Overview

About the property

5 Bedrooms 6 Bathrooms, Interior Designed, Sensational Views, 2 Pools, Gardens.

Villa Babylon has an extraordinary setting, perched high above the area to the east of the Olu Deniz seaside resort, providing sensational views of the mountains that reach, on clear days, as far as those that enclose the Gulf of Fethiye. Terraced gardens surround the property, with Citrus, Peach, Fig and Pomegranate trees. A walled garden screens the limestone paved pools area. It is a dream choice for large groups and extended families, particularly those that relish the idea of an outdoor lifestyle - somewhere not just to stay but to really enjoy. Recently upgraded, its design, size, elevation and amenities make it the number one choice in Olu Deniz with five individually designed bedrooms (including two Master Suites) five bathrooms, a guest rest-room, a Family Room, a magnificent Media Lounge, extensive indoor and outdoor dining and lounging areas, balconies, terraces and all with spectacular mountain views.

Our guests return year after year, our reviews speak for themselves - if you are looking for a luxurious, five star stay, be our guest. We take care of every detail of your stay.

The highlight of the property is undoubtedly the outdoor living spaces. The fragrant flowers of Orange trees and a collection of exotic Palms fill the lovingly-maintained garden which is designed to provide numerous, tranquil seating areas and play spaces for children. The pool area is a sun basked focal point – a Whirlpool seating 10 with a gentle water-fall that cascades into the main pool. A further, sun-set facing, landscaped terrace complete with Weber Gas Barbecue presents the perfect space for an ‘al fresco’ lifestyle.

Villa Babylon is both contemporary and stylish, offering true luxury, real comfort, enhanced security, great service, and wonderful, complimentary amenities, all just moments from Turkey's most famous beach and lagoon.

UNIQUE BENEFITS of staying at Villa Babylon;

LOCATION - Olu Deniz stretches for miles inland but Villa Babylon is nearest the beach and just a 5 minute walk to the beach shuttle (5 mins to the beach). You can walk to local shops & restaurants and taxis are easy to call.

SPACE - A total of 5 Bedrooms and 5.5 Bathrooms means no queuing, 2 Lounges, Open plan Marble Kitchen, Terraces and Balconies distributed over four floors. Two Master Suites - Each on separate floors for added privacy, individually designed, featuring sitting areas & spa-inspired ensuite marble bathrooms stocked with complimentary Organic toiletries. All rooms feature top quality, feather bed mattresses , bed linen and blackout curtains.

VIEWS - It is the largest and most elevated villa in a small exclusive condominium set behind high, hand crafted, stone walls, in magnificent mature gardens ensuring the best views, complete pool privacy and all day sunshine.

COMPLIMENTARY AMENITIES - Wine, Beers, Tea, Coffee, Filtered Water & Ice, Fully Stocked Kitchen, Personalised Luxury Welcome Hamper, Farmers Market Fruits & Vegetables, Afternoon Tea Delivery, Mini Bar with Drinks & Snacks ...all included in the rates.

TECHNOLOGY - Media Room - 70' screen and 3D surround sound system, Apple TV, DVD, Playstation 3. Airplay Sound Bar, State of the art Central Heating, Hot Water (1000 Litre Tanks) and Pool Heating Systems make the villa usable all year around, a rarity in Olu Deniz. To reduce our carbon footprint, 6 Solar Panels help heat the water in Summer. High speed Wifi, Office Supplies - iPad & Wireless Printer also supplied.

FAMILY FRIENDLY - Cots, Highchair, Stair Guards on request. A private child friendly Garden, all on one level with no steps and a Whirlpool with Seats make it easier to look after children. Lots of outdoor and indoor spaces for children to play - games and toys provided.

POOL HEATING - The Pool and Massage Pool are tiled with Emerald Crystal Glass reputed to have healing properties and can be heated to 45C. A heated pool is a rarity in Turkey and important to consider when comparing villas, indeed, many villas have pool heating systems designed only to remove the 'chill' not heat the water. Pool Heating is charged at cost and depends on the time of year.

QUALITY; The villa has been totally refitted to European standards (including the electricty supply which is industrial strength) with marble finishes in almost every room and premium furnishings and fittings. A fully stocked, Gourmet Kitchen features a 7 meter marble countertop and oversized, top brand appliances including, a Six Ring Gas Hob, Double Electric Ovens and US style Fridge Freezer - catering for large, family groups is easy. A fabulous stone-paved BBQ terrace complete with an American Weber Gas Barbecue is located just off the kitchen for ease of use. Also supplied; Juice Machine, Citrus Squeezer, Coffee Grinder, Food Processor, Coffee Percolator, Hand Blender, Liquidizer, Popcorn Maker and Microwave Oven.

SECURITY - The villa has an enhanced security system including a 24 Hour Response Alarm, 5 Camera CCTV System, 2.5 meter Double Perimeter Walls and Doors, a Single Point Entry, Lockable, 2 meter high Gate and an Emergency Back Up Power System which in the event of an electricity supply cut, runs the Alarm, CCTV and Wifi Systems for 6 hours. Additionally, the villa has two Key Operated Safes and Double off-street Secure Parking.

SERVICE - Villa Babylon is professionally run and offers outstanding service - No detail is too small, no request too large.

Villa Babylon enjoys a 5 star Home Away rating and is continually renovated and improved for each season. I believe these features are why other guests have described Villa Babylon as "simply perfect".

About Fergal Prendergast

I live in Brazil and try to visit the wonderful Olu Deniz area as often as I can. I qualified in both Hotel Management & Graphic Design and having spent years managing five star, boutique hotels, am inherently in tune with the needs of international guests and take great pleasure in providing a beautiful place to stay.

I manage Villa Babylon passionately and professionally and go to great lengths to ensure your stay is the very best. I am happy to work around specific requests and offer a full online 'Concierge Service' for any special occasions. Your holiday is of the utmost importance to me and I very much look forward to welcoming you.

Fergal Prendergast purchased this villa in 2004

Why Fergal Prendergast chose Lycian & Turquoise Coast

Guests often wonder what Olu Deniz offers in comparison to other coastal resorts and the simple answer is one of the World’s best beaches and a much wider choice of things to do. It is a family-friendly holiday resort with several amazing beaches, paragliding & water sports, yachting, ancient ruins and has both authentic rural villages and tourist villages. Best of all, it is within easy reach, just under an hour from Dalaman International airport and 15 minutes from Fethiye, a bustling market town and marina which hosts many cultural events. Both The Blue Lagoon, (Turkey's most photographed beach) and The Lycian Way (voted among the Top 10 Walks of the World) are just five minutes away. There are a thousand things to do in Olu Deniz or nothing at all, either way Villa Babylon has it covered.

I chose Villa Babylon for its location; a small mountainside community made up of villas and small Turkish farms, yet within a few minutes walk of a Beach Shuttle Bus stop. With mountains towering behind and super views to the front, all day sunshine and mature gardens, it is the perfect setting. I redesigned the house and interiors in a welcoming, modern style with cooling white backdrops and colourful fabrics, funky furniture mixed with antiques to create a unique, contemporary, Turkish environment. If space, style & luxurious marble finishes are what you are looking for, then this is the place for you. My aim is to provide the best villa experience in Olu Deniz.

The journey takes about seven minutes and costs approximately 1.00 (UK). This service will also take you to Fethiye, a nearby bustling town with a large market and supermarket. Car hire is optional but recommended if you wish to make day trips to the many nearby sights or ruined cities such as Ephesus. It's inexpensive and available locally.

Villa Babylon review:

  • 5 of 5

I give a 5 star rating to this property!!

From the time of our arrival(and prior to that, the booking and prep questions) until departure after a 2 week stay I sincerely say that it was a great deal!!

We arrived very late( at 2am), but despite that the manager of the property (Dileck) was there to greet us and go through all the details of the villa with us... She and her son were very helpful and always available for any minor issues that arose and Always resolved them quickly.

The villa itself was extremely beautiful , was as advertised on the web site , with very clean,large 5 bedrooms/ very large and well stocked kitchen(spices and many other daily cooking needs provided, with even milk,juice etc) in the fridge, which was truly a surprise! We didn't need to make a trip to the grocery store for breakfast our first morning!

The property/ swimming pool ,etc. were spotless and a pool man came daily to clean and water the exquisite little garden in the back.

I give my overall stay there a10++ rating.

I should also add that there was a nice guide to local restaurants ,etc. provided.... We tried at least 4-5 on that list and all were great! Our favorite was the Cin Bal garden restaurant in Kayakoy.

Lots of interesting outings available like Saklikent( a canyon about 30 km away with white water rafting and hiking)

I would recommend getting a rental car(the owner helped arrange a delivery to our villa ). The owner also arranged for a driver to get us at the airport as our late arrival would have made it difficult to have found the villa in the middle of the night)

I would ,without hesitation, recommend this rental to family or friends!!

Another wonderful stay at Villa Babylon!

  • 5 of 5

It is hard to do a review about our stay at Villa Babylon and not sound completely over the top and unbelievable about how perfect the Villa, the location and of course Fergal, who is absolutely the best is! However, I will try ....

1. luxurious accommodation, easily 5 star rating. Everything you need with beautiful touches and design of the Villa.

2. Privacy and importantly close to local amenities, beautiful beach and stunning Lagoon.

3. Nothing is too much to ask!

Fergal really wants you to have the best time and he will literally do anything to ensure your stay at the Villa and your holiday experience is perfect! If there is anything you are interested in doing, trips etc he will organise. He has a great directory at the Villa which you can dip into, which has tons of information about the area. Feel free to ask him questions, he is so easy to contact . If you need anything, it will be done without fuss and always with care.

All I can say is that we have booked up again for next year! As a family we find that Villa Babylon is perfect for us to stay in. We have been coming back for years. Why change, when we have everything we could possibly want and there is still so much to explore ?

Thank you again Fergal, PERFECT ! X

Thanks a lot Fergal:) Your hospitality and Villa Babylon was great. We had a beautiful vacation with our family and our cat. Fergal's kindness and attention made us very happy, especially surprise cakes were amazing. We are also pleased for the location that is very quite and central for staying without car. You will be glad for staying Babylon with every little details and kind thoughts. Everything is 5+ stars:)

The stuff of dreams!

  • 5 of 5

Fergal was quite simply the most amazing host ever... He went out of his way to make sure everything was absolutely perfect and as a result me and my team got nothing short of it. Communication was clear and fast from the very beginning and he helped organise every tiny request I might have thrown at him without any if's and but's. Villa Babylon itself is a taste of paradise you will struggle to forget for a long time, your heart and mind will yearn to return to bask in it's beauty inside and out. The pool and Jacuzzi were sublime and the wonderful spacious and air conditioned interior was a Godsend. It had everything we needed and the welcome hamper, fully loaded mini bar and fresh luxury towels left us all feeling like VIP's. The location is a short stones throw away from a line of awesome restaurants, banks, shops and supermarkets who all offer incredible value for money, we hired a car which was also organised by Fergal (as well as airport transfers and a bunch of other activities) so we were able to hit the hidden beaches and tons of other nearby places with comfort and ease to aid us in our research. I can't recommend this enough! There is so much more I can say about Villa Babylon and Fergal, but I'll cut it short here and just say you cannot go wrong with this choice. With first class service from the host that will put high end hotels to shame, your stay here will be the stuff of dreams! =D

Just Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Not many places can be found that are as accommodating as this one. With a stunning view and beautiful home, we were more than pleased. Fergal is by far one of the best hosts i have experienced. Welcoming, friendly, and truly giving at times. He even brought us some sweets as it was my birthday. I could not rate this stay high enough.

Highly recommend for big groups

  • 5 of 5

There are two special things with this villa, firstly the villa itself and the villa owner.

The villa is furnished and maintained to a very high standard, as high as a five star hotel. Every room is immaculate and very comfortable to sleep in. The bathrooms are solid and the entire villa and bathrooms are marbled making it very cool in the extreme heat of the summer. We made full use of all the facilities such as the kitchen which is huge. the double oven and huge fridge were an extra bonus as we made breakfast for a large group (13 in total).

The communal areas are very relaxing, expecially the downstairs lounge which has apple tv, a huge 70 inch screen for late evenings when relaxing.

the pool is the one of the best i have ever used. the pool heating is excellent though is probably not needed in the summer months of july but for kids it made it a lot more comfortable. You can use the pool in the night as the lighting is brilliant and you feel very safe. the pool is cleaned daily making it nice to use in the early morning.

Even the air conditioning is top of the range, every room and communal area has sumsung air con which is a life saver and just makes the whole experience amazing. When we were out we couldnt wait to get back to the villa and make the most of it.

the villa is also very private, in that the pool area is secluded and the entrance is private with a large gate. the security of the villa is also excellent and simple to use, just one click to turn on security and one click to turn off.

most taxis and companies seem to know about villa babylon so it was never a problem getting home although taxis dont ever use sat nav so sometimes we just navigated the driver ourselves as villa babylon is on google maps.

and last but not least, the villa owner. Fergal was an absolute star. he really made the whole trip smooth and comfortable. we only had to go to the supermarket once for very specific food items that we wanted as we were a large group but all the basic needs like cereal, biscuits even drinks were already in a basket or mini fridge.

He took me to the money exchange place, helped me buy a sim, reserved restaurants organised transfers and so much more. The trip would not have been as good as it was without his involvement and we cant thank him enough.

Owner's Response: Thanks Gulum, it was a real pleasure to meet you and your family and I am delighted I had the chance to host you on your first trip to Turkey. I really could not have asked for a better review - thank you so much. You touch on a lot of things that guests may not notice by looking at other villa adverts with misleading marketing spiel and stretched photos. Villa Babylon has been rebuilt from the ground up to European standards - one bathroom for each bedroom, top range appliances, industrial strength electricity, the latest technology, enhanced security, silent air conditioners, feather beds, American BBQ Terrace, acres of space inside and out, total privacy, all day sunshine and a house fully stocked on arrival. Real luxury is having someone think of everything before you even think of it yourself - our aim is to make sure you enjoy every second of your holiday and I look forward to welcoming you back to Villa Babylon in the not too distant future.
