“Our 2nd time - Wasn't sure it could be better - but it was,”
Reviewed August 2, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Tracy as always went beyond what you might expect from a host. Always available to help and advise making the holiday so much easier and very relaxing.

The villa is exceptionally clean and well cared for. This year there were two new large family dinning tables and plenty of space for the 7 of us. In our party I had 5 girls 20 & 21 and one 13 year old. If lying by the pool and doing nothing isn't for you - then there is plenty to do during the day if you want to walk 10-15 minutes to the harbour and grab a free speed boat go to a beach club or just stroll around the small and beautiful town. In the evening eating out wasn't expensive and for those that liked to start their evening at midnight there was just one 'club' to suit! - however Kalkan is NOT a clubbing place it is a family orientated, friendly and overall quiet. Certainly from the Villa you cannot hear the town it is quiet and peaceful.

Going out with Ali on the boat is well worth it and having gone last year we really wanted to do it again.

Overall this is an excellent choice if you are a large family or group of friends and I have no doubt we will be returning.

“Fantastic villa, with stunning views”
Reviewed April 25, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

We have just returned from a fantastic 2 week stay at Tas Villa in Kalkan.

We travelled as a large family of 2 adults and 6 children which fascinated the locals, every where we went people were counting our children.

Tracy is a fantastic host, very helpful & friendly, and holds a fountain of knowledge about Kalkan.

Firstly, the villa. Wow what a villa!!! Very spacious with excellent facilities, everything we needed was supplied - Tracy, thank you very much. The outside space is just as fantastic with a roof terrace, balconies and 2 areas to eat on the patio. The pool and padding pool were great for the kids and were used almost every day even though they were v.v. cold in April.

The weather was good for the time of year, only a couple days of couldy / rain, the rest were lovely and warm (around 25 degrees).

Kalkan is a lovely town, although the walk back to the villa is hard work so we opted for a taxi back which cost 11 Lira. We frequented the Alibaba Roof Top Terrace restaurant on many occasions, the food was freshly prepared and of a very good quality (we were eating out for approx. 120 lira for 8 meals, such a bargain!). The old town is very pretty and the market had some very good bargains especially leather.

We will definitley be returning to the amazing Tas Villa.

“Fantastic family villa”
Reviewed July 31, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

We have just returned home from staying at Tas Villa in Kalkan, Turkey. The villa was very thoughtfully kitted out for a family and the owner was willing to supply pretty much anything we needed on our arrival. It took so much stress out of travelling with children and reduced the luggage too! Tracy lives nearby so can pop in if you need her. On our arrival I had arranged with Tracy to have the correct size of Pampers nappies waiting for me so I didn't have to pack half the suitcase with nappies. Tracy also offered to lend me her hand blender if I needed it to make food for my baby - as it was, I had bought lots of sachets of food with me for our baby but he'd only just started taking non-homemade food so it could have been a life saver. There's also a pushchair there if you don't want to bring your own, and Tracy can also provide car seats.

Within the villa there are 5 bedrooms - the main bedroom has a large alcove which houses a good sized cot. Imagine a walk in wardrobe with a cot at the end of it and you may get the idea. This means your baby can sleep in the same room as you but you have a little privacy as well. There is also an ensuite bathroom.

The sofa in the lounge is really comfy and there's a DVD player (with lots of DVDs provided) and satellite TV. There's kids cups, bowls and spoons, and even some toys for them to play with. There's even a foot step so that children can reach the sink in the bathroom - and a potty if you're in the middle of toilet training.

The pool was lovely and very much appreciated in the hot weather - although it's too deep to touch the floor which meant it was less easy to play with our 5 year old but this didn't prove to be a huge problem. It might have been if our daughter was more nervous in the water.

The whole villa is very child proof - there are no dangerous, exposed areas a child could fall - which I don't think can be said for all villas in Kalkan.

The welcome pack is thoughtfully kitted out with more than the bare essentials. And there's a water cooler machine in the kitchen which means you're not hauling lots of bottles of water back from the supermarket.

The ktichen has everything you're likely to need (and more) as well as a large dishwasher. If you have kids the washing machine is also invaluable to have at your disposal.

The only negative comment I have is the location of the villa - it is up a very high hill but having said that, virtually all villas in Kalkan are. If you were walking into town you'd need to cross a dual carriageway and if you're a nervous driver I'd suggest taking taxis everyhwere - which are affordable. What the location does offer you is a lovely view of Kalkan Bay from the roof terrace at the top of the building.

The villa was extremely clean and tidy.

We were very happy in the villa and would definitely consider going back again in future. We'd highly recommend it to anyone else.

“Just Lovely!”
Reviewed July 28, 2011 for a stay in October 2010

2011 will see our third trip to Kalkan, and our stay in Tas Villa. From the wonderful welcome from Tracey to the culinary delights of the town, it makes for a perfect holiday.

The villa is set in a quiet area in the mountains above the town and this seems to reduce the mossies, plus you get a little bit of breeze which is normally more than welcome! Walking into town is not oo bad but walking back up the very steep hill is not recommended for those who are unfit or have any impairment. Don't worry though as taxis are cheap, readily available and will always pick you up as well.

It has all mod-cons and you really want for nothing, and the wi-fi is invaluable too.The pool can be 'refreshing' at times but the loungers and the hammock in the garden are very comfortable.

Lovely views from the roof terrace where we spend a lot of the time.

“My home in Kalkan with sea view”
Reviewed July 14, 2011 for a stay in April 2011

Spacious well equipped Villa. Excellent for babies as Tracy has all the gear! Tracy is an absolute gem and will do all see can to help you and make your stay wonderful. In my many villa stays I have never encountered so much outside furniture! It is a downhill walk on mainly unmade roads to the main coastal road which has traffic lights and then cobbles to the village & sea. The boys did manage to push the babies back up the steep hill but taxis back are a better idea.
We were there for the Royal Wedding and saw it all on the house TV. It was hotter in the UK but the air conditioning was very effective at heating the house. Our main sadness was that the baby pool is as cold as the main pool and being off-season with unseasonal cold weather it was too cold to use. How we wished for a heatwave to be able to use the shade under the fruit trees in the small garden.
Whilst there, new rattan furniture arrived for the roof-top patio which has really good views of the town & sea as you are high enough to be above roof level of the properties downhill from Villa Tas. The roof top is provided with barbecue, sink, cutlery, plates etc. - amazing!
There is a mini shower room and toilet on the top floor, a huge family bathroom and an ensuite on the middle floor and a shower room on the ground floor. The top floor bedroom is best suited for older children.
You have to go up steps from the garage, which is off a very steep road or down steps from the front which is the main access. So the villa is unsuitable for people who find stairs difficult.
We enjoyed our stay very much and found Kalkan to be an interesting small town with many small shops to mooch around. There were lots of places to eat in, all of which were good. I think Sandals by the harbour was the overall favorite but we did not have a bad meal and nobody had any tummy trouble. One baby needed a doctor and antibiotics and that was easily arranged with Tracy's help. The doctor was excellent.
Kalkan attracts the yatching fratternity at times so expect nearly UK prices for restaurants.
This trip we visited Kas, the mountain village & trout village (where you get a very cheap meal) and Patara beach. We had previously done archaelogical sites.
Overall villa Kas is an excellent choice for a large family group.

Thank you so much for your detailed review. So glad you loved the villa and everything it had for your use. The April weather was out of character this year, the intense heat was a bit late starting, it's more than making up for it now though! I hope to welcome you back again sometime in the future.
