About David Lockwood
My wife and I are UK citizens with 2 teenage kids of 19 and 18. We both work for a living, myself for a large UK bank and my wife for a large restaurant chain. We both look forward to our 2 annual trips to our villa each year as it gives us a chance to get away and relax in the most peaceful of settings. We always wanted a holiday home and Gocek certainly ticks all the boxes for us - Idyllic Setting, friendly people, excellent cuisine, private pool and within walking distance to all the local amenities. I'm a keen gardener and much of the garden design and planting is all my own. I've love Palm Trees and have a number of them planted around the grounds. But don't just take our word for it, we invite you you come and sample the delights of one of Turkey's hidden Gems.
David Lockwood purchased this Villa in 2007
Why David Lockwood chose Gocek
The town of Gocek is everything you could wish for when looking for that quiet, peaceful location. We feel in love with the town as soon as we arrived. Friendly people, great restaurants, spectacular views and a wonderful marinas - who could ask for more ? Gocek does not attract the mass tourist market and is perhaps not the best place for a younger crowd who want nightclubs and music bars open until dawn. We found our villa which is just 5 minutes walk from town and made an offer the following day. Since then we have not looked back.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa is located in a quiet area behind the local Sunday market. It has beautiful views to the forested hillside to the front and to the right the beautiful pink and gold mountain range surrounding Gocek. The villa is close to the main harbour areas and all the cafes and restaurants are a short 5 minute stroll.
