Luxury holiday flat with lots of extras and garden, shared pool and underground parking.
You rent an apartment of the luxury category on the Turkish Aegean in Alacati at Izmir, the third largest and the sunniest city in Turkey. You live in a settlement of apartments in the best location on the bay of Alacati. The apartment is located on a hillside with stunning views.
With 82 m², it consists of a large living room with open elongated, fully equipped kitchen. A bedroom and a bathroom (with large shower). The apartment is designed principally for two. It has an extra bed for the young family. A (e) function bed / sofa bed in the living room is set up, then you can rent the apartment a total of four adults. The apartment has two air conditioners (living room + bedroom), which can act as a heater. Cable channels, connector for an iPod / iPhone (music). Internet is available in the apartment, also there are wireless and shady seatings to work at the community pool. You will also find the Yamac coffee.
A large terrace with a round dining table and a small garden invite you to wonderful brunches and dinners. May be grilled with an electric grill, which is available also. In the low season can be used in certain situations (after consultation with the local administration) and the charcoal grill (available). You have full view of the sea. The apartment is being monitored in a 24 by 6 supervisors complex with underground parking (a parking space). If necessary, Surf equipment can be stored, which lends itself for short stays a rent of the equipment in the numerous surfing clubs and schools. An elevator takes you from the garage to the houses. You then have to go about 50 meters on foot and on two sections stairs up to the apartment.
The complex consists of typical, colorful Aegean houses. There is a large communal swimming pool (and a children's pool and Jacuzzi) with showers, sun beds, Wi-Fi and a coffee. The garden is regularly maintained by gardeners and watered automatically.
The apartment is about 1.5 km from the beach, the Marina (Again, you have top restaurants with wonderful views available!) and Surfers Beach. There are many small coves with great beach clubs. If you are interested also nothing to be desired in Party and Nightlife. Nearby there is also a respectable kart track and tennis courts.
Although part of the famous resort of Cesme Alacati, but differentiates itself in many ways. First Alacati has the best and most well-known surf spot (also Kiting) in Turkey, secondly Alacati is famous for its beautiful stone houses and colorful streets of Old Town, thirdly Alacati offers excellent cuisine in a beautiful ambience. The Old Town offers Aegean food at the highest level and an opportunity to stroll and shop. On Saturdays opens a fantastic market of superlatives, where you can buy all kinds of vegetables, fruits, spices, fish, meat. Really an attraction for cooking enthusiasts and gourmets. Approximately 45 minutes from the airport Izmir with direct motorway connection. Direct bus transfer from the airport to Alacati available. Alternatively, pick-up service and taxi can be used. Marina, Surfer Beach within walking distance to the old town you order over the security personnel a taxi or use the shuttle service regularly (Dolmusch) of the city. You may always choose staff (administrative and security personnel of the plant) are available, which answers questions and helps you in organizational matters.
Tansu was very helpful organizing our stay. Excellent location with a sea view. 5 min.drive to surf schools, 10 min.to Alacati down-town. Cosy apartment that you will get more than you will expect from a summer house. Clean and tidy with modern decoration. Balcony of the apartment by itself will worth the stay. Spent 2 beautiful weeks and looking forward to stay next summer.
Well, the house is exactly as listed & you see in the pictures, no surprises. The host is very helpful & accessible via email or phone. I've been renting properties all around the world via homeaway & airbnb for years, so you won't regret trusting my judgement at all. This is a lovely and comfortable 80sqm 1+1 at the Alacati surfing paradise. At Alacati, there's a almost always (at least) a nice breeze so you won't even need the air conditioning in the apartment. The house is situated in the highly esteemed gated community Port Alacati estates, on the hill side (Yamacevler, but don't worry there's an elevator from the underground parking, which is only a short walk from the apartment) and has a marvelous view of the Alacati bay, from its garden, balcony and even the living room. It's elegantly decorated and has all the kitchen utensils you would need, (bring your own Tchibo caffissmo capsules). The kitchen and bathroom are of good quality. The bedroom has queen size double bed, there's a nice retractable couch/sofa between the living room and the kitchen as a single bed, I also assume you can use the sofa in the living room as an additional single bed. During weekend & holiday nights, if you're not already out partying, some really good up-beat music might accompany you in the balcony from the night clubs opposite the shore, but nothing really disturbing in the bedroom. There's a large pool, but who needs a pool anyway, when all the blue flag beaches (most are managed & paid tough) are just 3 minutes away (15 minutes by walk). Staying at Alacati having a car is always an advantage, if you want to go the warmer beaches of Ilica & Pasalimani, but the Dolmus (mini buses) is passing right from the gate of the estates, hourly towards both Alacati & Cesme and also towards the nearby beaches. Also, the house is only 20TL & 5 min away with a taxi, from the center of Alacati. The drinking water & simple groceries can be serviced by phone. The two downsides: 1- There's no wifi at the house (yet there's a TV and iPod w/ Bose speakers full of nice music). No wifi is not a huge problem for us locals, but I highly recommend foreign visitors to buy a prepaid data sim card at the airport or in town. 2- The mosquito net at the balcony door may be tricky to close (yes there are mosquitoes all around Alacati, as in most of Turkey). We really enjoyed our stay here and are planning to come again next year. All in all, I highly recommend this property.
On Postcards Alacati is often depicted with its windmills. Essential characteristic is the light, Aegean atmosphere that prevails in the well-kept streets with the lovingly restored wooden balconies (Cumba) and stone houses. In Alacati you find excellent restaurants, stylish cafes and fancy shops. A place that would make a quarter of the big city a very good impression. The marina of Alacati comprises 250 berths.
TO EAT OUT
In the center of Alacati and the marina and there are many good restaurants. For a change, you can also visit the marina of Cesme. There, too, there are many good restaurants.
In Cesme there are thermal waters and sludges. Both have a positive effect on the joint apparatus, particularly with regard to knee and meniscus complaints. The thermal therapy also helps in sciatica, disc and cross complaints.
Day trip to the Greek island of Chios:
Chios is a beautiful island of the north-eastern Aegean. A visit to the island takes you back to the varied history of the island. Romans, Byzantines, Venetians, Genoese and Ottomans have successively besieged the island and left their mark.
On Chios you can admire the famous 'Mastiha' (natural rubber) trees. Sorts is produced from the sap of these trees. Since it has a very special flavor, it is processed into jams, liqueurs, sweets. There are even Turkish coffee with Mastiha in Alacati (in Imren). In addition, I recommend that you time to try the highly concentrated fig brandy!
