Overview

About the property

Private pool, restaurant within 2 minutes walk, peace and quiet

Words cannot do justice to the superb position of this villa, which is located in the very secluded and private Akkaya valley overlooking a beautiful lake, with pine forested mountains rising steeply around it. Access is easy to restaurants in the Dalaman area (only 15 mins drive), or in the international yachting centre of Gocek (only 20 mins drive through a new tunnel). Good beaches are only 20 -30 mins drive away. Main attractions at the villa are the complete peace and quiet in this beautiful Akkaya valley, where there are opportunities for many activities, including sailing on the nearby lake, or on the sea from Gocek, which has become a fashionable and very popular yachting centre. Other activities may include fishing, horse riding, rafting, walking, bird watching, or simply relaxing and listening to the croaking of frogs in the adjacent stream. The private 40 sq metre swimming pool in front of the villa is an unusual shape as it has been moulded around two huge rocks in front.

Dalaman is a small, mainly agricultural town, unspoiled by mass tourism, though it now has a modern international airport. Whilst there may be limited touristic attractions in the town itself, it is a very natural Turkish farming community, and does have good shops, cafes and restaurants, which are improving all the time as the area has been designated for touristic development by the government. Nearby Gocek is a very fashionable yachting centre.

Akkaya Valley has been developed as a hydro-electric project, with several dams along the river, forming several turquoise lakes which are attractively fringed with pink oleander bushes. The valley is being developed in a very sympathetic manner by local contractor Curbanoglu, constructing properties of a high standard. There are several housing developments being constructed in the valley which overlook the turquoise lakes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Whiterock delivers everything it promises and more. It is truly a home from home set in the lush countryside of the Akkaya valley which though less than 30 minutes from Dalaman airport provides a gorgeous, quiet mountain valley location with excellent views

Whiterock is generously furnished and in excellent general condition. All services (inc.A/C) work very efficiently, though Turkish power supply can be interrupted from time to time at peak periods.

The terraces and pool are spectacular and do take a walk along the footpath to the Akkaya Restaurant where the food is excellent, reasonable and the service friendly and efficient.

The Villa in the forest and mountains

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in White Rock Villa 5 between August 11th and 23rd 2016 and had a lovely time. The villa is nice and clean. Pool man and gardening is looking after the property everyday. Also White Rock Villa 5 has a great kitchen equipment, nice furnishing, fantastic mountain view, fabulous balconies in the first and second floor for relaxing forest view. Private pool is not big but nice and clean in the forest.

Only problem is you need a car as the villa is far away from the shops and restaurants. The road is not good! However it is not possible to drive, even though we had a quite enjoyable trips on this of off road. Forest and mountain views helps you to forget off road issue.

We suggest White Rock Villa 5 every one who likes quite and relaxing holidays in the forest between the lovely mountains.

Owner's Response: I am not quite sure what Nilgun is trying to say about the road. At the time of her visit the road was in course of being widened and resurfaced. Not sure either about the comment about off road driving. This is not recommended! When all resurfacing work ha been completed the road to the villas will be much improved.

Located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, opportunities for bird watching amongst the reed beds of Koycegiz Lake, visiting wonderful open air markets in Dalaman, Fethiye, Koycegiz and Dalyan. Swimming at Saragerme and Iztuzu beaches - the latter is famous as a breeding ground for the Caretta-Caretta turtles, and is off limits to people at night. Archaeology at historical sites of Kaunos (30 mins drive) and Ephesus (3 hours drive away) is fascinating. Dining along the riverside at Dalyan facing the floodlit Lycian tombs of ancient Kaunos is a magical experience. The famous Oludeniz Lagoon about an hour's drive away. A golf course is being constructed at Saragerme (completion expected sometime in 2012). The spectacular Sarsala Cove is only about 30 mins away.
