Location description from owner
The Turkish Aegean Coast region
Icmeler is a beautiful beach resort on the historic Lycian Turquise Coast only 6 kilometers from the large and vibrant resort of Marmaris. This pine forested heaven is infused with all the atmosphere of both the Mediterranean and the Aegean Seas and is truly picturesque against the backdrop of magnificent Taurus Mountains. Drifting away amongst palm trees and Eucalyptus on the stunning Icmeler beach may well be your idea of the perfect holiday, but if that’s not enough, a wide range of sporting and cultural activities and excursions will ensure that there’s always plenty to do.This olive and honey farming community is home to the best plant for producing oxygen in the world, the Sigla (or Gunnuk), which only found here and in California. This plant and the pristine forests and the beach (which has been given the Blue Flag eco-award) create one of the most revitalizing surroundings for a beach holiday. Icmeler’s exemplary tourist facilities are harmoniously incorporated into the natural habitat of the area. The nightlife is vibrant and there are plenty of restaurants, bars and nightclubs to choose from, and just down the road, the many Marmaris nightclubs provide nights not far off those found in Ibiza.
LOW PRICED AND BREATHTAKING EXCURSIONS AND ACTIVITIES THAT TAKE OFF JUST A FEW STEPS AWAY FROM YOUR HOME:EPHESUS- attracts millions every year with its spectacular archaeology and sights. Being one of the best preserved and largest ancient Roman sites in the Mediterranean, Ephesus offers sights like the Temple of Artemis (one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World), the Library of Celsius, The Ancient Brothel and an impressively large amphitheatre which has hosted stars like Elton John and Tom Jones. Ephesus has played a great role in the history of Christianity. St. Paul stayed here for three years during which he wrote his letters to the Corinthians. Situated 9 km ahead of Ephesus is the entrancing shrine of the Virgin Mary where she came with St. John to spread Christianity and spend her last days on earth. The shrine has been declared a pilgrimage site by the Vatican.ICMELER BOAT TRIP- only snow can spoil this day! Lots of fun, lovely scenery, plenty swimming, snorkeling and sun-bathing. Visit the legendary five bays of Marmaris. Three stops for off-the-boat swimming (step into the sea or simply plunge off the deck) and two villages; Kumlubük and Turunç for walking ashore. Fish feeding at Paradise Island and the eerie Phosphorus Caves are what we call short click-click breaks of the trip. B.B.Q Lunch is always taken as a feast by sea air-boosted appetites.DALYAN- with its five-mile long stretch of golden sand Turtle beach, surrounded by salt water on one side and fresh water on the other, the Lycian Rock Tombs and the glorious Mud Baths, Dalyan remains one of the most unique corners of the Earth. Either by boat or by coach, once in the resort you will be taken further on river boats to visit the sights of Dalyan. The river boat cruises through tall reeds and maze-like passages of the Dalyan Delta and will surely remind you of Humphrey Bogarts’ The African Queen. Stop over at the magnificent Rock Tombs of Caunos carved high in the cliff. Let yourself be carried back through history as your guide tells you the beguiling story of the ancient site of Caunos. And finally the Source of Youth; The Mud Baths. It’s fun, it’s rejuvenating and it surely is, a great chance for a hilarious snapshot!PAMUKKALE- the rich thermal springs, which pour down the hillside, over thousands of years, have formed these bizarre cascades of travertine and mineral pools. With its peculiar lime terraces and mineral baths, Pamukkale is a perfect work of mother-nature and unique in the world today. The sights of ancient Hierapolis are in walking distance and equally impressive.RAFTING- archaically named Indos, the Dalaman River was once the border between the ancient civilizations of Caria and Lycia. With its ever-flowing whitewaters, awe-inspiring wilderness, beautiful canyons and ancient remains, the venue provides a perfect backdrop for this heart-pounding activity. The journey from Icmeler to the base takes about an hour.MARMARIS NIGHTLIFE- currently one of the most popular tourist resorts in Turkey, and is undoubtedly the place to go if you need a nightly dose of bars, foam parties and elaborate nightclubs, because when dusk falls, the resort is ignited in a swarm of neon lights and lasers. Icmeler has also a lot to offer in this sense, but Marmaris center is indeed comparable to Bodrum, Ibiza or Majorca.TURKISH NIGHT- is also highly reccomanded and a differnet way to party. Great traditional turkish live music, belly dance compilations, great food and lots to drink offers a great night out for young and mature.TURKISH BATH- an Oriental tradition, not to be missed! What better way to start your holiday than with the total indulgence of a Turkish bath? The luxurious treatments will leave your mind and body prepared for the days ahead and will give your skin a head start for that perfect tan. For centuries, the Turkish bath has played an important part in our culture. So when in Turkey, do as the Sultans did: Take a Turkish bath!SCUBA DIVING- discover what beauty lies beneath the waves. Icmeler, with its clear Mediterranean blue waters and great underwater visibility offers sensational diving opportunities for divers of any level.QUAD SAFARI- experience the thrill of mastering a quad bike on this exciting day bound to be the highlight of your holiday. An unbeatable adventure for both young and mature adventure seekers.HORSE SAFARI- a short drive of 20 minutes and you are on a horseback, easy-riding through pine forests, orange groves and wild rivers while the village life around continues unspoilt. No experience needed to have a wonderful time, just simply stay on the saddle and let your horse do the rest. Well trained placid horses behave their best for their shy riders.CLEOPATRA BEACH- the sands of the island are legendary and are believed to have been imported as a gift to Cleopatra. Walk barefoot along the stretch of pale pink sand which squeaks with each step and know that this unique sand is to be found nowhere else in the world. The Amphitheatre and fortifications are also well worth a visit if you can bear to tear yourself away from the breathtaking backdrop of mountains which frame the bright azure waters of the bay.VILLAGE TOUR- boasting numerous bars and vibrant night-life, Marmaris and Icmler can be anything but traditional. Yet even in a place like Marmaris, ‘the traditional Turkey’ is not as far away as you may think. Allow yourself to discover the simplicity of rural life, natural beauty and meet the local people who will enchant you with their genuine hospitality and traditional cookingWATER PARKS/ FISHING TRIPS/ PARAGLIDING/ MOONLIGHT BOAT TRIPS/ WATER SPORTS/ A BOAT TRIP TO THE FAMOUSE GREEK ISLAND OF RHODES ONLY 50 MINUTES AWAY- the list just goes on and on.

Map and how to get there
– based on 33 reviews
- Very Good
This was our first time visiting Turkey so we were very unsure of which part to stay at. After reading the reviews from Garden Villas it then became our first choice. There was 7 of us, age range from 10yrs - 23yrs, plus 2 adults. On arrival Timur's brother was there to greet us. The villa was immaculate and very spacious, with everything you needed. Only things missing were mirrors in the bedrooms. which were needed when you have 3 teenage girls !! The pool was lovely, very clean. There was no shallow side though so young ones need floats. There were plenty of sun loungers, tables and chairs around the poolside. The location of the villa was spot on. Walk out of the villa turn the corner and there were all the restaurants, shops etc on your door step. We enjoyed very good meals in Amigos (staff there are very helpful and friendly). Also try The Chef... Excellent food and excellent value for your money. As for the night life, get yourself to BAR EX !! Brilliant night in there, staff were so funny, very entertaining and you also got served real drinks!! The beach was 3 minutes walk away, to hire sun loungers on the beach cost 5 lira, but you can haggle and get them down. It is a pebble beach so I would recommend wearing shoes that you can go into the sea with, also the fish in the sea nip at your legs (was a shock to us at first !!). ha ha. I would recommend taking English money there as the Turkish like this and you can get a much better exchange rate from any shop or even in the bars. I would also recommend the Jeep Safari, but be prepared to get very very wet !! There were 7 of us and it only cost £25 for a full day out. We also went to the water park in Marmaris which was very good value for money and another brilliant day. Overall this was the perfect holiday , very eventful and very relaxing. I would definitely recommend Garden Villas to everyone.
Ok so this is a bit of a late review but definitely not forgotten how great our stay garden villas was September last year. After ringing numerous places trying to find a affordable place for myself, girlfriend, 1 year old daughter and motherror in law I gave Timur a call, who was very helpfull and informative. All we had to do was book the flights and pass on the details to him, he kindly organised for a taxi to pick us up from dalaman airport with a car seat for my daughter. When we arrived at the villa we were greeted at 2am by timurs brother who helped carry all of our luggage inside who also gave us a tour around. The villa was in immaculate condition we had 2 balconies with a large table and chairs, all the flooring was marble and tiles, full air conditioning in every room and new kitchen facilities. After a long flight (4 hours with a baby lol) it was relief to find we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay! the next morning we were greeted by timurs father who was very friendly to all of the family, he showed us around the garden which was beautifully maintained by the gardener every day, they even have a tortoise!!! And plenty of fruit trees. swimming pool.. had it all to ourselves, clean and new, perfect Icmeler: just outside the villa there is a restraunt called amigo where we spent most of our time, brilliant family entertainment. Beach: 2 minute walk or 10 secs on the quad bike :) So to sum up our holiday here was 10/10 thank you!
“I would not hesitate to recommend this villa to friends”
It was our first time in Turkey and it came as a very pleasant surprise. The scenery is stunning, the people delightful and the food varied, good and cheap. Icmeler is set in a beautiful bay surrounded by dramatic mountains, everywhere you look it is lush and green-something we had not expected . Garden Villa is tucked away in a largely residential area about five minutes from the beach and less than two minutes to bars/ restaurants. A car is not necessary public transport is frequent and reasonable, whether it be dolmus or water taxi which is great fun. Simply, but adequately furnished(the beds in particular were very comfortable) the villa was spotless inside and out. The real selling point however for us was the outside space where you got the impression a considerable amount of money had been spent. When you walked out the door you were met with a really beautiful view. An exceptionally large swimming pool, pretty landscaped gardens, comfy loungers, plenty patio furniture all wrapped up in a fabulous mountain backdrop. Laze around the pool all day, walk along the 9km promenade to Maramaris or go on one of the numerous reasonably priced boat trips(we went to Rhodes) you will not be bored. Finally I have to mention the owner who went out of his way to be helpful throughout the booking process. He forwarded lots of information on the area, suggestions for day trips etc and was only a phone call away should we have any queries. A caretaker was also available on a daily basis . I have booked many villas/apartments in the past but have never had such an efficient personal service. It was a delight to deal with him and I would not hesitate to recommend this villa to friends.
“Great villa in ideal location”
The villa was ideal and well equipped. The gardens and pool are great, it is surprisingly peaceful given its location to all the bars and restaurants. The owners and caretaker have been exceptionally accommodating, which made our holiday all the more enjoyable.
“Perfect in every way”
We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our holiday at garden villas. The booking process was so simple and Timur was very helpful. The villa suited our needs, we found it to be very clean, simply furnished but all you need for holidaying. Timur's family were staying at the new villa while we were there,and they are such nice people, nothing is too much trouble. We loved the figs & other fruits they gave us to try. The pool and gardens are beautiful with fig,orange, pommegranet & lime trees and the tortoise was often seen in the garden. The location of the villa is great,just round the corner from restaurants and shops and only a few minutes walk to beach & harbour ( at end of harbour walk to the right and you will come to a small secluded beach) A great holiday villa,we are hoping to get a group together and book all 3 villas for next year
“Great villa especially for family with teenagers”
We stayed in the "New" Garden Villa for 11 nights. It was a great villa for us because the teenagers got their own floor with a separate key for access (and we got a floor to ourselves too). The pool area was lovely and the villa is ideally placed for access to the town - without being on the main thoroughfare. The owner was very helpful before and during our stay.
“Relaxing and perfect pool”
The house is very convenient even with young kids (8 and 2). We all enjoyed the pool a lot and the garden is well maintained as well. Very close to the beach. Owner was very responding in adding equipment to the kitchen as it is basic for a self contained. We had a very relaxing time and a perfect weather.
“Lovely villa in beautiful surroundings”
The villla is centrally based in Icmeler surrounded by a beautiful garden and a lovely pool which is ample size for the three villas that share its use, although if the other villas are fully occupied then there are not enough sunbeds for everyone, however the beach is only just a very short walk down the road. The villa is spacous with a large living room, with a bed settee, two chairs and another settee and the three bedrooms are of good size, the master bedroom has built in wardrobes, air conditioning, a double bed and a single bed, which would be useful if travelling with a small child, however if you are travelling in a mixed group it may be a little difficult with sleeping arrangements. The second bedroom had two single beds, air conditioning and a small balcony and the small room had a single bed and a wardrobe but unfortunately it did not have air conditioning, which in the height of summer made it impossible to sleep in, but there was also a put you up bed available to go in the living room if necessary. The kitchen was small but had a large fridge/freezer, toaster, kettle and a hotplate but no cooker, this was not a major issue, but there were times when it would have been nice to cook at the villa or to be able to have a barbeque but there was not one of those either unfortunately. The villa is not suitable for people who cannot manage stairs as there are a lot of them, but it wasn't a problem for us, but there is only really one bathroom upstairs, which did make it a little tricky when getting ready to go out as we had to take it in turns, however there is a downstairs toilet, which was handy when someone was in the shower. I have to say that the owner was very helpful throughout the booking process and it was a great pleasure dealing with him. I would consider returning to this villa in the future my family had a lovely time and the caretaker is very friendly too.
“great location and lovely owners”
Stayed in garden villas from the 27th June till 11th July and we had an absolutely lovely time. The villa could not be better located. Shops Restaurants bars and beach all within a 2 minute walk.No need for a car and just back far enough from the main entertainment area to be really peaceful. Villa is well equipped and has air conditioning.The owners were lovely and really went out of their way to help us have a great holiday.The pool area was lovely and spotlessly clean and well kept.We had a great time and the villa was perfect for us as a family.
“Beautiful villa with pool, surrounded by mountains, walking distance to centre”
I stayed in the Garden Modern Villa with 6 friends from 25 June - 3rd July 2012. The villa was perfect for us and came equipped with a pool, air-con, two private balconies and a large outside seating area and garden. We were worried because we didn't have a car but the villa was within 2 minutes walk of the main road of Icmeler where all the restaurants, shops and bars are. Our villa had a large kitchen and lots of communal spaces inside and out, perfect for our group. The villa owners were fantastically accommodating and welcoming and gave us lots of advice and assistance. The villa is surrounded by high green mountains and the garden has tortoises. At night the pool was lit up and we ate outside most evenings. Icmeler itself was quite busy (much quieter than Marmaris but still lots of places to eat, drink and dance in the evenings) but the villa was tucked away from the noise. The local beach is popular and is quite crowded with lots of sunbeds. We found a quieter beach round the corner (keep walking past the harbour) which was lovely. Overall I couldn't fault this villa for price, location or comfort.
