About Katie Murphy

My name is Glenn Pereira and I am the owner of the villa.

Katie Murphy is my daughter and she kindly handles all the administration to do with villa enquiries and bookings. She is very efficient and will give you the best service possible.

I was born in Burma (now Myanmar) as a British citizen and came to England at the age of 9, to the Croydon area of South East London. I was educated at St Joseph's College in Upper Norwood and UMIST, part of Manchester University, before living in the Wirral, Merseyside and working in Liverpool for 8 years. Married Fiona, who was born in Surrey but lived all her life on the Wirral, and moved with her and our three kids (1,3,5) to the Netherlands where we lived for 22 years before returning to England, to a lovely village called Clifton Hampden near Oxford. I worked in IT and Management consultancy before semi retirement and now work part time as chairman of a training company in the Netherlands.

Katie is our youngest and she is married and living in Cornwall. Having lived much of her life in the Netherlands, she is fluent in Dutch and German. She went to a EU run European school in Bergen in the Netherlands before obtaining an Equine Science degree at Writtle College near Chelmsford. She then worked with horses for many years, mostly with Blue Cross, before becoming the Production Manager for a Lighting company. She is now married and living in Cornwall.

Katie Murphy purchased this villa in 2006

Why Katie Murphy chose Kalkan

Cedar Villa is beautifully located with stunning views, peaceful surroundings and reasonable access to the town while enjoying a rather unique position of absolutely uninterrupted views only 50 yards from the Mediterranean. How often can you find a property so close to the sea?

What makes this villa unique

What our guests usually say is that the villa is very well equipped and they very much appreciate the services and considerate attention of Mehmet, our Property Manager.

Guestbook comments from the manager

***** Home from home

I'm a seasoned traveller and decided to book an independent holiday with my family(can be very risky in today's scamming climate), Katie was available on the end of the phone for my many questions(sorry Katie)!, transfers arranged through Mehmet in Kalkan(a man sent from the gods), smooth private transfer and arrived late at night. Villa was truly beautiful, views to die for across Kalkan Bay, car transfer handy for sight seeing and food shopping, but not essential, we walked a 2 min stroll to the bay and used the tranquil water taxi( available day and night until 04:00hrs) to take us to Kalkan marina, with enough shops and restaurants to keep you entertained for days!. Cedar villa has everything needed plus more, a huge choice of DVD's to watch after coming back on the boat at night(kids loved this), great sized rooms and fully equipped kitchen. Being able to take less clothes and popping into the washing machine and drying on the line in the back garden within 20 mins leaves loads of room in your case for beautiful gifts purchased in Kalkan shops( gorgeous coloured glass lanterns were my downfall). Swimming pool fantastic, pump stopped working one morning, phoned Mehmet, he was at the villa within 10 mins and an electrician was there 10 mins later and repairs completed within 30 mins(try beating that in England)!!!! Mehmet is sent from the gods, he arrived by 9:00 every day, chatted about life in Turkey, about his family and about his religion, a wonderful man, knowing that when your in a foreign country that you have a wonderful man on the end of a phone to help you out whenever you need beats any holiday rep, thanks Mehmet for all you did and our lovely chats, and for reading my Turkish instructions for my sun burn cream. We will definitely be returning, I would love to say more about this wonderful villa but I won't because I need to make sure it doesn't get overbooked and stops me from returning!!!

Amazing... beautiful... loved it x

  • 5 of 5

Transfer went perfect .. arrived around 4.30 pm to the villa.

We felt so lucky to have picked this villa.. clean, great location, quiet and ours for 10 days!

We have fallen in love with kalkan and already planning to go back!

As you come out of the villa and turn left... about 15 steps up the hill is a lovely restaurant called The castle

Great people... Great food! Highly recommend!!

Thank you to Mehmet for cleaning the pool area every day... and for organising our transfers.

Thank you to Katie the owner who responds to my questions very quickly.

An absolute gem!

  • 5 of 5

This was a return visit to Kalkan but our first to Cedar Villa.

I am pleased to share that Cedar Villa is everything you'd hope for in a holiday villa. The facilities are fantastic, Glenn and Katie (the owners) are highly responsive and Mehmet (the manager) can't do enough for you.

Situated in Kisla, across the bay from Kalkan makes the town easily accessible but also far enough away so as not to feel overwhelmed by other holiday makers. Walking distance from both the beach clubs means you can go swimming in the sea without needing to plan a whole day out and return to the comfort of the villa afterwards.

The villa itself is very well appointed and we found we were happy to spend a high proportion of the days just hanging out between the sea and the terrace/pool then going into Kalkan for meals in the evenings (too many good quality and reasonably priced restaurants to mention!).

Overall if you're looking for a comfortable sun holiday I can highly recommend Cedar Villa.

We enjoy very much our stay at Cedar Villa. Everything was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, and exactly like in the pictures. The area is very calm. Nevertheless, it is perfectly located, near Kalkan and next to two Beach clubs. And the view from

the house is truly amazing!!!

Great villa, best location.

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 weeks in Kisla. The villa was perfect, located in a quiet part of the area and a really short walk down to our favourite beach club. (Kalkan Park Beach Club). The views over the bay are beautiful , day and night and there is everything in the villa that you could need. Mehmet who called every morning to do the pool was friendly and informative. It's a few minutes drive into Kalkan which we preferred as we didn't want to stay in the centre. There are loads of restaurants in the town and a couple out at Kisla. The shopping in Kalkan is great, BSG for handbags, Boutique Belma for clothes and lots of shops selling bespoke art and gifts. Merkez is the best cafe and the best two restaurants are The Olive Garden for the rooftop terrace restaurants and Aubergine for the harbour front restaurants. Don't forget to feed the dogs and cats when you are there. KAPSA vacinates and neuters them but they rely on the tourists in the summer for food and then KAPSA feeds them in the winter.

The pool at the villa is great, on a terrace with the bay view and a good size. Aircon works well in the rooms and the beds are comfortable. We appreciated the iPod speakers and there was a good selection of books and dvds if we wanted them.

Views to die for!

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from Kalkan where we spent two weeks in Cedar Villa. The location and views are absolutely stunning. The villa is very well equipped for all your needs and feels very homely. We ate out most nights in Kalkan which is a short drive away (taxi's are readily available and very cheap). The restaurants are fantastic, I don't think we had a bad meal in two weeks! We all enjoyed the pool which overlooks the sea! All in all a great holiday, will definitely return!

Amazing Villa

  • 5 of 5

This is our first visit to Kalkan and Cedar Villa. We have had an amazing holiday and it helped that the villa was so well equipped, you name it and it was in the villa from baby plates and beakers to full set of pans, iron, and it was great to have a dishwasher and a washing machine, it was like going from home to home. It was good to have 3 floors the house was large enough for 2 couples to have their own space and not get in each other's way, Mehmet is amazing, he comes every morning and cleans the pool and the outside area. If you happen to have any problems he will come over straight away. We have enjoyed a wonderful 2 week family holiday. The restaurants are amazing and we enjoyed Kaputas Beach where you can get homemade pancakes it is Well worth a trip to Xanthos ancient city and Sakilent Gorge where you can go on a zip wire and rafting.

Cedar Villa is situated in Kisla, offering peace and privacy with breathtaking scenery. Ideal for couples or families, Kisla is a short boat ride or a five minute drive or taxi ride from the town Kalkan with its picturesque harbour and narrow, cobbled streets packed with fascinating shops (rugs, clothes, antiques, jewellery, ceramics etc), bars and cafes. At night Kalkan comes to life, with its high quality restaurants, many at roof terrace level, with stunning views. Kalkan has its own small beach by the harbour. Kaputas, a lovely sandy beach at the foot of a ravine, is 8 minutes away by car and Patara beach, the second longest in the world, is 15 minutes drive away. Kalkan is set in an area steeped in history, with many ancient sites nearby. These include Xanthos, Letoon, Pinara, Tlos and Patara. A trip up to the mountains behind Kalkan will take your breath away. Kalkan and the area offer lots of watersports, including water-skiing, snorkelling and diving. Activities and trips are easily arranged.
