Stunning, peaceful, incredible views

  • 5 of 5

Villa Joy is absolutely stunning, we only left in the evenings to eat out and shop, the views kept us entertained for the fortnight we stayed and there was plenty of room outside for lounging in the sun or sitting under the veranda in the shade. The sunset is spectacular, viewed from the stone seating area, a popular spot in the evenings. The villa is furnished to the highest standards, with a stylish minimal look but maximum comfort. The kitchen is well stocked with crockery and glasses, the appliances all worked and the water cooler was an added bonus. The pool is gorgeous, there is a ledge to sit on, many hours were spent sitting in here reading! The owners clearly take great pride in their property, it was absolutely spotless inside and out.

The villa is a 10-15 minute walk down the hill to Migros Supermarket, The Terrace Restaurant, Dolmus stop and the taxi rank. We didn’t hire a car while we stayed, we used the Dolmus to get to Gumusluk and Yalikavak, and hired a taxi back (40TL from Yalikavak, 20TL from Gumusluk).

We booked through Annie at Peninsula Villas. Communication with Annie was excellent and she took us through the booking and payment process without any problems at all. We also asked Annie to book us a taxi transfer, this was clean, cool, comfortable and on time, waiting for us when we landed. Our breakage deposit was paid back the day after we left, a highly efficient service.

Marion manages the villa locally, she takes great care and attention with the property and was very helpful with advice and suggestions when she visited us mid stay, she has a wealth of information to share and is on hand to deal with any problems that may arise, a true gem!

So, would we visit again? Absolutely!

Dream villa which lives up to its name.

  • 5 of 5

Having just returned from Villa Joy (June 2017) we can confirm that it is aptly named. We knew of course about the stunning views from the Owners Direct site but witnessing them first hand is fantastic.

The villa has been furnished to a high standard with quality lounge furniture and premium Bosch kitchen appliances, not at all like the basic 'white goods' you sometimes find in rental properties. The owners clearly have high standards.

Whilst the villa is not really walking distance from the nearest restaurant the area is well serviced by taxis if you don't fancy driving on an evening. Typical cost to pick up from the villa and travel to the next village or various restaurants was 20TL (under a Fiver) in June. all the taxis we used knew where the villa is located - incidentally Moonlight Houses is a gated community and very peaceful.

A word about Annie, the Property Manager. She was in touch before the holiday with information and met us at the local shop on arrival to lead us to the villa and show us around. She was on hand by phone throughout our stay and most helpful.

We have rented many villas in the last ten years and can confirm that Villa Joy is one of the best.

Stunning villa, incredible view

  • 5 of 5

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"

  • 5 of 5

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.

Très bon

  • 5 of 5

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.

Special interest holidays:

Good location for walking. Many historic sites around with Ephesus being 2.5 hour drive away and Bodrum Castle and the Mausoleum less than 20 mins away.


Koyunbaba beach is approx 10/15 mins walk from Villa Joy and can be reached by following the road through the Karya development. Public access may be restricted at some beaches.

Yalikavak beaches and the Marina are 10 mins by road. The Marina has a large pool and beach club. Gundogan bay has a large sandy beach a All towns on the Peninsula are close by so worth exploring on days out. All are different and offer beaches, water side dining.


Bodrum Milas Airport is approx 45 mins away.

The Bodrum to Kos (Greece) ferry can either be caught from the Ferry terminal in Bodrum or Turgutreis. This is a day trip and takes less than 1 hour and costs around Euro 25 per person.

A car is advised for this location. The dolmus (public transport minibus) runs along the main road from Yalikavak to Gumusluk, this is near the Migros supermarket (which is 1km, 2 mins drive away).


Bodrum town is 20 mins from Villa Joy

Yalikavak is 10 mins drive, Gumusluk fishing village and harbour restaurants are l0 mins drive in the opposite direction

Nearest supermarket, Migros, 1 km - 15 minute walk, 2 min drive

Further Details:

Yalikavak's town centre has retained its traditional Turkish charm. With its simple but stylish laid back atmosphere and friendly welcoming locals, this is its main attraction and the reason why holidaymakers return to the area year after year. Along the coast road en-route from the villa to Yalikavak you will pass some of the best fish restaurants on the Bodrum Peninsula huddled together in their own 'fish restaurant village' area. A couple of minutes further on takes you to Yalikavak's fashionable new Marina with super yachts, gullets and sail boats visiting from all around the world. The Marina comprises smart shops, bars, restaurants and a beach club which hosts open air concerts during high summer. The centre of Bodrum is less than 20 minutes from here with its own smart Marina, town centre shops and, of course, the famous Bodrum Castle.

Bodrum town has fabulous shops in the Marina area and also along the narrow streets of the old town near the Castle. At night, the Marina has open air live music starting at 10pm until the early hours nightly during high summer.

Yalikavak has supermarkets, banks, ATMs, Taxi ranks, bus station, petrol stations etc.
