“Spectacular views”

We stayed for one week in this lovely villa which has spectacular views over Kalkan. Donna the owner was extremely helpful providing all the information we needed for our holiday. We loved sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine after an evening out in Kalkan. This was our first time to Turkey and we absolutely loved Kalkan with its narrow streets and rooftop restaurants and will definitely be visiting again (not too busy and not too quiet ).

We have no complaints at all about the villa it had everything we could possibly need - only problem - we just wished we had booked for longer!

Just as an extra note - Donna recommended Brave Tours for the transfer to and from the airport and they where 'first class ' very efficient and professional.

“Relaxing Surroundings....”

Four of us ( 2 x couples) spent 2 glorious weeks at Villa Palm. Donna the owner has ensured that the Villa caters for everyone's needs....the ground floor sitting room has games, DVD's, CD's etc to help enhance your relaxation.....
The kitchen covers every angle and supplies of dishes, cutlery etc are in abundance.
The bedrooms are bright and airy with sliding doors out to a communal balcony between both 1st floor bedrooms.....
The top floor is basically for any kids who may be in your party, plus a washing machine is available to give your holiday clothes a quick wash......
The views from the balconies over the bay are stunning......
If I were to offer a suggestion to Donna it would be to fit a small freezer somewhere on the top floor as the journeys up and down to replenish the quickly melting ice cubes took it's toll on us....
During our 2 week visit the weather was glorious therefore the outdoor pool and sun beds were used every day.......
If I am to offer any negatives to this review then they are outwith Donna's control.......we lost the use of the internet (we required this to keep in contact with family at home)....and it took a few days to rectify......and on occasion a local pack of friendly dogs chose to give us the dawn chorus which woke us before 6am......but a few extra glasses of wine at night helped block out their barking.....
The Villa is situated quite high up the hill therefore a 'steep' gradient walk is required 'should' you choose to walk it.......we chose to walk down , over the footbridge and into Kalkan itself...the walk took no more than 10 minutes.....BUT....always got a taxi back home....(cheap at the price....approx £4 or so)....
All in all a beautiful villa.......well stocked to cater for everyone's needs.......relaxing location and only a 10 minute downhill stroll into the town itself.......
Donna employs the use of an ex-pat (Gareth) to assist should you require anything.......and she leaves a local mobile with a Turkish Sim card for your use should you require it, we used it to order a takeaway one evening as our wee legs couldn't walk anymore......
A thoroughly relaxing enjoyable two weeks.........

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of your stay in Villa Palm, very much appreciated. Thanks also for your suggestion of a freezer on the top floor, we were actually just talking about putting a fridge up there to make life easy for pouring a glass or two of chilled wine while sitting on the roof terrace surveying our kingdom! Will get that organised. We look forward to welcoming you back to Villa Palm in the future.

“Beautiful lovingly maintained Villa with more than a hint of Cool”

My wife and I stayed here twice this year. The first time was in april/may when we had 3 glorious weeks and the second time was for 2 weeks in october. What can I say? This is a most elegant villa with the most stupendous views over the bay taking in both mouse and snake island. Donna has furnished the place with exceptional taste and gareth and the maintenance crew are there to make sure everything goes alright (take gareth a pork pie with egg and you'll have a friend for life!) in the event of mishaps, replacing drinking water, cleaning etc. Donna is exceptionally organised. You'll find lots of useful info carefully prepared and nicely presented in a folder - much better than anything we've seen before.
Rent it, enjoy it, love it. You'll be back.

Excellent and immediate "meet and greet" from Gareth, the villa manager, Generous welcome pack that more than tided us over until we went down to shops .The villa was immaculately clean, spacious bright and airy. It was very well equipped. I cannot think of anything that wasn't provided. Huge pool and patio area. We loved the outdoor seating and oversized umbrella Although the villa was fairly high up, the view over Kalkan was to die for and more than compensated, The location was peaceful and private. We have been to Kalkan 7 times now, always staying at different accommodation but we have already booked the Palm for next year as we feel we could not find anywhere better

“Fantastically luxurious and relaxing”

people found this review helpful

Our second year at Villa Palm, and by far the best property we have rented in 12 years of comming to Kalkan. The villa is positively luxurious, and the addition of two large sofas on the sun terrace made for a vey comfortable place to spend our evenings after delightful meals in Kalkan town. Being higher up the hill the Villa gets a refreshing breeze in the evening, a perfect compliment to the sunny days. this year our daughter came with us, and was completely bowled over by the quality and location of this villa.
