Patrick Murphy purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Patrick Murphy chose Fethiye
Guests often wonder what Olu Deniz offers in comparison to other coastal resorts and the simple answer is one of the World’s best beaches and a much wider choice of things to do. It is a family-friendly holiday resort with several amazing beaches, paragliding & water sports, yachting, ancient ruins and has both authentic rural villages and tourist villages. Best of all, it is within easy reach, just under an hour from Dalaman International airport and 15 minutes from Fethiye, a bustling market town and marina which hosts many cultural events. Both The Blue Lagoon, (Turkey's most photographed beach) and The Lycian Way (voted among the Top 10 Walks of the World) are just five minutes away. There are a thousand things to do in Olu Deniz or nothing at all, either way Villa Babylon has it covered. I chose Villa Babylon for its location; a small mountainside community made up of villas and small Turkish farms, yet within a few minutes walk of a Beach Shuttle Bus stop. With mountains towering behind and super views to the front, all day sunshine and mature gardens, it is the perfect setting. I redesigned the house and interiors in a welcoming, modern style with cooling white backdrops and colourful fabrics, funky furniture mixed with antiques to create a unique, contemporary, Turkish environment. If space, style & luxurious marble finishes are what you are looking for, then this is the place for you. My aim is to provide the best villa experience in Olu Deniz.

Villa Babylon is stunning both inside and out. It really is a home from home with fab little touches that Fergal has added from his travels. Fergal’s attention to detail really does make you feel special. We were greeted by him with afternoon tea, nothing was too much trouble for him. The hamper went down well with the kids, lots of goodies for everyone. He even brought us fresh strawberries & mulberries from the market. Marion from I Cook 4 U provided a fabulous service delivering marinaded meats for the bbq, salad, new potatoes, burgers & buns. She made us a gorgeous strawberry pavlova for desert. All in all I can’t recommend Fergal and his beautiful Villa highly enough. 10/10 👌�🏻�
Villa Babylon and Fergal were as wonderful as the other reviewers have described. Can't praise both enough. Thank you for our best ever holiday.
Absolutely First Class. This Villa is outstanding sleeps 10 guests comfortably with an amazing owner
We stayed at Villa Babylon from 29th Sept until 13 Oct 2018. There were 7 of us and from the minute we arrived and were met by the owner Fergal we were amazed at the kindness and service he offers, you will never experience this anywhere else. The Villa is on 4 floors, spotlessly clean and well decorated and designed. Every room has been well thought through with luxury bathrooms and soft furnishings. There are so many extras its hard to list them all a mini bar, a fridge full of goodies in the cinema room, a fridge full in the kitchen, a hamper with goodies, toiletries, beach towels etc. Fergal is an amazing person you just want to put him under your wing. He visited the Villa everyday to make sure everything was ok and left little goodies like lemon drizzle cake and chocolate tart. There was a few issues whilst we were there out of Fergals control and he did his upmost to rectify the problems straight away. He suggested restaurants and recommended days out and even booked them for us if we asked. We didn't use the local bus as the taxi service was so good and so cheap 15 Lira (£2) into the village, we used a guy called Ali very reliable. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this villa but most of all a huge thank you to Fergal he must be the best owner ever and made our stay very memorable we were overwhelmed by his kindness and thoughfulness which included looking after 3 stray kittens that came into the garden lol !!!!!!
Best Villa we have ever stayed in, with the outside areas being just as lovely as the inside.
Six of us stopped at the Villa and from the moment we got there, (Fergal was there to great us and show us around the Villa) we loved it and felt right at home straight away. There was a lovely food hamper there for our arrival with included a lovely chocolate tart and the best lemon drizzle cake I have tasted, went down a treat with a cup of tea on arrival. Fergal was the best, he could not do enough for you and made sure you had everything you needed. He goes above and beyond and has a way of just making you feel right at home. There was lots of information around the Villa, about the local area, which was especially helpful if you had not been to the area before.
We had the pleasure of having the master bedroom, which was fabulous, but having said that all the rooms were good and had lovely comfortable beds in them.
The pool area was just so relaxing, with plenty of sun beds and towels and with another fridge on the pool level you did not have to venture far for refreshments, there was also the BBQ area to relax in, which was my favourite place to read.
We would give this Villa 10 out of 10 and would definitely stay there again, but not only is the Villa top class so is Fergal, he goes above and beyond to make sure you have the best holiday possible, we certainly did, and would not hesitate to return and recommend this villa to our family and friends.
Very good . Lovely villa . Loads to do in the area and the owner was really helpful with advice
The villa was lovely . It had plenty of space, which was necessary with 3 teenagers ! All the kids (4) had their own rooms and there was additional space to hang out in and do their individual things
The villa is in an ideal location to reach all the locations and activities - and there are plenty to choose from .
The owner was welcoming and helpful . He helped to organise trips for us and gave advice. Made everything much easier and we had our itinary sorted for the week on our first day, which was lovely
We all enjoyed it, even the difficult to please teenagers had a fab time
House of Dreams
The villa is absolutely stunning both inside and out. Fergal has poured a whole lot of love into this home. The layout is pretty perfect and room for everyone to have a chill out zone if needed. The pool and ‘mini’ pool are fabulous - the smaller children thought it was especially for them! Bedrooms are spacious and very comfortable - the master suite is really superb with the most amazing jacuzzi bath in the ensuite- so many bubbles. BBQ area is a real gem - pretty cool in the early mornings and during the evening. Fab comfortable and sumptuous seating area. The views of the mountains are just glorious and a sight to behold every time you pull back a curtain and open a door. Kitchen is so well equipped and a great place to cook a mean breakfast. Beautiful terraced seating area for lounging or eating and drinking and the play/fun room leading to the pool is just great. The kids loved that room and we had a great family party there one evening with the magically lit garden bringing a smile to all. There is so much one could say and I could go on and on and on - but you know what ‘do it - book it right now. I promise you will love it’.
Last but definitely not least our host and owner of this beautiful villa - Fergal the fabulous (seriously) what an amazing man. From the welcome package (which I have never seen the like of before) to popping round to light the bbq because us morons couldn’t - believe me it took him seconds!! Without going into detail there was reason for this man to go way beyond what would be classed as ‘normal’ for our family and we will all be grateful for his kindness, generosity and unfailing support. Thank you

Thank you everyone for taking the time to write such a lovely review. It was great to get to know you and my pleasure to host you. All the very best from sunny Oludeniz and I hope to welcome you back again someday in the not too distant future. My best regards to the whole family. Fergal
Located in an area of outstanding beauty in the famed Olu Deniz beach area, this stunning villas elevated site affords sweeping views but plenty of privacy.
With the best location, near the villages, close to the beach and only the mountains as a back drop, the villa is a 10 minute walk from the neighbouring village of Hisaronu, 5 mins from the shops of Ovacik and a 7 minute ride to the beach.
Sitting on the terrace admiring the breathtaking views you will be reminded why Villa Babylon is the ideal getaway for a peaceful holiday, a truly luxurious holiday home with plenty to do and see within easy reach
For anyone interested in gardening, the gardens cascade down the mountain on different levels and have been sown with Mediterranean plants and include a lower terrace sown with scented roses, acacia trees and oleander shrubs all selected for their intense perfumes and a canopied summer day bed provides the ideal place to catch up on reading.
