She made us feel very welcome, even though we only communicated by e-mail and one telephone call. She has caretakers who live next door. I was able to phone them and let them know we were coming. Even though we didn't speak each other's language, the young woman ran down a path to greet us with a warm smile and gandshake when we arrived. She showed us to the house and showed us how to work everything. Told us we could call anytime if we needed anything. Then, she honored our privacy. I said hi to her every morning over the adjoining wall when we were both outside. The house is as advertised. Although very old, it's been refurbished and has modern amenities. It is decorated beautifully with much of the owner's own artwork. We spent 2 delightful afternoons with the neighbors on the other side. We were able to communicate with the help of Turkish-English dictionary. Very warm, generous people. You need a car to reach this house. Also, you must be able to walk up and down rough paths. Once in the house, steps are modern, but must use steps to go to bedrooms and bathrooms and kitchen. We spent time on the patio enjoying the peacefulness and beauty of the valley. It was magical during the call for prayer times.

Nergis was an incredible host. The home is a quaint, lovely house in a remote village. Naturally, I was slightly anxious about how to get to the house and how we were going to get around. Nergis made sure that we knew everything we needed to know and introduced us to a driver, a travel guide, a rental car company, her neighbors... I could keep going. It was such a unique experience to experience Cappadocia from a village with such a local experience. The home was also very adorable and nicely decorated. It did get pretty chilly at night but there were sufficient blankets to keep us warm.

A great house in a village settings away from the tourists and anything associated with tourism yet a short distance to all attractions. The house spacious and comfortable.

We really enjoyed our stay in this amazing, remote location. Highlights included being invited in for tea with Ibrahim and Fatma next door then helping them deliver their new cooker by donkey the next day. Their warmth and friendliness was an unexpected pleasure. The house is a good base for visiting Goreme, Urgup and other places on the Cappadocia tourist trail. The house itself is a fascinating structure, simply equipped and a cool place to be on a hot day. The shaded terrace has outstanding views and a divan to lounge on. As a tall person, I found I had to take care moving around and the fittings (kitchen in particular) would benefit from an update, although this is reflected in the price. If you are looking for an authentic Cappadocian rural experience and are not seeking luxury, I would certainly recommend it.

We enjoyed our second stay at the cave house; it is a special experience to stay in such a property in a quiet rural village where no English is spoken; the warmth and generosity of the local people is very evident.

It is an amazing house located in a very local and quiet village, and the house is decorated by a lot of photos and paintings that are all done by the hostess. We really think the information that the hostess provide is very useful and the guide called Ahmet recommended by the hostess is so reliable and friendly.
