"Great Family run Villa"
We stayed in the apartment on the top floor of the property in April May of 2013. We were only supposed to stay a month, but ended up staying nearly two. The villa is owned and managed by Fiona and Mary who will look after your every need. The apartment is spacious and has everything you need during your stay. The place is equipped with every pot pan and utensil you need if you fancy doing a bit of cooking with the wonderful produce bought from the local markets.
It is a ten minute walk to Calis beach or you can hop a dolmus and be there in a few minutes, The Dolmus to Fethiye run very close and for 2 lira you can be in Fethiye in a little over ten minutes, There are loads of good cheap restaurants and cafes near to the villa so if you cant be bothered cooking you can eat well. The hotel adjacent will let you use their beautiful pool if you eat or drink there. Unlike many villas in an around fethiye you get the chance here to see some of the turkish local life and if you are lucky will get to witness a traditional turkish wedding at the nearby square.
There is a local shop just metres from the apartment to get your daily bread and last minute supplies and loads of supermarkets within walking distance.
If you want to get a bus to other places in Turkey they all pass by the local village where you pick the bus up instead of going to the station in Fethiye.
The wifi is fast and good and free!! We would definitely be back
A pleasure to have you stay and you would be most welcome back to stay any day.

"Excellent value for money, charming, location good."
My husband and I along with 2 friends spent a wonderful week of relaxation, exploration and fun in a superb apartment which offered everything we needed or wanted and more. The apartment is very spacious, clean, well maintained and decorated tastefully - a lovely home from home feeling. Fiona and Mary were fantastic hosts who couldn't do enough to help or advise. It was such a friendly place to stay that we wished we had booked a further week. The location is ideal - only a hop, skip and jump to the Sunday market, shops, bars and restaurants. Gunlukbasi offers charm - there's no doubt about that. We spent many a day just walking and exploring but always caught the Dolmus back home. We never had to wait long before one came along. Calis is not far and again, we enjoyed the sunsets and evening meals on offer (Turkish and English) and we particularly liked a Turkish restaurant/bar called George's Bar. We thought we might miss a pool on site but we didn't as the hotel pool is only a few paces away and we would enjoy a few drinks, do some reading and snoozing and generally chill out. We just cannot believe what good value the holiday was and are so glad we didn't go for an all inclusive hotel stay as you just do not sample the real Turkey somehow. We had several trips into Fethiye and the surrounding area and Fiona and Mary certainly have a good knowledge of where to go and what to do. The apartment is great if you want to take a group of friends but also great for families. We couldn't wait to try the cottage so booked up for just the 2 of us.
Thank you for your comments about your stay in Gunluk house.i would be delighted if you came to stay again and would also like to say Gunluk house has been fully renovated since your last stay so it is even better now.Please have a look at the new work on holiday lettings.

"Made to feel like one of the family"
This was the first time we have visited Turkey and must admit we were a bit apprehensive at what it would be like. No need to worry!! Fiona and Mary we so helpful- they were able to show us where to find markets , shops, restaurants, beaches and buses. The house was perfect. It was bright, spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped . We had free use of not only two balconies but also a patio with sun loungers. The hotel opposite was available to us to use at any time for the price of a beer. Here too the staff were so friendly and cheerful. We loved the village atmosphere being away from late discos but a 5 minute bus ride took you to Calis beach or a 10 minute ride took you into the bright lights of Fethyia. Our greatest praise however has to go to Fiona and her mum Mary. We grew to love them very much. In fact speaking with Mary was like having my own mum back. Thank you Mary. Mx
I enjoyed looking after everyone, so they had a great holiday,that is important especially as it was their first time in Turkey.I think it is a great bonus to the guests if they have someone on hand to recommend restaurants things to see and do,or any other help if required.This family were also very kind to us in alot of ways.The house was left clean tidy and i had very little work to do after their departure.I hope they enjoyed their stay here and will return for more adventures.

"Excellent value for money"
Light, spacious and very comfortable accommodation with everything we could possibly need, especially air conditioning even in October. Furnishings and fittings of high quality. English speaking owner lives on site and was attentive and helpful with information regarding the village, surrounding area and tourist attractions. Bars and restaurants close by offering traditional Turkish food. No pool but there are hotels close by who are happy for you to use their facilities and it is only a short bus ride to Calais Beach.
House left in excellent condition,would welcome their return.
