The stone built exterior of the house gives the impression of grandeur and proudly sits in its large sea-facing plot of mature landscaped gardens. Inside, the home has a uniqueness of its own with many walls of uncovered natural stone mixed with modern furnishings. 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms are located in the main house but a separate guest house building offers flexible accommodation and has an additional bedroom and bathroom.

The peaceful village of Gumusluk is one of the oldest settlements on the Bodrum Peninsula standing on the site of the ancient Carian city of Myndus. Because of this, Gumusluk is protected against developments, which means it has not been over developed.
Today Gumusluk retains a small-scale, relaxed and magical atmosphere thanks to strictly enforced building prohibitions, designed to protect the ancient site. Gumusluk is the perfect antidote for modern-day living, it’s a great place to unwind in an idyllic setting. Bars & Restaurants are also forbidden from playing music too loud!
The wonderful shelter of the bay provides a natural harbour for yachts and local fishing boats, and the waterfront restaurants enjoy a reputation for excellent fresh fish amongst the Turks as far away as Istanbul. Gumusluk is famed amongst many famous Turkish actors, artists and musicians who frequent the bay during the summer months.
Rabbit Island, famous for its rabbits scurrying around, offers a magnificent panorama of the bay, and separates the two well-sheltered bays of Gumusluk. It is easily accessible by a partially sunken causeway.
