We recommend ADDA Tours, a licensed and reputable transfer company, who will meet you at the airport and take you directly to Villa Tymnessos. The non-stop transfer time from Dalaman Airport to Villa Tymnessos is about 1 hour and 20 minutes. Transfer from Antalya Airport usually takes around 3 hours and generally includes a short stop.

Once you arrive at Villa Tymnessos, a car is not required to enjoy all that Kalamar Bay and Kalkan have to offer.

About Sean and Morgan Dollman

We are a family that loves to travel. We have always talked about owning a little place somewhere where we could escape from the world. We found that in Kalkan and Villa Tymnessos is our escape.

Sean and Morgan Dollman purchased this villa in 2007

Why Sean and Morgan Dollman chose Kalkan

We fell in love with the tiny village Kalkan during a visit in Summer 2005 and returned in 2007 to house hunt. Villa Tymnessos was the first villa our agent took us to and it was perfect. We wanted a home that we could someday live in year round, that could accommodate our family reunions, that was a safe and child-friendly place to raise our family, and offered sea views and sunsets that we would never tire of enjoying. We love wandering through the quaint village and reliving the fond memories of past trips and renewing friendships with the local merchants. Once you eat the local food and experience one of the special Kalkan sunsets, you will know why this little village is so special to us.

What makes this villa unique

We have tried to make the villa feel relaxing and comfortable like a real family home should. The villa is located in Kalamar Bay, which is very quiet and away from the tourist focus of Kalkan village, and which we believe adds to the serenity and relaxing atmosphere of the villa. We have decorated the villa with many locally produced crafts and linens, and we try whenever possible, to buy local. What makes the villa so special? It has to be the view. Where ever you are in the villa you have incredible views of the Mediterranean, the neighboring olive groves, the goats wandering the hill to the right of the villa, and the Taurus mountains behind Kalkan. But it will be the sea views that will always grab your attention and which you remember after your return home.

Amazing Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I heard about this property from a friend and wanted to try it as a family getaway. We travelled as a group of three adults, two children, and an infant. Information provided on the website and contact information was very helpful to arrange the transfer from the airport to the villa. The company recommended for us was extremely professional and considerate given that we have baby travelers. We arrived to the villa which is really spacious, clean, and well-maintained. The furniture is good as new. The Dollmans were kind enough to leave us very helpful information on things to do in Kalkan, contact information of taxi drivers, supermarkets, restaurants, etc, and guiding information to use the home appliances. This was of a huge benefit to us as first time visitors. I cannot begin to describe the views from the villa. Yes! All of the photos on the website, you get to see them for real! :) Every window or glass door provides you with a relieving view. The living rooms and bedrooms are distributed in a way that ensures privacy and comfort especially for people with kids. The villa and the area in general is very safe and quite. Neighbors are very friendly as well. The Dollmans have kindly allowed our kids to use the toys of theirs which our kids have really appreciated. The pool was cleaned daily and we really had a great time swimming as it is also private. The food in the restaurants recommended by the Dollmans is great. I'm home now but when I look back, I remember breakfasts on the balcony, sunrises and sunsets clear from home, greenery, and hospitality. We will definitely come back to our home away from home!

A lovely villa

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely 5 day’s at this wonderful villa in Kalkan.

The place was nicely decorated, well maintained and equipped. It is in a great location to walk to the restaurants, beach club and town.

Recommend breakfast at Cafe Vita, Turkish bath at ‘Sera’ and Turkish shave at ‘Sweeney Todd’s’

The problems we had ( nothing serious) were quickly and politely sorted by the property managers which minimised any inconvenience.

Great place, great location, great view!!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at Villa Tymnessos in Kalkan. Sean and Morgan provided all the information needed before and during our stay. We liked it so much and extended our stay by one day to spend more time in the house.

The view from the terrace and the main bedroom is stunning! We used the pool at nights, perfect place to spend time with family, rooms are spacious and everyone felt so comfortable. We had a minor issue with the electricity, but Hamza and Suleyman quickly sorted out. Mustafa was there every morning to water the garden, clean the pool and check in to see that everything was in order.

It’s a place to relax, rest and enjoy the holiday.

We plan to go back to stay longer next year.

Cheers,

Berrin

Perfect summer holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned home after the most wonderful stay at the fantastic Villa Tymnessos in Kalkan... we absolutely loved every minute! The house was amazing, the little town was amazing and we just had the most incredible time! The villa provided the most beautiful views from every room and provided everything that we could possibly need - the welcome package on our arrival was extremely thoughtful and much appreciated!

Two families can stay together very comfortably in this well appointed home, the swimming pool is very sheltered and provided a welcome refresher after a long day out.

We didn’t have any real queries, but the property managers were always available to help. They even organised us a wonderful baby sitter on two occasions.

We received excellent recommendations from the owners and explored Kalkan, Kas, Patara, Islamlar and the surrounding areas. We really enjoyed the Kalamar Beach Club and fell in love with Kaputas beach. We also did a two day trip on Sea Bella Junior to Kekova... it was amazing!!

We recommend renting a car during the stay, as it makes it so much easier to navigate around the town and nearby attractions. The local supermarket adjacent to Cafe Vita is helpful for emergency supplies, but I would recommend Migros Supermarket for shopping.

Don't miss the pancakes at the Kalkan market on a Thursday!

We absolutely love Turkey, its people, its food, its hospitality and beautiful waters and cannot wait to return!
