Capehouse is wonderful with its tranquility, privacy, landscape, terraces, platform directly to the sea, and the pool. Rooms are decorated simply but in a perfect way that you have everything you need. All the bedrooms are en-suite. Hasan (the gardener and the pool man) is always ready to please you with everything. Access to the town centre is very easy and quick by the minibuses. Especially sunsets with the view of boats sailing are stunning. But the thing is that pictures do not do it a justice as I told Hakan the owner who is incredibly helpful with everything. I am wishing to come back to Kas and stay at the Capehouse again.
We are 2 swedish families with fairly demanding teenagers, ages 14-20, we spent 2 wonderful weeks here. This place not only met our expectations - this is one rare example of the real thing surpassing the shown photos with a wide margin.
The villa is around 5 years old and of high building standard. It was clean and well maintained and gave a very good impression. In case you need to escape from the sun there is a selection of DVDs/CDs and games, not to forget some 150+ TV channels (incl Bloomberg, BBC etc). Downstairs the four bedrooms are neatly placed in a square which will give you some privacy should you need it. All have individual entrance to the pool area, where we spent many late afternoons. This side of the peninsula is less developed but have the most magnificent sunsets.
During our stay it was really hot (40+ Celsius) so we were immensely grateful for the well functioning (and quiet) AC, we slept extremely well. If you go for a swim in the sea below take it slow on the way back up (or have a cold Efes waiting) since this walk could be demanding when hot.
There is plenty of parking space for 2 big cars, make sure you rent a 4-wd since the slope is rather steep.
We very much enjoyed the hospitable owners, whom were an additional ingredient in a wonderful vacation. They will leave you in peace if you prefer, or you can ask and they will arrange boat trips, recommend restaurants or supermarkets or anything you might want to know. We went for the 2nd option and that saved a lot of time. In case you are interested in buying property Hakan will gladly show you some nice houses on the peninsula.

We have been traveling for the last 6 months and this was one of the places we were most sad to leave.
The house was beautiful and appeared to be brand new. All the finishes were lovely it had a lighty and spacious feel about it. We really loved the outside areas, especially on the very broad terraces or around the pool. Each day we would walk down the steps to the sea and swim off the platform, this was great fun and the water was crystal clear. Everything worked, there was plenty of hot water, wifi worked etc etc.
Kate (a fellow Aussie) and her husband Hakan could not have been more welcoming. There were some basic provisions, fresh vegetables etc in the fridge, as well as a lovely welcome of red wine and some Turkish delight, neither of which lasted long.
They helped us greatly with suggestions for dining, babysitting and getting some admin done around town
The house is located about 5-10 minutes from town on a beautiful peninsula, we loved this because there was a feeling of space and tranquility in the area. Having said that there were very nice restaraunts nearby (lighthouse being one) as well as hammans for spa & massage. Every morning we walked the 'loop' which took about an hour and went round most of the peninsula - highly recommended.
What a great little town, all the amenities for tourists but still low key and charming. There were no pushy restaraunt owners and the shop keepers were also pretty laid back. There are many great things to do from here, but it was also just nice to spend days back in the the beautiful 'cape house'. We went in June so obviously it would be busier in July/August, but that's true of pretty much everywhere.
We can't fault this holiday experience and we highly recommend it.
The picturesque harbour town of Kas, nestled at the foot of the Taurus Mountains, retains its charm and beauty as it has done since ancient Lycian times. The Kas Peninsula is one of the gems of Turkey's spectacular 'Turquoise Coast' situated between the international airports of Antalya and Dalaman. The town itself is a blend of village life, fishing, boating and a brisk tourist trade. The mountains and the sea that surround Kas provide their full share of activities while the bars and restaurants offer plenty of night life. The shopping is excellent supplying anything from local handicrafts, leather goods, lovely cotton clothing, jewellery and the fabulous fruit and vegetables of the weekly bazaar. Activities include scuba diving, canoeing, trekking, cliff parachuting, mountain biking, riding, fishing, archaeological sightseeing and best of all renting a boat for the day to visit the nearby coves and beaches for bar-b-cues and picnics.
