Ahmet was a most accommodating host! He went well beyond the expectated services and instead treated me like a good friend. The Valley Cave House was a magical home. The room was lovely, beautiful carved arch ceilings, rich tapestries everywhere, full breakfast each morning with a gorgeous view of Göreme. The location is great, walking distance to everything, lovely restaurant and bathhouse just down the block. Ahmet helped out with booking tours, horse back riding, hot air balloons, shuttles and Turkish night filled with food and dancing. I could not have had a more hospitible host or a more fun and relaxing stay. I would suggest everyone to check out the magic of Göreme, and to stay with Ahmet and his lovely family at the Göreme Valley Cave House!
The Aktaş family knows how to make people feel at home. Although I arrived on the late side, Ahmet's younger brother offered me a warm cup of tea and an explanation of the next day's schedule. He immediately made me feel welcome and showed me to my charming and tidy cave room.
Each morning, a member of the family prepared a fresh and healthy breakfast for guests. Father Aktaş always greeted me with a big smile and a friendly greeting. Although I am not a morning person, I appreciated his kindness!
Ahmet handled scheduling of my outdoor activities (hot air balloon and two bus tours) so that I didn't have to lift a finger the entire time I was there, in terms of logistical planning.
Overall, this was a delightful and charming place to stay. I will recommend it to friends and family.
