Villa Joy is situated in a quiet part of the quaint Turkish town of Dalaman. The English translation of its address is Moonlight Street which really summarises it's location. Methap Sok has a street light but, bring a torch for those late night / early morning arrivals and departures.
Villa Joy is large and airy. It is surrounded by fields and orange and lemon groves. Do not be suprised to see cows, goats and sheep grazing on the other side of the villa walls.
The property will sleep 6 in comfort. It has a large terrace with barbecue - perfect for al fresco dining and entertaining.
The swimming pool and gardens are fully furnished with sun loungers, tables and parasols and a selection of pool inflatables for children of all ages.
Although you can walk into Dalaman - the nearest bakers being ten minutes, and central Dalaman twenty minutes - a car is essential to make the most of the many attractions within a 30 minutes drive, although the dolmus stand (local buses) can be reached within 15 minutes and from where you can take a regular bus service to Sarigerme, Salsara Bay, Fethiye, Gocek, Dalyan and Olu Deniz.
The king size master bedroom has a large ensuite with spa bath.
All bedrooms are fully furnished with ample storage space.
A separate utility room provides washing machine and ironing facilities.
A complimentary guest welcome service is provided. Guests will be contacted by the villa manager who will give advice on the dalaman area, buses, trips and other informations. Guests can use the villa manager for essential support during their stay. A welcome pack containing essential foodstuffs to start your holiday is included.
Dalaman is an area of natural beauty located between the sea and the mountains. It is located close to many areas of historic and geographical interest.
Over exploitation of the area is prohibited by the protection given to the rare loggerhead turtles that frequent the river and the beach.
Dalaman town has many shops restaurants bars and tea gardens. It has its own uncommercialised beach with lots of wildlife. The town is ideally situated for many resort areas but perfect if you require a quieter place to base yourself. There is a tunnel to connect the towns of Gocek and Dalaman.
Dalyan is a must. The Turquoise river is a conservation area and offers interesting river cruises. Visit the Kaunos archeological site and see the carved rock tombs. Walk along Iztuzu beach - the worlds 6th most famous beach - which is a sanctuary for sea turtles.
Golf courses are due to be completed in the area in 2008.

The villa was exactly as described. The manager Mehmet, was very good at keeping in touch and most helpful. The pool was fab and not as deep as some other villa pools which I preferred. The area was very nice and welcoming, not a lot of tourists but friendly locals. Local area had everything we needed and very good location for travelling to other areas such as Fethiye, Akkaya Gardens, Dalyan, Gocek, and Marmaris 1.5 hours by car. A must is the local Turkish Hamaam -absolutely amazing experience and very cheap. We felt very comfortable and at home in the villa and it was very clean and tidy. A/C in bedrooms, showers and jacuzzi all worked well.
If theres anything which was a bit negative was the lack of / slow communication from the owner prior to travel and the fact that the laundry wasnt collected once during our 10 day stay although it should have been collected twice a week.
In addition the villa is in need of a little minor maintenance -a light switch came off in our hands, (we had to put it back together), a wardrobe door fell of the hinges and almost landed on my foot, the tap water in master en suite was very very weak and a towel rail fell off the wall. These are things we wouldnt expect for the price paid for the villa and the otherwise lovely place we stayed in for 10 days. However, it didnt spoil our trip as we were too busy having fun and did enjoy returning to the villa each night for relaxation.

This Villa is one that certainly lives up to its name. The week that we spent at this villa was one of the best weeks of our lives. It offered peace and tranquillity, beautiful surroundings and breath taking views, provided us with everything we needed, nothing was missed out. superb service and help from the manager MEHMET, who helped us everyday with bookings activities and travelling to ensure we had an excellent time. The villa has been made with love and provides every holiday essential you can think of. You can save suitcase space as the villa comes equipt with plenty of sun lotion of all factors, celotape, swim gear, cooking condiments, hairdryer, shampoo, toothbrushes etc. everything you need has been thought of and provided for to ensure you are looked after and this made our holiday completely stress free and relaxing. It is situated in a very quiet area, you will not get bothered with traffic noise or noisy neighbours. You have gorgeous mountain views from the garden and was the perfect place to escape the stressful life of London and soak up the sun whilst relaxing in peace and having quality time with family. We couldnt have enjoyed our stay at villa joy more then we did and would definitely recommend this villa to anyone wanting a beautiful and peaceful place to stay and relax with the option of having fun too. There are plenty of things to do in nearby towns- camel riding, beautiful outside restaurants, boat trips, turtle beach, jeep safari, river rafting, quad biking, markets, etc. The only downside was our stay was not long enough, we didnt want to leave!!! Thank you Steve and Elaine for your perfect villa. We had a fantastic holiday and hope to revisit soon!

this house was so beautiful and everything one could possibly need for a holiday was provided even down to hair straighteners and beach / pool towels. The house is in a great area with easy travel to lots of beaches and towns, mud baths, Turkish bath, diving, the gorge etc., and with the house manager (Mehmet) anything can be arranged easily 24/7.
All dealings with the owners were easy and they do everything they can to make your stay as pleasant as possible.
Dalaman itself has many shops, cafes and restaurants, most of which will pick up and dro p off at the villa if you need them to. In Dalaman we would recommend Cinar restaurant, Silver Café Bar (at the far end just behind the Front Street) and the café in the park at the far end of Dalaman. We also went twice to the Treehouse restaurant which is in beautiful surroundings with great food.
The service for the house is second to none and the Turkish people are brilliant, nothing is too much trouble.
We would definitely recommend this property and this area of Turkey to all our friends and family.
Hopefully we will be able to come back and stay at this property again. Thanks for a letting us use your home.

We had an excellent two week holiday in this beautiful, spacious and well equiped villa - not having to bring beach towels what a relief - helps with the miserly baggage allowance!
The villa has an ideal pool that has plenty of natural shading which ensured a pleasant temperature even in the heat of the midday sun. The terrace provides a great place for dining and the bar-be-que is a nice touch.
The managment staff were exceptionally helpful but not intrusive.
We thought the location of the villa was ideal for touring the various towns and beaches along this stretch of coast line, however we were just as content to laze around the pool listening to the occasional sounds of a farm animal or two!

Villa Joy was a real home from home for our weeks stay. It had every single modern convenience we could think, but in a quiet Turkish town where everyone was very friendly. We loved the pool and the G&Ts in the evening on the terrace using limes picked from one of the 2 trees. We also enjoyed hearing the sound of the odd cow and chicken over the wall, which made you feel miles away from some of the busy resorts along the coast although in fact Fethiye was less than an hours drive.
The beach at Sarigerme was ok if you wanted a resort feel, but we enjoyed Sarsala and Sigla for far quiter experiences. Just be careful with Sarsala as most of the journey is on unmade roads.
You have to visit Akkaya Gardens Restaurant for a meal in a tree!
Villa Joy was a place of sheer bliss and tranquility for my husband and I, a little taste of paradise! We went to celebrate our anniversary coupled with Eid and found a gem never to be forgotten.
As first time renters abroad we were absolutely delighted with where we had come to stay. From the start the booking process was easy and the link with the owners made it a reassuring process, where all our questions were answered.
The villa itself was amazing, I still miss being there. It was homely, extremely peaceful and full of all the necessary home comforts (utility room- wow!). The swimming pool was fantastic, not deep just right, within a lovely private, walled garden. Ideal for both couples and familes with young children.
Mehmet the manager was a great help and had lovely manners and consideration for us all the time. Ramzan would come every morning and clean the pool. Both were non-intrusive and always most willing to help.
The surrounding villas were at a distance and privacy was still maintained. The neighbours were friendly, when seen, which added to the atmosphere. Most touchingly the local residents were extremely warm and welcoming, whereby we would often be given gifts of different fruits, freshly picked off their trees, as we walked back from the centre of Dalaman.
We managed to enjoy our stay with getting out and about on foot, felt great walking about in the sun. The town centre was about 20-25 minutes walk away, with the large supermarket being on route (10-15 minutes). The high street of Dalaman has many shops and a few eating places (little cafes) jotted around. Dalaman market is every Thursday, fantastic things to buy and a really nice atmosphere. A must is trying the cheese, mince or veg like pancakes- delicious!
On the far end of the high street was the bus station and tourist guide, offering many places to visits, which are 40 minutes to an hours drive away by bus/coach.
Also opposite the bus station was a beautiful mosque, amazing calligraphy inside and most welcoming of everyone.
If you wished to eat out there are many restaurants which offer a pick-up and dro p-off service. Some of the best ones were Botanik, Cinar and Akkaya Gardens.
Overall the villa and surrounding area is perfect for those wanting a taste of ease and relaxation. I would highly recommend this villa to all and cant wait to return soon. Thankyou Stephen and Elaine.
We loved Villa Joy, ideally located. Villa spacious and clean, lovely outside seating area and great pool, ideal for the kids. Nice and private too. Good thing with restaurants they picked you up and took you for the meal and dro pped you back at no cost. would definitely go again. Serigerme beach nearby - great there too.
We had a fantastic 2 weeks at Villa Joy,we couldnt of wanted more.Everything ,right down to adapters, were provided.
Our transfer to & from the villa was sorted,even though we were delayed by over an hour & car hire was provided by Mehmet at a very good rate.
The villa is within an hours drive from so many places we didnt get to see them all, but at the same time we had the luxury of peace & quiet sat in the garden by the pool when we wanted to relax.
The market in town is very good & the supermarket has a good selec tion of things.There are also some very good restaurants near by who will pick you up & bring you home free of charge.
An absolutely lovely place to enjoy Turkey.
Villa Joy is very well equipped, private and tranquil. Steve and Elaine have thought of every thing possible to make it home from home. You can even pick fresh lemons for your G&T.
Excellent appliances, large supermarket ten minutes flat walk, nearest restaurant (Cinar) ten minute walk . Dalaman Central 20 minutes walk from villa where there are taxis, dolmus and coaches (Fethiye every 30 minutes cost 8TL per person air conditioned coach, approx one hour travelling). Would appeal to anyone wanting the real Turkey. Loved it.
We are a Turkish/English family who come to Dalaman every year to see family. We have stayed in many villas in the Dalaman area and Villa Joy is among the best. This extremely spacious villa is very conveniently located for Dalaman town and excellently equipped-no need to bring beach towels, plug adaptors, iron or hairdryer. It has a great stock of cds and dvds for the hottest times of the day. The pool area is lovely and the large covered terrace is great for eating or just playing one of the many games also provided.
The management is of a high standard and includes a laundry service and mid period cleaning if you require it. The laundry room means you can bring all your clothes home clean!
There were six of us staying in the villa and we didnt get in each others way at all. There is even a sofa bed to sleep another two should you require it and a wooden screen for privacy. The sitting room is large enough that even this wouldnt cramp your style.
I would highly recommend Villa Joy to any family visiting this area.
We spent a very relaxing week in Villa Joy. It is a delightful villa, very well equiped indeed with everything you could possibly need, and more - from cook books to a dictionary, pegs and a washing line etc etc, although perhaps I didnt need the bathroom scales! Memhet, who looks after the property, was very helpful: he picked us up, arranged a hire car, and popped round during the week to see if all was OK.
A car is nice to have to visit some of the unspolit beaches nearby, but one could easily stay put by the pool. All in all - a high quality, very well equiped and maintained villa.
My husband and I recently returned from a week at Villa Joy. I cannot disclose the reason we needed a trnaquil location, but lets just say we found a little piece of Paradise. Both of us are well travelled, stayed in Hostels, huts on the beach and 5 star in Beverley Hills LA so have insight into ALL standards of accommodation. This Villa is spacious and beautifully decorated, NOTHING has been forgotten! There is a torch, scissors, pegs and even towels. The Laundry room (which i personally loved!) was well equipped, an ironing board, washing machine, spare bedding..kitchen well equipped, again nothing forgotten. The Pool area is well served with loungers, Parasols and is a lovely area to relax, IF of course you can drag yourself away from the lovely terrace! The Main bedroom has a beatiful large En Suite, with a corner Jacuzzi bath, but the shower is equally as nice, all high quality fitments.
The Owners are really helpful and extremely kind. t
The holiday was easily booked. We were met at the Airport (paid for transfers), Mehmet, (the gentleman who manages the Villa) was waiting for us on arrival at the Villa, and was so kind and helpful yet non intrusive, (can text any queries and will get back to you as soon as it is possible). Trevor, the pool man, from Hull, was also a pleasure. There is only one Villa next to Villa Joy, the Owners live there and are just lovely...helpful and naturally full of local information but due to the lay out of the Villa, you wouldnt know there was a Villa next to you! The view to the rear is unspoilt...it really is bliss! a 20 minute walk brings you into the town which is really unspolit...The Market on a Thursday was fantastic, the fresh fruit and vegetables abound.. A very friendly area, not touristy at all. My husband and i didnt sightsee but plan to return again and perhaps, drag ourselves away from the Villa to see some of the beauty hotspots... no promises though! When they tell you Dalaman Airport is the most expensive in the world...it is! £4 almost for a coffee!! Prepare yourself!
Hope this is of some help for those who want a Villa of Quality, in a quiet location that delivers all that it says....look no further. I hope that all that stay enjoy, and take care of this beautiful residence as if it were their own. Thank you to Steve and Elaine...one of the best weeks ever!!
