Apartment overview - owner's description

New to the market for the 2013 holiday season , our beautiful 2 bedroomed apartment "Helena" , is furnished to a high standard and has everything necessary for your luxury self catering holiday.

Only a 25 minute transfer from Dalaman airport 'Apartment Helena' is situated in the ever popular residential area of Gulpinar and is only a 4 minute stroll into town. Purchased by us in November 2012 and furnished to high specification our luxury apartment is fully equipped with all that is necessary for a memorable self catering holiday. Set in well tended private gardens the pool is shared with only three other apartments. The Gulpinar area is peaceful, yet its close proximity to town and its many bars and restaurants make it popular with visitors.
Dalyan is a small town on the Dalyan River. it is a designated conservation area, and no high- rise buildings are allowed, it is for this reason that the town has a village like feel and caters for the more discerning visitor.
Due to its position on the water front, dining out at one of the many restaurants and bars is a delight. After dark the illuminated Lycian rock tombs make a stunning backdrop.
Iztuzu Beach is reached by either river taxi or minibus, which run regularly throughout the season, May to October.
There is much for the visitor to do including many and varied boat and bus trips. Those with an interest in nature or walking will find much to occupy them and the area boasts a diverse selection of wildlife, and historic sites.
We have listened to customer feedback from 2013 and have now installed a combination safe, table and chairs in the kitchen area and some British standard electric sockets for ease of charging mobile phones,. tablets etc: New for 2014, WiFi and satellite TV. Safety features include door alarms and auto back up lighting incase of power failure.
Should anyone be interested in our other property Apartment Viacora also advertised on this site ( ref. number 113395) Please send me an enquiry and I will check availability.

Couple from Aberdeen, United Kingdom May 2016

Me and my wife have just spent three weeks in the Helena Apartment in Dalyan.

This was our tenth holiday in Turkey and second time in Dalyan and I must say that this apartment was as good if not better than any of the accommodations we have stayed in before in that country.

Elizabeth the owner was in contact with us at all times and arranged our transport to and from the airport with no problems.

Me and my wife would recommend this apartment 100% .

One word sums up the apartment EXCELLENT.

Thanks to you both for taking the time to review our apartment. It is always good to receive feedback, especially when it is positive. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Apartment Helena, we look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Kind regards Liz 🌞

Couple from Llanymynech, United Kingdom Sep 2015

We are a married couple in our late fifties who have been to Turkey many times and we will hopefully keep returning to the lovely country for many years to come. We have never been to the same place twice because we love to try different places, but Dalyan is an absolute delight and a must for at lease one more visit. If we do return and I am sure that we will, what better place to stay than in Liz and David's fabulous apartment. For those who don't know the Turkisk coast between Kas and Dalyan, there are some beautiful little villages/towns, but the accommodation can quite often be up a hill, which can be quite challenging in the high Turkish temperature. Rest assured that this apartment is on the flat in the perfect location for a leisurely 5 minute stroll to the main square, the restaurants, bars and waterfront and at night you can sit on the apartment's peaceful balcony without hearing a sound. The apartment is one of the best that we have stayed in and the gardens and pool were so well kept. Despite the fact that this was a late summer holiday (September 2015) the water in the pool what beautifully warm, but the 30% - 40% air temperature may account for that. We were lucky enough to meet Liz and David (thanks for the Gin and Tonics) who were themselves on holiday staying at their other apartment which is also a holiday rental and equally as nice as the one we stayed in (so you have 2 chances of booking a great apartment in the best location for your stay in Dalyan). One potential worry about booking an apartment abroad is communicating with the owner, but not on this occasion, Liz is so on top of the communication and makes your feel like an old friends from the minute you make your first inquiry. So to summarize, this apartment is a credit to the owners and if you are lucky enough to book your next holiday in Dalyan and stay in this apartment, you will not be disappointed. Hope to see you again, regards Patrick and Ceri.

Hi Patrick & Ceri. Thanks for taking the time to review Apartment Helena. It is heartening to read your kind words and to know that the work involved in providing accommodation and service that provides a memorable experience for our guests is all worthwhile.
We really enjoyed meeting you both. If you do decide to stay again, please remind me to leave 2 books for you to use during your stay. One contains details of walks along the Lycian Way, the other outlines interesting local walks in and around Dalyan. Kind Regards Liz

Couple from Stanstead Abbotts, United Kingdom Sep 2014

We stayed at the Villa Helena last year in September (apologies for the late review)! The apartment was stunning - close to Dalyan town but far enough out to be quiet - and had everything we needed for our holiday. The gardens are immaculate and full of fruit trees. The owners were very helpful and arranged transfers for us from Dalaman Airport to the apartment. We would not hesitate to recommend the villa to friends and family.

Couple from Crook, United Kingdom Aug 2014

Highly recommended accommodation and great communication from the owner. We have been going to Dalyan for many years and this is by far the best apartment we have stayed in and the peaceful location was perfect with a nice leisurely stroll into town or the nearby supermarkets.
The apartment had good quality fittings etc and everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay including fabulous air conditioning in all rooms. We enjoyed many relaxing days by the pool in the well kept gardens and there were ample comfortable sunbeds with parasols.
We are already thinking about our next visit back to the glorious Dalyan and would not hesitate to book Apartment Helena again as it proved to be great value for money.

Thanks again for making our holiday so enjoyable.

Family from Kuwait, Kuwait Aug 2013

My family and i had a very good time , it was close to every thing . Personsly i like to thank the owner for her excellent comm. befor and after arrival .

Family from Corby, United Kingdom Aug 2013

We stayed at the Helena Apartment from the 6th until the 20th of August. We are four adults. The apartment was spotless and just as described in the blurb-the location is excellent. Near enough to the town to be an easy walk, yet far away enough to be beautifully quiet. We didnt even have any road noise.
The property is built to good standard,clean and with excellent Air Conditioning in each of the rooms. There are proper British sockets in each of the bedrooms for recharging all the gadgets we seem to need these days.
The shower is first class with plentiful supplies of VERY hot water.
We used the cooking facilties a few times. All of the utensils cutlery crockery and so on was perfectly functional.
The water cooler is in our view an act of genius-we had the water refills delivered by one of the local shops. The lad from the shop even drove me on his scooter to locate where we were staying on the first trip. (This was entirely due to my own spectacular incompetence in remembering our address.) This really made life a lot easier in terms of readily available, plentiful and cold drinking water.
The furniture was all to a perfectly sound standard, and perfectly proportioned for a holiday apartment.If we were to make any criticism it would be a lack of wifi-but hey it probably wasnt a bad thing especially as free wifi is available everywhere in town.
We had the shared pool to ourselves most of the time. It is clean and well looked after, as is the garden.
This place struck us as being owned by someone who cared, and wasnt in it just to make a fast buck.
Ive already recommended it to a pal of mine.
it really made for an excellent holiday

Thank You for taking the time to review our apartment. We are happy that your time there was enjoyable and everything was to your satisfaction. Your positive feedback is really appreciated.In answer to your comment re- WiFi, unfortunately we are unable to provide this at the moment as to obtain a connection you are required to have a residency permit, which because we do not live there we do not have. Hopefully though we will be applying for this in the near future and we will then be able to provide this. As you so rightly say WiFi is provided free of charge at most of the local bars and restaurants. If however a customer wishes to access WiFi in the apartment it is possible to hire a dongle for a charge, should anyone want do do this I am happy to make enquiries regarding this for them.Our other apartment 'Viacora' which is situated in the same area does have WiFi and this property can be viewed on The Villarenters site.
