About Scott Duncan
Scott Duncan purchased this Villa in 2002
Why Scott Duncan chose Kalkan
When buying any property everyone knows its all about location, location, location! Back in 2002 we were lucky enough to still be able to buy a plot of land within close walking distance to Kalkan's main shops, restaurants etc. and yet still be relatively secluded with good sea views.
What makes this Villa unique
One of the main benefits of building your own villa is that it allows you to design the property to suit your priorities. For us that meant the general layout had to be spacious, with numerous balconies and terraces to let people spread out and enjoy the sun. Also important, for any holiday home, it had to have a decent size swimming pool!! In addition, as we wanted people to come and share the villa with us, each bedroom had to have its own bathroom. With those design essentials taken care of the rest was down to equipping and furnishing the villa to a quality standard that we would want for ourselves. We are now in our 4th season renting the villa out and it's a real added bonus when paying Guests tell us how much they have also enjoyed staying at our wonderful Villa Abri!!

What a fab holiday we have just had. The villa is large, fully equipped and the pool amazing. The service from Muhammet, the property manager and his team was first class. We brought 2 teenage lads with us and there was plenty for them to do. Swim, watch some DVDs, play on the PS3.
The local area is lovely and the people were very friendly. The only trouble is there are too many restaurants to chose from!! Food was great value too. We had a great time bartering in the market on a Thursday :)
We took a beautiful boat trip around the Kalkan bays. Fantastic value for money and great if you love a swim/snorkel in the sea.
This was our first time in Turkey and we will most definately return.
Fantastic Kalkan Villa
Wonderful villa with spectacular views. Great pool and pool area, plenty of room to spread out. Located near to local supermarkets and amenities. Short walk into town, quite hilly on the return but manageable and views well worth this. Scott fantastic to deal with and we definitely hope to return. Lovely time in Kalkan in a great villa.
Perfect in every way
The villa was stunning and in a perfect location just a 5 minute walk to the old town and a minute from the supermarket. A car is not necessary as everything is so close and transport and tours are easy to arrange.
The villa owner was English and so helpful, the villa manager onsite made sure you had everything you needed for a perfect holiday.
Kalkan is a great resort - we don't go back to many places, but would certainly return here.
Well-equipped villa in a great location
Large, spacious villa, in a great location. The Migros supermarket is just up the road and the many and varied bars and restaurants of Kalkan are a 5-10 minute downhill stroll. (The return journey is tougher, but it's a good way to walk off dessert!) The villa has plenty of outdoor seating areas but the rooftop terrace, with lovely views over the bay, is a highlight, and we made good use of the barbecue. Excellent communication with property owner ahead of stay and a really detailed and helpful info pack. Property manager in Kalkan proved to be a little elusive but I believe that has now been addressed. Would highly recommend this villa and hope to book again.
Fabulous villa with all the amenities you need. Clean and comfortable with a lovely roof terrace to watch the sun set and take in the beautiful view of the harbour. Great pool, perfect for cooling off on a hot day or just relaxing on a lounger with a good book! Fantastic location close to the harbour and shops, and a great location to explore the amazing history in the area, Patara, Xanthos, Pinara, all worth a visit. Can't wait to return
A wonderful Villa (Abri) in a very sweet town.
The property was larger than I had imagined, and I felt at home instantly. I arrived in the dark, and was blown away by the spectacular views the following morning. The property had everything I needed day-to-day and more! We didn't even use the BBQ, oven or microwave during our stay. There are so many areas where you can sit and chill with a book or a glass of wine. Even with 5 of us staying, you could always find a quiet space. I was the only one to use the pool during my visit, so had it all to myself which was great, especially as it was only steps from my bedroom.
The 3 bathrooms were all really great sizes, I had not expected the 2nd and 3rd to be as spacious, so that was a great advantage.
There are supermarkets, cafes and restaurants only a minutes walk from Villa Abri, so we only went down to the harbour about 5 or 6 times during our stay, and the bakery just down the hill is well worth a visit.
Scott and family could not have been more helpful, they really helped to make my stay really special indeed.
Spoilt for choice - nearby, Kalkan's small beach and various beach clubs/activities are available. On the stunning coastal road to Kas is Kaputas Beach, a secluded cove and rated one of the 10 best beaches in Turkey-Guardian 2010. The world famous 12km beach at Patara is a 20 minutes drive away, and, as it is part of a national park, it's totally unspoilt. Both of these beaches are about 10kms from Kalkan and are regularly served by local Dolomuses (a shared minibus service - fantastic value!).
Dalaman Airport is about an 1hr 30 mins drive from Kalkan and we will be pleased to book, on your behalf, a private airport transfer. Your uniformed, transfer driver will greet you at the airport and take you direct to Villa Abri in a comfortable, air conditioned car.
2017 private airport transfer prices:
• Car for up to 3 villa guests = £55 each way
• People Carrier for up to 5 villa guests = £70 each way
Kalkan's Old Quarter, the main supermarkets and shops are all within close walking distance to the villa so car hire/taxis are not essential.
Kalkan neighbours many important Lycian sites (Patara, Xanthos, Kekova-Simena) which all make for great day trips. The nearest town of any size is Kas - approx. a dramatic 25 minute drive along the coast and offers a variety of outdoor activities including para gliding, horse riding etc.
Fethiye, the largest town in the area, is a 45 minute drive and has a wonderful, permanent outdoor fresh seafood market. For a nominal fee, the adjacent restaurants in the market will be pleased to cook the fish you have chosen - delicious!!
Kalkan is well served with a large number of restaurants, shops, pharmacies, banks, post office etc, which are primarliy located at the same end of town as Villa Abri.
At the harbour, you can join larger boats (GBP 35.00 per person) or hire your own (£150.00 with crew) for the day to take you out to secluded coves for a swim. In both options, the price includes a decent lunch and afternoon tea with drinks being charged seperately.
Another must do is Saklikent (Turkish for Hidden City) Europe's second-largest river gorge, and about a 40 minutes drive from Kalkan. It is a spectacular place, with sculpted granite walls soaring high above, offering leisurely river wading to river tubing for the more active.
