About Alison and Paul Osborn

Our names are Alison & Paul and we would like to thank you for your interest in our villa Zeytin Koru in Dalyan. We have lived and worked in the North of England since we married. We have two adult daughters and two Grandchildren and plenty of time to enjoy life both here and in Dalyan since we semi retired in 2009, thanks to our discovery of Dalyan.

Alison and Paul Osborn purchased this villa in 2005

Why Alison and Paul Osborn chose Dalyan

Zeytin Koru was built 2005 after many years of wonderful holidays in Dalyan. We came to Dalyan in 1998 for our wedding anniversary, having been enchanted by the picture of the river and the Rock Tombs in the brochure. We returned again in September the same year and since then we have not been able to stay away. One day in May 2004 a Dalyan friend came to tell us that a building plot, as closed as it is possible to the Tomb view had come available and that was that. We designed Zeytin Koru to echo the the magnificent splendor with large open balcony and colonial style columns. Our guests have agreed as the villa has been very popular with renters.

What makes this villa unique

Perfect for families and all age groups its location is with out doubt the biggest reason for such popularity. The pool is one of the largest in Dalyan at 60 square meters and is also unusual with the large shallow end for children and non swimmers. The villa offers the best of both worlds, semi rural location in large (not overlooked) mature walled garden, yet just over the road from the nearest supermarket and restaurant and a park with gym and play equipment to the rear. The walking is level with access to excursions on river, sea and lake within a few hundred yards.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Guest review submitted 01/09/11 Norfolk RE : Villa Zeytin Koru

My husband, daughter, and our two teenage grandchildren had a fabulous holiday. Everything we needed, and more, was waiting for us. The pool was much enjoyed by all the Family and the proximity to the supermarket, restaurants and the river was so unexpected, and so welcome. Unfortunately the same two weeks are already booked for next year.

Guest review submitted 19/06/ 2011South Yorks RE: Zeytin Koru is like a small hotel exclusive to your party in an ideal location with stunning views of the rock tombs and surrounding hills. Each of the 4 en suite bedrooms are situated so that they are completely private. Sitting on the balcony early morning and after dark was idyllic.. Zeytin Koru is wonderful, stay there. Dalyan is beautiful, go there!

Guest review submitted 01/09/11 Scotland RE : Villa Zeytin Koru,

The most awesome Villa in Dalyan.

  • 5 of 5

1st time visit to Turkey and we absolutely loved Dalyan, it was my first chance at my very own family holiday with my three sons, their partners and the grandchildren, the Villa Zeytin Koru made this the most enjoyable experience for us. Such a beautiful house, big enough that we didn't get under each others feet yet when we wanted to just all relax together the Villa is just perfect. Awesome pool and best location.

Excellent property well maintained and presented.

We would recommend this to anybody as it caters for young and old; we would not want to change anything. Information provided by the owners was detailed and thorough and their contact in Dalyan provided an excellent taxi service to and from the airport..
