Daughter moved to Hisaronu

My daughter moved to Hisaronu in April to be with her Turkish boyfriend who runs The New St Nicholas Garden Hotel and Summer Time bar
We went for the first time last week and enjoyed it there
Having spoke to a few ex pats there discovered how cheap it is to live there.
So are there any pit falls ? I only heard positives about the place
We may consider going in a few years if they stay there and rent out our UK property to give us an income

Re: Daughter moved to Hisaronu

Hello & welcome to the forum

There are things to be wary about. Avoid buying off-plan. Make sure there are no debts on the property make sure it has TAPU & Habitation Certificate.

It is a good idea to rent first to see if it suits you.

There will be plenty of members who will come along and offer you a wealth of useful advice.

Some of the smaller resorts are fabulous ın the summer but ın wınter they become ghost towns as do the out of town sıtesi where many expats retıre too.The bus servıce to these places ıs often reduced too ın wınter and people have found ıt quıte ısolatıng.Wıth hındsıght ı dont thınk ı would buy agaın ın turkey--better to rent.

Re: Daughter moved to Hisaronu

Having lived in Hisaronu and Ovacik, I can tell you that it maybe a lively place in summer, but winter it is a ghost town, with buses into Fethiye few and far between. I live now in Tasyaka which is a 20-25 mins walk into the centre of Fethiye. Everthing is open all year and buses to Fethiye and Calis are frequent and cheaper (2ytl) as opposed to Hisaronu which is 3.50ytl. In Tasyaka, there is a market every saturday and good local shops ( Bim, Sok, A101). Another thing I have found is that rents are cheaper here than Hisaronu and Ovacik.

Re: Daughter moved to Hisaronu

There are a few places called Hisaronu.

If its the one adjoined to Ovacik- god help her. Tackyville supreme which is not just closed/ dead out of season- much of it is dismantled and removed.

Each to their own but for me- dreadful place

Re: Daughter moved to Hisaronu

Many of the seasonal workers go home for winter and many live in the East which for a Yabanci is not always easy. My advice to you and your daughter is make sure you have done your research before you make any great change to your life. Remember this is not europe and the customs etc are far different and a two week holiday will not prepare you for living here. That said İ love living here and would hate to have to leave.

Really have to agree with Philip if this is the Hisaronu you are talking about. Not much Turkish about it but everyone to their own.

Re: Daughter moved to Hisaronu

Hi Suecoo66 welcome to the forum where you are lıkely to get a mıxed bag of advıce and most wıll tell you its best to rent ..and i feel the same

İf the Hisaronu you mean is the one between Fethiye and Olu then Phillip is right ..its a wasteland come winter..over the top hedonistic in the summer.

Youve already said you would rent your place in the Uk and this is the best thing if you are serious about coming to live here..dont burn your bridges

i love Turkey ive lived here a long time but the image taken away by tourists having had a great holiday is not the real picture and the country is going through a transition period with some political uncertainty..
Anyway best of luck whatever you decide ..but cool head is always best

Re: Daughter moved to Hisaronu

You should also read up on how we keep warm durıng the wınter and theres lots of ınfo on thıs forum ıf you use the search button top rıght of page.The cold here ın turkey can be ıntense and really get ın your bones.Very few ıf any propertıes have damp courses or ınsulatıon and many are ıntended only for summer use--turks would never dream of lıvıng ın these ın wınter.

Re: Daughter moved to Hisaronu

Before you consider a move to Turkey please read up on the residency visa/holiday visa regulations. You will need to meet the criteria for a permit and will also need to reapply each year. Medical insurance is a necessity and might be costly if you have pre-existing conditions. Work out all the costs involved before committing to anything. It might be worth thinking about extended holidays instead of a permanent move.
