Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Ortakent - Yahsi - Villa Tortuga
Great rental for families or sports minded people, large lawn.
Situated in the peaceful countryside just outside Bodrum, Villa Tortuga makes an ideal choice for families and sports enthusiasts. (private villa, privately gated, NOT in a complex, all facilites for exclusive use) The location is perfect for those wishing a central position to the many charms of the Bodrum Peninsula, with the setting framed by farmland and a quiet, natural view out on a small olive grove and hills beyond. You will be spoiled for choice when it comes to activities, starting with the private pool which has in-pool seating and poolside pergola to escape the mid day sun. A few steps from the pool is a Beach Volleyball court (aka Kids' Beach) and a large grass lawn that lends itself to a family game of football. In the backyard you will find the organic vegetable gardens (help yourslef to what you find) as well as the badminton and half basketball court. Villa Tortuga is a perfect rental for the whole family.
Great area for long walks, quiet area with very few neighbours or noise...

Pool and grounds will be looked after by our gardener 4 days a week.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We were 2 families staying at Villa Tortuga for one week and without reservation we were all delighted with our time in this quiet, secure home. The children (ages 13-18) used the sports facilities - pool, volleyball and soccer on the lawn - every day. The adults joined in the sports (always creating much laughter on the volleyball court) and they also much enjoyed the variety of quiet shaded areas to cool off, read and chat. The BBQ area was a favourite, as was the screened dining area though we suffered from no bugs at all during our time.
We had been greeted on arrival by an incredibly proud and enthusiatic 'caretaker' who ensured we knew all we need to regarding the running of the house. The villa was spotless and we felt the bedroom and bathrooms, (including linens etc.) were a very high standard - significantly exceeding expectations. In fact we rather felt the description of Villa Tortuga on the website undersells itself!
The access to high quality supermarkets, to local markets and to village restaurants was very easy, as was the quick journey to Bodrum and surrounding coastal villages: the files in the house with advice and tips on local attractions were very comprehensive and well used. All in all we had a very good week in Villa Tortuga - it will take some beating and we unreservedly recommend it, particularly to families who like to mix sports into their daily routines.
We bought the land and built Villa Tortuga in 2006 to our specifications and had 5 wonderful years living there with our young children. Now we are living in Malta and pleased to rent out our Turkish property for others to enjoy.
