The bars and restaurants of the old village are also very close. There are plenty of water sports available at the beach which is just a gentle 10 minute stroll away.
The apartment benefits from a shared pool and a spacious garden which is equipped with a barbecue, picnic bench, children's see-saw and swings.

“Comfortable, spacious, peaceful and well located”
First of all I have to say how helpful and responsive the owner, Graham, was providing comprehensive information before our stay. I booked the airport transfer separately but the company liaised with Abdul (Graham's local representative) directly so that when I arrived at the property 30 minutes ahead of schedule Abdul arrived to greet me promptly. In summary my arrival and departure were seamless and stress free. The apartment itself is large and well laid out. The kitchen is well equipped and has excellent amenities. All of the furniture is comfortable and the wardrobe/cupboard space is more than adequate.The patio leads straight out into the garden and the ground floor toilet is a bonus. I enjoy a hot shower whatever the weather and the shower was very powerful with an endless supply of hot water. The sun shines on the apartment all day long and it is lovely to have the option of the side balcony or the patio area to sit out and dine. The gardens are beautifully maintained and we had the swimming pool to ourselves almost very day. For me, the location was perfect. Really quiet with wonderful views of the mountains whilst the main square is a mere 10 minute stroll away. There are also numerous shops, restaurants and supermarkets within a 5 minute radius on foot. For beach and sea lovers the large sandy beach is a 15 minute walk where you can take boat trips and eat at a large selection of restaurants overlooking the stunning bay. Quite simply - bliss.
What a lovely apartment. Clean with all amenities you could need. It's on the pool level making it easy to supervise the kids in the water. Plenty of storage, including long hanging space for dre… More

“A dissapointing stay in this apartment”
Our family holiday was spoilt by our stay in this apartment which we feel is in need of refurbishment. The boiler broke 3 days into our holiday which left us without hot water for 4 days. This was eve… More
Owner's reply: The problem with the boiler was unfortunate but completely unforeseen. Repair was delayed by two days as the guest attempted to contact our representative but misdialled. Our representative therefore only became aware of the problem when she called in on a routine visit to see if all was ok. The faulty part was ordered and fitted in two days (as it would be in the UK) Meanwhile the guests were offered alternative showering facilities. Regarding the other "problems", our apartment is kept in excellent condition and in fact we spent a week in April this year painting it, carrying out minor repairs and purchasing new sunbeds (we have more sunbeds than any other apartment on the complex), patio chairs, dining chairs, bedside lights, floor and table lamps for the lounge. We also called in to the apartment in July to check it out and bought some new towels. The only part of the apartment which has marked walls is down the stairs where guests tend to catch the walls with their suitcases. Personally we empty our cases upstairs and take our clothes downstairs to avoid this. We cannot paint the walls after each guests leave, it gets done during the winter. The mattress in question has been acceptable for all other guests, some people like a firm mattress, others a soft one. We cannot predict this or indeed cater for it. It is a personal choice and so remains as is. The sheets with the hole in were never found, there are plenty of them so if the guests aren't happy with the linen it can be changed easily. The guests complained about there being a mosquito in the apartment which, although is not our responsibility, we decided to fit nets to the downstairs windows. This will allow us to leave the windows open when the apartment is empty and so air the downstairs rooms, preventing any (so called) damp smell. When the complaint (and request for compensation) was received we said that we would visit the apartment to check things out and contact them with our findings on our return. This review was posted while we were over there and so had no chance to sort things out amicably. We subsequently sent the guest a cheque for the inconvenience due to the boiler ONLY as we didn't think that the other "problems" we're substantiated.
We have just returned from a two week stay in this property and everything was perfect. It is based in a small well maintained complex containing just eight apartments (two blocks of four) and this one definitely has the best location. In the morning you can sit on the side balcony and watch the sun come up over the mountains, by mid-morning it is in the shade and provides a welcome spot to cool down and take break from the sun if it becomes too hot for you on the main balcony/pool area. The location is very quiet and peaceful despite being only a few minutes walk from the main bars, restaurants and shopping area. The town of Icmeler has a policy that prevents loud music being played after midnight and this is strictly enforced by the local police. If you want to stay out longer, the bars remain open after this time and we've made some great friends over the years, both staff and fellow tourists, during this quiet time where you get a chance to talk to each other without music. I agree with all the positive comments made in the two previous reviews, the apartment is lovely, Pat and Gary who represent the owners could not have been more helpful, for Turkish cuisine Nefis Pide is great, The Waterfall has the best location and wonderful food (if you like hot curries try their Lamb/Chicken Madras – it’s delicious, full of fresh chillies and not for the faint-hearted). We have been to Icmeler three times, this year was our first stay in this apartment we have already booked it again for next year.
We have always rented an appartment whenever we go to Turkey- and we found this one to be the best. Graham, the owner was great- everything went very smoothly, from booking the appartment to organising our taxi pick up at Dalaman airport It is very well equiped and the pool area is fantastic. The pool is a deacent size and was very quiet and private- which we liked. The main selling point is easy access from the appartment to the pool via the living room doors- no stairs! and we felt very secure in the appartment- even though it is on the ground floor. The area is great- lots of good quality restaurants and shops, we found Bob at the Robin Hood bar on the corner to be particularly helpful- giving us lots of hints and tips about the area Icmeler is a fantastic area- its a cut above marmaris! Would 100% reccommend this appartment to others- you wont be disappointed.
My wife, twelve ear old son and myself had a wonderful two week stay at Lal Residence in Icmeler. The Apartment was in good conditon, had all the bedding, cutlery, utensils and crockery we needed and more. We where met on arrival by Gary, and later Pat, who represent the owners localy. We were given contact numbers for all eventualities and advised wherever necessary. The pool was cleaned daily as was the garden, and we found that other people staying where good company too. The apartment is situated 5 minutes walk the town center and 8 minutes walk from the pristine beach. Nearest shops and bars are a two minute walk. Icmeler itself is lovley and has everything you might want form quiet areas to nighlife. The very best restaurants we found were Nefis Pide which is a traditional Turkish restaurant and take away oppen 24 hrs a day and frequented by more loclas than tourists. We found this such a good place to eat we ate there 8 night out of 13! It should be noted that it is also very good vale for money, and also does pizzas, though Lachmacun is better! We also like the Love Boat restaurant though avoid the salmon (a bad choice on reflection, a cold water fish in a Turkish town and it was frozen!) However the steak was fantatstic as was the starters of Boregi and chicken wings. Very good wine list too. The Waterfall (recommended by Graham the owner) was another good restaurant. All the local bars are staffed by friendly keen people glad of your business and willing to help wherever possible. My son made fast friends with the staff of the Robin Hood bar and would eat lunch with the staff most days. When he got an infection of the ear the staff drove around town in the evening to find a chemist open and bought him eardrops and tablets. Recommended tours...any boat trip especially seven Islands trip, Turtle Beach trip. Quad safari is a must for all kids tall enough to drive a Beach Buggy or quad bike, or accompanied by an adult. A full range of water sports is available and we did most of them. Prices standard throughout the town generally but we found the No Name agency near the beach promenade best for trips. From point of booking we found the owners extremely helpful and would take this opportunity to thank them. Book with confidence and I assure you you will enjoy!
