Thank you for your kind words and so pleased to know you had a wonderful stay. Villa Joy's location and views are tireless and amazing, at this villa we have repeat French guests returning for 3 to 4 weeks every year for that view ... Thank you too for your appreciation of the villa manager and our booking services, we would welcome you back any time.
Best wishes, Annie at Peninsula Villas Bodrum

“Stunning, peaceful, incredible views”
Reviewed 3 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

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!

“Villa Joy is more than joy..”
Reviewed 11 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Villa Joy is what a rental home should be like; clean, beautiful and comfortable. The house is tastefully decorated with just the right amount of style and function. Everything worked fine. The view is stunning and the house gives you many opportunities to enjoy it. Marion, the owner’s representative, was warm and professional. It is not all that common that you get what you see on the screen. Villa Joy is more.

“Dream villa which lives up to its name.”
Reviewed 11 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

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.

Dear Colin, we are very pleased to know you and your friends enjoyed your stay at lovely Villa Joy, we have passed on your comments to the owners and Marion, the locally based villa manager. It is good to know we are doing things right and, the combination of the property, the villa manager, the views, makes Joy a Joy we agree. Hope to see you again sometime, or any friends and family, until then best wishes and take care: Annie from Peninsula Villas Bodrum

Manager Anne from peninsula villas Bodrum is truly so helpful it just makes everything run like clock work, airport pick up , booking ,Hassan and his team in the New Mercedes Vito, deposit payback and communication throughout was excellent , there is nothing she doesn't know about this area along with some useful high end restaurants we didn't know existed, her colleague Marion (turkey resident) is on hand 24hr for and assistance - comfortable , Clean , Stunning to sit out and have an evening meal , totally relaxing holiday and with this been our very 1st review on trip advisor I would say to anyone reading this review , get in touch and do book , I don't think we would want to look elsewhere having used Villa Joy.

“Superb holiday in a stunning villa!”
Reviewed 4 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

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.
