About the Owner

Thank you for looking at our property, we are Jon and Julie and live in Manchester. I am an IT Manager and Julie an HR Adviser.

When we are not busy working we enjoy eating out, nice wine and dreaming about another holiday!

Buying in Patara Prince was the best decision we ever made and we are always excited to return.

After the fantastic comments received about The Olive Garden we have purchased The Cactus Garden for the 2016 Season which is a fully refurbished one bedroom garden apartment. For those wanting to travel as a larger party we can offer a reduced rate on bookings for both properties allowing comfortable accommodation for six people.

Piece of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

The Olive Garden Villa is of a very high standard and exactly as described by Jon the owner - charming, in a perfect location and has everything that we look for in a relaxing holiday. Having been recently refurbished, we enjoyed the luxury of a modern bathroom and kitchen, very comfy bed and private WIFI access was an added bonus, rarely provided in other rental properties. The balcony enjoys privacy and a truly spectacular view over Kalkan bay. Club Patara is in a stunning location nestled in the hillside right on the sea front with private sea access. It is peace and tranquility but within a 15 - 20 minute walk to the beautiful old town with harbour and spoilt for choice rooftop terrace restaurants. The Turks in Kalkan are the most friendly and kind people. We discovered Kalklan in 2008 and have returned several times since, however our first time in this property. Jon was most helpful with our booking from the outset and ensured that everything was perfectly organised for our arrival and also provided a local contact in resort in the event of any problems. We would not hesitate to recommend the Olive Garden Villa and cannot wait to return. Our only negative is that a holiday there is just not long enough! Val & David

Dream villa with a view, great condition and superb value for money.

  • 5 of 5

The Olive Garden villa does just what it says on the box. The grandstand view across Kalkan bay is the stuff of holiday dreams, especially at night when you see the town's twinkling lights. Inside, the rooms are spacious and beautifully furnished. The beds are big and comfy and the kitchen and shower/toilet are modern. Every detail has been thought of - from novels for all ages and guidebooks, to candles in case of powercuts, loads of towels, and generous kitchenware. It's a fair trek down steep steps to the pools and beach club but a spot of exercise on holiday never goes amiss and the perfectly clean, sparkling blue water of the sea - with its marvellous cool patches of spring water from the mountains - are well worth the walk. The villa is very handy for hotel reception, which made ordering taxis into town easy. The taxis were a snip at £3 a time - but if you fancy the 20-minute walk into Kalkan, you are rewarded with views over the Old Town. In town, we had marvellous evening meals at the Sade, Baharat, Terra and Samphire rooftop restaurants. Simply sensational food and views. The coolest bar in town seems to be Botanik Garden, owned and run by Namek -- a twinkling wonderland of trees, hammocks and treehouses with the coolest bartenders in Kalkan and sensational jumbo cocktails and mocktails. The most talked-about day trip is to Kekova, where you can view the underwater and hillside ruins of an ancient city and swim with turtles. We also loved the one to Saklikent Gorge, where you can trek up the canyon but also try out rafting -- and a mudbath. Our villa owner, Jon Burton, was most efficient and helpful in his emails - but most welcoming of all was the ginger tabby cat who turned up daily at our door and became our friend. When we left for home, at 2.15am, she seemed to sense the moment and followed us down the steps to the bus.

This has to be the best holiday ever! The villa was modern, clean and had everything we needed for a fabulous stay. The view from the veranda was 'to die for'. We didn't fail to be mesmerised every morning drinking coffee on the veranda and admiring the view of the bay. Such a great location, despite the hilly setting. We were glad we were outside Kalkan, not because it was noisy but because the view was the best of all the possible locations for accommodation. We would recommend this location and villa to anyone. The facilities of Patara Prince were great - the kids preferred the infinity pool to the salt water pools but on many occasions we had the pool to ourselves - quite unusual in July. We will definitely be going back.

Just fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing place! Lovely apartment - very clean and tidy and everything you could possibly want including free WiFi!! The views from the terrace are fantastic and you can see right across the bay.

The apartment is ideally situated half way up the resort. It is therefore a short walk to the sea/pools or walk up to the car. 20 minutes walk into town, or you just pop into reception of the main hotel and they will order you a taxi - £3 maximum!

There are a lot of steps, but easily manageable for the average person but not so much for someone who has mobility issues.

Great customer service from the owner who was available via email to talk to before we left. We will book again next year - which will be our third year in a row!

A real home from home

  • 5 of 5

The Olive Garden had everything you need for a home from home stay. Its a little compact (in the living areas), but we didn't stay in much, so not a problem. The apartment is well situated to the main hotel reception and pool, but the 152 steps to and from the pool were difficult sometimes in the heat. We used the shuttle bus to the main reception, and then only had to climb the steps to the apartment. Overall both the apartment and resort was lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Excellent villa in and amazing location

  • 5 of 5

The Olive Garden is a fantastic Vila located in an amazing location. The villa is finished to a very high standard with all you will need. As a family with young children we had a fantastic time. There is plenty to do in the local area with great restaurants. We would definitely recommend the Olive Garden.

From the Owner

After returning from a holiday we saw The Olive Garden was available for sale and as soon as we saw the views from the terrace we knew we had to buy it! We had never visited Kalkan previously but fell in love with the town, its restaurants and its people. We decided to purchase in Patara Prince as the property offered everything we required; uninterrupted sea views, onsite bars and restaurants, its own water and electricity supply, 24 hour security and direct sea access from the bathing platforms... not to mention the four swimming pools! We also appreciated the peace and tranquillity of the resort and the beautiful gardens and architecture, better still Kalkan centre is only a short taxi ride or a 20 minute walk away. After the lovely feedback we received about The Olive Garden we decided to purchase another property, The Cactus Garden, a one bedroom ground floor apartment at the top of the resort allowing friends and family to visit whilst offering private accommodation. Fully refurbished for the 2016 season we hope you also enjoy the property.

Kalkan town does have a beach which is a 15 minute walk away or can be reached by the boat that leaves the resort. Further out there is the beautiful Kaputus beach (10 mins by car) or the stunning 18km long Patara beach (20 mins by car).


Kalkan is easily accessible thanks to its two major airports. Dalaman Airport is the closest airport to Kalkan with a transfer time of about 1.5 hours. Antalya Airport is a 3 hour transfer.

Every Thursday there is a local market selling fruit, veg, spices clothes and gifts. It is a unique and enjoyable experience not to missed. Cheaper than Asda!

Bars and restaurants

There are two restaurants that are open in the Patara Prince resort in high season (one in low season) but for more choice a visit to Kalkan town is a must. There a number of bars in Kalkan ranging from chilled out relaxing bars to enjoy a cocktail, or more livelier bars to dance the night away. There is also a huge choice of restaurants, over 100! These consist of roof top restaurants with views to the sea and mountains,quaint back street restaurants or the stunning harbour side restaurants. The standard of food is very high but there is a number of different cuisines to suit every taste and budget !If you like good food Kalkan is an ideal choice.

There are a number of tour operators in the town and Kalkan also has a regular Dolmus (bus) service to sites and beaches.
