In the kitchen there is an electric BBQ which can be brought out here for alfresco cooking & dining. The teak flooring is complemented by stainless steel railings and colourful flower pots around the perimeter to create an “in garden” feeling. There is an electric awning that extends out to give shade in the heat of the day, when rolled away it allows you to enjoy those gloriously starry nights and cooling evening breeze.
The large designer kitchen offers a “U” shape layout with loads or work space and cupboards and one end being a peninsular breakfast bar with stools. It is a great place to gather and socialise while preparing meals. It comes complete with all modern appliances including family size dishwasher, electric fan forced oven, 5 burner gas hob, full size fridge with freezer, a full set of cooking utensils, cutlery, crockery, electric kettle, toaster and fully automatic espresso coffee machine.

From the kitchen the hallway leads to the main Bathroom, 2nd bedroom, stairs up to the 2nd floor, laundry room and front door. In the hallway there is a large built in coat cupboard and concealed storage under the stairs.
The main bathroom is spectacular with floor to ceiling porcelain tiles, large glass rain shower cubicle, porcelain hand basin, Bamboo cabinets and towel cupboard. There is heater towel rail, hair dryer and make-up lights over the mirror.

The laundry room has a washing machine and linen cupboard. In the linen cupboard you will find a full set of bath & beach towels, spare tea towels, toilet paper, cleaning materials, etc.
The stone clad stairs from the hallway lead up to the 2nd floor where there is a hallway with door to the roof terrace and the door to the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom.
The master bedroom is stunning with a floor to ceiling picture windows with sliding doors from which you have the most wonderful 180 degree sea views. Lying in bed you look out over the turquoise waters of the gulf of Gokova, with the Datca peninsular gutting out in the back ground and the Greek island of Kos framing the western view; it is very special place to lay your head and wake up. There are “his & hers” built in wardrobes, full length mirrors, dresser with mirror and makeup lighting, bedside cabinets with lamps.

The roof terrace is accessible from the hall at the top of the stairs and from the sliding doors in the master bedroom. It is a very spacious area with fantastic views in all directions and extends around 3 sides of the 2nd floor. On the side with the best sea views is a large area with dining table and seating for 8 people. Around the corner, out of sight at the back is the washing line.
You have a private entrance to the apartment directly off the street. At street level there is an entrance archway with automatic overhead lighting and a pebble mosaic under your feet. On the side of the archway there is a beach shower to wash away the salt and sand from the day’s fun at the beach. Then the steps lead up to the front door with awning overhead. There is automatic lighting leading up the stairs and overhead at the door.
The apartment takes up the whole 1st & 2nd floor of our house. The building has total exterior insulation, all windows are double glazed, the roof & ceilings have heat insulation plus there is sound insulation between the ground floor apartment and this one. So the apartments are very quiet and are very cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Although there is full air-conditioning you hardly need to use it except on the hottest of days. Also the windows facing the street are one-way glass so no one can see in during the day, but beware; with the lights on of an evening it is like a fish bowl so draw the curtains in living room if you want privacy!
If you were wanting to stay in the winter months there is under-floor heating throughout and the apartment is lovely and cosy. There is the fireplace in the lounge room and while it does pump out a massive amount of heat it is not needed to stay warm. But the effect and ambiance is wonderful with it burning! The heating system also gives an endless supply of hot water.
Obviously when staying in the apartment it is all your space, for your private use, there are no shared areas. If you walk down the path to the side of the street entrance you will find a small vegetable patch. Here we try to grow some organic vegetables like rocket, tomato's, peppers, parsley, etc. in the summer and greens in the winter. You are welcome to share these with us.
Ortakent Yali (beach) is about 7km west of Bodrum Town and 2km from Bitez Beach. It is a much more quiet and natural beach than most in the area. However it is within easy reach of Bodrum and its many tourist attractions and the many wonderful sights and activities of the Bodrum peninsula.
From our apartment you literally walk out the door and about 40 paces to the beach, Ortakent Yali. This short walk is flat and once on the beach you will find it is a quiet and beautiful part of the beach. With trees on the water’s edge there is only a few beach beds scattered around and a paved promenade to stroll down. Heading west you will find a few boutique hotels where you are welcome to use their facilities, beach beds, bar, restaurants, pools, etc. About 500m further on the beach get busier and you will find many waterside restaurants specialising in local cuisine, seafood and some international fares. At the far western end of the beach there are some beach clubs offering water sports and night clubs.
If you head east down the beach you will be walking with the sand between your toes. First you stroll past several private beach houses and then 100m further on there is a windsurfing school & dinghy sailing club where you can hire boards or sailing dinghies and catamarans by the hour or day. Past these you will find scattered along the beach restaurants & beach bars.
If you are keen walkers you can follow the promenade to the west and get to Yasi beach or around the small point to camel beach. Or walk to the far eastern end, over the hill and visit Bitez or Aktur beaches.
The area behind Ortakent Yali is a beautifully green and lush area, there are kilometres of citrus fruit groves with small farmlets & local growers scattered around. It is a great area to walk around and there are some fantastic little restaurants to be discovered where you can sit under the shade of the mandarin trees and experience the local delicacies.
