“Fabulous holiday in Dalyan”
Reviewed September 29, 2016 for a stay in August 2016
2
people found this review helpful

We visited Dalyan, and stayed at Villa Beste, for two weeks in August 2016 with our 5 young children aged between 3 and 11.

Villa Beste is in a good location a short walk from Daylan's centre. It's probably a good 10 minutes right to the heart of the town but you are only a few minutes walk from shops and restaurants. There is a small corner shop on the next corner that we used for water and beer etc, but there are a few bigger supermarkets in Dalyan where we did bigger shops, as well as butchers and greengrocers that we used for meat and fruit/veg.

First impressions of Villa Beste were good. The owner was waiting at the villa when we arrived in our airport transfer minibus and quickly showed us around and left. The villa is a decent size and was plenty big enough for the 7 of us. The lounge and kitchen area are well equipped. The pool is lovely and was more than big enough for us.

One thing worth noting is that there is air conditioning in the downstairs, and 2 of the bedrooms only. The other 2 bedrooms have fans only. This is clearly stated on the description of the villa but I hadn't really noticed. It was a bit of a heatwave when we arrived and so the 2 bedrooms without air-con were really sweltering and the fan was doing little but push the hot air around the rooms. The double bedroom on the top floor was the hottest but the owner did come back and open the window up there for us to at least allow some air in. After a couple of days the heat dropped a little and the rooms were then more bearable. In the meantime we got around it by wetting our hair before going to bed to cool off!

The air conditioning in the other bedrooms and downstairs was a little temperamental but we called the owner a couple of times and he came out and made it work again.

We also found the DVD player not to be working (which we used quite a lot as the kids would have a break from the sun with a movie most days). The owner came and brought us a new one straight away.

The entrance to the villa is gated and you can lock the gate so you do feel quite secure. The front door has a variety of locks on it and feels secure, however the back door less so, but it was fine anyway. There is a decent porch before the front door which was useful for our buggy and array of shoes.

The inside of Villa Beste did feel a little bit tired in places, but that is reflected in the price and is made up for by the location.

The pool area was brilliant and we spent much of our time there. The outdoor table was much too small so for the duration of our stay we swapped it for the indoor one and then we were able to all fit around it for our meals.

There were only 5 sun loungers which wasn't a problem for us as the children didn't really use them but may be an issue if 6 adults came to the villa. There were also only 6 chairs around the outdoor table (despite being a villa that sleeps 7) but that was also fine for us as we used the highchair for our smallest child.

There is a reasonable sized garden with plenty of washing line and pegs so very handy to hang up wet towels and clothes etc. We used the washing machine a fair bit and that worked well, along with the dishwasher.

The BBQ is only a very small portable one which we were a bit disappointed to see when we first arrived however it worked fine and we alternated BBQs at the villa with eating out in Dalyan. We had the majority of our lunches and breakfasts at the villa and found plenty of good bread, meats, cheeses, humous etc in the supermarkets.

The beds were comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped - the only thing we couldn't really find was some tools for the BBQ so bought a grabber thing and left it there but it was only a small one. There was already a small one there but you kind of need 1 for the coal and 1 for the food.

The pool was clean, the owner came to clean it each morning. A gardener came round frequently and cut the lawn etc. We had a mid-stay clean as we were there for 2 weeks, the cleaners did a very thorough job and were there for about 5 hours or more!! A bit unnecessary perhaps, just some clean sheets, towels and a quick go-over would have been fine!

Daylan itself is a marvellous area, so beautiful. Getting the boat to the beach was fun. We also got the bus and went to the turtle hospital which was lovely.

We wandered down to Dalyan for a drink or pancake or milkshake most days. We also got the boat to the small mud baths. If you walk to the end of the river path there is a guy (Mustafa) who will take you over to the other side for 10 TL per person, he did the 7 of us for 50 TL so well worth it as the boats down at the harbour will charge more like 130TL.

We went on a day boat trip with Volkan's Adventures which was amazing. We did the Devils bay trip, the kids absolutely loved jumping off the top of the boat and the BBQ and breakfast on board. Highly recommended.

All in all, an absolutely fabulous family holiday. The reason for 4 stars is just because the villa could be updated a bit. This won't impact on your enjoyment though so if you have booked or are thinking of booking don't fret. You'll have a fab time.

“A comfortable, clean, and well maintained property ideally situated within 10 minutes walk of the town centre.”
Reviewed October 30, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My wife and I had a lovely holiday in Dalyan and the icing on the cake was the Villa Beste. It is ideally situated within easy walking distance of the town and river boats but far enough away to be out of the hustle and bustle. The nearest of many good restaurants is only about 100 metres away. The villa had everything we needed for a comfortable stay and was well managed by Alp and his family who are very warm and friendly people. We did a lot of walking around the local area and for us, Villa Beste was indeed the best we could have stayed in. If we decide to go back to Dalyan for a holiday we would certainly choose Villa Beste to stay in.

“Comfort and convenience”
Reviewed July 24, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

As a three generation family of seven we spent a very enjoyable two weeks here. As has already been stated in other reviews, the villa is very clean and well equipped. Alp welcomed us on arrival and proved most helpful when we reported the empty gas bottle. It was swiftly replaced. The weather was hot so we enjoyed cooling off in the pool and sitting in the shade on the terrace where a gentle breeze wafted over us. The garden is lovely and well maintained. We were in easy access of local amenities and there were plenty good restUrants within easy reach. There is plenty to do in Dalyan, however most of the time we were content to play in the pool and chill out.
The wi- fi worked on the first floor and occasionally in other areas.

“Lovely Dalyan”
Reviewed October 17, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

What a lovely villa so clean and a nice garden and pool which was deep which is a it daunting for bad swimmers especially as the ladder was at the deep end! It was well equipped and we had a couple of great BQ's one thing which isn'tclear is one of the bathrooms is on the ground floor not a problem for us but it could be as the stairs aren't easy. the one bad thing was the noisy dogs next door, they were fastened up all day and night quiet all day in the middle of the night they started barking and worse howling the night before we came home they were awful take some ear plugs. Dalyan is a great place beautiful plenty of trips try Ali G's we had good trips especially the jeep safari good fun and informative. Good restaurants the Patio and secret garden especially all in all a great holiday and the boat taxi to beach is great

The villa is modern and well equipped and just on the edge of the town centre so not too noisy. (Very easy to walk in to the centre though). Alp was very welcoming and helpful (including when we accidentally locked ourselves out!).

“Lovely villa , lovely location”
Reviewed August 5, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed at Villa Beste for 2 weeks at end of July and beginning of August . Alp arranged our transfer from Dalaman airport and return - this was very efficient - the driver was waiting for us on arrival and even stopped off en route to get us bottles of cold water, a lovely touch .
Alp was at the villa to greet us and showed us round . The villa itself was perfect : really clean and comfortable with everything you would require . The pool and garden area was beautiful and we spent far more time just lazing by the pool than intended ! The loungers were so comfortable as they had nice mattresses and the patio area was well shaded for the hotter parts of the day . Location wise this villa is in a perfect location , really quiet and peaceful yet only a 10 minute walk into Dalyan town centre . This was our 5th visit to Dalyan and can't recommend it enough . I would certainly recommend Villa Beste and would love to return in the future . Alp was very helpful and contactable easily by texting . Our friends visited Dalyan from Sarigerme on one of the days and Alp kindly let them stay overnight .
