We were a party of 5 friends staying in the villa in early June 2017.
The villa is accurately described in the listing and has everything you could need for a comfortable holiday. Everything was spotless and in working order. Of particular note were the very private pool/terrace and the fantastic roof terrace which was a great place for and pre (and post) dinner drinks overlooking the bay.
Felicity was a pleasure to deal with and very quick to respond throughout the booking process and beyond. Whilst we were at the villa Yusef was friendly, helpful and easy to contact.
The villa is within walking distance of lots of shops and restaurants, particular favourites were Kaya, Pera, Aubergine and Küçük Ev (Small House), but everywhere we tried was good with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. We didn't attempt the walk back up the hill....which was no problem as a taxi from town is about £2!
We went on an excursion to the Saklikent Gorge calling in at Degirmen Restaurant (and trout farm) in Islamlar on the way back for lunch - would highly recommend both! If going to the Gorge (about 40 mins by car) go early to avoid crowds....we were there alone there and it was magical!
Overall a great villa in a great holiday destination!
We rented this lovely villa for just the two of us and there was so much space, so plenty big enough for much larger groups. The pool and garden area was secluded and lots of areas to chill out in either sun or shade, and my husband especially loved the hammocks for an afternoon snooze. It was very well equipped too - but with all the beautiful restaurants in Kalkan we didn't feel we wanted to self-cater. Families would be easily able to do so and there's a big barbecue outside too. Great bathroom in master bedroom - something about a wet room that just feels so cool after a hot day in the sun. We found it easy to walk in to town, a bit more difficult on the way back due to the last hill but a great way to burn off the excess calories consumed in the restaurants. Taxis are easily available but we didn't feel the need for one. Hopefully we will be back next year.
We absolutely adore Kalkan, its beautiful, idyllic, relaxing, everything you could with for. Your villa though, wow spot on, gorgeous, well equipped, prime location

We were a party of 6 family members who stayed at this villa early June 2016.
The villa had everything you would wish for – all mod cons including dishwater, microwave and washing machine, and wifi. There is a nice seating area outside at ground level, along with sun loungers, umbrellas, BBQ and outside dining table. On the top level terrace, accessed through the top level bedroom, there is a fridge, sofa, bar stools and bar with beautiful views overlooking the bay. The villa is very comfortable throughout and feels very homely.
The owner is extremely helpful and accommodating, dealing with all our pre-holiday queries, providing advice and arranging transport for us from Dalaman Airport. The managing agent popped in regularly to clean the pool and check that everything was OK with our group. Any minor issues were dealt with immediately and we were all really impressed with the standard of care.
Following the owners suggestion we decided not to get a car but walked into town every day, which is 10 minutes down the hill. We used taxis to get back uphill to the villa most of the time, especially when we had groceries. Taxi are extremely cheap and plentiful - £2.50 from the town including generous tip. Taxis are always right where you need them – outside the supermarkets, down at the harbour and close to the restaurants.
We took the free boat from the harbour to Palm Beach Club most days – idyllic setting, terrific food, and very attentive service – and all for a very economical price.
A great destination, a great villa and we all had a great time.
