Golden Sunset Residence Bodrum
Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
An amazing place to be!! (Please see reviews, they describe the holiday home and location better than I can!). Built in 2007, this is a villa like property on 2 floors with all 3 bedrooms overlooking sea, and 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 in this league. Enjoy breakfast on the terrace or small private lawn. 50m away is a relaxing sheltered swimming pool overlooking the Aegean Sea. You can walk about 500m to the sandy beach below with friendly restaurant in idyllic location. (At peak times, mainly July/Aug use of beach sunbeds etc may be restricted, However the restaurant beach area is free for all to use). Yalikavak is the main resort 5km by car or Dolmus bus, with a marina, and a comprehensive array of individual shops. Open all year as popular with locals. 20 minutes further you can enjoy the delights of Bodrum town. Or explore the Peninsula - there is so much to see!! This property has broad appeal and has been enjoyed by guests from Scandinavia, Belgium, Holland, Bulgaria, Turkey, Australia, Ireland and the UK.

Faces South West, so sun all afternoon and evening. Gated area, just beyond Police Station. Several owners live on site or have lengthy stays. 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. New beach facilities with restaurant within walking distance below. 500m.
Car hire at approx 80 lira £25 per day via agent. Transfers too! Or book online.
Smokers Ok if outside and kept clean.
The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Something for everyone here - sandy beaches to the south, and south west, ancient history, sailing and yachting, golf not so far away, and restaurants on the beach. Sunny right through to November, ideal Autumn holiday. Mini buses (Domus), take you everywhere. But car hire is excellent way of seeing the peninsula. Fantastic hypermarkets too, with everything!
The Bodrum Peninsula - Aegean coast
On the Bodrum Peninsula buildings are not permitted to be built more than 2 stories high, and there are no buildings higher than 3 stories in the whole Peninsula. This tends to make the area look particularly attractive. Most of the buildings are white washed cubes, similar to those in the Greek Islands. This is because this part of Turkey used to belong to Greece and some of the Greek Islands used to belong to Turkey. As you can imagine, there is a lot of history around the area.
As well as Bodrum, there are some really picturesque areas to visit around the peninsula with some stunning sunsets!
Bodrum town itself is huge in terms of shops and restaurants and night life. Ideal for visiting whereas Yalikavak is ideal to be staying - so peaceful after a day or night on Bodrum!
Yalikavak is fast becoming a popular tourist destination with its authentic villages and high class international marina. Yalikavak is ideal for people who want the facilities of a bigger resort but not the non stop night-life.
Yalikavak is one of the greenest locations on the Bodrum peninsula and nature has been generous in terms of granting it an amazing sea and coastline, together with an endless breeze that cools this unique place even during the hottest of summer days.
Windmills are one of the symbols of Yalikavak. When you arrive at the location where the windmills stand you will be greeted with an enchanting panorama as far as the eye can see. Above all when the sun sets over Yalikavak it's the perfect time to enjoy a meal at one of the many restaurants that line the harbour and sea front of Yalikavak.
It's enough to take just a short tour around Yalikavak to realise that it's the best of all round destination of the Bodrum peninsula and well deserves the title.......
"A JEWEL IN THE HEART OF THE AEGEAN" Lots more about Yalikavak - a preferred alternative to Bodrum?
Yalikavak, 18 km away from Bodrum centre on the north western tip of the Bodrum Peninsula, has grown in size over recent years, but remains still very much a place where the locals welcome holiday makers with open arms. The permanent inhabitants of Yalikavak number around 6,800 people.
Yalikavak is becoming ever more popular as an alternative resort to Bodrum. The small harbour is surrounded by restaurants and bars, and while there is the occasional disco bar, the general atmosphere is quiet, unhurried and relaxed, yet further along the shoreline is a new sophisticated Marina.
Approaching Yalikavak from Bodrum you cannot help but notice the stunning panoramic view of Yalikavak Bay. This fertile coastal region is ideal for sailing and all water sports and attracts many foreign yachts to the Marina and old harbour that once sheltered mainly fishing boats.Yalikavak is a vibrant harbour town at the northern end of Bodrum Peninsula. It has a beach, a Thursday market and enough cafes and restaurants to satisfy locals and holidaymakers alike. There are a number of supermarkets where you can shop for those essentials for your Turkey property. A restored 300 year old windmill sits in the middle of a pedestrian area of cobbled streets.
Yalikavak is ideal for those who want the facilities of the big resorts without the non-stop nightlife. A number of restaurants line the harbour front. The area is renowned for its superb sunsets which you can enjoy from the terrace of your villa along with stunning Aegean Sea views. This development is just 200 metres from a golden sandy beach and close to the town centre; this Turkey property has great rental potential.
Yalikavak has a very good local transport system and is just 17km from Bodrum town. The local mini-bus (dolmus) ride from Yalikavak to Bodrum is to be recommended for the spectacular views en-route. Bodrum is the site of the Halicarnassus Mausoleum. You can see St Peter's Castle and experience the lively town centre with its array of shops, restaurants and sophisticated nightlife. You can take one of the many boat trips from the harbour including those to the Greek Island of Kos.
The recently built Yalikavak Marina has brought new visitors to the town, in particular yachting enthusiasts. There is also a new golf facility in Bodrum, Vita Park Golf. There is a currently a great deal of investment in the area making this an ideal time to buy property in Bodrum.
Fishing & Seafood
Yalikavak still supports a thriving fishing industry and the restaurants around the picturesque harbour display a wide selection of fresh fish every day. The town is known for its excellent seafood restaurants - try Sait, you won't be disappointed.
Yalikavak has a huge selection of restaurants to suit all tastes.
Shopping & Market
There are many shops in the traffic free centre, selling local wares and tourist items.
Every Thursday there is a colourful weekly market split in 2 halves. Clothes, textiles and traditional Turkish wares on one side, and the other with fruit, vegetables, great choices of olives, herbs and spices.
Just a few minutes walk along the shoreline from the centre of Yalikvak is the new Marina. The Marina is home to many large yachts and is visited by yachts from all over the world in summer. It has stylish shops and several restaurants and cafes, plus a seaside 2,500 seater Amphitheatre used for open air concerts and fashion shows during the summer months.
The main beach in Yalikavak is long and narrow and lined with a few restaurants. It is easy to sit back and not worry where your next drink or meal will come from! Yalikavak's beach is never busy and you won't be sandwhiched in amongst sun loungers. Away from the harbour end of town, the quieter the beach becomes. Yalikavak is always said to be a little cooler in the summer than other parts of the region due to the gentle offshore breezes. Whereas Bodrum is hot, in all respects, in summer.
Yalikavak is renowned for its superb sunsets and unspoilt shoreline. Its sparkling clean sea is one of the few remaining abodes of the endangered “Monachus Monachus” Mediterranean seals and therefore a protected area. In 2002 Yalikavak Bay was awarded the "Blue Flag" for its clean waters

"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.
