My husband and I had a wonderful week in Tulip Cottage in October. It is perfect for a couple looking for rest and relaxation. Turgut and Lale were delightful hosts. The cottage itself is very sweet, the garden and pool are beautiful and well-maintained, and the views out to sea are mesmerising. There are a couple of restaurants and a little shop in the village, within walking distance, which was great as we did not have a car. With a car you would have lots of options for daytrips and eating. We would love to go back one day.
Booking Experience: I had the pleasure of liaising with Christine from Kalkan.villas; she described the villa and surrounding areas exactly as they were and was extremely helpful during booking. Speaking to her directly allowed me to ensure everything was legitimate with regards to the villa. She was always on hand to answer queries and even came with the owner to the villa to hand over keys and show us around, a real asset.
Location: If you are comfortable with staying slightly out of Kalkan and don't mind the twisty road up and down this place may be for you. Very quiet road, completely secluded (perfect for conservative families), very close to some local shops and plenty of lovely restaurants nearby.
Villa: The villa itself is decorated to a simple but good standard, everything is clean and modern. The villa design is good if you have young children as they remain visible from all three rooms, air conditioning was perfect and my son loved the swimming pool and garden. A car is probably essential to stay here (garage available).
My 1 and only gripe is the villa lacked any essential items, now I understand this is not expected but having stayed in many villa/cottages I have always seen a good amount of simple items left in the property. I would suggest stocking items such as sugar/salt/tea/coffee/washing up liquid/soap/coal for the BBQ etc. For short stay families it is a trouble having to buy ALL these small items for a short amount of time only to leave them behind. If some of these things were available it would be a 5 star review!
