“Fantastic house”
Reviewed 8 September 2012 for a stay in July 2012

This was our best accommodation in Turkey. The house is located in the Kurdish area of Selcuk toward the top of a hill. Getting around is very easy. One can access the town center on foot in five minutes. The house is beatifully designed with two separate living areas accessed by external stairs. The pool is small but great after a hot day. There is also a very nice outdoor eating area on the roof with wonderful views. Selcuk is a couple of kilometres from Ephesus and within a short drive of many other interesting archeological sites.

“Fabulous house and pool in great location”
Reviewed 6 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We stayed with our two teenage girls at the Stone House for a couple of weeks in July and enjoyed every minute of it. The other reviews are very accurate. We would just add that the house is beautifully appointed and spacious with lots of outdoor areas for enjoying the different times of day: whether watching the morning sun creeping over the minarets & roof tops towards this lovely hillside house, or enjoying the fantastic panoramic view of the neighbouring hill top Byzantine fortress & Basilica, or enjoying the sunset behind a coastal promontory from the dining area on the roof terrace. Selcuk is a charming town untainted by mass tourism. You are more likely to see the locals parking their tractors outside their houses than BMWs. There is more to Selcuk than just the fascinating sights of Ephesus. The Museum is excellent, the Basilica and Temple of Artemis fascinating, the restaurants very good and the Saturday market a great source of local produce. There is also a lot more to the nearby coast than just the lengthy sands of Pamacuk Beach. Alison, who couldn’t have been more helpful, arranged a hire car for us with a driver to collect us from and return us to Izmir airport. Driving is no hassle in this part of Turkey. Having a car gave us the freedom to get to the less well known but truly beautiful and interesting sites such as Aphrodisias, Claros and Priene and the great fish restaurant at Karine recommended by Alison. Herakelia on Lake Bafa also makes a lovely day out. Fully recommended.

“Gorgeous house, wonderful stay!”

Stone House made our stay in Selcuk extra special. The house itself is gorgeous, with lovely furnishings and so many outdoor areas to enjoy in privacy. Even though it was very hot during the day, it was cool enough at night and the rooms ventilated well enough that we didn't even need the air conditioning. And of course it was wonderful having the pool to cool off in after a day exploring the area. A large jug of drinking water and various kitchen basics were provided, as well as bath and swim towels. The internet worked well (though only in the upper bedrooms and on the patio). Alison was incredibly helpful with suggestions and arranging a car service when we needed it. The house is just a short walk from the middle of town with its shops and restaurants and the bus station. Highly recommended!

“Wonderful oasis in 35+ temperature”

We had a great week in the house. Very comfortable everything you need. Alison is very helpful. She picked us up from the train station and drove us to the house. She recommended good restaurants, and activities. The pool was a godsend in the heat. We visited ALL the ruins and would come back to the house to recover. Selcuk is a lovely town and the house has an amazing view. It's 10 minute walk up from the town centre in a real neighbourhood, full of children.

“We loved the house, especially the outdoor patios and terraces that allowed us to take in the sun and the views.”

We stayed at Stone House for four nights. We have three kids age 14, 12, and 7. The house is a lovely, multi-level, traditionally built and decorated home. The master suite is wonderful. There's a full kitchen, but we chose to eat lunch and dinner in town. The town is less than a 10-minute walk and is filled with nice shops and simple, good restaurants. We also arrived with the storks who had built nests on the top of each pillar of the Roman aqueduct. The kids loved it.
