Gorgeous House

  • 5 of 5

We booked both apartments for a 1 week stay and the booking process was quick and easy. The home owners were available via phone and email for our pre- and post- booking questions and queries. Taking the key from the agent was simple too.

The house was fantastic. We had three generations of the family staying from 1-74 years old. The bedrooms were good sized, the kitchen was very well equipped and we really enjoyed our stay. Everyone enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi, the porch area was lovely for every meal time, and the garden was wonderful. Beautiful plants, flowers and shrubs, with the olive tree and grape vines, etc.

There were many books in both apartments, so helpful if you've forgotten to pack one. Dishwasher and washing machine was very useful.

Definitely a great base to discover the area. We visited Iztuzu Beach (Turtle Beach), Fethiye, Oludeniz, Sarigerme, Marmaris, boat ride in Dalyan to see the ruins... Cant wait to stay again.

Excellent villa in good location

  • 5 of 5

Excellent accomodation with easy 15 minuite walk into town. We were a party of 2 familes celebrating a special birthday, therefore hire of whole villa was perfect. We spent most of our days relaxing around the Pool and Jacuzzi on very comfortable sun loungers, umbrella shades great in very hot august sunshine and air con was a must, especially at night. We were very impressed with the salt water pool as first time we had experienced this which made a nice change. There is even a small grocery shop across the road, ideal for essential items. Thanks to Heather and chris for their info and the local agents for arranging all that was required for our 2 week stay from start to finish.

We look forward to returning to Dalyan again as lovely resort, very friendly people who made you feel very welcome.

Great accommodation for couples sharing

  • 4 of 5

Beautifully modern accommodation. We occupied the ground floor apartment as two couples and found it comfortable. Plenty of storage in the bedrooms & bathrooms.

Salt water pool was such a wonderful chemical free change from other villas we have visited & was kinder to our skin, hair & costumes.

The kitchen was very well equipped, which made cooking & preparing the great local produce a pleasure for a change.

The veranda that surrounds the ground floor apartment is so large and is in the shade most of the day with the pool area getting sun all day. In fact the apartment has been thoughtfully designed to ensure it's in shade for most of the day.; so good to not be woken by an overheated room. The little touches such as blinds & curtains that actually stops the sunlight streaming in was very much appreciated. The air con units were very efficient & much needed as temperature sreached the high 30's during our stay.

The walk to town at a leisurely.pace took about 15 min.

Would return again.

I can't wait untill my next holiday !

  • 5 of 5

I visited villa kotare last year (2014) with some friends and family! The holiday had a good mix of adventures suitable for us all! More importantly however the villa was amazing, it's finishing touches make it home from home, it's modern clean and Heather the owner was so helpful through out it all - from booking to leaving!

I have booked my holiday for this year straight away and no doubt will continue to come here in the future ! Iv visited dalyan for many years and this is a little more out of dalyan then I have previously stayed however this was a nice change and still the villa is a nice 10 minute stroll to the centre! All round I would definately recommend this villa !

Excellent Duplex Villa

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a great week in Dalyan, made all the better in the fact we stayed at one of the newest Villa's in the area. Location is perfect to give that little bit of distance between the Villa and town centre. Local shop across the road. This villa is ideal for two parties and holds 12 with ease with plenty of room, the pool is a great size for all the family too. Would be back in a hartbeat.

A sparkling turquoise sea laps the shores of Iztuzu beach, a 30 minute lazy boat ride from Dalyan boat docks following the delta along it's course to the open sea. For the energetic, approximately 45 minute bike ride takes you to the same beach at it's other end. Alternatively; a 10 minute drive via car or public bus takes you there.


Dalaman International Airport is approximately a 30 minute taxi ride to Dalyan which can be arranged on booking. Car hire is not essential as the lake, beach and ruins of Kaunos are reached easily via taxi boat. Guests; however, may consider car rental for a couple of days to explore sites such as the ruins at Xanthos and Ephesus, the delightful marina town of Gocek, the magnificent Saklikent Gorge, further ruins and bazaar at Fethiye or visit the site of the film Blue Lagoon at Oludeniz.


The ancient ruins of Kaunos are accessible by a 5 minute boat journey from the Dalyan river front. The internationally renowned marina at Gocek is 40 minutes drive away and provides an excellent base for the 12-Island Boat Tour.

Further Details:

Local amenities including supermarkets, banks, dentists, doctors and shops all of which are within a 10 minute walk.

Bicycle hire is available, and can be arranged and paid locally.
