Stayed mid-May 2023 for 11 nights. The villa was just perfect, the views from the top floor balcony in particular are stunning, both down into town centre/bay, & up to the mountains behind. 3 x lovely bedrooms. Spacious kitchen with every amenity you could ever need, loads of space in the living room. Outside area is fantastic - loads of seating space, sunbeds & parasols, table & chairs to eat outside, pool with a lovely waterfall feature & lights. Ramazan the property manager comes every day to take care of the outside space/pool. Jim the villa owner organised a lovely bottle of wine in the fridge along with some basics (bread, butter, jam, milk type of thing) which was very helpful when we arrived after a long day's travel, & provided an exhaustive tip sheet about the villa, about Kalkan & the local area, tips about eating out/getting round, & checked in during our stay to make sure all good. Short walk from the villa to the top of the main street into town, we tended to walk in & get a taxi back (big taxi rank just as you get into the main town area, plus little yellow taxi boxes around, e.g. at Supermarkets - press the button & your taxi arrives within a few minutes). 60-70 Lira taxi fare to get you home at the end of the night, very reasonable.
We've stayed in the town centre before, & on the outskirts - this villa is the perfect combination of comfort & outdoor space/privacy that you'd struggle to get closer to town.
Would 100% stay again, thanks so much! Stuart & Rachel
What can I say about this Villa … Just amazing ! Spotlessly clean throughout .Kitchen has everything you need ,lounge is really comfortable and easily fitted us all in .Great Wi-Fi throughout . Air conditioning worked a treat too to keep us cool .
Bedrooms are spacious …spotlessly clean …showers and bathrooms are great and spacious lovely bathroom towels.
The pool area is just fabulous ..great loungers, beach and pool towels provided , a seated area under shade and also an outside dining area .Pool is fantastic too .
We loved having our pre dinner wine on the terrace at the top of the Villa and the views are truly lovely watching the sunset .
Villa is in a quite area overlooking Kalkan , it is at the top of a very steep hill , we walked down a few times , the taxi from the town back up the hill to the Villa was £3 every time but worth it to be in this beautiful Villa and peaceful spot in Villa Sarajen .James is so helpful throughout your stay as is the lovely guy in kalkan who calls in to check all ok .
I cannot recommend this beautiful Villa enough ..Myself and our friends who visited are quite fussy and this Villa is absolutely stunning .
We stayed in Villa Sarajen in August 2022 and had the most amazing 10 night stay ever! Pool is a great size and lots of sun loungers and parasols that can be moved around. Also 2 different tables out near the pool that were great for outdoor dining. There was a well stocked kitchen with fridge/freezer, cooker, oven, dishwasher and all the utensils, cups, plates etc that you need. Also the water cooler was amazing to have. Livingroom was really cosy and had a tv with lots of channels and streaming options. All the bedrooms and toilets were a great size and beds really comfy - great bonus having aircon all throughout the villa. 2 bedrooms had nice balcony's with somewhere to sit. The roof terrace was one of the best parts of the villa - amazing views and a great place to sit for sunrise and sunset with a table and chairs. The villa was in a great location with shops near by, and only a 15 min walk down to the town centre then a 5 mins taxi back. Marion and James were great with recommendations and there were leaflets in the villa with different things to do. Kalkan itself has loads to do and was the perfect mix of touristy and traditional. Will definitely be back in 2023 and would recommend villa sarajen to everyone!
Fabulous villa, fabulous location, fabulous hosts. Pictures don’t do it justice. Marion & Clell have thought of everything and always on hand to answer any questions you may have. Very reasonable priced & would not hesitate to book again.
I stayed at villa Sarajen in June 2022. What a fabulous holiday & Villa! Kalkan is around 90mins from Dalaman airport. We arrived at the villa and were very surprised, it was very comfortable, very homely, the owners have thought of everything for your stay. There is a great TV with Netflix etc for those relaxing nights when you want to stay in, everything you needed in the kitchen. Great showers in the bedrooms & of course air conditioning! The bedrooms are a great size, two with terraces. The roof terrace has the most fabulous views & makes for a romantic meal if that is what you want. The pool & pool area was lovely & clean. Marion the owner was great with communication & her recommendations of days out & also where to eat helped a first time visitor greatly. Marion recommended great restaurants, the Zest beach club, the Turkish baths & a great boat trip. All so easy for the people staying. First time in Kalkan and first time in Villa Sarajen, will definitely be back & if anyone books they are sure to have a fabulous holiday. Thanks Marion 😊
Getting to the end of our holiday in Kalkan Villa is superb. Photos do not do it justice. Lots of special touches that makes it special. The owners put a lot into attention to detail . Pool good size . Outside space fantastic. Lots of sun beds , seating etc around pool but also small balconies and a terrace if you need some quiet space. Kitchen well stocked. Water cooler a absolute winner. After 24 hours I was booking next years slot. Wi-Fi and to channels etc if you need a bit of inside time. Wee supermarket very close by . All essentials able to buy there . Very reasonable. Short taxi ride to town. We sometimes walked and got taxi home. Did I mention the view. You can’t beat it. Might erase this review as it might get too popular and I can’t get availability in future 😂. Kalkan as a holiday resort is one of the best I’ve been to. We did a boat trip, Turkish baths and beach club. All recommended by owners . If you love food you’ll think you’ve died and gone to heaven. Thank you Marion and Clell x
Just spent a week in Villa Sarajen end of September, what a great villa. The views are fantastic, the place so clean, loved the roof terrace, what a great space for pre's. Ramazan the Housekeeoer was so helpful, he arranged and cooked a BBQ for us one night, fab food. The resort is great loads of restaurants, beachclubs and boats trips. I've booked for next year.
Just spent a fabulous 8 nights at this wonderful villa. Spacious, super clean with a great pool. Loved the roof terrace for pre dinner drinks and great views. Hosts were so informative and on hand quickly to answer any questions. Definitely recommend -
