We are back and I must say, THE VILLA WAS ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!!!
More than we could ever have imagined... We were wowed, stunned, grateful and pleasantly surprised at every turn. Each day became richer and better. We loved having "our own home" and being able to cook. Villas clearly are the only way to travel. Our 5-star hotel in Istanbul was a huge disappointment after the villa. There is no way we could have known how much we would love villa-style-living and the ability to both be peaceful at home and then forage out to such wonderful sights (ruins at Patara were also amazing) when desired.
So, thank you, thank you, thank you.
The villa itself is fabulous. I'm sure everybody says that. While it sounds like there had been problems in the past (power, bugs, etc). we encountered NOT ONE snag in our stay. We loved every bit of it, especially the pool, the terraces and the master bedroom and bath upstairs. Someone was kind enough to leave a couple of rafts under the downstairs stairs for our Extreme Pool Pleasure (great move! I hope they
remain) and we did much of our dining al fresco under the sun, moon, and shameless swathe of creamy Milky Way which materialized nightly after the Moon had made her pass and just dazzled us to no end. The telescope on the middle terrace is a GREAT ADDITION.
We indulged in much star gazing and exploration of the mountain range to the south of the villa where there are ancient terraces which, we learned from Hasan, our most excellent host at the Bodamya Restaurant, the village folks used to take their animals to graze for nourishment and to keep them out of home gardens.

The villa was way beyond my expectations, once you see it all together with the green of the trees, the ocean and the mountains as a backdrop, it is really breathtaking.
It was very peaceful, and I loved the personal touches the owners had all over the villa, their pictures, etc.
The drive from the Dalaman airport is quite long, if you get there at night you'd be lost.
The town of Kalkan and Kas were magnificent, about a 15 minute drive. There are also other beaches and Saklikent, the ruins, Patara Beach.... there is a lot to do.

It was a fabulous week at a spectacular villa with breathtaking views. While the photos are good, they don’t quite capture the magnificent setting and views. I wish that we had stayed there two weeks, rather than one. There is so much to see and do in the area, and yet it is nice to have time at the villa.
The pool and terrace! The well-stocked kitchen, the spacious living/dining room, the bedrooms, the bathrooms, the views.
It is perched on a hill/mountain just outside of the village of Islamlar (not much there but a mosque and 5 fresh trout restaurants!) and about 15 minutes from the upscale seaside resort town of Kalkan.
