We were a family of four people who stayed in this wonderful place and apartment in 24 days. I must say that both me and my husband were surprised in a very positive way once we got to this place. Everything was better than we had expected. The apartment were very clean and very comfortable with a beautiful sea view. Everything were almost new. All the rooms were furnished with good facilities. The air conditioner worked perfectly fine. We met Tolgas mother from the start who left the key to us once we arrived. Her kindness and hospitality started from the first moment when we discovered home made food, bakery and fresh fruit in the kitchen. This was really appreciated after a long trip arriving late in the evening with two children :).
It turned out that this was not the only time she was very kind, once in a while we got some Turkish food or bakery delivered to our door :)
Sevil even arranged so we had fresh bread delivered to our door every early morning which was like heaven for us :)
It must be difficult to find any better host than Sevil and Tolga. They were simply the best to us in all means :)
The pool area and the sea where you could swim were only 200 meters from us. Some days the waves in the sea were rather strong so it was not always appropriate to swim there with the children but other than that it was great :)
Just outside the compound we had access to the Turkish Dolmush who took us to the center of Yalikavak. It was not long way to walk if you would prefer that (around 15 min). The Domush from Yalikavak to Bodrum City took around 30 min specially if it was a bit of traffic.
We also rented a car for a few days and traveled around a bit but it is not necessary since Domush is available until very late in the evenings and can take you to many places.
The only thing we wished could have been a bit better about Yalikavak were the variation of Restaurants with Turkish food. You found many good restaurants but the variations were not that big.
The booking, payment and communication to the host via airbnb has worked very smoothly. We never encountered any problems.
Once again many thanks to Tolga and his wonderful mother Sevil :)
We would for sure like to recommend this place to anybody who plan to stay for holidays in Yalikavak :)
