Hi everybody :)
I am Serdar, 32 years old and a Food Engineer, after 5 years in the industry I decided gave up my job and move back to Marmaris, for a more relaxed pace of life. Now me and my family manage a eco campsite in the national park Akbuk Bay, Akyaka, Mugla..
The campsite is only 2 minutes from the beach and surrounded by lots of eucalyptus trees and a huge pine forest. There is a calm and peaceful atmosphere here, where you can unplug yourself in one of our hammocks or around the campfire.
We have been rejevenating, repairing our campsite over the last 2 years and now have 7 bungalows, a stone house and spaces for tents and caravans . We also have on site a garden restaurant and bar.
Have you got any interests or talents which you could teach me or the guests? (painting, sports, fishing, yoga etc.)

The crystal clear mediterranean is only minutes away, and you’ll have plenty of time for swimming and snorkelling.
During your day off, you can also visit Akyaka-Köycegiz-Marmaris-Ören-Bodrum, all of which are accessible by shuttle bus in 60 minutes max. There are also opportunities for other activies in the area such as trekking, fishing, boat trip, safari, paragliding, etc.
We are looking for volunteers to help us get the camp ready for guests before and during the season. We need someone to help with the house keeping and another to help with the maintainance of the camp ground, as a handyman. We are also looking for musicans either as an individual or a group (max. 3) .
(room, meals, wifi, washing machine etc.)
We can provide 2 traditional turkish meals a day, eaten with the family and other volunteers. We do not prepare/serve privately gluten-free, raw food and vegan diet meals. However you can make your own food if you wish in the fully equiped kitchen. There is plenty of turkish tea and coffee avaliable and cold soft drinks from the bar.
Volunteers will have a shared room ( either in the house or in a tent in high season) with separate toilet and shower facilities. Couples can stay in their own room if we have available room.
There is a washing machine and plenty of sunshine to do your laundry.
HOW TO GET HERE
The easiest way to get is to fly to Dalaman airport
Get an ‘Havas’ airport shuttle bus to labelled Marmarıs but get off at Akyaka/Gökkova. Tell the drıver "GÖKKOVA YOL AYRIMINDA İNECEĞİM".
Then get a smaller shuttle bus (which turkish name: "Ören-Akbük Turnalı Dolmuşu" )to the bay.
