We have had a wonderful stay in Likya Gardens. Everyone is kind and relaxed and helpful. The atmosphere breathes ease with stones and wood and beautifully decorated rooms. Breakfast brought fresh tomatoes, rocket and cucumbers, cold melon, a variety of cheeses, pancakes, butter with honey, olives, fresh bread, and delicious coffee. Our table was directly over the water and some nights there is a love jazz trio.
Jane organized everything via whatsapp which made the booking very simple and safe. Thank you so much for helping us have a wonderful vacation. We will be in touch as soon as we can get away from Rome again.

Comment: Dear Jane.
Thank you for a splendid stay In Villa Ruzgar.
We were 5 adults staying there and was ample room for everyone. Villa and pool was clean, although the fridge wasn't working when we arrived. But soon rectified.
I found it very strange that there was no welcome pack. (Lucky we arrived in the afternoon and not at night) Plus there were no fresh toilet rolls.. just half used ones.. and 2 bathrooms with none! Disappointed that we never got a change of bath towels in the week we were there.. But there were ample pool towels.
All in all it was a lovely villa.
We’ve just returned from a wonderful fortnight at The Stone House Villa in Kalkan. The Villa was immaculate, beautifully decorated and furnished throughout and perfect for our family. The pool and exterior was excellent with plenty of shade if you needed to escape the midday sun. Transfers arranged by Fabulous Kalkan were comfortable and reasonably priced. Kalkan itself is beautiful and a great family destination, plenty of activities, but a laid back pace of life too. One great improvement since our previous visit (8 years ago) is the supermarket just 2 minutes from the villa, excellent prices and good range of local foods and produce. We very rarely visit the same place more than once, however for the Stone House Villa we will definitely make an exception. Looking forward to returning soon. Booking with Fabulous Kalkan was simple and well organised. Come visit Kalkan, you won’t be disappointed.
Myself and family have just returned back from two weeks at Villa Gemelli in Kalkan and had the most wonderful time. The trip had been organised by Jane which we found most helpful throughout the process and I could not recommend her services more highly. We will definately be booking again through Fabulous Kalkan. Thanks Jane for all your help. Peter
We had a fabulous time in Villa Turtle. It was very comfortable, clean and everything worked. (Well apart from the internet being a bit intermittent, but who needs it when you are on holiday!?) We had the bedroom next to the pool which was perfect for us as we wake early so could roll out of bed and sit by the pool in the mornings taking in the fabulous view! Khan was very helpful and the man who cleaned the pool was able to bring us bread, eggs and milk when we asked for it.
Just one thing that people should be made aware of is that if one has any trouble with mobility the villa would not be very suitable due to the steep road, and all the stairs everywhere.
I would highly recommend Fabulous Kalkan Villas. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.
We stayed in Villa 013VL, a 5 bed villa off the Kalamar Road. We were a party of 10 and have to say that every one of us were incredibly impressed by the standard of this beautiful villa. The interior is immaculate and has everything you could need for the holiday – including beach towels, which was a pleasant surprise! The pool is fabulous (and unusual) and cleaned every day. The excellent rep called a number of times during our stay and resolved quickly and efficiently the minor issue we had. The location of the villa is excellent and within easy walking distance of everything. The only improvement I feel could be made is bigger indoor/outdoor dining tables. They each only seat 8 – which we found odd for a villa that sleeps 10!!! We used KLR/Adda tours for transfers and excursions and found them to be excellent in all respects. We would love to return to Kalkan as we think it is by far one of the nicest places we have ever been and would without hesitation use KLR again. Great holiday!!

We have just returned from an idyllic stay at Villa 010P. We have booked through Luxury Kalkan Rentals before and, as always, everything was extremely smoothly organised – from our transfer from Dalaman, to our hire car and our contact, Mehmet, in Kalkan who was always available but didn’t disturb us. The villa was fabulous both inside and out with a beautiful infinity pool and amazing views. Rooms were spacious, air conditioned and very stylish. The downstairs space was cool and airy with a well stocked kitchen. Kalkan remains so friendly with an exceptional number of superb restaurants. There are a number of good places to eat which are walkable down the hill from the villa and a vast range a short drive further into town. Loved it all including a trip to the amazing Patara Beach only twenty minutes down the road.

Just wanted to say a quick thank you for a truly amazing holiday in Kalkan. In brief:
We have recently just returned back from a fabulous holiday in Kalkan. This being our first holiday in Turkey. We stayed in Villa Koru ( 003VK). Our party was made up of two adults and my three daughters 8,14 and 17. The Villa was everything we wanted it to be, nice pool ( no shallow end), lots of space, air con every where (which in 40 degree heat is an absolute must), plenty of facilities, washing machine, dishwasher etc etc. The maintenance/ cleaning people were extremely friendly and helpful, the exterior and pool area were cleaned every day with bed change and internal clean twice a week. They even lent the girls some Lilo’s and other inflatables for the pool!! We arranged transfers through Fabulous Kalkan and were very pleased that we had. On arrival we were collected in a Merceces Vito with full air con, wifi and iPod connections etc. Transfers were, as advertised about an hour and a half and were faultless on both journeys.
Kalkan is an awesome place, the people are fantastic, scenery is outstanding and we didn’t have a bad meal in the whole two weeks. We were made to feel special wherever we went.
The Villa is a small cab trip to Kalkan (£3). You can walk but be warned the hill is a heart stopper! Samira resort is close by where you can use their facilities and it was very handy for breakfast/ lunch etc They had an authentic Turkish night on a Thursday and it was great value for money and well worth attending.
We hired a car for 5 days, very cheap and worth while if you want to venture a bit further a field. Grab yourselves a boat trip while here, they seem at first a little expensive but absolutely worth every penny. We were treated like kings and queens all day.
We couldn’t fault our whole experience in Kalkan and will most definitely be returning.
Once again thanks to Jane and the FK team, thoroughly recommended.

Thank you, the villas was lovely & we hope to visit Kalkan again.
We stayed at Villa Kismet (023BE) in July 2012 and would definitely recommend it. It is just on the edge of the old town, literally 5 minutes walk to the centre of the old town and 5 minutes down the small beach, it would in fact be hard to find a more convenient location (no need for cabs). It has excellent views from all rooms, the roof terrace and the pool terrace.
The owners actually live in a small cottage just next door to the villa and are very friendly and on hand if needed but otherwise you would not really notice they are there. The pool is a decent size but does not have a shallow end, the water was warm and clean plus there were floats etc. for our use.
The air conditioning worked in all the rooms without any problems as did the wi-fi, there are 3 or 4 villas close by but there was little noise (no problems with music from bars either).
In short this is a great villa in an excellent location.
I did spend at least a month searching for villas in Kalkan and the outlying areas on the web but once we arrived saw the Villa and how convenient it was for everything I was glad I took the time to find it.
Booking was hassle free booking as were the transfers (even though our flight was an hour late) which were arranged through LKR.

Second summer holiday in Kalkan. Second time with Luxury Kalkan Rentals. Second time being incredibly well looked after by Jane and Dali.
This time our party (dad + 22 yr old son + 18 yr old daughter) stayed in Villa Gemelli – just off Kalamar Rd and not far from Elixir Hotel.
The villa is beautiful and very well appointed. Masses of space around the pool – plenty of opportunities to barbecue and eat al fresco – so never felt at all cramped or unable to spread out and relax. The pool itself and jacuzzi + outdoor shower mean you will always be able to cool off in the blistering heat.
The interior is very well thought out and massive fridge, gas hob and d/w and washing machine all welcome amenities. No shortage of aircon units and cd player, dvd player and satellite tv meant we had plenty of entertainment options in the evening on the occasions we ate chez nous.
The balcony on the bedroom on 1st floor is really useful and the rood terrace is spectacular for watching sunsets and stars and having a cheeky aperetivo!
We’d recommend the villa to families, small groups of friends who want enough space so they’re not on top of one another all the time and like cooking the off evening meal. It is an easy walk into town for bars, restaurants, shopping – we always got a cab back which is £4.
The villa has beautiful bougainvillea and a range of potted plants which add to its attractiveness. It is also very quiet and undisturbed by road noise.
Jane and Dali at Luxury Kalkan rentals are, as always, attentive and keen to make sure you have no wrinkles to spoil your holiday. Very helpful in arranging excursions or beach clubs, etc.
We stayed at villa 001JV at the end of August for two weeks and had a fantastic holiday. The villa was beautiful and very spacious – the roof terrace was perfect for drinks before heading off for dinner. This is our second year in Kalkan and we found plenty of new things to do and places to eat, including La Sera just round the corner from the villa and Ada fish restaurant just past Kaputas beach on the road to Kas – choose your fish from the day’s catch and have it perfectly cooked over an olive wood fire. Delicious! We’ll be back next year.
Ann Tucek 15/09/2012
We were very impressed with how helpful Jane dealt with our booking, answering all our questions right up until we got on the plane. Once we arrived we were never disappointed! Our villa 002B was stunning and we all had an amazing time in Kalkan. Billy, the owner of our villa was always at hand to help us … from delivering at corkscrew to helping us immediately when we had a bump in the hired car!! Dali popped over to give us local advise and Adem and his family treated us like royalty aboard his beautiful gulet. All in all, we had a holiday full of wonderful memories that we will have for many years to come. Thanks to all involved!

“My family and I have just returned from a wonderful holiday in Kalkan. The villa we rented through KLR was fantastic with great views of the resort which is lovely and tranquil with plenty of high quality restaurants. The reps for the company were always on hand in case we needed them and gave some great suggestions on activities and places to visit. Would definately go back”. Lara Barrett
Lara Barrett 12/09/2012
Arrived home yesterday afternoon, after an absolutely fabulous holiday in your villa. I am very envious of you – you have a lovely home. Everything you need – and more. We ventured out very little, especially in the daytime as the weather was HOT., so we remained at the villa and chilled. We BBQ’d many times, and took great advantage of the Ali Baba takeaway, which was especially good., so we spent most evenings outside in your glorious comfy seating area, few drinks (!) playing cards, and enjoying the ambience your villa allowed. We did venture out in the evenings a few times, and had some very good meals, but we looked forward to getting back and having a midnight swim.
Dali and Matt were extremely helpful, and the transfers were fantastic. Congratulations on your recent marriage, and have a fab reception in August.
We had two cats visit, and only saw your dog once. The black and white cat ‘boo boo’ came round, but was seen off by a very pregnant ginger cat, (I think she is blind in one eye). I think they had been fighting, as the ginger cat was sporting some very nasty cuts. Boo boo had a cut along her nose, but that soon healed. Although we left food out for them, the ginger one was under the impression that Villa Gemelli was her home…..so I do hope when you return, your boo boo returns also.
Hopefully, some time in the future we may all return to Kalkan, and I would love this to be your home.
Thank you again Jane. And, all the best to you and your family.

Jane supported me to find guests for my villa rental in Kalkan. She successfully manages the client’s trip to Kalkan and carefully organized all details considering both the client’s and the villa owner’s needs. She informed me periodically in each step. Ezra 2011

Jane did a great job organizing our trip and selecting the right place for us for a good price.
I would recommend Jane to everyone without any doubt.
Keep up the great work Jane!

Jane did an excellent job of assisting us in securing accommodation in Kalkan. Everything worked very well – including transfers from Dalaman to getting settled in the villa and ensuring that we had what we needed. She consistently responded promptly to my questions and was very informative.” April 12, 2012 Neil Horwood

We will definately recommend “Kalkan luxury rentals” to our freinds as a very professional company and specifically “002KL”. Could you forward our thanks to the owners or the use of their beautifull villa and say that we found the services of Yussef too be a great help and that we will no doubt look o rent again” Spinks May 2009.

“It was our first time to Turkey and we will definately return, especially to Kalkan and that villa!! The position up in the mountains was fantastic, with superb sunsets every night. The pool was ideal for the our kids and us adults!! We visited a few different beaches, the sea must be the best I’ve ever been in, so clear and perfect temperature. We didn’t want to come home! Thank you for helping me organise a very successful holiday.” Gill, Villa 022B. 20 Jul 2009

“Just to let you know that we had a fantastic time in Kalkan. Everything ran like clockwork and the villa was exactly as shown on your website. We were delighted by everything. including the smooth transfer from the airport to the villa and return. On behalf of myself and my family I would like to thank you for being so helpful and thus making our visit to Turkey perfect from start to finish. We will definitely be re-visiting.” Jill. 6 Jul 2009
Jill and Family 20/02/2012
“Just wanted to say thankyou very much for organising the villa for us in Kalkan and all the help you gave us pre booking, we had a really good relaxing time & the car worked out fine. The villa was perfect for what we needed and in a great position. We really enjoyed the selection of restaurants and had a great meal at Sandal on our last night using your 20% voucher which helped a lot. We tended to just chill for the week, although we did get to visit Xanthos and the Saklikent Gorge, with a couple of evening drives into the mountains and to Patara.
Thanks again and good luck for the season ahead.

“We had a great time in Kalkan, lazing around the old harbour town, with lots of roof top terrace lunches and dinners. The food is exceptional, and the Turkish especially know how to cook meats. Kalkan is quaint, tranquil and relaxing, with the absence of the hordes of tourists, hawkers and hustlers, though the local prices firmly reflect this. The villa was excellent. The views are amazing. Well worth another visit in the very near future, inshallah!!” Taric, June 2010

“Hi , Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you for organising the most amazing holiday ever. The villa was stunning and views amazing. It was just as i expected and more.

“Our stay at the 001WL was impeccable. The Villa is stunning, modern, very comfortable and ideal for a large group. From booking, through our stay and after, KLR… team made for an unforgettable vacation. Highly recommended.”

Family Becker 20/02/2012
“We were so impressed with 001WL from it’s luxurious interiors to it’s phenomenal exterior spaces. It worked perfectly for the three families, allowing us privacy when we needed it and a party space when we needed that. Everything was catered for and we were looked after wonderfully by the team managing the property. Quite frankly we felt like rock stars!! We loved it so much, we preferred to stay in and dine rather than leave our gorgeous surroundings – having a caterer in for a typically Turkish meal was especially good but the barbeque and bar areas around the pool were hard to surpass in the restaurants of Kalkan, as great as they were.” S. Basey 2010
Family Basey 20/02/2012
Got home last night. Wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our time in Turkey. All of the arrangements were seamless and went off without a hitch. Adda Tours was wonderful to work with as well. Even though I mistakenly scheduled our transfer and car rental a day later than we arrived (all my fault) Adda stepped right up and helped us out and came to get us in Dalaman with practically no notice.
We absolutely loved the villa. It was perfect and so cozy for us.
We hope to get back to Turkey some day during summer months and would love to be able to rent the villa again from you. Meanwhile we will be sure to recommend your services to our friends.
We plan to vacation in Europe in the future, so if your services extend to others please let us know.
Thanks again for all your help.
Maria Holloway 09/01/2012
We have just returned from Dalkiran apartments (001DA) on the Kalamar Road, and had a wonderful holiday. This was our fifth time in Kalkan, and have to say these were the best apartments in terms of location, cleanliness and facilities. The pool area was cleaned daily, and we had sole use of it for the whole two weeks, so no need for a private pool!! So handy having Bread & More on our doorstep, and the food and service provided by the staff there was excellent.
My only criticism, or should I say recommendation, would be to put mirrors in the bedrooms, as the only ones were in the bathrooms. Didn’t in any way affect our great holiday though, and I’m sure we’ll be returning next year.
Julie Edge 19/09/2011
Stayed in Kalkan at a nice villa with it’s own pool, a short walk from the centre of Kalkan.
Dali and Jane were extremely solicitous and keen to ensure we all had a great stay in Kalkan and nothing was too much trouble for them. As an example: there was no dvd player at the villa, but Dali (KLR’s representative in Kalkan) lent us his own DVD player and set it up for us. Also provided help with wireless set up and numerous other small services that really made us feel well looked after and that if anything went wrong it would be sorted out quickly and efficiently. We would have no hesitation in booking with KLR again.
We stayed at Villa Gemelli – 005VG – for one week and now we all wish it would have been a month! It was great, a cosy and pleasant place, nice rooms, great terraces, perfect garden, excellent pool.
Dalik was a competent advisor on what to visit and where to eat and a pleasant almost invisible hepful assistant.
We most probably will go there again!
We stayed at Palm 235 Patara Prince Resort Kalkan and this villa was absolutely fabulous. The service Kalkan luxury Rentals offered was second to none with them giving us up to date details at every opportunity. They booked us a boat trip which was really great and also booked for a chef and waiter to come into our villa one evening to cook a meal for my husband and myself. This was delightful both the food and the service absolutely great. I would certainly recommend Kalkan Luxury Rentals to friends and family and would also use them again.
Heather Welsh 06/09/2011
We recently stayed in The Stone House Villa (011SH) in Kalkan. Jane at Kalkan Luxury Rentals recommended it and it most certainly did not disappoint. It was beautiful with fantastic views over the bay which could be seen whilst relaxing in the infinity pool. The pool was deep, clean and looked beautiful when lit up at night. The villa itself was furnished very attractively and we particularly like the sofas and curtains outside which were great to relax/read in the shade. The kitchen had every type of utensil, crockery and cutlery needed to self cater. We were visited by Dali and Hamza the reps who were easily accessible and helped out with a range of information including car hire which is essential as the villa is quite high up above the town of Kalkan. We liked this as it was quiet and peaceful yet only minutes from the beautiful town with its fab shops and restaurants. All in all, Stone House villa is a wonderful place to stay, the company are extremely helpful both in the UK and in Turkey and we found Kalkan so romantic that we got engaged there!!
Susanne Jenner 01/09/2011
we had a fantastic holiday in kalkan .The villa we stayed in was 021sv it slept 12 .It was gorgeous,fully equipped and the views were stunning.
Kalkan was beautiful, locals were very friendly and the food was excellent. I will be using kalkan luxury rentals again and i will highly recommend them to all of my friends.
Jacqui Heaton 30/08/2011
Although we have stayed in Kalkan several times before, this was the first time we had booked through Kalkan Luxury Rentals. On our arrival at villa 029id, we were stunned by the wonderful view over the bay from the terrace and infinity pool. The villa was very comfortable and exactly as described and the one or two short-comings were quickly resolved by Jane. We look forward to returning next year and hopefully booking through KLR.
Colin Taylor 30/08/2011
2nd time of returning to Kalkan, which speaks for itself. 1st time of using KLR and slightly disappointed on a few points. No welcome pack, not enough suns beds for our party of 6, no BBQ as promised. When we asked about these to various “on site” personal no one seemed to want to take responsibility. However non of these spoilt what was a great holiday and villa. (007VV)
Stanier Party 30/08/2011
We stayed in villa 001jv for nearly four weeks in July/August 2011. The villa was fantastic and very family friendly too. Great location about 1km outside of Kalkan. Plenty of shops and cafes nearby too including in particular Hotel Elixir [nice bar, good food, large screen for football/sport] and Cafe Vita which we frequented a number of times and which was very affordable. The villa is part of a wider complex which also includes a shared swimming pool which includes a small children’s pool which was ideal when our kids wanted a break from the villa’s own pool. All told a very enjoyable holiday in a very nice villa which we would be happy to recommend.
Mark Hodgson 30/08/2011
Party of 6 adults and 4 children atayed at Villa reference 024oz – August 2011. The villa is quiet and ideally located on the edge of the old town making it a relatively easy stroll to the restaurants and gifts shops. The building itslef was clean,well equipped and well furnished. The main public rooms and all but one of the bedrooms is equipped with AC – which is definately needed during the summer. The booking process and the airport tramsfers went well and I would definately reccomend Kalkan Luxury rentals.
Derek Youds 30/08/2011
My husband, sister & brother-in-law and myself stayed at villa .001vk at the end of June. This villa was absolutely perfect – spotlessly clean, care hamper on arrival, pool cleaned daily, loads of info on the villa itself and the resort. It is also pretty close to the town – about a 5 minute walk, perfect!
I had spoken to Jane before booking, telling her our requirments etc and the advice she gave was spot on. Booking process was easy, the pre-booked taxi was waiting for us at the airport and the driver, Ahmed, was great!!
The water tank was empty when we arrived but this was sorted out very quickly by the management company – nothing is too much trouble for them. The pool at the villa was fantastic, as was the outside eating areas and bbq.
All in all we had a wonderful time here and cannot wait to go back. We will definitely be using Jane again for our return trip.
Jane – thank you so much for your help and for making out holiday one to remember.
Dina Oppizio-Scott 30/08/2011
Stayed at villa oo2DK, in August 2011, after having stayed May 2010. We had the most fab holiday both times. The villa was amazing, Kalkan is just a great place and kalkan luxury did their upmost to make our holiday the best. A holiday well worth it’s price . Halil family august 2011
