“Amazing!!!” Villa Serenity is absolutely breathtaking. Each room is pristinely clean and beautifully decorated. The bedrooms all have massive glass picture windows that overlook the pool and jacuzzi and the amazing view of Kalkan. If i could have stayed forever i would have.
I have visited a number of villas surrounding Kalkan and this surppased them all. A perfect holiday home.
“Amazing Holiday, would go back in a heartbeat” Beautiful well maintained Villa. Perfect location. Friendly atmosphere in the restaurants in Town which is a short walk. The villa itself has everything we needed as a family, from washing machine to microwave!! Private pool was lovely as it provided privacy.
“Kalkan Retreat - a great getaway” I have visited Kalkan Retreat twice now. Once in May 2011 and after a very enjoyable time in excellent accommodation I decided to return again in May 2013. I went with a group of friends and we each had our own bedroom and bathroom. My room had the most beautiful view out over the ocean with a small balcony with a chair and table to sit and enjoy the sunshine. The quality of the bed and bed linen was excellent. Very soft and comfortable.
There were 3 bedrooms upstairs. The master bedroom was huge with views over the ocean as well. Downstairs was another bedroom overlooking the infinity pool also with an ensuite bathroom.
The kitchen was well equipped and the lounge furniture was high quality and very comfortable facing the outside patio with the ocean in the distance. Around the pool were sun lounges for us all. There were also different outside areas. Little nooks for curling up and reading a book in the sun or sitting around in the BBQ area. A tennis table was the scene of many a competitive game. The cleaning staff did a great job being very discreet.
We loved the restaurants and shops in Kalkan. The food was excellent and the local people very friendly. I bought handbags, silver jewellery and clothes. We also had a fantastic Turkish Bath, massage and clay mask in one of the local massage parlours.
All in all I just love this part of the world and staying at Kalkan Retreat is so comfortable and easy.
“An absolute gem!” We travelled as a family group: myself, two daughters and their husband/partner and my 3 year old grandson. The whole booking process was so easy and Stuart, the owner, was so helpful and answered all queries courteously and promptly, and arranged our transfers to and from Dalaman airport.
The villa was in an ideal location, in a quiet area, a pleasant walk from the town, although we did indulge in taxis back as it was so hot.
The pool was stunning, and deep enough for the boys to dive in safely and much fun was had in retrieving items from the bottom. The childrens pool was perfect for my Grandson, although he did come in the 'big boys pool' due to the easy access via the steps and enjoyed it immensely.
Kalkan itself is an ideal destination with many excellent restaurants and lovely shops and the locals are very friendly and cannot do enough for you.
The villa was so well equiped we lacked for nothing, even down to tiny details such as socket adaptors and buggies. Tracy, the manager, was brilliant and rapidly sorted a problem with internet access. The boys really appreciated the Sky Sports for the cricket and golf, and my Grandson for his favourite childrens programmes for the bedtime wind down!
I just happened to e-mail Stuart about whether there was a gate at the top of the basement steps and he arranged for this to be done prior to our arrival!! That is exemplary customer service!!
We have had a perfect holiday and we would definately come again! Book with confidence!
“Very clean and spacious apartment with great facilities and comfort.” We were very impressed with the size, cleaneness and comfort of this apartment. Not only was the main bedroom with onsuite but the other two bedrooms also, which all family members loved.
As mother it was vital for me to wash, dry and ion a few clothing i.e. towels, evening dresses etc. during the holiday. Again, all equipment were available.
A pool outside the apartment allowed us to cool down at any time of the day, nevertheless the provided aircondition in all major living- and sleeping areas helped us indoors too.
May we also point out that the communication with the owners of the property were always very polite and welcoming and a guide during our stay helpful.
Hopefully we will be back one day... The Turners x
“Perfect Villa, wonderful location” Villa was perfect. Every detail has been thought for pleasure of guests. View was great. We enjoyed a lot in the pool. Rooms are big and comfortable. Customer service was great.
I would like to note one thing: you can go to town center and beach by walking down 10-15 minutes but coming back by walking is quite challenging due to hill.
“A beautiful villa, perfect for a family holiday.” We had a great week in villa Gül. Villa was just what we expected, perhaps even more.
High vegetation around the garden and the pool, providing full privacy and beauty of colorful flowers, just perfect for a family holiday.
The swimming pool is very large, comfortable and relaxing. Most of the time we were at the pool. We especially enjoyed swimming at night, under plenty of lights around it. At the evening hours we enjoyed our tea and coffee on the roof terrace, where the view over the city and coastline is beautiful.
Kalkan is a fantastic little harbour town, which offers an amazing choice of restaurants serving some excellent food.
Kalkan beach is a short walk away down from the villa, but the walk back up can be quite strenuous, so you need to use Taxis to return from the beach, they are not expensive and always available.
I would definitely recommend this villa/location to anyone.
“Superb!” Our first visit to Turkey and we were not disappointed. A beautiful country with lovely people only made better by our superb accommodation.
This fabulous and roomy villa is very much a home from home with every available convenience. The very large master bedroom with its own bathroom both of which have magnificent views of the bay of Kalkan was a joy to wake up in. Sitting around the pool surrounded by the lovely gardens was relaxation personified. The weather in early June was perfect for us – hot enough to enjoy dipping in and out of the pool but not so hot to make it uncomfortable.
Kalkan itself, a mere 10-15 minutes stroll away, has an abundance of restaurants to choose from – I think you could go to a different one every evening for a year. Each of the ones we chose was excellent with the staff taking the utmost care of my elderly mother. The trip in the “taxi” up to the hilltop restaurant was an experience and certainly provided an interesting tale to tell back home.
My teenage daughter is hankering to return next year for two weeks. I can understand how she feels. We will definitely be returning!
“Glorious views, great location, excellent restaurants” My wife and I chose this villa from the photo on the website and we weren't disappointed. Everything from being met at the airport by Ahmet (arranged by Steve and Lynn) to the wonderful layout and position of the villa and the great choice of restaurants recommended by Steve and Lynn.
The weather always makes a difference and it was great so we could take full advantage of the pools on site - infinity pool at the top gives wonderful views while the adult pool near the sea is a welcome retreat from the kids. We tried many of the restaurants suggested and also the hotel near the villa gives a 25% discount in it's restaurant and bars. One restaurant's service was so good they even went to the trouble of picking us up (Adam's) whilst Aubergine was probably our favourite for international food at reasonable prices. The villa itself had everything we needed with plenty of space and the views were as shown on the photos. A tip is that the hotel run a boat to the town and any orders for food etc at the supermarkets will be delivered to the villa free of charge. Hotel restaurants also do take-aways if you want them
We'd happily recommend this place and hope to return one day. Many thanks to Steve and Lynn for their help
“Top quality villa with the most wonderful views” We were looking for luxury and we certainly got it at Villa Beluga . Six of us stayed here for 2 weeks and initially found it rather difficult to leave as the villa and pool were so beautiful . The villa is so spacious, with every bedroom and bathroom in a spotless condition. We drew straws for bedroom allocation, no one being disappointed . Even the bedroom in the basement was spacious, cool and dark which was very pleasant. The bedroom looking over the pool is absolutely beautiful. The location is great , with Kalkan a short 20 minute walk away, or quick water taxi or taxi ride. The unexpected bonus was that the 2 small shops in Kisla had such good fruit and vegetables, melons even being delivered free from Bob's Supermarket. We also enjoyed eating out in Kisla at the barbecue evening and at Bob's on several occasions - the best fish ever.
All arrangements with Nick and Jilly were prompt and once at the villa Tamer and Hasan were always on hand.
“A brilliant family holiday and amazing villa” We had a fantastic time staying at Villa Iris. It was everything that Huw and Sharon promised it would be and more. The views are stunning, the villa is large, clean and really well presented. We have had a few villa holidays before and this was the best villa by far.
The pool is where the kids spent most of their time and it is ideal for a family.
Patara beach is amazing and one of the best we've ever been lucky enough to visit. It does get busy near the cafe during the day but later in the afternoon, or slightly away from the cafe, there is miles of space and shallow safe swimming.
Kalkan itself is a wonderful town with over 200 restaurants. We ate mostly by the harbour where the views are lovely. We found every restaurant to be friendly and the food good.
