Great Investment Opportunity! Take a look at this immaculate, custom built 9 bedroom boutique hotel/ luxury property in Gocek. Tucked away in the pine forest just a short drive from Gocek centre and marina, it comes with 100% 5 Star Trip Advisor reviews, sits on over 9,000sqm of land, and has additional building permissions allowing for expansion if desired.
Gocek lies at the north-west end of the Gulf of Fethiye and is renowned as Turkey’s yachtsman choice. Situated equidistant between Dalaman and Fethiye, 20 minutes from the airport, the port of Gocek is a sophisticated town blessed with magnificent scenery and a lovely selection of high-end shops, hotels, restaurants and cafes.
We have all heard the adage "location, location, location" well it certainly applies here. Gocek is one of the most prized postcodes along the Turquoise coast. Many celebrities, the rich and the wealthy have either purchased holiday homes or moor their yachts in one of Gocek's six marinas. The waters around port are glorious homing pretty coves and 12 stunning islands beckoning to be explored. The backdrop is spectacular - pine forest covered mountains surround the town centre with the main Dalaman to Fethiye highway winding through the back and separating the flat town centre from the Gocek hills with their luxury villas and mansions such as this.
The entire area was officially designated a Registered Area of Special Protection in 1988 helping limit development and mass tourism - you won't find any high-rise hotels or cramped housing here! Gocek is a far more peaceful and charming resort. The centre provides all the necessary amenities; shops, mini-markets and supermarkets alongside the fancy high-end boutiques, international restaurants and cool shaded bistros. This luxury property in Gocek is a few minutes’ drive from the centre, in a peaceful forest location offering tranquility and seclusion from the crowds.
PROPERTY BUILD & ALLOWANCES
The property was completed in 2009 to owner specifications by respected Turkish architect Sema Kumyol Ridpath (A Previous Head of the Womens Federation of Architects). It was constructed to EU standards using top quality materials, local stone, marble, granite, wood and Travertine. Where possible local craftsmen, carpenters and artisans were employed making unique features throughout the home. These include an intricately crafted front door using 3 woods, a handmade fitted kitchen and decorative wrought iron banisters.
The property sits on 9,520sqm of land in an elevated position in the pine forest surrounding Gocek bay. Distant sea views can be enjoyed from the upper floor. It has no immediate neighbours and no-one overlooks the pool, bar or sun terrace making it ideal for those that value their privacy.
The owners have taken a Touristic License on the plot (9,520sqm).
. This allows 1,500sqm of total build on the land to include the 550sqm property already standing. In essence there is 950sqm building allowance still available – enough to build additional rooms, a residential wing, another 1 or 2 properties, stables or outbuildings.
The property is of unique design incorporating a feature open-air central courtyard. The site is walled and gated with a spacious car park to one side. It sits mid-top of its large plot looking over mature pine trees towards the sea. It is of triplex design with various steps and staircases taking you between levels. One lower ground floor bedroom has been specifically designed with wheelchair users in mind with ramp access around the property, extra large doors and en-suite facilities.
The property is entered into a long hallway via a feature hand-made door. The right leads past a cloakroom/wc to bedrooms 1 and 2, both good sized doubles with en-suites and patio doors leading to a balcony or terrace. Left of the main door leads to a spacious dining room with seating for 12. There is a feature, open air central courtyard stretching up through the centre of the entrance and top floors adding character to the property and providing the ideal place to escape, read or relax during the summer months. A music room/bar, a good sized lounge with fireplace and a modern kitchen with handmade cabinets and granite worktop are also on this floor. From the kitchen there is a side access to car park allowing for easy deliveries.
A marble staircase takes you up to the top floor. Here two large en-suite bedrooms can be found separated by a feature gallery walkway over-looking the internal courtyard. The master bedroom is a spacious double with Juliette balcony opening onto the central courtyard. It boasts en-suite facilities and a beautiful private terrace facing the forest, sea and sunset. The second top floor bedroom is again a spacious double with en-suite and balcony offering similar stunning views.
The lower floor is an extremely large space with 5 en-suite front facing guest bedrooms all opening directly out onto the poolside and grounds. To the rear of the bedrooms is the boiler room and a large space currently used as a gymnasium with separate toilet, storage room and shower facilities. There is a lot of potential in this space. It could easily be converted into a spa, sauna or steam room. Alternatively it could be made into a managers/owners/staff quarters allowing full use of all 9 main bedrooms.
The well maintained grounds of this luxury property in Gocek are dry-walled and gated with a car park on entry. Stone steps and ramped walkway (disabled access) take you down to the pool side terrace with bar and wc facilities to one side. The sun terrace is spacious with ample room for guest dining and sunbathing. The pool is the central feature and of Roman design. It is one depth entered via central steps rather than handbars. The property grounds boast mature shrubs, cacti, palms and beautifully scented plants, herbs and shrubs ultimately creating the perfect environment to relax and unwind in the tranquillity of the surroundings.
THE HOTEL INVESTMENT:
This property has been run as a B&B / boutique hotel since 2010 and earned the prestigious title of Trip Advisor Best Inn/B&B (Turkey) in 2015. The owners lived on site and managed the bookings and guests themselves with the help of a Turkish Manager. The 9 rooms are all individually designed and decorated, each with a luxury en-suite and either a terrace or balcony. Room rates vary according to whether Standard or Superior from 95 Euros per night low-season to 145 Euros per night high season (2015 prices).
Guests were originally found online via popular internet portals. As popularity grew, return visitors and guests via recommendation became the norm leaving the property fully booked for much of the high season. Yachtsmen, International CEOs, Ambassadors and Foreign Ministers have all spent time at the inn leading to more than 118 100% 5 Star Trip Advisor Reviews.
There is a lot of potential to expand the hotel business. Ideas include building an additional residential wing using the land allowance, developing the restaurant, marketing to specific clientele (yacht crowd, VIPS, celebrities), catering for yoga and wellbeing groups or photography/art/music holidays, striking up an exclusive deal with a luxury tour operator, or simply getting a manager to run the business for you whilst you sit back and enjoy the profits!
