For access to the beach, there is now a "Beach Train" which leaves the top of the complex every hour, and brings you back again in the afternoon.
You can, of course walk it to the beach, but please bear in mind that the house is situated on a hill, and therefore the walk back to the house can be taxing!
Gumusluk is a favourite peninsula village, 30 minutes drive from Bodrum. Its situation, on the site of the ancient city of Myndos has ensured that no large scale development has been allowed. Like many of the coastal villages it is divided in two, with one part inland and one part at the sea side. The local Divers will tell you that Gumusluk is the best place for snorkelling, in the calm waters of the sheltered bay all sorts of sunken ruins can be found, and there is a causeway, sometimes above water, sometimes below, to Rabbit Island where almost tame rabbits run around. Just roll up your trousers and wade out, the view from the Island is excellent! To one side of the headland is a sandy beach, with beach side restaurants and sunbeds, and a short walk through the little lanes with craft stalls and grocery shops will bring you to the other side where the famous fish restaurants, with their tempting displays of locally caught fish, are perched right on the shoreline. A small Byzantine church above the beach is now a cultural centre with a regular programme of concerts and exhibitions.
Gumusluk is famous for its fish restaurants. People from all over Bodrum Peninsula visit the place for having a great fish lunch or dinner. You choose it from the display, do the bargaining and they bring it to you the way you love it, broiled, grilled or fried.
No other area on the Turkish Aegean coast provides the visitor with the opportunity to experience traditional Turkish life only a few minutes away from the hustle and bustle of a modern tourist center.
One of the unique features of Bodrum as a holiday resort is that in addition to the active recreational opportunities available by day and the unequaled Bodrum nightlife, so many more tranquil bays, beaches and villages are available to enjoy.
You will find the little town of Turgetreis at the western tip of the Peninsula. Named after the famous admiral, Turgut Reis, this is a stroll town in its own right and combines a compact town center with several long sandy beaches. This part of the coast is favored by professional wind surfers as the winds are generally stronger here.
Alternatively, you can shop for bargains under the stars! Yalikivak, Turgetreis and Bodrum enjoy a setting amidst
Ephesus is the best-preserved classical city on the Mediterranean,and perhaps the best place in the world to get the feeling for what life was like in Roman times. As a strategic coastal gateway to the Eastern World, this Ionian refuge grew to be the second largest city in the Roman Empire. Legend has it that the Virgin Mary,accompanied by St. Paul, came to Ephesus at the end of her life,circa 37-45 AD. In 1967 Pope Paul VI visited the site, where a chapel now stands, and confirmed the authenticity of the legend. Also the Basilica of St. John is located near Ephesus. St. John is said to have lived the last years of his life here and after his death, a shrine was located over his grave.
Olu Denizis one of Turkeys most scenic coastal resorts. It is probably Turkeys most photographed beach!! The main beach is a wide stretch of white sand and shingle down to the crystal, turquoise waters. From the beach you can arrange your choice of activity which includes paragliding and many watersports.
We now have a Golf Course near the lake at Tuzla, which is approx 45 mins away.
Overall, the property met our expectations providing a decent sized villa in a quiet area. However, Turkey is very hot in August and we struggled sometimes without air-conditioning particularly as the fans were a bit broken and so didnt seem safe to leave on overnight in a childrens bedroom. We also found the bathrooms lacking. We understand that the Turkish plumbing means that toilet paper needs to be put in the bin but we found it impossible to stop the toilets themselves smelling of ammonia. We were obviously not the first to notice this as there were lots of air fresheners and toilet blocks around the place.
Nevertheless, these small complaints were more than made up for by the easily accessible and lovely swimming pool and the beautiful relaxing environment around the villa.
Other reviewers had suggested that hiring a car would be a good idea. We chose not to do this and found that the Dolmus service was great - reliable, frequent and reasonably priced.
Overall then, we would all give the villa a thumbs up if, like us you are looking for something away from the big resorts and are not afraid to give up a few luxuries.

The property was in a lovely secluded location within the complex, yet was minutes to the pool and the bar/restaurant. The property itself was better than we expected particularly the spacious upstairs that left lots of room for suitcases etc.
The guy running the bar/restaurant was very helpful and accommodating. Although the menu was limited what was available was tasty with a real home cooked feel. It was great value for money.
Once we got over the hurdle of confirming our identity to access the private lagoon - this was a delight. We felt very exclusive. The whole family preferred this as a location than the beach in Gumusluk.
We divided our time between the beach at Gumusluk, the lagoon at the complex and day trips. Of our trips - Bodrum, Turgetreis, and Yalikavak we would certainly recommend Bodrum and Yalikavak. Turgetreis was a bit too touristy for our taste.
Overall a very memorable holiday, particularly the stunning views and sunsets across the bay.

We had a fantastic holiday and the villa is lovely. Gumusluk (and the surrounding towns) are great places if you want to get away from the hassle of the bigger citys (tourist resorts) in Turkey, but at the same time has everything you might want... there are quiet relaxing beaches and resturants in Gumusluk and a 10/15 min bus ride to the more busier shops and bars.
The dolmus (bus) are very cheap and run until 2/3am so can have a good night out without any hassle. Gumsan complex has its own pool and small shop very close by and the beach lido is lovely with two cafes, showers and changing rooms and a safe area to swim. Although the beach is a nice walk down the hill it can be a treck to walk back up, however, there is a beach train that will dro p you off at the villa if you dont fancy the walk. The villa is as described, comfortable and clean and lovely to sit out in the evening. The turkish residents nearby were really freindly offering help if we needed (we thought that was lovely) also Stu the owners freind who picked us up at the airport was very helpful too. We would recommend both the villa and the area of Gumusluk and would go back their again ourselves.

The villa is an lovely location, with views over the Agean. It is quite hilly, so we would have struggled without a hire car in the August heat even though the local Dolmus service was very convenient and cheap to use.
We had a few problems with the water supply as it is turned off for several hours a day in the complex. The owners have installed a reserve water tank, but there must have been a leak as we were left without running water for a few hours on a couple of days. We have fed this back to the owners, and Im sure this will soon be resolved.
The surrounding villages are beatiful with some lovely restaurants & shops, and we would definately recommend watching the sun go down whilst eating in the Limon restaurant in Gumusluk, it was quite spectacular.

A most comfortable and well presented property. It has everything you could need as well as a fantastic view and peaceful location. The photos do not do this property justice. We can highly recommend this property in all its aspects. The owners have taken alot of care to present the house well and provide all the comforts. Ideally located to explore this area of Turkey easily.

Submitted to our e-mail box at firstname.lastname@example.org. From Mr and Mrs Troughear, Carterton, Oxfordshire.Hi JohnWe hope that you had a nice holiday in our villa atGumusluk.As part of our marketing plan we usually write to our clients to ask them if they enjoyed their stay, or if they had any problems.Because we have not been in the renting business for too long we want to try and improve each year. Therefore we would really appreciate any comments that you may have.RegardsGeoff and Olya Dear Geoff and OlyaWe greatly enjoyed our stay at Gumusluk villa andTurkey. Mr Boye was waiting for us at the airport andwe found him courteous and efficient. The villa waswell equipped and clean and although we ate out mostnights found it pretty well sorted. The only additioncould be another fan as we needed one in each bedroomand in the lounge for sleeping as it was incrediblyhot. We would certainly consider returning to thevilla in the future. Thanks for all your info andhelp. It all added to the enjoyment.RegardsJohn
In the quiet Bay of Gumusluk there are about 6 small Restaurants and Bars. Here, you can enjoy the delightful fresh caught fish from the local fishermen! or tradtional Turkish food.
From the terrace there is a wonderful view of Gumusluk Bay!
A car is not essential requirement, however, as there is so much to do and see in the area, it would be a missed opportunity not to have one.
About the owner
We have had our house in Turkey for over 5 years. We love Turkey and the Turkish people, who are really friendly. We now have quite a few Turkish friends, and they are helping me to learn their lanugage.
We started to rent out home out to holiday makers a few months after purchasing it, and quickly learned that "Customers always come first"
We hope you enjoy your stay in our home, and recommend it to your friends, the same as we do!
