Santosha is a luxury two bedroomed apartment at the renowned Opus Village in Gumusluk, Bodrum, Turkey. It was built in 2006 and enjoys superb uninterrupted sea views.
Opus Village has been carefully designed to blend in with the surroundings of this important historical site, and offers modern amenities and convenience including 2 large communal swimming pools, wi-fi internet access, and an amphitheatre.
The apartment is approx. 400m from the sea and has its own garden and terrace, complete with terrace furniture, from which you can watch the sunset over the sea while enjoying a glass of wine with your evening meal. One of the communal pools is literally through the garden gate and up a few steps - it's like having your own private pool as neither of the communal pools are ever that busy.
It has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms - each with a power shower, and a spacious open-plan lounge and kitchen area with fitted kitchen including gas oven with grill, toaster, kettle and all kitchen equipment, as well as two sofas, table, chairs, flat screen TV, DVD player (with loads of dvds to watch), terrace furniture, full air conditioning, fridge, freezer, washing machine, iron and ironing board and oil filled radiators for if it turns chilly.
There is a king sized bed in the main bedroom complete with ensuite bathroom. The second bedroom has two single beds.
Lounge & Kitchen

The modern kitchen area has everything you need for your stay including cooker, toaster, kettle, sink, all cooking utensils as well as all the plates, bowls glasses and cutlery you would ever need.
The apartment has 2 good sized bedrooms - a double bedroom and a twin bedroom. The double bedroom is also en-suite. Both bedrooms have air-conditioning units fitted.
Each bedroom has ample wardrobe and drawer space, and the wardrobes also contain extra bedding and blankets should you need them.
The apartment has two spacious bathrooms - one of which is en-suite to the main bedroom.
Both bathrooms feature power showers, wc, and modern sinks as well as ample cupboard space. The main bathroom also houses the Zanussi washing machine.
Terrace and Garden
The apartment has a beautiful garden within which it is possible to enjoy private sunbathing, barbecues and games. Enjoy a fantastic meal on the terrace as the sun goes down over the sea.
One of the two communal pools on Opus Village can be accessed by walking through the gate at the end of the garden and up some steps.
High Speed Wi Fi Access
High speed, site-wide wi-fi access has recently been installed at Opus Village, so you can now access the internet, check your Facebook or Twitter account, or perhaps keep an eye on your business whilst enjoying a cup of coffee on the terrace or while inside the apartment!
Opus Village, Gumusluk.
Opus Village was constructed by respected Turkish building company Opus Construction in 2006 and 2007.
It is accepted as being one of the best complexes in Turkey due to its location and the way it has been designed and built to blend in with the historic surrounding area.
It is a beautiful place with landscaped gardens, always clean and peaceful - a haven of tranquility, but within easy reach of lively Turgutreis and Bodrum.
Gumusluk is located on the Aegean coast of Turkey on the Bodrum Peninsula approx. 30 minutes from bustling Bodrum itself.
Situated on the ancient city of Myndos (the remains of which can still be seen in Gumusluk Bay), Gumusluk is an historic, beautiful and peaceful place. And because Gumusluk is protected from further development it will remain that way.
Gumusluk bay is a magical place in the evening where you can try one of the many fish restaurants right on the water's edge, and bask in the glow of the beautiful gourd lanterns.
Gumus means silver in Turkish and so Gumusluk is said to have been so named because silver was mined in ancient Myndos. An alternative suggestion for the name is that the reflection of the moon on the water turns the bay a beautiful silver. Either way, Gumusluk is a Turkish jewel.
Bodrum is just 15km away from the apartment and stands on the site of the ancient city of Halicanassus, home to the remains of King Mausolous' tomb, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. It is situated on the southwest coast of Turkey, with its two harbours open to the Aegean.
"Santosha" - the feeling of being content with what we have. To be at peace within and content with one's lifestyle finding contentment even while experiencing life’s difficulties. We should accept that there is a purpose for everything and we cultivate contentment 'to accept what happens'. It means being happy with what we have rather than being unhappy about what we don't have....Read more
"Experienced a fantastic holiday in the Santosha apartment"

We visited this lovely apartment in September 2012 and had one of the best holidays. The apartment is superbly placed within a private and quiet area yet close enough to Gumusluk centre with it's quaint restaurants, bars and safe sandy beach. It is ideally located to explore other lovely seaside villages and towns. The apartment is spacious and extremely well presented, furnished and is truly home from home with a fully equipped kitchen. There is access to two lovely swimming pools so really you couldn't ask for more. We highly recommend this apartment and will certainly be looking to go back in the future.

"I visited apartment Santosha in May 2011 and had a fantastic week. I was able to relax in the sun with a book in the lovely garden, hike through fields of beautiful spring flowers, visit areas of immense archaeological interest, sample some of the mouthwatering food in Gumusluk Bay and watch the setting sun dip below the horizon. That was all on the first day ! You can have the best of both worlds with this apartment. If you want to have a quiet and relaxing holiday then it is ideal or if you want to dip into the varied nightlife in the area then it is within easy reach, but far enough away so as to not disturb you when you return. I highly recommend the Santosha experience." - Vincent Johnson, Cambridge, UK
