At the Aegean Cost of Turkey, in Kusadasi-İzmir (check at http://www.kusadasi.com), my family has a summer house. It is fully furnished.
It has a big lovely garden. just 10 minutes walking distance to the beach (the "green beach", check at http://www.kusadasi.com/beaches.php ) .
There is a supermarket again in walking distance. Transportation to town center is very easy. minubuses and taxis pass front of the house.
Kusadasi is a nice and lively summer town, close to İzmir and Ephesus. you can join daily tours. Also night life of Kusadasi is very attractive. It is not an expensive town, honestly very cheap compared to other coastal towns in Europe.

As tourists all over the world come here, communication is not a problem, most of the shop-cafe-restaurant owners speak English.
I am an enginner, living in Ankara (capital of TURKEY). Because I'm working, I cant have very long holidays, at most 2 weeks. I love!! travelling, I've been to many countries in Europe, Asia and visited many cities in USA. Until now, I've prefered package tours, but what I've heard and read about "home exchange" made me very curious and I want to give it a try.
please feel free to ask me any questions about the house and town as you want, cause I'm new here, I'm not sure how to describe them.
