Description from manager
The villa is situated in an amazing place!! Typical quote: Just back from an amazing holiday. Villa even better than expected and the view was to die for!!' Built in 2007, this is a villa like property on 2 floors with all 3 bedrooms overlooking sea, and the Greek islands. You can hear the waves at night! This property is semi detached yet highly exclusive. Known as a 'Cardea' duplex, this has a very high satisfaction rating. Lovely homely feel. Many guests enjoy being 'in' as much as being out. The Bodrum peninsula has a good holiday atmosphere. There are a lot of properties around Bodrum, but few with these views. Enjoy breakfast on the terrace or small private lawn. 50m away you can find a relaxing sheltered swimming pool overlooking the Aegean Sea. You may also walk about 500m to the sandy beach below with a friendly restaurant in idyllic location. (At peak times, mainly July/Aug use of beach sunbeds etc may be restricted, however the restaurant beach area should be free for all to use, but access may be charged at 25TL - £3 per person at peak time).
The property is situated in a very safe area, with no evidence of 'risks' or other changes over the past 2-3 years or so, that may otherwise distract from a lovely holiday. Restaurants are all open, and are all very keen to provide a good service. Construction of new roads, holiday homes, and shops are in full swing in many areas providing a sense of prosperity and optimism.
Yalikavak is the main resort 20km from Bodrum. This is 5km from the property, either by car or Dolmus bus. You will find an old town area, lots of individual shops, supermarkets, and some classy shops around the marina area. You can of course explore the Bodrum Peninsula - there is so much to see!!
Locals use the cafes, shops and restaurants all year round, so that even out of season (April 2018), there is plenty of activity.
This property has broad appeal and has been enjoyed by guests from Scandinavia, Belgium, Holland, Bulgaria, Turkey, Australia, Ireland and the UK. Please note there is a charge of £80 for each booking if less than £395, capped at £395. This covers our agent’s costs of preparation, cleaning, admin, and for being available if need be. This may be added to the rental cost automatically when trying to book short stays, or out of season.
It is business as usual in this very pleasant holiday area, and Turkey is a very large country spanning a distance equivalent to Cornwall to Orkneys, plus another 300 miles.
Further details indoors
Air conditioning in all 3 bedrooms and living room/kitchen. Feels like a proper house or home, with the two floors, garden and with fantastic views out to sea! Very pleasant homely feel.

Further details outdoors

There is a large roof terrace above the 3rd bedroom, and balconies outside both upstairs bedrooms. Large sheltered shared swimming pool is about 50m away, You can park below the property. Access is via steps. Access is a little steep by road, and by safe steps with rails, so not ideal for invalids but no worst than stairs, or aeroplane steps. Flyscreens with all bedrooms, and living room. No children's play area, but there is a children's pool area. Nice gardens outside. Fairly quiet, so very relaxing especially with the sounds of the sea. Beach facilities with restaurant within walking distance below. 500m. Car hire at approx £25 per day via agent. Transfers too!

“Amazing villa, amazing views!”
Perfect big and clean villa with spectacular views over the islands and the sea. Nice pool, great location, perfect holiday. Thanks for all.
“Fantastic seaview and lovely house”
We rented this house for 11 days. Everything about the booking was just perfect, and the communication with owner just perfect. Nice and clean house with the most fantastic seavieaw. Everything is Nice and clean in the compound. Super pool area just 50 meters from house. You have an amazing view when you are swimming in the pool. Car is needed. Camel Beach 20 minuts by car is a wonderfull sandy beach an the Best beach We Found. You pay 50 TL each person, But you then get to eat and drink for this payment. The beach in Gundogan (10 minuts by car) is also Nice, But not as sandy as Camel Beach. The place is perfect for trips to Yalikavak (you must visit the new Marina), Bodrum and Gumusluk. We really enjoyed our holiday in this house and would love coming back again.
Having been to Yalikavak before I thought I knew where we were going to be staying. It was further out than my mind had told me, but this caused us no issues at all what so ever. I arrived with 3 of the children to stay for 2 weeks before my husband and eldest joined us for a further week. To be a woman alone here, caused us no problems, I felt safe, well looked after and happy. The Villa is great, helped by a second bathroom. My only negative observation, was having to use all three bedrooms, I took the downstairs bedroom as the protector- it was made up of two singles pushed together- it didn't ruin my holiday or put me off returning, I just would of preferred the double to be downstairs. The view is simply stunning, a short hilly walk takes you to the private beach, made up of locals and limited English people- gorgeous. I don't like the Brit abroad experience of English and beer everywhere- if that's what you are looking for this is not the location for you. I do not drive whilst in Turkey, I use the local Dolmus- easy, easy, easy. It stops every even hour outside the complex and every odd hour just up the road- it takes you in to the main town, you can easily hop over to another Dolmus to get to other locations- fairly priced, regular simple. It gives the kids another dimension to their holiday too. I would advise taking a photo of the front of the bus to remind you which one you need for your first few goes though! Back to the ~Villa, it was spacious clean and really nicely kept. The area is as said simply stunning so peaceful, view to die for. I made use of the washing machine and washing line as our stay was so long- I felt at home and would of happily stayed for the whole summer. Nothing not to like about the Villa, the area etc. A lot of negative views on holidaying somewhere like Turkey, but Yalikavak is so quiet and peaceful everybody is friendly and helpful, the town is not full of shops- Bodrum for that, which is a short Dolmus away. We did it a few times and had wonderful days out, but were happy to return to the peace of our villa. Our favourite hangout in the day if not at the local beach or pool was in Yalikavak at the surf shack, where the boys enjoyed paddle boarding, really chilled out atmosphere, they even got to be part of their promotional video. The local beach has a restaurant which is great for food and cheap. Plenty of local supermarkets - get a discount card on your first day it saves you loads. The Marina in Yalikavak is 'the St Tropez of Turkey', loads of mega yachts down there, allegedly famous peoples too- whatever its a visual experience, and some very expensive shops too. Walk along to the old town and that's where you find the within budget locations, surf shack, Dedes and the Secret garden- two of our favourite restaurants. All in all one of my best holidays ever and would without hesitation return to both Turkey and this Villa in particular.
Response from the manager Thank you so much for taking the time to submit a most interesting and informative review, especially at this busy time of year! It was great to hear you had a wonderful holiday, and good to hear how easy the Dolmus busses were, and you felt at home. This despite the negative press about Turkey. This reflects our own experience of being there recently, and we had no reason to be concerned with any security issues. Actually feels safer than being in an EU city! I liken this to a journalist going to Bodrum to report on such negative events - it would be a long wait to be involved in such events, and that is even if he/she tried to be in the 'right' place at the 'right' time! Thanks again for your review and for your booking. You would be most welcome another time. We can rearrange the beds too.
“Complete get away peace, quiet and beautiful views to wake up to”
Had one great week away with husband, older children and couple of friends six in total. Went for a total rest and getaway and thats just what we got, never been to Turkey before and for our first visit couldn't have picked a more perfect place and location. Felt rested and well fed all week, great food and beautiful marina in Yalikavak would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a lovely holiday. Please try the Turkish Breakfast at the little restaurant just on the sharp bend back down the hill called Zeytin Alti friendly staff and fresh produce 10/10. Also try Husband and Wife team in a little Restaurant called Paprika, Ahmet and his wife make the most lovely Monk Fish and great wine, atmosphere. Also Cardakli 10/10 these are based in the marina .All I can say is book and see for yourself Yalikavak superb holiday Wish I was still there !!!!!
“A great place to stay!”
The stunning view as we arrived was spectacular, and as we explored the property we found clean, excellent facilities. The bed was extremely comfortable, and made up for our arrival. We chose not to hire a car ( and as long as you are fit to climb the rather steep hill! ) the local Dolmus provided excellent transport. However a car would be an asset! As the week went on the ever-changing beautiful view never lost its appeal with its changing colours (gorgeous sunsets) and boats to watch. The owner was especially helpful, and even confirmed after we had finished our holiday that he had dealt with one or two minor problems we had, so they would be sorted ready for new arrivals!
“As close to perfect as you can get...........”
Well where do I start..... The property is fabulous and has everything you could possibly want, far outweighed our expectations from a holiday home, the uninterrupted sea views and sunsets spectacular. Every time we went out we wanted to get back to our balcony or the pool which also overlooked the sea. The beds were very comfortable, everything spotlessly clean and the owners are lovely genuine couple who do everything possible to make the stay perfect, they certainly went the extra mile, and can't wait to return to either this property in yalikavak, bodrum or one of their other properties
“Well equipped property in tranquil setting with amazing views”
Spent 8 days here September 2011. The views from the terrace are almost addictive - we had to tear ourselves away some days, and then when we did we found ourselves longing to get back! Property location is at the end of the development in a private and tranquil setting but totally secure. Shared pool was quiet on most days. The owner was really helpful to us with directions, organising car hire etc. And when we had a couple of minor issues whilst there he responded immediately
“Superb location with stunning views”
Property in excellent condition with everything required to have a great holiday. Balcony overlooking the ocean with sun the latter part of the day. Owners very helpful and efficient and the onsite representative extremely friendly and helpful too. Choice of beach (walk down steep hill) with bar and restaurant or pool. Pool quiet and relaxing. 10 minute bus to Yalikavak and 15 bus to Gumusluk. Buses come regularly and they are cheap. Good if you don't wish to hire a car. All in all, great place, great location and would thoroughly recommend.
