Oaklands J2 Villa, Ovacik
The entrance door to the villa leads in to a large lounge/dining area which is light and airy. There are french doors leading on to a large shaded L Shaped terrace which overlooks the communal pool - great for alfresco dining or just relaxing in the shade. The kitchen is situated off the lounge area, and is bright and spacious with pine base and wall units and marble work tops. It comes complete with a hob and oven, large fridge freezer, microwave oven and washing machine. There is a door from the kitchen that leads on to the terrace. On this floor there is a separate WC and wash basin, and 2 double sofa beds.
From the ground floor a marble staircase leads to the 1st floor. There are 2 bedrooms upstairs, one double with an en-suite bathroom, and a twin bedded room. Both bedrooms have air-conditioning. balconies, and ample wardrobe and storage cabinets. There is also a main bathroom on this level. Both bathrooms are wet rooms.
There is an ironing board, iron, clothes airer, hairdryer and portable barbecue all for use. Cots and high-chairs are available to rent - this can be arranged by the owner.
Oaklands is a small complex consisting of 16 villas, 20 apartments, 2 swimming pools and a small bar stocking some essential supplies. One of the pools has a childrens section. The complex is in the village of Ovacik - between the towns of Fethiye and Hisaronu. Hisaronu is 20 minutes walk away, Fethiye is 20 minutes by bus.
There is a bar/cafe on the complex which also stocks essential supplies. Erhan or his staff will cook most snacks there, and we can also recommend the barbecue at the bar if you fancy a quiet night in without cooking yourself! If you have any problems at all during your stay Erhan will be able to assist you.
Out and About
The main road running between Fethiye and Oludeniz is about a 10 minute walk away, with buses (known as “Dolmus”) to either town taking approx. 20 minutes and costing approximately £1 per person.
Hisaronu is the nearest town which is approx. 20 minutes walk. It is a buzzing town and you will find numerous shops, bars, restaurants and nightclubs there. There are also plenty of bars, restaurants and shops in the much quieter Ovacik.
The Nicholas Group, from whom we bought our property, have their own private beach at Olu Deniz and provide a complimentary daily bus service departing at around 10am and returning at approx. 4.30pm. The journey takes about 20 minutes. Their beach has a bar and restaurant, is fairly small, safe and sandy with pedalos etc. Charges for sun beds and parasols are payable locally. On the way to the private beach you will drive along the lagoon past the public beach which is much larger and shingle. This can be reached by dolmus. Patara and Dalyan are both long sandy beaches, nesting areas for turtles - each about 1 hour away from our villa by either jeep safari or private car/jeep hire.
