I can't say enough wonderful things about the Yilmaz and Dorothe's Beach House at Ovabükü on the Datça peninsula. The restored old stone house right on the beach was exactly as described and pictured. We were stunned by the beauty of the bay and picturesque location when we arrived and even as the days passed, we still had to pinch ourselves to believe our luck at finding this place. The house, three bedrooms, a bathroom and a kitchen, is comfortable but not fancy; it is definitely a beach house. However, that said, everything works well, has been recently updated, and is in good condition. There were five of us, three adults and two kids, so we cooked almost every meal in the house and the kitchen was laid out for its size (medium to small), worked well, and contained good kitchen tools and pans. Two of us could cook and work together comfortably (with some accommodation) in the kitchen. We did all of our eating and "family room" activities at the big table on the porch with a fantastic view of the beach, the sunset, the stars, and the Greek isles within sight across the bay. The beach, as pictured, is a rocky beach (beautiful stones). Often there is a brisk wind off the beach (very nice on hot days) and the current in the bay picks up speed then as well. The kids and all of us spent a lot of time on the beach and reading and napping on the chaise lounges under the turquoise umbrellas. The water was still cold in June when we went, but warms up as the summer heats up. Ovabüku is a very small beach town, so it's quiet. There are small pensions on either side of the beach house and so the guests at those establishments inhabited the beach on either side of us. In general, everyone was friendly. They were primarily Turks and Germans. Their kids played with our kids. There are several day trips worth taking in the immediate area, to the town of Datça and its nearly ancient and restored village, to Palamutbükü, a nearby and larger village, to Knidos, the ruins of a vibrant and important port city at the end of the penninsula, as well as visits to the many hidden and lovely beaches between Ovabükü and the end of the peninsula (Knidos). Also, from the next bay it's possible to take a day's sailing trip to several locations in the area including Knidos. Enjoy fresh fish at the local restaurants and the excellent local produce sold at the twice a week farmer's market in Palamutbükü. I've saved the best for last. Yilmaz and Dorothe couldn't have been kinder or better hosts. They are truly lovely people who love Ovabükü and want their guests to enjoy the locale as much as they themselves do. Dorothy's English is excellent. Both speak German and Turkish. They made us feel entirely at home and took excellent care of us.
