About Alex Austin
Alex and Terry Austin live in Ipswich in the UK.
Alex Austin purchased this Villa in 2013
Why Alex Austin chose Kalkan
We bought in March 2013. We have been coming to Kalkan for over 17 years and love the area. Our villa is in our favorite part of Kalkan - Kisla with the most sunshine and best sunsets.
What makes this Villa unique
We believe our villa has some of the best views in Kisla with loads of terrace spaces on multiple levels. Our garden is stunning when all the flowers are in full bloom.

Maid service twice a week, gardener daily, poolman daily. They even cleaned the BBQ for us - most unexpected!!! FABULOUS
Lovely Comfortable Villa
Lovely spacious villa with lots of areas to escape to. The pool was area was nice and good views across the bay, plenty sun loungers and umbrellas. We were a bit disappointed with the table tennis table and equipment which had seen better days.
The bedrooms were all spacious and plenty of wardrobe and drawer space. For days that we were in and needed to cook we did struggle with the kitchen a bit due to a lack equipment, such as baking trays, newer saucepans, grill for the oven etc. However, we got by and it wasn’t a major problem.
Lovely to have the bread delivered every morning and great also that replacement water for the cooler was available by just messaging the Villa management who would drop by with a new one.
This was our third trip to Kalkan and as always we had a great holiday.
Thanks for reviewing our villa. I take your point about the table tennis table and a new one us on order. I'm surprised that you thought the kitchen poorly equipped as I bought all new saucepans and frying pans prior to your arrival. I will ask my Manager to investigate this and the lack of a grill!
Thanks again for the feedback.
Lived up to our expectations
Villa Holu was exactly like the photographs. Everything about it was stylish, comfortable, well equipped, well located, stunning views and more...
All correspondence with the owners was prompt, helpful and friendly. Our party of 8 included 4 teenagers who were thrilled with the games room and table tennis not to mention the good wi-fi connection.
We would definitely recommend this villa and would not hesitate in returning ourselves.
A holiday to remember it was our first time to Turkey and it certainly won't be the last villa holu was out of this world and we will definitely be back next year. Thankyou Alex
Villa Holu is absolutely beautiful. The house is large, spacious, comfortable, well equipped and a joy to be in. The views are magnificent and the snooker room and table tennis a fabulous bonus for our teenage family. Our family ranged from 11 years old to 67 and all our needs were met. Alex, the owner, is wonderful and ensured our stay was perfect. We hope to go back many times in the future.
This was a convenient spot - ideally located for the beach clubs and the sea taxi to Kalkan town for the evenings. The house is beautifully presented and spotlessly clean with lots of space and having the pool and table tennis table was great with two teenage boys. The villa itself was everything we could have wished for and the outside areas of the house were equally stunning and very well cared for. If I was to make one constructive comment I would have preferred the photos to be little more honest - the 'main' road of Kisla approaches the villa down a hill which makes part of the terrace in full view of those approaching and the houses directly in front of the villa are not shown either. I'm sure to 99/100 people neither of these matter but uninterrupted views and a feeling of away from it all are important to us and if they are for you then this isn't your villa.
The villa is approx 200m from the sea. Kalkan Beach Club and The Mahal Beach Clubs are just 8 mins walk down from the villa. They both have a restaurant and they operate a boat service to the harbour. Kalkan has a small pleasant pebble beach. Otherwise you can hop on a dolmus (a Turkish minibus) and head for either Patara Beach approx 20 mins. 18km of sand, described as one of the most beautiful stretches of sand in all of Turkey, or Kaputas Beach a small but stunning beach, takes 10 mins.
The nearest airport is Dalaman, which takes approx 1.5 hours to Kalkan (130km). Transfers to and from the airport can be arranged by us. We use a local company located in Kalkan.
The centre of Kalkan/Harbour takes about 3 mins by taxi. As all of Kalkan is hilly to walk it will take about 20 - 25 mins. Kalkan is in the heart of the Lycian region and there are many historical sites close by to visit ruins of Patara, Xanthos- the capital city of Lycia, Kekova - Lycia's famous Sunken City, ghost village of Kayakoy, Saklikent Gorge.
There are plenty of banks with a cash dispenser in the village as well as a Post Office. Credit cards or sterling as well as Turkish lira are widely accepted in most of the town's shops and restaurants. There are several supermarkets in Kalkan, and 2 small supermarkets within 3 mins walk of the villa. Market day is on a Thursday. Kalkan is quietly sophisticated and postcard pretty with a multitude of excellent harbour and roof top restaurants offering all manner of culinary delights, together with a good selection of stylish and atmospheric blues and jazz bars. The village shops stay open until around midnight and are well stocked with interesting antiques, crafts, jewelers, carpets and clothing. The narrowing streets of the old town are lined with whitewashed shuttered buildings festooned with brightly coloured bougainvillea.
