This was the best villa we've ever stayed in. Set up on the hill, about 10mins walk from town the Round House was a beautiful getaway.
My partner and I stayed here for 2weeks at the beginning of September. We had SO MANY incredible memories here, I don't know where to start! Here are some headlines:
From the pool to the master bedroom balcony and even the top floor roof terrace, the views over the bay are priceless. You wake up to them and go to sleep to them. Heaven.
A perfect size, accessed by the living room and he kitchen. The sun hits the pool all day from early morning until about 3pm. Then if you really want to continue to bask, you can make your way to the roof terrace for early evening sun.
All modern and clean with air con. The master bedroom has a dressing room and each one has access to the balcony
THE CATS ANS DOGS
I know animals aren't for everyone and for anyone that doesn't fancy seeing them, you can always keep them out - but we genuinely loved them. The pool guy - Irfan, told us their names and they became part of our holiday. They would run towards us as we came home each day, wagging their tails and begging for belly rubs! They are all technically 'street animals ' but have been vaccinated, neutered and tagged.
The man that looks after the pool is a wonderful guy. He visits every .Morning and evening and bring spread if you like. We became firm friends with him during our two weeks and can't wait to come back!
Thanks to the owners for a holiday or a life time xxx
If you want a holiday in bland box that could be found anywhere, don't go to the Round House Villa, but if you want a place that on every turn makes you feel you are in Turkey, that is comfortable with everything you could need to make you feel at home, then this is the place for you.
We had a fantastic week. Great position. Our third visit and will be returning.....
Villa Roundhouse is really beautiful. It's huge, with plenty of space for our family of four (with two older teenagers) to chill out and relax. It's a home, rather than just a holiday let, and is really well equipped and features some really lovely antiques.
The villa is set on the hill above Kalkan, about five minutes up from the market. Shops and restaurants are 5-10 minutes away, though it's a steep hill, so a taxi back up is worthwhile and costs about £3.
Being higher up has benefits, with fantastic views all round, particularly lovely from the bedrooms and kitchen. Outside there's a large pool, a summerhouse and plenty of outdoor space, with six really comfortable sun loungers and three massive umbrellas. All very cool. Oh, and a very efficient, large BBQ which we made good use of. Villa Roundhouse is so lovely and relaxing, you do tend to think, "hey let's have a glass of wine and cook outside, rather than noodling into town".
Special mention must go to the brilliant gardener Irfan, who has made the place look so gorgeous. He's also a saint to the local cat and dog population, feeding many of them every day on his rounds. Hence there's plenty of animals around, which my guys all adored. Apparently the cats get new names with each set of visitors.
Would recommend, and will definitely be back. We loved it.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Kalkan, relaxing in the villa and around the beautiful pool and gardens. Very well-equipped and maintained, with a gardener/handiman visiting every day who also re-bulbed a couple of lights for us - and brought fresh bread every morning.
The booking went smoothly for the exact times we wanted.
A light airy spacious property with far reaching views over the bay.
It's furnished nicely with authentic Turkish decor, which we liked.
Particularly impressed with the timber beamed upper bedroom which has a large terraced area for sunbathing.
The pool was larger and deeper than we expected, great for cooling off
it's equipped .to a very high standard, particularly the kitchen which appears to have everything you would ever need .
I hope to book again next year,there's a lot more exploring to be done in and around Kalkan.
Many Thaks for a wonderful stay
This was our third holiday in kalkan and our second stay in The Roundhouse, and I'm pleased to say that the villa remains the same. Very beautiful, immaculate and of course a beautiful setting overlooking Kalkan. I travelled with my partner and friends and we stayed in the the villa for one week during the middle of June 2014. The pool area is fabulous and well maintained my Arfan who cleans it every morning and brings us fresh bread. He also comes up to the villa twice a day and feeds the local friends street animals the cats and dogs which are adorable., especially Lottie the cat who if I could have gotten away with it brought her home with me. There are three bedrooms beautifully decorated with en suites, spacious living room and kitchen, also there summer house is perfect for getting away from the heat of the day. The villa is set quite high up overlooking Kalkan which makes the views spectacular especially from the roof terrace, but may cause a problem with anyone with mobility problems and kalkan is quite hilly. The only one thing I would like to add that over the last twelve months quite a lot building work has taken place and a lot of new villas and hotels have sprouted up in a short space of time, which I hope the local government will monitor as I'm afraid the Kalkan will loose that unspoilt charm if it was to continue. Also due to advertisement by our national newspapers we have noticed that Kalkan was very much a lot busier than our last two visits and it's now looking like Kalkan our best kept secret is no longer the case.
Stayed here in July with our three teenagers. As per the other reviews, it is a lovely villa, very well equipped, three very comfortable en suite bedrooms all with air con. The villa has a larger than average pool - great for a game of water polo. Patio and terrace by the pool with little Turkish summer house - very relaxing to sit there on a warm evening. The villa is up a steep hill, but that does mean you get the breeze and the views. 5 mins drive from supermarkets, all very convenient. Lots of cats and dogs, which was an advantage to our teenagers who loved playing with them. Staff were great, very helpful without being intrusive. Also the owner was easy to contact, booking very easy. This was our first time in Turkey, we loved it. Kalkan was a great base, lots of excellent historical sites in short drive - Patara was amazing, also the beach. Would certainly recommend this villa, and we intend to come back, a week is not long enough.
