Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.

Beautiful villa, sea and town with the most lovely people!
We were so impressed with our stay at Villa Kismet. The villa is stunning and fully equipped with everything you need, allowing us to truly have the most care-free, relaxing holiday. It has incredible panoramic views from the pool and sea, which is only a short walk away and was perfect for our children to play and enjoy the watersports. We mostly walked into Kalkan town centre, only 15-20 minutes away and has beautiful shops and restaurants, our favourites being Doy Doy and Aubergine on the harbour with delicious authentic Turkish food and the friendliest staff. We are set on coming back again next year!

A dream come true
I have stayed in Villa Kismet twice now, and I have to say it is the most magical villa I have been in. Kalkan is a stunning place to holiday and the idyllic views from the infinity pool at Villa Kismet are simply dream like. A trip to Kalkan is not complete without a stay in this beautiful villa. Every time I have visited the villa has been clean with all the necessary essentials. There is a welcome pack full of all the information you could possibly need. I cannot wait to re book for 2018 and I'm sure every year after that!

The perfect paradise getaway!
I've been coming to Villa Kismet for many years and cannot recommend it enough for a relaxing retreat! Set in a gorgeous quiet bay overlooking the turquoise coast, just down the road from idyllic Kalkan town, the villa is part of a fantastic complex with amazing pools, gardens and stunning views. It's so rare to have this combination of peace and quiet, with all the amenities you could possibly want and lively nightlife just minutes away! Ideal for couples, friends, families or any kind of group!

Spectacular Views of Kalkan Bay
The Mavi apartment was fabulous, It has amazing views of Kalkan bay and we never got tired of looking out !! The apartment was a good size and had everything you need to make your stay a good one. We stayed for 10 nights in total and we had clean linens in the middle of our stay. The apartment, the roof terrace and the pool were all lovely. Have a few drinks on the roof terrace when the sun is setting its totally amazing. !!! overall really loved the apartment. We have stayed in Kalkan before even though its a little bit further out of the town than we usually go , it really didnt matter as you need the walk into town to burn the calories off with all the food we ate. Just get a taxi back they are cheap enough. Great time cant wait to go back.

Perfect villa for a family holiday
Villa Kismet is a beautiful family holiday villa and the perfect location for a family holiday. The villa is very clean and spacious, in a great location near to the heart of the village and has amazing views across Kalkan. Not only does it have a beautiful garden with various fruit trees, it also has a wonderful swimming pool, rooftop terrace and an annex if you want somewhere even more tranquil. Finally, the owner was extremely helpful providing an information pack about the villa and area beforehand, responding quickly to queries and the representative at the villa responded quickly whenever there was a query or a request. Truly recommend staying here as it was the perfect villa in a great location.

Just wonderful!
Having stayed at the lovely Meltem apartments on a few occasions I was keen to go up the steps to Villa Kismet, which stands behind them. An extended family holiday gave us the opportunity to book this pretty villa this summer. Set in lucious gardens, with lime (or lemon), pomegranate, fig and banana trees as well as masses of bouganvillia draped around, it is really a little piece of paradise. The villa is very spacious - 9 of us staying for a little while and it didn't seem crowded. The pool was lovely, almost bath like and available day and night to cool off in. For longer cooler swims the sea was about 200m away - crystal clear and slightly cooler. However, although the walk down to the sea is fine you get to use those calories up on the walk back up that steep, steep, hill! Villa kismet is also very well equipped with everything we needed and much else besides. One of my few frustrations is knowing I didn't make enough use of the table football game on one of the many balconies! I haven't mentioned the views, mainly because I want to make sure the villa is available to book for ME. But I guess I should. Villa Kismet has them is spades, whether you're in the pool, on the roof terrace or on one of the many balconies. They are the views that get you through the darkest days of winter - as long as you know you have them waiting for you when summer comes around again. Villa Kismet really is just wonderful!

Many thanks for your lovely review. It was a pleasure having you and your family stay with us. I know what you mean about the table football! I never seem to get a chance to go on it, although the youngsters love it. We love our views which means having to cope with the occasional steep hills - but not bad compared to villas higher up. I must admit to cheating and usually making use of the free shuttle service offered by the Kalamar Beach Club. Then again we also use the free beach which means I have no excuse to work off the calories gained from all the wonderful food available in Kalkan. Looking forward to having you stay with us again.

Excellent villa at an amazing location
When our group of 13 Finnish students planned our holiday in Turkey, we were seeking a decent villa to fit our needs. Villa Kismet was just the perfect option for us, the villa was spacious, included all the needed rooms and facilities with an amazing view on the ocean. And it was decently cheap compared to other options! The villa was decently far away from the city center, but it brought us the extra privateness and more chilled out atmosphere that we needed. Still the city center was only a walk away and all the necessary shops and restaurants were closeby. Kalkan itself was a perfect choise for a mix of adventorius and easygoing holiday. We got great advice and service from the villa staff and ended up doing canoeing, skuba diving, paragliding, sailing, sunbathing, beaches and other sights and finally rented scooters and drove around the amazing landscape. It was a perfect holiday for our needs, much recommended! :)

Fantastic accomodation
11 of us stayed at Villa kismet during tge easter break, we all had a fantastic time. The house is really well equipped and is spacious, clean and child friendly. The children loved the pool while the adults took advantage of tge sun loungers to catch the sun rays. Sulaimaan and Tamar were only a phone call away and were always very helpful. Sami from Altu excursions was also very helpful with arranging activities for the group. Thank you for making our stay soo comfortable. ☺

Luxury villa in an ideal setting
We have stayed at Villa Kismet before and it is just as good as our previous visit. The holiday was perfect from start to finish with pickups arranged and excursion advice. The villa is well maintained and really well equipped which makes for an enjoyable and easy stay. The villa and Kalkan are well situated to do interesting excursions or just walk down the hill to the beach club near by. For the less adventurous it has a great salt water pool to relax in. There are many quality restaurants in Kalkan to chose from. One of our favourite things about Villa Kismet are the views from all levels especially the roof terrace are amazing. Highly recommended.

All along the harbour are roomy restaurants and bars from where you can survey the unique wooden gullets returning from their days voyage. The centre of the harbour is the focal point in Kalkan and the bazaar area is a maze of narrow, winding streets brimming with shops, restaurants, bars and clubs.Kalamar Bay is only 25 minutes walk from Kalkan and m from the best beach clubs in mountains.
