Bought apartment and villa build in Sarigerme
See video below
Buying ‘off plan’ was quite daunting as I only had a computer generated image of what the finished product would look like but it meant that I had control of the final finishing’s and was able to take advantage of reduced stage payments. During the build I was sent regular updates and photos by email of the development. The same person dealt with me throughout the build and would always answer my questions in a timely manner.
I spent a week in January, again hosted by Lycia at their Malikane Residence and spent time with the architect choosing the internal fits and finishing’s. The standard price items had a vast range to choose from but I was also given the opportunity to upgrade if I saw an alternative that I preferred.
A final trip in August teamed me up with a ‘Personal Shopper’ again supplied through Lycia who hosted me for the day and together we chose all my furniture, lights and curtains.
This September, ten months after signing on the dotted line I spent a week with two friends in my new fully furnished apartment. The finish and quality of the build was amazing and the overseeing of all the furniture delivery was first class. The beds had even been made and my kitchen items that were wrapped up in paper and in bags had been unpacked washed and put away.
I am now the proud owner of an overseas property in a country that I love and it has been one of the best decisions of my life. The whole experience has been a thrilling journey which was made so easy by the owners and staff at Lycia Properties. My thanks especially must go to Sultan Demirci who guided me through the process and who was always so cheerful and helpful. Lycia Properties will now continue to manage the property maintenance and additionally offer a service to assist in rental opportunities if required.

Paul was looking to invest in a villa where he could earn rental income from his property and also take small parties of people from the UK during autumn and winter for golf coaching in the breathtaking surroundings of the new Hilton golf course and spa at Sarigerme.
Talking about the decision to buy a villa in Turkey Paul said, “I had considered investing in Spain or Portugal and I'm glad I held off and followed my instincts for the growing popularity of golf in Turkey and the value for money that the country offers in terms of property prices and non-Eurozone cost of living."
“The new course being built as part of the new Hilton Dalaman Golf Resort & Spa in Sarigerme on Turkey’s Turquoise Coast is a 15 minute drive from the excellent Dalaman Airport. The golfing facilities will be fantastic, combined with views of pine-covered mountains, a wonderful climate and activities from sailing to scuba diving. The economic advantages on top of all this make it a very attractive business investment."
“The personal and honest service I experienced from Kieron Hunt and his team at Propertyinturkey.com is mirrored by the help I get from their Turkish business partners Hakan and Katie Cinar. They have helped to sort out all the legal elements and put in place a sensibly priced maintenance package that gives me peace of mind when I’m not there.”
Royal Links Villa, Sarigerme
In 2006 my wife and I decided to purchase our own property abroad. We researched the best countries in the world for investment and rental yield and we also considered a place for regular holidays and possibly in future years a country we may wish to retire to. All our research pointed to Turkey, a country in which we had enjoyed some very pleasant holidays.
We saw a huge range of properties but could not find our dream home. We encountered some very persistent sales people and some poor building standards.
In June 2009 on a visit to view properties we could not find anything suitable and had almost given up. We arranged to view some of their (Lycia) properties the next day in the Sarigerme/Dalyan area. We were immediately impressed with the design, quality and standard of detail also there was no hard sell in fact we found the viewings a most pleasant experience.
Within a few days we purchased an Apartment in Dalyan from Lycia Properties. Kate and Hakan handled the purchase and subsequent hand over extremely professionally. They even assisted in the furnishing of our property.
We have employed the Lycia management team to ensure our property is maintained to the highest standards. We have the Lycia team on-hand to ensure our rental guests are given 1st class service whilst on holiday in Turkey. They arrange airport transfers, meet and greet hampers and cleaning. Lycia also assisted in opening a bank account for the paying of utility bills in our absence. Without doubt the service we receive from Lycia properties is exemplary nothing is too much trouble for them.
We have no hesitation in recommending Lycia Properties to anyone wishing to purchase a home in Turkey.
