“We could not have asked for a better place to stay”
Reviewed September 13, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Ionia house was absolutely perfect for mine and my friends one week stay! The house is beautiful with everything you need provided. The pool area is especially nice with a lovely high up stone seating area that looks out over the stunning view of Selcuk - particularly beautiful as the sun sets. The house is in a great location being a five minute walk away from town but still far away enough to be peaceful and quiet. Alison was the perfect host, welcoming us in and showing us all we needed to know as well as informing us of the best places to shop and eat in Selcuk. We took her suggestions and were never disappointed. If we ever had any questions or queries she was always very helpful. Selcuk itself is a lovely town. It is small enough to feel homely and safe yet has great connections which meant we could reach any sites we wished to visit. There are lovely restaurants and the people are all very friendly. I would especially recommend going for the Saturday market where the whole centre of town becomes lively with market stalls where you can buy almost anything. Overall we had a brilliant stay and thank you so much Alison for all of your help!!

Ideal place for a relaxing holiday

“What A Gem!”
Reviewed October 3, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed at Ionia House for 10 days in September and loved every minute. Alison, the owner, has created a lovely holiday home where every little thing has been considered - from the thoughtful design of the garden to the good quality of the house's interior. Every night we watched the sun go down with a drink from the gardens top terrace - perfect. The house is at the top of the town so has great views but it is only a short walk into town - we enjoyed the walk as it gave us some exercise coming back up the hill each day. The hill is very managable unless you have real mobilty problems. Selcuk itself is a lovely town with plenty of restaurants - the fabulous Saturday market and all the supermarkets make it very easy to self-cater here and the bus service will take you almost anywhere you want to go. Alison was the perfect hostess - making sure we were comfortable and offering to get supplies in before we arrived. She was even able to look up a good day to visit Ephesus when there were no cruise ships coming in. We would highly recommend a stay in Ionia House!

“Absolutely relaxed and a great sunset”
Reviewed August 26, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

After a (short) journey from Holland to Selcuk we arrived at Ionia House. Alison showed the house and gave advise about what we could do. Everything was clean and the house invited us to relax. After taking a lovely shower (there is a rain shower in the bathroom) we relaxed on the terrace. After dinner, we dived into the swimming pool and enjoyed the fantastic sunset.
In and around Selcuk there are a lot of thinks to do. You can go out for dinner, go to the beach, or go to Efes. We definitely coming back!

“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!
