Peace and tranquility

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to these apartments, last year we stayed in The Garden Apartment, this year we were in The Garden Lodge. The location of these apartments in Kayakoy is beautiful, peaceful and tranquil. The apartments themselves are very clean, well maintained and equipped to a high standard. The apartments each have their own outside sitting area that look onto a beautiful garden and pool area. The pool itself is very inviting and there are plenty of comfortable sun loungers and sun umbrellas. Some days we found it very hard to drag ourselves away from the peace and tranquillity of the pool and apartment to venture out. Kayakoy itself has a very laidback charm and there are plenty of eating options just a short walk away. The owner of these apartments, Tommy, is friendly and on hand to help should you need advice. Highly recommended and we look forward to returning.

Fantastic all round!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for five nights in this beautiful apartment. We arrived late in the evening and were welcomed by Tommy and his family who sorted us a late reservation in a restaurant just round the corner. Everyone we met here was so friendly and helpful & each evening we were able to try out a different local restaurant - all within walking distance - and all absolutely lovely. The apartment itself is in such an idyllic setting, with a gorgeous, quiet swimming pool surrounded by stunning greenery and views of the ghost town. The apartment has everything you need. The local food shop is within easy walking distance. We hired a car which was brilliant and Tommy sorted this for us. We also went on Tommy's boat trip for the day visiting Paradise beach and the waterfall. The food was great on the boat too. We really couldn't recommend this place enough.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

You can't fail to fall in love with Kaya Village and the Garden is the perfect place to stay if you want to feel part of village life. Everyone is so welcoming - so much so I now feel like an adopted member of the Ozturk family and can't wait to return. I'm especially pleased that a welcome pack of bread, water etc. is now included. Thank you everyone and see you soon :-)

You won't be disappointed

  • 5 of 5

We decided to visit the peaceful Turkish village of Kayakoy again for our summer holiday after falling in love with it on a previous stay. A quick search on Owners Direct and up popped this little gem. Excellent communication when booking - we had replies to our emails within a few hours - sometimes minutes, which made booking so stress free.

We arrived fairly late in the evening, but the charismatic host Tommy popped his head in to greet us and make sure we had everything we needed. The accommodation is brilliant, it has everything you need - including a washing machine (brilliantly handy for helping to keep the luggage to a minimum when booking cheap flights!) and it's spotlessly clean. The pool area is stunning - with views from the very comfy sun beds of the ghost village, and just the odd dragonfly or bird to keep you company!

Whilst you're staying here you have access to the families (huge!) vegetable patch - which was fantastic - lots of fresh tomatoes, peppers, sweetcorn, herbs etc, you just pop over the wall and help yourself.

Tommy and all of his family make you feel so welcome and are always on hand if you need help or tips on where to eat or visit (highly recommend Tommy's sailing trip!). If you're looking for peace and quiet, in a beautiful location, surrounded by stunning scenery, amazing local restaurants and friendly locals then you won't be disappointed - book while you can!

Total Chill

  • 4 of 5

We had nearly 3 weeks of total relaxation, sun and great sight seeing.

Kaya village is a dream and the people are so friendly.

The Garden Appt was adequate for our stay and nice and cosy. The pool was great and we spent a lot of time enjoying it. The cost is well worth it considering the prices of villas in the village.

The main thing that was missing was the small welcome parcel when we arrived. We arrived at 3am in the morning and no milk, bread etc was available in the appt. This would be a nice touch to add and would be appreciated by future guests.

Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Kaykakoy and we were not let down. Clean, comfortable accommodation in a perfect setting. The garden and pool really are idyllic, private and with great views over to the ghost village. The welcome and care from the family is great and nothing is too much trouble.

There are plenty of places to eat in the village, food and service are brilliant and the locals are very friendly. There are also little shops, fruit and veg stalls and a lovely bakery in the village within walking distance of the property.

This time we enjoyed walking, cycling, sea kayaking, visiting a few of the local historical sites and of course visits to the local beaches. The holiday would not have been complete without a day out on Tommy's boat Deniz Bey and again the crew looked after us as if we were royalty.

Will we go back a resounding YES.

If you want a peacful holiday with no pressure then this is the place to visit.

Tesekkur ederim Tommy & Family :)

Beautiful beaches nearby, Gemiler beach is just 5km by dolmus/taxi/rental car or walking, a traditional beach from which you can explore St Nicholas Island. The famous turquoise blue beach of Olu Deniz is just 9km by dolmus/taxi/rental car or walking (footpath is part of the old Lycian Way). Cold water bay is 40 minutes walk across the hill from Kaya Valley. All usual facilities available at the beaches in Gemiler and OluDeniz.


Nearest airport is Dalaman. Approx 1hr drive. Local bus services and taxis are excellent, so car hire is not essential but can be arranged. Airport transfer/ car hire can be arranged.


The village cente of Kaya is only 5 mins walk. The main bustling harbour/market town of Fethiye is 10 mins drive (8km) Well worth a visit for the food & shopping. Hisaronu 3km, a resort with plenty of bars and restaurants. Olu Deniz is the main beach area (6km) with a great selection of watersports, beachside cafes, bars and restaurants. Boat trips can be arranged. Further afield but all within easy driving distance are,Saklikent Gorge and the river Delta at Dalyan with its Lycian rock tombs.

Further Details:

Kaya Village has many wonderful local bars, BBQ restaurants and a couple of wine houses. It's very popular with walking enthusiasts and is on Lycian way. A couple of local supermarkets sell essentials and there are larger outlets and fresh produce markets in Hisaronu and Fethiye. Horse riding is wonderful way to explore the surrounding area and nearby are plenty of activities such as paragliding, micro lighting and scuba diving and Quad Biking. We also offer a Blue Bays daily boat trip from Olu deniz on our wonderful sailing boat, Deniz Bey, there is a maximum of 30 people on board and Captain Tommy will make sure you have the best day out!
