Balabanlı is a small village on famous Kaz Mountains and it protects its natural stonehouse texture very nicely. About 10 kms from central ASSOS. Villagers are very welcoming and friendly. Even though it was mid of the september weather was amazing. When the sunsets things were becoming so silent at our terrace except the bells of the sheeps. It is unforgetable. With the view, garden, terrace, and rooms Stonehouse&NaturalLife is an amazing place to stay. And which makes it more beautiful is Mr Okan. He is always thinking of you from one step further. You will be very surprised when you see him. Helpful, friendly, welcoming and sincere personality. It was an amazing vacation for both me and my wife. Looking forward to come back.

As the other references attest to, staying with Okan is a special opportunity to experience life in a Turkish Aegean village with the wonderful hospitality that goes with it. I'll note a few examples of his family's hospitality here: Since we traveled to Okan's by public transportation, he generously picked us up from the nearest town and also rented his motorbike out to us so we could explore. Eating breakfast at his home was also delightful - allowing us to get to know his lovely wife and daughter more! The accommodation is fully stocked with all of the necessary kitchen and bathroom items - demonstrating forethought and making the stay even more comfortable. Anyone looking to get away, hit the beach, and enjoy a Turkish breakfast or two will have a memorable vacation here.

I can't thank Okan enough for being such an excellent host. He has taken care of all our needs, from completion of booking until safe arrival back to our home. We were also lucky enough to meet the locals of the village, and neighbors are very sweet as well, occasionally sending us treats :) The stone house is situated in a small and quiet village. It has a nice garden that has been taken good care of, with blooming flowers and a great view on upper floor, which is where we stayed. The studio includes a small kitchen sufficient to cook breakfast and has a great bathroom that beats hands down any hotel room in this price range. The studio was very clean, which is probably the most important prerequisite for any booking. Okan is also renting the attached fully equipped 2 bedroom 2 floor house for larger families or groups, that I recommend as well. It is restored from an old Greek stone house, with original wooden floors, tiles and fireplace. I cannot recommend enough Okan's place. I know where to stay now when I visit Ayvacik/Behram region!

Excellent hosting and sweet home! Ozgur and Okan are very kind and good-hearted people. They designed their house very eco-friendly and they have a great communication with local people. Home is located in a small village ,Balabanlı. It is 10 minutes far way from Behramkale, Assos and 20 minutes from Babakale. Between Behramkale and Babakale, road is full of peace with lots of green. It is also so close to Sokakagzı to swim and taste local food. We experienced a real village life full of nice foods and lovely nature. We loved Ozgur, Okan, their daughter Nihan and their welcoming neighbours Arzu, Ersin and Sadiye Teyze We definitely recommend you this experience to the respect of nature and humanity!

Okan is a perfect host as he explained us everything that we need in Ayvacık. The house was so clean and the area is quite and peaceful. You can reach easily to Assos or the other touristic places by Ayvacik Birlik. But if you have a car you have much to see as there are such a lovely places nearby. The sea which is 10 mins far from the house is beautiful. Thank you Okan for this perfect hosting and hope to see you soon!
