Outstanding holiday at at Outstanding Villa

Our two-week stay at Villa Turquoise in the picturesque town of Kalkan, Turkey, owned by our hosts Steve and Lindsey, was an absolute dream come true for our family. From the moment we set foot on the property, all our expectations were not only met but exceeded in the most remarkable of ways. From our first interaction with Lindsey during the inquiry stage, any doubts were swiftly put to rest. Her responsiveness, warmth, and genuine interest in ensuring our family’s comfort and satisfaction immediately set the tone for the exceptional experience that awaited us.

The villa’s online photos hinted at its luxury, but it was only upon our arrival that we realised how truly awe-inspiring both the accommodation and the views could be. The breathtaking panorama of Kalkan’s azure waters and rugged mountains served as an ever-present backdrop to our stay, and no photograph could capture the sheer magnificence that greeted us every morning as we stepped onto the terrace. Every detail of Villa Turquoise seemed thoughtfully designed to create an atmosphere of luxury, relaxation, and togetherness. The spacious common areas effortlessly accommodated our large group, offering both communal spaces for lively family gatherings and cosy nooks for moments of solitude. 

The attention to detail was apparent in every corner of the villa. From the meticulously maintained garden with vibrant flowers to the well-equipped kitchen that had everything we needed to channel our inner chefs, to the charmingly furnished lounging area – every aspect of Villa Turquoise spoke volumes about Steve and Lindsey’s dedication to providing an exceptional holiday experience. 

If you’re seeking an outstanding holiday destination that can cater to a multigenerational family with varying tastes and interests, look no further than Villa Turquoise, Steve and Lindsey have created a masterpiece that marries luxury with comfort, and their hospitality will leave you feeling like a cherished guest in their own home. Our family is forever grateful for the memories we created in this idyllic haven, and we eagerly look forward to returning next year, having already booked.

The most incredible villa

Another amazing holiday at Villa Turquoise! The villa is absolutely stunning, every last detail has been considered and every year we are amazed that Lindey continues to improve on an already stunning villa. The decoration is perfect for Turkey, giving you a luxurious but relaxed feel. Each of the rooms is very spacious, the beds are really comfortable and we love that each room has its own balcony, perfect for an early evening G&T! The panoramic views from the roof terrace are better than any picture shows them to be and our family loved all of the outdoor space and the beautiful gardens.
Lindsey was a great host, from organising transfers and recommending day trips and restaurants. She has an extensive knowledge of Kalkan and the surrounding areas and was always more than happy to help us. We cannot wait to return next year, thank you so much Lindsey.

The Most Breathtaking Villa
Villa Turquoise is simply the most beautiful villa with outstanding views. The whole property is decorated and furnished to the highest possible standard and extremely comfortable. All the bedrooms (double/king) are extremely spacious again taking in the amazing views, all with well presented bathrooms. The kitchen is very modern and houses everything you could possibly need a real home from home. Every little detail has been thought about in this villa, the owners really have covered all corners to make the stay such a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.

As good as it gets 5/5

Villa Turquoise is a spectacular villa. And it is more. The local suppliers who service the property mean that you want for nothing and feel incredibly priviledged; cars, supplies, tours to tour door all within minutes of a quick whatsapp message. The view are lovely. Really nice restaurants with friendly staff within a few mins walk. We loved the table tennis and the pool is as perfect as can be. In our 1 week we went to Patara and Fethiye and Xanthos – all worth the trip – and the boat trip from Kekova to see the ancient town on the cliffs was a highlight. Lindsey was delightful to deal with and the most helpful villa owner we have come across.

Amazing holiday

We spent a week in the villa turquoise and had a fantastic time. The villa is beautifully decorated and very well equipped. with amazing views. We spent most days relaxing by the pool, then wandered into Kalkan in the evenings to enjoy the many bars and restaurants. Would definitely go back.

A beautiful modern villa with lovely views.
We had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay at Villa Turquoise. The villa has everything you need for a family holiday and plenty of room for a group of 7. It is very comfortable and the master bedrooms have amazing sea views. We loved the garden and there were so many lovely places to sit outside, including the roof terrace with an incredible panoramic view. We enjoyed the local beach club at Kalamar bay and our teenage girls particularly liked the sofa rides!! It’s a very short taxi ride into Kalkan and we discovered some great restaurants, some lovely shops and a very relaxing Turkish massage at a local Hamman. Lindsey, the owner was very helpful, answered all our questions very promptly and provided lots of useful information for our stay.

Beautiful villa with amazing sea views
We had a fantastic holiday. The Villa is beautiful. From the time of booking until the time of departure Lindsey made us feel looked after, sending us all the information we might require and arranging transfers from the airport. Unlike other holiday villas we have stayed in, Villa Turquoise feels very much like someone’s home with personal touches throughout. We loved it! The villa is spacious – there were 7 of us and we had plenty of space. The maintenance team keep the villa and grounds spotless. Having a mobile phone to use is a really helpful touch. There are a few good restaurants really close to the villa so there’s no need to go into the town every night. We all loved our stay at Villa Turquoise. Thank you Lindsey, you have a beautiful home in Kalkan. I’m sure we’ll be back.

Couldn’t have asked for more
How we wish we were back in Kalkan, we had an amazing time and the villa was stunning, couldn’t have asked for more, thank you.


Amazing holiday at a stunning villa
Lindsey was amazing from the first contact to arranging the transfers to the villa. Any questions about the villa and Kalkan were answered quickly. We meet Ali the manager on the first day and as we only had to contact him via Whatsapp on the day we were leaving just to confirm the transfer. He has an office in town and he is very easy to get hold of by phone. When arriving at the villa it was even better than the photos. There were so many seating areas outside to sit and chill or sunbathe. The favourite place to read was under the pergola. You get 360 panoramic views on the roof terrace and we loved having an early evening drink up there. The property is stocked with everything you could want and the decor was amazing. We have been to Kalkan twice before staying in different villas, this villa has the best location and was so close to be able to walk to do a daily shop, you can walk to Kalamar Beach club (well worth a trip or two) and a nice walk into the town. I would recommend this villa to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday but being close enough to everything Kalkan has to offer. We did the water sports at Kalamar Beach club and hired out their jet skis, which my 12 and 13 year old children really enjoyed. We also hired a boat which is the best day out, as the food abroad was stunning as were the bays we stopped at. Everything about this years holiday was brilliant and thank you Lindsey and family. for allowing us to stay at your beautiful villa.

Outstanding Kalkan villa with incredible views
Villa Turquoise is the most beautiful place for a holiday in Kalkan. Views over Kalamar Bay are sublime and there is so much outside space to enjoy – at least 5 different seating areas – and yet it doesn’t feel as overwhelmingly big as some of Kalkan’s other properties. It’s very well equipped and a huge amount of thought has gone into making a stay there as relaxing as possible – the provision of a pay as you go mobile so calling taxis and booking restaurants can be done without damaging your own phone bill, for example! They also have the comfiest bed I’ve ever slept in! We have visited Kalkan before and cannot recommend it highly enough!

Villa Turquoise exceeded our expectations
We were recommended to go to Kalkan by friends who tipped us off about Villa Turquoise. Villa Turquoise certainly exceeded our expectations. The photos don’t do it justice – it’s much better in real life – extremely spacious and spotlessly clean. Even though we went in early April we lovely sunny weather each day. The view from the bedroom is tremendous, and the various outside seating areas mean you can move around with the sun. The relaxed atmosphere of Kalkan, the friendly people and the good reasonably priced restaurants made our stay easy and stress free, although the kitchen is really well equipped if you choose to eat in. We hired a scooter which made popping round easy and good fun. The staff were great and the bread delivery service well worth it. All in all a great break – 7 days was not enough! Thanks Lindsey.

Simply Brilliant
We have been holidaying in Villas as a family for many years all over the world and without doubt Villa Turquoise is magnificent – the best we have ever stayed in! From our initial booking Lindsey was helpful in the extreme providing useful details and assistance. Upon arrival the Villa was immaculately clean, very well equipped and was as beautiful in reality as the pictures suggest. During our stay, we were looked after by the maintenance team who were equally outstanding providing prompt and efficient service from cleaning to daily bread and water deliveries, nothing was too much trouble. For those who have not been to Kalkan, it is stunning and full of great restaurants with lots of great local trips and days out making it a brilliant place to stay. Add the Villa Turquoise, Lindsey and her team and you have all you need for an outstanding, never to be forgotten holiday. Often in life it seems things are frequently not quite as advertised, but for the Villa Turquoise you have no worries, it is simply brilliant. Thank you Lindsey for lending us your beautiful Villa for the best holiday ever – we will be back!
