Had a great stay at Jan and Mel's apartment. It has everything you need. It's a great size and very close to the beach. It's an excellent base for the area and many places an easy car drive to visit. Jan and Mel were very helpful and even found us when we got a bit lost. They filled us in on the local area and the pool was lovely on the hot summer afternoons. Many thanks.
Jan and Mel are wonderful hosts. They had engaged in a conversation before we could actually arrive at the city, offering help to know about the directions. Both of them were present in person to receive us at the time of arrival and helped us to settle in real quick. We felt at home at the very outset. The apartment is exactly the same as one sees in the pictures. It is also located Centrally, pretty close to the Marina and shoreline. Also, it is close by to convenient stores, medical clinics and restaurants. Mel suggested certain restaurants and it turned to be a great place and experience. He also helped us plan our visits to the Ephesus and then on to the National Park Beaches. Further, he went the extra mile to speak to our other host in Istanbul whom we were supposed to stay later during the trip and guided on the visit plan to Istanbul too. Our check out was also simple and efficient. We never felt that we were meeting Jan and Mel for the first time. In all, a great apartment, great amenities as listed, great location and highly recommended for family stay.
Jan and Mel made us feel right at home. Nothing was too much trouble, you could contact them any time, day or night. The apartment was spacious and homely, plenty of room for the kids to run around!
When we arrived Jan picked us up from our shuttle bus and took us to the apartment which they had thoughtfully put juice in the fridge and bread and jams too.
The area was quiet, didn't hear any traffic at all. The beach is a five minute walk and the town is a fifteen minute stroll. There is a Wednesday market at the end of the road. There was a pool which was really quiet and we had it to ourselves most of the time. If you need any jewellery ask Mel as he has a jewellery shop in town!
Five star rating all the way.
Again, thank you Jan and Mel for letting us stay in your beautiful apartment..until next year : )
Jim had a great stay and appreciated your assistance so much. The apartment was amazing and it was a highlight of his stay. Thank you so much!
It is a great apartment, just like the pictures. If you have your own car it is a great place to stay and visit Ephesus and Sirince (about 30 min away). Jan and her husband were really helpful during our stay.
Apartman cok guzel, tipki fotograflarda gorundugu gibi. Eger kendi araciniz varsa Efes'e ve Sirince'ye 30-45 dakika icerisinde ulabiliyorsunuz. Jan ve Esi bize orda kaldigimiz surece cok yardimci oldular.
We had a wonderful three days here. The apartment is really homely with a spacious living area, handy kitchen, and comfortable bedrooms. Jan's welcome was as warm as it gets, with plenty of advice and even a small lovely hamper of food to ease us in after our journey. What's great is there's real easy access to regular mini buses and taxis running to and from key locations like Kusadesi and Selcuk. I suggest walking to and through Kusadesi to taste great Turkish food, cakes and pastries from friendly family run bakeries as well as other local treats. A local market closes off the main street on Wednesdays - we just enjoyed the mingling and teasing with vendores as we walked through.
Highly recommend if you are heading here as a group - we did and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Jan's.

About the Host, Jan & Mel
I have lived in Turkey since 1992 when I came to Kusadasi to work & decided to stay! I had been working in the travel business & worked in several different countries, including Greece, India & Lapland.
I love trying new foods & discovering new places......the feeling you have when arriving in a new place, the anticipation of what may be around the next corner.....this to me is all part of the experience of a holiday!
As a host I like to provide whatever type of holiday you need.....if you simply need me to be there to hand over keys at the beginning & end of your stay or call to see you on a daily basis ( and anything in-between ) then I will......my husband & I are more than happy to share our vast knowledge of this lovely country/region with you.
