Everything was just great

  • 5 of 5

This modern villa with superb furnishings is in a great position. The villa was very clean and the pool and garden were kept beautifully. It's close to town with such a good choice of bars and restaurants. We loved Dalyan with it's laid back vibe, but there's enough going on at night if you like things a bit more upbeat. This has been a fantastic holiday for our family and there is no doubt we'd love to return!

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

The whole process of booking was very easy with great communication from the owner, who was also very flexible around change overs.

The owner arranged transfers were prompt and efficient and on arrival the Villa was absolutely superb. Immaculately clean and beautifully presented inside, it really was a wonderful place to spend 2 weeks. The location is perfect, close to the town and the river but peaceful and scenic. The views from the Villa were breathtaking.

Overall it is a great spot to spend a holiday. Dalyan is a beautiful place and this Villa is the perfect place to stay. I would not hesitate to recommend a stay at this villa

A beautiful well equipped villa

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful villa in a fantastic location. The villa itself was very comfortable and modern very well equipped with everything you could possibly need even extra pillows and sheets were available to use. Outside the garden and pool area had sunshine from early morning until around 7 pm which was lovely but I would say that a couple of fixed umbrellas would have been a bonus as there was no shade if you wanted to lie on a sunbed around the pool. We were very impressed with the underneath dining and seating areas outside plenty of seating for us all and the water dispenser is a great idea. All round we would definately stay here again.

Great place fantastic people 5*

  • 5 of 5

We visited in July with 4 adults and 2 kids. The downstairs bedroom was great as my mother-in-law struggles with stairs. Just a short walk to the main town the atmosphere is great all the locals are really helpful and friendly. The air-conditioned rooms were fantastic. Loads of nice restaurants and takeaways nearby but if fancy a night in then the Bbq is a must, there is a butchers nearby which has a great selection. Can't wait for our next visit as we will most certainly be returning 😀򐀊

Villa Kelebek (Turkish word for Butterfly) is an absolutely beautiful, well built, luxurious property and very well equipped with all you could possibly need and more to enjoy your stay.

The carefully chosen modern furnishings throughout the villa make it a real home from home.

Towels are provided for pool use too which saves valuable space in your case and an abundance of acrylic cups and plates are available for safe use outside.

The water cooler sat on the terrace is a very welcome added bonus and something we have never seen in the many villas we have rented over the years, brilliant idea!

The pool is fabulous and was maintained by a polite and unobtrusive man early in the morning and the same with the garden maintenance lady.

The Kosk is a fabulous shady chill out space which we all loved.

Despite being so close to the river the area is just so peaceful and only actually has one immediate ‘neighbour’ on one side.

The location of the villa is just perfect, just a few minutes’ walk takes you to the river with lots of lovely restaurants along the way and only a ten minute stroll took you right into the centre of Dalyan with many more restaurants and bars, also Migros supermarket and various other market shops for all your requirements.....worth mentioning that do take the time to venture up side streets and don’t just stick to the main street in town as there are many really good restaurants that you would probably miss (just one for example is Cargi for the most delicious Pide )

Good, prompt communication from the owner throughout and very helpful agents on hand in Dalyan for peace of mind.

We all enjoyed a truly wonderful and memorable holiday at Villa Kelebek and would most definitely stay again next time we visit Dalyan.

Thank you Denise :)

Special interest holidays: There is an amazing range of bird habitats in the local area; from the reed beds north of the town to the Koycegiz Lake 25 minutes outside of Dalyan. With many species of interesting birds, from White Tailed Eagles to Red-rumped swallows, expert birders and amateurs alike would struggle not to have a great birding holiday.

"I saw 95 species which was a good haul given my relatively limited experience and time''

Cycling is also very good in this area with bicycle hire readily available and inexpensive.


Dalyan is best known for its lush greenery, beautiful winding river and Itzuzu beach, which is not only a natural wonder but has also won The Times Best Open Space Award in 2010. This is one of the few natural breeding grounds of the beautiful Carreta Carreta sea turtle. There are over 6km of golden sands with access by bus, car and boat. Travellers by bus will have an opportunity to visit the Turtle Rescue Centre. Snacks and drinks are available at the cafe's situated at both ends of the beach. There are also changing/toilet facilities at the beach.


The nearest airport is Dalaman which is a 25 minute drive away. Once in Dalyan car hire is not essential as we are so close to everything you could need. The town itself is quite small, and everything is within an easy walk of the villa.

Everything is within walking or cycling distance in Dalyan. The villa is within very easy reach of restaurants, bars and the gorgeous river.

Dalyan town itself is compact stretching only a mile in any direction from the centre, and is framed by a glorious backdrop of pine clad mountains in every direction. The flatness of town makes it a perfect place for walking with children or the elderly, and it's a delight to cycle around. For more active holidaymakers there are forests and hiking hills all within walking distance.

Dalyan is also distinguished by it's lack of package tourists though there are still plenty of bars and restaurants to cater for all tastes. There is a market on Saturday’s selling fresh local produce, clothing and tourist items.

The town has a bank, ATMs, a post office and a number of well stocked supermarkets centred around the town square. This is where you'll also find the Dolmus (bus) area for trips to surrounding attractions. Dalyan is on the riverside where you can access the numerous boat trips, including crossing the river to the Kaunos tombs and amphitheatre. The boats can also take you to the beach, or you might enjoy a moonlight cruise to the lake, crab fishing or bird watching. There are also hot springs and mud baths at the nearby Koycegiz lake.

Fethiye and Olu Deniz are a 50 minute drive away, with Marmaris being about a 75 minute drive. Both Marmaris and Fethiye offer ferry services to Rhodes.
