Lale Kemali Gonzales purchased this villa in 2010
Bella Vista is in a very unique, peaceful location. The villa is brand new, spacious and has so much to offer. I was fascinated by the beautiful Mediterranean sea view the moment I saw it!
Kas has so much to offer, it is a fantastic location for doing all kinds of sports, sailing, jogging, yoga, trekking and swimming. There is a very peaceful, relaxing atmosphere here. I am always inspired and energised by the beauty of the nature.
Our family spent a wonderful and relaxing week at Bella Vista. The villa is spacious, clean and well equipped for all your needs. With AC in all rooms this certainly helps with night temps in the mid 20s. The private pool is a godsend when sunning yourself on the generous veranda while there is ample space to relax either in the sun or in the shade. The villa is surrounded by a large garden which encloses the villa creating a very private area. The decor and fittings are comfortable and modern providing a home from home feeling. Access to Kas town is by taxi for around 10€ one way and the local drivers are very friendly though there is a local bus which drives by every half hour or so. Ralph, the owner, made our welcome very warm with a well stocked fridge to get us started, much appreciated. If you feel energetic there is a nice 5.5km run around the peninsula road but I suggest you do this very early in the morning or late in the evening. We are certainly considering a return to Ralph and Lale's piece of paradise and being more energetic than lolling around the pool for the week perhaps diving or sailing. So let's see. We will certainly be recommending this property to our friends and acquaintances. Adios!!
To begin with, the pictures do not do justice to the property. The outdoor space is very large and accommodating for a big group . The home provides so much room for entertaining and privacy.
The view...perfect. Home spotless.
Last but not least, the owner is the best hostess one can ask for. You feel very welcome upon arrival and she is always available to give suggestions about the local area. I have recommended the home to my friends in Turkey and look forward to our return to Bella Vista!
If dates are available...book it.
Our week at Villa del Mare in July 2009 was marvelous! The villa is large, charming, very modern, clean and confortable, tastefully decorated, with a mix of traditional and modern design. The view on the sea and the island of Meis from the terrasse and the balcony is just amazing. The swimming pool with the same view is beautifull, it has the perfect size to relax and refresh.The garden surrounding the villa is a real romantic mediteranean garden with olive trees and wild flowers. A small path leads directly from the villa to the sea and two small and cute restaurants. Kas is just 10 minutes drive, and you can easily catch a dolmus to go there and return.
Lale, the owner of the villa, is a very nice and welcoming person. She didn't just rent out the villa, she was also a real travel guide, sending us lots of advice about good restaurants, nice shops, unforgetable excursions, typical food, car rental prices...etc. Thanks to her we really felt at home in the villa.
We recommand Villa del Mare more than warmly. The place is magic and unforgetable.
