Mike & Lynne Rowell
About Mike & Lynne Rowell
My wife, Lynne, and I live in Southport, England and have 5 children and 7 grandchildren. We come to the Villa for around 2 months a year now and have had great times with grandchildren and other family and friends. It's a joy to see them splashing away in the pool and enjoying the beach the play area and the sun !. We have been to a number of countries and particularly love Egypt, Turkey and Portugal. We particularly enjoy the hospitality and friendliness of the Turkish people, the scenery and of course the fantastic climate. We have successfully rented the villa over the past 9 years and have had a number of return bookings. We have a local Turkish property management company,they are extremely helpful and are there to make sure your holiday is a success. They can offer a range of services from Car Hire, Welcome Packs, Tours and additional cleaning services if required (cost to be agreed with them).
Mike & Lynne Rowell purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Mike & Lynne Rowell chose Güllük
We bought the property in 2007 and it was completed in March 2010. Over the past 9 years we have learnt a lot about what our rentals want from their holiday. Consequently we have invested a lot of money on improvements and extra equipment in the villa. Examples of this are a) Extended tile area around the pool b) new fencing for additional security and privacy c) glass panels at the front of the villa to maintain the superb sea views d) concrete steps into the pool for improved access e) new grass with sprinkler system. f) a brand new kitchen with many new appliances for your convenience. Recently a new supermarket opened approx 5 minutes walk from the villa - this provides all essentials you will need (with the exception of alcohol) and saves trips into town fro provisions. Previous renters have been very happy with the location, property and quality of service from our property manager (see the Reviews which are all written by people who stayed). We visited numerous sites in Gulluk but most were up very steep hills and on fairly large complexes. We were fortunate to find this site which has only 4 villas and is right on the seafront. We also like a quick transfer from the airport and this fits the bill at only 15 - 20 minutes. There are no flights overhead and no sound of the planes at all. We also loved Bodrum with its Marina, shops for a bit/lot of retail therapy and the traditional hammams. The dolmus runs frequently and means we don't have to hire a car.
What makes this Villa unique
Mainly the sun, the fish restaurants and the relaxed way of life. The local market on a Thursday is superb where you can buy a Kilo of tomatoes or oranges for just 50p! Many other vegetables and produce are on offer and you can't find better honey anywhere. There is also a beautiful boutique hotel (Med In) 5 minutes walk away along the promenade - here they have a lovely restaurant and bar, a jetty to sunbathe on, access to the internet, a pool and a childrens pool, jet ski's for hire - and you don't even have to be a resident.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Fantastic holiday yet again
Amazing Villa, great location, high quality inside and out cannot fault anything thanks Mike and Lynne once again. A real home from home
Beautifully presented and spacious villa in Gulluk (Turkey), with outstanding sea views!
Firstly, many thanks to Mike and Lynne for letting us stay in their lovely villa.
This is a truly beautiful setting for a relaxing holiday in Turkey. It is 1 of a block of 4 villas, with a shared pool that fronts the beach and has wonderful views. Whilst there are a couple of restaurants in the local vicinity (including the 5 star Med inn), the many restaurants & bars along the sea front of Gulluk are a mere (& cheap) 5 minute taxi ride away! Bodrum centre is also about 45 minutes away and certainly worth a trip.
The apartment itself is very modern, light, airy and spacious. It really is a home from home! We are actually not ones to keep going back to the same place year on year, as we like to try different places…. but I have to say this is an apartment we would definitely consider going back to at some stage in the future.
Levent, the Property manager was there to meet us on arrival, and was extremely friendly & helpful. He was always on hand for advice and couldn’t do enough for us while we were there. Alas the final word must go to our hosts…. Mike and Lynne were simply fantastic in their communication, both before, and a couple of times during our stay, so once again, many thanks to you both.

Had a great week. The area grows on you and the people are very friendly. When arriving at night you get the impression you are a long way from things but you quickly find your way around. Taxi service very efficient. Only negative was a lack of welcome pack when arriving late and wanting something to eat.
Great communication from the owners Mike and Lynn from the very beginning with lots of helpful information about places to eat, bars and taxis. We arrived earlier than check in time but were able to leave our cases at the villa and the manager brought the keys to us when the villa was ready for us. This was so helpful. The villa was lovely, clean and comfortable, the pool was great and the view spectacular. Levent, the manger was always available if we needed anything and kept the pool and surrounding area neat and clean. He's a lovely man. Gulluk is a cheap taxi ride away with bars, we liked May Day, and lots of nice restaurants. Green House was our favourite and the owner Ebor was really friendly. In fact everyone we met couldn't have been kinder or more helpful. In fact I went to the little shop a few minutes away to order water to be delivered and get a few things but I'd forgotten my purse. He said no worries bring it next time you come in. It was the first time he'd met me. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and would love to return and would recommend to friends and family
We stayed at the Villa late October a family of 5. The Villa itself is amazing and had everything we needed and more. Great location with amazing views. Pool area was lovely and so was the beach. Gulluk a short drive away with some lovely bars and restaurants. Transfer that was organised for us went very smoothly as did the pick up of the keys, a representative was waiting for us at the Villa to show us around. Great communication throughout by the owners and all the information they shared. Have already booked for next year.

We spent 12 days in this wonderful villa, it is just like it looked in the pictures and better. A spacious and well furnished villa. You could not find a better spot for a relaxing holiday. There is a 5 star boutique hotel and a beach bar within 4 minutes walk and Gulluk town a 5 minutes by road. We would definitely go back.
Thanks for your kind comments Brenda.
We’re so pleased you enjoyed your stay at the villa and look forward to welcoming you here again in the future.
All the best,
Mike & Lynne
The villa is situated on the beach close to the authentic fishing village of Gulluk. About 2 minutes walk away there is a small shop nearby which sells fresh bread, eggs and other daily basics. Gulluk is famous for its waterside restaurants, bars and beach clubs and there is a traditional weekly local market selling fresh local produce. If you wish to dine alfresco at home there is a lovely outdoor table and chairs on the main terrace to enable you to relax and enjoy the glorious sunsets over the bay of Gulluk. The beach is sandy and you are able to walk straight in from the beach or via a jetty (see pictures). Bodrum with it's fabulous marina, castle and exclusive restaurants and shops is only 40 mins away. It is also possible to arrange site-seeing trips to Ephesus, Iasos and Aphrodisias or take a boat trip around the scenic bay of Gulluk which is full of small bays and coves. Bodrum airport is just a short 15 minutes away from the villa - ideal after a long flight to Turkey.
