"Somewhere, where I would defianately want to wake upto!!"
I found the balcony view breath-taking and picturesque. The apartment rooms were VERY spacious and accommodating, certainly plenty of room to spread yourself with adequate facilities for self-catering.
The main on-site pool and other minor pools dotted around the complex, very good with great bar snacks & drinks. Its a good complex to unwind, as it is quieter than other local resorts, which suited me better. To add, I saved a small fortune on local cabs to other resorts and restaurants as this service was free of charge. …
Turquoise Bay Bogazici, Bodrum
A lovely holiday place, away from all the package tourists :)
We loved this apartment. It was exactly as we'd expected - very quiet, not touristy and the view was amazing. The apartment itself is very attractive and well equipped, it feels like home not a hotel. There's no manager but a local man who helps out whenever you call him. The water went off a couple of times - real turkish village life! - but he came straight away to fix it. He also got us fresh fish which we cooked on the barbie on the balcony! The only thing missing was a pool but it's a short (and steep) walk to the local beach, We hired a car and travelled the area a lot - the roads are excellent and it's easy to get around (eg to Ephesus, a couple of hours drive). We went to Bodrum a few times and there are lots of beaches and other interesting local towns around, like Gulluk. Our favourite beach was 5 mins drive away (Sunset) with a lovely cafe for lunch. We went to the supermarket there, and there's also one in the village (which is a bit more expensive). The village is unspoilt and traditional and the locals are very friendly and helpful.
This is a perfect holiday for anyone who is looking for an authentic turkish experience and a place to unwind. It would be a great place to write your first novel!
It's best for healthy adults - there are quite a lot of steps so I wouldn't take small children or elderly people, unless you want to drive everywhere. …
