Doga Apartments
Ranked #30 of 136 Specialty Lodging in Fethiye
Reviewed October 1, 2013

I can't believe we found this place 24 hours before leaving for Turkey! I had been to the beautiful village of Kayakoy before and didn't really see any hotels or apartments, but that's because they are set back from the main road, therefore incredibly tranquil and sheltered. As others have said in their reviews, a peaceful oasis of calm! This is because it is a protected heritage site. So no carefree building. Incredible hospitality, perfect food and surroundings, clean, modern facilities yet with traditional village feel. It was also an absolute joy to find some of the best restaurants located in the village too! I've been to Turkey many times, and a couple of them are the best I've been to. All walking distance naturally! Also, there is the Dolmus bus which can take you further along to the best beach in the area called 'Gemiler' about 15 minutes away. Why would you stay in noisy Hisaronu or Olu Deniz when you can stay in heaven and just visit the resorts for a bit of devilish fun? We will definitely be going back just as all the other guests seem to be doing! A block booking for longer might be better too! Ali the fantastically laid back owner will provide transport to/from airport if you don't want to dare take a bus like we did. I want to thank the family and locals so much for their warm hospitality.

A charming, peaceful base for exploring the haunting silence of Kayakoy; these apartments will have you wishing you had more time. Beautiful gardens embrace the buildings, with an enticing pool as the centrepiece. Host Ali is most welcoming, with nothing too much trouble. The accommodation is comfortable and spacious; the bathroom modern and very clean. Breakfasts are delicious; and drinks by the pool at the end of a day's touring is hard to beat. Self-catering is easy should that be your perference. The village is close by, so restaurants are within walking distance. There is a lot to see in the vicinity, so a car is a good idea but by no means mandatory. Definitely recommended.

Room Tip: All rooms open onto the gardens, so all are equally good.

Spent a week here recently & could not recommend it more. Ali has created a peaceful green oasis in Kaya. Nothing is too much trouble & with four new apartments ready soon, more will be able to enjoy it. There are plenty of trees for shade & relaxing in his kosk at the end of the day was wonderful.
We walked into the village to eat each night though a torch is recommended for the return journey.
His weekly BBQ, fish when we were there, was the best meal we ate in Kaya.

Stayed for a week in early October and thoroughly enjoyed location and facilities. The owner, Ali, was very welcoming, efficient and a great host. The apartments were self catering but Ali offered dinner and breakfast if required. The apartment was roomy and comfortable and wet room shower modern and up to date. Cooking facilities were ideal and each apartment had a terrace or seating area. The pool was set in grounds with covered areas to relax and wi-fi access. There is a bar by the pool and Ali has hens from whom he kindly gave us fresh eggs each day.
Ali gave us a lift into town and also drove us to Dalaman airport by arrangement (same cost as local taxi). He recommended local walks and things to do and one day went with us down to a local cove. We managed without a rental car and took local dolmus' to get around.
A great location to have a quiet week, walking or exploring. Far away from local tourist hotspots and Olu Deniz and the deserted village of Kayakoy is on your doorstep. We hope to return.

Room Tip: All apartments are fine. Choose whether you want ground floor or first floor.

We stayed there in April 2012. Lovely accomodation, set in a pretty village a short drive away from the sea. The owner is incredibly friendly and helpful. We enjoyed relaxing by the pool and exploring the local area. The food is great, Ali prepared us a delicious dinner and we had his breakfasts every day (though the apartments are self-catering so you could make your own). The village also had some good restaurants a short walk away. The children enjoyed playing in the garden and orchard and following the chickens about, they also enjoyed a horse ride in the village which Ali arranged for us.

The beautiful apartments, set in converted farm houses, have stone and fabulous wood walls. Each apartment comes with a cooking unit, and several of them have terrace-balconies outside. The owner, Ali, is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. He also can cook a great dinner. We visited in early April 2012, so the pool wasn't ready but there are plenty of beaches nearby. Kayakoy is the perfect place to stay near Fethiye, as the occupied village rests at the base of a hillside covered with houses that were abandoned in the early 1920s by their Greek inhabitants. The scenery around Kayakoy can only be described as picturesque, and we would recommend staying in this village instead of downtown Fethiye, even if it is less than half an hours drive from the main town. The gardens around the Doga Apartements are beautiful, filled with many herbs and flowers. Definitely a thumbs up!

When you arrive at Doga apts you immediately feel relaxed, with its beautiful natural surroundings, welcoming pool and bar area.
Ali the owner is always on hand for advise and local information or just a friendly chat at the bar.
There are many good local restaurants but Ali's Saturday night BBQ is definately not to be missed
This is our fifth stay at Doga and will being going back next July........It just gets better with every visit
