About the Owner
Although a Mancunian at heart, I live in Barnet, London with my husband and two young children. Work and school holidays mean that we don't get away as much as we'd like to, but we aim to get away at least two times a year during the Easter and Summer holidays.
Guestbook comments from the owner
This villa is one of the best we have stayed in - great accomodation, location and the pool was so good my daughters never bothered with the two larger communal pools on site (even thought they are great too).
Opus Village is in a nice location with great views, and we visited nearby Yalikavak, Gumusluk & Golturkbuku, all with great places to eat & beaches. Opus Village itself is of a very high quality, with very helpful staff on hand (we only needed them to change the water in the cooler, but theres always someone around if you did need something else)
All in all a fanstatic holiday and we will be looking to book again if we can!
My husband at I stayed at this villa for 12 nights in June. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
The villa itself is well equipped, was immaculately clean and the pool was a good size for swimming. There are infact 2 communal pools on the complex also if you want a larger pool to swim in. We however found the villa pool more than adequate.

great place, villa, the complex, Gumusluk
Great place- the villa, near lovely restaurants (Limon and Beach Hotel Apartments on the waterfront), and even Bodrum seemed much are upmarket than I recall. The complex is very tasteful, and everything works etc. I'd bring coffee from the UK (as it's expensive in Turkey)- but that's almost the only thing I'd do differently. Hired from 'Proper cars' who were cheap and good- even when I trashed the back screen window!
Glorious villa , peaceful and perfect for us .
We have just returned from a 10 night stay at this lovely villa. We were a party of six . My mother and father, my husband and our 2 daughters all had a wonderful time. It is larger than it looks in the pictures and very roomy inside. It is well equipped with everything you would need for a holiday . We didn't switch on the TV or use the music system but they looked perfectly adequate.
The garden was very pretty and we enjoyed lazy days by the pool. The children also liked the communal pool which was a minutes walk away downhill from the villa .
The owners were excellent communicators and were happy to answer all my questions promptly.
A great experience . Highly recommended.
A real gem in Gümüslük
The villa was the first leg of our four weeks vacation in Bodrum and it was really a fantastic start. We were five; my wife, our 11 years old daughter, my father- and mother-in-law and I. We all enjoyed the villa very much. Situated in a well-maintained development named "Opus", the villa provides all the amenities a family may need. Clean and large pool, lovely garden, very comfortable beds. We ate all our breakfasts and dinners at the poolside in order not to miss the magicial environment. Laying on a sun lounger in the evening and enjoying a cold beer in the garden of the villa was a very special experience. Silence of the evenings relaxed our souls. Booking and key delivery process went perfect. We do recommend the villa to those looking for a fantastic holiday, particularly to families with children. I would like to thank the owners for sharing their beautiful villa with us.
Stunning holiday villa!
This is our fourth visit to villa blue and it's still our favourite holiday villa ever. It's a beautifully furnished private villa with a gorgeous sunny garden and private pool. But just yards away is a wonderfull huge shared pool that you can properly swim in. The views from both the shared pool and your own pool are to die for. Views overlooking the hills and the sea. In the evening you can sit on your own balcony overlooking gumusluk and listen to the crickets! The harbour down in gumusluk is about a 15 to 20 mins walk with lovely little restaurants on the harbour side. Pick any to eat at. They're all great. And yalikavak is just a short drive away with great harbour views and great restaurants and lovely shops. All in all you just can't go wrong with this villa and this location. Just go ahead and book it. I promise you won't be disappointed!
Just as lovely third time round!!
We were back at the Blue Villa in Gumusluk for the third time. Again as last year for three weeks in June. As always the villa was immaculate and extremely well equipped, plus a very prettily presented welcome basket. Very nice! Gumusluk didn't disappoint and we were made very welcome at our favourite restaurants. The on-site staff(new) were very good and very patient with us when we couldn't work the TV at least 3 times- my husband and I are not very good with the technical stuff! We would definitely recommend this villa to families or couples- there is plenty to do and see in the area to suit all ages. The owners are very friendly and are full of useful advice-you only have to ask!
The perfect place to relax and unwind
We have recently returned from a 7 night stay at this villa, it was perfect for us, far enough away from everything to have peace and quiet with stunning views, yet easy enough to get around without a car. Places to eat were within 10 mins walk with more within 20 mins. Local buses are cheap and easy to get to further areas and run regularly. The villa itself had everything you need and gets then sun till late especially on the upper terrace which we enjoyed sitting out on watching the sun set or relaxing before going out for dinner. We would definitely return to this villa in the future and recommend for couples and families.
From the Owner
“We decided to buy a house in Turkey three years ago after visiting many times over a number of years. We love Turkey and the people are so welcoming. We visited Gumusluk and Opus Village on a house hunting trip and fell in love with the area straight away. The views, the setting and beautiful gardens had us hooked and the harbour and picturesque bay of Gumusluk were also easily accessible.”
Activity and Interests
The villa is perfectly situated in a beautiful area close to the pretty fishing village of Gumusluk. The village, with its beach and renowned seafood restaurants is easily accessible, within 20 minutes walking distance or 2 minutes by car. Gumusluk is a protected area, being built on the ancient city of Myndos. The ruins and mosaics are still visible in the shallow waters around Rabbit Island. The bay is ideal for snorkeling and there are other watersports facilities available from the beach.
There are flights to Bodrum Milas airport from most UK airports. The flight time to Bodrum is approximately 4 hours. Easyjet and Pegasus offer scheduled flights direct to Bodrum all year round from Gatwick, Birmingham or Manchester. Charter airlines fly to Bodrum from most UK airports during the summer months (from May to October inclusive). The property is a 60 minute drive from the airport. Car hire is available at the airport, although not essential. Transfers can be arranged if required.
The villa is 1km from the beach and beach club at Koyunbaba Bay, 1.5 km from the village of Gumusluk along tarmacadam roads (it is shorter on foot!). Bodrum is 18 km away and the airport is 53 km away.
Whilst offering the opportunity for a quiet relaxing holiday, the villa also gives easy access to the sights and attractions of the Bodrum Peninsula. Other villages on the Peninsula such as Turgutreis and Yalikavak, with their weekly markets, are easily accessible via Dolmus or car. Bodrum, with its imposing castle and harbour, is a 20 minute drive away and has all the facilities of a larger holiday resort. Further afield, the ancient ruins of Ephesus are well worth a visit. Branches of the main Turkish banks can be found alongside the main road into Bodrum. ATM's can be found outside the banks, in Bodrum itself and in Turgutreis. Branches of the larger supermarket chains, such as Migros and Kipa can be found on the road into Bodrum and in Turgutreis which is a 15 minute drive away. The local mini-markets are very good, selling basics and plentiful fresh locally produced fruit and vegetables. For eating out there is no need to travel further than the village of Gumusluk. There are a number of excellent seafood restaurants alongside the harbour and beach.

“The property is just 15 minutes walk from the beach and fantastic seafood restaurants of Gumusluk. The private pool coupled with two communal pools mean that there is the opportunity to be quiet or sociable, depending on your preference. There are plenty of walking opportunities nearby and watersports for those who are more active. Bodrum, Yalikavak and Turgutreis are also an easy drive for nights out or shopping.”
