About the Owner

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.

Fantastic holiday home

  • 5 of 5

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.

A great week in Akbuk

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Yasmin Gardens for a week at half-term with our two children aged 14 and 12. We had a wonderful, relaxing time. The villa was spotless and very spacious and had everything we needed including a good wireless internet connection. Transfers were arranged from the airport for £10 each which we thought was good value and took approximately 45 minutes. We didn't bother hiring a car as restaurants, supermarkets etc in Akbuk were all in walking distance. We loved watching the sun set over the bay from the roof terrace. A great week overall and we hope to return soon.

Brilliant Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent two very relaxing weeks in Akbuk. The villa was exactly as advertised, very spacious, well equipped, modern, and spotlessly clean. Our two children, aged 14 and 12 had a wonderful time in the pool by the villa or at the larger pool on site where they made good friends with other teenage holiday makers. We found the local restaurants excellent value for money and particularly liked Camli, the local fish restaurant. We hired a car and visited Ephesus, which we though was very interesting and well worth a visit. We would definitely recommend Ian and Deb's villa and hope to return again soon.

Yasmin Gardens, Akbuk

A wonderful family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We've just come back from a wonderful 2 week holiday in Yasmin Gardens, Akbuk! We were staying in Maynolia 23, a lovely spacious 3 bed villa with everything provided for a comfortable stay. The pool was situated just outside the villa which was perfect for our four children to cool off in whilst we sipped a glass of wine on the terrace! The complex had a great family friendly bar which served a nice selection of food until late and the staff couldn't have been more welcoming. It was a short walk along the seafront to a good selection of restaurants, perfect for a nice evening stroll. We found it excellent value for money and the owners very accommodating and excellent to deal with. We would definitely return to this villa and would highly recommend it to family and friends.

From the Owner

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.

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.

Further Details:

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.

From the Owner

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.
