I was a bit tearful when we arrived, tired and in need of a rest, at this beautiful villa in Kayakoy, hard to believe we could stay in such a lovely, private property, with fabulous views for 10 days. Arife and Oliver were the perfect hosts, available if needed, but not intrusive. We had a lovely, very welcome, first meal brought to us by Arife, and Oliver was on hand to help when a thunderstorm knocked out the electricity in the village. They were also incredibly kind in sorting out a new spare tyre for us after we got a puncture. The villa was immaculately clean and well equipped. It's a little tricky to find initially, just have to believe Arife's instructions and hold your nerve through the narrow streets of the village. We enjoyed the village, it's restaurants and bakery, all walking distance. We walked through the ghost town and over the hill to Coldwater Bay a couple of times which was beautiful, drove out to Patara to take in some history, enjoyed the marina in Fethiye, and Gemiler beach was small but friendly. We didn't do too much really as we were happy to relax in the villa and by the pool, why would you need to go anywhere else?
Arrived early Saturday afternoon. What a villa. The scent of pine was the first sensation, surrounded by a stunning wall and gated entrance. Grounds are perfect. Inside its huge. Lovely bedrooms, vsry comfy and plenty of storage. En suites are great. Marble floors throughout. Will help to keep it cooler in extreme heat but also easy to keep clean. Kitchen/dining area is huge. Plenty of fridges, dishwasher, beautiful marble tops. This leads to the main outside area, stunning. Plenty of room, sun loungers, the pool is amazing with a shallower one for infants.
The area is gorgeous, 10 mins to the beach where there are numerous restaurants and bars. 5 mins is a small supermarket/ cafe. Locals use it and anything you want the lady can get. Try her pancakes, superb. 20 mins to Fethiye, 40 to Olu Deniz. Taxis are reasonable, and dolmus is just down the road. Hotel with water slides 5 mins walk. One place you must try is the fish market in Fethiye, many types of fish , cooked to order or a set menu. Locals eat here, superb. Really enjoyed it and highly recommend here.
