Sinjap Villa is built and furnished in a traditional Turkish Style with high wooden ceilings and balconies combined with all modern facilities. The Villa has a private infinity pool with stunning valley views. Set in beautiful gardens with an open terrace and private courtyard giving both sun bathing areas and shady retreats. This villa is ideal for those wishing to experience a tranquil country idyll within easy reach of beaches, amenities and the Turkish Resort of Akyaka (12 mins drive)
We are a Turkish/English couple Melih and Justine Kavak who have been married for 20 years and lived in Akyaka for 11 years. We live in Akyaka during the summer and will always be on hand if required to help with local information and anything else you may need. We feel we have the right combination of local knowledge and understanding of what holidaymakers may need to make the most of their holidays in the area. Nothing pleases us more than to see our guests happy and relaxed and enjoying their well deserved break.
Justine Kavak purchased this villa in 2007
We bought the plot of land Sinjap villa is located on in 2007 and completed the build of the Villa and Grounds in 2013. We were attracted to Yilanlik Village due to the beautiful greenery of the valley and the peace and tranquility of the area. The plot that Sinjap is built on is unique as to three side of the property is forestry and will never be developed also as it is set on a hillside looking down over the valley the views from the villa will always remain the same. This is why we purchased this plot due to its unique position which means it will always remain a peaceful and secluded villa.
Although we highlight the tranquility of the villas location it is only a 5 min drive to local facilities and attractions. The beautiful resort of Akyaka is 12mins drive away and the unique location of the Gokova Valley means that larger resorts of Marmaris, Bodrum and Fethiye are also accessible if you wanted some more excitement. We have found all of our guests have enjoyed either relaxing at the villa or using it as a Haven to return to after exploring the local area.
Sinjap Villa ist von Bergen umgeben und bietet pure Ruhe und Erholung in einer ländlichen Gegend. Wer wirklich abschalten möchte, dem kann man dieses Anwesen nur empfehlen. Ein Auto ist allerdings notwendig, um Großeinkäufe zu tätigen oder ab und zu etwas zu unternehmen, wie z.B. Akyaka, Marmaris oder andere Orte aufzusuchen. Man bekommt nach fünf Minuten Autofahrt in einem Tante-Emma-Laden des Ortes auch alle für das tägliche Leben notwendigen Lebensmittel und weitere Utensilien. Zu empfehlen ist auch das Restaurant Yörük Ali in der Nähe des Ortes, sonst sollte man aber nach Akyaka fahren, wenn man noch andere Spezialitäten der Region probieren möchte. Als fünfköpfige Familie haben wir uns in der Villa sehr wohl gefühlt, da es quasi an nichts gefehlt hat.
We really enjoyed our stay here, the villa is fully equipped and well maintained, garden and the pool are beautiful! It's located in the woods, yet easy accessible, a few minutes drive from Gokova and Akyaka and surroundings are astonishing! We got everything we needed and the owner was very helpful and prompt every time. Definitively we recommend this accommodation especially for couples and families. Last but not least, Akyaka is one of the best places for kitesurfing as it's always windy (literally)!
If you would like a holiday away from it all, this is the place for you. very tranquil setting with views over the valley. Very well appointed house, well thought out and well equipped. Comfortable beds and showers that worked. And your very own guard dog - a real home from home! Justine, the owner, could not have been more helpful and accomodating. Nothing was too much trouble for her. looking forward to going back and exploring some more.
Just returned from a great holiday spent at Sinjap villa. We were able to find the villa easily as good directions had been provided by Justine. Villa is even better than the photos on the website and is set in a very rural position with wonderful views of the mountains and valley.Justine has thoughtfully provided plenty of home comforts such as dishwasher,microwave,washing machine,DVD player,etc. The of the villa is very spacious and spotlessly clean and huge windows to take advantage of the amazing views. Outside is a lovely pool and BBQ area with lots of quirky seating areas. There are some lovely walks in the forest immediately from Sinjap with great opportunities to spot local wildlife. Nearest supermarkets are to be found in Akyaka a short car ride away. Lots of restaurants and bars to be found here along with a lovely beach. Amazing fish restaurants along the Azmak river as well. Akyaka is also establishing itself as a major kiteboarding venue as well. Book a has a few shops and cafes for essentials and a weekly market on Saturday which sells all locally grown fruit and vegetables. We have been on a boat trip to Cleopatras Island,trips to Marmaris and also found a great water park about 20 minutes away from the villa. Overall I would definately return to Sinjap and certainly recommend to others. The location,accommodation and activities available all combine to make a wonderful holiday.
