Air conditioned rooms and double glazing
As previously stated our apartment enjoys stunning views of the peninsula and sea as it is at the top of the development. As a result it is approached via a number of steps or short, steep hill which may make it unsuitable for the less mobile. There is , however, ample car parking space directly outside the apartment and throughout the site.
As we are on the first floor ,young children will need constant supervision whilst using the balcony area.

NB - On our visit in May 2014 we found the independently run café bar to be closed and on making further enquiries were advised that the owner is trying to sell or find a tenant to run the café. Unfortunately we do not therefore know if it will be open in 2014.
The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
The Bodrum Peninsula is one of the most beautiful parts of Turkey's Turquoise Coast. There are numerous small fishing villages and resorts around the coast and many beaches to choose from both with and without watersports. Ferry trips to the Greek island of Kos can be made from Bodrum
Further afield you can visit Ephesus, the largest archaeological site in the world, the stunning pools at Pamukkale, the royal rock tombs at Dalyan, and the temple of Apollo at Didim.
Yalikavak is a traditional Turkish fishing village on the northern (quieter and less commercialised) coast of the Bodrum Peninsula that has welcomed the onset of sympathetic modern conveniences.. At present a little known area, it is a perfect retreat for the more discerning traveller, looking for a quieter holiday but in easy reach of the hustle and bustle of Bodrum. Yalikavak is renowned for it's superb sunsets, unspoilt shorelines and sparkling clean seas. It is located just 10 miles from Bodrum town and used to be a fishing and sponge divers village. The relaxed atmosphere makes it the perfect resort for those who want to experience the "real Turkey", providing authentic local life at reasonable prices. It is very pleasant to stroll along the promenade in the evening experiencing the traditional small harbour with it's numerous restaurants offering the freshest seafood or take in the more glamorous feel of the new marina. The village hosts a popular clothing and food market once a week on a Thursday and a flea market on the last Sunday of the month. The newly built Palmarina in Yalikavak has brought new visitors and a sleek, sophisticated new image. The 450 berth marina offers its guests a number of small exclusive shops, cafés and restaurants along with a small supermarket. It also offers a Cipriani restaurant, a Billionaires Club and private beach. It often hosts a "super yacht" or two!
Bodrum is a popular, busy, holiday resort. This bustling town attracts a diverse mix of visitors who stroll along its long palm-lined waterfront, while elegant yachts fill the marina. The evenings in Bodrum cater for all tastes from relaxing in one of the many restaurants or cafes, dining on fresh seafood and other Aegean specialties, to some of the best clubs in Europe which keep going until dawn! Our property offers the best of both worlds - close to Bodrum if you want a busier nightlife but a great escape from the noise and bustle during the day.
A visit to Aqua Park Dedeman - (15 minute drive from the apartment) - is popular with children and adults alike!
Don't miss the experience of shopping in Turgutreis market - (15 minutes drive from apartment) - every Saturday there is a large - noisy! - market selling vegetables, fruit, spices, nuts, bedding and the more touristy offerings of handbags, "Gucci"(!) watches, belly dancing outfits, fake designer clothing and turkish delight. Many sellers offer the "Best Asda price" and be prepared to take part in some friendly bartering!
Other popular places to visit within an easy drive or dolmus ride of the apartment include Rabbit Island at Myndos - where you paddle out at low tide to the island inhabited by a number of rabbits, Gumbet for a more touristy resort with water sports and Bitez for great sunbathing on the most luxurious sunbeds, water sports and a gently sloping beach.

"Lovely apartment in peaceful location"
Great little apartment in very peaceful setting. Apartment equipped with everything that you might need. Lovely pool area with drinks/ice creams and snacks available poolside.
Steep hill up to apartment - but worth it for the fantastic view.
10min flat walk into Yalikavak which has plenty of restaurants to choose from.
Very easy and pleasant transaction with the owners.
