional Turkish breakfast was served with all sorts of home made jams and pastes, olives, salads, cheeses - and best of all, home made omlette and pastries.

I cannot thank Erinc enough for being such a wonderful host.
