Luxurious 4 bed, 4 bath close to beach and local market. Large fenced garden, balconies and huge roof terraces. Close to amenities. Pool nearby. Wheelchairs Suitable
Our house, AmaLiz, is situated in Calis Beach, one of the best areas near Fethiye. Because the Calis Beach area is situated between two mountains, there is always a lovely sea breeze blowing through the town. Within a few minutes walking distance are the beach, shops and pubs, and Sunday market. The house is not on a development but a street of the town itself, near the main road between Calis & Fethiye. Amaliz is within easy walking distance of all amenities (including the local bazaar). You will be staying very near the bus route, so you can ride at any time either to the main Calis Promenade (tho the beach is easily accessible by foot) or Fethiye or further shopping in Calis!
Half of a semi, it has its own garden with room for two cars in the drive, or you may park in front. on the street. It is a quiet area, so you can relax and enjoy!
On GoogleEarth, exact location is:
Longitude 29° 70.38"E
The beach is a short walk away in one direction, as is the local Sunday Bazaar in the other direction. The larger Fethiye Bazaar is an easy bus ride away on Tuesday and is large enough to spend a day. On Friday is the Fethiye Produce Market in the same location as the Tuesday Market. Occasionally there is also an occasional Cooperative Market (think a huge Turkish WI sale and you will be spot on!) Supermarkets are also very close to the villa, so supplies are not an issue.
Amaliz Interior and Exterior
We chose this home because of its beauty, practicality and privacy. The enclosed garden to the front and side make a safe haven for children The greenery has grown since the photos and provide shade. The front/side terrace and and 2nd floor balconies are large enough for a table and chairs, while the 2 roof terraces are the size of 1/2 the floor area - large enough to entertain. There is a bbq outside the kitchen area on the patio. All balconies have a table and at least two chairs.
The house is designed with separate entrances so more families can stay together. At this time, there is just one kitchen on the ground floor. The ground floor has a large living room (only half is shown in the photo), the dining area, kitchen, and bathroom with shower. The second floor has a large bedroom suite with ensuite/shower and balcony, two further bedrooms (both share a large balcony) and bathroom with jacuzzi tub and hot water heater/shower. The top floor has the large bedroom with its own solarium, wc/shower, and a larger solarium for everyone's use. (this bedroom is not pictured) There is a utility area on the top floor with washing and ironing facilities.
There are pools across the narrow street at the hotels. They are wonderful there, and if you have a drink or food, they are happy to let you use the pool. Personally, we prefer this, as we know that with a pool, the house would soon be full of all the neighboring kids and Mom would have no rest at all as she fixes dinner for everyone as they are by the pool and constantly mops up the water tracked on the floors. This way, everyone gets to relax and have an enjoyable time with no worries and stress. The prices are amazing there, so no worries....you can eat and drink there reasonably! However, we are considering putting a pool in, so if it is vital to your holiday, please check back.
What does AmaLiz have?
We list this as a “luxury” villa because of the size, the amenities (like games and art supplies & multiple DVD players/stereos, etc.). Not because it has maid service, new linens for each party and is without fault. It’s a family home. There are faults. We are happy to fix any issues you might have. If you would complain that our personal food (which we offer to share) is out of date, this might not be the place for you. Because most likely some of the tea will be out of date. We don’t mind that. Other people do.
Well, as much as you could expect considering it is our home! Naturally, the kitchen is fully equipped and includes a microwave, oven/cooker and dishwasher. There is a large refidgerator/freezer for long visits and large families. There is a washing machine and miscellaneous. There is the all important air conditioning and heating for year-round holidays. If you want to stay in, there is Sat TV with separate receivers in the living area and master bedroom. We have ensured that there is English and European tv so noone misses their soaps! (Please say if English tv is a necessity as the satellite dishes sometimes need retuned.) There is a DVD player in both the living room and master bedroom & an extra. 1 player is SD card compatible. (DVDs in various languages are available cheaply everywhere), playstation with games, books, games (children and adult), writing materials, toys (sorry, mostly boys), pool inflatables, and much much more. There is a stereo system for MP3, radio and CD's. Naturally, all the household items such as combination safe, hair dryer, iron/board, etc. are there. The list will change as we travel back and forth, but you can be sure that the playstation and dvd players will stay.
New additions: MP3 speakers in living room and master bedroom for the ipods, etc
shopping trolly for the big trips to the market
refrigerator on top floor so easy access to ice/drinks on roof terraces
3 bicycles with bicycle locks.
1 adult Tricycle with ample carrying basket
3 beach parasols and lots of varied beach towels
Internet is available at no cost for 1G. The manager has the dongle & will deliver it with the keys. If you need more G, text him & he will get it for you (you pay him for it.)
Amaliz is also a "bookcrossing" zone. We hope that you will take, enjoy, and pass on the bookcrossing books provided and perhaps leave some for future guests.
We also have a wonderful Turkish gentleman who manages the property and who will sort out any need or problem which you have. From a welcoming packet of food, to organising rental cars, tours or translation services, his helpful, efficient and professional manner will ensure that anything you need will be sorted out.
We do allow smoking ONLY OUTSIDE and provide ashtrays for use outside. In the house itself, smoking is not allowed as it discolours the furnishings. There are many areas and balconies in which to smoke, so we ask that you do respect this.
Pets are allowed, but only as far as under the stairs in the hallway. There is no pet bedding.
THE LOCAL AREA:
Within a couple minutes walk:
The swimming pools are under a minute's walk away. The Harman Hotel is my Turkish home away from home and the walk-in pool is always spotless. They also have free wireless
2 Tennis courts with a running track and children's play area have just been built next to the Harman. Gorgeous - go and play or go and watch!
BIM supermarket - for essentials - not big but with meat, dairy, a bit of fruit and drinks and essentials.
There are also other supermarkets quite close
Within a 5 minute walk there are so many amenities:
The Pazar Cafe is a local english hangout - brilliant prices, free WiFi and you can make a free telephone call home if you eat a meal
The hardware shop (you know you have to look!)
The Sunday Market
A bit further are 2 new supermarkets - not huge ones, but ones where you can find most things.
The "humpback bridge" is the closest access to the beach. It is a maximum of a 10 minute walk, even strolling slowly. A decent walk gets you to the closest beach in about 5 minutes. A 1 minute walk gets you to the bus route where you can catch the bus to the centre of Calis & the main Promenade & tourist shops. It is about a 15 minute walk.
Upon rental, I send guests a comprehensive rental information pack with more information and maps, etc.
Please note that the rental is for the people listed on the booking only. We have had a UK booking for 8 which was in reality a global family reunion with 25. This is not acceptable and you will be asked to vacate.
