Villa in Akbuk, Aegean Region, Turkey - 2 Minutes Walk From Akbuk Bay And Very Close To All Amenities
We are Ian and Deb and live in Gloucester with our two teenage children, Lucy and James, and our dog, Keo. We fell in love with Turkey on our first visit there in 2008 and bought our villa in Akbuk in 2009. We know how important a family holiday is and believe the villa and Akbuk has everything that you will need to have an enjoyable and relaxing holiday.
Owner purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Owner chose Akbük
We love Akbuk because it has everything that we need for a wonderfully relaxing break. The villa has stunning views over Akbuk bay to the front and mountain views to the back. Akbuk is very picturesque with a small harbour where there are some excellent restaurants that are really good value for money. There is not much better in life than sitting on the rooftop sun terrace with a glass of wine or a bottle of Efes and watching the sun go down over the Aegean sea or having a lazy lie in, not having to worry about finding a sunbed near the pool! Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions about the villa, Akbuk or the Aegean region.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa is a real home from home where you can relax and have a fantastic holiday. The villa is spacious and detached so there are plenty of rooms and balconies to escape to for some peace and quiet! The large pool is literally on your door step and there are other pools on the complex that you can also use or you can take a short stroll and swim in the beautiful Aegean sea. The villa is perfect for either a family or couples holidaying together and has everything that you need to eat alfresco or you may prefer to eat at one of the nearby restaurants. Everything is within walking distance on flat terrain so there is no need to hire a car unless you want to visit one of the local attractions, Bodrum and Ephesus are favourites of ours.

Fabulous modern villa with all essential commodities virtually pool side. Private balcony and roof terrace with fantastic views. Akbuk is a great little coastal town, very friendly locals. Super restaurants and easy access to other beaches and boat trips. Excellent weekly market.
So glad that you enjoyed your stay in our villa.

Wonderful family holiday
We had a really great stay in Akbuk with our extended family. Loved the villa and pool and that it was an easy walk for our elderly parents to the local restaurants. We have already booked to return this October!
Dear Simon and Sharon, thank you for you review and your booking for October, we look forward to you staying in the villa again. Best wishes Ian and Deb
We loved it!
We stayed in the villa for 3 weeks and loved it! The property was immaculate, with lovely furniture and nice touches such as pictures on all the walls to make it feel like a real home from home. The villa is right next to a large pool and we also liked walking down to the beach side cafe which was about a five minute walk away. The restaurants in Akbuk were all very child friendly and extremely good value, our favourites were Esinti and Olivia. We would definitely recommend the villa and Akbuk to those wanting a relaxing holiday.
Thank you for the review of your holiday, we are so glad that you and your family had an enjoyable time and hope to see you back soon.

Wonderful holiday in Akbuk
We stayed for 10 days in the villa at May half term and we all had a wonderful time (2 adults and two teenage children). The villa is a real home from home, spotlessly clean and very comfortable and spacious. We enjoyed just relaxing by the pool or taking a short stroll to the beach cafe which is about 200 metres from the villa. The restaurants in Akbuk that we tried were all excellent and great value for money. All in all a very relaxing holiday and we look forward to returning soon. Nic and Julie.
Dear Nic and Julie we are so glad at you enjoyed your holiday. You and your children will always be very welcome at the villa.
Best wishes Ian and Deb
A relaxing family holiday
We stayed at Ian and Deb's villa for two weeks in August this year. We flew with Easyet to Bodrum and had arranged transfers from the airport to the villa for £10 each. Two adults and three teenage children made up our family party and the villa was so spacious that there was always somewhere to chill out if you wanted some peace and quiet! The large pool is literally on the villa's doorstep and never got busy. Our children also liked using the pool by the restaurant and bar on the site. We found all the local restaurants excellent value and the food was always to a high standard. All were withing easy walking distance along the bay promenade. We also found the supermarkets to be well stocked and usually had breakfast and lunch at the villa and then ate out n the evenings. The villa itself was modern, comfortable and very clean, and the views from the roof terrace were amazing. We hope to return next year.
Dear Ian and Julie, we are so glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay in our villa in the summer. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Best wishes, Ian and Deb.
Fantastic holiday home
We stayed at the house with our adult children and grand daughter. Very spacious yet homely. There was everything we needed and more. The baby pool right outside the door was ideal. A really chilled out holiday The staff in the bar on site could not have been more friendly. Would definately recommend.
We are so glad that you had a really chilled out holiday. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

The stunning bay in Akbuk with it's crystal clear water is a 2 minute stroll from the villa. There is a sandy beach within walking distance. One of our favourite places to spend the day is at the beach club at the far side of Akbuk bay (see one of the photos). You can reach the beach club by Dolmus or you can ring the club and they will come and pick you up and drop you back at the villa at the end of the day.
Bodrum airport is approx 45 minutes travel time away, Izmir is 75 minutes travel time away. Flights can be booked through all major tour operators and Easyjet, Pegasus, Turkish Airlines etc. Transfers can be arranged through the site office. A car is not essential and can be hired for single day periods for visiting local attractions. Travel to and from Altinkum is easy with the regular very cheap Dolmus (taxi-buses).
All amenities in Akbuk are within walking distance. Altinkum is 20 mins drive from Akbuk for livelier nightlife. Bodrum with its stunning harbour and castle is a 90 minutes drive away. The historic Roman ruins at Ephesus are 60 minutes drive away. You can also take a day trip by boat from Altinkum to Bodrum or Kos in the summer months.
Akbuk has all that you need for a fantastic relaxing holiday. Great restaurants, a few small bars, supermarkets, ATMs, boat trips etc. There is a small shop on the site for all daily basics such as water, bread, milk etc. A large Aldi style supermarket is a two minute walk from the villa, while larger Tesco style supermarkets are a 10 minute walk away. There are a wide range of restaurants all within a short walking distance.
