About stephen robinson
We two hard working professionals have been together for 30 years and live in Surrey. We enjoy travelling and independent holidays. Too old for clubbing and lots of night life,holidays to us are now a mixture of relaxation, some activity, unwinding and experiencing local cultures, good food and drink. We enjoy eating out and Kalkan with its wealth of excellent, high quality and relatively cheap restaurants is ideal for us. We both love swimming and the sea around Kalkan is perfectly safe, clean and beautifully clear. We would not normally have considered buying somewhere we would return to year after year, but cannot envisage wanting to go anywhere else in Europe, other than our Villa in Kalkan, for a seaside holiday.
stephen robinson purchased this Villa in 2004
Why stephen robinson chose Kalkan
We went for a week's last minute holiday in Kalkan and fell in love with it. We had a half hearted plan to buy something abroad and looked at many flats and villas during our stay. We chose Villa Sari because of it's excellent location, large private pool and relative seclusion. It's easy to pop in to town without the need of a taxi or car hire both of which are now very expensive and parking is becoming a problem any time! Although many of our guests rarely leave the pool, we like the sea. Kalamar beach club, the town and Careta Careta are now all less than 10 mins walk away (the new steps to Careta Careta by the Lykia hotel are great). The views are great from the roof terrace.
What makes this Villa unique
We love the convenient location of Villa Sari. We have purposely made the villa very comfortable but impersonal so that our guests can feel it's their home during their stay. We are able to "pop" in to town easily without the need for a car yet it is quiet. There are very few villas so near to town with private pools. We love the size of the pool - most villas only have a square plunge pool. You can actually swim lengths in Villa Sari's pool. We like the modern design and layout and that the kitchen is separate from the lounge - in most properties they are not.

Villa Sari - Kalkan
Our stay at Villa Sari was a pleasure. The villa was kitted out with plenty of homely accessories, a fully equipped kitchen and a much needed water cooler!
Karyn was always on hand to assist with additional requirements.
The swimming pool area was fantastic with ample beds/deck chairs and sun shades.
The villa was within easy walking distance to the many restaurants, bars, supermarkets and shops and also the nearest stoney beach, all be it the walk back was all uphill and tough for elderly or infirm, but there are plenty of Taxi's if the walk does become too much.
There are too many excellent restaurants to name, we tried a different one every night and didn't have one bad meal.
The beach clubs are fantastic with small charges for beds but all food and drink prices very reasonable. Indigo was our favourite!
Would definitely recommend this property and resort to anyone.
We are sure to return sometime in the future!!
Had such a wonderful time at Villa Sari! The villa and the grounds are amazing and there is so much space which is brilliantly furnished for spending time outside in sun or shade. Most days we really didn't want to leave it, even with the incredible draw of Kalkan town!
Inside was really comfortable and we slept amazingly the whole holiday. We found the villa to be well equipped with everything we needed and though there was only 2 of us, the accommodation would be perfect for bigger parties also. Plenty of space inside, around the pool and on the fab roof terrace.
The villa felt really peaceful and private but is also perfectly located, easy stroll into town and a selection of restaurants on the way. There is a handy shop a minute away and other supermarkets a 5 minute walk (if that).
Irfan was very friendly and it's so lovely to see him take such good care of, and tell us all about the feline friends we made! Karyn also checked in and was easily contactable should we have had any queries.
Thank you to our hosts (who also organised transfers)- we had such a brilliant stay and can't wait to return next year!
We couldn't recommend Villa Sari more and Kalkan, as always, is wonderful!!
An outstanding private Villa
This Villa is in an excellent location, in immaculate condition and is superbly managed by Karyn and maintained to the highest standard by Irfan who visits twice a day to clean the pool & set up the sunbed. It has everything you could possibly want and made our first Villa Holiday the best holiday to date. We are a family of 4 with a 12 & 17 YO who felt very safe and at home in Villa Sari. Our thanks to Stephen and Wyn for sharing your beautiful and peaceful property, we are very jealous indeed but grateful to have enjoyed such a lovely Villa. The only possible reason there are not more recent reviews on here must be because people love returning and want to keep it a secret to themselves. It's simply stunning and we will return another year and hopefully book early enough to secure our stay! Enjoy
Thank you for your lovely revue Andy. It means a lot to us that our guests have an enjoyable comfortable stay in Villa Sari.
You are right. Most of our guests are returning for a second, third and more stays and have probably already written revues.
Steve and Wyn
Beautiful villa in beautiful Kalkan
Wonderful villa, offering everything you could need for a chilled out, pool dunking, beer cooling, cat feeding, short walking, restaurant finding, warm welcoming holiday.
Villa Sari is a brilliant home from home. Both double rooms have their own en-suite, air conditioning, balconies and large wardrobes and drawer space.
The large and comfortable roof terrace is a fantastic spot for evening drinks giving you the opportunity to see Kalkan from a lovely height whilst watching the sun setting.
The pool is perfect for cooling off when the sun is fierce (it was fierce)! and a lot of time was spent bobbing in the water with a soothing or funky playlist setting the mood. The pool patio areas are large with plenty of sun lounges, parasols and seating.
Villa Sari is very clean, comfortable, well stocked and perfectly managed. Karyn made sure we had everything we needed and was always available if we needed to contact her. Her responses were immediate and very helpful. Irfan came to manage the outside areas every day and was kind, friendly and polite. We didn't always see him, but we knew he had been as the parasols had been raised or lowered depending on the time of day. He was efficient and non-intrusive.
The Kalkan cats are very much part of this beautiful resort and they know they will win you over. Don't bother fighting it; they are heart stealers.
Kalkan offers a fantastic array of restaurants and bars within a very short walk from Villa Sari. All of these establishments extend a wonderful welcome, great food and very good service. Nothing is too much trouble.
Supermarkets, taxis, banks and even a very good Turkish bath/massage establishment are minutes away on foot.
From the harbour area, after meals and drinks, the walk back to the Villa might not appeal, but a very short taxi ride will cost less than 10 Lira.
This place is magical. Just book it.
Stephen, thank you very much. Villa Sari is exactly as your details described. It was a fantastic place to be for the two weeks.
Perfect retreat in the sun
After deciding to go on holiday with friends, we were recommended this villa by other friends and family that guaranteed a perfect holiday in this villa. After speaking to both the owners if realised this was the right place for us to spend a week in the sun.
The villa was perfect, awesome location with everything that was needed nearby. The Villa had everything needed for that perfect holiday. I can honestly say we all had a lovely time, and would definitely recommend Villa Sari to all my friends that were looking for a for a holiday in the sun. Many different restaurants within walking distance, in every single restaurant we were greated as if we'd known each other for years. Cant complain with any food what so ever. Well worth every penny!
Will definitely be looking to return in the future, and just a shame we hadn't have found this little gem before!
Fantastic Villa - Great town - amazing!
We have are frequent visitors to Kalkan and this was the second time we have stayed at Villa Sari. It is lovely villa in a great location only 5 minutes walk to the town centre. It is peaceful, quiet and relaxing but close enough to get to everything you need. The swimming pool itself is lovely to bob around in and the pool area gets really good exposure to the sun and the roof terrace is even better especially in the middle of the day. We love staying at Villa Sari and it felt like a home from home and would 100% recommend this to anyone who asked us about it. The locals are super friendly and the restaurants are varied and delicious. Not a lot of people seem to be aware of Kalkan whenever I say where I have been so for me it is a hidden treasure and both my girlfriend and I love going every year.
Kalkan has a small pebbly beach near the harbour but most people go to the beach clubs situated around the bay for swimming, watersports or just to enjoy the bar and restaurant facilities. Nearby Patara beach (15 mins by car/bus)is one of the most spectacular in Europe and the 13 km of protected white sands are home to loggerhead turtles. Kaputas is another sandy beach, 5 minutes by bus/car.
Kalkan is approx 1 hour 15 -30 mins from Dalaman and 3 hours from Antalya airports. A taxi transfer from Dalaman is cheap, costing approx £60 and £100 from Antalya each way. These can be arranged for you. Within Kalkan taxi costs have risen steeply but the position of the Villa is central and the need for taxis or a hire car is unlikely.
Kas town is approx 30 km away and Fethyie 1 hour. Other nearby places of interest included Xanthos, Patara, Letoon and Kekova whilst the stunning Saklikent Gorge is also nearby.
Kalkan is a small sophisticated resort set on the Turkish Mediterranean Riviera. Kalkan has escaped the mass tourism seen elsewhere due to rigorous construction regulations and the lack of a long sandy beach. Many Istanbul restaurateurs have opened here which gives Kalkan a sophistication above average larger Turkish resorts. Kalkan has a post office and many banks with ATM. There are many truly excellent (in-expensive) restaurants catering for all tastes. There are good shopping opportunities and a market is held every Thursday. A supermarket is only 30m from the Villa.
