About Lynda & Steve

I live in Cardiff, S.Wales with my wife Lynda. I retired in 2005 having completed 30 years service as a police officer.

On my retirement, Lynda and myself holidayed in Ovacik, Turkey and fell in love with the country and lifestyle, which resulted in us buying our holiday villa. We like to spend as much time as possible at the villa but are somewhat limited as my wife is still working. We now have numerous friends in the area.

Lynda & Steve purchased this villa in 2005

Why Lynda & Steve chose Fethiye

Holidayed in the area and fell instantly in love with, the people, the cuisine and the relaxed lifestyle.

There are a lot of activities locally including boat trips, paragliding, quad biking, jeep safaris,horse riding etc. There are a number of culture and historic sites in the area.

What makes this villa unique

peace and tranquility, with stunning scenery but within a short walking distance of plenty of shops and restaurants. A short dolmus (local bus service) ride away from the world renowned Oludeniz beach and blue lagoon.

The villa has its own swimming pool for those hot and sunny days and if respite from the sun is required you can relax on the shaded terrace with the cooling evening breeze from the surrounding Babadeg mountain, whilst enjoying a BBQ and a refreshing bottle of local wine.

Lovely Villa, well equipped, great location

  • 4 of 5

The villa was in a great location, peaceful and relaxing in the day but near enough to walk to the restaurants with ease in the evening.

Great additions of wi-fi and the water machine serving lovely chilled water were a hit with everyone.

Would definitely recommend. Great to get away from it all without being remote.

Lovely villa perfect for our 2 families

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we first enquired about the villa everything was just so easy. The communication with the owners Lynda and Steve was fantastic, any query we had was answered very quickly and very informative. We are 2 families consisting of 4 adults and 3 teenage girls. (14,15 & 17) The villa itself was the perfect layout with 2 bedrooms and a bathroom on the ground floor which the girls had and felt like they had their own private space, lounge and kitchen on the middle and 2 more bedrooms and 2 bathrooms top floor both with balconies. This suited us very well. The pool was a lovely size and also the garden was lovely and kept well. Sun beds for all! The terrace was also lovely. The view was amazing, mountains all around and the neighbours very friendly. The local restaurants and bars and shops were only a short walk away, 5 mins and with buses very regular and taxis at the push of a button it couldn't have been easier to travel to the other local towns. My family have stayed in Olu Deniz before a few times so it was nice to stay somewhere different, the other family with us have never been to Turkey before and have absolutely fallen in love with the place! We used the restaurant 'Friar Tucks' many times the staff are so friendly and helpful, offering to give you lifts back or any help you may need. The local supermarket even gave us a lift back with our shopping! It is very cheap to eat out, I would say about £10 per head including drinks. Breakfast £2.50 You can jump on a bus (dolmus) to Olu Deniz for 3.75 lira which is about 80p and only takes about 10 minutes, or a taxi is 25-35 lira which is about £5-7 there you can visit the famous blue lagoon beach which is beautiful. Some of our party also did paragliding which they said was amazing, I stood on the beach and watched! Overall just a little touch of what we experienced, and we are planning to go back already. I highly recommend this villa, wish I was still there. Thank you Lynda and Steve for sharing your villa. 2 very happy families

Well appointed spacious property with easy access to Shops restaurants and local transport

  • 5 of 5

Lovely spacious clean and tidy property with pretty much everything available you could think of or require. The kitchen was well equiped with decent pans, utensils and crockery including a 19 litre water (industrial type) chiller which was perfect, and with a phone call, water was delivered and replaced within 15- 20 minute no lugging back from the shops. The pool is deceiving and bigger than the picture suggests and is fine for a swim or just cooling off with a deep and shallow end to suit all . The phone was also handy for takeaways booking trips etc , and with internet connection meant the boys could keep up with friends (albeit on holiday)? And also connect for films if required late evening. Ideally peaceful 3 story property , backing onto an olive grove and with lovely mountain views , friendly neighbours and all located only a few minutes walk from the Dolmas (local (bus) and only 5 mins max from local shops / restaurants.

Ideal for one or two families. Or friends sharing We would have no hesitation in returning.

Lovely villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This was the fourth villa we have rented in Ovacik over the past six years, and our favourite so far. We would definitely choose villa Lynste again and hope to be coming back next year. we love the area and found the villa to be in a perfect setting for us, nice and peaceful but still really convenient for transport, restaurants and shops.

Wonderful holiday - home from home

  • 5 of 5

Villa Lynste is just fantastic, beautiful villa inside and out, private and so very spacious, perfect sized pool with a deep side and a shallow side for our children, equipped with everything you could possibly need for a self catering stay. Perfectly central location, 5-10 in walk into Ovacik centre and approx a 15 min drive to Fethiye, Hisaronu and Olu Deniz.

Lynda was nothing but helpful from the very first enquiry I sent right through to arriving back in the UK.

I have already recommended to family for their next holiday, and personally I would return in a flash.

Thanks again Lynda.
