Month of May - Good news to report


Good morning from Good News of 2Base :-)

We try to give you the latest news from Alanya and Turkey. 

We have been lucky in Alanya since for more than 3 weeks now there has not been any confirmed cases of Covid-19. here. 

Obviously we should still be careful, but we can now see that all actions taken have worked really fine. 


We used to have weekend curfews, but these are not lifted for the entire Antalya region. 
In several other regions of Turkey there are still curfews. 

Last weekend also elderly over 65 and youngers under 20 years of age was allowed outside for a walk and fresh air. 
So looking good for them too. 

Shopping malls, smaller shops, hairdressers and beauty salons started to open too. Sure there must use mask and follow strict guidelines but slowly slowly things are getting back to something that we can call normal life.

Turkey has started "Phone Diplomacy" with 70 countries to talk about how tourism from those countries can start to come Turkey. 

The plan is to test test everyone upon arrival to Turkey. The exact plans are still on the drawing board, but it seems positive.
Gasipasa air port is among one of the first airports to be opened for foreign arrivals, so we are hoping to see first international arrivals in June. 

Turkey is also implementing "Healthy tourism standards" which are guidelines and rules for all everyone working within tourism. 

Then to news what you all has waited for.

This weekend we will have Sauna temperatures here and Saturday and Sunday there will 37 degrees :). 

We are still waiting for beaches to open but hopefully they are opening end of the month of ramadan because we miss sun bathing and swimming as much as you too. 


We are very proud of how Turkey has been taking care of this corona crisis and how Turkey has been helped other countries by sending them aids against Corona. 

So soon we will see you again, different countries are starting flights in different time, but we are waiting you all back and bring your friends too:). 
Have a wonderful May 2020 !

A spring like never before


This spring time has been like never before.

Covid-19 virus has turned Alanya into a desert village, at least it sometimes feels like that. 

Markets are open and you need to use mask when you go to shops.

But despite all of this Corona-thing, Mediterranean sea is more beautiful than ever, more turquoise than ever before, weather is like summer at its best, 22-25 degree now.

So how is life here now? 

Most things have changed. Banks and other necessary shops opens at 12.00 and only allows a limited amount of customers at at time. 

Shopping center Alanyum is closed, so are most of shops together with all restaurants, bars and cafeterias. 

All playgrounds, beaches, parks and other public spaces are closed down and wrapped in "do not enter" tape.

This is very different spring to all complexes too. All pools, saunas, gyms and other shared facilities and common areas are closed. 
Lets cross our fingers and hope that some of it can soon open again.

A curfew for all weekends has been implemented for everyone.
So we have to stay at home all weekend, no one is allowed to go out. 
This curfew will probably continue for some time.

In the weekends people normally gather for picnics, but this is no longer possible. 

For those younger than 20 years old or older than 60 of age, the curfew is 7 days a week.

The city of Alanya has done an incredible job during this situation.

While you are stay at home, city workers can bring your shopping's and medicines to your home together with food and bread. 

Street animals are also not forgotten and masks are distributed for free.


Despite all this spring time is coming slowly with thousands roses and fruits. 
Raw almonds are soon ready to be picked up, this is a favorite for many Turkish people who love this bitter fruit.

Nevertheless, we are all well here but of course we would like you too be here with us to enjoy this wonderful spring time in Alanya. 

And please do not worry, we will look after your home here. 
If you have anything in your mind or any worries do not hesitate to contact us :-)

Have a wonderful spring, where ever you will be.

We miss all of you....

Do you need help? Then please let us know...


A lot of Europeans are happy owners of a holiday home in Turkey.

When being a house owner also some obligations and practical task follow. 

This might be anything from payment of utility bills, smaller repairs, keeping an eye out for your property when it is not being used just to mention a few.

Many choose to enter into a service agreement with a local estate agent or property administrator, so that they do not have to worry about or spend valuable holiday time on these practical matters.

Others do think it is a fun experience to visit the local tax office to pay their property tax, to redo silicone joints around windows or renew the household insurance all by themselves.


This last group of home owners are now potentially in a bit of trouble, since no one know when it again will be possible to travel to Turkey.


So here at 2Base Estate Agency we would like to try to help those as much as we can.

Our message is very simple: If you are stuck at home and getting a bit nervous about the fact that you cant travel to Turkey to deal with practical formalities related to your holiday home in Alanya, then you are more than welcome to contact us.

We will then to the best of our ability assist you and your holiday home and of course without any cost to you.

We are on site here in Alanya and as long as we can and the circumstances allows us, we will and can help wherever it is needed.


Remember that in the current situation asking twice is better than not asking for help at all.


Everyone with questions or worries are welcome to contact us via email, chat or on social media channels.

Please share this message to others in your network that might benefit from it.

It is in no ones interest that owners of a holiday home in Turkey run into more trouble than we all already have.

The way things are these days we must all try to help each other as much as we can.

Kind regards
2Base Estate Agency

Corona Virus: An update from 2Base in Alanya


Dear all, 
As the corona virus keeps disrupting everyday life across the globe it seems that the next couple of month will be quite here at our office in Alanya.

Not that we are going anywhere, but we will surely miss the daily visits from you, our beloved customers.

Just as in other parts of Europe also Turkey is slowly moving towards a lock-down situation and it seems that traveling during spring will be impossible.

Our office is still open, but at some point we might also need to work from home and/ or restrict working hours at the office in Alanya.

But just to be absolutely clear...

- We are working hard as always and will continue to do so
- Your property will still be taken care of as always
- We are still reachable just like always via chat, mail, phone or social media

For those of you who wants to follow the situation in Turkey we can recommend the following news sites in English.

Hurryiet Daily News

Anadolu News Agency

Yeni Safak

Daily Sabah

and finally the more independent and less government controlled...

Ahval News

(Please note that in case you are actually in Turkey, Ahval news might not be possible to access due to government restrictions).

Finally we can recommend using CNN Türk for latest updates. 
This site is in Turkish, but Google Translate normally does a pretty good job.

Please stay healthy and safe out there, listen and follow guidelines from local authorities and government.

By doing that we will all be able to see each other again rather sooner than later.

Best wishes
2Base Alanya
