“Such a shame to have to leave...”
Reviewed September 12, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Our extended family takes an annual trip, usually around September, and usually within Europe. This year, we thought we'd try Kalkan on the recommendation of friends. We always stay in Villas that sleep between 8 and 10, and have never been disappointed.

Villa Surya in Kalkan certainly didn't disappoint either - in fact, it would be fair to say that it well exceeded all expectations. As soon as I get round to uploading a few photos from the camera, I shall have to post them, as the photos of the villa on here do not do it justice.

There is a garage, large enough to fit two cars beneath the property, which comes in very handy for keeping the cars cool in the scorching Turkish heat. Taking the stairs up to the ground floor of the property brings you straight to the patio and pool area, with the bbq and outside dining table located round the far side of the property.

The pool is beautiful, as are the utterly stunning views of Kalkan bay (lit up at night it is even more spectacular), and the mountains that surround it. The pool also has lights for the evening, which make the post 8pm dip even more appealing. The patio area is a lovely place to sit in the shade while others sun bathe or swim, if you so wish, or simply to wait while others cook the bbq. The pool, patio and outdoor areas are all maintained brilliantly, and have kept the "new look" without feeling clinical - it is just perfect.

Inside the Villa, the lounge/ living area is much larger than we had expected from the photos - there is a large corner sofa with enough space to comfortably sit 8 people, and all T.V facilities were in perfect working order with DVD player etc should you require it - there were also speakers for the iPods/ MP3 players. There is another table in the kitchen/ dining area - all open plan to the kitchen, which has a large enough fridge for all needs, and a handy freezer for ice. All of the appliances you would hope and need for are there. There is also wifi throughout which works perfectly apart from when on the top floor.

Upstairs there are 2 double rooms, one on each of the upper floors, and two twin rooms (the beds cannot be pushed together), likewise, one to each of the upper floors. On the very upper floor, the views are somewhat restricted to the pool by the "roofing/ columns" that stretch over the patio - but no bother, with the pool and view as it is, you wont want to spend much time on the balconies anyway - and this "roofing" adds something brilliant to the design of the building. The bedrooms are all well kept, linen all very clean, including the plentiful towels that are provided.

All in all, this is a gorgeous Villa in an absolutely perfect position - the walk to town is fine (about 10-15 mins on healthy legs) but the walk back can be a little tiresome after a few beers, as it is all up hill, but still, perfect do-able. Kalkan is a lovely place, with enough shops/ bars to keep you busy, but enough quiet spots too. Patara beach down the road is worth a visit, as is the impossibly stunning Saklikent Gorge, which really is worth a couple of hours of your day.

The only minor niggles with the Villa - hot water is not consistent, sometimes, although rarely, there was none, but most of the time, hot water is the last thing you want anyway - and the garage door would not open/ close as it should have, although I believe this was being fixed as we left.

So, apart from that, absoltely perfect, and I would dearly love to come back, hopefully for 2 weeks next time, as there is an awful lot to do along the coast here (take a days trip on a Gullet around Kalkan Bay, it is worth spending at least one day at sea!)...

Thank you very much!

“A jewel of a villa, brilliantly positioned overlooking Kalkan bay.”

The villa looked great on the website, but was even better once we experienced it. It is luxurious, well equipped and is being meticulously maintained by a responsive team of maintenance staff. Everything worked and we had a really relaxing and brilliant holiday with the villa as an ideal base.
We loved the infinity pool ; it was perfect for us all: the boys for races and for us to just relax in and enjoy the views directly over the bay.
There is an easy downhill walk into town and the harbour, with the return journeys being better by taxi (quick and cheap).
We experienced nothing but warmth and friendliness from the local people: service was fab and food was, almost without exception, of a very high standard.
We didn't do much exploring as we wanted to relax after a busy year, but we went by taxi to Patara beach twice, which was a hit with us all. I'd go back tomorrow if I could, and so would the children!!! Thanks to Shashi who sent loads of useful information in advance and provided a generous welcome pack.

“Absolutley Spectacular!”
Reviewed June 27, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

people found this review helpful

Let's start at the beginning and work our way to the end...

* Exceptional service answering all questions promptly. Very professional. Great directions to get to the Villa
* Simple, no hassle check in. We called the local contact once we reached the villa. He was there with the keys in under 60 seconds.
* Blown away by the view - Spectacular! All 4 bedrooms have the same view. It is brilliant!
* Furniture, Amenities are top notch. All new, all functional, quite luxurious. Can't see it in the photos, but the living area and the kitchen is quite large. That is one thing I was worried about before I saw the place in person. It's more than enough to comfortably hold 8+ people. If you include the additional dining area outside, you can host a small party for 25 odd guests :)
* Menus, Detailed instructions to operate gadgets, Extra bathroom on lower level, Cell Phone provided with a little credit - Super Helpful!
* Barbeque pit was used on multiple occasions!
* Location is pretty good when compared to a lot of the other villas. Short walk down hill (about 10 minutes) to get to the harbor area with all the shops and restaurants. Walk uphill would be tough for anyone though. We rented a car, so never really did walk. Cabs were plenty though, so should not be a problem. Supermarkets/grocers/butchers all located close by.
* The pool is 1.72 mts deep all throughout. No shallow area for wading. Jacuzzi makes up for that. The view from the infinity pool is breathtaking!
* Peaceful and quiet. At the same time, no isolated by any stretch of the imagination. Fabulous location.
* Flight of steps up from the road to reach the house. All rooms located on upper floors of the villa. People with disabilities or older people - this might prove to be a challenge.
If you are looking for a comfortable, luxurious villa with a spectacular view located close to the action in Kalkan, and you are on a budget, look no further. Shashi's Villa Surya fits that bill exactly!

Thanks Shashi for a fantastic time and for going the extra mile. Your villa was truly one of the highlights of a spectacular trip!

“Amazing villa Surya in Kalkan.”

On arrival at Villa Surya, we felt we had come to a most beautiful place as recommended by previous visitors to Kalkan. Most amazing location with view of Kalkan Bay surrounded by mountains. Villa Surya is extremely comfortable and relaxing with 5 star facilities including infinity pool and jacuzzi which are cleaned every day.
At the local restaurants we enjoyed fabulous Turkish food. A boat trip and a Hammam massage is highly recommended.
A day trip to nearby Gorge and Pattara beach is a must.
We will be going to Villa Surya again and most definitely will recommend to friends and family.

“Awesome!!!!!! Can't Wait To Go Back!!!!!!”
Reviewed November 12, 2011 for a stay in October 2011

person found this review helpful

Well what can I say, other than speechless! The villa is set in the most beautiful place ever. We arrived early hours of the morning, which was not a problem at all, smooth transfer from airport. The stunning views were breath taking even at that time in the morning, so we deceided to have an early breakfast outside by the pool when we arrived. The transfer was arranged by the owner Mr Ladva who was also very helpful with places to visit and eat. The villa is pure luxury, really spoilt with everything you need. Ive stayed in villas in different parts of the world, however this villa has everything you need to accomodate everyone of all ages, also this villa has a welcome pack, with essentials like milk and bread. Each room has a sea view and an en-suite, which are beautiful. I'm going back next year with friends and again with family. Im so taken back with the villa and location i'm not even bothering to go anywhere else, the weather even at the end October was hot everyday with not a cloud in sight, with sun loungers and a pool, didnt want to go to the beach. The town centre which is a short walk away had lots of resturants and a harbour for boat trips, resturants in Kalkan which served lovely fresh food, and were very accomodating if you wished to change anything from the menus, didnt have a bad meal in Kalkan, and very reasonably priced. Went on a couple of boat trips, enjoyed very much and again the food served on the boats is fantastic. All I can say is, I cant wait to go back.
