Property was extremely well equipped, especially kitchen. It was beautifully decorated, very homely. Bedrooms were very spacious with a lovely terrace off the main bedroom. Gorgeous well furnished roof terrace, ideal if it gets to hot as there is usually a nice breeze up there. Numerous outdoor spaces to sit/eat or sunbathe. The pool area was lovely. The site was extremely peaceful and very well kept with lots of beautiful plants, flowers and fruit trees. There was a man who seemed to be there full time maintaining the grounds also a security man most evenings. Facilities very close by, supermarket/bakers and takeaways supplying everything you could need. Yalikavak is more authentic than some other Turkish resorts I have visited which I really liked but other resorts are very easily accessed if you fancy a change of scenery. Overall a very relaxing holiday in a villa obviously loved by its owners.
The apartment was very nice with great views over Bodrum. The aircon worked well and is needed. Generally the apartment was clean and tidy and comfortable. We had some minor issues with the pool house which had not been cleaned before our arrival this was done on our second day, the sun shades around the pool were tatty and needed to be replaced, this was sort of done while we were there. There were also some issues with the hot water supply which seemed to be an ongoing problem.
We met Mitra the owner who invited us out to dinner I presume was a goodwill gesture, unfortunately we had already made other arrangements.
We didn’t have a car so needed to get taxis to and fro Bodrum as it’s a 20min walk in the blistering heat, they are cheap £3 each way.
We went to this part of Turkey for a Scuba Diving course which was fantastic but I don’t think we will go back here again.
