Bay View Penthouse Apartment, A-7 Seaside Park, Gulluk
Our guests love this apartment! The main balcony has beautiful views over the bay and the living room and bedrooms are so generous. Many guests return each year because it is only fifteen minutes from Bodrum International airport which is served by direct flights from Easyjet, Jet 2, Thomson, Thomas Cooke, Pegasus and many others.
Seaside Park is an exclusive, small development of only eighteen apartments in two three-storey blocks. They are set in their own private grounds with a large "infinity" communal swimming pool and a smaller paddling pool for children, both of which are open from April through to October. This beautifully appointed, spacious penthouse apartment, A-7, overlooks the bay, gardens and swimming pool from the top (second) floor of Block A and is furnished to a high specification. The apartment covers 105 square metres and has fabulous panoramic views of Mandalya Bay from all three balconies, with the living room balcony being large enough for al-fresco dining. The large living room has two large comfortable settees (one of which converts into a full size double bed), wi-fi and (limited) 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 and fridge. Both bedrooms are spacious and have their own balconies. Each bedroom has twin beds which can be put together 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.
We believe that "the price you see is the price you pay". The apartment rental is for the use of this beautiful apartment, but it also includes bed linen, towels, electricity, cooking gas and water as well. It is tremendous value with no hidden costs. There is a really great pool and quiet, sunny gardens. The beach and sea are only a very short walk from the apartment. There are regular dolmus minibus services into the village centre but you may want to rent a hire car, collected from the airport and returned to the airport. We would recommend a hire car if you want to visit Bodrum or play golf at the great Vita Park course which is ten minutes away. There is plenty of space to park the hire car beside or behind the apartment.
The Bodrum Peninsula is described by the Sunday Times as the Mediterranean's hottest spot. Gulluk is a quiet village on its North Shore, just a few miles along the coast from Turkbuku and Yalikavak, where Turkey's rich and famous take their vacations. It is also within easy distance of Bodrum itself and the family attractions of Gumbet.
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. You may also want to visit Bodrum to enjoy the exciting cosmopolitan flavours of this great resort town. You could also visit some of the historic sights such as Iassos. You could visit the beach clubs of Turkbuku and Yalikavak or make a day of the family entertainments in Gumbet.
The apartment has been furnished and equipped to a high standard to meet the requirements of guests looking for a great relaxing holiday. Although there are regular dolmus minibus services into Gulluk village centre and convenient shops and bar, we would recommend a hire car if you want to visit Bodrum, the local villages and beaches.
