The Persian name ROYA translates to 'a dream come true', premonition and vision ... exactly what Roya's owners have created. Perched on a gentle sloping hillside just outside Gumusluk Bay''s traditional fishing harbour in one direction and Yalikavak with it's super Marina in the other direction, Roya offers the experience of a tranquil countryside setting and the buzzing cosmopolitan resort of Yalikavak a few minutes drive away. From the well-equipped kitchen to the contemporary designed and furnished living space which opens airily onto the surrounding sea facing terraces, there is little need to stray from the private pool and gardens. Simply recline, relax and soak up those views of the turquoise Aegean shimmering in the sun.

Perched on a gentle sloping hillside just outside Gumusluk Bay''s traditional fishing harbour in one direction and Yalikavak with it's super Marina in the other direction, Roya offers the experience of a tranquil countryside setting and the buzzing cosmopolitan resort of Yalikavak a few minutes drive away. From the well-equipped kitchen to the contemporary designed and furnished living space which opens airily onto the surrounding sea facing terraces, there is little need to stray from the private pool and gardens. Simply recline, relax and soak up those views of the turquoise Aegean shimmering in the sun. When it's time to retire to bed, 3 spacious smartly furnished bedrooms provide a calm and cooling atmosphere to aid a good night's rest. The master has an en-suite shower room with high quality fittings and tiles, the family bathroom mirrors this. The emphasis is on the outside 'theatre' of views at Roya: the sparkling turquoise waters of the Aegean lapping around the islands in the distance; the white washed walls of the village houses; the green of the pine trees on the surrounding hillside. Dine under the covered pergola during the day or evening, laze around the pool on quality sun loungers or gently walk down the steps into the cool waters of the pool. As the sun sets in the Aegean, walk from the kitchen with your favourite cocktail and sit on the purpose built padded outside sofa and watch the sun go down and the whole area around light up... Roya... 'a dream villa'. Rooms are sleek and contemporary in style and comparable to a high quality boutique hotel, creating a chic contrast to the casual rustic nature of the surrounding area. Bedrooms: Bedroom 1 Double Master with safety deposit box Bedroom 2 Double Bedroom 3 twin single beds ALL Bedrooms have A/C and purpose built wardrobes providing plenty of hanging and shelf storage space for clothes and belongings.

BROADBAND WI-FI OUTSIDE The terraces provide the perfect outside 'lounge' offering guests superb panoramic views of the Aegean sea, islands and surrounding hillside. PRIVATE POOL The PRIVATE pool is 7.5m x 4m and has 3 full width steps at the head leading into its 1.4m depth. There are 6 sun loungers and 2 shade umbrellas as well as the covered pergola for shade. There is also a pool shower and two purpose built bench seating areas with padded cushions. One down by the side of the pool is perfect for Sunset cocktails, the other is a comfortable shady place to sit and drink in the views during the day. SHARED POOL A short walk away takes guests to the large SHARED pool (with shallow end) for young children. TERRACES & BBQ There are sun and shady terraces across the front and side of the villa with a dining table, 6 chairs and Weber gas BBQ/utensils positioned for al-fresco dining in the 'conservatory' which has full length sliding glass panels. This enables the dining area to be open during the summer months and, with the glass panels slid to, encases the area into a dining room with a view during cooler weeks. The kitchen patio is open for taking in the sun but has shade provided by the umbrella. The decor of the inside spills outside as two purpose built stone and wood bench style sofas have been made and upholstered in the same shade as the internal lounge fabrics. Perfect for sunset cocktails. Lawned private gardens wrap around the side and back of Roya providing quiet places to sit and read. BEACH/RESTAURANTS/SHOP At lunch or dinner time, a 3 minute drive takes you to the restaurants lining Gumusluk Bay. OR, you can walk downhill to the Bay in 10/15 minutes. Yalikavak is a 15 min or so drive in the opposite direction. En-route to Gumusluk Bay you will pass a Bakal 'corner shop' which is open all hours and perfect for daily fresh bread and essentials. This is a 5 minute walk from Roya. More

About the neighbourhood
GUMUSLUK BAY Whether you are having your holiday in one of the resorts on Bodrum Peninsula or in Gumusluk, reward yourself with a day at Gumusluk Bay. Gumusluk is a small village at the tip of the Bodrum Peninsula about 30 minutes drive from Bodrum itself. This peaceful traffic free village seems a world away from the hustle and bustle of modern life, away from the well-trodden tourist track in central Bodrum. The whitewashed houses are covered with colorful flowers. Head for the two narrow sandy beaches and take your swimming gear, each curling around its own bay and separated by a beautiful rounded islet. At Gumusluk harbour visitors can explore Rabbit Island walking through history along an ancient causeway, enjoying the sun, refreshing yourself in the crystal clear sea are only so...
