Why shabbir chose Dalyan City Center
location and views
What makes this Villa unique
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if cancelled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Villa is in a good location 10 minutes walk into town, or 5 minutes if you hire bikes. The villa was very clean, beds are comfortable, down stairs furniture slightly dated or tired but spent most of time on veranda so didn't matter, plenty of hanging space, and the kitchen is fully equipped for most holiday dining. The pool was amazing much larger than we thought and the kids had so much fun in it. The pool man came every other day to clean and hover the bottom. Plenty of garden furniture and sun beds two hammocks. Air con very efficient especially at night. Great view of mountains all around. Would recommend for a great family holiday.
Very well equipped villa with spacious living area and shady veranda
The villa is conveniently situated for walking into town (10-15 mins) and the new market location.
It is well equipped for a family stay (plenty of crockery and cutlery, dishwasher and washing machine) and the pool/children's pool were well maintained.
It is very useful having two bikes at the property.
Ricky, the property manager, was very attentive and helpful.
It was also possible to contact Shabbir by email
We stayed with our daughter, son in law and grandson, have been here 3 times now and will come back again.

Stunning Villa in an amazing location
Myself and my family have just returned from a 10 night stay at this villa and we truly had the best time ever. The villa itself is very spacious and had everything we needed! The air conditioning was amazing and well needed in 35 degree temperatures! The pool was a great size for us all and was cleaned every day! The kids absolutely loved spending most of their day playing in here! We used the bbq most evenings and sat outside for eating. The outside shaded seating area was also amazingly helpful for the kids. The 2 hammocks were very relaxing and the grape vine growing over the top was beautiful. The garden was so beautiful, full of lemon, orange and pomegranate trees and pretty flowers. The passing cows everyday was also a joy for the kids who loved watching them. The location really is only a 10 minute stroll to the centre, with Migros, bim and sok, all supermarkets being right there as you come into the town. Bikes are brilliant as only took a couple of minutes to get to one of these supermarkets to get any food needed. We definitely recommend this villa and would definitely stay here again. Shabbir the owner and Pasha the manager were both always helpful before and during our holiday and were always on hand to answer any questions.
Hi Kelly your views about the villa /pool /garden is gave us load of comfort . Next year we will improve even more . Thank you and all dalyan lovers
Great location, lovely villa and large pool
This was our second time at the villa (first time we've ever returned to the same villa in all our years of family holidays) and we again had a fantastic time. The location is great, close to the riverside restaurants and local shops but peaceful and relaxing. The bikes are a bonus, leisurely cycle to get fresh bread beats walking in the heat any day. As with last time, any problems were quickly resolved - we had a problem with the wifi, emailed Shabbir and it was fixed later that day. Loved the fact the local turkeys meandered past a few times and the loved watching the daily trek by the three cows who always managed to squeeze between the car and garden wall no matter how tight it was!! Since our last visit, the villa was as we remembered, maybe do with a wee bit repair on garden walls and replacement linen but the villa manager told us that was in hand. The pool was clean and serviced daily as was the garden. Shabbir was really helpful throughout the booking process, great communications and was more than happy to let us have a late check out to fit in with our flight home. Will definitely be back!
A well placed Villa but which is tired and in need of some TLC
We know Dalyan and so chose this villla based primarily on its ideal location and as a result of the reviews that stated tha it was clean and well equipped.
We arranged transfer to the Villa from Dalaman airport via the owner and this was perfect, with our driver waiting at the airport on our arrival as planned.
We may have been unlucky as we were clearly the first customers of this year but when we arrived at the Villa it was clearly not very clean.
The kitchen floor was dusty, the bin was filthy and the cupboard under the sink was damp and therefore had small insects crawling around inside.
It was suggested that there would be a small welcome pack but this consisted of five stale cakes albeit there was fresh milk, teabags and water.
The freezer door had clearly been closed and switched off during the winter and switched on again prior to our arrival. It was therefore full of mould that had now been frozen... we spent the first morning cleaning things.
The bedrooms and bathrooms were clean but everything was tired and in need of replacing. The bedding and bath towels were clean but were clearly old and the pool towels were stained from years of use.
There were no spare towels or bedding.
The advert for the Villa stated that you could pay for an additional midweek clean of the Villa which we assumed meant that the Villa would be cleaned at the end of each week. We stayed sixteen days and the Villa was only cleaned by us.
The worst part on our arrival was the state of the pool. There was a lot of dirt at the bottom of the pool, green residue covering the tiles and a large quantity of leaves/ foliage floating on the top.
The first morning the pool man arrived and made comment that the pump was not working and took it away to be fixed.
He then arrived that afternoon and spent several hours cleaning and vacuuming the bottom and using the net to get the floating debris off the top.
It was clear tha the pool had not been cleaned for weeks and that the faulty pump prevented the pool man from cleaning the pool that morning. We have no idea why the pool was left until the day after our arrival but it was really off putting...
The render is falling off the garden walls and it is clear that the Villa is in need of some serious updating to bring it back to its former quality.
As a positive, the Villa is a small three bedroom property that is ideally placed, being a ten minute walk from town.
The air conditioning worked effectively and the wifi was very good.
Hi lee thanks for pointing the bad points and some good points.yes first booking may have some part to play . In the light of your views today I have asked to replace towels and buy more beddings and change the cleaning team lot of things could have been done in hours if you had e mailed me or pasha in Dalyan . still think if you had told us while you were there we would have sending cleaners and we could putt many things Wright . Pool engine brook on first day and was repaired next day this was not in our control . I have asked to replace towels and buy more bedding . shocket and felt low as I went in April and got many things done . still could not understand what did stopped you to not send a single e mail while you were in the villa and wifi was working . We could have sent the cleaners . But you choose to clean it your self . after 7 days we missed out but in 8th day a reminder could have had the cleaners with you .new maintance people let it bit down . we hope to see you again . Thanks
sorry for failures . S raza
Special interest holidays:
Dalyan is considered to be a village but it grows into a small town during the summer season. Situated alongside the river leading from a large lake (Koycegiz) from where it meanders through the delta and towering reeds (wrongly said to be the location for the filming of the African Queen but you will understand why some people believe this to be true) to the Mediterranean. Ancient delights abound with the magnificent rock tombs overlooking Dalyan from across the river, leading the way to the Ancient City of Caunos where there are superb Roman ruins to be found (concerts are occasionally held at the amphitheatre) and archaeologits continue to work there making new discoveries each year.
There are several mud baths, the most popular being made famous by visitors such as Sting and Dustin Hoffman, but the best are the natural hot springs only known by locals, or the Sultaniye Hot Springs at the far side of the lake - visited by many Turkish people due to the alleged healing properties
There is a good local access to Itzuzu 'Turtle Beach'. It is 25 mins by minibus and 40 minutes by public boat.
The nearest airport is Dalaman international which is 25 mins and 30 miles from the villa.
Dalyan town centre is a 10 minutes walk. Ortaca is the nearest city and is 10 miles away from Dalyan. Dalaman is 30 miles. Fethiye is 40 miles. Mamaris is 90 kilometers.
Mud bath is a boat trip away. All the restaurants, supermarkets and banks are a 10 minute walk.
