About the property

Villa in Dalyan, Aegean Region, Turkey - Peaceful Location Very Near River, 20 Minutes By Frequent River Boats To Iztuzu Beach, Same By Dolmu

Bes Kizlar was built in 2007 to a high standard on land we had bought in the desirable Maras residential area. Maras Mah is on a lovely bend of the river set away from the main street of the town but within easy strolling distance of the restaurants, shops and harbour. There are several rustic jetties nearby with stunning views of the rock tombs and some nearby little riverside boutique pensions you can visit for a Turkish breakfast or a Raki by the river! Bes Kizlar has a romantic mature garden with shady sitting areas and is full of tropical plants, tall palms, banana, and pomegranate trees. There is a large covered dining terrace with mountain view, seating for 8 and a barbecue fireplace, all enclosed by a wrought iron balustrade with gates to help keep toddlers safe from the pool area. The villa has contemporary decor and furnishings, 3 bedrooms, all with lovely views, (2 of the rock tombs) and an open plan living room/kitchen/dining room with French doors to terrace.

The villa has Wifi and a satellite TV package with some English programmes and films.

About Steve and Shirley Bradley

We have been very privileged to have lived in this beautiful Devon river valley for about 25 years. We have managed to raise 5 daughters in this time without contemplating serious self harm- which we consider quite an achievement! Crannacombe is the home of a long established herd of South Devon cows and their calves. We also established Heron Valley organic Cider and Apple Juices on the farm to utilize the apple orchards here. We are lucky that all our girls share our love of this area- so much so that they have remained either in this valley or very close by. We love this location, we are within easy reach of myriad stunning and unspoiled beaches, beautiful country and coastal walks and interesting towns and pretty villages, e.g. Salcombe, Dartmouth, Totnes and Hope Cove.

Steve and Shirley Bradley purchased this villa in 2007

Why Steve and Shirley Bradley chose Dalyan

We fell in love with Dalyan when we came on it by chance when exploring Turkeys stunning and green Turquoise coast over 20 years ago. Only 25 minutes from the airport it remains pretty much the same 60s feeling laid back atmosphere place we found years ago with lovely friendly locals. It had and still has a very ahead of its time attitude of rejecting high-rise development and fiercely protecting its beautiful river, landscape and the stunning Turtle beach it is famous for. We have been coming all this time and still find new places to explore. There are beautiful wild flowers in the Spring, the storks soaring in the thermals and the wild turtles in the river and sea to watch out for.

What makes this villa unique

Our villa is perfectly situated in a quiet residential area very near the river but only a short level stroll to the town with its myriad restaurants and small shops. The villa is more screened from the road than most other villas as it has such a large verdant garden which has 2 distinct areas and a low wall between which affords privacy when sunbathing by the pool!We have an excellent company who look after the property and do transfers and showing in,/ key handling for our guests and will help with any genuine emergencies you may experience. Minor problems that may happen, e.g. light bulbs needing replacing, a dripping tap etc, can be reported at their office near Migros supermarket and be dealt with when convenient.

Guestbook comments from the owner

1.Our best holidays have been spent in this Villa. The owners are very friendly and helpful and the Villa is beautiful: well appointed and spacious with a lovely garden and swimming pool. It is ideally situated in a quiet part of Dalyan, but within easy walking distance of the centre. There is so much to see and do in the local area, we just have to keep coming back!- The Montague family, South Devon.

2.I had a fantastic holiday at Villa Bes Kizlar- perfect location, an easy five minute walk to the town centre yet in a quiet plot with amazing views of the mountains and Rock Tombs! The Villa itself is well presented, comfortable and has everything you could need inside and out, but the tropical garden and private pool really make this a special place to stay.

I couldn't recommend this highly enough.- Katherine Masters, London.

Fantastic property in an idyllic location

  • 5 of 5

We have visited various places in Turkey since 2012 and this villa was by far the best place we have stayed.

Very well equipped and tastefully decorated, making a home from home. The open plan kitchen/dining/living room is just perfect for cooking and relaxing. The barbecue which is built into the villa was excellent too, just next to a large dining table.

When we were dropped off at the property there was milk and water in the fridge which was a nice touch as we arrived late at night.

Kaunos Villas, the management company were very helpful as were Shirley and Steve (the owner's) and made our stay including providing transfers and car hire seamless.

The villa is only a couple minutes from restaurants and river side cafes but so quiet and peaceful. The pool was great with plenty of sun loungers and the gardens well kept.

I would recommend a hire car to explore the surrounding area. If you hire a car from Kaunos Villas for 6 days or more you get free airport transfers and very competitive rates.

We will definitely be back in the near future.

Thanks to Shirley, Steve and Salih (from Kaunos Villas) for the perfect holiday.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review and I will pass on your comments to our management company who, as you have noticed, look after it , and our guests ,so well. It helps that it is in such a lovely location, a short stroll into town , with lots of lovely riverside bars and restaurants nearby but not close enough to be disturbed by the centre of town activity. We do hope you book again and it has been a pleasure to help your family to have such a memorable holiday.

Villa Bez Kizlar in Dalyan is an absolutely superb villa in every way.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we decided to book this villa the service and attention to detail could not be faulted.

The owners were most helpful and gave us very useful advise as we had not been to Dalyan before.

Their management company, who they recommended for transfers and car hire, excelled in their service. They were there to meet us at the airport, the transfer vehicle was of a very high standard and they even provided us each with a bottle of chilled water - which was very much appreciated! On arrival at the villa the driver let us in and explained the alarm system. Within a very short period of us arriving, the hire car was delivered to the villa ready for us to use straightaway.

An appointment was made for the following day for Salih (the Manager of the management company) to meet us at the villa - he was very helpful in answering the queries that we had about what to see and the surrounding area.

The villa, gardens and pool were superb! Everything is so well maintained. The garden is mature and very private, the pool is of a good size and is cleaned daily and there are plenty of areas to sunbathe or sit in the shade.

The villa is every bit as nice as the pictures on the web site. It is light, airy and decorated and furnished to a very high standard.

The kitchen is very well equipped - it has just about everything you could ever need.

There is an abundance of crockery and glassware ( some villas we have rented in the past have had just 6 of everything and you quickly run out of things) and plenty of cooking equipment and utensils if you want to eat in.

The beds were very comfy and there was plenty of storage for our clothes. My only criticism of the bedrooms is that the blinds at the windows did nothing to block the early morning sunshine. Darker blinds or curtains would, in my opinion, be a good addition to the property ( or take some eye masks with you).

Dalyan itself is a delightful resort. At the time we went (Spring Bank Holiday) it was quiet - enough people to create a nice atmosphere but it certainly wasn't busy.

There are so many restaurants to choose from - it was really difficult to decide where to eat - but I would recommend Lime restaurant which provided us with the best meal we had had in a long time and the service was also excellent.

We went gorge walking which was great fun and got a small boat across the river and walked to the rock tombs (which were unfortunately closed) and then on to the Kounos ruins. Overall a fab holiday.

Wonderful, relaxing villa in a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time here. A truly lovely villa in a quiet, stunning location.

We have been to Dalyan a few times and for once thought we would try a villa instead of the normal hotel we go to and just loved it. This end of Dalyan is far prettier and quieter than the other end we usually go to, also being fairly near to the centre of town which was great.

There was an abundance of lovely restaurants to choose from as well as two local shops which came in very handy. We would love to return and certainly will one day. Thank you.

Fantastic villa!

  • 5 of 5

Bes Kizlar was everything we wished for and more. Comfortable, stylish, clean and well maintained, the rooms were spacious and, despite the heat outside, cool and airy. The pool was a big hit with our girls, and the terrace and beautiful gardens were ideal for evening barbecues and late breakfasts. Location wise, the villa is perfect - a short, pretty walk into town, and, if you rent a car, within easy reach of beautiful beaches and the most dramatic scenery we've seen for a long time. Definitely the best villa we've ever stayed in, anywhere - thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your appreciative review.It is a stunning area, full of wildlife which can be viewed from the numerous water taxi boats that go through the reed beds to the Turtle(Iztuzu) beach. Even going by the numerous dolmus to theTurtle beach is a fabulous ride seeing beautiful scenery along the way. As you hired a car you explored all the nearby coastline and into the mountains behind Dalyan so I expect you saw a lot of interesting little villages and enjoyed " off the beaten track" experiences. we have been going there 25 years and still find new places to see!

Minibus , taxi or hire car 20-30minutes to Iztuzu (turtle beach)Similar time by numerous riverboats from Dalyan waterfront to Turtle beach. Stunning mountain scenery the road way and magical scenery the boat way weaving through the reed beds alive with egrets, turtles , storks, herons and numerous kingfishers. Iztuzu beach is a protected nest site of loggerhead turtles, you can always find a deserted stretch of fine sand and the view of surrounding mountains is heavenly.


25 minutes drive from Dalaman airport. Car hire is recommended because of the fabulous area to explore but for 1 weeks holiday the water taxis and minibuses, very cheap to use and numerous in Dalyan, would supply most guests' need to explore. Or you can rent a boatman plus boat if you want to have your own private transport to the beach , to the hot spring and mud baths, or to the lake. They can cook for you on the boat for an extra fee. good car hire advised through our Dalyan agent


Approx 600metre stroll to town centre 30 mins drive to Gocek, 50 mins drive to Fethiye. Opposite side of river from our house is ancient Lycian city of Caunos with amphitheatre, many archaeological ruins and of course the famous Rock Tombs. A row boat waiting at the tow-path near our villa will take visitors across to spend time on the site or it can be a stopoff on a riverboat cruise.
