We are Alison and Paul, married for 40 years, we came to Dalyan in 1998 for our 25th Wedding aniversary. Fell in love with the place, both with busy careers visited about twice per year. With concerns about the UK stock market we took the plunge and invested in land in Dalyan in 2004 and had our Villa Zeytin Koru drafted and built in 2005. We have not looked back since. The villa was often fully booked so in 2007 we opened our second villa Orkide. Now retired from our jobs we really enjoy running our two holiday villas and get to Dalyan as often as we can. Our first grandson had his first birthday there and our youngest daughter had a Turkish wedding in the garden of Zeytin Koru.

Villa completely lived up to expectations. It was a family holiday with age range from 30 - 62 and was enjoyed by all. My husband is in a wheelchair and although villa is not specifically geared for disabled it worked very well and the owners did a fantastic job of sourcing a wheeled shower chair which made life a lot easier. The pool design also worked well for my husband due to the stair stepped access and sloped depth. There is plenty of room even when filled to find a quiet spot for solitude if you so wish. The villa location is also ideal for the nearest supermarket and the bakers. Also, in the evenings it was a very short stroll (across the road!) to bars, restaurants and shops. We also love Dalyan and the people - all most welcoming and helpful. Already booked up for next year :)

Well what can I say about Villa Zeytin Koru, firstly correspondence with Paul and Alison was fantastic, they answered quickly and nothing was too much trouble, they arranged our transfers which were very good and everything was ran smoothly, we met Sinan who looks after the Villa and he was extremely helpful, he helped arrange trips and we went to his restaurant for a meal a few times and he made such an effort for our daughter's 13th birthday she said it was the best birthday ever. Villa Zeytin Koru, the photos and description do not do it justice, it is a beautiful villa and really became our 'home' all of the bedrooms are lovely and the en suites were well equipped. The location of the villa could not be better, it was less than a minute to the supermarket and the town and what a beautiful place Dalyan is. Dalyan is a wonderful place, the view no matter where you are is stunning, the people are beyond friendly and nothing is too much trouble, people do try to call you into the restaurants but they are not pushy at all (unlike other places i've been). This is a stunning villa and I would highly recommend it. We have fallen in love with Dalyan and will definitely be coming back, hopefully to Zeytin Koru.

We are delighted that you all enjoyed your stay and would like to thank you all for taking such care of Zeytin Koru. As new Dalyan converts you will be welcomed back any time. We will pass on your kind comments to Sinan and his team. Many thanks for choosing to stay in our villa Zeytin Koru for your 2016 holiday.

Zeytin Koru is a wonderful villa and our large group of all ages thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We have been to Dalyan 4 times before and stayed before in hotels; now we would go back to this beautiful villa.

We had a great holiday, the villa and location were fantastic and we look forward to renting this villa again in the future.

We booked late and were attracted by the 'WOW' reviews and the value for money a late booking provided. As a family of 4, we had acres of room and the villa could easily host 10 as advertised - 8 probably ideal. Very clean, particularly well equipped and maintained, good wifi (to keep up to date with the Ashes!), loads of space and very well situated with views - awesome! Plenty of sun and shade (it was 38+ and scorchio while we were there in July), air con very welcome in the evening. Just a short walk into town (which is very touristy) and there's plenty of local shops, markets and restaurants to go at but you can feel as though you are a world away if you want - very little noticeable noise and mature garden provides a little haven. You need to dig a bit to find authentic local shops and restaurants if that's what you're after, rather than those aimed at the Brit tourist. Plenty to do if you're willing to get out and about by boat or car. I'd certainly go again, particularly if there's a free week available late (which is unlikely, and for very good reason!). In all, worth 5* overall - but directions from airport could be better!
