About Janice Mortimer

We have been very happily married for 30 years and met when we were 14 and 16. We have 2 children, who are now grown up, a girl 30 and a boy 24 both have left home now and making their own lives. Our daughter gave us our first grandchild in November 2015 a little girl. Andrew is a self employed engineer and Janice is a Fleet Manager & Logistics Analyst for a paint manufacturer. We never fancied Turkey as a holiday destination, but circumstances took us to Olu Deniz in June 2005. We fell in love with the area & the people and we now go at least twice a year and love every minute of it. We have made good Turkish friends and the novelty has never worn off, we enjoy it just as much now as ever.

Janice Mortimer purchased this villa in 2005

Why Janice Mortimer chose Lycian & Turquoise Coast

Calis Beach is a young and growing resort. It's not yet reached the frantic hustle and bustle of the larger more popular resorts, yet there is plenty to do and lots of bars and restaurants to choose from.

The people are fantastic. Tourism is their life blood and they make sure everyone wants to come back again by making everyone so welcome. We have never been anywhere else where the people have been so genuine.

We have been told that some of the larger resorts suffer from traders that hassle you, but in Calis this is not the case.

Calis is so laid back you never want to go home.

Although the area is surrounded by mountains the resort is very flat and therefore lends itself to easy walking or cycling.

What makes this villa unique

Our property's detached in plenty of space, so you don't have to worry about disturbing others or them disturbing you. The large pool has plenty of available loungers even in July and August and there is always a gentle breeze to keep you cool while you sunbathe. The site is only a 7 minute walk from the beach, bars and restaurants, which is near enough to walk and far enough away to be peaceful. There's a bus that stops outside the complex to take you into nearby Fethiye and the market on market days. The villa is equipped with everything you could want, whether you want to stay in or go out. Ample food storage and cooking facilities along with 2 TV's Movies & an Xbox should you want a night in. We even have free Wifi.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fantastic holiday in your villa and hope to return again hopefully in the not too distant future. Your Villa is such a home from home and we did not want to leave. Also the Palm Beach complex was great and the maintenance people were so helpful and friendly. Calis beach is a lovely area with lots to do and we found the locals so welcoming. The Turkish bath and spa you recommended at the Nevada Su were well worth a visit.

Fabulous villa & many fantastic holidays here

  • 5 of 5

The property is very spacious & decorated to a very high standard. There is everything you could possibly need for a superb family holiday. I have enjoyed many family holidays here & will be returning for my next one this year. The complex the villa is situated on is about a 10 minute stroll from the beautiful beachfront, bars, shops & restaurants so it is very quiet for sleeping when you return to the villa after a lovely day/night out. I would recommend that anyone who is planning to visit Calis for their holiday this year checks this villa out. I'm sure it will tick all the boxes!! 👍🏻

The villa is clean, everything works and is very well appointed for a home from home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely two week holiday staying in Villa L late September. The villa is clean, well decorated and there are more than enough crockery, cutlery and utensils to stay in and cook. However, if you choose to eat out, it is a 10 minute stroll to Calis front where there are numerous restaurants offering good food - both English and Turkish. Or catch a dolmus to fethiye to eat and get the water taxi back!

The grounds are also well kept and the pool is clean and hardly a soul to share it with!

Our favourite was catching the dolmus to fethiye late Tuesday afternoon to go to the market, then wonder around fethiye old town to have dinner.

Wonderful holiday and I cannot fault either the villa or the services of the agent. Reluctant to leave a review in case the villa is too booked for us to rebook next year!

Owner's Response: We have to agree with our guests about the food in both Calis & Fethiye, as it is really good and it gets better and better everytime we go. We've found some wonderful restaurants and leave leaflets in the villa for guests so they can try them for themselves. Janice & Andy

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing holiday we had,the villa was beyond our expectations, fantastic facilities, complex small and friendly in a great location, all our needs were catered for. Calis is a lovely resort and we were thrilled to find a smashing restaurant that understood about gluten free eating and didn't just pretend to, Barbella went above and beyond for our youngest who has coeliac disease and helped make our first trip to Turkey a really memorable one we can't wait to return. Thank you Janice and Andrew for allowing us to use your wonderful villa and introducing us to a fantastic holiday destination. Rick, Sue and the boys.

Owner's Response: I keep updating the photos regularly, partly to show how good the villa still looks and show off the improvements we've made, but also I keep trying to get shots that do it justice, but just can't seem to get ones that show how spacious it is. It's really nice reading how much customers enjoy our place in the sun :)

Beautiful villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Modern villa with all the comforts of home, the kitchen was stunning and had everything you could possibly need. We stayed in a few nights so made full use of it. The lounge had a lovely corner sofa and flat screen TV and the hard drive with the movies on was great especially on the nights we decided to stay in. It had movies on to suit all. The wifi was an added bonus too.

The villa was clean, had plenty of towels including beach towels to use

The complex was well maintained and lovely and quiet, and only 10 mins walk to the beach and bars and restaurants.

We ventured into fetiye a few nights to the new promenade and tried out a few of the restaurants there as a lot of the Turkish eat on there, and we weren't disappointed, we tried the steaks at manchero , the fish at hilmi and lamb and steaks at boggerio all were fantastic delicious meals. My husband had chateaubriand for 2 all to himself and it only cost £23.

Would definitely stay at villa l again

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 8 days in June 2015. The owners were extremely helpful in allowing us to stay an extra night due to the late arrival of our plane and in organising access to keys and travel directions in advance. The villa itself was clean, spacious and very well equipped with air con, large fridge freezer, wireless internet and a large TV with lots of decent films on a hard drive. The shared pool was very nice and not too busy with the other residents. It's about a 10 minute walk from the villa to the local Calis beach. If you have a rental car there are many places in the surrounding area worth visiting, including Fethiye, Oludeniz, Dalyan, ancient ruins at Tlos/Xanthos/Patara etc, and the Saklikent gorge; otherwise you can book coach excursions to these from Calis beach. Overall, Villa L is an excellent property at an extremely good price and I would definitely stay here myself again if we came back to this part of Turkey - highly recommended.
