We stayed at the Kiwi Pension for three nights in August. The owner Alison is very friendly and helpful and it was refreshing to see a native English speaker who is also fluent in Turkish. The pension is in a good location in a quiet residential area and from there it is a very short walk into Selcuk town. Our room was upstairs and had a balcony looking out onto the street. The room was very clean with our own bathroom and we had a small fridge which was very helpful for keeping our water cool.
The other staff at the pension were very friendly including the young man that served us breakfast and the housekeeper returned our laundered clothes very promptly and immaculately.
The swimming pool is located a few kilometres away from the pension, on the road to Ephesus. As we had a car, we were able to drive there.
Alison is very knowledgable about Selcuk and the surrounding area. She recommended some great restaurants including the Selcuk Koftecesi which we visited on three occasions (the kofte is one of the best we have tried). We really enjoyed Selcuk and from our base at the Kiwi Pension, we were able to do some great day trips including a visit to the beautiful Dilek Peninsula (which is wonderful for swimming).
We would definitely recommend staying at the Kiwi Pension and it is a great base for exploring the local area.
