STYLISH VILLA WITH PRIVATE POOL ON THE EXCLUSIVE PENINSULA

Kas Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, office for up to 6 people

This beautifully appointed luxury villa on the exclusive Kas peninsula is just 10 minutes away from the charming bohemian seaside town of Kas. The villa features a large private pool (40 sq m) and is located on a corner block, on the sea side of the truly beautiful peninsula. It is close to the new marina and enjoys magnificent sunsets. Set in a large Mediterranean landscaped garden, Villa Aphrodite has been architect designed to ensure maximum privacy, comfort and tranquility. Contemporary décor features throughout, with oodles of travertine marble, stylish Turkish rugs and European designer furniture. Reverse cycle air-conditioning/heating on both floors ensures comfort in any season. The villa features a digital TV in the living room, CD/DVD player, a large collection of DVDs, 2 docking stations for your iPods, another flat panel TV in the master bedroom and wifi. There is a private office area downstairs. All bedrooms feature en suites with walk-in wardrobes. The large master bedroom features a stunning stainless steel 4-poster king-size bed and a wall-mounted TV. Wake up to magnificent sea and mountain views from all bedrooms. All 2 week bookings include complimentary airport transfers.

Relaxing: Inside, you can choose a movie from the villa's DVD collection and relax in front of the flat-panel satellite TV, or listen to your favourite tunes on the sound system. Comfort is guaranteed on the neutral-coloured, stylish couches and easy chairs.

Outside, just step through French doors to the outdoor pool terrace and attractive garden where you can sit back and soak up the sun on the sleek and stylish Luna sun-loungers, shaded by elegant cream and teak umbrellas. To cool down, just dip into the architect designed private pool and sip on your favourite sun downer as you drink in the views of Kas Marina and beyond to the majestic Taurus mountains.

Entertaining: If cooking is your thing, Turkey is a food lover's paradise with sun-drenched fruit and vegetables, fresh seafood, and wild herbs all oozing flavour. A fully equipped marble/stainless steel gourmet kitchen features a 5-burner gas hob, hood extractor, large, fan-assisted oven, dishwasher, espresso and pasta machines. Meals can be enjoyed inside in the stylish dining area adjoining the kitchen.

If you fancy dining al fresco, you can move outside to the terrace, which features contemporary outdoor furniture from Gloster, UK. A barbecue allows you to add that special outdoor flavour to fresh sea bass or home made kebabs from the butchers in Kas. If you just want to relax and leave the cooking to someone else, Fuat our property caretaker will prepare and cook (and clean up afterwards) a traditional Turkish barbecue for you on request, at a very reasonable rate. Fuat also delivers fresh bread to you each morning. There is a utility room next to the kitchen.

Sleeping: Upstairs at Villa Aphrodite are three spacious and indulgently appointed bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom featuring stylish mosaics, glass shower screens and Egyptian cotton towels. The master bedroom includes a four-poster king-size bed, private seating area, wall-mounted TV/DVD, walk-in wardrobe, plus en-suite bathroom featuring a separate walk-in shower and spa bath. French doors lead to a sea-facing balcony. The double bedroom includes a walk-in wardrobe, en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower and balcony. The twin bedroom includes a walk-in wardrobe, en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower and French doors leading to the sea-facing balcony.

We built our villa when we were living in The UAE but now have moved back to Australia. Luckily, our academic work sometimes allows us to make the big trip to beautiful Kas. In 2013, we've spent a glorious 10 weeks here.

Liz Maxwell purchased this villa in 2005

The peninsula where the villa is located is peaceful and yet, very close to Kas town with its great restaurants and shopping. We love the fact the villa's on the seaside of the peninsula so you get to see gulets and yachts sailing by. We think it's a very stylish villa with qulaity furnishings, lots of glass and a gorgeous pool area. We hope you love it as much as we do!

The villa is not overlooked and has a very lush garden. The peninsula is quite exclusive and has lots of green all around.

Luxury villa with fabulous views

I have visited Villa Aphrodite twice and it is an amazing villa for a relaxing holiday in the sun. The location is very private and yet only a 5 minute taxi drive from the lovely unspoilt fishing town of Kas. In Kas there are plenty of restaurants to choose from. The villa is very clean and well maintained. The pool is a good size to swim in and the views surrounding the villa are simply breathtaking. I would recommend this villa if you want a holiday for private relaxation and sunbathing in the day and a variety of good food/wine in the evening.
Recommended for:  Tourists without a Car, Romantic Getaway
Owner's Response: It was terrific to welcome you back to the villa Laura. Thanks for your very positive comments. I do feel the villa and its tranquil and scenic location on the peninsula is indeed ideal for a truly relaxing holiday and Kas now boasts well over 50 restaurants and bars yet retains its charming bohemian, Turkish feel. We hope to see you again soon!

Found villa on internet and booked directly with Liz the owner who was more than helpful with recommendations including car hire and transfers from airport. All went smoothly, transfer waiting on arrival plus car waiting at villa as was Fuat the ever helpful caretaker, who does a fantastic BBQ with the help of his wife Neriman.
Initial plan was a week in Kas and one in Kalkan but hadn't booked the second week. Decided to use Kas as base and after four days we arranged to stay a second week via Liz ( living in Sydney) who gave us a great deal on the second week plus the chance to stay very late on our last day forour midnight flight to UK.
Villa is beautiful with views from the patio over the pool towards the sunset as it dropped behind the hills of the mainland. Very well equipped for six with two double and a twin room each with walk in wardrobe and en suite. Fourth bathroom downstairs for showering when leaving the pool. Fully equipped large sized kitchen (if you REALLY want to cook when you are on holiday!) with both indoor and outdoor dining adjacent including perfect BBQ.
Kas a great spot to use as a base with the most relaxed feel possible and some great cafe/bars and restaurants.
We were there as couple but never felt as if it was too big. It would be ideal for family holidays or a group of friends. Dolmus (mini bus) service from doorstap to Kas takes 10 mins and costs 4.5 YTL for two. Many comments about the Cukubag peninsulas say car is essentil/recommended but this is not necessary. We had a car for the full two weeks but it stood at the drive for at least half the time so you could easily manage with simply hiring for the odd days here and there for trips to sites of interest.
All in all a great place to stay and a lovely lady to deal with for all arrangements.
By the way, if you go to Kas make sure you have dinner at Bijout restaurant. Hardly gets a mention on Trip Advisor but is a lovely Ottoman town house set in a beautiful tiny walled garden. Only 14 covers and everything cooked by the owner freshly for you so don't be in a hurry. Easily the prettiest restaiurant and best food in Kas.

Just wonderful!

We stayed at the Villa for 2 weeks in September and just loved it! We wanted to chill out away from everything but be close enough to town and that's exactly what the villa offered!! The villa is perfectly positioned to get sun all day (many others don’t) so it is perfect for lazing by the pool and watching the sun go down over the bay. Although there are other homes around, none of them overlook the villa and invade your privacy at all. It’s perfectly quiet, serene and relaxing. There is also a wonderful view of the sea and surrounding mountains from the patio, with a lovely pool for a deep dip. The only thing we felt was slightly missing was sunlounger cushions for that extra touch.

We didn’t rent a car, but with the dolmus stopping regularly literally right outside the door, we could easily pop into town in the evenings for dinner or shopping during the day. We also went to some beaches nearby which were easily (& cheaply) accessible by other dolmus's in the centre. The villa was gorgeous - light, airy and spacious, perched on the beautiful peninsula. Every room has its own balcony, ensuite bathroom and walk in closet. It's also well decorated – modern and bright (with Turkish touches) but homey and welcoming with all needed facilities.

Fuat, the caretaker, was also super friendly and was available if we needed anything at all, otherwise he was incredibly unobtrusive. We would highly recommend asking him to bring fresh bread every morning – delicious, cheap and warm, left on your front door. The previous reviewer must have stayed just before we did and I must comment that we didn’t share the majority of their complaints. We spent every day by the pool and never once noticed any “missing tiles” or “broken paving”. We also didn’t see “delaminating doors”, “window rot”, “problematic light fittings” or “loose towel rails” in the house. We watched lots of movies so had no problems at all with the DVD player.

In summary, we thought the villa was brilliantly located, nicely looked after and had everything we could have wanted for a wonderful relaxing break! We have already recommended to our friends and if in Kas in the future, would not hesitate to book at the villa again!

Loved Turkey and Kas. Villa a disappointment

  • 2 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 7, 2012

Arriving at the villa, I was shocked to realize the proximity of the adjacent villas. 7 metres between the patio pool side and the neighbour’s chimney is not a “good distance” as described in a pre-booking communication with the owner.

Whilst the villa is beautiful, it shows signs of neglect. There is no villa sign as mentioned in the owner’s directions. It has completely disintegrated and is now obscured by foliage.

The support columns of the dual gates to the rear car park have collapsed making it inaccessible. There are tiles missing from the swimming pool. The paved terrace by the barbeque has broken leaving a particularly dangerous edge. The doors to the three bedrooms are delaminating and are ill-fitting, the central one not latching at all. The semi-circular window frames around the spiral staircase are exhibiting a fair degree of rot. The grey-painted balustrades are corroding, staining the marble of the master bedroom balcony. Many interior light fittings did not work. The towel rail in the master bathroom was loose and fell off repeatedly. There is black mould evident on the sealing grout in all shower trays.

The owner’s guide book was out of date and entries were edited by previous guests. For example, it extolled the virtues of various restaurants and establishments that no longer existed. The instructions for the AV system were incorrect and we could achieve audio from the DVD player but no video.

The “infinity pool” is a misnomer. The definition is “a swimming pool set up to produce a visual effect of the water extending to the horizon (infinity) or into the sea”. The only visual effect you have is of the roof of the villa directly in front!

We were unfortunate enough to have damaged a mosquito net when it attached itself to an exposed 50w spotlight within 15cm of the bed. The material was without doubt, nylon/polyester as it melted rather than burned. The owner withheld a significant proportion of our deposit to purchase a pure cotton replacement at £115. A classic case of opportunistic profiteering.

My seven year old son fell down the spiral staircase entrapping his arm between the staircase and exterior wall. He suffered lacerations and bruising to his upper arm. Suffice to say there is not a continuous handrail on the staircase –Not exactly child friendly!

Definitely my worst villa rental in thirty years.

Great holiday

We had a wonderful relaxing holiday in Villa Aphrodite and couldn't have asked for better weather. Fuat the caretaker was helpful in answering any questions we asked and the fresh bread he delivered every morning was lovely and convenient. The listing description was accurate but although it says the villa has a computer, it doesn't mention that it also has WiFi - this was pleasantly unexpected but came in really handy when it came to keeping in touch with home.
We rented a car through the deal Liz provides - a rental car for 2 weeks and airport transfers all for a reasonable price - and this proved to be a very good move.
We found Kas was an ideal town for eating out - plenty of restaurants serving delicious food at prices cheaper than we expected. The locals are all very friendly and the majority speak English.

' The Kas Peninsula in Turkey, boasts such a spectacular coastline - turquoise seas, pine-clad hills and cafe-lined harbours.' Mark Hodson, Sunday Times, January 7, 2007: Summer 100 - the planet's best holidays.

Kas is a delightful seaside town that has managed to preserve its unique charm and character despite its increasing popularity with tourists and travellers. Its stunning location on the island-studded Turkish Mediterranean coast with rugged mountains rising up from the shoreline is the stuff of dreams. The bustling harbour, where each morning fishermen sell fresh-caught seafood, and from which you can take excursions to the many surrounding islands, is lined with traditional tea gardens. Right next to the harbour the main Town Square provides a focal point where locals and tourists blend seamlessly. Fanning out from here, narrow jasmine-scented, alleys overlooked by traditional Ottoman balconies and packed with restaurants, bars, cafes and shops, await exploration.

Other Activities: SCUBA diving, canoeing, kayaking
