Villa Anna is a distinctive, and very special stone built holiday home designed for summer outdoor living. It is not the typical Bodrum holiday villa, it is definitely Mediterranean/Tuscan/International style with inspiration from the Ottoman Empire and the South Seas and Somerset Maugham.
Villa Anna is a beautiful, chic, private airy house in a quiet location. This is a truly unique home close to the Gokcebel village area of Yalikavak. The villa combines generous sized rooms and a traditional Mediterranean/Ottoman feel which is lacking in contemporary style holiday homes. The ambiance is 'inside out', relaxed summer living ... you will get the sounds of Summer from nature, you will get privacy and peace ...
Unlike many holiday homes in the Yalikavak area, Villa Anna was not originally intended for renting. The villa has been furnished and designed Mediterranean/Ottoman style for family use and family living, therefore you can't help but notice the Mediterranean 'warm' feeling mixed with Turkish soft furnishings. Villa Anna's English owner has opened up her home for rental guests to enjoy a truly Turkish/Tuscan laid back experience. For those looking for a super holiday home, not on the beaten track, Villa Anna offers modern living, private pool, views and privacy in peaceful surroundings and only 5 minutes away from shops, supermarkets and buzzing Yalikavak centre and its Marina.
The villa is situated in a quiet location surrounded by nature and beautiful gardens but within a very short distance of restaurants, shops, beach and harbour in lively Yalikavak. The villa can sleep 6 in the main house, it is the perfect honeymoon spot or couples location for a really private retreat. And with the guest suites in use, both sleeping an extra 2, this is the ideal venue for family reunions or groups of friends. Note: the 2 guest suites are separate buildings contained within the grounds of the villa and completely stand alone units but part of the property.

The Turkish Aegean Coast Region
On the Bodrum Peninsula buildings are not permitted to be built more than 2 stories high, and there are no buildings higher than 3 stories in the whole Peninsula. This tends to make the area look particularly attractive. Most of the buildings are white washed cubes, similar to those in the Greek Islands. This is because this part of Turkey used to belong to Greece and some of the Greek Islands used to belong to Turkey. As you can imagine, there is a lot of history around the area.
Archaeological excavations have established that human habitation in the Yalikavak area began in around 2000BC, and there are ruins and artefacts from the Carian, Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman eras. The historic sites such as Sandima, Pasanda (Geris), Kandiba and Termil (Dirmil/Gökçebel) attract visitors from all over the world. Yalikavak is famous for the numerous windmills found in the vicinity. The winds, that until recently turned the vanes of these working windmills, now fill the sails of boats and windsurfs. Another “typical” feature found in abundance here are domed water cisterns which, in the past, were used in times of drought and are now being adapted for artistic and cultural uses.
A 20 minute road journey will take you to Bodrum Centre with its historic castle which was built from 1402 onwards, by the Knights of St John as the Castle of St. Peter or Petronium. The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus is also located in Bodrum town.
Ferry trips to the Greek island of Kos can be made from Turgutreis and Bodrum
Further afield you can visit Ephesus, the largest archaeological site in the world, the stunning pools at Pamukkale, the royal rock tombs at Dalyan, and the temple of Apollo at Didim.
Yalikavak's town centre has retained its traditional Turkish charm. With its simple but stylish laid back atmosphere and friendly welcoming locals, this is its main attraction and the reason why holidaymakers return to the area year after year. Along the coast road en-route from the villa to Yalikavak you will pass some of the best fish restaurants on the Bodrum Peninsula huddled together in their own 'fish restaurant village' area. A couple of minutes further on takes you to Yalikavak's fashionable new Marina (Palmarina) with super yachts, gullets and sail boats visiting from all around the world. The Marina is home to smart shops, bars, restaurants and a beach club which hosts open air concerts during high summer.
The centre of Bodrum is less than 20 minutes from here with its own smart Marina, town centre shops and, of course, the famous Bodrum Castle. Bodrum town has fabulous shops in the Marina area and also along the narrow streets of the old town near the Castle. At night, the Marina has open air live music starting at 10pm until the early hours nightly during high summer.
Yalikavak has supermarkets, banks, ATMs, Taxi ranks, bus station, petrol stations etc.
A car is essential for this location. The dolmus (public transport minibus) runs along the main road from Yalikavak to Gundogan, this is near the Migros supermarket (which is 1km, 5 mins drive away).
Distances: Bodrum town is 15 mins drive; Yalikavak is 5 mins drive, Gundogan is 10 mins drive and Gumusluk fishing village and harbour restaurants are 20 mins drive in the opposite direction
Turgutreis is 25 mins drive : Nearest supermarket, Migros, 1.5km - 5 min drive
Guest Feedback for holidays at Villa Anna
New villa for the 2021 Season| 2021
Great stay at Villa Anna | July 2022
We stayed in the villa for two weeks during July 2022 and enjoyed the villa with its great location, facilities, and service. Lovely outdoor pool and garden. Charming rooms with a lot of authentic design. Spacious living/dining areas. Carley the villa manager was great help and always reachable as well as Fahime and her husband who took good care of us. This is our 6th villa that we rent in Bodrum through “Peninsula Villas Bodrum” as we trust and enjoy the experience with Annie and her team.
Thank you Annie and Carley, can’t wait till next year 😉
