Very Good

“Idyllic cottage in lovely rustic setting”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2013

Dates of Stay: 3 wks from 25/6 to 16/7/13 Olive Cottage is a fabulous little place in its own garden complete with splash pool, garden furniture, and BBQ, lying almost midway between the old village to the north and the beach (and main tourist area) to the south. Access to both is via a dry, pebbly river bed so forget smart footwear! We stayed 3 weeks and hired a 125cc motorbike from Bodrum to get us back and forth which enabled us to use the tarmac road, though underground pipe-laying meant diversions were in place, and to explore immediate surroundings. Shopping: We shopped with the Turks in the old village which is virtually tourist-free! My limited Turkish greatly assisted and was much appreciated. In addition to various supermarkets, there's a little bakery, two excellent butchers (keşap) where we bought hot grilled chickens and superb meat for the barbecue, an ice-cream parlour offering lots of different flavours and if you sit at a table and have it in a glass bowl it comes with some fresh water for afterwards, and a great delicatessen selling a range of delicious mezzes. Every Thursday, we'd go to the weekly farmers' market up by the mosque to stock up on fruit, veg, stuffed vine leaves, bőrek, and a large filo pastry filled with aubergine and tomato which I later heated in the microwave; and on Sundays, there's a textile and general market. Beaches: Crowded with sunbeds very close together in places! All are free if you buy drinks and food. . Golo Beach at far end (west on Liz’s map) - shallow water, lovely sultan tents on grass area but constant thumping of too loud music annoying and beach littered with cigarette butts. Bitez Han (next door) - much better furthest away from Golo - we had our best lunches here; pasta, pizza, bacon burgers stuffed full of prime quality bacon, and chips were consistently excellent. Ambrosia at opposite end (east on Liz’s map) - also good, deeper water and sunbeds have pillows. Sarniç Beach Club (on hillside past Golo) - no beach but jetty into lovely clear deep water, top-notch sunbeds, great food and cocktails; great lounge music till 4PM then resident DJ, frequented by rich and famous Turks and open daily from 9AM-midnight. The BBQ worked really well and we enjoyed the tastiest, most succulent food ever! In fact, we were spoilt by eating in and on the 4 occasions we did eat out, I was disappointed with the unimaginative piles of shredded lettuce, raw or pickled red cabbage, raw grated carrots and raw onions the dishes were served with which were much too dry and plain for my liking. Tip: if you're walking back along the dry river bed at night, make sure to take a torch (there's one in the cottage) as it's pitch black in places. Alternatively, ask a taxi to take you back to Sera Sok. Liz and Ahmet are darlings and both constantly busy. They’re helpful and there if you need them, but are otherwise unobtrusive. Ahmet runs a daily boat trip (not Mondays) on his beloved Kelebek II stopping at 5 different bays for a max of 8 passengers which is recommended. A delicious lunch, provided by Liz, is included and consists of cold meats, salad, a lovely potato salad, and bread followed by an assortment of fresh fruit. It's worth mentioning that the welcome pack put assembled by Liz is the best we've ever had and includes a jar each of homemade spiced chutney and marmalade, as well as eggs from their own chickens, 5 of which roam freely around the property. The speckled one is particularly friendly and likes to come into the garden, as do Muffin and Oscar (the dogs) when they get the chance! We loved seeing them. Clean towels and linen are provided twice a week by Liz. She’s a very busy lady! We loved staying in Olive Cottage listening to the cockerels crowing, hens clucking, squirrels chattering, and cicadas singing which was sometimes deafening!

“Quiet, peaceful great place to chill out”

Reviewed 4 Nov 2012

We have stayed at this cottage many times the last being September this year. Liz and Ahmet are excellent hosts nothing is too much trouble for them. They will arrange a private transfer from the airport and when you arrive everything you need is there including water and beach towels.Unpack your cases and relax. Our days were split between lazing in the beautiful garden and trips to the beach which is a pleasant 20 minute stroll along the dry river bed. Bodrum is easily accessible by catching a dolmus from the village and from there you are able to explore the whole of the peninsula. If we went out in the evening we just asked a taxi to drop us at the end of the lane.Some restuarants even gave us a lift home! Liz and Ahmet also operate boat trips which are excellent- a quiet chilled day at sea with a picnic lunch far away from the Disco boats. We would recommend Olive Cottage to anyone it truly is a little bit of paradise in an area of Bitez few get to appreciate.
