The apartment and complex are ideal for couples, families with children and golfing groups.
The apartment is in a quiet area of the complex, and with very quick access to all the facilities.

The bedrooms have plentiful storage space for 6 people and the kitchen has more than enough cooking utensils and crockery.

The complex is magnificent, with a large pool surrounded by sun loungers and a separate children's pool.

The floodlit tennis court and indoor air-conditioned gym are useful to fitter guests while the café /bar, pool table and children's indoor play area are popular with others.
There is also free wifi in the apartment (you don't have to rely on the site wifi).
There are many shops and restaurants within a few minutes' walk of the apartment and Side old town, with its archaeological ruins and amphitheatre, is easy to walk to as is the beach. The neighbourhood is clean, quiet and friendly.

|Further details indoors|
After years of renting holiday places with limited storage facilities, not quite enough kitchen ware, and so on, we've equipped our apartment to the level of comfort we prefer.
The living area has two large comfortable sofas, both of which convert into beds. It also has a DVD/CD player and a TV which receives UK, German and French satellite channels.
The dining area has a large table and 6 chairs.
The kitchen is extremely well equipped, so you can cook for yourselves with ease if you don't feel like eating out all the time.
The main bedroom has a king sized bed, the other has twin beds. Both bedrooms have wardrobes, drawer units, bedside tables and lamps, large mirrors and so on.
The bedding and towels are all of good quality and in colours in keeping with the decor of the apartment. There are beach towels for your use in addition to bathroom towels.
Both the en-suite bathroom and the main bathroom have washbasin, shower and wc; and the main bathroom has a large corner Jacuzzi bath too!
Both bedrooms and the living room are heated and air-conditioned.
The complex has free wifi, but access can be difficult when everyone else is using it. So we have put our own wifi in the apartment - so you can be sure to stay in touch (if you want to, of course).
|Further details outdoors|
The complex is beautifully landscaped with an unusual amount of open space and mature trees, flower beds, lawns, fountains and statues.
You can sunbathe around the pools, on the roof terraces or on the apartment's private terraces - or go to the beach of course.
The swimming pool is large enough to swim in, as well as to relax or play in. There is no cost for the use of the loungers and parasols.
There's a wide range of activities in the complex including: floodlit tennis court, well-equipped gym, pool table, table tennis, indoor play area for small children and a cafe/bar.
You can book excursions with pick-up from the complex: including Aquapark, boat trips, jeep safari, archaelogical ruins, city centre shopping trips and so on.
English speaking representatives are available 24 hours a day.
Cafe/bar on-site in season.
Free shuttle bus to beach (only short walk, but in really hot weather is great to have transport).

The coast around Side has long sandy beaches, crystal blue seas and picturesque harbours. The beach has been awarded the prestigious blue flag by the EU and the several mile long stretch is renowned for its clear water. Moving further along the coast in both directions you’ll also find areas where the cliffs tumble into the sea, many pretty villages and the archaeological remains of classical cities. Behind the coast are areas of lush vegetation and also the Taurus mountains where in the winter months you can reach ski slopes within an hour and a half.
You can book many excursions leaving from Side including white water rafting, horse riding, scuba diving, boat trips, fishing, and jeep safaris. If you hire a car it’s easy and safe to drive and explore on your own. You can also play golf at one of the 6 championship golf courses only 30 minutes drive away (tee times bookable from the UK).
Side (pronounced See-day) dates back to the Roman Empire when it was a very important trading port, and a trysting place of Anthony and Cleopatra. The archaeological remains are much in evidence, and very accessible. Side's beautiful well preserved amphitheatre is still used for concerts during the summer months, with a music festival taking place during the month of September.
There’s easy access to two long sandy beaches where you can enjoy the many water-based activities from pedaloes to parasailing, lounge on the beach or sit in a beachside café and watch the world go by.
Holidaying in Side is easy and comfortable. The people are friendly and hospitable and almost everyone speaks enough English. There are pavement cafes and chic restaurants; colourful markets selling exotic wares and spices and convenience stores for day to day necessities. Here is all the mystery of the East with the reliability and familiarity of Europe.

"Excellent apartment, fully recommended"
This is a lovely apartment, well furnished and well situated on the excellent Oasis complex. On the first floor, it's easily accessible and quiet, however this doesn't take anything away from the convivial atmosphere of the complex as the large balcony looks directly out on to the swimming pool. The entire Oasis Residence has 24 hour security and in the 3 years that we have stayed there we have never once felt anything but 100% safe.
The apartment was spotlessly clean when we arrived and it is serviced locally by an ex-pat British family concern who are absolutely excellent. The Owner, Jacqui, has always been first class to deal with and nothing has been too much trouble.
Oasis is only a few minutes walk from the many restaurants and bars in the Kemer district of Side, and also of course the Dolmus bus service which allows quick access to and from the Antique town of Side itself.
I would recommend this as a great place for a family holiday at a reasonable price and in a lovely part of the world.

"a home away from home - but with a better climate :-)"
We stayed in the appartment for two weeks during Easter holidays. We arrived during a downpour, but the security staff met us from our pre-booked airport pick-up (thanks Jacqui) equipped with umbrellas, and carried our very heavy suitcases up to the appartment while we carried our two exhausted and sleeping children.
The appartment was exactly as advertised - with really useful kitchen appliances - microwave, kettle, toaster, etc. Could have done with a coffee machine and a dishwasher, but having a washing machine was invaluable. And the jacuzzi - well, I've never seen the kids so keen to go into the bath!
Drying clothes was difficult since the sun never came onto the balcony where the drying rack was, but the small balcony outside the bedroom got the sun most of the day, and we hung up a drying line that we found in a little local shop for 1 Lire - so that did the trick!
The weather was generally good, with a couple of cold overcast and rainy days, but mainly around 20-23°C. The outdoor pools were too cold to swim in (at least for the kids) so we were very pleased to see that the indoor pool was a) open, and b) heated.
The appartment is very well located - although on the first couple of days, we felt it was a bit far from everywhere, but once you start finding your way around and see how built up the beach area is, we were actually quite pleased to be set back from the noisy and touristy area. The main shopping street with lilttle supermarkets, restaurants and dolmus pickup were literally only 10 minutes walk. We took the Dolmus to Manavgat waterfall, and booked some nice day trips to Antalya and Alanya (the latter trip was great for the kids - visit to the banana plantations, derelict castle, underground caves, pirate boat trip). But you need to barter, barter, barter, that's the fun part :-)
The food and drink is the best part of Turkey of course, all those wonderful grilled vegetables, baked aubergines with lamb, stuffed peppers, yummy, and the turkish coffee and ayran drinks. Not worth slaving over a hot stove - restaurants are so cheap if you look around and see where the locals are eating.
So a great holiday - and the perfect appartment! Definitely recommded!

"Excellent apartment in the historical town of Side"
We stayed at this apartment for 8 days in August. It is a large apartment, very clean and has everything you need to enjoy your stay. The complex has a lovely swimming pool, gym and is very quiet and relaxing. It also has 24 hour security. The staff at the Oasis complex are all very helpful and we also arranged transfers to and from the airport without any problems.
There are several bars, restaurants and supermarkets within walking distance. I do think the apartment would suit people who are quite active as it is a fair walk to the historical part of Side and the beach. We would not hesitate to book this apartment again if we were to return to Side in the future.

"Beautiful, well appointed appartment in lovely development. Lots to see and do in the area."
We rented this appartment for 3 weeks and it was a comfortable home from home. The airport pick up and reception at the property worked smoothly. The appartment is lovely, furnished to a high standard. The pool area was lovely and the whole complex was immaculate. The staff were friendly and helpful.
The old town of Side is beautiful - about 15TL in a taxi to get there. We ate in local restaurants most evenings and went into the old town a couple of times a week. There is plenty to do and see in the area if you can tear yourself away from the pool and there is a free bus service to the beach. We hired a jeep for a few days and toured the area and went on a number of trips. There's plenty of places we didn't manage to visit and others that we want to revisit, so we will be back.
All in all, this was a wonderful holiday in a great appartment. The renter and staff at Oasis were friendly and very helpful and I give them my full recommendation.
