I'd highly recommend staying here. It's well equipped and welcoming, and as soon as you walk in the door it feels like home, and we felt relaxed straight away. We did a lot of self-catering during our stay and the kitchen had everything we needed, and the bonus is that there's an excellent supermarket (Migros) within easy walking distance. It has everything you need during your stay, but if you do want to have a wider selection of fresh fruits and vegetables it's a convenient dolmus/bus ride to Yalikavak, Gumusluk, or Turgutreis markets. The bus service is regular and reliable, and there's a direct bus into central Bodrum which runs frequently.
This house provides lots of different areas to relax in, and you can choose a shady spot or something with a little more shade. The pool is fab, and the outdoor patio area with table, BBQ, and wet bar are ideal hang out spots. There's a new addition since last time we stayed - a lovely little sun room, which was where I spent a lot of my time. I needed to stay connected while I was on holiday, and the wi-fi was excellent.
Tracey goes out of her way to make sure her guests get a warm welcome, and is really knowledgeable about the local area, with all sorts of phone numbers and contacts for spas, Turkish baths, boat trips etc. So if you have any questions about sightseeing or activities she's an excellent resource.
One of the most important things with self-catering accommodation is that it's clean - and it was spick and span when we arrived. All in all we had a brilliant time, and have no hesitation about recommending this property (we're even planning on coming back next year).
Final note -- don't listen to the international news scaremongering about the safety of Turkey. It's a huge country and the Bodrum area is safe and friendly. We met so many lovely Turks during our day trips to the surrounding towns and villages, very friendly and the rate of exchange is amazing right now.
The owner Richard saved our holiday as our already booked villa was cancelled the day before we were due to leave for the holiday, we found this Villa and got it booked and confirmed straight away which saved our holiday.
We had an amazing time me, my wife, Dad, Brother, sister in law and my 3 nieces who are 6, 12 and 16... A holiday for all the ages.
The Villa is beautiful and the pictures does not do it justice, the games room is a very nice touch and is suited for the whole family.
Easy walking distance to local shops for food and drunk and it's a quick walk 15-20 mins into the main town for great shopping and restaurants.
This was the best holiday we have ever had and Richard and the Villa Guy Envarl was a great part of it thanks to all their support and personal recommendations.
We will definitely be back.
