Villa Caretta - Kalkan, FANTASTIC
Review Submitted: 23 June 2009
Date of Stay: June 2009
From the start of the process, in enquiring about the holiday, to booking & taking the holiday you could not wish to deal with a more helpful & trustworthy couple as Dick & Jenny.
There is always a few nerves when you land at the airport, will the prearranged taxi be there? will the villa meet expectations? Well the taxi was waiting for us as planned and when we met Tracy (the local contact) at the Villa we were thrilled, when we were shown around. The photos & description were accurate, but in fact reality was better! The property was spotlessly clean and more spacious than we imagined. There had been a minor water leak in a bathroom prior to our arrival. This had been resolved quickly & effectively by Tracy. This gave confidence, that in the unlikely event that a serious problem occured it would be dealt with speedily.
Each day Rambo the pool man came and ensured the pool was kept spotlessly clean. The mature gardens were well maintained and gave privacy.
Tracy the local contact was extremely helpful & gave lots of worthwhile advice. Her husband Captain Ali operates a boat & our day out on the Zeus was a highlight of the holiday. Captain Ali, or should that be Chef Ali cooked us a fantastic meal onboard the Zeus. We had a lazy day snorkelling at various points around the bay.
The property is on a hill. This affords lovely views of the town & the bay. It takes a leasurely 15- 20 min stroll into the town & harbour. We enjoy walking so the stroll back up the hill was not a problem. Some people may prefer to use a taxi & these are in abundance and are cheap to use.
People of limited mobility may find the steep & uneven roads a problem.
I would wholeheartedly recommend this property to a friend. I am sure, having found this gem of a villa I will make repeat bookings.
There are over 200 restaurants in Kalkan and our favorites include the Mussaka, the Aubergine, Sun Terrace & Ilyada. The food in every restaurant was to a good standard.
There are plenty of activities to do should you wish to leave the sanctuary of your villa, but we were looking for a relaxing, romantic week in the sun and this was perfect.
Tourists without a Car,
Owner's Response: We are glad that you had such a good time in our villa and we would be more than happy to welcome you again. If you would like to return please be aware that our bookings start quite early. For the 2009 season we receivede the first enquiries in November 2008 and half of March 2009 we were almost fully booked. Each consecutive year we have more repeat customers and more early bookings.
