Magical Airbnb - Gocek

Stylish Suite in Gocek Center - Epocasa 1 - One night


From the moment you arrive at Epocasa to the moment you leave this magical Airbnb, you truly feel at peace.

So much love and thought have gone into the building of this beautiful boutique accommodation. You can feel the passion, and the team have such incredible energy.


We wished we could have stayed longer, however, this place is so popular, you'll need to book in advance.


The build quality and finishings are in a different league compared to other Airbnbs we've stayed in around Turkey. There is no wood veneer in sight; think solid wood, not one piece of Ikea furniture to be seen, and very high-quality finishings for your comfort.

This place is also perfect for those that want to self-cater. It is fully equipped to do so or take advantage of the abundance of dining establishments on the doorstep.


You will find a washing machine, a dishwasher, a lovely balcony to watch the sunrise over the mountains, or simply people-watch. It has everything you need.


There was plenty of hot water and lightning-fast wifi, perfect for digital nomads, especially with the cafe below, a popular digital nomad spot we noticed over the weekend. We often sat downstairs in Epocafe and felt it had a chic coastal style reminiscent of Byron Bay or Noosa in Australia.


Epocasa is located above Epocafe, a beautiful, modern sunfilled coffee shop brews the best coffee we've tasted in our five-month journey around Turkey. You also have Epoca Carpet, a traditional Turkish rug store for perusing or shopping.

Think more relaxing furnishings, chill out on the green grass outside, chilled tunes, and Oktay, and the team exude warm energy and full of positive vibes.

Gocek is a hidden coastal gem; large developments are banned, nothing over two-story-high, calm, relaxed community vibe, super-yachts, and catamarans dot the harbour and marina. Peaceful views and spoilt for choice for dining.

You'll want to stay for a week to ensure you leave refreshed, and you will make many newfound friendships.
