Description from owner
Luxury Duplex Apartment - Sleeps 4
This stunning apartment was completed in June 2011 and boasts luxury amenities and spectacular, panoramic csea views of Güllük. The duplex apartment is ideal for couples and families, and has all the mod cons; free Wi-Fi, air-con, flat screen tv, dishwasher, washing machine, etc. It is situated on a complex with it's own private beach and jetty, seven swimming pools, tennis courts, multi sports court, several children's pools, several jacuzzi's, a sauna and a plunge pool. There is also a swimming pool directly in front of the apartment, so you can have a quick dip or keep an eye on the children. There are other local beaches you can try including Tepekoy and Jasmine beach, which is 5 mins away (Concierge will shuttle you down there for free) which is one of my favourites. The apartment is in a very peaceful and tranquil location, but you are not far away from a trip to the castle town of Bodrum, the dolphin park, watersports

The apartment is in a very peaceful and tranquil location, but you are not far away from a trip to the castle town of Bodrum, the dolphin park, watersports (Gulluk) or the fantastic water park. The complimentary resort boat takes you across the bay to Güllük (25mins,) where you can catch a Dölmüs (local bus) all over the Bodrum peninsula.
In the evenings you can either chill out on the balcony with a glass of wine taking in the breathe taking views, walk down to the new marina bar and restaurant at the bottom of the resort, or take the complimentary boat across the bay to the quaint fishing village that is Güllük, where there are several bars and restaurants to try, including the Momento Bar and Broken Barrel for some thirst quenching cocktails or local beer. Or for some alfresco dining you have a fine selection including Berkhan's for delicious Pide and locally caught fish. There is a cafe by the main pool to grab a drink or a snack and there is also a small shop at the resort entrance to stock up on your basics.
*****About the owner***** I first visited Turkey 18 years ago for a holiday and I fell in love with the Bodrum Peninsula. I have family that have moved out there and I have been visiting year on year ever since. I love the guaranteed hot weather, local cuisine (meze, fresh seafood etc) and the very warm hospitable locals who will always make you feel welcome. I bought this fantastic apartment for me and my family to enjoy, and also as an investment to rent out to allow others to enjoy what this lovely country has to offer. I have only just started advertising this apartment for rental, hence the very low introductory rates, so please don't be put off. Please do contact me if you have any questions.
Location description from owner
The Turkish Aegean Coast region
Horizon Sky Beach Resort is situated in the beautiful and historically protected area of Iasos (pronounced ee-ya-sos) a region of Bodrum in the gulf of Gulluk. Iasos was formerly an island and boasts thousands of years of history. The present village dates from 1929 and is famous for its olive groves and cheap and abundant fish, like in ancient days.
Whilst the area is popular with holiday makers, Iasos remains astonishingly peaceful and tranquil and offers unrivalled walks back through the history of this naturally preserved harbour.
The Mediterranean climate of Bodrum enjoys mild winters and warm summer weather, with highs of more than 34°C / 93°F in July and August.
The coastal breezes in July and August keep the evenings comfortable.
Excavations of Iasos by a team of Italian archaeologists have revealed that the earliest settlement dates back to the Early Bronze Age. Many artifacts and sculptures can be seen in Izmir, Milas and Bodrum museums.
As well as three temples of Zeus Megistos, Apollo and Artemis. There are numerous Roman buildings, including an agora, theatre aqueducts, cisterns, gymnasium, baths and a bouleuterion.
In the sea is an ancient harbour wall and watch towers. One of the two watch towers or lighthouses has been restored and can be reached by walking along the stones of the harbour wall that rises above the sea's surface.
Located just 10 minutes from International Bodrum Airport, Güllük is an unspoilt fishing village boasting many fine promenade restaurants, bars, al fresco eateries, local stores and markets. Arriving at the harbour, there are a couple of local shops for basics, but for a more substantial and sometimes cheaper shop, head to Migros located just five minutes’ walk from the Harbour. This a great store for stocking up on local beer, wine and fridge essentials. There is also a lovely fruit and veg stall just at the entrance to the Horizon Sky Resort (5min walk), and also a local shop selling warm fresh bread.
The resort runs a regular complimentary boat service between Horizon Sky and Güllük so it is very easy to enjoy a day shopping or an evening out here.
There are cashpoints available just by the square and a short walk through an archway will take you to the dölmüs stop. From here you can quickly access local towns, Bodrum or Milas.
There are also a multitude of local attractions including the beach, watersports, pleasure boat trips and glorious sunsets.
There is even a dolphin park where you can swim with dolphins about 20 minutes drive away and a fantastic aquapark reached by dölmüs from Güllük.
Historically, Gulluk, formerly known as Kulluk prior to 1933, was an import export harbour for the Greeks trading during the Ottoman Empire period. The store buildings and warehouses are today restaurants serving locally caught sea bass and bream.
Your holiday to Turkey wouldn’t be complete without a day or evening spent in the enchanting town of Bodrum.
The town's charm is well-known, attracting a diverse population of vacationers who stroll along its long palm-lined waterfront, while elegant yachts crowd the marina. The evenings in Bodrum are for sitting idly in one of the many restaurants, afterwards night clubs (some with live music) and, of course, some of the best discos in Europe keep you going until dawn.
Shopping is delightful in Bodrum. Leather goods of all kinds, natural sponges and the local blue glass beads are among the bargains to be found in the friendly little shops along the narrow, white-walled streets. Charming boutiques offer kilims, carpets, sandals and embroidery as well as original fashions.
Situated on a beautiful peninsula, Bodrum, known in ancient times as Halicarnassus, was the birthplace of Heredotus and the site of King Mausolus' Tomb, the Mausoleum (4th century B.C.), one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
In the harbour, the Bodrum Castle, or the medieval castle of St. Peter, is a fine example of 15th-century crusader architecture, and has been converted into the Museum of Underwater Archaeology, with remains dating as far back as the Bronze Age.

“A wonderful holiday”
We had a lovely stay. The apartment was even better than we thought, very clean, spacious and simple and nicely decorated. The views from the balcony were amazing. One of the pools was just in front of our apartment and while our kids were enjoying the pool we were able to keep an eye on them from the balcony. The staff at the resort were so friendly and spoke fluent English. There was a free boat service running from the resort to the nearest village Gulluk, where you will find plenty of restaurants serving very nice and fresh food. The resort also provided free car service, their drivers were available 24 hours to drive us to the beaches of our choice and come and pick us up at the required time by us, and also drive us down to the boat and pick us up as soon as we would return. It was such a family friendly resort with a lot to do during the day, such as the boat trips, which will take you to different beaches, there was an aqua park only 30 minutes away etc. We will definitely go back again
“an up market quirky holiday with a difference.”
Accomodation is 5*, 2 bathrooms a must! with 24/7 air conditioning if wanted (a must with the turkish heat). Views from appartment are breathtaking. Feels like you've got your own private pool as it is steps away, never busy (we went in school hols) perfect if you want to keep an eye on k ids. The boat across the bay is the quirky bit! Part of your evening out or day out. You can sunbathe or chill up on deck with comfort, large turkish cushions to relax on, enjoy the sun & scenary! Always on time. There are two lovely beaches not far away, just ask the drivers on site & they will drop you, our favourite was tepekoi, 5mins away, beds & umbrellas & bar. Beach small, empty & a jetty to swim out 100yrds and dive from. There is table tennis, football table & pool table on site. There are two clubs in Gullak that we saw for a more lively evening or you can get the bus or taxi to Bodrum. The locals in Gullak were very friendly & we found some lovely restaurants.
