Guestbook comments from the manager

Rented the villa mehsan through Turkevi Ltd, from first enquiry in February to the day we handed the keys back to Turkevi the whole experience was faultless.

The villa is just as described, excellently managed by Turkevi team: spotlessly clean, well equipped, good location to catch the afternoon breeze and a short walk to the town and river.

The pool area is secluded and that's where our party of up to 9, it varied over the 3 weeks with different family members from 55years to 18 years, spent our days and evenings.

We took a private 12 Island boat trip with lunch and lots of stops for snorkelling with Styx travel - a must do experience.

3 of our group went diving for the day with euro dive in Dalyan, 2 are experienced divers and one went along to swim and snorkel - they had a great day and were impressed with euro dive.

Have had a number of holidays in Dalyan but this was the best experience in terms of villa, management company and tours and family company. are now also Dalyan fans

I will tell it as we found it and leave you to make your mind up about this villa.

We arrived at the villa very late where we met our respective daughters and partners. We had a few drinks in the delightful Kosc by the pool and then went to bed without unpacking, a job for the morning we thought. It was then that we noticed that half of every wardrobe was locked and to make matters worse the dorm that opened protruded into the remaining space so that entry into the unlocked half was somewhat limited. We had come to Turkey for my daughter's wedding and so we had suits and "posh frocks" as well as normal holiday clothes so this arrangement was most unsatisfactory, it was actually unacceptable. Had we known this was going to be the case we would not have taken the villa, in the same way we wouldn't have chosen a villa with shared pool and outside facilities, it just wouldn't work. There was nowhere in the villa details on the website that mentioned this and the management company were equally unaware of this situation. They did try to sort this out : they called the owner who was in the Netherlands twice to try to resolve this problem. One solution would have been to take the locks off and move the clothes and things into storage whilst we were there but this was deemed to be unacceptable even though they were quite happy to take our money in full. However the owners would not agree to this and the company brought a couple of clothes rails. Problem was there was no room for these so it was a non-starter anyway. To make matters worse some of the wardrobes had spare duvets, pillows and blankets stashed in them, not really necessary in temperatures in the 30s.

We stayed here 3 days and then the management company moved us to another villa which was infinitely better for our needs.

Let me give you a tour of the villa so that you can see whether it would do for you, ignoring the locked wardrobes. The top of the villa was where my sister stayed. It was en-suite but apart from a chest of drawers there was nowhere to hang any clothes but some hooks on the back of the door. Bear in mind we were here for a wedding and needed somewhere to hang clothes. There were two beds in the room but no curtains to the window. On the floor below there were two double rooms and a twin bedded room and one shower room/toilet between them. As you can imagine you could potentially have 6 people wanting to use that bathroom. The full review can be seen in Facebook, not enough space

Owner's Response: I agree that there was an issue for your stay regarding the wardrobe space. Once reported to us on your 2nd day we tried to rectify this, the owner did not want us to remove his possessions so we obtained clothes rails, as you say this was not satisfactory as there was not really enough space for these to stand. On the 3rd day we moved you to a more expensive villa at no extra cost to yourselves. You make the point about the family bathroom for all 6 of you to wait to use, the number of bathrooms are clearly stated on the property description. I do not think that the small chest you mention in the entrance hall would do anything to mar someones holiday. With regards to us moving you to another villa, when a member of staff passed, the garden was overload with at least over 25 people with a Turkish wedding band playing, you did mention that you were having a few people round for drinks, but the contract for the villa is for 10 people. You did not advise us that you were having the whole wedding party round to the villa. We did not come round the next day to mention to you that this goes against our contract. Its a shame that some points in your review on here and on Facebook are quite petty.

This was our 4 th holiday in Dalyan and it was the best:

The villa is all that is described and more, adequately coped with various family members who came and went during the 3 weeks. For a few days there were 9 of us ranging from 18 - 55 years.

The location is wonderful to catch the afternoon breeze around the secluded pool and a short walk to the river and town.

Turkevi ltd are superb in providing excellent customer care and management of the property which is spotlessly clean and very well maintained.

Faultless and highly recommended.

Styx travel organised a private 12 Island boat trip with lunch and lots of stops for snorkelling - a must do.

3 divers in our party went diving with euro dive in Dalyan - they were very impressed with their day..

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Dalaman at 30 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : at 300 Metres Nearest Restaurant : at 300 Metres Nearest Beach : Iztuzu at 12 Kilometres Car: not necessary


The small town of Dalyan has a wonderful location on a river which connects a large inland lake to the Mediterranean Sea. Iztusu Beach offers 6km of white sand, safe swimming, and no crowds. This is a conservation area so there are no beach front developments. You can reach the beach by boat or by bus, both of with are great experiences.


Dalaman Airport can now be accessed from most UK airports and transfer time to the villa takes 25 minutes. Transfers can easily be arranged in a minibus from our service people.


Iztuzu Beach 20 mins by boat or bus.

Ortaca 15 mins by car.

Dalaman airport 30 mins by car.

Sarigerme 20 mins by car.

Kaunos 15 min walk.

Further Details:

The ancient city of Caunos (3,000 yrs BC) is a 15 minute walk away from Dalyan and has only recently begun to be excavated. There are a variety of excellent river-side restaurants which often provide views of the famous Lycian rock tombs, a fabulous setting for an evening meal. There are other more energetic activities such as white water rafting, kayaking, scuba diving, snorkeling, and horseback riding. A journey to the lake with the local boatmen, is the best way to visit the natural mudbaths and sulphur springs. The beach is rated by some as one of the top ten beaches of the world. Iztuzu Beach is 6km of golden sand, and the boat journey through the beautiful reed beds to the beach costs 8 Lira (about £3).
