We booked Palm Tree Villa direct with the owners Paul and Sue after making an initial enquiry via Owners Direct (can be found through other websites but suggest talking to Paul direct). Paul was always on hand to answer any questions and provide us with some handy tips regarding the location and the accommodation. He also arranged the transfers from Dalaman Airport via ORUC Travel, this service was excellent and very reasonable.
This villa is fantastic...4 bedrooms/4 bathrooms, large kitchen/dining area downstairs and spacious lounge with balcony on the first floor. Air conditioning throughout. Well equipped with all of the mod cons to make it a home from home...with the difference being the wall to wall sunshine! Externally, the villa is set within substantial grounds and has a large swimming pool with adjoining Jacuzzi. The property is well maintained both internally and externally (swimming pool is maintained everyday).
Dalyan is a very friendly and welcoming destination with the main hub of shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants just a short 5 to 10 minute walk from Palm Tree Villa. Eating out is inexpensive but we tended to eat at the Villa, buying good quality meat from the butcher in Dalyan at very good prices. The supermarkets are cheap also. Either way, you will not have to spend a lot of money eating in or out in Dalyan.
There are plenty of things to see or do in and around Dalyan. We didn't venture far as the 3 younger members of our party did not want to leave their own swimming pool plus there was a Playstation on hand when it got too hot for them. We did head out to Iztuzu Beach on two occasions....once via the river taxi, the other by public bus. Yet again, very inexpensive. There are plenty of boat trips available from the village centre, I think you just need to shop around for the best deal albeit the next door neighbour does private boat trips (his details can be found at the Villa).
Fantastic holiday had by all with no faults whatsoever and will hopefully be returning in the near future.
