“An idyllic spot with all you need for a comfortable home from home stay”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This large, well appointed, comfortable and fully equipped villa is a delight. Even though our stay was during high summer there was always shady spots to find and , of course, a dip in the pool was a welcome relief.
A particularly pleasant spot was the cardak, where some red squirrels would occasionally descend from the trees. We were most surprised to encounter each other!

Although the marina centre of Gocek is within walking distance, a car is useful, in order to explore many of the historical sites However taxis are not expensive
There are many restaurants in Gocek and some, very good ones, on the road into town from the villa.
The Sunday fruit & vegetable market is well worth a visit. The local produce is fresh and tasty. There are also many supermarkets in Gocek plus the garage, near to the villa has a fruit & vegetable seller during the day, plus esentials and is open late at night.
For a real treat it is possible to charter a boat for the day.
Be prepared to barter for most things!

“Well equipped villa with private pool, garden and nearby tennis court.”
Reviewed 5 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Sweet Gum 8 is at the top of the development, and so furthest from the fairly busy road that by passes Gocek. From the top balcony you can see the sea! Beautiful coastline.
The villa is clean and well designed, with an open plan living space leading onto a balcony over the pool, an upstairs double bedroom with en suite and 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms downstairs. The gardens have several seating areas for shade and sun plus a barbecue.The development has a tennis court, a swimming pool and security guards.
Gocek is a pretty place with and attractive marina full of yachts and commercial boats which offer day trips around the 12 islands. Lots of good restaurants and a few shops. Lots of places nearby for day trips e.g the Saklikent Gorge, the Dalaman River, Oludeniz.
