Our property manager will assist you with making transfer arrangements from either Dalaman or Antalya airports. We recommend ADDA Tours, a licensed and reputable transfer company, who will meet you at the airport and take you directly to Villa Tymnessos.

Once you arrive at Villa Tymnessos, a car is not required to enjoy all that Kalamar Bay and Kalkan have to offer. Local dolmus (mini buses) run frequently throughout the day during the summer and local taxis are always available and provide a convenient and inexpensive option. Several car, mini-van and scooter rental agencies are available locally should you wish to hire a vehicle after arrival. Both Dalaman and Antalya airports also offer several vehicle rental options.
We are a family that loves to travel. We have always talked about owning a little place somewhere oversees 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
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.
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.
The villa exceeded our expectations, great pool, never tire of the views over the bay. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to friends and family. Local beach club a must with lots of facilities included in the sun bed charge. Local restaurant Yelken well worth a visit superb food, service and atmosphere. Cafe Vita also worth a visit especially on barbeque night. Kalkan town and harbour a 30 minute strole is well worth a visit. Thank you Sean & Morgan (& Hamza) for welcoming us.
This place is something special!
I have never booked a holiday with more friendly, professional or accommodating people. From the moment we enquired to the moment we returned, the owners have been good humoured, patient and very helpful. From little queries about pool depth (as we have a 6 year old daughter), to helpful tips on places to go.
They helped organise our transfer, hire car, helped us with advice about Visas and returned our security deposit very promptly. Thank you.
The accommodation is amazing. The views breathtaking. The rooms are spacious and the whole place was excellently equipped (they even provided beach towels and great choice of kids stuff for their pool.) We had everything we needed and enjoyed the complimentary bits and bobs that had been left for us.
The only problem we had at this property was trying to decide which balcony to eat on and which amazing vista to soak up next.
It is a very clean villa. The air con works a treat. The pool is cleaned every day by M who was very courteous and friendly.
Location wise we loved it. We were only a couple of minutes walk away from restaurants and the Main Street into town. there is a vast choice of places to eat and we did not have a bad meal once.
We would definitely like to return to Villa Tymnessos, and would highly recommend the Villa as a place to stay in what is a beautiful area of Turkey.
Great value for money. Fast & easy to exchange information with owners and their local property management provides the best service. Roof terrace with stunning view!
A great place to base yourself. The villa was terrific, views awesome and the owners had put a lot of thought into fitting it out, to make sure you had a good time.
All of the terraces looked out over Kalamar Bay which was fantastic, whether that was lunch/dinner from the dining terrace or sundowners on the roof. We stayed in June/July and it was unusually hot I'm told, but the A/C was very good and once you got to towards sunset, there was a pleasant breeze across the roof terrace. Pool was great, pool man came every day and tidied up our mess (thanks). Cleaners came weekly and did a fine job. No issue with the 4 floor layout at all, meant everyone (two families) had plenty of space. Villa full of DVDs and games, found a portable CD player too. Kitchen well fitted, nice big fridge, washing machine a godsend. Plenty of pool/beach towels left for us. One late discovery, there is a guest book, with recommendations and tips, hidden in a drawer by the cleaners probably. Look for it! Any problems, the agent or his workman is there the next morning to resolve. Good location for us - out of town - but the taxi was only 15TL maybe 3 or 4 GBP. But you could comfortably walk to/from a nice hotel-restaurant and three or four bar-restaurants in 10mins. Wifi was great, no problems.
Negatives: no shade for the sunbeds, but the owners are going to look at that. Beer fridge on the roof terrace was not particularly cold, but hey that's nit-picking! Oh and time passed too quickly!!
Excellent villa over 4 floors - with 2 x en-suites and 2 additional family bathrooms it offered myself and extended family, children, stepchildren and their partners all the space we needed. The maintenance company were very attentative - cleaning the property half way through the week and the pool daily. and answering any queries we had. The villa was private but with breathtaking views across Kalkan. I will certainly consider booking again
The owners, Sean and Morgan, and their local property manager Hamza were very helpful from the outset.
The villa itself is in a lovely quiet location the next bay down from the main part of Kalkan and is very clean and comfortable. And the views out over the bay from the roof terrace and master bedroom in particular are stunning - I don't think I'd ever have got tired of waking up and looking out over that.
We went as two families, each with 2 kids of primary school age. The TV and DVD, wifi and pool kept them out of mischief (just about) when the adults were too busy cooking, drinking or dozing to be teaching them Mandarin, helping them practice the harp and all the other typical holiday activities you do with your kids.
Plenty to do as a family within 30-minute drive of the villa, there's some stunning natural beauty around this area. But I'll leave you to do your own research on that or to read the ideas we put in the guest book.
- 4-storey living isn't something I'm particularly used to or would particularly seek out again - on the occasions I went from bottom to top in one go my calves were screaming by the end, and I'd like to think that I'm in reasonable nick for a 40-year-old... But the result of that is the views from the upper floors - and they do compensate.
- Whilst we were there it was just too hot (high 30s / low 40s) to think about walking down the hill and into Kalkan let alone back up it, the centre of town is slightly out of range (for us at least) during the heat. So we drove in, or took a taxi (of which there are many). Nice for spring and autumn strolling, less so in the heat of summer.
All in all, highly recommended - certainly one of the best villas I've stayed in, and I've stayed in a few. Go enjoy!
