About Lisette and Frenk
We are Lisette and Frenk. We are Dutch and presently live in Amsterdam. We like to travel around the world. We lived and worked many years abroad in countries in Africa, South Asia and the Americas. We searched in Europe for three years for a holiday home and accidentally decided to have a look in Turkey. We found our piece of paradise in Kalkan, a seaside village with a wonderful atmosphere and a tropical feel.
Lisette and Frenk purchased this Villa in 2015
Why Lisette and Frenk chose Kalkan
We first bought neighbouring Villa Bella and know the advantages of the location. When the opportunity presented itself to buy villa Olive Tree, we saw the possibilities for combined rental for more guests who are keen on privacy, for example two families.

Sometimes you go to a place and you feel a little underwhelmed as the photos are just too good, well, this Villa lives up to the photos and our expectations.
Good area, 25 TL to town this year in a taxi, or the boat, nice and quiet in evenings, very clearly se to three beach clubs.
Its not worth me going on, its as good as you will hope for.
If you can get a car I would recommend it, Kaputas, Patara and Islamlar are all worth a visit, I'm sure you could bus it though.
Find Metins taxi card on the fridge, great taxi driver, cool music, send him a Spotify playlist and he'll have it on for you.
All in all a fantastic second visit to Kalkan.
Thank you! It is not only a beautiful recommendation for villa Olive Tree but also for Kalkan as a holiday destination. You are nice guests and we hope to welcome you again in the future!
Beautiful villa; calm, clean and well appointed
Spot on! Thanks!
My wife and I stayed in Villa Olive Tree for a week in September 2018. Our flight arrival time meant we didn’t arrive at the villa until about 4:00am but local management was there to ensure the handover was completed in person. (By the way, I organised a flawless return airport transfers with Frenk).
On walking up the steps to the villa and then entering the property we were immediately impressed with this stylish, high quality and beautifully appointed two-story property. A welcome pack was provided with essential provisions but it was straight to bed for us after a long journey.
The next morning gave us the opportunity to see the villa in daylight and really appreciate all that it offers. We enjoyed breakfast in the garden sitting beside the pool looking at the view out to sea from our elevated position. Later in the evening this setting would supply spectacular views of the sun setting.
The facilities within the villa are as described in the particulars. Perfect for a couple but note the second bedroom contains 2 x single beds so unsuitable if you wish to go on holiday with another couple but ideal for two kids.
The villa is situated just outside Kalkan in an area called Kisla but Kalkan town centre is matter of minutes away in a taxi and within walking distance if you’re feeling active.
If I recall, there were limited eating options in Kisla should you wish to dine nearby the villa. Fidanka Hotel had a good restaurant. The Castle Restaurant is directly opposite the villa however I could not recommend it for food as we were very disappointed — mind you, you’ll receive a warm welcome and good coffee.
Food is one of the main attractions for us in Kalkan with a multitude of quality restaurants in the town centre. If you have never been to this area of Turkey then I can only encourage you to make sure you go...and stay in Villa Olive Tree!
Some tips to share would include to consider bringing a some dishwasher and washing machine tablets as these appliances are there in the kitchen for your use (some dishwasher tablets were in the welcome pack but it would save you buying more). There is WiFi available but you may have to set up a VPN if you wanted to stream channels such as BBC iPlayer. An Nespresso coffee machine would be a welcome addition.
There is very little criticism that we can think of in respect of my dealings with Frenk in the booking process and our stay in the villa. It’s near perfection!
Wow, we are impressed with the effort you put into this wonderful review and grateful for the compliments to our local management and to us. You said it all, nothing to add. Just that we love Nespresso too but the capsules are not widely availbalbe in Turkey so that would create a problem. Some places in Kalkan serve excellent coffees. For your next visit, ask for our favourites.
Fabulous villa vacation
What a beautiful villa in the best location in Kisla,Kalkan ..the property has views that take your breath away and is furnished and equipped to the highest standard a true home from home with a touch of luxury . Amazing outdoor spaces and gardens with a lovely infinity pool overlooking the bay . Lovely and clean with great comfy beds and quiet air conditioning in the bedrooms .
We will be back we all loved it ,peaceful but within a stone's throw of fab beach clubs and a quick taxi into the old town at night if its too hot to walk .
Thanks for your nice review!
We like the location as well...Just away from the sounds of the bustling attractive old town, but with everything close enough to enjoy a great holiday.
We love to see you again!

THOUGHT WE WERE IN HEAVEN!!
Well what can I say, our first communication with the lovely Lisette and Frenk felt like we had made new friends. What a lovely couple, the booking process was very easy. I am a regular Kalkan goer and love this wonderful place with all its fabulous restaurants and lovely shops, so when my sister and I decided to grab a cheeky week in June we came across Villa Olive Tree and just fell in love with it. We were definitely not disappointed, it was everything we expected it to be and more. On arrival we were met by Muhammet and my friend Deniz who delivered all our shopping which was great as we wanted to spend our first evening chilling in our beautiful villa with the most amazing sunsets. The outside area of Olive Tree is so well equipped with top quality sun beds, sofas and table and chairs and lots of lovely plants, it is beautiful. The infinity pool is just fabulous and spotlessly clean as was the whole place. Our beautiful bedrooms had a large wrap around balcony for us to enjoy our evening drinks and morning coffees admiring the stunning views. Showers were powerful and plenty of hot water and the beds, bedding and pillows were of top quality which for me is very important. WiFi was great. The kitchen was so very well equipped with everything that you need, you can tell this villa has been lovingly thought out to suit the guests every requirement.
Having never stayed on the Kisla side before I can honestly say I loved it. It is a bit of a walk to the supermarket, however Deniz from Can Can supermarket is always happy to take orders and deliver which saved us time. There are a few restaurants within walking distance and the water taxi from Mahal Beach club is a short walk away and takes a few minutes to the harbour. Taxis are only a few lira home.
I would highly recommend this beautiful villa and also the villa Bella (next door) which is also owned by Lisette and Frenk and has a lovely wooden door connecting the two properties in case two families or friends want to stay together.
Thank you Lisette and a Frenk for letting us stay in your beautiful home from home, we will definitely be back.
