“You've tried the rest now try the best” Harvey FreedmanAliye yazir Residence Alanya

I am sorry if I sound like I am repeating myself, but I promise you each and very word I say is absolutely true, firstly apart from Ayse being a wonderfully creative and inventive chef, her hospitality is bar none, I must also mention that I unfortunately injured myself whilst on holiday, and her staff members Ali and Ersoy, were unbelievably supportive, to driving me here there and everywhere, Ali was the first to jump to my assistance when my leg gave way and I fell down, he drove both my wife and I to the hospital and stayed with us all the time we were there, and then drove us back to the apartment, and in addition on his own back, organised a nurse to visit me in the apartment, I would recommend Aliye Yazir Residence to anyone who wants to stay somewhere comfortable and be treated like a family member, once again no need to trust a Resturant you do not know, let Ashe spoil you rotten, with her wonderful Cuisine..We will defiantly be coming back
“Unbelievable views and a perfect villa” I was a little wary of booking a villa via the internet however when I started exchanging messages with Tim I was instantly reassured. Tim was very helpful with suggestions for transfers and restaurants.
The villa is beautifully decorated with the most incredible views, particularly from the terrace at the top. The pool was great and was where we spent most of our days! We were within walking distance of two beach clubs as well as the Villa Mahal restaurant and there was a mini market 5 minutes walk away.
For more choice of restaurants it was an easy and enjoyable water taxi ride into Kalkan and later on an inexpensive taxi journey back. Saklient Gorge is a great day out within easy reach and Kaputas beach is a short drive away.
It was great having the choice of dining out or making the most of the 2 BBQ's and eating on the terrace. The attention to detail in the decor of the villa was great and all of the candles were a very nice touch!
Overall we had a fantastic and relaxing stay and would definintely recommend the villa to friends.
“Relaxing Holiday Location” Travelled here in late June early July.
Excellent communication with Ian( the owner) following the booking.Prompt responses.
Great location overlooking Gocek with great views of the Marina area & hills.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this very comfortable villa.
The lovely terrace overlooking the pool was well used both day and night.
Had to contact Mehmet at the Management company re: faulty pool light FIRST CLASS response.
Booked 2 trips ( 12 island boat trip and Dalyan mud baths/turtles) both through Mehmet - excellent.
Many thanks for a relaxing holiday.
Thanks for a relaxing fortnight.
“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.
“!Location - location - location!!!” Long term visitors to Hisaronu and had admired these apartments many times on passing by. When the opportunity arose to stay here (Thanks Karen!!) we were quick on the uptake.
The apartment may not be the most spacious that we've ever stayed in BUT its right in the middle of everything! A short walk will get you to shops, bars and restaurants.
The apartment itself was very well equipped and everything worked. The cleaner should have come home with us - fabulous and very attentive! And I mean that in a positive way. The towel 'artwork' was fabulous - and she was a great cleaner too!!!
The pool area is lovely and we were lucky to there when it was quiet so could move with the sun! Plenty of sunbeds to choose from.
Communications with the owners are fabulous - 5* rating from us!
Would definitely stay here and again and highly recommend to anyone thinking about it!
“Fabulous” We have yet again a wonderful time in Kalkan, the Villa has everything you could possibly want, very modern, clean, great BBQ and outdoor space, perfect views, great location 5 mins walk in to town. Highly recommend
“TURKEY FEELING APARTMENT” I would highly recommend this apartment.It has a lovely morning sunshine terrace with pretty table and chairswhich are very comfortable, so you can enjoy the sun until midday. The apartment itself is clean and airy with a lovely middle east feeling interior and touches to it. When we arrived we had no problem getting the key from the security and there was everything you would need such as toilet paper, drinking water and kitchen roll to start you off. The beds are really comfortable and Sue had left very useful information about the Side area and the local people.The apartment had the comfort of a home with everything you would need in it. The swimming pool outside is gorgeous and it is surrounded by beautiful gardens.There is lots of history and good weather in Antalya region and Side itself. Dealing with Sue was a pleasure as she is very helpful and cares about her tenants.
Thank you Sue!
“Top class accomodation for affordable price” Villa Sophia is an excellent villa for your trip to Marmaris. It is well located in reasonable proximity to the beach and restaurants, spacious hall way, rooms and lounge, stunning back yard with good swimming and generally just an awesome venue.
“Loved it” Just came back from a very relaxing holiday in our favourite villa on the peninsula. Sundown Villa is very well appointed and spacious, and the view is simply gorgeous. The pool has a good size for a decent swim and we also used the villa's private platform to go for a swim in the sea. Mehmet, the housekeeper/gardener brought us fresh bread every morning and took care of the pool and the plants. Allan and Jane, the owners, were very helpful and even provided a nice welcome pack which provided everything for breakfast on the next morning. We will definitely return next year.
“Peaceful fun in the sun!” We have just returned from a fantastic fortnight at Vill Zakkum. The villa itself is immaculate and provided everything that our family of five needed. The pool was superb and plenty large enough for our three boys to play and swim in. The 'pool boy' visits every two days to check and maintain the pool which is great from a cleanliness and hygeine point of view. The location was a bit more remote than we expected but, once we had got our bearings, it was very easy to travel to and from Dalyan on the local Dolmus buses that will pick you up at the end of the road. They are very regular but finish at 11.00pm after which a taxi would be needed. The position out of town means that the villa is lovely and peaceful away from noise and traffic. Dalyan is a nice town with plenty to amuse without being too touristy and busy and is surrounded by beautiful countryside. Debbie was very friendly and helpful and easy to contact if needed.
A great holiday!
“Spring Turkish delight.” Beautifully clean and spacious villa with good facilities and magnificent views. The beds were particularly comfortable. Our hosts, Anne-Maree and Huseyin, were very welcoming and helpful, while Mavi the dog entertained our teenage boys. April is a great month to go if you like wildlife, greenery and walking, and visiting beaches, historical sites and restaurants when not busy. Swimming in the pool and sea will be more bracing, however! Climbing My Olympos to the snowline, then using the cable car to get to the top were highlights, as was seeing the chimaera (flames from the rocks) above Chirali.
“Perfect family holiday at Villa Louise” Villa Louise was fantastic in every way. Perfect relaxing holiday. The villa has everything that you need. Lovely short walk to the town. The locals are lovely and friendly.
“Fantastic!” we have just returned from a 2 week stay and had an amazing time, the villa is perfect. Spent everyday around the pool which is a great size and felt totally chilled by the end. The pool and villa were cleaned nearly everyday and nothing was too much trouble for anyone. We used the facilities at the orka hotel a few times which were an added bonus that you don't normally get in a villa, they even pick you up in a minibus if its too hot for the 5 minute walk! If your looking for a villa in turkey then this is the one!
If you’ve a passion for beautiful beach resorts, lush landscapes and captivating ancient ruins, then look no further than Turkey. It's one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world and for very good reason...
East Meets West
A country which combines the cultures of both East and West, Turkey’s very landscape has been sculpted by Greeks, Romans, Byzantine Emperors and the Ottomans over the last several millennia. Here, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean influences blend authentically to form an exciting, vibrant and cosmopolitan country, ideal for travellers with an adventurous streak.
There’s so much to see, do and experience in Turkey, your itinerary will be packed. Walk the historic streets of Istanbul, marvel at the ruins of Ephesus where you’ll find the Temple of Artemis (one of the wonders of the ancient world) or bathe in the crystal blue waters of Antalya, Bodrum and Marmaris.
A Warm Welcome
You can expect plenty of warmth from the weather and the locals, too. Turkey’s people are renowned for being some of the friendliest in Europe, so don’t be surprised if you make friends with a waiter or shop attendant during your travels.

Golden Height Villa 14 Harmony
Tranquil location with excellent views.
We stayed in this villa in September 2017, and again in May 2018, and I have to say we were not disappointed on our return, it is one of the best villas we have stayed in within this area. ( we have been coming to the area for 20+ years)
The views are to die for, and having your own private pool is always a bonus.
The facilities within the villa are excellent, with every bedroom having ensuite facilites, The kitchen is well equipped should you decide to dine in.
The villa also offers sky TV and internet access, something very few villas have on offer.
I was amazed to see not one but two safes installed, ( many villas do not have this facility) so felt there was adequate protection for ones personal possessions.
I was also impressed at the added security features this villa had to offer, with an alarm system, and wooden battens in all recesses of the patio doors, for that added peace of mind.
Yes we have booked again and can not wait to return later this year. …
Lovely central Hisarönü holiday apartment with 2 shared pools.
I have been coming to the Hisarönü area for 8 years now, and have stayed in various apartments as a preference to hotels. This apartment is a good size, with a nice balcony area, and makes you feel like a home from home, and great shared pool area. Location wise it’s short walk right in to central Hisarönü but away from the main strip so that you have the peace and tranquility when you want a relaxing day. Will definitely chose to stay here again. …
2 Bedroom Duplex Apartment
I’ve just come home for a chilled girls holiday at this wonderful villa. It was clean and spacious and had lots of balcony space with outside seating. The villa comes with its own sunbeds and overlooks the shared pool area. The pool gets the sun all day and is really relaxing. There is also a taxi button just outside the villa that calls a taxi for you that takes you the 5 minutes into Calis Beach. There are lots of nice restaurants and bars as well as activities such as boat trips. The owner was also really helpful and quick to respond. There was also a helpful to do pack left in the villa too. Would definitely book to stay here again! Thanks …
Best Holiday location in Bodrum-Gumusluk - Duplex villa with sea view
This villa has breath taking views and is so well kept. It’s in the best location of the compound ; 5 minuets walk from the pool and the service bus for the beach , which is only a 5 minuete ride. The location is also very quite which was definitely a plus for us. The villa itself is very well kept and clean, complete with dishwasher, which was great!!
We enjoyed our stay here so much as a whole family and will definitely book this villa again! …
Dalyanjewel 6 bedroom 6 bathroom private pool, free WiFi ,aircon
We stayed at Dalyanjewel as a family with 7 children. Charles was very helpful and his friend Kemal went over and above to get my daughter to the hospital when she fractured her toe at the mud baths. The villa was clean and spacious. The children enjoyed the pool and the grass for some football. Lovely quiet area and all amenities within reach. Excellent holiday and can’t wait for next year …
Yaz evi (Summer House)
The villa was excellent with everything we needed. Pool great, rooms comfortable and views amazing.
The booking process was made easy by Heather which gave us confidence before we arrived.
Any small problems or requests were resolved swiftly by the villa manager.
You can walk into Kalkan if your not immobile but taxis are a must back. They are cheap enough and plentiful so no issue at all.
All the recommendations from Heather were good( restaurants , trips and info pack etc). Heather arranged our transfers with Ayhan who also became our reliable taxi throughout the week.
Kalkan was new to us having been to 5 other Turkish resorts but it blew the competition away. Stunning!
We would return and recommend without hesitation. …
