About the property

Villa in Kalkan, Mediterranean Coast, Turkey - Peaceful Location, 5 Minutes Walk to Town Centre

Villa Mavidus is home to Bill and Doreen for approximately 7 months of the year, making it a home as well as holiday accommodation. We are situated in a peaceful haven just off the Kalamar Road yet only 5 mins walk to the town centre. Whilst lazing beside the private pool you can enjoy the views over Kalkan Bay and the mountains behind, or alternatively you can enjoy a BBQ on the roof terrace once again with stunning views and perfect peace. The pool is 6 x 4m with rounded corner steps for access or just sitting and lazing in the cooling water during the heat of the day. If you choose to be more adventurous and rent a car for exploring the wonderfully historic countryside there is ample car parking space available. The villa is a fully equipped family home with all the modern equipment a family would require, including Free Wifi,air-con and large terrace outside with 4 sunbeds, 1 large parasol, 4 director chairs and table and 6 chairs for outside dining along with built-in stone BBQ.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Bill,

Just thought I would drop you short note to let you know what a wonderful holiday we had. 

Your villa was perfect for us in every way. From the lower terrace with pool to the upper terrace with the views. Inside there was everything we could need, the water dispenser was a bonus and we really enjoyed Doreen's art!!

Mehmet was excellent! His meet and greet at the property was spot on, he offered us lots of information and trips etc. and after that we never saw him unless we asked a question of him.

There is more I could say but I think you get the gist.

Oh nearly forgot the chance meeting on a boat with your friends Ernie & Allison!!! What an amazing coincidence.

We would like to return next year.

The Villa was perfect and in a great location it was everything we expected.

  • 4 of 5

The villa was clean and very well presented, all the facilities we expected were there and Mehmet the local help was ever so helpful as and when we needed him. The only downside was that despite advising when we booked that we had a late departure fight and being advised this would be fine the next visitors who booked after us had an early arrival on the same day we left. This made our last day very stressful and meant the cleaners were cleaning around us during the day and we had to shower and finish packing whilst the cleaner was sat waiting for us to leave and this made things awkward between ourselves and Mehmet who was put in a difficult position, we then spent the last couple of hours wandering around the town in the afternoon sun waiting to leave for the airport all of which somewhat spoilt what was otherwise a brilliant holiday and villa.

Lovely well equipped villa, great location

  • 5 of 5

A lovely villa and pool in an ideal location within easy walking distance or a very short taxi ride from everything Kalkhan has to offer. The villa is clean and well equipped with little extras such as beach towels appreciated. The owner's representative was on hand and extremely helpful in providing information and assisting with trip booking etc. Definitely recommended!

Excellent location. Lovely pool area

  • 5 of 5

Having holidayed in Kalkan on many occasions in both Hotels and Villas this year we booked Villa Mavi Dus and were certainly not disappointed. The villa is situated in a nice neighbourhood, within easy walking distance of the harbor and shops and there are restaurants nearby. The owners live in the property for 7 months of the year and the standard of equipment and linen etc was far superior to that which is normally expected of self catering accommodation. I certainly wouldn't hesitate in booking this villa again
