We were met at the airport late at night with our hire car and taken directly to the villa to ensure we found our way. The drive from the airport was approx 25 mins and was great not having to get a transfer bus. We would highly recommend a hire car as you can then get about and visit local areas and attractions.
Upon arrival at the villa we were all blown by it. The full marble flooring and staircase gives it a real wow factor. The private pool and Bar B Que is for exclusive use of the Villa. With stunning views across the valley, hills and lake all adds to the experience.
The Villa itself is finished to a very high standard, the kitchen has all the mod-cons including a dish washer. The bedrooms are large and there is plenty of space to pack away clothes and cases. The icing on the top is the solarium, early evening drinks were often enjoyed in the relaxed surroundings. There is a very comfy lounge area and a couple of large balcony areas with table and chairs to enjoy food and drinks as you please.
There is a restaurant close by which is a 5-6 mins walk. There are two ways to get there, the first by walking along the quiet road and the second which we preferred was via the lush gardens next to the stream. The restaurant is set in magical surroundings, with frogs and fish in the pond and you can sit up in the trees in the “bird nests” this was really fun and the staff were really friendly and made you feel very welcome.
Our group consisted of 5 people, 2 couples and 1 single traveller. There was no sense of overcrowding as the villa is big and can easily cater for that number.
We stayed for 2 weeks and it was our most relaxing 2 week break to date, just wish we could have stayed longer!
I would highly recommend the Villa, everything was made easy by the management company, they even arranged a boat trip on the lake which included lunch and was purely for the 5 of us. I did a spot of fishing and caught a few whilst enjoying a cold beer.
This villa really is in an idyllic location, if you are looking to relax and get away from life’s stresses then this is the place for you. Enjoy.... …
Apartment in Akkaya Valley
Wonderful apartment in a beautiful setting and location
I went with my husband and 2 teenage sons. The apartment was really lovely, it was clean, spacious, comfortable beds and furnishing, with air conditioning throughout. It was in a very attractive complex of apartments and villas, extremely well maintained and cared for and excellent value for money. It had a super, large balcony with stunning views. It was peaceful and had a lovely welcoming outdoor pool, clean, unheated (perfect for the summer days), well maintained which kept us all entertained for hours. Most days we actually had the pool to ourselves! There were ample sunbeds and brollies by the poolside for relaxing. There was also a gym. The apartment was located in a quiet, green, picturesque valley surrounded by mountains, lovely open night skies and a distant lake to view.
Within walking distance through a wooded pathway was a very impressive restaurant which had seating in the tree tops and tasty, very reasonably priced food!
We hired a car for getting out and about, visiting surrounding areas of interest.
I liked the fact it wasn't touristy. It felt a good spot to enjoy peace and beauty, but with a hire car it was also a great spot for visiting some of the more touristy spots and also the lesser touristy spots. We found plenty to do and used the Lonely planet guide found in a drawer of the apartment for inspiration. The owners had also emailed us some great written information on potential places to visit, which we used and found very useful.
The owners sent great directions, information and advise on who to contact if we needed anything. I felt very safe and within easy reach of help, should the need arise, on the complex.
It really was a superb family holiday, my first abroad for 19 years, we could not have asked for anything better. …

All rooms are large and nice. Very comfortable beds. The kitchen is fully supplied with all you need to cook and prepare. A very nice sized pool area, there is even a small kids’ pool.
The local residents were extremely warm and welcoming, whereby we would often be given gifts of different fresh fruits such as figs and watermelon and even the local Pine Honey.
Dalaman town centre is just 10 minutes walking distance from the villa. The location is ideal for exploring this particular region of Turkey with beaches, towns, resorts, markets and.....
Dele and Tracy the owners are very nice people and good communicators. They were great with any concerns we had.

Magical holiday in a fantastic setting

"A wonderful family holiday in a relaxing environment."
The owners were extremely helpful throughout our stay but ensured we had all the privacy we needed for a relaxing family holiday. The pool and garden were very well equipped and well cared for. Dalyan has many nice cafes and restaurants that are worth visiting. Add a boat trip on one of the small boats for a nice day out. …
