About Carole Leese
Carole Leese purchased this Villa in 2003
Why Carole Leese chose Kalkan
We first came to Kalkan on holiday about 14 years ago with a company called Tapestry and stayed in the Ada apartments which were owned and built by Tekin and Halit Ada. We fell in love with Kalkan and it's people and had the most wonderful holiday.We felt we did not want a holiday anywhere else so continued to holiday there every year. As most people do, we dreamt that one day we would have our own holiday home in Kalkan and a few years later that dream became a reality. We bought a plot of land and our villa was built. We have had some lovely holidays in Kalkan and over the years have seen the area develop but the people remain the same, lovely warm hearted and friendly. I can't ever see us changing and going somewhere else as this has become our second home.
What makes this Villa unique
We have lovely views in a peaceful and beautiful location.Sitting having breakfast watching the boats go out on there day trips each day is a wonderful sight, as is watching the sunset each evening. We feel very lucky and blessed to have a home in such a tranquil setting.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Best villa we've stayed in, views are amazing from every floor and from every aspect. Agree fully with previous reviews about location and the photos not doing it justice. Hospitality was also great, felt like you were staying at a friend's villa as opposed to some villas that just provide basics and are kitted out cheaply. Things like water coolers, loads of books/DVD/Music, comfortable furniture that you'd want in your own house, travel adapters available for use - all small details but details that make a difference. Thanks for the stay we had a great holiday
Excellent value for money
Always will be a few minor hiccups with villas - that aside this villa is nicer than the photos, in the best part of Kalkan and great value.
Just returned from a wonderful weeks holiday at this villa in Kalkan. Glorious location,villa beautifully finished and spotlessly clean.The owners Carole and Paul,very helpful with any queries and Bayram,on hand at the resort should a problem occur. Will definitely return.

Serendipity was an absolute delight. The accommodation over four floors, if you include the roof terrace, provided everything you could wish for. The views over Kalcan bay are fantastic and we had hours of relaxing fun watching the various boats coming and going.
Carol and Paul could not have been more helpful in arranging our stay and ensuring that our stay was everything that we could have wished for. The walk into town only took 15 minutes and the water taxi from the Beach Club below the villa, which does a fantastic Turkish breakfast, takes only 5 minutes and is free.
After evenings eating in Kalcans many and fine restaurants the 5 minute taxi ride home costs £2.
Ending the evenings on the first floor terrace with a glass of wine became a ritual and, all in all, Serendipity was indeed a fortunate find for us and I cannot thank Carol and Paul for allowing us to share their property for a while.
Fabulous week’s stay
Stayed here in September 2018 and this is one of the better villas we have stayed in. Villa itself is in a great location, above palm beach club and although on a (very) steep hill.....taxi’are cheap and plentiful should it seem too much . It is however only a 15 minute pleasant walk into town. (A short,sharp steep section, then flat!) The villa is very spacious and has everything you could possibly need with loads of different terraces to relax and find shade (or your own space) should you need it.
We never tired of after- sun vino’s watching spectacular sunsets !
Beds were comfy and showers were good. Everywhere was spotless.
The owner communicated frequently and answered all ours questions and the maintenance team appeared very quickly when the hot water tank sprung a gushing leak!
Air conditioning was lacking in the living room, but that didn’t really affect us.
We would love to return one day. Thank you.
Many thanks for a lovely review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We have taken on board your comments regarding air conditioning in the lounge and this has been addressed for the coming season. We aim to please all our guests during there stay and appreciate all comments made. We hope to see you again in the future.
Kind regards Carole and Paul
Stunning villa with a fabulous view
We stayed at villa serendipity last year and couldn't wait to go back again this year. The villa is beautiful with lovely furnishings and everything you could want to make for a comfortable holiday. Carole and Paul are always very helpful and the welcome pack is a really lovely gesture. We will certainly be returning to this wonderful place.
Thank you for your lovely comments, we try hard to make sure that the villa is as comfortable as possible to ensure you have a wonderful stay. We hope to see you again soon.
Regards Paul and Carole
