The Villa

Don't just take our word for it, have a look at what our guests have written:


  • "… this is paradise, by the way.  We have been coming to Turkey since 1984 and Torba is our sort of place and your villa is beautiful!" The Furlong Family, Liverpool, September 2015.  (Phil Furlong loved the villa so much, he made a video of his stay.   Watch it here.)

  • "Thank you both for letting us stay in your amazing villa, we have all had a fantastic time.  We have enjoyed bartering, boat trips, baklava,  Bodrum & Bitez!  This is our 3 rd trip to Turkey in 4 years and we all agree, the villa in Torba is the best!" The Loomes’, Leicestershire, July 2014

  • A wonderful fortnight! The accommodation and surrounding area are lovely.  A well needed relaxing holiday that I will remember for quite a while.  Thanks!     Matthew Bromwich, Bristol, August 2011

  • Really great villa and great to have a pool so big that I could actually do some swimming.  Thank you for letting us all stay, a brilliant relaxing two weeks.     Natalie Moore, Keynsham, August 2011

  • Another two fantastic weeks here in Turkey.  The villa is beautiful; many thanks to the Gibbs’ for having the courage to let it out!  A real home from home.  All the locals are so friendly and helpful and at last my Turkish is starting to be understood.     

   Yvonne Greig, South Queensferry, July 2011

  • The villa is perfect for a family of eight or, as in our case, two families; plenty of space to relax and do your own thing or come together as frends and enjoy the company on the veranda.  I would recommend this villa to anyone looking for a peaceful holiday with a beautiful view and surroundings.     Natalie Sykes, Edinburgh, July 2011

  • Our holiday was a blast and the villa was awesome.  Everything worked out very well for us, and we may indeed contact you again in the coming years for our future  holidays!     Ersin Uzun, Mountain View, California, June 2011

  • Villa Manzara is a more than comfortable place to stay in a fine location with all you could need in walking distance including the beach, and Bodrum only 15 minutes away in the frequent Dolmus service.  I’d certainly recommend it to anyone, whether its relaxing in the shade on the veranda you’re into, or getting some sun on the beach or sampling the night life in Bodrum.     Steve and Pauline Howes, Coventry, June 2011

  • "It was an absolute pleasure staying at Villa Manzara. My friends and I certainly made some life-long memories, thank you very much!"     

    V Tecchio, New York, September 2010

  • "We had a lovely time at the villa in Turkey - it was a beautiful villa and very well equipped. Plus, the weather was fantastic!"     

    Sophie, Amsterdam, September 2010

  • "I had a marvellous time and would want to come again.  Thank you for a holiday to remember!"     Chloe Prime (Aged 12), Kent, August 2010

  • "Villa Manzara was an excellent base for our exploration of the Bodrum Peninsula and provides a well equipped home from home."     

    Mark Prime, Kent, August 2010

  • "Thank you, Mike and Carolyn, for sharing your beautiful home-from-home with us!"     The Garner Family, Surrey, August 2010

  • "I’d think twice about choosing this villa!  If you’re a person who loves comfort, you might finish your vacation without seing the lovely Bodrum, as the villa is so beautiful and comfortable.  Spacy rooms, brand-new furnitures, tip-top air conditioning, quiet location, secluded and full-grass garden, clean pool, big olive tree in the garden, comfortable kitchen, perfect balcony.  The meticulousness of the owners is reflected in the perfect guest-manuel they’ve prepared by distilling their vast knowledge of Bodrum peninsula.  Nearby grocery and kids playground at walking distance is also a big plus.  Why leave the villa even for a minute?  It would be difficult to get out of door, even to see Bodrum, which is a heaven on earth at 5 minutes drive distance to the villa."     Cengiz Acar, Istanbul, Jul 2010.

  • "We had a wonderful week. The villa was very comfortable and perfect for the seven of us to relax with dinner on the patio or lounging by the pool.  The locals are truly hospitable and the local beach and restaurants / bars mean you don't have to go anywhere else.  I have already recommended it to friends and colleagues."     The Loraine Family, London, July 2010

  • "I think Bodrum is a great place and the house we are staying in is AWESOME!"     Zeynap Toprakbasti (Aged 9), Seattle, USA, July 2010

  • "The villa is truly home from home, not much has been overlooked – so thank you Carolyn and Mike."  

    The Mohan Family, Hampshire, June 2010

  • "The villa is a real haven of comfort and easily spacious enough to accommodate two families.  We’re really impressed with the quality of the furniture and equipment.  All in all, a fabulous stay in a comfortable villa – we’re sure that whoever comes next will have a great time too!"     

   The Annis Family, Surrey, August 2009
