Beautiful grounds, excellent for familiea
A fabulous villa, ideal for families with young children, very spacious and secure.
Glad you enjoyed!
Fantastic compound and house, perfect location
This is an excellent villa, with amazing amenities. We were a group of 8 in Bodrum for a stag. We wanted something that was upscale, well situated with access to Bordrum and Turkbuku, and gave us some privacy and space. Villa Tortuga delivered.
It's a massive, well appointed villa with plenty of room for 8-12. The grounds are beautiful and well manicured. It has a basketball court, beach volleyball, football pitch, pool, bbq, shaded terrace, tv/internet.
The host, Tripp was great and had a driver, Manfred great us at the airport. Manfred himself was especially a highlight for us - great service and advice.
Thanks Bob, glad you guys enjoyed, and good luck with the wedding!
Beautiful House in a quiet and tranquil setting.
We arrived at Villa Tortuga, very late, one balm and silent evening. The journey from the airport to the Villa was made much easier due to the accurate and comprehensive directions supplied to us by Trigg, the Villa owner.
Despite the lateness of our arrival we could not resist a stroll across the manicured lawns to a cooling dip in the larger than expected pool.
As expected, the pool was to become a focal point througout our 9 day stay, where most days we dined at the barbecue area at the deeper end of the Pool.
We have so many happy memories of our stay, Charlie the cat, the challenging Zip wire, climbing to the summit of the mountain that overlooks the villa and sipping coctails whilst listening to the call of the Imman from a distant place.
Manfredi, the housekeeper visited often enough and provided us with several recommendations on where to dine, all of which proved excellent.
We had one of our best ever holidays at Villa Tortuga and certainly hope to return on day.
A perfect house for active people
We just came back a really nice week in this house. Since we like being active on our vacation, we found this house perfect. You have a nice pool with relaxing next to it. The beach volley court was used frequently as well as the nice soccer area. There are tennis courts as well as a golf course a few kilometers from the house(car needed). Rental car is needed to get food or if you wish to go to Bodrum for shoping/restaurants. The owners of the house have been easy to communicate with and very helpful. We highly recommend this place.
Thanks Andreas, glad you all enjoyed your stay, regards, Nicki
Awesome villa, fabulous setting
I cannot rate this villa highly enough. The villa itself is spacious and tastefully done, it really feels like a home from home with everything you need on hand. It's especially good if you have small kids as they already have baby monitors, small chairs and small beds available, plus the pool is fenced off with a lockable gate. The kitchen is great - it even has one of those taps that filters the water so you don't have to lug a load of bottles home from the super market! It has mozzie nets on the windows and aircon if needed. There are loads of supermarkets nearby, plus a local market on a Wednesday which is amazing for fresh produce.
But the really wonderful thing about this place is the grounds it's set in! The pool is beautiful and there's plenty of sun loungers. It has a BBQ area, a volleyball court, a basket ball court and badminton! The kids will never get bored! nor will the grown ups come to that!
A man camer every day to check on the pool and maintain the garden and there was always someone on the phone if needed (even at 3am). The owners were easy to deal with and very helpful.
I'd recommend this property to friends, relatives and anyone who wants a break in the sunshine. It's a short drive to the beach, but to be honest there's not much reason to leave the villa!
Many thanks Rhi and Simon! Glad you both enjoyed your Bodrum wedding! Kind regards, Tripp and Nicki
Our amazing week in Bodrum
We were in this Villa in July 12, with another 3 couples from Spain and we can only say good things during our stay. The villa is amazing, with all kind of amenities, including a beach Volley court, Basket court, badminton... and a superb swimming pool with Jacuzzi. The house has a nice and big salon with an open kitchen and 5 rooms with very high standards. The place is very relaxing, surrounded by nature, but close to city center and several supermarkets. If you want to have a nice and relax holidays or visit some historical places, this is a place I would definitely recommend.
Gracias Juan Antonio! Glad you and your wedding party enjoyed your stay... Regards, Tripp and Nicki
Located in the village of Ortakent, Villa Tortuga is centrally located on the Bodrum peninsula in the southwest corner of Turkey, making it a perfect base from which to explore the region. The peninsula is made up of many small villages, beaches, yacht harbours and historical sites which means there is no end of places to explore within a short drive. Ancient Halicarnassus, renamed Bodrum, is a vibrant, cosmopolitan town and has a wide selection of things to see and do. There are many sites of archaeological interest right in town from the Roman amphitheatre to the ancient wonder of the Mausoleum of Mausellos. The seafront area is split into two bays by the Castle of St Peter. An hour ferry ride and you can be in the Greek islands, exploring Kos and beyond. There are many day trips from Bodrum, the most famous being in Ephesus.
Within walking distance from Villa Tortuga is the Bodrum Golf and Tennis Club - an 'Academy Course' - a driving range, 9 holes at par 3, 5 new clay tennis courts in 2012, and nice clubhouse with spa, bar & restaurant good for dinner or a sunset drink.
The local beach of Ortakent is a short drive away, approx 7 minutes.
Ortakent is also home to the biggest shopping and grocery stores on the Peninsula, with Tesco Kipa and Metro Makro being a few minute drive away.
