About the Property
5 Bedrooms 6 Bathrooms, Interior Designed, Sensational Views, 2 Pools, Gardens.
The highlight of the property is undoubtedly the outdoor living spaces. The fragrant flowers of Orange trees and a collection of exotic Palms fill the lovingly-maintained garden which is designed to provide numerous, tranquil seating areas and play spaces for children. The pool area is a sun basked focal point – a Whirlpool seating 10 with a gentle water-fall that cascades into the main pool. A further, sun-set facing, landscaped terrace complete with Weber Gas Barbecue presents the perfect space for an ‘al fresco’ lifestyle.
Villa Babylon is both contemporary and stylish, offering true luxury, real comfort, enhanced security, great service, and wonderful, complimentary amenities, all just moments from Turkey's most famous beach and lagoon.
UNIQUE BENEFITS of staying at Villa Babylon;

Two Master Suites - Each on separate floors for added privacy, individually designed, featuring sitting areas & spa-inspired, marble bathrooms stocked with complimentary Organic toiletries.
All rooms feature top quality, feather bed mattresses , bed linen and blackout curtains.

To reduce our carbon footprint, 6 Solar Panels help heat the water in Summer. High speed Wifi, Office Supplies - iPad & Wireless Printer also supplied.

POOL HEATING - The Pool and Massage Pool are tiled with Emerald Crystal Glass reputed to have healing properties and can be heated to 45C. A heated pool is a rarity in Turkey and important to consider when comparing villas, indeed, many villas have pool heating systems designed only to remove the 'chill' not heat the water. Pool Heating is charged at cost and depends on the time of year.
QUALITY; The villa has been totally refitted to European standards (including the electricty supply which is industrial strength) with marble finishes in almost every room and premium furnishings and fittings.

Additionally, the villa has two Key Operated Safes and Double off-street Secure Parking.
SERVICE - Villa Babylon is professionally run and offers outstanding service - No detail is too small, no request too large.

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: I live in Brazil and try to visit the wonderful Olu Deniz area as often as I can. I qualified in both Hotel Management & Graphic Design and having spent years managing five star, boutique hotels, am inherently in tune with the needs of international guests and take great pleasure in providing a beautiful place to stay. I manage Villa Babylon passionately and professionally and go to great lengths to ensure your stay is the very best. I am happy to work around specific requests and offer a full online 'Concierge Service' for any special occasions. Your holiday is of the utmost importance to me and I very much look forward to welcoming you.
Why the Owner Chose Ovacık, Fethiye, Turkey:
Guests often wonder what Olu Deniz offers in comparison to other coastal resorts and the simple answer is one of the World’s best beaches and a much wider choice of things to do. It is a family-friendly holiday resort with several amazing beaches, paragliding & water sports, yachting, ancient ruins and has both authentic rural villages and tourist villages. Best of all, it is within easy reach, just under an hour from Dalaman International airport and 15 minutes from Fethiye, a bustling market town and marina which hosts many cultural events. Both The Blue Lagoon, (Turkey's most photographed beach) and The Lycian Way (voted among the Top 10 Walks of the World) are just five minutes away. There are a thousand things to do in Olu Deniz or nothing at all, either way Villa Babylon has it covered. I chose Villa Babylon for its location; a small mountainside community made up of villas and small Turkish farms, yet within a few minutes walk of a Beach Shuttle Bus stop. With mountains towering behind and super views to the front, all day sunshine and mature gardens, it is the perfect setting. I redesigned the house and interiors in a welcoming, modern style with cooling white backdrops and colourful fabrics, funky furniture mixed with antiques to create a unique, contemporary, Turkish environment. If space, style & luxurious marble finishes are what you are looking for, then this is the place for you. My aim is to provide the best villa experience in Olu Deniz.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
LOCATION - Olu Deniz stretches for miles inland but Villa Babylon is nearest the beach, just a 5 minute walk to the beach shuttle stop. Walk to local restaurants/shops or taxis are easy to call. SPACE - A total of 5 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms and a Guest Cloak Room. All rooms feature top quality, feather bed mattresses , linen and blackout curtains. There are multiple Dining and Lounging areas.

COMPLIMENTARY AMENITIES; Wine, Tea, Coffee, Filtered Water & Ice, Stocked Kitchen, Personalised Luxury Welcome Hamper, Farmers Market Fruits & Vegetables, Afternoon Tea and Mini Bar with Drinks & Snacks. TECHNOLOGY - Home Cinema with Minibar - 70' screen and 3D surround sound system, Apple TV, DVD, Playstation. Airplay Sound Bar, State of the art central heating, hot water and pool heating systems. High speed Wifi, Home Office - Laptop & Printer. FAMILY FRIENDLY; Cot, Highchair, Stair Guards and a selection of games & toys provided. Child friendly Garden, all on one level. QUALITY; A fully stocked Gourmet Kitchen features a 7m countertop and top of the range, oversized, US appliances including double ovens and double fridge - catering for large family groups is easy. A large, stone-paved BBQ terrace complete with a gas Weber Barbecue is located just off the kitchen. SECURITY - Alarm & CCTV Systems. 2.5m Double Perimeter Walls and gates provide extra peace of mind. Double off road car park. Villa Babylon enjoys a 5 star Home Away rating and is continually renovated and improved for each season. I believe these features are why other guests have described Villa Babylon as "simply perfect".
