2/3 bed top floor apartment , this is the centre piece of the complex with stunning veiws of the pool and the marmaris mountains.
Our duplex apartment is on two levels,the main picture you see, the apartment it the top right.
The lower level has an open plan living room and kitchen this is more than spacious for a family of 4 . Moving outside onto a patio balcony that comfortably houses a large round table and four chairs , from this balcony you have the full view of the large pool and all the coming and goings on the complex, perfect to watch the kids swim whilst you have a relaxing rest. The Kitchen has both a washing machine , full size fridge freezer and a gas hob there is also plenty of storage space . The downstairs toilet comes complete with wash basin .
Moving upstairs , there are 2 double rooms the main bedroom has a balcony that is glass fronted, great when you lie in bed looking out at the mountains both at night and in the early morning , the views are superb!!! The second bedroom has a double bed , both rooms have remote air-con fitted , There is also a large area at the top of the stairs that we use when friends stop there is a double blow up bed we use that more than fits in this area ,no air-con, however we have some stand up fans that work a treat. The bathroom is a corner bath with sliding doors there is a shower that works very well along with a toilet and washbasin.
The complex and local area
Armutulan is possible the best area in Marmaris , the ex president lives across the road, The complex houses 60 apartments half are Turkish the rest are holiday home owners. You will find it very quite and sometimes you may be the only ones around the pool .People are very friendly , there is no bang bang music this is a place to relax and respect.
The bus stop is right outside with the dolmus arriving in summer every 5 min ,Marmaris centre is no more than 10 min away. Local bars are a short work , some of these are lively and again very friendly however music is off at 12 pm Marmaris town is open till late so don’t worry if you want a late night dance. The complex is surrounded by a few hotels so you are not on your own.
The complex is at the foot of a nature trail hence the name "Nature Homes" the backdrop therefore is pine forests .
There are many shops and place to eat and drink within a 5 min walk
For those that have never been to Marmaris hopefully you will be pleasantly surprised . We first came here 7 years ago after trying a host of family holidays all over Europe including a few other locations in Turkey.
We found that not only did Marmaries cater for all age groups and family needs , there is the old town with its massive market winding streets and the biggest marine in turkey hosted by an array of eateries to the other side of the beach with its lively bars and late night music.
We find the people very friendly and the cost of living very fair depending of the Turkish Lira you should estimate a pint of beer to be no more £1.80 a steak meal on the harbour front £8 and fish meals less than £7 We find that the norm for a family of 4 at night including drinks is about £10 per head . If you fancy a proper English breakfast these will set you back about £2 !!!!!
Weather will vary , April is nice not many people about as the tourist season closes end of October and restarts early May . May starts to get hot with the pool starting to get filled by the end of May ready for the 40 degree plus that is on it’s way.
We bought our apartment within 20 min of viewing it . We had no plans to rent it out however after 3 years and all the family saying we should due to their experience we have decided to give it a try as it is locked up for 80% of the year.
The apartment and complex were excellent, the pool was lovely the security, maintenance were very friendly and helpful. The beds were very comfortable and balconies very roomy. The views from the apartment are beautiful, the photos do not capture how amazing the views are.
The apartment is located in an excellent area, so easy for the Dolmus but there are also numerous very friendly bars and restaurants in walking distance along with many small supermarkets. But if you want a larger supermarket we got the Dolmus to it and a taxi back, taxis are very reasonable and plentiful.
We loved the complex and do hope to return soon.
Fantastic,spacious Duplex Apartment,in a quiet area yet with everything within an easy reach, Marmaris Centre reached within 10mins at the cheap and regular Dolmas buses (every 5-10 Mins).
With beautiful views and an inviting pool and always a sun bed available it was the perfect place to base our holiday.

AGAIN THIS IS A COPY OF FEEDBACK FROM ANOTHER APARTNET ON THE COMPLEX BUT HOPEFULLY YOU WILL GET SOME POSATIVES FROM BELOW:-When we arrived at Nature Homes we were totally astounded. Even having seen your photos, the reality of the place was mind blowing. The pool area was much bigger than we anticipated. It was spotless and very organised. There were plenty of sunbeds and huge cushions and even though we only went out at mid-day, due to very late nights, we always managed to find enough beds for us all. The fact that we were allowed to bring food and drink to the pool area was an added bonus as most complexes don’t allow this. Not once during our stay did we feel unsafe. Your apartment is situated in very secure surroundings as the security guards on the front gate ensure no one other than residents are allowed on to the complex. These guards are extremely friendly and very helpful. In fact the Turkish people in general are the nicest people we have ever encountered abroad. The bus stop is situated right outside of the complex and the dolmus service runs every few minutes into Marmaris. This enabled us to get around quickly and cheaply. The cost of the fare being 40p Ƒ lira) to take you into Mamaris where there are shops, restaurants and bars galore! Armutulan was equally blessed with places to go and could be reached within minutes on foot. We ate out every night and not once had a bad meal. Everywhere we dined we were made to feel special and the food was superb and again quite inexpensive. There is no doubt in our minds that we will be back next year so book us in please!!! Thank you so much for organising the transfer from the airports etc. We have had a superb holiday in a very special accommodation and in a beautiful country. If people have any sense they will get booking with you now cos boy are they missing out!!!! Thanks again!!!!
please note below is feedback on an apartment on the same complex i have added it so you can feel confident on were you are stopping .It is not our apartment :- You will not be disappointed with this apartment. We were so surprised when we got there.The apartments are in stunning gardens and the pool area is really nice.With in a few minutes walk you have bars and restaurants we found a lovely tradional Turkish restaurant called La Kebab and it’s only a 5 minutes walk you must try this.Out side the apartments you will find the number 3 Dolmus (bus) this takes you in to Marmaris and onlyCost 1 lirea ࿈p) it takes about 5 to 10 mins to get to marmaris and the beach.In Marmaris we had a lovely meal at the Marina called Nil I had the Sea bass cocked in rock salt(If you like fish you will love this.) Infact we never had a bad meal while we were here.There are loads to do here you must have a Turkish bath it’s so relaxing and costs only around 15 lirea (٤.00)The Lazy day boat trip is a must too. For a night out try the Turkish night and Talk of the town.I hope you enjoy your holiday has much as we did. We also got engaged out here so if you need aRing go to the Jewellers in Marmaris called Vogue they also have a shop in Brighton.Have a good holiday "
