Guestbook comments from the owner

'This place is a tonic and I feel healed of my hectic London life. Enjoy it with Gin - there is no better view of an evening than in the jacuzzi.' Louise Drum, London.

'Perhaps the best holiday of our lives and that is against very stiff competition', Mark, UK.

'We have found our holiday location for life', Richard, UK.

I don't think in all my travels, and there have been a lot; that I have come across a nicer, more sincere, warm population of people. We were amazed by how just hospitable and friendly everyone from Kalkan is...and the fact they were genuinely concerned that we were having a great time. Adam, London.

'Its such a wonderful place, the pictures on the website are great but they really don't do it justice!!' Sarah, honeymooner

What a view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at gin and tonic villa for 10 days and what can we say? The photos are exactly what you get. The view is amazing. Watch the boats going to and from Kalkan and towards the evening time watch the sunset from one of the balconies. The villa is so relaxing we didn't go very far for th first couple of days but then hired a car and toured the coast road. Amazing beaches and that sea.......wonderful!

The pool was looked after each day and the daily arrival of a fresh loaf was a brilliant touch.

We were even able to rescue a tortoise which was crossing the road !

We wIll definitely return to Kalamar Bay

Kalkan's Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

We are two couples who have just returned from a totally relaxing holiday right on the Mediterranean. Top points to management - especially Karen and Rambo who made us feel so welcome. Daily swims in the sea below the house followed up by a float in the infinity pool adds naturally to a leisurely lunch around the barbecue. The house is great to stay in and unlike some villas we visited, has unobstructed views over the whole of Kalamar Bay.

While so much of this part of the world is troubled by the plight of refugees, Kalkan and the surrounding area are not affected as the Greek islands are too distant. Our trip back to Kalkan after a few years assured us that this is still the place to stay with its beautiful harbour and quaint shops and restaurants if planning a relaxing sojourn in Turkey. We'll be back to Gin and Tonic!

My friend and I have just returned from a beautiful 2.5 weeks holiday and we were both in tears at leaving! Stunning villa looked after impeccably by both Liz the owner and Karen the wonderful on site Manager who was second to none helping us. The villa is just breathtaking with such a WOW factor!! Lovely friendly neighbours and breathtaking views. Sun all day even in October although chillier of an evening. Kalkan itself is wonderful and we met and made a lot of new friends - esp Infinity Jewellers who we can highly recommend. Can't wait to go back next season. Thank you to my friend who found this little piece of heaven for us!!

A little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 2 weeks in PARADISE .... and having been lucky enough to have travelled to many different parts of the world, I don't use this word likely !!

Gin & Tonic will just take your breath away ! the views are jaw dropping and the moment you walk in you feel you never want to leave !!

I must have taken over 300 photos of the villa and the views it offers you....Stunning....just stunning.

The accommodation is to a very high standard and everything is provided to ensure you can feel completely at home.

It is our second time to Kalkan and we have once again fallen in love with the place and the wonderful people.

If you have booked Gin & Tonic.....then LUCKY YOU !!!! you will never, ever forget your time there.

Thank you Liz for all your help and sharing you wonderful home with us.

Kalamar Bay

Perfect holiday location

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son and I recently spent one week at Gin and Tonic Villa in Kalamar Bay and it was just perfect. We were all in need of rest and relaxation after a very busy year and the Villa and location provided just what we needed. Kalamar Bay is just magnificent and we spent most of our week relaxing in the villa. We rarely needed to venture into town, although the town of Kalkan is just a 10 minute taxi ride away. Kalamar Bay itself also has some wonderful restaurants and bars which are just a short walk away from the Villa and many of them also provide home delivery. I would highly recommend Kalamar Bay and Gin and Tonic Villa to anyone who just wants to get away from it all.

From the Owner

When you are there, you will understand why we felt compelled to buy this little piece of heaven. Over the years, we have seen many of our guests investigate and then go on to buy a property in the area, recognising what a special place it is for all generations. Properties this close to the sea come up so rarely and we are delighted we made the decision and have enjoyed it every year, along with our wonderful guests.

Activity and Interests

Car: not necessary

Special interest holidays:

Turkish cooking lessons and catering can be arranged at the villa in coordination with the local agent. Scuba diving available within a few minutes walk with seven dive sites, including a shipwreck. Banana boat rides, floating trampoline and tyre rides available at local beach club. Well being centre offers private Turkish bath (option for the traditional experience!), facials, manicures, waxing, hairdressing, etc. Sailing available at the marina. There are also some lovely walks where unusual birds and baby tortoises can be found. If you are a foodie, there are over 200 restaurants in Kalkan to entertain you with many set in the rooftops of the town.


To the side of the villa, there are stairs going down to a platform providing entrance into the Mediterranean. Alternatively Kalkan beach is located to the left of the marina. Kaputas beach is approx 10 mins drive/Dolmus ride towards Kas. The famous Patara beach is 20 mins drive/Dolmus ride away and offers 11km of unspoilt coastline.


There are charter and scheduled flights to Dalaman Airport from most UK airports during the summer season. Flight time is approx. 4 hours. Travel to the villa is about 90 minutes through some stunning scenery. We can arrange airport transfers in air-conditioned car/van for approx £55 each way, per vehicle. Local taxis and dolmus are cheap and plentiful for local travel into Kalkan or neighbouring towns. We can also assist with car hire from the airport or Kalkan.

Further Details:

Kalkan is one of Turkey's best kept secrets, nestling at the foot of the Taurus mountains with one of the prettiest bays on the Mediterranean coast. Once a tiny fishing village it is now a small, sophisticated resort which appeals to the discerning visitor. Its narrow cobbled streets wind down to the harbour and are lined with numerous interesting shops selling a variety of goods such as carpets, jewellery and local crafts. There are a multitude of excellent roof top and water side restaurants serving all manner of culinary delights including many local dishes. After your meal you can go for a stroll and soak up the wonderful atmosphere of Kalkan at night....perhaps do a little shopping and finish with a night cap at one of Kalkan's small bars. If you are feeling energetic there are lots of local sporting activities such as scuba diving, trekking and jet ski-ing etc. Perhaps take a trip to one of the many magnificent historical sites such as Xanthos, Tlos or Myra and Kekova....or maybe just relax by your own private pool. There is something for everyone in Kalkan!
