Villa in Kalamar Bay, Kalkan, Mediterranean Region, Turkey - Peaceful Location Overlooking Kalamar Bay, 5 Mins Walk to Sea, Beach Clubs and Local Shop

Date Palm offers luxurious, spacious and varied accommodation, the four amply sized double bedrooms all offer en-suite accommodation, the living areas are comfortably furnished in a simple, uncluttered and stylish way, with the shaded and furnished patio areas and roof terrace adding extra living space for members of a larger party seeking a quiet corner. The villa is very child friendly , the marble staircase is gated to the bottom and top. There are also pool railings that can be erected to section off the pool for those with younger children seeking a safe and stress free environment. The roof terrace offers a fantastic sea view and is the perfect place to finish off the day or start the evening with a pre-dinner drink and a guaranteed glorious sunset.

The proximity of the villa to the sea couldn't be more perfect for those looking for a change from lazing around the pool.

Lovely holiday so far

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at 3pm, were greeted by friendly pool man who allowed us access to villa. The beds are very comfy and the a/c is quiet which helps for an U disturbed nights sleeps. Sally is very helpful for all pre holiday enquiries and being a group of 10 ( 2 families and me an ex travel agent, believe me there were lots of silly questions).

The villa itself is very clean and there are plenty of plates, cups, cutlery etc which is of great help with a large party. The bbq is amazing and plenty big enough to cook for a large party. My teenagers loved the privacy of the loft room, we didn't use the roof terrace much because we gave them space but it is lovely up there. The pool area has lots of shade which ended up being a saving grace as our youngest guest was six and it meant they could happily swim all day in the pool without too much sun. In August the sun came to the pool around 9am but was shaded by 4pm but believe me there is always somewhere to find the sun but the shade is a godsend ( even for us avid sun worshippers!)

The villa itself is situated along the kalamar road, for those of you who know Kalkan it's not far from the yelken. It's down a very steep hill which means there is a few minutes walk up this steep hill to get into town but with 6 children we managed it several times. It took around 25 mins to get into the centre. The nearest restaurant is less than a 5 min walk but one of our favourites was cafe vita which was about 5 mins walk, there is also a shop here and another one just another minute or so past there. There are quite a few bars and restaurants within an easy 10 min walk but plenty more ( too many to mention) in the centre.

A taxi for 6 cost us 15 lira which was about £3.50 at our rate of exchange. The most we paid for a meal with 3 steaks was 630 lira which was around £140 for 10 people including wine and several beers and soft drinks. Not had a bad meal the entire time. My 5th visit to Kalkan and I just love it, my first time though to the beach parks. Kalamar beach park is adequate and 12 lira per person inc sunbeds parasols and canoes, pedaloes and trampolines but personally our favourite was the Kalkan beach park, prettier and free entrance all you need to pay is 5 lira per adult ( children free) return on the water taxi but you get that refunded from your bill. Again free canoes and a water slide, really is a lovely day and the sea turtles an added bonus plus easier access to sea.

Excellent Villa for family stay - SECOND visit.

  • 5 of 5

Originally stayed at Date Palm Villa in 2012 and had the perfect holiday with wife, daughters (x3) & in-laws, the time had now come for a re-visit.

The villa again did not fail to impress, now with an added sun terrace !!!

The team looking after the villa were excellent with daily visits to maintain the pool and garden areas. Bedding / Towels changed once a week with a complete top to bottom cleaning of the entire villa.

Location is a 20 minute walk / 5 minute taxi ride from Kalkan town centre. As with all Kalkan and Kalamar Bay there are hills to be climbed which certainly help to walk of some of the many excellent meals out.

We experienced an 18 hour delay in getting out to the villa due to issues with our flight operator which spoiled our arrival and lost us a day at the villa :( however the owner of this villa ensured that our transfers and arrival at the villa went as smooth as possible when we eventually got into Dalaman airport, relieving some of the stress caused by the flight !!!!

Places to eat - over 300 restaurants within Kalamar Bay and Kalkan, some to recommend :

- Cafe Vita (Kalamar Bay) - 5 minute walk - Wednesday evening BBQ night (pre-book a table as very popular), also good for takeaways after a hectic day at beach / boat trip.

- Zeytin Restaurant (Ekinhan Hotel) - 5 minute walk - Restaurant within one of the few hotels in / around Kalamar Bay - cater for any taste and really put themselves out to ensure you enjoy your meal.

- Sunset (Kalkan) - made 2 visits this year (also enjoyed 3 years ago), both visits proving excellent food and service with great range of traditional Turkish offerings - excellent home made lemonade !!!!.

- Wapiano (Kalkan) - no previous experience, however service and food was so good we ate there twice on this visit, along with 2 or 3 stop off's on an evening to enjoy cocktails.

- Salt and Pepper (Kalkan) - previously visited in 2012 and again this year - excellent menu and quality food - worth a look.

- Zeki's La Terrazza (Kalkan) - Again re-visited from 3 years ago and not disappointed.

+ many many more.

Kalkan restaurants approx 25 minute walk OR 5 minute taxi + 5 minute walk.

Overall the owner, maintenance team, property, location could not be better - I would certainly recommend staying at this villa - an excellent family orientated property and team / service.

We're now looking at arranging a third stay for next year.

Perfect Family Holiday Villa

  • 5 of 5

Our family group consisted of 7 adults and two young children and we spent a wonderful 10 days at Date Palm Villa. Prior to our trip, the owner was super helpful and responsive to our requests for general information and in ensuring our overall comfort, including making adjustments to accommodate the children. The owner's local agent and maintenance team were very friendly, helpful, efficient & discreet. We all found the villa comfortable, immaculate and very well equipped, with lots of attention to detail. The pool, which was maintained daily, was a life-saver in the September heat! We have no hesitation in recommending Date Palm Villa to others.

Villa Date Palm

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous holiday. The owner made all the arrangements for our smooth transfers and overall comfort at the villa. We were very impressed with the welcome, efficient service and kind attention we received from the owner's agent and maintenance team. The special touches made us feel at home straight away - the starter pack in the fridge most welcome, little details such as adaptors , candles, tea lights etc.

Villa Date Palm was everything we had hoped for, comfortable, immaculate and in a great location, not forgetting to mention the washing line with the best view in the world. The pool area was very well maintained in a pleasingly discreet way which was much appreciated as was the mid stay clean and towel/sheet change.

Everyone agreed that it was their best holiday for a long time and we hope to have the opportunity to visit Date Palm and Kalkan again in the near future.

Perfect villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa was everything we hoped for and more. Beautiful setting with amazing views of the bay from the Rooftop terrace and bedroom balconies. The villa was spacious, spotless and the pool cleaned daily. The owners provided good pre-holiday advice (transfers, changing currency, facilities etc) and all transactions between us and the owners were smooth. Free beach very nearby and low cost beach with great facilities 10 minutes away. Perfect for children and teenagers as plenty of watersports (many free), adult only would also be good as the old town of Kalkan is filled with bars and restaurants with roof top terraces over the bay. Food was great everywhere - we tried at least 6 different restaurants (including the most local to the villa) and had wonderful food at all of them. Wouldn't particularly recommend it for anyone with mobility problems unless you hire a car, the villa is on a steep hill (which allows it the magnificent views)- although we did order a taxi almost everywhere - the journey into town only took 5 minutes and cost about £5 for 6 of us.

All in all a wonderful relaxing holiday and definitely one we would come back to.
