Why Alex Austin chose Kalkan
We bought in March 2013. We have been coming to Kalkan for over 17 years and love the area. Our villa is in our favorite part of Kalkan - Kisla with the most sunshine and best sunsets.
What makes this Villa unique
We believe our villa has some of the best views in Kisla with loads of terrace spaces on multiple levels. Our garden is stunning when all the flowers are in full bloom.

A fabulous villa with stunning views
We have had a wonderful stay in Villa Holu. Inside the villa bedrooms are spacious with large comfortable beds and masses of storage space. The en-suite bathrooms have lovely big walk-in showers with plenty of hot water. The kitchen/lounge is open plan and a good size, and the kitchen is well equipped.
The exterior of the property is fantastic, with plenty of outdoor spaces for a large adult family group to either relax together or enjoy a bit of quiet time as couples or smaller groups. The infinity pool is a lovely touch, with stunning views beyond. Beware though if, like us, you are staying late in the season as the pool is not heated and although the sun still felt hot, the water was extremely cold!
Table tennis and the pool table were enjoyed by all too.
Kisla itself is a small quiet town a couple of miles from Kalkan. It is walkable but does feel a bit of a trek - especially up the hill leaving the villa! We were glad of our hire car for popping to the supermarket and going out for evening meals etc, although taxis are easy to come by and not expensive.
Great villa in wonderful location
Villa Holu is in a great location just outside Kalkan. The villa itself is fantastic: well equipped, a lovely pool, a games room and many outside spaces to relax and admire the views or eat together as a group. No need for a hire car as the local taxi services are cheap and efficient. The booking process was easy and Alex the property owner was helpful and quick to answer any pre-trip queries.
All in all a wonderful time in first rate accommodation was had by our party of seven adults and two small children.
Thank you Alex.
We were a party of six adults and we had a fantastic stay at Villa Holu. The facilities were fab, pool and terraces all maintained to a high standard. Table tennis and pool room great fun. BBQ also good and the pool man very kindly cleaned it for us and took all our empties!! We shall definitely be returning.
Maid service twice a week, gardener daily, poolman daily. They even cleaned the BBQ for us - most unexpected!!! FABULOUS
Lovely Comfortable Villa
Lovely spacious villa with lots of areas to escape to. The pool was area was nice and good views across the bay, plenty sun loungers and umbrellas. We were a bit disappointed with the table tennis table and equipment which had seen better days.
The bedrooms were all spacious and plenty of wardrobe and drawer space. For days that we were in and needed to cook we did struggle with the kitchen a bit due to a lack equipment, such as baking trays, newer saucepans, grill for the oven etc. However, we got by and it wasn’t a major problem.
Lovely to have the bread delivered every morning and great also that replacement water for the cooler was available by just messaging the Villa management who would drop by with a new one.
This was our third trip to Kalkan and as always we had a great holiday.
Thanks for reviewing our villa. I take your point about the table tennis table and a new one us on order. I'm surprised that you thought the kitchen poorly equipped as I bought all new saucepans and frying pans prior to your arrival. I will ask my Manager to investigate this and the lack of a grill!
Thanks again for the feedback.
Lived up to our expectations
Villa Holu was exactly like the photographs. Everything about it was stylish, comfortable, well equipped, well located, stunning views and more...
All correspondence with the owners was prompt, helpful and friendly. Our party of 8 included 4 teenagers who were thrilled with the games room and table tennis not to mention the good wi-fi connection.
We would definitely recommend this villa and would not hesitate in returning ourselves.
The villa is approx 200m from the sea. Kalkan Beach Club and The Mahal Beach Clubs are just 8 mins walk down from the villa. They both have a restaurant and they operate a boat service to the harbour. Kalkan has a small pleasant pebble beach. Otherwise you can hop on a dolmus (a Turkish minibus) and head for either Patara Beach approx 20 mins. 18km of sand, described as one of the most beautiful stretches of sand in all of Turkey, or Kaputas Beach a small but stunning beach, takes 10 mins.
The nearest airport is Dalaman, which takes approx 1.5 hours to Kalkan (130km). Transfers to and from the airport can be arranged by us. We use a local company located in Kalkan.
The centre of Kalkan/Harbour takes about 3 mins by taxi. As all of Kalkan is hilly to walk it will take about 20 - 25 mins. Kalkan is in the heart of the Lycian region and there are many historical sites close by to visit ruins of Patara, Xanthos- the capital city of Lycia, Kekova - Lycia's famous Sunken City, ghost village of Kayakoy, Saklikent Gorge.
There are plenty of banks with a cash dispenser in the village as well as a Post Office. Credit cards or sterling as well as Turkish lira are widely accepted in most of the town's shops and restaurants. There are several supermarkets in Kalkan, and 2 small supermarkets within 3 mins walk of the villa. Market day is on a Thursday. Kalkan is quietly sophisticated and postcard pretty with a multitude of excellent harbour and roof top restaurants offering all manner of culinary delights, together with a good selection of stylish and atmospheric blues and jazz bars. The village shops stay open until around midnight and are well stocked with interesting antiques, crafts, jewelers, carpets and clothing. The narrowing streets of the old town are lined with whitewashed shuttered buildings festooned with brightly coloured bougainvillea.
