Properties on Holiday Lettings can be sorted/ranked in the following ways:
Orders properties using various data points, in particular: ratings, number of bedrooms/bathrooms, minimum number of nights, and data relating to the interest in/bookings of the property through us, including the advertiser’s rate of providing quotes to travellers who make enquiries. Other factors include price, property capacity, number of photographs, location, amenities, appearance in search results, page views, and the advertiser’s responsiveness and cancellation rate.
Price low to high / high to low
Orders properties based on either (i) the property’s minimum nightly price, if the traveller has searched without dates, or (ii) the average nightly price for the applicable week of the year, if the traveller has input dates.
Orders properties by total number of reviews attached to the listing (highest to lowest), irrespective of average score. Where there is a listing with the same number of reviews as another (or a listing with no reviews), properties are sorted according to their proximity to the searched location.
“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.
“Yalikavak is a real gem and Villa Helene was ideal” We have just returned from Villa Helene and have had a truly wonderful time. This is our third visit to Turkey, but the first to the Bodrum Peninsula and the Yalikavak area. We were very pleasantly surprised and impressed with Yalikavak; it has everything. It’s big enough to provide enough to do, but small enough to be friendly and intimate and, critically for us, to remain authentic. From the old harbour to the new marina, from the many lovely restaurants to the beach clubs and their associated jetties and pontoons, we have really enjoyed ourselves. Having a car also meant that we could experience places like Gundogan,Gumusluk and Geris, and next time we’ll explore further. Provisions shopping was easy and varied and the town itself was really pleasant to just walk awhile and enjoy its many little and varied areas. The dolmus service also provides a really good travel option. And, we must mention the breeze that was an almost constant – heavenly!
The villa was perfect, in an accessible location, and had everything we needed. It was clean, tidy, and big enough for us not to feel on top of each other. There is a lovely pool (as well as the option of the additional shared pool) and outside sitting areas that really enhanced the experience, from which the views are just stunning! We’ve had many villa holidays abroad and this was one of the best for sure. We’d also like to thank Sara and Peter for their help when called upon, and to Annie at Peninsula for the very efficient booking service.
“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.
