Within the idyllic beach and ocean visible out of every window, the peaceful location this family-friendly two-bedroom villa provides the ideal relaxing retreat.

Recently renovated, each aspect of this enchanting property has been carefully thought about. The interiors are stylish and contemporary, with all the modern mod-cons you could need to make your stay as relaxing and care-free as possible.

Both of the bedrooms boast double beds and ample room to spread out with your belongings. Large sliding glass doors open out to an elegant balcony from the bedrooms, offering instant access to the breath-taking views, so from the moment you wake up each morning you can fully immerse yourself in the stunning surroundings.
On the ground floor, there is a spacious, modern kitchen, equipped with everything you need to cook some delicious meals! A breakfast bar allows all the guests to gather around, spending quality time as a group. The living room offers a more cosy atmosphere, with a large fireplace and relaxed sofa offering space for you to put your feet up and finish off your favourite book, or simply gaze out the glass door to the terrace and glistening ocean beyond. There is also a separate study and snug area.
Villa Merina carefully balances indoor and outdoor space, with each room opening elegantly to the terrace or balcony, so you can meander in and out with ease, maintaining a constant connection to your surroundings. The graceful private terrace extends out towards the beach, with outdoor seating and a dining area perfect for living the al-fresco lifestyle! Guests love to cook up a storm on the barbecue each evening, and finish the night outside sipping a glass of chilled wine as the last of the sunlight disappears from the night sky!
Villa Merina is located in the charming seaside area of Gokçeler Guvercinlik. This remote neighbourhood boasts just six other houses, perfect for those who want to escape the hustle and bustle of the busier tourist towns. Situated right on the beach front, guests can stroll straight out onto the sea shores from the villa itself.
There is a local bus that runs to Bodrum each day or to Guverclik regularly. If you choose to rent your own car, you can park just outside the villa or pull the gate open and park inside.
The villa is located just 15 minutes from Bodrum airport and 10 minutes from Bodrum main town. The vibrant city boasts everything from a beautiful marina to ancient sites and boutique shops, so it’s well worth a visit. For a traditional shopping experience, you can visit Bodrum’s farmer markets. There you’ll find stalls selling everything from hand-made rugs and clothing to fresh produce. For a dose of history and culture, the most prominent ancient site in Bodrum is the castle of St. Peter, dating back to the Knights of St. John. For fantastic views of the city (cameras at the ready), head to the ancient Hellenistic theatre, built into the hillside.
When the sun sets, the city comes alive with live music, and there’s an abundance of restaurants, bars and clubs. For the sports lovers, there’s an 18-hole golf course nearby, as well as tennis courts dotted around the peninsula. You’ll also find plenty of opportunities to take part in water sports like sea kayaking, scuba diving and parasailing. Wolf’s Point with its rock formations and Big Reef – a prime spot for stingray, groupers and stonefish – are a couple of the city’s top dive sites
