Luxury Villa with Private Heated Pool - 3 minutes' walk to the sea!

Bedrooms 4
Separate WC's1
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

4 bedrooms, heated pool, 3 minutes' walk from sea and facilities, wifi. Shopping service available.

Our beautiful villa is the perfect place if you want a relaxing, peaceful holiday or short break. It is located along Turkey's gorgeous Lycian coastline in the picturesque neighbourhood of Kisla on the eastern side of captivating Kalkan. We enjoy fabulous views over a beautiful bay with a backdrop of lush dramatic hillsides. With justification it's been likened to the Italian Riviera.

We offer the best of all worlds: easy access by sea taxi or a regular taxi to the many chic restaurants and bars of bustling Kalkan with its stylish old quarter and cascading bougainvillea. And our lovely setting also provides a quiet and tranquil base to enable you to catch up on your reading or writing, or just chill as much as you want.. or of course explore the outstanding scenery and ancient archeological sites nearby.

The villa offers a spacious layout with 4 generously sized bedrooms upstairs (all en-suite) and large, open-plan living/dining area on the ground floor. French windows lead out onto the stunning private pool/patio area which offers fantastic uninterrupted views across the bay towards the centre of Kalkan. By day you can catch the lovely hot rays and cooling sea breezes whilst turtle spotting in the turquoise and deep blue waters. By night, the view of Kalkan with its twinkling lights shimmering on the water's surface is simply magical.

The facilities include a great sun-deck on the roof terrace with even more amazing views, air-conditioning throughout, plenty of outdoor furniture including a purpose built BBQ, all your standard technology needs e.g. satellite TV, Wifi, Bose docking station, DVD player etc, plus, if you are staying at the start or end of the season, our pool can be heated at no extra charge and our outdoor patio heather can warm you up on the cooler evenings. This makes our villa totally usable from March through November, or even for a very pleasant mid-winter getaway.

We have several restaurants nearby in Kisla though you will want to explore Kalkan of course. We are a 3 minute walk down to the lovely free beach park, which is very safe if you have children or simply fancy a dip in the Med, and from here you can catch the sea taxi over to Kalkan - it's a 10-15 minute fun journey and the cooler sea breeze is so refreshing when the weather is really warm.

The villa can comfortably sleep 8 people so it is a great size for a family booking or possibly 2 families who really enjoy each other's company. It's also perfect for a group of friends/couples wanting to explore this area, which has also been described as the new Tuscany/Dordogne. And because it's so peaceful yet with ready access to some great little restaurants, it's the idyllic spot for a romantic break. And if your family are all making their own way in life, isn't it time you indulged yourselves a little now.

Just to make things as smooth as possible, we can offer reassuring pre-travel advice, organise transfers and/or some exciting trips, and even arrange shopping and delivery for you. We'd love you to come and enjoy Villa Kingfisher.

About Karyn Rutherford

I live with my husband and Cocker Spaniels Missy and Molly in the depths of the country. We are both now retired. We love to escape to Kalkan whenever we can - which is usually three times each year - where we can totally unwind, and blend into the Turkish way of life. There is plenty to do in the way of sightseeing, water sports, boat trips etc but equally if you just want to come and relax then Kalkan is the place for you! Karyn, who is our agent, will welcome you soon after arrival and is never more than a mobile phone call away should you need her help and advice.

Karyn Rutherford purchased this villa in 2006

Why Karyn Rutherford chose Lycian & Turquoise Coast

We first came to Kalkan 17 years ago. We bought a lovely new ground floor garden apartment in Kisla with beautiful views. However the pool was of course shared with the other five apartments and so we decided to build a villa close by in order to have peace and tranquility. We love Kalkan but we especially love Kisla as it is so quiet and peaceful with breathtaking views. In the past few years a number of restaurants have opened in Kisla which means you do not have to taxi in to Kalkan in the evening to get a good meal.

We are 3 minutes walk from Kalkan Beach Park and the water taxi into Kalkan. The beach park has excellent facilities for children including a protected pool area and water slide. There is also access to the sea from a small beach area. The beach park is free to use. Turtles can be seen regularly in this area.

What makes this villa unique

In front of our property there is an olive grove which is 'green land' and therefore cannot be built on. This means that, unlike many villas close by, we have uninterrupted views of the sea as opposed to looking out on the back of someone else's villa!

Our latest addition is a pool heater which is fairly rare in Kalkan. This extends the season and is at no extra cost.

We grow lemons, grapefruits and oranges, as well as a range of herbs, which we are happy for you to use during your stay.

Our agent is also more than happy to organise shopping to be delivered to the villa - just drop her an email and it will be done!

For your convenience, there are two free mobile phones for local calls, saving you roaming charges on your own mobiles.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"A wonderfully appointed holiday house with all one could ever need. Everything seems to have been thought of. It is in easy reach of the sea with beautiful views over Kalkan bay and close to the boat service to Kalkan. Thoroughly recommended." Annie & Pat Gardner

Wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

A glorious week in Villa Kingfisher and have already booked up again for next June. The villa is situated in Kisla, our favourite location in Kalkan and a very quick and easy walk to the sea. Beautiful views over the bay and every comfort inside and outside the villa.

Highly recommended and very well managed by Karyn.

Private Villa Heaven in Kalkan Hotspot!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from 2 glorious weeks in Kalkan which we know well having visited 5 times previously.

Staying at Kingfisher Villa has been the best stay so far. From initial booking which was so easy, to location, quality and facilities we couldn't fault it.

As a family with teenage daughters & their freinds the accommodation was fantastic and spacious (the 4 ensuite bathrooms provided no arguments when all getting ready for to go out for dinner!)

Private pool and patio area offered stunning views over the bay/Kalkan and Beach club / Sea was minutes walk away.

Kingfisher villa is stunning and excellently maintained and the agents who met us on arrival were so helpful & always going the extra mile for anything we needed.

I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone so much so we can't wait to go back!!

Villa Kingfisher - the perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holIdat at Villa Kingfisher in Kalkan. Out only regret was that we couldn't stay for two weeks. The villa was spotlessly clean and had every amenity. The location was beautiful and the views, especially the sunsets, stunning. The management of the villa was excellent and nothing was too much trouble and the property and the pool are excellently maintained. The centre of Kalkan is a taxi ride away but taxis arrive within a few minutes of a call and are very reasonably priced. The villa is a couple of minutes walk from three beach clubs - we loved the Mahal Beach Club. I would thoroughly recommend Villa Kingfisher and hope to make return visits.

We have come to Kingfisher for several years and found it an ideal holiday home. The villa is well and attractively appointed, everything is very clean and has every facility. It overlooks a beautiful bay; the beach and The Beach Club are only a short stroll away.

One is looked after in a most spoiling way and it is almost impossible not to really enjoy oneself here.

Perfect family holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 stayed here for 10 days. The villa is spacious and very well equipped, so much so that it felt like a proper home rather than a holiday home. The villa was spotlessly clean and the facilities exceptional (en-suites in all bedrooms) dishwasher and washing machine were a real bonus. The pool and patio area had stunning views over Kalkan bay and the pool was cleaned on a daily basis. Karen, who manages rental of the property attended to our needs without fail, arranging shopping, giving us details of the best shops, restaurants and things to do. We found the mobile phone provided especially useful for booking restaurants and booking taxi's. We went on a boat trips with Anil boat which really was the highlight of the holiday. we would also recommend Kaputas beach for a day with its stunning setting and beautiful sandy beach. We had a BBQ on a few nights at the villa and enjoyed eating in Kalkan where there is a huge choice from smart restaurants to kebab cafe's and traditional Turkish kitchens. We would all highly recommend this villa for a large family group wishing to spend some time together.
