We've just come back from eight days staying at this villa, and would thoroughly recommend it.
The villa itself is really nice, with loads of space, and located on a quiet development, with its own security. All of the rooms are a really good size, and the pool is great. We were a party of eight and we easily fitted in with a couple of beds to spare.
The villa is situated between Kadriye and Belek (about 3-4km to each - and the same to the beach), and although a car hire would have probably been easiest, we used the local buses to get around. These are very simple to use and good value for money. There is a small shop just five minutes walk away where you can get a lot of things, and then larger shops in Belek and Kadriye where we picked up other things.
The level of service you get with this villa is very high: Bill was on hand before we went to answer any questions that we had, and help us organise a few things, and then Kerim is based on site and is always there if you have any questions or need anything. When my wife needed to go to hospital for a minor injury, he was able to recommend where to go, and helped to sort out the transport for this.
We'd also really recommend Afri - the person they use for airport transfers. We organised a couple of day trips with him (Perge, Aspendos, a boat trip and some waterfalls), and really enjoyed ourselves. He also took my wife to the hospital and pharmacy, and provided translation services!! You can contact him through Kerim.
The shared facilities on the site were a little tired - the small play area could have done with some repair, and the large pool wasn't up and running yet, as it was too early in the holiday season. You could also tell when visiting Belek and Kadriye that they weren't really geared up for tourists yet - things we still getting set up, etc. At the beach, every restaurant/cafe/shop that we asked at said that they didn't have ice cream and wouldn't be getting it for three weeks - when the season started. From our point of view, it was nice for the place to be a bit quieter - but do be aware that if you go off-season then everything might not be functioning as you expect.
All in all, we would thoroughly recommend the villa to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday, or to use it as a base for exploring. If we return to Antalya, then we'd definitely stay here again.
Thanks for such an amazing vacation .. The house is perfect and the pool is stunning. We just enjoying every minut .. And special thanks to Kerim , he was so helpfull, friendly and a real gentleman . I will definitely come back soon ..
Thanks Bill & Kerim
Very good vacation great weather many things. Very nice villa with everything you need and great service from Kerim whom is very helpful with everything.
We had a great holiday at the villa. It was quiet clean and the workers on site were always approachable and helpful. We will book our next holiday in turkey definitely return
It was really good holiday at Orchard Villa. Thanks to Bill for being patient and makes it work for us. I also appreciate all the good work both Phil and Paul put into making our stay very smooth. These guys got it right.
Couple of things were highlighted to Phil to fix (minor things) and he mentioned to me that they are waiting until the end of the season to fix and re-furbish the villa.
I think the guys were very helpful, professional and flexible. They ensured that our stay was a pleasant one.
I would definitely recommend it to everyone and the next time I am in Antalya, I will stay there again.
