"Perfect Vacation Rental"
I have rented many properties in Turkey - both in Cesme and Bodrum. I have not been to this part of Turkey before and will definitely be back. The property was both comfortable on the inside and luxurious outside. The pool area was amazing. And the location felt very private - which is not how my other rentals were. The house has everything you could possibly need. The bedroom I stayed in (on the second floor) had this lovely balcony where you could sit and have your morning coffee. The bedrooms are big and the beds are comfortable. Every bedroom has its own bathroom. It is about a five minute drive into the town of Kalkan - where there are many fine restaurants. Look on trip advisor to find restaurant reviews - try a rooftop terrace that overlooks the sea. When the sun is going down - it is just gorgeous. Kalkan is a very friendly town. The shopkeepers are delightful. There is a beach club that is attached to a hotel (I just can't remember the name) that you can rent a sun bed and go swimming. We ate there several times and the food is very good. If you are worried about the language - everyone speaks English. This was a wonderful holiday - the house exceeded my expectations and the area was just beautiful. There is also sailing and boat trips for a very good price. Kaş is a very nice place to visit as well. Thank you for a memorable holiday.

Thank you for such a nice review.
"fantastic"
Our holiday set off easy the way Len organised the transfers etc. The villa is quite beutiful and in a great location, superb views across the bay and only a short walk from Kalkan but far enough away to be peaceful. We loved the large terraceand eating alfresco under the pergola and shaded seating area with BBQ. The swimmng pool is quite large, great for swimming. The agent was helpful and the pool man and maids were friendly and kept the villa very clean and tidy. Kalkan is a lovely holiday resort we liked the roof top restaurants and the harbour side with attractive bars. The food is very good and the Turkish wine surprisingly good. We shall be back !!!

"Quality!!! Enough said really"
This vacation was probably the easiest to set up we have ever booked. Len's assistance and advice were 2nd to none. I think he covered all the bases and this made for a relaxed stress free stay. The villa was excellent and what a superb view especially from the balcony. Kalkan is a lovely town with very friendly folk and the beauty of it is is that it's free from over commercialisation. The food is superb, I would recommend Trio's, great service and the staff are excellent. I would highly recommend staying at this villa. We intend to go again in the very near future.

Thank you for the Compliment. I try my best & give honest answers to any questions. Trio's is also our favourite restaurant on the harbour but we & our guest list theirs. Thank you for the Review.
"A great base for your holiday in Kalkan"
Our first time in Kalkan, but certainly not our last. Chose Villa Güzel as we felt its location offered flexibility - you can relax by the pool, walk down into Kalkan and enjoy all that it has to offer or use it as a base from which to explore all the ancient historical sites and beautiful scenery in this area. We were not disappointed. The villa is well appointed and has all that you need to live very comfortably. The bedrooms are spacious, light and airy. I appreciated the mosquito net over each bed. The pool is a good size if you like to get some exercise as well as just lazing in the water on the pool steps. I must also add that Len was a delight to deal with, both by email and over the phone.

"Beautiful Villa"
Villa Güzel is a fabulous holiday home with everything that you could wish for, including a great pool. Spent an idyllic 2 weeks there with my husband and grown up son. Len the owner was extremely helpful and organised all transfers. Would definitely go back and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Thank you for your Review. Hope you visit us again, most of our guests do.
"Fantastic 2 weeks in FAB Villa"
First time in Kalkan. Kids chose the villa due to the quirky appearance of turrett and shape of pool. Letting the kids choose was a fantastic result. Villa was roomy, excellent position, top service from cleaners and pool man. Owner Len prompt with enquiries and honest answers given to all questions. Nicest place in nicest town that we have stayed in. Decent restaurants nearby but all down the hill. It is a bit of a trek from the town but only if hot (15 min steady walk from a large amount of fab restaurants).

"Everything great"
We actually only have good things to report about our stay in Villa Güzel in Kalkan. The description of the Villa in the Internet fits well what is being found upon arrival, no surprises. Dealing with Len was very easy and respectful. The hired local agent (Hakan) and his staff were very helpful, trustworthy and reliable. We also hired a car at Antalya Airport through him, and all went really smoothly. The car was available on time and in the promised quality. The Villa is well equipped and comfortable; we really didn't miss anything. There were even plastic plates and cups for the kids, which helped a lot, since we travelled with a 2- and a 6-year old. The pool with a little side-area for the smaller kids is ideal. We saw most other pools in Kalkan don't have such a section, and that would have been tough for our son. The walk into town is easy, and Kalkan has much to offer in terms of eating and shopping. Everybody is exceptionally friendly. We particularly recommend a little place which you automatically pass on the road up to the Villa called "Our Home". It doesn't look like much, but the food is excellent. We are looking forward to going back.

"Only good things to report about our stay in Villa Güzel" what better praise could we expect from a guest. We are pleased with Hakan our agent & his staff who provide such a good service.
"Lovely villa in good location"
Villa Güzel looks good in the listing and lives up to expectations. The pool and outside areas are of a really good size, especially for Kalkan, not overlooked and really quite private. There are a couple of nice shaded areas for eating or reading. The pool is a really good size with wide steps in. The bedrooms are also really large and each has its own bathroom which is really essential when travelling with teenage daughters as we did. The upstairs master double has a huge balcony with barbecue and table and chairs for six, which we did not use but would be fantastic for a night in. It's a really steep downhill walk into Kalkan, a taxi back is pretty essential and costs about 12 lira or so. There is an excellent little restaurant called Our Home just down the road, it serves really reasonable meals and does a take away service too. Ideal for your first day when you've not yet made it to the shop. Overall we had a lovely week at Villa Guzel and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
