We are a married couple living in England and have been going to Dalyan along with our children, for the past 12 years. We decided to build a home in the sun here because we fell in love with the charm, peaceful tranquility and the freindliness of the peoploe in Dalyan.

A little patch of heaven way out East!
Thank you Gwyn and Peter - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your villa these past couple of weeks. The property is beautifully appointed, spacious, totally private and peaceful - a true holiday haven! We have stayed in many villas on our journeys but this one truly took our breath away on arrival. The property is well equipped, brilliantly maintained (pool maintenance, cleaners and gardeners) and Kaunos (management company) were entirely professional and a credit to themselves. The garden is beautiful and private (and vast!) and the kosk provided an excellent retreat from the sun at its hottest. No hire car required as the villa is within a 15 min stroll on the flat to Dalyan centre with an abundance of shops/restaurants to hand. Only a 25 min transfer from the airport and yet immensely peaceful. The bikes are a great asset and we made the most of them, thank you. We booked onto 6 trips in the end through Kaunos - excellent prices, thoroughly enjoyable and a great way to experience the many delights of Dalyan and surrounding areas. Would highly recommend Kaunos' 12 island boat trip, scuba diving, Koygeciz market, mud bath and thermal springs and the jeep safari. We have truly been bitten by the Dalyan bug and the genuine kindness of the local people and will definitely be looking at a return visit. Thanks again Gwyn and Peter, a true gem of a villa and highly recommended.
What a wonderful villa to spend our two week holiday in. We couldn't have wanted more. The pool was delightful, many an hour spent playing silly games and splashing around. The beds were super comfy and we slept like logs. Dalyan is a great place for a holiday with so much to do and so many resteraunts to choose from. The boat trip to the beach is wonderful. Thank you Peter and Gwyn. We hope to return some time soon.
We are a family of 5 (2 adults & 3 children 17, 14 & 12 yrs). This is our first holiday to Turkey.
Fabulous villa in beautiful garden. The villa was very spacious and homely, everything we needed. Amazing views from balcony, many an evening spent there playing games and enjoying the peace and quiet. Pool large & warm, lots of fun playing water polo. Loved the "tree house" great place to sit in the shade, read a book & supervise children from a safe distance. Kaunos tours rep very friendly & helpful. Great tours booked through this company - moonlight cruise, market visit across the lake, mud baths & 12 island tours. Family favourite was the jeep safari - who knew that getting wet would be so much fun!! Pool man who visited every morning very cheery as were the cleaners & gardeners. Villa in ideal location for peace & quiet. Not overlooked. 15 - 20 minute walk into main strip of Dalyan down quiet roads. An enjoyable walk where we saw turtles, frogs, storks, owls & even a tortoise! Taxis were easy and very cheap costing £2.50 - £3 for family of 5. Dalyan is a beautiful town vibrant, friendly & safe. Too many good restaurants to mention, we never had a bad meal. We all had great fun haggling at the local market and think we picked up some bargains. We also made use of the bikes at the villa which was great for picking up supplies from the local supermarket.
We have enjoyed the holiday & villa so much we are hoping to return again in 2015. This was the first holiday when I haven't heard the dreaded words "Im bored"!!
Many thanks to Gwyn & Pete for a wonderful holiday.
The villa was very well appointed and well kept. The pool, barbecue and garden area are particularly attractive. There are lots of day trips to do in the Dalyan area; beaches, ruins, mud baths, boat trips, something for everyone. The locals were very friendly and the children enjoyed their stay. Nice area.
From the Owner
“We had the villa built by a local builder, because we loved the location and wanted a family home in the sun.”

Dalyan has an excellent selection of supermarkets selling many European foods. Visit the butchers and watch them cut the meat just the way you want it, many bakeries have fresh bread daily, there are a large variety of gift shops - for the men, a visit to the barbers is a must, nothing like a nice relaxing cutthroat shave, shoulder and head massage, the men get really spoilt. For the women a number of hairdressers are located in the centre why not have your hair beaded or try threading! Dalyan also has a newly refurbished Turkish bath which is worth treating yourself to, your skin feels amazing after you have had one.
