Been to Kalkan before but first time in Villa Kariska. Stayed for 2 weeks with 3 teenage boys and we all absolutely loved it. Perfect location with stunning views of Kalkan. Yes it's on a steep hill but so is all of Kalkan, it's an easy stroll into town and then just get a taxi back, we found them very reasonable (about 10TL - £2.50 approx). Lots of lovely bars and restaurants close by, everything you could want.
The villa was stunning, enough room for everyone to have their own space, pool was kept beautiful throughout our stay without intrusion (never saw the pool man but he came every day early doors), lovely lady came and cleaned the villa after our first week, again without disruption. Everything you could need was there.
Owners were friendly and helpful, responding really quickly and the tour company they recommended were great for our transfers and we used them for some fab days out too - private boat for the day, ring rafting at the gorge and quad biking for the boys.
All in all, the perfect place for a family getaway, could not fault it, would definitely go again!
We had an amazing week at Villa Kariska. We have 2 boys aged 7 and 12 and they loved the pool and there was plenty of space for everyone. The hammock was a big hit ! Every detail was carefully thought through but i would recommend hiring a car as the hill up from the town is very steep, but car here is really cheap and it gave us the freedom to explore kalkan. Highly recommend, will definitely be back.
We have visited Villa Kariska and Kalkan many times over the years and have always loved it. Lots of space for 1-2 families.
Amazing views over the bay, lovely grounds with hammock (shady place to hide from the sun with a good book) and a great pool to cool off and for the kids to play in.
It is only a short 15 mins walk to Kalkan town and also has nearer shops, restaurants and supermarket only 5 mins walk away.
Owners are lovely and really helpful - they recomended us to a local company who sorted out out our airport transfer for 8 people in a minibus and lots of trips whilst we were there.
Can't wait to go back.
