Villa Alexander is a beautiful white-washed palazzo style villa that is a little classical, a little contemporary and a little funky! Set in lush gardens, with large sun terraces around the heated glittering turquoise pool. The large pool terrace, dining balcony, funky relaxing outdoor furniture and chairs with the beautiful gardens of palm trees, flowers, citrus trees and lush borders really set it out as one of the most i beautiful holiday villa's in the area. One of the reasons guests come back year after year.
The entrance level is an open planned living area furnished with comfortable sofa's, a wood burning stove (so all evenings are warm ones all year around) and a sleek fully equipped stylish modern kitchen with a large fridge-freezer, dishwasher, oven & gas hob. This level opens onto a large balcony overlooking the lower gardens, terraces & pool with a dining table that will sit eight and an outside sofa and chairs ideal for evening or pre-dinner drinks.
Downstairs is the bright, spacious & cool pool lounge with a sprawling modular sofa, flat screen TV, DVD player, playstation & cable. A white washed corner fireplace makes the place glow and gives a fabulous warm treat for those who stay during the early spring and late autumn, winter season. Another special treat on this level with a master bedroom and shower room away from the rest of the bedrooms. Sliding doors open onto the large sun-drenched heated turquoise pools flanked with palm trees, table and chairs, terraced gardens, some seriously funky pool furniture and plenty of sun beds. Unlike a some of the other villa's we have the space for all guests to spread out around the pool very important if you need to be next to small children in the shallow pools.
Summer at Villa Alexander is about being outside whether in the sun or in the shade, so we have gone the extra to really try to make the gardens, poolside & terraces set us apart from the other villas in the region.
Included: The villa is equipped with towels for both use in the bathroom and the beach. Each group of guests will receive a well stocked welcome pack including, bread, butter, cheese, milk & water. If you are are staying for two weeks or longer the villa will be cleaned once a week and all the bed linen and towels will be changed.
Our local manager, Yunus, speaks fluent English, meets all guests and can help with any queries or questions during the stay.
What we can also do for you: Organise transfers between the villa and the airport for you. The cost of these depends on exactly how many people and we can give you a quote on inquiry.
Because of it's size the villa is ideal for large family groups, has a cot & highchair facilities, as well as bed guards and an anti-child rail on the stove top making it one of the safest villa's in the area for small children.
I bought Villa Alexander as a holiday home for my own use, and also somewhere for me to meet up with my family and friends from the UK whilst living in Asia. Now I'm back living in Australia it is still a very much used and loved holiday home providing a welcoming escape from the Australian winter.
I love the Mediterranean area, the dry heat, warm nights and laid back atmosphere and Olu Deniz is just beautiful, with a great beach and so easy to get to from all of the UK.
Marc Field purchased this villa in 2005
It was one of the nicest villa's in the area with a great potential due to the large plot size. It was part of a group of about 14 yellow and white villa's developed in a small valley.
The gardens and poolside are the largest in this small group of villa's which is important as most of the time you want to be outside and around the pool area. There really is nothing better then lying by the pool drink in hand doing absolutely nothing. The villa and pool area is big enough that even at full capacity you are not cramped around the poolside lying on top of each other or all stuck in the same room indoors. The pool is also kept well screened so you are private and secure.
Lastly it is really well located for Olu Deniz, Hisaronu, the town of Fethiye and historic local sights but a little tucked away to be quiet and relaxing.
Location, the largest pool area & gardens in the development, the privacy & spaciousness without over-crowding and the high level that the villa is maintained to.
Way after our neighbouring villa's are in the shade you'll still be lounging around the poolside. The days really are longer at Villa Alexander and the tans deeper.
The white washed fireplace in the downstairs pool lounge turns those cooler evenings in early spring and late autumn & winter into a magical holiday of days around the pool tanning and cosy evenings in watching the fire… where's the fun or romance in sitting under the reverse air-con!
The pool is heated which is a necessity in April, May & June when the ground is still warming up. We do switch the heating off in June through to Sept when it is not needed.
We have just got back from Villa Alexander and wouldn't hesitate to book again.
Perfect inside and out with attention to detail second to none. The villa is very spacious and ideally located for the two resorts of Olu Deniz and Hissaronu, less than 5 minute walk to the dolmus stop.
We spent most of our holiday around the pool as it is in sunshine all day and the pool is a fabulous size which is great for swimming but also great for non swimmers like myself.
The Buzz bar and Billy's beach are a must to visit during your stay, everyone is so friendly and welcoming.
Thanks to Mark and to Yunus we had a seamless holiday from landing at Dalaman to leaving all transfers were arranged for us and are much cheaper and quicker than some of the bigger transfer companies.
Their services and communication leading up to, during and after our holiday have been commendable.
Can't wait to go back.
We visited Villa Alexander early October 2016, 4 adults, 2 of which are technically pensioners (they just don't think they are).
From the offset, Marc, the owner, was incredibly helpful! Before even booking the villa I bugged him with questions to ensure we were choosing wisely. His prompt, polite replies put my mind at ease immediately, so we went ahead and booked our holiday.
We arrived at Dalaman airport after our 4 hour flight from the UK and, as promised, the transfers we had arranged through Marc, were ready and waiting. The ride to the Villa was very comfortable, the driver had bottles of water available for us to quench our thirst which was a lovely touch. The drive to the villa is approximately an hour. We arrived at Villa Alexander just after midnight, the driver gave us the keys and showed us in, helping us with our cases.
The Villa is beautiful, set out over 3 floors, very well furnished, clean and has lots of personal touches. A welcome pack is provided which contains enough to get you started without having to pop straight out to the shop! (Water, milk, biscuits, cheese, bread, soft drinks and more).
The kitchen is very well equipped with utensils, crockery and useful gadgets.
There are 4 bedrooms, 2 doubles and two twins, 3 of the rooms are together upstairs and they share a bathroom, the 4th bedroom is on the lowest level has direct access to the pool and its own bathroom.
The balcony off the living are is beautiful, we spent quite a few eveinigs out there!
The pool area and garden looks beautiful, the pool is one depth throughout and should be heated in the cooler weather (unfortunately there were a few issues with this during our stay but Yunus tried his best to rectify the situation). It was sometimes a little tricky for the elder members of our party to cross over to the other side of the pool as you have to use the stepping stones, they did make it across slowly. The garden feels very private due to the trees and shrubs.
The location of the Villa is fab! It is set on a rather steep hill but it did not hinder anyone in our party. Hisaronou is within walkable distance although we opted for a taxi quite a few times, taxis are reasonably priced.
To summarise, we had a fantastic holiday in a beautiful villa and I would not hesitate to book again! x
3rd time staying at Villa and already making enquires to go back again next year! The improvements made since our last visit are wonderful - larger pool and sun terrace are a huge plus. Villa is so spacious and fully equipt with everything you could need to make your holiday perfect.
Can't wait to go back!!
Villa was perfect for our family of 5 - lots of space to spread out. Air-conditioning worked well which was lucky given the heat the week we were there. An easy 5-10 minute walk to Hisaronu and all its bars and restaurants and also to the dolmus stop to get into Olu Deniz and a small shop even closer which sold the basics and Turkish pancakes. Our kids went paragliding through Sky Sports who had a shop in Olu Deniz - they loved it and we could watch their progress live on screens safely on the ground! Tried out lots of different places to eat although it is hard to find traditional Turkish menus in Hisaronu and Olu Deniz. Ate in Kayakoy one evening - about 10 minutes away by taxi or dolmus and had a memorable meal with spectacular views of the deserted town - abandoned when its Greek inhabitants left after Turkish independence.
Pool was beautiful and immaculately maintained - only once was up in time to catch the pool cleaner but guessing they come daily. Spent lots of time in and around the pool - great quality sunbeds and daybeds to choose from. Plenty of towels for the bathroom and the pool area provided.
Only snag was the problem we had with wifi - had about 3 days out of 7 without it working which with three teenagers is always going to be a problem - had to call out the agents 3 times who were able to help. Also arranged transfers and taxis through Moonlight. We used them for a day trip to Salikkent Gorge which was spectacular (go early to avoid the crowds on tours).
If we go back to this area would be disappointed if we couldn't book this villa again. Excellent service all round - from the communication beforehand from Marc and the help from the local agents.
We've been to this villa a few times and are regulars to the area and really rate this villa. Mark is incredibly efficient to deal with, emails are answered promptly, transfers taken care of, advance info sent and it's just too easy! He's had the gardens and pool done since we were last here and it has really added to the place. The pool side is big, the pool is fabulous and the inside of the villa is very sophisticated and plush. One thing I'm quite big on is how clean a place is when I walk in the door and this passed as my husband and kids call it the M test! Thank you Mark for the use of your villa again and can honestly recommend this as one of the best places we've stayed in the region.
Having stayed at this place last year and thought it was a bit of a gem we booked again for this year. Wow! The garden and the pool had been extended and the place really is quite breathtaking, the walk in, walk out pool is amazing, you feel like you are in Hollywood, the gardens and terraces are just enormous and some very cool outside furniture gives great places to relax when not sun bathing. The villa itself was spotless and after much mind searching we realised the downstairs had been refurnished, very nicely done, the management team were fantastic and we'll back again. Very, very impressed returners!
With probably the best location in Olu Deniz, up against the bottom of the Babadag mountain, north facing, with a large south facing poolside we are ideally placed for everything from the lagoon to Kayakoy, Fethiye or Hisaronu. In a quiet location a few minutes from everything we have sun whilst our neighbours are already in the shade and the space to spread out around the pool to enjoy it. The days are simply longer at Villa Alexander.
All the bedrooms are stylishly furnished & finished with plenty of storage space and surfaces. Every room is air-conditioned with a fireplace in the pool lounge and a wood burning stove in the upstairs sitting room. A beautiful and relaxing place to stay from the sun-drenched days to the warm evenings. A weekly maid service is offered. We can arrange transfers to and from the airport and there are plenty of car hire options on the area.
