Guestbook comments from the manager
We had a wonderful time, the wedding was fabulous and the villa was fantastic I miss getting up and seeing the view. The villa was beautiful, the pool was excellent and we enjoyed sitting on the terrace looking at the view.
Would certainly look to book again if in that area, next holiday will probably be around Calis area would love to find similar accomodation as Villa Joy was very special. Many thanks

Stunning villa, incredible view
Booking the villa was very easy and secure and on arrival Sara was very helpful in settling us in. The villa itself is immaculately maintained and very well set out with everything you'd ever need with all the latest technology and kitchen utensils. The view is simply breath taking and you can just stare out onto the panoramic sea view for hours. The area is great although a car in necessary to visit the surrounding villages of Yalikavak and Gumusluk which have amazing fish restaurants which the villa owners give great recommendation, there is also a good sized supermarket very close by to stock up the fridge. There was no sign of any of the migrant crisis that have been seen in previous years and the locals were very kind and enthusiastic and very accommodating with our young child. We will certainly be back to Villa Joy and have left with some amazing memories of the holiday.
"Superb holiday in a stunning villa"
The previous reviews are spot on & more..
The stunning views, spectacular sunsets, five star perfection & cleanliness of Villa Joy have to be seen to be believed, the information & help given before & during our stay from both Annie & Pascale was great, the glistening swimming pool was cleaned & checked daily,
Migros supermarket & a wonderful bakery are a walk away, we hired a car through Annie though we struggled to leave this beautiful holiday home,
We would recommend palmalife beach club for both couples & families, also pirate cactus water park for families.
Gumsluk is 10 minutes in one direction which is a very traditional town & marina with ample restaurants & bars.
Yalikavak is 10 minutes in the other direction which also has many good restaurants, bars & shops boasting a lovely new marina.
If you are looking for tranquillity, relaxation & breath taking views from all areas of your holiday home then Villa Joy is for you.
All in all we found the entire experience thoroughly relaxing. The Villa itself is increadible, we really couldn't fault the place. The owner quite clearer has a passion for perfection, and this was easily seen throughout the Villa with the choices of fittings etc. The view from the villa and seated area poolside were also second to none - so peaceful and just what we needed to recharge the batteries.
What can I say about Villa Joy, but simply beautiful, with stunning decor throughout. Everything have been thought about, leaving the most stunning view over the Aegean Ocean.
The pool area is just lovely, with this amazing bespoke stone table and seating area, to dine or just sit with a glass of wine looking over the sea.
Annie from Peninsula Villas told us about Villa Joy and we fell in love with it by photographs, even better to be there.
We will definitely return to Villa Joy.
The beautiful Villa Joy, stunning villa with an amazing view over the sea.
Decorated throughout with no expense spared, superb pool with seats to relax in or to take a swim. The large area around the pool is really lovely, with more than enough loungers, there is an amazing stone seating area, where my Husband and Son in Law spent most of their time sipping an alcoholic beverage most nights, watching the sail boats go by, with stunning views of the sunset.
Annie from Peninsula villas was also a great help in choosing villa joy, she communicated via email, text and voicemail too. There for us all of the time, Annie also let us know that a lady called Hurdem who looked after the villa would meet us to pick up the keys, to follow her directly to the villa and she did just that.
I would and have promoted the villa to lots of people, this villa is luxury with beautiful home comforts will return to villa joy in a few years.
Forty minutes drive to Bodrum town centre, Yalikavak area is lovely with some very nice fish restaurants too.
You must try O Sol O Meo, great owner, who is an amazing Chef, Pizza, and Pasta, and a Risotto the best I have tasted.
Thank you very much.
Villa Joy is really exceptional ! We have been renting villas in Yalikavak since 2006 thanks Peninsula Villa Care and it is the most beautiful house we never had ! Everything is wonderful and we spent very nice holiday. Thanks to its marvellous sea view, its very pleasant swimming pool and its relaxing terrace, we enjoyed our days in villa Joy.
Inside, the decoration of the villa is really design, nice and modern. All furniture, materials and equipments are very high quality and nothing is missing. In case, you need anything or help, Hürdem, the property manager, will be there to tackle everything. She is really efficient and will do her best to make you spend a nice holiday !
The location of the villa is also really convenient. Only 2 minutes drive to find Migros supermarket as well as a bakery where we bought our Turkish small breads every morning. In the evening, you can have diner directly on the beach in Gümüslük or in the very jet-set marina in Yalikavak. Of course Bodrum is also only 30 minutes drive.
Pictures you can see on the website are very nice but the reality is above what you can wish ! It is a fantastic place and we really hope to have the chance to be back in villa Joy next year !
