“Amazing Experience” Having been to Yalikavak before I thought I knew where we were going to be staying. It was further out than my mind had told me, but this caused us no issues at all what so ever. I arrived with 3 of the children to stay for 2 weeks before my husband and eldest joined us for a further week. To be a woman alone here, caused us no problems, I felt safe, well looked after and happy. The Villa is great, helped by a second bathroom. My only negative observation, was having to use all three bedrooms, I took the downstairs bedroom as the protector- it was made up of two singles pushed together- it didn't ruin my holiday or put me off returning, I just would of preferred the double to be downstairs. The view is simply stunning, a short hilly walk takes you to the private beach, made up of locals and limited English people- gorgeous. I don't like the Brit abroad experience of English and beer everywhere- if that's what you are looking for this is not the location for you. I do not drive whilst in Turkey, I use the local Dolmus- easy, easy, easy. It stops every even hour outside the complex and every odd hour just up the road- it takes you in to the main town, you can easily hop over to another Dolmus to get to other locations- fairly priced, regular simple. It gives the kids another dimension to their holiday too. I would advise taking a photo of the front of the bus to remind you which one you need for your first few goes though! Back to the ~Villa, it was spacious clean and really nicely kept. The area is as said simply stunning so peaceful, view to die for. I made use of the washing machine and washing line as our stay was so long- I felt at home and would of happily stayed for the whole summer. Nothing not to like about the Villa, the area etc. A lot of negative views on holidaying somewhere like Turkey, but Yalikavak is so quiet and peaceful everybody is friendly and helpful, the town is not full of shops- Bodrum for that, which is a short Dolmus away. We did it a few times and had wonderful days out, but were happy to return to the peace of our villa. Our favourite hangout in the day if not at the local beach or pool was in Yalikavak at the surf shack, where the boys enjoyed paddle boarding, really chilled out atmosphere, they even got to be part of their promotional video. The local beach has a restaurant which is great for food and cheap. Plenty of local supermarkets - get a discount card on your first day it saves you loads. The Marina in Yalikavak is 'the St Tropez of Turkey', loads of mega yachts down there, allegedly famous peoples too- whatever its a visual experience, and some very expensive shops too. Walk along to the old town and that's where you find the within budget locations, surf shack, Dedes and the Secret garden- two of our favourite restaurants. All in all one of my best holidays ever and would without hesitation return to both Turkey and this Villa in particular.

“Family friendly, relaxing and modern villa” We loved the Lazy Dayz villa in Yalikavik. It was spacious, modern and well set up for families with young children. The different levels offered some privacy and lots of shade (and sun if you wanted it!). The villa itself was well maintained and the villa manager was extremely helpful whenever we needed assistance. This is the perfect villa for a trip where you just want to lounge by the pool and relax. The only draw back is that it is not walking distance to local shops/restaurants especially if you have small children. We ended up needing to take minibuses whenever we left to allow for space for multiple adults and carseats. A rental car (or multiple rental cars) is suggested.

“Fabulous - we'll be back!” On entering the villa, the first thing that strikes you are those incredible, uninterrupted views of the Agean and across the bay to the yachts in the marina - absolutely breathtaking! The villa itself is very spacious, set on three levels, with three bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. this means that 3 couples or a large family can be accommodated here very comfortably. The whole place is very stylishly appointed, with all the facilities you could ever want. You can tell the owners have put a great deal of thought into it (we particularly liked the electric curtains in the master bedroom!). The private pool at the villa was plenty big enough for us but there is a larger communal pool if you prefer. We love the town of Yalikavak, the new marina and all it has to offer, from traditional family-run restaurants to high class dining on the waters edge. What ever you prefer, this villa is ideally situated just outside the hustle and bustle but within a 5 minute drive, or dolmas ride (bus stops just outside the villa). Anyway, I think you get the drift - this place is very good indeed.
