The villa is situated as other reviewers have said uphill from Kalkan centre around a 10 minute walk. we really liked the setting as it was quieter with a few lovely restaurants nearby which would be missed if you were nearer the town.
The villa itself in the main is great, the outside gardens are lovely, seating areas in the shade so relaxing. The pool is fantastic size, and pool and garden are tended to each day morning and evening. It is very private and being in the pool and gardens were what we enjoyed most. It is a pity the pool does not have a shallow end for those less confident or children, however, this is not the case but something to hold on to getting into the pool would alleviate nervousness of slipping. The only other criticism of the outside space has been mentioned in previous reviews, the outside lighting, sitting out in the evening or having a midnight dip is part of the appeal if a private villa but the lighting is a but bleak.
Inside the villa, the upstairs bedrooms are lovely and have extras such as hairdryer and adaptors, the shower room is gorgeous and the shower great water pressure. The roof terrace gives the best views and is a lovely way to end the day, however, it would be great to have seats up there rather than loungers or bar stools.
The stairs in the villa are also hard work, ok if you are young and fit but for children and others can feel a bit treacherous.
I realise my review so far may be a bit picky and all of what has been mentioned so far would not have put me iff the villa, however, the living and kitchen area did. The kitchen area is not fit for a family of four self catering for two weeks. There is virtually no food prep area, nowhere to store food other than fridge and expecting a barbecue to be the main oven I don't think is acceptable. Everything from the kettle to the toaster feels in miniature, however, the kitchen cupboards can only be reached by a giant, most of the equipment in the cupboards cannot be used unless you stand on a chair to get it!
I so wanted to love the villa, Teak was so helpful and efficient and the other reviews were great, but I am afraid my experience was very different. Loved Kalkan and this villa will have a special place in my heart for its garden, location and pool, but I am sorry to say I wont return
Second time to this fabulous villa and we loved it again. Forgot how comfortable and well equipped the house is. What really makes it special is the outdoor space and pool. The garden is a delight with plenty of comfortable seating in sun or shade. Pool area is really private and days spent there so relaxing. A sundowner or late night tipple whilst lounging on the day bed on the amazing roof terrace also hard to beat. Villa well located with some nice places to eat and drink nearby. We enjoyed the 15 minute walk into Kalkan and it's a cheap and easy taxi back. Teak is efficient and a pleasure to deal with. So easy. We hope to return.
Just lovely. We have booked rentals for the last 32 years all over the world & both thought that Ayisgi Bahcesi was the nicest place we have ever rented. Everything you could have wanted had been thought of. A real home from home.
Peaceful & cool. Lovely pool, gorgeous garden & a really comfortable bed made our holiday perfect.
Supermarket & a choice of places to eat within 5 minutes & a 10 minute walk down to the best beach club in the area (Kalamar Bay).
Really could not fault it.
We've had villas several times in Kalkan, but this was one of the most charming. It's a traditional, semi-detached stone house, with a lovely garden and pool. It's very close to several restaurants, bars and supermarkets, so you don't need a car. The downhill walk into town takes 15-20 minutes at a gentle stroll and the ride back in a taxi cost £4-5. It's a very relaxing house for a couple, though it would benefit from some more lighting outside to make full use of the garden.
Fantastic villa. Can't reccomend enough. Pool and garden were just the perfect place to enjoy hot lazy days. We loved the private garden, all the different seating areas, the size of the pool, the inflatable, the friendly / greedy sparrows, the very helpful gardener / poolman, the lovely neighbours and much more. Good choice of places nearby to eat and drink if you can't be bothered to walk into Kalkan. Loved the day bed on the roof terrace. Perfect for late night post dinner gin and tonics. Very comfy bed and great bathroom. Kalkan itself is great. Don't be put off going to Turkey. It was our first time but it won't be our last. People are so friendly and easy going and I felt very safe there. Can't wait to go back to this villa again. Only thing that would make it better would be a dishwasher.
