Our family made a decision to buy a house in the sun in 2012. We had thought it would be in Spain. We unexpectedly joined friends on holiday in oluDeniz/Fethiye(actually closer to Berlin than Syria and only 4 hours flight time from the UK with year round budget flights) and fell in love with the people and the place.
The location, the amenities, the low cost of living, the safety, and most of all the people, combined with 13 hours sunshine each day and the clearest sea water on earth. We knew this was the place to be.
There are many developers in the region, and we’ve all heard the horror stories. We came across Orka homes and were very impressed. Their designs, value for money, finance options and willingness to really listen convinced us quickly these were the people we wanted to deal with – all we had to do was find or design the plot and the home – both of which we easy and enjoyable processes.
It was very reassuring to hear the local people all congratulate us, not for buying a home in their town, but for buying it from Orka direct. They told us the company was the best in South West Turkey and now, 4 years later, we know why.
In the 4 years that have passed since we bought our first Orka home, 5 other close friends or family members have also purchased a home from Orka. These range from stunning Villa’s with private pools and sea views, swim up apartments in a new complex and modest apartments on a guaranteed rental return. Not only have we bought houses, Orka have helped us create a home an extend our family.
We have learned we can rely absolutely on anything Orka say will happen. We’ve been amazed at the build quality, attention to detail, assistance with legal and financial matters and after sales care. We are not alone – in the last 4 years we have met countless families from all over Britain, Europe and beyond who are just as pleased as we are to be a proud owner of an Orka home. Come and join us, quickly!

One of the best decisions we ever made to buy a Villa in Turkey. We are also very happy that we bought it through Orka, they have an incredible team to help you from start to finish and the After Sales is just as good. We have made some lovely friends in the process. Highly recommend them

We first came across Orka in 2012, when we booked to stay at Club Orka. Anyone who has stayed here will know how welcoming all the staff are here, and how they have a magical way of making you feel like you are not just a guest but more part of their family.
Since that first visit, we have visited Turkey and the Ovacik/Fethiye region a number of times but have always stayed with Orka, why because they make you feel so very welcome as soon as you arrive. We have over the years stayed at Club Orka in the onsite villas, Orka Sunlife, a couple of Orka built privately owned villas, Orka Boutique hotel in Fethiye and most recently the five star hotel Orka Lotus Beach in Marmaris, and we have experience no less than a five star service at all of these. We have during our stays made many new friends with both other families and Orka staff.
In 2015, whilst on holiday, we decided to look at at the possibility of purchasing property in the Ovacik region. After looking at a number of properties from various developers including Orka, we decided to put a deposit down on a villa with Orka. Why Orka, because they offered everything we wanted and more. Another thing we liked about Orka and Bagadur Mamedov, the person who help us all the way through the purchase and after, was there was no "hard selling" which some other companies use. From the outset they explained to us exactly what the costs would be from start to finish, and should we wish to rent it out what our potential income may be. Having found the ideal property for ourselves, we met with Ercan Torunogullari one of the owners of Orka, and agreed the price and put down a holding deposit.
With the holding deposit placed down we flew home and had time to mull over our purchase. Following a few weeks of careful consideration, we contacted Bagadur and made arrangements to complete the purchase.
In March 2016, following the purchase of the property we were invited back to furnish the villa. Again Orka was on hand to assist us with this process ensuring not only that we got what was needed but also overseeing all the deliveries to the villa giving us time to relax and enjoy our time to the max in Turkey.
We then flew back out again in May to check all the furnishings we have purchased for the villa had been delivered and placed in the correct rooms, as per instructions left with Orka and spend a few nights in it before returning in August with all our family.
In August we returned we returned and again nothing was a problem, the snagging list we had discussed with Orka prior to leaving in May hard all been done and we had a lovely family holiday around our pool.
Many thanks to Orka Homes and everyone at Orka for making us feel so welcome, if you are thinking about coming to Turkey with regards to holidaying or purchasing a second home we cannot recommend Orka highly enough.

We have purchased homes in various countries but have never experienced the level of expertise and service that we have from all of your team,
From the outset you have provided us with guidance when purchasing our first home four years ago and have made the legalities easy and effortless this seamless process has continued as we have purchased several more of Orka properties.
Once the formalities were completed you provided us with a dedicated member of your team to take us around to choose fixture, fittings and furniture, never was anything too much trouble.
The after sales service that you provide is excellent, anything we need or want advice on is dealt with speed and efficiency.
Thank you Ozkan, Ercan and your team, a special mention also to Alan, Gizem and Erkan you have taken us into yours hearts which, for us, is priceless
