The Villa

We bought this villa when we fell in love with the area, the food, the people and the pace of life. We come back several times every year, and hope that our guests will appreciate the home-from-home feel of the villa.

General: Air-conditioning in the living room and all three bedrooms keeps the villa cool, even on the hottest day or night.

Mosquito nets on every window and sliding door keep the bugs at bay, allowing open windows at night.

There is a ground floor covered terrace furnished with a round oak table and six oak padded "director" style chairs, and a spacious sun terrace on the top floor with four chairs and a small table.

The villa has 1 fully tiled bathroom with shower cubical (no bath) and 2 loos for your parties use.

Sleeping: The villa comprises 3 bedrooms 1 double, 1 twin and a single with a pull out full size double bed. This gives room for up to 6 people. Bed linen and luxury towels are provided for your use. Each bed is of orthopaedic quality, including the pull out double: no bad backs here!

The music system will play CDs, radio and has connections for MP3 players (not ipods), and a slot for SD and MMC cards. The villa is also stocked with a wide variety of DVDs for children and adults, a selection of CDs, books and games.

Eating & living: There is room for 6 in the living room and 6 on the dining area on the ground floor covered terrace.

To prepare food you will fin d a gas hob, an electric oven, a microwave, a large fridge & freezer, a kettle, a toaster. You will also find dishwasher, washing machine, outside clothes drier, an iron and ironing board.

Small items include a large Bodum caffitiere, a citrus fruit juicer, chef quality kitchen knifes with sharpening steel and two "waiters friend" wine bottle openers. There is a bottled water dispenser in the kitchen, The bottled water man visits the site every day - a new 20 litre bottle costs about £(GBP)3.

Outside there is a kettle barbecue.

For your peace of mind, there is a small safe. Each family sets its own unique code for their stay. There are security grills on the windows.

As a little extra to our guests, you have the use of a Turkish mobile phone . Our local agent (Akin) will give you the phone with the villa keys, The phone has 100 minutes paid for at the start of the season and can be topped up easily at local phone shops.. The phone is pre-loaded with local contact numbers such as the the 24 hour Turkish pizza restaurant and the local taxi rank - and of course Akin's number.

At the start of each season we stock the cupboards with dishwasher tablets, washing powder, washing up liquid, toilet rolls, nappy bags, bin bags, salt, pepper, sugar, olive oil & vinegar. These may run out during the season and are not guaranteed. We encourage a "leave some for the next man" attitude. If something runs out. we hope that the guest will replace whatever it is.

Optional Extras Please note that the welcome packs are offered by our very helpful local agent. If your flight allows you to travel via one of the many market shops, you can stock up on the way to the villa.

The Area
The villa is centrally located approximately 10 minutes walk to the beach and 10 minutes drive to the center of Turgurteis where you will find many restaurants, bars and shops. The walk along the beach from the villa to Turgutreis is lovely, and takes about 30 minutes.

Car Hire The cost of car hire is reasonable, approximately GPB25 per day. Around GBP300 for 14 days. If you like to keep your costs down the Dolmus (small taxi-cum-buses) are frequent and cheap. GBP1 will get you to most places on the peninsular.

The town of Turgutreis is situated at the furthest tip of the historic Bodrum Peninsula with fantastic sunsets overlooking a view of pretty islands on the horizon. Named after the famous admiral, Turgutreis is a stroll town in its own right and combines a compact town center with several long sandy beaches. Wind surfers favour this part of the coast, as the winds are generally stronger.

The Bodrum Peninsula is small and it is very easy to travel to all the other small towns. For those who are adventurous the area has an excellent bus service called dolmus. These are new reliable mini- buses and offer services all day to Gumusluk and Bodrum with connections to all other towns often for less than a pound.

Gumusluk, a favourite peninsula village, is close by. Its position on the site of the ancient city of Myndos has ensured that no large scale development has been allowed. Gumusluk is a fine place for snorkelling, in the calm waters of the sheltered bay. Various sunken ruins can be found here and there is a causeway, sometimes above water, sometimes below, to Rabbit Island where almost tame rabbits run around. To one side of the headland is a sandy beach with beach side restaurants and sun beds 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.

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 the combination of daytime activities, tranquil bays, beaches & villages to enjoy and the Bodrum nightlife.

Further Information
Day Trips There are many good local firms offering day trips these are of course open to the independent traveller.

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.

Lovely place to stay and the pool and setting is perfect. The Yelkin hotel can get a bit noisy at night, but it didnt bother us. Really great place to relax and unwind. Do go to gumusluk for fish restaurants and the nearby pide (pizza)place us fantastic

We had a fantastic holiday at this property which we consider to be excellent value for money. Communication with the owner prior to departure was very good and included an information pack and shopping list. The owner arranged our transfer from the airport with the very professional Akin. He was waiting to greet us with one of his drivers, and we were driven to the property in a comfortable van equipped with age-appropriate child restraints for our four children (as arranged). On arrival in the evening we were pleased to see our shopping waiting for us and even more pleased to see that the property was very clean and conformed to the owners description. The next morning we were able to appreciate the quality of the pool and the outside space in front of the villa. This space provides ample shade, with a second area which has the sun all day. The villa itself was equipped with everything we could possibly need, and very soon we felt totally at home in the property. At the end of our second week I was concerned that the pool was not filtering correctly and this was leading to an accumulation of debris. I contacted the owners local agents, Jo and Carl (who, by the way, are extremely professional and really nice people to boot) and they immediately took the necessary steps to ensure that the problem was resolved within 24 hours (on a public holiday). I was assured by another owner present at the time that this was an exceptional occurrence, and I mention it in this review simply because the quality of the customer service we received after voicing my concern was comparable to the service you get in the best of hotels. The owner and her agents really take their clients comfort and well-being very seriously, and I was truly impressed with this aspect throughout our stay. Parents with very small children should be aware that the property is over three levels, with a bedroom on the second floor, and travel safety gates will not fit the stairs (we put a gate in the doorway of the bedroom at night). A word on the location of the villa: a car is not necessary (the six of us had no problem with the "Dolmus" minibuses which run north to Gumusluk and south to Turgutreis from the main road, just a two-minute walk from the villa. A stroll to the village of Kadikalesi takes about 10 minutes, and its about the same to the beach (longer with small children!). The villa is in a semi-rural location, and some of the roads around the property are not the prettiest (some litter, half-finished houses with overgrown gardens) but this is fairly typical for Turkey and does not detract unduly from the overall charm of the location. There was occasional noise carried by the wind from beachfront resorts, but generally not beyond midnight (we slept with the windows open as were not keen on aircon). I have no hesitation in recommending this property, and would seriously consider returning for a further stay.

The best thing about this villa was the outside area, which is so lovely and peaceful. The villa is in a quiet spot, but it is so easy to access the more lively town of Turgutries or the place that stole our hearts - Gumusluk! It is also a 10 minute stroll to the beach or into the quiet village of Kadikalesi which has a few restaurants and a few shops for basic provisions. The sunsets are truly spectacular and the "Bodrum" breeze kept the temperature very pleasant in June. We appreciated the extra little touches that the owners had arranged inside the villa, like the extra crockery, basic cupboard store items and, of course, the dishwasher! We were certainly sad to leave!

Not our 1st stay and wont be our last. Lovely secure villa in peaceful surroundings, we were fortunate to have the place to ourselves most of the time. looking forward to coming back
Stayed Friday 14 September 2012
On arrival very relieved to find that the villa was as good, or better, than it appeared in the advert. It was attractive, modern, comfortable, clean and well equipped. Manager and agent both English speaking and helpful. Being late in season we found some local restaurants and shops closed or providing reduced menus and services. Cant understand why it is considered late season as weather was perfect, but maybe to do with UK/European school holidays? If wanting to sightsee a car would be helpful, but dolmus service is frequent and cheap. We just wanted to stay put and relax, so ideal for us. Suggest updat e of outside photograph as trees and garden now more mature. Lovely pool only metres from doors (unfenced, so might be an issue with a toddler). We loved it.
Stayed Thursday 09 August 2012
Lovely villa, very clean and very well equipped with all the crockery, utensils etc you could ever need. The swimming pool is spotless and very well attended to by the "Poolman" Karl who is extremely helpful as are the gardens that he tends. The villa is within easy walking distance of the beach and the town of Turgutreis. Transport links via the dolmus are very good, but we hired a car to enable us to go under our own steam. I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa.
Stayed Wednesday 11 July 2012
This was a superb holiday. The villa is very well equipped, beautifully laid out and the location is very quiet and secluded. The agents were really helpful and everything was in excellent order in and around the property. We enjoyed the privacy and because we went ahead of UK holidays, we had the pool to ourselves for half of the ten days! Nevertheless, as there are only six villas around the pool, it will never be overcrowded. We will definitely go back and recommend it to friends as it was the most relaxing holiday we have ever had. The children didnt want to leave and we have all fallen in love with Turkey and the Turkish people, who were all friendly and helpful.
Stayed Saturday 02 June 2012
We rented the villa for 10 days at the beginning of June 2012 a great time of year, as the weather was hot but bearable. The villa was very clean, comfortable and spacious, and well equipped. The children especially enjoyed the pool, as it was surprising warm and pleasant. The best thing about the villa for us was the mosquito protection on all the windows. We left Turkey without a bite between us and since we’re a family full of allergies it was such a blessing. Turgutreis is a great location not too busy, a little rustic, and a perfect base for access to the beach, to shop and to explore the area without the need for a car. I recommend it!
Stayed Monday 11 July 2011
We had a wonderful holiday. Your holiday villa in the Turgutreis is spacious, clean and very comfortable.. Everything was perfect and very well organized. Great family holiday for all ages and safe for toddlers too. Family sized clean swimming pool was perfect . 1st villa holiday in Turgutreis for us and it was fantastic! We will definitely go back again ...

Outstanding modern Villa, very clean & comfortable, everything we needed, nice well maintained pool, peaceful location, would stay again
Stayed Monday 02 May 2011
Lovely, well maintained comfortable property in good location. Godd sized pool, also well maintained. Plenty of space around the pool for the 6 properties on the site. Close to beaches & local dolmus service. Pleasant walking in the area, mainly on the flat. Very comfortable beds, lovely large towels, plenty of domestic equipment for self catering, all in all a lovely place.
Stayed Friday 28 August 2009
The villa was excellent, as was the standard of cleanliness on arrival. The kitchen contained everything we needed and we especially enjoyed having a barbeque and eating outside on the veranda. We all enjoyed the swimming pool, which was well kept and cleaned regularly. Our transport from and to the airport was good and on time. We had a wonderful holiday and would recommend this villa.
Stayed Saturday 08 August 2009
New mozzie screens were fantastic, coupled with bug plugs I got more bites in the UK than I did in Turkey. Villa and pool is great - 2 other families made for great entertainment for the kids - team volleyball in the pool - fab! Leaving me to tan with my books... Great fish restaurant in nearby Kadikalesi on the beach within easy strolling distance if you are carless. We had a car which meant we could do more BBQs at the villa as shopping was easier. Carrefour do cooked hot chickens for takeouts as well in Turgutreis. Definately recommend this villa as a fab family holiday, we had 3 kids aged 9, 13 and 16 and evryone had enough space. Brilliant.

Excellent, well maintained property. Just as described on the website. All the locals were very friendly and helpful. A couple of good value for money restaurants nearby. Need a car if want to do some exploring outside of the local bus route.First time visit to Turkey, I would recommend this area and this villa.
Stayed Saturday 23 September 2006
The villa is equipped to very high standards and the grounds & pool are very well maintained. The collection & drop off service is effiecent & promt and the driver (Akin) is friendly & helpful. The information pack provided in the villa is informative & useful, particularly if you've never been to this part of Turkey before. During your stay you must try the Dolmus bus services, they're an experience not to be missed! I would, without the slightest hint of reservation, recommend this villa and the service provided and both myself & my sister have already made plans to return next year. 10/10
Stayed Saturday 02 September 2006
We had a fantastic time, the villa was very well equipped. Lovely relaxing by the pool on the very comfortable sun beds. Plenty to do in the surrounding towns and the people were great. Lovely meals at the Monalisa restaurant in Turgetries. Would definitaly go back.
Stayed Monday 14 August 2006
The Villa was really well furnished and equipped and exceeded our expectations. All the rooms were spacious and clean and the owners have obviously gone to the trouble to provide everything you could require including games, DVDs books etc. The villa is in a quiet location within easy walking distance of the beach and also the lively town of Turguetreis. The swimming pool was excellent, large, clean and usually empty. We had an absolutely wonderful holiday and would highly recommend the villa and the area to other people. The accomodation offered perfect opportunities to relax in peace and quiet but there was also ample opportunity for sight seeing visits, with instructions to book excursions helpful and easy to follow. We are already planning a return visit!
Stayed Monday 24 July 2006
We came for a quiet 'get away from it all' break. the villa is very well appointed - both inside and out. Everyone we met has been welcoming, friendly and helpful. All the arrangements were as promised. The infomation booklet was very useful. It was our first visit to Turkey and we would recommend the area and the villa, verdict 10/10
Stayed Monday 17 July 2006
This holiday was by far the best we have had. The villa was stunning. It was very well decorated and had a lovely homely feel. We spent our whole week there, by the fantastic pool which was cleaned every day, along with our sun loungers ready for the mornings. You couldn’t ask for anything more with lots of games, books, music and DVD’s which kept us all entertained and very relaxed. The villa had a very helpful information pack which enabled us to find a cheap and friendly taxi service for our shopping trips. Although we didn’t see too much of Turkey we would recommend the villa to everyone. It’s beautiful and we will definitely be going back! Thank you for a wonderful holiday.
Stayed Wednesday 28 June 2006
Thanks you for your email. Yes, I would book again and yes, we had a good holiday. Thank you for all the information that you provided and thanks especially for all the wonderful facilities provided at your villa. They were second to none and I personally enjoyed the range of novels. I also loved the scented nappy bags! That was a most thoughtful touch. The sun shone every day and the pool was ready and cleaned every morning. The sunsets were marvellous affairs and we had the option of so many places to eat it was hard to choose. Taxis to and from Tugutreis were easy to find and cheap. For me, the only downside was that I suffered a bad reaction to some mosquito bites I got along the shore one day and I ended up having to have one lanced to stop infection spreading. But the other [male] members of our family all loved the sun and the villa and were delighted that we had decided to choose it. Thanks again for your enquiry and for letting us have the opportunity to rent your wonderful villa. If all your other visitors have as good a time as we did, then you will have a lot of satisfied customers!
Stayed Tuesday 02 August 2005
The villa is lovely, well equiped and decorated throughout. Carl and Jo were very friendly and helpful as was Akin, a turkish taxi driver come font of local knowledge. The villa management use him when booking airport transfer to the villa and we used him several times after that. we were a family of 7, so the bedrooms were a squeeze but we knew that as this is a 6 bed villa. the living area both inside and out were just right, homely but not cluttered. The swimming pool is wonderful and as we were there in July, this was well used to cool us down in the summer heat! the beach at Turgutreis is nicer than the beach at kadkalesi and is a short ride on the frequent Dolmuss ( local bus). we used a taxi to do the big food shopping trips, its about £8 each way.we all had a fantastic time and would definately use this villa again in the future. I would recommend this villa to friends.
Stayed Tuesday 02 August 2005
This is an excellent place to stay with a fab pool and near Turgutreis without being TOO close. Villa is very well kitted out and the gardens and terrace are a delight. Hire a car to get the best out of the peninsula as there are many places to go see - but the dolmus [local buses] are fine otherwise. Must go - Gumusluk for the Fish restaurants Turgutreis on Sat for the market Bodrum for the castle with the marine archeology displays
Stayed Tuesday 02 August 2005
The house was really comfortable and spacious. The utilities were new and of a very good quality. The apartment was tastefully furnished with lots of thoughtful touches like the CDs and DVDs. Cooking was a pleasure due to the quality of the kitchen and the local produce. Eating out was also easy, well-priced and of a really good quality.The bigger bedroom has plenty of space for two and the smaller one has ample space. The roof terrace adds to the choices for privacy, eating and sunbathing. The pool is a good size and the area around it is well maintained.In fact, the attention from the locals to our needs was pitched just right. Walking from the house to the beach and the town was a pleasure and the local bus service is impressive, friendly and cheap. I intend to return and I highly recommend this.
Stayed Tuesday 02 August 2005
Villa contents/facilities were excellent and very clean. We loved it - and had a great holiday. My only comment would be I would have appreciated a recommendation to hire a car as at times we felt a little bit remote. However overall the villa/pool etc were excellent. Thanks for a great holiday.
We liked the house and found it very practical. The garden and the pool were in very good condition. The location is great and you can walk to a lot of places, either restaurants or the next bigger town. If you like jogging you can start from the house and run along the beach promenade towards Turgutreis. Perfect!
Absolutely wonderful stay at the villa. Quiet area, villa was extremely spacious very well appointed and really, you want for nothing in terms of what this property offers. Location is good, very close to the village and town. Beaches very close to the villa (within walking distance) We visited Gumusluk a lot as we loved the ambience and quite artisan feel, beautiful restaurants and very friendly locals. Driving around this area afforded spectacular views & some of the sunsets were absolutely breathtaking! We would highly recommend a stay at this stunning villa-superb!
This was our 2nd visit to the property and although there had been major building projects within the vicinity since our last visit we were not disappointed. The villa had been improved with the addition of mosqutio blinds and extra security had also been added. The villa itself was as we remembered, clean, airy and set in pleasant surroundings.
Great property in a pretty location handy for the beach and buses to Turgetreis. It was everything we had expected and just right for a relaxing holiday. The arrival and departure arrangements were easy and flexible, everyone we came across was friendly and welcoming and despite the weather being less than perfect we had a lovely time. Thanks very much!
We really enjoyed our holiday in this villa! The location was brilliant, nice and quiet and pretty but within walking distance of the busier resort of Turgutreis. The pool and gardens are lovely and the villa is beautifully furnished, very clean and comfortable and has everything you could wish for. Always the photos on the internet look far nicer than in reality, but not in this case the photos dont do it justice. Would definately like to holiday here again!
Me and my family spent a wonderful 2 weeks in Vickis great villa in Kalakadesi Turkey. Everything about the villa was good, from the equipment to the decorations. The position of the villa was excellent, close to all facilities, the pool was excellent, clean and well kept. overall we all had a wonderful time and this was due to everYthing being thought about in our villa. Thank you so much for such a great stay.
This holiday was extremely relaxing and successful-with smooth transfers and excellent friendly help and advice from the Mandalinci Hotel agents.The villa far exceeded our expectations,being clean,superbly and tastefully furnished, and well-equipped.We spent a lot of time relaxing, grounds were pretty and well-kept, pool was large and clean,and peaceful surroundings all added to a wonderful atmosphere. Advice from the folder in the villa was really helpful and we ventured on a lovely boat trip from Turgatreis and a trip to a Turkish bath.A superb holiday, we would definitely recommend and return.
the house is lovely - light and spacious with ethnic touches. It is also very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The house is in a quiet location and set in lovely landscaped gardens with a good-sized swimming pool. A short walk takes you to the main road where you can pick up a dolmus to take you to Gumusluk, Turtegreis or Bodrum. The beach and local shops are also within easy reach. I can recommend this property for a comfortable and relaxing holiday in a lovely setting.
