The apartment was very clean and newly refurbished and the location was perfect, just 100 meters from the beach. The gardens surrounding the area are very well kept and the whole atmosphere was very relaxing. There are several bars and restaurants nearby and a local bus service can get you around the city. Proximity to the airport is a plus although the noise from inbound planes can annoy some people, we were ok with it.
We had a rental car so the place was easy to find from the airport, but otherwise don't know how you would get there with public transit. Ask beforehand. Host does not speak English very well. Would recommend for bi-lingual travelers.
There was confusion about our arrival time. We had been in touch with the host but he wasn't immediately available when we arrived at night. Fortunately, there's a very friendly beach cafe/restaurant right across the street where we could use the phone and get good help in English/Turkish.
We recommend this place only for the adventurous. The (huge) apartment is pretty bare -- like camping in a condo or staying in an abandoned cabin. No frills. No heat/hot water. No toilet paper. It does have beds, sheets/blankets, couches, and the kitchen has all its appliances which presumably work but they were all unplugged when we were there. There's 2 bedrooms; one has three single beds in it, making the apartment really great for a big family on vacation.
The view is spectacular! It's right on the beach away from the busy city. We were there in winter so we're not sure what it might be like in summer (busy vs quiet??). The balcony is comparable in size to the living room: very big! :) We stood on the balcony for a while and every person that walked by waved and said hello. Someone even asked us from the street if we were going to buy the place.
The host is trying to sell the apartment and will ask if you're interested. The restaurant across the street is your best bet for getting advice on where to go and what to see/do, though the waiters speak only a tiny bit of English.
