About Rod Canning

We purchased the villa in 2011 after first coming to Dalyan on holiday in 2007 and returning at least once every year. Dalyan is family orientated, small and friendly and our daughters love coming here and enjoy exploring the town together where they feel safe and secure. We consider ourselves to be very fortunate in having discovered this unique and beautiful part of Turkey.

For your peace of mind the villa is managed by King Emlak whose office is only a 5 minute walk away. They care for the villa 24/7 and in the unlikely event you experience any problems they are on hand, extremely efficient and multi lingual.

Rod Canning purchased this villa in 2011

Why Rod Canning chose Dalyan

We had visited many places in the Mediterranean and Turkey but we fell in love with this beautiful part of Turkey as it offered everything in one place.

An outstanding safe sandy beach (home to the Caretta turtles) - either a short inexpensive boat trip or minibus ride away.

The beautiful inland lake with the hot springs and mud baths.

Riverside walks with views of the Tombs and historic Kaunos

The small bustling town only a 8 minute walk away with all its choice of restaurants, shops etc

What makes this villa unique

The villa whilst only 8 minutes walk from the town is located in a quiet cul -de-sac with unspoilt views over pomegranate orchard and the mountains in the distance.

In the evening the sun sets over the mountains and you can sit on your balcony, relaxing with a glass of wine or sarap ( as it is known in Turkey! ) and enjoy the spectacular sunsets!

The large and spacious open plan ground floor and good sized bedrooms ensures the villa is cool and airy even on the hottest days.

Swim in the pool at any time day or night - it is exclusively for you!

Fabulous Villa - A Real Home From Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this lovely villa. The location was great .. not too far from town and in a quiet cul-de-sac. The whole process of booking was straightforward, communication from the owners Diana & Rod as well as their managing agents Sarah and Hannah was fabulous. Sarah came to see is the day after our arrival to make sure we had settled in and to give us information about the area and things to do. As we are regular visitors to Dalyan we didn't need too much information but if its your first visit she will be able to book trips and tell you about local facilities etc. The villa itself is a real home from home. Really spacious and provides everything you need. The kitchen was well equipped for those times you want to eat at home, but there are some fabulous restaurants in the town and on the way into town. The pool and garden areas are lovely and were tended to every day. There is also a great supermarket just up the road. Couldn't really fault this villa ... you will love your stay here and Dalyan is just perfect .. our favourite place to be. And a big thank you to Mustafa who collected us from the airport and took us back again .. great service.

Beautiful villa, wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in a number of villas before in Dalyan but never wanted to return to the same one for whatever reason. This one was different.

In a very quiet cul-de-sac, 10 mins walk away from the main town, it's got everything you need for a wonderful holiday. The local supermarket is literally a 3 minute walk away and, if you don't fancy the walk to town, it'll cost you less than £3 in a taxi.

The villa itself was immaculate inside and out - the pool is a perfect size, the garden very private and the swing seat proved incredibly popular with our daughter. The villa is modern, spacious and - as is very important with teenage children - the Wifi worked well and was fast!

I'd more than happily recommend this villa if you are lucky enough to be holidaying in Dalyan. The owners are incredibly helpful, were very easy to deal with and made the whole process from start to finish, a pleasure.

Excellent villa, perfect for a relaxing holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Villa Zuleyha is clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. It is in an ideal location close to the town centre yet quiet because it's in a cul-de-sac. All the facilities mentioned in the description are spot on, we had everything we needed, the swing seat on the verandah was fought over on a daily basis! We had such a relaxing time, it's perfect to unwind, read by the pool or stay inside when the heat got too much, the adjustable air-conditioning was much appreciated!

We (family of four) have been to Dalyan many times so have sampled quite a lot of the restaurants, on the recommendation in a previous review we tried Begonville House on the last day , our only regret is that we left it till the end, excellent food, well presented and friendly service, shame we didn't have the chance to go again! Turn right out of the cul-de-sac and follow the road till the end, bear right and it's on the left.

Back to the villa, the pool and garden are maintained on a daily basis, much fun was had in the pool,

I would recommend villa Zuleyha to family and friends and would stay there again if the opportunity arose. Rod and Diana are extremely helpful and get back to you promptly with any queries.

Owner's Response: Hi Subiha. We are delighted you enjoyed your holiday in our villa and that it was ideal for you and your family. The swing seat is a real family favourite with us too - I think I may have to get another one! You are never far from a good eating place in Dalyan - there are just so many! Thanks for your great review and please do stay in touch. Regards Rod and Diana

Lovely Villa in a Good Location

  • 5 of 5

Villa Zulheya is in a good location about a 10 minute walk to the centre of Dalyan and a new supermarket has opened less than a 5 minute walk away since I stayed in this area last October, but you have the choice of another 3 on the walk in.

The villa was spotless and everything you needed was catered for a real home from home. The wif fi worked well which my daughter was pleased about. The pool area gets the sun all day and the poolman came every day to clean it and surrounding areas early in the morning.

Transfers were also arranged by Sonuc of King Emlak and if you have any problems (which we didn't) just text him and he will sort it out for you.

We had a chilled out week at Villa Zulheya as the weather was beautiful mostly staying around the villa in the day as this was my third visit this year and going out to eat in the evening. Tried a couple of different restaurants Begonville House which was amazing, easy to find from the villa come out turn right follow the road and bear right at the end it's on the beach road. Worth a visit a change from the usual fayre on offer, the pastas are to die for.

I would definitly stay here again the pool area is not overlooked, very quiet. Exceptionally well looked after villa.

Beautiful villa, ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We loved Villa Zuleyha. It had everything we needed for a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 teenagers) including excellent internet speed (very important for a family of teenagers!). There was a welcome breeze & we spent most days lazing by the pool. My daughter who isn't a sunworshipper spent her days on the swing on the veranda in the shade.

The villa itself was brilliantly equipped and had all the utensils you would ever need in the kitchen. We ate at the villa most lunch times & BBQ'd at least 7 nights. Additionally, the villa was cleaned mid week by a lovely lady and the pool was maintained every morning.

The villa is ideally situated for Dalyan, although we hired a car we didn't really need one. We walked in to Dalyan every day & used the local butchers & supermarkets. The restaurants were lovely & the food reasonably priced, our favourite was Bistro Blue which we visited several times. It's such a shame with what's happening in Turkey at the moment but Dalyan is completely unaffected by Turkey's troubles & it's a shame more people don't visit. My husband had a shave several times while we were there & would wholeheartedly recommend it.

We visited the mud baths (hired a private boat from the harbour) which was excellent value for money & lots of fun was had by the whole family.

Everything was taken care of by King Emlak (including airport transfers) who were very professional & always responded to text messages quickly whilst in Turkey & emails before our arrival.

I would recommend Dalyan & I would definitely recommend this villa.

Owner's Response: We are delighted your holiday was so wonderful and thanks for your fantastic review. We do try very hard to make our villa comfortable and as it is our second home we know how important it is to be self catering so equip the villa with as much as we can to enable our guests to cook if they wish. My daughters love the swing chair as well - it is a fantastic place when is it very hot! Hopefully we will see you again and take advantage of the quieter times Turkey is experiencing at the moment.

Car: not necessary

Special interest holidays:

There is an amazing range of habitats in the local area; from the reed beds north of the town to the Koycegiz Lake. With many species of birds, from White Tailed Eagles to Red-rumped swallows, expert birders and amateurs would struggle not to have a great birding holiday.We canorganise guided walking tours through areas. We manage perfect accommodation for large groups throughout the year, that are great for comfortable relaxation when not out in the wilderness.

Walking groups taking international excursions are aware of the amazing possibilities available to walkers and ramblers in and around Dalyan, Turkey.There are a number of great walks to be done in the local area; from the walk up to Candir and Kaunos over stunning mountains and rock tombs, to the Liquid Amber Fosrets of Dalyan.The Famous Lykian Way walk of 300+km across the southern coast of Turkey, is a trekking holiday for the hardcore (especially in the summer).


Dalyan is best known for its lush greenery, the winding river and a beach which is not just a natural wonder but also won The Times Best Open Space Award in 2010. Famous for the Caretta Caretta turtles. Over 6km of golden sands with access by bus, car and boat there are cafeterias at either end for refreshments but plenty of empty space amongst the dunes to escape to.


The nearest airport is Dalaman which is a 20 minutes drive away. Once in Dalyan car hire is not essential we are very central to town and town itself is small and everything in easy walking distance.


Everything is within walking or cycling distance in Dalyan. This villa is only a 3 minute walk to the nearest supermarket, and a further 5 minutes to local restaurants, bars and cafes and the river. Fethiye and Olu Deniz are 50 minutes drive away. Marmaris is about 75 minutes drive. Both of those towns also have ferries to Rhodes.

Further Details:

Dalyan town itself is compact stretching only a mile in any direction from the centre and is framed by a glorious backdrop of pine clad mountains in every direction. The flatness of town make it a perfect place for walking with children and the elderly and a delight to cycle around. For more active holidaymakers there are forests and hiking hills all within walking distance.

Dalyan is also distinguished by the lack of package tourists though there are still plenty of bars and restaurants to cater for all tastes. If you can’t find the items you want in the shops there is a sweet local market on Saturdays.
