Overview

Aquarius villas, are set in beautifully landscaped grounds on a gentle slope, between Turkey’s Mediterranean coast and the stunning Taurus mountains, 700m from the beach, 7km from the historic town of Side and 30 km from Turkey`s golf region of Belek, and with easy access from Antalya airport, which is served by flights from most major UK airports.

Number 53 is a luxury, fully furnished 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom villa, with a large private garden and private parking. Due to strict planning regulations, building has been limited to 10% of the complex area giving an open feel to the complex with only 54 semi-detached villas. It is a secure complex featuring communal pool, fully equipped gymnasium, sauna, tennis court and children’s play area. The emphasis at Aquarius is on peace and tranquility with each of the villas set far enough apart to ensure privacy and comfort, yet close enough to be neighbourly.

The villa is on 3 floors. The ground floor offers a fitted well equipped kitchen with dishwasher, microwave and washing machine, an open planned air-conditioned living/dinning room with adjoining patio offering a table and seating for 6 and French doors leading to the garden.

The first floor has 2 bedrooms both with twin beds, fitted wardrobes and air-conditioning. The 2nd bedroom (twin beds can be put together to make a King) also has a en-suite bathroom with shower and access to a small balcony (ideal for drying your laundry) from the bathroom and a larger terrace directly from the bedroom with a table and chairs.

The top floor is the Master suite with a large bathroom with Jacuzzi bath and hand-held shower, king bed, fitted wardrobe, air-conditioning and a private sun terrace with loungers.

Aquarius Villas are situated 700m from the sandy beaches of Çolakli, a resort that is a pleasant holiday destination and an up-market residential district hosting several new 5-star hotel complexes, bars, restaurants, shops and a health spa.

Facilities nearby
Beaches: The nearest beach is about 700m away. There is also a free shuttle bus operated by a local beach restaurant/bar. They will come and get you and let you use their sunbeds for free (in the hope that they will sell you lunch!).

Car Hire: We can organise a hire car for you to be delivered to the airport or to the villa if you get a transfer (recommended). Price on request.

Dolmus: The Dolmus taxis are the cheapest ways to travel. These zippy mini-buses run along specified routes (the final destination is printed on a board in the front window). In towns, there tend to be designated stops however, they can usually be flagged down anywhere along the route. Approx. cost 3YTL (just over £1!) per person, per journey.

Taxis: In most cases these are metered however, it is still best to negotiate a rate or be given a guide price before starting your journey. Example cost : Side town to Manavgat town approx. £13-£15.

Spa Treatments: A full range of spa treatments can be found at the Keyf Wellness Centre just a 3 minute drive away. Here you will be able to book a Turkish bath, facial treatments or full body massages. There is also an indoor and outdoor pool (only filled from approx. 20 April to 20 November), jacuzzi, sauna, steam and snow room, drinks and snack bar.

Excursions: There are numerous shops offering excursions. They all offer very similar products at very similar prices so just take your pick. We have left details of those we have found most helpful and reliable in the villa.

Water sports: Turkish coastal resorts have an excellent range of water sports including banana riding, paragliding, parascending, surfboarding, waterskiing, windsurfing and jet skiing. Non-motorized water-sports such as kayaks, pedalos and snorkeling equipment are also available. Waterparks are springing up all over the place. There is a park about 5 minutes walk from the villa connected to one of the local hotels that can be used by non-residents at a charge of approximately 10€ per person for 2-3 hours. Antalya has a very large waterpark called Aqualand with approx. 30 water-slides, swimming pools with wave machines, cafes, bars, lockers and sun-loungers etc. This can be visited as a day excursion from one of the aforementioned excursion operators if you do not have a hire car.

Sport on TV: There are many bars that show football and rugby games. Some will also provide a complimentary pick-up/drop-off service (particularly in the winter months) so you can leave the car at home and celebrate! Again, we have left details of a few good bars in the villa.

Stayed Saturday 11 August 2007
THE HOUSE WAS SPACIOUS, CLEAN AND WELL EQUIPED. THE DECOR WAS TASTEFUL AND THE SURROUNDING GARDENS WERE BEAUTIFULLY PLANTED. THE POOL WAS WONDERFUL, ALTHOUGH IN HIGH SEASON I WONDER IF IT WOULD NOT BE BIG ENOUGH FOR EVERYONE. IT MIGHT BE WORTH THINKING ABOUT BUILDING ANOTHER ONE SOON. JONAIRRE (SP?) WHO WORKED AT THE CLUB HOUSE WAS A WONDERFUL PERSON WHOM OUR WHOLE FAMILY GOT ON WELL WITH. HE MADE THE HOLIDAY EXTRA SPECIAL. WE COMMEND HIM TO THE COMPANY.
Very well equipped modern property situated in a lovely complex. Locals friendly and helpful without exception. Pool was quiet at this time of year - great to have it to ourselves particularly with sixteen month old having her first experience in the water. Wall-to-wall sunshine and warmth throughout the week made it a great place to come in late September when the weather at home had turned autumnal. Recommend hiring a car to get about (Side, Manavgat, Belek, etc) unless confident in using Dolmus or willing to pay for taxis.
