We rented this villa for 3 months from June to September 2011. There were 8 of us - 4 children ranging from the age of 8 months to 10 years - and 4 grown-ups. Villa is spacious - 4 bedrooms, 3 toilets, 2 bathrooms, dining room and kitchen on the ground floor with veranda, which is very convenient for breakfast and dinner, balconies and roof veranda for sun bathing (also very practical for drying things after washing). The villa is fully equipped with all necessary things.
The villa complex is guarded during nighttime. The holiday was like a paradise for children - 2 swimming pools are 10 meters away (the pools were cleaned every night) with the small one for children under 5, the sea is less then 100 steps away, its a bay and the water is warm, clean and shallow for 50 meters, no jelly-fish, the beach is sandy and every morning at 7 AM is cleaned by the community staff, the weather is stable 32C at the daytime and 20-22C at the nighttime. The villa complex is situated at the end of the village (USLU is the name). Its actually not a village but a construction site, which was build about 15-20 years ago. It consists primarily of country houses, which Turkish people visit during the summer. Very few people live there all the year and not many of these houses are rented out. That was the conclusion from our experience at the beach. No Russians at all, my wife met only one woman speaking Russian who married a Turk 20 years ago. Fruits and vegetables are very good, fresh and cheap - 1-2 EUR/kg. One small shop is 100 meters away from the villa (they even deliver drinking water to the villa) and another 3-5 shops and cafes are 250-300 meters. USLU village is between DIDIM (5 miles) and AKBUK (2 miles), so on arrival one should name it to the driver as the postal address makes no sense in this area. In AKBUK theres a European style supermarket and many shops and cafes. In DIDIM (which is a bigger town) there are 2 or 3 supermarkets, banks, ATM machines and so on. Part of DIDIM is known as ALTINKUM, which is a kind of fashionable resort. There you can hear many languages, visit fine restaurants on the sea-front and Luna-park for children. Public transportation to AKBUK and DIDIM is by mini buses but, of course, with car its much better.
