Property of the Week: Akbük Residences

244Akbuk Residences: 2&3 BDR 1BA Modern Hilltop Apartments for €105.000-120.000 

This week we have another featured property in Akbuk, a smaller community benefiting from beautiful public beaches and easy access to major urban centers.

This complex is set atop the hills above Akbuk.  Enjoy soft summer breezes and sweeping views of the bay; watch dusk slowly lap across the waves from your sea-side terrace.  This is the perfect location for people who love being near town, but wish to be a little removed from the noise and bustle, who appreciate waking up to stunning views and love spending time out on their balconies, whether sunning and soaking up a book in the afternoon or having friends over for a full Turkish barbecue as the summer evening drips to an end.

All modern amenities and full on-site facilities ensure you’ll be in want of nothing.  The site features a restaurant, convenience store, full and children pools, open terrace, and fitness center for those days you’d rather relax near home, and a free shuttle bus service to help you reach the beaches and downtown with ease.  The complex consists of 4 blocks with 9 apartments each – small enough to be a real communities with neighbors you trust and know, large enough that someone is always around, even in the winter months.

The Basics: Two and three bedroom duplexes (two-story flats) available; open-plan living room and kitchen opening directly onto a balcony through sliding glass doors; high-quality construction materials with first-class interior finish; all modern fixtures; 24 hr security with CCTV; swimming pool and children’s pool; lounge terrace and public space with seaside views; on-site fitness center, restaurant, and shop; free community shuttle bus to town and the beach; in the neighborhood of  Akbük, ten minutes from downtown Didim and 45 minutes from the Bodrum Airport.

Main Qualities: Spacious living plan, new buildings, panoramic views, community area, full complex ammenitie, duplex and single-level flats available

Benefits of this Location: First, the view. Few residences can boast having such a stunning, sweeping view and being minutes from the beach, minutes from town, close to half a dozen historical sites, and within an hour from an airport. Akbük itself is a mere ten minute drive from downtown Didim, but offers the serenity and quiet of the country. It is a small seaside resort with the amenities of a mid-sized city due to it’s popularity as a vacation haven in summer. The community is located on a small cove, which makes it an idyllic place for swimming and water sports, even with children.

Akbuk Residences is:

  • Less than 10 minutes from the beach by free shuttle
  • 10 minutes from downtown Bodrum
  • 20 minutes from Turkish Breakfast at Ak
  • Less than 20 minutes from the ancient city of Miletus
  • 50 min from Soke International Hospital
  • 1 hr 3 min from Bodrum Milas Airport
  • 1 hr 14 minutes from Ephesus
  • 1 hr 30 min from Bodrum
  • 2 hrs from Izmir (Turkey’s 3rd biggest city with a population of 6 million)

This Property As An Investment Opportunity: There are three points that make an Akbuk Residence property a solid investment opportunity:

  • While spacious and reasonably priced, these are high-grade apartments that were constructed using all top-grade materials.  Since construction finished, the price of construction materials experienced a sharp increase, and thus later apartments of the same quality are far more expensive
  • The view: few sites in Akbuk can boast such stunning views.  Zoning laws also ensure that your view will never be blocked.
  • Location in Akbuk: As we mentioned before, Akbuk is a prime location.  Akbuk is a developing area with more and more people flocking to its shores each year.  However, development around the area is restricted by zoning regulations, and thus only a limited number of new complexes can be constructed.
