Moonlight's French/Belgian owners favour the contemporary pure Zen style lines of furnishing which is displayed throughout the villa's interior.

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. 
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. 
Koyunbaba beach is approx 10/15 mins walk from the villa and can be reached by following the road through the Karya development. Some beaches are private and may have access restricted to residents of nearby properties. 
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 advised for this location. The dolmus (public transport minibus) runs along the main road from Yalikavak to Gumusluk, this is near the Migros supermarket (which is 1km, 2 mins drive away). 
Distances: Bodrum town is 20/25 mins from Villa Moonlight; Yalikavak is 15 mins drive, Gumusluk fishing village and harbour restaurants are 10/15 mins drive in the opposite direction 
Turgutreis is 20 mins drive : Nearest supermarket, Migros, 1 km - 15 minute walk, 2 min drive

Guest Feedback 

Quality family time | July 2016 
After booking Moonlight villa through Annie at Peninsula villas in 2015, shortly after we left we booked again. We returned this year and had a lovely stay. We loved the new landscaping and pool as it gave more space for enjoying the evening. Every year we look forward to returning to this place as it offers unspoiled, unblocked sea view with fresh breeze in the evenings. You would not need air conditioning at night and do try sleeping outdoor.

Wonderful experience breathtaking views and sunset| June 2016 
We are a family of 4 enjoying the pleasures of Moonlight villa, sadly we have to leave tomorrow. We are reluctant and sad to leave this wonderful villa, it really must have the best open sea/Greek Island views in the whole of the Bodrum Peninsula, views and sunsets are breathtaking and tireless. 
We booked Moonlight late in 2015 via Annie at Peninsula Villas, who are the owner’s booking agents. We were very surprised to learn some of the dates in July we wanted were already booked. Annie explained Moonlight is in demand and often repeat guests book early for the following season to secure their dates! Now we understand why and we will do the same for next year! Online booking was simple, payment direct to the owner’s bank account was also simple, secure and receipt of funds quickly confirmed by Peninsula Villas, we cannot fault their admin and process and would highly recommend them. Sara, the villa manger, met us on arrival and is professional, efficient and friendly. We are regular visitors to Yalikavak and have to say, this is the best villa we have rented, why didn’t we find it before? The standard of fittings and furniture inside and out is very high and the views from all rooms and the relaxing terrace really are amazing. 
When we booked, Annie explained the owners were building a new pool and terrace for 2016 and that it would be really classy and stylish … WOW, it is! The pool is a large infinity pool and huge spacious sun terrace with classy sun loungers, hammock and pool towels. Moonlight and sunsets are spectacular sights from the pool and dining/lounging terrace. We have spent most of our holiday living outside, eating, swimming, sun downing, BBQing, the villa is perfect for summer outside living, something we are not used to. Inside the villa is equally as attractive – in short, a perfect holiday home for a relaxing, chill out break. One topic we need to comment on is the area. Having seen news reports about safety in Turkey, even as regular travelers to this area, we wondered what to expect. We thought we might see refugees attempting to reach Greece as reported last year, but saw none. We spoke to restaurant owners about this and were told this had now stopped and evidently there are none in the area. Safety concerns,the Bodrum Peninsula appears to be unaffected and the serene, calm way of life in a small town area is the same we experienced in previous years. Moonlight, we’ll be back!

An Absolutely Fabulous Time | October 2016 
We had an absolutely fabulous time! The villa is wonderful and the view is simply breathtaking - we had some of the best sunsets I have ever seen. I even managed to bake a fairly decent sponge cake for Jenny's Birthday! 
In terms of feedback, the amenities within the villa are excellent eg blender / coffee maker / whisk etc and the finish & décor are first class. The booking service was extremely simple (we would repeat in the future) and Sara was brilliant, especially when I inadvertently closed the front door with the keys inside!
