About Property owner
I live in London and miss the sun! I used to travel around the world seeking the sun and doing yoga and fell in love with Turkey.
Property owner purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Property owner chose Milas
I fell in love with the location and really loved the design of the properties and the resort. (Designer Ev Talu - Istanbul's famous contemporary architect.) This is the perfect place for getting away from it all yet still having the amenities like bars and restaurants if you want them.
What makes this Apartment unique
The view from the property is astounding and means you never want to leave the place! Overlooks a pool that is quiet and private and it's possible to have it to yourself. Large south facing terrace great for relaxing, eating and relaxing in the Jacuzzi!

Very nice apartment. Spacious, clean, everything you need and stunning views. Plenty of pools, very quiet. Nice local beach you can get a free lift to. Lots of steps as very high up so make good use of the free transport cars. Ants were a small problem for the whole complex but we left a good spray under the sink. Just ensure you get in a car when you first arrive off the boat and ask the driver for your keys and passes. The office is not 24 hours. Get the boat back to Gulluk for a decent supermarket. Would definitely return.
Fantastic panoramic views
Brilliant penthouse apartment with amazing views. Not suitable for people with walking difficulties due to large amount of steps. The complex is on a hillside with steep slopes throughout. Access to the complex is via a complementary boat from Gulluk which takes around 30 mins. There are 6 pools around the complex with two large family pools in the centre. A small snack bar with shop is conveniently next to the family pool, and a nice restaurant at the harbour. Again complimentary taxis and bus transport guest down to the harbour due to the steep long hill. Having said all that, we enjoyed our stay, having a great relaxing holiday. Bodrum takes around 1.5hrs by boat and bus from Gulluk but is well worth a visit (or two) to take advantage of markets and bargains. Communications with the owner are excellent with prompt answers to any questions. Thank you Nazia for all your help and a great holiday.
Stunning views and well appointed apartment in a modern resort!
Nestled near the top of this modern resort, you are rewarded with incredible views over the bay and across to Gulluk... With two small 'local' pools both nearby, you can almost pool jump as the sun moves throughout the day; our favourite was the "quiet pool", marked on a map you'll find in the apartment (thanks Nazia!) - go seek it out if you're able. On-site you will find the poolside lounge/bar/restaurant, which serves pretty much all day - along with a small shop, selling the essentials. Head to the Marina Restaurant for something a little more classy, but still totally affordable. Now, if you want to do a 'big shop', head over to Gulluk (complimentary boat service) and fill your boots and for those beach bums, you can ask Yakamos Restaurant to collect you from the resort and whisk you around to Jasmine Beach; just be sure to spend a little money with them when you're there. It's worth noting that there is a car service around the resort to - their crew will run you down (and back up) from the marina as needed.
Lastly, for those who need to be connected, Wi-Fi is strongest near the main pool and you will need a voucher code from the main office.
As a first-timer to Turkey - this has been an incredible week's holiday.
So glad you enjoyed your holiday. Turkey is a beautiful country with lots to see and do. For culture vultures the village of Iasos that is a ten minute drive has well preserved Roman ruins worth visiting and further afield Ephesus is 3 hours away.
Gorgeous setting..fab apartment..excellent staff..lovely food
Loved it... would recommend to all!
This place is amazing. I think the best way to do this is pros/cons. First, the cons :
Hot tub on balcony takes ages to fill, and the bubbles don't work. But we did tell the maintenance men and they were going to order in a part so hopefully it'll be fixed soon!
There are a lot of steps! 66 from the apartment to the nearest pool, 169 (plus a big ramp) from the main pool.
The complex is stunning! Really beautiful, well kept, staff are amazing, so quick to help if required. We went in late September and there was hardly anyone there, which meant we had a pool to ourselves (if we wanted). All of the time!
The apartment is stunning! Massive balcony, amazing views, truly amazing views. There was a thunderstorm that passed across the opposite mainland and we watched it from the balcony, incredible to watch. Bed is comfy, so is the sofa, I think the DVD player takes UK region so take a few of yours along if you're not going out that much.
But why you wouldn't go out I do not know. Head over to Gulluk and go experience one of their many restaurants. The boat over is a great way to meet people and the time flies by. It was always a smooth ride when we were there. Everyone we met in Gulluk is so friendly. They have a lot of supposedly stray dogs and cats but they all seem very well fed and everyone gets on together. Great place if you like animals.
If you don't fancy the boat trip, the restaurant at the harbour is fantastic, really good food for a reasonable price. It's the only place we went to twice.
The community they have is excellent. Everyone is so friendly, easy to talk to, and great to ask for advice on the best beaches/restaurants/bars etc.
There is Wi-Fi across the whole complex.
Pool bar - good food, cold beer, great service.
Main pool has a hot tub thingy and cold pool next to it. Jump into one from the other!
Overall, if you want to get away from it all and have a truly relaxing holiday, this is for you. Highly recommended.
Thanks for the great review Chris! The steps keep you fit, and there's
'Always the golf buggies if you prefer a ride up the hill.
Amazing Penthouse apartment with stunning panoramic views!!
We ( my wife and I ) absolutely loved staying in Nazia's apartment. It's just so tranquil and relaxing. The balcony is enormous with 2 sun beds, a table and chairs and a jacuzzi.
The apartment itself is spacious and very well equipped. Comfy sofas and a really comfortable king size bed.
There are a lot of steps leading up ( and down ) to the apartment but this did not hinder our visit and there are free drivers dotted around the resort who are always willing to take you up the hill or to the beach, ferry boat etc.
The resort itself is fairly quiet, which we loved, and everyone is very friendly and helpful. Sinon in the little shop was especially kind and friendly.
There is a small pool very close to the apartment which is very quiet, we mostly had it to ourselves, and other pools dotted around the resort. The main pool was lovely and really big and again everyone was really friendly being that a lot of the apartments have owners.
There are a couple of nice beaches near by. Tepekoy about 10 mins walk and another locals beach around 20 min walk which we spent most of our time at. The drivers will take you to these for free if you don't fancy the walk.
Overall this we one of the best holidays we've ever had and we will be back!
A very relaxing, tranquil, relaxing place with friendly and warm people.
Thank you Nazia.
Thanks for the glowing review and so glad that you enjoyed staying there. Look forward to welcoming you back.
Horizon Sky Beach Resort is situated across the village of Gulluk in the Bay of Gulluk, which is a ten minute taxi ride from Bodrum Milas International Airport. From here a free private resort boat can take you to the resort in about 30 minutes. There are about 8 crossings a day to Gulluk from the resort. If you want to drive around the bay it takes about an hour from the airport. Located in a quiet peaceful conservation area surrounded by natural beauty and lovely beaches. Ideal for a relaxing romantic break and for getting away from it all. There are very few cars here and therefore no pollution.
The resort has a casual restaurant and there is a more upmarket restaurant and bar in the marina that is a beautiful setting and very romantic. There is a shop for basics, water beer etc. they also deliver. There are two tennis courts and a petangue (boules) track.
Gulluk is a charming authentic fishing village. There are a variety of bars and restaurants from simple local ones to more sophisticated ones like the Med-Inn. This is a contemporary boutique hotel worth going to for lunch or dinner. www.Med-Inn.com. Boat trips are available from Gulluk that take you to different bays and include lunch.
If you are interested in history and culture there are Roman ruins in the nearest village Iasos, that is a 10 minute drive as well as one of the best fish restaurants Ceyar in a pretty and authentic natural harbour.
One of the best beaches around here is a ten minute drive away Zeytinlikuyu (or Jasmine beach) with beautiful soft sand and clean water. It is a simple local spot with a few restaurants where you can eat home made food at reasonable prices. Here you will be able to pick up fresh and inexpensive produce at the small farmers market on Wednesdays.
Milas is a historical town and you may get a bus from the resort gates to Milas, where there is a museum and many historical buildings. Market day is Tuesday.
Bodrum is a charming busy harbour town. It has a bustling old town with designer shops on the harbour as well as a bazaar selling local crafts. It is busy on market days (Tuesdays and Fridays.)
