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.
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!
See all of the above!
