We had an amazing 5 days at Mandarin Villas as a group of 15. Tucked into a property with satsuma trees all around, this property offers both seclusion & easy access to Gumusluk village, where we ate every night at Nazmi Restaurant (another must!).
The kitchens were well-equipped with Turkish tea glasses, pots and pans. There was A/C in every room and the decor was very comfy. You could really feel at home.
The staff of the villas was very helpful. The tourism agency they work with is also excellent. We had a number of people leaving as early as 5am to get to their flights and their transfers went smoothly. Thanks to Vildan (the owner), Vildan, Rasit and Aysegul (the staff).
Even though the beach is very walkable, we recommend renting a car as there isn't a continuous sidewalk to the beach but staying here is absolutely worth it.
We had a lovely stay at the Mandarin Villas last week. We booked the whole complex for a family vacation, shared with relatives from Iran. Mrs Vildan, the owner, was an absolute delight - welcoming us with baklava, phoning to ensure that everything was in order and generally keen to ensure that we had a great vacation. Her employee, Rashit, took us shopping to enable us to be self sufficient and was on hand to restore the wifi after a power cut. There is a maid who lives onsite who provided lots of linen, beach towels and smiles at any request.
The three villas are very well equipped and identical in layout. There are three bedrooms, two bathrooms and an additional mezzanine floor sleeping one or two extra. The swimming pool (as with the villas) was immaculately clean and well tended and was a great hit with all of us. The gardens are extensive and pretty and the location is peaceful.
There is a village shop and a delightful artisan bakery and farm shop about 10 minutes walk and another 5 minutes takes you to the beach.
In all a delightlful holiday enjoyed by all of our party (regardless of age) and we will be back!!
It was a great vacation. Place has 3 huge villas with a great pool. We had a fantastic time. We stayed as 14 people and everybody loved it. Pool is also great for both kids and adults. Location is very close to beach and Gumusluk center.
We had a fantastic time at Mandarin villas. The villas are beautiful and even nicer than the photos (there are 3 which surround the pool area). Marat and his team were very friendly and welcoming and provided shuttle services to and from the villa as it is about 15 minutes drive from the main beach resort (which is beautiful with restaurants along the beach and colourful lanterns the whole way down the beach). Marat was easy to get hold off to request certain things like a baby cot and arrange a taxi transfer and was a superb host. The villas are very peaceful and set in the countryside so are difficult to find on GOOGLE maps, however the taxi service that Marat provides and/or arranges is excellent and definitely counters that problem. Great holiday for friends looking to have a relaxed time (or wishing to travel to Bodrum which is just 45 mins away) and very family friendly.
