We stayed four days in the house and we really enjoyed our stay!! We spent a lot of time on the nice terrace or at the beach thats just a five minute walk away. The house was perfect for us, comfortable beds and a sunny spacious livingroom. The neighbourhood was very quiet. Elif and her mom made our stay as easy and relaxing as possible, thank you for the hospitality! Only one little little thing, maybe the shower curtain could have been a bit longer.. But other than that it was a very positive experience :)
Nice house in a quiet neighborhood. Thanks Elifs and her moms help during my stay!
We had a very pleasant stay in Cesme in Elifs apartment which suited our needs perfectly. The pictures in the ad seem to be from two apartments that are different so we didn't know which one we were going to get. Ours had three rooms in the top floor with comfortable beds an with fresh linen and towels prepared for us. The bedrooms are quite small - such that it wasn't possible to have the luggage in the room. We had to leave it in the third bedroom (which we didn't use). There was a nice terrace with evening sun and comfortable table and chairs to have breakfast outside, which we really enjoyed. This didn't show in the pictures so it was a very pleasant surprise! The kitchen was well equipped for basic cooking. Overall, the apartment had all we needed but there is little care for detail - especially electrical appliances (to turn on the bathroom light we had to plug in a light, there was no switch, lightbulbs hanging from ceiling, etc.). The location is excellent, close to the highway, to Alacati and Cesme - right in the middle! There's also a supermarket close by.
Communication with Elif by mail was very easy. The mother of Elif has waited for us at 11PM, that was great because we had a complicated travel, she also took us to a close shop to buy some food .Maybe because we arrived late, but she did not explained us about the town itself, just a remark "shops and the sea are on that direction".
The best thing of the house, it is the location. It is 10 minutes walking to a great sandy turquoise beach. Look for Sheraton hotel, and the best beach is there. We found it because a neighbor told us, if not is not very easy to arrive for first time.
The house has a beautiful garden, great to relax after a beach day, with a nice galleria facing the street. The neighborhood is quiet and there are plenty of supermarkets and shops just 5-10 minutes’ walk, and beautiful Alacati downtown is just 10 minutes by dolmus.
There is a big common space (kitchen-dinning-living). The kitchen is ok, but there is not oven or microwave. Good point, there is a washing machine.
In the first floor there are three very tiny bedrooms. Just one of them has a small wardrobe. It can be a bit uncomfortable if you stay several days, having to leave your stuff in a chair or in the suitcase. But, a big applause to the beds: sommiers and mattresses are superb, extremely comfortable, and great to sleep on them.
Blankets were not great, and towels were not enough, there were not things like a towel carpet for the bath and the shower curtain was 20 cm too short, so you made a mess every time you have a shower.
Be careful, the water can be cut for some hours, it happened to us 3 days out of 9. It is not terrible if you know, but as we were not prevented by the owner, the first time it happened we slept all covered in sand. So maybe when you arrive you will see a sanctuary of big plastic bottles, keep them!!! They are useful to keep doors and windows opened and to have showers and flush the toilet.
Internet didn't work the first days but the owner was very diligent and solved the problem. Also, we have a baby, and the owner was very nice getting a baby bed for us.
I recommend the place for families without kids, or with tiny babies (not crawling or walking) or kids over 4 years, because the house can be dangerous for a small kid that does not understand, has stairs not protected, balconies, the galleria is a higher than the garden and they can fall in one second.
Globally, really great location, basic house.
Elif was very easy to get in contact with, and we had no problems getting the keys as soon as we arrived in town. She provided excellent directions to the house, which is in a great, convenient location to the oldest parts of Alacati. Quiet neighborhood, clean residence, good internet and other utilities.
Great location and quiet place. 10 min to Ilica and Alacati. There is a supermarket nearby. The house is clean but bedrooms are small and the kitchen is not well equipped. Overall we enjoyed our stay. Elif was very helpful!
I went to elif's house with my friends for holiday..Its a nice place.. Its clean and big house.. Elif hosted us very well.. The house location is near between ilica and alacati. u can go to alacati or ilica or altinkum in 10 munites by car... Thank you very much Elif.
Ev gayet yeterli, alaçatı merkeze araçla 3-5 dakika, biz çok memnun kaldık kaçırmayın derim :)
We stayed for seven weeks in Elif's house with our 1 y.o. son and enjoyed it very much. Initially we missed some stuff in the house but Elifs mother helped really fast. Elif is a very helpful and kind person. She assisted us in any questions we had.
The house corresponded to our expectations. The only uncomfortable thing for us was the small size of sleeping rooms. With baby bed it was very tightly.
The house is placed in a very quite environment but still not far to main road to Alacati (10 min to surf spot) and to supermarkets.
Sometimes we didn't have water in the house or the water pressure was very low. But it seems to be normal in Turkey.
Overall we would recommend the house. Elif and her mother are very great hosts.
Elif and Ali were wonderful guests. Clean, tidy, considerate and communicative. It was like welcoming good friends into my home. Look forward to having them again!
Elif and Ali were a delight to host. They are both really great people I would welcome back anytime. They were considerate and friendly. Easy to communicate with. I highly recommend hosting them.
I've been staying at Elif's house and it was very comfortable and nice. Elif was very warm and hospital: she introduced me to their friends and we went out together a couple of times. The house is new and very close to the beach. There also a bus stop where you can catch buses for alacati marina(for windsurfing), alacati,cesme city center. There's also a supermarket in the nearby.
The area is very quiet and safe. I really recommend this accommodation.
Elif is being modest by pricing it low. I think this is an opportunity that should not be missed: perfect location (specially when you consider the difficulty of finding any kind of transportation in Çeşme), a beautiful house (clean and comfortable) and a great host ( a fantastic person, who can guide you to find best places depending on your expectations) They are all part of the experience, Enjoy!!! :)
