Izmir House Rental Photos and Description
2 bedroom, 2,5 bath home steps away from restaurants, cafes and 2km to beaches

LOCATION!!! This charming 2 bedroom 2,5 bathroom semi-detached house is located in the quaint town of Alacati, an Aegean town on the west coast of Turkey. Sleeps 4. Located just steps away from the shops, restaurants, bars, and cafes of the ancient village and only 2 kilometres away from the town's famous wind/kite surf centre, this home is tastefully decorated in the colours of the area. Bright colours blend with the sun and cool breezes to create an inviting, relaxing environment. Perfect for 2 couples OR 1 couple and 2 children (both bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms), there is plenty of space to spread out. You will particularly enjoy the front terrace, and the well-maintained, enclosed garden (with outdoor shower) which provides privacy, while everything the village offers is right at your doorstep. On Saturdays, a large section of Alacati is transformed into a spectacular covered market where you can buy local vegetables, cheeses, bread, olives, as well as linens, and souvenirs.

Unique benefits of the property: A hallmark of Alacati - ancient wind-mills dot the hillside above our home. These ancient stone built structures, and their modern counterparts, bear testimony to the steady winds that have favored this region for centuries. Indeed, Alacati is a very special place. By day you'll enjoy the myriad of activities: wind-surfing, kiting, the beaches, and the historic surroundings. Then in the evening, when you return home with sun-warmed skin, the town is transformed into a chic, classy experience. Dresses come out, and fancy footwear is donned (despite the cobble streets). You'll sit amongst the ancient homes, in ancient streets, enjoying the distinctive food and flavors, while marveling at the beauty of this unmatched locale.

About the owner: I'm a Turkish-American citizen who loves to introduce others to the beauty, and richness of my culture. The style of our home reflects this fondness of my heritage. We've used original stone throughout much of the house, and added design elements that are reminiscent of days gone by. At the same time, you'll find the amenities and conveniences that make for a very comfortable stay. We welcome you and wish you an unforgettable experience! About the Name: Lady Bird House. We refer affectionately to our home in Alacati as 'Lady Bird House' in memory of my grandmother whose nickname for me was 'Mujde ugurbocegi' - Mujde the Lady Bird.

Mujde Pidduck purchased this house in 2009

My husband and I fell in love with Alacati when we first visited it in 2006! It was the perfect place for us both; kite/windsurfing, beautiful Aegean architecture, galleries that reflect Turkish culture and art, delicious food, approximity to gorgeous beaches. When we returned in 2009 we could not resist being a part of this charming town AND we found our lovely home in a walking distance to all of the things we love about Alacati.

When you stay at our place 'Ladybird' you will understand why we feel so fortunate!

Harika Alaçati ve harika bir ev

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 31, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
12 gün harika bir sekilde ben, hanimim ve 16 yasindaki kizimiz ile bu güzel, temiz, zentral konumu olan sevgi ve özenle dösenmis evde günlerimizi geçirdik.
Amacimiz kizimizin Surf-Okuluna gidip ögrenmesi ve fazla uzak olmayan Efese, Meryem Anaya, Sirinlere gitmek ve ülkemizin Kültür Zenginligine tanik olmakti.
Ekim ayini seçmemizin iki sebebi vardi: birincisi havalarin sicak olmamasi ve Kitle-Turizminden uzak ta olmamiz.
Ev dolmus duragindan ve Garajlara 200 metre, Sehire ve bakkalara 100 m uzaklikta,
Barlar ve Lokantalarda hemen iki adim ileride.
Eger kedi ve köpekleri seviyorsaniz yeteri kadar var. Pisi pisi dedinizmi hemen evin etrafini ceviren yüksek duvardan hemen iki tane bahcede size belli bir uzaklikta boy gösteriyorlar. Ayrica bahcede bir Uhu ve bir tanede utangaç bir Kurbaga ile karsilastik. Evin bahçesi fazla büyük olmamasina ragmen bütün ihtiyacinizi karsiliyor.
Evin içinde yok yok. Her sey var. büyük bir aile içinde yeterli.
Evin sahibi Müjde hanim Amerikada kalmasina ragmen her seyi Mail ile halledebiliyorsunuz. Izmir havaalanindan yaklasik bir saat uzaklikta ve ücret Transer-Firmalari ile 120 liraya geliyor. Taxi tavsiye etmem pahalli. Diger ulasim metodu Havas ile yapmak fakat Havas sizi Çesmeye götürüyor.
Bu evi Aile ile yada iki kisi gelenlere tavsiye ederiz. Kusursuz ev.

Tesekkürler Müjde Hanim, tekrar görüsmek üzere....
Owner's Response: Vedat Bey, ayrintili yorumlariniz ve guzel sozleriniz icin cok tesekkurler. Ailenizle birlikte evimiz Alacati Ladybird'de guzel vakit gecirmenize cok sevindim. Yine bekleriz. Almanya'ya selamlar! Mujde

We were lucky that we found this place. It was exactly what we were hoping for. Walking distance to town but far enough that you are not disturbed by the night-life" Rolf and family
