About Max Purnell

Hi, I am Max, thank you for taking the time to look at this villa and to consider it for your holiday.

We wanted to put some roots down in Dalyan the very first time we visited many years ago. We purchased an apartment in Dalyan in 2009 and then purchased Villa Menekse in 2012. We sold the apartment to two of our guests and know they are enjoying it as much as we did. As I love working with property I enjoyed working with a local Turkish interior designer to get the villa ready for our guests. Menekse, by the way, is pronounced Men-ek-she and translates as Violet.

Max Purnell purchased this villa in 2012

Why Max Purnell chose Lycian & Turquoise Coast

I spent a couple of years looking for the right villa for our requirement; it had to be close to town but as private as possible, the garden had to be south / south west facing. Well the list of requirements went on and on! Eventually we viewed Villa Menekse which was a shell at that stage and that was it - we had found what we were looking for. We changed the floor lay out, added walls, removed walls, added an additional bathroom and then finally got to fit it out which was the fun part. Having travelled and rented apartments and villas over many years we had a fair idea of what we thought our guests would like and what owners did or did not include or pay enough attention to. So we set out to make this the best, or at least one of the best, rentals available in Dalyan. Our Property Manager is great at helping us achieve our high expectations by maintaining the villa, the pools and the garden to a really high standard. This villa is within a 10 minute stroll of the river and town centre and in all the years we have stayed in Dalyan we have never hired a car as we find it more relaxing to walk or to use the river taxis and buses to get to the beach and local buses and sometimes taxis which are reasonably priced to go further afield.

What makes this villa unique

Well where do I start; the front terrace is just so quiet, we enjoy our first cup of tea each morning sitting on the terrace enjoying the peace and quiet. In May and June we love to watch the storks with their young. The farmer opposite is often spotted pottering about tending to his crop and his chickens can be seen scampering about in the field. The kosk is a delightful place to chill when the sun gets too much or you want to relax late in the evening. We frequently fire up the BBQ and relax under the stars enjoying the fresh local produce. The villa is just such a relaxing place to be that we often find we don't move that much during our stay. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was a first for all of us, staying in a villa and what an amazing villa it is! It certainly has all the amenities you could ask for and more. All in all our time at the villa Menekse was truly fantastic. Thank you so much.

Best holiday ever......

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a truly relaxing holiday in Dalyan. The family loved the two boats trips; one along the river and into the lake and the second one in to the sea. We all loved the jeep safari too which was great fun for all ages.

The villa owner, made the booking process so easy and she provided us with lots of really useful information before our holiday. The Wi-Fi in the villa was used by all especially the younger generation! Villa Menekse is beautiful, it had everything we needed for our holiday and it is a very well appointed villa and far more luxurious than the usual holiday rental!

We will be booking to stay at Villa Menekse again next year so watch out Dalyan, we'll see you in 2017!

Beautiful villa in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

Hired villa with friends. Really enjoyed Dalyan with all its restaurants and activities, market on a Saturday and numerous boat trips if required, all listed in the handbook in the villa.

Villa was great, very well equipped, very clean and spacious. Pool was great with childs pool which was great for keeping cool in the very hot weather. Outdoors had plenty of shady areas and sunbeds(with towelling on so no burning when you get on them!) and umbrellas were very good, plus a bbq for outdoor cooking. Transfers worked well. Good communication and the information booklet was very helpful. Good wi fi and electrical equipment. Plenty of books and games for use if needed. Air con in every room. We would definitely recommend this villa to friends and will hopefully be coming back next year.

Fantastic Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic 2nd visit to Dalyan, made even better by the very modern and well decorated villa that we stayed in. Villa Meneske has everything you will need to complete your holiday whether it be lounging in the sun by the pool all day or in front of the flat screen TV complete with DVD's and game consoles for the children. Villa Meneske is located about 7-10 min walk from Dalayan Town centre but has local stores for all your essentials. Inspired by previous reviews we tried the local restaurant Central Park which is just off the main road, here we found a varied menu that serves the staple Turkish dishes as well as a selection of Pasta's, Pizza's and great British delights like Egg and Chips! whatever you’re taste you will enjoy a trip to Central Park. The villa is set in a very peaceful location and has bicycles, pool inflatable’s and BBQ facilities all of which are maintained to very high standard. I cannot recommend this villa enough and am already looking to book for next year

Fabulous Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday at Villa Meneske.

The villa is in a very quiet and private location but only a five to ten minute walk to the town centre of Dalyan. Even closer there is a local store for essentials and fresh bread.

There is also a great restauraunt and bar about 4 minutes walk away Central Park the food is good and the prices are very reasonable.

The villa had everything we needed to make our stay very enjoyable. The 4 bedrooms are all very nice and very comfartable 2 are on suite.

The lounge area has a good size TV with satalite, There is also a DVD and CD player with lots of DVDs and CDs for our use along with the Wii player all making our stay more comfortable.

The kitchen had all the appliances we needed with a great range of cutlery and crockery for both inside and out.

Outside there is a big swimming pool with plenty of room for sunbathing. The loungers are very comfortable the pool area was cleaned daily by the maintenance man and was kept very clean indeed.The garden has all the furniture needed to have meals outside.With a built in barbaque. The verandah and the Turkish Kosk providing plenty of shade for the baby on those very hot days.

THe owners have even provided for babies and toddlers. Baby chair changing mat potty and our baby liked the baby seat on the bike the best.

There are 4 bikes that we used for shopping trips and to travel to places we wanted to go to close by.

We would definately recomend this villa anyone including our own friends and family and hope to return again very soon.
