THE LEMON HOUSE - A SECLUDED 3 BEDROOM VILLA WITH PRIVATE POOL.

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Dalyan - The Lemon House

Surrounded by lemon groves, 10 mins from Dalyan & 20 mins from Turtle Beach.

This is a charming 3 bedroom villa in rural surroundings. The villa has a great deal of character with an ensuite bedroom upstairs accessed by an outside staircase with its own sunbathing terrace. Downstairs there are two more bedrooms and another bathroom and a living room which runs out to the pool and the large terrace through the French windows.

The villa has been recently refurbished. We've included every kind of convenience for a relaxed stay - a private pool surrounded by lemon orchards, daily maid, air conditioning in every room, beach towels, well equiped kitchen, T.V. DVD, washing machine, barbeque and open fire. We welcome pets - actually you might find chickens 'free ranging' in the orchard uninvited! If they lay eggs there you can eat them! We've also got a resident owl and storks come to visit frequently (beware honeymooners!)

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • pets considered
  • not suitable for elderly or infirm
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Guestbook comments from the owner

My sister and I, and our husbands and 5 children stayed at this house for 10 days. We had a wonderful time. The kids, aged between 2 years old and 11, found something for each of them - toys, pool, garden, tv (well sometimes you just need it!). We adults enjoyed the restaurants in Gocek, the amazing 12 island boat trip and barbequing in the garden, watching shooting stars late into the night. A superb holiday in a wonderful spot - thoroughly recommend this place.

Gorgeous Pool!

  • 5 out of 5
The Lemon House is every bit as lovely as the photos and description lead you to expect. Even our earlier than anticipated arrival didn't worry Serpil who turned up with fresh bread, wine and water to greet us.

We'd spent 10 busy days with friends in Kalkan before coming here, so thoroughly enjoyed just being on our own with the pool, the 15 chickens (variously named Kiev, Marengo, Coronation, Korma and so on) and the citrus grove. We barely used the interior of the house during the day, apart from some simple food preparation in the little kitchen. How useful to have tea, coffee, milk, sugar, oil, herbs & spices on hand! Apart from 24 hours without hot water, everything worked fine, including the wi-fi which let us keep an eye on the business back home.

Fatma cooked a delicious meal for us one evening, adding tasty little extras to our choices. LeyLey was slighty disappointing on our first evening; the food was average and the place was packed as they were having a Turkish Dancing evening, complete with a svelte belly dancer gyrating with bulky white tourists. Dalyan's White Lotus was pleasant as was the small Crab & Fish Restaurant in one of the back streets, and The Hidden Garden for our last lunch was excellent.

We walked to Caunos one morning, after getting rowed across the river by a large lady whose cafe-owning sister greeted us on the other side and directed us to the now paved road to the must see site. We visited the Saturday market in what's usually Dalyan's main car park, husband Gwyn got a shave which he highly recommends, and then headed off to Itzuzu Beach. Finally we had a lovely drive round Köycegiz lake to the Sultaniye mud baths and thermal springs - wonderfully deserted as the first boats from Dalyan had yet to arrive. Köycegiz is a lovely holiday resort town for Turks at the head of the lake, very beautiful and peaceful.

The Lemon House is a great base from which to explore the area, and a charming spot to come back to at the end of a hot, dusty day. Our thanks to Alison, Serpil and Fatma for your hospitality.

Wonderful for family holiday

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at The Lemon House in May 2014 with our 3 little girls (5,3 and 1). It was perfect for us. The girls loved the clean, sparkling pool, running around (and chasing the chickens) in the orange/lemon grove surrounding the house, and having lots of lovely meals on the patio. We drove to the beach at Itzuzu which was very quiet and lovely for swimming, and also walked up to the rock tombs and Kaunos which they loved. We did take a boat trip from Dalyan to the beach on our last day and although the boat trip is pretty, I would not recommend the beach there as it is full of people, day trips etc. Overall a wonderful holiday and house which I have recommended to all my friends already.

Quirky cottage in secluded orchard setting.

  • 5 out of 5
The Lemon House is a secluded cottage situated within a beautiful orchard. At the time of our stay (early July) the fruit wasn't quite ripe enough to eat but we did manage to find sufficient lemons and limes for our gin and tonics each evening and it was fun being able to pick them fresh from the trees.

The house is small and simple but really lovely and we found it just big enough for the five of us. However, we tended to spend most of our time outside which has ample space and is so peaceful and idyllic. Surprisingly we didn't seem to be bothered by mozzies either, although we didn't take any risks and sprayed on the repellant each night.

The maid, Fatima, kept the pool clean daily and cooked us a delicious authentic Turkish meal one night - definitely recommended.

The owners were very helpful and gave us some sound advice on various aspects of our holiday to help us get the most out of it.

We went into Dalyan a few times for shopping and restaurants. This is a really friendly, buzzing town with a super atmosphere. If you don't have a car, there are plenty of taxi services or restaurant owners willing to pick you up and drop you back after your meal.

A car is definitely recommended, however, if you want to properly see this part of Turkey. We hired a car for the whole ten days and drove all over the place. We found everyone to be very friendly and helpful wherever we went and there was plenty to do and see and some truly memorable experiences to be had. Our absolute highlight was the private boat trip arranged by one of the owners, Serpil, with her friend Captain Sedat and his son. They gave us the most wonderful time and could not have been more hospitable.

We definitely plan to return to this delightful part of Turkey and to this lovely, quirky little house.

Gorgeous, peaceful villa

  • 5 out of 5
This property is exactly as it looks on the website. It is very charming indeed. The outdoor areas were particularly attractive and we spent most of our week eating outdoors, sitting around the pool, and picking oranges to make juice. It was totally idyllic. The end of the garden is quite rough - full of orange and lemon trees, and only overlooked by one house. The pool has a very efficient cleaning system - Fatma, the cleaning lady comes every day and there is a hose and pump system used , so there are never dead bugs floating around in it, which we usually find in pools. The pool isn't fenced in any way, and is quite deep, so care must be taken with children. There was always shade to be found if needed, and the views from the roof terrace were lovely.
It is our second time to Dalyan and won't be our last. We liked to be out of the resort a few km, and felt immersed in nature (cats, dogs, frogs and chickens to name a few of the regulars!) but Dalyan is a super place, especially for families with kids. There is a very friendly feel about it and such a huge choice of restaurants and shops that you can easily eat somewhere different every meal, every day (although you always find your favourites! ) It's really cheap too . The beach is stunning and the countryside is beautiful. Driving in Turkey is not for the faint hearted, and later in the year, the bugs are a nuisance, but in April we weren't bothered at all. It's an amazing place and a smashing little villa.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the Lemon House. Your description of the orange juice made me quite envious as the clouds rolled over me in the UK!
Hope to see you again one day soon.

Idyllic setting for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 out of 5
The Lemon House, some 5 km from Dalyan, is situated in a small Turkish village amongst citrus and pomegranate orchards. A tranquil environment conducive to a relaxing holiday. The house is well maintained, having a comfortable living room, a small, but well equipped kitchen, 2 spacious bedrooms and a shower room on the ground floor. Upstairs there is another spacious bedroom and a shower room. This section is self-contained and accessed by an outside staircase. There were 2 couples in our group and this layout worked well for us. Around the beautiful swimming pool is a patio with sun beds, table and chairs and parasols. On many occasions we simply wanted to sit on the patio and watch the local chickens approaching through the citrus orchard to drink from the swimming pool.
The pool and house are serviced daily by Fatma, a lady who lives in the village.She does an excellent job, is dependable and very friendly, although her English is very limited. She is an excellent cook and will prepare meals from a menu with 24hrs notice.
We needed a rental car to get around with ease, although the local bus service into Dalyan is very good. The car company recommended by the owners was excellent and inexpensive. There are many interesting, historic and picturesque places to visit within easy driving distance, although the road surfaces can be very rough and potholed (very exciting driving).
The nearest restaurant is a 10min walk away (2 mins in the car). The Ley Ley restaurant is also a stork sanctuary. Wonderful food served in lovely surroundings with Turkish entertainment on 2 nights per week. The pitta bread cooked fresh in a wood burning oven is amazing. Dalyan is full of restaurants - too many to choose from. However, there are 2 we would highly recommend - The Hidden Garden and the Four Seasons both served us amazing food. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. One restaurant to avoid is Saki where we paid high prices for poor quality cold food. For a lunch or afternoon tea experience we recommend The Dalyan Iz art gallery and garden cafe. The cakes are to die for!
We will have fond memories of our stay in The Lemon House for a long time to come. We would love to return one day. Perhaps the memory of picking a ripe pomegranate from the tree, squeezing out the juice and sipping it while lazing on a sun lounger next to the pool will be the incentive to take us back sooner than later.

Lemon House June 2012

  • 5 out of 5
We had a lovely stay in the Lemon House with our 18 month old son. The villa is clean and welcoming and the pool is fantastic and was kept clean every day by Fatima. The villa feels very secluded and is set in beautiful surroundings. We had fresh orange juice every morning from oranges picked in the garden and lemonade in the afternoons. This was our first trip to Turkey and I imagine we will return. We went several times to a local beach which is beautiful and about 20 - 30 mins away by car via a lovely drive round lagoons and through hills. There are also plenty of ruins and other lovely beaches and towns all within an hour or so's drive. A very pleasant and relaxing experience from start to finish.

The property is outside Dalyan in a little village called Kemaliye - right by the Stork sanctuary restaurant. It is 20 minutes to Iztuzu Beach - home of the famous Loggerhead Turtles. A wonderfully remote and secluded place and yet only a 5 minute drive to the shops and restaurants. The short transfer from Dalaman airport takes less than 30 minutes so you can be drinking Gin and Tonic by the pool while the rest of the crowds are still on the road to Marmaris or Fethiye. If you want tranquility and village life then this is the most wonderful spot and the most quaint house.
