Great place fantastic people 5*

  • 5 of 5

We visited in July with 4 adults and 2 kids. The downstairs bedroom was great as my mother-in-law struggles with stairs. Just a short walk to the main town the atmosphere is great all the locals are really helpful and friendly. The air-conditioned rooms were fantastic. Loads of nice restaurants and takeaways nearby but if fancy a night in then the Bbq is a must, there is a butchers nearby which has a great selection. Can't wait for our next visit as we will most certainly be returning 😀򐀊

Villa Kelebek (Turkish word for Butterfly) is an absolutely beautiful, well built, luxurious property and very well equipped with all you could possibly need and more to enjoy your stay.

The carefully chosen modern furnishings throughout the villa make it a real home from home.

Towels are provided for pool use too which saves valuable space in your case and an abundance of acrylic cups and plates are available for safe use outside.

The water cooler sat on the terrace is a very welcome added bonus and something we have never seen in the many villas we have rented over the years, brilliant idea!

The pool is fabulous and was maintained by a polite and unobtrusive man early in the morning and the same with the garden maintenance lady.

The Kosk is a fabulous shady chill out space which we all loved.

Despite being so close to the river the area is just so peaceful and only actually has one immediate ‘neighbour’ on one side.

The location of the villa is just perfect, just a few minutes’ walk takes you to the river with lots of lovely restaurants along the way and only a ten minute stroll took you right into the centre of Dalyan with many more restaurants and bars, also Migros supermarket and various other market shops for all your requirements.....worth mentioning that do take the time to venture up side streets and don’t just stick to the main street in town as there are many really good restaurants that you would probably miss (just one for example is Cargi for the most delicious Pide )

Good, prompt communication from the owner throughout and very helpful agents on hand in Dalyan for peace of mind.

We all enjoyed a truly wonderful and memorable holiday at Villa Kelebek and would most definitely stay again next time we visit Dalyan.

Thank you Denise :)

Brilliant for our family stay

  • 5 of 5

We were impressed with the Owners approach to our booking and on arrival we were not disappointed. Our family members arrived over the first few days and we immediately fell in love with the quality of the property, the garden , the pool and the location. Everything was a short walk away and we took full advantage of the shopping and eating out . Our family reunion went well and we give three cheers to Denise and Sonuc for a great first week in our Turkey meeting point

Villa Kelebek is really lovely set in beautiful surroundings with breathtaking views.

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was in a great location not far from the river or town. It has everything you need for a really comfortable stay, everything was really well organised and maintained by the owners. The Gardens tended to regularly and the pool cleaned daily made it a really pretty and great place to relax, inside was also beautiful and comfortable. It was very close to a couple of our favourite places Istanbul Bar and Sevgi Goslem where the food and pancakes are gorgeous and the owners so kind and friendly. We also went to so many other good restaurants Temsi, Yenners, Lime, Chef, Efe Bar, Mustang, Scarlet to name a few all within easy walking distance from the Villa.

" Amazing Villa, Amazing Holiday"

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this Villa in October 2015.

Only as short transfer from Dalaman Airport, we were greeted at the Airport by a friendly taxi driver and taken directly to the Villa, the most hassle free transfer i have experienced !!

The Villa is immaculate and has everything you could wish for. Top choice for a relaxing holiday.

This high class Villa is in a great location. Ideal for families or large groups.

Private pool was just amazing our girls aged 8 and 10 wanted to jump in as soon as they opened their eyes in the morning !! The pool was cleaned everyday which was great.

Lovely rooms air conditioned and en-suite. There is a downstairs bedroom also which is brilliant.

The location is perfect; close enough to town for eating out and shopping just a few minutes walk along the beautiful riverside, but tucked away peacefully with no disturbances, very comfortable.

If you fancy a night in then the BBQ is great, there is a butchers in the main town who will prepare all the meat for you.

If you don't fancy cooking all the local restaurants do takeaways and delivery's!!

There is a huge chill out room upstairs which was great for the kids to watch DVDs and relax after a fun filled day/night.

Would highly recommend and will be returning in the future.

The overall facilities were exceptional with very good customer service. The location of this property is ideally situated for the river and other attractions. Within walking distance there are many bars and good restaurants catering for all age groups. We had a fabulous holiday and can't wait to return.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Dalaman at 28 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Istanbul Bar at 500 Metres Nearest Restaurant : Istanbul Bar and Wishing Well restaurant at 500 Metres 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 25 minutes outside of Dalyan. With many species of interesting birds, from White Tailed Eagles to Red-rumped swallows, expert birders and amateurs alike would struggle not to have a great birding holiday.

"I saw 95 species which was a good haul given my relatively limited experience and time''

Cycling is also very good in this area with bicycle hire readily available and inexpensive.


Dalyan is best known for its lush greenery, beautiful winding river and Itzuzu beach, which is not only a natural wonder but has also won The Times Best Open Space Award in 2010. This is one of the few natural breeding grounds of the beautiful Carreta Carreta sea turtle. There are over 6km of golden sands with access by bus, car and boat. Travellers by bus will have an opportunity to visit the Turtle Rescue Centre. Snacks and drinks are available at the cafe's situated at both ends of the beach.


The nearest airport is Dalaman which is a 25 minute drive away. Once in Dalyan car hire is not essential as we are so close to everything you could need. The town itself is quite small, and everything is within an easy walk of the villa.

Everything is within walking or cycling distance in Dalyan. The villa is within very easy reach of restaurants, bars and the gorgeous river.

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 makes it a perfect place for walking with children or the elderly, and it's a delight to cycle around. For more active holidaymakers there are forests and hiking hills all within walking distance.

Dalyan is also distinguished by it's lack of package tourists though there are still plenty of bars and restaurants to cater for all tastes. There is a market on Saturday’s selling fresh local produce, clothing and tourist items.

The town has a bank, ATMs, a post office and a number of well stocked supermarkets centred around the town square. This is where you'll also find the Dolmus (bus) area for trips to surrounding attractions. Dalyan is on the riverside where you can access the numerous boat trips, including crossing the river to the Kaunos tombs and amphitheatre. The boats can also take you to the beach, or you might enjoy a moonlight cruise to the lake, crab fishing or bird watching. There are also hot springs and mud baths at the nearby Koycegiz lake.

Fethiye and Olu Deniz are a 50 minute drive away, with Marmaris being about a 75 minute drive. Both Marmaris and Fethiye offer ferry services to Rhodes.
