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...

Bodrum Golf and Tennis Club is one mile away (driving range, 9 par-3 holes, 5 clay tennis courts, spa, clubhouse & restaurant).

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

About Nicki Hock

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.

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.

Fantastic compound and house, perfect location

  • 5 out of 5
This is an excellent villa, with amazing amenities. We were a group of 8 in Bodrum for a stag. We wanted something that was upscale, well situated with access to Bordrum and Turkbuku, and gave us some privacy and space. Villa Tortuga delivered.
It's a massive, well appointed villa with plenty of room for 8-12. The grounds are beautiful and well manicured. It has a basketball court, beach volleyball, football pitch, pool, bbq, shaded terrace, tv/internet.
The host, Tripp was great and had a driver, Manfred great us at the airport. Manfred himself was especially a highlight for us - great service and advice.

Highly recommended!!

Beautiful House in a quiet and tranquil setting.

  • 5 out of 5
We arrived at Villa Tortuga, very late, one balm and silent evening. The journey from the airport to the Villa was made much easier due to the accurate and comprehensive directions supplied to us by Trigg, the Villa owner.
Despite the lateness of our arrival we could not resist a stroll across the manicured lawns to a cooling dip in the larger than expected pool.
As expected, the pool was to become a focal point througout our 9 day stay, where most days we dined at the barbecue area at the deeper end of the Pool.
We have so many happy memories of our stay, Charlie the cat, the challenging Zip wire, climbing to the summit of the mountain that overlooks the villa and sipping coctails whilst listening to the call of the Imman from a distant place.
Manfredi, the housekeeper visited often enough and provided us with several recommendations on where to dine, all of which proved excellent.
We had one of our best ever holidays at Villa Tortuga and certainly hope to return on day.

A perfect house for active people

  • 5 out of 5
We just came back a really nice week in this house. Since we like being active on our vacation, we found this house perfect. You have a nice pool with relaxing next to it. The beach volley court was used frequently as well as the nice soccer area. There are tennis courts as well as a golf course a few kilometers from the house(car needed). Rental car is needed to get food or if you wish to go to Bodrum for shoping/restaurants. The owners of the house have been easy to communicate with and very helpful. We highly recommend this place.

Awesome villa, fabulous setting

  • 5 out of 5
I cannot rate this villa highly enough. The villa itself is spacious and tastefully done, it really feels like a home from home with everything you need on hand. It's especially good if you have small kids as they already have baby monitors, small chairs and small beds available, plus the pool is fenced off with a lockable gate. The kitchen is great - it even has one of those taps that filters the water so you don't have to lug a load of bottles home from the super market! It has mozzie nets on the windows and aircon if needed. There are loads of supermarkets nearby, plus a local market on a Wednesday which is amazing for fresh produce.
But the really wonderful thing about this place is the grounds it's set in! The pool is beautiful and there's plenty of sun loungers. It has a BBQ area, a volleyball court, a basket ball court and badminton! The kids will never get bored! nor will the grown ups come to that!
A man camer every day to check on the pool and maintain the garden and there was always someone on the phone if needed (even at 3am). The owners were easy to deal with and very helpful.
I'd recommend this property to friends, relatives and anyone who wants a break in the sunshine. It's a short drive to the beach, but to be honest there's not much reason to leave the villa!

Our amazing week in Bodrum

  • 5 out of 5
We were in this Villa in July 12, with another 3 couples from Spain and we can only say good things during our stay. The villa is amazing, with all kind of amenities, including a beach Volley court, Basket court, badminton... and a superb swimming pool with Jacuzzi. The house has a nice and big salon with an open kitchen and 5 rooms with very high standards. The place is very relaxing, surrounded by nature, but close to city center and several supermarkets. If you want to have a nice and relax holidays or visit some historical places, this is a place I would definitely recommend.

Excellent séjour

  • 5 out of 5
"Nous avons passé 2 semaines dans la Villa Tortuga. La maison est vraiment très agréable à vivre, avec tout le confort et plus !
Le jardin est très spacieux et très beau. Nous avons bien profité du terrain de badminton, de la très belle piscine et du barbecue !


La villa est à la fois isolée et au calme mais aussi proche de toutes commodités, du joli port de Bodrum et de son activité nocturne et de la plage d'Ortakent.


Et en plus, nous avons été très bien accueillis à notre arrivée et les formalités avec Trip and Nicki sont très faciles et agréables.

Excellent séjour"

Car: necessary

Located in the village of Ortakent, Villa Tortuga is centrally located on the Bodrum peninsula in the southwest corner of Turkey, making it a perfect base from which to explore the region. The peninsula is made up of many small villages, beaches, yacht harbours and historical sites which means there is no end of places to explore within a short drive. Ancient Halicarnassus, renamed Bodrum, is a vibrant, cosmopolitan town and has a wide selection of things to see and do. There are many sites of archaeological interest right in town from the Roman amphitheatre to the ancient wonder of the Mausoleum of Mausellos. The seafront area is split into two bays by the Castle of St Peter. An hour ferry ride and you can be in the Greek islands, exploring Kos and beyond. There are many day trips from Bodrum, the most famous being in Ephesus.

Within walking distance from Villa Tortuga is the Bodrum Golf and Tennis Club - an 'Academy Course' - a driving range, 9 holes at par 3, 5 new clay tennis courts in 2012, and nice clubhouse with spa, bar & restaurant good for dinner or a sunset drink.

The local beach of Ortakent is a short drive away, approx 7 minutes.

Ortakent is also home to the biggest shopping and grocery stores on the Peninsula, with Tesco Kipa and Metro Makro being a few minute drive away.
