Overview

Recommended Pool Beach Nearby Ideal for Kids

Eagle Heights is a charming, three-bedroom villa on the southwest coast of Turkey. You’ll love the modern, whitewashed interior, beautiful wooden ceilings and the amazing panoramic sea views. There are plenty of chances to make a splash too: in the private outdoor pool or at Akyaka or Cinar Beach, within a short drive of Eagle Heights. The villa’s vistas are one of the best in the area, especially at sunset.

Nestled between olive and pine trees, on the outskirts of sleepy Akyaka town, the villa is secluded and private and blends effortlessly into the natural surrounds (you’ll have to look closely to see that it’s even there). The villa incorporates both classic Turkish and cool contemporary elements, and effortlessly manages that hard-to-pull-off trick of being glamorous and comfortable at the same time. With quiet tranquillity, yet amenities a short 5km drive away, it’s a genuine destination stay.

Stepping inside, you’ll notice how the villa is flooded with beautiful, natural light with floor-to-ceiling windows and doors from the living room and master bedroom leading straight out onto the pool terrace. There’s an open-plan kitchen, living and dining room with two cushioned sofas, a dining table seating six and an island for relaxing and dining. The kitchen is also fully-equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine and oven for a hassle-free home-from-home experience.

The three bedrooms are simply stylish and have everything you need, including make-up tables, dressers and nightstands, alongside air conditioning for a comfortable holiday. The master has an en-suite bathroom, and there’s another shared bathroom off the lounge, so there won’t be any fights for the shower. Outside, the peaceful coastal-facing garden and pool area aren’t visible from the front, so you can sunbathe in the knowledge that you’re in complete privacy. If you need entertaining watch out for the eagles and other birds that glide the thermals above.

Find your perfect spot on a sun lounger, swim right up to the water’s edge to get more breath-taking views or dine al fresco while soaking up the serene ambience. If you’d like to go exploring, markets and restaurants are within a short walk. Eagle Heights is an excellent choice for families with children and those who want to discover the culture and natural beauty of this idyllic part of Turkey.

  • The villa is nestled into the hillside and is on a slight incline so it’s easier getting to the coast, restaurants and shops than it is getting back
  • There are other properties in the area, however the villa faces the coast and is surrounded by trees so it’s completely private

Eagle Heights is located in Akyaka, a small rural town in southwest Turkey. The villa is nestled into the hillside, is surrounded by trees and overlooks the coast. This is an area favoured by beekeepers as there's little polution, you will see the blue beehives scattered around the countryside. Although it feels like you’re a world away from civilisation, it’s still within a short drive of local restaurants, markets and the beach, and is only an hour-dive from vibrant Dalyan, if you’d like to explore more of this beautiful area.

Akyaka itself is best known for its natural surrounds. There’s a wetland conservation area where you can try your hand at spotting fish, otter and herons, alongside plenty of walking trails that take you through the pine tree-lined forest and along the Kadin Azmak River where local fisherman are reeling in their catch. For lunch, you can stop off at one of the fresh seafood restaurants along the river, follow the river to the harbour and sandy Akyaka Beach.

Akyaka Beach is popular because of its calm, crystal-clear waters that are perfect snorkelling and swimming. In the town, there’s a small market where you can pick up fresh produce, alongside a butcher, baker and coffee houses. You can wander the streets lined with classic Turkish Ottoman Ula Houses or head to a boutique shop for handmade items like rugs, shoes and clothes.

Just outside of Akyaka, you’ll find Cinar Beach – a secluded cove surrounded by forested mountains, with a small creek and a beach bar. For family-friendly day trips, you could jump on a boat from Akyaka to Cleopatra's Beach, Sedir island. You can swim there and also explore the Hellenic and Roman ruins, including an amphitheatre, where olive trees have grown through the stones.

From Akyaka you can take the dolmus (public bus) to Marmaris or Mugla, which has the largest market in the region (every Thursday) for a day trip drive to the ruined city of Ephesus, the travertine terraces of Pamukkale or the quaint village of Sirince.

Akyaka & Dalyan

Turkey is an eclectic mix of dramatic scenery, amazing food and a deep history.  A visit to Turkey almost always inspires comment about the hospitality, maybe because the Turkish people believe a visitor is a gift from God. A trip to Turkey will almost definitely inspire you to return. You’ll be following in the footsteps of many a famous person from ancient history.

The South West coast of Turkey offers the perfect climate for your holiday, boasting over 280 dry days a year and an average June temperature of 28C in Dalyan and Akyaka, with sea temperatures of 23 degrees Celsius. 

The Carian’s once ruled this coast and there are lots of signs of their existence, such as rock tombs and the ancient riverside city of Caunos that sits opposite Dalyan. An area surrounded by pine trees, which are believed by locals to clean the air and increase the oxygen levels. The area is favoured by beekeepers for honeymaking and you will see many of the traditional blue beehives, and a few bees, in the area.

Modern Dalyan is a small resort on the river’s edge. Tourists enjoy the small wooden boat trips chugging along to the Iztuzu beach, maybe stopping at one of the sulphur mud baths, for a somewhat rudimentary beauty treatment and some one-off photos for the holiday album. The river has a great view of the rock tombs and has much wildlife along the reedbeds. The Istuzu beach is where the endangered loggerhead turtles come to lay their eggs. The beach caught international interest in the 80’s when David Bellamy and fellow environmentalist stopped a hotel development. Today it’s a conservation area and at the far end of the beach, there is a turtle rescue centre you can visit.

Dalyan has lots of restaurants, bars and a selection of gift shops. Dalyan has a local market on a Saturday, which has an amazing selection of fruit and vegetables. You should take the opportunity to enjoy breakfast at the water’s edge in nearby Gokbel. Slightly further out is the village of Beyobasi, where you can enjoy a trout meal in a restaurant cooled by the fast running waters, just off of the main Dalaman-Akyaka road.

The Koycegiz lake is at the other end of the river. The small town of Koyceyiz is perched on the side of the lake. The small bazaar gives the idea Koycegiz was once more important than Dalyan, thus probably the best day to visit is Monday when the weekly market is in town. Try one of the restaurants on the edge of the lake for lunch. If you’ve driven, don’t forget to stop at one of the fruit stalls on the road side, plying a healthy mix of orange & pomegranate juice. The Sultaniye Hot Springs sit on the south-west shore the lake. The hot mud pools contain mineral waters that are rich in chloride, sodium, hydrogen sulphide and bromide. There are even rudimentary cabins that some braver souls come to stay & take the waters.

Akyaka sits where the Kadın Azmak river joins the sea. Enjoying a Turkish breakfast or fish lunch at one of the many restaurants it is difficult to imagine anything disturbing the peace. Ducks and geese jostle for bread, fish swim past and bright green reeds wave in the slow-moving water, fed by cooler waters from the mountains above. Favoured by local day trippers from nearby Bodrum and Denizli, who gather on Akyaka’s wide sandy beach with shallow water meaning you can go a way out and the water is only up to your waist.

In recent years, Akyaka has become Turkey’s centre for kitesurfing and you’ll see all the kites in the sky, above the beach on the head of the gulf. There are several schools so if you fancy a go. Contact them beforehand, so you can get booked in as it is particularly popular during the holidays and weekends.
Akyaka is a member of the cultural Cittaslow organisation, recognising its connection with tradition. The local architecture of wooden balconies and white walled houses with terracotta roof tiles, bow thanks to 70’s architect Nail Çakırhan. The coast up from here has lots of small bays where you can swim and sunbathe, just drive through the forest and along the coast road to find them. Akyaka has a local market on Wednesday, or visit the huge very Turkish market in Mugla, which is the administrative centre of the area. In recent years Mugla has expanded as it’s university has gained popularity, but the centre still shows architectural signs of its Italian occupation last century.

For Turks, breakfast is a key meal, and you see family groups enjoying a feast late morning. Other than the riverside restaurants who serve a hearty feast, go to Sakartepe, at the top  the mountain has the most amazing panoramic views. The area is surrounded by ine

From Akyaka, boat trips leave to popular Cleopatra Beach on Sedir Island. There, children of any age can go swimming or snorkelling and then explore the ancient city of Cedrae with the remnants of the city walls and overgrown ruins.

Reviews

  • Tranquility and Amazing View

    Posted by MS on 25/08/2019

    We've spent the first week pretty much without moving away from this beautiful villa, apart from a few shopping trips to Akyaka and surrounding markets. Why would we?
    The tranquility, amazing view, the pool and well equipped kitchen. It's all you really need to come down.
    We got more adventurous in the second week and we found a second home down at the Butik Hotel Beach. Don't look any further if you want a perfectly positioned beach with free sunbeds, solid food and the nicest service imaginable. Even on a busy day we were met with smiles and easily got our four chairs. The kids were treated like kings and queens.
    We will be back for sure...

  • Stunning!

    The villa was stunning. Absolutely gorgeous. Thank you

  • A Quiet Relaxing Getaway

    Posted by KK on 13/07/2019

    We have had a wonderful stay in this villa.It's an absolute hidden treasure. days lazing by the pool and nights stargazing, a relaxing holiday indeed (once we made it up the drive!).
    The town of Akyaka has allyou need in the Migros. The market on a Wednesday is mainly food but great to visit and see a little snippet of the Turkish way of life. We bought the most delicious baklava there.
    We brought an iPad and got some yoga classes on Youtube and did a morning stretch to the sun waking Akyaka up.
    If a quiet relaxing getaway is what you're after, congratulations you've found it here.

  • Fabulous

    Posted by AD M on 26/06/2019

    We’ve had a fabulous stay in Eagle Heights. Haven’t gotten tired of the lovely pool and amazing views. Consequently we haven’t explored the local area as much as we perhaps should have. We visited Akyaka Beach once but with this pool, view and settling it isn’t really worth bothering with.
    Had nice lunches in West Cafe and Cennet restaurants, the last two restaurants on the road that runs alongside the river as you leave town. We found Migros supermarket, which sold all the supplies we needed, including fresh milk.
    We will definitely be back!!

    Thank you for a lovely stay in this beautiful villa.
    The view is stunning and we never tire of looking out over the water and across the hills.
    My husband enjoyed the tranquility so much, I only persuaded him to go to the beach once.
    We had no problems at all during our stay but feel sure they would have been dealt with promptly and efficiently.
    We don't often say this but we will definitely look forward to coming back.
