Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fabulous time at Kalkan; the villa was perfect, blue skies

everyday, everything went like clockwork. Ian, Claire

Fantastic time in Kalkan and Villa Samanyolu. The villa was everything we could have hoped for, spacious, luxurious and at the end of a hard day soaking up the sun and sea it was a delight to return 'home'! S, J, J & T.

Well, we absolutely loved the villa Everything about it was wonderful, from the light fresh décor to the magnificent views.We thought that the whole house felt lovely and spacious with plenty of storage space, really comfortable beds, gorgeous en-suites. The salt pool was fantastic. Helen & Peter.

The villa was perfect with unbelievable views! no complaints whatsoever, the saltwater pool was lovely. We felt very much at home and were sad to leave "thank you". Irene.

The villa was very luxurious (a far cry from past holiday accommodation) and the area was really beautiful. Annette and David.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed twice at Villa Samanyolu, both times we have loved the area and especially the villa, for a family of 4 it is more than spacious and has all the amenities required for a great time. The villa is immaculate and help is always on hand for any issues, there are resteraunts and a small shop close buy but clearly Kalkan is very close by, walking (if you like steep hills) or by taxis which are always ready to come. There is also the Kalkan beach club very close by with lots to do there also. I would highly recommend a stay at this location. Gareth and Jo.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the fantastic review. It's always a pleasure to have guests return to Villa Samanyolu. I keep the villa looking good and each year invest in new facilities so guests are never disappointed - 2016 included, new eGlass double glazing in the top bedroom; improved siting of the wardrobe making the Air Con unit more effective; new modern shower units throughout; modern replacement glass and aluminium railings to improve the views. Hope to see you again at Villa Samanyolu in the great area of Kisla in beautiful Kalkan.

Great place to return to .....

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed at Villa Samanyolu for three years running this visit did not disappoint. I have noticed improvements in the area - in particular the local beach club - just a short walk away - is the best in the area. Spending time between the beach club and the villa could be all that you need for a luxury relaxing holiday. Of course there are many more activities if you want them. The villa itself has everything you need. The view from the top balcony is hard to beat, and the pool essential for cooling down. I would thoroughly recommend Villa Samanyolu for a perfect holiday venue.

Wonderful location & Villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Samanyolu is a beautifully appointed, spacious well equipped property with excellent views of Kalkan bay and the Taurus mountains. The property was clean and well maintained, with welcome essentials (tea, coffee, milk etc) on our arrival. The pool though smaller than we anticipated was lovely and cleaned daily. Beds were comfortable. The master suite was lovely, but due it being the hottest part of the year it was simply too hot to sleep in - we were much cooler in the pool level bedroom. Philip was very helpful before and during our stay, providing essential information and keeping us updated. Philip and the property managers he used organised our transfer from/to airport which was excellent service and competitively priced. There was plenty to occupy all members of the family as Kalkan Beach Park was a few minutes walk away. The roads to and around Kalkan and Kisla are extremely steep which was not an issue for us (great exercise!) but maybe a consideration for families with very young children or individuals with mobility issues. The water taxi runs from the beach park to Kalkan very frequently and takes about 6 minutes. Kalkan is lovely with fabulous restaurants (Sade, Kalamaki, Rosemary are worth a mention), great shops and bars, the general feeling is lively and friendly without being too rowdy. A boat trip is a must and is great value, we would also recommend the Saklikent Gorge/Tlos/ Patara beach trip. We had a very enjoyable and memorable holiday, would love to return and would recommend to families like ours with teenagers.

Owner's Response: What a nice review. As stated all areas of Kalkan are steep so not really suitable for people with mobility problems - although I do know a few people who use walking sticks and they take a taxi everywhere. The steep hills mean sensational views of course. The pool is actually a little larger than most for a private villa.

We had a great stay at Villa Samanyolu, the villa is lovely - spacious, clean with all the amenities you need. The top balcony is perfect for relaxing early evening and the pool is great (you wouldn't know it's saltwater at all). Located close to some lovely beach clubs and taxi to town is very cheap. Philip was a great help. Would definitely recommend.

We have been to kalkan for 4 years on the trot .. and loved it . This year we tried kisla and villa saminyolu. .. It is a stunning villa with views that just take you're breath away. It provided everything you need for a hassle free break. The pool was amazing ... It just fit the bill for a fantastic two weeks away from the maddening crowds .... We loved it ... and would most definitely recommend and return .... many thanks Philip for letting us stay in your beautiful villa .

From the Owner

I acquired Villa Samanyolu as a holiday home after staying with friends in their lovely villa in Kisla. I love the area, the food, and the Turkish people are exceptionally friendly. I spent a week looking at a lot of properties and as soon as I walked into Villa Samanyolu I knew this was the one. Many of the other properties were excellent, but none of them had the feeling of being a home and a luxury one at that! Kalkan is a great little upmarket town with everything you need for a successful holiday. In my view the Kisla area is the best in Kalkan. There's an abundance of restaurants of excellent quality and lots of things to do and places of interest to visit.

From the Owner

Villa Samanyolu is in a fantastic location very close to the sea with stunning views of the bay. There is a great bar/restaurant a few streets behind the villa together with a small shop. The town is within easy striking distance via water taxi, bus, taxi or on foot if you feel like an early evening stroll. The villa itself is very well appointed with a luxurious and yet homely feeling. I have no doubt you will sink into a relaxing routine. If you are anything like me this will involve sitting out under the stars in the evening enjoying conversation and a glass of one of the excellent local wines.
