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.

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!

Magical stay in beautiful Kalkan
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.
We cannot thank you enough for such a wonderful review! We're so glad you had such a wonderful holiday and look forward to welcoming you again! I particularly love the sunsets from the ottoman area! 🌅
best views over Kalkan
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 !
Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback! I'm so glad you enjoyed your return visit and look forward to welcoming you again in the future.
A pretty pebble beach near the harbour is a 15 min walk away. Super 'beach clubs' which have been built into the rocks are a 5 minute drive away, with free transport. They have loungers, parasols, showers & snack bar, & direct access into the clear, clean waters. Water sports are also available. Kaputas' sandy beach is sited at the bottom of a gorge and is a short drive or boat ride from Kalkan. The acclaimed Patara beach is 18km long and is about 15 minutes away by car.
Dalaman airport is 90 mins from Kalkan. Car hire is not essential as the villa is within walking distance to Kalkan's centre, plus taxi fares are reasonable and public transport is good. Many tourist sites can be accessed by dolmus and numerous excursions depart from Kalkan by coach or boat.
