About the Owner
Hi. We are Martin and Sandie Gibbs and we live in the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire. We bought Villa Serenity from Chris and Linda Moore in 2013 and hope to maintain it to the high standard that they set.
We have fallen in love with the villa, the area and local food. We are looking forward to our holidays here with friends and family. We hope to spend more time at the villa as we wind down work over the next five years,
Guestbook comments from the owner
"Having spent 3 weeks at Villa Serenity this year I can honestly say we could not have chosen a better villa. The villa itself and gardens are so beautiful and tranquil it's impossible not to relax and enjoy yourselves. It is located perfectly for visiting nearby attractions, such as; Fethiye, Dalyan, Gocek. You will see the real Turkey, which is absolutely stunning and the people are so warm and friendly. I guarantee you will not be disappointed!" The Cashmores July 2012

A superb large villa for a lovely relaxing holiday with a fantastic pool set in a beautiful secluded garden. The villa had everything that we needed for an enjoyable holiday. The pool was great to cool down in after a hot day sight-seeing and for lazing besides on quiet relaxing days. Mehmet was an absolute treasure booking restaurants and organizing trips for us into Dalyan and Gocek as well as transferring us to and from the airport. I would recommend this villa if you want a quiet and relaxing break.
Worth every penny
We have enjoyed the hospitality of Villa Serenity for 3 weeks. The house and garden are spacious and well kept, plenty of room in the shade during the day. The caretaker, Mehmet, is a treasure. You can call him any time of the day and he will assist you, whether with problems, or arranging some great daytrips. Dalaman itself is not so interesting but you can find a lot to do in the area around. Definitely worth the money!
From the Owner
“We have holidayed in this area a few times. Usually I want to go somewhere new each holiday but we have fallen for this lovely area of Turkey. We took just a few minutes to decide Villa Serenity was for us. It is near the marinas of Gocek and the resorts of Fethiye and Dalyan. Meeting the property management company sealed the deal, Mehmet, our property manager, is a star.”
Activity and Interests
Special interest holidays:
Kaunos: the ancient ruins are just 40 minutes from the villa. Amongst the ruins of the city, you will find an old theatre, a large rectangular building that was probably a temple, a Byzantine church, and very curious rock-hewn tombs.
Sultaniye mud baths: situated just before Dalyan Creek joins the lake, you can give yourself a body pack of mud and then wash it all off again in a sulphur pool with temperatures as hot as in the Sultaniye Baths.
Saklikent Gorge: the ideal place to visit if you are feeling especially hot. The gorge is 18km long and so steep and narrow that the sun does not penetrate, so the water is icy cold. The gorge is approached along a wooden board walk above the river and opens out to a series of wooden platforms, where you can eat trout at one of the restaurant.
White water rafting: one of the most exciting holiday experiences perfect for active thrill seekers. Professionals will guide you every step of the way for an unforgettable adventure on Dalaman River.
Sarigerme: golden sand, shallow sea. Facilities include food and drink outlets, water sports, showers, WC, beach chairs, umbrellas and dressing cabins.
Sarsala: set in a small bay with a restaurant, changing rooms, shower and WC. ‘12 island’ boat trip available from the pier, 20 Lira per person includes lunch. Iztuzu: most beautiful beaches on the Med. The sand bar separates the sea from the mouth of Dalyan Creek, great for swimming. One of the last nesting grounds for Loggerhead Turtles.
Airlines flying into Dalaman include: Thomas Cook, Easyjet, First Choice, Jet2, Onur Air, Thomson, Monarch, Pegasus and Turkish Airlines. Airport to villa transfer, if required, payable locally. Car hire: essential if you want to explore during your holiday.
We offer all our guests a complimentary Meet N Greet and support service throughout your stay with us.

Dalaman is an area of breathtaking natural beauty located between the sea and mountains, with fragrant orange groves, lovely unspoilt beaches and fascinating ancient sites. The ideal base to explore from or just to relax in the rural setting. Dalaman is rapidly becoming an area of destination rather than just a stop over on the way to some other resort town. Over development and exploitation of the area is stopped by the protection afforded to the rare loggerhead turtles that frequent the river and beach. This should ensure that Dalaman continues to develop in harmony with its surrounding environment and retain its natural beauty. The area has an abundance of good restaurants, supermarkets, banks, open air markets, chemists and shops.
Explore the Area:
Theme Maris Spa: you can buy a day pass to use some great facilities including massage, fitness centre, beauty centre (skin care centre, aromatic bathtub, solarium, peeling, hamam, sauna, pressotherapy, starvac, thermo failure), 3 different outdoor pools with thermal natural water, indoor pool, jacuzzi and mud bath. You can see and feed the endangered Loggerhead Turtles. Located immediately behind Dalaman Beach.
Gocek: often referred to as the St. Tropez of Turkey, with its exclusive yachting marina and unspoilt beaches, Gocek has emerged as one of the countries most affluent areas to live in Turkey. Take the 12 Island Boat Excursion great day out for all the family. The market takes place on a Sunday, ideal place to buy leather goods, local crafts don’t forget to haggle!
Dalyan: only 30 minutes drive to the west from the Villa, you will find Dalyan, a small but exquisite fishing town, which lies next to a meandering river, teaming with wild life. After spending your time browsing the typically diverse Turkish market stalls, why not relax and take a look at the Lycian tombs, carved into the rock face, from the comfort of one of the many romantically set restaurants lining the Dalyan riverside.

From the Owner
“Villa Serenity is near to Dalaman and 12 minutes from the airport but sits in peaceful countryside with views to the mountains which are snow covered much of the year. Orchards of oranges and pomegranates are back and front of the secluded garden hidden by an oleander hedge.Lemons and oranges grow in the garden so feel free to pick some and use the citrus press to have fresh juice.”
