Guestbook comments from the owner
Emas and Kalkan have given us a treasured start to our married life. BY chance, and the wonders of the internet, we chose this wonderful place for our honeymoon. Hamza the agent, the staff at the Aubergine and everyone else we have met have treated us royally! We ventured into the mountains - scary but worth it! To almost deserted beaches, to Kas, Olu Deniz and of course, lovely Kalkan. Had one day of rain but did not matter at all. Temperatures of about 25 degrees C and we both have a great tan! Cooler evenings but better than England of course. Pool cool, but still swam - what a luxury. Thank you Kalkan and thank you wonderful Elmas, we can't wait to come back!

Elmas Villa Kisla Kalcan
Villa Elmas is superbly situated with spectacular sea views and views across the bay to Kalcan. The villa is immaculately clean and very well provided with towels bedding dishes dish washer washing machine etc. Wet room and bathroom/shower room. All balconies and swimming pool with adequate comfortable seating at each outside space. Spoilt for choice of where to relax! Welcome pack on arrival. Tv books dvd's & information pack. Owner Phil was very informative and responded immediately to any requests. Kisla is lovely and Kalcan too with its relaxing roof top restaurants and comfortable bars. Shopping excellent. I'm a fussy devil and I was delighted with our holiday which was a recommendation.....Overall 10/10 very impressed and we will return to this idyllic spot.
Fabulous duplex apartment with stunning views
Villa Emlas was better than described! A lovely clean uncluttered apartment with all the amenities required for a great holiday. Great customer service from making the booking with the owner to arranging entry and departure from Villa Elmas with the managing agent - all hassle free. Would definitely recommend.
amazing, amazing elmas!!!
My partner and I had the utmost pleasure in staying at the wonderful elmas apartment. The views are to die for and from every aspect. Everything you need is at the apartment and the pool is lovely as it gets the sun all day where a few villas surrounding do not.Small shop was 3 minutes away and kalkan beach club a 10 minute downhill stroll.Staff there were so friendly and had a drink there most evenings before getting the Water Taxi into town.found it a lovely way to start the evenings.Hardest decision is to choose at which restaurant you will eat at.So much choice and all fantastic.10 meals out and honestly every one was great.loved Trio and Kosk.
Boat trip was fantastic value for money, recommend eylul boat, amazing food and service for 70 turkish lira each.
We have travelled the world and stayed in some wonderful and exotic locations but honestly never have we had a more relaxing, trouble free, with wonderful local people and the most beautiful location ever.
Phil has been a pleasure to deal with and has been very helpful throughout.From arranging transfers from the airport to advising us to get the pool boy to get us lovely fresh bread every morning.
We will definitely be returning and hope that will be for many years to come.
Thank you so much Phil and Deorah
Great Apartment With a Stunning View
Our first time in Kisla but what a place to stay. The apartment was ideal for our needs, 2 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms with a view from the roof to die for. A balcony outside the lounge & on the roof to watch the sun go down on and a pool to lie by & catch the sun in the morning & afternoon. We ate our meals on the terrace above the pool which had shades to give you a cool area to sit. Before arrival we had great communication from the owners which shows a personal touch. If we return to Kalkan again, which is highly likely as we've been there 7 times before, I'd certainly look to see if this apartment is available again, certainly the best accommodation we've stayed it in Turkey.
Elmas Villa... what a find!
My wife and I stumbled across Elmas Villa while scrolling through the many listings on Owners Direct.
It looked lovely in the pictures and a friend of our had been to Kalkan in the past and told us how beautiful it was, so we decided to book. We're glad we did! It really is a lovely villa, with stunning views across the bay to Kalkan. It may be quite small but it's perfectly formed, and is the ideal place for a couple's holiday. Four of us were there for the first week and it didn't feel cramped at all. It was lovely and clean and the welcome package provided us with the essentials for our first night. You don't even need to hire a car, which is often a huge added expense when renting a villa, as the water taxis across the bay are cheap and frequent (even the normal taxis are pretty cheap, especially between four). All in all we couldn't have asked for more from a holiday villa really... especially for the very reasonable price that we paid.
The town of Kalkan is beautiful too, with a great, laid back atmosphere and some great restaurants. We found it to be the perfect town for a holiday. The locals are used to tourists (and were all very friendly and helpful) and Kalkan is set up for tourists, but it doesn't feel too 'touristy', like some of the resort towns can, if that makes sense! We went in early October and felt it was a great time of year to go. The weather was perfect, hovering between 25 and 30 degrees for the whole fortnight (we didn't even see a cloud for the first 3 days!) and it wasn't too busy.
We can't recommend the Elmas Villa or Kalkan highly enough really, a lovely villa, in a great town, in a beautiful part of the world... couldn't ask for much more from a holiday!
Fab location, beautiful villa
What a wonderful getaway in a beautiful, light and airy villa with all the modcons you need and close enough to the beach and the town. Would absolutely recommend to anyone and everyone. The photos do not do it justice and our arrival felt seamless and without complications.
From the Owner
“Kalkan is special - everyone who visits loves the people, the restaurants, the views..........most would come back time and again at the drop of a hat, which is why we had to buy our dream home in the sun here!”
Activity and Interests
Five minutes walk to the local beach club which offers most water sports as well as sun bathing, steps into the turqouise Mediterranean and a free water taxi across the bay into the Old Town.
Alternatively, a five minute taxi ride will take you into Kalkan in the evening for those special meals in the rooftop restaurants.
Dalaman Airport has recently been extended and modernised and is around 1hr 30 minutes away by transfer or your own hire car, both of which we can assist you with.
Although not essential with the cheap availability of public transport and taxis, car hire is useful to fully appreciate the beauty of this historic part of Turkey at your own pace.
Approximately 1 km to the centre of Kalkan.
A couple of minutes walk to the local shop and a couple of local restaurants.
A great range of shops, bars and restaurants available in Kalkan itself with a good, busy market on Thursdays.

“Our diamond in the sun (Elmas is Turkish for diamond!), has its own private pool and garden/terrace areas as well as a completely secluded roof terrace, all with superb views over the bay, and superb sunsets at the end of the day as you contemplate which of the superb restaurants in the old town to visit.”
