Levent is truly an excellent host who really took good care of us for the entire stay with him. Levent generously arranged to pick us up from the airport as agreed on time, and the bungalow we stayed was a wonderful place. The location of the lodging is in a walking distance to the beach, also surrounded by the wilderness which made our stay in Karaburun a seclusive place for vacation.
Levent took us to a seafood restaurant for dinner. It was one of the best choice for seafood cooked in Turkish style I ever wonderfully experienced. Karaburun is about one and a half hour from Izmir city center. The quiet town offers a spectacular scenic surrounding with open view of the blue sky and backdrop with great mountain background. The Agean sea nearby is as clear as the glass, and you could take a dive to explore marine lives and colorful pebbles on the bottom of the sea bed.
Levent's bungalow is quiet, clean and peaceful. People are very nice and friendly. It is a place where people would say 'hello' with a smile to you wherever you go. I felt safe and secure in the bungalow, and Levent has been so caring making me feel right at home.
If you would like to tour the towns nearby, i.e. Cesme and Alaciti, where the remembrance of the Greek influence can still be traced, Levent can organize the program for you with minimal fee. I love the Alaciti town where the sun and sea and cafes are abundant. The town is only one hour away from Karaburun.
I can assure that you will not be disappointed staying with Levent, as I will surely return for my book writing for a month in a near future. Thanks so much Levent for your hospitality and all the helps you gave us. See you again soon. Bert Lee
