Learning & Fun


Living with Aslı and Haluk was a great experience!
They’re lovely, worried people and are always trying to make you feel better and comfortable.
I learned many things with Aslı, since cooking amazing Turkish food to knitting.
It’s a calm place to live and relax. Also a great place to meet people from around the world.
The center of Bodrum is a bit far, but you can easily get a bus to go there and Aslı always helps with a ride to the bus stop.
I highly recommend this place to stay.
Thank you so much Aslı and Haluk for being my Turkish family.
You have a special place in my heart.

It was very nice opportunity to experience the real culture of Turkey and Turkish people with amazing food. Asli and Haluk are definitely very easy going and they made me feel like home the whole time.
Thank you so much!

Quisiera aclarar que este lugar sę encuentra a 30 km de Bodrum y a 2 km aproximadamente de la ruta. Por consiguiente está muy aislado. Sólo me quedé una noche ya que no me sentí bien ahí. Era mi primera experiencia como wordpacker y estaba muy entusiasmada pero me decepcionó completamente. El trabajo parece que era sólo lavar vajilla. O tal vez ese era el período de adaptación. Rescato la cena y agradable compañía con el hijo de Alsi y con la misma Alsi que cambió su actitud para conmigo en ese momento.

Stayed with Asli and Haluk was an amazing experience! They are very creative, kind and make me feel like home.
I learned a lot with both, through artistics stimulation. Asli is amazing cook, intelligent, funny, flexible, open minded. I'll never forget my moments in that house. The place is beautiful and peaceful, I had privacy, time to rest and was possible know other cities. Turkey is great and Turkish people are awesome! So rich culture!!
Thanks for everything, Asli and Haluk! You're in my heart!
