About the property

4 bedroom, 4 bathroom Villa with mountain views, private pool and mature gardens

The Villa has an open plan ground floor, with brand new kitchen and appliances, bathroom and separate laundry room. There are three sofas (2 of which fold out into double sofa beds). In early 2016 we extended to include a 4th bedroom (downstairs) with newly remodelled en-suite Upstairs there are three bedrooms each with their own bathroom, three security boxes and loads of storage. The upstairs bedrooms have access to a large balcony. Sited on a large plot with more than 30 pomegranate trees, there is a lovely pool (with shallow end), a köşk, garage, barbecue and outdoor shower. At a leisurely pace, the villa is just 15 minutes walk (along the river) to the centre of town where there are myriad bars and restaurants. A river taxi or local bus service will take you to Iztuzu beach. Other local attractions include: Kaunos, the Lycian Rock Tombs, Sultaniye Mud baths and thermal springs, Köyceğiz freshwater lake, and local markets. There are plenty of tour companies offering daily excursions.

About Allie Crozier

We are Allie and Dan. We also have homes in Northumberland and Kent and busy jobs with BT. We first came to Dalyan in 2012 and eventually decided to buy somewhere for us to use as a holiday home in 2015.

*Please note that as we have just bought the property it will take us a little while to fully put our own stamp on the place. We have already added solar hot water system and a new modern kitchen. We have just added a 4th (downstairs) bedroom and had the house painted inside and out over the winter of 2015/2016. The pool has been newly grouted and there is a new pool house. Apologies that the photos still have the for sale sign up (we'll update these over the coming weeks).

Allie Crozier purchased this villa in 2015

Why Allie Crozier chose Dalyan

We holidayed in Dalyan for a number of years and fell in love with the place. It's friendly and easy-going and we come here to relax; it is a constant draw for us.

We chose this particular Villa for its individual style, large terrace, beautiful pool and gardens and amazing mountain views.

What makes this villa unique

Having viewed a number of properties, it was the open plan living and outdoor space that really attracted us to this property. We love to relax on the balcony whilst enjoying the mountain views.

The villa is on a 1000sq.m plot which is double the size of most properties in the area.

Stunning villa, a little bit of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Upon our arrival at Villa Elsie, we were all in awe of this beautiful property. The pictures on the website do not do it justice. I've been to Turkey a few times but this is by far the most beautiful of them all. Surrounded by the mountains, it really is the most idyllic place to relax and enjoy the sunshine. The villa had everything you could possibly need for a wonderfully comfortable stay. Just 10 mins walk from the main town, it is in a fabulous location. The pool was lovely, perfect for the children and us adults to jump in and cool off. I love Dalyan, it's a wonderful place and never fails to take my breath away, it's just stunning. I hope that we have the opportunity to come and visit Villa Elsie again. Thank you Allie & Dan for giving us the opportunity to relax, unwind and have the greatest stay with friends.

Fabulous villa

  • 5 of 5

Our family has just returned from a wonderful two weeks in Villa Elsie. The whole process of booking was very easy with great communication from Allie.

The villa is beautiful and very spacious – there was plenty of room for all of us (5 adults and 4 young children). It is very comfortable and well equipped, and also has a water cooler which is great bonus. The tv and dvd player were a welcome break for the children when the heat of the day got too much.

It is located in a peaceful location and the pool area had sunshine from early morning until early evening. It is only a short walk to the river path which passes many bars/hotels and restaurants on the way into town.

The pool is a decent size with a shallow area for younger children. The terrace area has plenty of sunbeds and there is a covered area with table and chairs. The traditional kosk was a nice place to chill out with a glass of wine/beer in the evening.

We bought bread, eggs, juice etc for breakfast on a daily basis from the small shop at the end of the road (about a 10 minute walk) and prices were very reasonable – the owners loved making a fuss of the one year old. The walk into the main part of town was about 20-25 minutes. On a few occasions we used a taxi to return to the villa and this cost between 12 and 15 TL, but that meant missing out on a cocktail or an Efes at the Okyanus restaurant overlooking the river.

We all would recommend a stay at this villa and we would definitely stay here again.

Wonderfully relaxing villa with gorgeous pool

  • 5 of 5

Wow, we love this villa.

This is the second year and we have already booked for next year.

All mod cons, air con in all rooms, lovely pool and a kosk to relax in when the sun is at its zenith. Lovely riverside walk to the town (10 minutes leisurely stroll) where restaurants abound. Can't wait till next year!
