Charming Villa With Private Pool Very Close To Town



Updated: 01-Dec-2016
Peaceful But Centrally Located Villa With Lots of Privacy. Ideal For Couples/Small Families

Pembe Ev is a charming, comfortable and surprisingly private villa set amidst natural olive tree parkland on two sides and at the end of small little used residential road. Just a 5-10 minute easy walk to town there are also shops, cafe and restaurants right on your doorstep. Once the owners permanent home it is well equipped throughout and maintains a real home from home feeling. A large pool terrace for outdoor living faces south and west surrounded by mature oleanders and bougainvillea. A large covered pergola offers much needed shade in the peak summer heat and is ultimately private. The roof terrace has a large day bed from which to enjoy the stunning sea views across the bay and has already led to a marriage proposal from some of our previous guests! All in all Pembe Ev is a favourite holiday choice and our guests return year on year with the feeling that they are coming home.

About the Owner

I am Bridget Karaaslan and with my husband Sakir, run a well established estate agency called Black Lion in Kalkan. I own and/or manage a very small selection of Kalkan properties catering for between 2 to 10 people, with a variety of locations and suitable for various budgets. Unlike most 'rental agencies' I know the properties intimately and in many cases personally own and manage them.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Without a doubt the most relaxing holiday I can remember And ... the roof terrace was the perfect romantic location to propose to Sonja under the stars!! Were hooked with Pembe Ev and I'm sure it won't be long until we return. Oh yes by the way she said YES! Robert Fell

Back again at Pembe Ev for the 5th year running -it really feels like home from home! Lisa and Alan McLachlan

Marvellous Pembe Ev

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this charming villa.

Pembe Ev is located at the end of a quiet street and is only 5-7 minutes walk from the start of the shops of the town centre. The villa was immaculately clean on arrival and we were really pleased with the accommodation during our stay.

Comfortable relaxing Villa in a delightful town

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in Kalkan the night before and fell in love with the town overnight even before we entered the villa on the Saturday. The Vila only enhanced and added to our first impressions. Everything we needed for a relaxing holiday. The view from the top balcony is among the best we have experienced, the pool was warm, the bedding comfortable all we needed. Ideally positioned, walkable to the town at the end of what was described to us by an English local as "Pretty Street". I'm not sure that we have felt so relaxed on a holiday ever. The Villa, the people, the town, the atmosphere, the restaurants and shops all combined beautifully to make this happen. Bridget left specific and helpful instructions about getting best from the Villa and the surrounding area which is always a great help. I urge you all to come and experience what so many before us have laid testimony to ....a great holiday in a perfect setting at a wonderful villa.

We had a wonderful week in Kalkan. The property was even better than we had hoped (we had been warned that the second bedroom was small but it was perfectly adequate for our 16 and 20 year old daughters) and Bridget went out of her way to ensure that everything was perfect.

We will definitely return to Kalkan and the only reason we wouldn't return to this property would be our desire to bring our eldest daughter and son-in-law along too. If they can't make it we will be back.

Thank you Bridget for all your help.

Great property, everything we wanted

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Kalkan 6 times in different villas, and this is one of the best. It's a great location, private, but with easy access to the town. The villa was well maintained, with well stocked kitchen for plates, bowls glasses etc. Lovely comfortable bed in the main bedroom. Our 2 teenage girls shared the 2nd bedroom, and although small, it was absolutely fine.

Excellent - I love Kalkan

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous villa. The location is just perfect, being at the end of a secluded lane but only 10 mins walk to town.

The villa is well equipped and maintained with daily service whereby the outside patio is cleaned and washed down. The private pool has been a godsend as we were basking in temperature of mid 30s every day. Do also try to have an evening cocktails before your dinner on the roof terrace as the view across Kalkan bay is simply the best.

We were visited everyday by the local cats – there were about 5 – 6 of them. They are very appreciative if you feed them and we have filled up the cat biscuits container which is located in the outside cupboard (outside the kitchen). There is also a local tortoise that come by the gate, and he loves a bit of salad if you have any to spare.

We loved it so much we have already booked for next year. Our thanks to Bridget and her team for looking after us – 1 text message on Sunday about running low on bottled water (not urgently) and 20L was delivered within 30 mins. Now that’s what I call service.

Semi datched house with pool in good location.

  • 5 of 5

Had a very enjoyable and relaxing week at Pembe Ev.

House is on 3 floors with amazing views from top. Outside there is a pool with a large area for sunbathing and a table and chairs for eating lunch in the shade. Close to food shops and a 5 to 10 minute stroll to the many eating places in Kalkan.

Overall highly recommended .

From the Owner

Pembe Ev belongs to my mum Jane who bought it on my insistence that she needed a place in Kalkan to be close to me - but not actually living with me! Pembe Ev has such a convenient location for the town and shops and surrounding parkland gives it privacy. We have planted many trees around the house and it has matured into a small paradise. In 2012 my mum decided to move permanently to Kalkan and purchased a larger home but Pembe Ev remains in the family now for holiday rentals as no one could bear to part with it.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Dalaman at 135 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Jonnys at 120 Metres Nearest Restaurant : Bread and More at 100 Metres Nearest Beach : Kalkan at 500 Metres Car: not necessary

Special interest holidays:

Kalkan is ideal for all types of water activities. The Bay has a Blue Flag Award for cleanliness and is ideal for a PADI diving course or learning to sail or water ski. Keen walkers & hikers can explore parts of the ancient Lycian Way which passes directly through the town. On Patara Beach are early morning horse ridding sessions and in the summer Yoga classes are available on the sea front at Villa Mahal. Kalkan will inspire any photographer or painter with numerous photo and painting opportunities so don't forget to bring your camera and brushes. Turkish cooking classes are usually available through Guru's restaurant along with wine tasting evenings.


The villa is within a 5 minute walk of the Yali Beach Club and 10 minute walk to Kalkan beach and the harbour. From the harbour you can catch the water taxis to Palm Beach, Patara Prince beach, Villa Mahal and Kalkan Park beach clubs. The nearest sandy beach is Kaputas, a small beach at the bottom of a gorge with turquoise blue water and just 5 minutes by car/local bus. The 18km sandy beach at Patara (protected nature reserve and totally unspoilt) is a 20 minute car/local bus ride away.


Nearest airport is Dalaman a 75-90 min car journey. An alternative is Antalya a 2½ - 3 hours drive by car. We advise a private airport transfer on arrival to the villa, which we can arrange - although it is possible to travel with local transport or to hire a car at the airport and drive yourself. A car is not necessary for staying the property and you can hire a car on a daily basis once you arrive for planned day trips out.


The next nearest town to Kalkan is Kas, a 27km / 30 min drive away. Kas is worth visiting just for the stunning scenery on the coastal road. The nearest large town is Fethiye a 50 minute drive away with its bustling market, harbour and fish restaurants. Many historical sites are within a 45 minute drive of Kalkan including Xanthos, Tlos, and Pinara. Other places of interest are Saklikent Gorge, and the traditional villages of Bezirgan and Islamlar just a short drive up into the Taurus Mountains.

Further Details:

Kalkan has 7 major banks all with cash machines accepting most credit cards plus a local post office. Internet cafes and phone shops to stay in touch with home. There are English speaking doctors and a dentist if required. Don’t miss the experience of a Turkish bath or Hamam at the Atlantis well being centre, where there is also a small gym for fitness enthusiasts. Kalkan is well known for its array of excellent restaurants high up on roof terraces in the old town or by the harbour. Don't miss the traditional eateries like Belgin's kitchen with authentic Turkish food, live Turkish music and the chance to smoke a water pipe or the small kebab houses, pide (pizza) and pancake restaurants. Must Do's When In Kalkan: A day trip to Kekova/Simena, Saklikent Gorge and A Boat Trip On Kalkan Bay.

Pembe Ev is and easy walk to town yet far enough from the bustle of the town centre to be peaceful. Situated at the end of an unmade road and surrounded by parkland which we have planted with trees, Pembe Ev has matured into a beautiful little villa offering tranquility, peace and privacy to all who visit. The pool terrace area is large offering sun and shade and the roof terrace a pure delight with stunning views of Kalkan Bay. You might say the best things come in small packages and this is definately the case with this little villa.
