“Perfect location, wonderful villa” Having stayed in Kalkan before, we knew we liked the area so particularly wanted a villa in Kisla.
The villa was perfect for our needs, well equipped and the view is beautiful.
The beach club nearby is free and the water is crystal clear.
Any tiny issue we had with the villa was immediately remedied and nothing seemed too much trouble to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
Communication was always answered promptly and our damage deposit was refunded in a timely manner.
Highly recommend it and Tim!
“Relaxing stay at Villa Esra” Lovely place stayed in area for the last 6 yrs at a 5 star hotel but first time at villa as long as you do not mind a good hill walk its great but if your unable to walk far not really suited as shop is down a good incline but taxis are not expensive. Malcolm and Emi are lovely and it made my day seeing their dog as I also have same breed , my grown up children loved it and became youngsters again in pool as no one to see them making a fool of them selves but this also included myself and husband . Could do with a set of new cooking utensils and more glasses but that's the only negative bit I could say . If any one is thinking of going to this Villa I highly suggest it as it was a lovely and relaxing stay but with night life if you wanted it .
“Quiet,peaceful and totally relaxing. Garden lovely and villa surrounded by farmland with different crops all year long.” Water filter in kitchen saves a lot of carrying . Short walk into Dalyan for local shops bars and restaurants . People friendly and helpful. Great bus service and water taxi to turtle beach. We have returned to this villa many times as you are free to relax or explore as you wish.
“We had a lovely time, thanks to Mrs. Duggan and her family and staff! We will definitely book again :)” We (my partner, my 10 year old son and I) stayed for 8 days. The appartment was lovely, extremely clean, we could have ate off the floor! Very spacious and equiped with everything we needed. Mrs. Duggan, her family and staff are lovely and very helpful. When we got there she explained to us how to get to all important places and gave us a map. The appartment house is well looked after, security at door, downstairs there's a computer with free wifi. If you need anything, you can ask day or night, someone will always sort it out asap. The beach is only a 5 min walk away from the appartment house, as well as restaurants, pubs, lots of shops, places to book trips, taxis right at the corner...only takes a few mins to get to alanya by bus or taxi, all nice and cheap. All together we had the lovliest holiday and are hoping to be back next year. We would recommend the appartments to everyone, the place is very international and also there were holiday makers of all ages.
We can also recommend the offered airport transfers, brandnew spacious taxis with aircon and very polite drivers that even provided us with cold water.
“Perfect in every way!” This was our second visit to Villa Kalkan Blue - the first time was in 2007. Still as fabulous now as it was! Delighted that a new supermarket has sprung up only 60 metres away too! There were just three of us, myself, my daughter and her husband and we would all recommend the villa 100%. Kalkan is a gorgeous little town and the people are delightful and extremely friendly.
“BEST visit to Turkey” Wonderful Villa
This was our 3rd time at Villa Tara, we love it. The villa is ideal for our family with lots of space both inside and out. The pool is a suntrap with lots of sun loungers for chilling out, they even supply beach towels. The views are superb. We spent many evenings on the roof terrace and dining terrace just taking in the scenery. The villa is really close to the local beach and there are good restaurants only 5 minutes away. We hired a car this time and got out to see the local area. Patara beach and pink beach club were our favourites. It is only a 15 minute walk into Kalkan and we enjoyed a few nights in the harbour. There are lots of good places to eat here. We also managed a boat trip- really fun for the kids. The villa is well equipped- everything you need. There is a good supply of books and DVDs if you want a night in. Huseyin was incredibly helpful- he provided us with information before we went and can organise transfers. If you want a peaceful location but still be close to restaurants, beaches and shops this is the perfect villa. We had wonderful holiday and will definitely be back.
“Our best villa holiday ever!” The villa exceeded our expectations in both quality and location. The villa is equipped to a high standard and is very well maintained.
You are looked after by a very efficient maintenance team who look after your villa during your stay and deliver water for an automatic cooler and fresh daily bread should this be required.
You overlook Kalamar bay and enjoy stunning views from most rooms and terraces of the villa.
The villa is situated in a quieter part of Kalkan with several good restaurants and a couple of well stocked small supermarkets within a 5 minute walk. However, the lovely harbour town of Kalkan is only a £5 taxi ride away or a 20 minute downhill walk. Would recommend a taxi ride home though - which is no problem at any time of night due to the excellent taxi system.
Kalkan has an upmarket feel with over 100 great restaurants (minimal sky TV bars with all day football), so need to ever eat in the same place twice. Many are situated on rooftop terraces and our experience of the food was never a disappointment. Great food for vegetarians also - you can enjoy genuine Turkish food without having to eat pizza and pasta if prefer not to!
The locals are very friendly and seem genuinely pleased you are there.
Our teenagers discovered the 2 'clubs' and spent several nights in town until the small hours, making their own way back by taxi. It felt very safe.
There is plenty to do if you want a day away from the villa. Canoeing, tubing, historic sites, great beaches (pebble and sand) and water sports. Trips can be easily arranged locally and you wouldn't need a car to enjoy the holiday. We did hire a car for a few days and went further afield - the roads were surprisingly good and quiet.
The owner is very helpful and gave us plenty of useful information. She also arranged taxi transfers from the airport for us which were excellent and good value as well as arranging our hire car to be delivered to the villa.
The only 'negative' comment would be that I don't think that the location would be that ideal for the very elderly or very young due its hilly nature. However, for us this was no problem with older children and of course is why the views are always so great.
All in all a fantastic holiday and the first time we have had a unanimous vote to visit the same place twice!
“Mekik Apartments - homely, quiet and relaxing!” After a 5 hour delay we arrived at 4am Turkish time to be welcomed by the caretaker Hussan who helped carry our cases from our tired hands to our well equipped, clean and spacious apartment. We took to our beds and woke up to bright sunshine! the start of our holiday, and the sunshine continued for the duration of our stay. We soon began to feel comfortable as we began to explore the apartment surroundings with its beautiful, clean swimming pool along with a pool table and tabble tennis table that the kids loved and played on everyday. We virtually had the pool to ourselves as many of the apartments were un-occupied at the time so soon it became our home. Hussan was available everyday and was very helpful in more ways than one. Our younger son left his blackberry phone, half asleep, in the minibus that collected us from the airport (all arranged by Russell, the owner) and Hussan helped us to retrieve it with the help of the guy who manages the property. He also had 2 more keys cut for us as we had 2 teenagers who liked to stay up late!! We were situated in a place that was assessible to Hisaronu and Olu Deniz by the dolmus bus, that cost less than a pound each to travel, and the taxi services were good value too. There are plenty of local restaurants and many more in Hisaronu, which you could walk to in 15 mins. We often went to the lagoon in Olu Deniz by taking a free bus to the private beaches of Green Park, which sit alongside St. Nicholas beach and Billy's beach bars. You can pay 5 lira for adults and half price for kids to go onto the public lagoon at Olu Deniz off the main beach. We went on the 12 island boat trip as we had already been on the 6 island one last year, and these are a must costing around £6 -10 each for adults and discounts for children for a whole day including lunch of fish or chicken. We also went on the jeep safari (much fun!) and did the quad biking with the older children, all very good value! Russell the owner had left a whole heep of information in the apartment for us to read about the local areas and things to do which was of great help and very detailed! He was very pleasant and a great communicator.
Overall we had a great holiday and love Turkey and would definately come back. Infact, we are in two years time to get married on the lagoon! can't wait.
“Perfect holiday, beautiful place and fantastic villa” We were there for nine days with another family, the villa was extremely comfortable well equipped and had a warm relaxing feel to it.
Kakan is a very atmospheric place with windy streets, lovely boutiques, market stalls and a great variety of restaurants. We hired a boat here for the day 'captain Lucky' and had the most amazing time.
The local beach club at Kalamar does a fantastic homemade ice lemonade and you can easily spend days there relaxing, swimming and a great diving school too, the kids loved it.
We did hire a car so as to visit some near by places, definitely try the fresh trout farms and get up really early ( avoid the crowds) to go to Seklikent Gorge, so beautifull.
A thoroughly great holiday x
“The villa is just everything a family could wish for” We were a family of 12 and we had the time of our life in this wonderful villa. The house is magnificent and it had large bedrooms, nice kitchen, game room and living room and the swimming pool was very good. In fact it was better than we had hoped for. Mr. Halil assisted us in every way and our neighbour took care of cleaning the swimming pool. The villa is near Fethiye which is a nice town with good restaurants, nice hamam, and a lovely harbour. It is just nice. And then you are not far from nice places like the beautiful town of Kalkan, Saklikent, Oludeniz the famous beach and the ruin of Tlos. And then it is magnificent to sail around the stunning coastline and swim in secluded bays.
“Best holiday I have been so far!” This was our first visit to Turkey and first time renting a private villa with swimming pool and massive beautiful garden. We had such a good time. My boys loved the pool and the garden, they enjoyed taking lemon and oranges from the trees in the garden. It was a unique experience, it will stay with us for a long time.
Debbie and Maria were very useful and very professional. We didn't have lot of requests but their response is instant.
I would strongly recommend Villa Zakkum if you want a peaceful place, no city life, surrounded by mountains. The villa itself is very clean, with aircon on each room. Kitchen is great, it has everything you need. There is wireless internet which was very useful for us to use in the evening. TV is connected to a local receiver which has hundreds of programs in Turkish and English.
Dalyan town is a nice small town, very peaceful town with friendly people. You can go to the beach by boat or drive there.
Great holiday for a family!
“Spot on "Absolutely fantastic"” I stayed at Gold Orka 10 end of May beginning of June with my two sisters and our young families.
The whole experience of this holiday was fantastic, aided even further by the assistance of Craig, pre the holiday, with the arranging of the transfers from the airport and the extra beds and cot we required for our stay.
The Villa is large, immaculately clean with all the mod cons required for a good villa holiday. The open plan layout of the villa is great and lends itself very well to the family holiday, the very spacious pool area is brilliant with a good size adult pool and the little pool is a great idea for the younger children to enjoy the water safely.
The villas location is perfectly situated in a lovely road with great views of the surrounding mountains and it is only a short 5 minute walk to the nearest restaurants and shops. A short bus or taxi ride and you can be in one of the several surrounding towns.
We ate out on several occasions and the food was great everywhere we went, with all the restaurants catering for the kids and the more fussy eaters within our group.
The Orka hotel is lovely, the staff are polite, helpful and good with the kids.
I would recommend this villa to couples and families without hesitation, as we enjoyed our stay immensely and I really can’t find fault at all. I know we will be returning in the very near future 10/10.
“Superb Villa In a wonderful location, wow.” We had a fantastic stay at villa Taurus , seclcuded up in the beautiful taurus mountains
which everyone who stays here must take a drive through the scenary is truly breathtaking, The pool and area around the villa is one of the best i have personally seen in many years of renting villas, and the location is great, away from the hustle and bustle , but only a 15 minute drive away from excellent restaurants and shopping.
Two fantastic house keepers on hand Glen and Heather were brilliant ,
Thanks Ron and Charlotte for a wonderful holliday.
“Fantastic villa & pool, very helpful staff always on hand.” We had a perfect week, 2 families in 2 villas. Emre's staff were always available to take us into the town or shopping and we're unfailingly helpful. The villas were lovely, but the pool was perfect especially for the kids. We completely recommend it for families with children.
“Top class accomodation for affordable price” Villa Sophia is an excellent villa for your trip to Marmaris. It is well located in reasonable proximity to the beach and restaurants, spacious hall way, rooms and lounge, stunning back yard with good swimming and generally just an awesome venue.
“we are going back” From getting off the plane johns transfer service started the holiday with brilliant pick up and drop off ,took us 40 mins from dalaman ,
the apartment is lovely and the complex very friendly .
it was our first time in turkey and what a pleasant suprise,the pools are on your doorstep and the bar hut is just past the pools which you must have a drink and a snack there the bar man his name is yildiray who will crack you up his favourite words are bloody hellllll and cheaky giiiiiit so funny makes you welcome,resturaunts and bars and saintburys yes not sainsburys is 5 min walk ,john who owns this apartment is more than helpfull when booking with him,dont fully book this place leave us room for next year, dont worry just book it ,you will find the site which is called grena apartment
“Wonderful!” My daughter and I recently returned from a 3 week stay at the Flamingo complex and we highly recommend it.We had a most enjoyable holiday. On arrival at our appartment, our first impressions were that it was spotlessly clean, very roomy with wonderful views from our terrace. There is a very good bus service just outside the complex which takes you to all parts of Bodrum. The beach is within walking distance or you can take a shuttle bus which is free. A large supermarket is located near the complex. We will defintely be coming back.
“Our Best holiday EVER..” From the moment we arrived,we felt so relaxed,what a beautiful location.The villa lived up to our expectations and catered very well for our party.It was difficult to drag ourselves away from the lovely pool,but when we did we found friendly resturants,bars and shops on our doorstep.Having the Orka Hotel across the road was an added bonus.The cleaning,maintainance and transfers they provided were first class along with the great evening entertainment, that we all enjoyed.The trips we went on were good value and we all loved the 6 island boat trip and the jeep safari.The beach is as pretty as in the holiday brochures and so easy to get to as the dolmus stopped just at the bottom of the drive,.We were spoilt for choice for places to eat.The local resturants provided some great entertainment and we never had a bad meal anywhere.Several times we made use of the bbq at the villa and watched the beautiful sunset from the balcony.Missing it already....cant wait to go back.
“I would definitely recommend B1 Nicholas Gate” I would definitely recommend B1 Nicholas Gate to friends and family and consider booking this property again. We stayed here end of October/beginning of November 2013. Although this was the last week of the season the locals were very friendly and willing to please.
B1 Nicholas Gate is a lovely clean, well equipped apartment overlooking the shared pool. Rajinder, the owner, made the booking process easy and also arranged transfers at silly o'clock in the morning and recommended Hamish McTurk for our excursions which we took full advantage off and went on four of these during our stay, including mud bath, turkish bath, Fetiye market, boat trip and horseriding which were all thoroughly enjoyable and we were picked up and dropped back to the accommodation. We found the excursions to be well worth the money and the apartment price was very reasonable. The main restaurants, bars and shops are only a five minute walk away and we found them to be friendly and the food choices were great and to a high standard. It would have obviously been more lively during peak season but still a great atmosphere. It definitely made our first trip to Hisaronu (and Turkey!) thoroughly enjoyable and memorable.
“Lovely villa in fantastic setting” We have just returned from a great week in this beautiful villa. The accommodation is lovely; spacious, airy and beautifully kept. The setting is fantastic; walking into the villa, the first thing you see, through 'room-wide' sliding glass doors, is the view of the open sea, framed by mountains. In the evening it is in perfect position to watch the sun set! There are multiple, comfortable seating areas from which to admire the view; the garden and pool were immaculately kept by Mehmet, the gardener, who called each day and also dropped fresh bread off, if required, each morning.
We hired a car, which we would recommend as we were able to really explore the area and there was lots to do; as well as relaxing by the pool, we visited Roman ruins, went gorge-walking, drove up to see the fantastic views of the coast from the mountains and spent one day on a boat visiting different coves and The Sunken City of Kekova. Talking to others, they spoke very highly of the local bus service from the Peninsula area to Kas centre (leaving to Kas every 15 mins and returning every half an hour) and we passed many buses travelling between Kas and the various spots that we visitied, so getting about without a car also looked quite easy.
Cunayt, who manages the villa for Jane and Allan, was very helpful; he speaks very good English (his wife is from Cardiff!) and recommended restaurants / made suggestions of places we might like to see. He arranged the boat trip for us and also the transfer from the airport (much chaper than anticipated) and hire car (discounted because transfer booking).
This was our first trip to Turkey; we loved Kas and thought that we were very lucky to have 'found' Sundown villa on our first visit - it would be very difficult to beat it for location, position, comfort and accommodation. We would visit again without hesitation!
“Perfect villa in idyllic location” Villa Vista was a perfect location for our group of six couples. After a week touring Turkey we were delighted to spend a relaxing week at the villa. On arrival we were greeted by the staff and made to feel very welcome. The villa exceeded our expectations as it was even more luxurious than it appeared on the website. The villa is nestled in the hills above the charming village of Gocek and has spectacular views of the sea. Every morning and evening we had beautifully prepared meals out on the terrace where we could enjoy the balmy evening breezes. To our surprise our rooms were serviced every day by the wonderfully attentive staff who even did our laundry for us. We have rented villas in France and Italy before but have never had such good service as at Villa Vista. During the months prior to our arrival my numerous emails were answered promptly by Emre who provided advice and support to ensure that our stay would run smoothly. He even arranged for our hire car to be delivered directly to the villa. We all agreed that our stay at Villa Vista was perfect in all respects.
“A great location to relax and chill!” This villa was in a brilliant location, just in reach of the local village. Also not too far from the beaches and Fethiye city where there are countless of things to do.
The swimming pool had fantastic wide open views and it was very spacious and completely spotless! It was a fantastic spot and I would recommend it to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings.
“Beautiful, well-equipped and comfortable villa in stunning surroundings” I cannot recommend Villa Andalucia highly enough. The villa has everything you could want, including a fully equipped kitchen and comfortable beds. The villa is surrounded by stunning scenery and has plenty of outside space to enjoy the sun. In addition, the villa's location offers the best of both worlds - peace and quiet but close enough to Fethiye and the coast so you can also get out and about.
Keith and Lorraine are fantastic hosts and really did everything they could to make our stay one we will never forget, including letting our daughter and son-in-law hold their wedding at the villa.
If you’ve a passion for beautiful beach resorts, lush landscapes and captivating ancient ruins, then look no further than Turkey. It's one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world and for very good reason...
East Meets West
A country which combines the cultures of both East and West, Turkey’s very landscape has been sculpted by Greeks, Romans, Byzantine Emperors and the Ottomans over the last several millennia. Here, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean influences blend authentically to form an exciting, vibrant and cosmopolitan country, ideal for travellers with an adventurous streak.
There’s so much to see, do and experience in Turkey, your itinerary will be packed. Walk the historic streets of Istanbul, marvel at the ruins of Ephesus where you’ll find the Temple of Artemis (one of the wonders of the ancient world) or bathe in the crystal blue waters of Antalya, Bodrum and Marmaris.
A Warm Welcome
You can expect plenty of warmth from the weather and the locals, too. Turkey’s people are renowned for being some of the friendliest in Europe, so don’t be surprised if you make friends with a waiter or shop attendant during your travels.

Mountain View Villa Number 12
Great villa in a great location and setting.

Would 100% recommend. …
Golden Height Villa 14 Harmony
Tranquil location with excellent views.
We stayed in this villa in September 2017, and again in May 2018, and I have to say we were not disappointed on our return, it is one of the best villas we have stayed in within this area. ( we have been coming to the area for 20+ years)
The views are to die for, and having your own private pool is always a bonus.
The facilities within the villa are excellent, with every bedroom having ensuite facilites, The kitchen is well equipped should you decide to dine in.
The villa also offers sky TV and internet access, something very few villas have on offer.
I was amazed to see not one but two safes installed, ( many villas do not have this facility) so felt there was adequate protection for ones personal possessions.
I was also impressed at the added security features this villa had to offer, with an alarm system, and wooden battens in all recesses of the patio doors, for that added peace of mind.
Yes we have booked again and can not wait to return later this year. …
Lovely central Hisarönü holiday apartment with 2 shared pools.
I have been coming to the Hisarönü area for 8 years now, and have stayed in various apartments as a preference to hotels. This apartment is a good size, with a nice balcony area, and makes you feel like a home from home, and great shared pool area. Location wise it’s short walk right in to central Hisarönü but away from the main strip so that you have the peace and tranquility when you want a relaxing day. Will definitely chose to stay here again. …
Turquoise Coast of Turkey in Dalyan,for a relaxing holiday, private Villa Amazon
A real gem, faultless
Not only is the location of villa Amazon perfect, just 200 yards from nearest shops/restuarants and only 10min walk to resort centre but villa was spotlessly clean with all the utilities you will need with a private pool the size of some shared pools we have seen. The owner and the staff where very courteous to our needs. We will certainly be revisiting Villa Amazon again …
2 Bedroom Duplex Apartment
I’ve just come home for a chilled girls holiday at this wonderful villa. It was clean and spacious and had lots of balcony space with outside seating. The villa comes with its own sunbeds and overlooks the shared pool area. The pool gets the sun all day and is really relaxing. There is also a taxi button just outside the villa that calls a taxi for you that takes you the 5 minutes into Calis Beach. There are lots of nice restaurants and bars as well as activities such as boat trips. The owner was also really helpful and quick to respond. There was also a helpful to do pack left in the villa too. Would definitely book to stay here again! Thanks …
Best Holiday location in Bodrum-Gumusluk - Duplex villa with sea view
This villa has breath taking views and is so well kept. It’s in the best location of the compound ; 5 minuets walk from the pool and the service bus for the beach , which is only a 5 minuete ride. The location is also very quite which was definitely a plus for us. The villa itself is very well kept and clean, complete with dishwasher, which was great!!
We enjoyed our stay here so much as a whole family and will definitely book this villa again! …
