Part of an attractive hillside village development called Karya Evleri, the villa has been designed to integrate fully with the surrounding olive groves complete with landscaped gardens and terraces all looking towards the sea and the islands.
Situated about 3 miles away from the well-known fishing village of Gümüslük, and about 5 miles to both Turgutreis and Yalikavak. Bodrum is about 15 miles away and can be reached by car in 30 to 40 minutes. The villa is ideally placed for those who would like to explore the Bodrum Peninsula, with all resorts being accessible within an hours drive. The local bus service (dolmus) is probably the best that you could find in any country and relies on a frequent minibus service with pick-up times in peak periods being every 15-20 minutes. If you are not using a car, then a 5 minute walk will take you to the nearest dolmus stop and from there you can travel to Bodrum or get off In Gümüslük. In Gümüslük there is a further connection to Turgutreis and also a taxi rank for travel elsewhere. In Bodrum, a large bus station provides transport to practically every area within turkey and here you can get on the large air-conditioned inter city buses which travel to places like Izmir and Istanbul.
A 15 minute walk will take you from the villa down to the small beach and waterfront area which possesses a jetty for sheltered swimming and also access to sun beds and parasols. Here you can also find in the summer months various water sports including sailing dinghy & windsurfing hire. There are also a couple of bars and restaurants providing refreshments.
The property comprises three bedrooms each with a double bed, two bathrooms (one on each floor). The one downstairs with fitted shower enclosure and upstairs with full-size bath and shower above. There is a fitted kitchen with fridge-freezer, automatic washing machine, chilled water dispenser, grill-oven, double hob hotplate, microwave and breakfast bar. The two main upstairs bedrooms are fitted with air-conditioning units to help overcome the hot summer temperatures. A large lounge has a feature fireplace with L-shaped seating unit, dining area with table and six chairs, large TV with satellite system and DVD player. The downstairs covered terraced area is enclosed with a wrought iron surround and features a large patio table with 8 chairs and barbeque oven. The upstairs open terrace features superb views down to the beach and jetty with sun loungers, bean-bags and a wooden built-in cushioned seating unit to laze away the hours. A full size computer system with internet access, USB2 ports and colour printer are also provided on the upper floor. For your convenience a free wi-fi internet facility both in the villa and in the vicinity of the swimming pool is provided. In the villa a skype phone has been set up to allow low cost landline calls to all of Europe (this way you can always keep in touch with friends and relatives).
The shared swimming pool is only 1 minute walk away and the automatic pool-maintenance system is continually operational (no shut-down period) with the advantage that the pool is open and accessible until late at night with the evenings having underwater floodlights. Sun loungers and parasols are provided with a pool-side snack bar providing snacks and drinks.
Underneath the swimming pool there is a games room and fitness facility with table tennis, fitness equipment and a large LCD TV.
The Rental fee for the villa does not depend on the amount of guests, however to ensure a fair system of charging there is an additional services fee of £15 per person per week to be added to the total cost which covers cleaning, laundry, electric & water costs.

The villa is comfortable and well laid out with plenty of room for us all. The property was in a beautiful position with a breathtaking view from the patio, from which we could enjoy spectacular sunsets every evening. The villa itself was extremely well equipped (the best we've ever experienced) and very comfortable. Lovely surroundings on the private site with huge pool - very often the only ones there in the morning! We also appreciated the care of the owners beforehand and after, who were keen to ensure that we had a good holiday and were extremely helpful in giving guidance and advice about the villa and surroundings, including car hire. Over all we had a wonderful holiday and have already recommended the villa to many friends. We also had a hire car which enabled us to explore the coastline and travel into Bodrum. For those wanting a relaxing time, you could not want for anything more. We look forward to returning with friends in the future
