Guestbook comments from the manager

We have just returned from an absolutely fantastic 14-day holiday at the Villa Aquarius – one of our best summer holidays ever! The weather was superb, the location suited us and the on-site care we received was non-intrusive but always there when required. A superb holiday! It’s worth stressing that this is ideally a holiday Villa for families (particularly extended families because of its spaciousness) looking for some peace and quiet but also with the option of visiting by car the local sights, restaurants and shopping. Nightlife for us usually consisted of a quiet read and wine on the balcony once the last evening swim in the pool was finished and our toddler was in bed! The Villa is located about 20 minutes drive from Marmaris. It’s in a small hamlet of properties about 1.5 miles off the main road literally in the middle of a forest. Peaceful, quiet and well away from the traditional tourist areas – a big plus for us! A hire car is a must but don’t be put off because the main roads in Turkey are relatively quiet and very easy to drive on. The Car Hire company met us at Dalaman airport and the drive to the Villa took about 1.5 hours. (NB If you’re taking a large family, I did hire a 9-seater vehicle in Turkey last year!) The Villa is very spacious, beautifully furnished and was spotlessly clean on arrival. A real home from home with all possible amenities including towels, washing machine, dishwasher, gas hob and electric oven. The towels and washing machine means you don’t have to pack very much, leaving space in your suitcase for your shopping on your return home! There is an Air Conditioning unit in the main lounge but we didn’t switch this on once! We did use the fans at night to keep the air moving in the bedrooms. Don’t be put off by the pool being “unheated”! It was a perfect temperature (quite warm) whilst we were there albeit this was peak season and air temperatures were in the 100’s. My daughter was in the pool before 9.00am virtually every day and on the lazy days we had relaxing at the Villa she was in the pool most of the day! Worth mentioning that the pool is a decent size too, was treated and checked every day and that the filters kept it perfectly clean. Our itinerary included a day and two evenings (restaurants) in Marmaris town, a day out on a fishing boat (private hire), visit to the waterfalls on the

Fantastic family villa

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic house, lovely lovely owners and the service from day of booking was amazing! Very spacious we went as a group of 8 and didn't feel crowded once. Amazing pool! Could go on all day! Car hire is a must for day to day activities. Spotlessly clean and the fresh fruit and veg is a winner too! Thanks Denise and burcin for making our holiday so amazing xx

Stunning Villa & Pool In Beautiful Rural Location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at this Villa. We have booked again for 3 weeks in August this year!

We absolutely love it here. The Villa is spacious and the amenities are excellent. The private pool is spotlessly clean, a wonderful temperature and a reasonable size. The Villa is located about 20 minutes drive from the bustling town of Marmaris but is also handy for all the other tourist attractions to visit. Our itinerary included a day and two evenings (restaurants) in Marmaris town, a day out on a fishing boat (private hire), visit to the waterfalls on the way to the idyllic village of Selimiye, snorkelling in the sea at Bozburun, a walk along the sand-bar at Hisaronu, Cleopatra's Island and regular visits to the Asparan pool and restaurant just 3 miles up the road (Turkish breakfasts are amazing!).

Car hire is essential but driving in Turkey is really easy - good main roads and very quiet by UK standards.

In summary, a quiet and peaceful location ideal for extended families. Provides an opportunity to sample the wonderful "real" Turkey - Climate, people (friendly) and food!. Highly recommended!
