About the Owner
Hello from Paul & Sandra
The above photo, was taken on a farm in Patara, the farmer let me feed this orphan goat. We had a lovely time. I didn't want to leave.
Paul & I live in Leeds. We have been to several Turkish resorts however, in 2006 we came to Kalamar for the first time and we both fell in love with the place and the people, the following year we bought our villa in beautiful Kalamar Bay. We have been blessed with lots of lovely guests, many book year after year as everyone seems to just want to come back after experiencing the villa and resort.
After Kas Animal Friends Charity helped me with a very ill cat I found whilst on a day out in Kas I will make a donation to their charity with every deposit received. You can find them on Facebook or via Google. We also sponsor 3 of their dogs and look forward to visiting the sanctuary whenever we are in Kalkan.
Guestbook comments from the manager
Hi Sandra We have been home for 4 days and just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at Villa Sandarra. The villa is in a lovely peaceful location with great views of the bay and and we felt totally at home and relaxed from the moment we got there. Kalkan itself is a delight and really picturesque in the evening. We had fantastic meals in beautiful rooftop restaurants and the people were so friendly. The transfers went smoothly and it was reassuring to know that Christine and Gurbuz were on hand if needed. Thank you once again for all your help in arranging our holiday in your beautiful villa. Kind Regards, Neil
Sandarra is a fabulous villa, lots of space, comfortable, close enough to town to make going out every night really easy. Best of all was the service that we had from Sandra and Paul from the moment we booked the villa, arranging the transfers to and from the airport, being certain that we had all the relevant information to make our stay trouble free.

Second visit as perfect as the first
This is the second time my partner and I have stayed in this villa and I doubt it will be our last. In my opinion the villa is perfect for spending some quality couple time. It has beautiful views over Kalamar bay which my partner and I enjoyed from the roof terrace over a meal and drinks. The Turkish ottoman area is also a lovely place to relax over a drink or two. The kitchen is fully equipped and we spent a lot of time preparing meals or having bbq' by the pool. It's in a lovely location but close enough to shops and restaurants if you want to stroll out. Taxis into Kalkan are also really cheap and there are a number of beautiful roof terrace restaurants which again offer stunning views. The overall customer service from the owners has been superb on both occasions, pre and post holiday. There was a small issue with the outside lights and within a matter of hours someone was out to fix it. Airport transfers were organised by the owners and again the efficiency was superb. I would return to this villa time and time again.
Villa and location amazing
We have rented a lot of villas over the years and I can honestly say that this was one of the best we have had. It was immaculately clean and very well presented, with everything we needed. Ali does a great job keeping the pool area and plants maintained on a daily basis. We stayed in Kalkan last year but this location in Kalamar Bay is much quieter and the views are wonderful. Taxi rides to town are very cheap, but there are some excellent restaurants within walking distance too. We hired a car because we like to explore, but you could quite easily manage without as there are so many organised trips you can go on. We hired a boat through Define Tours, who we found offered exceptional service and value. Booking and contact with the owner was very easy, so thank you, we'll be back.
Perfect spot for a holiday in the Kalkan area.
We have recently returned from a magic holiday staying at Villa Sandarra in Kalamar Bay area of Kalkan. We had super service from Sandra and her manager who assisted in making our holiday the best it could be. We were not sure how being out of Kalkan village would affect our holiday. It turned out the location with Kalamar beach club a 5 min walk away and the uncommercialised neighbourhood suited us exactly. Getting into Kalkan for shopping and eating or exploring further a field, such as, Patara and Kas was no problem at all with the jeep we hired. The taxi fare was just 15 lira for the seven seater to get home on the evenings we didn't fancy the walk home. The villa was stylish and had a feel of luxury. We particularly loved the view of the bay from the roof terrace and drinks and card games in the ottoman area as the sun set. We all highly recommend Villa Sandarra.

VILLA SANDARRA - RELAXATION AT ITS BEST
Villa Sandarra close to Kalamar Bay, Kalkan is a fantastic retreat. Having stayed at the villa for the 8th time you cannot help but fall in love with the place. The views from the balcony overlooking Kalamar Bay are astounding. I have been with just my partner and enjoyed the peace and tranquillity of the villa but have also been with all of the family and enjoyed fun in the pool, barbecues on the terrace, walks to the beach which is just a short walk from the villa. Paul and Sandra the villa owner's have made the villa feel like home from home.
The local people are very friendly, once you have been to Kalkan you will want to go back and you will also find that the café/restaurant owners will remember you from your previous visit. We have made many friends in Kalkan and cant wait to book our next visit.
A fabulous villa!
Villa Sandarra cannot come highly recommended! We had a fabulous week there in August 2014. Beautifully appointed, it is a home from home, with everything you could wish for. We prepared brunch every day and the kitchen was perfect for this with all we needed. The bedrooms and ensuites were spot on for our party of 6 as well as the spacious outlay and well maintained pool. We walked into Kalkan every day and even though our party consisted of 4 children, the youngest aged 7, the walk - although hilly on occasion - was fine. The owners provided such excellent customer service, prior to and post holiday, which is unique.
As a well travelled family and a keen user of Owners Direct, I thoroughly recommend Villa Sandarra!
Someone said "if you go to Kalkan you want want to go anywhere else", that was five years ago and the next visit is booked for Sept 13. The villa coupled with its excellent location in Kalamar Bay (close to the sea, cafe's and other facilities) has undoubtedly influenced our repeated visits. In addition you could not wish to engage with Owners who are as freindly and helpful as Paul and Sandra who always ensure the Villa is in excellent condition.

“We are close to Kalamar Beach club, the resort is quiet & peacefu. Kalkan is famous for it's fine dining and outstanding service and has the most beautiful roof terrace and harbour side restaurants, most of which have incredible views over the bay. Kalkan has well over 100 restaurants, which provide incredible choice, quality & outstanding value. Restaurants serve everything from Traditional Turkish meals to International Cuisine. Meals can be enjoyed over several hours in the refreshing evening air. After dark the old town really comes alive. There are jazz and other live music bars. There are great craft shops, interesting little boutiques and amazing hand made jewellery shops if you are looking for an individual piece or gift.”
