“Chilling Out”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Have stayed at Levissi Han several times over the years. Ibo and Sheri are always friendly and welcoming. The cottage we stayed in this time was towards the front of the gardens with it's own shady terrace and amazing fireplace in the lounge. I enjoy the little extra touches - like fresh flowers in the room on arrival and a more than basic stock of food in the kitchen. Ibo is so helpful and knowledgeable about the area and facilitates the mingling of guests by making introductions and organising trips where guests have an opportunity get to know each other. The area itself is rural, but with easy reach of the beach and the busy village of Hisaronu if needed. Altogether a fantastic holiday.

This was our second visit to Levissi Han and we have no regrets about coming back for a second installment. Ibo and Sheri make you so welcome and the place is so quiet and beautiful. Definately a place to get away from everything but you are only a bus ride away from the other nearby towns if you fancy some noise. Lots of family run restaurants are in walking distance which cook excellent food. Round the corner is a small shop so you don't have to go far for supplies. Hope we can visit again soon.

Room Tip: All the cottages are roughly the same size.

We have just returned from a wonderful stay at Levissi Han with my family. It was a very relaxing and comfortable holiday. We stayed in one of the cottages which was very spacious and clean and had everything we needed. Ibo is an excellent host and made us feel very welcome, nothing is too much trouble. Ibo took us on many outings around Turkey, many of which we would not have seen had it not been for him, it also helps that he seems to know someone wherever we went! I am missing Sky, Max and Santa already, as well as the 7 cats and tortoise.
The garden is amazing, picking my own figs for breakfast and picking a lemon for our Gin & Tonic in the evening what more can you ask. Kaya village is a very quiet rural village, like a step back in time but very peaceful.
There was absolutely nothing to complain about. We will definitely return, hopefully next year.

Room Tip: All the cottages are equal, for a big group of people the house is pretty amazing and very private a...

Myself and my family stayed in Levissi Han for a week in August and I must say it was one of the best holidays we have all had. The warm welcome we had on arrival was second to none and considering we did not arrive until the early hours of the morning it was amazing. The main villa was very spacious and we also rented two of the cottages which were also very sizeable. All properties were well kept and very clean with the staff maintaining this throughout our stay.

The pool was lovely and a great temperature meaning that you could jump straight in unlike many of the hotel pools that you find.

During our stay we also went on a boat trip provided by the owners of the property which was excellent value for money and again could not have been more hospitable if they tried, providing a great day, nice food and also a child friendly environment.

All I can say is that it was an excellent place to stay and we are already looking for flights to return next year.

Highly recommend a stay.

Ibo and Sheri are very welcoming, its a family run private and quiet accomodation set in a rural rustic town. Kayakoy is quaint, unspoilt and has natural Turkish charm, just like Levissi Han. I have just returned from a group holiday of family and friends and my two children were never out of the pool! If you dont have a car to get about, right outside the front door is a Dolmus stop (minibus stop) which will take you to pretty much anywhere you need to get to.

We arrived in the early hours of the morning and Ibo had already taken the liberty of stocking our fridge and cupboards with the immediate bare essentials which was greatfully appreciated! The appartments are lovely and very homely and clean. They have a few dogs and cats there that are very friendly, as animal lovers this was of no problem to us but bare this in mind if you are not.

Levissi Han is located about 30mins drive from Olu Deniz which has the nicest beach and little shopping town and is about 20mins from Gemilar beach and the nearest main town is Hisaronu also about 10mins drive away.

If you are thinking of paying for a private transfer shuttle bus from the airport to Levissi Han I would suggest asking Ibo or Sheri for recommendations, although it was simple finding our shuttle bus when we arrived, the driver did not speak or read english and did not know how to get there and there was a few problems confirming the return shuttle the day before we left and they ended up charging us extra.

Ibo was very helpful and friendly and we had such a wonderful holiday. Im looking forward to when I can book my next family trip there!

Highlights:
1. Private and totally secure grounds so children can run around and you do not need to worry where they are.

2. Due to the privacy you pretty much have free rain of the grounds if you are travelling in a large group as there are only a handful of cottages and villas

3.Ibo has his own boat and will take you out on boat trips from Gamilar Beach so you can trust who you are travelling for the day with and what's included. His prices are not excessive either.

4.Any problems or concerns you may have, Ibo and Sheri are very helpful, Ibo was great with our shuttle minibus service that we had booked seperately! Next time, I will use their recommended transport company.

5.Dolmus (bus stop but by minibuses) stop right outside the front door.

6.Close to "Ghost Town" (one of the many attractions) when you speak to excursion sales men in Hisoronu town - no need to go to Hisoronu to book this its minutes away from Levessi Han and you can pay at the entrance. This is great for history lovers, but not for those with walking difficulties as its up on rocky steep hills.

7.Childrens activities really is the pool, my children was always in there but Ibo had already started on building a childrens play area as my group were leaving. I have given this a 4 on the rating because that is all there was but this was perfect for my children.

Considerations:
1.Being in a rural location you could feel a little isolated if you didnt have your own form of transport but Ibo is extremely helpful and the Dolmus is regular.

2.Although Ibo was extremely helpful friendly and so accomodating I would have liked a bit more clarity on costs of drinks and the little extras either before arrival or on arrival. I had no problems at all with anything but for someone who had a budget, I like to be certain on the little extras so that I can really relax and enjoy my holiday.

Tips:
1.Most shops take sterling pounds as well as Lira (as does Levessi Han) so be clear with the vendor what currency they are trading in.

2.Dalaman Airport charges £10 or 10 Lira on arrival per person (i cant remember which currency they wanted).

3.If your driving, be aware of speed bumps (not very visible at night and quite a shock when travelling at speed), also be aware of the winding roads especially through the hills, quite a drop on one side if your not looking properly.

To sum it up, it was prefect, comfortable, friendly, relaxing and just a really lovely holiday. Thank you Ibo and Sheri for everything, my family had a great holiday and we didnt want to leave!

Thanks again
Lorri, Wayne, Lia and Emily.

Do not waste your money going here. No air con (despite the references), wasp nest in the pool umbrellas, disfunctional kitchen, mice in the cupboards, too many chemicals in the pool (swimwear bleached), furniture falling apart - I could go on but don`t have time!
Don't expect any action if you complain while you're there and don't expect a reply if you complain when you get home.

Wonderful welcome from the hosts and guest care.
Our cottage on front had a garden pleace, very romantic.
The bedroom is spacious and breezy with a direct entrance to the spacious bathroom. The kitchen is equipped with everything. The living room has a dining area and resting place, TV and fireplace.
The place has a great location. Without noisy tourist crowds. Nestled between green mountains and not far from several beautiful beaches.
Hosts organize tourist trips by private boat. Also and shopping tour if interested.
Best thing is the freedom to plan every night with something different. You may mix of quiet evenings with noisy bars located 5 minutes away by car or public transport. Homemade dinner or restaurant.
Proposed is a choice between a nice pool near to cottage or visit the beach.

Room Tip: Whichever you choose can not complain about anything. They are all good.
