"Fantastic Stay"
We were all blown away by the luxury of our villa. We arrived very late and the welcome pack provided of fruit, bread, jam, cheese, milk, tea, coffee and water was fantastic! Our villa was set in the gated community of LeVanta just outside the town center. The overwhelming smell of lavender as you walk freely around the grounds is wonderful. Our villa was stunning with an amazing infinity pool overlooking the sea, however, the patio area is very slippery when wet so would have been extremely worried had there been children with us. I would say that this villa has one of the best positions as its right on the front of the development. There was enough outside seating, which we used most afternoons and evenings but the BBQ provided was very poor compared to our neighbouring villas. I must say that the kitchen was the best I have stayed in, it had every mod con you could wish for and plenty of crockery, cooking equipment and wine/beer glasses. There is nothing bad I can say about this villa, the bedrooms were fantastic with lovely views from all three, the bathrooms were great, we loved having the washing machine to wash out swimwear. The lounge area is very comfortable, again plenty of seating for 6 of us. We were grateful for the choice of DVDs a couple of evenings too! The cleaner’s visit midway through our stay was a bonus. Kalkan town was nearby but we would suggest a car if staying at Oceanic as there is no safe route to walk into town. Taxis are reasonable and can be arranged at reception so would suggest to use them for an evening out. We loved having the communal area at the Club House and Cocktail Bar. We spent a few days around their communal infinity pool, which was a nice change from our own pool or one of the many beaches or beach clubs in Kalkan. We all said we would definitely return to this villa and would have no hesitation recommending to friends and family. We LOVED it!

"Just the most relaxing, enjoyable holiday ever"
We had an amazing time. The villa was amazing, Kalkan was beautiful and the local people were incredibly polite, friendly and honest. We have stayed before. Since then, the addition of the small restaurant and bar has made the main pool area much more attractive. The food there was not as cheap as some places in Kalkan, but the food was nice and the company from the lads at the bar area was always great.

"we plan to return next year"
We arrived late at night and were immediately impressed by the interior. Very clean and well appointed with modern fittings,etc. the patio and pool were stunning in the lighting and steamy evening air. The next morning we were stunned by the amazing view over Kalamar bay. The patio and garden were lovely with some beautiful shrubs and plants. The covered area of the patio came in very useful, shading us from the fierce sun. Overall we have no complaints about the property, we would recommend it without hesitation, indeed we plan to return next year. Just 1 issue about the property: the patio loungers. The decking is not wide enough for the four corners and we had to be careful not to fall off the back off the deck. ( not a great drop). Other issue not to do with the property is that La Vanta resort has a bar and (very nice) cafe. We read on The Turquoise Collection web site in relation to La Vanta that there is a market for essentials nearby that would negate the need to go into the town. There is no such market. Although it is not a problem, Kalkan is the nearest for shops. Taxi fares are a set 20 TL each way and pick up and set down at the door.
