Our first trip to Villa Zeytin Koru and also to Kalkan. We loved both and I feel sure we will be back.
Great to stay in a villa which was so well equipped and beautifully furnished. There are so many great restaurants in Kalkan you probably won't want to use the kitchen but if you do the kitchen cooking utensils and crockery are extremely comprehensive.
The numerous outside sitting areas allow you to party or chill in the beautiful Turkish climate depending on your mood. The pool is excellent- you won't end up concussed diving in and it is wonderfully refreshing in the heat of the day. Modern air on in the bedrooms mean you are always comfortable.
Sharon and Rami who manage the property are locally based and extremely prompt to respond.
An exceptional property in a marvellous town

Peter R, 

A beautiful and spacious villa, with facilities that will cater for everyone. The top two terraces provided an amazing view of the coastline and all of local food recommendations were excellent. Would 100% recommend.

The villa provided myself and a group of friends with everything that we could possibly have needed for our weeks' stay - from the well stocked welcome pack (ideal due to our late arrival) to the incredible view over Kalamar Bay. All facilities are provided to minute detail and the place is immaculate. There are also many excellent eateries and amenities on the doorstep. The villa is also perfect for families as there is a games console, pool (with children's pool) as well as plenty of floats etc. Can't recommend it highly enough.

This is a fantastic villa in Kalamar district of Kalkan with high quality features, furnishings and technology. A huge amount of thought has gone in by the owners into making sure visitors have everything they need for a stress free and successful holiday, with many thoughtful touches. The villa is well set up for parties with children and for our party with teenage boys, good wifi across the whole property was appreciated as was the set of gym weights. A very large property outside and inside on many floors, so space for large groups and a great pool area. The location just off the Kalamar road is ideal, quiet, but with easy access to Kalkan centre. Having stayed in many villas in this area over the years can highly recommend this one.

Our 2nd visit to the villa and you don't go back to a place unless you are happy and we were more than happy! I'm sure there will be someone out there who could find fault with the villa, customer service etc but I would suggest in such circumstances any "problem" is more likely to be with the person. Great facilities, some lovely local restaurants - highly recommended!!

Alistair N., 

villa was perfect, spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you could possibly want. Welcome pack was full of information and advice, also recommendations of many restaurants nearby which were all excellent. Location ideal for amenities in town and harbour and plenty of activities to suit all ages.

Beautifully appointed villa for totally relaxing holiday

The villa is beautifully appointed with all the creature-comforts of home, set in a Mediterranean setting. Good sized bedrooms throughout, and a comfortable and large lounger area. Breakfast was taken on the balcony daily.....such a pleasant way to start the day. The villa is in easy walking distance to the town of Kalkan, and we ventured down each day to experience some of the best meals we have ever had on holiday. If I could recommend one activity, it would be the boat cruise of the nearby islands... full days experience, but well worth it. If you don't fancy walking to town, there are numerous restaurants nearby, again all with excellent and tasty menus. This was one of the best holidays we have ever had, and we'll definitely be back to Villa Keytin Koru.

Second visit - says it all!

A lovely villa with enough room for everybody to be together or have some quiet time to yourself. A nice distance from the port for a pleasant walk or if you're feeling lazy there are plenty of great restaurants within 200 yards of the villa gate.

Go and see for yourself you will not be dissappointed!

Left on Sep 22, 2015 for a stay in Sep 2015
We arrived at night so the welcome pack was a god send, we dumped our cases and headed straight out to the Yelkin bistro it was the nearest we could see, it was really nice food. The next morning we couldn't wait to get up and see the views, sitting on the balcony with a cup of tea looking out to sea what more could you want it felt like paradise. The villa more than met our expectations, it has everything you need, we loved the outside space and the decent size pool, it is in a perfect location. The villa felt like home and all the bedrooms are a decent size. There are several bars and restaurants close by so if you don't feel like the walk into town there is no need to. We ended up making Café Vita our local, if we didn't eat in there we always ended up in there for a night cap, such lovely and friendly people and the food is superb, you must go on bar b q night, really good value. We also recommend Ekin Han hotel, the views are wonderful and again the food was superb it was funny meeting a Turkish Scouser (one of the owners) being Scousers ourselves! Another local restaurant to try is The Brothers again really nice food and people, it was funny watching one of the waiters trying in vain to stop a small puppy coming into the restaurant he had to give up in the end! Highlight of out stay was a return to Adams Place it has to be our favourite restaurant he is based on the road to Kas and he will come and pick you up, the restaurant is ran by Adam and his family and nothing is too much trouble, the views are outstanding and the food is divine.Lots of other restaurants in town but too many too mention all of them really nice food and friendly people. Kalkan is such a beautiful place, we love place, the food, the people and the wildlife we even found wild tortoises living in the bottom garden. We have all thoroughly enjoyed and had a very relaxing holiday at Zeytin Koru and will certainly like to return in the future. Thank you :)

A fabulous stay at villa Zeytin Koru

We arrived at villa Zeytin Koru in the early hours of a Saturday morning following a good transfer from Dalaman which was arranged via the owner. It was lovely to arrive to a welcome pack consisting of beer, wine, fruit juice, milk, tea, coffee etc a perfect way to start the holiday! The villa itself is lovely, was spotlessly clean and spacious, with lovely outside space and a fantastic pool. It is actually a traditional Turkish style home, with three bedrooms on the ground floor and the living room & kitchen / diner on the first floor leading onto a lovely terraced area which gives superb sea views and is a lovely place to eat and drink. This type of layout is excellent, as the bedrooms all give easy access to the pool area, so although it feels odd at first, it's very practical. The facilities within the villa are ideal and plentiful, the dishwasher is a god send, the Sky TV was a bonus and the owners even have a little mobile phone left there for you so that the English lady who manages the place for them, Sharon, can contact you or vice versa should the need arise (she gives excellent advice on shops, bars & restaurants etc and lives locally). There is also a very good BBQ on the first floor terrace which we used a couple of times, cooking lovely steaks whilst drinking cold beers looking out to sea is a must! The location of the villa is very good, a car is not required, as it's a ten minute stroll into town (Kalkan is quite hilly but the walk along the Kalamar Road is more or less flat) and if you know the Turks, you'll know that the shop or minimarket owners and most bar / restaurant owners will pick you up or drop you back if you ask. Otherwise, it's a couple of quid in a taxi. As for places to eat, we have holidayed in Turkey for the last 4 years and never had a bad meal, the food standard is brilliant and caters for all. There are so many places to eat in the old town (too many to mention), with several lovely places close to the villa along Kalamar Road such as Cafe Vita (good for breakfast and BBQ night), Yelkin, Kaptans and more besides. Overall we were very happy indeed and would highly recommend this villa.

Luxury stay with fabulous views

We stayed in Zeytin Koru with friends during the first week in May. We were blessed with lovely weather. This is a lovely spacious villa with well decorated rooms all ensuite. The view from our room at the top over Kalkan was stunning with our own private balcony. Other rooms have equally nice views over the pool. The villa was well equipped with everything we needed for our stay and cleaned to a very high standard. Beer and wine plus food essentials were left for our arrival which was a nice touch. If you can bear to tear yourself away from the poolside there are several good restaurants nearby including recently opened The Brothers and Yelken. It takes about 20 minutes to walk down into the old town of Kalkan where there are many more restaurants offering rooftop dining. It is a bit of a hike back up the hill but we enjoyed walking off our dinner and there are plentiful cheap taxis if you would prefer not to walk.

A beautiful well appointed villa in a fabulous location

This a a superb villa in a great location. This villa is spacious and will accommodate 8 people comfortably. The pool is quite large and was warm when we were there (early May). The views down to the bay are lovely. The villa is about half a mile from the town of Kalkan. There are many restaurants within a couple of hundred yards of the villa. This is a great place to stay for a relaxing holiday.

Peter C, 


Book it! You will love your stay.


Stuart offered lots of advice before we booked and was so friendly and welcoming and sent us lots of information once we had booked the villa. Emailing us Maps, local information and recommendations. There was a welcome pack with food and drink waiting for us on arrival along with a spotlessly clean and inviting place to stay. My Husband and I travelled with our 2 young children and they had a ball. They loved the pool, all the outside space, TV, Games and of course the amazing games room. The Vila is in a perfect location, there is a excellent Restaurant at the top of the road. Plus lots of choice a short walk into town. We had a car which meant we could explore more, which I recommend. But, this is not necessary as the village of Kalkan has more than enough to tempt. Great Villa, Amazing location. Thank You!

stuartpat, 

Our best villa yet!

We travelled as an extended family of 11 and zeytin koru was so spacious we never felt on top of each other. There are so many areas to sit and relax. The pool is a great size with steps for ease of access, which my parents greatly appreciated. We had a couple of days with changeable weather, which we expected, so a real bonus was the Nintendo wii, the fussball and air hockey tables. The table tennis table at the front of the villa was a real hit with the teenagers. The villa is exactly as pictured and was spotlessly clean for our arrival. After a week it was fully cleaned again with new sheets and towels. The location is perfect, being just 5 minutes walk from cafe vita on the Kalamar road. This is definitely the best villa we have stayed in yet for the price and wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to friends and family.
