“A brilliant place to stay”
“Villa Sea Breeze is just the most gorgeous, sumptuous villa I have ever stayed in. The furniture, soft furnishing and decorations are all high end and all look really plush. You can tell that a lot of thought must have gone into the design. The bathrobes were a lovely touch and the luxury bathroom products made me feel really spoilt there. The beds are very comfy (I normally have problems sleeping in new beds, but not there) and we even had feather pillows to sink into at night. And talk about beds – what an amazing treat to wake up to those fabulous views! The views are fab from all the beds, but next time I go I will fight for the master bedroom – in there you can wake up, open your eyes and be faced with a view truly to die for.
The swimming pool and Jacuzzi looked extremely tempting but when we went in February it was too cold for swimming so I can’t wait to try them out when I go back later this year.
The villa is a large one with plenty of seating, plenty of crockery, cutlery and pans so we were never short of anything we needed. There was a lot to keep us entertained during our nights in with games tables, board games and TV’s in 3 of the bedrooms plus the one in the lounge. (One is a 3D TV). All have Apple TV and I hadn’t realised how much you can do with Apple TV linked to an i-pad! The wi-fi works well throughout the villa so we were able to keep in touch when we wanted.
The management team fell over themselves to help at every opportunity and Ramazan reliably brought us fresh bread each morning for breakfast. The stunning views from the villa are as a result of it being up a steep hill high above the village.
The walk down to the shops and harbour is an enjoyable 10 minute one, but we opted for a taxi back each time. The taxis are reasonable (TL14 when we were there) and I would think that in the summer heat it would be even more necessary. Kalkan village is a cute place with loads of restaurants and places to sit and while away some time people watching.
The beach in Kalkan is a pebble one so we went to Patara beach just down the road (I think it was about 10 minutes by car) and found that it was miles and miles of quite unspoilt sand and sea with only us on it. I will be interested to see what it is like in the busier months, but I was told by the locals that it is still a relatively quiet beach even then.
We went to stay in Villa Sea Breeze in February for two weeks. We weren’t expecting much in the way of sun but actually had the most beautiful weather one week and a few days of rain the next. Even then it was relatively warm, though, and bright.
Prior to going, the owners of the villa, Suzanne and Jon, were very attentive to all my questions and very accurate and honest in their replies, so thanks for your help guys! We had a brilliant time there and can’t wait to go back in the summer.”
