Having stayed at the Escape during its Hotel period, I had no qualms whatsoever of introducing my bunch of school friends to this Absolutely Wonderful Villa. We
are seven friends from school ( all 65+ ) who love each other's company and holidaying together. The Escape ticks every box, all rooms are beautifully furnished, clean & wonderfully presented as well as all having en suite facilities. The Five lower rooms open on to the Pool ( Which is immaculate ) The terrace above is ideal for drinks & watching the sunset followed by Dinner under the stars. Perfect for doing your own catering , especially at breakfast, where people all rise at different times.!
The place is just built for relaxation, there are places to go & see, or not, the decision is entirely yours
Susan & Christopher were always on call should we be in need of any assistance,
( needless to say that was never required )
Enjoyed it so much, we are now in the process of sorting out again for next year,
maybe with an extra person ( 8 this time, who knows )
So much to do & see in the area, and only 25 minutes from Dalaman Airport.
Need I say any more............! ! ! !
We almost passed up the opportunity to rent this villa. We kept seeing it on various web-sites but couldn't believe it could be true due to the price being too good to be true. Eventually we made inquiries and did a bit more research into the history and realised it was all true. You could get this villa for an unbelievable price so we grabbed it and have now just got back from a fantastic stay.
Susan and Chris, the owners did absolutely everything to make our stay a complete success. Bear in mind that this is their home, you soon understand the quality of everything that surrounds you here They even moved out so we could rent the whole villa. It is difficult to put into words just how welcoming and helpful they were during our stay.
This used to be a small boutique hotel and was voted the best small hotel in Turkey and it is very easy to understand why. The rooms and facilities are all immaculate and to a very high standard. Imagine renting a villa but with everything being of a luxury hotel standard. The grounds are full of beautiful plants trees and shrubs. The scent coming from the wisterias is very calming after a frantic afternoon in the pool. This has to be one of the biggest pools I have seen in comparing villas.
On arrival Susan and Chris welcomed us and showed us around and then mentioned that they had stocked the fridge with a few staples. Well that was an understatement as there was enough food to keep us all going for a while. We saw Susan and Chris some days as they came to maintain the pool and water the plants but very early in the morning so sometimes we were not even aware. As they were staying with friends nearby, they were always available to help should anything go wrong. I can honestly say the only event we had was a powercut and Susan came straightaway to sort it out.
Like one of the other reviewers it might be easier to tell of the possible things that could have been better. Well - I've thought long and hard and cannot think of anything. In short we all had a simply wonderful time and were sad to leave. We wish Susan and Chris every success for the future.
We were a group of friends, looking for a beautiful villa, not too far from town, nice & quiet, where we could laze by the pool or day trips out............... Found just to place.
Absolutely stunning, off the beaten track, WONDERFUL.!.! . The villa has a total of 8 rooms, 5 of which are on the pool terrace, kitchen with everything you could possibly require & the dinning area overlooking the valley.
That said Gocek is so close, with some lovely restaurants. A car might be advisable (for supplies & days out ) however Susan & Christopher are nearby to assist & advise. i.e. local Turkish restaurants for breakfast or dinner. Nothing & I mean nothing is too much trouble for these two.
Christopher is around on a regular basis, to maintain & clean the pool, which by the way is kept in excellent condition. His pride & joy...!
All told you won't be disappointed.
This is a first class property and the rooms and outside areas are immaculate.
Susan and Chris are outstanding hosts.
We felt like we owned the house during our stay.The view of the valley were fantastic and its truly a one in a million property that we will no doubt return to.
The house can be rented as a whole or you can rent rooms.Both options are very well suited to the layout.
You will not find a better option in this area and cannot wait to return.
We love Turkey and visit every year we found this place on Trip advisor and thought it looked the perfect place for a family holiday with our grown up children. We received a lovely welcome from the owners who are a friendly British couple. They assured us they were close by should we need any help or advice. We had the whole place to ourselves! The rooms are fresh, airy, have en suite and spectacular views. This is so much more than a B&B. The infinity pool over looks the valley with Gocek marina only 5 min away by car. Gocek is a stunning port and we enjoyed boat trips and the wonderful Turkish restaurants.
Our children and partners were blown away by this lovely villa, privacy and beauty. We will definately return and couldn't praise the Escape highly enough. It truly is the perfect Escape........
If you want to completely relax then this is the place for you. The tranquil setting and beautiful surroundings will soothe away any stress and leave you feeling restored. Chis & Susan are excellent hosts and welcome you with warmth and friendship. You will need a car to get out and about, but the main roads are very good.
