Your well-earned holiday is important to you and we take this responsibility seriously, we endeavour to provide you with a comfortable and relaxing environment for you to enjoy your time in Kalkan and Villa Katmar. Thankfully our past guests agree with us and these are some of the comments they have left about the villa and Kalkan. November 2010 - Meg and Peter We had the most wonderful time, the villa was perfect. It had everything we needed, and so beautifully laid out. The pool was so clean and clear, we really were able to relax completely and spent the first three days just sitting in the sunshine, it was so warm and very peaceful. We loved Turkey, Kalkan and the Turkish people. All the meals we had were served in very attractive ways and so tasty. We went out on a boat one day and swam in the sea had a mud bath and again the food was superb. Thank you for your all your very helpful emails and again thank you for the lovely villa. September 2010 – Kathy, Jack, Hanna and Freddie Thank you so much for a great holiday. We had a wonderful time in Kalkan and in your villa - thank you so much. The town was such fun and the people welcoming, food great and not so expensive. Your management company and transfer arrangements perfect. Will definitely return to Kalkan and Villa Katmar. August 2010 - Sheila, Bob, Martin, Fiona, Fearhal, Dan, Eliza and Brunnagh All of us have had an amazing time in this wonderful villa, it’s truly faultless. Kalkan is buzzing, lively and vibrant without being over the top. The people here are so friendly and kind. There are many activities to recommend. You will not fail have a great holiday here. We will definitely be back to this villa. August 2010 - Mike , Jo, Graeme, Lynn, Katie, Lucie, Cameron We have had a fabulous holiday in Kalkan. Our first time in Turkey, our second will be in October (adults only), We celebrated Katies 18th birthday at ‘Akin’ – Pizza and Pasta Restaurant. They supplied balloons/fireworks and a cake to make it a meal to remember. The manager was excellent with card and rope tricks and even had you dancing in the street. The villa was fantastic- Air conditioning a must so thank you, water machine and ice cube maker were a god send. Thanks again for all your help in making it a holiday to remember. July 2010 - Monique and Pete Such a gem of a villa you have, too big for just the two of us, we will bring friends next time. We loved Kalkan; the people are so friendly and helpful. Our favourite dinner was at Iso’s Kitchen, great food, great hospitality, thank you for the tip! Had a superb day out on the PinaX lots of swimming spots to explore and the food was fab. Mahal beach restaurant was a special treat, so peaceful, lovely for that special night out, London prices and food not as good as town but we loved it for a treat. Spent a couple of afternoons at Yali beach club, easy to get to from town, very chilled and good swimming. We spent many hours here at the villa relaxing and doing very little, Kaputas beach was great for a swim, I much preferred this to Patara Beach, which was only OK, and we explored the ruins instead of staying on the beach Thank you for a wonderful holiday all the little touches of the villa made it just perfect. Look forward to booking our next visit very soon. June 2010 - The Swaine Family Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at villa Katmar. Villa extremely well kitted out, water cooler & ice machine very good. Pool great. We had 3 BBQ’s during the 2 weeks. Kalkan is a lovely town; locals very friendly and so may restaurants to choose from – all well. This is our 3rd time with Owners Direct (Spain and Croatia before) but this was definitely the best, so thanks again May 2010 - The Yates Family The villa is very well equipped and plenty of space. We have enjoyed lots of barbecues and especially appreciated the barbecue being cleaned and ready to use the next day (thank you Camiel). Turkish people are very friendly and really want you to enjoy their country. We had a great holiday. Thanks very much. 10 May 2010 - Phil, Amy and Willow What a wonderful holiday…our first with our baby girl willow. The villa is just perfect and the people are so friendly and adore babies (willow has many friends) Thank you so much for all your help and info throughout. The villa and holiday were better than we'd expected. Just brilliant. August 2009 - Fay We really have had the best time! The villa is superb with everything you could want and is so clean. We will definitely return to Kalkan! .August 2009 – The Wallace Family Time has just flown by since we returned from Turkey and we are left with lovely but distant memories of Kalkan and Villa Katmar – even my light tan is fading rapidly with this dreadful weather back in England. We really did love Villa Katmar and found it to be by far the best accommodation we have had in Kalkan in 5 years. There was so much space and lots of nooks and crannies so we all had space to either hide away and read in, or relax. It is really difficult to pin your hopes on a place to stay when you have just less than 2 weeks holiday in the whole year, but Villa Katmar lived up to ALL our expectations. The villa was spacious, airy and beautifully decorated in the local Turkish style and the facilities were excellent. The twice weekly woman cleaners were top class and very friendly. The television and wonderful sound system were much appreciated, and it was a nice touch to have some pre- recorded DVDs to watch. Having bread delivered daily was a real bonus and – not only was it delicious; it saved us from trekking to a shop every day. The other good thing was the water cooler, which was on-tap, lasted a long time and cheaper than buying lots of smaller bottles. Having hairdryers, adaptors, and iron and board available was really nice, as were pool towels. The pool itself was fantastic (how I miss my daily swims!) and it was lovely to have some greenery, trees and plants, and plenty of shade available too, a real bonus. The kitchen was well stocked. We loved the very top balcony area with comfortable settees and a fab view. It was my favourite. Ian liked the lower garden area! We would not hesitate to recommend Villa Katmar to anyone else and would definitely consider staying in the Villa again ourselves. Certainly, we are already discussing the possibility of perhaps an autumn or spring visit, as we have not seen Kalkan outside the main summer season and would really love to. Thank you again for entrusting us with your house. September 2009 - Caroline and Chris Never expected to love Turkey so much the people are lovely. I want to move here. Thank you for a lovely week, love the fresh bread every day. Love the pool, had a lovely lunch 1st day at Doy Doy we had spinach cheese pancake, best ever. Lovely drive behind in the mountains, we’ll be back. October 2008 Val and Family Fantastic time we have all had. The villa was beautiful and more than we anticipated. We fell in love with Kalkan so much so that next year will be our 25th wedding anniversary and are thinking of treating the family to a summer holiday to celebrate. If your villa is available? We had a fab party for Simons 21st the restaurant laid on a cake and fireworks and we had taken balloons etc. We have had a totally restful and fun holiday. Everyone wants to return next year. People were so friendly and not pushy at all. The food was terrific and we had two or three barbecues at home great fun. It was just nice to spend this time with all the family.
