About Rod Canning
We purchased the villa in 2011 after first coming to Dalyan on holiday in 2007 and returning at least once every year. Dalyan is family orientated, small and friendly and our daughters love coming here and enjoy exploring the town together where they feel safe and secure. We consider ourselves to be very fortunate in having discovered this unique and beautiful part of Turkey. For your peace of mind the villa is managed by King Emlak whose office is only a 5 minute walk away. They care for the villa 24/7 and in the unlikely event you experience any problems they are on hand, extremely efficient and multi lingual.

Why Rod Canning chose Dalyan
We had visited many places in the Mediterranean and Turkey but we fell in love with this beautiful part of Turkey as it offered everything in one place. An outstanding safe sandy beach (home to the Caretta turtles) - either a short inexpensive boat trip or minibus ride away. The beautiful inland lake with the hot springs and mud baths. Riverside walks with views of the Tombs and historic Kaunos The small bustling town only a 8 minute walk away with all its choice of restaurants, shops etc
What makes this Villa unique
The villa whilst only 8 minutes walk from the town is located in a quiet cul -de-sac with unspoilt views over pomegranate orchard and the mountains in the distance. In the evening the sun sets over the mountains and you can sit on your balcony, relaxing with a glass of wine or sarap ( as it is known in Turkey! ) and enjoy the spectacular sunsets! The large and spacious open plan ground floor and good sized bedrooms ensures the villa is cool and airy even on the hottest days. Swim in the pool at any time day or night - it is exclusively for you!

Absolutely fabulous!! This villa is superb. The minute we walked through the door we just knew it was going to be our home from home for the next 15 nights. Beautifully furnished with comfortable lounge furniture and extremely comfortable beds. The kitchen was possibly even better equipped than my own!! Everything you needed was provided. Now to the outside area, WOW! Massive covered terrace with outside dining furniture, and a fabulous swinging hammock, so comfortable lying in the shade with my book. The pool is huge and the gardens immaculate and so private. The views are amazing. The nearest supermarket is literally round the corner and very well stocked. A further 5 to 10 minute stroll and we were right in the centre and by the river. Considering how close the villa is to everything, the peace and quiet of the area is just what we wanted. Needless to say, we even booked for next year before our flight had departed for home. Thank you Diana and Rod for sharing your beautiful home in Dalyan.
We are so thrilled you enjoyed your stay in our villa and for your wonderful comments. We do try to cater for our guests needs and to make our villa as perfect as we can. It is our second home and we want everyone to feel like it is theirs too! We have great teams helping us with this and we are glad to see they are achieving it. We are delighted you are coming again next year - such a massive compliment for us! Thanks once again and Villa Zuleyha is waiting for you in 2019!! Rod and Diana
Great holiday in a fantastic villa
This was my first holiday in Turkey and I was so pleased I chose Dalyan and Villa Zuleyha. The villa was wonderful – clean, spacious and the pool was amazing! Close enough to the centre but not noisy at all. My friend and I had a great time at night and the days were spent lounging around the pool or on lazy boat trips! A great holiday in a fantastic villa – the owners were so helpful – thank you Rod and Diana. Can’t wait until my next visit!
So glad you enjoyed your holiday - it’s definitely time for another one! We try to make our villa as nice as possible and are so happy that you were happy too! Thanks once again Rod and Diana
Stunning location/house and the villa was brilliant value for money. Owners were very responsive and helpful before and during our stay. I would highly recommend and will definitely stay again!
So glad you enjoyed your stay and great to know the villa met with your expectations. It was lovely talking to you and you are welcome back anytime you wish. See you soon
Fabulous Villa - A Real Home From Home
We loved our stay in this lovely villa. The location was great .. not too far from town and in a quiet cul-de-sac. The whole process of booking was straightforward, communication from the owners Diana & Rod as well as their managing agents Sarah and Hannah was fabulous. Sarah came to see is the day after our arrival to make sure we had settled in and to give us information about the area and things to do. As we are regular visitors to Dalyan we didn't need too much information but if its your first visit she will be able to book trips and tell you about local facilities etc. The villa itself is a real home from home. Really spacious and provides everything you need. The kitchen was well equipped for those times you want to eat at home, but there are some fabulous restaurants in the town and on the way into town. The pool and garden areas are lovely and were tended to every day. There is also a great supermarket just up the road. Couldn't really fault this villa ... you will love your stay here and Dalyan is just perfect .. our favourite place to be. And a big thank you to Mustafa who collected us from the airport and took us back again .. great service.
Beautiful villa, wonderful location
We've stayed in a number of villas before in Dalyan but never wanted to return to the same one for whatever reason. This one was different.
In a very quiet cul-de-sac, 10 mins walk away from the main town, it's got everything you need for a wonderful holiday. The local supermarket is literally a 3 minute walk away and, if you don't fancy the walk to town, it'll cost you less than £3 in a taxi.
The villa itself was immaculate inside and out - the pool is a perfect size, the garden very private and the swing seat proved incredibly popular with our daughter. The villa is modern, spacious and - as is very important with teenage children - the Wifi worked well and was fast!
I'd more than happily recommend this villa if you are lucky enough to be holidaying in Dalyan. The owners are incredibly helpful, were very easy to deal with and made the whole process from start to finish, a pleasure.
Excellent villa, perfect for a relaxing holiday.
Villa Zuleyha is clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. It is in an ideal location close to the town centre yet quiet because it's in a cul-de-sac. All the facilities mentioned in the description are spot on, we had everything we needed, the swing seat on the verandah was fought over on a daily basis! We had such a relaxing time, it's perfect to unwind, read by the pool or stay inside when the heat got too much, the adjustable air-conditioning was much appreciated!
We (family of four) have been to Dalyan many times so have sampled quite a lot of the restaurants, on the recommendation in a previous review we tried Begonville House on the last day , our only regret is that we left it till the end, excellent food, well presented and friendly service, shame we didn't have the chance to go again! Turn right out of the cul-de-sac and follow the road till the end, bear right and it's on the left.
Back to the villa, the pool and garden are maintained on a daily basis, much fun was had in the pool,
I would recommend villa Zuleyha to family and friends and would stay there again if the opportunity arose. Rod and Diana are extremely helpful and get back to you promptly with any queries.
Hi Subiha. We are delighted you enjoyed your holiday in our villa and that it was ideal for you and your family. The swing seat is a real family favourite with us too - I think I may have to get another one! You are never far from a good eating place in Dalyan - there are just so many! Thanks for your great review and please do stay in touch. Regards Rod and Diana
Special interest holidays:
There is an amazing range of habitats in the local area; from the reed beds north of the town to the Koycegiz Lake. With many species of birds, from White Tailed Eagles to Red-rumped swallows, expert birders and amateurs would struggle not to have a great birding holiday.We canorganise guided walking tours through areas. We manage perfect accommodation for large groups throughout the year, that are great for comfortable relaxation when not out in the wilderness.
Walking groups taking international excursions are aware of the amazing possibilities available to walkers and ramblers in and around Dalyan, Turkey.There are a number of great walks to be done in the local area; from the walk up to Candir and Kaunos over stunning mountains and rock tombs, to the Liquid Amber Fosrets of Dalyan.The Famous Lykian Way walk of 300+km across the southern coast of Turkey, is a trekking holiday for the hardcore (especially in the summer).
Dalyan is best known for its lush greenery, the winding river and a beach which is not just a natural wonder but also won The Times Best Open Space Award in 2010. Famous for the Caretta Caretta turtles. Over 6km of golden sands with access by bus, car and boat there are cafeterias at either end for refreshments but plenty of empty space amongst the dunes to escape to.
The nearest airport is Dalaman which is a 20 minutes drive away. Once in Dalyan car hire is not essential we are very central to town and town itself is small and everything in easy walking distance.
Everything is within walking or cycling distance in Dalyan. This villa is only a 3 minute walk to the nearest supermarket, and a further 5 minutes to local restaurants, bars and cafes and the river. Fethiye and Olu Deniz are 50 minutes drive away. Marmaris is about 75 minutes drive. Both of those towns also have ferries to Rhodes.
Dalyan town itself is compact stretching only a mile in any direction from the centre and is framed by a glorious backdrop of pine clad mountains in every direction. The flatness of town make it a perfect place for walking with children and the elderly and a delight to cycle around. For more active holidaymakers there are forests and hiking hills all within walking distance.
Dalyan is also distinguished by the lack of package tourists though there are still plenty of bars and restaurants to cater for all tastes. If you can’t find the items you want in the shops there is a sweet local market on Saturdays.
