About the Owner
Peter and Jenny are retired and could not have setteled in a better place.We are blessed with a cracking family and 4 grand chlidren. They visit us each year for the holidays, have a great time and leave us shattered when they go! We very much enjoy the relaxed style of living here, very social and of course the weather helps as a lot of the time is spent out-side, beach bar-b's etc.
Other family members are spread around the globe and although we keep in regular touch by to-days amazing electronics, we don't get to see them often enough.
Jenny originaly comes from Oxfordshire whilst Peter was from South London and Berkshire.

The perfect place
Communication with Peter and Jenny was flawless from the first contact.The villa was perfect in every way.We had a relaxing stay and will definitely return.The private pool was perfect as the temperatures rose to 40°.Bobs restaurant is well worth a visit or two the food is cooked to perfection and he has a shop below the restaurant that stocks most things.The villa location is nice and quiet and only a short walk to water taxi service into Kalkan.Peter had arranged airport transfers for us and on arrival we were greeted by the driver that took us to the apartment.We also hired a car from the taxi company that was very affordable at £25 a day ! We have taken a large number of photos between us checkout https://flic.kr/s/aHskhnvRNW and https://flic.kr/s/aHskh4YVeG these are a link to our flickr photostreams.You will not be disappointed with this villa or location and the service from Peter & Jenny and their friends Andrew & Jenny who met us on arrival at 4.00am ! Highly recommended.Trevor and Justine August 2015.
On arrival late at night we were welcomed by Peter the owner who showed us round his villa, everything on the listing description was accurate and Peter also provided Milk, butter, bread, water and other essentials to get us started Peter even provided 2 bottles of Effes beer which were most welcome. Kalkan is about a 25 minute walk from Kisla but the best way to get into Kalkan is to walk down the hill to the beach bar (about 10 minute walk) and get the water taxi which costs 5 lira per person and takes about 15 minutes to get in to Kalkan it is a great way to start your evening out. There are lots of good restaurants to choose from Small House been our favourite.
If you feel like staying local there is a quaint boutique hotel next door called Findaka House Hotel that doe's really good food or if you feel like doing a BBQ (BBQ is provided on the terrace) Bob's supermarket just up the road where you can buy all you need for your night in, Bob also has a restaurant above his shop where you can have lunch or a evening meal with the most amazing views over Kalkan.
If you are looking for a relaxing holiday with peace and quiet where you can walk out of your door on to a terrace and have your very own pool then this is the place for you. "Perfect"
From the Owner
“Both of us have travelled quite a bit but we just fell in love with Turkey over the years and Kalkan in particular. There is the most spectacular scenery where we live of sea + mountains. Within a half hours drive we can be into the mountains and valleys for a totally different type of scenery but just as magnificent. The history of the area and the ancient ruins around us are in abundance and leave you open mouthed at times. All this and yet Kalkan offers as much for us as it does for the visitor. Quaint streets with great architecture,all sorts of shops, restaurants, banks and a smashing little harbour. This offers a fair amount of boat trips in the summer plus other water sport activities. We are within 5mins. walk of a beach, 25mins. walk to the town centre but very quiet and peaceful”
Activity and Interests
There is a beach club and stoney beach 5mins. walk away with toilet / changing rooms etc. and offers meals/ drinks. It also offers a water chute, some water sports and a water taxi service to Kalkan harbour.
Kalkan has a larger stoney beach also with the above facilities plus water sports.
A 20min. car drive away is Patara beach. Also served by a bus service from Kalkan. This beach is sandy,miles long, has all facilities and is approached through the Patara Roman ruins site. A "must" visit.

Kalkan is a 5min. drive or 25min. walk away.There is a new bus service, started this August, from Kisla to Kalkan and several other places of interest. Kas, another small delightful harbour town is 30mins. away along the most scenic of routes. Fethiye is the largest town, about an hours drive and is host to one of the best markets (Tuesdays) to be found. Kalkan is a great base for historical sites with many being within a one hour drive.
Kalkan offers a terrific range of good restaurants and eating houses. Most have views over the harbour with roof top terraces or harbour frontage.There are supermarkets, mini markets, shops of all sorts to suit most holiday makers, several banks and ATM machines.

From the Owner
“The property has a large private swimming pool and there is a great feeling of space on the pool terrace and plenty of room for sun loungers and dining table for at least 6 people.The property has a couple of market shops within a short walk, plus the beach and a boat taxi that takes you back and forward to Kalkan harbour, should you want to try something different. Jenny and Peter live above the large, spacious, luxury apartment and are on hand to look after you and offer any help if required. There is plenty to do in the area if you so desire or you can just sit back, soak up the sun, get the tan and relax. There is a welcome pack on arrival so that you don't have to fly out and do the shopping.”
