Apartment in Gulluk, Bodrum, Turkey - Close To Village, 1 min Walk From Marina, Peaceful area
About Janet McGroggan
We are sisters and our husbands who fell in love with Gulluk the moment we saw it. Buying this apartment means we can visit this retreat any time we want. We all work and have families and this is why the apartments is not used constantly. Because we have families we know how important it is to have those little touches like plastic plates. We have furnished the apartment in a contemporary and practical way with modern furniture disguising plenty of storage so you are not tripping over your suitcases. The apartment is spacious, fresh and has high ceilings and cool tiled floors. It is the perfect bolt hole combining romantic sunsets on the balcony with family friendly pool and indoor essentials such as TV and WiFi.
Janet McGroggan purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Janet McGroggan chose Güllük
The apartment combines easy access to a beach, restaurant and store with a decent walk into the village for larger stores, bars and a large selection of restaurants with fantastically fresh fish. The village has daily boat trips, either family friendly or party and wind surfing lessons are available. The Marina is stunning and Bodrum is a drive away for a day out, to sample a more touristy holiday e.g. water sports, Turkish spa, clubbing. Bodrum has a fantastic water park, markets and beaches. It can be really hot in the summer and Gulluk is a welcome place to return to as being a fishing village it is cooler and fresher.
What makes this Apartment unique
Our property can be family friendly, with a travel cot, plastic crockery and pool toys available for you. The apartment has been furnished as we like it and not just as a rental property. Every time we visit we add to the itinerary so it feels welcoming and not functional.

Lovely apartment in a beautiful setting. Well equipped and a generous size for all family needs, including a fully equipped kitchen, 2 bathrooms, beach towels and pool toys. Our three children were also impressed by the WiFi! The views from the balconies are amazing. The pool is huge, and very well maintained.
The apartment is a 2 minute walk to the beach and local shop, and a short drive into Güllük which has good restaurants, bars and shops.
Janet, the owner is very helpful and replied to our messages promptly. We will definitely be staying here again in the future.
We had a lovely time in this apartment, everything was fine, very peaceful place,with the spacious ,and clean property ,we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves ,in the residence pool, OBA beach ,boat trip around the amazing gulluk bay, and the waterpark located in the city of Bodrum, the owner was very kind and helpful as well as MAVI team,
Lovely Apartment with great views
The apartment is fully equipped with everything you need. It is on 3rd Floor with fantastic views. All the balconies get the sun at some point during the day. The complex has a very large swimming pool with kids pool which is fantastic for sunbathing and relaxing. Gulluk itself is a small fishing town with about 10 restaurants , which are cheap to eat and drink at. We used taxis all the time to go into town only 10 lira. There is a bus from Gulluk to Bodrum so worth a day trip at 7 lira. Of course the weather was great the first week in April which helped. I would have no hesitation booking this apartment again
The apartment is in beautiful complex just a short walk away from the village of Gulluk. The brilliant pool is just outside the apartment and has beautiful views. It was a perfect relaxing getaway for us as a couple but the apartment is large enough to bring another two couples or for a family. Couldn't recommend enough!
Janet the owner is a very helpful lady sending maps and local information about Gulluk and she can be contacted via email and replies within a 24hr period.
It is recommended that prior to arriving at Bodrum Airport you book a shuttle taxi from Mavi management which will take you straight to the apartment where you will be given the keys by the maintenance man.
The apartment was clean and tidy. It included a master bedroom with double bed and en suite and in bedroom 2, there was a double bed and single bed with plenty of storage space for clothes.
The kitchen was big enough and well laid out that i was able to cook each evening.....For those who don't mind walking it was about 1200-1500m from the apartment to the town centre and was hilly. The elderly might have a problem with this but for anyone who enjoys a walk it would be good exercise.
Gulluk has the 2nd highest concentration of oxygen in the air in Turkey and the balcony views overlook the coast which is approx 400m away.
The Bus/Dolmus station is located in the town centre and busses to Bodrum and Milas are available daily as a very reasonable rate...between 6-8TL each way and takes 50mins and 35mins respectively to each location.
Any questions you have regarding the apartment i was able to go to the Mavi Management offices for the apartments and ask them...there are also email or phone to contact them.
If anyone is taking laptop, iPad, Android phone and requires internet you will need to send your WIFI Mac numbers of each device to the Mavi Management offices via email so you can use the wifi facility on arrival or the day after.
Anyone liking a bit of freedom to travel around the area i would recommend hiring a car which you can do either via Mavi Management Office or source your own in Guluk.
All in all a nice relaxing break for me off peak and would recommend it for anyone who wants to relax and recharge their batteries.
Fantastic Family Sea View Apartment
We stayed at this apartment in July 2012 and again in July 2014.
It is a beautiful apartment, very spacious and bright. We have 3 children who last year were aged 8,8 and 11 and it was a great size for the 5 of us.
The apartment has two large bedrooms. The master bedroom has a large King bed. The 2nd has a double bed and a single bed. Perfect for the 5 of us though there was a sofa bed in the living which we didn't need.
The kitchen is a good size for a holiday apartment with a washing machine and dishwasher.
There is a dining table and chairs but we ate mostly out on the balcony. Hard to ignore those gorgeous sea views.
There is just a very short walk up a couple of steps to the pool which is really big. In the apartment were some pool toys which my girls loved playing with. Plus there were pool towels which was very useful. There were plenty of sun loungers round the pool and sun umbrellas which was needed as it was quite hot.
There is a shop not too far from the apartment. You can walk into Gulluk where there is a Tesco Express (Kipa) and a Migros but we mostly drove.
My husband and eldest daughter took windsurfing lessons from a lovely German guy Wagner, who has a restaurant, Urga, just a couple of minutes walk from the apartment.
We visited Bodrum, did a safari tour, went to Bodrum's water park and visited Ephesus. There is so much to do in the area.
The apartment had everything we needed, even a map and guide book, books for reading and a few kids games. The owner, Janet, was very helpful giving us all the information we needed, even how to work the dishwasher!
We will definitely be back to Turkey in the next year or two and we will be staying here again.
A number of beaches within walking distance, one is only one minute away and another is 2-3 minutes walk. Other beaches are within a very short drive.
This apartment is less than 10km from Bodrum airport, and 40km from Bodrum. There are taxis to take you to and from the airport and a dolmus minibus which runs regularly between Gulluk and Bodrum, and Gulluk and Milas.
It is 1.5km from the apartment to the centre of Gulluk.
There is a shop within walking distance of the apartment which would provide you with the essentials. Migros and Kipa Express within Gulluk sell everything from fresh fruit and fresh meat to electrical. There is a bank and post office in the village also. There are many restaurants from a casual lunch to a beautiful dinner. Gulluk is a fishing village and this is reflected in the menus though there are plenty of other options. There is a weekly market, on Thursdays, which sells local produce and handmade goods.
