STUNNING MODERN HOLIDAY APARTMENT IN SIDE TURKEY

Side Apartment Rental Photos and Description

You will be very welcome at our beautifully presented, immaculately finished, contemporary apartment on the 2007-built award-winning Oasis complex. 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, outdoor pool & indoor pool (open in winter), kids pool, gym, tennis court. Perfect for couples & families. The apartment is in Side, (pronounced Seeday) on Turkey’s wonderful Mediterranean coast (NOT in the usual British-tourist-filled resorts of Bodrum, Marmaris etc.) Side is a terrific little town, full of character, with a lovely harbour, lots of bars & restaurants & shops, Roman ruins to explore, boat trips, jeep safaris, white-water rafting, & you can go pony trekking, walking; even snow skiing is within reach. The fabulous golf area of Belek is just 30 mins away, with 5 or 6 world class courses. Or you can just relax, sunbathe & swim, eat & drink of course! We can arrange personal transfers at really competitive prices with English drivers, a Welcome Pack to start you off, and we provide an Information Guide before you go. We have English speaking contacts to help whilst you’re there. We'll do all we can to ensure you feel comfortable, relaxed and confident that you will have a great holiday! (Sorry: not suitable for stag/hen parties).

Our stunning luxurious, air-conditioned 5-star holiday apartment is furnished to a very high standard, with regularly-replaced crockery, cutlery, kitchen utensils etc. (We hate it too when there aren't enough glasses, or the cups are all cracked & old. Everything in our apartment is clean & fresh) The apartment is pool-facing on the new Oasis complex, centred around the large circular outdoor pool with its feature bridge leading you over to the heated indoor pool (open off-season only). There is also a shallow children's pool, adjacent to the main pool. The floodlit tennis courts & air conditioned gym (both free to residents) will appeal to active guests while the small café/bar, pool table, table tennis & small children’s indoor play area are enough for others. The complex is also protected all year round by 24-hour security, with a manned entrance gate. The security team are always happy to help guests too.

In the apartment itself, the lounge opens onto a fantastic private large balcony overlooking the pool and gardens.

We have placed two sun-beds, a fan, an outside table & 4 chairs on the balcony so it's ideal for quiet sunbathing, enjoying breakfast or other relaxing meals and evening drinks! The master bedroom has a king-size bed, en-suite shower room and another smaller balcony. The second bedroom has 2 single beds, bedside cabinet & wardrobe. There are also 2 large sofa beds in the open-plan main living area. Indoor towels are provided but please bring your own beach/pool towels.

There is also a free shuttle bus service to & from the local beach. What's more, many restaurants will pick up & drop off customers for free if you call them (phone numbers in the apartment so take your mobile). You'll find the prices pleasing compared to home, as Turkey doesn't use the Euro as its official currency yet. We use Turkish Lira but Euros are accepted widely if you prefer. To ensure comfort we limit occupancy to 6 people, but it is not suitable for 6 adults as the sofa-beds are only big enough for children.

However, we can help if you need to arrange for larger parties as we are in touch with other Oasis owners who also rent their apartments. Please contact us with your requirements.

NEWS FOR 2013: Exchange rate currently very favourable for those changing Sterling into Turkish Lira. It was 2.16 Turkish Lira (YTL) to £1 a couple of years ago (when one of our reviewers said they didn't find it that cheap). As I write this (Nov 2012) you can get 2.80 YTL to £1! There are plenty of restaurants where you can eat for less than £10 each so we are confident that you will find it to be good value. Plenty of places accept Euros too but we always take YTL. There are cash-points (ATMs) around the town so don't worry too much about changing enough to last for your whole holiday. We often get a better exchange rate out there anyway.

We always keep the availability calendar up to date so please do check whether your required dates are available.

We are a family who fell in love with Side on our first visit! The apartment is not one of many we rent just for profit - it is our only one - our home abroad & we pride ourselves in presenting it as we would like to find a holiday home.

Kate purchased this apartment in 2007

We looked at plenty of properties in the Side area, but chose this one because of the facilities on the complex, the easy walk to the nearby shops, bars & restaurants, and because of the superb finish & spacious feel of the apartment. Granite worktops, lovely coving & architraves, down-lighters everywhere, huge balcony, two bathrooms, jacuzzi bath. These are not things you will plan your holiday around, but having a good quality base where you feel relaxed & safe will be appreciated when it's your holiday home for a week or two!

First class !!!

  • 5 of 5
Our overall experience on booking this holiday was better than first class. From initial booking to accommodation and transfers, everything was just perfect.
On arrival we had been offered a welcome pack at a charge, this was a great little touch as it was full of those little extras that you need on arrival.
The apartment is well situated overlooking the exceptional and well kept gardens and pool, a lovely place to relax on an evening with a glass of wine.
Everything in the apartment has been well thought of, from books to use DVDs if you fancy a film to watch or even just a soak in the hot tub bath.
My overall experience from booking this great apartment and contact with the owners has been fantastic !!! Not a problem from start to finish and would recommend this apartment to any friends or family.
Thank you so much for making our booking so easy and having one of the best holidays to date.

Lovely and Chilled

  • 4 of 5
We had a lovely, chilled time.
Flat was great, spacious, comfortable and clean. Everything you could want. Bed was comfortable. Kitchen was good-we ate in about half the time-supermarkets very cheap and good fruit and veg about.
Complex was great and swimmimg pool a good option to beach although beach was great-sunbeds were served by a good bunch of lads. Turks a really good friendly bunch who we always enjoyed talking to and we found not too pushy.
Town was lovely and a easy walk in.
Brush up on your middle eastern history as well preserved ancient sites (particularly roman) are around every corner-the greeks, romans, christians crusaders have all been through the area.
We hired a car-driving was straight forward and requires you to use common sense as much as rules and regulations. We had no trouble finding the flat from the airport and that in a torrential downpour-out of the airport and turn left, keep going until you see the sign for Side easy. And generally easy to get around.
Weather was lovely 30-35C, a bit above the expected average.
This time of year has its advantage in that it is very quiet.
Were there any bad points-the only a minor thing-food was good, but menus were very similiar to cater for the north european tourist-I shouldn't have bought a book on middle eastern food, but I'm sure that you could find more local food if you venture of the beaten path.
Hope this is of help.
We really enjoyed ourselves and will certainly go back to turkey again.

We had a very enjoyable time at your apartment in Side. We found it very comfortable and well equipped especially with air con in all the rooms as it was very hot.
The complex was kept very clean and tidy by the staff and the snack bar was ideal when spending a lazy day by the pool.
The information provided in the apartment, visitor book, guides, etc were very helpful.
The apartment was in an ideal location. We preferred the laid back atmosphere in Kemer far more than the hustle and bustle of Side, which is about half hour walk away or 5 minutes on the dolmus. We also found that not only was the food in Kemer cheaper it was also better quality, especially Korreli's, Korner Bar and Kosum Gardens.
We did the rafting which was a good day out and a different experience from the normal trips although I wouldn't recommend it to families with small children.
We visited Manavgat, making our own way on the dolmus, and went on a boat trip to the water falls. There are some lovely bars and restaurants by the river in Manavgat to sit and watch the world go by.
There are several mini bus services to "No Name Beach" which are free and once you are at the beach complimentary sunloungers and umbrellas are provided all you are asked to do is buy food and drinks from the beach bar which provides the loungers. These are slightly more expensive than in Kemer but still very reasonable.
I would recommend both your apartment and Kemer to anybody.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your tremendous review - really useful comments & observations for other visitors, and pleasing for us that you had such a wonderful time.

We appreciate what you say about the rafting - perhaps not suitable for (say) under 8s but when we did it there were 10 & 12 year olds who loved it, & everyone gets a life jacket, of course.

Good comments about choice of restaurants too. As in all seaside towns, those by the harbour or with the great sea views tend to be more expensive, but there are gems with great food & atmospheres to be found in other areas. With so many to choose from, there's something for everyone!

Glad you enjoyed Side and our apartment. Your feedback is greatly appreciated.

Just returned from this lovely apartment, spacious, well equipped nicely furnished. The Complex was really well maintained, the pool was fantastic, the grounds beautiful and the staff all helpful and friendly. Plenty of bars and restaurants nearby and a good selection of menus/info etc in the apartment. The guest book was a really good idea with everyone invited to leave hints and tips. There were plenty of sun beds and umbrellas (very welcome as it was over 40 degrees!). Side is a lovely place and still quite cheap. We did a couple of trips, white-water rafting and the opera at Aspendos amphitheatre, both we're marvellous and really good value. Many thanks to Kate for all her help, she made everything so easy, nothing was too much trouble. Have a great time.

Turkey was voted the UK's favourite holiday location recently. The Mediterranean coast of Turkey enjoys over 300 days sunshine per year, so this area is your best choice when you're considering a holiday in Turkey. The long beaches are clean, a superb paved, beach-side 16km promenade walk has recently been completed and the sea is warm & clean. You can enjoy the quieter side to the west of the town (just a few wooden beach bars/cafe's, which disappear in winter!) or the busier east beach, with many hotels, cafe's, bars, fresh cold-juice sellers & watersports (including jet-skiing, paragliding & banana boats).

Combine all of this with the rich culture, history and ancient ruins, & you'll have a fabulous holiday. And all of this within walking distance! The bustling & interesting town of Manavgat is 10 mins away. Go by Dolmus (local bus - good fun) for less than £1. Or hire bikes at our friendly & helpful local hire shop.
