The space

nice and cute stone house in a peaceful environment

Villa Vista is a recently renovated stone house, with stunning views to the blue Aegean Sea and to the unspoilt green hills of Mesudiye. It combines the authentic atmosphere of a traditional Mediterranean country house with the comfort of modern facilities. It is located in the charming village of Mesudiye, just 5 minutes drive from the beaches and 20 minutes drive from Datça town center.

The villa is set in a small garden with the almond trees which fabulously blossom in the spring time.The location of Villa Vista is invaluable to discover the well-known, as well as hidden, natural and historical treasures of the Datça Peninsula where the Mediterranean embraces the Aegean Sea. While the Ancient Greek archeological site Knidos is just 25 minutes away, it is very close to numerous lovely bays of Mesudiye (such as HayıtBuku, Palamutbuku and Ova).

3 bedrooms have A/C and the other ones a ceiling fan.
It has a very nice traditional fire place at the living room.

To have a car is highly recommended to get around in Mesudiye and Datca.

We spent one month in the house. The house is beautiful, wonderfully situated on a hill overlooking the bay in a very quite village. The wonderful beach is a few minutes drive away. Melike is very nice and friendly and answers to the questions rapidly. Unfortunately we didn’t meet her in person. The toilets would need some improvements. When we there they were leaking and the water pump broke. Fortunately they were fixed by Zafer, the housekeeper, though it took several days. The stairs are very steep, so a bit dangerous for children (as noted in a previous review above). Also, we had close encouters with scorpions (3x, with one sting) inside the house. So summing up, a nice house, but not worth the price demanded.

The house was quite ok and nice. We(3 couples stayed in the house for 6 nights) prepared a list of strengths and weaknesses to make it much better for both the host and new comers. To start with strong points: 1-Decoration of the rooms was very nice and furniture were all new. 2-The location of the house was very good, quite and relaxing. We reached all the very nice beaches and bays in 10 to 20 minutes by car. 3-The people living in the neighborhood were very nice and hospitable. They all welcomed us and brought local presents from their small gardens/ farms. 4-The area designed as “patio” was very nice and good for dining and relaxing. 5-The host was very polite and communicated before the stay for extra details. Weaknesses: 1-The house was not utilizing the village water supply system but instead using a water reservoir that needs to be filled when empty. On the second day we arrived to the house, it was empty and we had to wait for it to be refilled. It was also not functioning when electricity was off. 2-The stairs were not child friendly. 3-There was no garden wall to keep the garden private and clean. The children could not utilize the garden area fully. 4-The location of the bathrooms was not very useful. The door of one of them was open into kitchen and the other one is open into a private bedroom on the second floor. 5-The hot water was provided by a electrical geyser and there was no solar panel for heating water.

Response from Melike:
Our dear guests, Thank you so much for your kind, useful and important remarks and evaluations about the house. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Vista Datca. Thank you for your nice thoughts about its decoration, location, environment, and hospitality. We are very sorry about what you had experienced about water. Water shortage at the village is not something very frequent. Actually, the house is fully connected to the village water system. The problem you encountered was due to a central water cut of the village. That's why the house has a water reservoir as supplamentary source. You are absolutely right that we, as the hosts, should keep it full in any case. And we are very sorry about the problems you had because of it. About the garden and bathrooms, we are planning for a middle-sized reconstruction for the garden walls and bathrooms. And definitely, we'll have solar panels in near future for hot water. We look forward to welcoming you again. With our kindest regards, Melike in the name of Villa Vista Datca

We visited Mesudiye and Melikes house in mai. The house is situated in a real authentic village with old houses and garden. Sitting under the mulberry trees on the terrace you can hear all the rural sounds in the village. The neighbours were very kind and welcoming. We had a good introduction to the house and the surroundings and we managed well to go to the beach, walk different paths and take the Dolmus to the nearest little town on the market day. The house is clean and sympathic. If possible, go visit Knidos!! Irina

Ev gerçekten fotoğraflardaki gibiydi. Melike Hanım ve Zafer Bey çok yardımcı oldular, her sorumuza hızla cevap verdiler. Kızımız için bir mama sandalyesi ve park yatak da bırakmışlardı. Avlusu bütün gün gölge, hem yetişkinlerin hem de çocukların vakit geçirmesi için mükemmel bir alan. Geceleri de serin. Evin içindeki yataklar çok rahat ve yeni. Üst katta her odada klima var. Alt kattaki yatak odasında ihtiyaç yok zaten. Ev çok düzgün restore edilmiş. Hayıtbükü ve Ovabüküne 5 dakika, Palamutbükü'ne 15 dakika, Datça merkeze 25 dakika'da ulaştık. Araba kiralamıştık, çok rahat ettik. Bük bük gezdik. Mutfak bayağı donanımlı. Bulaşık makinesi ve çamaşır makinesini çok rahat kullandık. Özellikle geniş ailelere ya da kalabalık gruplar için ideal, hem ev hem de avlu büyük. Mutlaka tekrar geleceğiz.

Nous avons passé une excellente semaine à Mesudyie et recommandons la maison de Melike, excellement placée pour decouvrir la presqu'ile de Datça. Belle renovation d'une ancienne maison de village, terrasse tres agreable avec pergola charmante et vue sur la mer. Situation à flanc de colline, avec de l'air. Decoration de charme. Sur la baie d'Ova buku, à notre avis de loin la plus agréable de l'endroit (beaucoup plus belle que palamutbuku ou Hayitbuku), front de mer bordé de petites terrasses charmantes avec pergola, bien aménagées, belle vegetation, charme bucolique. Ambiance tres tranquille et de bon aloi, pas de musique, clientèle plutot bourgeoise, mezze excellents partout, beaucoup d'espace. Nous etions tres contents d'être en hauteur sur la baie et non en bord de mer.

Owners: Akkaraca Family
Akaraca Family
The father: Nihat Akkaraca

He is not only the father of the family but also of the Villa. That's why the other name of Villa Vista is Mesudiye Nihat Akkaraca Evi (i.e. House). The house and its location was love at first sight for him and villa vista would never exist without his efforts.

Our father Nihat Akkaraca, who was a local of Datça, was an extraordinary person, with many intellectual and social talents. He was a perfect example for the limitlesness of an autodidactic character. Born in Eski Datça in 1931, he only finished the elementary shool under those times village conditions. After his military service, he did not go back to his village; after several tries, he understood that he did not have a trader spirit and he started to work in the construction as a blue-colour labour. He moved to Sinop on Turkey’s Black Sea Coast in search of work; taught himself English and secured a job at a USAF base. He then taught himself electronics and was given a better job by the USAF. Subsequently he opened his own electronic repair center, which he ran until he retired to his home area, where he became a stalwart of various local societies and community projects.
In Datça, his home-town, one of his many interests became local folklore. As a founder of the Datça Local History Group, Nihat documented oral tradition and recorded many stories connected with the region, and with life in Old Datça in the days when the village still had a Greek community. Nihat was an enthusiastic believer in strengthening ties between the communities of Datça and Symi (the Greek Island) and was one of the driving forces behind the founding of the World Peace Day Swim between the two. While on another front one of his projects was the education and training of migrants from eastern and southeastern anatolia to the Datça area.
Through years, he became a well-known Datça historian and an occasional contributor to the Symi Visitor newspaper over the years. He regularly contributed articles to a local paper before going on to write a widely acclaimed book. With his first book having gone to a reprint, our father was working on a second book at the time of his death (2009). We miss him deeply.
