Nice sized pool which is well looked after. It is a long walk to the Marina etc but worth the effort. The best thing about it is you have the freedom to do what you want when you want / the worst thing is the dogs barking at night - take some ear plugs!!!

The sunset is spectacular, viewed from the stone seating area, a popular spot in the evenings. The villa is furnished to the highest standards, with a stylish minimal look but maximum comfort. The kitchen is well stocked with crockery and glasses, the appliances all worked and the water cooler was an added bonus. The pool is gorgeous, there is a ledge to sit on, many hours were spent sitting in here reading! The owners clearly take great pride in their property, it was absolutely spotless inside and out. The villa is a 10-15 minute walk down the hill to Migros Supermarket, The Terrace Restaurant, Dolmus stop and the taxi rank. We didn’t hire a car while we stayed, we used the Dolmus to get to Gumusluk and Yalikavak, and hired a taxi back (40TL from Yalikavak, 20TL from Gumusluk). We booked through Annie at Peninsula Villas. Communication with Annie was excellent and she took us through the booking and payment process without any problems at all. We also asked Annie to book us a taxi transfer, this was clean, cool, comfortable and on time, waiting for us when we landed. Our breakage deposit was paid back the day after we left, a highly efficient service. Marion manages the villa locally, she takes great care and attention with the property and was very helpful with advice and suggestions when she visited us mid stay, she has a wealth of information to share and is on hand to deal with any problems that may arise, a true gem! So, would we visit again? Absolutely!
