    BA cancelling Bodrum flights - Dalaman option?

    I received an email from those lovely people at BA to say that they have cancelled my return flight from Bodrum in August - not the flight out, just the flight back! They say they are no longer going to fly in and out of Bodrum in August and I believe my outbound flight at end of July is the...

    Jazz Cafe - take care!

    Continuing on my theme of local places to eat / drink we paid a visit to the Jazz Cafe on the waterfront the other night. There was live music courtesy of a girl duo who were ok. The drinks are on the high side (say, 15Tl for a standard size Efes) which we assumed was to cover the live music...

    Sa'kin restaurant

    Has anybody tried this newish restaurant on the road up from the waterfront towards Gumsan? The setting looks nice. So many restaurants along this road have been and gone in recent years (except Limon of course). Anyway, will probably give it a try tonight. By the way, had very good evening...

    Mains water supply

    We have not been out to our villa in Koyunbaba Bay since October but when we were last there it seemed that we were close to getting a mains water supply being laid on.

    cctv cameras

We have received a message from our resident site caretaker that it is to be made obligatory for all sites to have at least one cctv camera installed complete with recording unit. It will probably cost us at least US$750. I...

    Kids - when do you stop worrying about them?

    The answer is clearly never. I was talking to a work contact the other day and she told me she was now back working part time. She has 3 young daughters and she thinks they are now old enough for her to go back to work. However, she was finding it tough going as she was constantly concerned...

    Car Hire

    With Spring approaching, more of us are now turning our thoughts to our Spring and Summer hols in Turkey. But what about car hire? We have been using a number of different Bodrum based companies over the past 3 years or so. Most have been ok although some of the cars have been a bit ropey and we...

    Non payment of maintenance fees

    We are currently having dreadful problems with our complex management. Too many to mention all here but for starters the builder owns 3 unsold villas (there are 16 in total). He has not paid any maintenance for many months and has been ignoring us. To make matters worse he is the current...
