Perched on a hillside above the traditional and unspoilt village of Gokcebel, Yalikavak on the Bodrum Peninsula, this property offers total privacy as there are no neighbouring properties in close proximity.

A charming holiday home for those wanting to experience natural Turkish surroundings and living.
Built by a well known Yalikavak based architect who specialises in building unique stone properties of this kind, the home exudes a blend of tradition mixed with contemporary sophistication. The property has been constructed with natural reclaimed stone which gives the house its authentic appeal, interior walls have been left without plaster and whitewashed to further compliment the natural look.

A fully fitted modern kitchen and internal dining area, 2 bedrooms (master has en-suite bathroom), family bathroom, landing with floor to ceiling fitted cupboards complete the living accommodation.
From this location, expect absolutely stunning views from inside and outside. Views from the living room and kitchen, views from the bedroom (and private roof terrace), views from the spacious sun terrace, views from the pool and gardens. A very special house, with very special views.
Yalikavak is on the western side of the Bodrum Peninsula only a 20 minute drive from Bodrum. Formerly a fishing village for the Bodrum area, Yalikavak is now one of the most elite towns on the Peninsula.
The new and trendy Palmarina Bodrum (Yalikavak’s improved and enlarged yacht marina) is now one of the most striking marinas along the Turkish coast. It accommodates some of the most luxurious yachts along the entire Mediterranean as well as trendy cafes, restaurants and many branded shops.
Yalikavak is home to some of Turkey’s best waterfront restaurants, bars, and cafes with a vibrant town centre. Despite undergoing significant infrastructure improvements, Yalikavak still preserves its natural charm. Thursday is market day and a great opportunity to experience authentic Turkey. There are also many little beaches, including two blue flag beach clubs.
Yalikavak is surrounded by hills which give some spectacular views of the town and nearby Aegean coastline. There are a number islands large and small off the coast of Yalikavak as well as several secluded bays forming different districts of Yalikavak. These make the whole area of Yalikavak an ideal haven for sailors and nature-spotters.
