Sunset View Penthouse Apartment, A-9 Seaside Park, Gulluk
The living room of beautiful apartment is bathed by early morning sunshine and then at the end of the day the balcony has fabulous views of the great sunsets across Mandalya Bay. A perfect place for "sundowners". The balcony is nicely shaded through the day so it remains cooled from the mid-day sun.
Gulluk is a beautiful fishing village and resort just a short fifteen minute taxi ride or drive from Bodrum International Airport. The Bodrum Peninsula is described by the Sunday Times as the Mediterranean's hottest spot and Gulluk is just along the North Shore from Turkbuku and Yalikavak, where Turkey's rich and famous take their vacations.
Seaside Park is an exclusive development of only eighteen apartments in two three-storey blocks. They are set in their own private grounds with a superb large "infinity" swimming pool and a smaller paddling pool for children (which are open from April to October). A-9 is a beautifully appointed, spacious penthouse apartment on the top floor of Block A, furthest from the swimming pool. Our apartment is only 15 minutes from Bodrum airport and Easyjet, Pegasus, Thomas Cooke, Jet2, Thomson and many other have direct flights from the UK.
The apartment covers 105 square metres and has great views of Mandalya Bay from its three balconies, with the living room balcony being large enough for al-fresco dining. The large living room has two comfortable settees (one of which is a double bed settee), wi-fi and satellite television in the sitting area, as well as a full sized dining table and chairs in the dining area. The kitchen area is fully equipped with everything you will need for a perfect holiday, including a dishwasher, hob, microwave and fridge. The main balcony off the living room has patio furniture and is large enough for al-fresco dining. Both bedrooms are spacious and have their own balconies. Each bedroom has twin beds which can be linked to form a super-kingsize double or set as twin single beds. The main bedroom has an en-suite shower-room whilst the second bedroom has a separate shower-room beside it, which also contains a washing machine.
Please note that we have shown that the apartment is not suitable for children and infants because the stairs and balconies have some horizontal bars. Also the swimming pool is 1.7m deep throughout.
The closest beach has recently been extended to include a larger area for sun loungers and umbrellas. Also we expect a bar restaurant and some shops to open in 2015 in the Greenhill development which is just a short walk away. There is another beach within ten minutes walk which has games and a play area for children.
Why holiday here? We fell in love with the views and spaciousness of the apartments when we first saw the location and plans. It is in one of the most desirable and exclusive developments in Gulluk. We loved it so much that our family purchased several apartments, which we use ourselves and rent as holiday homes. This is an ideal location for a quiet, relaxing holiday.
What can you do in the area? A hire car is not essential because the dolmus minibus service runs regulary from the coast road close to the apartment throughout the season. However we would recommend a hire car if you want to visit Bodrum, tour the local area or play golf. If you do hire a car, then there is plenty of space to park it. Apart from enjoying the sun, views, pool, gardens and peace, you will want to enjoy some of the excellent fresh fish and food served in Gulluk. There is a shop just 100 metres from the apartment.
You will also want to visit Bodrum to enjoy the exciting cosmopolitan flavours of this great resort town. You may want to play golf at the great course at Vita Park nearby and you may also want to visit some of the historic sights such as Iassos. The Med Inn is a comfortable walk away or you could visit the beach clubs at Turbuku and Yalikavak. Family entertainment is provided by water parks and family fun at Gumbet, just beside Bodrum. The choice is yours!
The apartment has been furnished and equipped to a high standard to meet the requirements of a family looking for a relaxing holiday.
