I stayed at this villa with my husband, daughter, son-in-law and 10 month old granddaugher. This was our 1st villa holiday and and our 1st holiday abroad with our granddaugher, so we were a little apprensive as we have always booked package holidays, our fears were unwarranted. We had the most relaxing holiday ever. With the help of Mike who owns the villa our holiday went brilliantly. From first booking on the Villarenters site, to Mike emailing us back and forth with any questions we had and to Fehmi who did the transfers this made our holiday go without any problems at all. I would not hesitate to use Villarenters or to book this beautiful Villa again. The villa is set amongst the most beautiful scenery and so peaceful. You are far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Hisaronu, Olu Deniz & Fethiye but close enough if you want this. I would advise using the dolmus as the taxis can be a bit expensive. There is a local supermarket who delivers your groceries directly to your door for free and sells everything you could possible need. Jackie who looks after the villas was fantastic and would pop in from time to time to make sure we were all ok. It was good to know that there was someone close by to help if we needed it (not that we ever did!). We hired a travel cot from Jackie and there was a highchair in the villa. Mike even took a blender over for us for our granddaughter (you dont get that service with Thomas Cook!). The kitchen was very well stocked and had every appliance you could want and more. Mike and Ann have really thought of everything. I could go on and on about how fantastic the villa is but all I am going to say is if you are reading this then dont hesitate to book this villa, you will really not be disappointed! Many thanks Mike and Ann, you have a wonderful villa. x

The villa was excellent, very quiet and out away from the crowds, but only a few minutes drive from Hisaranu, Olu Deniz and Fehetiye.
Close to lots of good restaurants.
A nice touch was the comment book where people left reviews of the same so we knew where to go. We were unlucky to experience the worst rain for three years. The games and DVDs were welcomne during the thunderstorms! Jackie was very helpful, especially when the weather was torrential rain. Her excellent directions meant we found all places we wanted to quickly!
Thanks to Mike and Anne for all their helpful advice before we went and for asking how our stay was so soon after. A great place to stay.

We all had a lovely time at Araxa 4 and would certainly recommend this Villa an ideal holiday venue for all. With its own pool and all the amenties you could wish for, quietly situated overlooking the forest.
The local area offered a great choice of bars and restaurants and we made use of sevceral of the trips and excursions available.
We would love to return and will be recommending this Villa to all our friends.

Review submitted by Laura from Kent (Submitted: 8 Mar 2011)
Thank you so much to Mike & Ann for having such a wonderful Villa - it is certainly home from home & there is nothing that you could want or wish for whilst staying there. We spent many an evening on the verandhas having had a barbeque or two.
Needless to say that we would definitely recommend this Villa to all our friends and family and look forward to coming back myself.
Mike & Ann have really put a lot of care into making the hliday as easy going & relaxing as possible from everything in the kitchen, to the games & DVD collection.
It was also fab knowing that Jackie was nearby if needed & she was always popping in to the Villa to make sure that we were all OK and if we needed anything. We knew she would be approachable and was a great help with queries and advice.
Lastly it was great to see that the pictures on the internet were the same in real life - in fact the pictures do not do it justice.
All in all a fab & relaxing holiday, peaceful Villa & we will definitely come back.

We really enjoyed our first stay in Turkey made all the pleasurable by your lovely Villa - we will be back without doubt.
We all agreed that you have arranged a great Villa with some lovely touches, everything works, the security people have been great and Jackie very helpful.
Review submitted by Sharon from BECCLES (Submitted: 30 Sep 2010)
This was a truly wonderful holiday right from the outset. Stunning villa in a peaceful location, which was just far enough to remain tranquil, but close enough to get about if you wanted more action.
We were well looked after from the minute we arrived and everyone was so friendly and welcoming, especially Jackie who couldnt do enough for you.
The pool was spotless and my daughter spent many a happy hour splashing about. We will definately look to book again next year.
Review submitted by Lee from Derby (Submitted: 17 Sep 2010)
when we arrived at the villa we couldnt believe how beautiful it was, even tho we had seen pictures of it they really didnt do it justice. the location is so peaceful and very private set in the most beautiful surroundings. the pool was such a generous size and always kept very clean by the maintenance people. the villa was very spacious and every home comfort had been carefully thought about making our stay there wonderful. we certainly will be returning ourselves and have already recomended it to others. thanks for a great holiday Lee and Marie from Derby

We had a lovely week in this amazing Villa, with stunning weather and the pool was a god-send.
Jackie is very helpful in enabling you to make the most of the area, especially her restaurant recommendations.
All in all a holiday to remember

Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful Villa - the pool was fantastic. There had been a lot of thought put into making our stay at Araxa 4 as pleasurable and as stress free as possible.
We would definitely recommend it to our friends & family and would love to return again.
We found everyone very friendly and helpful.
Review submitted by Lizabeth from London (Submitted: 17 Aug 2010)
Excellent value for money the property was decorated and fitted out to a very high standerd, the welcome pack was amazing. Jackie was very helpful for the stay and recomending restaurants to us. We would and definatly have already been recommending this property to others.
We would recommend having a car, this did allow more freedom, although so many restaurnts did pick-up services if you are not planning on going out during the day then this may not be necessary.
One slight comment is the lack of privacy regarding the gardeners who came every day for at least an hour in packs of 3 and the security guard who comes by every hour during the night if you sit outside without any word of warning. If this could be resolved this would indeed be the perfect holiday! We had a lovely time!

Great location, great facilities, we all had a lovely time.
Review submitted by Carol from Pontypridd (Submitted: 19 Jul 2010)
We all agreed that we had the most fantastic holiday, it was exactly what we wanted, lots of peace and quiet.
The villa was lovely, we felt really spoilt, coming back after a day out and having our own pool and sunbeds waiting for us.........heaven.
The facilities at the villa were excellent and catered for all our needs and made us feel really at home.
Jackie was a gem, popping in to see if we were ok and if we needed anything. and Vali and the security guy were always close at hand.
We enjoyed ourselves so much that we are going to book for next year
Review submitted by ANDREA from PORTSMOUTH (Submitted: 12 Jul 2010)
the araxa 4 villa was excellent. it looked better in real life than the pictures. the gates on the veranda meant my 1 year old could crawl around safely away from the pool and the sun. my 2 and half year old loved the pool...it was warm enough for both kids - the surrounding area is so peaceful...put some honey out to destract the bees in the evening if you are eating...a minor irritation! the 3 tortoise in the garden kept the kids entertained and the generous area surrounding the pool and villa meant my son had freedom to wander!! it took me 25 mins to jog to the town..we would hire a car next time to get out without the expense of a taxi...buses are cheaper but not easy with two buggies and 2 kids! i thinks we have been spoilt with the luxury this villa gave us..great value for money...i would definately return with my family..the staff on site where attentive and mike and ann where a phone call away had they not been. fantastic experience and one of our best holidays - which is harder now with 2 young kids.

a lovely villa in an exquisite location.The exttra towels for the beach & the mobile phone were especially useful. Would have no hesitation recommending this villa for a perfect holiday
Review submitted by Mel and Carol from Huddersfield (Submitted: 14 Oct 2009)
We stayed the last two weeks of September 2009 and had a fantastic time. The property was quiet, superbly equipped and the pool and sunbathing area was terrific. The surroundings were very relaxing and Araxa 4 was everything and more than we had hoped for. It was easy to walk to the friendly local restaurants and bars and we particularly enjoyed the barbeque cooking at the Serdar - very cheap - and the famly atmosphere at the Teras Restaurant. Using the local transport could not have been easier, use of a mobile for local calls to taxis was a great help, and exploring locally made it a holiday to remember. We have already recommended Araxa 4 to a number of friends.
Review submitted by Paul from Southampton (Submitted: 24 Sep 2009)
We stayed at Araxa 4 for two weeks at the start of September 2009. We were expecting the villa to be nice from the pictures on the web site, however when we arrived we found it to be even better than expected. All we needed for our holiday was there and we had a great time. The location makes for a very relaxing and peaceful break. The only real noise were the crickets in the forest. At the end of the two weeks we were sad to have to leave. Mike and Ann the owners were very helpful and answered all queries very promptly. We would definitely stay at Araxa 4 again.
Review submitted by Maureen from Merseyside (Submitted: 12 Jan 2009)
Perfect location, very peaceful yet within 10 minutes of all amenities.
The villa was extremely well equipped supplying the towels for use around the pool and beach together with hairdryers in every bedroom and a mobile phone to use for local calls especially to call Ayhan the friendly local taxi driver who was never more than 5 minutes away. Extras like these are not normally provided.
Our first time in Turkey and we could not fault the country nor its friendly people we hope to return.
Review submitted by Mark from Coventry (Submitted: 12 Jan 2009)
This was our second visit to Araxa 4 and again the Villa was fantastic - the children loved the tortoises in the garden.
Thank you for a great time !
Review submitted by Siobhan from London (Submitted: 26 Aug 2008)
Set in a sleepy beautiful pine forest rests the splendid Araxa 4. Complete with all ones home creature comforts , with views to die for.
Waking up to the peaceful humming crickets, and the beautiful fresh pine scent, one feels that this could perhaps be paradise, or life after death, if you have been a good person.
One immediately feels amazing and ready for that well earned break.
Our children were so so happy to have their own pool, to jump into whenevr they felt like it.We relaxed everyday and barbequed at night. This is what I call a perfect holiday for everyone and anyone. Everything one needs is close by, and there is a definate sense of security in the villa with its 24 hour security guards watch. we are very thankfull to the owners Mike and Anne, and would strongly recommend it to anyone looking for a break in Turkey.

The villa was fantastic - exceeded all our expectations!
We had a great week and the weather was baking. Everything you could possibly need for a relaxing holiday is provided, down to the (extremely) helpful info pack.
We will definately be booking again next year.
P.S. The pool was brilliant!
Many thanks for a great holiday,
Mark and Millie.
Review submitted by JAY from HUDDERSFIELD (Submitted: 26 Sep 2007)
We have just arrived back from an amazing holiday staying at the araxa 4 villa.
I would personally rate this a 5 star quality rating villa, it far exceeded our expectation.
Its location met all our needs as a family with a newborn and 9 year old.
During the day we would relax by the pool set in the back drop of the pine tree covered mountain totally serene and tranquil, completely relaxing.
On an evening we would go into the next town of hisaronu 5 min in taxi.
We had the use of the mobile which had the taxi no already in ayhan the taxi driver would be with you within 5 min of calling.
I cant brag enough of how amazing the villa was.
I will defenately look to go back next year......
thanks for a fantastic holiday mike and ann.
Review submitted by Steve & Kate from Swindon (Submitted: 6 Sep 2007)
An excellent stay at Araxa 4.
From the moment we were collected from the airport to the moment we arrived back at the airport, our stay was wonderful.
Villa provided a manual/guide to help you in choosing the best places to eat and activities to try, so its worth looking at.
It was hot ..... 48oC some days, BUT the air con, the breeze from the mountain and the fresh, cool, private swimming pool wouldn't put us off coming back.
The food in THE SUNTRAP and DRAGONARA (Hisaronu) served fresh foods of all kinds and are very welcoming!
The villa exceeded our expectations and we are definitly coming back!!
Review submitted by Diana from Gosport Hampshire (Submitted: 5 Jul 2007)
This was our first visit to Turkey and we arrived in the middle of a heatwave, the wonderfull villa and its great air con was a god-send in the terrific heat.
The villa is modern bright and clean, it caters for your every need and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxed holiday.
Thank you Mike and Anne we had a wonderful holiday and your villa is outstanding.
Review submitted by Tony and Daniella from Wallington (Submitted: 30 Jun 2007)
The villa was beautiful and very spacious. We had a very relaxing week, the complex where the villa is situated is very peaceful and it made a nice change from staying in a noisy hotel. It was so lovely to have the swimming pool all to ourselves. Upon arrival at the villa there was a welcome pack providing some essentials such as t-bags,milk,bread and cheese which was greatly appreciated after a long day of travelling. The property is a 10 minute walk to the local shops where you can stock up on your groceries. We took the dolmus bus into Hisaronu which is a 5minute drive and only cost 50p each, we enjoyed eating out at the many different restaurants on offer. The bus also runs to Olu Deniz or Fethiye. The villa offers the best of both worlds,a relaxing lazy holiday with the option of days out and nightlife all close by. Overall we had a brilliant time and would definitely recommend it. Thanks.
Review submitted by Layan from LEEDS (Submitted: 21 Jun 2007)
Just had an excellent Holiday in Turkey. The Villa is located conveniently between Fethiye and Hisaronu, just 200 meteres from the main road. We never had to wait more than 2 minutes for a local Dolmus to take us either way. The complex is very secluded with beautiful pine forest and mountain surroundings. There is on site maintenance and security (not that you need it).
The villa is finished to such a high standard with beautiful polished marble floors, generous room sizes, airconditioning throughout, and useful little touches to make the holiday even better. The pictures do not do it justice.
We were met with a representative the morning after we arrived, given advice and contact details. You do feel well looked after. Ann and Mike are easily contactable, should anything go wrong.
I would definitely recommend this villa for large families and couples alike.
Review submitted by Reina from Holland (Submitted: 11 Feb 2007)
We had a wonderful time! The house was beautyful and every day we enjoyed
the luxury of our own swimmingpool, dishwasher, airco, washing
machine... you name it... everything.
We really had a nice time and we would like to thank you for taking care like you did (the useful information file, the text
messages, the supplies for the dishwasher etc.).

We had a great time. It was good to have our own pool and the Villa was fab. Everybody was really friendly and helpful.
A great two weekd, we were sorry to leave. Back again next year.
Review submitted by Jane & Bill from London (Submitted: 23 Oct 2006)
When we arrived at the Airport we were met by a very friendly driver who took us to the Villa. When we arrived we were delighted with what we saw. The Villa is of exceptional quality and the information provided by the owners was just as good. It saved us hours of searching for the best restaurants etc and even told us which side of the road to stand to get the bus into town. We enjoyed an excellent stay in Turkey and the local beaches and shops are great. The lcoation of the Villa is good and is only a 5 minute ride to most of the shops. We will definitely be telling our friends about it and we are already planning when we can visit again. Book this Villa and you will NOT be disappointed. Everything was perfect. TOP QUALITY.

I have just returned from my holiday in Turkey with my mother, sister and her fiancee.
We were delighted with the location of this villa and the support offered to us during our stay. It is set in woodland in the mountains. An idyllic setting.
The villa offered all you could expect by way of mod cons and comfort. It is also very peaceful but handily placed for buses into Hisaronu and Fethiye, the taxi service was also excellent if we were feeling lazy!
We would definitely recommend it and look forward to staying there again.
Review submitted by Kate & Joc from Bath (Submitted: 24 Sep 2006)
We have just returned from a week at this Villa and were very pleased with everything about it.
This was our second visit to the area and this was a lovely quiet location yet easy to get to Hisaronu & Fethiye for the shops and restaurants.
The Villa was very well equipped with everything you could need for a comfortable stay. All the team looking after the Villa were very friendly and helpful with nothing too much trouble.
Thank you for our stay ... we will be booking again next year !
Review submitted by David & Sharon from Oxford (Submitted: 14 Sep 2006)
The villa is idyllic and set in a lovely location.
A lot of things are provided to ensure your stay is enjoyable as possible – TV, DVD player (with a good selection of DVD’s if you want to stay in) a dishwasher, towels for the pool, towels for the beach, use of a pay-as-you-go mobile phone to name but a few!
The welcome folder proved to be invaluable, filled with useful information e.g. good restaurants, places to visit, taxi information etc.
We’ve been to Turkey before and stayed in another villa and a hotel but this one is the best by far!
We loved our holiday and are booking the villa for next year.
Review submitted by Nick & Karen from Monks Risborough (Submitted: 23 Aug 2006)
We have just enjoyed one of our best ever holidays on our first visit toTurkey. We were absolutely delighted with the standard of the Villa and what was provided. The services provided and the friendliness of the people who look after the villa was first class.
We were amazed at the reliability from the taxi services, airport transfers, trip organisations etc. The friendliness of the local people also added to the whole pleasure of our holiday at Araxa Villa and we would certainly visit again.
Review submitted by Sheila from Sibford Gower (Submitted: 8 Aug 2006)
lovely property in a well maintained new development. The pool was cleaned daily and most welcoming in July/August temperatures as was the air conditioning. The information pack, brochures, advice and local cel phone were very useful. The kitchen was stocked to a high standard as was the rest of the villa. The property is located in a quiet situation with easy access to the restaurants and night life of the local resort. All in all, home comforts in a holiday location.
