More information on this area: 
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. 
 
History 
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. 
 
Gumusluk 
Gumusluk itself is a small town which has survived obstinately with its fishing boats on the coast, authentic coffee houses and popular fish restaurants. With an exceptional history and a magnificent nature, Gumusluk continues to be the gem of the Peninsula and the firm favorite of intellectuals, artists and art-aficionados as well as all who are familiar with Bodrum. Close to everywhere yet away from the hustle and bustle of some of the larger Peninsula towns, this unpretentious and tranquil spot is an exceptional location for a relaxing villa stay in beautiful natural surroundings. 
 
Yalikavak 
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, Gumusluk and Turgutreis have 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 roads around Gumusluk and can take you into Bodrum and all other Peninsula towns. To walk to this point will take approx 20 mins and is only 1.5 km distance. 
 
Distances: Bodrum town is 20/25 mins from Karakaya Villa; Yalikavak is 15/20 mins drive, Gumusluk fishing village and harbour restaurants are 5/8 mins drive 
 
Turgutreis is 15 mins drive 8.5km : Nearest supermarket, Migros, 1 km - 15 minute walk, 2 min drive

Guest Feedback for holidays at Villa Karakaya 

Karakaya Villa was Everything we Imagined | September 2019 
Hi Annie, We had a wonderful stay at villa karakaya the villa was everything I had imagined and the location was perfect for us as we have Friends in both bodrum and Turgutreis. We will definitely be returning to bodrum next year and if not karakaya may stay in one of your other villas in Yalikavak/Gümüşlük. The only thing Sinan did note was that the front door was difficult to open. He also would have liked air con in the kitchen although with the size of the room I understand why there is none installed, this didn’t bother me but Sinan is the only Turk I have met that doesn’t like heat or sun!

Hi Annie, I just wanted to say we had a wonderful stay and the villa was perfect. We are looking forward to our next visit to Bodrum, we have stayed in Turkey for the last 10 years but Gümüşlük and Yalikavak have to be our favourite areas so far.

Such a Beautiful Villa | July 2019 
I am very grateful for all Annie’s help to find us such a beautiful villa. Annie has been a great communicator and I am sure I could not get the service if I had to organise it all by myself. 
Villa was beautiful, exactly how it was shown online and how I was expecting it to be. Breathtaking views, gorgeous pool and lovely spaces throughout. 
Hurdem was a fantastic help. She responded to all my calls and requests immediately , I am very grateful for all her help.  
Overall very pleasant stay, we are grateful for the experience and visit beautiful Bodrum. Annie and Hurdem thanks for all your help.

We Loved the Style of the Building | June/July 2019 
Dear Annie, Thanks for the return of the deposits and your professionalism in handling the bookings. This was our first visit to Turkey and we absolutely loved it and will return soon. You will definitely be our first point of contact. Villa Karakaya, we loved the style of the building and the garden and pool area is perfect. Hurdem was fantastic, going above and beyond to make sure we were looked after. A real gem! 
Long way to a decent size supermarket so car essential if you are a large group.

Peaceful Setting and Lovely Views | June 2017 
Everything was great and we had a very pleasant stay. As well, Hurdem was very helpful and responsive. We liked the villa alot it was at the level of privacy that we are looking for, although the only comment we had is that the AC was'nt that good but it was fixed. Therefore, in our future plans when we decide to go to Bodrum, Peninsulavillas will definitely be our choice.

Peaceful Setting and Lovely Views | October 2016 
We did indeed have a very enjoyable stay. It was exactly what was required. The peaceful setting and lovely views from the villa were especially nice. There really isn't much that I could find fault without sounding pedantic. All the appliances worked fine and we had no great issues getting to feel at home. The water in the showers in the annex and the shared downstairs bathroom did take a while to drain away, a minor problem which I'm sure the plumber can fix. The temperature of the water in the swimming pool was on the chilly side at the end of October (didn't stop me using it tho!) but I expect this is normal for this time of year as on the flip side there was a nice cooling breeze in the evening. Maybe two sets of keys would be useful as there was always a minor battle to be in posession of that. Apart from these insignificant matters everything was perfect, thank you.
