About Patrina Marshall
Having been married for almost 50 years, we have 3 adult children and 1 granddaughter. Always having an interest in houses, we had a desire to build our own house and in 1983 we bought a plot of land and literally built the house ourselves whilst living in a mobile home with our children, the youngest being only 3 years old. Looking back now, it was really quiet a mad thing to do! We weren't builders, had no help from anyone, had no electricity for the first 3 months, but to us it was a great adventure! Living there still to this day, on a track next to National Trust common land, people pass by and ask about our house, assuming it is Tudor in origin. This is, probably due to the style and use of reclaimed materials, as well as the jettied front. In 1989 we bought a cottage by the sea in Normandy. It needed lots of work but we had fun renovating it. We plan to move there very shortly but some of the winter we want to spend time in our villa in Yalikavak as well, as we really love it there! Hopefully this will all be another adventure for us. My husband having always worked in engineering, eventually started up a precision engineering business in 1992. It ran for 22 years before we both retired and I worked with my husband and son, for the latter 17 years of the business enjoying it immensely. Previous to working at our engineering business, I studied for several years and qualified as an addiction counsellor working at a treatment centre for alcohol/drug addiction for many years, a job I also loved. Although supposedly retired, we are still property developing with our son. We especially like improving our villa in Yalikavak. We really do love it there and can stop for a break anytime, relax on our veranda, and look out to the stunning sea views. It's lovely also to have a coffee or meal along the seafront, maybe watch a sunset, perhaps with Turkish background music, or walk along the Marina, with its fantastic shops, bars and yachts. We feel we are really lucky!
Patrina Marshall purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Patrina Marshall chose Bodrum
The first time we holidayed in Yalikavak we immediately fell in love with the place! During the holiday we went to many of the villages and towns on the Bodrum Peninsula. They all had their different attractions, but it was Yalikavak that stole our hearts! We like the old original seaside part of Yalikavak with restaurants and shops, that used to be know for its sponge diving and fishing with lots of old charm, and next to it artists and crafts people display their paintings, jewellery etc. You can buy most things from the main town, set inland a little . Always busy, the cafes and restaurants are cheaper here than on the seafront and often more authentically Turkish. We love the specialist cheese shop! Nearby is a large market held on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Along the coast towards Gumusluk, but a short walk from Yalikavak centre is Yalikavak Marina. It has glamorous shops, restaurants, cafes, bars, and the most amazing array of luxurious yachts. Especially liking the Kudur area, we would often have a coffee at a cafe there, then owned by an elderly couple but now owned by a new family. They changed the name to 'Ca Ca' pronouned 'Cha Cha' and its now our nearest Cafe/Restaurant. When we looked at various properties for sale, we straight away saw the potential of our villa and knew it was for us! Although needing much improvement, it had amazing views and we loved the Kudur area. About three years ago, after we retired, we changed the layout and completely renovated the villa. We put in new windows, flooring, doors, architrave, took walls down, put new walls up, had a bespoke kitchen built, put in travertine stairs with wrought iron rails, three new shower rooms, put in a swimming pool, redid the garden, built arches, steps, a veranda and built a garage underneath. We bought all new furniture - in fact everythings new and the villa's renewed throughout! It has been a labour of love, and we feel pleased with it and hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do.
What makes this Villa unique
Our Villa is not part of a complex but an individual villa. The original owner bought our particular plot of land and commisioned a builder to make a unique house on it. One of the best things about the villa is the views. It is not only that you have wonderful views of the sea, bays and islands, it is also that there is often something happening on the waters in front of you to keep your interest. Fishing boats, Turkish Gullets and superyachts sail across the bays and from the villa sometimes it is difficult to realise how big the yachts are until you see people walking around it, looking as small as ants! In the height of summer, especially at the weekends you will see about 10 to 20 small yachts sailing out on their lessons, as locally there is a yachting school. As we have Xuma Village, a beach club, to the right of us, you can see people doing various water sports. They do a sport where a person ends up extremely high on a water spout. While not knowing the name of this sport, it is fascinating to watch! In July and August, at Xuma Village nearby, they have live music most nights which, when we're there, we really love and adds to the holiday atmosphere. The bands playing at Xuma are always of a high quality, with the latest modern music. The music never goes on later than 11 p.m. and normally ends earlier. If you have young children and were concerned about the music, it should be pointed out that all the windows are double glazed, and especially with airconditioning on, they are unlikely to hear anything. We personally know Kamel who owns the beach club and he bends over backwards to make sure he doesn't upset the local residents. There are no properties on one side of the villa, only hills. You frequently see wild goats here. Popular with ramblers, many like walking on the hills. The road goes down to the natural beach we overlook, with Potato Cafe plus toilets there. You can barbeque on this lazy beach or fish on the jetty - very relaxed and laidback!
