Bedrooms 3
Half Baths1
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

3 en-suite bedrooms; 10-15 Min Walk to centre; all mod cons

Barinak is not your average Kalkan villa. Built before the property boom, it has far more space than villas built from 2005 onwards. The ample use of marble and stone also show the quality of this Kalkan holiday property. It’s full of character, which is maintained to the highest standards. Situated on the Kalamar Road, just a 15-min stroll from the old town, you’ll find excellent restaurants and bars nearby. The 3 en-suite bedrooms all face the sea and have access to large verandas with fabulous views. The master suite has a luxury, full bathroom with walk-in rain shower. The roof terrace has a shady Ottoman area with its own mini-kitchen, so you can enjoy chilled wine or cocktails while watching the sun disappear behind the hills. The villa is air-conditioned throughout and insect screens are fitted to windows and doors. The kitchen and all en-suites have been recently refurbished. The villa has wireless internet, satellite TV, DVD player, music centre, books and board games. Outside there is a pretty patio with plants and trees, dining area with ceiling fan, sun loungers and parasols situated around the private pool. There’s even an outdoor shower to rinse off after swimming. Its slightly elevated position allows fabulous views of 2 bays and surrounding hills. There is an office on site with someone to assist with your needs. In addition to the private pool, guests are welcome to swim in the large pool on site in front of the Saneil apartments. We’ve tried to think of everything to make your stay comfortable, including a water cooler and rapid ice maker. We are happy to book transfers and car hire through the very reliable Enes Transport.

About Susan Scarre

We sold the villa in 2010 and now act as booking agent for the current owner, Veronica Packard.

Susan Scarre purchased this villa in 2004

Why Susan Scarre chose Kalkan

We thought this spot had the best of both worlds, being quiet, yet close enough to walk into the centre. The views, particularly from the upper terraces, are sublime. You can see both bays from the villa. It's easy to find, as it's just off the Kalamar Road and most of the taxi drivers know the Saneil complex. A member of staff is usually in the office to assist guests, plus there is free WiFi.

What makes this villa unique

We think this property has just about everything! All the bedrooms are sea-facing, with direct access onto 1 of 2 terraces. Sometimes eating outside can get a bit hot, so there is an outdoor ceiling fan to keep you cool. On the roof terrace there is a secluded Ottoman area with outdoor mini kitchen, where you can enjoy spectacular views whilst sipping a cocktail and reclining on soft cushions. And having a water cooler & ice machine on tap in the kitchen is a real luxury!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My second stay in this lovely villa. Love the private pool and all the garden trees and flowers. Looked after really well by the villa staff who are there to help daily but not intrusive. 2 mins walk to hammam, grocery shop, cafes etc. Villa has everything you need and all the rooms have balcony views. The roof terrace is a Great place to hang out and has it's own little kitchen and fridge. Great sea swimming nearby; I hired a boat for a day to go snorkeling. 🐡🐠🐟Kalkan market on Thursdays is great and even shy me can now haggle happily, its expected. Sue who makes the bookings can give great advice if you've not been to Kalkan before. Also Seskin, who is in the apartment office just over the wall is a font of advice and will help answer questions and is friendly and happy to help I can recommend Sunrise Boat (docks at The Indigo Beach Club section at the harbour), restaurants La Marina, Aubergine, Gironda, Brothers, cafe Vita, La Sera hammam spa .... sure I've missed others. Nora at Can Can grocery shop is helpful, she noticed I was accidentally buying a bottle of yoghurt rather than milk 😊 I saw the most fish snorkelling at Kulube bay and near mud island. I find the people in Kalkan very welcoming and am happy and feel safe holidaying there as a single person. Try it !

Magical stay in beautiful Kalkan

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the villa for a week, and had a really lovely time. The villa itself is both beautiful and practical. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped, and the pool and terrace are exactly what you would want from a holiday villa. We particularly liked the roof terrace, which provides magical views of the surrounding area and is a very pleasant place to enjoy a relaxing drink after a tough day of sunbathing! The flowers in the garden are delightful too. The location is secluded, which is ideal as the town is pretty lively, but is only short ten minute walk away. Kalkan itself is a bustling little place, with a nice mix of restaurants, shops, and bars, and has some nice 'beach clubs' that are a pleasant way to pass the day- Yali was our favourite, and is a bit more upmarket than the rest. I would thoroughly recommend this villa, and Kalkan- we can't wait to go back.

best views over Kalkan

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th trip to this villa and our 6th to Kalkan and I can recommend Villa Barinak without hesitation. We tried villas closer to the old town but they are more cramped together and not so well equipped. If we were feeling too well fed from the many excellent restaurants in the town we hailed a taxi and for less than £2 they dropped us at the door.

Susan replied to all our enquiries very promptly and kindly.

As a group we felt we had a well rested and fun time and thinking about returning next year !
