“Everything you thought you wanted and more!”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in October 2014

Super helpful owner, booking easy. Transport effortless. Villa spotless and a great view. Liked Kalamar bay, close to Kalakan for all the great restaurants but just that bit quieter. Villa is very well equipped and the service company are wonderful.

“Wonderful Stay”
Reviewed 23 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had the most wonderful stay in this beautiful villa, with breathtaking views and relaxing infinity pool. The villa is spacious and very well equipped, our instructions and information before we arrived about the villa were great and there is a very informative book available in the villa with information on restaurants, shopping and excursions to take. Highly recommend staying here, we hope to back very soon.

“A hidden gem built and maintained to the highest specification”
Reviewed 13 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had a wonderful week at this villa , everything was top quality and we were so sad to leave. Glorious views of the bay and a roof terrace where you can enjoy the sundowners.
Lots of restaurants nearby and plenty to do in KalKan. An infinity pool that is quite magical and plenty of sun loungers around the property.

“Amazing Stay at the Kalkan Retreat!”
Reviewed 9 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I am not usually one for writing reviews, however having stayed at the Kalkan Retreat I had to make an exception as this is an exceptional villa.

The villa is absolute faultless - comfortable, high spec, great facilities, spacious and spotlessly clean. It has everything you could ever need! The maintenance team/cleaners who come each day are non intrusive and incredibly polite. The owner of the villa is knowledgeable of the area and there is a book which she has written all of her favourite restaurants in which did not disappoint!

The location is perfect and only a short walk to the town centre and the views from all over the villa across the sea....wow! The roof terrace has sun loungers for sunbathing during the day and a large seating area for some star gazing at night!

I really wish I could give this review 6 stars as it really is something special.

Thank you for making my stay so incredibly relaxing. I will absolutely be back to stay at the Kalkan Retreat.

“A perfect villa in a perfect location”
Reviewed 29 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The villa is every bit as beautiful in the flesh as it is in the photographs. Attention to detail is a strong point here - plenty of glasses/cutlery/plates etc for 8 people. Good wifi connection throughout, tv etc. safes also provided. High quality fittings throughout make for a luxury holiday feel, plus the daily maid service. But for me one of the best things is the fantastic view, I managed to read only a few pages of my book the entire week, due to simply sitting relaxing and staring at the beautiful blue sea. The town itself is so charming, the people are delightfully friendly, every restaurant we visited (Doy Doy, Fish Terrace, Aubergine) had a different vista so I could not decide which one was a favourite. Local food and wine also very good. And the weather was fantastic - hot and sunny the whole week, with lovely warm evenings - who could ask for more? Am working on my husband to return!
