“Lovely setting, comfortable rooms”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2011

Theimussa has a wonderful location right on the water with great views in all directions. Our room was on the small side, but very comfortable and nicely decorated. There was a table outside our room to have a very tasty breakfast, but we choose one of the tables out on the beautiful deck. We took the corner room with view of the Lycian tombs and the water. If the weather permits, you can swim off the dock where there are lounge chairs and umbrellas. Louisa, the British manager was very accessible and helpful; she set up our kayak trip to Kekova, the sunken city that is nearby and gave us a great restaurant recommendation. Ucagiz, where the pension is located is a lovely small town, with very friendly people. Once the tour buses leave mid-afternoon, you really get a feel for the place.

It was just by accident that we stumbled upon the Theimussa and got the last room in the pension. Incredible luck after blindly driving in to Ucagiz / Kekova, our maps were not great, the jumping off point for the Sunken City along the Lycean Way.
The pension is surrounded by the blue water of the Mediterranean on one side and above ground tombs from the Lycean civilization on the other. It is also geographically located so it sticks out on a small spit of ground allowing it to catch the coolest breezes around, which I can imagine would be pretty desirable in the summer months. This you can all take in while sitting on the patio an sipping cold beer from the bar.
Louisa, one of the owners and a British citizen was totally knowledgeable on the area and activities. She served us a great meal of fresh fish prepared in their kitchen and more cold beer while we took in the evening. Even the call to prayer sounded
almost enchanting as it echoed off the water and surrounding hills. The room was clean and comfortable and the bathroom was the nicest on our trip with the best shower in Turkey.
I only wish we had more time here. If you are heading to Kas, book a night or two here. You will not be disappointed.
Thanks Louisa!

We arrived in Kekova without a reservation and were taken to this pension by a friendly local. We were ready to say NO if we didn't like it and haggle but when we saw it it was so lovely we were very happy to accept it and felt lucky we'd been shown it.
The pension sits right on the waters edge at the end of the small water front road. (park off the square and walk there - 1 minute only). In front of it are a few sun beds and the sea and behind it are the archeological remains of Theimussa which you can clamber around.
It is very peaceful and stylish. The rooms are modern and clean and the bed was very comfortable.
Room includes aircon, hair dryers, good bathroom with shower. We didn't get towels but I think they would have been provided had we mentioned this.
Breakfast was omelette, bread, honey, jam, olives, tomatoes, cheese and cucumber.
There were steps to get in and out of the sea if you wanted to swim - which was hard not to do with it being right outside your door.
Volcan (associsted with the hotel) owned a small motor boat which we hired for 2 hours or so and were driven around the ruins and islands.
Bar prices at the pension were reasonable.

For those who previously enjoyed the hospitality provided by Louisa and her family at the Pension Kekova - this is the place to stay. Louisa and family took over theTheimussa Pension earlier this year . Beautiful settling and although slightly off the Lycian Way - well worth the time to locate the Theimussa Pension on the east side of the town. Great food and a relxing atomsphere.
