Why Owner chose Bodrum
We're sure you'll love the villa as much as we do. The location is so perfect for viewing the gorgeous Aegean Sea and enjoying the breeze that comes with it; like living in Paradise. Most of our guests say they don't ever want to leave!
What makes this villa unique
This property really is unique. You'll find many 'extras' that most other rental properties in the area do not have, like special sun screens on all doors and windows (keeping bugs and heat out), large stainless steel gas grill, sunny spots, as well as shady spots to sit and enjoy the lush, tropical garden with its private pool and beautiful interiors that will make you feel like home. The sunsets from the terrace are amazing!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Sande & Reha, I tried to submit my report onto your on line form it but it would not download so I am forwarding it as an attachment.
We arrived at Three Hearts Villa late in the evening and were greeted by Sande and
shown around her beautiful home. We enquired about a restaurant that we could go to
for a meal but Sande’s husband Reha came up with a better idea. He phoned his friend in the Pamukale Restaurant in Gundogen and within the hour our take-away meal was delivered to the Villa including several chilled beers. We sat around the outside dining table on the verandah located near the colourfully floodlit swimming pool and took in the amazing night scene across the bay as we ate and relaxed after our long journey.
Leisurely breakfasts on the bougainvillea covered verandah became the norm whilst
taking in the panoramic view in front of us across Gundogan followed by swimming
in the lovely pool, sunbathing or relaxing in either the indoor or outdoor lounge areas.
Three Hearts Villa is located on the hillside a short bus ride from Gundogan (2TL pp
each way on the Dolmus which will stop at the Villa gates on request) but the Villa
has it all. An excellent size swimming pool, sunbathing areas, outside and inside
dining area and lounges, a large gas BBQ, TV, DVD/CD player, games and views to
die for both day and night.
The success of our holiday was down to the wonderful hospitality shown to us by
Sande and Reha who although lived in the lower half of the villa were there when
ever we needed help but did not intrude in any way.
Thank you Sande and Reha for sharing your lovely home with us. We thoroughly
enjoyed our stay at Three Hearts Villa and hope to do so again in the not too distant
We arrived at Three Hearts Villa late in the evening and were greeted by Sande and shown around her beautiful home. We enquired about a restaurant that we could to for a meal but Sande’s husband Reha came up with a better idea. He phoned one of the local restaurants in the village of Gundogen and within the hour our take-away meal of pizzas, kebebs, chips and salads were delivered to the Villa including several chilled beers.

Leisurely breakfasts on the buddleia covered verandah became the norm whilst taking in the panoramic view in front of us across Gundogan and Yalikavak followed by swimming in the lovely swimming, sunbathing or relaxing in either the indoor or outdoor lounge areas. Our everyday supplies were purchased at a nearby mini market but most of our meals were taken in local restaurants. To transfer to and from Bodrum Airport we used a local minibus company and we used these to take us to Yalikavak harbour where we hired a yacht for a days sailing along the coast stopping in quiet bays for swimming in the sea off the boat and eating a lovely lunch and afternoon tea supplied by the crew. A very enjoyable day out. No holiday is complete without a visit to Bodrum by night. Catch the local bus, the Dolmus, at the Sankop terminus found 100 yards up the hill from the Villa and for 7TL pp each way you have a very scenic 45minute ride into Bodrum centre.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words. Since J&D had trouble getting their review to post properly on the website, we were able to post some of their comments under "Owner-posted", but I think you've now covered the rest. It was truly a pleasure hosting you and your friends and we hope to see you all again in the future!
We (two young couples) stayed at the three hearts villa and had an absolutely perfect vacation! Sande and Reha were very welcoming and so nice! They offered great recommendations on things to do and places to eat in Gündogan. Although we hardly saw them once we arrived, it was great to know we could find them if we needed anything!
The house is beautiful and the views are unbelievable. We've done a lot of traveling and this home is by far the most spectacular place we've rented! We had so much fun hanging out in the pool and relaxing in the hammock. The location is great too!
Gündogan is great! Good beach, shopping, restaurants, and nightlife. Everyone is very friendly. We also drove to nearby Türkbükü, Gümbet & Bodrum.
We stayed in this villa for 5 nights (2 families, 4 Adult and 4 kids age 11, 9 and 7) and we had an outstanding time! Great Location, Breath taking view and charm that just transferred us to a different world! The layout is great, the place is clean and nicely decorated it makes you so relaxed. the pool is clean and sparkly, the kids enjoyed swimming labs in it. Sande and Reha Were Wonderful and very Helpeful, Gave suggestions on were to eat, shop and what to do. Gundogan is a very nice little town, not crowded but full of life, nice beach too. We took an all day boat trip from Bodrum Marina, it was very good and highly recommended and we visited other neighboring towns as well. Over all, We had a Wonderful Time, We highly recommend it and we would love to go back there in the future.
An elegant villa which is a 'home away from home'. Beautiful setting within magnificent colourful gardens. Many different area's to sit in both inside and out. Pool is a good size for a decent swim or game of volley ball. No need to seek outside entertainment, although very easy access by bus to various nearby towns which offer restaurants, shops, bars etc. Supermarket within short walking distance. I would recommend and return.
This villa is furbished to a very high standard, we had everything at our disposal with plenty of space inside & out. The pool is cleaned/serviced daily. A large double hammock near the pool was a very nice touch! Resident owl uses a chimney at a property opposite, very sweet ! we named him 'Twit-Twoo' he will shelter from the sun most days. We waited just outside the front gate for buses which were sometimes a little sparodic but overall we managed, I am sure it was more the heat that made the wait seem longer on some days! We didnt have any trouble with mozzies (thank goodness) but the villa has insect nets over all doors and windows. We would very much come back again to this fab porperty! The owners were lovely & even joined us for a drink one evening (thank you Sande & Ray for allowing us the use of your beautiful home!) Our last day we visited Yalikavak, WOW! wish we had found it sooner, it has a beautiful Marina, many restaurants & shops........ :)
We had a wonderful stay in the three heart villa. The view was amazing and the house was very good equipped, clean and well maintained. We didn't miss anything. We can recommend this house by heart. Gündogan and the whole Bodrum area offer a fantasic coast with various restaurants, beachclubs and shopping facilities. The turkish people are very friendly persons by the way. It definitly was not our last stay there.
