“Bright and lovely hilltop apartment with amazing views, a short motorbike ride from town.”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2012

We stayed here a week in July 2012 and really enjoyed it. Claire (the owner) was very responsive via email, and Jim (the property manager) was helpful and friendly in person. A few things you should know: - The views of the Aegean are stunningly beautiful, all day long. - The pool is warm, large and not crowded. It does close at 7pm which seems a bit early in summer. - The apartment is large, clean and bright. Air conditioning is outstanding. Kitchen is sufficiently equipped. Some of the furnishings are showing signs of wear, but it wasn't a big deal for us. - The building is located a good couple of miles from the nearest town, at the top of a number of very steep hills. We got a motorbike and would highly recommend it (we got it, with Jim's help, for 175 TL for the week). Without one, you are stuck with walking to the bottom of the hill, waiting for a bus, going to town, then getting another public bus back to the bottom of the hill and climbing up, or taking a taxi back, which is 20TL. If you plan on going to town, which you will, trust us - get a motorbike or car. - Internet in the apartment is spotty and slow at best; works best on the deck, but then only half the time. There are places in town with free fast Internet if you buy a drink or food. - TV is Turkish satellite, with 2 or 3 English stations. - Gulluk is a great town. Not too touristy, lots of locals. A couple of big supermarkets, and plenty of smaller fruit/veg markets. Decent restaurants and bars. - The closest beach to the apartment is a public beach a few minutes away (by motorbike). it is small, and usually fills up with locals before 10 am. The rest of the beaches are in town and also fill up early, but if you go to the edge of town you can get spots well into the afternoon. Overall we had a great experience at this apartment and would highly recommend it if you are seeking a clean, cool, coastal apartment as a home base for some rest and relaxation. The pictures don't do it justice. Our only complaint is that a motorbike or car are pretty much mandatory if you want to go back and forth from town, and we didn't know that until we got there.

“Olive Tree Apartments – is a wonderful place”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2012

Olive Tree Apartments – is a wonderful place, I would go back there in a blink. The apartment itself is located on quite a steep hill, but, as compensation you get absolutely breathtaking view from the master bedroom and the balcony. The apartment is very bright. Luckily, the main windows are facing west (hence the amazing sunsets), so you don’t get the blinding heat/sunshine from the early hours in the morning. Each room is equipped with an air con – which is essential! Master bed is big and comfy with a nice firm mattress – just how I like it. Another positive is we never had to worry about getting a space by the pool, there was always plenty of sun loungers and parasols. The swimming pool is very well kept and the water is always warm. After spending a week at Olive Tree Apartments my advice would be the following: • Rent a car or a scoter – scooters cost approx 25TL per day, or a basic car from approx 60-80TL per day. • Gulluk town centre is not really within walking distance (about 40mins up and down some steep hills). You can always get a minibus from outside Yasemi Market (route Gulluk – Oba Market), it’s 1.5LT per person each way. • Try local – there are lots of nice restaurants in Gulluk, but if you want a really nice, proper Turkish meal then go local. We found a great little place in the centre of Gulluk, just opposite the corner with fruit and veg stalls. I’m sorry I can’t remember the name. This place doesn’t look like much, but they make the tastiest donner kebabs and pide. A lunch for 2 people with soft drinks and tea was 20TL for both of us. They also do take away! • Bodrum – is a must visit. Lots of bars, restaurants, clubs, shops etc. Bodrum is expensive, so make sure you look at prices before you order anything. Our waiter recommended a mixed meze, but we didn’t realize just how big it was going to be. In the end we paid 80TL for what we thought was going to be a quick snack. It was delicious but very overpriced. • Korfez Restaurant in Bodrum – a must visit! http://www.korfezrestaurant.com.tr/index_en.htm - the manager is lovely, the food is delicious. This pace is always full, which is what initially attracted us. 2 restaurants on either side of Korfez were practically empty but Korfez was full. Order a meze to share and catch of the day – you can’t go wrong. • Set Lunch/Dinner – most places in Bodrum will do a set menu for lunch, sometimes dinner (for example 25TL for grilled sea bass/bream + chips/salad + 330ml of Effes Beer). Ask around because they don’t always tell you about the set menu. • Aqua Park Bodrum – most tour operators will sell tickets to Aqua Park (approx £20-25 per person), but you can actually get there yourself very easily and it will be cheaper. You can take a bus from Bodrum main bus stop to Aqua Park (only takes about 10-15mins, cost approx 3-5TL per person). The park opens from 10:30am – 17:30pm. Adult pass for the day costs 42TL (or approx £15). Please note that you are not allowed to bring any food or drinks into the park. They give you special cards which you put credit on and then spend money on overpriced junk food while inside. We actually managed to get a bottle of water and some fruit smuggled. Thankfully we had a big breakfast before we left so we didn’t actually feel the need to eat (especially not the fat dripping chicken nuggets or plastic cheese pizza – yuk!), till we got back to Bodrum. By the way – there’s a free shuttle service back to Bodrum at 17:00pm and 17:30pm. • Take a boat trip – you can do this from Gulluk or Bodrum. We had great fun! For 25-30TL you get lunch, tea and fruit – all included. Very relaxing, cheap and fun way to spend a day. • Turkish Delight – if you want nice stuff and not the soap tasting crap in pre-packed boxes they sell on every corner in Bodrum - then buy it in Gulluk. There’s a guy who sells beautiful Turkish Delight, just ask the fruit and veg stalls guys for “Lukum” and they will take you to the shop. In Bodrum they charge between 30-50TL per kilo for the good “Lukum”. In Gulluk, we paid 3TL for a mixed box (approx about 300-350gm). Also, another good brand of Turkish Delight is “Hazer Baba” - you can get it from the big supermarket in Gulluk (8-9TL per box). • Fruit and Veg – don’t buy in supermarkets - buy it from the stalls in Gulluk (go around the back of the bus stop building). Best apricots and cherries I’ve had in a long while and much cheaper than supermarkets. • Fuego Bar in Gulluk – looks nice, but there’s not much to it. This is a good place to go to for a drink. We had food there and it arrived pretty quickly, but most people we spoke to had to wait literally hours for their meal. So avoid busy times if you’re hungry. The food was nice but nothing special – essentially you pay for the nice furnishings. • People/Language – from experience Turkish people are incredibly friendly and helpful. As an example - we embarked on the journey from the apartments to Gulluk town centre 4 times and 3 out of 4 we had a lift from friendly locals. They take offence if you offer money for a lift and wish nothing but to help you out. Return the favour by learning a few basic phrases in Turkish to show your appreciation, they especially like if you say “Turkia chok guzai” which means “Turkey is very beautiful”; “Teshekkur ederim”- thank you; “Chok lezzetli” – very tasty; “Bun seviyorum” – I like this.
