A wonderful stay
This was our first time to Turkey. We had a brilliant holiday. The villa was in a great location for walking to the river or into town. It was clean and tidy and extremely well equipped - it had everything we needed. There is a small shop very close by that sells all the top-up essentials you'll need. The pool and garden were very well maintained and the BBQ and Jacuzzi were a real bonus.
We were very pleasantly surprised as to how cheap everything was - from food/drink, excursions, restaurants and vehicle hire.
We'll definitely be heading back to Dalyan and would be very happy to hire this villa again.
I am so pleased you enjoyed the villa, and that you found it well equipped. Dalyan is a beautiful place and Turkey is certainly a considerably cheaper place to visit than Europe. I look forward to welcoming you again.
Fantastic Villa and pool, in a great location
Myself and some friends rented the villa in September 2017. The process was quick and efficient with any queries answered in detail and very promptly.
We had a fantastic stay - the perfect weather throughout the week meant we got to make use of the amazing pool (the pictures DON'T do it justice!) and dine outside on the large patio area. If cooking isn't for you, then there are a host of restaurants and bars within 5 minutes walk - close enough to get to easily, but far enough that there is no noise in the evening.
The VIlla is well equipped with all mod cons and amenities and the rooms and WC's were clean and spacious.
I'm hoping to go back in 2018 and would highly recommend this property.
So pleased you enjoyed your stay. I look forward to welcoming you and your friends again.
Fantastic villa with everything you need and a great location
We booked this villa since it seemed ideally located and had the space/facilities we wanted for my family and sisters family, totalling 9 people. Our first time in a villa after years of all-inclusive and I think we've been spoilt. It has everything you need; the space, quiet location, a pool which is maintained daily, every kitchen appliance and utensils you'll need, the cleanliness and also Wifi for the kids. The gardens also have high trees/bushes so you'll get the privacy which other villas in the area didn't seem to have.
Dalyan town is 5-10 mins walk and so easy to get to for more restaurants than you'll be able to eat at in 2 weeks. There is also a small shop at the end of the road which is 2 mins away for your daily bread. Lovely chap and the daily exchange of banter where he would try and sell you more bread than you needed, was always amusing. The owners have provided an information pack which people have added to over the years, which is really helpful for those new to the area. We stayed for 2 weeks, so there was a midweek clean which was also to a very high standard.
All in all, an amazing villa and location. Highly recommend it and we shall definitely be going back again.
Thank you for your detailed review. I am so pleased you and your family enjoyed your holiday and that you found the villa met your expectations.
Villa Jamara+Oruc agents+Dalyan=Perfection😎
Villa Jamara was a dream. From the minute we walked through the door it worked its magic. You can totally relax, whatever you need, or have forgotten - it's all there. Its like a 5 star hotel, but with such a homely feel. Our ages ranged from teens to 70 something's - and everyone was happy- no mean feat.
Oruc agents were amazing. Nothing was too much trouble, they were attentive, without being overpowering, and I cannot praise them enough.
Dalyan and its people are divine. Their friendliness, food, colour, scenery, river, wildlife, humour, service, sense of fun was infectious, and at times humbling.
It was very difficult to leave. We will definitely be back.
Perfect location. Luxurious Villa with great views
As last year the Villa was luxurious, very clean and everything in excellent order. Great location just 5 minutes walk from all the amenities at Dalyan. Nice to stay somewhere where you do not need a car. Huge choice of boat trips available from Dalyan and so many good restaurants to choose from.
Paradise on Earth!
My husband and I travelled with our 11 month old baby to Villa Jamara for a week. The place was spacious and clean when we arrived. The house is perfectly geared for babies and adults with everything you may need: travel cot, baby bath, food mixer, WIFI, AC, dishwasher, washing machine, bicycles and much more... We really enjoyed one of the most lovely private pools we've ever seen, with an spectacular view to the garden and the mountains in the back.
The beach can be reached by water taxi which takes about 30 minutes and is a wonderful trip in itself. The local dolmus (mini bus) takes about 20 minutes and is scenically beautiful. Both ways are inexpensive and I would recommend you try them both. It is 12km to cycle and hilly! The quayside and dolmus station are 5 minutes walk away. The lake and river can also be accessed from here (very beautifiul).
Dalaman airport is 30 minutes drive from the villa.
Airport transfers can be arranged. The cost for a return transfer for up to 4 people is £60 and £80 for up to 10 people
We have never found it necessary to hire a car but they are available nearby.
5 minutes walk to quayside, shops and restaurants.
20 minute walk to ancient city of Kaunos.
30 minutes Dalaman airport
75 minutes drive to Marmaris.
45 minutes drive to Fethiye.
3 hours drive to Ephesus.
Dalyan is in an environmentally protected area that combines stunning natural beauty with historical interest. The Dalyan River winds past ancient Rock Tombs and the ruined city of Kaunos, to the sea. The 30 minute river-boat ride takes you to Iztuzu beach which is ideal for swimming and sunbathing, It is here that the endangered Loggerhead Turtle (Caretta Caretta) lay their eggs. Apart from the beauty and tranquillity of this wonderful place, the hospitality and friendliness of the local people is a joy to experience. The cuisine is varied and caters for all tastes. There are many restaurants, bars and shops but do not expect many too discos and nightclubs (there are one or two!)
Other things to do include: mudbaths, cycling, diving, Turkish Baths, fishing, bird watching, Gentlemen, you must visit the local barber. There are many excursions available, the Gulet Cruise from Gocek is magical.
