About This Listing
St John’s cottage is cute, comfortable and affordable accommodation in the perfect location. Just a stones throw away from the architectural wonders of Selcuk and a 2 minute walk from restaurants and refreshments.
St. John’s Cottage is situated on the hillside opposite St. John’s Basilica, it is within short walking distance to Ayasuluk Castle and a minute walk from the town (website hidden). John’s Cottage comfortably sleeps four; there is a living room, kitchen, utility room and bathroom. Outside the roof terrace covers the entire area of the property and there is also a garden at the front of the property. The cottage has been recently renovated and combines modern lifestyle with contemporary Turkish design.
Some of our favorite places to visit are the Selçuk market; which is in Selçuk every Saturday and Wednesday selling a variety of goods: fruit & veg, clothes, household products, chickens, plants and knickknacks.
The Hammam: is a Turkish bath House where you can go to relax and unwind, experience a Turkish scrub & massage, or just enjoy lounging on the hot stone. The Hammam is mixed with both men and women for most of the week then on Fridays 12:00 until 16:00 it's ladies only.
Pamucak Beach: is a favorite spot to take a picnic and is particularly beautiful at sunset, if you’re feeling adventurous you can trek across the beach on horseback or hire a quad bike.
Guests will have complete access in and around the property grounds including exclusive use of the roof top terrace with views of the Selcuk Castle and Basilica of St. John

We had a great (email hidden) Johns Cottage and enjoyed its central location. All the facilities were great. Thanks to Menekse for the hospitality and tourism advice.
Our stay at St. John's cottage was great. Menekse was very welcoming and helpful. Unfortunately the cold weather didn't allow us to take advantage of the rooftop deck. The location was excellent, close to important sites and downtown, but yet quiet. Selcuk was a great place to visit. All four of us had a wonderful time.
Great spot really close to the city centre and a short drive (or walk) to Ephesus! Our host was very helpful and pointed out some great spots to eat in town.
The Cottage was a lovely place to stay. We stayed here for two nights with another couple and the space was comfortable for four people. It is a minute from the Basilica and castle, a two minute walk to downtown and five minutes from the train and bus stations. Great location! Menekse was very helpful in getting us oriented with the town. She recommended good restaurants (make sure to visit Tat for chicken curry!), and arranged a taxi for us to visit Ephesus. Selcuk is a lovely town, we highly recommend a stay here!
This is the best location in Selçuk! The cottage is right beside the St. John's Church and Ayasuluk Fortress sites (seriously, you can almost touch the outer wall of the church).
The cottage was clean and as described. No problems or complaints at all about the unit itself.
The host, Menekşe was friendly, more than helpful, and attentive. She took us to the cottage, showed us on a map where the tourist sites were, and gave us some good restaurant recommendations. Superb!
This was a great experience! Would couldn't have asked for a better housing situation in Selçuk.
Ferienwohnung in perfekter Lage - ruhig, mit schönem Blick auf Festung und Innenstadt, und trotzdem dicht dran an allem.
Menekse gibt einen sehr guten Überblick über Sehenwürdigkeiten, empfehlenswerte Restaurants etc., und ist fast rund um die Uhr erreichbar. Gut zu wissen, auch wenn es wie in unserem Fall keinerlei Probleme gibt.
We greatly enjoyed our stay in Selçuk at St. Johns Cottage! Menekşe provided a warm welcome - giving us a map of the town, pointing out local attractions, listing possible day trips, and recommending various restaurants. The cottage is in a great location and is walking distance to Selçuk's main street, the train station and bus station, and local sightseeing spots. You also get a great view of Selçuk from the cottage. Menekşe was very accessible whenever we needed anything and really made our stay great! Selçuk is an amazing little town!
Many thanks for your nice review. It was very nice to meet you and your friends. You are all very nice and friendly. It was a pitty that you had a short stay, we couldn't spend any time chatting together. If you ever visit Selçuk it will be a pleasure to welcome you again.
