A classy villa right on the Mediterranean? 

That’s Water’s Edge, with only sea bathing platforms and large pools  between it and the sea.  This airy and spacious 3-bed villa is set  in prime position just above the water in a garden oasis of oleander, palm and olive trees at prestigious Club Patara/Patara Prince Resort.   It is a “one-off” in the resort, unlike any other, and made special not only for its unique position with uninterrupted sea views across the bay and out to sea from all rooms but also for the luxurious garden suite we created a few years ago, matching the quality in the rest of the villa.  It is the perfect romantic setting in which to relax and unwind.  A few paces through the lush garden take you immediately to the large pools – plenty of scope for serious swimming - and sea bathing from platforms over the rocks.   The water is blue-flagged for quality and a gloriously tempting pellucid azure.   The resort hotel, restaurants and bars are only a few steps further.  Our guests can take advantage of a 25% discount in the resort’s restaurants and bars.  The right choice for an especially magical experience, this air-conditioned villa has it all.

The villa sleeps 7 in 3 bedrooms including the garden suite, but it is possible to rent just the 2-bed villa outside July/August (please ask us for rates for this.) The garden suite is not available independently.

Resort features

Club Patara/Patara Prince Resort is one of Kalkan’s best addresses, where terracotta houses with pantile roofs  are set in beautifully-kept gardens running down to the sea.  This exclusive gated complex with 24-hour security, adjacent to Villa Mahal,  was designed by the distinguished Turkish architect, Turhan Kaso.  Two seafront swimming pools and sea-bathing from platforms over the rocks are all a stone’s throw away, directly below Water’s Edge, and  there is another pool at the top of the resort as well as one in the health centre; two tennis courts (one floodlit); restaurants, bars, a boutique hotel, shop and other amenities. Watersports are available. Cars are not allowed in the resort apart from loading and unloading baggage but there is a free shuttle mini-bus to take you through the resort as well as a water taxi over to Kalkan harbour. Club Patara is only a few minutes' boat or taxi ride from Kalkan harbour and village or a pleasant twenty minute walk in along a quiet side road.  Our guests can take advantage of a 25% discount in the resort’s restaurants and bars.

  • It was a fabulous trip as always, the villa was super and that view, it's just spectacular! We can't wait to return in September, it's definitely our second home! It was our 5th time in kalkan and 4th time at your villa, I think that says it all!

  • We arrived back home yesterday from a fantastic holiday, fully rested from our stay in your beautiful villa. Our purpose for travelling to Kalkan was a friend’s wedding, some of our friends came over to our resort and all fell in love with your villa. The Garden room was amazing waking up every morning to the fantastic view across the bay
