Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Ladybird villa welcomed its first guests in May 2013 and, since then; it has become a popular choice with holidaymakers and honeymooners.
Located less than 10kms from Dalaman airport, the villa is located in a peaceful, rural area, with good access to the main coastal road. It was described by our first guests as a 'tranquil oasis' so, if you are looking for peace and quiet to recharge your batteries, Ladybird Villa may be just what you are looking for.
The comment below is taken from one of our 2014 guest reviews and we think it sums up our villa perfectly…..
'The villa has everything you need for a great holiday, lovely pool and sunbathing area that gets the sun all day, barbecue and seating, upstairs and downstairs verandas. Grounds are large and nicely planted. Just the place for a fantastic holiday.'
The local supermarket is about 10 minutes' walk and there is a small local market for fresh fruit and veg on a Tuesday.
The nearest restaurant is the Yosun Restaurant, which is a 5 minute drive from the villa, but they also have a free pick up/drop off service.
The nearest beach is the gorgeous sandy beach at Sarigerme is around 15-20 mins drive.
Of course we live locally too, so we are always on hand with lots of help and advice for our guests.
Great for couples and families looking for a relaxing break, or those wishing to explore the south-west region and all that it has to offer. Guests can enjoy a range of nearby activities, including, beaches, water sports, mud baths, mountain walking, markets, pretty seaside towns, boat trips, historical sites and much more.

BEACHES, RELAXATION, ADVENTURE AND HISTORY
SARIGERME BEACH : with 4 miles of golden sand, shallow sea and the island of Babada not too far in the distance, is a great day out for all the family. A short walk along the wooded footpath with its turkeys, chickens and peacocks running free, brings you out onto the exceptionally clean beach. Facilities include food and drink outlets, water sports, showers, toilets, beach chairs, umbrellas and dressing cabins are all available.
SARSALA BEACH : is a lovely family beach set in a small bay with a restaurant, changing rooms, shower and W.C. The beach is 6 miles from Dalaman. There are daily "12 island" boat trips available from the small pier price is ï¿½8 per person and includes a BBQ lunch.
IZTUZU BEACH : Visit one of the most beautiful beaches on the Mediterranean coastline. This sand bar that separates the sea from the mouth of the Dalyan Creek is an excellent swimming beach. Situated 30 minutes from Dalaman, Iztuzu Beach has also been preserved, as it is one of the last nesting grounds for the endangered Loggerhead Turtles.
THERME 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 donï¿½t forget to haggle!
DALYAN : Only 20 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. It only takes you a few minutes from the centre of town to stroll through to the Old Dalyan of gardens and willow trees, to flavour days gone by.
KAYA KOY : Once a thriving Greek village, this town of over one thousand houses, two churches, fourteen chapels, and two schools, was completely deserted in 1923 when the 25,000 Greek inhabitants living there, along with more than a million other Greeks living throughout Turkey were repatriated to Greece through a massive government mandated population exchange between the two countries following the Greek war of independence. Since then, the village of Kayakoy, as it is called in Turkish, or Karmylassos, as it was called in Greek, which had been continually inhabited since at least the 13th century, has stood empty and crumbling, with only the breeze from the mountains and mist from the sea blowing through its empty houses and streets. A wonderful place steeped in history that touches you to the very soul.
KAUNOS : Visit the ancient ruins of Kaunos, situated approximately 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, others of uncertain description, a Byzantine church, and very curious rock-hewn tombs.
SULTANIYE HOT SPRINGS & 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.
WHITE-WATER RAFTING : in Dalaman is one of the most exciting holiday experiences and is perfect for active thrill seekers. The Dalaman River is rated as one of the top rafting destinations in the world. Professionals will guide you every step of the way for an unforgettable adventure on the Dalaman waters.
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 boardwalk above the river and opens out to a series of wooden platforms suspended above the water, where you can buy and eat trout at one of the specialist restaurants.
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 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. Ensuring Dalaman develops in harmony with its surrounding environment and retains its natural beauty.

"What you see (internet) is what you really get"
This is our second and very positive experience with renting a villa in Turkey. If you, like us, are not into big holiday resorts and want to taste at least a bit of what the country is like during yo… More

"LADYBIRD VILLA is just the place to stay"
Ladybird Villa is in a private location surrounded by orange trees in a semi rural position though close enough to allow you to quickly nip to the shops for anything you need.
The villa has everything you need for a great holiday, lovely pool and sunbathing area that gets the sun all day, barbecue and seating, upstairs and downstairs verandas.
Grounds are large and nicely planted.
Just the place for a fantastic holiday.
Inside it has all you need aircon in all rooms, lovely bathrooms and super kitchen.
I don't usually do revues about places we stay but felt compelled to do this one as the villa was all that could be expected and more and then there was Ruth and her hubby who will sort anything out for you to make your stay the most relaxing, Ruth says her husband works to hard, but hey both do.
Thank you so much for your kind review. You were a delight to accommodate and we are pleased you had a lovely holiday. Hubby and I consider ourselves very lucky to meet all the super families who stay at our villa and our aim, as always, is to provide everything for a comfortable holiday.

"Excellent Villa with exceptional facilities."
Spent a week at Ladybird Villa with our 3 children. Accommodation was excellent, location perfect for those wanting a taste of true Turkish life. Yet with a car your not far from all the tourist hot spots which we travelled to with much ease and convenience. I would definitely recommend the Villa, the owners were on hand to help and assist us all the way, thanks Ruth for everything.
We are so happy that you enjoyed your visit to Dalaman and Ladybird Villa. It was lovely to meet you and your family and you were all perfect guests. We hope to welcome you back one day.

"Great place for a relaxing stay."
Excellent Villa with first class facilities. Ruth and Cerzayi did everything to make our stay an enjoyable one. Dalaman is ideally located to visit anywhere from Marmaris to Kas. If you don't mind driving which is pretty relaxing compared to other locations in Turkey head up into the local hills to see rural life and outstanding views. Make sure you get to the Salikent Gorge but wear swimwear or have a change of clothing as you will get wet.
It was lovely to meet you both and thank you so much for giving our villa a review. We love having guests to stay and always hope to help make their holiday a special one.

"Perfect Villa, great service."
With family in the area we have stayed in many villas in Dalaman over the years and I have to say that Villa Ladybird ranks in our all time Top 2!
The location couldn't be better being in a quiet little spot yet very close to the centre of Dalaman with restaurants and shops a very short car ride away.
The villa is new and has been finished to a very high spec with three bedrooms and three bathrooms and all materials are of a high standard.
The large terrace overlooks the pool so the children can swim happily whilst you finish your lunch in the shade.
Most of what you need is supplied including cafetiere (often missing), hairdryer, iron, outdoor dryer, pegs, etc. The only things I would add are beach towels (usually supplied) and spare sets of bed linen and towels.
As small business owners we need internet access and this has been a problem in the past but 'Ladybird Estates' (on the high street in Dalaman) organised the rental of a 'Dongle' for us which did the job perfectly. Ruth and Sezayi (Ladybird) are so organised and professional that they are a pleasure to deal with and ready to help should you have any problems.
We had a fantastic holiday and all I can say is that we had better book early for next year as I can see this villa is going to be popular!
Thanks for your positive comments regarding villa Ladybird. We are so pleased that you had a great holiday at our villa.
This is our first rental season, so we are keen to hear renters comments, in order to improve the comfort and facilities for future guests.
Now realising that visitors flight baggage allowance seems to decrease each year, we have already planned to add beach towels to the inventory for next season and will bear in mind your comments about extra towels & bedding. Of course we will always respond to guest requests for extra items while they are in residence and will try to accommodate there every need!

"A Green Oasis"
We have just returned from a stay in this wonderful villa. It has to be the most peaceful stress free holiday we've ever had.
The villa is really beautiful and spacious and very well equipped-the three bathrooms were to die for-stunning!
It's down the end of a small track surrounded by trees-a bird watchers paradise. There were wonderful birds signing during the night-no idea what they were!
It's about a fifteen minute walk to the shops and main transport route-but we really enjoyed it-seeing a slice of 'real' Turkish life instead of just seeing resorts.
We just can't praise this enough-we will be going back-we didn't want to leave.
Go! Honestly-you couldn't be disappointed.
