We were a party of 2 parents with 3 daughters and 2 boyfriends all over 20. For some of us it was the second visit to Dalyan and it didn't disappoint! From the moment we saw the fabulous villa to the moment we left, we experienced the most enjoyable and pampered week possible. It was just 2 minutes to the nearest supermarket to get fresh bread and most items we needed, but otherwise we would have been happy just to sit around the fab pool, with the occasional dip to keep cool. Fav bits: lying on the lilo in the pool, a candellit barbecue under the pergola watching the lizard, the sweet owl watching us from the chimneypot, delicious meals next to the river, the lovely people of Dalyan who so generously welcomed us to their town, the funny market stallholders on Saturday ("Buy one get me free" - "cheaper than shoplifting"), the moonlit barbecue and cruise ( if you have a large party like us it's a bit cheaper to hire your own boat), the beautiful beach and turtle sanctuary (put on plenty of sunscreen) and, of course, just admiring the amazing house and pretty gardens. Bad bits: yes, the upstairs kitchen and main access through bedrooms is not the best, but the view from upstairs (expecially from the lovely balcony) of the rock tombs and gardens more than made up for this inconvenience. I can see exactly why it was arranged like this... In answer to a previous criticism about supplies at the villa I have always brought small amounts of washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, washing powder, bin bags, etc with me to last the week. There were supplies there already in our week which we didn't actually have to use and we left things like milk, water, beer, sauces in the fridge for the next person.
Shana was amazing at checking that we had done all the formalities before leaving England and Sharon in Dalyan looked after us really well. Transfer drivers were excellent and always on time. We all shed a tear on leaving and are already planning our next holiday to the villa. Perfect!!

We have just spent 16 nights at Jumali House and, could not disagree more with the previous reviewer’s comments. The house is wonderful and the upside down style provides for a fantastic panoramic view from the first floor balcony where we ate breakfast each morning. We did not barbecue or eat in a lot in the evenings (eating out was so cheap) but we did lunch most days by the poolside on the downstairs covered balconies and did not find the layout inconvenient at all. The outdoor living space could not be better with fruit trees and grape vines surrounding the barbecue and outdoor kitchen and covered eating and lounging areas. The pool and colourful gardens were a striking main feature and we spent hours in the pool each day, and several times late at night in the floodlit pool. The staff from the company Kaunos who are contracted to look after the property for the owners are very friendly and very, very helpful. We only had one very minor issue which they attended to within half an hour of calling and the pool attendant was there daily, ensuring the pool and surrounding areas were kept spotlessly clean. Eating out was a pleasure, although we did find some of the menus a bit unimaginative, however the meals and drinks were very cheap. A meal with a bottle of wine and drinks for our two kids was averaging between £50 and £75. A tip is to seek out the new wine shop next door to the Kaunos Villa’s office which sells Turkish wines at about a third less than the supermarkets and has a number of good wines. The boat trips are a must with trips to the beech and the market town of Koycegiz on the public boats costing only 10 TL (£3) return for adults and half for children. You can also hire one of the many boats privately (negotiate a price) with your own driver who will take you wherever you want to go. This was one of the highlights of our stay as the driver/owner handed the controls of the 30’ boat to the children soon after leaving the berth. In town you will see fresh water long necked turtles feeding in the river beside the restaurants and if you’re lucky (as we were one day) the odd Loggerhead Turtle which has strayed too far upstream. A visit by bus to the Sea Turtle Rescue Centre is also a must. Finally another must is a visit to the Ley Ley restaurant for a lavish Turkish Breakfast. You can be uplifted and returned free of charge from the villa for a short 10min journey and on your return the driver will take you to see the nesting storks and past the orange orchards before returning (with a hat full of oranges). Dalyan has no noisy night clubs or bars and has not suffered from over commercialisation and retained its small town character. We had a wonderful holiday on our first trip to Turkey and Dalyan and would highly recommend the area and villa for a fantastic holiday.

We were a large extended family party making a return visit to Dalyan. Jumali House photographs very well and looks stunning in the advertising material, however we found that the house does not flow well with no easy access to the property on the ground floor except through the bedrooms - not always convenient. The kitchen, which we found to be not very well equiped for self catering, is located on the upper floor and as a result all food, plates, glasses, cutlerly etc have to be carried down (and back up) the external metal staircase. On arrival each bathroom had one toilet roll which was certainly not enough to last for the two weeks we spent there, no washing up liquid and no dishwasher tablets. All in all I would have expected better for the amount we paid.
The garden and pool were wonderful, and the views from the villa are stunning. The villa is located very close to the town centre. Dalyan is a wonderful town which we would thoroughly recommend.It was lovely to be back again and we do plan a return visit but not to this villa.

Many thanks for your response and we are so pleased you enjoyed your holiday. I thought it might be useful just to clarify the position re access from the first floor...there are three ways of getting from the first floor living room/kitchen to the pool/garden. First there is a feature external staircase which comes out at the front/side of the villa . The other is via the internal marble staircase leading from the living room outside to the back garden. The third is by continuing down this staircase which provides access to the pool/garden via any of the 3 ground floor bedrooms. I am sorry if you didn't find this convenient - but having the living room on the first floor is considered by our guests to be one of the best design features of Jumali House. Thanks though for your review and actually for the mosly very positive comments.

Our party consisted of two families of four, with the 'children' being teenagers. Eveyone loved the holiday. Jumali house was wonderful, the pool was amazing (very clean and warm), the views were amazing (especially the evening/night) and the gardens were beautiful. There seemed to be a resident lizard who saw us most days and the local birds continued to ignore our noise and drink from the pool throughout the day. The weather was excellent (and very hot) and we had no power cuts. The pool man came every day (morning and evening ) and the gardeners rolled up on wednesday and gave the whole garden a complete once over. The flowers were spectacular too. There were very few people around in the surrounding houses (which may have been lucky as we do make a lot of noise when we are playing in the pool!). Also the local Oruc drivers were very timely picking us up and taking us back to the airport.

We spent nearly all our time in the villa (mostly in the pool area) or in town at the restaurants. We liked all the ones we went to but the ones on the river have the nicest settings. We walked mostly but the two bikes were used for quick trips to the supermarket - it was easier to cary the water melon in the basket !

We did have a day out at the beach, we got a local boat to ourselves and he took us to the beach (waiting until we finished), then to the turtles (again he went out of his way to make sure the 'children' all saw the turtles) and stopped many times on the river to show us wildlife and views. It was great value for money..only a little bit more expensive than the water taxi would have been !

We have just returned from our holiday at Jumali House in Dalyan. From opening the garden gate at the Villa everything has the Wow factor. A large well laid out and maintained garden, a pristine swimming pool and then the Villa! it was immaculate throughout with nice furniture and fittings and you could tell that it had been meticulously designed.
The Villa is situated just past the end of a small park, walk through the park and onto the shops and bars only takes a few minutes so it is really nice to be staying in a quiet area yet not too far from where all the life is.
We had some good nights cooking a barbeque in the garden of the Villa and eating it under the Pergola.
It is worth getting the old lady to row you accross the river and then walk about 20 minutes to visit the ruins of the old Amphitheatre, on the way back stop and have pancakes and fresh orange juice before being rowed back accross the river.
It was 12 years before this when we had a holiday in Turkey but after staying at Jumali House and what Dalyan has to offer we cannot wait to go back again.
