We feel that the local transport is more than adequate to get around the area and have not had to hire a car, though some guests choose to do this to explore the area more thoroughly. ( there is parking at the Villa ) The local dolmus are easily accessible and are cheap to use and run all day until 01.00hrs. We have negotiated preferential terms for guests at the Villa with a taxi service who will pick up from the Villa within 10 minutes of your call with fixed prices to the usual destinations agreed. Taxi fares usually double after midnight and again this is waived for our guests. For 5 or 6 passengers it is actually cheaper to use the taxi service rather than the dolmus bus service.
It is also possible to effectively have use of a taxi & driver all day for tourist trips etc. Depending on the distances involved this can be from around £40 per day. Full details of all trips, recommended restaurants and previous guest feedback and ideas are held at the Villa for your assistance.
There is no need for for any injections or vaccinations to visit this area of Turkey. In the event of any medical emergency there is 24 hour medical assistance in Hisaronu and modern private hospital facilities in Fethiye for peace of mind.
Araxa Villas is a small complex of detached Villas set in a tranquil and secluded location within pine forests nestling at the foot of the mountains. It is ideal for those looking for a quiet location.
The complex has 24 hour security for your peace of mind. There is also a dedicated maintenance team on site responsible for the upkeep of your own pool and private gardens which are attended to every day during your stay. Should there be any problems at all with the Villa there is always a friendly face on hand to help. The Villa management work together with the team and are available 24 hours per day should any emergency arise.
The local shop, about 5 minutes walk away, offer a 24 hour delivery service for your convenience. Either choose your supplies at the shop or there is a full list at the Villa to ring through your order which is with you in minutes - nearly as good as Tesco direct!
Araxa 9 is within easy reach of the bustling town of HISARONU which is within 10 minutes ‘dolmus’ or taxi ride and offers a full range of bars, restaurants, shops & now 2 supermarkets and clubs to meet all tastes. There is also a local market every Monday with a large choice of locally grown produce , clothes, shoes, leather goods and souvenirs.
Five minutes further on from Hisaronu is the famous OLU DENIZ beach and BLUE LAGOON voted one of the top 10 best beaches worldwide by the Rough Guide. The beach area has numerous bars and restaurants overlooking the bay. and is an ideal setting to watch the sunset whilst enjoying a evening drink on the beach. A range of water sports is available and boat trips from the beach. This is also one of the worlds top locations for paragliding which can be enjoyed as a spectator or join in on a tandem jump from 2000m to land on the beach - an unforgettable experience!
The town of FETHIYE, again some 10 minutes by ‘dolmus’ or taxi offers a full range of shops, supermarkets and restaurants. There is a large bazaar area, known as the Paspatur, and weekly market offering a range of local produce as well as a large range of clothing, leather goods etc. Fethiye also has a large marina with boat trips offered along the picturesque coastline.

The area offers a range of activities to suit all tastes – from tandem paragliding from Babadag mountain to land on Oludeniz beach, to historic Lycian sites around the area.
With teenage children ourselves we have found that there is ample to do and at very reasonable prices. These include :
PARAGLIDING & courses
BOAT TRIPS – for instance have your own boat and skipper for the day to go snorkeling and swimming away from the tourist areas with a full BBQ lunch provided on board at very reasonable prices.
SCUBA DIVING & courses
BANANA BOATS & RINGOS
SPEED BOAT HIRE
SKIING - A ski resort is being built within about 45 minutes drive from the Villa.
Overall the villa was just OK. Its in a nice location and everything is well maintained around the villa. Jackie the contact for the villa was very helpful, but we just feel that the villa lacks the little touches that I believe you expect in a villa. i.e. Although a welcome pack was provided at an extra cost which is acceptable, I would have liked the villa to have had the basics such as washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets/liquid, wash powder and enough toilet roll to last the week, and gas to power the oven/hob, which ran out after 5 mins of use, but was replaced very quickly free of charge - if this had happened late evening then we wouldnt have been able to continue cooking. I have to mention that the villa was very clean, but our week was spoilt by finding ants all around the kitchen worktops and floor on the first day, it wasnt just a couple it was hundreds. The 2nd day we found we had a donkey bee nest above the main bedroom balcony, so we couldnt sit around the pool for a few days while they tried to rectify the situation. This partly worked but even so even on the last day they were still a few lingering around and believe me, we know how dangerous these can be. Hopefully they will manage to get rid of them. This review is not intended to put you off, its just an honest view of our stay from a well travelled couple.In closing, i would say the villa is very clean in a convenient location but just lacks those finishing touches.

Great villa in quiet and beautiful location – just on the outskirts of Hisaronu and five minutes from Fethiye. Was very spacious for a family of five and had all facilities. Local rep was very helpful.. Highly recommended!

Have stayed at the Araxa complex previously in a different villa as it is a lovely location. Enjoyed this location once more and this villa has lovely gardens and swimming pool. However, internally the villa needs a little attension, The blinds in the dining area do not retract, the door to the double bedroom can not be closed, the shower attachment in the ensuite does not fit the wall bracket and the curtains do not fully close in the ensuite or twin bedroom. All three bedrooms could do with a dressing table and bin. The juicer is missing from the kitchen and we had to wait five days for two new sun loungers to appear after requested (only four in situ for a six person villa). Two sun longer cushions were also damaged and need replacing. There are a number of other minor faults that need attending to, none of which would take much effort or time to rectify. I would recommend the villa to a friend if the owners addressed the points stated, but would choose a previously rented one on the same complex.

araxa 9 is a lovely villa looking out on to the pine forest. It was well appointed and clean throughout. we really enjoyed our stay here, the pool was lovely and we loved relaxing in it every day. there was so much of interest to do in the area too. the villas are set away from the main area and as such are perfect for relaxation and yet you can pick up a dolmus bus at the end of the road, about 5 mins walk. i would recommend this villa to anyone. the only criticism... there was no info about the local area provided which would have helped us greatly at the beginning. the grounds staff were amazingly friendly and helpful.
This is the best holiday me and my family have had by far!!! We have 3 children aged 14,8 and 3 and they had a ball!! The villa is amazing, everything you need, well equipt and of a high standard. Although a little out of the way, its quiet and peaceful and only a short taxi ride from anywhere!! The welcome pack has the number for "Ian" the local taxi driver who really looked after us for the whole holiday, very fair prices and he was a fountain of all knowledge for trips, places to visit and restaurants to eat in...a lovely man!!
We will be bookin again for next year!!!

Perfect family holiday.
Property is perfect and to a very high standard.
Private pool and location make this perfect to relax whist also local enopugh to the town of Fethiye and the stunning beach of Oludeniz which are an absolute pleasure.
Plenty of local hotels and bars to provide entertainment within a short walk.
Amazing value for money locally.
One word ......Ideal!!
The accommodation was very spacious for a family of 5 set in a peaceful and tranquil location. The villas superb air conditioning was a welcome relief to the Turkish heat. The kitchen was well equipped. We enjoyed the large patio area and not to mention the splendid swimming pool. The local village store delivered direct to our door. To top it all Fethiye with its beach, restaurants and attractions just a short taxi ride away.
This was our best holiday for a family of 5 and we will all have very fond memories for years to come. We will definitely be returning.
"The Villa was gorgeous and the pool well used. We often sat on the terrace looking at the beautiful surrounding views. We found it very easy to get into all the local towns and the local store were very helpful. We are definitely intending at staying at Araxa 9 again. We would also recommend using the excellent taxi service which never let us down.""Lovely villa, quiet and relaxing. All mod cons. Ideal for all types/ages!"
