- Very Good
Great villa - it's in an excellent location, really quiet with a great view. The house has everything needed for a comfortable stay and makes a great base to explore the peninsula. It's also perfect for lazing the day away with a good book (there are a few there already and we have added to the collection). There's TV and wifi although we did not use those. As it's so remote, it's also perfect for stargazing and one of the highlights was lying by the pool watching the swifts and swallows swiping down to drink. The Datca peninsula itself is a great place to explore; lots of little bays with loads of good restaurants as well as isolated beaches where you are the only inhabitants. The water was very clear - had some good swims. The historic settlement of Knidos is about 30 mins away and worth a poke round for half a day. It has the bonus of a cafe there too - the garlic prawns were excellent.
“A Lovely Villa, Sea Views, Very Comfortable, Lovely Pool.”
A lovely villa, sea views, very comfortable, lovely pool. I would like to say that our holiday was outstanding. A truly awesome view, a brilliant location from which to explore this unspoilt region. The rooms are cool even in mid July and very well equipped. The house was in a wonderful surrounding and quiet . The owners was so helpful and has thought of everything to make our holiday perfect. We loved every minute of our stay and are hoping to go back to Villa Olive Garden again next year. It is well equipped with a good kitchen, dishwasher and washing machine. Great views over the bay. The locals are very friendly, and the location feels very safe. We hired a car, which I would say is pretty essential to get around during the day- the best supermarkets are in the town, and there are plenty of places to visit in the area, such as Kinidos and Old Datca Beautiful Villa - met all our expectations. Would stay again.
“Great Villa Wonderfull Holiday”
We found the villa by chance on the internet having been recommendedthe Datca Peninsula by friends and stayed in June 2011. What a find!The whole area is truly stunning and we had a wonderful holiday. Theviews as you drive from Datca to Musudiye are especially breathtaking. The villa is about 15 mins drive from the main town of Datcabut we spent most of our time in the beaches nearby and only wentthere a couple of times to visit the supermarket and the spring lake.You can have a nice massage under the mini waterfall.The villa is really charming and comfortable and makes you feel youare part of the real Turkey. The gardens are beautiful and spaciousbut with all sorts of fruit, vegetables, herbs and flowers notforgetting the Olive trees! The kids loved the pool so much it washard to get them out. We had the master bedroom with the on suite,waking up to the views from the window is something I will not forgetand being able to walk out on to the upstairs balcony and into thekids room was a great way to start each morning. There is a largemodern family bathroom as well and big kitchen with everything youneed especially a dish washer! The satellite stations are mostlyforeign so bring some of your own DVD’s to keep the kids amused.The kitchen and living room open up on to the large veranda where wespent most of our time eating fresh bread and enjoying thesurprisingly good Turkish wine. Wonderful to sit out here in theevenings and look out at the stars.Thanks to Sel, Harun and Nermin for helping whenever we needed it andmaking us feel like part of the family. We loved joining in thesinging and dancing at Eytay, hopefully see you next year!
Owner's reply: Really pleased you had a great time during your stay, see you next year! Sel Harun and Nermin.
“Wonderful Villa set in Paradise!”
Lovely, comfortable traditional villa, spacious, clean and full of character. We spent a week at Villa Olive Garden and did not want to leave. The views from the veranda, gardens and pool are just stunning. If you are looking for a holiday in the real Turkey this place is for you. Locals are extremely friendly and hospitable, lots of sun and great food!
Owner's reply: Thanks for taking the time time to write a review, we are really pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again. Sel, Harun and Nermin.
“Brilliant location - but disappointing villa”
We stayed at the villa olive garden during the first two weeks of September 2011. Although we could not fault the surroundings (the coast, landscape, atmosphere), the villa was somewhat a disappointment. The garden is lovely, and so is the swimming pool with its view on the bay, but they are both frequented by a lot of rather assertive wasps and hornets. Inside the villa, the standards drop markedly from the pretty exterior: gloomy lighting in the kitchen and living room, tacky very worn pine cladding, loose toilet seats. The electricity supply is inadequate (lights dim when the kettle is on...). Whilst the the bedrooms are air conditioned, the ground floor is not (a fan is supplied, which did not work). The TV is tiny, the beds are mediocre... The villa feels very lived in (it is obvious it acts as a residential home throughout the year for either the owner or her parents) and in dire need of a refurb, and definitely below what one would expect given the not-so-cheap rental rate. If you do visit the Datca peninsula however, we can recommend the Gulcan Restaurant in Ovabuku, and the Zeynep restaurant (in an old windmill 10 mins out of Datca towards Marmaris). Both owners are remarkably friendly.
Owner's reply: We are sorry these guests did not appear to like the Villa. However they were not a family with teenagers as listed but actually an all-male group who insisted that we should not attend the Villa during their stay for personal reasons. We reluctantly accepted this which meant we could not make our regular visits to maintain the pool and gardens or attend to any minor maintenance problems. We pride ourselves on service and give guests our mobile number and can normally be at the Villa within the hour or give any advice or suggestions. Having arrived 5 hours before check in on the first day without warning, we took them to a local hotel for breakfast on us and completed the cleaning asap to allow them access to the Villa early. We came back later to fix a sprinkler in the garden to discover them struggling to light the barbecue. We provided some charcoal and lit the fire. Later we received a text not of thanks but to advise us in no uncertain terms not to attend the Villa again without an appointment! Please see the many other reviews and photos here and in our guest book. The Villa is not used as a residential property (see all year availability) and was only completed and furnished in mid 2008. It is purposely designed and styled in the tradition of the local area. The Villa is improved and updated every year and is appreciated by nature lovers and families looking for a Turkish styled property in a spectacular rural environment.
“Great house, view, pool, garden, care takers, wild life, weather”
Great place to chill out and relax, about 10 cars per day pass by, total peace and quiet. On a no moon night, you can see the milky way and other stuff in the sky, no light polution from towns, as no towns are near by. Sel and her family are most helpful and attend to any issue quickly and cheerfully, the pool light times were adjusted to suit my star gazing. Any language issues are easy with Google translations. Free Wifi is at the house and in many restaurants. Get a turkish sim cars to make phone calls with, roaming costs a fortune. Do not go if you have mobility issues, the whole area is hilly and all houses are built onto/into hillsides. This makes for stunning views from both balcony and terraces, but makes for steps and stairs. Stair gates for kids are fitted. Pool is great, clean and warm, with wicked view from the lilo. House has 3 WC and 3 showers, one with bath under, and fourth shower in the garden. The garden is great and stocked with fruit and vegetables for use of the guests: tomatoes, peppers, onions, aubergines, melons, pomme granate, quinces, apples, lemons, mulberries, oranges, olives, ... sure there were a few more I didn't remember. Hose and sprinkler keeps stuff watered, I really enjoyed keeping things green and fruitful, but that was my choice and is NOT compulsory! Widlife on the doorstep: swallows, falcons, jays, wild pigs if you leave the rubbish out at night (hmm, the clear up in the morning..., other bait would make them show if you are real quiet at night, they are skittish and shy), snakes, (again they are really shy and the tremble of a foot step will make them scoot under walls etc), crickets galore, and ants will show if you leave food out for prolongued periods, like in all hot countries. The drive into Datca for banks or boat trips is quicker than it looks, but drive close to your side of the road, as many Turks drive in the middle.But not noticed any accidents, inshallah! Mesudye has a small village shop which stocks the the essentials and is well worth supporting, as with a fair few holiday houses they need the business to keep going. The fruit and veg man calls at the shop Monday and Thursday lunch times, and his selections is of stunning quality and much lower price than Migros in Datca. The potatoes we bought there were the best roasters/fryers ever. The shop is open all hours day and night we've driven past and even when locked, someone quickly came with a key. A car is a must to take advanatge of all the area has to offer. Knidos is not far, and many more small villages are on the peninsula. All the locals are really friendly, no hard sell, and great hospitality. When we stopped to watch the almond harvest, handfuls of almonds were pressed on us, all understand hand and foot language, some speak english. you will find turkish hospitality at it's best, not the hassle and hustle of the towns like Marmaris. Boat trips go from Datca as well as from the village, but the cost is the same and the trips are longer going from Datca. The food in all the restaurants is good, we haven't had a bad meal anywhere, prices half of Marmaris seafront, which we visited just once to remind us why we didn't go there. Fresh fish has been the best we've eaten, the meats are delicous and the variety of salads is amazing. Sel's mum is a great cook and happy to prepare meals in the house. Even the teenagers, 13 and 15 were happy with the location. The sea is just beautiful, do get a mask and snorkel, there is so much life in the sea, it's amazing. I would definitely consider going again.
Owner's reply: We are really glad you enjoyed your stay at the Villa and hope you decide to come and visit again. Sel, Harun and Nermin.
“A lovely villa with stunning views over the Med and a charming garden and pool.”
The area, Mesudiye near Datca, Turkey is a jewel. It's a 2 and a half hour drive from Dalaman Airport. The last 20 miles are sooo beautiful over stunning mountain roads along the Datca peninsula with amazing views of the Med and Aegean. The villa is recently built in an elevated position overlooking the coast and villages below. There's a a couple of neighbours, a retired doctor just below and a farm a couple of hundred yards away - they've got some 'wakeful' dogs but it's too far to be a nuisance. Otherwise all is extremely tranquil. You need a car of course and you can drive to the beaches (nearest about 7-8 mins), but there's a huge selection from deserted coves to places with restaurants and bars where you are cosseted with drinks and sunbeds etc. The villa has everything you need, the pool is decent size and well maintained. The garden is charming and you can pick your own vegetables. There's a wide choice for going out in the evening - the local villages all have variety of restaurants or for something more lively, go into Datca (20 mins). We have been there three times and love it, the owner speaks English is very helpful and they are constantly improving and renewing. If I would change anything I'd rearrange the kitchen, it's OK you can do all you need, but if there's two of you in there you'll be tripping over each other... Highly recommended if you want to get away from tourist crowds in a very unspoilt region.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your review we hope to see you again soon Sel, Nermin and Harun
