We have now arrived back in London after a wonderful 2 weeks in Kalkan. We had a brilliant time, the villa was wonderful, it was an extremely relaxing place to be and Ahmet was charming and very helpful.
We did most things on your suggested on 'days out' and had a lovely day on the boat. All went well apart from on Thursday after our son and daughter had gone scuba diving, they unfortunately came to the surface too quickly and both had to go on a drip over night (at the villa) but all is OK - the doctors at the medical centre were very good.
Anyway - thank you again for all your help in making our holiday so enjoyable.

My stay at Carole and Don's Villa Incantata, was by far, the best vacation property I have experienced. There were only two of us, but this 4 story unit could have entertained a nice sized party easily. The maid and gardener were both pleasant and thorough. The well kept pool was my favorite area, and the multi-tiered lanscaped gardens were a beautiful surrounding to rest in. This property is gorgeous, and actually it's built on three lots. Flooring and decking inside and out are covered with quality tile. As well, the ornamental tile found in the bathrooms from the floor to the top of each wall, was very well done. Very good taste and planning were used in designing this property. The oversized tub with Jacuzzi was very relaxing, and probably my second favorite spot. The people in the village of Kalkan are simply nice and friendly. The few tourists I found there in June, came to relax, and so did we. You must take one of the day boats on the bay while there. If you are lucky, maybe Carole will take you up to a fish house in the cool forest above the bay. You will find her character easy to befriend, as well as the neighbors in this hillside paradise. The view is breathtaking, on each of the many terraces at this property. All in all, my two week stay hovered in the perfect zone. I'm going back.

Our family of 6 from California rented Carole and Don's home in the summer of 2005. We stayed for one week in Kalkan. We enjoyed every aspect of their home. It is by far the loveliest home, with great attention to detail. The balconies were our favorite spot. One off the kitchen as Carole suggested for breakfast, the other off the dining area for dinner, the highest balcony for sunset or a romantic drink under the moonlight. On the back deck our daughters loved the pool and ping pong table. They also loved staying in their suite downstairs. The living room and dining room were decorated lovely with touches of Carole's lives in different countries. The beds and sheets make you feel as though you are transported to a special place for your vacation. A stay at this home is like a piece of heaven!!!
