A fabulous, luxury, comtemporary villa set behind high walls, over four floors, professionally decorated, with lots of modern open spaces, a private pool, mature gardens and a BBQ Terrace set in the mountains above the seaside resort of Olu Deniz. This is a professionally run villa offering five star amenities and services from feather beds to marble bathrooms, we aim to exceed your expectations. If you are looking for a luxury experience in Turkey, stay with us!

The space

Villa Babylon has an extraordinary setting, perched high above the area to the east of the Olu Deniz seaside resort, providing sensational views of the mountains that reach, on clear days, as far as those that enclose the Gulf of Fethiye. Terraced gardens surround the property, with Citrus, Peach, Fig and Pomegranate trees. A walled garden screens the limestone paved pools area. It is a dream choice for large groups and extended families, particularly those that relish the idea of an outdoor lifestyle, somewhere not just to stay but to really enjoy. Recently upgraded, its design, size, elevation and amenities make it the number one choice in Olu Deniz with five individually designed bedrooms (including two Master Suites) five bathrooms, a guest rest-room, a Family Room, a magnificent Media Lounge, extensive indoor and outdoor dining and lounging areas, balconies, terraces and all with spectacular mountain views.

The highlight of the property is undoubtedly the outdoor living spaces. The fragrant flowers of Orange trees and a collection of exotic Palms fill the lovingly-maintained garden which is designed to provide numerous, tranquil seating areas and play spaces for children. The pool area is a sun basked focal point – a Whirlpool seating 10 with a gentle water-fall that cascades into the main pool. A further, sun-set facing, landscaped terrace complete with Weber Gas Barbecue presents the perfect space for an ‘al fresco’ lifestyle.

Villa Babylon is both contemporary and stylish, offering true luxury, real comfort, enhanced security, great service, and wonderful, complimentary amenities, all just moments from Turkey's most famous beach and lagoon.

UNIQUE BENEFITS of staying at Villa Babylon;

Pool Heating is charged at cost and depends on the time of year.

QUALITY; The villa has been totally refitted to European standards (including the electricty supply which is industrial strength) with marble finishes in almost every room and premium furnishings and fittings.

SERVICE - Villa Babylon is professionally run and offers outstanding service - No detail is too small, no request too large.

Villa Babylon enjoys a 5 star Home Away rating and is continually renovated and improved for each season. I believe these features are why other guests have described Villa Babylon as "simply perfect".

LAYOUT

Nestled on a mountain side, you enter the villa on the first floor which houses the family room and open-plan, gourmet kitchen and a stone walled Barbecue Terrace that catches the evening sun.

On the ground floor, which has floor to ceiling windows overlooking the poolside, is the Home cinema with Playstation and Apple TV opening onto a Reading Room with marble fireplace. This floor has one of the Master Suites with a Hamam inspired bathroom and walk-in drench shower. There is a laundry room on this level with washer and dryer. A further full bathroom is also located on this floor.

Back on the first floor, double doors lead off the kitchen to a large, covered veranda with dining and lounging areas, both of which have breathtaking views of the pine-clad mountainside and valleys. The dining table which seats eight is made from a 200 year old Ottoman door. The entire flooring of the villa is cooling marble and with lots of floor to ceiling sliding glass wall doors and amazing views from all the rooms.

The second floor contains 3 bedrooms; two doubles (one ensuite), a twin room and the family bathroom. All have stunning views and two have balconies.

The third floor is dedicated solely to the second Master Suite, which has fantastic mountain views on both sides and a spa-inspired bathroom featuring a twin jacuzzi tub, separate walk in shower. A sunset facing terrace leads off this bedroom, the summer chair is an ideal place to enjoy the views.

Fergal is a great guy. Fantastic host. Very accomodating. His place is stunning. Well kept. It has everything you need and more. My family were happy and some. The complimentaty cake, pie stocked up bar on arrival were appreciated. The barbecue area and well stocked kitchen was great for cooking. The pool area was enjoyed by both kids and adults. The rooms were very nice and the views from them were stunning. The house had internet so my friend and I could catch up with work and the kids could surf, play games or go on social media. The main tv area was also great. Some of us watched movies in the evenings, Netflix and had a good surround system. The communication from Fergal was great all the way through the holiday. He was on hand if you need advice and help about the villa or Turkey. So thank you from all 11 of us Fergal. We really enjoyed staying at Villa Babylon...

Fergal was quite simply the most amazing host ever... He went out of his way to make sure everything was absolutely perfect and as a result me and my team got nothing short of it. Communication was clear and fast from the very beginning and he helped organise every tiny request I might have thrown at him without any if's and but's. Villa Babylon itself is a taste of paradise you will struggle to forget for a long time, your heart and mind will yearn to return to bask in it's beauty inside and out. The pool and Jacuzzi were sublime and the wonderful spacious and air conditioned interior was a Godsend. It had everything we needed and the welcome hamper, fully loaded mini bar and fresh luxury towels left us all feeling like VIP's. The location is a short stones throw away from a line of awesome restaurants, banks, shops and supermarkets who all offer incredible value for money, we hired a car which was also organised by Fergal (as well as airport transfers and a bunch of other activities) so we were able to hit the hidden beaches and tons of other nearby places with comfort and ease to aid us in our research. I can't recommend this enough! There is so much more I can say about Villa Babylon and Fergal, but I'll cut it short here and just say you cannot go wrong with this choice. With first class service from the host that will put high end hotels to shame, your stay here will be the stuff of dreams! =D

Thanks a lot Fergal:) Your hospitality and Villa Babylon was great. We had a beautiful vacation with our family and our cat. Fergal's kindness and attention made us very happy, especially surprise cakes were amazing. We are also pleased for the location that is very quite and central for staying without car. You will be glad for staying Babylon with every little details and kind thoughts.

Villa Babylon was the most perfect place for our holiday. There were 10 of us altogether, ranging from 3 to 64 years. The kitchen was incredibly well equipped, much better than any other villa we've stayed in. The amount of complimentary food and drinks from fergal was extremely generous and very much appreciated. We did pay the extra fee to have the pool heated which in may is definitely a requirement. The bathrooms and bedroom are very well equipped and there is a lot of detail and thought throughout the house which really added to the experience of staying in Babylon. Just little things like beach towels, lots of toiletries around, very comfy seating in and out. The dolmus is a short walk and there is a taxi call point very close to the villa and so we managed a whole week very easily with no car.

Not many places can be found that are as accommodating as this one. With a stunning view and beautiful home, we were more than pleased. Fergal is by far one of the best hosts i have experienced with airbnb. Welcoming, friendly, and truly giving at times. He even brought us some sweets as it was my birthday. I could not rate this stay high enough.

Fergal is an excellent host and has put an enormous amount of work into his house. The kitchen is fully stocked and built to cook for large numbers. All the bedrooms are big and have great beds. Bathrooms are top notch with some nice touches. We used the heated pool and fire place daily. Electronics are all high end. Short drive to the beach or market. A car is recommended if you are going to rent this villa, but not mandatory.
