Beautiful villa, amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a weeks stay at the wonderful Villa Warratah. There were 8 of us (4 adults and 4 children under 8), the villa is large and on 3 floors so more than enough space for us all. The villa is stunning and has uninterrupted views across the bay which can be enjoyed from every room. All bedrooms were tastefully decorated with efficient aircon. The kitchen was well equipped and there is a gas fired bbq making impromptu bbq's a breeze. The games room is well equipped.

There was a generous welcome package upon arrival (bread, butter, tea, milk, fruit, wine and more - all the essentials). There is a mobile phone for use at the villa - we used it to order taxis, book tours and order food from the local shop which delivers to your door.

There are plenty of food shops within a 15 mins walk and a taxi home was reasonably priced (10L). Plenty of eat out options in the beautiful old part of the town.

We visited the Kalamar beach club for a day which was lots of fun (for both the adults and kids!) - a trampoline in the sea and use of the pedalo and kayak included within the cost of your sun lounger. The food in the restaurant wasn't great but we all enjoyed a fabulous day. We also took a boat trip arranged by Ozi at Define Tours. It was fantastic, we saw turtles, snorkeled in crystal clear warm water, jumped off the diving board and even had a mud bath! The boat staff couldn't do enough for us.

Thank you to Mark and Anna for the use of your beautiful villa. (Efficient comms before, during and after our trip also)

Wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was our second holiday at Villa Waratah and again it was exceptional. The villa immaculate and comfortable with stunning views over Kalkan. Nothing is too much trouble for the owners Mark and Anna or for the local manager of the villa. We were a group of 8 and there was plenty of space inside and outside of the villa for us all to relax. The games room downstairs was excellent for the three boys in our party aged 9, 12 and 18. We spent a couple of days at the Kalamar beach club which was excellent value and both fun and relaxing for all of us. We tried many restaurants in Kalkan and all were fantastic. Our favourite though in terms of food, service and value was Wapiano where we always received a friendly welcome and amazing cuisine at a fraction of the cost you would pay at home. If you are considering Kalkan and Villa Waratah for a holiday do not hesitate. You will have a wonderful holiday to remember!

Totally Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

All in all a perfect holiday and the villa is totally beautiful throughout! The inside space is amazing, with the most stunning views from every room, and the kitchen is packed with everything you are ever likely to need on holiday.It was lovely to have all the little extras provided such as pool towels, hairdryers and travel plugs, just to make life so easy, and everything was spotless.

The outside space is just as good, with plenty of room for sunbathing, eating and drinking - we couldn't fault a thing.

Mark was so helpful with information & flexibility when booking, and Ozi is the perfect 'Man Friday' for anything that you need in and around Kalkan - And don't forget to use the home delivery service for items you've forgotten at the Supermarket - it's brilliant!

It is probably the best Villa we have ever stayed in, we will definitely be back!

Fantastic stay at Villa Waratah

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay in Kalkan and Villa Waratah. Our first visit surpassed all our expectations and this year that impeccable standard continued. We had a seamless collection from Dalaman airport and transfer to Kalkan, arranged by the owner, Mark. The harbour village is full of great restaurants and bars, with a few local traditional jewels to take full advantage of your Turkish experience. From the harbour you can take fabulous boat trips to explore the glorious coastline.

Villa Waratah sits above the harbour, with sublime views whether your swimming in the infinity pool, sunbathing or eating on the large sun terrace. These views are extended to each of the five well sized ensuite bedrooms. It is exceptionally well maintained and equipped with maid service provided midweek to clean and change over towels.

For those active guests the walk into Kalkan is invigorating, for those that prefer the easier life or just over overendulged in the local hospitality, a taxi can be arranged through Ozi.

From the beginning communication with Mark has been superb, prompt and very helpful, together with the contacts he has built up locally, this all leads to a memorable stay in Kalkan.

Would I recommend Kalkan and in particular, Villa Waratah?

Most definitely

What a wonderful two weeks we have just had in the beautiful Kalkan. The Villa was spectacular with the most spectacular views:) It has everything you could need and the Mamhut who looks after the place out there could not be more helpful. The local shop delivers ice, beers and anything else you need at the drop of a hat and taxi"s are everywhere.

The bbq area and pool are beautiful day and night and lots of space for everyone to enjoy. The kitchen is well equipped and the bedrooms/unsuite are all a great size and very comfortable.

I could not recommend this Villa enough and we will be back.

Many thanks.

Absolutely fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fabulous holiday in Kalkan staying a this beautiful villa. There is plenty of space and the doors that open onto the terraces are perfect. Our family including four young grandchildren enjoyed it all especially the pool! Getting into Kalkan centre takes only a few minutes by taxi and they are very cheap and plentiful. Lots of shops and wonderful restaurants to choose from. Eating in the villa was easy as it's very well equipped.

Ozi who looked after us at the villa with transport and trips out was brilliant, nothing was too much trouble. The views of the bay from every level are amazing. Definitely will go again, this was unanimous!
