“Repeat performance”
Reviewed August 25, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed here a second time as we loved it so much the first!
An extremely beautiful place to stay-comfortable, well appointed and beautiful views of Selcuk.
We were well looked after by Alison and loved our refreshing swims in the pool.
Also it was great to be able to prepare our own food occasionally using the produce from Selcuk market. Delicious!
All in all, a fab place to stay!

“Amazing Ionia House”
Reviewed August 23, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We recently did n 12 day trip travelling through Turkey and on our itinerary was Ephesus in Selcuk. we booked Ionia house and was blown away at the comfort and amenities it had to offer!! Alison made us feel all very welcome and was kind enough to inform us where all the main points were (grocery store, pharmacy, doctor and the tourist attractions). The house is equipped with 2 spacious bedrooms with extremely comfortable beds! Lovely bathroom outlay with good sized shower. A/C in all main rooms as well as a well equipped kitchen with dishwasher and gas stove. the highlight for us was the lovely pool and fireplace on the patio which we enjoyed on our very first night by having a BBQ! The outside looks beautiful at night with all the lights on and we all decided that if ever in the area again, we will be staying at Ionia House!!! The house comes with all linen, towels etc. Alison, you did a great job on this house and was amazing to see the transformation in the photo album!

“Gorgeous house, brilliant private pool, very helpful owner!”
Reviewed August 11, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We arrived here midway through our 3 week trip touring Turkey and were delighted with our choice. From initial booking with Alison, right through to our stay, was excellent. The house itself was spotlessly clean, with very comfortable beds, gorgeous views and a brilliant pool! As we were touring Turkey having a washing machine was fantastic midway through our trip. Selcuk itself was one of our favourite places during our trip, great restaurants (such as Ejder Restaurant, recommended by Alison) - every meal we had was amazing, and you have to visit Ceisus Ceramic, also recommended by Alison and definitely worth the recommendation - I now have a gorgeous new set of dinner plates, side plates, cereal bowls etc etc!!! All packaged brilliantly (with free bags!) for our return trip!!! Anyway if you are considering staying here, don't hesitate, book immediately! I hope to return sometime soon! And a visit to the nearby hilltop village of Sirince is a must!

“Great stay in Selcuk”
Reviewed July 23, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This was a great place for two couples to stay during a short trip to the Ephesus area. We liked staying in Selcuk because it was close to the Ephesus ancient site and easy to get around for exploring the coast. The house has been recently renovated. The beds were good, bathroom nice, kitchen well equipped. There are views of the city and the fortress from the living room. The outside area was great with a pool, garden, a fireplace and ample seating for outdoor dining. Loved meeting and working with Alison. She met us at the house on our first day and helped us plan our stay. She provided additional travel services for us at a reasonable cost - airport pickup, taxi to Ephesus, ferry tickets, car rental etc. The house is slightly uphill from the town center - but all of Greece and Turkey was hilly on this trip. We own and manage several rental properties in the US so we are very picky about where we stay. Alison has done a great job to make sure her guests have a good experience.

“Nicest Vacation Rental we have stayed!”
Reviewed April 25, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Our family of 5 had a wonderful stay in Ionia House for 4 nights in Dec last year. (This review is late as I had some difficulty getting it re-posted after making a correction).

Alison is a very nice landlady and her response to our emails was prompt and helpful right from the start. Location is great, near the train station and the main street where you can find plenty of restaurants.
The house is one of the nicest vacation rental we have stayed so far. It is clean, comfortable, new, elegant and with good taste. Alison has provided everything you would need in a home......and above. There is a Bose ipod speaker which my children enjoyed, slippers for all if you need, plenty of towels etc. Her kitchen is fully equipped with all the utensils (very detailed) to cook a proper meal.

The patio and the swimming pool area are also immaculately kept. We would have loved to spend more time outside if not for the winter weather.

It was really lovely to return to the nice, warm and cozy place after a day of sight seeing. Ionia House has indeed made our visit to Selcuk a very enjoyable and memorable one. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to my friends or anyone visiting Selcuk. I would look for Alison again should I come back.

Thank you, Alison!

“Very relaxing. Awesome view.”
Reviewed April 12, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We loved waking up every morning, looking out the windows and seeing the spectacular view of Selcuk Castle.
Alison was very responsive to all of our inquiries both before and after arrival. She takes care of things and we appreciate that when we are renting a vacation home.
The house is up the hill from the city center... so a little walk from the main attractions. This is not a problem for us because we like walking and experiencing the more non-touristy aspects of cities. We enjoyed the design of the house and the newness of everything. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils, etc. It may seem petty (and it is!), but we really wish that shampoo had been provided. We try to travel very light... and appreciate the hotel basics being provided when we rent a vacation home. Fresh cut flowers were in the bedroom... a very nice touch! Also... some tasty items were provided in the refrigerator. The home is a wonderful place to relax... very comfortable. It was not warm enough for us to enjoy a swim in the pool... but it certainly looked inviting.
If you like riding public transportation, we highly recommend the mini buses that travel to many places in the area. We found them to be efficient and a wonderful way to ride around with the local people.
