About the Owner

I'm Jim and together with my wife Marjo and our cat Miku, we live here all year round. After working abroad in Turkey and other hot countries for 30 years or so, we decided that our bones could not tolerate a return to our respective homelands of Scotland or Finland (Romania for Miku) and decided to settle down here.

villa in wonderful setting

  • 5 of 5

we have just had a wonderful two weeks in this lovely villa. The owners are very welcoming and helpful. The villa was spotless and well equipped. The only noises to be heard at night were the owls and the frogs .Just like the other reviews we would recommend this villa if you want peace and quiet.

Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent two weeks at this wonderful property.

If you want somewhere that is rural, very quiet but not too far to from the airport (Dalaman) then this property would be perfect. It is also good value.

Despite the property having a fantastic rural location it is just over five minutes to the main road which gives access to Dalyan, Gokec, Fethiye and beyond. Supermarkets, shops, markets, restaurants etc are all within easy distance, as long as you have a car.

There are wonderful gardens around the property and the pool is amazing - although the owners share the pool we had it to ouselves the whole two weeks! In fact, it often felt like we had the whole property to ourselves.

There is plenty of private outdoor space around the villa and there is also a great roof terrace from which there are fantastic views of the surrounding countryside.

The villa itself is very comfortable and has everything you would need, including airconditioning and fans.

Finally, a note about the owners. Jim and Marjo and genuinely lovely, kind people. Nothing was ever too much trouble and they have a perfectly relaxed approach to guests renting the villa in the grounds of their property. They are the kind of people that make you feel you have known them for ever. We really do hope that one day we find the time to stay with them again.

We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this property.

Fantastic...

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a weeks stay at this little slice of heaven. The property is exactly like the pictures on the website. if you want to relax away from the crowds and tourist spots of the region, then this is the place for you. A beautifully peaceful spot with awesome views of the surrounding mountains, the villa is perfect, clean, well maintained, well equipped and comfortable, the pool and gardens are lovely. Both Jim and Marjo couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. You will definitely need a car to stay here, but you are so central (once you reach the main road) to all beaches and popular tourist area's, Dalyan is only a 25 minute drive, the airport, 20 minutes. Would we recommend others to stay here, YES, definitely, will we be coming back, YES, definitely... We had a perfect holiday and left relaxed, recharged and revitalised.

"WoW"

  • 5 of 5

Just had an amazing week in this lovely little villa, the owners Jim and Mayo were warm and friendly and couldn't be more helpful.

The whole place was spotless, the pool and garden was just wonderful to sit and relax and admire the wonderful scenery, a walkers paradise.

The garden restaurant further up in the valley is worth a visit.

If you are looking for a peaceful and tranquil holiday this is the place to come.

Thank you Jim and Mayo our batteries are fully recharged.

Location

From the Owner

We knew we wanted to live on or near the coast and had investigated Antalya, Kemer and Marmaris areas. On the last day of househunting in Marmaris an estate agent brought us here. Although the property hardly matched anything on our wish list, we decided to take it. It's secluded, yet still close enough to facilities and in particular, close to the airport, so that it's totally convenient. We haven't looked back since.

Activity and Interests

Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

Many beaches are within 1/2 hour car drive:

- Sarigerme, good sand and facilities, life guard.

- Sarsala, interesting drive, nice beach.

- Iztuzu, famous turtle beach, can also be reached by boat from Dalyan.

- Dalaman itself, close to the airport and rarely visited.

Travel:

Dalaman airport is about 20 minutes by car.

Distances:

Dalaman and Ortaca are both about 10 minutes by car and offer supermarkets, restaurants, hamams (Turkish baths) and a variety of shops. Dalyan, for boat trips, beach, restaurants, shopping, ancient tombs and mud baths, 30 mins by car. Gocek and its marina, harbor, boat trips, shopping, restaurants, also 30 mins by car. Fethiye with its harbour, restaurants and boutiques is 40 minutes, Oludeniz takes 1 hour and Marmaris is 1 hour 30 minutes.

Further Details:

Village travelling markets selling fruit, vegetables, clothes, souvenirs and pretty much everything you can think of take place on a weekly basis. e.g Koycegiz Monday, Dalaman Thursday, Ortaca Friday, Dalyan Saturday, Gocek Sunday.

As the villa is not in a built up area, there are many tracks and trails to be explored right from the door.

More adventurous tours are jeep safaris, white water rafting, Saklikent Gorge, Xanthos - either in your own car or with an organised tour.

Facilities

From the Owner

Whenever we come back from a holiday in, say, Istanbul, one of the first things we do is sit on the balcony and marvel at the peace and quiet. Only birds, the wind, cicadas and maybe a passing car or tractor 10 or 12 times a day. Plenty of wildlife - we called the place Kartaltepe (Eagles' Peak) - as they are often heard and seen circling above us. Fox, rabbits, pine marten, tortoise (they eat our flowers and baby melons) etc.. Wild boar roam the forests around and can occasionally be seen.
