We enjoyed a fantastic 2 week holiday here, which was in no small part due to this wonderful villa. The owner looked out for us at every stage with great advice and assistance right from the very first contact.
As everyone says, the villa is exactly as described - which is to say beautifully furnished, comfortable and configured for a very relaxing stay. To me it is the little things such as reliable wifi and a great stereo that makes the difference and this, combined with its location made for a wonderful stay.

“Kismet means fate”
Reviewed July 3, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We have returned once more to this perfect and homely villa in Kalkan. The villa is situated in a perfect location only ten minutes walk into town. The road outside the villa has been recently resurfaced which is great. There is a small restaurant just three minutes from the villa called our home, authentic and freshly made food utterly fabulous.
The villa itself is just fantastic you will find the pool area totally private with plenty of seating areas should you wish to escape the heat of the day. We spent most of week lying on the lilo's in the pool.
The interior of the vill has exquisite furnishings and the owners have obviously spent a lot of time and effort in choosing the pieces. The kitchen area has everything you require to cook a meal even some turkish cookery books should you wish to experiment. There is also a lovely living area to relax with a book along with an extremely large sofa with huge cushions that you sink into.
Each bedroom has extremely comfortable beds and en-suite bathrooms with powerful showers and spectacular sea views. The top bedroom is my favourite as it has two balconies to either lie out under the twinkling stars or view all the lights of Kalkan town.
The town itself is a maze of cobblestone streets with fantastic restaurants, too many to visit in just one week. You can browse to your hearts content in the shops without any hassle whatsoever.
The people of Kalkan are so friendly and obliging, nothing is. Problem and if it not on the menu just ask.
To sum up Villa Kismet is not difficult but words cannot describe how my friends and I feel a out it all I can say is come and experience it as we did and return year after year

So pleased you all had a great holiday! Thank you very much for the positive review.
The daily bread is a real treat from Irfan, and am happy to tell you that the roads around the villa are all tarmacked now, quite a change after many years.

“Immaculate Villa, Great Pool Area, 10-15mins walk to town”
Reviewed June 11, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Villa Kismet is a superb holiday home. Exceptionally clean, well kept & wonderfully presented. All bedrooms are of a very good size with great views of Kalkan Bay...

Best area of the villa would be the pool area, spacious and has the sun all day. The pool itself was a lot warmer than we expected - all used it many times each day.

We traveled with a small child and although would love to visit the villa again, we wouldn't with a small child as there are significant steps in and out of the villa and the road directly outside the property is by no means buggy friendly! (although Gillie has said the Turkish authorities may be addressing this in the future)

The walk into town is approx 10-15mins downhill but we'd strongly recommend a taxi back 'home' up the hill each time (approx £4 1 way)

Gillie made the booking process exceptionally straightforward and was a pleasure to deal with - she is very efficient. Karyn in Kalkan was very helpful especially regarding the check out time which was really appreciated.

I would strongly recommend this villa to couples, groups of friends or families without young children under 3/4 yr old...

Thank you so much for the great review, am very pleased all went well and you had a lovely time. Funnily enough, we have had the same families with babies and then toddlers coming year after year,- hence the much used high chair and cot! but of course as your wife is expecting again and you have a tiny toddler the steps will have felt much harder. Good news is the road is now tarmacked after many many years as a semi rough road, so its now fine for buggies and shoes of all kinds!
We hope we can welcome you again another year to Villa Kismet.
