  • In short we had a terrific family stay and Felicity was great and helpful. The days went off without a hitch, immaculate rooms and well equipped kitchen, fantastic pool, great vicinity to supermarkets and restaurants. Felicity's ownership of making sure we had a great day was a real credit, turning up to check unnecessary but very much appreciated! Thank you very much for everything and look forward to staying at your villa again.

  • This was a new part of town for us with a different style of villa too. An excellent choice which was ideal for us. Internal space, furnishings and facilities relaxing, cool and welcoming. Outside is a real treat with lots of space and furniture for those who love the sun or those who prefer shade - without feeling isolated. Pergola and seating area with it's mountain and top town view were exceptional and used throughout the day and evening. Third floor balcony offers partial sea views with the added bonus of comfortable seating, and a fridge for drinks and ice cream. The team of Yusef, his family and the villa owner Felicity looked after us so well.

  • We were a party of 5 friends staying in the villa in early June 2017. The villa is accurately described in the listing and has everything you could need for a comfortable holiday. Everything was spotless and in working order. Of particular note were the very private pool/terrace and the fantastic roof terrace which was a great place for and pre (and post) dinner drinks overlooking the bay. Felicity was a pleasure to deal with and very quick to respond throughout the booking process and beyond. Whilst we were at the villa Yusuf was friendly, helpful and easy to contact. The villa is within walking distance of lots of shops and restaurants, particular favourites were Kaya, Pera, Aubergine and Küçük Ev (Small House), but everywhere we tried was good with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Overall a great villa in a great holiday destination!

  • Kalkan, once a small fishing village, still has a lovely friendly village-like feel. Plentiful of restaurants and cafes, all serving great food from casual to some quite fine dining. A very well appointed villa with spacious bedrooms, marvellous bathrooms and beautiful garden. We also liked the little things like the scent of the honeysuckle, the fact that we were met at the villa on arrival, love the non-slip bathroom tiles, the friendly bus drivers, ... Our best outings were the boat trip and a day in Patara exploring the ruins - we had them all to ourselves! We have to come back!

    Thanks Felicity for a perfect family holiday!

  • Villa Kirmizi Lale is a wonderful villa with an attractive, well appointed interior, new kitchen and bathrooms, and an ottoman seating area on the top floor with stunning views over the bay - perfect for enjoying a glass of wine or two! Outside is a large pool and a patio area with sunbeds and dining table/ chairs. My teenagers enjoyed the hammocks in the garden areas, I liked to watch the sun rising over the mountains in the morning with a cuppa - the view of the mountains is also stunning. For me, one of the best things about this villa is the location. It's on a quiet side street but only a few minutes walk to the Migros supermarket and the Thursday market, and only 10 minutes walk into town. Another plus for us was the thoughtfulness of the local team - they popped by briefly each day to check we were ok and as well as cleaning the pool each morning. The owner, Felicity, arranged our taxi transfers to and from the airport and we used the same driver on a day trip to Patara, which was a fantastic day out.

  • This villa is great and well equipped. It's within easy walking distance of Kalkan town centre and the views are lovely. The owner's attention to detail and recommendations of trips, etc were excellent. The weather was divine and all restaurants were terrific and amazingly inexpensive.
