About John Bowden

My wife and I are recently retired, and now all our children have flown the nest, we too are ready to spread our wings a little further. All of which means our beautiful second home in Kalkan is used less at the moment. We are now happy to rent it out which will hopefully help fund our adventures!

Barbara and John Bowden

John Bowden purchased this house in 2002

Why John Bowden chose Kalkan

We first came to Kalkan in 1998 and instantly fell in love. Several holidays later, we decided to take the plunge and buy our own home here. Villa Ayla has been the centre of many happy family holidays, and is now playing host to an expanding third generation! We chose this location because it combines the peace of Kalamar Bay, with easy access to Kalkan town, with all the bustle of shops, restaurants, banks and quaint houses.

Right next to the house are steps leading down to the sea, where there is a diving school, offering a full range of Padi accredited courses as well as trial dives for beginners. Various water sports are available, and there is a restaurant serving lunches, snacks and evening meals. There is a taverna at the end of the road, and a small supermarket 5 minutes walk.

What makes this house unique

The property benefits from being detached and standing in its own gardens, which include flowers and trees including olive trees. It has its own private pool for the exclusive use of our guests. The pool is maintained daily, and the garden has an automatic watering system. The house accommodates 6 adults and 2 children in 4 bedrooms, and there is also a cot.

Right next to the house are steps leading down to the sea, which is only 5 minutes away. There are beautiful views over the bay from the upstairs balcony, the perfect place to watch the sun go down.

It is a 15/20 minute walk into town, or there is a local bus (dolmus) running continuously in season or taxis which are reasonably priced and readily available.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'House was delightful. Everything ran smoothly including transfers to and from the airport. Plenty to see and do when not relaxing by the pool. Thank you for a lovely holiday.' Howard Clarke.

"Thank you both for a lovely holiday. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. There was everything we needed in the house, a real home from home in beautiful surroundings. We hope to come back sometime soon". Clare and Darren Venys-Moran

"The house was perfect for our needs. Kalkan is a charming little town. We walked in a few times, but it was so hot we spent a lot of time relaxing by the pool, or down at the Beach Club. The teenagers loved the pizzas at Cafe House at the end of the road!" L. Moorhouse

Thank you for sharing your lovely house with us. We thought it was brilliant. We loved the Beach Club and all it's watersports & the fabulous choice of restaurants in Kalkan at night. Had a few barbecues round the pool at night so have left you a bag of charcoal! We'll be back next year please! Fran W

The sandy beaches of Kaputas and Patara are 5mls and 12mls respectively. Both can be reached by bus or taxi if you don't have a car.


Dalaman Airport is one and three quarter hours by car. Antalya Airport is three hours. Transfers can be arranged at cost, or you can hire a car for the duration of your holiday.

Kalkan is well served with shops, banks, traditional and modern cafes and restaurants, many perched on rooftops overlooking the mosque and harbour.

Both available by local bus, taxi or car. Inland are many traditional villages and the Taurus Mountains provide spectacular scenery and opportunities for keen walkers.
