About Alex Austin

Alex and Terry Austin live in Ipswich in the UK.

Alex Austin purchased this villa in 2013

Why Alex Austin chose Kalkan

Bought in March 2013. We have been coming to Kalkan for over 12 years and love the area. Our villa is in our favorite part of Kalkan - Kisla with the most sunshine and best sunsets.

Guestbook comments from the owner

‘We have just returned from Kalkan and wanted to let you know that we had the best holiday we have ever had at your villa in Turkey. Villa Holu proved to be luxurious, spacious and comfortable accommodation in a beautiful setting. Everything has been thought of and this enabled us to switch off and just enjoy a totally relaxing holiday, lounging in and around the infinity pool. We really appreciated the serenity of the location and every day we were in awe of the view and the gorgeous sunsets. We tried most of the restaurants you recommended and found the cuisine to be of a very high standard. The friendliness of the local people was an added bonus. This holiday truly lived up to our expectations and we can't wait to return. Many thanks for providing us with a 1st class holiday’ - Williams family. Higham, Rochester.

Thank you for a wonderful holiday! The villa is superb and surpassed our expectations, and in such a beautiful setting too!!.Mr Wilson from Grimsby

Hi Alex,

Just looking through out holiday photos for the first time and wanted to say thank you. We have rented houses for the last twenty years and I can safely say your villa was absolutely the best. I will always miss the view! Hopefully one year we can go back. P Rainford Aug 2014

Lived up to our expectations

  • 5 of 5

Villa Holu was exactly like the photographs. Everything about it was stylish, comfortable, well equipped, well located, stunning views and more...

All correspondence with the owners was prompt, helpful and friendly. Our party of 8 included 4 teenagers who were thrilled with the games room and table tennis not to mention the good wi-fi connection.

We would definitely recommend this villa and would not hesitate in returning ourselves.

Thank you

Villa Holu

  • 5 of 5

Villa Holu is absolutely beautiful. The house is large, spacious, comfortable, well equipped and a joy to be in. The views are magnificent and the snooker room and table tennis a fabulous bonus for our teenage family. Our family ranged from 11 years old to 67 and all our needs were met. Alex, the owner, is wonderful and ensured our stay was perfect. We hope to go back many times in the future.

Beautifully presented

  • 4 of 5

This was a convenient spot - ideally located for the beach clubs and the sea taxi to Kalkan town for the evenings. The house is beautifully presented and spotlessly clean with lots of space and having the pool and table tennis table was great with two teenage boys. The villa itself was everything we could have wished for and the outside areas of the house were equally stunning and very well cared for. If I was to make one constructive comment I would have preferred the photos to be little more honest - the 'main' road of Kisla approaches the villa down a hill which makes part of the terrace in full view of those approaching and the houses directly in front of the villa are not shown either. I'm sure to 99/100 people neither of these matter but uninterrupted views and a feeling of away from it all are important to us and if they are for you then this isn't your villa.

Palatial Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely stunning, first class accommodation. Bit of a cliché but the photos really do not do this place justice. The views and sunset from every where in the house are breathtaking. Kalkan itself is a hidden gem, I shall return. Thank you Alex for allowing us the use of your beautiful home.

The villa is approx 200m from the sea. Kalkan Beach Club and The Mahal Beach Clubs are just 8 mins walk down from the villa. They both have a restaurant and they operate a boat service to the harbour. Kalkan has a small pleasant pebble beach. Otherwise you can hop on a dolmus (a Turkish minibus) and head for either Patara Beach approx 20 mins. 18km of sand, described as one of the most beautiful stretches of sand in all of Turkey, or Kaputas Beach a small but stunning beach, takes 10 mins.


The nearest airport is Dalaman, which takes approx 1.5 hours to Kalkan (130km). Transfers to and from the airport can be arranged by us. We use a locally company located in Kalkan.


The centre of Kalkan/Harbour takes about 3 mins by taxi. As all of Kalkan is hilly to walk it will take about 20 - 25 mins. Kalkan is in the heart of the Lycian region and there are many historical sites close by to visit ruins of Patara, Xanthos- the capital city of Lycia, Kekova - Lycia's famous Sunken City, ghost village of Kayakoy, Saklikent Gorge.

Further Details:

There are a few banks with a cash dispenser in the village as well as a Post Office. Credit cards or sterling as well as Turkish lira are widely accepted in most of the town's shops and restaurants. There are 2 large supermarkets in Kalkan, both offer a free delivery service, and 2 small supermarkets within 3 mins walk of the villa. Market day is on a Thursday. Kalkan is quietly sophisticated and postcard pretty with a multitude of excellent harbour and roof top restaurants offering all manner of culinary delights, together with a good selection of stylish and atmospheric blues and jazz bars. The village shops stay open until around midnight and are well stocked with interesting antiques, crafts, jewelers, carpets and clothing. The narrowing streets of the old town are lined with whitewashed shuttered buildings festooned with brightly coloured bougainvillea.
