“Now even better!”
Reviewed August 12, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My wife and I have stayed in this cottage for several years and the place is just as pretty now as it has always been.The interior has now been improved with a larger kitchen with modern oven/hob and larger fridge/freezer and also armchairs and a sofabed replacing the old divans in the lounge.
Liz and Ahmed are as friendly and as helpful as ever and the food on the boat trip is exceptional, you really must try to go on of these trips during your stay if you have not done so before!
As other reviewers have said Bitez village is a short walk away and has excellent butchers,bakeries etc should you want to self cater,or if you walk to the beach there are numerous restaurants to try.
We love this place and would visit more often if we could.

“You're very own little bit of Turkey”
Reviewed July 16, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Loved every minute of our stay at this beautiful little cottage. Set in a peaceful location but with everything you could possibly need. Only a 10 minute walk from the beach or the village. No need to say too much about this cottage as it is just absolutely perfect. Had an amazing holiday. Thanks Liz

“Most relaxing holiday ever”
Reviewed July 31, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Peaceful, tranquil, private paradise, it's hard to believe this cottage is so close to a lively beach! Shop and eat in the village. Go on Ahmet's boat trip. Be prepared for some walking (or hire a car/scooter). Superb hosts! We will return.

“Lovely quiet cottage”

we loved our stay at olive cottage, it was peaceful and a very pleasant place to stay. Location wise it is right between the village and the beach (15 minute walk either way to each) and the cottage itself is off away from any busy roads. The garden is lovely and the splash pool is perfect when you need to cool off. Liz and Ahmet are wonderful hosts and nothing was a problem for them. I would recommend the cottage to anyone and was a perfect place to go if you want to get away from it all. The cottage is about a 40-55 minute drive from bodrum airport. We got a taxi /transfer which Liz kindly booked for us.

When I first saw this property about 7 years ago I thought WOW and now having stayed
there for the past 6 years I still look forward to going back.Olive cottage has a pretty garden containing citrus and olive trees and a nice splash pool.What better than to come back from the beach in the evening and chill out with a glass of wine,cook dinner on the bbq and just relax-life is just so peaceful here! The beach is about 15-20 minutes walk and Bitez village about the same distance in the opposite direction.
Liz and Ahmed are one of the nicest couples you are likely to meet (Ahmed also runs a really nice boat trip from Bitez beach.
