Beautiful, air-conditioned detached 3-bed villa with lovely sea views. Terrace + private garden & pool. Walking distance to Gumusluk beach and seafood restaurants.
Delightful, detached 3-bed villa with lovely sea views. Private garden, own pool. Walking distance to beach and Gumusluk seafood restaurants.
Architecturally designed, in a small luxury development where every attention has been paid to detail. The site has been professionally landscaped with olive trees, shrubs, and climbing plants. It has two large communal pools (in addition to the villa's private one) and even has its own amphitheatre set in parkland!
Beautifully designed interior with highest quality furnshings and finish.
The private swimming pool (8x4 metres, depth 1.5 metres) is surrounded by landscaped gardens and grassy areas, which benefit from both sun and shade throughout the day.
DUE TO IMMEDIATE PROXIMITY OF POOL TO THE PROPERTY, IT IS NOT RECOMMENDED FOR VERY YOUNG CHILDREN.
The lounge leads out to a terrace with a large table and comfortable seating area for al fresco dining/ barbecuing.
The large balcony upstairs with stylish Rattan armchairs and a sofa is a favourite spot for evening drinks as you watch the sunset over the Greek islands in the distance. Alternatively wander over to the amphitheatre with your glass of wine and enjoy the panoramic views.
There is a tranquil walk down an old donkey track to the delightful fishing village of Gumusluk with its unspoilt beach and famous seafood restaurants. Follow the pathway along the beach and discover the ancient city of Myndos with its mosaics and ruins, partly submerged beneath the bay.
Why Gumusluk? Why this Villa?
We were enchanted by Gumusluk on one of our first holidays abroad, way back in 1990.
We returned in April 2006. What a relief to find the village just as we remembered it, thanks to a conservation order which has prevented any building around the bay. Our villa is as close as you can get to Gumusluk: one of very few properties within walking distance.('Gumusluk', we discovered, can mean anything up to 10km from the fishing village!)
And the villa? The build is very high quality, the development is small and is set amidst parkland with an amphitheatre.
It was still under construction when we first saw it in April, but by August it was transformed, exceeding all our expectations! Even the photos don't do it justice: you really need to go and see it for yourselves.
We have just returned from our second trip to this villa, and cannot recommend it more highly. Located in a prime yet private position, the villa is exceptionally well pro-visioned and comfortable. The villa gets direct sunshine throughout the day, but effective air conditioning and, of course, the pool, means that the heat is never a problem. Very easy to self-cater - nearest supermarket is less than 5 minutes drive away, and there is an excellent food market in the village each Wednesday.
The fishing village of Gumusluk is a short drive or stroll from the villa, with a range of quality restaurants to suit all budgets and tastes. The village is small enough such that even on a busy evening, it never feels packed - and importantly the majority of the people are local.
This is a superb villa with everything you need to have a very comfortable and relaxing stay in Turkey. The privacy of the garden and the pool mean you can spend days relaxing and reading. The local restaurants are great value and serve delicious food. We have been before and will go again!
Very good accommodation with excellent pool. Friendly and communicative owners. Lots of extra items freely available for use such as beach towels, snorkels, books, DVDs and endless crockery and glasses to mention but a few, providing a very homely feeling.
Wifi rather intermittent, but good access around site office pool within 100 yards. Site staff very accommodating.
Would definitely recommend hiring a car. A very relaxing and enjoyable holiday.
Gumusluk Villa is a really nice holiday villa, spacious, good size pool, no clutter, clean and nearly everything works that should work ( exceptions being fridge that is being fixed or replaced and wifi that was patchy). Things I especially liked about the villa include: ability to see the sea from master bed, pool big enough to swim in, lots of space, close to Gumusluk which is the nicest part of the Bodrum peninsular by some margin, quiet, lovely flowers in hedges around the garden, sleeps six comfortably and the villa is generally well designed.
We had a wonderful 10 days the property has everything you could need and is well-maintained. The pool is a lovely luxury and we also had almost sole use of the larger pools in the development. A short walk to lovely restaurants in the fishing village. All very quiet and relaxing. Would definitely go again.
Very well equiped and comfortable, distance to Gumusluk fishing village in the height of summer was a bit of a strenuous walk, we had a car for 4 days in our 2 week stay, if we went again would have a car for longer.
The recomended company,proper car, for car hire and transfers was first class.
The other 2 swimming pools on site are very good and not used very much.
Site staff are all very friendly and sorted out any problems very promtly.

We were very impressed by the villa and its location. Air conditioned rooms, magnificant views, al fresco dining and private swimming pool all added to the ambience. Relatively easy access(via donkey track) to the beautiful fishing village of Gumusluk with its many water side restaurants, beaches, fascinating market and friendly people added to the enjoyment of our holiday. Within a short drive to Bodrum and possible trips to Ephesus, several Greek islands and Pamukkale, this is a desirable spot for the perfect holiday.
The development has taken advantage of natural terracing and the spectacular view. I especially liked the sunsets! The villa is beautifully situated within the development. Inside it has a welcoming balance of comfort and luxury. Accommodation for six means just that, with three well-appointed bedrooms; no ‘making do’ for the third couple. The mosquito nets at the windows and effective air-conditioning units all add to the comfort. Then outside in the garden there’s the sun you would expect, but also dappled sunlight and shade at all times of the day. But also, to top it all, there’s the pool. It’s a real swimming pool, clean blue and with underwater lighting. This really was luxury.

Enjoyed walking to village- very pretty bay with delightful restaurants. Villa spacious,very clean, nicely furnished and very well-equipped. Own pool made a real difference and lovely patio setting for evening meals. Sunsets from amphitheatre were spectular on some evenings, especially when we took a bottle of wine with us!!
