We have just returned from a weeks stay in Kalkan, in the beautiful Villa Sunshine. I don't write a lot of reviews but we loved our stay so much I felt I should give our thoughts for anyone planning to stay there in the future. I did a lot of research before booking Villa Sunshine as we prefer not to hire a car on holiday and we wanted to stay somewhere that would be a short walk into town. It took us around 10 mins to walk into town ( I did actually time it!!) but as it was quite hilly we tended to get a taxi back to the villa which only cost the equivalent of £2-3 per time which is very chea...more
We have just enjoyed a wonderful family holiday - 10 of us - at the beautiful High House, Kalamar Bay, Kalkan. The property is stunning and finished to a high quality with fabulous views over the bay. A ten minute taxi ride from the town makes it accessible to all the amenities with some lovely little cafe/bars within walking distance. Superb!
Yesil Kelebek is a very comfortable and well equipped Villa. It has spectacular views of the bay. The caretakers are very helpful and service the pool and grounds on a daily basis. We have stayed in Kalkan on 7 other occasions and this is the nicest villa we have rented . A special villa in a special place .
We had 10 days in Villa Manor and it was utterly wonderful. Being so close to the old town I wasn’t expecting any kind of garden - but we were greeted by three terraces leading down to the house which are beautifully maintained featuring pomegranate trees, hibiscus and frangipani amongst others. The villa itself is stunning. Gorgeous pool and open views to the sea and the rooftops of the town. How wonderful lie in the pool watching the sun go down whilst listening to the call to prayer. We loved the kosk seating area which was a lovely place to gather the family for pre dinner drinks. Every ro...more
Another fantastic time in Kalkan. Everything ran smoothly and we love this apartment. Clean, well looked after, good air con, easy reach of town and water sports, pool is fantastic for both us and our three kids. Zal in resort provided good up to date information on our first morning even though we have been before. Transfers organised by Olive Tree and the Gulet cruises were smooth and exceptional as I have come to expect from them.
We travelled from Fethiye to Kalkan for a week's stay in Ada Manzara. Olive Tree Travel had organised pick up for us which arrived in perfect time to take us to Kalkan. From the moment we arrived, our stay was beautiful - Roger welcomed us and the apartment was lovely - spotlessly clean, cool and with lovely views. There was ample space, a really well appointed kitchen and spacious wet rooms. Without a doubt the highlight is the huge roof terrace which we virtually lived on. We particularly liked the lovely hammered-metal candle lanterns which made the evenings on the terrace just lovely. ...more
We loved our stay in villa Poyraz - great showers and comfy beds. Kitchen very well equipped. Lovely beach towels
Sodor, a duplex apartment, lived up to expectations and so much more. Having a private pool and being on two floors, it felt like a villa and so great value for money. It was very clean and modern with a few Turkish touches which added to its charm. It's in a great location, just a few minutes walk from a nearby eatery and mini supermarket and just 5-10 minute walk into the town. The pool area was very pleasing with comfortable loungers, bean bags and dining area for eating al fresco! The pool was an ideal size to keep my children entertained. The bedrooms on the lower floor were very coo...more
This was our second stay at Aqua, for the month of October this time. That probably tells you all you need to know about our opinion of the property. It's in a great location, with wonderful views and in easy reach of the old town with all it's bars and restaurants. We're old hands in Kalkan, but we've found Aqua hard to beat. Superbly equipped, with some lovely small touches like the welcome packs. We have only one gripe (and it's a small one), on which others (judging from the guest book) wouldn't agree with us. Every morning and evening, Tekin, the property guy, will be on site to move sun...more
Villa Gozcu is fabulous. 14 of us stayed in the villa with extended family members but each room has it's own private spaces to ensure you never feel on top of each other. All the rooms are lovely with ensuite facilities, spacious wardrobes and storage. The kitchen is so well equipped with every kitchen aid you could think of, even a salad spinner! There is a huge table outside to ensure sufficient seating for everyone to eat together and the games room including gym equipment was well used by the kids. The quickest route into Kalkan is via a rough track and the surrounding area is very h...more
The moment we opened the gate into The View we were stunned by the view. The villa is amazing and cannot fault at all. The owner has thought of absolutely everything to make your stay comfortable. Little things like dishwasher and washing powder. The bedrooms are stunning. Two amazing ones on the top floor then three still fantastic bedrooms on the lower floor. Whichever bedroom you end up with, you would not be disappointed. All have those amazing sea views. We were a group of ten adults and we found the space perfect for all our needs. A short flat walk into town where you are spoilt for cho...more
A fantastic house in the heart of Kalkan. The property is well placed for all the amenities of the town and is so close to the town beach. Everything is provided and everything is of the highest quality. The jacuzzi on the roof is the icing on the cake ! Special mention must be made of the customer care in Kalkan...the staff are only a Whats App away and are so helpful. We plan to return Thank you Olive Tree
This villa has a truly magical position and view, its epic and we were amazed at the location. Its on a very very very steep road however which was a bit hair raising in the hire car! The villa is great, really well equipped and feels like a home, great quality of kit in the kitchen - I love to cook and also great quality rooms. Omer who looks after the house and comes daily to check the pool was also great and really helped make our second week perfect. My only feedback points on the villa are that some things are a bit tired. The outside furniture and umbrellas are all a bit old and tat...more
Excellent villa situated close enough to the harbour to walk into town. Outdoor pool and seating very good indeed with enough shade and sun beds for all the family.
The villa was as beautiful as it looks in the photos. The Owner Erhan greeted us on arrival at 2am and gave us an explanation of the facilities. There was a substantial welcome package on our arrival. He ensured we had the correct number of sun beds and dining chairs for the number of guests by the time we awoke the next morning. He was available and very responsive throughout our stay and nothing was too much trouble. The villa was luxurious and spacious for a party of 11. We had daily pool cleaning before we woke and weekly clean of the villa. We walked into Kalkan a number of times whic...more
Kalkan is exceptionally beautiful and friendly and the Mahmut Salvarli Suites are absolutely fantastic. Mustafa and his team were the best hosts and really could not do enough for us. They were so kind and helpful and the apartments, have everything you would need.
The service received from Olive Tree was nothing short of excellent. The quality of the Villa was really good and it's location with that view is simply stunning. Highly recommended!
Eski Koy Evi is two renovated houses in the heart of Kalkan's Old Town, five minutes' walk to the beach, with bars, restaurants and shops even closer. There are two 'wings' either side of a central atrium, with separate staircases to bedrooms/bathrooms which converge at atrium roof level to reach the two roof terraces. The villa is beautifully furnished, with double-glazing and air conditioning. There is some noise from surrounding buildings as you would expect in narrow streets with lots of locals and tourists, but we found it was fine keeping some windows open. The living / dining / kitchen ...more
High standard of bill, very well maintained, very clean, lovely view. Zal was very helpful and was always at the end of the phone to help when asked x
We loved the apartment and the area. We would have re:booked but was it already booked up for the time would have liked. We have booked another apartments for next year just a little further up the hill. The managing agent was first rate, nothing was too much trouble and any request was dealt with immediately. The girls, and the pool man that serviced the accommodation were all brilliant and a great team. As our arrival was very late in the evening/early morning it made such a difference to have had the shopping done and delivered. Really great holiday and service. Thank you.
Amazing property, accurately described on The Olive Tree website. We had the most fabulous family holiday!
really liked this apartment but expensive compared with the rest of Kalkan, extremely well appointed.
We have just returned from the most amazing week staying at villa zeugma, we went as a family of seven and couldn’t have been more pleased with everything from the view to the location, just everything about this villa is fab. I was slight apprehensive on arrival as photographs can be deceiving but in this case the photos in the website does not do it justice. We will return.
Zenato is a fantastic place to stay. First, and so important in Kalkan, is the location. Just five minutes (with no hills) from the centre of Kalkan, Zenato has the very best location anywhere in Kalkan. And the apartment itself is fantastic - real luxury. Everything about is first class and can't be faulted. Amazing views, really large rooms and a great terrace with your own pool. Yes, it's technically an apartment, but it feels like a villa. If you stay here, you'll have a fantastic time.
Excellent and wonderful stay at Ocean Pearl Villa. Contact with all hosts was second to none, and both the villa and resort were exceptional!
Really loved the Isle Apartment and the location was just right. Last year we stayed a little bit further out of town and the walk was further. Air conditioning was very effective and the cleanliness of the property was excellent. Decor was just right and the bathrooms were stylish and modern. We didn't eat in very much but one or two bowls would have been handy to store food in. We were a bit short of pegs for the dryer but we could easily have asked but forgot. A large branch fell off the tree in our courtyard and it was removed really quickly. Our rep Laura was really good -we had a v...more
We loved the views from the villa, it was in a lovely location and very comfortable. The kitchen could be a bit better equipped for cooking, lacking a little in utensils.
We've just returned from a fantastic one-week stay at Bergamot Evi. The villa is lovely - it was spotlessly clean, incredibly well equipped and very comfortable. We've stayed in Kalkan before and I love the villa location too - it's an easy walk to supermarkets and The Old Town but feels very peaceful and 'authentic'. Inside, the villa is tastefully decorated and the outside area with swimming pool is spacious and very comfortable....views to the sea, lots of seating and good quality parasols providing enough shade. The service from Olive Tree Travel was as excellent as ever - we've booked...more
The owner of the villa was incredibly accommodating, especially given the uncertainty around travel at the moment. Communication from booking onwards has been quick, easy and incredibly courteous. Instructions for accessing the villa were clear and straightforward and we experienced no problems at all. The welcome pack (including fresh bread, milk, jam etc.) was a lovely touch and the information pack provided invaluable hints and tips that made our stay effortless, such as supermarket delivery and numbers of local taxis. The villa itself was a 5 minute taxi rider from the centre of to...more
We had the good fortune to stay for a month in villa Alisia. The Villa is spacious, well equipped and exquisitely furnished with views of the bay and harbour to die for
This was our first visit to kalkan and the first time booking through olive tree travel . I found my communication with them was very efficient. Everything was explained precisely, nothing was left out . The villa was as described on their website and the views were amazing .As it was up high it was also very peaceful which was lovely . The villa was well equipped with nice decor and comfortable beds . The pool and grounds were immaculately kept . The maintenance chap Ramazan was a star who gave us tips on where to visit in our car . He quietly came every day to clean the pool and surroundi...more
Villa Bianca is perfectly located in Kalkan's old town, two minutes from the harbour and a few steps more to the pebbly beach. Bars, restaurants and shops are all close by. The shady courtyard garden with plunge pool is lovely, though at the end of October we could have done with less shade and more sun! There is a large terrace off the first floor double bedroom which is sunny and pleasant, and a long narrow roof terrace which leads to the second double (it took us a while to work out that was the only way in!). Both double bedrooms are a good size, with lots of storage and good showers. The ...more
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Asfiya. I have stayed in these apartments many times & will continue to do so Very clean & great location very well looked after
A beautiful property with gorgeous views. We were a large family group staying in Villa Vanilla and Villa Beloulou (next door). Both villas were well equipped with everything we need. Any issues were dealt with promptly by the management company. We all had an amazing time :-)
This was not my first time in Kalkan, not the last for sure. The place was what I expected from the web site, although the information was not so detailed. When I applied for the reservation all the dialogue and info was satisfactory. Everything was fine at the house, as expected. The only subject that I can raise we have not met Muhammet bey at all, and because of that no introduction was made about the house. I need to call him for the wifi password. The Barbecue needs some repair. :)
The villa was very well presented and we had an excellent stay. The views of Kalkan bay are excellent from all the rooms. Kalkan is very hilly so bear that in mind......but taxis are very cheap if you need them to get around.
A great apartment within an easy flat walk in to town. The apartment is well equipped and the upstairs terrace lovely and spacious. The downstairs balcony is in the shade so a good contrast to upstairs. Pool area is fairly spacious. We stayed at the end of May and had the pool to ourselves much of the time. Whislt a 2 bed apartment, I would recommend for 1 couple or a family rather than 2 couples. The only downside is that there are a lot of stairs to access the front door which may be an issue for some and the stairs to the bedroom were steep, not to be dine in a hurry. All in all I would ...more
Another fantastic late summer week in Kalkan. Lovely villa, convenient location for our group, all contributed to a great holiday. Well looked after by Olive Tree Travel before and during our stay.
Sea Esta Su was a joy to stay in. Tastefully decorated with everything we needed and more. Just a short walk into town. Nicer on the way down than on the way back up! ;) That said, the hill is very gentle. Sunny and shaded areas around the pool. Not a very scenic view from the outside area but for me it was well worth sacrificing a view for such a lovely apartment.
The Samira villa 1 is a beautiful spacious villa finished to high specification. It offers great privacy and views over Kalkan. It is a 10 minute walk into town so great location. Ozan the owner was very friendly and always available if required and Zal from olive tree visited on the first day to ensure all was ok. Would highly recommend Villa 1 Samira and will define be returning
If you are thinking about booking this property just do it, in a great location 10 mins walk into Kalkan town but with excellent restaurants especially Kaptan and a mini market within 5 mins walk for fresh bread each morning at the cost of 1 Turkish Lira! The property is of a very high standard and has everything you could wish for. The property is exactly as the images on the website. Debbie at Olive Tree booked our taxi transfers which were prompt and reliable. The property was cleaned on Wednesdays and Saturday including a change of bed linen and towels. We had a fabulous holiday spent lyin...more
The property is in a very good location and is extremely well equipped. Very clean and well maintained.
I've stayed in many properties in Kalkan over the last 12 years or so and have to say that this is my favourite so far. To start with the location is excellent. Located on the Lykia estate it is just a few minutes (fairly level) walk from the town, yet it feels a world away. The area feels almost like you are in the countryside. The road to and from the villa past the Dionysia Hotel is leafy, green and quiet. The villa itself is exceptional. There is a small shaded garden to the front where the children can visit the tortoises, plus a shaded terrace. A path around the side leads to the pool, d...more
Great villa with excellent facilities and a wonderful view overlooking the harbour. Villa has everything you need and is very well kept. Approximate 10-15 minutes walk into the Old Town, but get a taxi back as it’s uphill all the way, only costs about £3. Would recommend this villa.
EXCELLENT AND COMFORTABLE VILLA IN A GREAT LOCATION. JUST AN EASY 10 MINS STROLL TO THE OLD TOWN AND ONLY A 5 MIN STROLL TO THE NEAREST SUPERMARKET. VERY CLEAN AND COMFORTABLE, GOOD POOL SIZE. CRISP LINEN AND TOWELS PROVIDED, GOOD SIZED ROOMS WITH MORE THAN ADEQUATE A/C IN EACH ROOM. WOULD NOT HESITATE TO RECOMMEND AND WOULD DEFINITELY STAY HERE AGAIN. STEVE P AND FAMILY
Turtle bay villla is excellently situated on a penninsula with great views over the sea where there were amazing sunsets just like on the photographs. With the infinity pool it was stunning. The house was spacious, clean and modern and easy for 6 adults to have plenty space. Great bedrooms with balcony with views. Good outdoor space and sunbeds in sun and seating in shade. It was mostly private but there was some visibility into the outside space from the road, but this was not too noticeable. Regular buses to the town of Kas were easy to catch. Local hotels were easy to eat at. Olive tree tra...more
Great apartment in a very convenient location to Kalkan's old town (the main area of shops and restaurants). Probably one of the small number of apartments/villa's where you don't need a taxi back up the hills! Apartment itself was very nice, very clean and modern. Pool was a good size and received sun from the early morning until about 5pm (August - may change with season). We arrived to a fresh hamper of biscuits, bread, jam, milk, orange juice which was a nice touch. All in all, great place to stay
We really enjoyed our visit to Kalkan for the first time and was lucky enough to have booked the Luna Apartment, this is a fairly new block of 4 apartments with Luna being on the top floor, everything is quality, every room has amazing views and its literally a 5-7 minute walk to the town which is full of fantastic restaurants. We sat on the roof terrace for many hours during the 8 day visit and should have definitely booked for longer, we spoke to many people while we were there and most people have been going there for many years, we understand why and will definitely return.
Great accommodation, amazing location and views. Only critique would be in finding the address, please change the address to the right location as it wasn’t hard to find with Some directions with thanks to the local rep who helped us. Overall great experience thank you.
Great position and very comfortable. Fantastic floor to ceiling views of the bay. Only one small issue - no sun on patio or pool till mid afternoon - not ideal for sun worshipers ☀️
We had a lovely week in Dalkiran There was a big party of us 8 and we had loads of room Every room had en-suite and the bedrooms were spacious with balconies The outside area was fabulous with a coffee table and a dining table and a BBQ so plenty of room for eating outside and entertaining The main selling point is the Villas location only a short walk to the shops bars and restaurants I would recommend this Villa and definitely would go back
As this was our first holiday in Kalkan, Debbie Warwick helped us choose the perfect location and apartment to suit all of our needs. Debbie’s advice, knowledge and patients was second to none. She is the perfect example of exceptional customer service. Azure Heights apartment is wonderful and has everything , from the fully fitted kitchen to the most amazing views. It was so much better than we could have anticipated. It was beautifully furnished inside and out and fully equipped. We booked to stay in the apartment for a week in August and it was hot. We didn’t seem to be affected by th...more
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Nergis, property was exactly as shown in the pictures. The roof top terrace was fantastic, with some excellent views, where you could unwind with a drink. The villa was very spacious and very clean, and lacked nothing. The bedrooms were very spacious and the villa was about a 15 minute leak surely walk down into the harbour, taxis are very cheap to return late at night, but there are shops, restaurants and bars around the villa if you don’t want to venture far. It was very easy to communicate with the villa owner for anything, and the cake and small items t...more
Great villa and location. Felt ottoman room let’s it down though. I would hope the hand soaps are full on arrival which they were not. Great pool. Lovely living space. Would come again.
This is our second stay and certainly not the last. Excellent location, quieter area than central Kalkan but plenty of walkable restaurants and small local shops. With great views of the the coast and mountains. A large villa with exceptional outside space. Pool area is fantastic. Since our last stay they have updated the lounge and indoor dining and a new lovely kitchen. My only criticism is that the beds are very uncomfortable and the pillows are horrific. So please let this be the next thing on your to do list at the Villa. We Love Love Love this Villa.
Basic but functional apartment (we had everything we needed) Spotlessly clean Fab location (max 10 minutes walk to the furthest point on the harbour) and everything (shops, bars, banks) on your doorstep —however this does mean you are completely surrounded by the local businesses (Bakery, greengrocers, SOK supermarket) air con units which are pretty noisy, especially when the generator kicks in! Also, very overlooked and it is rather awkward being watched by the greengrocers staff who are out on their cigarette break whilst you are in your bikini by the pool! Being so far down the hill al...more
A well kept villa with a great elevated view of Kalkan Bay, and several shaded areas/out door dining, which make the space very useable. The local agent Halis is extremely helpful and was extremely quick to sort out a minor issue we had with the aircon.
We enjoyed our stay at elmas. Some minor niggles such as fridge freezer breaking down which could not be fixed for 2 days which did impact upon our holiday. We had to request a mid-stay clean for our 10 night stay which was finally done after 8 days. Otherwise this is an excellent apartment and takes about 10 minutes to walk into town but you do need to get a taxi back although these are very cheap. Maintained to a high standard and pool cleaned daily. Would recommend staying here.
Lovely villa, great location. Slightly lacking in outside space which could be rectified by making the awning retractable and decking the waste ground in front of pool. Beds not the comfiest and showers hopeless due low water pressure, which could be resolved with new and smaller heads. Spotlessly clean and plenty of kitchen utensils. Needs hooks or shelves in bedrooms and bathrooms. Lovely villa on the whole.
Watching the sun go down early evening is something not to be missed. The apartment is contemporary with whites and creams, very lovely. Easy walk into town and would 100% recommend.
Ketchy Villa lived all up to the pictures on the website, plenty of room, all the correct amenities, would recommend to anyone, especially olive tree travel as a booking agent..
Convenient location in a quiet residential area. A modern apartment which we felt could benefit from a few improvements to improve the self catering experience. We felt the apartment would benefit from a water cooler and the addition of some basic plastic kitchen equipment like small mixing bowls, measuring jug, oven gloves.
It's a great place to be in Kalkan, easy walking distance to Kalamar Bay for a swim, the diving centre and some very good restaurants. The apartment itself is very comfortable. We're not big fans of the bathrooms; all wet rooms so we spent more time cleaning the floor than having a shower but it's no big problem. It would definitely benefit from having a dining table on the master bedroom patio (with some lights), so one can enjoy the magnificent view.
My wife and I stayed for two weeks in July 2020 It is ideally situated near the town centre with an easy walk Clean tidy and comfortable good size pool Space maybe an issue if there was a family of 6 staying
Although we are frequent visitors to Kalkan, this was our first visit to Kisla and to Villa Palmiye. Kisla is quieter than other areas of Kalkan and has the benefit of a couple of small convenience stores and restaurants as well as easy access to a couple of beach clubs. The sunsets are amazing and it's very easy to get into town - we didn't attempt the very steep hills as it was only 25 Turkish lira to get a cab for the 5 minute ride into town. The villa itself is lovely, very spacious and the outside area is particularly good with the added bonus of a table tennis table. There are plenty of ...more
Lovely villa, met all expectations. Would recommend. Host very helpful, cleaners and maintenance excellent.
The Villa location was good a little way from town but nice walk. The villa was clean tidy but certain things could do with some up dating. We had a couple of problems but all we sorted very quickly. Excellent villa for large party.
I've already submitted a review when contacted by OliveTreeTravel and I don't want to have to do another
