Info about Akbuk

Hi there.
Continuing my research about places to buy in Turkey. What opinions/info do people have about Akbuk?
Is it an all year resort? Is much open in the Winter or does it close down?
Are there nice places to visit around the area?
Thanks very much.

Rosie

Re: Info about Akbuk

I am curious about what kind of amenities you are looking for. What do you mean by 'close down' are you referring to bars, restaurants used by expats?

Re: Info about Akbuk

You need a car in Akbuk , parts of it can be very hilly , it's not really an all year round resort
We looked at a property there but decided against it , at the time it was dead during winter , it may have changed now

Re: Info about Akbuk

A lot of houses are on the level but they did start to build on the lower part of the hills a few years back.
There are some facebook pages that may help you.

Thanks for your replies. We would just want a couple of restaurants and supermarkets open in the Winter months. I'll try FB pages. Thanks.

You should be OK if that's what you are looking for just don't expect nightclubs.

I don't think I could handle a nightclub these days-can't stay awake late enough

I've had an apartment in Akbuk since 2006 ,there are always places to eat and drink throughout the year more each year.
Akbuk is not a loud noisy place but there is p!entry of live music to be had in the main seasons,always supermarkets open .
Property is relatively cheap but p!ease DO NOT buy off plan.

Thanks for that.

We've previously had two properties in Turkey and two in the TRNC. We wouldn't really want off plan and would make sure that Habitation Certs and Tapu were in vendors name etc. Better safe than sorry.

Re: Info about Akbuk

Confession time. We bought our villa in Gulluk off plan. We even put the deposit down before we had ever been to Turkey. We had never been chancer's so I can only say that we had a blip in our thought processes.
The plus side - the villa was well built and on a plot which was the best of the 14 in the complex giving an unobstructed view for 180 degrees of the Gulluk bay.
Everything worked out great but we set a ten year review and possible sale, which worked out very well.
Would I recommend an off plan purchase?
Absolutely not. I'm with Steve on this.
We were lucky. Some of our neighbours weren't.
If it takes months to do your research, please do it.
