Description

IMPRESSIONS
Bodrum Retreat is the owners dream come true.
The location is awesome and when you first arrive, it will take your breath away. The views are unparalleled and from the property you can see from Yalikavak Marina to the west, Samos Island in Greece, 45km away north and Gundogan to the east. While we have 3 suites for rental, we are definitely not like a hotel and in no way do we resemble anything else but a very private home.
If you decide to come, without any prompting, you will immediately feel at ease. The location is marked by twenty, 75 year old Italian cypress trees in which the birds sing and rare squirrels have their early morning breakfast.
Days are balmy, generally breezy and at least 5 degrees C. cooler than what you see below.
Evenings are perfect for outside dining and the sunsets are always different and magnificent.

One of the highest points on the Bodrum peninsula, this hand crafted stone house affords magnificent views of the Turkish coast

One of the highest points on the Bodrum peninsula, this hand crafted stone house affords magnificent views of the Turkish coast as well as the Greek Islands from Kalimnos to Samos. Interior furnished by noted decorator. One of the most unique and beautiful Aegean properties you will find. Surrounded by mandarin, almond, fruit trees and grapes. Private local herb garden. Extensive natural stone patios. Swimming pool / dining / entertainment area with unobstructed views of the sea and hills. A private setting in a magical part of Bodrum.

The suites are also ideal for Fall, Winter and Spring visits to Bodrum as, in those seasons, heating is included in the pricing and warm bedding duvets provide exceptional comfort. Most restaurants have fireplaces and without crowds of tourists, the cuisine is at it's best. Scores of historical sites are yours for the day. Flights from NY, and European counties are at their lowest and Bodrum is just a 55 minute flight from exciting Istanbul.
We think Bodrum, out of season, is truly the best kept secret in the Aegean region.

A private setting in a magical part of Bodrum.

This farm house, consisting of 2 floors, with separate entrances, was built years ago by master stone builders. 50cm thick walls. Windows are antique, carved, latticed wood circa Ottoman Empire 1850. One can lease the top floor, called Labranda, or, the ground floor, called Herakleia, or book the entire house.
The 3rd suite, named Iassus, is located 50 metrs away from the farmhouse. It is private and somewhat larger than the other two suites and opens onto a small private rose garden. The views are exceptional.

All of the suites are perfect for a couple or an extended family if one decides to book more than one suite.

Gokcebel

Yalıkavak is a town near Bodrum in Muğla province, on the Aegean coast of Turkey. It is 18 kilometres (11 miles) from Bodrum and located at the north eastern tip of the Bodrum peninsula. It has been inhabited since near the end of the second millennium B.C.[2] It is an important tourist resort.

Formerly the Bodrum area's main sponge fishing port, Yalikavak is considered the most elite village on the Bodrum Peninsula. It has a bustling centre, particularly on market day (Thursday), many beaches including two blue flag beaches one at the port[4] and the other the public beach.[5] It also has many high quality restaurants as well as several magnificent bays.[6] Yalıkavak is surrounded by hills offering tourists views of the town and nearby Mediterranean coastline.

In 2009 Yalikavak hosted the Palmalife RS:X Youth World Championships[7][8] in which 109 competitors took part.[9]

The port Palmarina (formerly Port Bodrum Marina) is also in Yalikavak with 450 berths for yachts up to 100m[10] which also has a 2,500 seat Amphitheatre.[11] It was bought in 2011 for 42 million dollars with plans to increase capacity to 800.[12]
