Feedback is important in any business but it is especially important when it comes to holiday rental villas! please share your experience with ourselves and potential new guests.

We have stayed in several villas in Kalkan and Zeytin Koru is up there with the best! In a terrific position close to Kalamar Bay and a two-minute walk from the lovely Yelken restaurant, the villa has every conceivable piece of equipment, comfortable beds, an enormous pool - rare in Kalkan, where the majority of villas and apartments have silly little plunge-pools - and is spotlessly clean and beautifully maintained. There's Sky TV and also loads of gadgets.

Stuart is a great communicator, and every piece of information you could ever need is emailed to you prior to your visit. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again - it's just lovely.

We have been coming to Kalkan for many years but this year is a special one to celebrate joint 75th and 50th birthdays! We couldn’t have picked a better villa it was simply perfect. Stunning views, amazing pool, we loved the different terraces too. Beds were super comfy, and it was fab to have music facility in all bedrooms. It really was home from home. Lots of little touches like citronella candles (for our early evening G&T with the fab view) and wine stoppers, ice-cube trays, etc. etc. In fact we think this is by far the best villa we have ever stayed in ….. ever!
We hired a car for a couple of days from Brave Tours, very reasonably price and brilliant customer service, we went one day to Patara, we visited the ruins and then ended the day on Patara beach. We also went one day to Kas. A lovely lunch with magnificent views. On the way back we found a beautiful little cove with a beach club, we swam one side of the road then wandered across the road for a cold beer and chill out for an hour in the shade. The beach was on the peninsula coming out of Kas. Back in Kalkan, we visited the Kalamar beach club, 25TL per person and that included entry, sunbed & umbrella, use of canoe, pedalo, sea trampoline etc. and also a taxi there and back! Meals there were very good, and they do a great iced coffee. We snorkelled and saw tones of fish, pipe fish, a moray eel (which was quite big and made me a bit nervous) and we were so lucky and saw a sea turtle!!
Good restaurants we ate in were: Aqua – lovely sea bass, Rose’s restaurant in town, before you get to the taxi rank (side street) for great authentic Turkish food. Doy Doy did brilliant steaks and we had an amazing chateaubriand at café Vita. Also good cocktails at Yelken and café Vita, we realised if you order Bombay Sapphire you get a huge, crystal goblet!! Recommend the Gin Gin Mule cocktail at Yelken, and the Long Island Iced Tea there is potent!! Shade Lounge (Hash and Charlotte) in town is very welcoming and are the perfect young hosts, very friendly and welcoming.
Lastly, we found a family of tortoises in the lower garden, they were very grateful for our leftover lettuce and salad. Whilst there we saw the lemon trees and picked a few for our gins later in the day……… All in all a most relaxing and enjoyable holiday. Thank you Cath and Stuart and appreciated the mid holiday call to check we were ok!!


We are a family 6 adults and 4 children aged 11, 9, 4 and 2 and Villa Zeytin Koru was perfect for our family holiday. The villa was exactly as described and had everything we needed for a comfortable home from home stay, the pool area is fantastic with really comfortable sun beds and a lovely pool.

Stuart, the owner, could not have been more helpful throughout the booking process and we were provided with lots of information about the villa and Kalkan, he also kindly organised our transfers, which were first class.

Sharon, the manager ( who is English) visited us on our first day to check that all was well and to offer help and guidance if required. We visited Patara beach one morning and Saklikent Gorge on another day using the services of a private mini bus and driver that was arranged by Sharon for us. Both excursions were enjoyed by all.

The villa is conveniently located with wonderful views and close to a couple of small supermarkets, that seem to stock everything you could possibly need, and plenty of restaurants. We had a couple of takeaways delivered to the villa on a lunch time from Oz Adana and Foto Pizza and would recommend both. We often prepared simple lunches in the villa and there was plenty of crockery and utensils to accommodate this.

On an evening we walked into town and back again, with just the occasional use of taxis, the choice of bars and restaurants is immense and all offer excellent service and food, below is just a few of our particular favourites, though everywhere we went was excellent.

Botanic Garden Bar - a lovely chilled atmosphere.
Pashas - on the Kalamar Road on the way down to the town- really good G & T'S and cocktails.
Alternatif - we agreed we all had one of the tastiest meals of our holiday here.
Adams Place - we were blown away by the Turkish breakfast we had in such an amazing location, we visited near the end of our holiday and if we had had time would have loved to sample lunch or dinner here.

We had a fab holiday and would absolutely recommend Villa Zeytin Koru, nearly forgot to mention the welcome pack waiting for us in the villa was very good and Stuart had arranged for fresh bread to be delivered each morning, (delivered by the pool man) which was greatly appreciated as it saved someone having to get ready earlier to collect it from the supermarket.

Susan Green, 


We have been going to Kalkan for 10+ years and every time we fall more in love with the place. This year was no exception and staying in this beautiful family villa made it even better. Perfect location with stunning sea views. This villa was immaculate inside and out. Everything was catered for, the beds & bedrooms were spacious and comfy. Amenities were bar none, the owners had really thought of everything. Couldn’t recommend this villa highly enough.


Wonderful villa
This was our 2nd visit to villa zeytin koru and it was just as amazing as our last visit. The villa has everything you could possibly want and more. The pool area is fantastic. We have been to Kalkan a few Times and this is the best villa we have stayed in. Stuart made the whole booking process simple and a pleasure. It was also a nice touch that he contacted us while we were in Kalkan to see how everything was. Cant rate the villa highly enough and can't wait to return again.


Hillside Villa with views
Spent two weeks here with up to 8 adults and 3 children and it never felt crowded. Kids really enjoyed the the lovely clear pool. Very convenient placed for lots of really nice restaurants and cocktail bars. The villa is well equipped with leisure equipment as well as everything required to cook or bbq and spend an evening staying in. The high street is a 15 min easy walk and leads down to a delightful harbour and beach. Everything from cashpoints cafes and gift shops. Boat hire is a must. Take a private family boat and visit the many islands coves and perfect snorkeling sites. No need to hire a car as the taxis are so cheap. We loved it.


Fabulous family holiday in an amazing villa!

This was our 2nd visit to Zeytin Koru, arriving late at night to a great welcome pack and a spotless place to call home for two weeks. All the boys dived straight in to the pool, despite it being way past my two Grandsons bedtime! The villa is really well equipped and comfortable, with a brilliant pool, comfy beds, efficient air conditioning ( essential in August!), and a great location! We were a four generation family group and there was something for everyone to enjoy. Kalkan is a gorgeous town and the villa is an easy walk from the old town. With brilliant restaurants a short walk away - we tried Yelkin for lunch and dinner, which was a gem just 50m away, Chillies, The Brothers, and of course Cafe Vita (book for the Wednesday night BBQ for good food and live music) - you don’t have to venture far. In town we tried DoyDoy, Gusto, Trio, and Linekers, for great value, delicious lunches, and a great last evening dinner in Gourmet on the rooftop terrace. Sharon, the manager, arranged a boat trip on ‘Therapy’ and it certainly was - a must do, along with a Turkish Bath, and a shave for the big boys! My Grandaughter celebrated her 1st Birthday and Stuart, the owner, recommended a local cake maker. She made an amazing, delicious cake, delivered to the villa. I would highly recommend her for any celebration cake. Thank you, Stuart and Cath, for sharing your wonderful villa. Saving for visit no. 3!

Sharon S, 

Brilliant villa in a great location
The villa itself was beautiful, excellent views especially from the room on the top floor. We felt at home almost straight away with a lovely welcome pack that had been made up for our group including a few beers a bottle of wine and some freshly baked bread. There are shops and restaurants in the local vicinity, however, most of the action goes on in town which was just 15 mins away. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay will certainly be coming back again cannot praise the villa enough


Fully equipped villa in a great location. Fab pool, comfortable beds, great air con couldn’t ask for anymore. large gardens for relaxing in, adds to the spacious feel.


Just got back from our stay in Kalkan at villa zeytin koru, we couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay. The villa had everything we needed for a young family & very child friendly. Stuart the owner was always on hand & a great help throughout the booking process & the stay itself if we needed any of his expertise. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Steve R., 

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.

Eoin T, 

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.

Tracey-Ann W., 

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.

Christopher A, 

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.

Pam W, 

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!


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.
