5,000 square feet (470 square meters), 5 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths mediterranean style villa with a private pool, minutes from downtown Bodrum.
Our house is located in Bardakci Bay, which snuggles between Bodrum and Gumbet Bays. Down town Bodrum is a 20 minute short walk or 5 minute car ride away.
The construction is modern, is fully air conditioned, furnished and has a fully fitted modern, state of the art kitchen. The house has its own yard, pool, covered car port, is gated and very private. Our home sits on top of the Bardakci Bay and benefits from amazing views and a nice breeze in the hot summer days of Bodrum.
Our 3 story luxury Bodrum home has Plasma screen TVs with Cable, wireless internet and a working phone.
Big homes are very hard to find in Bodrum as space is very valuable. There are 2 spacious master suites with their own bathrooms+ 3 bedrooms, plus one 1 full bath and 1 1/2bath in living room/kitchen area. One bedroom has 2 twin beds that can be converted in to either 4 single beds or 2 queen beds, 1 bedroom has a full size bed and the last bedroom has a single bed.
The Bardakci bay is home to 3 luxury hotels with pools, cafes and restaurants. The Bardakci Beach is a 3 minute walk down the hill from our house. The Bardakci Beach holds the rare "Blue Flag" which means that the natural life of the seas is preserved at its best in the bay.
Taxis are available 24 hours a day and arrive within minutes of your call.
There is also a local bus service (dolmus) that stops on the main street to Bardakci ( 2 minute walk) every 15 minutes.
In addition; there is the water taxi available at the south end of the Beach ( 5min walk) and for 5YTL ( about $2) a person, you will enjoy a 10 minute boat ride to down town Bodrum, passing the marina, boats and the histrorical Bodrum castle.
In our opinion; our luxury home is one of the best places to stay. In Bodrum you step into a different time on the back streets; you may expect to 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. Along side the marina and further down towards downtown Bodrum there are hotels, shops and restaurants, night clubs and small beaches tucked behind all the restaurants and shops overlooking the Bodrum castle.
Our Bodrum villa is one of largest, spacious villas that is tastefully furnished and with a private pool. It is minutes from down town Bodrum and holds the best views of Bardakci Bay.
I recently stayed at this 5 bedroom villa with 2 friends for a few days as we relaxed in Bodrum and the towns surrounding. The villa is fantastic. It is truly better than the pictures show with three floors and plenty of space. If you are a group of close friends, a few couples, or a family this villa will suit you perfectly.
The location is great, nestled at Bardakci Bay between Bodrum and Gumbet. A beach is a short walk from the house and water taxis take you right to Bodrum center in 5-10 minutes for 6TL. While you can easily walk to town in 15 minutes, this is definitely the best (and most beautiful) way to get there, particularly at night. Cabs are also easily accessible and there is a stand a close walk away.
The villa has a balcony with seating for breakfast with a great view of Bardakci and Gumbet. The kitchen appliances, washer/dryer, bathrooms, etc are all in great condition. Overall, the apartment is very clean and modern.
We didn't use the pool much since the beach was close by, but it looked very nice and well-maintained.
Aycha was very responsive to any inquiries we had. Her uncle lives next door so any problems with had he was there to help shortly.
Overall, if I make it back to Bodrum, I definitely plan to stay at this villa again. Separate to the house, my only recommendation for you is to rent a car! There is a gated driveway at the house and you will be able to do excursions to Turkbuku and Yalikavak, which are both about 20 minute drives from the villa. Beautiful bays and beach clubs at both. Also, this will help with picking up groceries (which are a short 10 minute drive to large grocery stores).
Great house an great advice/assistance from Ayca.
