Luxurious Villa In Kalkan With Stunning views over the bay from all rooms!



Updated: 04-Dec-2016
The Villa overlooks both Kalkan and Kas bay: Infinity Pool, Terrace etc.

Villa Simzer, set in the jewel of Kalkans Red Rock area, is now welcoming discerning guests. Designed by us for optimum family fun and comfort, in collaboration with one of Kalkan's top developers, she presents a fascinating "eclectic" mix of the very best the UK and Turkey can offer. She sits squarely above Kalkan Bay and harbour with totally uninterrupted views from her infinity pool (with integral children's pool and roman bath steps) and all rooms. Flanked to one side by olive groves and carefully laid out, she enjoys good levels of privacy with only one other villa within close proximity to her boundaries.The roof terrace offers an excellent opportunity to obliterate any tan marks whilst the children are occupied by games and toys for all ages and any keen partner conducts business via broadband. The garden is a feature and it is my strong belief that iron work is restricted to gates and balustrade. I believe that sofas are for sitting on, not sleeping on, hence the imported comforts.

About the Owner

I am a happily married Mother to five (all over 20) and Grandmother to two at the last count. I am a food critic, interior designer, keen gardener and "colourful" writer. My husband runs his own Property Consultancy business and is a qualified surveyor - we make a very good team when it comes to designing, developing and presenting properties for comfortable and efficient family living. When at home we reside on the top of the Ashdown Forest (Winnie The Pooh Land), Duddleswell, which sits between Royal Tunbridge Wells and Lewes in East Sussex. Our English home was chosen for its location and what we thought were the best views in the World - until, we found an even better view here in Turkey, hence the development of Villa Simzer. Every window/area is blessed with that view. Wooooh!

Great Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Simzer for a family holiday with our children and grandchildren (6 adults, 2 infants and 2 toddlers) and had a great time. The villa facilities were great and views over the bay outstanding.

The town of Kalkan was very friendly and the walk down the hill relatively easy but a taxi back up the hill was needed for the children. The pool was great for a morning swim and a relaxing cool off after the days activities. The nearby Patara sandy beach is only a short car ride away and we would recommend buying the ticket for 10 adult entry fees as we used it on 3 occasions. This and visits to Fethyie and Kas markets made the car hire well worth it.

The owner was very helpful prior to the visit with advice and arrangements and the villa was spotless and well maintained. The restaurant recommendations proved to be spot on and worth trying and the fish restaurant on the road to Kas, just after Kaputas beach provided an excellent lunch if you like Calamari and fresh fish (the only things on the menu).

We would definitely recommend this villa to anyone who wants a great relaxing holiday.

Villa Simzer

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time in Kalkan and it never disappoints. The villa is extremely comfortable and homely. An added bonus is that the pool is beautiful and warm, we stayed in a beautiful villa last year but the pool was so cold we couldn't use it. The owner of the villa has been really helpful with any query we had and it was a real bonus to be able to hire her car. Thank you for a wonderful holiday, we hope to return next year.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5


Villa Simza has everything you need from children's pool toys, beach toys, diving flippers, books and games.

You walk in and there is suncream, tea, coffee, washing powders, shampoo, conditioner and even a water dispenser.

We hired the car and felt so at home from the moment we stepped through the door.

Thank you Lyn for a truly remarkable experience.

We will be back!

A piece of heaven......

  • 5 of 5

We returned to Kalkan in August this year having spent seven days there in 2013. This time round we chose to go for ten days and the holiday was idyllic.

There can't be a villa that has better viewes; the villa is incredibly homely; the BBQ area is perfect for the evenings with a small or big group (we comfortably cooked for ten of us); the infinity pool is wonderfully refreshing both in terms of the water temperature and mesmerising views; and the option to hire the car was a real plus.

We spent our days going to the local food markets (fresh fish is so tasty); spending time on Kapitus beach (5 minute drive); a day trip to one of Europe's deepest gorges (Saklikent Gorge) which has the most refreshing cool water; a day trip on Moby Dick; and wonderful evenings dining in Kalkan centre.

I can't recommend Kalkan and specifically this villa highly enough.

Amazing break in Villa Simzer!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week in Villa Simzer in early September, soaking up some late summer sun in this relaxing place! There is no better view to start your day in Kalkan and we enjoyed some early morning swims and breakfast on the balcony. We enjoyed the nearby markets, a boat trip and the infamous Saklikent Gorge, ending the days with some lovely BBQs on the patio area and a few games of pool and drinks down in 'Club Simzer'! We couldn't recommend staying in Simzer highly enough!

Wonderful week in Kalkan

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week long holiday in July 2013 at this lovely villa in the stunning town of Kalkan. On a trip with 8 friends we all had a fantastic time, and spent the majority of our time enjoying this wonderful villa. It slept and entertained our whole group with ease, the amazing infinity pool and surrounding patio were a welcome place to cool down and relax while taking in the breathtaking view that pictures cannot do justice. The BBQ area was perfect for many long evenings enjoying the wonderful cuisine from the local markets on the bbq and a spot with ample space for us all to enjoy each other's company and the beautiful surroundings. I honestly couldn't have asked for anything more from the villa.

The town itself has loads of lovely restaurants, bars and shops, along with very accomodating locals and a fantastic harbour area. We took a boat trip out into the bay (Moby Dick tours I believe) which was a great day out and I thoroughly recommend a day out on the water.

All in all we had a great trip which was made by this beautifully decorated, ideally located and very well equipped villa. I really would recommend everyone to visit this fantastic spot and hope to be back out to visit again as soon as I can.

From the Owner

Location, location, location! I have searched for years to find the perfect spot where I can enjoy stunning sea views, ozone breezes, home comforts,space both inside and out,a warm pool,sun and shade to suit my fancy,privacy to avoid tan lines,good markets,traditional restaurants,people who enjoy a smile and reciprocate with genuine passion and above all somewhere I can avoid the "Great British People" on their holidays. Thought was always given to the needs of my children who enjoy a "good" evening out,a stimulating game in and only the best beaches. Simzer was chosen to reflect the desires of all ages whether young,old or a good mixed crowd.Simzer has been thoroughly "vetted" and declared perfect! by each of my "little" darlings in turn. It is a good feeling to get it all right at last!

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Dalaman at 70 Miles Nearest Barpub : Kalkan town at 300 Metres Nearest Restaurant : Kalkan town at 300 Metres Nearest Beach : Kalkan Bay at 500 Metres

Special interest holidays:

I am able to provide both cookery courses and a personal chef service but I would advise any guests to contact me in order that my management service can advise over local possibilities.

I also have a Toyota Rav 4 vehicle which is gas and petrol run with child and baby safety equipment for all ages. It is available to guests during their stay at Simzer by prior arrangement. I am extremely safety concious which is why I keep a strong car attached to Simzer as I can not bear the uncomfortable alternative of the "tin pot" hire cars available.


The Hotel Mediterani is two minutes walk away.There is a pretty beach in Kalkan old town and one is able to stroll there in 20 minutes as it is all down hill. However, it is all up on the way back so unless you are built like a mountain goat, don't do it - certainly not in the heat. Patara beach is safe, dreamy, has golden sand, rated one of the best in the Med, stretches for miles, is a 20 minute drive past Roman relics and Turtle sites. There is also a small attractive cove a short 5 min drive away which is good for a quick swim or picnic.


Dalaman is the nearest airport and takes 1.5 hours. transfers are readily arranged and paid for through the local management. I would recommend car hire but it is not essential as there are plenty of local taxis available day and night.I keep a strong Toyota Rav 4, deluxe automatic, gas run car as I find hire cars dangerously flimsy,inadequate for some road access and petrol is astronomically expensive. It is available for guests to hire at a local level through my management team.


Hotel Mediterani is a 2 min stroll. Kalkan is a 10 minute walk all downhill and offers a great range of shops. There is a weekly market selling local produce as well as touristy bits and pieces.

Kas is a pretty town 20 min drive along the coast with a larger market and wider range of shops. Fetiye is an hours drive but well worth a visit with a huge market, harbour, sea front promenade, food both fast and slow and a full range of shops for every need and taste. Give it a go - Tuesday's are a particularly good day to go.

Further Details:

I have opted for the most extensive management package available to safeguard both Simzer and her guests. My driver is available for short trips. Should any guest have a concern or query however small they can feel secure in the knowledge that it will be addressed promptly and with good grace. The first recourse will be to the management team whose numbers are listed on Simzer's home phone and also on my Turkish mobile which is held locally and will be available by prior arrangement. The staff (maid, pool man, gardener and supervisor) are all known by me personally and are all completely trustworthy, friendly and eager to please. The supervisor speaks good English whereas the rest of the staff have a limited vocabulary and understanding. I have experienced no problems with valuable items but there is a safe within the property should anyone wish to use it. Villa Simzer is the culmination of many years filled with hopes and dreams. My family and I have worked hard to think of all things for all ages to make the perfect dream holiday come true. Having raised five children, I realise the importance of amusement both as a family and individually so that hard working parents do not end up with a "bus man's holiday" or worry about their little darlings being bored or frying in the midday sun. The cool of the underground games room for parents and children alike is a refreshing after lunch sanctuary. For evenings in, the Wii Rock Band will have everyone in hysterics and for quieter family moments the board games and DVD's are plentiful. I have dressed Simzer as brightly as one is able, as I have suffered many bland, uncomfortable villas over the years. Simzer is already the talk of Kalkan and is named for a very precious local lady whose love and generosity (along with that of her family) led me to want to spend more and more time in Kalkan. There are many wonderful local restaurants who will give you very special treatment if you just mention her name....Simzer!

Fees No additional mandatory fees

Booking Notes:
A non returnable deposit is required for booking confirmation with the full amount to be paid 8 weeks before the agreed date. July and August will always be payable at the fixed rate. We have started to "enjoy" return visits from small family groups who very much appreciate their children being well occupied with some learning to swim from the Roman Steps leading into the pool which can be heated when required. I endeavour to deal with enquiries in the order I receive them in whenever possible!

Changeover Day:
We are flexible but have begun to book with a Saturday change over. I also prefer my guests to liase with my staff when it comes to cleaning and vacating Simzer rather than having a strict "throwing out" time as there is nothing worse than inflexibility!

Notes on prices:
I will be staying with Simzer whenever she is free but she will welcome discerning guests all year round as Simzer has the option of a heated pool, rugs, blankets, heaters etc. Prices are rarely varied as Simzer now has a good "following" which includes small family groups from the UK and Turkish media who appreciate the comforts and privacy afforded. I operate a "home from home", full cupboards policy with everyone using and replacing. Thus far this "policy" has worked extremely well indeed.

From the Owner

Apart from the stunning views through the windows,you will also find "interest" around every corner at Simzer as she is "decked out" in with all sorts of fascinating objects both new and very old. I am fully "kitted out" for "partying" with cupboards stuffed full of crockery/glasses, all basic food items,etc.There are enough chairs to seat the neighbourhood and sufficient games to amuse twenty people of varying ages,i.e:-cot rattles/mobiles, Thomas Duplo "by the crate",a large "rocking" car,Wii Sport with balance board,Rock Band,ten other of the latest Wii games,numerous board games,billiards/pool,table tennis,etc. There are dozens of towels for all uses and a very "cool" cool box! Unlimited Broadband for business use,a local phone and Turkish Mobile Pool Heater, Everything I think!

  • Notes on accommodation: I hope I have covered all age groups for holiday fun and games with a huge collection of Thomas Duplo,Wii games galore, including The Beatles limited edition full rock band with drums, guitar and microphone. A library of CDs, DVDs, books and many board games,satellite TV, cot, stair gate, baby monitor, mosquito nett,car seat and bumper, toys,massive cool box,picnic gear,beach lounger pads and umbrella. I fought my way through customs with everything including the games tables which I was told was a near impossibility. I even imported smoke detectors. There is Bosch air-conditioning and a multitude of interesting objects including a rare designer (His Masters Voice) chandelier from Liberty of London and art frames from John Jones, framers for Damian Hurst. Also, antiques from the UK and Turkey and a 5ton red rock c/o the local Mayor and a JCB driver who skillfully placed it in the garden which offers colour, scented Jasmine,fruiting Mulberry tree, and the most unusual genus of grass! Outside: Simzer has a private infinity pool of good size overlooking Kalkan Bay and Harbour with an integral child/baby pool and full length Roman steps across one end leading gradually down into the water. The BBQ and Ottoman seating area is a fabulous feature with a large marble topped table, ample seating and views over the bay and my olive groves. There are 10 sun loungers, side tables, large wooden arm chairs (including two on each balcony with natural walnut tables), all of which have thick matching cotton cushions. The garden has old urns, wheels, ox yolks, flowering climbersand tiny LED lights over the Barabie area, mulberry tree and sweet jasmine. I am a keen chef,design artist and gardener with many years experience and passion in all areas. Simzer was designed to afford areas of shade throughout the day with plenty of privacy and interest. I own the land on three sides of Simzer covered in silver olive trees through which stone steps miander down to the games room and lower garden Utility Room: Bosch washing machine, iron and board, pegs, large drying horse - all the usual gubbins. It is a room,not a cupboard and it is very easy to avoid if you are adverse to the sight of washing whilst on holiday but if you like pegging out the" horse" awaits! Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Ample top quality linen and towels including Christy beach towels, blue pool towels, white bath towels, the linen is all top quality 600 thread. I have a brilliant maid who calls twice a week or can be at your beck and call for all requirements. A marvel! Other: There is a large, cool basement games room with Riley Billiard table,Butterfly Table Tennis table, seating or sleeping area, music and toys. There is an Ottoman eating area with built in barbie, marble table and archway view over the bays and harbour.
