“Easily the BEST villa we have ever stayed in”
Reviewed 10 October 2011 for a stay in August 2011

For the last two years (July 2010 & August 2011) we have spend two of the most relaxing two week holidays ever! We are so pleased to have found Pat's amazing Villa in this incredible area of Turkey.

Where to start?! The setting is without a doubt the best in the area with 360 degree views with no chance of anyone overlooking you at all. The villa kitted out to a superb standard and even though we felt it couldn't be improved upon Pat had added new touches this that further enhanced our stay.

Having rented many private properties one of the areas that stands out so much is the love and attention that Gihat and family (Pat's year round caretaker) place on ensuring the Villa is cleaned on a regular basis and all sheets / towels changed frequently. They bring lovely bread, honey and eggs each morning and the pool / terrace area is cleaned to perfection each morning before you wake up. This is an excellent perk of Villa Ruyam and certainly not the norm in Villas of any price range.

The views are to die for and I could take photo after photo of the Villa at various times of the day as the light changes.

Amenities are very very good and we are able to make very good meals when we feel like staying in. That said there are so many great local places to eat in both Islamlar and Kalkan that we do eat out very often!

All in all paradise and I think we will return for the hat trick of stays in 2012 :-)

Pat, keep up the great work.

“A piece of Turkish paradise”
Reviewed 3 October 2011 for a stay in September 2011

Having rented many villas over the past seven years I can say with my hand on my heart that Villa Ruyam is one of the best villas that we have stayed in. The care that has been taken in putting this villa together is clear to see the moment you enter. The layout is well thought out and perfectly executed; everything you could possibly need during your stay has been thought of and provided. The location is perfect for that peaceful get away and the views are simply stunning.
We struggled finding the villa initially, a map with the instructions would be useful, however once we got there it was well worth it. Upon arrival we were greeted by the owner Pat and Ghiat who looks after the property, we were instantly made to feel welcome. The villa was well maintained and cleaned to a very high standard, the rooms were spacious and the windows provided a well lit open feel to each room. Everything you needed to cater for your self was there in the very well equipped kitchen. The bedrooms had large well thought out wardrobes for all your clothing needs and no skimping on the hangars! There was plenty of information available about the villa and the surrounding area as well as useful info about Turkey, as this was our first visit we found this extremely helpful. The local restaurants were excellent and provided a wealth of delicious fresh food. We did venture further a field for food into Kalkan and other towns but for us we were happiest in the local restaurants near the villa. A car is a must, and with the quality of some of the hillside roads I personally would recommend a 4X4.
This was one of the best holidays we have had and I would highly recommend anyone who wants to visit Turkey but enjoys peace and tranquillity to look this place up, you won’t do any better!

“welcome to paradise !”
Reviewed 8 September 2011 for a stay in August 2011

villa ruyam is a dream villa with it's stunning views outside and fantastic decor inside you will want for nothing more.The villa is spotlessly clean,extremley comfortable in a luxurious way.Pat the owner is fabulous and makes you so welcome with the help of the villa caretaker Gihat.Both are obviously very proud of this dream villa,which i can honestly say is the absolute top end of accomadation.A dream pool and table tennis table are an added bonus too.Situated in the mountain area of Islamba,15 minutes from Kalkan Harbour you will need a car .There are so many hidden retaurants in the mountain you are spoilt for choice.In the peace and tranquility,our paradise for sure.
