“Best family holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We do a lot of traveling so when I say Villa Samimi and Dalyan was one of our best holidays....I mean it! We have two boys (12 and 10). There is so much to do here. Ruins, tombs, mud baths, thermal baths, boat trips, beach (with a great turtle hospital), markets, restaurants. I would recommend a car as the surrounding area is beautiful and gives full flexibilit. Villa Samimi is fantastic! The pool (which really does have a 50m two lane lap pool) is amazing. We enjoyed a few days just relaxing/swimming in between exploring. Dot and Iain (owners) are so helpful. The villa is very well equipped. No tv or wifi which is a blessing! Plenty of wifi in town. Dalyan is so friendly and we felt incredibly safe there. If you love dogs....there is a dog shelter near town...we spent a morning walking the dogs and have now started the process of bringing two dogs back to The Netherlands. We will most certainly be back and will stay at Villa Samimi for sure.

“An excellent villa in a great, quiet location with easy access to town.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013 for a stay in July 2012

Our holiday this year in Dalyan, staying at Villa Samimi, was voted the best family holiday yet by us all. .
The villa was beautifully presented and immaculately clean, both indoors, and around the pool, patio area and gardens. Though the long pool was shared, the patio area and location of loungers offered great privacy.
Our teenagers adored the fact that the fantastic pool with its private pod area, was just metres away from the kitchen door and the fridge, and for the majoriy of the time, we had the pool completely to ourselves.
Dandu was happily at hand to greet us on our arrival and provided us with advice and information about the town, organising the delivery of drinking water and transport.
Town is only 10-15 minutes walk away. We took advantage of food shopping at the market as well as the supermarkets. There is a wonderful atmosphere in the evening amongst the bars and restaurants which line the streets and river edge.
Turkey offers plenty of excursions to keep the whole family amused. A holiday to remember for all the right reasons.
Thank you Dot and Ian, for your help and information when we booked your lovely holiday home. We would definately recommend Villa Samimi highly to everyone.

“Perfect villa in a perfect location”

Villa Samimi is a lovely, fully equipped villa with a truly amazing pool, that although shared with the other 3 villas that is next to, was never busy at all.
The villa is located in a quiet and unspoilt area but within only a 10 to 15 minute walk into the town with a full and varied choice of restaurants and bars, with something to suit all ages and tastes.
The villa also benefits from the lovely Dondu who looks after you during your stay....from the cleaning of the villa, to arranging transfers to and from the airport, water, beer deliveries and a wealth of info about the area of Dalyan and beyond,
A perfect holiday retreat and one we wouldn't hesitate to re visit :)

We have been to Dalyan on several occasions, but this was our 1st time at Villa Samimi, we were delighted with the accomodation. The villa had everything we could possibly need for our stay.The 50 metre pool is fantastic, and each of the 4 villas which share the pool have a private little pool area. sunbeds with matresses are provided. A lovely shaded dining area surrounded by an attractive garden, which was attended to daily. A 10 minute walk takes you into Dalyan centre, where the vast array of restaurants await. We will definately return to Villa Samimi, A wonderful holiday had by all. Thanks

“A great villa with an amazing swimming pool in a stunning setting”

We stayed at Villa Samimi in October at the discounted couples only rate so had ample space in this really well equipped villa. It would still suit 4-6 people really well. It was a real bonus having a washing machine as it saves so much on luggage when you can wash clothes while you're there!

Dot & Iain (the owners) were extremely efficient from point of enquiry through to refund of the breakages deposit at the end of ours stay. Their prompt and informative email communication was very reassuring and we felt they went "the extra mile" in providing personal recommendations local restaraunts, bars and suggested activities. These recommendations came in very handy dury our stay. We ate out every night and enjoyed every meal we had in Dalyan - there are some really authentic local eateries.

Villa Samimi's setting is fantastic - located in a quiet part of town and with 360 degree panoramic views of the hills. The walk into town takes about 10 mins to get to the main eating places and shops (although there is a smaller shop for essentials a bit nearer). There is wildlife in abundance. From the villa we saw owls and various other birds - twice a hawk swooped within 6 feet of us trying to catch sparrows in the garden (and a beautiful garden it is). Swimming from the beach (a lazy meandering boat ride past the rock tombs or a scenic dolmus ride away) we were lucky enough to snorkle with two large adult turtles a matter of feet away - an amazing experience. We probably enjoyed Dalyan more in October than we might have done in peak season when it would have been much busier and there was none of the persistent hustling that you can get in other places. We were lucky with the weather for the time of year too - high 70's to mid 80's with pure sunshine on all but one day of our fortnight.

From the housekeeper to the cleaner to the gardener everyone was really friendly. Our airport transfer was arranged via the booking procedures and being just 30 mins from the airport the villa is a great getaway for shorter stays too.

I've left the best until last... the swimming pool! What a fantastic design. It is shared by 4 villas so you get a 50m long pool (Olympic size!) but each villa has a circular bit that extends off it into your own private garden. Although we enjoyed a number of activities in Dalyan and the surrounding area (boat trip, jeep safari, Caunos ruins) we also spent quite a few days by the pool just swimming and talking in the views. Although the 4 villas are next door to each other (I gather it is sometimes possible to book up to 3 villa's for larger gatherings) you still have all the privacy that you might wish for with patio and dining areas that are not overlooked by the neighbours.

We have no hesitation in recommending Villa Samimi. The owners have got pretty much everything right, from the villa itself through to the informative and helpful communication. We returned feeling really relaxed and refreshed.
