VILLA SAKIN is a contemporary styled holiday home with modern decor throughout the villa, a real home from home holiday home! Villa Sakin, which is Turkish for Peace and Calm, is situated on a small, exclusive development of 2 and 4 bedroom villas designed by an award winning architect. Sakin is one of the spacious 2 bedroom, 2 shower room semi-detached type villas but has much more to offer both inside and outside. Although the same layout as other villas here, Sakin's beautifully enhanced outside living and dining areas make the most of the fabulous 360 degree views of the Aegean Sea, to Yalikavak in one direction and Gumusluk in the other. 
 
Sakin's owners have used the villa's outside space cleverly to make the most of their sea views which can be seen from the private ground floor level terrace and roof terrace. They have transformed the roof space into a newly built roof garden and sun lounging terrace, complete with artificial grass floor, BBQ area, and seating area - the perfect spot to watch the sun go down or relax in the spa tub in private. Sakin has its own private garden and terrace with separate view-facing dining area complete with table and chairs (and the option to extend a ‘branda’ shade sail cover during hotter days); comfortable lounge style outside sofa’s; a BBQ; a chair-swing with views; additional outside lighting and stairs to access road level and the roof terrace. There is seating areas to the front, rear and roof top terrace. 
 
Villa Sakin is located at the rear of the development which means the villa is not overlooked at all and is slightly elevated than other villas below. There is a stunning large shared infinity pool a few steps away below which you may just find you have to yourself because the larger villas have private pools whose owners and guests of those villas tend not to use the large pool. 
 
There are only 20 villas in total here at this development which is on the outskirts of popular Yalikavak, Bodrum Peninsula. Sakin has high quality fixtures and fittings throughout with additional enhancements added by the owners.  
 
Ground Floor: Spacious open plan area with fully fitted kitchen (modern units with under cupboard lighting), internal dining area with table and chairs.

The ground floor has a spacious bathroom with shower, wash basin on cabinet with glass top and a WC. Floor to ceiling sliding doors open up onto the fabulous view facing terrace with outside 'lounge' seating and dining furniture, BBQ and covered swing sofa to the right. The private garden/terrace area reveals breathtaking views over 2 bays.

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. 
 
Yalikavak 
Yalikavak, 18 km away from Bodrum centre on the North Western tip of the Bodrum Peninsula, has grown in size over recent years, but remains still very much a place where the locals welcome holidaymakers with open arms. The permanent inhabitants of Yalikavak number around 6,800 people. Yalikavak is becoming ever more popular as an alternative resort to Bodrum. The small harbour is surrounded by restaurants and bars, and while there is the occasional disco bar, the general atmosphere is quiet, unhurried and relaxed, yet further along the shoreline is a new sophisticated Marina. 
 
Approaching Yalikavak from Bodrum you cannot help but notice the stunning panoramic view of Yalikavak Bay. This fertile coastal region is ideal for sailing and all water sports and attracts many foreign yachts to the Marina and old harbour that once sheltered mainly fishing boats. 
 
FISHING & SEAFOOD 
Yalikavak still supports a thriving fishing industry and the restaurants around the picturesque harbour and marina display a wide selection of fresh fish every day. The town is known for its excellent seafood restaurants - try Sait, you won't be disappointed. 
 
RESTAURANTS 
Yalikavak has a huge selection of restaurants to suit all tastes. 
 
SHOPPING AND WEEKLY VENDOR'S MARKET 
There are many shops in the traffic free centre, selling local wares and tourist items. Every Thursday there is a colourful weekly market split in 2 halves. Clothes, textiles and traditional Turkish wares on one side, and the other with fruit, vegetables, great choices of olives, herbs and spices. 
 
MARINA (Palmarina) 
Just a few minutes walk along the shoreline from the centre of Yalikvak is the new Marina. The Marina is home to many large yachts and is visited by yachts from all over the world in summer. It has stylish shops and several restaurants and cafes, plus a seaside 2,500 seater Amphitheatre used for open air concerts and fashion shows during the summer months. 
 
BEACHES 
Gumuskaya beach(s) are split between private areas for owners and guess of nearby sites and Gumuskaya public beach. If you are turned away, you will likely be at a private resident's beach.  
 
The main beach in Yalikavak is long and narrow and lined with a few restaurants. It is easy to sit back and not worry where your next drink or meal will come from! Yalikavak's beach is never busy and you won't be sandwhiched in amongst sun loungers. Away from the harbour end of town, the quieter the beach becomes. Yalikavak is always said to be a little cooler in the summer than other parts of the region due to the gentle offshore breezes. Whereas Bodrum is hot, in all respects, in summer. 
 
Yalikavak is renowned for its superb sunsets and unspoilt shoreline. Its sparkling clean sea is one of the few remaining abodes of the endangered “Monachus Monachus” Mediterranean seals and therefore a protected area. In 2002 Yalikavak Bay was awarded the "Blue Flag" for its clean waters. 
 
Local buses (Dolmus) go to most local villages as well as Bodrum town and are a cheap way of getting around. Other towns worth a visit by bus are Gundgoan, Gumusluk, Turgutreis. Dolmus mini buses to these run from Yalikavak bus depot regularly all year and more frequently in the summer season

Guest Feedback for holidays at Villa Sakin 

Feels Like Home | July 2018 
Dear Annie ; WE would like to thank you and your team once again our nice holiday arrangements. We hope that we will have more 10 years with you…( I remember our first meet with you in 2008 or 2009 and now this 10th year) 
 
We had 4 wonderful weeks in July in Villa Sakin - a beautifully decorated and has very nice view villa. We had a also great time last year 3 weeks staying in Villa Sakin. This is our 7 week already been there and we really felt like our home. This is such a wonderful place to relax and enjoy your holiday. It is within walking distance (5-10 minutes) to a beautiful beach and of course the lovely aegean sea. The house itself is in a very good condition, very nice view, quiet, clean and comfortable. Kids had fun playing in the garden and pool area. We are definitely planning to go back to Villa Sakin and I strongly recommend it to those, who wish to relax, enjoy the beautiful nature (all those pine trees around) and at the same time, to be close to other centers of attraction while staying in a nice villa. 
 
The villa was ideal for our needs, and the owners of the Peninsula Villas (Annie) couldn't have been any more helpful, from the date of initial booking, through to our return home. In addition, the on-site management team of Sara, were very friendly and always available with help and advice when needed. 
Date of Stay: July 2018
