If you are thinking of visiting Turkey on your next vacation and enjoy staying in exotic locations, you are in for a real treat. If a berth at the world's only floating, rotating hotel doesn't fit the bill, how about a sojourn in your very own private cave. Hidden amongst ancient caves in Cappadocia, you’ll find Yunak Evleri, a 5 star hotel, boasting six cave houses dating back to the 5th and 6th Centuries.

Geographically located in the center of Turkey, Cappadocia is a volcanic formed mountainous region, famous for his "fairy chimneys". In 2000 the cave houses at Yunak Evleri were transformed into luxury accommodation, creating 30 individual and private cave rooms.

Through a labyrinth of narrow passageways, curved stones stairwells and surrounded by cool cave walls you’ll find yourself transported into another world. Each room is decked out in 5 star luxury, with warm hardwood flooring, spacious marble bathrooms, a Swedish jet and stream shower or Jacuzzi, handcrafted Mediterranean furniture and private patios overlooking the Turkish Mesa.

The hotel also joins onto a 19th century Greek Mansion positioned at the foot of the cliffs. At sunset you can enjoy an aperitif on the patio nestled amongst Turkish pillows, a warm outdoor fire and an impressive panoramic view. To finish off the evening, you can organize your very own private candlelight dinner on the adjacent rooftop terrace. All in all, Yunak Evleri is a unique and impressive setting from which you can explore Cappadocia’s natural and man-made wonders.

Wow.....Yes, this would be awesome.

I wouldn\'t mind having a home in a cave but here in Hawaii, the rain seeps through the rocks so the walls and ceiling would have to be waterproofed. We also have a problem with centipeds loving migrating from wet to dry areas. However, a place that is almost always dry, would not present such difficulties.
