Our holiday home is situated within a small holiday village, just 15 minutes from Bodrum airport. The site is located on the Bodrum peninsula between Guvercinlik and Gulluk in a secluded quiet bay. Our apartment is ideal for families with 2 or 3 children but can accommodate up to 7 people. It is equally suitable for 1 or 2 couples.
The open plan living, dining and kitchen area has large glass sliding doors which lead onto the balcony which has beautiful views. The balcony is the perfect place to relax, eat and watch the sunset.
The fully equipped kitchen has a gas and electric hob, electric oven, extractor fan, kettle, cafetiere, washing machine, dishwasher and fridge freezer. We have provided some store cupboard items to start you off. All cleaning materials, washing powder and toilet paper are provided so all you need to buy is some food or eat out!
There is a family bathroom with a bath and shower over.
Cleaning & laundry - fresh bed linen and towels are provided. A washing machine is available for guests' use. The apartment will be cleaned on arrival and departure and for stays of two weeks or more a weekly clean is included. Should you wish a mid-week clean during your stay, this can be arranged for an additional charge - please contact us for costs. Please bring your own beach towels.
One bedroom has a double bed and the other bedroom has a double bed with a single bed above. Both bedrooms have large wardrobes with drawers, bedside tables and lamps. They are also equipped with fans and mosquito nets if are required.
Bodrum town is about 30 minutes away by car or you can take the Dolmus (minibus) which leaves every hour in peak season.
Why not start off the day by walking to the sea for a swim. Afterwards, if you are tired, then jump on a chauffeur driven golf buggy to our apartment and enjoy breakfast on the balcony, admiring the views. The balcony is furnished with a table and chairs to enable you to dine al fresco.
In the afternoon, relax by the pools, let the children make new friends at the Mini Club and sample the food and drink at the Cafe/Bar.
Have a late afternoon swim in the large 300m2 pool which is so warm as it captures the heat of the sun all day.
In the evenings play "Okey" or Backgammon in the Cafe area.
If you do not want to escape from emails and the internet then there is free wi-fi access in the Cafe area.
Both bedrooms and living room have uninterrupted sea views.
In the pools area the outdoor cafe is shaded should you wish to cool off and the indoor cafe area and gym have air conditioning!
The apartment can provide a convenient base from which to visit the many sights and attractions in the area.
We would recommend hiring a boat from Guvercinlik for the day and discover a secluded bay and swim in the crystal clear turquoise waters and enjoy the peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle.
Alternatively, there is a vast array of activities to do and sites to visit in Bodrum. Day trips are also possible to Ephesus, the largest archaeological site in the world and the stunning pools at Pamukkale although to make the most of your visit then an overnight stay might be a good idea. Also recommended is a trip to the royal rock tombs at Dalyan and the Temple of Apollo at Didim.
The complex has 24 hour security and all cars remain in the car park so that it is safe for children to walk about. Transport within the site, should you need it, is by chauffeur-driven golf carts.
Airport transfers available on request and cost approximately £20 each way.

The Turquoise Coast runs from Bodrum in the north to the city of Antalya in the south, a spectacular stretch of coastline, once the home of the Greek Lycian civilisation. The Turquoise Coast offers an alluring combination of beautiful scenery and ancient sites and the Aegean Sea ensures a mild year round climate, with long hot summers and short winters.
Bargyila is located near Guvercinlik and is ideally situated, being only 15 minutes from the airport and 35 minutes from Bodrum town centre. Guvercinlik is a fishing village and is about 10 minutes away by car or taxi and here you will find shops, supermarkets, post office, cash machine and an excellent weekly market on a Monday. Many a pleasant afternoon and evening can be spent at the restaurants and cafes by the sea front which are also excellent value and cheaper than Bodrum town.
Other local villages on the coast worth visiting for good restaurants are Bogazici and Gulluk and they are situated between the airport and Guvercinlik and are also about 10 to 25 minutes away.
You can travel around in a 'dolmus' which run more frequently through the summer. These are shared mini-buses and very cheap.
The ruins of the ancient city of Bargilya, Tuzla lake and the Vita Park Golf Resort are just 5 minutes away.
Bodrum Castle, built by the Crusaders overlooks the harbour and the International Karada Marina. The castle grounds include the Museum of Underwater Archaeology and host several cultural festivals throughout the year. In Bodrum you can also visit the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus which was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and the amphitheatre also hosts musical events.
For water fun then visit the Dedeman Aquapark in Ortakent. Or if you want to go further afield then take a day trip on the ferry to the Greek island of Kos. Or howabout going to Yalikavak to see the Windmills?
In Bodrum town there is also a lively nightlife. The old market is open seven days a week for clothes, shoes, leather goods and souvenirs.
