“Absolute heaven, best holiday in 20 years, already re-booked”
Reviewed 22 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

i have some reservations about writing this review as I know it will make the villa more difficult for us to book in years to come and i know we will want to return again and again.

Booking Process.- i was a little concerned at making direct payment to James for final payment as the deposit was via PayPal, but i needn't have been concerned, this all went smoothly.

Transfers_ we booked this through Annie and all went smoothly a lovely minibus taxi, air conditioned, massive comfy seats and water for the drive, which was smooth and safe, arrived dead on time at the villa for our return journey again perfect transfer to the door of Bodrum airport.

The Villa- is wonderful, very pretty gardens fantastic pool, so warm and we went at start of the season, Fred and Ginger far more speedy and visible than i expected great fun ti feed and watch. the outside areas are where we spent all of our time and this is lovely lots of sunshine and shade if yu prefer, comfy cushions lots of candles for the evenings available and outside lights if you prefer. although neighbors are close on one side, James has shielded the garden well and we felt completely private. inside the villa is lovely, we used the downstairs bedroom as beds a bit bigger upstairs is a normal double and also we found the upstairs shower small. the bathrooms are beautiful and the downstairs shower is lovely.as the weather was so hot when we traveled we didnt spend any real time inside the villa except to shower and sleep, but everything worked well, and kitchen equipment glasses plates etc all really nice and plentiful.
The Villa is at the end of a cul de sac right on the edge of town past the Dolmus station, i am far from fit and i walked into town in 10 minutes without any trouble, the market on Saturday is only 5 minutes walk away and here you have the start of shops and bars so if you want a drink halfway to town its available. Also just before the Dolmus station was a small restaurant on one side of the road and a hairdressers opposite, the hairdressers was excellent as i have have long thick hair i was able to wash and condition get ready for the evening with wet hair and walk to the hairdressers where i had it blow dried into straight or curly style for just 15 Lira Approx £3.25, they also do all beauty treatments.
The town itself is wonderful, people so friendly, bars and restaurants cheap and plentiful, food of really good quality, some of our favorites where Nazars, la Pikant on the sea front, Azos bar, Osmans. we also enjoyed the fish alley restaurants and ate at a couple of these, bery good. Was disappointed with speed of service at Uncles but food and location good and we received free drink when we complained, sunset restaurant wouldn't bother, we heard good things about la villa and cool breeze but never got round to trying them, we will do next year as have already booked to return.

Finally James, honestly couldn't wish to meet a nicer more helpful man he is rightly proud of the villa and on hand for any issues which may come up, we had a heavenly two weeks , thanks you so much for sharing yur beautiful home with us, see you next year. Angela & Ron.

Thank you and we will welcome you back next season! We do know you enjoyed your stay at Hidden Garden because as you mention, you already booked again for 2016, and so have some other 2015 guests!

We also know you were apprehensive about making your final payment direct to the owner's account but you now know our booking and payment process is safe and reliable. 2015 is our 10th year of renting and we've never experienced any payment issues, all payments received are confirmed. We did understand your concern, especially considering some reports in the press recently.

Hidden Garden is the most popular villa we rent with many repeat guests returning year after year, yourselves included. Fred/Ginger, James and ourselves do our best to ensure guests get the holiday they expect.. by all accounts we appear to be getting it right! See you in 2016, Annie.

“Beautiful villa for a relaxing holiday”

We were a party of three, myself , my husband and a friend, all in our sixties. The location was perfect in a quiet area but an easy walk on the flat into the centre and all amenities. We particularly appreciated being near to the dolmus station from where we could travel to Bodrum and other nearby resorts. Gumusluk was our favourite, lovely seafood and beautiful views.
Turgutreis town centre maintains its Turkish character and the people are very friendly and helpful. We had very good food at La Villa and one of our favourite spots to watch the spectacular sunset was the appropriately named Sunset bar.
The villa was everything it claims on the website, very clean and relaxing with lots of lovely ornaments. The gardens were beautiful with two friendly tortoises. James was very helpful and accommodating, providing us with a welcome package as we were arriving late at night and meeting our taxi to show us the way at that late hour. We hope to return sometime as this was one of the best vacations we have had.

“The perfect holiday escape for relaxing and unwiding.”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

person found this review helpful

This was my fourth year in a row at this villa. Over the years the villa has been improved without spoiling its charm, and the gardens have matured to make the villa and grounds a private relaxing paradise, ideal for a romantic break in the sun.

The villa is located in a residential area and is no longer than a ten minute walk from the beach, the bars, the restraunts and supermarkets. Despite it being a residential area the mature walled gardens and trees provide a level of privacy that allows you to relax

The swimming pool is large and welcomeing but not too deep. The pool is located well to catch the sun for most as is the sun terrace and open air dinning area.

You dont need a hire car for this villa (I hired a car this time and did not use apart from arriving and leaving)

The local fish restraunts are excellent in terms of value and quality of food.

James (the owner) is a great host and considerate landlord in that he was there when you need him otherwise you were left to relax in piece without disruption.

I would seriously consider buying this place if it were for sale. In the meatime I expect we will book it for another relaxing break next summer.

Ah, what lovely praise and it is clear you enjoy your time at Hidden Garden. So pleased you enjoyed your stay again and approve of the new shower room and upgraded kitchen, James does try and keep on top of ensuring the villa is fitted to the standards guests expect and, as you have now stayed 4 times, he must be doing it right. Thank you for booking with us at Peninsula again, we would welcome you back in 2015 and so will James. Please don't leave it too late, 2015 bookings are already being taken. Enjoy the rest of the summer.
