Airbnb - Dalyan

Villa Apollon Panorama - Four nights
Villa Apollon Panorama is an Airbnb located about a 20-minute walk from Dalyan, Mugla region, Turkey, in a remote location nestled amongst the mountains.
This stay is excellent for large groups, considering the six bedrooms spread out over three floors and those wishing to chill out at the pool or explore the region.
Perfect for summer, you'll mainly hang outside, as the main lounge room would not accommodate everyone simultaneously. Don't miss listening to the call to prayer bouncing its way through the mountains.
The beautiful mountains surround you, and you are only a short 10-minute drive from Iztuzu beach, otherwise known as Turtle Beach, where the sea turtles nest each year and worth a visit to support DEKAMER, the turtle rehabilitation centre.
The kitchen is small, so it's more suitable for those that intend to eat out or use the BBQ - which Wayne took advantage of a couple of nights.
We were very impressed with the BBQ and made sure we used it for a few nights. Fantastic butchers in town, so be sure to stock up on your favourite meats. We found this neat little charcoal kit from Migros, which was super easy.
Some minor issues with the shower design can easily be fixed with a strip to stop the water from leaking into the bathroom. There is plenty of hot water and towels; the only issue is a lack of privacy, which will resolve once the garden is more established as this is a new property.
The wifi requires the router to be placed outside, and you'll be able to work then or download your favourite Netflix series, which is not ideal for digital nomads due to the slow connection. We do recommend having a local sim card for backup.
As it was the start of the season, the house needed a good deep clean, which would not be an issue in the high season due to turnover.
We even walked into town, a gentle 20-minute stroll through the quiet village life.
Murat, your host, is very friendly and welcoming; he will make sure your stay is comfortable and responsive.
