“Beautiful looking villa but a few teething problems that need to be ironed out...”
3 von 5 Sternen Bewertet am 12. Juli 2012 für einen Aufenthalt im Juni 2012
Mit Google übersetzen

We stayed for a week at Villa Dandy with my family in the lead up to my wedding in Bodrum as Torba was a convenient location for us whist finalising the arrangements. Several of our wedding guests were also staying in villas in Torba which I had the opportunity to view and so I have a good sense of what else is available in the area and this review is in that context. Good and bad points about the villa as below. I think most of the issues we had may be teething problems as I understand the villa is a relatively new acquisition for the owners and we were some of the first guests. Hopefully some of the issues will be sorted out and it is a lovely villa so rather than let this review put you off, I suggest you ask questions about some of the issues we had to see if they have been resolved before booking. Overall, we had a lovely holiday and the area is great with very easy access to Bodrum on the dolmus (bus service) from the bottom of the road. Negative commenst below are really to help others get the most out of their stay.

The good:
- The villa is beautifully decorated and very clean. It looks great and the views are just gorgeous. All rooms are a good size and the master is a fantsastic suite.
- The location in Torba is also excellent, being a short walk (via a steep hill though) to the local supermarket and down to the sea front.
- The garden, whilst on the small side, is very well kept and a gardener visited several times during the week to maintain it. Ditto the pool which, although very small, is also well maintained.
- My 5 year old neice loved the media box stocked with kid's TV programmes form the UK.

The bad:
- The pool is very deep in all places (an adult can't stand); not ideal for children.
- The mattresses are soft foam ones and we all found them pretty uncomfortable. Beware if you have a bad back and/or are used to a good mattress at home.
- There were only 4 sun loungers so if you are in a large group of sun lovers you'll be tossing a coin.
- There was no wifi. May not be a problem for most people (perhaps they want to escape it all!) but with a wedding to plan it was a real issue for us. My fault for not checking with the owners before booking but others beware! My iphone bill was enormous as a result of data usage whilst we were there.
- Also no TV channel access. Again probably not a problem most summers (Turkish TV is nothing to write home about!) but with the European Cup football on whilst we were there and the Olympics on this summer it may be an issue for some. There is a media box with loads of English language programmes and movies though.
- Water shortages. On 2 mornings we woke up without any water (luckily not the morning of the wedding!). The whole area operates on a system of water tanks which get refilled periodically. The tank at Villa Dandy is clearly too small for a the usuage of a family of 7 as on both occassions that the gardener visited and zealously watered the garden, we were left without water the following morning until the tank refilled later afternoon. The villas where our friends were staying nearby did not seem to have this problem, presumably beacuse they have larger tanks. If you stay here, be sure to ask lots of questions about how the water works and go easy on water use on the days the gardener comes or you could find yoursleves unable to shower the following day!
- Beware sitting on the table benches on the terrace with a damp swimsuit. This caused the wood stain to come off on 2 of my dresses whic are now ruined. I suggest sitting on a towel to save your clothes.
- There was a delay in returning our depsoit due to an allegation of minor damage that was nothing to do with us. In the end it transpired that the Property Manager had not checked the property properly between us and the previous guests and so could not be sure who had caused the damage, so thankfully we got back the full £500 deposit (minus the £18 paypal fees). Moral of the story to others staying here - make sure you insist on having a good inspection with the manager at the start and end of your stay.

As I said, overall a beauitiful villa, just be prepared for the issues above.

Dear Rhian,

We are very sad to see you didn't have a positive experience overall. I can assure you none of the other guests staying in our Villa have expressed any of your concerns, including the families who have recently stayed. I do wish you had notified me directly at the time so that I was able to resolve them for you if our property manager wasn’t fulfilling her responsibilities. However, I feel that I need to address each of your issues separately now.

The pool is fairly deep, but we do state on the website that children must be supervised. We have 2 children ourselves (aged 3 & 5), and they swim and play happily in the pool whilst being supervised. As you viewed the villa prior to booking I am surprised you were subsequently unhappy with the size of the pool and garden. I will however, post some pictures of the outside so that other customers can see in advance the outside area more clearly.

With regard to the mattresses; we actually spent a lot of time and money buying good quality ones. We did this for two reasons; Firstly, I have a serious back problem and secondly, we wanted to ensure maximum comfort for the majority of our guests. We are sorry you personally didn’t find them comfortable, but we chose medium firmness to ensure most people would be happy.

Regarding the outside seating, there are 4 sun loungers, 4 reclining deckchairs and 4 bean bags available.

You are right in saying the villa has no Wi-Fi or local TV. We decided that this was a holiday home and therefore we didn’t want the entrapments of modern day life, which can easily disrupt the tranquillity of a holiday. We did include a media box which contains a wide variety of movies, comedy, series, documentaries and kids programmes. We didn’t put it on the website as we have simply detailed the facilities the villa does have.

With regard to the water issue; the villa is on a hill as stated on the website, and there can be a small delay in filling the main supply depot at the top at times. This can have a knock on effect to the villas feeding from it on the site. In saying that, during our stay directly after you, we used the washing machine, dishwasher and the gardener and pool man visited daily and at no point did we find ourselves without water, nor have the other guests who stayed after us. Also, the guest notes that were sent out do state that there may be a small (15 minute) delay in filling the tank if the gardener has emptied it watering. The tank has a ballcock, so fills on demand. Therefore, if you experienced overnight water shortage, which must have been due to a rare issue with the water supplier, as this really has never been an issue previously.
Unfortunately, we were not aware of any problem with the benches prior to your visit and we apologise for any damage caused to your clothing. The table and benches outside have been sanded and varnished since your visit which we have been assured will resolve the issue.

The reason the deposit was delayed was as mentioned to do with the issues with the damaged table. This issue was resolved quickly and easily as we felt the best approach was to merely ask you if you knew anything about it. You said your party were not responsible for the damage and we accepted this. You confirmed that the delay returning the deposit really wasn’t a problem and was unavoidable due to the need to look into the cause of the damage.

“5 star villa with 3 star price - a definite recommendation!”
5 von 5 Sternen Bewertet am 21. September 2011 für einen Aufenthalt im September 2011
Mit Google übersetzen

First impression - WOW! The photos just don't do this villa justice. It is furnished and equipped to a very high standard (5 star) and excellent value for the money. The villa is tastefully decorated with every detail in mind. It is very comfortable, and has anything you can possible need. We were extremely impressed with it's cleanliness - including the pool area.

My children (9, 6 and 4) very much enjoyed their holiday here especially with the vast variety of movies and cartoons provided on the media box.

We enjoyed the villa so much that we spent a lot of time just relaxing by the pool. The location is fantastic and a relaxing place to be with some really stunning views. We enjoyed evening BBQ’s on the patio whilst watching the most amazing sunsets.

There are great local restaurants just down the road and a lovely beach too. Only a short taxi / bus ride to Bodrum, so perfectly located. Don't bother with hiring a car unless you want to get off the beaten track. We used the dolmus buses to travel and enjoyed the experience. A well stocked supermarket is conveniently located at the end of the road.

Would definitely recommend staying here!

Villa was fantastic and beautifully furnished, exactly as publicised. Set in a quite location it enabled us to get a good night’s rest before exploring the peninsula. Swimming pool was great and a brilliant way to wake up in the morning. Made quite a few breakfasts in the kitchen and having fresh fruits during the day (local supermarket 5 minutes away) was refreshing.
The beach was very close and nice and had all the water sports we wanted to do. Supermarket at the bottom was very useful and being so close to the Dolmus stop was good as it enabled us to get around. Some very good historical places to visit around Bodrum, it let us pick up some knowledge about the region and check out a few sites, Bodrum castle was fantastic and is a must see.
