88 sqm (940 sq ft) 3 bedroom, 2 bath apartment in Bodrum, Turkey overlooking the town, castle and bay. The apartment is the entire top floor of a 2 storey building accessed by stairs (not suitable for disabled). The construction is modern (completed in 2008), is fully air conditioned, furnished and has a fully fitted kitchen.
Situated in a gated compound of 45 apartments sharing a swimming pool and children's paddling pool. Most of the apartments are occupied year round so it is usually very quiet with very few people using the pool. There is a security guard on-site 24 hours a day who will call taxis, fetch drinking water, etc . There is also a local bus service (dolmus) that stops outside the gate every hour. The town centre and beaches are about 1 km away.
In my view the walk to the centre of town is one of the nicest things about staying in Lale Tepe; after crossing a fairly busy road you step into a different time on the back streets of Bodrum; firstly you pass beside an olive grove with 1,000 year old decrepit trees shading you from the hot sun, then alongside a small plantation of orange trees with chickens running and scratching about; people are sitting in quiet shaded back gardens drinking tea; a carpenter is building a boat outside under a huge tree. After 500 metres you come to a more active area with hotels, shops and restaurants and then suddenly you are on the beach which is lined with restaurant tables. All in 10 minutes!
The compound is managed by Joan, my wife's sister who guarantees a friendly welcome to all guests.
Tony's apartment is exactly as described and perfect for our family vacation. The apartment is in a great location with beautiful views. Joan took great care of us and was very responsive to all questions and concerns. I highly recommend this apartment for any families, specially those with younger kids.
A beautiful, spacious villa in a great location. Lovely pool and only 10 mins walk into the town centre. We had a great stay here and cannot fault Tony or Joan on the experience. Highly recommended for a stay in Bodrum!
The condo was lovely! Plenty of room on the balcony for a meal and the A/C worked great! I would stay here anytime.
Our stay at Tony's place in Bodrum was a great experience overall. Our host was very accommodating to our questions and needs. The place is conveniently located to downtown Bodrum yet is in a secluded area to allow for peace and quiet when needed. The apartment is spacious, tastefully decorated, and has spectacular views of the sea. Overall, I highly recommend this place for a quiet vacation in Bodrum.
Excellent apartment to stay in with fantastic views from Balcony. We were only there for 3 nights but would have loved to stay longer. Joan was really helpful with our questions. Would strongly recommend Tony's place to anyone planning to use Bodrum for a base - Greg
This place is amazing. Located short walk from heart of Bodrum and easy to get around. The place is very clean and fully equiped with everything required. The views from the terrace are amazing. Tony and Joan were both very easy going an helpful. I would definitly recommend this place and will hopefully come back soon. The pool is also awesome. Its private for the residence and free of charge. All rooms also have air conditioning and the master bedroom has an ensuit. Perfect for all.
