About the property

Villa in Kalkan, Mediterranean Region, Turkey - Ideal Spot Within A 10 Min Walk To The Loacal Beach Club And 15 Minutes To The Village Of Kalkan

Villa Turquoise is a privately owned, beautiful architect designed house in an exclusive development perched on the hillside with stunning panoramas over the turquoise waters of Kalamar Bay, the islands beyond and the glorious Lycian coast. The cool contemporary design harmonises beautifully with the natural surroundings and makes the most of an elevated situation overlooking the bay. The villa is laid out over three floors, with the ground floor sitting room opening onto a terrace which overlooks the swimming pool and provides breathtaking views across the bay of Kalamar to Mouse and Snake Islands. This terrace then leads round to the tranquil and attractive gardens behind the villa. The villa is surrounded by an abundance of colourful and fragrant plants, with areas of shade to escape from the midday sun. Beyond the pool is a pergola providing shade for the perfect al fresco dining area, complete with a stone built BBQ for entertaining at home.

There are plenty of sun beds and parasols around the pool as well as a hammock and comfy seating areas to recline in the shade. For the energetic there is a table tennis table!

The interior is exceptionally spacious and is beautifully designed and furnished with a sense of calm and sophistication.

Kalamar Bay is a peaceful, picturesque village, just around the corner from Kalkan and a 5 minute walk from the villa to the sea and the popular Kalamar Beach Club. A pleasant 15 minute downhill walk takes you to the quaint and unique village of Kalkan. The pretty town descends to the sea in a maze of cobbled streets and whitewashed house. This once sleepy fishing village now has an air of sophistication about it with an abundance of interesting shops, restaurants, bars and cafés. These all come to life as the sun goes down and the town buzzes with activity as visitors and locals alike enjoy the magical Kalkan nightlife.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any enquiries you may have, we would be delighted to help you plan your holiday.

Lindsey Tyler purchased this villa in 2007

Why Lindsey Tyler chose Kalkan

We had had many a happy holiday in Kalkan before we decided that this was the perfect place to buy a holiday home.

We had looked long and hard at all the areas of Kalkan and at many villas before we came across Villa Turquoise.

The villa was being built as a show villa on a small exclusive development and was situated in a fabulous spot with amazing views over Kalkamar Bay, just a short walk to the sea and a peaceful backdrop of olive groves and lazy goats!

We could see the villas potential and snapped it up before it was marketed. It was one of the best things we ever did.

What makes this villa unique

A place for rest and relaxation, fun and parties, friends and family.

A place where you can do as little or as much as you like.

This is our happy place!

Guestbook comments from the owner


That's all we heard ourselves say all week. We have fallen in love with Kalkan and Villa Turquoise. We will be back!!

Caroline, Joseph and John.

"Beautifully appointed, comprehensively furnished and equipped in excellent taste"

"Superb location with absolutely stunning views"

"Gorgeous pool terrace on which to relax with a cool beer"

"Quiet and peaceful location but in easy reach of Kalkan's excellent restaurants and shops"

The Cartwright's, Beckenham.

Thank you so much for helping to make our holiday absolutely perfect. The villa is gorgeous and exquisitely furnished. After many busy months at work, we really appreciated the privacy and the tranquillity it provided us offering the ideal opportunity to relax and recharge our batteries. The pool terrace is fabulously spacious and we enjoyed cooking on the BBQ and dining overlooking the islands. Even now we miss the spectacular views and scenery that surround the villa.

We found Kalkan to be an enchanting town and the people were all so welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed exploring the cobbled alleys and dining in the superb restaurants – although there are so many to choose from!

The airport transfers provided by Enes were friendly, reliable and comfortable. We would also like to thank the maintenance team who provide an excellent service maintaining the property. What a delightful team of people!

Thank you once again especially for all of the little extras. The 'Welcome Pack' was very welcome! And your help arranging our transfers and answers to my never ending questions was invaluable. We will definitely be returning to Kalkan in the near future.

Thank you so much.

Best wishes,

Alison & Graeme. (Hampshire)

A memorable holiday in a marvellous villa

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Villa Turquoise. This was our second visit and timed to coincide with special family birthday celebrations. We greatly appreciated the help from Lindsey and Amy in organising the efficient transfers and providing much assistance and local knowledge concerning restaurants and activities.

The villa itself is quite wonderful. It is bright, airy, spotlessly clean and thoughtfully equipped and decorated. We made good use of the Nespresso machine which had been added to the kitchen. Iced coffees by the pool were very popular. The terrace and gardens were looking superb with the vivid bougainvillea, plumbago and hibiscus in full bloom which enhanced the spectacular views of the bay. The roof terrace is great at night for a relaxing drink and, with the clear skies, we enjoyed a little stargazing. The local maintenance team clearly keep the property in good order and were very prompt to respond on one occasion when we needed assistance.

It is very useful to shop for essentials and have the option of restaurants close to the villa. In the evenings, though, we liked the atmosphere in the main centre and harbourside of Kalkan village where there is the general buzz of activity from interesting shops, bars and many excellent restaurants. Taxis are very promptly available if needed, inexpensive, and there were plenty that were able to take six people, which suited our group. During the week, in addition to much poolside enjoyment at the villa, we took a lovely sunset boat cruise with an excellent BBQ. A visit to Saklikent Gorge for river rafting/tubing proved to be an exhilarating experience and great fun.

All in all this was a fun and memorable holiday in a marvellous villa. We hope to be able to return.

Outstanding Kalkan villa with incredible views

  • 5 of 5

Villa Turquoise is the most beautiful place for a holiday in Kalkan. Views over Kalamar Bay are sublime and there is so much outside space to enjoy - at least 5 different seating areas - and yet it doesn't feel as overwhelmingly big as some of Kalkan's other properties. It's very well equipped and a huge amount of thought has gone into making a stay there as relaxing as possible - the provision of a pay as you go mobile so calling taxis and booking restaurants can be done without damaging your own phone bill, for example.They also have the comfiest bed I've ever slept in! We have visited Kalkan before and cannot recommend it highly enough as a holiday destination. The beach clubs are a great way to spend a day, all offering water sports, and in the evening there are so many great restaurants to chose from. Villa Turquoise is a true find though - the pictures really sum it up... you will not be disappointed.

Amazing holiday at a stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

Lindsey was amazing from the first contact to arranging the transfers to the villa. Any questions about the villa and Kalkan were answered quickly. We meet Ali the manager on the first day and as we only had to contact him via whats ap on the day we were leaving just to confirm the transfer. He has an office in town and he is very easy to get hold of by phone.

When arriving at the villa it was even better than the photo's. There were so many seating areas outside to sit and chill or sunbathe.

The favourite place to read was under the pergola. You get 360 panoramic views on the roof terrace and my son loved to sit and watch from up there.

The property was the cleanest villa we have ever stayed in and we had two cleans during our stay with fresh towels and linen. The property is stocked with everything you could want and the decor was amazing.

We have been to Kalkan twice before staying in different villas, this villa has the best location and was so close to be able to walk to do a daily shop, you can walk to Kalamar Beach club (well worth a trip or two) and a nice walk into the town.

Also this is the first time the wifi in Kalkan has worked in a villa in the bedrooms (which is a must for 12,13 and two 19 year olds), it was fantastic to have no moaning about the wifi.

I would recommend this villa to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday but being close enough to everything Kalkan has to offer. We did the water sports at Kalamar Beach club and hired out their jet skis, which my 12 and 13 year old children really enjoyed. We also hired a boat which is the best day out, as the food abroad was stunning as were the bays we stopped at.

Everything about this years holiday was brilliant and thank you Lindsey and family for allowing us to stay at your beautiful villa.

Owner's Response: Hi Jane, What a great review, thank you so much. It sounds as though you all had a great time exploring Kalkan and its surroundings, but as you say there is so much on the doorstep that you don't ever have to wander far. We have been going to Kalkan for 14 years now and there is till so much we haven't done. If you need advice for your next trip as to where to go and what to see let me know. There are a few things off the tourist map that are really special (and a secret!) Your kids are great ages for Kalkan, we have always found that there is something to occupy them whatever their age and Kalkan feels so safe that we have probably given our kids more freedom there than we would have in other places. I hope that we can help you again in the future. Enjoy the rest of the summer. Very best wishes, Lindsey

Stunning Villa in superb location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday at Villa Turquoise. Lindsey was extremely helpful, arranging our transfers to and from the airport and providing a welcome pack for our arrival. The Villa was equipped to a very high standard and furnished beautifully. The maintenance team keep it spotlessly clean - we were provided with fresh towels and bed linen regularly throughout our stay. The villa is in an excellent location and the views across Kalamar Bay are stunning. There are plenty of places to eat both in Kalamar Bay and Kalkan which is a short walk from the Villa - taxis are plentiful and very cheap if you prefer not to walk. We ate out regularly and the food and service was second to none. We enjoyed a boat trip around the local bays and went canoeing along the Xanthos river. We also enjoyed trips to Fethiye and Kas - both of which are easily accesible on public transport. It was our first visit to Turkey and we have fallen in love with the country and the people - we can't wait to return.

Simply Brilliant

  • 5 of 5

We have been holidaying in Villa's as a family for many years all over the world and without doubt Villa Turquoise is magnificent. The best we have ever stayed in! From our initial booking Lindsey (the owner) was helpful in the extreme providing useful details and assistance. Upon arrival the Villa was immaculately clean, very well equipped and was as beautiful in reality as the pictures suggest. During our stay, we were looked after by the Korsan team who were equally outstanding providing prompt and efficient service from cleaning to daily bread and water deliveries., nothing was too much trouble. For those who have not been to Kalkan, it is stunning and full of great restaurants with lots of great local trips and days out making it a brilliant place to stay. Add the Villa Turquoise, Lindsey and her Korsan team and you have all you need for an outstanding, never to be forgotten holiday. As for Turkey, do not stay away, the people are lovely and friendly - it is safe!

Often in life it seems things are frequently not quite as advertised, but for the Villa Turquoise you have no worries, it is simply brilliant. Thank you Lindsey for lending us your beautiful Villa for the best holiday ever – we will be back!”

Villa Turquoise, Kalkan, Turkey - perfection

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Villa Turquoise, we first went in July 2012 and we had been longing to revisit as we'd had such a fabulous time the first time.

The owner, Lindsey Tyler, is friendly, helpful and efficient in all her correspondence and communications which gives the visitor great confidence even before you get to Villa Turquoise!

The listing descriptions and images are accurate and indeed we thought it looked lovely but both times have been even more delighted when we've actually arrived there.

The property is very well maintained, clean and has everything you could possibly need if you want to just relax or even if you want to cook for yourselves everyday. The team who look after the villa are friendly and discreet as they come in and remove the recycling and any rubbish on a daily basis (if you choose) and Ozay, is a fabulous help if you need anything organised such as meals delivered, boats or trips booked or just any general advice and help you might need.

Re transfers - we have always used Emin at Enes Cars for very efficient pick-ups and returns to Dalaman airport, always there on time with curteous drivers and bottles of water for the two hour journey to and from the airport.

We've actually been to Kalkan four times now, twice at Villa Turquoise and twice in a hotel so we know the town quite well. My favourite restaurants are The Olive Garden (best food and best terrace with wafty lime green coloured sails to give a breeze), Salt'n Pepper down on the waterfront and The Old Trading House with another great terrace.

We also highly recommend hiriing one of the boats for the day, just for you and your family and enjoy that wonderful feeling of leaping off the side of it into the turquoise blue ocean and then being served a fantastic Turkish lunch, more food than you'll need, that's for sure.

We know that Turkey is struggling at the moment but we highly recommend Villa Turquoise and the lovely town of Kalkan where the Turkish people are so welcoming and friendly and very much love having British visitors to share their home with.

I know that the locals are especially delighted and appreciative of visitors to Kalkan in spite of the current troubles in Turkey. We hope that we can accommodate you again in the future. With thanks and very best wishes, Lindsey

The nearest airport is Dalaman which is approximately an hour and forty minutes by road. Antalya is a 3 hour drive.

We are happy to arrange your transfers to and from Villa Turquoise or to arrange car hire and directions if you prefer to drive yourselves.


The centre of Kalkan is approximately a 15 minute walk or 5 minutes away if travelling by car or taxi. A 15 minute drive will take you to either Patara or Kaputas Beach. Fethiye the closest large town is approximately an hour away by car or bus, and the lovely small harbour town of Kas is a picturesque 25 minutes away.

This area of Turkey is full of archaeological sites and places of outstanding beauty all within easy reach of Kalkan.

The Lycian Way is a 509km marked footpath around the coast of Lycia, from Fethiye to Antalya. It is a coastal walk and mild temperatures mean it can be walked throughout the winter months.

There is no better way to experience the truly amazing coastline than aboard a traditionally built gulet. This lazy cruise will take you to local bays where you can swim from the boat, snorkel and go ashore to take a traditional mud bath. Lunch and afternoon tea are usually included in the price. Romantic evening dinner cruises are also available. Just stroll along the harbour at Kalkan to select the boat of your choice.

Indulge yourself in a steam and soap filled experience to remember with a Hammam (Turkish bath). An extraordinary relaxing bathing experience that will leave you feeling de-stressed and revitalised. A great way to start your holiday!

So much to do, so little time!
