Overview

Milas Apartment Rental Photos and Description

A 2 bedroom apartment with balcony and spectacular views of the Aegean Sea.

Our holiday home is situated within a small holiday village, just 15 minutes from Bodrum airport. The site is located on the Bodrum peninsula between Guvercinlik and Gulluk in a secluded quiet bay. Our apartment is ideal for families with 2 or 3 children but can accommodate up to 7 people. It is equally suitable for 1 or 2 couples.

The open plan living, dining and kitchen area has large glass sliding doors which lead onto the balcony which has beautiful views. The balcony is the perfect place to relax, eat and watch the sunset.

The fully equipped kitchen has a gas and electric hob, electric oven, extractor fan, kettle, cafetiere, washing machine, dishwasher and fridge freezer. We have provided some store cupboard items to start you off. All cleaning materials, washing powder and toilet paper are provided so all you need to buy is some food or just eat out!

Cleaning & laundry - fresh bed linen and towels are provided. A washing machine is provided for guests' use. The apartment will be cleaned on arrival and departure and for stays of two weeks or more a weekly clean and change of towels and linen is included. Should you wish a mid-week clean during your stay, this can be arranged for an additional charge - please contact us for costs. Please bring your own beach towels.

One bedroom has a double bed and the other bedroom has a double bed with a single bed above. Enjoy a sea view from both bedrooms, one having sliding doors opening on to the sea facing balcony. Both bedrooms have large wardrobes with drawers, bedside tables and lamps. They are also equipped with fans and mosquito nets if are required.

There is a family bathroom with a bath and shower over.

Bodrum town is about 30 minutes away by car or you can take the Dolmus (minibus) which leaves every hour in peak season.

Why not start off the day by walking to the sea for a swim. Afterwards, if you are tired, then jump on a chauffeur driven golf buggy to our apartment and enjoy breakfast on the balcony, admiring the views. The balcony is furnished with a table and chairs to enable you to dine al fresco.

In the afternoon, relax by the pools, let the children make new friends at the Mini Club and sample the food and drink at the Cafe/Bar.

Have a late afternoon swim in the large 300m2 pool which is so warm as it captures the heat of the sun all day.

In the evenings play 'Okey' or Backgammon in the Cafe area.

If you do not want to escape from emails and the internet then there is free wi-fi access in the Cafe area.

Both bedrooms and living room have uninterrupted sea views.

In the pools area the outdoor cafe is shaded should you wish to cool off and the indoor cafe area and gym have air conditioning!

The apartment can provide a convenient base from which to visit the many places, sights and attractions in the area.

We would recommend hiring a boat from Guvercinlik for the day and discover a secluded bay and swim in the crystal clear turquoise waters and enjoy the peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle.

Alternatively, there is a vast array of activities to do and sites to visit in Bodrum. Day trips are also possible to Ephesus, the largest archaeological site in the world and the stunning pools at Pamukkale although to make the most of your visit then an overnight stay might be be a good idea. Also recommended is a trip to the royal rock tombs at Dalyan and the Temple of Apollo at Didim.

The complex has 24 hour security and all cars remain in the car park so that it is safe for children to walk about. Transport within the site, should you need it, is by chauffeur-driven golf carts.

There is a small supermarket on site and in addition to this a greengrocer visits twice a week in high season.

A small basket ball practice area/court is available in the pools area next to the children's playground.

The Jacuzzi is unheated

About Ruth Guven

We live in London and are a family of four. My husband, Yilmaz, is Turkish which ensures there are no language barriers for sorting out important issues. We holiday in Turkey whenever we can, visiting family and then relaxing in Bargylia when we have time.

Ruth Guven purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Ruth Guven chose Turkey

Our holiday home is a comfortable 2 bedroom apartment with balcony and spectacular views overlooking the Aegean Sea. The complex boasts swimming pools, a jacuzzi, a cafe, a children's playground, a gym, a sauna and a tennis and basketball court and is within walking distance to the beach. The apartment is set within a well-maintained site with security and a help desk for peace of mind.

The site is never too busy or overcrowded - finding a sun lounger is never an issue!

Being situated outside the throng of Bodrum - it is peaceful and cooler than the centre town - the cooling breeze is very welcome in mid summer and the views - especially from our balcony are magnificent.

What makes this apartment unique

We will never tire of the view from our balcony and bedroom windows. Eating, drinking, relaxing and watching the sunset from the balcony make for the perfect holiday. The site is quiet, safe, well-maintained and has a help desk run by friendly staff. There is a perimeter fence and 24 hour security personnel at the entrances.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been to Bargylia before as a family - as a family we go on lots of holidays (we drive an old car!), to places all over Europe, but generally we only go the once! We had such a wonderful time summer of 2012, however, that we decided to go back to Bargylia for 2.5 weeks in August 2013 and we weren't disappointed! The accomodation was just as it had been before - modern, clean and well equipped, the pool just as warm and clear, the beach just as clean and friendly (this year with the added benefit of having a chap who was freshly steaming mussels on the beach....so good, eaten with freshly squeezed lemon!), in fact all food seemed to be locally sourced, freshly cooked and best of all for a mum with two greedy kids, reasonably priced! The little supermarket was well stocked and the employees, home owners, and guests were all very friendly - our kids resumed friendships made the previous year and my husband I just relaxed all day on the sun loungers (please note that this is the only holiday I've ever been where there are more sun loungers than people!). I really can't recommend this little slice of heaven enough. My family have now had two wonderful holidays there, and guess what.....yep, we've just booked to go back again in August 2014....for 3 weeks this time! We really have tried and tested every facility over the last two years, from the Dolmus to the taxis, from the beach bar to the restaurants, from the air-conditioned gym to the tennis courts, from the quiet beach at the side of the resort to the busy harbour at Bodrum. We are really looking to seeing it all again! Would definitely recommend!!

Muhteşem Manzara, Huzurlu Tatil

  • 5 of 5

Aradığınız tatilin anahtar kelimeleri güneş, yakın bir havuz-deniz, temiz ve bunaltmayan bir hava, tüm ihtiyaçların karşılandığı hijyenik bir ev ise arama yapmanıza gerek yok. Nezih bir ortamda, güzel bir ev ortamında Havanın 36 ve üzerınde gittiği Temmuz ayında bir taraftan güneşin keyfini sürerken bir taraftan konumundan dolayı evde klimayı çalıştırma ihtiyacı bile duymadığınız bir yer. Bir ev ortamında olması gereken tüm malzemeler var hatta fazlası... Yapmanız gereken bizim gibi tatilinizin keyfini çıkarmak.

Perfect stay with the most amazing view

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our two young children (2 and 6 years old) stayed for five nights in this apartment. Before we arrived, the owner furnished us with detailed information about arrival, the apartment and the surroundings. We found everything to be as described. We came by car and found that to be helpful to get around the area and for driving into Bodrum city (although it's not totally necessary). We have traveled to many different seaside areas in Turkey and this was by far the most beautiful we have seen. The apartment is built in a complex on a hill overlooking the sea. It provided us with gorgeous sunset views. Golf carts run regularly during the busy season taking people to the parking lot at the top or the pool and beach at the bottom. The kids had a blast in the large pool and kiddie pool. Both were clean and well maintained. The beach was a bit rocky on the shore but gave way to soft sand as you swam out into a small, private bay. We bought our food from the local markets or grocery stores and the apartment was stocked with everything else we needed. There is a restaurant beside the pool. We only tried it once for an English breakfast which we found to be very tasty and not too expensive. Bodrum city has a lot to do and many places to eat, but it was nice to be able to escape back to the tranquility of the apartment which was about a half hour drive from the city. We hope to go again!

wonderful wiew

  • 4 of 5

bellissimo appartamento e meraviglioso terrazzo dal quale godere della meravigliosa vista sul mare, sulla costa e del tramonto la sera.

unica pecca...il personale non parla una parola di inglese ed è abbastanza complicato capirsi, per questo non sono stati molto d'aiuto per avere informazioni e consigli o aiuto in caso di necessità.

fortunatamente la proprietaria, che è stata gentilissima, ci aveva preparati con varie mail piene di consigli sulla zona.

la zona è tranquilla e molto rilassante.

Great family holiday local!

  • 5 of 5

Hi, we have had several holidays to Ruth's apartment at Regnum Bargylia, and love it so much that we keep going back! The apartment itself is small but perfectly adequate for a family, and it is immaculate, with all mod cons - dishwasher, washing machine etc. The resort itself is great - it's very secure and has amazing facilities - the pool is amazing - the warmest and cleanest pool that I've ever seen on holiday, and there is a shaded play area for the children, as well as a tennis court, basketball court, indoor air-conditioned gym, indoor table tennis room etc. The on site restaurant serves local fresh cuisine and local prices, so eating there is a pleasure. There is also a small supermarket on site and a larger supermarket a short drive away so that you can cook in the apartment yourself if you prefer. Our children have always made friends there, and have a wonderful summer holiday there - everyone is friendly and as the majority of the homes there are owned, the place as more of a family feel than a touristy feel! We are going back this summer again (fourth year in a row!) so very clearly, we would recommend it to anyone looking for an action packed holiday for the kids, but a relaxing time for mum and dad!

Fantastic apartment in a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

Clean and very well maintained apartment with beautiful sea views, would recommend as a fabulous holiday destination.

Very easy to travel from and to Bodrum airport so minimum transfer times and very easy to travel into Bodrum via bus or taxi.

We stayed for two weeks in July / August 2014 and enjoyed fantastic weather. We swam everyday in the sea and swimming pool.

Recommend to visit the markets or try the days trips out or simply take a relaxing break in Bargylia.

Bargyila is located near Guvercinlik and is ideally situated, being only 15 minutes from the airport and 35 minutes from Bodrum town centre. Guvercinlik is a fishing village and is about 10 minutes away by car or taxi and here you will find shops, supermarkets, post office, cash machine and an excellent weekly market on a Monday. Many a pleasant afternoon and evening can be spent at the restaurants and cafes by the sea front which are also excellent value and cheaper than Bodrum town.

Other local villages on the coast worth visiting for good restaurants are Bogazici and Gulluk and they are situated between the airport and Guvercinlik and are also about 10 to 25 minutes away.

You can travel around in a 'dolmus' which run more frequently through the summer. These are shared mini-buses and very cheap.

The ruins of the ancient city of Bargilya, Tuzla lake and the Vita Park Golf Resort are just 5 minutes away.

Bodrum Castle, built by the Crusaders overlooks the harbour and the International Karada Marina. The castle grounds include the Museum of Underwater Archaeology and host several cultural festivals throughout the year. In Bodrum you can also visit the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus which was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and the amphitheatre also hosts musical events.

For water fun then visit the Dedeman Aquapark in Ortakent. Or if you want to go further afield then take a day trip on the ferry to the Greek island of Kos. Or how about going to Yalikavak to see the Windmills?

In Bodrum town there is also a lively nightlife. The old market is open seven days a week for clothes, leather goods, shoes, and souvenirs.
