You have the best of both Worlds here with the peace and tranquility of your holiday home but with Yalikavak and all its amenities a short 5/10 minutes drive away (approx 3-4kms).

The Hideaway is an original Bodrum summer house that was architecturally renovated 12 years ago. It is now a charming, beautifully kept and traditionally styled villa with exceptionally private pool, gardens and roof terrace with sea views. It is a real hideaway and a serene haven family villa. You have the best of both Worlds here with the peace and tranquility of your holiday home but with Yalikavak and all its amenities a short 5/10 minutes drive away (approx 3-4kms). The beauty of this house is its coolness in the heat of summer, there is also Air Conditioning in all bedrooms. The ground floor was converted to a large open plan kitchen, living and dining area. The through breezes that this openness provides means this ground floor is alway a cool and easy living area. The dining area opens out on to a west facing front terrace, a cool refuge during the heat of the day. The interior has been tastefully and characterfully decorated incorporating old traditional Turkish artefacts and textiles along with New Zealand art, reflecting the origins of the owner. Gokcebel is the location of choice for many non Turkish home owners in the area, due to its authentic feel and peaceful way of life but also having everything else close by. There is a village shop just 5 minute's walk and a large supermarket (MMMigros) 15 minute's walk or a 5 minute drive. The Hideaway's private grounds are walled and gated with an entrance gate which takes you into the front garden with the option of using the front door or the back. Generally the back entrance is easier for inside access especially when carrying luggage and shopping, the rear entrance leads directly via the back door into the kitchen area. GROUND FLOOR Entering the house from the back, first left is a guest bathroom and laundry area. To the right is a pantry that is kept locked by owner. The rest of the downstairs area is open plan with arches to the open plan kitchen, living room and dining room. A terrace leads from the dining area, this is a haven in the heat of summer as it has comfortable seating and is protected from sunlight until well into the late afternoon. The kitchen has a gas hob, electric oven, a dish washer and fridge freezer. It is fully equipped with all cooking and serving utensils and crockery. Between the kitchen/internal dining area is the beautiful appointed light and airy living room with open fire place. The dining area opens to a covered balcony, a much appreciated place during the hot summer month as well as during the mild but rainy winters. A storage room and a spacious guest bathroom complete this floor. The living room is a comfortable sitting area at any time of the day as it has plenty of light, windows that offer a through breeze in the heat of the day but no direct sunlight. It is interestingly decorated with Turkish artefacts and carpets with a touch of Oceania! The entire downstairs area is floored with terracotta tiles. There are radiators in this, and all areas of the house making this a property for all seasons . FIRST FLOOR Stairs lead to the landing hallway, sleeping area and bathroom. The bathroom is a generous size, with an excellent power shower, walk-in shower and a wonderful view overlooking the back garden, pool and the uninhabited mountains beyond. To the right is the smaller light filled double bedroom with fitted wardrobe and the same view as the bathroom. Off the hallway is then the twin bedroom on the right, this opens onto a balcony shared with the master bedroom and a view beyond the village out to the sea. The spacious and light filled master bedroom, opens onto a beautiful private terrace with views over the village and out to the sea. This terrace also has an entrance from the adjoining twin bedroom. The master bedroom is the size of a studio with its generous and comfortable couch, fitted wardrobes and a TV and video player. Again plenty of light, this room has access to the shared balcony and a through breeze provided by the windows and balcony door. All bedrooms have Air Conditioning, the master bedroom also has a ceiling fan. FREE BROADBAND WIFI Internet is available through the building and most parts of the garden There is a Bose dock available. The private swimming pool has a very comfortable cushion filled sitting area under a pergola of wisteria leaves. A roof terrace with built-in cushioned sitting area is a favourite spot during the evenings, to enjoy the breeze and watch the sunset over the bay. The back garden is enclosed by tall trees on all fence lines, providing privacy in all seating areas and the pool. There is a seating area close to the kitchen that is perfect in the mornings for eating breakfast in shady and private surroundings. More

About the neighbourhood
Located in a quiet residential area just on the fringes of Yalikavak. Gökcebel is part of Yalikavak, and the town and Marina is reached within under a 10 minute drive. The house is 5 minutes walk to the local general store and 15 minutes downhill walk to Migros supermarket, a very well provided supermarket. There is a local produce market on one side of the village on a Tuesday and on the other side behind Migros on a Sunday. YALIKAVAK 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.
Getting around
Bodrum Milas International airport services the Bodrum Peninsula and is approx a 45 minute drive away (50 kms). Dalaman airport is 3 hours drive away. Car hire is advised for this location for shopping, sightseeing. But, you could walk and use the dolmus (public transport minibus) to get around if you are the more adventurous type who prefer to use local public transport. Yalikavak is a short drive away. Dolmus minibuses go to most local villages as well as Bodrum and are a cheap way of getting around. Other towns worth a visit by bus are Gundogan, Gumusluk, Akyarlar, Torba, Turgutreis and buses to these run about every 20 mins or so until late at night.
