This apartment at Orka Gardens, Ovacik, Turkey is great.
If you want an inexpensive way to have a holiday then rent this apartment. Sleeps 6/7 (2 doubles and a twin and a big couch) 2 bathrooms, well equipped kitchen and a washing machine.
The shared pool is big enough never to bump into anyone, sun beds and umbrellas all provided.
Cleaning service every couple of days means no chores for you to do.
It is out of town so no hustle and bustle or noise, but is close enough to get a taxi (£3), a dolmus bus (a walk and bus ride 50p) or a walk if you are keeping fit. We walked to the town most days and got either a taxi back up the hill to the apt or the shuttle bus from the apartments sister The Orka Hotel.
The sun is out calling your name to have this Turkish experience.
Oonagh will arrange the 50 min transfer from Dalaman Airport to collect your apartment key, collect some grocery basics and then to the apartment. You pay the driver the set fee directly.
The local bars and restaurants were amazing and along with the purchase of some great shopping bargains too really made our holiday special.
All we have to do now is book for next time!!!
My family and I rented out this apartment for 2 weeks in August and we had a lovely holiday. From the start the shuttle service from the airport was very efficient. Could not fault the apartment at all and the owners were very helpful. The pool was also very big and there were plenty of sun beds for everyone. The rooms were spacious and comfy beds. Although the balcony is quite small there was enough chairs for our party of 6 to fit round which allowed us to have some nights in the apartment during our stay rather than going out. The leaflets and menus provided were also useful. The location of the apartment is a little further away than we thought from the main town Hisaronu which we were more familiar with however we were able to walk into Ovacik to access many other nice eating places. During the day the walk up the hill is quite tiring but there is a button you can press to ring for a taxi which is very cheap and handy. Wish we could have stayed for longer, thank you!!
The apartment was absolutely beautiful. Could not have asked for anything better. Look forward to going back again in the not too distant future. Everything about the place was great including the local shops, bars and restaurants.

I stayed in E4 for 3 weeks June- July and what can I stay other than it was perfect!! Absolutely immaculate and it was furnished to a very high standard, the kitchen was fully equipt with everything you could possibly need. This apartment had loads of extras including a playstation, DVDs, playing cards and dominoes. I found myself on the balcony playing dominoes with the kids at 8 am in the morning whilst having breakfast ha ha!! The cleaners came in every other day and changed towels bedding etc, don't expect this in every apartment though as its whatever service the owners pay for, the owner Oonagh obviously likes her property looked after and pays for the best service! Oonagh was also a pleasure to deal with and is able to help out with any questions or queries you may have.
The pool at the apartments is huge and we never had a bit of bother getting a sun lounger Some days it was only us using the pool. We made use of the free shuttle service that Orka put on, we would use the hotel down the road as they have a kids club and a water slide for the kids, also worth paying and going to the BBQ and Turkish night as the entertainment and food were good. I would also recommend going to the 5* Sunlife resort for the day it costs £25 an adult kids £12.50 that's all inclusive and they have a water park for the kids, book at the reception of the hotel or through Alana (the rep for the apartments) she is fantastic and full of knowledge about the area, they will also arrange a free transfer to the Sunlife for you.
I stayed here with 3 other girls. The apartment is spotlessly maintained and spacious. The kitchen was equipped with everything you need.
Although away from the main town, there were bars and restaurants nearby, but it was an easy taxi or bus ride in to Hisaronu or Oludeniz.
The pool area was lovely, we visited at the end of September and it was very quiet, perfect for relaxing with plenty of sun beds.
I would definitely visit this area again and stay in this apartment as there is so much more to explore in this area
