About Neil Howard

Myself and Anita were married in Kalkan in September 2009.. We plan to spend many, many happy years in this wonderful location

We are both English and hope you find our home away from home ideal for your holidays.

Neil Howard purchased this villa in 2006

Why Neil Howard chose Lycian & Turquoise Coast

we have been visiting Kalkan and the surrounding areas since 1999. In 2005 we decided why wait any longer, and purchased the land on which Villa Elsa was built for us....we have never looked back. Kalamar Bay is charming, peaceful and an idyllic place to spend a relaxing break

Exceptional! 5/5 -

Lovely Villa, people, location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Villa Elsa and everything was as mentioned in other reviews. The owners take real pride and consideration into everything which makes for a lovely stress free and well managed break. Neil was very unobtrusive but helpful, dropping in an e-mail here and there to check all was okay and if we needed anything. Define Tours are great, very laid back and friendly, Ozgur was particularly helpful. We found the people very warm and friendly and it's just a great area and place for a Holiday. Can't fault Villa Elsa or the conscientious way it's all run. Thank you! We recommend going to Paprika restaurant and ask for Memish, who will arrange a lunch in the best Mountain Village trout farm. Great Holiday.

Gorgeous villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We were looked after from the minute we made the booking. Neil, the owner could not have been more helpful, he arranged our transfers from the airport, he organised for someone to come and collect us to take us to the supermarket the morning after we arrived and he had left us a much needed bottle of wine, bread and other goodies which was much appreciated as we did not get to the villa until midnight. Some one came every day to tidy up around the pool and water the beautiful pots which were full of stunning flowers. The villa was cleaned immaculately half way through our week. The bedrooms were wonderful, two with balconies with views to the sea and one leading onto the fabulous roof terrace where we sat before going out for dinner having a drink.

I cannot recommend this villa highly enough or the wonderful owners and would not hesitate to visit again.

Absolutely beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a week at villa Elsa having rented many different properties whilst visiting Kalkan. Villa Elsa is by far our favourite. Neil and Anita are really helpful with all the booking / car hire and anything you need to know . The villa is very comfortable each room with its own balcony and a very usable open plan living space that with lots of personal detail made it feel like home. The thing we liked especially were the shrubs and plants....beautiful and well maintained , the garden was a delight and the top terrace with all the pots made for a lovely place to sit and enjoy the view. Our best trip to Kalkan yet..and not our last.

Lovely Villa, Lovely Town

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Turkey and Kalkan, it had been recommended by a friend so we thought we would give it a go. Neil was quick with his response to our enquiry about Villa Elsa and from the time we confirmed the booking he was on the ball, giving us information about the area and offering assistance. Let Neil take care of the car for you with Ozgur from Define Tours, the best car hire service I've ever had!

As we arrived at Dalaman late, the car hire delivery driver took us to the villa so we didn't get lost in the dark.

The villa was spotless and well equipped with plenty of space for the four of us, six would be no problem.

Kalkan is a clean, safe and attractive town with plenty of facilities. We were diving and took our dive trips out of Kas, a scenic 20 minute drive away. We would recommend Natura Blue in Kas, we tried the local Kalamar Dive boat but we're very disappointed in comparison. Maybe it was because were the last of the season but they didn't seem interested and just went through the motions.

The pool was a lovely size, if a little fresh (but is was October) and plenty of nice furniture around the pool. Beautiful views of The bay from all levels, especially the upper terrace.

We have stayed in plenty of villas and apartments and this is among the best of the lot, none better at the price.

I must admit to finding the hills a bit challenging, but taxis to and from the town are cheap enough if you can't handle the walk.

One of our best Holidays so far and I thoroughly recommend tVilla Elsa

Owner's Response: During 2014 we have had great guests that have all asked for a variety of holiday experiences during their stay at Villa Elsa....Trying to assist is the least we can do, everyone has differing needs and we respect this......Thanks for a great 2014 all of you.....hopefully 2015 continues in the same way... Kind Regards Neil & Anita

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Just back from our first visit to Kalkan and Villa Elsa far exceeded our already high expectations. The villa is spacious, well laid out, beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. The plants around the pool area are fully established providing a lovely colourful screening. Everything you could ever need at the villa has been thought about and provided. The roof terrace is such a bonus and a lovely spot to watch the sunset at the end of the day with stunning views over the bay. Neil and Anita were extremely helpful before the holiday started and were in touch during to check we had everything we needed. They couldn't have been any more helpful and I genuinely felt they wanted us to have the best holiday........which we did! So many good restaurants in Kalkan to choose from in the evening - we did not have one bad meal and Cafe Vita close to Villa Elsa provided a great place for breakfast. We have only praise for Villa Elsa and Kalkan and hope to visit again in the not too distant future.
