Khader, you are such a young guy with a great future ahead of you if you ask yourself what you did wrong and learn from your mistakes. You know that what you wrote here is not true, you stayed with us almost two weeks on a full board basis including all the meals in a private room almost doing nothing in exchange . It doesn't work this way you should put some effort to gain respect. We had to ask you to leave since we needed help in the house this is why we have this position open.

This was the first time I came to Turkey and I couldn't have found a better way to start! Asli and Haluk became my "parents" from the first moment I entered the door. Asli is an excellent cook so you'll eat proper meals every day! The tasks are easy to do and if you don't know how to do something, they'll teach you patiently. They're also very flexible so you can explore around without a problem. I'll miss this family including Balkas and Dummy (the friendliest dog and cat ever) and it's going to be difficult to me to get used to eat normal food again :(

My time here was nothing but exquisite. The warm reception from Asli and Haluk and the extended time and special moments that they sacrificed to show me around Turkey was priceless. Thank you Asli for your patience and so much effort to teach me about Turkish food. Thank you both for making me feel part of your family. I would love to be back to honour you.

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.

Thank you so much!
