Villa Kavuk, Villa Kaftan and Villa Kusak are a set of three identical adjacent villas, together referred to as the Ottoman Residences. Each three bedroom villa has its own private pool and terrace area with established gardens. The villas have been sensitively built so that each villa does not obstruct the view of the other and all have stunning views of Kalkan and the islands from every terrace. Beautifully furnished we have tried to accommodate our guests every need. The interiors are modern, airy and light as well as fully air conditioned throughout. All the villas have free wifi access and Digiturk TV. Each villa can be booked individually, as a pair or indeed as a trio making them the perfect choice for family and friends to holiday together or celebrate special occasions.
We first visited Kalkan in 2006 and our love affair with the town and its people began on that very first trip. We bought our first villa during that first trip and have been back many times each year since then. Last year we decided to make a further investment in the town we love so much and when we found these three villas, together “The Ottoman Residences” we just couldn’t resist them. During the first half of 2013 we have spent time bringing them up to the standard we think people expect when they rent a luxury villa. Our aim was to create a setting similar to what you would have if you stayed in a luxury hotel, the only difference being that you have your own private pool and a very well equipped kitchen.
Elena Aslan purchased this villa in 2013
We are delighted that our children (ages 21 & 23) love Kalkan as much as we do. They have been visiting for 7 years and now have as many friends in Kalkan as they do in the UK. You won’t find lots of nightclubs in Kalkan but there are enough bars with music and dancing to keep them happy and more importantly an environment in which they feel safe.
A non refundable deposit of 20% of the villa price is payable to secure a booking. Payment of the final balance is required 8 weeks prior to departure. A £150 ‘breakage/damage’ deposit is also payable with the final balance. This is refundable in total or part thereof, within two weeks of your departure, subject to confirmation from our management company that the villa has been left in good order with no significant damages/breakages to the villa or contents.
The preferred changeover day is Friday, particularly during the high season. The villa will be available from 4 pm on the day of arrival and should be vacated by 10 am on the day of departure. Flexibility can be allowed subject to availability.
We (2 adults and 4 children aged 9, 11, 13 and 14) stayed for two fabulous weeks with another familiy who stayed in Villa Kusak below. The listing description does not do the Villa justice. It is without doubt the cleanest and best equipped Villa in which we have stayed. The local management company, Lycian, were most efficient without being too intrusive. We had a least two visits a day to look after the beautifully landscaped gardens and the pool and to ensure that everything was to our liking. In addition, the Villa was cleaned top to bottom four times during our stay. The supply of 6 beach towels was particularly welcome and the kids thought that the free WiFI and the Disney Channel were manna from heaven! The views from every room are spectacular and we will especially miss our al fresco breakfasts and lunches overlooking Kalkan Bay. The Owners have been most helpful from the minute we booked and our deposit was returned the day after we got back.
We hired a car for our stay but it is not essential. It is an easy 15 minute stroll down the hill into the town although we would suggest a taxi ride back!
A day on a boat out in Kalkan Bay is a must and visit to the Salikent Gorge is recommended. If you want beaches then Patara and Kaputas beaches are easily reached by car or taxi. However, it does take a lot to drag you away from the Villa!!
In short a memorable two weeks. Kalkan and Villa Kaftan make for the perfect holiday.
