Interaction with Guests
We are always happy to interact with guests but remain aware they may want privacy.
The neighbourhood is very quiet. Other houses are almost forgotten behind our house while we enjoy the lush green view of the tangerine orchards in front of the house. If you love animals, the neighbours' dogs will melt your heart.
Getting around is easy from either the bus stop the taxi rank a few hundred yards away. Or we have bikes guests can use to go to a beach or the village for shopping or coffee.
Other Things to Note
The town is ideal whether you want to hide under the vine in a cafe and read a book or (email hidden) to watch a match, or mingle.
Guests are free to come and go as they please. Interaction is highly recommended. Happy to sit together for drinks!
Umit and his wife were super friendly and took fantastic care of me. Even though they couldn't host me at their home, they arranged another accommodation that was perfect for my stay. They fetched me at the airport and drew me to the cottage on a Sunday late evening, during their holidays, half an hour away from their home. I could also join them for dinner next night and had a wonderful evening thanks to them. Their city is beautiful, with an ancient castle and excellent restaurants. They also recommended me the best beaches of the region. I am very happy to have met Umit and his family and hope to have another opportunity to visit them again!
It was a great pleasure to stay these 2 nights at Alison's and Umit's place. They welcomed us warmly and propose us to share a drink with them. Thanks to them and their good tips, we discovered nice places and cities.
Accommodation is also very good and comfortable. You will enjoy the very large terrace with a beautiful view on the tangerines and the sea.
Alison and Umit offered us a traditional turkish breakfast, delicious!
We were so sad to leave their house, hope we could come back.
Thanks a lot for everything Alison and Umit, take care and we wish a long life to Sunsets & Tangerines.
We had the best time of our jorney through turkey at Umet's nd Alison's Place. We had this amazing terrace for ourself and they were just super nice hosts. They organized us the boats tour nd gave us tips for secret spots. The bedroom nd bathroom was clean nd comfy. Hope to come back one day. Thanks for having us. :)
Un accueil chaleureux, fabuleux même, nous nous sommes très vite sentis comme chez nous, entre amis, avec Alison et Umit.
La maison, et la partie supérieure réservée aux locataires sont très belle et grande, meublée avec goût. Terrasse privative (quel clair de lune fabuleux le deuxième soir). Bien située en bord de mer (aperçu mer depuis la terrasse), avec la marina très proche, à 45 minutes du site d'EFES et à 50 minutes de l'aéroport d'IZMIR.
Nous recommandons cet endroit qui nous a laissé la meilleure impression de notre circuit de 15 jours en Turquie, avec encore une fois un grand merci pour l'accueil et le partage avec Alison et Umit.

The perfect B and B. Having not stayed in any sort of B and B before I really didn't know what to expect. This place blew away any sort of expectations I may have thought I had. Before I had got anywhere near Turkey, I already felt welcomed by Umit's detailed advice on travel and whether it was a safe place for me to visit on my own (which it certainly was). The house itself is very clean, comfortable and homely and also has a really nice relaxing, spacious feel to it. The gorgeous guest rooms, and amazing terrace are at the top of the house, so if you are looking to relax and have space it's easy to feel very private. The guest bathroom is very spacious, clean and nice. I really enjoyed the turkish breakfast (at what ever time I wanted it) every morning on their terrace over looking the tangerine orchards- in fact I still miss starting my day like that! Both Umit and Alison are dream hosts- very down to earth and totally welcoming - always on hand to offer advice about the local area and generally great people to have a good old chat and a beer with (if that's what you're like). I would absolutely recommend this place as worth a visit either on your way through or even for a weeks break as I did. The village and it's surrounding area was just perfect for a relaxing holiday, with many beach options a short cycle/ walk away. I found each and every local person to be amazingly friendly and helpful.
Location: nice, in a quiet residential area near the little town Sigacik and the sea.
Room: nice room, large and perfectly cleaned at the top floor of the house where the family lives. Great terrace with a nice view. Large bathroom with all you need.
Staff: Umit, Aniston and their son Alex are really nice. They help you in everything, giving advice and talking about everything. You feel like at home!
Breakfast: traditional turkish. Rich and tasteful.
Hope to see you again!
We had a great time at Sunsets & Tangerines. Umit and Alison are fantastic hosts and were very helpful and accommodating during our stay. The room is large and comfortable and has its own balcony, which allowed us the magical experience of sleeping out under the stars. We enjoyed visiting local beaches and restaurants, windsurfing, and soaking up the peaceful atmosphere of Izmir province. We highly recommend it.

About the Host, Umit
Husband to a beautiful wife, father to a handsome son......
Lived and worked in London for most of my life and decided to leave the rat-race and get a life! The first house we saw we bought! So far, we are all loving it! Keen on swimming and snorkelling. Like a drink now and then. Don't get to barbecue often enough!
Favourite pastime is probably cooking at home whilst enjoying a drink with my wife whilst music is playing out loud.....but there's also being able to cycle to the local beach, have a beer while drying off and cycle back home.....and then there's jumping in the car and having a barbecue by the sea after a swim.....and then.......!
Eat right by the waters edge overlooking the bay! Best location for a picturesque view of Sigacik. More up market prices.Seferihisar Merkez Izmir Province
A family run place serving a variety of simple fish dishes at very reasonable prices. 10 to 15 minute walk from us.Seferihisar Merkez Izmir Province
Right by a beautiful beach, this place is run by a bubbly and generous husband and wife team that will do all they can to please their customers. Delicious simple food and refreshing beers and wines.Sığacık Izmir Province 35460
