Guestbook comments from the manager

Anton & Family - It was the second time I have been to Yalikavak. The town has changed a lot. Shiny new marina called Palmarina is just a perfect place for evening walks. Luxury yachts, restaurants, pubs, shops, beach club, you can find whatever you like and never get bored.

If you want to have a lazy day and don't go out - no problem. There's enough fun on the villa you can have. Private pool is great. Always clean and the water is deep blue, thanks to local staff. If you like BBQ you can make it straight on the balcony while enjoying sunset at the marina. This is a must see too.

Amazing villa with panoramic views

  • 5 of 5

The villa catered for 9 of us with ample space and all the amenities.

The open plan kitchen diner opens out onto a large balcony which is perfect for breakfast lunch and dinner for up to 10 people.

The pool and patio area is great for relaxing with spectacular views over the ocean and surrounding area.

All the bedrooms were very clean with comfortable beds and air conditioning. Most have en-suites.

We would highly recommend the villa, it is a short distance into Yalikavak and a taxi ride away from Gumusluk which is a beautiful coastal town with plenty of restaurants and bars.

What a villa and area for a family celebration

  • 5 of 5

Booking the villa was a breeze. Annie was so helpful, paying the deposit was easy and secure. Annie also arranged our transfers to and from the villa for all 7 of us with luggage, w were on time and no problems at all.

The villa exceeded our expectations and we all throughly enjoyed our stay especially the pool, which although a little cold ( it was October) was fantastic once you got in!!! The provision of the water cooler was a very good ideas as was the little extras, such as hand soap in all the bathrooms, as well as tablets for the dishwasher and washing machine, although we had taken our own.

The town of Yaklivack was within walking distance and we found some very good restaurants in particular fish restaurants, which we throughly enjoyed.

The dolmas which you can catch at the bottom of the road was cheap and easy robust, as was the local taxis (About 15 lira).

It was very good having Sara the villa manager who is English and speaks fluent Turkish to greet you and to sort out any problems if they occur.

The downside not much to say on this except that the villa is not suitable for anyone with mobility problems.

Suggestions some instructions for the washing machine and tumble dryer in English and/or other languages as appropriate would be helpful and kinf to your machines.

The villa was extremely clean and as described in the advert.

A perfect villa for large groups

  • 5 of 5

A large group of 9 of us spent 10 days here aged from 16 years upwards and found both the location and the villa to be perfectly suited to our needs. The villa has plenty of space with 2 lounge areas and 2 terraces and some really thoughtful touches such as a stand alone water cooler and a key safe on the door. The location is walking distance from the local fish restaurants and only a short drive or bus ride from the main Marina area where there are plenty of bars, shops and restaurants to cater for all needs. The pool was attended to every day so always clean and a surprisingly lack of insects which made sitting outside more enjoyable. The villa manager was always prompt in responding to requests or queries and incredibly helpful when it came to arranging transport and boat trips.

I would highly recommend this location and would certainly return to this property again.

Villa Lavanta

  • 4 of 5

Villa Lavanta was beautiful, the pool area was nice and the views stunning, the owners have thought of everything you could possibly need, even providing towels for around the pool, the Villa stays lovely and cool so the air conditioning is only required through the night.

Annie from Peninsula Villa's was very helpful and even rang me at home to advise the availability of Villa Lavanta, and answered all my emails promptly. Sara (House keeper at Villa Lavanta) always came straight out to the Villa the few times we needed her advice.

  • Notes on accommodation: Good family accommodation, close to Yalikavak, it's Marina, shops, bars and restaurants. Outside: The villa has a private swim up infinity pool and sun bathing area and private garden (mostly paved). The pool is unusual as it almost touches the villa itself and is accessed through sliding doors at the lower ground floor. At this level, there is a small second kitchen, utility area and further lounge seating. Ideal for pool side dining and barbecuing. Because of the close proximity of the pool to the villa, it may not be suitable for small children who cannot swim. The new owner has extended the sunbathing terrace to the side of the pool and installed railings to maximise safety for younger children. Utility Room: Is at ground floor/pool level in the second kitchen and has a washing machine, iron, ironing board, clothes airer etc. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Cleaning & laundry - fresh bed linen and towels are provided. A washing machine is provided for guest's use and can be found in the utility area below the lower stairs. The villa will be cleaned on arrival and departure. Other: Sliding doors open up from the dining area on to the sea facing balcony which has a covered balcony, dining table and chairs and view of Yalikavak and the Marina. This is one of several outside dining areas.
