My mother and I recently stayed at the beautiful apartment in the heart of Selcuk. Alison was very helpful and kind - meeting us in the town centre so that we would not get lost trying to find the house. The building is up on the steep hillside of the town which means that there is a lovely breeze to keep you cool at night and the most incredible views all the way down to the coast. The patio dining and pool areas are designed with impeccable taste and the architecture makes the most of the tiny plot it is built on. The inside equals the outside - lovely modern kitchen and unusual features. The high spec bathroom is also a great bonus. There is a parking space next to the house too for those of you who would prefer to drive. Ephesus was a great day out and there is pleanty of shopping to do in the town too. We bought jewellery and lamps which it turns out are far cheaper here than in Istanbul. We wished we had bought more there and shipped it back! I will be recommending this apartment to my friends and family for future visits. Many thanks alison, R& J
Thank you so much for the trouble you have taken to write this very nice, positive and useful review. Would be lovely if you would be able to retun and enjoy some more of the sites in the area.
Can't wait to visit the new Tate with you both in mind...

“Comfortable, relaxing , perfect!”

We spent a very pleasant, relaxing week at Ionia House in mid June. The weather became quite hot later in the week, but the air con did a great job keeping us cool!
Alison arranged every detail for us, including a lift from the airport, food and wine in the fridge and good advice on interesting trips out and good places to eat.
Ionia house is a very clean well designed and comfortable converted old town house. The pool was very clean and inviting, the terrace was private and we were surrounded with beautiful flowers and interesting artefacts.
We have visited Turkey several times before, but this is definitely the best place we have stayed!
We hope to return in a few years to visit all the other interesting places in the area, we will visit Ionia again!
Thank you Hilary for your fantastic review, So glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you can make if out again soon, say hi to Perry,
Until next time,

Out of all of our vacation rentals we have rented, Ionia House was one of our favorites! We didn't want to leave. Alison was so pleasant to work with--she was very prompt with replies about our enquiries, was at the house to greet us upon our arrival, and so easy going about everything! She arranged our airport transfers and our one day car rental for our day trip to Pamukkale, which we highly recommend! Alison is easily accessible with her office right in town. The house itself is fantastic--great location, nice and clean, large bathroom, comfortable beds, fully equipped kitchen (bottled water cooler was a great benefit as we didn't have to carry home water bottles everyday), great air circulation with the windows open (didn't have to use the aC during our visit), beautiful pool with terraces with a fabulous view. We had a wonderful breakfast every morning outside on the front terrace. Another nice benefit is the washing machine with clothes line that can be put up on the terrace for easy outdoor drying. Another great benefit of the location is the Hotel Rilican across the street--on the evening we arrived we were too tired to go into town and they let us in for dinner (not sure if it is open to the public or just for hotel guests) and on our departure they served us at a specific time to accommodate us. The food was the best we had in Selcuk and the family that owns the hotel couldn't have been nicer and more friendly! Overall we highly recommend Ionia House (loved everything about it) or any of the other rentals managed by alison--she was an absolute delight to work with. If we are ever fortunate enough to return to Selcuk, we would definitely rent from alison again!
Thank you for your fantastic review and taking the time to write about your stay.
Was lovely to have met you all and hopefully you will be able to visit again.
All the best and good wishes to you all,
Madeline and Ibrahim

When we stepped into Ionia House we felt like we were home. Not only did it have all the comforts of home but it captured the history of the Selcuk area as well. The attention to detail throughout the house was immaculate. So many positives...the spectacular view, comfortable beds, amazing shower, well equipped kitchen, great pool and relaxing outdoor area with a wood fire. We were an easy walk from the centre of town, local markets, buses and taxis. Alison was a superb hostess who helped with anything and everything, whenever we needed it. From airport transfers to restaurant recommendations, Alison was always happy to help.
This house was great to stay in with our three young children. It was a very quiet part of town and we felt safe and secure throughout our stay.
We would highly recommende Ionia house to anyone who is travelling to Selcuk.
