Villa overview - owner's description
I fell in love with Yalikavak when I first visited and chose to buy a house on an established and well cared for Turkish site rather than one of the new build complexes because I wanted to live in the real Turkey - somewhere that's occupied year roun rather than just the few short summer months and then deserted in winter.
If you want to enjoy a relaxing Turkish holiday away from hordes of Tourists, but only a stones throw from plenty of activity, this house is ideal for you. The town has seen significant growth in the last couple of years, with a great Marina complex and many more shops and restaurants, but it's still a much gentler pace and different vibe to Bodrum or any of the larger resorts. The new developments have seen hotel prices treble in the last few years but I have kept the price as low as possible, making at a great option for a wonderful affordable self catering holiday in an area which is massively in demand.
Just half an hour's lovely walk or five minute bus ride into the town centre and main beaches although there is a really useful new supermarket at the bottom of the drive, a great little beach ten minutes walk away, This one is a quiet local beach, with a swimming pontoon and fantastic little (very cheap) cafe which you can see from the house. It's mostly used by Turks, and a nice change from the busier and pricier main town beaches. The coast road walk down to the town is lined with great seafront restaurants.
Early check in or late check out can be arranged and the English speaking agent will meet you at the property to give you keys and show you around (or pick you up from the airport) at a time to suit you.
A welcome basket of food can be provided upon request for your arrival to make night arrivals pleasanter, and will be provided with my compliments or stays of more than two weeks.

Yamacevler 13 is a superbly relaxing, comfortable house, fantastic value and ideal for people looking for a complete break and the feeling of really having got away from the English crowds. If tranquillity and relaxation in a friendly place with your own space sounds good to you, this should suit you perfectly. Its designed and decorated as my own home from home (rather than cheap plastic tourist fittings, or the usual Turkish alternative, brand new mass-built glitz) and you'll notice the difference.
Its beautifully furnished and comfortably sleeps five, (in proper beds - not cramped onto sofa beds as with some villas) but is also perfect for a couple. Two terraces mean you can enjoy the shade downstairs, and a built in barbecue, or full sun and spectacular views upstairs, with a second table and chairs, cushions and sun loungers.
Downstairs two sofas, TV DVD, Stereo, fully equipped kitchen, breakfast bar etc mean that you will be comfortable and relaxed even if you don't want to go out and enjoy the sun. Or (if its early or late season) when it very occasionally rains! There is air conditioning and heating, and in high summer, the north facing hillside enjoys wonderful sea breezes, keeping the house comfortable even in the hottest weather.
Although there are all-inclusive hotels in the area, and lots of wonderful restaurants, really good self catering accommodation is amazing value.
By choosing such a lovely private villa where you can actually enjoy living you will often be tempted to relax and enjoy the stunning views, to sit on the terrace with a glass of wine at sunset, and cook your own food, making the most of the wonderful fresh foods which you can buy in town (keep an eye open for fabulous aubergines, tomatoes, salads, cheeses and fruits at market on Thursdays), rather than going out to eat.
Tea, coffee, sugar, olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper etc are all provided free of charge for your use, and a welcome basket of food (cheese, tomatoes, eggs, yoghurt, cucumber, etc) can be ready for you on arrival if requested.
On the other hand- most people enjoy going out to eat at local restaurants at least a couple of times. Its part of the fun of being on holiday! With Yamacevler's great location just a fifteen minute walk to the best waterfront restaurants you can enjoy the best of both worlds, save a fortune, and really enjoy those evenings when you do dress up and go out to eat.
PLEASE NOTE: Although I have had to mark 'car recommended', to fit the site's definitions, this is only because they have taken no account of any public transport. It is "more than a fifteen minute walk to a 'large selection' of shops, and beaches", maybe twenty five to thirty minutes. However, if you don't want to walk, it's only about five minutes on the dolmus bus which goes past the gate every 10 minutes in summer and costs about 80 pence and only about £5 if you prefer a taxi. A taxi from the airport costs about £27. I have NEVER hired a car, and don't think it's necessary unless you're infirm.
Also, the Marina has been massively (and very expensively) expanded to become one of the biggest in Europa,. with all the facilities that entails, including cocktail bars, beach clubs and expensive shops, so there is now a much more lively option for those looking for more sophisticated shopping and night life.

We had a wonderful holiday in Yamacevlar villa. It is bright, very well equipped and extremely comfortable. The views are outstanding especially from the roof terrace and although slightly out of the main town this did not cause a problem as there is a regular dolmus service or a taxi is cheap. The water refill service is very efficient as is the rubbish collection service. The villa is very good value for money and I would recommend to friends and return ourselves in the future. If you are looking for a quiet residential area with a traditional turkish house this is the villa to book.
Chose completely the wrong property- I was looking for a brand new build with pool, and was disappointed with this homey property.
Such a nice change to be away from the usual holidaymaker accomodation and in a more natural surroundings.
The house is sweet and comfortable and quite well located a hundred yards to get the dolmus bus at the bottom of the hill, wand quite walkable distance to town and beach.
It is the best place to rest for people who prefer a quiet holiday away from the busy resorts. The villa is wonderful, the beach is with few people, the neighbors are respectable Turks. Weve been there for 3 weeks, with two children, 7 and 3.
And if you want good fish restorants and activities, you can find it nearby, in Yalikavak, just 5 minutes to drive.
Well keep the only fond memories and that Turkish summer will be warming us during our long cold winter.
just got back from a wonderful two weeks at this villa, the house was gorgeous full of charcter, i was very surprised when we arrived as the villa is so much bigger than we expected excellent value for money. the villa is in a gorgeous location with wonderfull views. we brought our two kids aged 8 and 11 and they loved it, they played every evening with the local children who lived in the complex. staying in this villa gave us time as a family to really relax. we didnt have a car but to honset we didnt need one as the local domas is right on your door step.. you will love the town full of gorgeous restaurants and places to sit and watch the world go by. i would highly recomened this villa we hope to get back next year.

This beautiful villa is suitable for people who are looking for a civilised, charming, friendly holiday in the comfort of a beautiful private home, rather than a purpose built site for English tourists! The complex is mostly home to Turkish people, so its ideal to escape. There is no pool on the complex, but the closest beach is just five minutes walk, the town and main beaches are a thirty minute stroll, an 80p dolmush (bus) ride (or £4 taxi ride) and the many hotels nearby will be happy to let you use their pools if you're buying a drink at their bar. A dozen superb fish restaurants line the coastal road down to the town- as little as ten minutes walk from the house.
