Sunny Aegean Views Penthouse
Penthouse | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
This Penthouse apartment has unobstructed views over the bay of Gulluk and its famous sunsets. The balcony is the focal point and the elevated position catches the cooling afternoon "Meltemi" breezes which originate from the Greek Islands. The 2 bedroom apartment, with satellite TV and now with FREE Wi-Fi, is fitted with ceiling fans and airconditioners in each room with a double sofa-bed in the living room. Another focal point is the large swimming pool and sunbathing area which also has views over Gulluk and the bay.
Flipflops are self catering apartments in a resort complex and is just a few minutes walk from the not crowded beaches of Gulluk. The apartments are only a stroll to the town centre, promenade and harbour area which offers great restaurants, bars and cafes. Flipflops is a great base for a romantic sunny holiday, a relaxing family vacation or a more active golf or boating break. There is a friendly on-site manager named Yusuf who speaks excellent English who will be able to help you with any tourist needs you may have. There is a mini-mart 2 minutes walk from Flipflops which stocks all conveniences and 3 other larger supermarkets within walking distance. There are several excellent inexpensive places to eat in Gulluk, lively bars, relaxing beach clubs and beaches. Gulluk is a very affordable place to stay as restaurants here charge about a quarter of the prices in Bodrum. The air-conditioned penthouses have big sun-terraces and are unrivalled for the sun, breezes and views.
The complex has a long swimming pool and a smaller children's pool and sun-lounges on a wide patio area, all overlooking the Bay of Gulluk. There is a large garden with picnic tables and a big outdoor Turkish oven for barbecues. Some snacks and refreshments can be purchased near the pool area. Bicycle rental is also available on-site.
Coast/Beach: Gulluk has several beaches and beach clubs. The nearest is Palm beach - about 700m from Flipflops. It offers sunbathing pontoons and refreshments. Fuego beach club has a good swimming area, pool tables, lunches, a huge bar and shaded lounges, table tennis and after dark becomes a night club.
Golf: It is an ideal winter golf break destination with cheap flights and only a short drive from Bodrum airport and 2 golf courses (offering 36 holes of golf) and mild weather. The golf courses are located within 20 minutes drive.
How to get there: Bodrum airport is only 10km from Gulluk, making this accommodation the easiest in the region to get to. There is a cheap air-conditioned local bus (Dolmus) that goes into Bodrum. The bus stop is 200 metres from Flipflops, in front of the mini-mart. From Bodrum, other buses can take you to other parts of the Bodrum peninsular. In Gulluk, there are several inexpensive boat trip options available. Many include lunch, music, beach volleyball, swimming and a mud clay beach for facial masks.
Supermarkets: There is a BIM supermarket about 200m from the apartment which is pretty well stocked - about the size of a Tesco Express. A further 5 or 6 minutes walk also brings you to Migros which is a huge supermarket which stocks everything you would need.

The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Gulluk is the gateway to the Turquoise Coast and the Bodrum Peninsular. It makes a great landing point because of its proximity to the airport meaning that after your flight you can be on the balcony or in the pool overlooking the sea after just a 10 minute drive. 35 mins by dolmus bus (bos stop is 200m from Flipflops) takes you south to the spectacular harbour of Bodrum with its magnificent Templar Castle. A 2 hour drive north from Gulluk brings you to the ancient ruins of Ephesus with the famous facade at the Celsius Library, the Roman ampitheatre capable of seating 25,000, the Temple of Hadrian and the remnants of the Temple of Artemis (one of the 7 wonders of the Ancient World).
The Turquoise Coast has amazing beaches and private coves and the drive south from Gulluk around the liffs of the peninsular is one of the most scenic coastal drives you'll find.

Gulluk is a very relaxed seaside resort with more than enough facilities to entertain. Gulluk is a very peaceful family friendly town with nice locals (most speak very good English) with beaches, beach clubs and good bars and restaurants. They also have full day boat trips from the promenade including BBQ lunch, beach volleyball, mud baths and swimming for around £10/12 per person. As Gulluk is much less touristy than Bodrum, restaurant prices are a fraction of Bodrum's prices making it a value for money destination. For example, every time we go to Gulluk, we have grilled fresh whole sea bream (landed same day) for around £4 (including chips and salad)!
We know Gulluk and the whole Bodrum peninsular really well so we can help with all sorts of suggestions from scuba diving to day excursions to the Greek islands (such as Kos, Kalymnos) etc. email@example.com
