About Mrs Justine Kavak

We are a Turkish/English couple Melih and Justine Kavak who have been married for 20 years and lived in Akyaka for 11 years. We live in Akyaka and will always be on hand if required to help with local information and anything else you may need. We feel we have the right combination of local knowledge and understanding of what holidaymakers may need to make the most of their holidays in the area. Nothing pleases us more than to see our guests happy and relaxed and enjoying their well deserved break.

Mrs Justine Kavak purchased this villa in 2007

Why Mrs Justine Kavak chose Ula

We were living in Akyaka, then whilst on a scooter ride one day we came across the lovely valleys behind Gokova and we knew we had discovered the area we wanted to live in. We bought a plot of land in Citlik Village with the prospect of building and designing our own villa. Sinjap Villa has just been completed 2013. When designing, building and decorating the villa we kept a traditional Turkish Villa in mind and feel we have a created a very comfortable luxury Villa which has a character and charm of its own. With lovely gardens and pool combining sunny and shaded private areas.

What makes this villa unique

The location of Sinjap Villa is unique as it combines the peacefulness of a retreat whilst being near a main arterial route which can take you to many local sites and attractions. The main D400 road which can take you to Akyaka, Dalyan, Köyegiz, Muğla, Marmaris, Fethiye and beyond is only 5 mins from the Villas. However when you turn down the country lane to our village you are transported to a different world where the village women still make their own bread, cheese and butter use donkeys to gather olives from the surrounding mountains. The pace of life slows right down and you can do nothing but relax and listening to the sounds of birds in the trees and tortoises rustling in the undergrowth. If interested in walking or cycling there are some fantastic routes to explore

Beautiful place , and a tranquil setting . Going home with batteries recharged

  • 5 of 5

This villa was above and beyond our expectations. Everything is clean , tidy and fully equipped for all your needs . I would not hesitate to recommend this villa to others and certainly would come back . Justine leaves you to have a private holiday but is there at anytime should you need her . I would like to add this villa is not overlooked from any angle and gives total seclusion and privacy . It is wonderful to be in a country setting but within minutes of shops , markets and many other amenities. Also it is great value for money . The little dog Foxy is a friendly girl and will give you company if you want but will equally go about her own business if you do not enjoy her around . Well done to the owners for getting everything just perfect . And finally thank you for allowing us to rent the villa . Ps the pool guy is a star and he made us laugh . Finally you can't beat the Turkish hospitality. Our car hire did not arrive at the airport ( uk fault ) and Turkish guys sorted it all for us on their own mobiles .Insructions to get to the villa were great and we arrived at 2am so even in the dark was simple to find ....and we had no satnav .

An amazing escape from the hustle and bustle

  • 4 of 5

This location was rural and set in a valley, the wildlife was great with owls just outside the villa, perfect for bird watchers and those wishing to escape from urban hustle.

The villa was like home from home and full of comforts.

The wifi was hit and miss so don't expect to be in touch with the world 24-7 but then this rural location makes up for this with the views and tranquility.

Akyaka is a must, just 20 mins in a car it's a wonderful village/small town, the fresh river that meets the sea with bars, cafes, restaurants all the way along makes for a perfect night out.

This villa and location and town of Akyaka is by far one of the most relaxing and beautiful I've been too in Turkey.

You couldn't ask from more from Justine she was great and very welcoming and a lovely person

Regards from

Samantha and John

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed the Villa and surrounding area as you said its a real escape to the country. Really happy that you appreciated the villa and all it comforts we wanted to make it a real home from home for all our guests. Sorry that the Wifi was hit and miss it is normally reliable (it can slow in peak periods) but we have noticed its slow in the whole area at the moment maybe due to repair work? We are sure it will improve soon. As you said the tranquility and location are the main attractions of the villa so we are happy that you have chilled and relaxed in this beautiful corner of Turkey. Hope you will return to see us again one Day, Thanks Justine

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very relaxing week in Sinjap Villa at the end of May. The Villa offered everything required for a self catering holiday. It was very well equipped and clean and located in a beautiful rural setting.

Communication with Justine, the owner, was excellent throughout, both with questions during the booking process and any queries we had during our stay.

In our opinion, a hire car is essential in order to make the most of exploring the surrounding area.

We have no hesitation in recommending Sinjap Villa and are looking forward to staying there again.

Well equipped Villa in Forest Area

  • 5 of 5

We can thoroughly recommend Sinjap Villa after spending the last ten days there. The villa is beautifully set out with pleasing decor inside and a good range of outside areas and furniture. The garden has wonderful views across the valley and a great sized pool. The villa is about 15-20 minutes outside of Akyaka and hiring a car would be a good idea. However, we relied on taxi's which also worked out just fine. There are nearer villages with shops and a market. Justine and Mel the owners were lovely people.

Great base for exploring or just relaxing away from it all

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful few days at this really comfortable villa. It feels completely off the beaten track, even though it's easy to get to a good main road that leads to shops, beaches and nearby towns. There are lots of coves and unspoilt beaches to discover (a car is essential, although we didn't need to drive too far) and the pool was fantastic for cooling off. A very private villa, with lots of different areas to sit and relax, in a stunning setting. We really hope to come back and explore further.
